THE LATE MAIL BAG. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 July 1864

THE LATE MAIL BAG. The annexed engraving re presents a busy scene which occurs monthly at the shop of Mr'W. B. Stephens, book seller, of Collins street west, on the closing of the'mail bag, which affords the means of despatching letters home up to, the latest possible hour for the out-going mail steamer. This very convenient system was first adopted by Mr. Ste phens in October, 1863, in compliance with the request of several of his customers. He at that tune commenced for warding to Sandridge, in time for the closing of the late sup plementary mail at noon on the day of jthe departure of the mail steamer, a late letter bag; and the want that ex isted for this convenience was at once made apparent by the fact of upwards of 230 letters; being deposited hi the late bag on the first occasion of its being placed at tho disposal Of the public. The success of this new idea, it appeared, was not at all pleasing to the postal authorities. In January hist Mr Stephens received a com munication...

OP EARTH. ?One of tho most painful. mining accidents wo havo had occasion for a long time past to record, occurred the 29th ult., about nine o'clock a.m., in the work ings of the New Wombat Hill Company's number one shaft. While seven men were engaged, in one ? capacity or another, blocking back from a point not far from the Haiihnzard Company's boundary, an immense mass of earth, fell down, not it would seem without a brief, previous warning, as one of the men — Isaac Allison— said, addressing another, 'Harry I'm off, it will come down.' Allison instantly moved back,. but was not a foot beyond the reach, of danger, when the earth fell down, as bo was struck in the leg by some of it in its descent. In the particu lar part of the workings where the accident occurred, there were only three men employed, and their names were I3aac Allison, Henry Conch and William Leyshon. : Of these the first escaped, as wo have al ready stated,...

Appendix No. 1. Eepoht by Mr Surveyor Jones to the Leader. — Sir, — -I have the honor to inform you that, sinoe I sepa rated from you at tha . Stockyard Flat, on the Omeo road, on Thursday, the 31st March, I tried to find a route bearing about. N.W. for the Dargo head, as you in structed me, which course I kept for about a mile, as far as Snake Hill. From this place I was able to take several bearings, so as to fix my position on tho Dividing Range, between the Crooked, and Dargo Eivers. From this place the range turned to the eastward; so that, by keeping to tho N.W., I found the country became too much broken by creeks flowing into the Crooked Eiver, and that I was compelled to make due N. for another mile, whioh brought me into your Omeo track again, the range having come round to the westward. This track has its advantages, as it leads down to tho only water for some distance on either side of it and a well grassed plain for camping purposes. Where my track joins yours, at eithe...

SINGULAR, CASE OF LUNACY. [PROM THE ABABAT ADVERTISER, JULY .5.] Few more interesting cases have ever come before tho .public than that presented by the man Mark Cashin, now ani inmate of our gaol. It will bo re membered that some time ago we sketched an out line of tho ailment under whioh he was suffering, but since then more has transpired which' adds con siderably to the surroundings of the case. As it may bo profitable to contemplate, through the incidents connected with this patient, the working of our in stitutions, and curious to follow his. course from the1 enjoyment of comparative health to the present state, we will trace his career from the time when first his disorder assumed the characteristics which lead to a belief in his ' dementia.' A few months. ago Cashin got an order of admission into the hospital as a patient suffering from a disease of the chest, and while there he showed' evidences of great religious fervor, refusing at times to take either the food or wine wh...
