The hall was crowded and there could not have been less than 1000 persons present. The Mayor said thatit augured well for the Liberal cause to see so many of the inhabit ants present that evening.

A WOMAN BURIED ALIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 9 February 1878

4 WOMAN BURIED ALIVE. SOME further particulars are given re garding the case of a woman being buried alive in Italy. It appears that a poor woman, near her confine ment, was suddenly taken ill, and sent for the doctor. On his arrival she had fainted," had lost her senses," and was pronoiinced' to be dead. On' being urged to save the child, at least, the answer was that an operation would be useless; and the woman was buried according to the law of the country within twenty-four hours after her decease. Several days afterwards the grave was re-opened to bury a girl, and :it was found that some displacement 'had occatred in the body of the woman. The report got wind, and an excited population demanded an instant inves tigation, the result of which was that the swathings by which the legs had been bound were discovered to have -been brokoken while her hands were raised to the mouth, as if the poor creature had desired to tear asunder the ribands by which the jaws were tiedtogether..

BY THE CAMPASPE. A TALE BY ALBERT ELWELL. And others followed: he was left alone. He.could-not bear the place; .his. spirit yearned Too much for faces that he ne'er could see: And soon, with her whose life was all his care He left once more his native town, and came Where in solitude of southern woods With nought to break upon his homestead rude He might at freedom range as once of yore By the Campaspe. Now well nigh 20 years had passed since then, And care and time together o'er his head Had struggled oft, but still his locks were dark As when he first departed from his home. Not so his brow : with many wrinkles ploughed By time's remorseless hand-his back grown bent His steps now feeble, not as eret he walked In all the pride of manhood and of strength, Supported by a helping staff, or by A youthful figure to whose loving heart It was a joy to stroll now in the sun, Now in the shade, as by his fancy led: Plucking a flow'ret that had caught his eye Resting upon the trunk of some ol...

FLOODS IN NEW SOUTH WALES. (HERALD.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 9 February 1878

FLOODS IN NEW SO UTH WALE. Tae rain throughout the colony are ex ceedingly heavy, and are general, but in Sydney and its neighborhod there has been a perfect deluge, surpassing anything ever known here before. A terrific rainfall set in last night, the water coming down in such torrents as to appear like one sheet. In an incredibly short space of time the lower-lying portions of the city were one mass of water, which was rushing along the streets in torrents that fairly defied all efforts. An immense destruction of pro perty, both public and private, ensued, for the water was in many places fully six feet deep, In the neighborhood of Haymarket street the damage was most severe. All the stores there had at least six feet of water in them, and in the street the tor rents of water rushing furiously along completely ploughed up the metal, and entirely altered the levels in a manner that would have been deemed impossible. No such complete alteration in the topography of any locality in t...
