Monday, June 17.
(Before the Police Magistrate and Mr. James Foote.)
DANGEROUS LUNATIC.
Emma Shard was brought before the Bench on suspicion of being of unsound mind.
John Walker, lockup keeper, deposed to having taken the prisoner in charge that morning from her husband.
Henry Shard, husband of prisoner; deposed that she had not been in her proper senses for the past month ; she had been violent for the past two weeks; she had been previously in the Ipswich Hospital for general treatment, and had become insane while there; witness was unable to take care of her, and was desirous of having her placed under proper supervision, as she was not fit to be at liberty.
Dr. W. M. Dorsey deposed that he had at the desire of the Police Magistrate proceeded to the Pine Mountain, to the residence of the prisoner, and found her in a similar state to that in which she appeared before the Court; she had been a patient of his own some two years ago; believed her to be suffering from mania which required medical treatment, and that she was unfit to be at large in regard to her own safety and that of others; he recommended her removal to the lunatic reception-house, Brisbane; he had prescribed medicine for her, which she refused to take. The Bench committed the prisoner to the lunatic reception-house, Brisbane, for one month.

On Monday last we had a dangerous lunatic before the Bench - a poor woman named Emma Shard, whose appearance was of the most pitiable description. Dr. Dorsey having examined the poor woman, who was brought under the notice of the Bench by her husband, recommended her to be taken to the Lunatic Reception House for treatment - an order for which was accordingly made. I question much whether she will long remain a trouble to any institution.

We have this week to record the death not of one of the oldest but veritably, the oldest resident of the town of Mudgee Mrs William Blackman, who died on Friday morning last, the 19th instant, at her residence near Mudgee at the ripe old age of 72 years, settled in this district with her husband (the late Mr William Blackman) some forty years ago. They were for many years engaged in business in the town, where by strict attention and business habits, they amassed a considerable property, at the same time gaining the esteem and respect of the surrounding inhabitants. The subject of this obituary notice was a native of the colony, being born in the Hawkesbury district. Mrs William Blackman was of a charitable, kindly disposition and will be much missed by the many recipients of her bounty. She leaves two sons, both married, and one daughter (Mrs N. P. Bayly) besides a numerous family of grandchildren.

OBITUARY.
Sarah Maria Claydon, born at Dublin, Ireland, January 13, 1829, died at Ulladulla, New South Wales, December 23, 1876, daughter of John and Mary Faulks, and wife of Henry Claydon, of Ulladulla, sister to William Faulks of Woodburn, Ulladulla, John Faulks of Meroo, Shoalhaven, Robert Faulks of Cullingar, Murrumburrah, Mrs. James Boxsell of Murrumburrah, Mrs. Henry Tuckerman of Ulladulla, and Mr. George Faulks of Shoalhaven.
For any one person to do justice to the character of the late Mrs. Henry Claydon would be a difficult task. I am not fond of eulogising the dead. Only in a very few cases, among the numbers that cross over to the other side, is it prudent to say a word of praise, or hang an "immortelle" on the tombstone. We are all prone to think too lightly of those that are near and dear to us—it is doubtless the natural instinct (or something nobler) of our nature to speak well of the dead. Well that is so. But during one's lifetime we are apt to come in contact with here and there an exceptional case - some character that amid all the gloomy surroundings of a chequered life stands out as a bright light, shining in spite of all obsacles, clear, distinct, unmistakeable. Such an one, in my humble opinion, was the late Sarah Maria Claydon. Born amidst the stern discipline of the soldiers' camp in the quarters at Dublin where the regiment then lay, in which her father was a private, we may be quite sure that the early days of our friend and benefactress was not of the most gentle kind. Mr. and Mrs. Faulks came to this colony with their family soon after the birth of the subject of this memoir, with the Regiment, doing duty in various parts of the colony. At length, having retired from military service he was appointed district constable, and in the course of time abandoned that sphere of labour, and retired into private life. Since the year 1836 the family have been located in this and the Shoalhaven district, and from the old veteran of nearly four score years to the youngest grandchild, all seem to enjoy the respect and esteem of the inhabitants.
About twenty years ago Sarah Maria Claydon became intimately associated with the Wesleyan Methodists, becoming a member of the Church, and aiding that body in all its efforts to extend the Kingdom of Christ. The early days of Mrs. Claydon and her partner in this district were surrounded with all the up-hill difficulties attendant upon our early settlers. Clearing, fencing and putting a 100-acre block of rich land in order, besides building houses, &c., was no easy task in those days, and many of our old residents remember seeing her at work burning off and clearing with as much energy as her stalwart partner. The heavy lift with the handspike was no unusual thing for Mrs. Claydon wh she and her husband determined upon clearing a paddock. Gradually the work was accomplished, the beautiful home erected, the farm cleared, and the tide of prosperity turned in their favour. From small beginnings they gradually became possessed of a comforable competency - and something else must be undertaken. Never having been a mother herself, it will be thought more surprising that all her thoughts seemed centered upon alleviating the ufferings of her sisters in nature's extremity. Commencing a medical career in this direction, she has been a friend in need to hundreds of persons in this district. Gradually extending her studies she at length became the adviser and the nurse of not only females, but all who needed a careful adviser, and a skilful nurse. Her stock of drugs and appliances would not disgrace a medical practitioner, and her works upon medicine, surgery, &c., were studied with a degree of perseverance and application that would have placed M.D. before many a one's name, not more deserving. For sixteen years Mrs. Claydon has been at the beck and call of every person, rich and poor who might be desirous of obtaining her services. Often times she has left her home amid storm and tempest in the middle of the night to render assistance in nature's woes; and when all was over she has frequently had to go into the stockyard, milk the cows, do the washing and household work for days at a time.
Need I say anything about her private charities, money, time, labour, anxiety, and years of anxious solitude in rearing, training, and educating those that needed a mother's care but had not a mother to care for them? No! they are household words.
On Sunday afternoon the remains of Mrs. Claydon were consigned to their last resting place in the Wesleyan burial-ground, being a portion of the estate owned by Mr. Claydon, and presented some years ago to the Wesleyan body for church purposes.
The funeral cortege numbered nearly 300, and was represented by all shades of opinion in this district. A respectable requisition has been handed to the Mayor,
for him to call a public meeting to take steps to erect a suitable memorial to the memory of Mrs. Claydon. In conclusion, I may simply add that she was loved, honoured, and respected during her life, and all in this district deeply sympathise with her excellent partner and venerable father in the loss that they have sustained by her decease. Her presence in the sick chamber was such as only a Florence Nightingale could eclipse. Every requisite of the careful nurse, with all the little etcetras, were instantly sought after, procured, and applied. Such was the character of Sarah Maria Claydon, who, amid all her anxiety and care for other people's welfare was for year carrying about with her the germs of an insidous disease, often rendiering her life almost unbearable, until at length she was compelled reluctantly to abandon her philanthropical exertion in the cause of humanity, and lay herself down to endure anguish and pain of body for months, until relieved at last by Death. The daughter of an old soldier, as she lived so she died - true to her colors - "Duty" her wachword. - Communicated

An inquest was held at Wilberforce, on Saturday last, before Mr. J. B. Johnston, J.P., coroner, and a jury, on the body of John Thomas Dunstan, wheelwright and carpenter, of Wilberforce, who died suddenly on the 12th instant. It appears that deceased and his apprentice went out about 7 o'clock in the morning to work at building a house in Bowd's paddock. About half-past 9 deceased laid down his saw, and then laid down himself and died in a short time. From the evidence of his brother, Richard William Dunstan, the deceased had been afflicted with disease of the heart for many years. Dr. Dalgarno was called to see the deceased, but death had taken place before he arrived. The doctor had no doubt of disease of the heart being the cause of death. The jury found a verdict in accordance with the medical opinion. Mr. Dunstan was comparatively a young man, and was much respected. His funeral on Sunday last was very largely attended. He leaves a young widow and two children.

Jane Turnbull, wife of Bartholomew Turnbull, of Colo, deposed, deceased was her son; he had been subject to epileptic fits from his childhood; about two o'clock p.m. on the 11th instant, from something one of her children told her, she proceeded to the river, a short distance from the house; the first thing she saw was deceased's hat lying on the grass; she looked into the water and saw something which she thought was his body; witness waded into the water about three yards and brought deceased to shore; an aboriginal carried him to the grass; life was still in him; witness then got blankets and warmed him, which soon brought him to; shortly afterwards he fell asleep, and slept for about an hour; his father then aroused him, and with his assistance he got up and walked into the house; witness put dry clothes on, and deceased laid on the sofa; suddenly he had a violent fit of coughing and vomited a quantity of blood; he appeared to be dozing; the coughing continued and his breathing got shorter; we then got alarmed; about a quarter past 7 in the evening he died; witness' son Wilfred had told her that deceased had a fit on the river bank and rolled into the river; he tried to keep him back but was unable; the water reached witness' chin where she found the body.

The jury returned a verdict to the effect that deceased met his death through falling into the Colo River whilst in a fit.
