WATER POLICE COURT. (Before Messas. Josephson and Caraher.) [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 7 January 1870

WATER POLICE COUET. (Before Messas. Josephson and Caraher.) Several drunkards were punished. James Smith and William Stennister, for riotous behaviour in George-street, were each fined 20s, or three days' imprisonment. Jessie Webb, 14, was charged with having stolen three toilet bottles, two pin boxes,one antimacassar, two d'oyleys, and a gold ring, the property of a Mr. Joseph Clarke. It appeared that the articles in question were found by the accused in a perambulator, in the bush. She took them to her mother, who was about to adver» tise them, when Mrs. Clarke made her claim and insti tuted proceedings against Miss Webb. There was no evidence to sustain the charge, and the prisoner, whose case Mi-. K. Driver took up gratuitously, was dis charged. John Glancey, for neglecting to comply with an order of Court directing the payment of certain sums of money, was sent to gaol until such time as the money should be paid. Senior-sergeant Anderson prosecuted one Franz Borkett for knowing...

In one of the election meetings in the Braid wood district recently, as we observe from the local paper, Mr. Gr. M.

We fully sympathise with Mr. Stephen in the spi it that dictated this reply It is quite true tbat any man who has to live by t is labour, whether intellectual or physical, in this country, has to work hard, and some of us may think tbat we have more than our fair share of it, considering the numbers of those who appear to get on very well without labour at all.

On Tuesday last, another rather severe storm of hail, with a driving wind, passed over Grafton, causing great destruction amongst the vines and fruit trees. It appeared to be very local, and fortunately confined to a small area. The gardens and vineyards presented u wretched appearance after the storm, Hermitage, the vines in many parts were completely stripped, and the ground literally strewn with the fruit; some gloss in different ports of the town was also broken by the force of the driving hail, which was, followed by a rather heavy shower of rain.

THE WEATHER AND THE CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 7 January 1870

THE WEATHER AND THE CROPS. The previously high temperature of the weather was considerably modified by Tuesday's rains, which, how ever, were not so heavy as those which flooded a huge portion of the colony of Victoria, The fall was 0.33 inches in Sydney, 0.14 inches at Newcastle, 2 inches at Eiandra, and 1.14 at Eden. The thermometer regis tered about three points lower yesterday than on the drd instant. The accounts from the various districts assure us of an abundant harvest ; but from all quarters, east, north, aud south, complaints reach us of an uncommon scarcity of labour, for the crops in some localities being excessively prolific, an influx of farming hands is required to get them in ; so scarce, indeed, i« labour, that as much as V. per acre or more has to be paid. It is stated that the late sown wheat in the western districts is slightly affected by rust; but comparatively speaking, the dry weather has prevented it making much headway, and in some parts of the Southern dis...

GARROTTING IN CLEVE-LAND STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 7 January 1870

GARROTTING IN .- CLEVE- LAND STREET. About 9 o'clock on Wednesday night Mr. Alderman Murphy, while going home along Cleveland-street, was garrotted by two men. Mr. Murphy was -within about a hundred yards of his own home when he felt some person throw his arms round him, and at first thinking some one was playing a joke on him, was about request ing that he would not be handled so rudely, when to his surprise he felt a pressure in his back. Mr. Murphy then became fullv convinnpri nf the -fa-*4:*1iaf )ia-waa being garrotted by two men, one of whom held him backwards while the other attempted to thrust his hand into his trousers pockets. This course of procedure was of course objected to, and then a desperate struggle ensued, during which the worthy alderman was prevented from calling out, one of the men having had him tightly grasped by the throat while the other used his best endeavours to rifle his pockets, one of which contained between 20s. and 30s. Mr. Murphy had also a watch on...

Fatal Accident at Lisuobe.— It appears that a young woman, the wife of Francis Reece, a German, residing at Rose Hill, was hist Thui'sday washing near the bank of the river, and while in the act of dipping a can of water, the can slipped out of her hand, and in leaching for it, over-balanced herself over the wharf, and was drowned.
