COBCROFT. - Just one month to-day since
Our darling child passed away,
The trial is hard, I will not complain,
But trust to meet in Heaven again.
Inserted by her loving parents, Oliver and Emily Cobcroft.
All alone in the grave we laid our little darling to rest ;
Cold are the sods that are heaped on her dear little breast.
My darling is in Heaven where fain I would he.
Oh, Madeline, darling, I am ever thinking of thee.

Another inquest was held at Cudgegong on Tuesday last, before Mr. Wootton, coroner, on the body of a miner named Richard Gow, who had died shortly before at Mr. Oldfield's Hotel. From the evidence of a mate it appeared that the deceased had taken ill sometime previously of a severe cold at Crudine. His mate brought him to Cudgegong, and both he and the inn-keeper attended him till he died. He persistently refused to either see a doctor or be taken to Mudgee, where he could be properly treated. He had friends in Sydney, to whom he wrote, and was well connected. The medical evidence went to show that the complaint had got too firm a hold on him before his removal to Cudgegong, and that his inability to take nourishment was attributable to weakness, consequent on a very severe cold. Deceased was an old man, and his body was much emaciated. The jury found that death was caused by inflammation of the kidneys or lungs, brought on by weakness and exposure.

Amid the sylvan scenery of Sackville Reach an interesting wedding took place lately, when Miss Charlotte Fleming Dunstan, daughterof Mr. T. Dunstan, was united to the Rev. William King Howell, of Gulgong. St. Thomas's Church was filled with friends and friendly spectators ; and the ceremony was performed by the incumbent (the Rev. J. Morgan, assisted by the Rev . C. and W. Dunstan (brothers of the bride). Mrs. Morgan presided at the organ, and played a pretty voluntary as the bridal party entered the building. The bride was attired in a pretty dress of cream liberty silk, adorned with orange blossoms, lace, and ribbons, and were the usual tulle veil and wreath. The bridesmaids wore Miss M. Dunstan (dressed in blue silk, maize lace, and ribbons), Misses S. Stubbs andLillie Turnbull (in fawn cashmere and pink ribbons), and Misses Grace Aspery and Amy Turnbull (who wore slate cashmere, trimmed with blue). Each lady carried a beautiful bouquet ; the bride's hoing a very chaste composition of oleanders (white) and maidenhair fern. As the bridal party returned down the aisle from the altar several young lady friends strewed flowers on the way ; and the choir sang " The Voice that Breathed o'er Eden." The bridegroom was accompanied by his brothers Mr. Herbert and Master Frank Howell. Tho wedding breakfast was served at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. T. Dunstan ; and shortly afterward the happy couple started amid the good wishes of numerous friends for Sydney en route for Camden to spend the honeymoon. Among the presents was a handsome clock presented to the bride by Mr. Morgan on behalf of the parishioners in recognition of several years free service in connection with the church.

DROWNING FATALITY AT SOUTH CREEK.
[BY TELEGRAPH.]
(FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.)
WINDSOR, WEDNESDAY.
This afternoon a sad fatality happened in South
Creek. Two young men, named William Armour and William Dunstan, son of Alderman Dunstan, went out in the creek in a flat-bottomed dingy. When in the middle of the stream the craft filled with water and sank. Armour called to Dunstan to keep himself up for a while, and then swan towards the bridge. He was picked up by Mr. James Byram, jun., who was in a boat close to where the accident happened. Senior-sergeant Fitzpatrick, who was in the boat, saw Dunstan hands go up in the air, and heard him call : he then disappeared. Rescue parties are still searching, hoping that by some means he has been carried to a tree or some other place of safety.
Great sympathy is expressed for Mr. R. Dunstan, his father.

Death of an Early Hawkesbury Settler.
A Kempsey subscriber send us a clipping from the "Macleay Chronicle," from which we extract the following : - The death of William Bligh Turnbull removed from our midst an honest citizen, a loving husband, a kind father, a sincere friend, and closed the earthly career of the last member of the original Turnbull family. Mr Turnbull, senr., made one of the number of the second shipment of free settlers that came to the colony. He selected land on the Hawkesbury River at Ebenezer, where he spent the remainder of his days. His youngest child, William Bligh, was born at Ebenezer on the 8th of June, 1809, just about the time those exceptionally heavy floods which caused so much loss of property and life, visited the Hawkesbury River. Previous to coming to the Macleay, he occupied the greater portion of his time farming, but for some time he was trading to Sydney with a vessel called the La Casquarie. He was married in February 1838, and his eldest son, William John, and nine other children were born in the Hawkesbury district. Mr. Turnbull arrived at Kempsey during the month of December, 1868, and resided there until his death. The unfortunate circumstances which brought about his death are well-known and it is generally understood, that had it not been for an accident of the painful nature he would probably have lived many years, possessed as he was of that excellent physique which was the distinctive feature in his father's family. After the accident he lingered on to the end in a comatose condition with intervals of lucid reason. All that good nursing and attention could do did not avail, and he quietly drooped and died on the 11th inst. His remains were conveyed to their last resting place at Euroka cemetary the day following his death, a large number of people being present to pay their last tribute of reverence and respect. In the Hawkesbury district as well as on the Macleay he leaves a large circle of relations and friends to morn their loss. William Bligh Turnbull did not take any very prominent part either in political or religious matters, but, uninfluenced by theological hatred and free from sectarian bigotry, he tried to perform his duty prudently and independently, and did not suffer himself to be swayed by personal bias or popular prejudice. His genial and kind hearted disposition, his integrity and probity, won respect wherever he was known. There is little to add. No eulogies that we can make can in any way add to the purity of the reputation he leaves behind him. He was an honest man. To him may be applied the concluding words addressed by Antony to Octavius and Messala:-
His life was gentle ; and the elements
So mixed in him that Nature might stand up
And say to all the world: This was a man.
May the record of his useful life be an incentive to all earnest men and women to endeavour to follow the example he has set. 
TURNBULL, William Bligh (I22295)

On Wednesday last, a well-known native of the Hawkesbury District, named Mrs. Mary Ann Dawson, died at the age of 89. The deceased lady was a daughter of the late Dr. Moore, and had been married three times. She was born at Hominy Point, and resided at one time in Wilberforce, and at another in Windsor, being in business in the premises now occupied by Messrs. Cupitt and R. Bolton. Mrs. Dawson was the daughter of the first free white woman who landed on Australian soil, and was remarkable for her kindly disposition. Mr. T. Collison ably conducted the funeral.

Death of Mr. J. B. Laverack.
The death is announced of Mr. J. B. Laverack, who many years ago was a resident of Windsor.

The service in St. Stephen's Church last Sunday was of an unusual nature. It was somewhat memorial in its character, and had reference to the recent death of Mr. John Dunstan, senior, who was one of the oldest residents of this district and was held in the highest respect by all who knew him.

The congregation was large, and there were several persons present from Windsor and Richmond who had come to show their respect for one whom they had known so well and esteemed so highly. The hymns and lessons chosen were suitable for the occasion, and the singing was especially appropriate, subdued, and effective. The Rev. M. Gray, who was conducting the service, said they were met under circumstances of unusual sadness and sorrow. They had just lost one who had been connected with the Church for many years, and whose many sons and daughters had been active and useful members of it from their childhood. He would take a well-known text, and one that would enable him to make a few brief references to their departed brother, and especially to his last experiences. That text was, "Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his." - Numbers 23-10. In his introduction the preacher pointed out the circumstances which gave rise to the words of the text, and in doing so stated that they were spoken by Balaam as he stood on a hill and looked down upon fhe orderly and peaceful camp of the Jews on the plains of Moab. He thought a better translation would be - May my life end like the lives of the Israelites, and may my last experiences be like theirs. But he would take the words as they stood, and use them accordingly.

Firstly, who was the righteous man whose death, or last experiences, were so desirable ? The preacher showed that the righteous man was one who believed in God, and loved and served Him, and who was just, merciful and loving to his fellowmen ; and that a merely honest and moral life, and an outward and formal religion, did not constitute a man righteous before God. He was sure that those who had known Mr. Dunston for many years could testify that the had endeavoured to life the life of the righteous. It could be said of him that he "did justly, and loved mercy, and walked humbly with his God."

Secondly, what was the death of the righteous ? It was only the separation of the soul from the body - the return of the mortal body to its original elements, and the transition of the immortal soul to the higher and better life of eternity. That doctrine had been one of comfort to the deceased in his illness, for he of comfort to the bereaved family, for they knew that, although they had laid their father's body in the tomb, yet his soul had gone to God, where they could again meet him. Thirdly, what were the inner, or the mental and spiritual, experiences of the righteous in death ? The Bible told them much, and dying Christians told them much. It embraced many things, among which were - the righteous man in death could look back upon his godly and useful life with much satisfaction ; he did not absolutely fear death ; he realized peace and hope ; and he had an assurance that after death his soul would pass into a better and happier condition. The preacher enlarged upon these points, and showed that, in each case, the late Mr. Dunston had fully realized all this satisfaction, and confidence, and peace, and assurance, in his painful illness and last experiences. After urging upon those present the importance of living righteous lives, and holding themselves ready for death, the preacher said that he was confident they all united in the truest sympathy for the bereaved family, and in the hope that they would meet their departed parent in Heaven.

Very considerable regret was expressed in town early on Saturday morning (says the Rockhampton Bulletin of the 28th ult,) when it became known that Mr. George Gibson, one of the owners of Withersfield station and formerly manager of Gordon Downs Station, had died overnight. Mr. Gibson has been in failing health for time past; but a residence of several months in Rockhampton seemed to work a change for the better. A fortnight ago he left for his station, intending to be away only two or three days; but the Journey by rail, and thence to the head station by road, proved too much for him and on his arrival there he felt very much exhausted. On Friday morning, however, he started for Rockhampton; but on the way down, and when near his journey's end, he became suddenly worse, and at one stage unconscious. The train reached town at half-past nine o'clock, in the, evening, and about half an hour later?at the Railway Hotel?he breathed his last. Mr. Gibson was an old resident of this part of the country, and had a large circle of friends, by whom his death his death will be very regretted. He was a stepson of Mr. F.N. Beddek, once Clerk of Petty Session at Rockhmapton, and brother of Mrs. A. F. Wood, of this town. He was was also related to Mr. Johnstone, Police Magisstrate. [Mr Gibson was related to Mrs. D.] Connor and others of Mackay. Ed. MER.

The Late Mrs. L. Turnbull.
[CONTRIBUTED.]
Louisa Turnbull, the subject of this notice, was born at Portland Head, Hawkesbury River, on the 6th day of July, 1809, her father, Thomas Chasling, having come out with one of the ships bearing the first of the free settlers to New South Wales. Mrs. Turnbull was the last of the old family of Chaselings. In early life she was married to George Turnbull, and about 59 years ago they moved on to the farm at Sackville where they passed the remaining years of their life. They entered into their Sackville home, with their two children, with the determination to do right - first in their own family, and then to the district they lived in - and right nobly did they carry out this resolve. Many of the residents on the River remember George Turnbull - ever the same kindly neighbour, the faithful friend, the diligent worker, the practical Christian. Mr. and Mrs. Turnbull brought up a family of eleven sons and daughters, and buried one in infancy. Belonging to the Presbyterian Church, they naturally looked about for a place in which to worship, and identified themselves with what was then known as the Union Church, where all Protestants - laying aside all sectarian differences - used to meet. For many years they and their children, and their childrens' children, have helped to swell the assemblage of those who keep the Sabbeth holy. About seven years ago Mrs. Turnbull was left a widow, and after recovering in a measure from the shock of this bereavement, she seemed to take a new lease of life, and up to quite recently enjoyed her erstwhile bright and happy spirits. When the messenger came he brought a kindly message- no hard suffering, no painful struggle - a few days of gradual sinking, and then, surrounded by loving friends, she crossed the boundary-line, and went to the place to which she had been for some time looking forward as her permanent home. Mrs. Turnbull's family numbered 12 sons and daughters, 91 grand-children, and 81 great-grand-children. Her remains were interred in the Cmetery at Ebenezer, and were followed thither by a large number of sincere mourners. The service in the Church was conducted by the Rev. John Ayling, and at the grave by the Rev. R. Johnstone. And so we left, thinking of her -
More than lovely life ; that when the thrall
Of earth was loosened, it seemed as tho' a pall
Of years were lifted, and thou didst appear
Such as of old amidst thy home's calm sphere.
Thou sat'st, a kindly presence, felt by all,
In joy or grief, from night till evening fall,
The peaceful genius of that Mansion dear.

MRS. RICHARD SOLWAY.
We regret io have to record the death of Mrs. Solway, the wife of Mr. Solway, of Nowra Hill. Mrs. Solway was ill only one week, and died on Wednesday last of pneumonia. She was a very old resident of the district, as also is her husband, and was well known and much esteemed by neighbours for her kind and benevolent disposition. She was a most affectionate mother, and was strongly attached to her family, several of whom are grown up and occupy respectable positions in society. In all the deceased had led an exemplary life. She was a consistent member of the Roman Catholic Church, and the large cortege that followed the remains to the place of interment at the Roman Catholic cemetery on Thursday was sufficient evidence of the esteem in which the deceased was held by a large circle of friends and acquaintance. Much sympathy is expressed for Mr. Solway and family in their bereavement.

It is with regret we have to record this week the death of Mr. Charles Gow, for many years headmaster of the Carlingford Public School. Mr. Gow had been in ill health for some time, and with Mrs. Gow went to Bathurst last week, thinking the change would improve him, but he died there suddenly on Christmas day. He had recently been on leave, and his place at the school has been filled by Mr. Downey, his assistant. The news of his death came as a great surprise to his numerous friends in the district and Parramatta, only those intimately acquainted with him knowing that he was suffering from an affection of the lungs. For some time past he had been a conspicuous figure on the Rosehill Bowling green, where his geniality and courtesy won him troops of friends. He has been residing at Carlingford for the last 17 years, and has always taken a prominent part in everything for the welfare of the district. For a number of years he was superintendent of St. Paul's Sunday School and was a warden of the church during the whole time he has been in the district. A man of sterling character and respected by everybody around. Much regret was expressed that there was no opportunity to pay the last tribute of respect by attending his funeral. Had the interment taken place in his beloved St. Paul, the cortege would have been the largest seen in the district. He was buried in the family vault at St. Mary's on Thursday. The Rev. Dr. Corlette performed the ceremony at the grave, in the presence of a large number of mourners, including some Carlingford friends, among others the Mayor of Dundas (Mr. F. C. Cox) and Mr. Larcombe. He was 55 years of age and leaves a widow and one adopted daughter, with whom much sympathy is expressed. We could have spared a worse man.

DEATH OF MRS. EDWARDS.
After a long and painful illness of fifteen weeks, during which time she was tenderly nursed by her relatives, Mrs Emma Edwards, wife of the late Mr Richard Edwards, passed away last Saturday at five minutes to one o'clock at the age of 37 years and nine months, on the anniversary of her wedding, which took place at exactly the same hour thirteen years ago. Deceased (who was a daughter of the late John Dunstan, of Wilberforce) had been residing in her own property for some time in Dight-street, Windsor. She had been a great sufferer for many weeks from an internal complaint, and everything was done by her friends and medical attendant to ease her suffering, but without success. Death came as a happy release to her. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon at half-past 3, and was very largely attended. Deceased's late residence being near the Church of England Cemetery, it was arranged for the coffin to be carried, and this was done by four brothers-in-law of deceased (Messrs John and Henry Dunston, P Beveridge and Ralph Turnbull). On the arrival of the cortege at the cemetery, the party entered the Church, which was crowded. The Rev William Dunston, from Orange, cousin of deceased, conducted the service in the Church. After a hymn had been sung, (the Church choir taking part), the mourners proceeded to the grave, the Organist (Mr
F J Mortley) playing the Dead March in Saul. The Rev S G Fielding conducted the burial service, and over the grave gave an able and eloquent address, referring to the long and painful illness of the deceased, which he had every reason to think she had borne as a Christian should. The speaker at some length referred to the three shadows which passed over everyone's life - the shadows of Pain, Sin and Death. No one knew why God brought these upon them, and no one was likely ever to tell them. The Bible only told them. The speaker urged upon his bearers the importance of leading a Christian life. The punishment for the Shadow of Sin was Death. The discourse was most impressive. Amongst the mourners were the brothers-in-law referred to, Percy Edwards (son of deceased), brothers-in-law Roberts, A Tuckerman, Alfred Robinson, and other relatives. Deceased was buried with her husband. Amongst the floral tributes were those from Dr and Mrs Callaghan, Mr B Barnett and family, Mrs Carroll, Mrs Hall, Mrs E McQuade, Mrs W Pendergast, Mr and Mrs Rodda, and Miss Dunstan. Dr Callaghan attended upon deceased during her long illness. The duties of undertaker were ably carried out by R W Dunstan.
