It will be remembered that in June, 1864, Gar

to agitato for hisToleajig. The chief actors in the
'agitation were Gardiner's two sisters, respect
ably married and resident in Sydney, but there
were other wire pullers behind the scene. The
sisters presented a pitiful petition to the newly
arrived Governor, Sir Hercules Robinson, in
which they pointed out all the good qualities of
their brother. William.Bede D alley and
William Forster the Colonial Secretary when
an outbreak of prisoners occurred in Darling-
hurst, and which Gardiner, assisted to suppress,
were among the backers of the petition
which had also 500 citizens signatures
attached to it. /Tho .-petition . was duly:
«tQti and 'laid upon tho table. The release un
conditionally was not granted, but freedom
would be given on-condition that Gardiner
lived outside the British dominions. The
difficulty, was how to obtain a ship the
master of which would take the responsibility
of taking Gardiner from his native land. Mr.
Andrews had the Charlotte Andrews at New-
castle loading coal for Shanghai, and he ex
pressed his willingness and the willingness of
the master to give the-ex -bushranger a- passage.
On July 20, 1874, I was a passenger to New

old friend Royal was then chief officer. (Mr. Royal
looker in a tobacco bond). ' Off Pinchcut the

they were waiting for a distinguished passenger,
no less a personage than Frank Gardiner, alias
Christie, the notorious bushranger and escort
robber. He came on board at 11.30, accom-
panied by Detective Elliott. They immediately
disappeared in the fore cabin and were seen no
more that night. Gardiner remained in the
Newcastle lockup for two or three. days, until
the Charlotte Andrews was ready for sea.

similarly dressed, was taken between two police
men, carefully handcuffed, down Bolton-street

Thorpe and Denotative Elliott with Gardiner
