POWER THE BUSHRANGER. A POLICEMAN STUCK-UP. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 3 March 1870

POWER THE BUSHRANGER A POLICEMAN STUCK-UP On Friday, the 25th inst., information was received at the Avenel police station that Power, the bushranger, had stuckup some seven or eight carriers between Seymour and Avenel on the same day and robbed them of some £30, besides three bottles of brandy and some provisions. It appears he was in the bush, off the road, and when the first waggon was near him, he came out and or- dered the driver to "bail up," at the same time pointing a double barrelled gun at him.   When the driver stopped the horses, Power addressed him saying "I suppose you know   who I am; I am Power, the bushranger; it   is a pity to rob chaps like you but I am hard up and I intend to stick up the coach but the police are hard after me." The waggonera were all stuck up one after the other and upon leaving them, the bushranger   opened one of the bottles he had taken and drinking a portion of the brandy himself, he gave t...

ANOTHER ADDITION TO THE BYRON SCANDAL. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 3 March 1870

NOTIIER ADD)ITION TO THE. BYeRON SCANDAL. Another volume, under the title of "Medora, Leigh," edited by Dr Mackay, has just been published in reference to the Byron scandal. The story of Elizabeth Medora Leigh, as revealed by this wretched autobiography, is,; says a London contemporary, one of the saddest that we have ever perused. We have not space to do more than touch upon its leading features. It will be remembered by all who have followed the Byron contro versy attentively, that Colonel and the Hon. Augusta Leigh lived together for twenty years after the separation of Lord and Lady Byron. Four of the children were born before 1816--the year before Lord and Lady Byron separated-and three more children were born to them after that year. The miserable writer of this startling autobio. graphy was putatively the fourth child of Colonel and Mrs Leigh, and was born in the same year as Lord and Lady Byrom's only daughter-1815. She tells therein that, in 1826, her eldest sister, Georgia...

HIGHWAY ROBBERY. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 10 March 1870

IfIGHWAY ROB BJRXY. We have again to record another robbery under arms. On Saturday last, a man tra veiling between Jamieson and Mansfield was stopped, by. a man with a sreen? or v.eil over his face, an~ robbed of some. money. and. a quantity of gold dust. He said that he was Power, the bushranger, and that he was only beginning his career. We. have every reason to believe that this was not Power, but some of his. accpplipces, who,.know.ing that Power was hard pressed between the Mansfield and Reedy Oreek Ranges, pert formed this exploit to prevent his being captured. iho gh, a wily, persevering, plotting robber, it was, npat to an impossil bility for him- to.: get to the J~amieson. with. the force now after him, for ttliere is now scarcely a clever cdnstable in the -country that is not on: his track.; therefpre, we. think this last exploit was oply got up.lto frustra.e his capture.

MINING DEPRESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 10 March 1870

MINING DEPRESSION. (From the Ballarat Star) It might not be unprofitable labour to enquire as to how much of the existing dei pression in mining matters is due to the want of proper legislation. For years past there has been a demand for changes in the law, but the fury of political warfare has excluded practical men from the Legislature, and returned those who could pander cuns ningly to the passions of the time, whilst they were incapable of giving one practical suggestion in regard to mining law. We do not suppose that any laws, however care fully devised, could save men from their own folly, or prevent an abuse of speculation being felt in a subsequent reaction against even legitimate adventures. The burnt ini vestor, for a time, not only dreads the fire, but light itself. Human nature is ahke, whether at the Ballarat Corner or the Lon. don Stock Exchange, and periods of elation will be followed by depression, just as surely as the tides ebb and flow. But, althouah legislation c...

PROPOSED INTERCOLONIAL CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 10 March 1870

PROPOSED INTF1RCOLONIAB CON FERENCE. Mr Macpherson laid before the Assembly on Wednesday a proposal received from the Colonial Secretary of Tasmania for an In. tercolonial Conference, having reference principally to the question of a Customs Union. The writer, after expressing a regret that the proposal in 1868 from the New Zealand Government was not carried out, defines as the subject for the conference now proposed, " to consi=ler and decide upon the advisability of ectablishing an Australian commercial federation on the basis of a Cus toms Union with a -oinmron tariff and a free interchange of products end commodities," and says he is inclined to think it is not de sirable to complic.te the discussion or jeopardise the settle:nent of that question by formally referring- to the conference now proposed, other subjects of common interest on which there might be a difference of opinion. At the same time, he considers that no question ought to be formally ex, eluded from the conferenc...
