SHEEP STEALING. Thomas Maytum, aged 20, Henry Vandepeer, aged 19, and John Maytum aged 26, were indicted for killing and stealing a sheep, the property of Mr. David Harris, at Herae, on the 12th of April last. The detection of the prisoners was rather curious:- When they killed the sheep, they left all those parts, the skin &c, by which, in all probability, they considered it could be brought to proof against them. On searching their houses, a day or two after the sheep was killed, a quantity of meat was found in their possession, for which they could not account. They, however, stoutly denied that they stole it; and, as it is rather difficult to swear to meat, the constable was at fault, until, on examining the skin, part of the spine bone was found attached to it, and, on comparing the part found with the bone attached to some of the meat in the prisoners possession, it corresponded exactly. The prisoners were then taken into custody, and subsequently acknowledged their offence. The witness for the prosecution underwent a severe cross-examination by Mr. J. Dowling, but nothing material was elicited. Verdict - Guilty; and sentence of transportation for seven years immediately passed on them.

BOORAL. ...Death has been amongst us, and taken away Thomas Maytom, one of the oldest hands in the district. It being something over sidxy years since he landed in Port Stephens.; he was a very persevering man, and worked hard to make a home for his children before he left them of which he succeeded in doing, as he left them all with families and a good home. He was known and respected all through the district, and, I think every one of his neighbours, both young and old left their work to follow the poor old fellow to his last resting place. His remains were interred in the Church of England cemetery Stroud, on Wednesday May 11th. He lived to see his eighty-seventh year which is an age that our cornstalks very seldom reach.
