HORRIBLE MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 8 March 1858

HORRIBLE MURDER. Yesterday morning shortly after 5 o'clock, a man was found lying dead in a pool of blood in Victoria-street. On examination it proved to be the body of William Souch, a cabman, well known in the City. The deceased was at once removed to H. M. General Hospital, where it was discovered that he had received a wound from a knife in the left side, just bolow the collar bone, and run-   ning in a slanting direction towards the region of the heart. Souch was in his shirt sleeves, and his shirt and waistcoat were profusely stained with blood. He had also a slight wound   on his right arm. From the nature of the wound in the side, it is supposed that some of the large vessels from the heart were wounded, and that extensive internal hœmorrhage took place, and death followed almost immediately on the infliction of the wound. Information was given to the police, and their investigation resulted in the apprehension of a woman named Elizabeth Pocock, who...

OUR INDIAN EMPIRE. (From Blackwood.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 9 March 1858

Oüß INDIAN EMPIRE. ("From Blackwood.) An Indian debate no longer, as ia the J days of Burke,acts like the dinner-bell ou I the House of Commons ; but it must be | confessed that,- even among our legisla- tors, and still more among tlte general public, the actual vastn^ss, importance, and peculiarities of our Indian Empire are yet but imperfectly understood. We regard it, too, much iu the light of a simple dependency of the British Crown -forgetful that its civil and military establishments exceed those of the I greatest European Power, and that in f amount of population it is equalled by no empire io the world save the monster j fabric of China. lu our ordinary atlases it figures to the eye no larger than our o.vn country, or any of the medium-sized kingdoms ot the Conti- nent ; but in actual fací-, it embraces a million and a half of square tnües, and is larger than all Europe exclusive of .Russia.
