THE BUCKLEY WILL CASE AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 23 February 1882

THE BUCKLEYi WILL CASE AGAIN, The litigation in reference to the property of the late Patriek Coady, or Patrick Coedy Buckley, promises, it would seem, to be almost endless. Buckley died about ten years ago, leaving a considerable amount of real and personal property in Gippsland, and, so far as was then known, there were no relatives, and no will could be found. The curator of intestate estates sought for administration, but after a prolonged contest it was granted to two creditors. Messrs Huon and Mit chell. Subsequently a person named Meagher, who had at one time been on friendly terms with Buckley, in Sydney and in Gippsland, endeavoured to establish the validity of a will said to have boon signed by Buckley in 1843, by which, after making some small legacies, Buckley left his property to Meagher. This document was contested on the ground that it was a forgery, and after a great deal of evidence had been taken, Mr. Justice Molesworth held that the alleged will was a forgery, and...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 23 February 1882

MISCELLANEOUS. A party of miners near Walhalla made L17 a man per day for six days at alluviaL Sunday is the strongest day In the week. The rest are all weak days. Noisy neighbours should be cau- tioned by the fact that at Adelaide a woman named Mullens had been com- mitted for man-slaughter, in having, by her uproarious conduct, hastened the death of a neighbour, a woman who was lying ill of consumption. The Baroness Burdett-Coutta has settled the action brought against her by resigning half her interest in the bank. She thus pays a good price for marrying the young American. It ap- pears a clause in the will, under which the Baroness inherited certain pro- perty, disinherited her if she married an alien. This clause, it is said, was inserted to prevent her marrying an Italian tenor singer, on whom, years ago she was "Sweet." The greatest excitement has pre- vailed for days past (writes of the Mur- rurundi correspondent the "Mait- land Mercury") when it became known that a daughter...
