NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 September 1860

NEW SOUTH WALES.       Discovery of Human Bones.- On Thursday last a young man named Osborne, son of Mrs. Osborne, settler, near Shelly's Flat was out on the ranges known as the Grampian Hills, about two   miles from Shelly's Flats, when he discovered a number of human bones lying together on the ground as though they had belonged to some person who had lain and died there. The remains comprised a skull and tho bones of the arms, legs, and thighs. They wore quite blanched, there being no hair on the skull nor flesh on the bones. Information was given yesterday to the police in Goulburn, and a constable will be sent down to- day to bring the bones in, when an inquiry will be held. It is thought, a clue to the identity of the remains may be found in the foilowing circumstances.

INDIAN CAPTIVES. The St. Louis Republican has the following from   its correspondent at Tubac, under date April :- " The following thrilling details of captivity, savage barbarity, suffering, and final restoration to her friends of one whose misfortunes have lately filled the public ear, will be read with interest. The writer has taken the story as it fell from her own   lips, and gives it to the public without embellish- ment ; I had, been married but little over two   months, and was living with my husband, Mr. J. H. Page, in a rude cabin at the mouth of the grand canon leading to the pinery of the Santa Rita Mountains. Our family consisted of myself and husband, a little Mexican girl 11 years of age, Misare Kirklaiid, and Mr. William RandaIl, who was engaged with my husband in the lumber business. On the morning of the 16th of March, after an early breakfast, my husband left us at camp for the purpose of putting some Mexicans to work, and Mr...

SPORTING AT GREEN PONDS. [FROM OUE OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 25 September 1860

^ SPORTING AT GREEN PONDS. [FROM OUE OWN CORRESPONDENT.] The Melton Mowbray Beagles met in the centro of the town of Green Ponds at half-past eleven o'clock on Friday. It was a fine day for hunting, a little cloudy, and somewhat damp after Wednes day's'rain, with tho wind beautifully correct, a real spring day without a single drawback, and as may be accurately presumed, the novelty of such a scene-hounds and hunters sporting their scarlet -drew together a numerous assemblage of spec- tators. The field, according to previous arrange- ment, proceeded on to the estate of Mr. Hodden, when the beagles were at once thrown off. The draw was somewhat tedious, but a fine plucked kangaroo amply repaid the anxious Nimrods for this seeming delay. Once on the wing every effort was tried to baffle and elude his pursuers. It was a most exciting 11m over one of the best hunting countries in the island, clean and clear, with few break-neck fences. After a check of some seven miles gone over in a sh...
