at the Western, says the Herberton Advertiser
(Queensland), a man named Harry Martin was
missed from his tent, also at the Western, by a
neighbour whose attention was attracted to the
circumstances by noticing Martin's horses un-
heeded about the camp. No trace of the missing
man could be got ; the police went in search;
others did also, but no tidings could be gained
until on Thursday last, at a distance of not more
than 300 yards from Martin's camp, human re-
mains were discovered, a portion, it is supposed,
having begn carried away, and those discovered
mangled and torn by hawks and native dogs. Mr.
S. Denney, J.P., instituted an inquiry, and no
doubt exists, but that Martin has been horribly
murdered by the blacks. This is an outrage not
likely to be obliterated from the minds of the
miners in the district for many years, and one that
should call for condign punishment ; yet it is
more than probable that the murderers will escape
owing to the lapse of time— the 19th November ult.
— when the murder is supposed to have occurred.
We believe the injury done to Scollar and Simp-
son, who were speared, and the murder of Martin
were perpetrated by one, if not two, "civilised '
blacks. The particulars elicited at the inquiry in
stituted by Mr. S. J. Denny, J.P., touching the
catastrophe, are as follows : — The remains of a
human body found on Wednesday last, by George
Shepherd, were lying on the bank of a creek called
"Straight Shooting Gully," Rain Camp, less than
a quarter of a mile from a Chinaman's garden ; at

Gap, about one mile north, along which same
range Scollar and Simpson were speared, it is sup

To the Editor. — Sir, — A report has been
going the rounds of Brisbane that the man
Keys, who committed the murderous assault on
Morgan Rees, or Reid, is the same Keys who
son, consider that I am called upon to vindicate
the latter Keys' name and honour, which have
been without tarnish. I most emphatically
deny that Chas. Keys is one and the same
person alluded to by some mischievous people.
I hold letters which place it beyond all doubt
that Chas. Keys was killed by the blacks on
the 16th November, 1877, on the Diamantina
River, on his way to Brisbane from Mount
Leonard station. The Commissioner of Police
has papers in his hands which afford conclusive
evidence that Chas. Keys died or was killed at
the time referred to. The deceased was a resi-
dent of Brisbane for upwards of thirty years,
and there never was, or is there, anything but
what was upright and guiltless attached to
him; his name has been associated with many
creditable things in days gone by, when Bris
bane was but a village, and many people look
back now and well remember his genial
character and disposition, and would refute
such a report. I have had many hints and
sneers of late about this same thing, and did
not think that I would be obliged to go to
extremes to deny this charge through the Press.
Hoping that you will insert this for the benefit
