ENGLISH MAIL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 4 April 1879

ENGLISH MAlIL NEWS. From our files by the mail we extract the following : THE REPORTED SUBMISSION OF YAKOOB. KLIAN. Yakoob Khan has at last despatched an answer to the letter addressed to him by the political officer with Sir Samuel Browne's force. In it he distinctly declines to accede to our demands, and evinces his determina tion of holding Cabul in compliance with orders received from his father. Thus are set at rest all those rumors which for the past esix weeks have filled the air," We I know now that the reports circulatel as to Yakoob Khan's intended submission are baseless, and must- prepare ourselves for crushing any attempted reorganisation of .:- _he demoralised army of Cabul. The de fiant attitude assumed by Yakoob fully ac counits for the hilt at .Tellalabad, and paints to the necessity of co:npleting in all haste commissariat -aid transport arrangements for. the reserve divisions. Jolhllabad is being rapidly nut in a state of defence, and a bridge capable of bearing f...

It is not known how it originated, but it is supposed that it was caused. by . the machinery. The firm for some time has been holding back a' very large stock valuel' at £5000 or £6000. The building consisted of two stories of bluescone, and two stories of brick. . The building cost £6000, and was finished about six years ago. The fire completely gutted the building. The build ing is much damaged, the machinery is de stroyed, and the stock 'also is nearly all de stroyed. The damage done is estimated at £10,000. The building was insured for £1100, and the stock and machinery in £3700. The supposed cause of the fire is heat from the boiler.

The Lancet says ;-- r Secretary Cross has encouraged the hope that nothing so imbecile as an ado'tion of the heathen practice of burning the dead will be tole rated in England. The perils of such a procedure are manifest,andhave been suffi ciently exposed. Nothing could possibly be easier, than to destroy the traces of poisoning, and, indeed, of death from vio lence in every form, if cremation were al lowedeby the law of the land. It is pass ing strange how the danger of even per mitting the recourse cameto be overlooked. Obviously not only would the presence of poison be undiscoverable, but the traces of internal injury and many methods of mur der would be lost, if the body of a dead person were destroyed by fire. Crime would be rampant if the means of hiding it for ever were'thus placed at the disposal of evil-doers: It is not easy to discover how this project came to be seriously en tertained or discussed. The Hon.-Francis Scott and those who joined him in the re cent protest aga...

So serious did his condition be Scome that a few months ago leave of ab sence from his clerical duties was granted to him in the hope that a relief from his I arduous labours might terminate in his re covery. With a view of trying the effect of change of scene and associations, he Sabout a fortnight ago,became an inmate of his father's house at Hawthorn, but he be came no better, and on Friday last, during b an interval of temporary insanity, he com I mitted suicide by strangling himself in a ,most determined manner.
