THE SUSSEX STREET MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 March 1867

THE SUSSEX STREET MURDER. The trial of William Henry Scott, for the mur der of Annie Scott, began on the 20th ult., before Mr Justice Cheeke, and, after a long and patient hearing, terminated in the conviction of the accused, on whom sentence of death was passed in impressive langunge by the learned judge. The unhappy culprit preserved throughout the trial the same unmoved demeanor which had characterised him from the commencement, and only betrayed a slight emetion when the jury returned into court at nine o'clock, after the absence of an hour. Upon hearing the terrible verdict he protested his entire innocence with solemn emphasis, but with a recklessness ef manner that painfully impressed all present. As he was removed from the court, the poor young woman whom he seems to have betrayed into a bigamous marriage, threw herself on the bench where she ihad been sitting for some hours, and wept bitterly. During the absence of the jury, the excitement amongst the crowd in the court bec...

The owner was1 anxious to get the assistance of some of t'ae natives to work the Kchooner, and ten were engaged, who went on board, and she then pro ceeded to sea.

PATENT , FUSE MANUFACTORY. The,banks of the Saltwater river are a favorito position for the establishment of manufactories, and the little township of Footscray is becoming the foci of numerous industries, in the progress and success of whioh every colonist, must take a deep interest. There are soap and candle manufactories, potteries, tanneries, works for the manufacture of kerosene, and amongst the rest, and the most re cently established, is a patent fuse manufactory, which is situated on the north side of the Footscray rail way station.

THE MOHTH. After a debate of several weeks' : duration, and after haying thrice attempted to oust the Govern ment, the Opposition have allowed the tariff to pass. The debate was raised by] an amendment, proposed by one of the extreme protectionist party, affirming that the tariff was not protective, and would not encourage colonial industry. ' It was chiefly remark able for indulgence in personalities, and for certain declarations which were elicited from Messrs. M'Cul loch and Higinbotham towards the close. MrM'Cul loch havingfretiuently been twitted with beingthe free trade head of a protectionist Government, avowedtliat, though a free trader like others on his arrival in this country, he had become convinced by expe rience that, however desirable a free trade policy may be for an old country, protection to infant industries is necessary to a new.
