Not far off was another tent, very smoke-begrimed, in front of which-a great blazing pine-log emitted an intense warmth- very much to the enjoyment of the swarthy Hindoostanees lio sat cow?ring round the fiie on their haunches, looking like gigantic frogs about to perform self-cremation.

THE EXECUTION OF HOGAN, THE FRATRICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 21 June 1879

THE EXECUTION OF HOGAN, THE FRATRICIDE.   On Monday morning Thomas Hogan- who at the last sittings of the Beech- worth Court of Assize was put upon his trial for the deliberate murder, by shooting, of his brother James at Bandalong, at the junction of the Ovens and Murray rivers, on the 15th of February last and found guilty, when he was sentenced to death by His Honor Mr. Justice Stephen, at the hands of the common hangman within   the precincts of the Beechworth Gaol- expatiated his unnatural crime on the scaffold at the last-named place. The executioner, Gately, who at the present time is undergoing a sentence in the Melbourne Gaol, arrived to perform his wretched, though of course necessary, functions, from thence in Beechworth on Saturday afternoon, in charge of a warder; and we were, while surprised much disgusted at the sight of so many persons assembled on the railway- station platform, awaiting his arrival.

The contest is, however; not. quite so' enthusiastically carried on as were those of a few years back, when protection versus freetrade was. the .all-absorbing topic; when squibs, lampoons, and flashing articles were freely bandied about on all sides. The only question of deep vital im portance at the present time is the Reform of the Upper House, but as'all parties seem agreed upon this matter the contest. is. narrowed down to a question of men.

CORRESPONDENCE. PIG NUISANCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 28 June 1879

CORRESPONDENCE. PIG NUISANCE. TO THS EDrrOE or THL xEsBCUT. Sir.--I am compelled, with your permis slon, to give through, the columns of your widely-circulated weekly journal, a hint to the Inspector of Nuisances for Collingwood, of the wholesale way in which pigs are kept within the bounds of the said city, which I always understood was contrary to the laws of a city. I must say in many cases that the sale of property in, Clifton hill is greatly retarded in consequence of the above nuisance. If the proprietors of these wholesale piggeries would kep the swine ,withistheir o?n property it would not leave so much room to cry. out about them'~ but they are allowed to roam all over the neighborhood, and I am prepared to prove that they do a great amount of dam age to property, such as breaking fences, etc. As Clifton-hill is likely to be a rising neighborhood, I would suggest to the In spector of Nuisances (whoever he may be) to give his early attention to the above; otherwise I shall b...

ALLEGED DISTRESS IN COLLINGWOOD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 28 June 1879

ALLEGED DISTRESS IN COL LINGIWOOD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MoECURY. Sra,-Again the cry has been raised "Destitution in Collingwood," and distant .readers are led to believe that dire misery. starvation, and death is prevalent to a great extent in this unfortunate locate of the working man. In the face of this we have just had a Savings' Bank opened, and the business done, I am informed by reports in the papers, is beyond the most sanguine expectations. Now, Sir, that the people are poor, that some are out of work, and con sequently rather hard up, I will not doubt. But that there is the amount of destinttion that some would make it appear, Ido doubt. More than twenty-five years' residence here enables me to speak with some experience, as there is not, I believe, a street but what I am acquainted with, and, if disposed, I could at any time (even the most prosper ous) point out cases of destitution. Ishould be sorry to undervalue the motives of those good men like Dr. Singleton, whose la...

THE TWO LOVING SISTERS. AN APOLOGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 28 June 1879

THE .,TWO .LOVING SISTERS. Ar APOLOGUY. 4 Br CvmSOR CAPITrL and Labour are two sisters that should love each other dearly, and never struggle for supremacy the one over the other. So say Political Economists, and of course they know all about the family arrangements of these two fond and in dissolubly con nected relatives. Every teacher of social economies is never wearied of averring, that Capital and Labour are mutually dependant; that they move on terms of perfect equality ; that they have perfectly well defined rights, which each isjustified in maintaining ; that neither can exist un cared for by the other; that Capital without the aid of Labour is unpro ductive, and would vanish into nothing ness, and that Labour unassisted by her friend and sister Capital works always at the greatest disadvantage. This being admitted, it necessarily follows, that Capital and Labour should ever walktogether hand linked in hand, and arms encircling each other's waist, like the truest, the most d...
