Death of Mr. Norman Gillies. We have to record the death of of of the early settlers of these northern districts in the person of Mr. N. Gillies, of Boort, which sad event took place on Sunday even ing. The deceased gentleman, who was 78 years of age, has enjoyed good health until recently, when it &nbsp; &nbsp; was seen that he was gradually failing, but no serious results was expected. About a week before his death, however, he was seized with a bad turn, and medical ad &nbsp; vice obtained gave out little hope of recovery, as the system was worn out. He rapidly failed, the cause of his death being senile decay. Mr. Gillies, who was a native of Inverness, Scotland, arrived in Victoria in 1854, while the gold fever was at its height. When the land rush in these parts was at its height nearly 40 years ago Mr. Gillies, with his wife and family, selected a block on the Avoca River, close to the township of Quamba took, and went through all the hardships which t...
