Notwithstanding this, tho Australian trapper carries on profitably in several parts of tho country Iiis lonoly occupation ; and many will bo surprised to learn that several hundreds of men pass six months of tho win' tor season in capturing, for tho sake of their furs, tho opossum, nativo cat, and flying squirrel, donizons of tho colony.

THE ROMANCE OF THE MINORIES— An Oriental Love Tale. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Chronicle — 4 May 1861

THE ROMANCE OF THE MINORIES. - An Oriental Love Tale.   An action, "Myers v. Isaacs," was brought in the Court of Queen's Bench on Monday, before Mr Justice Byles, to recover damages for a breach of promise of mar- riage, that the defendant pleaded that he had not made the promise, that the plaintiff was not ready and willing to marry him, and that she had released him from his promise. Mr Sergeant Perry, in his opening speech, said that in cases of breach of promise of marriage it often happened that a good deal of romance and feeling were displayed, but   the present case was not at all a romantic one. The plaintiff, Miss Susan Isaacs, was of the Jewish faith, as was also the defendant. He believed that they were about equal in age and station, the defendant being a widower with five or six children, and the plaintiff be- ing about 44 or 45 years old. The defendant lived in the Minories, where he carried on the business of a clothier, and the plaintiff li...

THE WHÍSPER       Dávid Howie,' originallybelonging to North Leith; Was famous about.1830, chiefly forhta escapes by bolling; not that bo escaped always, for we had bim several timos through, our Lands, brit that- he had as yet been success- ful beyond our .wishes, and had a groat objectioh to the.

We repeatedly wore within arm's-longth of him, but his recklessness in leaps from windows, his speed, and confidence in these qualities, enabled him to baulk us oftener than any man I havo known. ..

EXECUTION OF A WIFE MURDERER [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Chronicle — 4 May 1861

EXECUTION OF A WIFE MURDERER   At ten o'clock yesterday morning the extreme penalty of the law was carried into effect in the case of the con- vict William Smith, convicted at the last Criminal Ses- sions at Beechworth for the wilful murder of his wife, Ellen Smith, at Oxley Plains, near Wangaratta, by   drowning her in a waterhole. Since his condemnation the wretched man remained in a desponding state, and was evidently under the impression that he would be ultimately reprieved, and with this hope he was some- what buoyed up. He had been visited by several mini- sters of the Wesleyan denomination, but to them he com- municated nothing whatsoever in connection with the awful crime for which he was so soon to suffer. The Rev. Mr. Studdert, the jail chaplain, was most assiduous in his attentions upon he wretched man, and adminis- tered to him that spiritual consoluation of which he stood so much in need. Notwithstanding that the convict was closely watched, w...
