NOCTURNAL DEMONSTRATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 27 July 1867

NOCTURNAL DE1IONSTRATIONS.. (fio the Editor of tile COnoxicrr .) Sie,-On Saturday last, between the hours of one and two aum., the residents of- this neighbourhood were disturbed by the unseemn ly and disgraceful behaviour, of several young gentlemen, who were not satisfied with shout ing at the top of their voices, but made -a charge with sticks upon my door, by no means improving its external ippearance. Soine of them I am sorry to say, were even aware that a lady was lying dangerously ill in the next house,' which should at. least have deterred them from such ungentlemanly conduct; I would therefore warn them against a repetition of their midnight performance, if they wish to prevent.their next debit from being made at the Police Court. By inserting these few lines ii yourii next issue, you will oblige. . . . Yours, truly, Josx. G. GrILac. Rousseiu-street, Williamstown, July 24, 1867.
