A QUIET DAY AT HOME. (Saturday Review.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

A QUIET DAY AT HOME. ( Saturday Review.) The so-called idle man iu the country not unfrequently longs for a day to himself, with no special business or pleasure previously allotted to it — a day on which he will not be expected either to amuse or to be amused, to attend a couuty meeting, pay h visit tu his lawyer, stay at a friend's house, or entertain guests at home. When there is a prospect of such a day, he thinks that he will thoroughly enjoy himself ; he will read the best articles in the magazines — possibly he may write one ; he will glance over the novels which are most talked about in society ; he will refresh his too practical mind with a little good old poetry ; he will go on ?with the pictnre which he has not touched for a couple of months ; he will have au hour or two's practice on tbe piano or harmonium, do a little carving, aud balance his accounts. The plan for the new buildings shall be sketched out, the boys shall be given a riding lesson, and a quiet walk shall be...

EIGHTEENTH CENTURY SPORTS. (Canterbury Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

EIGHTEENTH CENTURY SPORTS. ( Canterbury Times.) Two noble lords — the Earls of March and Eglington, who especially prided themselves upon the breed and stamina of their horses— made a novel match in 1759. They laid a wager of lOOgs. ?with Messrs. Theobald Tauf and An drew Spoule, a couple ot ardent sup porters of tlie turf, that they would provide a carriage with four running wheels, drawn by four horses, and carry one person, which should accom plish the distance of nineteen miles within the hour. This seems to have been regarded as a feat almost impos sible of accomplishment, and the noble men themselves appeared to have con sidered that appliances of an extra ordinary kind were necessary to ensure success. They had built a light carriage which with its passenger — a boy — weighed 24st. A rope ran from the pole to tbe further end of the carriage and back to ensure strength and stability, and each wheel was furnished with square tin cases filled with oil, which continually lubricat...

ALLEGED COMPLICITY WITH HATFIELD BUSHRANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

ALLEGED COMPLICITY WITH HATFIELD BUSHRANGERS. ( Riverine Recorder.) An investigation was recently held at Balranald respecting the reputed supply of firearms by Mr. H. Cox, of the Hat field Hotel, to the Hatfield bushrangers. Edward Dowling, deposed : — When the Hatfield bushrangers were brought DnlmMolfl 4liAtr lift /-I O QinirlA.haHv1 gun, -a- revolving rifle, and a revolver. The bushrangers had been for about a fortnight at the Hatfield hotel prior to commencing their career ; I believe they had been in Cox's employ. From enquiries made I believe that tbe men were ?without firearms when they went to the hotel ; it is a current tumour that they stuck Mr. Cox up and took the arms from him. Cox has not made any complaint to the police nor claimed the firearms. A mare in the posses sion of the bushrangers was clairfied by Cox and hat)ded over to him ; but he has made no demand for the fire arms. Most of the arms were in good order. Had on several occasions visited the house kept by C...

INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. New South Wales. A melancholy fatal accident happened on the Morpeth Road on Wednesday morning. From reports given, it ap pears that Mr. Alexander Berrie, clerk and salesman to Messrs. Maiden, Hill, and Clark,, of Sydney, was driving a buggy, containing his mother and two nephews, to Morpeth, and when passing a dray driven by a earner named I Dalhunty, the leading horses swerved, coming in contact with the buggy, I which, upsetting, threw out the occu pants. Mr. Berrie and his mother fortunately escaped uninjured ; but one of the little boys, named Harold Raii nell, aged seven years, was killed on the spot. Dalhunty and the other little | boy were both injured, but not very seriously. j Much indignation (!) is expressed at the execution of the aboriginal ' Al- j fred.'

THE CASE OF EDMUND GALLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

THE CASE OF EDMUND GALLEY. The Lord Chief Justice of England, savs the London Figaro oi April 19, lias pleaded in vain for justice to a most cruelly wronged man. But we ought not to say tliat the plea of the learned Judge is altogether in vain, for though Edmund Galley will not receive the mrdon of the Crown, though lie is doomed by the etiquette of the Home Office to die without being officially relieved from the horrible stigma of murder, yet henceforth no one will deem him guilty. In 1836, at the Devon Summer Sssizes, two men, Oliver and Edmund Galley, were convicted of murder. Sir Alexander Cockburn, then a rising junior, was present at the trial. The judge was Mr. Justice John Williams, who was an excellent scholar, a writer of Greek epigrams, a con tributor to the Edinburgh Review, rather eccentric in manner, and not a strong Judge. Only those who have gone circuit can be fully aware of how much in jury cases depends upon the J udge, especially in the Crown Court Oliver, being...

DRAWING-ROOM TALENT. ( Saturday Musical Review.)

But there is a certain amount of docility about us which makes us accept what ever is put before us, until we resemble the Champenois, who is proverbially 'Moutonneux.' At a musical evening in au average house, where we will sup pose that the hostess herself is not a musician, we generally find that the chief factor in the programme — viz. the piano — is an upright (variously known as a cottage, pianette, or pianino), care fully stuck against the wall, so that the voca...

QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

Queensland. Benedict Scortechini, a Catholic priest, was stabbed near Beenliegh, supposed fatally, oil Tuesday, by a man named M'Goldrick. The Assembly on Tuesday discussed the execution of Mutler oil Monday. Several members objected to the Go- , vernment sending no notice to the local Press. The Government denied any such obligation. In the Assembly on Wednesday, Mr. Douglas, speaking on the financial statement, advocated a large increase in the rents of the squatters in the, un settled districts, as a means of re plenishing the revenue. He concluded by moving an amendment amounting to a vote of want of confidence. The Premier at once moved the customary adjournment of the House ; but Mr. Griffith, as leader of the Opposition, disclaimed any previous knowledge of the amendment, and the debate was allowed to proceed. Father Scortechini, who was stabbed near Beenleigh, is progressing favour ably, though he will not be out of danger for three days, as there is some apprehension of int...

THE "EVENING NEWS" IN DEFENCE. (Evening News). [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

The ' Evening News' in Defence. (Evening News). In the Assembly, we were charged with expressing a sympathy with crime. The members who made the charge must have known it to be false, for we have most carefully guarded against the possibility of such an interpretation of our advocacy of commutation. We should most willingly assent to a cnange in the law by which such offenders as those whose cases are being discussed should be punished by severe castigation and even by Captain Charles' method, which, to judge by correspondence, meets with the general approval of the ladies. We have given reasons, which cannot be refuted, for thinking that the law as administered just now does not afford a satisfactory deterrent for crime ) and it would be better for those who disagree with us to argue the subject in a straightforward manner, on broad, general principles, rather than heap un merited abuse on the conscientious efforts which we put forth in a cause which we believe to be righteous.

M'BEAN V. GRIEVE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

M'Bean v. Grieve. (S. M. Herald.) A motion of some interest in connec tion with the interpretation of the Land Act was heard and decided by the Court sitting in Banco, on Thursday. An action for damages for trespass had been brought by one M'Bean against one Grieve, at the last Deniliqum Circuit Court The plaintiff was a squatter and the defendant a free selector. The case turned upon the question whether Grieve's conditional purchase was a valid one, or whether selection, as regarded the land conditionally purchased by him, had been barred by the improvements formerly placed on it by tlie lessee of the run. If the improvements had been held to be improvements of the value of £40, selection in the present instance would necessarily have been held to be barred. The jury, however, found tlia' they were not improvements of the value of £40, and brought in a verdict in favour of the selector. A rule nisi for a new trial was moved for on the grounds, among others, that, as alleged, the e...

(Western Post.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

(Western Post.) We have previously expressed the opinion in this journal that the Execu tive would be acting wisely in giving way to the popular wish for mercy. Capital punishment for rape has been abolished in England during very many vears. In this colonv. nracticallv. the extreme sentence has not been carried out since the initiation of Responsible Government. The hanging of a lad of fifteen will be a thing which we believe would not take place in any other British community, and certainly would not take place here were either Sir Hercules Robinson or Lord Loftus Governor. Such an event will give a great shock to the community. We also believe that the hanging of this blackfellow and this boy and youth will make it extremely difficult, if the law be not speedily altered, to get juries to convict for rape. In the hanging of Alfred no good can be achieved, as there are no blackfellows now to be frightened at the sentence being carried out in his case. In the Bathurst case, the fact...

THE CONDENSED CRIMINALS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

The Condemned Criminals. (Goulburn Jlcrald.) It has been said that though the law which punishes tlieit offence with death is wrong, yet as long as it is the law it ought to be carried out A right thinking man however will rather say that if a law be wrong it ought to be altered as soon as possible, and tliat ] lending its alteration it ought not to be enforced if any legal and constitu tional means exist by which its severity can be mitigated. And this leads to another consideration, which appears to have been forgotten or purposely kept out of sight, namely, that the law takes its course equally whether any par ticular sentence is carried into effect, is commuted, or is remitted altogether. This seems a paradox ; but the explana tion is simple. The law prescribes a certain punishment for a particular offence ; but the law also gives to the sovereign or her representative the power of lessening the penalty or of remitting it entirely. Thus the law lias its merciful side as well as ...
