Article1890William Steward was mentioned in the anecdote for Christian Asquith in 1890;
On 20 August 1890 the Victorian Legislative Assembly started an enquiry to attempt to prove who discovered gold in Bendigo. During that enquiry his son-in-law, William Steward gave this description of his father-in-law:

The old man, when I saw him, he had on a shoemaker's apron and he was splattered with mud" "I said, What are you doing? and he said 'digging a waterhole' I said 'A fine waterhole no doubt, have you got gold?' yes he said and he showed me a match box full of gold, nice lovely gold. How many? He said 4 or 6. I said, I am going to be in it."

A strong case was made that Chris Asquith was the first person to discover gold at Bendigo and no one disputed that he lived in the hut next to the find. However, the enquiry made no decision.1

Article1837Bryan McManus, the Parish Priest, wrote to his Excellency, the Earl of Mulgrave, Lord Lieutenant General of Ireland to appeal the sentence.

The Memorial of Pat Cullen of Kilmactrany in the County of Sligo, now a convict for life in the Gaol of Sligo.

I humbly relate .......
That in the neifhbourhood of Pat lived a man, named Michael McGarry, who being contrary to his wishes to marry, put away his wife and drove the unfortunate object of his hatred, to seek support among her charitable neighbours. Pat, through compassion for her suffering, frequently gave her lodging, for the night or two which displeased her husband so much that he came to his house and forbade him to entertain her in future, and vowed vengeance against him if he did. Sometime since, pat was bringing home potatoes on a horse, which he got from a neighbour whose land lay beyond McGarry's farm. After leaving the horse at home, whom should he see by McGarry's wife and her sister taking away one of her husband's cows. McGarry having discovered them, also took the cow back and would have prosecuted the wife, were it not that every person informed him, he could not injure her. As previously remarked, he was angry with Pat for offering her asylum and therfor as he saw him at the same time in his field, he prosecuted him.

Pat, being unprepared and without counsel, got transported for life. Pat is a poor man aged 50 having a good wife and 10 children depending upon him for industry.

His Lordship Justice, when sentencing him had said he was the object of great compassion. The pity he felt of him, he trusts the same feeling will actuate Your Excellency, upon consideration of his case, to change his sentence and remain grateful to Your Excellency.
