The Independent "ONWARD AND UPWARD." FOOTSCRAY, SATURDAY, JANUARY 26, 1884. Crime. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 26 January 1884

"ONWARD AND UPWARD." FooTSCRAY, SATURDAY, JANUARY 26, I884. WE are not among the.ardent believers in:drastic measures for the suppression of :crime, especially when theyi take the form!. of. physical. punishment; :ais;h6' doubt in many instances the infliction tends to degrade a man in his own eyes, crush outall remaining vestiges of human feeling, and drive him to the nmost des perate and deepest vortices oft vice. Still there are crimes which are excep-' tional in their cowardly brutality, and wherever such a nature is showrin the torture of the lash: should be applied with the utmost : severity, for, .nothihg will strike terror to the heart of 'a cobward like a dose of bodily'sufferiig.' In times, happily gone, when the penal code. was stringent,. even ::to savage harshness, a-nd the hangman's rope was unsparingly. applied -for such minor offences as, sheepstealing andforgery, when property was held more sacred than life or limb, crime was more pre valent than it is in the presen...

FOOTSCRAY V. MELBOURNE. A match between elevens froni the above clubs was played on Saturday, on the local ground, and resulted in a win for the visitors. .The Footscray were minus the services of Langwill and Gatland, the lattei's absence was greatly felt, as several mistakes were made by the player, who took his place behind the wickets.

"I would not be far wrong in saying that we are practically defenceless, so far as organisation goes. We have certainly a lot of officers, but no men, and yet those who look into the political future are far from satisfied with the aspect of European affairs. Lord Wolsely, who should be in a good position to judge of the outlook, gave a note of warning to the volunteers at St. James's Hall, when he pointed out that every nation in Europe was arming, and a terrible war was.evidently impending, for which England should be prepared. And if Britain should be ready, what should we do ? ..who are dependencies of that nation; yet removed by half the world from the aid of her resources, and are pr...

TIUE STRANGER IN LONDON.-That the Great City will ere long be hardly recognisable by its former denizens, all the world has heard. The visitor passing up the' Thames now finds .his eye gratified by the many edifices .recertly erected. As he reaches the famous Victoria Embankment, there rises over him on the right hand the new Times office, and on the left hand the new tower-crowned works of Messrs JAMIEs Ers & .Co., both phases of Italian architecture. It may be said that these two buildings are types of the far reaching business energy of the nineteenth century, for it has re sulted from such means that these two establish ments have brought themselves to the fore, and that the amrual issue of each has come to be estimated by millions. Durina the last year, the number of copies of the Times is estimated at 16,276,000, while the number of packets of Errs's COCOA sent off in" the same period is computed at 14,749,69$. The latter is a large total, when it is borne tn mind that...
