OUR MAD REPORTER. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 29 September 1870
oUR MAD REPORTER. i All the world is a stage," &c, and one great actor has just made his exit in a very undignified and humiliating manner. Na; poleonnBater's " Destined Monarch of the World"-is now "monarch of all he sur veys" through the bars of a German prison. He sought the "bubble reputation even in the cannon's mouth" and surrendered like a hero, on the principle, I presume, that "disc cretion is the better part of valour?" Truly 'tis a great fall. From the almost supreme rule of an Empire to the tender care of a Prussian sentry-from the voluptuous ease of the :uilleries to the meagre entertaini ment of a German prison. How will Na poleon stsnd it ? Will his great soul mount to his eyes, and will he burst the shackles that surround him ? Or will his gigantic mind soar above his temporary troubles and forget them ? We shall see. How much was [realised for the Hospital at the amateur concert? I hope the Ethi opians will not think it impertinent of me for asking-consideri...

Kilmore Free Press PUBLISHED THURSDAY MORNING. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 29 September 1870
PUBLISHED THURSDAY MORNING. THURSDAY, SEPrIEMIBER 29, 1870. THE astonishing news brought by the list moil must have taken everyone by surprise, and the strongest and most zealous partisan of the Prussian cause coald scarcely have conceived that good fortune was to smile on them so favorably, and apparently so cone stantly, whilst those persons who are disposed to view with favor the exertions of the French are not prepared to realize the appalling fact that a nation, noted for its valiant deeds of warfare, should, in such a very short time, become paralysed. Whilst every right-thinking person, be his sflnpa thies with the Prussians or the French, must deplore the terrible carnage and loss of human blood that has ensued in consequence of the unfortunate declaration of war, and whilst the whole civilized world must look on with horror at the terrible scenes enacted, it appears strange that the various powers should be so constituted that no mediation can have yet taken place to preven...

The conclusion I arrived at, and which I published in these columns, at Ihe time, w;is that although the new country vwas not inviitng in its state of nature, it contained within itself all the elements, of improvement. Since then Mr Forreet has made a still longer journey-froii Wcst; to South Anstralia-but, of course, Sir Charles Nicholson was not aware of it at the time of the Geograp:hicl. Society's meeting. As an old colonigt of considerable experiie'ee, Sir Charleo. should have known better than Sto condemn as hopelessly barren any country upon the report of a pioneer explori...

To him there were thrown over the ship's side thirty two mail bags, and two boxes containing 10,000 sovereigns for one of the banks in the town, and then away steamed the good ship, leav. ing our unfortunate gold keeper in an un. happy predicament. After a time a trusts worthy friend approached, to whom was en' trusted the charge of the gold, while the custodian went in search of a cab, in which bags, boxea, and keeper were placed, and away they went up to town.
