Fatal Mining Accident at Blackwood, Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 15 January 1870

Fatal Mining Accident 'at Black wood, Victoria. Two men named Lewis Sohinkle and Antonie Olsen, have met a melancholy death, at Barry's Beef, Black wood. The shaft at which the unfortunate men lost their lives is an underlay one, about 140ft. deep. For the first 60ft. the shaft is almost perpendicular, and at the side of the shaft spreaders arc fixed about 3ft. apart j the spreaders serve as a kind of ladder way; from 60ft, and a further depth of 80ft, the shaft un derlays. Two windlasses are'used, one on the surface and the other at the COft. level, one exactly over the other. The contract party consisted of six men, and they worked two in each shift. It is evident,; judging from the position of the bodies when discovered, that the poor fellows were endeavouring to ascend ; one man (Antonie Olsen) must have fallen — it is impossible to say from what height. Brave men are always at hand in cases of this kind, ready and willing to risk thcir lives in endcauouring to cave the lives of...

Captain Hall Arrested on a Charge of Murder. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 15 January 1870

Captain Hall Arrested on a Charge of Murder. Captain Hall, the well-known Arctic explorer, was on October 4 charged by 'Walter Bayne, before 'Recorder Martindale of Jersey City, with the murder of a brother-in-law of the accuser, Patrick Goleman, on his return voyage, two years ago. Bavne alleged that Coleman had been one of a whaling party that arrived at Repulse Bay in 1865 ; that then and there Coleman was, with a few of his companions, induced to enroll himself among the men engaged on board of Captain Hall's vessels ; that a year subsequently Coleajan failed to comply with a command with sufficient promptitude to please the 'Captain, who fired upon Coleman, inflicting injuries from which he died within a fortnight. Captain Hall's explanation is that Coleman stood at the head of four mutineers of the crew. Bayne denies this, alleging that Coleman, as far as he can learn, had been guilty of no act of insubordination. On this show of facts, Bayne asked the Recorder to issue a warr...

To the triggers wires were attached, and I placed along the ground to the grave vines, so that the I grape thief would be likely to get his feet entangled in I the wires and receive the contents of the guns. For I awilo blank cartridges only were used, whicU failed to | have the desired effect. Under these circumstances | Mr. Field charged one of the guns with large shot, and I plenty of it; at the same he warned his family of what he had done, and put up sign-boards around his pre ? mises; ' Beware of the Spring Guns.'
