It is a wonderful poem-one of those destined to live for ever, and occupy a warm corner in the heart of all womankind. We have pub, lished it twice every winter for the past ten years, but must decline this winter. We do not wish to wear out a good thing" It is a beautiful poem. It was written by iMajor Signourney, Charles Faxon, Dora Shaw, and a man named Watson. One or two other persons may have assisted, but they are not worthy of mention." (A.rn't they ? Isn't the original author, Sheldon Chadwick, worth mentioning?) An amusing incident in the career of Power, the bushranger, is related (according to the Geelong ...
THE GREAT JEWEL ROBBERY. [DAILY NEWS, 21ST MARCH.] [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 8 June 1871
THE GREAT JEWVPL RO ERY. [DAILY LEWS, 21ST MaRCIL.] Martha Torphev, the " girlish-looking woman, aged twenty eight, wearing her hair in rinelets," to quote the original report of her apprehension, looked at le.st ten years more than her age as she sat in. the Old Bailey dock yesterday, her infant in her arms, and her careworn face and tearful eves turned alternately to the bench and the jury. The ringlets had disappeared with the girlish look, and a bowed down middle aged woman, with the., remains of good looks, both in features and contour, but with every expression but that of a half sullen agonised despair beaten out of her by circumstances, was the impression given to every one in court. During the first part of the trial, when MIr Metcalfe was delivering his open. ing speech, and when Mr Douglas Straight, I his colleague for the prosecution was examin, ireg witnesses, the psisoner was scarcely viihble. A round head with bands of fair hair flattened down to it, and the central p...

Local. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 8 June 1871
The letter of " Presbyterian" in another column, is we believe a fair reflex'of the feel, ng of disgust which the words of the Rev Mr Hunter, on Thursday evening last, created in the minds of his hearers, whilst to our, selves it is a satisfactory acknowledgement of having done a duty without leaning to one side or the other. We have always been severe with parties who have been stumbling blocks to progress, and who have striven to keep the people enveloped in a mantle of darkness by continually instilling petty feelings of bigotry and intolerance, and we just now quietly renind the rev. gentleman named that we are not prepared to make any concession in his case, as if he endeavours to isolate parties into different sections, when all should work unitedly for the common good, he may look out for the consequences. By an advertisement in another column it will be sean that in future quarterly fairs of horses, cattle, &., are to be held in the township of Pyalong. The first of ...
