51 ( article corrected & transcribed this afternoon, though I don't understand any of it really. George died 8 years after the newspaper article... in Britain )
Herald Melbourne Monday 11th July 1870 A Large Reward.- The Ballarat Star of to-day contains an advertising announcement of a reward of £10,000 for the discovery of the agent who inserted certain advertisements in the newspapers some years back respecting one George Huxton Muir, of Kirkwall, Orkney. We are informed that the person offering this large reward claims to be the veritable George Huxton Muir referred to in those old advertisements, and that he further claims to be heir to large estates both in Italy and Scotland, and also to very large accumulations of money, and what is more wonderful still, to a dukedom in Italy and a baronetcy in Great Britain. The claim is made through his mother, whose maiden name was Huxton. The matter seems to be enveloped in some little obscurity, in consequence, as Muir asserts, of his long residence (about twenty-five years) in the colonies, having left Kirkwall when he was sixteen years of age, and from his whereabouts being unknown to his friends at home. It seems, however, that Muir was
long resident and well known in the Smythesdale district, carrying on business as a storekeeper there, and was much respected as a shrewd and honorable man. In 1863-4 he went to Queensland, and whilst there heard from different quarters that he had been advertised for in the Melbourne papers. It seems that he was so advertised for by the testimony of several of his acquaintances who saw the advertisements.

The Late Mrs Campbell. - We regret to record the death of an old and much-respected resident of Laura in the person of Mrs. Campbell. The deceased lady (who was in her 81st year, and had been in indifferent health for sometime past) died on Dec. 17th at her residence, North Laura. -The late Mrs. Campbell was a native of Kirkwall, in tbe Orkney Islands, in the North of Scotland, and with her late husband left for South Australia as passengers in the ship Fairfield towards the end of 1838, which arrived at Port Adelaide on May I, 1839, the voyage taking six months. They settled, in what was than known as the Old Port, afterwards residing at Alberton for a time. The late Mr. Campbell entered into farming pursuits at Woodville,and after residing there for a number of years removed, to Roseworthy, where he was still engaged as a farmer, in August, 1863 /1868, Mr. Campbell died, and in October, 1872, Mrs. Campbell removed with her family to Laura, carrying on farming for a time in the Hundred of Booyoolie, and then came to reside in the town, Mrs. Campbell was much beloved by many friends as well as by her immediate relatives,and was held in very high esteem' by the townspeople generally. She was a member of the Presbyterian Church,but in the absence of a church of that denomination, had worshipped at the Baptist Church with the other members of tbe family. The deceased lady leaves eight daughters, one daughter (Mrs Lawson) having predeceased her : - Mesdames R. Slater(Port Pirie), Foulis (Queensland),French (Willochra). Speers (PortPirrie), H.
