Execution of Ned Kelly. [Newspaper Article] — Singleton Argus — 13 November 1880
Execution of Ned Kelly. KELLY expiated his career of crime on Thursday, on the gallows, in Melbourne gaol. Up to a short period before his execution he entertained sanguine hopes of reprieve, and made frequent written appeals for clemency, but without avail. On Wednesday the governor of the gaol informed him that there was no hope, and told him he must prepare for the worst. Kelly made a final appeal that his body should be given up to his relatives for burial, but this was also re- fused as against prison regulations. His three sisters paid him a farewell visit on Wednesday night, and an affectionate scene ensued. Kelly retired to his bed at half-past 1 o'clock on Thursday morning, and was restless for about one hour, but then slept well until 5 o'clock, when he arose and engaged in prayer for 20 minutes. He then lay down again, and was visited shortly afterwards by the Rev. Deans Donoby and O'Hea, who ministered spiritual consolation, and remained with him until the last. They wou...

The freo .selectors are now a stroug body, and of course a sop to them is considered necessary to secure the roturn of these road and bridge statesmen to Parlia ment. The poor free'eelector is to bo used as a stepping stone, but I knosv that many of them arc widc-tiwiike enough to see that this dishonest cry has not been raisod for their especial benefit, nor for tho good of the State. Thoy ennnot help noticing that every advocate for this remission has n breeches' porket intorest in the matter, nnd while they would, if successful, save the £3 lus per at...

Human Depravity. [Newspaper Article] — Singleton Argus — 17 November 1880
Human Depravity. MINISTERS, in their descriptions of the corruption of human nature, are some-&lt;*> times supposed to be unduly severe. This is what the late Chief Justice Thompson, of-Pennsylvania, said in' relation to human dopravity::' ," If those who preaoh bad been lawyers previous to bntering the ministry, they would- know' and say far more about tho depravity of tho human heart than tho'y do. ' The. old ? doctrine of total dopravity. is the only. thing that can explain the falsehoods, the dishonesties, the licentiousness,, and, the- murders which are so rjfe in the world, Eduoa tion, refinement,.and even a high order of talent," cannot overcome tho inclina tion to evil, which exists in the heart, and has' taken pos?oeeion of the vory fibree of our nature." .
