A telegram received by Senior-sergeant O'Driscoll from Senior-constable Boudet, of Harrisville, stated that Anthony Zillmann, 9 years of age, a son of Mr. Henry Zillmann, blacksmith, of the One-eye Waterhole district, was accidentally drowned on Saturday last whilst bathing in a waterhole.

On Sunday, the 13th instant, a boy, named Antonie Zillmann, lost his life whilst bathing in a waterhole at the One-eye. It appears that the boy was sent with a younger brother to get the cows, and, on the way, come to a waterhole. The boys stripped and got in. The elder, Antonie, made to get out on the bank, where his clothes were. The bank, being undermined, gave way with him, precipitating him into the hole again. He rose twice, and then sank, not being able to swim. The younger brother ran home to his father's place, about half-a-mile away, and told him about the accident. The father, accompanied by Hermann Badke, ran to the hole, on reaching which Badke jumped in, and brought the body up from the bottom, where it had sunk. Although deceased had been in the water half-an-hour, efforts were made to restore life, but without avail. A magisterial inquiry was held by Robert Dunn, Esq., on the following day.

168 1888 'A CHAPTER OF ACCIDENTS.', Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald and General Advertiser (Qld. : 1861 - 1908), 5 January, p. 7. , viewed 07 Sep 2016,

Another very lamentable case of drowning occured, in the Bremer River, yesterday afternoon. About half-past 3 o'clock the four sons of William Oldham, the well-known bootmaker, of Ellenborough street, were, with one or two other little fellows, fishing in the river in the vicinity of the railway bridge. Little James Oldham, aged nine and a half years, pulled off his boots, and, unnoticed by his elder brothers, began, as it is thought, to splash about in the shallow water at the edge of the bank. At all events, the anglers were startled by seeing the boy struggling in deep water, and it is thought that he got out of his depth when attempting to reach a stick that was floating up with the incoming tide. The deceased's eldest brother, who was a short distance away, at once rushed to the spot, but as he could not swim, all he could do was to hold out a piece of wood for his brother to grasp. This did not reach the little fellow or he was too flurried to catch hold of it, and his brothers were horrified by seeing him drown a few feet away from them without being able to assist him in any way. The cries of the drowning lad and the witnesses of the affair attracted Mr. C. W. Rich, of the Custom house, whose son, Douglas Rich, aged sixteen, ran to the river-bank, and, on being informed of what has transpired, immediately plunged into the river. In the meantime, one of Mr. Oldham's sons had told him of the occurence, and he lost no time in getting to the scene of the accident. With him a young fellow, named Michael Ryan, who resides opposite the old railway station, proceeded to the spot, and jumped into the water. A large number of persons allege that he found the body, and took it out on to the bank ; while others affirm that it was Douglas Rich who discovered and rescued the corpse. Be that as it may, the lad was found almost ten yards from where he was first seen in the river (between the large pillars of the bridge). A crowd of people soon collected round the place, and, under the direction of Dr. Channing Neill, various means were resorted to for some considerable time to restore respiration, but all efforts were unavailing. It was hoped by many of those present that life had not departed, for the boy could not have been more than five minutes in the river, but at length all were compelled to admit that their exertions had been futile, and the body was sorrowfully carried up the street to his bereaved father's residence, where, a few short hour's before, the lad had been enjoying himself with the rest of the family. The deceased was the fourth son of Mr. Oldham, and his funeral will leave his late home in Ellenborough-street at 4 o'clock this afternoon.

Morpeth. DEATH OF AN EX-MAYOR Death has taken away another old resident of Morpeth, Mr. Thomas Jones, for many years one of the most popular men in the district, having gone over to the great majority. The deceased was born in Bristol, in England, in the year 1824, and was, consequently, 65 years of age. He came to the colonies in 1856, landing in Melbourne, but soon after coming to this colony, when he settled in East Maitland, and married his first wife, a daughter of the late Mr. John Cobcroft. About twenty-six years back he removed to Morpeth, where he did a large tailoring business, and a few years since carried on branches in Newcastle and Wallsend, till failing health compelled him to relinquish first the branches, and finally the Morpeth business. Being elected an alderman about eighteen years ago, he soon became one of the most popular men in the community, clear in his ideas, and gifted with a power of speech possessed by few, and, what is still more rare, very seldom displaying undue elation when successful, or annoyance when defeated. He took a leading part in the affairs of the town, and won and retained the respect of all parties to the last. He was mayor for the year 1880, but declined to allow himself to be nominated for the position again. About two years ago he was attacked by a severe sickness, from the effects of which he never completely recovered. Latterly he suffered from general debility, and passed quietly away at about midnight on Wednesday last. He leaves a widow and eight sons and daughters. The interment took place in the Church of England Cemetery, a very large number of residents joining in the mournful procession.

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.

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)
