We observe from yesterday's Police Gazette that Sub inspector Pewtress has been appointed to take charge at Emerald hill (Melbourne district) whilst Sub inspector Toohey has been transferred to Mansfield (North Eastern district) This arrangement will give satisfaction, especially to those who know the abilities of Mr Pewtress for the discharge of city duties. Mr Pewtress is essentially a city officer and should never have been sent to the bush. Notwithstanding his want of bush experience, however, he has, according to all accounts performed the onerous duties which fell to his lot recently at Mansfield in a creditable manner and appears to have gained the high esteem of the residents in the bushranging district.
