THE LARRIKIN IN PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 1 December 1870
The infamous attack upon the judges by those parliamentary larrikins, Messr Vale and Longmuore, ought to open the eyes of the public to the disagreeable fact that nobody is safe from the vilest slander in this community; and that certain constituencies are satisfied to be represented by men, who fulfil all the conditions of existence, which combine to make the chartered rough a veritable curse of society. For a person like Mr Vale to call the honor and integrity of the judges in question is a trifle too much of a bad thing; but for Mr Longmore to utter his miserable impertinences is only natural. Mr Vale and his Smith and Lonnmoce surroundings are the Calibans of the House--"most poor credulous monsters" and withal perfidious. He, Mr Vale, is on offspring of the Sycorex of the Melbourne Press; and it may occesiocally be well to ask this gentle Public the home question put by Prospero to Ariel in the Tom pest : "oaet thou forgot the foul witch Syoorax"- of the Melbourne Press-and "Ca...

SUFFERINGS AFTER THE BATTLE OF SEDAN. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 8 December 1870
SUFFERINGS AFTER THE BATTLE OF SEDAN. There was dismal work to be done amid all the rain and mud of the days which fol l owed the great victory. The dead were to be buried and the wounded were to be re. moved for fear of sickness, As late as the fourth day there were dozens of dead French.. men on the road between Sedan and Gavone, and it was not until the sixth day after the battle that the dead horses were seriously dealt with. So many men still living but suffering great agony, claimed the care of all who could lend a helping hard, that to leave the dead unburied for awhile was as nothing in comparison. In the villages, on the battlefield itself, there was scarcely a foot of shelter to be found unoccupied. Every house had a garrison of wounded men, and the doctors were busy with their drugs and instruments working hard to relieve the sufferers. The red cross of the hospital assistants was to be seen in all directions, If there was a mass of sufferers co be helped and tended, ther...
