NOWLAN—M'CORMACK. A quiet, though pretty wedding, took place at Moora Moora, Lake Cowal, the residence of Mr Thomas M'Cormack, on Thursday, November 23rd (says the Wyalong "Star"). The contracting parties were Mr James Grant, only son of Mr and Mrs Now- lan, of Wentworth Station, Bimbi, and Miss Annie Vera, fifth daughter of Mr and Mrs M'Cormack. They were joined in the holy bonds of matri- mony by the Rev. Father M'Cusker (Wyalong), assisted by the Rev. Father Keating, of Grenfell. The wedding was of a private char- acter, being confined to the personal friends and relatives of the M'Cor- mack and Nowlan families, this being considered judicious, owing to the failing health of the father of the bride. The bride was given away by her father, and looked charming, attir- ed in a bridal gown .of ivory satin charmeuse, arranged with centre tunic of ninon-de-soie, and Carricm- &nbsp; cross lace, caught at the waist with a pearl embroidered girdle, and fin- ished with pearl tassel...

The deceased lady, who had reached the ripe age of 65 years, had been &nbsp; ailing of late, and on Wednesday last was visited by Dr. Boazman, of Parkes. A turn for the better then took place, and it was felt her return to good health was assured, but sad to relate, her demise occurred early on Sunday, as stated, shortly after having partaken of a cup of tea in bed. Deceased was in the act of dressing, when she complained of feeling unwell, and in a few moments the life that had accomplished such noble work in this world had passed away to a better land, the cause of death being heart failure. Hers was a peaceful ending to a long and useful career, and was fortified with all the consolation of Christian thoughts and kindness. The house of M...

JOHN BRADSHAW. THE LAST OF THE BUSHRANGERS. John Bradshaw, who signs himself "The Last of the Bushrangers," and who has been lecturing in Forbes during the past week, writes us as follows— Sir,—Having read the fake and disgraceful scribble written up by Ambrose Pratt on the unfortunate man, Dan Kelly, I ask you, in the name of fair play and common justice, to publish this article in your paper for me, showing a most deserving light on a name darkened by this strange pig-rooter against the defenceless dead. This pragmatical would-be historian commences in his "Fool-the-Public" preface, by say- ing:—"No man now living can either authenticate, or authoritatively dispute the claim put forward in these memoirs.'' Now, then, in a short space in your paper I will not only dispute, but prove Pratt to be &nbsp; wrong by his own dates and &nbsp; &nbsp; assertions given in his treacherous books of glaring misstatements. Taking from page 14 in this horribie slimy fake, I...
