YASS TRIBUNE COURIER 17th October 1929

 

IN YEARS GONE BY

 

Mr McNally Looks Back

 

Blind and Bed-ridden but happy

 

In a little room in North Yass lies a little old man with a flowing white beard. Although blind for many years and practically bed ridden, he is happy. He has no regrets, for he is one of that hardy generation of Australian pioneers who were made to overcome misfortune.

 

Mr P McNally who lives with his daughter Mrs Pye in North Yass is in his 85th year. He has been blind for 8 years and only walks about occasionally. But this old man who has seen a lot in his day, takes his handicaps philosophically. One of the joys of his old age is to look back over the four score years and talk of the days gone by.

 

Born in Ireland, Mr McNally came out to this country when 5 years of age with his father and mother, 2 sisters and a brother. They came out on the good ship Scotia and Mrs Newman, mother of Mr Gus Newman was born on board the ship coming across. Mr McNallys father worked for the late Mr Henry OBrien at Douro, and Mr McNally himself has been in and about Yass for the last 80 years.

 

Strange to say Mr McNallys father also lost his sight in his old age and Mr McNally had to lead him about. However what is still stranger, the old man underwent an operation and had his sight restored.

 

Mother nearly drowned

 

Mr McNally cannot recall dates but he has a vivid recollection of the events of his life. During his long life he has tried his hand at many trades but principally carrying and fencing. After leaving Douro , the McNally family occupied a small house in Yass situated at the rear of St Augustine's church. Mr McNally married Mary McGann in Yass and she died some 12 years ago. He has a family of 12 children, most of whom are settled in the district. At the time of the Gundagai flood, his mother was nearly drowned but she clung to a log and was subsequently rescued. The water was up to the table in the house. The first work his mother ever did in Yass was to scrub out the Royal Hotel. Prior to that in common with women of her generation, she used to reap in the fields.

 

Mr McNally remembers the little old school situated on the bank of the river where Mr Burden, builder and contractor, now lives. Mass was held in the school on Sundays. Before the flood, Mr McNally remembers the double wooden bridge with  nine arches which then spanned the river. At one end of it he says there was a fine spring which had been covered up. When the wooden bridge spanned the river there were no such things as iron buckets and roofs- it was all wooden buckets and slab roofs. Buddy McGuire, another old identity of the town is a friend of Mr McNallys and the latter recalls an incident when Jim Smith, then a butcher ran out of cattle and the 3 of them tied up a steer which broke loose and pinning Smith to the ground gave him a rough handling.

 

Bullock roasted

 

 According to Mr McNally there was great celebration in Yass at the opening of the old wooden bridge which spanned the Yass River before the Gundagai flood. All and sundry gathered on the river bank where a bullock was roasted and a royal banquet ensued. However, there was a sad aftermath. A man called Simpson who worked in Ritchies store was celebrating by rolling a lighted barrel down into the river when he slipped and was killed. It is said that there is a rock in Victoria Park now with a white mark on it in memory of Simpson. Growing behind the Oddfellows Hall is a large tree, which Mr McNally in his time has seen develop from a mere sapling. For 20 years he was a member of the Prince of Wales lodge and he paid the first pound towards the fund for building the hall. The ground was purchased at that time for 8 pounds a foot. He remembers the opening of the hall which was an auspicious occasion. One of the much talked of historical events of his time was the Conroy murder and Mr McNally believes that he and Jimmy Fallon saw Lynch, the  murderer, with the 5 bodies in a cart near razorback.

 

One House in North Yass

 

Mr McNally recalls to mind the time when there was only one house in North Yass. He also remembers the building of the corner store now occupied Woodhill Simon and Co., also the Federal House where Mr Gorman now lives and which he says was erected by John Collins, a carrier. The old 2 storey place near Yass bridge which has aroused many peoples curiosity by reason of its oldfashioned architecture was built in McNallys time by a man called Appleton, who was a baker. He also remembers Paddy Moore who was a water carter and Ritchie who conducted a store.

 

Mr McNally remembers a fire at Bowning when 3 grey horses housed in a stable were burnt. The stable was built by John and Jim Loomes. The old gentleman can relate many stories of his bullock team travelling days with Jimmy Collison,  Hildred and Hollingsworth and others. He relates an amusing story of how Collison lost a dray off a punt crossing the river on the way back from the Lachlan. At one time he says the Telegraph Office was where Dr English now has his surgery. His father was an artist on the fiddle and on one occasion played for Roger Corcorans wedding at Boorowa and earned 7 pounds, while the hat was taken round he got another 7 pounds making 14 pounds for his nights playing. Stock values have changed a pound or two since Mr McNallys day, when he says a good heifer could be bought for a pound, and 2 years old steers for a similar amount. He recalls to mind when his father sold a good sort of bullock from the local pound for nine pence.

 

A man named Watson, a miller, bought wheat for one and six and bushell and sunk it in a pit behind Mr Alex Shaws house which Mr McNally helped to sink, and the following year Watson sold the same wheat for 1 pound a bushell.

 

Mr McNally still takes an interest in current events and is anxious to know how Mr John Cusack is getting on in the elections.

 

Knew Mr Cusacks father

 

Do you know Mr Cusack? asked the interviewer. Know him, said the old man, Yes, I knew him when he was a kid, I knew his father.

 

There are 4 hotels in Yass now but Mr McNally remembers the time when there were at least 7 or 8, and in his time he recalls the sights of 20 local hotels, most of which for years have been demolished. He remembers Redmans Hotel and the hotel of Shields Hill, also where Mr Field lives and Larkhams and Hannams and Mills, all relics of the days long since gone. The Globe and Sandy Reids Hotel, where Dr Englishs house now is, and the White Swan, have vanished into oblivion, with many others, all of which Mr McNally has clear recollections. Those were days of hard drinking and where there was little if any restrictions on the number of licenses in a town.

 

To adequately cover reminiscences of this white haired old man of North Yass would fill many papers, for when he once starts to talk of past history, one thing leads to another.

 

Looking at Peter McNally in his bed and knowing that he cannot see, one is apt to make one feel sorry for him. But he needs no sympathy, this old man, who will be 85 three days before next Christmas. He has a fuller life to look back on than most people, and few of us will live to his age. Mr McNally is still able to move about his daughters home and one of his diversions is playing a violin. Like father like son.

 

Father Played Violin

 

It is said that of Mr McNallys father that in his hey-day he was a master bush musician and one of the few men in those days who could induce a tune from a fiddle. Needless to say his services were at a premium at all the bush dances about North Yass. The story goes that after playing for hours at a dance, he would lapse into sleep but still keep on, until finally the music would start to fade. A tap on the shoulder by a passing dancer, however, would stir the player to renewed vigour.
