THE LATE BANK ROBBERY AT BRISBANE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 8 June 1878

THE LATE BANK ROBBERY AT BRISBANE. The Brisbane correspondent of The Argun in a recent letter reported that the ' sensation of the hour in Brisbane is the dis covery of the perpetrator of the robbery of the Bank of New South Wales,, which took place some nine months ago. The amount stolen was £1,306, all in notes of other banks. The thief turned out to be a young fellow named Victor Lewis Townsend, a clerk in the bank, and very respectably connected. Previous to the robbery he was known as being rather 'fast,' and more free with his money, apparently, than his salary would warrant, but as his friends were known to be pretty well off his spending . rather more than he earned was easily accounted for, but it is now supposed that he had managed to get heavily into 'debt, and that it wag the pressure of creditors which caused him to plunder the bank. At any rate, he effected a very audacious transfer of the bundle of notes from the Bank of New South Wales to a hole in the Brisbane River...

TERRIBLE SUFFERINGS IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 8 June 1878

TERRIBLE SUFFERINGS IN THE BUSH. A New South Wales paper (the Murrurundi Times, May 4) reports : — Mr. Keys, a butcher of Quirindi, having purchased a number of sheep from Mr. Berry, a selector on 4d station, went, in company with Mr. Henry O'Brien, to bring the sheep into town. They arrived in the neighbourhood of the selection, ana fonnd that a fence had been erected across the old track. Keys, whose horse went over the fence, proceeded towards his destina tion ; O'Brien, unable to get his horse over, followed the line by the fence up the mountain for about a mile. He then gave up the idea of getting round the fence, made an opening by strapping the wires together, and led his horse over. Seeking to return to the plain, he proceeded about 500 yards, when he fell about 6ft. over a ledge, and for fear of further accident ne resolved to remain there for the night In a short time, however, he thought it better to make for the level country in search ot some hospitable roof.

SUPPOSED SUICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 8 June 1878

SUPPOSED SUICIDE. A batheb mysterious discovery was made on Saturday after noon, May IS, on the beach between St Kilda and Brighton. At first it was thought murder or manslaughter had been committed, but circumstances subsequently transpired which are considered evidence of suicide. Between 3 and 4 o clock a young gentleman named Thomas Broadbent who resides at Elwood, was walking along the beach at that place, and observed an object in the water about 10ft from the shore. On approaching it he perceived it to be the body of a man of from 30 to 35 years of age, lying face upwards. There was a wound on the forehead from which the blood was flowing over the face. As the body was lying in only 2ft of water, Mr. Broadbent waded in, and brought it on shore withont much difficulty. He then found that the man was still alive, but quite unconscious, and breathing very heavily. Seeing that the case was critical, Mr. Broadbent laid the man upon the sand, and, leaving him. there, hastened for m...

FIRE BRIGADES' TORCHLIGHT PROCESSION. Fob a long series of years the annual gathering of the united fire brigades has formed one of the principal Queen's Birthday events of this colony. , The locality in which it is held is changed every year, and as several years elapse before any one place is re-visited, the demonstration returns to the selected district with the freshness of a novelty. It was last held in Melbourne in 1874, and since then it has taken place at Sandhurst, Ballarat, and Geelong in succession. This year Melbourne is again the rendezvous, and the central committee have been using every effort to ensure success for the undertaking, and to make the event reflect credit on the metropolis. In accordance with the arrangements of the Railway .department the up-country brigades forwarded their engines, hose-reels, and other apparatus to Spencer-street station on Monday, May 20, and followed them selves on Wednesday and Thursday. The greater majority _of them arrived on Thur...

Th^RE has been, a general: di?il level of theatrical amuse ments during the month, three of the ^eatres playing pretty much the same class of drama; and without any Rnecial attractions in. any case. Miss Coombs, an actress of high reputatioh on the American; stage, played a fortr night's engagement at the Theajtrie Royal, making her first' appearance iii the play of ''Qamille.' Miss Coombs is^a very capable actress, and . ppssesses some conspicuous pJ6rrf aonal5 advantages, but her American mannerisms, want1 of animation in her manner;- and absence of any inflexiph,^in the unvarying mpnotpjne,i-]f her voice, operated against her success with a Melbpuiiie audience. She was succeeded, by Mr. and Mrs- Herndon, who had befprejplayed a weei jor jbwo at the Academy of Music. Mr. J.
