It appears that his mother,- upon learning tho result of the trial Hint her erring son was condemned to dio, started for Sydney on foot, nnd borne up by the deep and holy feelings of a mother's nature, she reached hor destination, and had an interview with Justico Thcrry and tho Governor-General, with what success it is unnecessary for us to state. Having, as she thought, fulfilled the object of her mission, sho started back jo Hatlmrst, and until she reached the town, which was several days after tho execution, was utterly ignorant of the boy's fate.
