SHOCKING OCCURRENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 January 1879

SHOCKING OCCURRENCE. Messrs. Brocklebank's vessel Tanas-' serjin, which arrived at Liverpool on November 26, was the scene of a shocking occurrence on Sunday, Octo ber 13. On board the vessel there was a coloured steward, named Sherrington and he was regarded by the crew all through the voyage with something of suspicion. This feeling was intensified owing to a fire Inning broken out on board, which was attributed to the coloured steward. Early on the morn ing of the day named Sherrington sud denly seized the carpenter's axe, and with one blow cleaved the head of the first officer, a Scotchman named M'Phail. In a moment afterwards he dealt a blow with the same weapon at an ap prentice, and almost cut him in two. It is needless to say that death in both cases was almost instantaneous. The coloured man then made a rush over the ship's side, and was never seen afterwards. Buoys were thrown over board, but both buoys and man were at once seized by the sharks that followed the vessel. No...

Mu. M'Ki.hont. (says the Echo) niny be cousiilered to have fairly cauglit Sir Henry Parkcs iu the matter of tlie Colonial T rcasurer being a bank director. The facts are simple — namely, that Sir Henry l'arkes not long ago moved a resolution to the effect that it was inconsistent for a responsible Minister, a member of tbe Government, to be a director of a large company trading iu inouey ; and that, in spite of having done his hest to carry this resolution throueli the House, Sir Henry lias not objected to his Treasurer being a director of the City Bank. The case is made all the more remarkable bccauso Mr. Watsou had of his own accord brought the matter J before his colleagues, ' evidently, ' says Sir Henry, ' with the intention of retiring either from the Ministry or from the bank,' But the Premier was in a gonerouc mood, and dismissed lii* Treasurer's difficulty with a word. Aud what, is his defence ? That tlie Assembly rejected bis resolution by a very large majority, and that, t...

GREAT FIRE AT HONGKONG. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 January 1879

GREAT FIRE AT HONGKONG. A terrific lire took place at Hongkong on Christmas Da}'. It began at 11 o'clock at night, in Endicolt-lane, in a house occupied by a European named Fisher. It extended to tbe north side of Queen's-road, and, crossing the street^ spread rapidly up Peel, Cochrane, and Graham streets : also Langman-lane, Gil man-street, aud the Bazaar. Al though the insufficiency of the supply of water to quell the fire had been demonstrated by tho destruction of several streets, it was not until the morning that gunpowder was first used, and not even then sufficiently. The Civil Hospital was destroyed, also the police-barracks. The gaol was saved only by the strenuous exertions of the police. The Queen's-roa-l, from Gil man's Bazaar to the warehouses, is a mass of ruins, and opposite from Shevely-street to Pekingra -street the same state of things presents itself. Above Queen's-road the whole neigh bourhood, bounded by Pokinger-street on the east, and Hollv-road on the south, ...

ATTEMPTED MURDER Owen Jones, a farmer, living at Taly Uyn, was recently committed for trial by the Anglesea magistrates on a charge of having attempted to murder Miss Ellen Pritchard, daughter of Mr. H. j Pritchard, a magistrate, living at Tres- ; ! cawen Hall, Llangefni. The circum stances were of a most extraordinay character. The prisoner's father, whose farm bordered on the Trescawen estate, died four years ago, and since then lie appeared to have been under tlie hallu cination that he had been robbed by his relatives, and that Mr. Pritchard was a party to the transaction. It was found necessary to send him to the Denbigh Lunatic Asylum, and Mr. Pritchard signed the commitment, a fact of which the prisoner had cogni sance. After a year's confinement^ lie was discharged, and nothing more was heard of him until recently, when he presented himself at Trescawen, and inquired for Mr. or Miss Pritchard. The latter went to the hall door, when he immediately fired at her twice, one shot...
