A BEARDIE IN TROUBLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 30 April 1876

A BEARDIE IN TROUBLE As one of the warders at the Pentridge Stockade was searching the yard where the "lifers" and men of long sentences are em- ployed at labor, the other day, he found some trifling articles buried in the ground, which might have passed unnoticed had it not been for a letter which was carefully concealed in a bottle; and addressed to Her Most Gracious Majesty Queen Victoria. It appears that the document was written by a prisoner named Hugs, who is undergoing a life sentence for a grave offence. Since the time Hugs arrived at Pentridge he has given a considerable amount of trouble to the authorities by misconducting himself on several occasions, and constantly applying for some special favor contrary to the rules of the establishment.

iJIURDER BY A POLICE INSPECTOR. We recently published a telegram respect ing a deed of great cruelty practised by an officer named Wheeler, in charge of a de tachment of the Queensland native police, on an aboriginal lad named Jemmy. The case is reported at length in the Copperfield Miner. The principal witness was Thomas Baker, a constable stationed at the Bel yando, and from his testimony we take the following :-I was at the Belyando police camp on 11th March last. I saw a strange black boy in the camp. He was taken from the blacks' quarters to the police barracks by the native troopers at half-past nine p.m. I accompanied them to the barracks. The boy had no clothing on, but had handcuffs on his legs. Saw Mr. Wheeler assist the native troopers to remove him. They took him to the barracks, and put another pair of handcuffs on his hands. They passed a strap through his handcuffs, and from them to the rafters outside the barracks under the verandah. They let him drop on the ground b...

TIlE MURDERER SULLIVAN. The Wedderburn correspondent of the Bendigo Advertiser writes :-About ten o'clock on Monday morning Sullivan, the perpetrator of so many atrocities, appeared in our midst. How, or at what time, lie left Melbourne is not known here. He came via Sandhurst to Inglewood, and escaped recognition in that town. About daybreak, when the Wedderburn and Inglewood coach, on its journey to the former town, had arrived at a part of the road situate about four miles from Inglewood, the coachman observed a fire, and concluded that someone was camped there. As the coach approached a man, habited in an overcoat and cap, hailed him and took a seat in the coach, which contained two other passengers. This man was Sullivan, but he retained a profound silence, and having arrived at a place about three miles from \Wedderburn, dismounted, taking with him a parcel. He then, no doubt, changed his dress, and made his toilet as well as the convenience of the bush would admit. In lieu of...
