The Week's News. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 17 March 1882

The Week's Hews. The great tunnel in the Nepean water works will be 13,650 feet in length. ^ UnSiraaay arcerooon last during' tne an serice of the occupants of the Signal office, some thieving scoundrel entered the premises and stole a number of exchange papers of recent date. A copy of the first number of the Nepean Times was amongst the papers stolen, and as it is not probable that there is another copy of that publication about Murrumburrah, this circumstance may lead to the detection of the offender, for whose discovery we hereby offer a reward of £2. The late Sir Joshua Bell's Grange pro- ' perfcy and stud (Queensland) were sold for £10,000. The purchaser was Mr. W. H. Kent; it is believed on behalf of a company. Ophthalmia in a severe form is exceedingly^ prevalent in the country districts of Victoria/ 42 schools are closed, teachers being attacked as well as children.

A start was then made, but two or' three minutes behind the advertised time, Mr. Bell, the station-mHHter kindly keeping, the train back till alll stragglers had arrived. On reaching Parranuttta various sports were engaged in, and the children enjoyed themselves; im mensely, Thr- staff ot'life and other luxuries Mver^Tully supplied by the" promoters of the tr?at.. . The return was irtade in^good time, aione of the ci ildren having been overcome by the heat, and at about sundown they all arrived s-afely in town. No accidents had happened in the meantime and all appeared well satisfied with, the day's entertainment. To the Rev, Mr. Hill too much praise is not due for taking the active part which he did throughout the day, and in arranging for the comfort of ail the visitors.

Sullivan the Murderer. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 17 March 1882

Sullivan the Murderer. THE Wellington correspondent of the Lyttleton Times says :-A curious story about Sullivan tlie murderer is" told by the captain of the Loch Ryan, ^vliich4ias^nstxome~from~qnarantiner According to him four years ago when ready to sail for England, a man dressed as a policeman took pas sage for home. When the vessel sailed he changed his clothes for those of a civilian. During his sleep he frequently raved about the mur der of Briggs, a bank manager on the West Coast. It happened that the cook of tlie Lock Eyan was a W est Coaster, and, knowing of the mur ders,, the sleep-talking of Sullivan brought his features to his recollec tion. He told his mates, and several of. them rigged up a block during the night, put the rope through the sky light, and had actually fixed a noose over the murderer's head with a view of stringing him up, when an officer appeared on the scene in time to pre vent his being lynched. Two Germans, with a team en route to Lillainere, Victori...

Serious Tramway Accidents. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 17 March 1882

Serious Tramway Accidents. THE Campbelltown-Camden tramway was only opened on Friday last, when a number of gentlemen officially connected with .the Government took part in the opening cere mony, which passed off with great eclat, the prognostications of its success and useful ness being of a most sanguine character. Yet a week has not passed away before two accidents-one of a very serious character indeed, and which would seem to show gross carelessness on the part of,some one-have taken place. There was a sale of land at Camden Park, and the tram leaving Cam den was literally crammed, the places set apart for, luggage and the platforms at the ends of,the.cars where the brakes are, being" also densely crowded. As the main line at Campbelltown is approached there is a steop incline. The; motor and cars, from fch^ir weight alone, and the steep nature of the in cline, hiad attained a great impetus, when all at once, probably from the- poiiits not being adjusted, the motor and cars wer...

Sir,-In reference to certain paragraphs appearing; in your issue of the 10th instant, and headed " South Creek Dancing Saloon," I am requested by the members of the " Kink Club " to draw your readers' attention to the following facts that will speak for them selves in connection with the high toned as-; sertions made by " Observer." 1. The club is a private one in the full acceptation of the word, and should enjoy the' same privileges as any private dwelling. , 2. As the Club is only about three weeks old, there is yet plenty of time, when the opportunity offers, of now and again holding literary entertainments. 3. As the public have never been invited VA to attend their meetings, and moreover, are (never likely to be, it is quite plain that th...

Richmond. WE had the pleasure of paying a visit to} this, rustic-looking town a few days ago, and! were delighted with its picturesque appear ance.

Blessed* with a spacious and shady park, Richmond, f in this respect, is far before Penrith.

Reminiscences of Old Pugilists. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 17 March 1882

Reminiscences of Old Pugilists; THE following tribute to Jack Randall was published when he was yet to the force : '. Randall's pugilistic and personal merits are thus summed up by a contemporary :-In a twenty-four feet ritig a better general or a more consummate tactician was never seen : judgment and decision were manifest in all his movements. His heart -is in the right place 5 his head cool and collected, to take advantage in the most prompt style of the disorder of the opponent before him; his mind looking confidently forward to nothing but victory. In short, as a pugilist, he is the Nonpariel. Randall's style seems the ne plus ultra of the art of self-defence. Out of the ropes, however, he is one of the most simple oi human beings. Yet Lavater, with all his knowledge or physiognomy, .might have looked at Lin mug, and looked at it again and again, and nob have discovered his real character from the lineaments of his face. If Randall cannot express himself in the sentimental man...

The Public School Inspector/ Mr. Murray, examined our school last Monday and Tues day, and I hear is highly satisfied with the general efficiency, conduct and appearance of the pupils, so much so, that he gave them this day (Wednesday) for a holiday, and in so doing remarked that this school was the first he had given a holiday to. It must be. highly gratifying to. Mr. Dryburst and, the other teachers for the elevated opinion Mv. Murray has for this school. As I stated in my. last correspondence, about more weddings being on the tapis my. remarks were soon confirmed, as since the last issue of your valuable paper, two wed dings have come oft. , 'The first was that of Mr. John Walker to Miss Wainwright, both of Colyton, aud the other Mr. Brown1'to 'Miss Giblett, both of St. Mary's.
