THE BEECHER SCANDAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 4 April 1876

THE BEECIHER SCANDAL. The Beccher scandal is still exciting great interest iu the States. The declaration of Henry C. Bowen, in which he says, "Now, Ibeing summoned to spieak, and to speak the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, I solemnly give it. It is tmsy utn wavering opinion, in view of all the facts anod evidcle presented to me, that the Rev. Henry vWard Beechler, without a shadow of doubt in my mind, is guilty of adultery, perjury and hypocrisy," Ihas shaken confi dcence itn Bcccher, even amongst those who hitherto have stood by himt. The Graphic, referring to what it terms the "Bowens Torpedo," says :--" This terrible arraigu mntet at once explodes and ilows away all the veils with which the bottom facts of the scandal have been covered up. The whole black business is re-opened and exposed to daylight, and nlo onsunting of law?yers; and no subterfuge of Church or other councils, and no platet ecclesiastical whitewashing can cover the loathesome alid putrid mas...

DR. CARRONSIRJULIUS VOGEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 4 April 1876

DR. CA1RR ONSTR.JULIUS V OGEL. Dr. Carr, the Phrenologist, has been lec turing at New .Plymouth, on "The Public Men of New Zealanhud." Of Sir Julius Vogel he says :-" He is great in New Zealand as Lycurgus in Sparta." The vulgar man can not comprehend him ; to the educated, he is a political phenomenon. Iu the structure of his brain there is less of beauty than of mental and of moral force. The uninitiated ploint to the receding forehead ; the phrenolo gists point to the super-prominence of the basilar region of the forehead called the per ceptive region, that projects out froms over his eyes like bold promontories into the sea. This enlargement anid capacity of the organs of the perceptive faculties renders the upper facial augle almost acute. While it deter mines huge powers of penetration, it does not diminish the power of reason. hGreat in calculation, and tact in knowledge of human nature ; a man gifted with faculties of dis crimlination so acute, that he readily dis covers the...

MR. SHERWIN'S CICARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 4 April 1876

MR. SIIERWIrS MCIARS. From the Telegraph we learn that at the District Court on Thursday, Mr. Walter Sherwin was charged with illegally importing a luantity of cigars. Mr. Cur!ner, the Crown solicitor, appeared for the Customs Depart ment ; and Mr. .1. B.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 4 April 1876

THIE Legislative Council of this colony does not very often suggest or give birth to any measure which savors of progress in the right direction, but we are constrained in all common fairness to give it credit for the attempt which is now being made to put a stop to what are wrongly called art-unions. The grave abuses which are opelly sanctioned by the law tunder the cloak of art-unions are a disgrace to the colony, and should not be allowed to exist any longer. Nearly every weekl affords an instance of what we are now referring to, and some of the latest developments are the Wood's Point Hospital and Ballarat Carnival arrange ,ments. The promoters of art-unions havepromulgatedsomenewideas, which, by the way, are not at all illiberal, respecting " works of art," as we find sovereigns described as such in the advertisements relating to these matters. This is going a little too far, and we trust that the Legislative Council may succeed in the attempt to check this wholesale gambling, ...

THE HISTORY OF SUICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 4 April 1876

THE HIIISTORY OF SUICIDI. At a recent meeting of the Medico-Legal Society of San Francisco, R. S. Guernsey's paper on The Penal Laws Relating to Suicide in Ancient and Modern Times was read by Dr. Miller. After delining the difference between the two classes of suicides recog nised by the law, the author took up the history of suicide and the laws bearing upon it in different ages and different countries. The Mosaic law contains no penalty for felo de se. The first suicides mentioned in tlhe Old Testament were those of Saul and his armor-bearer. Samlson's death can hardly be called a suicide. Josephus says that in Judea the body of the man who had takenl his own life was not buried till after sunset. In sosme parts of India suicide was once con sidered meritorious, but the self-ismolation of widows on the funeral pyres of their hus bands is no longer permitted. In China suicide is by no nmelns unlcosmmon, and lno disgrace attaches to the victim of his own violence or to his family. ...

NOTES AND EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 4 April 1876

NOTES AND EV?'NTS. -- Our subsidised local contemporary a short time since charged uswith forcing The Herald upon the people of Colac, and stated that our paper had been thrown into the gutter, &c. We denied the truth of this statement and challenged our contemporary to the proof, at the same time inaking the reservation that The Herald had been sent to Mr. J. G. Jennings, as he had not complied with our rules when discontinuing the paper. We also stated a court of law would decide who was in the right, as between Mr. Jennina? and ourselves. We have now mluch pleasure in stating that Mr. Jennings has paid for all the papers "pitched in the gutter" by him, or by his orders, as we received a cheque from that gentlemen a day or two since, paying his subscription to the 31st of March last. 1Towever, we notice that nor sulbsidised contemporary has not thought proper to accept our challenge with reference to this subject Perhops, like the man who eat the crow stuffed with snuff, a...

LARRIKINS UNDER ARMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 4 April 1876

LARRIiKI5JJS UNDER ARMS. Larrikinism in Collingwood is assuming a very serious aspect. Hitherto the hands of young ruffians included in this designation have contented themselves with using slung shot, knuckle dusters and similar insutru ments in their violent assaults upon peace able citizens'haiving the misfortune to, cross their path. Now, however, they have re sorted to tirearms. On W\ednesday a gang of lads, ranging in age from fourteen to seventeen years, tookl up a position in front of Black's Norfolk Hotel, at the corner of Budd and Easey streets, Collingwlood, aind on the proprietor of the house passing behind the bar in front of tihe open door, one of the band deliberately levelleds a dloule-barrelledt Iun at his head, and after discharging the wcapon ran away. Fortunately it was Iadlly aimed, and the charge, which consisted of emall pclbles, missed the intended victim, and malde havoc of the glasses and bottles ranged on the shelv\es at the back of the bar.

THE LADIES AND LEAP YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 4 April 1876

THE LADIES AND LEAP YEAR. The New Year 1876 being Bis-sextile or Leap Year, I think it will be as well for the ladies if, as an old lawyer, I enlightened them of the subject of their legal rights and privileges during its currency. The privileges accorded to the female sex during leap year are part and parcel of the common law of England, and granted to the sex by custom for several hundred years. There are still in force, because they have not been expressly repealed by any statute law. Though disused they still remain, and any lady may lawfully exercise the rights and privileges which leap year confers upon her during its currency from the lst January to 31st December. The law is-if a lady, during leap year, makes a gentleman an offer of marriage, he must not refuse her. By her doing so she is paying him a very high compliment, and, while availing herself of her own undoubted right, she is giving him a very best possible proof of the sincerity of her attachment to him. Very unmanl...

STARTING INFORMATION ABOUT SOVEREIGNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 4 April 1876

STA RT/'ING 11\rFOR11r 'TION3 ABOUT SO VERI IGiTS Some interesting but at first sight rather startling information as to the changes in weight which gold may undergo in a short time has been given by MIr. Palmer, the Deputy-Governor of the Bank. Ir. Pahnlmer told the House of Commons Select Committee on Banks of Issue last sessionl that the Bank of England weighed coin to the amount of £f3,100,000 last year, and rejected £340,000 as light gold; and he added that boxes of correctly weighed gold sent by the Bank of England to Scotland frequently come back without having been opened, and are then found to have undergone somen reduction in weight. This Mr. Pahner explains by ob serving that the mere shaking of the sovereigns on the journey will make a slight difference. There is, of course a point at which every sovereign becomes light, and many sovereigns turn that point on the jour ney. Mr. Hodgson, MI.P., a bank director, then stated that in a box of 5000 sovereigns, the number which...

LEGISLATIVE, ASSEMBLY. The lHouse was principally engaged in dis cusing the new Loan Bill proposed by the Government. By this measureit is intended to raise three millions at 4 per cent., consist ing of £2,500,000 for the completion of public works, including railways, waterworks and schools, and £500,000 in lieu of debentures issued under the Public Works Loan Act Amendment Act 1874, a large balance of dce beontres issued under which could not be disposed of. Sir James MI'Culloch, in sub mitting his proposals, made a lengthy state ment, in which he referred to the precise objects to which the money would be ap plied, but affording very little information as regards railway extension, for the pur pose of which £1,300,000 was required. £500,000 would be applied to the erection of school buildings, £96,000 to railway bridges, £233,000 for water works, the balance going to repay to the consolidated revenue the ad vances made for the erection of State schools.
