THE FIGHTING IN THE SOUDAN. A recent London GAZETTE contains a dispatch from General Graham, enclosing details of acts of gallantry hy Quarter- master-sergeant. Marshall of the hattie of El Teb; by Lieutenant P. S. Marling, King's Boyal Bides, and Private Thomas Edwards, the Black Watch, at the battle of Tamai. Marshall pulled Lieutenant C. J. Walker, who was", lying on the ground wounded and surrounded by the enemy, to a place of safety. Had he been left behind he would asuredly have been killed. Lieutenant Marling is recommended for the Victoria Cross. Private Morely was shot and fell, and the order having been given to retire, he was placed in front of Lieutenant Marling on his horse. He, however, fell off immediately. Lieutenant Marling then dismounted and gave his horse up for the purpose of carrying off Morley, the enemy pressing close on them, and they succeeded in getting him clear of danger.

FEARFUL DYNAMITE EXPLOSION. TEN WOMEN KILLED. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884

FEARFUL DYNAMITE EXPLOSION. TEN WOMEN KILLED. The most lamentable explosion that has taken place in the history of Nobel's Manu- factory occurred on May 9, when ten of the women employed there were killed and two seriously injured. It appears that the lamentable occurrence took place at twenty two minutes to nine, in the No. 7 cartridge hut, and blew four girls, who were the only inmates, to atoms. Three adjoining huts caught fire, and great fears were felt that it would spread over the whole works; but plenty of water being at hand the fire was got under about a quarter of an hour from the time of its outbreak. The material in the hut did not explode, but burned slowly away. The scene, as described, was heartrending. Six or seven girls were burned to death before the eyes of their employers, who could render no assistance, and out of the fifteen girls employed in the four huts ten were killed, being either blown to atoms or burned to death, three escaping, and two receiving such in...

BEHEADED—A FEARFUL SCENE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884

BEHEADED-A FEARFUL SCENE. The murderer Campi who was recently gullotined in Paris, refused to the last to tell his real name, and marched with firm step and undaunted countenance to the gullotine. Being asked by the attendant priest to kiss him he replied, cooly, " You may kiss me if you wish." The papers say that when the knife fell the blood spouted up two or three feet. The executioner pushed the body into the prepared re- ceptacle, took up the head by the ears and threw it in, and in a few miuutes the bloody remains, shrouded by curtains, were on the road to Ivy Cemetary. A man who got on a ladder hoping to see, fell and was greviously, perhaps mortally, injured. After the execution some of the crowd tried to find stains of blood on the ground in which to dip their hankerchiefs, in accordance with an old superstition. Since his con- finement at La Hoquette, Campi lías been calmer, so much so that the strait-jacket was removed. It is the custom to allow condemned murderers certai...

A SYDNEY BARRISTER CHARGED WITH MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884

A SYDNEY BARRISTER CHARGED WITH MURDER. At Kingsbridge (Devonshire) on May 7, Mr. Hugh Shortland, barrister, was charged with the wilful murder of his wife, Laura Dimes, and Winiam Ryder with being an accessory to the fact. Mr. Shortland came into the locality a few months ago and made himself known by advocating an opposition branch of railway through the south Hams to that proposed by the people of the neigh- bourhood. He addressed several meetings on the subject. A few weeks since he ad- dressed a final meeting at Kingsbridge, at which he intimated that some friends of his had amalgamated to establish a company to run short lines through the South Hams (Modbury) district, and to purchase large tracts of land in Australia for the production of meat and cereals. He stated that it was his intention to proceed to Australia at once to make arrangements to this end. Some days later the local papers contained an account of a runaway wedding which had taken place at Kingsbridge between M...

Municipal Fools at Balranald. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884

Municipal Fools at Balranald. That is a fanny as well as a sad story-the defal- cation and suicide of Kenyon, the Balranald town clerk. It is said he was recently discharged from Adelaide gaol, and that he victimised, to the extent of £750, a man in that city who had befriended him on his release. In Hamilton (Vic.) be passed as Charlie Cane, and elsewhere as Frank Storey. Straying into N.S.W., he fell in with very soft people in Balranald-a body of gentlemen known as the municipal council. As town clerk, Mr. Charlie Cane Frank Storey Kenyon played a neat little game. He systematically forged the signature of the accountant to the bank-book, and took £424 11s. ld., the whole available fonds of the council, and he was making arrangements for duly " applying" the £200 coming along from Govern- ment. The auditors, two months ago, called the attention of the council to the falsification of the entries in the cash-book. On one page of this book there were 19 erasures and alterations, and...

Mind-Reading Extraordinary in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884

Mind-Beading Extraordinary in Sydney. The London ECHO is making mach ofra per- formance in Paris by Stuart Cumberland, the mind reader. But feats of an equally extraordinary character were performed a short while ago in Sydney, and in different parts of Queensland, by Bice, the Australian mind-reader. This gentleman met a number of prejudiced dubious newspaper men in a certain Sydney office, and enlightened their understanding a bit. Bice was carefully blindfolded, and then taking the hand of any gentleman present deputed to secretly select some article in the room, he would place the closer figures tightly to his forehead, and moving slowly around, would alight with absolute certainty on the article selected. He was for a time, however, considerably baffled in one case. He was called upon to select an article like a square piece of card at the end of a hair rope. Bice thrice failed, and got into a painfully nervous state, perspiring as if in a sweating room. For the fourth time he ...

Illtreating a Hangman. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884

Ultreating a Hangman. A great deal of illfeeling has been aroused in Sydney at the unMendly -treatment, by the Hay people, of the hangman and his assistant, who had been engaged at the execution of Cordini at Denili- quin. A slight like this on one of the most favoured I and most obliging Sydney officials is not likely to be soon forgotten. Mr. Robert Howard, the N.S.W. finisher, is a gentleman who almost every day takes I his seat among ladies in the Paddington tram, passes their fares, and gives them change, and other I wise makes himself most agreeable. Certainly Mr. I Howard's appearance is not attractive-his face exhibiting the absence of a nose, whence comes the sobriquet, " Nosey Bob ;" but otherwise he's a most acceptable fellow-passenger. It has to be admitted, of course, that as the "fatal day" approaches, Robert usually gives way to drink, and may often then be seen, clad in the strictest black, helplessly clasp- ing a lamp-post. But on this occasion he doesn't appear to ...

Humbugging Immigrant Girls. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884

Humbugging Immigrant Girls. The neat little ¡game which; was exposed thé other day at Sydney is probably also carried on at other ports on the Australian coast. For a very long time it has been impossible for the general public to secure an immigrant girl for service-a select few always having the advantage, by some means or other. Respectable ladies, against whom not a , tittle could be uttered by anyone, invariably found thc girls prejudiced against them, and all sorts of excuses raised against engagement. Certain other ladies, however, could just as often succeed for themselves or their friends. À few days ago this sort of work was neatly exposed. A "goody-goody" association of old ladies, known as the " Girls' Benevolent Society," and who had worked the amiable Colonial Secretary for priority of interview in all cases, sent its president and four or five other artful and seasoned dames to interview a shipload of servant girls ; and, of course, these ladies had their pick. They t...

THE WEEK'S EVENTS. Tramway Consolation Stakes. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884

THE WEEK'S EVENTS. Tramway Consolation Stakes. . A very extraordinary case of tram mashing cost the Sydney Government, the other day, £900. This reminds ns of a little incident, related in the great piece, " Fun on the Bristol," now being played in Sydney. The Widow O'Breean-(Sheridan)-relates how her dying husband " went out into the sthreet, poor man, and was cut to pieces by the tram. And, ol course, I got £2000, which was a long way more than lie was worth, poor sow!. Ah! well, I thrust he's betther off. I know I om."

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884

TOPICS OF THE DAY. There is no pillow for Mr. Service. He has no rest. His greatness is fast dwarfing. Li fact, his own clothes are fitting him. The great and comprehensive scheme which' he baptised at the Sydney conference for the consolidation of Australia-beneath which was hidden. the paltry design of aggrandising Victoria at the expense of N.S.W. and Queensland-finds no sympathy at home or abroad. Lord Derby is amus- ing himself over the thing. Sir George Gray, the mcoming New Zealand Premier, ridicules the idea. Queensland assumes a . solid unconcern, like a millionaire in panic ; and N.S.W. has no time just sow, according to the Attorney-General, to attend to the matter. Even Little Mirams, the much despised but nevertheless the coming man of Victoria, ridicules the idea of making the federation and récidiviste affairs one policy for combined Australian action. Miranis' words are: "Federation was not ? likely to come about for years, if the Government of N.S.W. persisted in gi...

THINGS AND OTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884

THINGS AND OTHERS. - So far we have received no notice that the telegraphic charges have been re- duced. THE cutter Prospect has been engaged for a few days past in looking for the sunken Hibernia, with the intention of having her removed, but we understand that up to the present time no traces of her have been met with. AT a meeting of the Palmerston Quad- rille Assemblies Committee, held on Monday evening last, it was decided to hold the second dance of the series on Wednesday next, July 23rd, when we hope to see a good muster.

Woman Items. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884

Woman Items. Tbe following were the official directions for the Court morning on the occasion of the death of the Duke of Albany :-" The ladies to wear black dresses, white gloves, black or white shoes, feathers, and fans. Pearls, diamonds, or plain gold or silver ornaments. The gentlemen to wear black Court dress, with black swords and buckles. The Court to change the mourning on Sunday, the 20th of April next, viz., the ladies to wear black dresses, with coloured ribbons, flowers, feathers, and ornaments, or grey or white dresses, with black ribbons, flowers, and ornaments. The gentlemen to continue the same mourning. And on Sunday, the 11th of May next, the Court to go out of mourning. From information which has leaked out from the royal household, it appears that the Queen, on being informed by Sir Henry Ponsonby of the death of the Duke of Albany, was instantly pros- trated with gref. She was left to herself for some- time, and after a most painful ebullition of feeling, she ap...

Personal. Old John Eckford, aged 90, a pioneer of the Hunter, died at East Maitland on the 17th June. The Bev. Dr. Ellis sang " Sally in our Alley," at a Wollombi concert. This is simply going it. The Bev. Joseph H. Johnson, vicar of Tilshead, Wiltshire, the oldest English clergyman, is dead, aged 92. We quite forgot the other day to say that Lord Augustus Loftus is still Commander-in-sheep of the colonial forces. Monsignor Capel, who was instrumental in converting the Marquis of Bute to B. C.-ism, ls said to have made his fortune by that simple act. Major Chard, one of the heroes in the defence of Rorke's Drift, is in Sydney. We have, therefore, the Chard remains of the noble band. Bishop Barker, according to probate jost granted at Sydney, died worth £17,383. He was poorer by just half than Monsignor Lynch, who left (whist 1) about £35,000. Latest accounts show that Hicks Pasha, whose force was overcome by the Mahdi, was bar- barously murdered. His hands were first cut off, and hi...
