THREE PERSONS DROWNED. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 29 November 1861
THREE PERSONS DROWNED. We quote from the Gipps Land Guardian the following particulars of a peculiarly me- lancholy occurrence, to which we have already briefly alluded: - By some mysterious accident Mr. Charles Peterson, the Heads Pilot, has been bereft of his wife, his wif'e's sister, and his eldest boy. In what manner and from what precise cause this has occurred must be for ever left to conjecture. It appears Mr. Peterson left home (the Pilot Station at Biddie's Camp) on Saturday evening last, for the purpose of taking out from Corner Inlet the schooner Elizabeth. On Tuesday afternoon he took charge of the Elizabeth, and proceeded with her to sea, returning home to the Pilot Sta- tion about ten o'clock p.m. On nearing the shore he missed the usual welcome of his wife, and could nowhere see his little boat, which should have been hauled up dry above high water mark.. Without suspecting any ca- lamity he proceeded to the house, a distance of about 200 yards from the beach, but fin...

At the peace, Sandllands left the navy without claim to pension, went knocking about the world as sailors do, at last returned to his native place, Towkesbury, and worked on the roads until old age and Intirmity threw him on the parish. Some friends acquainted with his sad story, made the fucts known to the Nelson futnily,and they, after proper inquiry, forthwith agreed to allow hint for lifo 9s, iI. per week for extra comforts. But theo parochial authorities, with true parochial muni filncetreated the Nelson allowance as part of his weekly Income, and reduced their wretched grant to Is, per week, thus leaving this poor old man to ex slt upon 3a.

Sut,-The letter, of your corresppndont 'H., 1?.," of the Alain road, is couched in such peculiar phraseology that for the momecnt and upon further contemplation-I could not arrive at a definito conclusion as to his real desire. Ilis proplositions ought to have been addressed to the Hawthorn public rather than to ue ; for have I not devotedly sought, and persistently proclaimed how the nomencla. turo of Hawthorn may be satisfactorily est:ablished. If" lf, P." will on behalf of his brethren of the Literary Association deposit the sum of Thirty Pounds in any [Melbourne bank on account of the moderate estimate I place on my knowledge, vii., One Hundred Pounds, I shall have no objection to disclose to him or to the communittee of management, how this important corporate town came to be named; and not only that, but I will also give up my HSS,...
