"AN OLD COLONIST GONE.-The late Mr. Henry Angel who died at Lake Albert, near Wagga, at his residence on the 7th instant, at the age of 91 year, was a colonist for over 60 years, having arrived in the colony in 1819. He first settled in Kiama as a farmer. In 1824 he went with Humo and Hovell's party on the expedition overland to Hobson's Bay. He was one of the first men who crossed the River Murray and was always foremost in any difficult situations or hardships on the journey. Mr. Hume, in his reports of the expedition, frequently mentions the name ot Henry Angel, and speaks highly of his courage and determination. He appears always to have been a man on whom great reliance was placed by the explorers iu any difficulty or hardships.

Mr. Angel afterwards followed the occupation of a farmer and became a squatter on the Murrumbidgee. He eventually settled near Wagga, and became possessed of a considerable landed estate. He was noted in the district for his strict integrity. ln 1832 he married Mary Brooker. There were l6 children of the marriage, eight of whom and the widow and 70 grandchildren survive their father.

A 'Broken-hearted Husband.

A maintenance case presenting some remarkable features came before the police magistrate at Hobart. A stylishly dressed young lady, named Johnston, proceeded against Arthur Hercules Angel for having failed to comply with a maintenance order for the payment of 12/ a week for the support of his illegitimate child.

The case for the plaintiff was that she was a married woman, her home being in Wagga. She was forced into marriage with a man named Johnson 13 years ago, but parted with him at the church door, and had not seen him since.

She became acquainted at Wagga with Angel, who persuaded her to go with him as his wife. They lived together, for six years in Victoria and New South Wales and two children were born.

They then went to Hobart, but she complained of ill-health, and it was arranged that she should return to Wagga, defendant paying her fare. She had only received 15/ from him since, although he had written to her signing himself as her broken-hearted husband.

When she wrote, stating that she was leaving Wagga for Hobart, defendant's wife, wrote stating that money would be remitted. That was ten days after defendant had described himself as her broken-hearted husband.

The evidence disclosed that defendant was employed at Finlay's music warehouse, and had received in wages and commission £334 , during the currency of the order. The magistrate, reserved his decision on the law points raised.

TRAVELLER'S LAPSE. EMBEZZLING FUNDS

Arthur Hercules Angel was before Judge Cohen and a Jury at the Quarter Sessions yesterday on a charge of embezzlement on three counts of about £9, which he had received on behalf of John Ambrose Rue, his employer.

The case for the prosecution was that the accused, who was a commercial traveller for Ambrose Rao, of the Victorian Associated Vineyards, had used certain moneys that he had received on behalf of the firm. When charged with having spent the sums, accused had said he would get a friend to make himself responsible if the money was not refunded.

The man who promised to do this, however, had disappeared.

A verdict of guilty on the three counts was returned, but a recommendation to mercy was made on the ground that some of the money might have been spent as business expenses.

Angel was sentenced to two years imprisonment, to come up for sentence if called upon, with one surety, himself. In £60, and two sureties each of £50.
