BUSHRANGING IN VICTORIA. TWO CONSTABLES SHOT AND A SERGEANT MISSING. MANSFIELD, Monday night. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 1 November 1878

BUSHRANGING IN VICTORIA. TWO CONSTABLES SHOT AND A SERGEANT MISSING. [FROM THE "ARGUS" REPORTER]   MANSFIELD, Monday night. The police heard privately that the Kellys, for whom they had been looking for months past, were in the ranges at the head of the King River. The Kelly family live at Greta, fifty miles from here, and the brothers were understood to be in con- cealment where Power once hid himself. Two parties of police were secretly de- spatched last week—one from Greta, con- sisting of five men, with Sergeant Steele in command, and one of four from Mans- field. Though the movements of the Mansfield party were supposed to be dark, the object of the expedition leaked out, and, no doubt, was rapidly telegraphed across the bush to Edward Kelly. The ranges are infested with a brotherhood of Kellys, Lloyds, Quinns, &c. They occupy land amongst the hills, and ostensibly carry on the operations of cattle-breeders. From the account given by Constable M'Intyre, it ...

THE GOLD ROBBERY OF THE ROYAL MAIL STEAMER AVOCA. ARREST OF THE ROBBER. MELBOURNE, MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 1 November 1878

THE GOLD ROBBERY OF THE ROYAL MAIL STEAMER AVOCA.   ARREST OF THE ROBBER.   MELBOURNE, MONDAY. In August last the mail steamer Avoca was robbed here of 5000 sovereigns, during transhipment to the mail steamer China,   at Point de Galle. A number of officers belonging to the steam being suspected, were discharged. Several other persons   were also suspected, and amongst them was a Norwegian named Martin Wilbery, who married a housemaid at the Port Sea Hotel, Williamstown. Wilbery, shortly after the occurrence, procured a large open boat and putting in the boat a tool chest and provisions, sailed eastward along the coast   to the Darwin River, at the corner inlet of which he selected one hundred and twenty acres of land, upon which he built a wattle and ... hut, where he lived with his wife and child. Inspector Secretan and Detective, Mackay went last week to Wilbery's selection ... meeting him on the road, they arrested...

SWAN HILL. [PROM OiU owN CORRESPbsOxsuL] NoiV. , -1878. . WVe are just now enicompassed with a series. of exciting topics, foremost amongst which is our bazaar, to be held on the i3th, s4th,'and 15th, closing with a concert on Saturday; the x6th. The committee have at present their hands full, receiving and opening up the various contributions, and it bids fair to equal, if not eclipse, the Paris Exhibition. The local manufacture of goods seems to embrace everything both useful and ornamental, the minds of the younger portion of the. lady community evidently running on dolls. Whether there is anything analogous in this it behoveth not your correspondent to sry,. but one and all seem working with a will to make it a success. The match with the Kerang United Cricket Club on the 9th is causing also an amount of interest, which is some what uniusual in this generally 'quiet township.

MAN KILLED AT THE KYNETON RAILWAY STATION. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 8 November 1878

,ItAN KiLLED AT TIIE KYNETON RAILWAAY STATION. A frightful accident happened at the crossing at the Kyncton railway station on Monday, about a quarter past six o'clock, which caused the death of an old resident of the district, named Patrick Connell. Deceased with another man was watching the passenger train from .Mel bourne, and did net notice or hear in any way the goods train coming from the op posite direction. As soon as deceased saw the passenger train pass safely, he stepped on to the line, and was then right in front of the engine of the goods train. He Was immediately knocked down, and carried some 100 yards or so before the train was stopped. Deceased was regularly cut in Ipieces. His brains were scattered all over the line, his liver was found near the signal box; and there was a leg here, and an arm there. In fact the details are too sickening to dwell upon. The remains were gathered up by Constable Steel and others, placed upon a stretcher, decently covered over with a ...

In my last I told your readers that the weather appeared to. have cleared up. So far Sfrom this being the case, we have had rain almost continuously the whole of the week ; aid my last letter had hardly left here when we had one of. the grandeststorms which I can remember. Peals of thvnaer, reverberating among. the hills here, followed in quick suc cession by blinding lightning flashes; the howling of the wind, the beating of the rain, and,in the forest, the crash of falling timber, all combined to form the magnitude and majesty of a storm which, as I said, I cannot remember to have seen surpassed. It was just such a night when a few generations back would have asserted of thunder bolts, of screaming witches riding triumphantly, the ruling spirits of the storm, of eldritch sights and sounds, to the confusion and terror of all cre dulous mortals. Nay, so much was...
