A DOCTOR'S EVIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 12 July 1865
A DOCTOR'S EVIDENCE. In a case before the magistrates at the Temple Cloud petty sessions on Tuesday, in Which a farmer, named Major, of West Harptree, was charged with committing a violent assault on a labourer, named Butcher, complainant appeared in court with a large plaster over the bridge of his nose. Added to his pale countenance, it gave him a ghastly appearance, and greatly increased the sympathy for. him as he told his tale of grievance. A different complexion, however, was put upon the case by the singularly conclusive .evidence of the medical witness fordefeudant, Dr Perrin. That gentleman, before he was called to enter the witness-box, just vacated by the complainant, went up to the latter and pulled the plaster from his nose. Amid the laughter of every .one in court complainant then appeared with his nose and forehead perfectly free from wounds or any sign-of injury. The bench not- appearing to notice this bit of by-play, Mr Mogg, the defendant's attorney, gravely inform...
LIFEBELTS FOR SHIPWRECKED SAILORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 12 July 1865
lifebelts for shipwrecked i sailors; The committee of the Boyal National Lifeboat Institution have for several years been painfully impressed by the fact that, notwithstanding all the efforts made to rescue shipwrecked seamen, by means of the numerous lifeboats and rocket and mortar establishments which now happily surround our coasts, there are yet large numbers of sailors, amounting to several hundreds annually, who miserably perish on our shores. After a full consideration of the subject, and taking for their data the results of accidents to lifeboats, the crews of which have been provided with efficient lifebelts, and of others which have not been so, the committee have come to the conclusion that a large number of the unfortunate men who are thus everv year lost to their friends and their country might be saved if they were invariably supplied with really efficient lifebelts. With a view -to bring about so desirable an end, the committee of the National Lifeboat Institution hav...
HORRIBLE MURDERS BY NEGROES—A HEROIC LITTLE GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 12 July 1865
HORRIBLE MURDERS BY NEGROES\x=req-\ A HEROIC LITTLE GIRL. The Vicksburg Herald of the 24tti Jbebruary relates the particulars of a most horrid crime perpetrated in that vicinity. A short time since, at about ten o'clock at night, two negroes went to the residence of MrGarriiy, who is superintendent of Dick Christman's plantation, about sixty miles above that city, on the Mississippi river, and knoekihg at the door, ^mdi pistols. He applied he had neither, but had scarcely spoken when he was flred^ upon by both the ruffians, the shots strikinglhim Itr -s the back of the neck and completely paralys\x=req-\ ing him. Passing over what they supposed to be the dead body, they entered the house, murdered Mrs Garrity and two children, and ! shot through the shoulder a little girl. She fell, and though enduring intense pain, she I feigned death so well that the inhuman ! monsters really thought her dead, and j proceeded with their work of plunder without noticing her further.

DESPERATE ENCOUNTER WITH A BURGLAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 12 July 1865
DESPERATE ENCOUNTER WITH A BURGLAR. George Baker, aged twenty-nine, a powerful, desperate-looking fellow, who described himself as a labourer, and gave his address Norwich, was placed in the dock at the Clerkenwell Police Court on Tuesday, before Mr Barker, and charged with attempting 10 break into St Matthias's Church, Stoke Newington. He was further charged with having housebreaking implements in his possession, and with attempting to murder Police-Constable Charles James Conway, 110 N. The complainant said—This morning, about half-past twelve o'clock, I was on duty in Cut Throat Lane, at the hack of St Matthias's Church, Stoke Newington. I saw the prisoner and another man loitering about, and, suspecting from their movements that they were up to no good, I watchedlthem, hiding myself in a narrow footpath. After being concealed a few minutes, the prisoner and bis companion got on the top of the wall at the back of the church; but seeing, me they got down, and hid themselves in the...

SUNDAY WORK IN NEWSPAPER OFFICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 12 July 1865
SUNDAY WORK IN NEWSPAPER OFFICES. Dr Buchanan asks why it should be impossible to produce a paner on the Monday morning without taking the half or any part of the Sabbath to do it? The answer is that there is no physical impossibility in the matter. It has been done in Glasgow, and there is a paper, it seems, in Edinburgh which, though of too short existence yet to render its experience of much value, is professing to do the same thing again. The only drawback upon this arrangement is that the compositers are required to work till the stroke of twelve on Saturday night, and to began at the same hour I on Sabbath night. The effect consequently is to render the Sabbath day to these men the same as other days of the week—that is, a day the opening of which finds them at work, the middle of which finds them asleep, and the close at work again. It precludes the possibility of their attendance at public wor ship, and of being ail example on that day as tbey ought to be, to their families....
GREAT BANK ROBBERY OF £50,000. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 12 July 1865
GREAT BANK ROBBERY OF £50,000. A most extraordinary and daring ro bery has taken place at the Central Bank of Western India, Hong-Kong, where the * thieves got clear off ivitE gold and specie to the extent of nearly £50,000. The affair, was managed during Saturday and Sunday by means of a tunnel, which had been dug between, a drain and the floor of the bank treasury vault, a -distance of sixty feet. A Jag was raised up, and entrance to the vault obtained. Here were many bans of? dollars, four boxes of gold bars, several boxes of small! silver coin, and 63,000 dollars in bank notes. I The banknot havinga note issue of its own, the notes were those of various other banks,! •• and- their numbers had not been taken, it not being customary in Hong-Kong to keep the numbers bank notes on hand. Two boxes of gold fears were removed as-well* us all the paper money, also two bags of dollars, and a box of ten cent pieces.. The authorities at Canton and Macao were at once communicated with so th...

COMMERCIAL. Wam^eoo Times Office, Tuesday Evening. I There is not much alteration in trade. Mechanics belonging to the bujjlding''depart ment are all busy. With the jobs the master builders have in hand, and the proposed Govern ment works expected-to be contracted for shortly,: leaves no doubt but there will be abundance of work for some months yet. ' Beef and mutton for some time past has been of a very inferior kind, and the butchers are now nearly out of sheep and cattle. _ • The Smelting Works are making large quanti ties of copper. One week this month the large quantity of 100 tons was turned out of the refinery, the greatest quantity yet made in the same time. The ordinary produce is about 80 tons per week. The rain on Sunday last supplied most of those having tanks with water. A great want of teams exists to cart the ore from Moonta and other mines. The state of the _ roads prevents heavy loading, but no doubt the extreme rates that are being paid, arid iJie cer tainty of get...
ESCAPE FROM A NUNNERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 12 July 1865
ESCAPE FROM A NUNNERY. — The South Essex Independent tells the following extraorbinary story " On Sunday j morning, about half-past six o'clock, a railway signalman named Thomas Furze was on duty at the Chelmsford Station, when a young woman carrying a bundle came up to him, and said ' Do tell me w heu I can get tq London.' He replied, * Not till the Parliamentary train arrives, a little after half-past ten o'clock.V She said, 11 am very sorry; but can you tell me where I can get something to eat?1 He took her to Mr Gardiner's hotel opposite, and some breakfast was prepared for her. Whilst partaking of the meal, she said she had been disgracefully treated, at New Hall N unnery, and' had escaped that morning before break of dav from the window of her room. She effected her escape by means of a rope, having first thrown two feathers beds-out of the window to alight upon when once she let go her hold of the rope, which was not long enough to reach the ground. "She had been eleven month...

THE COLLIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 12 July 1865
THE COL.LIER. No other vessels are subject to such changes of depression and elevation as the collier. Wheu load she is uncomfortably close to .the water, and if there be much sea, is terribly wet and unpleasantly dangerous. There is no buoyancy whatever in her. Instead of rising gently to the approaching wave, she plunges under it, and half drowns a man who may happen to be on the bowsprit before she recovers from the shock. If at anchor, and the weather be stormy, she is nearlj as bad, and rides M bows under." When " injiallast,'* she is perhaps the most unwiedly machine afloat. .It- is true that, with a fair wind, she will sail tolerably well, fyut the sea must riot be rough, or she will roll so much as to endanger the safety of the masts. In fine weather, and with a tide running strongly in her favour, the light collier will imitate the xnanoauyxe of working to windward^! It is at best, however, only a burlesque, as a I spectator who on shore watches one of them will readily per...
