THE MANSFIELD OUTRAGES. STARTLING RUMOURS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 31 May 1879

THE MANSFIELD OUTRAGES. Startling Rumours. The Benalla correspondent of the Mel bourne Evening Herald, telegraphing from that place on Friday last states as follows : — A rumour of a startling character has been current here in official circles during the past day or two, to the effect that a discovery of a remarkable nature, in connection with the threatening letters received by Mr. Monk, of the Wombat, has been made. The name of an up-country journalist is men tioned as having something to do with ferreting out the facts. A short time since, tbat is, just after the last threatening letter was received by Monk, a leading article was written by the journalist in question, in which it was averred that the writer had grave suspicions as to the reliability of the source trom which the letters came. It was further stated that, from the style of one of the letters, the writer of the article referred to was convinced of the identity of the letter, aud that if an opportunity offered of ins...

THE COUNTRY POSTMASTER. WAITING FOR THE COACH. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 31 May 1879

THE COUNTRY POSTMASTER. Waiting fob the Coach. In blackest night tbe gum trees stand, With frost wick crusted, one and all ; Silence profound enwrapB the land ; So still I you hear the dry leaves fall ; The stables loom up weird and strange, The horses champing in their stalls : A solitary footstep foils Without a stop or chance. He only said, ' My life is dreary ; It cometh not,' he said. He said, ' I am aweary, aweary ; , I'd like to go to bed.' The smoke-wreath from his cutty pipe Enwraps the rafters overhead — A vap'rous and a fitting type Of aspirations dead. The rapid flitting of tbe bats, The gloomy darkness of the sky. He glanced out with a smothered sigh Across the foggy, gloomy flats. He only said, 'The night is dreary ; It cometh not,' be said. He said, ' I am aweary, aweary ; I wish I were in bed.' Upon the middle of tbe night, He thought he heard a rooster crow. The cock sung out an hour ere light, From willow at the creek below. Monotonous, uo hope of change ; Almost a...

A LAPLAND DWELLING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 31 May 1879

A LAPLAND DWELLING. Leaving the fold, we turn towards the human habitations. These consist of two or three residences, and a kind of half-roofed out-house in which things not in use are stored. This last is simply an erection of branches of trees with a covering thrown loosely over it. But the ' dwellings are much more substantial. These are not tents, but huts, built in circular form of poles and turf, of very substantial construction, which probably last for years, as the Laps return to the same glen every summer. The entrance is not very low nor small ; we stoop, but do not crawl in. The roof rises from the walls to the centre, on which is a hole for the smoke to work its way out, which it does leisurely enough when it gets tired of lingering about the walls. The fire is in the middle of the hut, and when we enter we find an old Lap crone cooking something ; nothing dia bolical or mystical, but good honfest coffee, which diffuses a fragrant and not unnecessary perfume throughout ...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 31 May 1879

The hustling which the English cricketers experienced in front of tlie pavilion on that now historical Satur day, was nothing compared to the barbed shafts which indignant scribes are hurling with deadliest purpose at that unfortunate target — Lord Harris's letter. The critics, one and all — from tlie uiudly-reproacbtul one, who sheds tears over Lord Harris's disregard of the convenances, to the peppery gentle man who ' slates' his lordship rouudly — agree in the opinion that the colony has been maligned. Much as we may admire the patriotic spirit which sacri fices so much ink and forcible English in the discussion, we fail to see the necessity for the virtuous indignation. If the colonists have been as shamefully I traduced as alleged, the obviousness of the libel will prove au ample . answer. | Sensible people scorn lies, and don't step out of their way to argue the point with the liar. But, so far, the correct ness of Lord Harris's statements has not been directly challenged. Peo...
