In that Bathurst Gaol there were sadder   things still to learn. Two months     prior to my being summoned as a witness in Larry's case, a double murder had been committed some fifty miles from Bathurst. The circumstances were briefly these:—A   man named George Sebastian, who had just arrived in the colony from California, called at a settler's hut, in which lived a shepherd and his reputed wife. The travel- ler had with him about twenty-five ounces of gold. This he very imprudently turned out on the hut table to show the shepherd. Cupidity was thus excited; and in the   ...

After considerable i search, I finally discovered thelocality wheic these birds bring forth their young. M igl' up in one of the deep, dark gorges that put into the turbulent Sespe, a few miles above Devil's Gate on the west side of the stream, ' at analtitude of more than four thousand feet, the home of the vulture was discovered, with all its strange and peculiar features.
