27 Dec 1862 DUNEDIN BOXING DAY AMUSEMENTS
The second years "Boxing Day" Games and Sport, got up by Mr S. E. R. Jones, in the open ground adjoining his Commercial Hotel, High-street, attracted a large number of persons during the day; for there was no charge for admission, and a good deal to amuse and interest any one who had no particular objection to jostling and crowding, which was at times somewhat rough and although good-tempered.
... The "greasy pole" caused as usual a good deal of merriment, eight or ten men paying their half-crown, in order to try and reach the chain that dangled at the top, and the getting of which was to secure a watch also. It was at last reached and carried off in the most easy and nonchalance style conceivable, by Daniel Alabaster. He stepped up rather than climbed, using two pieces of rope, which he slung round the pole to form a stirrup, so that his weight was constantly on one leg. He used sand at the points to which he noosed his ropes; he got only two very slight slips; and he fastened and unfastened the ropes coolly and expeditiously

24 January 1863 DUNEDIN SUPREME COURT

On the next night, he looked for the box and found that it was gone. One of the watches was number 6,122; and he identified the one produced, and numbered 62,515, as having also been in the box. A short time before the robbery, the prisoner Stewart stopped a night or two at his house

9 Feb 1864 THE WEST COAST EXPLORATION

On the 12th June, 1863, and during the month of June he explored the interior as far as the water shed of the Snowy Mountains, discovering the lake named after himself (photo below). The report of this exploration was delivered at the Survey Office on the 19th August, 1863, and a sketch of the lakes was drawn on the office maps at the same time. Mr Hector entered from the sea that lake named Lame McKerrow by Caples, and Kakapo by himself on the 17th August, 1863, and from thence he explored the country as far as the Wakatipu Lake. The report of this exploration is dated 19th October, 1863, and the sketch map accompanying the same is dated the 10th of the same month.

Defendant now said that the goods referred to came from town about two hours before the constable arrived. They were for two miners who lived with him. The Magistrate said the defendant had escaped by a most fortunate circumstance for him - that he was living on a reserve which was exempt from the operation of the Gold Fields Act. Case dismissed

Daniel Alabaster, the father of the boys, admitted the offence, but pleaded that they turned off the water in order to get a drink.
Inspector Hickson stated that it was not their first offence, as he had had occasion to caution them previously
His Worship said the lives of the travelling public were placed in jeopardy by the practice of the boys tampering with the plant of the railway, and inflicted a fine of L1 (1, equivalent to $143 in Dec 2011) each, or a week's imprisonment. He told the father of the boys that if he was unable to control them he would put the law in force and send them to the Naval Training School; he was not disposed to do so on the present occasion, but if they were allowed to run about without attending school, he would, if they were brought before him again, treat them as neglected children, and send them for a long term to the Training School

We understand that, in personal conversation with Mr Ballance, Mr Alabaster related the story of his previous explorations in the country in question, and referred to Sir James Hector as a gentleman who would testify to his veracity; whereupon the Minister assured his interviewer that he might consider the matter as good as settled.

DONALD Duff aged 76 (but birth date varies from 1853-1856)
- Donald was born 21 Jan 1856
- son of John Duff (1827-1872) from Perthshire, Scotland & Emily Cameron (1832-1907), possibly from Banavie Scotland
- his father John Duff had arrived in New Zealand on the "Larkins" in 1849 aged 22, with HIS father Donald (1790-1865) aged 59, a widower and his sister Margaret (1823-1884) aged 25. John settled in Princes St., Caversham. He married Emily CAMERON on 30 Dec 1853 and Mary (1855) & Donald (1856) were born. They moved to Signal Hill, North East Valley where Janet Roy Isdale (1857) & Jean (1858) were born. 2 more were born (?) & Christina (1864 above)
... on Boxing Day 1872 John hanged himself but wasn't found for 3 months. He was aged 45. His wife Emily died in Victoria, Australia in 1907
... from THE BRUCE HERALD - On Saturday afternoon last (22 March 1873), while several of the Chinamen employed on the draining works upon Mr Telford's property were in search of firewood in the bush just across the bridge over the Puerua, in close proximity to Port Molyneaux, they were surprised to observe the body of a man hanging in a dense portion of the bush. They at once came to the Alexandra Hotel, and reported the discovery, when Captain Paterson, of the Tuapeka, and the Bruce Herald reporter, led by the Chinamen, at once made for the locality. The Chinamen spoke bad English, and were indistinctly understood, consequently the Europeans were led to believe that a man was dying in a creek, and thought there might be some chance of saving life, but on reaching the spot, a ghastly spectable presented itself. On the branch of a tree, about seven feet from the ground, hung the remains of a man. The suicide had spun a piece of flax into the form of a rope, abot two feet long, and of no great thickness, with which he had done the deed. His feet were just touching the ground. His body was much decomposed, no flesh being visible, and the clothes deceased had worn were loosely covering a mere skelton. An inquest was held on Monday. The resulting verdict was:- "The said John Duff committed suicide by hanging himself to a tree in the Puerua Bush, on or about the 36th December last, 1872, and the said John Duff was at the time suffering from temporary insanity". The deceased was a bootmaker named John Duff, and formerly lived in the North-East Valley, Dunedin, where he possesses, or at one time did possess, considerable property. Of late years his habits have been very intemperate, and he has consequently been eparated from his wife and family, who are said to be resident in Dunedin. Duff arrived at Port Molyneaux a few months ago, but has been missing since Christmas last.
- Like his father, Donald was a Bootmaker
- he married Mary Ann McTAMNEY in 1881 in Melbourne. Mary Ann was born in Ireland
