THE LATE MR G. P. SMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 14 December 1877
THE LATE MR. G. P. SMITH. It is rather a remarkable incident that two so intimate in life and holding such pro- minent positions in the colony as the late Mr. G. P. Smith and Judge Pohlman, should cease to breathe on the same day, and on the same day be buried. Such however, we regret to say, was the case. The following is a brief sketch of Mr Smith's life :-" George Paton Smith was born in London in the year 1827. Shortly after his birth his parents removed to Berwick-on-Tweed, where his childhood and youth were spent. In 1858 he came to Victoria, and went into business at Sandhurst. While there he began writing for the Press and studying for the bar. His first perma- nent engagement on the Press was as repor- ter on the Argus. He subsequently became sub-editor, but resigned that position to be- come editor of the Age. Later still he was editor of the Leader also. In September, 1861, Mr. Smith was admitted as a barrister to the Victorian bar. In 1865, Mr. Smith entered Parliament a...

Iel grass is now about ft. high, the std thick and juicy, and joined like cornstalk tihe leaves large and succulent, andthe heads from Gin. to Sin. long, and very full. The seed, which is exceedingnuscrs. ous, is of the oily nature of that of the burr clover, which in fact it closely re sembles. Mr. Clark is of opinion that it can be repeatedly cut, and is now making experiments. In Illinois it is customary to allow it to sow itself, which it does readily ; but ...

DREADFUL SHIIPPINC ACCIDENT & most distressing accident, reports the ,South Australianc Adv'ertiser, involving a serious loss of life, occurred at Port Wake field on Saturday evening shortly before sundown. Late in the afternoon the coast ing steamer Wakelfield arrived in Port Wakelield, having on board a large num ber of laborers who were bonod for the works on the Kadina and Barunga railway. The tide was running out,and consequently the Wakefield was unable to cross the bar, and cast anchor at about a mile from the wharf, a little" on one side of the river channel. A boat was lowered from the steamer, which was then aground in seven feet of water, to take the passengers on shore ; but owing to the anxiety of those on board to reach the wharf, this craft, which was only intended to carry about ten or twelve persons, was rushed, and either eighteen or nineteen jumped into her. The boat almost instantly began to take water, and before a return could be made she overturned, an...

But oven hero they were not permitted to rest quietly, and in the year 1795, according to the generally re ceived account, they were taken to IIavannah, in Cuba. From theWest India papers just to hand, however, it seems that it was not the real coffin that was sent to IIavannah, and on the 10th of last month there were great public rejoicings at St. Domingo, and a solemn act of recognition of the remains of" the illustrious and dis tinguished Admiral Don ChristopherColun bus."

TWO CHILDREN STRUCK. BY LIGHTNING. The Coorasboag correspondent of the ?ewCtcastle Herald reports that on Tuesday afternoon, November 27th, two children returning from school took refuge in a hollow white grmt tree, burnt out at the butt and quite charred. The age of the elder child was seven years, and of the younger five. They had been collecting sticks, and the mother having gone to milk the cows, only a girl of eleven years re mained to take care of the house. She was suddenly alarmed by the appearance of the younger boy, who dragged himself with difficulty along the path leading to the house, and who informed her that his brother lay, unable to follow him, in the hollow of a tree. She inunmmediately went to the place and found the boy attempting to rise, but quite unable to do so; he was insensible.

SUSPECTED MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 21 December 1877
SUSPECTED MURDER. Further researches into the circumstan ces attending the death of Richard Going at Rheola, on Thursday night week, have tended to deepen the impression that his death was caused by foul play, and that a: dreadful murder has been committed. The circumstances leading to this suspicion are detailed in our Rheala correspondent's letter in another column, and the state meats there made, coupled with the atro cious attack made on Monday week upon Mr Tomelty, postmaster, induce the belief that there are some very dangerous charac ters residing in the neighborhood. This is an instance in which the services of a de tective should be granted by the depart ment. It will be remembered that in the report of the enquiry held on Saturday week, touching the sad fate which befell the late Mr R. Going, it was stated that the de ceased was known to have a gold watch, chain, and other articles of jewellery, and that there was every reason to believe these articles were in his possessi...
