Notes

  • Editor's note: THE following lines were written some months ago by one of that class of prisoners denominated, in Governor Darling's time, 'specials;' who were usually consigned to Wellington Valley to rusticate. The Author spent three years and a half at this sequestered spot; the last eight months in perfect solitude - three people only being left on the settlement. To those who may be acquainted with the locality of Wellington, the desolate state of the vale is striking, when compared with its former animated appearance.
