Defendant was sum moned for that. on 23rd, April, 1882, he being then the keeper of H.M. Gaol at Albury, and plaintiff'being at the time a prisoner in defendant's cus tody, he (defendant) did fail to de liver to the said John James Main, while six hours after the'demand, a copy of the warrant of commitment, upon which the said John James Main was committed to the said gaol. Mr   Wilkinson, for the defence took the preliminary objection that the case was not within the jurisdiction of the court, as clause 1 of the "Habeas Corpus" Act, under which proceedings had been taken, did not provide for the re covery of'the penalty before magis trbtes, but specified tlhe Court of Queen's Bench.

SPRING BEAUTY OF CONIFEROUS TREES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 9 April 1883

SPRING BIAUTY' OF CONIFER OUS TREES. Soma one having stated in the " Gardeners'. Chronicle" that coniferous trees were monotous, Mr D T Fish comes, to their defence, and says- ' Monotony of color indeed ! It is all very well to bring this charge against Conifers in the autumn of winter when their leaves have reached maturity or have begun to enter the sore, if not yellow stage. But not our best deciduous .trees can rival the rich interest and variety of Conifers in the springtide. Take for example such a Silver Fir as P Pinsapo; its catkins glow almost with the brilliance of coral, and its grey shoots are soft and rich with verdure that must be seen, as it is beyond de scription. - Then such Spruces as the Smiths and Donglas are of the richest shades. The cones, too, of these and many other trees, such as Pinus ex celsa and others, add a new feature of interest and beauty. These added to thecatkins, the showers of golden pollen, the curious growing points of the wood, soft and appar...

HOW PRIZE-FIGHTERS DIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 9 April 1883

HOW PRIZE-FIGIITERS DIE. Ben. Hagan, the reformed pugilist, lately told a Chicago " News" reporter that "prize-fighters die prematurely of weakness and disease brought on by their injuries. In fact they die at or before the time when, if they had not beenprize-fightre, they would have been at the prime of life. Charley Gallagher died at.the age of 30 of consumption;, caused by an injury received with Davis Davis fell on himn, planting his knee on his upper left breast. Brandy bears the blame of killing Tosm Sayers, but in my opinion he died of the in juries inflicted by John C. Heenan. Heenanjumped off a train and hurt himself, and some lay the blame of pre mature death to that accident, but he died of consumption, produced, in my opinion by over. punishment in his fights with Sayers and King. John Mlorissey's death is laid on Bright's disease, but he stood beating enough to kill ten men, and I believe that is what killed him. Yankee Sullivan is said to have been killed by a Vigilan...

Thirty-threevaritieswere planted.'with various manures, on one farm, and at Cork 82 varities were planted and tested. The report mainly goes to show that 1882 was a very had season for potatoes generally .in' Ireland, and although 20 tons of good dung was used on some of the. plots, nothing over 10 tons and 11 tons per acre was produced, whilst some 'avrities grew only four. to fimve tons per acre.
