"Condemned to death: To be hanged I No hope of reprieve or com mutation of sentence I I may as well 'make a clean breast of it I And so the double-dyed violator and murderer of what was really an infant, tells in brief words the story of hiscrime, and bows his head to the universal condemnation that such a crime entails on.himself in its death penalty, and on all his family and friends in its life-long penalty of shame and disgrace. With the princi pal all sympathy was dead, but for the hapless wife and children, there are no limits to the deep feeling which rends the hearts of wives and families. Oh ! what a downfall of the husband and father! The Lares and Penates,. the household Gods, the symbols of honor and shelter from harm, turned into the direst images of grossest Wrong and cruelest dishonor, and the fell blow at the household struck- by the parent's hands.

Collins proved that we were right in the opinion expressed by us last week that we were sure the people were determined to roll up and give that gentleman a bumper huuse. Every part of the Royal Hall was filled, and there were perhaps more people in the front seats than at any entertainment held in the borough for some timp. It did one's heart good to see such a crowd of people, good humorpd and orderly, met together for the purpose of doing honor to one who has so often convulsed the audience with his comicalities, and who, by his genial manners, has made so manyfriends in the borough, and in fact wherever he has performed. On the posters it was announced that the Footscray Fire Brigade were to give a torchlight procession, but at the last moment they sent up word to Mr. Young declining to march unless there was aband to accoumpany them. Of course on the short ndtice'itrwas impossible' to g...
