The Coolah Bank Robbery. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 10 March 1877
Thc Coolah Buk Bobbery. OA* Friday evening, the ICth instant, the newly-established biuneh of the Commercial Bank of Sydney at Coolah was robbed by three armed men with their faces masked. The robbery (says the ' Mudgee Independent') was evidently carefully planned, as the methodical manner in which the details were were carried out showed that the leader was not an inexperienced hand. Having obtained admission in the bank under a business pretence, they forced the manager (Mr. Bushby) into a room, and, in the orthodox manner, each presented a revolver at his head and demanded the key of the safe. Mr. Bushby denied having it, but a click of the Colts forced him to tell where it was planted. Having been . obtained he was carefully guarded, and sternly ordered to be silent, and two of the threo men then proceeded to .' gut " the safe, out of which they obtained £200 in gold, over £700 in notes; and about £70 in silver, it is feared their numbers were unknown. They also took a revolver...

She claimed (and she claim was umyérsally' allowed by her friends and acquaintances) to have been born in Cor sica, on' the loth of August, 1769,' a cir cumstance ".' which induced her to speak affectionately of Napoleon I. as her " twin brother." i Tho truth is, however, a great deal of doubt exists na to the day oh which the future Emperor first entered the world he was destined to. trouble.

Not returning home on Sunday evening, her parents became anxious, and having sent to her friend's she had visited, and found that she had left there on Sunday evening, they became seized with the fear of her safety, and all the night though a diligent search was made, but without avail.
