A HEIR AT LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 5 January 1871

A-HETIR AT LAW. The case of .Toms v Toms, heard on the 13th of December in the Supreme Court, Wellington posigsses some interest, inasmuch as the validity of a marriage between a British subject and an tboriginal was at question. It appeared that one George Toms had been a whaler on the New Zeal land coast long before the settlement of the island by Europeans; and like many men of his class he settled himself in Queen Chart lotte's`Sound, and took unto himself the daughter of an aboriginal chief. Archdeacon Williams, who happened at that time (1839) to be travelling through the islanids, then not under the British Crown, obtaining signatures to the Treaty of Waitangi, perI formed the ceremony of marriage between Joseph Toms and his native bride To Ua, iccording to the forms of the Church of England; the bride being then big with child-the present plaintiff, Thomas Toms. Phese parties lived as man and wife until the death of the latter. The Bishcp of Wellington deposed that Archdeaco...

Kilmore Free Press PUBLISHED THURSDAY MORNING. THURSDAY, JANUARY 5, 1871. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 5 January 1871

PuarITrED THURSnAY .1ORNING. THURSDAY, JANUARY' 5, 1871. ThE general election of members of the Legislative Assembly will soon take place, and the people of the country are already casting about amongst. themselves for suitable candidates, whilst not a few, as yet unknown to fame, have already intimated their inten. ticn of sacrificing themselvet for the sake of the public by becoming aspirants to legislai tive honors. Of course the bait of £300 per annum can have nothing to do with the number of many self'sacrificiug gentlemen who are rushing into the political arena, and to disabuse the public of any erroneous ims pression formed to the contrary, several have already adgnified their intention of presenting the salary to more worthy objects of charity than themselves. Now this is no doubt a very easy way for candidates to relieve their consciences, and at first glance- may be demned'a most desirable method of assisting charitable institutions, and speaking for our own district, we ...

Local. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 5 January 1871

It is rumoured that Mr Laurence Bourke does not intend to offer himself for this constituency at next election. We give the rumour as we heard it, but we imagine if Mr Bourke thought himself anything like secure, the £800 per annum would be a bait he would not willingly relinquish. As Mr Gavan Duffy is known to have been invited. to a neighboring constituency, we are glad to be able to announce that it is his intention to remain in Dalhousie. A large addition has been made to the electoral roll in this division of the county, and in the highly improbable case of a contest his for. metr :jorities, splendid as they were, would be largely increased.

The course lay from the starting post opposite the Sheaf hotel, to a flag erected off the island, near the gardens, thence round a post-office, Mr. Wynne's house, near the Oriental hotel, and from that to the starting-post, three times round--a distance, as the crow flies, of about eight miles; bat in sailing, as the boats did yesterday, about fourteen miles.

TI?E GERMANS AT ST. CLOUD. Herr Wachenhursen, writing to the Col. ogne Gazette from St Cloud, on the 29th, Bays: "One day is much like another here. On our side the most perfect silence, according to orders; on the French side, the greatest animation. They dig and scrape until the blood gushes from their fingers, and of an evening they sing before our eyes their cancan and their 'Marseillaise,' and other pretty songs, leap and shout half the night, until we are tired of it, and are as merry as if the world had never treated them better than now. I beheve the Corps Francs and other volunteers have already plundered half the suburbs, and have taken to the secondhand dealers nll the stolen erticles that were vendible; they have therefore had a glorious time of it. The mob amuses itself, and the heroic youths, the gandi?s and petits creves of the boulevards, give themselves up to a gallows humor, which will last until everything becomes topsy turry.

It is true the qzes. tion may ariso, where is the utihty of it, seeing that every man, woman, and onild poaseses a talking machine, mole or less perfect, of his or her.own. Bus the machine has its utility nevertheless, for it illus. trates a much neglected scionces of accoustics. More over, it is highly interesting as showing how far ingenuity may go. The machine has a mouth, with tongue and lips, which are set in motion by a mechanical apparatus which sets free a. portion of air from a large bellows, and so controls if as to produce ...
