Sandy, James (?–1850)

On Tuesday morning, the 20th August, Sergeant James Sandy, late of the Mounted Police. The name of this good old soldier will be familiar to many of our readers. In the earlier days of the colony he encountered, single handed, the notorious bushranger Donohoe, and his pal Phillips, when he wounded the former and killed the latter. His services to the colony for many years were of a most meritorious character.
