LATEST NEWS BY THE MAIL. DAN SMITH'S MAN OF PORTSEA. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884

LATEST NEWS BY THE MAIL. v DAN SMITH'S MAN OF PORTSEA. . Whilst the whole community is in a state of agitation over Federal Conventions, Franco-Chinese wars, the Land Bill, Small- pox, and Beach's victory over Hanlan weare beginning to think the end of the world is not far off. Under these distress- ing'circumstances, it is something to learn from- Lloyd that one .person retains un- abated confidence in .obtaining all that is required ! This philosophic and hopeful view of affairs was expressed on Saturday afternoon-not by the Royal liady, in '/honour of whose coronation the day was -made memorable by the firing of salutes and ringing of church bells-but by a con :.vict in Portsea prison. On being visited by ^Messrs. Pearce and Wyatt, the Claimant said he did not expect to be released until .'the 15th of November.' When he regained this liberty he did not mean to be made a . show, of, adding that " the very fact that his case had been kept alive in the public mind for so many years,...

"He could spare them," he said " and besides a good service had been done him." Next day the poor woman and two of her children were dead. The salmon was putrid. A verdict of accidental death was returned. À minute portion ot the fish given to rats killed them in a few minutes.

LYNCH LAW IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884

LYNCH LAW IN ENGLAND. Lord Sackville bas bad some experience of lynch law as administered by the worthy. . .commoners; of Kent. The noble lord had fenced over a roadway on Kimble Park, long in rise by the public. A meeting was held, and a justice of the peace presided, and a plucky old buck he turned ont to be ? in .the people's interest. He . said that in Jus capacity, as a magistrate it was not for :him to advise them what to do, but he might say ' that he would not have the Rightest hesitation if he wanted to use the road to remove the obstruction, and leave the materials at the front door of the mansion with his compliments. He believed that it was the" first, effort in "the kingdom to close a bridle-path. Mr. Yeates, the hon. .secretary, said, that he had sent Lord, Sackville a letter asking him to-remove the obstruction, and his lordship had replied through his solicitors, -{hat he was within his undoubted, rights to close the bridle- path and had no intention whatever to remo...

A BANK SWINDLER ARRESTED. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884

A BANK SWINDLER ARRESTED. Gerald T. Tully secured a position as clerk in the Preston Banking Company's office in Preston, England, nearly twenty eight years ago, and became sub-manager. He held that position for sixteen years, when .the manager died, and he endeavoured to secure the vacant position. Another man was appointed, however, and Tully disappeared, and also £17,000 of the company's funds. His peculations amounted to upwards of £20,000, and although his salary was £1200, he left little for the support of his wife and two children. Photographs were sent to America and a reward was offered, but the man was not found. The last week in Juno Joseph Tóulmin, a stockholder in the company, and a magistrate in Preston, arrived in New York with his wife. -One night they were walking in Fourth avenue, when they met a man whom they recognised as Tully. They waited until they met an officer, and then spoke to Tully, and received an in- dignant denial that he wa3 the man. The stranger sai...

CONSPIRACY AGAINST THE POPE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884

CONSPIRACY AGAINST THE POPE. À London despatch says that recently a letter was received at the Vatican, from a source entitled to credence, stating that a well arranged plan to attack the Papal residence by dynamite had been matured and would be carried out at the first favorable opportunity, the conspirators aiming at the life of His Holiness, in consequence of which the guards have been doubled. Cardinal Coward and some of his ' colleagues treat the dynamite threats with ridicule. The pope insisted upon being made acquainted with the reason for its formation. "When told, he said: " I am not alarmed with any personal fear, but at the thought that this dynamite contagion has reached Borne." The Bornait clergy do not hesitate to say that they, attribute these dynamite threats against the Pope to the Freemasons, .who, they declare, are at present furious against the Vatican because of its recent warfare upon them.

The Unlearned Profession. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884

The Unlearned Profession. There is never a case of small-pox, or measles, or cholera, but some medico will say its something else. We don't want to believe that Dr. McKellar   is right in saying that our small-pox visitation is really small-pox. But, for all that, we want the truth, and we are " full-up " of the differences of doctors. Dr. Eichler is as good a man as the other. It was the same in Melbourne, and Dr. Youl had to " go." It would be absurd for us to offer an opinion, but what raises our wrath is, that, while the lives of our children are at stake, and while we, ourselves farmers, architects, contractors, or what not, get immediate " sack " and ridicule if we do not know the rudiments of business, it is quite open for a doctor to show the grossest ignorance of the symp- toms of a common disease, and yet hold his own over the heads of schoolmasters, journalists, and skilled workmen ! B ecause he belongs to a LEARNED profession, save the mark, it is a respecta...

Wit & Humour. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884

Wit & Humour. ;A. G. Taylor may be very deep, but bia bitterest opponent cannot stand alongside of bim and say a 75-inch man is unfathomable. "And this, sir, is the bath-room," said the lodging house-keeper, showing a back block man over the place. " What's that for ?" he asked. It was growing late, and the chief printer aqain telephoned down, "Just a little Wit and Humor, please." We called back " Can't do it, sonny. Put yourself in." A Sydney reporter fell from a tram car and smashed his head, with the result that" his intellect has been so affected that his frienus are anxious about him. He talks quite rationally. Dan O'Connor is reported to have said that at one time he regarded Burke as a great orator, but after having listened to himself on the Land Bill he would-well, he would say no more. "Read over these verses and tell me what they're like," said the editor, tossing them over to the sub-editor. "Well," said the sub,' slowly, " well, I can't say they're bad." " Then...

Small-Pox at Last. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884

Small-Pox at Lssfe. The most startling thing for the week has been the outbreak of small-pox in Lower George-street, Sydney/ Dr. Mackellar and assistants have taken the most vigorous measures, and the patients have been removed to the Quarantine Station. All the inmates of the Orient Hotel where the outbreak occurred have been re-vaccinated. The inmates of the hotel are not allowed to leave or venture out on any pretence whatever, and large posters are placed on either side of the entrance warning per- sons of the danger they must experience by going in. A large proportion of N. S. Wales children are nnvaccinated. We do not wish to enter into the dis- cussion of the utility of vaccination, but merely give a fact within our own knowledge. An out- break of small-pox occurred in England. A little girl who was liked by the whole school was the first attacked, and was visited frequently by other children The rules about such matters were not so strict then as now. Of a family of twelve b...

A QUEEN OF THE SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884

A QUEEN OF THE SOUTH. R MARX was fair-haired and comely, and came in the good ship Abergeldie, to seek new realms and bette; wages in oar far fair Sooth. It was in Sussex where she first opened her lungs, and lifted up her voice to announce that A woman child was born. On that day, the corn was waving wide and golden in the sunshine ; the poppy and the haw- thorn bloom forgot not to waft their sweetest odours through the open lattice, gladdening the pale mother, and awakening the rudiments of Bmell in the new-born infant. T e oxen lowed their tune- ful horn in the meadow ; the lark sprang np and twittered joy to find he was where he could keep his feet, dry ; and the happy father was over early to " The Pig with Six Legs" to keep his mouth wet over the joyful occasion. The merry milkmaid was out like Rebekah, with her pail upon her shoulder, never to be set down till she reached the nearest stile, where she was wont to discourse of love's young dream, and forget the time, while the ...

ANOTHER ATTACK BY BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884

ANOTHER ATTACK BY BLACKS. THIS week further news of black out- rages lias come to town, and fully con- firms the growing opinion that the state of disorder and lawlessness among the aboriginals is not confined solely to one place. The latest occurrence is that at Argument Flat, where, however, the same efficient action did not roark the doings of the dusky savages as at the Daly River, and they consequently only came off second best. From a reliable informant we learn that the attack tran- spired as follows : It appears that three men named Bridson, Stanley, and Mackloff were camped with their wagons at Argument Flat on the 26th instant, and were visited by five natives (three men and two lubras) among whom were two known by the names of Louis and Neddy. They had been supplied with rations at the wagons on the night previous, and made several enquiries then about Stanley, they seeming to think that he was a policeman. But they did not show any signs of hostility to the whites, who h...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 3 October 1884

MISCELLANEOUS. Speaking of the Salvation Army, the solid SATURDAY REVIEW says :-" To oar mind. this prolonged toleration folly entitles ns to insist that the pretence or even the reality of religious enthu- siasm shall no longer be allowed to protect a common nuisance." The Jews in Russia are suffering worse horrors from p¿rsecotion than they did in the Middle Âges. Intelligence received from Nishni Novgorod, Russia, states that a popular outbreak against the Jews occurred there on the 19th June A rumour was propagated in the suburb of Kuna wino to the effect that the.Jews had kidnapped a Christian child and taken it to their synagogue. The mob broke into the synagogue, killed nine Jews, and ill-treated many more. At the meeting of nationalists at Mullingar June 9, Mr. Joseph M. Kenny, member of Parliament for Ennis, made a speech, in which. he said that the Irish members ran the same risk as : the English from dynamite explosions. For instance ' he said that Messrs. Sexton and Redm...
