THE HOUGOUMONT AND THE FENIANS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 11 April 1868
THE HOUGOUMONT AND THE FENIANS. An extraordinary story recently found its way here from Sydney. Her Majesty's ship Brisk lately left that port, and it was stated that her destination was Western Australia, to which she had gone in consequence of news having been received by the commodore from the Lords of the Admiralty, by the Panama mail, to the effect that an armed Fenian vessel had escaped from a British port, for the &nbsp; purpose of intercepting the convict ship Hougounont, and rescuing the Fenian pri- soners who were placed on board of her for transportation to Western Australia. The Brisk was stated to have sailed for Fremantle, to cruise off the coast in search of the supposed Fenian Adventurer. The report, however, was soon ascertained to be a groundless ca- nard, and the Hougoumont arrived safely at her destination on January 10th. In reference to some absurd statements respecting the voyage out, which appeared in South Austra- lian papers, Capt. Cozens, of the Ho...
THE ATTACK. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 14 April 1868
THE ATTACK. The Prince attended the Sailors' Home Picnic at Clontarf, near Sydney on the 12th of March last. After luncheon he left the tent in company with Sir William Manning. While in conversation, the treacherous Assassin stole up behind the Prince and when within a few feet of him took deliberate aim with a revolver. and fired. The shot took effect in the back of the Prince, a little to the right of the spine. He fell forward and exclaimed, " Good God my back is broken !" Sir William stooping to evade the shot lost his balance and fell-the pistol did not explode. Sir William Manning was ri sing, the ruffian took aim again, when a gentleman, Mr. Vial, seized the arms of the murderous assailant from behind and pinioned them. In doingthis the pistol ex ploded, and the shot entered the foot of Sir George Thorne who fainted. His Royal Highness was carried to the tent by a number of gentlemenattractedto the spot by the report of firearms. The dress of His Royal Highness being removed...
THE WOUNDED PRINCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 14 April 1868
THE WOUNDED PRINCE. Pale and trembling, people crowded round the tent into which the Prince had been carried, in hundreds, until theywere requested to keep back to allow free ven tilation. They fell back and formed a complete cordon round the tent some forty yards distant. His Royal Highness said, " Tell the people I am not much hurt, I shall be better presently." The Prince, who never lost consciousness, though faint from loss of blood, described the sensation he felt when the bullet struck him; he said " he felt as though he was being lifted off the ground." In the evening about 5 o'clock the Prince was placed on a litter and borne by the men of the Galatea to the deck of the Jlorpeth. His Excellency the Governor, Commodore Lambert, Captain Beresford, and Mr. Toulmin were most attentive to the suf ferer and proceeded to Sydney in the same boat. A steamer had been sent with a Message to the Galatea, at Sydney, to be prepared with a boat to convey the Prince to the shore, and when t...
SEIZURE OF THE ASSASSIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 14 April 1868
SEIZURE OF THE ASSASSIN. When Mr. Vial seized the arms of the man who had fired the shots a number of other gentlemen came up and laid hold of him, and but for them and the police, the infuriated crowd would have Lynched -him on the spot. " Lynch him !-" ' Hang him !" "String him up !" were shouted by the people, and a rush was made to get at him, and it was with the greatest difficulty that the police could prevent his being torn limb from limb while getting him down to the Steamer. The task of putting him on board was not an easy one, and by the time he was got to the wharf all the clothing was torn from the upper part of his body, his eyes and face were much bruised, blood was flowing from various wounds and his lips swollen like a Negro's, and when he was dragged on deck, he was uncon scious. A number of sailors on board had prepared a rope ready to string him up, and it was only by the in terference of Lord Newry that his life was spared. The steamer hauled off a few feet from ...

He has spent a good deal of his time on the con tinent and in America and came from Victoria to New South Wales about three months ago. He has expressed a hope that the Prince would not die, and says says he did not mean to kill, only frighten him. In reply to the Colonial Secretary, Mr. Parker, who asked him "How he come to commit such an outrage ?" he said, " Come, come, it is not fair to ask such a question as that the Prince is all right, the Prince will live, you need not fear about him-its only a side wound. I shall be hanged but the Prince will live. When he was arrested, he ex claimed " I'm a Fenian-I've done my du...
