SHOCKING TRAGEDY AT CHILWELL [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 28 May 1869
SHOCKING TBaQERDY AT CHILWBLL A VF.KtLPVL tragedy was enacted In' Noble-street, Chilwell, on 'Wednesday evening, through which a yertoran soldier iiamed Danagher baB met with a more terrible fate than if hfe fell with his comrades of the 18th Royal Irish before £eba*tapol. ' The circumstances leading up to this catas trophe furnish another example of what many a depraved -woman can entail on society. About three years ago a draper in Ballarat, named Fullor, left for reasons not dis closed, his wife and three children, and nothing further has been heard of him beyond the fact that he went to Gippsland. His wife subsequently removed to Geelong, and the brother of her husband, Edward fuller, a native of the town, aged - twenty-four, in the employ as cxi tcr of Mr. J. W. Roberts, took up his residence with her, and furnished her house. Within the past tn-elve months the woman has been delivered of a child, of which her brother-in-law is the reputed father. About six weeks since, William...

SEVENTEEN MONTHS WITHOUT FOOD. A ?A.uA graph has been going I he round of the papers under ihe heading of ' Strange Story from Carmarthenshire,' eta-ing that a young girlhns lived for ?seventeen months without food. The Lancet qiioted'-the paragraph, nnd ridiculed Ihe - credulity of tne vicar of the parish, who has written to the papers expressing his belief in ihe story.. In conscience of this, the father of the cirl. ifr.

THE GREAT WILL CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 4 June 1869
SHE OREAT WILL CASE, One of the most extraordinary trials which has ever occupied the courts of this colony has juet been brought to a conclusion after occupying the judge and Jury for twelve days. It was an issue tried to test the validity of a'' document said to be the last will and testa* munt of the late Hon. Tames Mitchell and which appointed a person named Woltskehl as sole executor for a period of twenty-one years. The property of Dr. Mitchell is said to be worth £100,000 and in a good measure consists af mineral lands, and for the last two years Wolfskehl has had a great many business transactions with him with reference to the working of these lands. One of the roost extraordinary features in this caso was the influence which Woltskehl hud obtained over Dr. Mitchell, notwithstanding that the friends and family of the latter did all they could to counteract it by showing that all the . promises of the former remained unfulfilled. One of these was to the effect that he was to...
THE LICENSED VICTUALLERS' ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 4 June 1869
THE XTCENSEB VICTtL&LIiERS' ACT. The appended article, which we take from the Sydney Sporting life, comments on a matter of great importance to the publican, and it can scarcely be denied the particular clause therein dealt with is anything but just. ' ?TJndflrthe existing Licensed Victuallers' Act. a publican cannot recover a debt for sale and delivery of wine, beer, or spirits, unless such -sale be of four gallons and upwards in amount. Any quantity under four gallons, if sold on credit, is so sold at the risk of the vendor. If the purchaser does not pay, the publican cannot compel him. In 'this regard, as in many others, the licensed victuallers are gravely wronged. : Let us put the, matter tbus^ — A person takes up bis residence at an hotel. He is supplied with food and lodging, and with such liquor as he may request to be pro. vided. When his bill, however, is pre. sented, wje wiir suppose that hs refuses to pay it. The publican seeks recovery at law, and at best obtain...
FENCING OP RUNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 4 June 1869
FENCING OF RUNS. A correspondent of the Pastoral Times records his practical experience of tbe feocing*in of runs: — I find, he says, my sheep to thrive much better, the wool is more in quantity, better in quality, and cleaner, the sheep far quieter than when shepherded, and I have no difficulty in mustering and drafting. My sheep graze in about 20,000 acre paddock; I always muster and draft all the sheep in one pad dock in a day oitb two men besides myself, having the drafting yards in the centre of the paddecks. After sheep have been taken two oribreo times to the wells, I fiod they will go regular, themselves. I always have a few old sheep amongst the weaners; sometimes sheep will g«*t into a corner, but very seldom and I never lost a sheep from that cause. My lambing is equal to the lambing in band, without the coBtand what always exceeded the cost, the very great annoyance from the men «ngag«d dnriog lambing, who eeetn to have only (wo objects in view— how much rations could th...
EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 4 June 1869
'' '.'7' ~' EfitlGrEATIOSr' It is reported, on good authority, that the chief measure to. be. introduced byr. the Go vernment during tbe coming 'session will jbe a bill to promote emigration, and that there will probably be a great party-^gbt «n 4be question. Great difference of opinion 'exists j «s to the desirability or otherwise of assisted I emigration from the mother country to! this colony, Un the one band itis asserted that labour is quite equal to the demand, and that to introduce more would only be to bring about additional poverty, without any counteracting . advantages. On the other side^it is stated that the country is of enormous extent, 'possesses immense resources, and only requires population to make it really prosperous and great. Those who live by labour «lone cry out that additional labourers must bring about a re duction in the price of labour, which is, sufficiently low at present, and , they point l to the unemployed in rthe metropolis and' large towns at the '...

HoixoWAi'e Pnaa.— Fluttering of tfa Heart.— This may be a temporary inconvenience, or the certain prelude to ulterior mischief.
