Black and White Swans. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 2 June 1882
Black-and White 1Swans, We were always under the impressito that swans were _the happy1 possessors of a mild, kind nature, but a scene witnessed by us on Saturday afternoon, just-opposite the old zoological house at the Garden, `'has considerably altered our,view in. this respect';andiwe would cautionpersons in.chargelof veryyoung children.not to allow them to; have too close an intimacy..with these savage birds.

The Irish in Victoria and Home Rule. According to the "Advocate," an address from "The Irish people in Victoria and their descendants to the people of Ireland" was forwarded by the last mail to the or-rd ?iayor of Dublin, Mr. Charles Dawson, M.P. The ad dress, which is signed by five members of the Assembly, and the Chairman and sece qry pf the "%Pptenam C ,mittg, is a most remarkable document. After referring to the Imperial Legislature as an alien Parliament, and declaring that Irishmen are precluded from the oppor tunity of exercising-in- their native land the high qualities which their descend ants in Victoria are displaying, the signers of the address give a pledge "that we shall adhere to you as brothers throgOtal Or di$bfis t alspce. forward, as in, t p ?at,h we shall most cordially give.'d ll t l sympathy land substantial assistance to which you are entitled, and which it is our duty to render."

Chinaman Shot by His Wife. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 2 June 1882
Chinaman Shot by His Wife. At the inquest on the body of the Chinaman murdered by his wife at Meroo, N. S. Wales, the jury returned a verdict of guilty, and the widow was committed for trial for wilful murder. The woman alleges that her husband, the Chinaman, was on the point of cutting her mother's throat when she seized her father's gun and fired it at her husband, who fell dead. Her mother gave similar evidence, but the sister of the accused deposed that she and her mother were outside the hut when the shot was fired. The evidence of Dr. Rowley also pointed to the im- probability of the statement made for the defence. The Chinaman's corpse was partially burned during Saturday night, in the new hut built by Davis, the father of the accused. The hut was burned to the ground. It is supposed to have been set on fire by Chinamen, in order to avenge the death of their countryman.
A Horrible Crime. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 2 June 1882
A Horrible Crime. On opening the door of the countryy schoolhouse situated one mile north of Salem, Adams County, Richmond State, February 28, some children dis- covered the teacher, Miss Emma Numbers, lying on the floor with one arm cut off, her tongue cut out, and her neck pinned to the flooring with a large dirk knife. A subsequent ex- amination showed that she had been brutally assaulted after a desperate struggle, and that she had been stabbed to death with a knife. Before leaving, her assailants (as it is believed one man did not commit the deed alone) had cut her tongue out to make sure that she would not recover and divulge their names. After the last blow the knife was left in her neck, the point passing nearly through the boards in the floor. A search was at once instituted, but the perpetrators have not yet been dis- covered. The schoolhouse stands on a low, swampy piece of land which di- vides the waters of the St. Lawrence from those of the Mississippi, one pas- sing of...
