A SHADOWY STORY. A TALE OF THE IRISH REBELLION OF '98 CHAPTER VII. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 23 July 1883

A SHADOWY STORY.. A Tai" oF THE ISxit REBELLION OF '08 (From Chambers' Journal.) Carria VII. In less than the appointed.time Dickles arrived at the head of some two-and twenty men, looking sombre enough :in their grey overcoats; so without delay; and giving the command in a low tone, Westbury set off on his dreary patrol. The night was pitch dark ; it was long I past the hour when the. inhabitants of Boreen were accustomed to retire ; and so far.as the Lieutenant could judge, not a soul was. aware of the departure of the detachment. Yet a feeling hung about, him, a curious conviction that, in spite of the utter silence and darkness, such was not the case; and as he left he threw a last glance at the upper win dows of Boreen House, remembering the suspicious creaking he had heard half an hour earlier. Now, however, nothing was to be heard or seen; and in a few seconds the last cottage was lost in the gloom, and the men plodded slowly along the miry road. When five weary miles had bee...

GLENMAGGIE. July 21. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 23 July 1883

GLENMAGGIE (From a Correspondent) July 21 The long-vexed question of a road up the Macalister Valley now appears to be definitely settled. Mr. Riggall and a number of selectors accompanied Mr. Jones, shire engineer, when that gentleman was there a few days ago, going   up the valley with him, when all the crossings over the river and the different sidelings were carefully inspected. The engineer would commit himself to nothing definite until he returned and saw both roads, and judged   for himself. Before separating, however he informed us that he should reccommend the shire council to expend the Government grant on the main road, which would take in the sidelings and cross the river once at a place between Hickey's Creek and Glenmaggie.     The road at present used crosses the river some seven or eight times, and these crossings the engineer would recommend     being kept open until the   Gov...

HIS LAST COURT. Old Judge Grepson, a justice of the peace, was never known to smile. lHe came to Arkansas years ago, before the !! carpet • baggers began .their reckless sway, and year by year by the will of the voters, he held his place as nagis trate. The lawyers who practiced ini .his court never joked with him, because everyone soon learned that the old man never engaged in levity. Every morn ing, no matter how bad the weather msight be, the old man took his place behind the lar, which, with his own hands, he had made, and every r ovening.just at a certain time he closed his hooks and went home. No one eveorengaged him in private conversae-' tion, because he would talk to no one. t No one ever went to his home, a little c cottage among the trees in the city's c outskirts, because lihe had never shown a disposition to make welcome the visits t of those;who lived even in the imme diate vicinity. His office was not given I him through the influence of election eering, because he ne...
