SHOCKING IMMORALITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 10 March 1876

SHOCKING IMMORALITY. Despite the fact that the much- vaunted Education Act has been in force for the past three years, and that one of its leading features is the so- called '"compulsory clause," instances of its failure to accomplish the objects for which it was framed are of almost daily occurrence. The latest is a most revolting story of gross immorality, which comes to us from Sandhurst, the constituency of the member who so long administered the act, and so fre- quently boasted of its complete effi- ciency. On Wednesday afternoon a man named John Duffus was brought in from Goornong, having been ar- rested by Constable Clark, on a charge of violating his own daughter under the age of twelve years. Duffus ap-   pears to have carried on a system of immorality in his family, as his eldest daughter aged twenty-two years, has a child seven years old, of which he is the reputed father, and his second daughter, aged fifteen, also has been victimised in a similar manner. Du...

SHOCKING SELF-MUTILATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 14 March 1876

SHOOCKING SELF-uJIT-IA fO10. A fearful case of self-mutilation, while under the influence of religious mania, oc curred on Thursday morning. Charles Erskine, a cabinctmaker in the employ of Miessrs. Solomon and Co., with whom he has been for four years was observed by hIis benchmates to be more than usuaolly tacitiurn, and to be constantly referring to a small pocket Bible which he carried with him. Suddenly he tourned round from his bench, and, leaving his work, walked rapidly across the worshop to the circular saw, which was at the time being driven with great rapidity, and before any one in the room lhad time to comprehend what he was about to do, placed his wrist againist the rapidly rovolving ic strement, which instantly severed hIis hand from the arm, and left It hanging by a thread of muscle. The blood gushed out with olarming force, and the man was tnaken to the hospital. When askled wha~t had prompted him to commit such a rash act Erskine replied that I his right hand hadl ...

AG1?kJZOULT'URAL O0TVES. in tirhe up-country districts water is be coning scarce, and the Irardess of the ground is complarined of as hirdering plough ing operations A few' heavy showers to soften tile hardl surface crust, and replenish tihe waterholes are much wanted. Thresh ing in thie latest districts is drawing to a close, and the harrvest returns continue to nutify large yields of wheat from the new districts. In almost every instance, also, the quality is returned as being good, and the area under crop varies from 30 to 100 per cent. of an:incrcase.

NOTES AND EVI'iNTS. The Birregirra Athletic Sports take place on Wednesday next, thle 15th inst., and we need hardly say that great interest is cen tered in the trysting place. Those sports have been snifonnly carried ont in such a straightforward manner, and the handicap ping of MIr. G. ]i. Rippon has invariably resulted in close finishes, that some splendid contests may he looked for on Wednesday next at the sports. As showing the favor in which the handicapping for the Cop is held by the competitors, no fewer than thir teen out of the sixteen nominated have ac cep'ted. For the District Cup, MIessrs. J. F. Strachlan, G. Kettle, and D. M'Lellan have entered. The first race, we are re qunested to state, will start punctually at 12 o'clock noon.

Probably the "ol& women" did not wish to enlighten Mrs. Smith as to who are the satellites on racing matters at Colae; or .probably thdy.are not ashamed of their handicapping, but are afraid that their services might be solicited for the up country districts, in lieu of Mr. Barnard.

Thalt a body of individuals, after indulging for months in scenes of turbulence anid scurrility, for which the members of the Government were larc,ely blamneable, should have sud denly become virtuous, was a matter of surprise; but that one who had borne a prominent part in opposing Sir James M'Culloch should have been selected as the first victim was easily umlderstood. Mr. L'Kean, it is well known, has an infirmity of temper, and is easily ex cited.
