MONDAY, APRIL 26TH. The court opened at ten, when the trial was resumed by the Crown prosecutor: calling- William Thompson who, sworn, deposed -That he is a surgeon at South Yarra, and had studied the results of the exposure of night-soil, which are invariably injurious. and produce dyspepsia, bilious disorders, and scrofula, and when it contains the germs of a specific fever it is the vehicle for converting such germs to other human beings, cholera and typhoid favor more especially.

SATURDAY, MAY 8, 1875. THE SLANDER MANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 8 May 1875

SATURDAY, MAY 8, 1875. THE SLANDER MANIA. 'CENsURE,' said Dr. JOHNsON, 'is a tax that a man pays to the world for being eminent'; an aphorism which receives daily in Australasia the impress of ratification. Let a colonist, by the force of genius, industry, perseverance, and aptitude attain any prominent position in society, he generally becomes a notable and conspicuous object of scurrility, reproach, and jealousy. He realizes all the practical power of BYRON's celebrated monody upon SHERIDAN, wherein occurs these lines: Hard is his fate on wl?m the public gaze Is fixed for ever to detraot or praise. Repose denies a requiem to his name; And Folly loves the martyrdom of Fame. The late, Mr. ALBERT SaMITH elabo rated upon that opinion when he intro. duced the following passage into his work entitled the "Scattergood Family":-"In the drama, as in literature, a person who stands in one's way, unheeded by, and unknown to the world, beyond bearing the repute of harmless mediocrity, will ev...

THE ZOOLOGICAL GARDENS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 8 May 1875

THE ZOOLOGICAL GARDENS. (aY oUU own nIroaTEIL.) AFTER MR. DICKENS' Eye Witness visited the London wine vaults, he rendered two reports for publication in that literary serial, All : the Year, Round, in the first of which he humbly confessed that when he became confused amidst a labyrinth of passages, and had contracted an acquaintance with sundry, butts,. gimlets,. casks, spigots, and bungs, such was the-over powering influence of the subterranean cellair, that his ideas got obliteraited, and he lost his notes; yet, nevertheless, he bequeathed to posterity this proverb: "No man can understand how to drink a glass of wine scientifically until he has passed through a curriculum of dock studies, and matriculated in a wine vault." The fact is, he was intoxicated' with the atmosphere of the establish ment, and affected to have lost, his senses. The case .was very different with the reporter for the Mercury after his recent visit to the Victorian Zoological Gardens,' in the Royal Park, si...

AUNTIE KIRSTY'S VISIT TO GLASGOW. DY ruES AUTHo or OF MATTenW MtoinIsoN." (PRnOM TEs " LEISURE HOUR.") Strangers had disappeared there, and never been heard of again, she had been told; and doctors kept Sresurrectionists in their pay, who were as ready to lay their murdering hands' on the living as to lift the dead. She was a lone woman, and who kent but that they had their eye on her already! And as these thoughts passed through her mind, she began to cast her timor some looks about her, and more than one' waif-looking (disreputable) charac ter she set down as a body-snatcher. " Such fears forced themselves into Auntie Kirsty's mind whether she would or no-for" you see she was altogether landward bred, and in these days there was little communication between the outlying districts and the great towns, and the paekmen were almost the only news-carriers. She really didna ken whether it was better to go on or turn back. She was in an awful 'awither.(doubt); and the very sweat, she sai...

ALLEGED PERJURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 8 May 1875

ALLEGED PERJURY.       At the Collingwood Police Court, on Tuesday, criminal, proceedings were initi- ated against a family named Utting, for wilful and corrupt perjury, under the fol lowing circumstances: Mr. McKean; MP., conducting the prosecution, and Mr. Gillow appearing for the defence. The facts are as follow :-On March 17th, a man named Francis Spearing was convicted at the Supreme Court, Melbourne, of having, on November 22nd, 1874, unlawfully and carnally abused, or violated, Harriet Utting a child eight years old; for which crime the accused was sentenced by Judge Fellows to ten years imprisonment, and two floggings by the gaol flagellator. This conviction was mainly sustained by the evidence of the child above mentioned, and it would appear that, since the trial, much sympathy has manifested itself towards Spearing, who is now alleged so have been the victim of a diabolical conspiracy; Mr. McKean, in opening the case, stated that the...
