THE REMAINS OF THE LATE MR. JOHN BARNES were removed on Saturday last, from the cemetery at the back of St. Clement's Church, Yass, for the purpose of transferring them to the family vault at Cootamundra. Many persons will remember that Mr. Barnes was shot dead twenty-four years ago at Wallendbeen by bushrangers, who, before murdering the unfortunate gentleman compelled him to sign a cheque for £500. Yass was then the nearest public burial place, and the remains were brought seventy miles for interment. Mr. S. Dickson, monumental mason of Cootamundra, conducted the removal of the remains, which was carefully accomplished on Saturday last.-Yass Tribune.
