TERRIBLE DEATH OF THE GEELONG STATION-MASTER. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 1 August 1876
TERRIBLE.i DEATH OF : THE GEELONG STATION-MASTER. One-of the greatest catastrophes that has happened in Geelong for a number of years occurred on Monday morning,' ',hodi it 'was discovered that Mr. Joseph Henry, railway station-master here, had committed suicide by drowning. -From facts that havo-since transpired it appears ho has been in a dcsa ponding state of minid'for sbmo time past. I had'a quarter'of alt hour's conversation w?;itli him on'the 'platfoti'bon Saturday night, 'when to all outward appearance he was in ex collent health amid spirits. Last night iibdlit 6 o'clock ho 'kissed his-wife and' childorn, and said they ivould never 'see him again, but as e ho adi so ofton made the same remark, little or no notico' was taken of it. l[ow ever, he seems to have been determined upon ending his life, for besides tying two rail way chairs to his foot, heo lfstoned his hands and legs so, that all possibility, of' his attempting to save himself wutsld be pro cluded. lie then climboe...
MERINO. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 1 August 1876
MER.IN O. (eno3r oun dws cORESPONOENT). - The Best forgery case, tried before the local bench on Thursday, caused considerable excitement, ?,nd I-certainly think Senior Constable Kennedy conducted the caseo.ll through with great ability. I have sent an account of the proceedings. The Mutual Improvement Society's Concert camle off, as announced, on Thursday even ing: the patronage bhstowed was hardly worthy the occasion. The performance was entirely amateur, and therefore I camnot pass i a greater eulogium upon the performers than to say they all did their very best, ,and were appreciated accordingly. One marked feature of the entertainment wag the splendid piano manipulation of a young lady amateur, hitherto unknown to the public, and who, let us hope now the ice is broken, will often delight a Merino audience with her musical brilliance.
SOCIALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 1 August 1876
SOCIALITIES. There is something very delightful in the disposition that looks always on the bright side of everything. I have been lamenting the necessity which has caused our beautiful esplanade to be erased fromt the map of Portland, but this feeling of disgust at the inevitable has been considerably modified lately. Meeting a lady tile other day, who would, I thought,sympirthise in the mathetical, I accosted her with the usual " what a pity this view should be co spoiled." when she gave this practical rejoinder--" the cutting will be the making of this end of the town, the green is pretty, but we can't live upon grass." Since the advent of the clever phrenolo giste to the town, a good many amateurs are trying to remember what they once know of phrenology, so that a nervous man is quite uncomfortable when lie has to remove his hat; lihe does not know who may be noting his deficiency'of moral bumpss,' ad his' super fluity of those that are not moral. Would it lnot be a good plan to...

MANSLAUGHTER OF A CHILD AT FITZROY. On Friday an inquest was held by the city coroner, at Fitzroy, on the body of tlhe illegitimate male infant of a young woman named Sarah Charlton, a domestic servant In the employ of the Rev. S. U.

From what she noticed, Mrs. Kent said to her, "You have been confined.'' She admitted it, and added that the child was dead in the bed-room. Wi...

MELBOURNE. S(PRFi OUR OV? co?0?Esro.NIENT.) Friday, July 28, 1876. A night's reflection is a wonderful sedative to. the: troubled spirits which are usually slightly muddled by the turmoil of an election, and it is therefore not surprising that the threats of impeaching the validity Dr. AMadden's return on the ground of " beer and'bribery" have evaporated in 1onam By the proceedings.of the 27th of July, the Ministry have for a time practically' gained two votes, and this will be a great deterrent to the contemplated Opposition to thi ruidget, which was much talked of, hut so little i.elioved in la-t week.

HARROW. (to0t?. OU11 OWN COnRESPONJhtNT.) 29th July, 1876. The season so far has been so very dry that grave fears are beginning, to be entertained by thie residents in this district that there will be a scarcity of water nIext summner. Unless we have a heavy fall of rain shortly, such will be the case too, for we have had, :comparatively speaking, little or none as yet.

SHIRE LOAN. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 1 August 1876
SHIRE LOAN. THC financial prospects of the Port land Shire are not promising, and all the intelligence and sober thought that can be brought to bear on them will be needed to overcome the difficulties and unravel tho intricacies that seem to present themselves at every turn. In a letter which appears in another column, the President has placed the situation clearly before the public, and, reverting to his theory of a loan under the provisions of the Act, urges its immediate consideration in Council. Ratepayers will admit that when the settlement of the shire debt was under discussion, the President was out numbered by those who favoured Mr. SKENE'S views, but they must credit him with having left a loop-hole through which escape might be effected if escape should at any time be deemed desirable. From the time the debt was under consideration the President and his supporters pushed the matter as far as they could, but they never, appIarcntly, lost sight of the necessity for a loan ar...

A MILITARY CHRISTIAN.—Major &nbsp; &nbsp; General Uchstius, the inventor of the new Austrian gun, has also invented, the Eastern Budget states, a new projectile, which has been tried with such favour- able results that it will probably be adopted for use by the Australian Artil- lery. It consists of a cast-iron shell, about 11 millimetres in diameter, enclosing 12 rings and a centrepiece, all fitting into each other, but easily detachable. Both the shell and the rings are conical in shape, and each ring is divided into 10 sections, so that when the shell explodes, besides the fragments of the outer case, 120 iron balls, representing the sections of the rings, are sent flying in all directions. Applications for leases, under section 20, approved:—Arch. McLean, J. McDonald, jun., and Edwin Hiscock, Hotspur; &nbsp; Anthony Naylor, Brimboal; Michael Leacy, Warrayure; Samuel Crump, Narrawong.
