THE LAY OF THE FAY OF THE RIVER OF YEA. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 14 June 1879

THE T'AY* OF THE FAY OF THE p. RIVER OF YEA. The evening was calm, and the cool gentle breeze Was tanning the tops of the old wattle trees, When a vision approached me in gorgeous array, Enquiring the road to the River of Yea. Her figure was handsome, her mantle was green, All trimmed with now red tape of beautitul sheen, And bunches of red tape appeared here and there, From the hem of her robe to the tie of her Shair.

INHUMAN CONDUCT OF A FATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 14 June 1879

INHUMAN CONDUCT OF A FATHER. A sad case of brutality came under the notice of the Prahran Bench on Monday when a cabman named Alfred Woods appeared to anewet a charge of violently assaulting his daughter, Elizabeth Woods, a girl about fifteen years of age. From the evidence it would appear that early on Saturday morning the girl called at the Prhran Police-station, and complained that her father had beaten her. The unfortunate girl was found to be in a very weak state, and suffering from a number of bruises and cats, from which blood had flowed freely. The girl's statement went to show that about 4 o'clock on Saturday morn ing her father went home drunk, and pulled her out of bed. The unnatural fellow then proceeded to kick the girl in such a manner that she endeavoured to get away from her cowardly assailant by creeping underneath the bed. Woods then pulled her out, and qb tained a piece of wood, with which he boat her ig amost shameful way. Constable Charles de* popse to having vi...

3rnintlIn & pia sTandard PDBL?flED ZEYEY SATURDAY SATURDAY, 14Ta JUNE. COMPLAINTS from time to time reach us with reference to the state of the roads, bridges, and culverts in various parts of the shire, and enquiries are made as to the reason why nothing has for months past been done in the matter. We can therefore state for the s information of those who feel themselves C neglected that the funds have unfortu nately not been forthcoming, in fact there has been no money wherewith to I execute the most urgelt works,.and the Council have very. roperly declined to increase their leavy overdral?i at the r bank, and have idopted a-" policy of retrenchment; but at thd eatnmeitre we may state that in the course of a few t months suffisient funds will be in hand to justify the calling for tenders for c those works already promised, and others also that may be found necessary.

THE RICHMOND MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 14 June 1879

THE RICHMOND MURDER. ~-4- (Fnox ?umn MORNING ADVnRTI ERi, APRIL 17.) A third empty black bag was picked up in the Thames, near Hammorsmlth-bridge, on Tuesday evening. Tih Porters were again sent for to the police-station to sec if they could indentify it, but this they also said was not the bag they carried. In the course of an interview with Church, he expressed his conviction that his evidenceo would help to eludid the mystery. In reply to questions put, he said he fully believed in the story of the missing black bag, and lie inclined to the opinion that the woman Webster must have had an accomplice or accomplices in the murder and in tile mutilation, and that there had been an attempt to make him the victim of other people's crimes. Amongst some of the officials engaged in the case there is a growing conviction expressed that the female prisoner had no accomplice either in the murder or mutilation. The police, however, state that they are greatly baffled by the inability of perso...

Although the pass is just now especially danerous, it. is con tinually traversed by Italian workmen on their way north in search of employmeont. Last Friday there was an unusually heavy snowfall on the Valaslan Alps, so that the Simplon.road had become impracticable for carriages, and even for mules, and rommuni ntion btween Bugue and Domo D'Ossola was perilous and difficult. Nevertheless, a band of Italian workmen attempted the passage. Towards 2 o'clock in the afternoon they arrived at Refuge No 6, but scarcely had the first of them emerged from the great gallery when they were overwhelmed by an immense avalanehe. The others, warned by the thunder of its I descent ran bark into the gallery, where they remained un...

lerreupuubeure. WIe do not hold ourseleve responsible bfr the oplnIons elprescd by our corrcwondiets.] (To the Edstor of the Standard). Stn,-In your report of the closed roads commission, I observe that Mr F. Coster, ex-councillor, and now solicitor to that body, made some very strange remarks, " presuming of course that your report was a correct one." I road in the ovioonce given by him that it was his opinion that the roads should be taken outof the control of the council because they would not act honestly, and that a certain road, leading to the U.T. Creek could not be opened becauseo there were so many in the swim, and that the said road had only been opened four years. Now, sir, allow me to ask one or two questions. How is it that when Mr Coster was a councillor lie took no interest whatever in this matter ? for it is a fact that this very road was closed during the whole four years heo was a member, and thero fore it seems strange that he should only now awake from his sleep....

VINCENT BOSTOCK; OR LIGHTS AND SHADES OF CHARACTER. INTRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 14 June 1879

VINCENT BOSTOCK; OR LIGHTS AND SHADES OF CHARACTER. INTRODUCTION.         This simple story does not pretend to any merit, either for particular interest or for originality of expression. If any take it up expecting some thrilling novel-scenes, hair-breath, 'escapes, plenty of love, innocent or otherwise. and a life of most extraordinary events, I would warn him to leave the tale unrend. I know it is the fashion for heros whether in three volume novels, yellow-backs or penny miscellany, to pass through the most complicated series of adventures, and to take part in the greatest reformations and most sweet- ing changes in the world's history; but I am contented to relate what occurred in a life of mediocre interest, as it occurred, and mainly in its bearing on character and development of mind. My dramatic persona are called from personal experience, and I have endea voured to depict their several habits, strong points, and peccadill...

EXECUTION OF HOGAN. BEECHWORTH, Monday. The execution of Thomas Hogan, for the murder of his brother at Yarrawonga, took place this morning at 9 o'clock, The prisoner, who had been spiritually attended since he was condemned, by Father O'Connor, was very calm, and walked on to the drop with a firm step. When asked by the sheriff if he had anything to any, he replied "No." Gately   then drew the bolt, and the body fell a life- less corpse. It was left hanging for two hours and was then cut down, and the customary inquest was held upon the remains, when the usual evidence was adduced, and a verdict of "death by hanging" was returned. The body was buried in quicklime, in the same grave as that containing the remains of the murderers Smith and Brady, who were executed here five years ago. The arrangements were most complete. Gately left this afternoon for Melbourne, accompanied by a warder.

SINGULAR PROSECUTION: A singular and very ncausal case occupied the attention of the Ballarat City Police Bench on Tuesday, in which Mr E. J. Lewis, solicItor, of that city, was charged, on summons, under the 112th section of the Criminal Law and Practice Act, with having demanded money by letter, with monaces. Mr Chomley pro socuted for tile Crown, assisted by Mr Normoyle. Mr Lewis conducted his own defence, the Blench having refused a postpone ment of the hearing to enable his counsel to attend. From the evidence it appeared that in the month of October last, a ship called the North American arrived in IIobson's Bay, with 15 passengers, having left London in the preceding July. On board that ship were two possengers named respectively William Williams and Cambrian Sands. Shortly after his arrival, Sands got employment with the defendant Lewis in somelcapacity. After he had been there some time, Lewis asked him what sort of a crowd the passengers by the North American were. lie rep...

YEA [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 21 June 1879

YEA (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT). The ordinary monthly meeting of the Shire Council was held on Saturday 7th inst., but very little business was transacted, and owing to the low state of the finances no works were let but what were absolutely required,--repairs on the Tallatook road, &c. Mr T. F Roberts wte appointed valuator for the ensuing year at the reasonable salary of twenty-five pounds; and an offer was made by Mr Thomas Roberts of Moles. worth to sell to the Council the land on which the Molesworth Bridge is erected for the moderate sum of two hundred pounds, with the proviso that each party pay their own law costs. I need Poarcely add that the said Council declined the offer with thanks, as owing to the fluctuating state of the land market, they would be sorcely justified in paying two hundred pounds for two acres of an unreclatmed swamp. Notwithstanding the poor harvest returns of last year, the farmers in this neighborhood appear to be sanguine that present appear...
