Details: Captain Deering was succeeded on Norfolk Island by Captain Day, who brought to the task the magisterial experience gathered in Maitland, where he had charge of the stockade, and that gathered from his associa-tion as a magistrate with Mr. Price when previously quartered on the island. To the character of Captain Day I cannot refrain from bearing tribute. He married early in life a lady without fortune, and had only his pay to live on, yet not only was he never in debt, but so excellent was his management of his income that he always kept up a good appearance, and both at Maitland and at Norfolk Island there was no more hospitable house than his. Should these Reminiscences fall under the eyes of any of the numerous friends he made in Australia, they will learn with satisfaction that he lived to command his regiment, and at his death left a substantial provision for his widow and children. Old Maitlanders will remember the confusion of identity between the two Days on the magisterial bench Denny Day, the police magistrate, and Captain Day, his constant associate. They were in no way connected, but were fast friends.
