174529 MacPherson (McPherson) Major Ewen - 5 February 1844 Wollongong SMH
WOLLONGONG, JANUARY 30.-This evening, Major Macpherson, of the 99th, left our shores, deeply, as well as universally regretted. Such a stirring, exciting scene has not occurred here for many a day. Wollongong seemed quite in commotion, every one from the highest to the lowest having turned out to witness and do honour to the departure. Major Macpherson has now been amongst us for some considerable time, and during that period, whether considered in his public or private capacity, has gained the esteem and affection of every one in the district. His destination is Norfolk Island ; his very amiable lady, whose departure also is most sincerely and universally regretted), and family accompany him. From the very short notice of his departure, it was impossible to get up any public demonstration on the occasion, as was earnestly wished; suffice to say, that the public feeling of affectionate regard was fully evinced by the people advancing, desirous of carrying the Major shoulder high to the boat,--which honour, however, he modestly declined- probably bearing in mind, too, what occurred on a former occasion of a similar nature, in another part of the world, when, his bearers, losing their footing, caused likely by the no small bulk they had to support, both he and they, to the no small amusement of the beholders, got well ducked in the watery element. The embarkation was followed by the loud and deafening cheers of the assembled crowd on the quay, which continued at intervals till the steamer, which lay in the offing, moved off, and as long as she was within hail.

MACPHERSON TESTIMONIAL.-.The committee and a number of the subscribers met, on Wednesday last, the 6th instant, at twelve oclock, at the Military Barracks, for the purpose of presenting to Colonel Macpherson an address and testimonial, expressive of the feelings entertained toward him on the occasion of his departure from Newcastle. On the arrival of the subscribers at the residence of J. E. Stacy, Esq., where, since the breaking up his own establishment consequent on hie departure, the Colonel has been staying, they were met by Dr. Stacy, who read the address to Colonel Macpherson, and presented him with the testimonial. The address was warmly and with much taste responded to by the gallant Colonel, who during the delivery of his reply evidently struggled hard to repress his rising emotions. The ceremony being over, the subscribers were invited by Dr. Stacy into an adjoining room, where refreshments had been prepared, und the company spent a short period in the intercharge of social and appropriate sentiments. The chair was occupied by the worthy host, who, as the opening toast, gave the Queen, which was followed by that of our Allies, the French, and others. In responding to his health, which was enthusiastically given, Colonel Macpherson briefly referred to the ties of regard which would ever bind him to the inhabitants of Newcastle. In return for his own health, Dr. Stacy expressed the pleasure the occasion had afforded I him in aiding in any way to give effect to the expression of the universal good-will towards Colonel Macpherson, and in the opportunity it had given him of meeting the gentlemen present. After a few other appropriate toasts, the company separated. The presentation consisted of a silver salver, coffee-pot, and service, which cost 116. DEPARTURE OF COLONEL MACPHERSON - Yesterday Colonel Macpherson took his final departure from Newcastle, in the Hunter steamer, for Sydney.
