SHOCKING ACCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 11 December 1874
SHOCKING ACCIDENTS. A series of accidents occurred in a couple of brick works in Brunswick re.- contly. The first happened to a ýouth named:Stewart, in the brickyard of Treno- veth Brothers, at Brunswick. He incau- tiously looked over the hopper of the pug-. mill when in full motion, and his head got jammed by the revolving beam, at the end of which a horse was attached. The animal was stopped instantly, but not be- fore the lad's jaws were broken, &nbsp; and it is reported his skull also. &nbsp; About the same time, at the works of the Hoffman's. Brick Company, a laborer named Pettett by some means slipped from his work, falling over forty feet on to loosened earth, which broke the fall con- siderably. In his case the collar bone and several ribs were broken, and he was sub- sequently removed to the Melbourne Hos- pital in great agony. &nbsp;
FLEMINGTON WESLEYAN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 18 December 1874
FLEMINGTON WESLEYAN CHURCI.. The anniversary of the Flemington Wesleya' church, was celebrated on Sin- day 0th, and continued on the following Tuesday. On Sunday two sermons were preached, one in the morning by the Rev. P. R. C. Ussher, and one in the evening by the Rlev. J. Dodehun. On Tuesday eventin a tea meeting was held in the State'S hbol. which. was followed by a/ public meeting held in the church. Mr., "Wilson occupied the chair, and after a few remarks called upon the Secretary to read the report, which was of a satisfac tory nature. The Rev. J. Merriman said they had reason to rejoice because they were not. over head and ears in debt.' It taxes every effort of the congre. gation to reduce debts in some churches, and sometimes they remain without the debt being cleared. We have been told that Christianity is not so powerful in the world as it was formerly, the church and pulpit are ejfte institutions, most unworthy things to what they used to be. There was a slight degree o...

IMPROVEMENTS IN NORTH CARLTON. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 18 December 1874
IMPROVEMENTS IN NORTH CARBLTON. TrNe understand it is the intention of Councillor Curtain to bring forward a resolution in the City Council shortly for a grant of five or six thousand pounds for street making in North Carlton. No doubt he will be warmly supported in his efforts by his fellow councillors in Carlton. The four thousand pounds granted at the instance of the same gentleman two years ago has done an immense amount of good, and no money could be better or more profitably expended. A number of creditable build ings have sprung up in the district along the line of the new made streets, from which the Council are now receiving a handsome revenue. This locality was previously only waste land, from which not a penny in the way of revenue was received. LRath downe, Station, Canning, together with the cross streets, Newry and Freeman, should be made at all events as far as Church street. This would give the district a great and much wanted push ahead, and gradually unite it to Ea...

MAr Dyanson pos sesses certificates from several scientific gen. tlemen who testify to its pleasant flavor, sparkling appearancc, and tonio properties.

MELBOURNE DIVORCE COURT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 18 December 1874
MELBOUIRNE DIVORCE COURT. The privileges attached to a divorce at one time could only be purchased by those who were in prosperous circumstances, but in this colony the class of persons that seek the protection of tbis particular branch of the Supreme Court is not one that holds a high position in the social scale. In one case heard recently the peti. tioner admitted that he had been im prisoned in New South Wales for cattle-stealing, and in the following case. the petitioner made a similar admission, adding, to increase the interest attached to the parties, that his wife, from whom he sought to bhe divorced, had been tried- for child murder, but was fortunately for her self acquitted.

North Melbourne Advertiser, AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18TH, 1874. THE MONGATAPAU MURDERER. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 18 December 1874
AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18Th, 1874. THE MONGATAPAU MUR. DERER. That notorious scoundrel, Sullivan, has had the audacity to visit his old haunts, and as a matter of course he has again fallen in to the clutches of the law. A full bench of magistrates decided that he is to be sent back to New Zealand, the scene of his former exploits. What the New Zealand authorities will do with him it is impossible to predict, but we fancy the Gordian knot would be quickly cut if he was landed at Grey mouth or IIokitiki, and left to the tender mercies of the diggers in those loca lities who are conversant with the villian ous part played by this wretch in con nection with the cold-blooded atrocities of his fellow ruffians in crime. A long rope and a short shrift would be the immediate consequence of Sullivan being permitted to wander at large on the west coast of New Zealand.

If on nootherthan sanitary grounds the Council have acted judicious I? in this case, inasmuch as the drain w hich has been such an eyesore for years past, will be removed, and a dangerous nuisance will thus be got rid of.
