The Last of the Bridge-street Burglars. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 2 June 1894

The Last of the Bridge-street Burglars. Few crimes committed in Australia have created more cxcitement and wider interest than the deter mined assault committed some months back on the police by Thomas Carroll (better known as Wil liams) and Thomas Millidge (alias Montgomery) who wero disturbed whilst trying to effect an entrance iato a steam company s office in Bridge-street, Sydney, early one morning, for the purpose of plunder. The desperadoes, who were well-known in Victoria made, a desperate fight for their liberty, beating some of the police so severely on tho head with iron 'jemmies'' that they lad to be taken to the Hospital, where they remained many weary weeks. 'When Williams and Montgomery were finally secured 5 a revolver was found upon the person of the latter. After an extended trial the men were sentenced to death, and tho verdict met with general approval. Of late, however, a feeling has been growing that the penalty threatened was too severe for the offence, and mov...

Stage Kisses. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 2 June 1894

Stage Kisses Love-making on the stage is generally supposed by the unsophisticated public to be more or less of a perfunctory business, a make-believe affair as dry and tasteless to the performers as the property food and drink which they affect to swallow at their banquets. Romantic and sentimental people will be glad to know that the tender passion, as represented on the boards, is not all pretence, and that occasion ally, at least, Cupid gets in his work without shame or compunction right before the foot lights. A case in point is said to have occurred recently in a popular comic opera troupe in which the prima donna and the baritone .vere the victims of the sly little god. How or where the mutual attraction first began is not stated, but that it had not only begun, but was well advanoed, was made manifest to the audiences soon after the baritono joined the company. It was part of the baritone's duty to kiss the prima donna, and it was supposed that he would do it after the ordin...

Heart Poems. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 2 June 1894

Heart Poems. There are some poemR that possess tlie subtle, undefined quality that touches the tenderest cords of our being, ond wakeb 'thi better soul that slumbers' to a sense of the ineffable pathos of life. Some one has said ' our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thoughts.' Yet it is not the sadness only that produces tbe effect upon us, for there are many poems describing the direst miseries., disappointments, and Borrows of life, that lack the peculiar quality r.hat cannot be defined— that flies before the touch of analysis. It is the very soul of the poet iu communion with our own. Tennyeoa wrote inaoy iines that arc heart-poems. What touches the heart more than his ' Break, Break, Break ?' The waves breaking on the 'cold, gray stones the shouts of happy children in con trast with the ' voice that iB still,' and the safe return of the ships — the hopelesB absence of the 'vanished hand.' How vivid are they all I .... . ' Break, break, break. At tho foot ol' thy cr...

Sporting Notes and Notions. [Br thb Vagrant.] _ Although light rain fell during the greater por tion of Saturday afternoon, the Bhowers in no apparent way interfered with the success of the Newcastle race meeting, which was bxought to a conclusion in the presence of a large attendance from all quarters of the district.

A Judge's Righteous Wrath. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 2 June 1894

A Judge's Righteous Wrath, A peculiar scene was enacted in Omaha in the District Court on February 26, when Judge Scott proceeded to arraign the city officials on a charge of gambling. ' This court is ab solutely handicapped,' he said. '? It is absolutely impossible to run the Criminal Court under the order of things here in the city. Saturday they brougnc a man in here arrested for selling his wares without a license. That act waB made a crime by the same pen from which flowed the ordinance allowing gamblers to run gambling houses in con sideration of £30 a month. Yet I am threatened and told that I must not say anything aboat it. I hope there ia a god in Israel who will right this matter. When the authorities of tho city will incarcerate a man for selling his own legitimate wares it is no wonder the people have no respect for tho courts. They call this the land of freedom It is not so in Omaha. It makes a great deal of difference who is who, how much money, how much political infl...

Very Cutting. A true story of the late Mr. Parnell, when attend ing a meeting in support of a candidate during an election in an Irish provincial town, is characteristic of him. A rather large and noisy number in the crowd were opposed to him, and these at length pressed up close to the conveyance from which he was speaKing. Among the foremost of thoBe who clamoured around the brake was a well-known local virago, no less distinguished by a weakness for the ' drop' than by the extraordinary ugliness of her physiognomy. Pressing close up to the Irish leader she aBsail ed him at intervals, while the meeting con tm ued, . with a torrent oE abuse of the most exasper ating kind. At length, as he was driving off, in his blandest tone he bade her adieu in these words ? Madam, your insults I may forget, but your face X never shall.'

EDWD. HIGGENS, MARSHALL, AND CO.'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 2 June 1894

EDWD. niGOENS, MARSHALL, AND CO.'s REPORT. Fat Cattle.— Market heavily supplied with cattle rauging in quality from medium to prime. Buyers were in good attendance, and values at the opening sale rnled a shade firmer than last: week's rates; medium sorts and light steers are difficult to quit at very low prices, but the operations of graziers assisted very mateiially in disposing of this class of stock. Wo again had last sale, and did not com mence selling until nearly dark, and were unable to clear the whole of our yardings. At yesterday s market buyers were well represented, but biddings lacked animation, and with the exception of two or three prime and heavy bullocks, which sold at fair values, the demand was extremely dull, and prices disastrously low, especially for medium and inferior qualities. Our sules comprise — On account of White Bros., 81 cows at £1 14s Gd to £2 14s, very light at XI Gs to XI 10s ; P. and H. Cox, 13 bul locks at £3 53 to £4 13s ; W. McMullen, 11 bul loc...

Maitland Auctioneers' Reports. J. N. BRUNKER'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 2 June 1894

Maitland Auctioneers' Reports.; jJ n. brunker's report. Fat Cattle. — Sales opened on Monday with a full supply, and business throughout indicated a tone of weakness, which was more fully perceptible at yesterday's market. Whilst medium and wasted cattle are difficult to place at low price?, moderately active competition is elicited for prime quality, and my consignments of this clans brought by far the highest values realised. Graziers in tho Southern districts are necessarily compelled at this season to quit all marketable stock. In former years they found buyers in Victoria, but tho stock tax has diverted consienments to Sydney, and the supply in consequence so fur exceeds the demand that prices havo receded to the lowest ebb ex perienced for a considerable period. My sales compose — On account of the Duckenfield Estate, bullocks at £4 2s, light at £3 7s Gd to £3 lGs Gd ; H. C. White, steers at £2 4s 6d to £2 10s ; A.
