THE VICE-ROYALTY OF IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 October 1864
* Tl?E VIOE-ROYALTY OF IILELlND. Meanwhile, the Irish satrap, Lord Car lisle, has come home from Dublin, sick and bored to death by harassment; and the vice royalty has again gone begging. The phantom kingship has boon offered to the Marquis of Lansdowno, the Duke of Devon shire, and to other noblemen, but one and .all they have begged to be excused. They all prefer to remain on their own estates. SFailing any other grandeo, the Times hints that the post has been conferred on Lord lWodohouse. The Irish press asks why not send Prince Alfred to reign at Dublin Castle ? Such a measure would be extremely popular, and do much to destroy Irish dis content.
FATAL RIOTS IN BELFAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 October 1864
FATAL RIOTS IN BELFAST. Ireland is determined not to forfeit its traditional character of being England's chief difficulty. During a full week or more, the most thriving and wealthy town in the north of the sister island has been in the hands of a mob. Civil government had broken down, business was at a complete stand-still, and faction perpetrated unchecked its mad and bloody orgies. There is still considerable obscurity enveloping the origin of those ferocious outbreaks. The explana tion generally given and accepted is, that they began in an attempt to got up counter demonstrations to a great Catholic ovation at Dublin. On Monday, the 8th inst., the ceremony of laying the foundation-stone of the pedestal which is to sustain a statue of O'Connell took place in the Irish metropolis. The proceedings of the inauguration passed off in a manner highly creditable to all con corned. Of course there was a good deal of patriotic talking, but everything was orderly and peaceable. The populat...
THE ROYAL CHARTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 October 1864
TIHE ROYAL CHIIARTER. It would appear that the wreck of the ill fated Royal Charter is likely to provo a per potual mine of wealth to the enterprising purchasers. Availing themselves of the calmness of the son, they lately re-commoncod operations, with theview of recovering somno of the lost specie. On one day the divers brought up eighty sovereigns, on another twenty, and on at third day eight sovereigns. It is believed that considerable sums will ultimately be recovered.
AUSTRALIAN TRANSPORTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 October 1864
.AUSTRALIAN TRANSPORTATION. The audacious outrages reported by the last mail as having been perpetrated in Mol bornuo, during the ordinary hours of busi ness and in the most frequented thorough litres, have attracted a good deal of notice on this side. Such startling facts will go far towards olpening the eyes of the public, and I hope of' our legislators and rulers also, to the shameful injustice of persisting in empty ing out our ruffianism upon the shores of the Australian continent. Suflicient for every country is the evil thereof. I believe that in your stern protest against the con tintiance of this evil any longer, you have the sympathy and hearty good wishes of the vast majority of our people; and that fa vourable public sentiment must tell upon the administration in the long run. Moreover, it would appear that they are now deprived of the main argument on which they rested the justification of a practico so veheomoently condemned by all the larger colonies, namely, the anxi...
TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE SYDNEY, Friday afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 October 1864
7ELEBGIAPHIC IVNELLIGEVGCE [FnoM ou0R cORuESPONErrTB. ] * --- SYDNEY, Friday afternoon. I' the Legislative Assembly last night, Mr. Arnold accused Mr. Holroyd of appointing Dr. Hamilton to the commission of the peace for pecuniary con siderations, and offered to prove the charge. The House ordered an investigation into the matter. The debate on the want of confidence amendmont of Mr. Cowper is adjourned till Tuesday next. Friday night. The flour market is firmer, a vessel having ar rived at Melbourne from California in ballast. " The old man," Bon Hall's mate, has been cap tured, and lodged in the jail at Forbes. The Holroyd case is yet unfinished; but so far as it has gone at present, it wears a grave anpeet.
THE WATERLOO-BRIDGE MYSTERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 October 1864
TILE WATERLOO-BRIDGE MYSTERY. Writing of horrors, I am reminded that a solution has boon offered of the Waterloo bridge Mystery. Theoro are probably few of your readers who will not remember the discovery some years ago of the muti lated remains of a human being, packed away in a'carpet bag, which lodged on the foot of one of the parapets of Wiatorloo bridge. The excitement at the time was tremondous; all sorts of conjectures to ex plain the circumstance wore hazarded-that of the police authorities being to the effect that the remains were those of a patient who had been dissected by some medical student, iand which, when done with, insteadof being decently buried, woere intended to be lowered into the Thames. After all this lapse of time, there seems a chanco of the mystery being cleared up; and as the light comes from the neighbouring colony of Tasmania, I would call attoution to the subject. The medium through which the alleged oexplana tion reaches the B3ritish public is Mr. Geo...
LOCAL AND PROVINCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 October 1864
LOCAL AND PROVINCIAL. _ROUIEeRY or THE BRADWOOu MAsL.-About midnight on Thursday, Henry Ludford the mail man; who had just left Braidwood driving a buggy with the mails, was stopped by two men mounted and armed with pistols or revolvers and mado drive into the bush. lie was then ordered to dismount and marched some distance from the vehicle and kept there a few minutes, orio of the men standing guard over him. Turning his head he thought that he saw a third man, but of this he is not quite positive. After a while he was allowed to return, mount the box, and drive on, being cautioned not to attempt to return to Braidwood. Thoro had been three bags in the vehicle-one each for Boro, Goul burn, and Sydney. He found that two were gone, and that the third had been cut open and its contents taken away, with the exception of a few government letters for Cooma and Kiandra. The rob bers did not attempt to rob Ludford himself; but while in the bush they searched his great coat which he had lef...
THE PERILS OF RAILWAY TRAVELLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 October 1864
TIIE .PERILS OF RAILWAY TRAVELLING. Close upon the heels of the IIckney atrocity, and the two railway outrages on foemnles, has come another fearful illustratiou of the perils of railway travolling under the existing system of passenger helplessness. aThis fresh case occurred on the Great Nothern line, in the usual night train to Edinburgh. About three weeks ago, five persons loft King's Cross station in one scompartment of one of the carriages. Just as the train was starting, the guard (against their wish) thrust in a sixth passenger-a tall, strong-built man, dressed as a sailor, and having ia wild and haggard look. The impression hie umade on his fellow-passon gors, at first glance, was that lie was intoxi cated ; but before long they had painful eason to believe that lie was suflfring from deliririt tremens. The train had hardly got upon its way when lhe started up, declared le had been robbed, and began to rush about the carriage, utterinhg the most fright fisl shrieks and impre...
SYDNEY SUMMARY. THURSDAY afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 October 1864
SYDNEY SUMMAARY. TiUrcsoDAY afternoon. Or course the opening of parliament has been the event of the week. It created much more than the usual amount of interest; and the hball of. the Legislative Council was crowded, the ladies muster ing in full force. The proceedings, so far as the actual opening of parliament was concerned, were of the usual character, and do not call for any particu lar notico. At the re-assembling of the lower chamber the galleries wore well filled with spectators; and the members themselves mustered pretty strongly, there being at one time no less than sixty-one present. The Empire gives the following list of their positions on the treasury, opposition, and cross benches, which agrees with my own observation: MINISTERIAL.

THE RAILWAY-CARRIAGE MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 October 1864
TIE RTAILWAY-CARIRtAGE MURDER. Among such oxceptional crimes may be mentioned the murder of Mr. Briggs, on the SNorth London Railway, particulars of which wero forwarded by tho last mail. No fresh disclosuros of importanco havo boon made. An adjourned inquest was hold on the 8th instant, when soveral witnesses, with whom Z Muller had been in company at frequent in tervals just provious to huis doparturo from England, woro examined respecting his movements, and the disposal of the plunder stolen from the murdered man. Two of the "r women, one of them being Mullor's land lady, fenced and equivocated a groat deal, as though resolved not to give any informa tion calculated to implicato the accused. The evidence, although purely circumstan tial, seems to most minds conclusive as to his guilt: but as there are somo few points in favour of his possiblo innoconce, we may ox poet thoe most to be made of theom at the .trial. An attempt will be made to establish San alibi. The German Legal Pro...
A VERY FOOLISH JURY. To the Editor of the Herald and Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 October 1864
A VERY FOOLISH JURY. 'To the Editor eof IhHe rald and Chronicle. Sin,-As an attempt has been made to show that the jury who triedl Sweenoy wore not so foolish as the learned judge stated they wore, may I be allowed to ask Whethor the jury were not sworn to give a true verdict accordin to the evidence ? Whether they 1did not find that Sweeney was the servant of Moran ? and whether MIoran's name was over mentioned in evidence during the whole couras of the trial ? If theose questions be answered in the only way I understand they can be answered, I fear the sting of tho judge's remarlks must remain. Yours obediently, OBSERVER.
THE NEWS BY THE MADRAS. LONDON, August 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 October 1864
THE NEWS BY THE MADRAS. (from the Orrpo,mdet of the MelThormne Argus.) LoNnox, August 26. 'Tn " gigantic goosoberry" season, so well known to the caterers for the press, has set in with extraordinary severity. An unpro fitable session has been closed by a royal speech which nobody cared to road. Peers and commoners have joyously cast off the parliamentary collar; royalty is taking its case; and the reprieved ministry, forgetful of its recent terrors, is chattering jauntily about the proud and prosperous condition of the country. A few weeooks ago, the excite moet and bustle which precede a general election woro perceptible throughout the land ; but all dread of such an event having been extinguished by the defeat of the oppo sition, the sounds of electoral conflict are dying away,, and constituencies and repro sentatives alike are giving themselves up to theo. blandislhmnts of the season. Politics have made way for pleasure; hard labour is exchanged for recreation and rest. Owing to...
MUMMELL POST-OFFICE. To the Editor of the Herald and Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 October 1864
l1UIMELL POST-OFFICE. To the Editor of the Herald and Chronicle. Smu,-Porceiving an article in the Goulburn Argue of Saturday last, the 15th instant, relative to an application for the establishment of a post-office at the Retreat Inn, IIummoll (which is much re quired, and would be a great boon to the in habitants of that locality, and the want of which has been long felt), I would beg to draw your attention to the statements made as to the Rockflold Inn being a more suitable site. The paragraph alluded to states that "a much larger number of persons would beo benefited by it." Now facts are stubborn things ; and it is well known that there are not four residents within two miles, or ton residents within throe miles of the Rockfield Inn, which is situated twelve miles from Goulourn, and beyond DMummoll altogether; whilst there are at least fifty inhabitants within three miles of the Retreat Inn, which is much more central and convenient. In establishing a post-office or any other p...

OSWALD CRAY. BYT M1?S. fIEINY w?OO, AUTHIOIR OF EAST LYNNE. CHIIAPTER X11T. WintN Dr. Daveonl entered his own home, dinner had been over some time. It was their custom to dine early on Sunday: and the general rule was, by Dr. Davenal's wish, not to keep meals waiting for him. Neal ad mitted him, and then came for orders. Should he bring up the dinner ? "Not the dinner," said Dr. Davonal "just a bit of somothing upon a plato. I am not hungry:- I had. a late breakfast at Thorn dyke.' lHas anybody been here or me ? " "No, sir. I think Mr. Cray took your patients. He has boon lirre- " "I know all about that," interrupted the doctor. He passed Neal, and went on to the garden parlour, a favourito room, of his daughter's. She was there alone, seated before the open glass doors. How peaceful it all looked! The green lawn stretching" out in front, the bright hues of the autumn flowers, the calm purity of the (ldark blue sky lying in the still ness of the day of rest. Sara Davenal had a Bible...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 October 1864
IT is usual on the opening of parliament for journalists to analyze the speech from the throne, or the Governor's speech, as the case may be. But although this document is regarded as the programme prepared by the ministry for their guidance during the session, it generally assumes so indefinite a character, and deals so ex clusively in generalities, that there has of late years been a growing conviction that criticism is useless. The speech just presented to parliament can scarcely be said to be an exception to this rule. It is lengthy enough ; but a great deal of it is devoted to retrospect; and the only real information it conveys is, that an appeal to the privy council is intended in the case of the church antid school lands, that some sort of measure for extending munici pal institutions is to be introduced, whereby the burthens of the people must be wonder fully increased, and that various bills on minor subjects will be laid before parlia ment. There is then little to critici...
