MONDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 7 February 1870

MONDAY, FEBRUABY 7, 1870. Out of the mass of reports, pamphlets, and circulars, detailing the proceedings and opinions of those good persons now in Eng land who are so very busy at present with colonial affairs, it is gratifying to be able to select one proposal which bears the stamp of bold statesmanship, and resolves itself simply into a question of a pecuniary investment, on the part of the richest nation in the world, with a fair prospect, at least, of a return in due course of time. We have nothing to do now with the political sugges tions, as to the relations of the colonies to the mother country. We have, by the last mail, some additional contributions of this sort, which may possibly receive further attention on a future occasion. We have a paper read by Mr. Thomas Briggs, whoever, he may be, before the Social Science Association, and in which he blames the British Government and Parliament for allowing Australian colonists to acquire a right over the lands, and denounces th...

A Cool Self-Murderer. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 7 February 1870

A Cool Self-Murderer. Edward Scheivelbein committed suicide near Louisville, Ky., a few days ago. It seems from the promiscuous scribblings that were found on his -ody, that, after going to his room at Mr. Dean's house, he took a dose of arsenic, and, after waiting pationtly for several hours without any effect, shot himself. While waiting, he wrote the following messages : — ' I have swallowed arsenic, about a quarter tea spoonful. It has not troubled me yet, one hour from the time. Nextn-the pistol. K. S. ' Before resolving finally on the pistol, however, ho waited for the poison to do its work, writing down in the meantime his experiences and meditations. ' For the benefit of suicides : Be sure and learn from good doctors the vital parts of the body, or you'll be bothered as I am. E. S.' Then again : ' Advice to further suicides : Don't do liko me, but find out the exact vital point before shooting, and ' also the quantity of arsenic. ' E. S. j 'For the benefit of man: I have tak...

A Good Practical Joke. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 7 February 1870

A Good Practical Joke. At the Haldimand Assizes, Canada, recently, Judge Wilson, instead of proceeding to the county town by rail as had been expected, drove over from Hamilton in a carriage. In consequence he was about two hours late. In the meantime, in ac cordance with an ancient custom, the high bailiff, with four or five of his subordinates, prepared to escort his lordship from his hotel to the court-house. The Judge was not personally known to any of the party; but, having ascertained that he had arrived, they waited below prepared to do all honour to him when he should come down etairs. In the meantime Mr. II. H. Foley came down, and supposing from his dignified appearance that this must be his lordship, the high bailiff formed his squad into double line, and proceeded to escort him. Mr. Foley quickly Baw the mistake, but determined not to spoil the joke, accepted the offered honour as a matter of course, and the procession moved on in the most solemn and dignified manner. So...
