The Irish Question The address of the Irish Protestant Home Rule Association to the Protest ants of Ireland states : — 'It is noi our desire to separato ourselves from our Roman Catholic countvyuien; 'out we ask for your co-operation and support in order to counteract the gross misrepre sentations which allege that the protest ants of Ireland are unanimously opposed to the Irish policy of Mr. Gladstone. We reject with scorn the calumny that the lives or liberties of Protestant Irishmen will be imperilled by the re storation of an Irish Parliament. Mr. Gladstone proposes, by creating a re sponsible Irish Government, to enable us to re-establish social order in Ireland, and to provide free scope for the advance ment of the agricultural, manufacturing, and commercial industries of our country. Against the great statesman are mar shalled the combined forces of those territorial and class interests whose influence in maintaining the social conditions which have tended to raise rents and ...

Attempt to Wreck a Train. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 17 September 1886

Attempt to Wreck a Train. ? The railway authorities at Melbourne received a report on Saturday morning to the effect that an attempt had been made to wreck a train on the Gcelong line, about four miles from Williams town iunctio ?. A ganger early that morning discovered that the fishplates hud been seriously tampered with. The holts were partially wrenched off, and there were sigus of a deliberate attempt having been made to remove the rail. A party of platelayers was sent to the spot and tho line was repaived. The train from Melbourne to Geelong passed over tho spot shortly afterwards. The police, assisted by black traokers, investigated the affair. It was shown that several persons must have been engaged in the attempt. The trackers traced the foot steps of men to a waterhole, near which were found a cold chisel and a broken spanner, which may afford some clue to the offenders. Mr. Anderson, the traffic manager, visited the si at, and a close inspection has convinced him that this...

A Good bit ot Stuff. ' A vert Old Subscriber ' says the turf writer for the Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News) from Parramatta, N. S. W., writes to me as follows : — ' In your Circular Notes of February 18 there is one' about tne age to which horses live. The following you may, perhaps, consider interesting : — I have a horse, Jerry, foaled 10 th November, 1857, that I bought in January, 1868, for £10, and have had in regular work with occasional spells ever since. He is nearly thoroughbred, by Little John, from a Satellite mare, Satellite being an imported Arab. His history at length would be of great interest to horsey men ; but I will merely say that his dam was stolen while carrying him. He was stolen three times before he was five years old, and was for some time ridden by a notorious bushranger, 'Charlie Johnson.' With this man on his back he beat the police across country several times, on one memorable occasion carry ing Johnson, weighing 14 stone, 35 miles and over 17 ...
