THE MALDON MYSTERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 October 1864

THE MALDON MYSTERY. Under this sensational heading several reports have been published in the journals, and public curiosity has naturally been excited as to the fate of the missing man,. Robert Jones, whose sudden disappearance, under painful and suspicious cir cumstances, has been the topic of conversation for some days past, both in Castlemaine and Maldon. Early yesterday morning the police received a telegram, to the effect that the body of Mr. Jones had been found hung to a tree a short distance     from Maldon, and that an inquest would be held at   two p.m.. We were unable, in consequence of pre vious engagements, to send a reporter to the inquest, but by the courtesy of the editor of the     Tarrengower Times we are enabled to state that the inquiry resulted in a verdict of suicide under tem porary insanity. It seems that the body, in an advanced state of decomposition, was found by a shepherd, named Foggarty, ...

CRUEL TREATMENT OF AN ORPHAN. Let it be known throughout Victoria that, for forty shillings, any ruffian so disposed can amuse himself by brutally ill treating — short oi murder — any poor orphan who may be so unfortunate as to bo placed under his control. For this small sum, too, various experiments can be tried in order to ascer tain the most ingenious mode of torture. The ex periments may take a very wide range, including semi-starvation, thrashings with a horsewhip, beatings with a stiok, peltings with clods of earth, blows with an iron 'bit and stirrup iron, or wich heavy, boots, imprisonment during the night in a shed or an outhouse, and tyings-down in a con strained position during the Sabbath, whilst the devout individual pours forth his thanksgivings at church for being placed in a position that enables him to indulge his humane propensities. ' Fined forty shillings' was the decision of the Melbourne bench of magistrates, on the 15th inst, in the case of the. man Board, cha...

Mr H. J;.'r Clark, in seconding the resolution, showed the opinion on the question prevalent in some quarters, by means of an extract from a letter he had received.from England. ' There was no doubt at all,' according to the letter, ' that the Western Australians desired the continuance of , transportation for the present ; and it was a gross case of bullying and uhneighborly op pression on the part of Victorians, that they should try to' : deprive their' fellow-subjects of what they wished, and had a perfect right to retain.'

It has evidently -been produced by -some volcanic notion, and although it does not. contain, Uko many others, any fossiliferous remains, its formation is characterised by a sufficient degree of singularity to render the spot highly interesting to those who pny any attention to the geology of the country.

THE IMPLEMENT YARD. Tho implement yard at the late National Agricul tural Exhibition presented to the nniniatod quite a bewildering appearance, so numerous were tho articles of unfamiliar shapo which in every direction challenged the attention. Tho first object to strike the unpro fessional eyo was an enormous windmill stationed nearly in tho centro of the ground, and which, perhaps, attracted more attention, from its pretentious size, than a dozen of the smaller but moro useful machines which surrounded it. Steam power, however, had its representatives, and, from our engraving, it will be seen that, in number at least, they had the advantage of their primitive arid more cumbrous competitors. There was an almost endless variety of reaping and winnowing machines, ploughs, threshing machines, chafC-outtors, bone-mills, mowing machines, drills, clod-crushers, harrows, grubbers and scarifiers, and a host of other implements, of which nine out of every ten visitors probably did not know ...
