On Sunday, two men drowned, and a third narrowly escaped drowning at the Ferry, on the Clutha River, on the Southern Road. Official report of the Mounted Constable McCluskey. On the evening of the 6th at the Molyneux Ferry about 4.30 p.m. one of the deceased men came to the ferry leading a horse, and wanted to cross in the punt. He was informed by the ferryman that it was not safe to cross in the punt and the current was stronger than usual and it would be better to go by boat and let the horse swim after her. Accordingly the two deceased men - a traveller, whose name is not known, the ferryman, named Malcolm Smith, - the third James McDougal, got into the boat and arrived safely at the opposite side of the river. As the horse got footing he was let go, but swam back again. The boat was shoved off to try and intercept him, and came broad side against the wire cable and upset. The third man saved himself by coming hand over hand across the cable until he got out of the current, and then swam ashore.

George Wilson also a native from France disposed that on Wednesday he, two other men, and the deceased were on their way to the diggings by the West Taieri Road. They camped that night on the face of Manugatua and after pitching the tent, witness and deceased went down the side of the Hill and gathered some branches of the Tutu and brought them up to the tent where they all tasted them. When the witness had eaten sufficient he retuned to the tent leaving the deceased still eating the fruit. He remained about five minutes after the witness, and shortly afterwards he complained of a swimming in his head. He then lay down and in a few minutes afterwards fell into a fit. The witness himself was taken ill and vomited a great deal. The doctor, Dr. James Shirley, came the next morning and the deceased was dead. Daniel Soaarez, another of the mates, corroborated the statements and had known the Frenchman for about eight years and had been with him both in California and Australia. No one had ever told him that Tutu was poisonous, or none of them would have eaten it. He had not seen any posters warning parties. The deceased did not vomit at all. The deceased eyeballs were dilated as if from the effects of narcotic irritant poison. After the hearing the following verdict was returned "That the deceased died from the effects of eating the tutu plant." the jury also requested the Coroner to present a petition to the government praying them to take such necessary steps as would warn strangers coming into the colony of the poisonous nature of the tutu plant, the berries of which already caused serious illness to nine persons in the West Taieri district within the last nine weeks, one of which has proved fatal.

1854, 1855, 1856, and 1857, the population was exactly doubled
1858 6,944
1859 8,899
1860 12,691
That is to say, that in twelve years, it increased by 12,000.
In 1861 came the gold discoveries and the population 27,242 souls by the census, to which number we must add about 3,000 unenumerated, making a total of 30,000. So, prior to the rush caused by the gold discoveries, the population of Otago, although constantly and steadily increasing, remained always small and this population was scattered over 23,000 square miles.
    In 1861 the Province had 4790 horses, 34,545 head of horned cattle and 619,892 sheep. There was also 42,254 acres fenced in, of which 19,255 acres were under crop, so it is evident that the "old identity" must have attended to their own business pretty steadily.

At Saddle Hill, not far from the Burgiddie Hotel two women were killed on the spot. A light covered wagon known as Hardy's Express, which for some time been plying between Dunedin and the gold fields, was on the road out of town, and about 7 o'clock in the evening, in passing along a part of the road where it is cut in the steep side of the hill, the conveyance went over the bank and precipitated into the gully below, instantly killing two females who were travelling by it as passengers. (In descending a rather steep slope on the hillside, the off horse shied, and the driver, Cochran McDowell, noticing the danger , applied the brake, and the horses became unmanageable, and he only had time to throw himself off before the conveyance toped over and with the horses rolled to the bottom) The driver called for assistance and was joined by farmer in the neighbour. The two women were lying dead or dying in the fern, the top was off the waggon, and the vehicle itself seemed to have actually passed itself over the bodies of the women. One Mrs Mary McKenzie, the wife of the police constable, George McKenzie, had been sitting on the box. She was twenty eight years of age and believed she arrived in this province by the Gothenburg on the 28th July last. The other Mrs Mary Welsh was on her way to join her husband, John Welsh,  at the Woolshed. She was twenty-four years of age. A boy was the only other passenger. He and the horses escaped uninjured. Mr Edward Musgrove, R.M., of Tokomairiro who happened to be passing by brought the news to town and Dr Thomas Morland Hocken and Dr George Wilson and two troopers at once proceeded to the spot.

He stopped at the Edinburgh Castle, Caversham, and had a glass of sherry. He stopped at the Digger's Rest and had some rum and milk. He started again and intended to stop at Spring bank Inn, there being no accommodation for females between that and the Digger's Rest.

Fatal Boat Accident on Lake Wakatip. 
Mr William Rogers of Glenquoich Station, drowned on Saturday the 9th inst.,, caused by the upsetting of a boat during a squall on Lake Wakatip. Mr Rogers (a native of Cumberland, had been out two to three years) (who occupied with his brother a station in the Wakatip district) had been on a visit to Mr W.G. Rees, at the Shotover run, Wakatip, and was to have returned to the foot of the lake in Mr Rees large boat, which was loaded with timber from the north end for him. The boat being delayed by contrary winds and Mr Rogers anxious to get back to his own place, Mr Rees lent him another boat, with a Maori in his (Mr Rees) employ, to take him down. A gentleman named Mitchell - who also been stopping at Mr Rees accompanied Mr Rogers. Had 26 miles to go to the foot of the lake. An hour after the wind freshen up. Maori Jack asked Mr Mitchell to take the sprit out. A squall struck the boat and heeled over.  Jack did his best in keeping Mitchell and Rogers holding on to the boat. Jack finally righted the boat. Mr Rogers was had disappeared.  Mr Mitchell almost insensible. They landed and passed the night under the half-deck forward. The next day (Sunday) Jack started alone on foot to Mr Von Tunzleman's station (distant thirty miles) and reached there about 9 p.m. That gentleman and his brother started directly and pulled across to Mr Rees's - a distant of sixteen miles - and arousing him about 2 a.m. on Monday. Mr Rees turned out, and with the boatmen (who had arrived with the large boat on Saturday night) the party set off down the lake; and a beautiful moonlight night enabled them to pick up Mr Mitchell who was doing well. Mr Rees wrote "I cannot speak too highly of Jack's gallant conduct..." 

The Southland Times 26 April 2006
A Royal Humane Society silver medal presented to Jack Tewa in 1863, inscribed "Maori Jack" as he was affectionately known, was presented to Lakes District Museum director David Clarke in Arrowtown yesterday by Christchurch woman Annette Reinheimer. One of the oldest Royal Humane Society medals still circulating, it was awarded to Mr Tewa for his daring rescue of a drowning man from Lake Wakatipu after a sailboat capsized in rough waters in August 1862. Mr Tewa struggled in vain to save a third passenger on the boat, who drowned. The intensely cold waters during the 1862 rescue had left the overturned boat's other two passengers "almost powerless".  Mr Tewa repeatedly dived under the upturned hull to rescue the drowning men as their hands numbed and they slipped under the water. Miraculously Mr Tewa was able to right the boat and haul one of his companions aboard. The other drowned before they reached the Cecil Peak shore.

"Maori Jack", a musterer for Wakatipu founding pioneer William Rees, was also the first person to discover gold in the Arrow River, sparking the 1860s gold rush and was a "founding father of Arrowtown." Mr Rees nominated "Maori Jack" for the society award. Ms Reinheimer, no relation of Mr Tewa, was given the medal by her uncle, Fred Reinheimer, a descendant of West Coast goldminers, 11 years ago.  Her great-grandmother and husband had mined gold in Stafford, north of Hokitika. Documents report possible sightings of "Maori Jack" on the mine fields of the West Coast in 1867, but he then vanished. Jacks Point golf resort development, opposite the position where the boat capsized, is named after "Maori Jack".

Miller's Flat

Photos taken August 2003 from the Horseshoe Bend suspension bridge shows the banks of the fast flowing Clutha, the largest but not the longest river in New Zealand, lined with willow trees. The rough countryside is covered with gorse, tussock and stones. Horseshoe Bend was a gold mining community. There is nothing there today except the bridge.  The Molyneux River was named by Captain Cook but the Otago Association renamed the river the Clutha after the Gaelic name for the Clyde.

Large image.

At Miller's Flat, Central Otago, the road travels alongside the Clutha River and the main tar seal road leads towards Beaumont but you can also get there another way if you have a truck or SUV via the Millers Flat - Beaumont 'Millennium Track' (old Roxburgh Branch railway line) that takes you near the Horseshoe Bend suspension bridge, Craig Flat and the Lonely Graves. The road comes out at Beaumont where you re-cross the Clutha (another old bridge) and get back on SH 8 and head towards the old gold mining town of Lawrence (Gabriel's Gully nearby) and on to Dunedin. Turn across the old bridge at Miller's Flat and head south (right) down the road on the opposite side of the river. There is a short walkway to an old swing bridge (70.2m span suspension bridge, 9.3m high timber towers. Designed by John Edie (Jnr.), Tuapeka County Engineer. The Horseshoe Bend Bridge walkway is 8 km south of Miller's Flat. The bridge was built in 1913 from railway irons to get sheep and school pupils across the Clutha. The bridge was restored and reopened in 2003 as a joint project between the Department of Conservation and the walkways committee. The bridge is near the Clutha Gold cycle trail or it can be accessed by a 10-minute walk from the Beaumont Millennium Track car park. The bridge is managed by the Central Otago District Council.

If you carry on south on the shingle road you will see the "Lonely Graves" over looking the Clutha. Two large white marble headstones side by side surrounded by a fence. During the winter of 1865, William Rigney, a gold miner,  found the body of a man on the side of the Clutha River with a shivering dog sitting beside the body.  He buried the man there and on a wooden headstone he burned "Somebody's Darling Lies Buried Here".  A marble headstone was erected in 1903 by the residents of the district with the assistance of a public subscription.
"Somebody's Darling
Lies Buried Here.
 1865 erected 1903." 
 Rigney died in 1912 and he was buried there and his identical headstone stone reads
Here Lies the Body of William Rigney The Man Who Buried "Somebody's Darling."

                The Lonely Graves beside a gorse covered hill side.        The Lonely Graves along a gravel road, Millers Flat. Foothils toped with snow.

The four photos of the headstones were taken by Terena Currey on a wet cold day (7 to 8 C), 21 June, 2006 with snow on the foothills.
The yellow blooming brush is gorse.

Poems and Songs, Descriptive and Satirical, by John Barr.  Otago, New Zealand. Edinburgh: John Greig and Sons. 

Review: Not to every new province is it given to posses a poet of its own; yet to the poetic mind a new country, fresh from the hands of the Creator, presents innumerable charms, compared with which the beauties of settled and cultivated lands must appear tame and formal. The trackless forest that has never rung with the sound of the woodman's axe; the hills clothed to their summits with rank and tangled vegetation, or rearing bare heads from out a green sea of foliage the silent lakes, lying calm amid the hills; the lightly rivers, rolling their waters to the sea in steady, resistless flow; the deep, mysterious ravines; the rushing torrents all: speak a language which Poet - child of Nature-recognises as his mother tongue. The early settlers of a new country are not as a rule much given to woo the Muses. The hard practical realities of life engage all their thoughts, the labours, the dangers, and the anxieties of their position engross their energies, and they have neither time nor inclination to cultivate the flowers of poetry. But there are exceptions to every rule, and Otago is fortunate among new settlements in possessing a poet whom she can claims her own.

Mr John Barr, a native of Paisley, arrived in the year 1852, and has made the Province his home, and that of his family. He as during the years since that date, been, occupied with the clearance of his land, and with the thousand and one duties that devolve upon the man who would establish himself in a new country, but he has yet found time for literary pursuits; according to his own statement, poetry has formed his principal relation from bodily toil. The result of those pleasant labors has been a little volume of poems and songs which have now before us. He has adhered to the Scotch dialect.
