PENTRIDGE STOCKADE AND ITS OFFICERS.—THE SUSPICIOUS MAN SUSPECTS HIMSELF. To the Editor of the Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 3 September 1873
PEvNTIIDGE STOCKADE AND ITS OFFICERS. - THE SUSPICIOUS MAN SUSPECTS HIIMSELF. To the Editor of the Advertiser. Sir-For some considerable time past matters at the above establishment have been going on in anything but a peaceful manner amongst the officers, and loud and bitter complaints are poured forth at the conduct and behavior of the present Superintendent towards not only the warders but the various officers immedi ately connected with him, so much so that of late that ofllicer has on more than one occasion been reported to the Inspector General for his boorish and uncalled-for behavior towards them. That this is no new thing with this officer who has got into a position which he is totally unfitted for is a well-known fact. I have ventured, with your kind permission, to trespass on your space, in the hope that when this oflicer sees that the public are watching the proceedings of the above establishment it may induce him to alter his conduct towards those under him, and turn h...
Correspondence. LAW REFORM. To the Editor of the Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 3 September 1873
Correspondence. LAW I EFORM. To the Editor of the Adveertiscr. Sir--I see you have been poking fun at us about our "pigeon box" police court. What wicked sinful people editors must be to talk or rather write so irroverently about time-honoured institutions, and who will say that our " pigeon-box". is not a time-honoured institution? A very interesting volume might be witten, entitled, "Reminisconces of our pigeon-box." That little building has wit nessed some curious capers, and if it was endowed with the gift of speech it could "many a tale unfold" about justice and magisterial fair play. "Would your Worship please to increase the fine to lire pounds so as to enable me to appeal?" Tliese were the words which, on a certain occasion, a certain "aggrieved" defendant addressed to a certain would-be tall potentate who used to visit us once a week tbr the ostensible purpose of administering justice in the "little building" of whicei you have written so irreverently. The would-bo potentat...
THE ANCIENT GAME OF BOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 3 September 1873
THE ANCIENT GAMEi\ OF JOWLS. "What is the reason that no oifort has yet been made to form a bowling club in the Borough of lotham? Our neighborsu in West M1elbourno, Carlton and Fitzroy have long been able to boast of very clih cient clubs, and their bowling greens are a credit to the districts. Of the game itself much can be said in its favor. It is thoroughly identified with the old land, it is exhilirating and cheerful, and is recom mended strongly by the faculty. A green second to none round Melbourno can be made in the reserve on the Flemington road, and if application were made to' the council for a portion of it to be handed ovor to a club there is little doubt of such a request being granted, and possibly accompanied with some little aid towards the formation of the green.
THE REFUGE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 3 September 1873
TIFE 3tEFUGE. We understanid that a final effort is to be made to procure the removal of this nuisance from Carlton. The present home for unfortunates is used as more hospital for the inmates, who when cured of their disease, generally return to their oli ways. Night after night mes sages, letters, prohibited comforts, &c., are convoyed to the "refugees" from the outside; while hardly one femaln leaves the IRefuge without the day and hour of her so leaving being known to her friends who lie in walt, and pounce upon their vic tim as soon as she appears to ge4 her return to her vicious life. Tle price of the land on which the building is situate would if sold produce sutlicient money to permanently endowe the Refuge with an . ietome .Ef pbout £1,000 a. year, besides purchasing five acres of land, say. at Studley Park, Northcote, or some suburb far enough from town to on. sure the absence of the larrikins who now :infest the neighborhood.

A PAIR OF LOAFERS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 3 September 1873
A PAIRl OF LOAFERS. On Monday night about nine o'clock two men in civilian's clothes, and under the influcuco of liquor, knocked at the premises of Mr. Marsden in North Eliza beth street, and on obtaining admittance one represented himself as a police con stable, the other as an Inspector of Nuisances. They demanded access to the whole of the premises, and dared himi on his peril to interfere with them. Mr. M?arcen pluekyy pitched both of them out of his shop, end followed them nearly up to Queensberry street, looking in vain for a constable. At last the couple hailed a cab, the one who styled himself a police man scrambling up in front, the Inspector behind. Marsden after trying to drag them out, jumped in, and gave them a good thrashing. Eventually they were glad to tumblo out, and while the cab driver was listening to the indignant Marsden the pair of loafers skeddadled. Constable Prirchard, No. 24.73. was the name and number given by one of them. 0- - -
IMPROVEMENT IN CARLTON. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 3 September 1873
IMPRiOVEMENT IN CAIRLTON. Councillor Rlichardson has succeeded in oblaining the sum of £1000 to be expended in forming the streets of Carlton. It must not be forgotten, however, that Councillor Curtnin was the first to advocate "justice for Carlton" in the City Council, and is likewise entitled to the thanks of the ratepayers. It is to be hoped that this sum of money is but the first instalment of a much larger amount for outlay in thb same direction.

SMITH STREET, COLLINGWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 3 September 1873
SAITHi STREET, COLLINGWOOD. The steady advance in improving street architecture which hIrs been made in Smith street, Collingwood, is a very fair test ofttho prosperity of the town. On Friday last M1r. Langridge sold the mn torial of three ricketty tumble down structures opposite the National Bank, which have long been a disgrace to the street, and there are several others lower down, the owners of which should be ashamed to let them stand in their present dilapidated condition. Should a fire occur in one of these there is no predicting when it would stop, for thi old lumber of which they are built would burn like paper. Mr. Foy has leased the ground which the former mentioned shops stood, and intends to add thereon an additional frontage to his already splendid establish ment.

British and Foreign. CHINESE INVASION OF RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 3 September 1873
British and Foreign. CHINESE INVASIONOF RUSSIA. A letter from the Amooi in, the " Moscow Gazette" calls attention ;to the danger of a Chinese invasion of the Runssian territory on that river. The Amoor district, says the cor , respondent, is very unfavourably 'situated from a strategical point of view, and would present great facilities for oan attack. The Chineso have made great progress of late in sbhipbuilding; even thoAcmericans now employ Chinese workmen for the construction of steamers at San Francisco, and the skill and thoroughness of their work, are universally praised. There are, already a number of Chineso gunboats on the Tieo.Tain, and.if a fleet of steamers, were posted in the upper part of the Sungari they could, in the event of a war, go down the, stream, divide the province of the Amoor into two parts, and eut off all commnunication between Russin and her ports on the Pacific.

THE VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 3 September 1873
THE VISIT. I ,wAs admired and envied by my acquaint ance.: I was handsome, sprightly, quick witted; and though I did not point in water-colors, was tolerably accomplished, nineteen years old, and of one of the best families in Kingsford. : My family was all that it should be; but notwithstanding its prosperity and power, I was much dis satisfied with my condition at this time. To me Kingsford was a desert. My inner life was a desert, a waste, a solitude, where, figuratively; speaking, there were no castles in the air, nopalace of the Sleep ing Beauty. Of course I did not value the inestimable privilege of.health, youth, and the enjoyment of solid worldly com forts. iMy mind was empty ;in fact, it was wasting'for every possible cxperionce and its result.. 'rhoe mysterious oracle which plroclaims 'the power .and solace of nature was dumb, and the institiotive sympathies which give us an insight into the inidividualities of others had not been roused. Without dreaming.the truth con cer...
