October 25 On this day in Dunolly History....
1856 Daly’s Store at Long Gully was targeted by a woman, who claimed to
have walked from Dunolly, as she passed a counterfeit 10 pound note
when she purchased goods. The fraud was soon discovered and the woman
traced to Dead Dog Gully where she was eventually arrested.
DISAPPEARANCE.-Mr. Peter Sloane, who has figured several times lately
at the Dunolly Police Court, in some disputes relative to claims on his
private property, has been missing since Saturday 22nd, He left his
house as usual that morning, apparently for the purpose of attending to
his duties on the farm. Since then he has not been seen ; and although
every search has been made, no traces of him have been discovered What
makes the matter more strange is, that at the time he left, he had no
money with him.
1870 A French watchmaker, named Charpoit, has
died at Dunolly, Vic, from a fit of apoplexy occasioned by hearing of
the news of the French reverses.
