GENERAL IGNATIEFF. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke and Mornington Journal — 6 June 1877
GENERAL IGNIATIEFF. The Paris correspondent of tih Times, in speaking of General Ignatieff, has the fol lowing :-" It is necessary to have seen and heard this wonderful diplomatist to under stand with what marvellous facility he dilates on the most varied themes. Let ten callers see him, and to each of them he would relate a new policy, maintaining only some general points, which are for him like fixed flagstaffs, to which he attaches the capricious streamers of his varied narratives. Were the ten unfortunate interviewers, on leaving him to compare notes, they would be positively amazed at this inexhaustible versatility, which intentionally obscures questions in proportion as it professes to clear them up, and when it likes, confuses the simplest things with the air of explain ing or commenting on them. All this, too, is done naturally in the most unpretentious fashion, without any apparent subtlety, look ing you straight in the face, and with an animation and fluency seeming to exc...

D; J. Howes, late Secretary of the Shire ot Belfast, was brought before the local police court on Mlonday morning by the police on a charge of burning down the Shire chambers. After hearing the evidence of Sergeant Darcy, which only referred to the arrest, Howes was remanded for a week, to give time for the preparation of evidence for the defence. In answer to a question, the Bench said they would accept bail in two sureties of £200 each. Up to the pre sent time the sureties have not been obtained. A peculiar occurrence happened at Foot scray recently. Dr. Cobb was giving a lesson with the gloves in "the noble art" to one of his sons aged eight. The Doctor did not think it necessary to take off his spectacles, and had one of his eyes seriously injured by a "straight one" from his young hopefhl. It seems as if the remarks of Mr, G. P. Smith of Hawthorn is in part about to be fiulfilled. A petition has-been presented to the Speaker against the successful "liberal" at Sandhurst taking ...

THE MURDER OF MR. BAILLIE. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke and Mornington Journal — 6 June 1877
-THE MURDER OF MR. BAILLIE. Some time since attention was drawn to certain rumours in connection with this subject, in which it was stated that the' real murderer of Mr. Baillie, in Fiji, was now in Victoria. Since the, rumours appeared.in print, tho names of certain persons have been mentioned. in: connection with the fearful crime, and the detective police have been making enquiries in the matter. Dr. Macartney, who was pointed at, writes to the Herald on the subject, as follows: "Sir,-In the face of the para graph in the Age, referring to the Baillie murder, and otherwise rivalling the blackest page in the annals of Newgate, it would be affectation in me not to recognise that lam the alleged villain, and it would be cow wardice in me not to take up the challenge. Out of a hatred of parading sickening narrations before the public, I have refrained as long as it is possible from appearing in print. But thinigs have taken such a rapid turn, I believe the public has a right to speak....
SERIOUS STABBING CASE. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke and Mornington Journal — 6 June 1877
SERIOUS STABBING CASE. A very serious case of stabbing 'occurred in Richmond on Tuesday, May 29, and it is feared that the injured man is not yet out of danger. The circumstances are as follows : On the evening in question, about half past seven, Samuel Dobbin, a saddler by trade, a married man, was walking along Goodwood street with a girl named Warmingham, with whom he had been on terms of some inti macy, when her brother met them, and took her to task for her conduct, saying, "If you have any respect for the family you will leave the man." Dobbin insisted upon taking her away with him, and then young Warmingham told him sharply to take his hands off her. At this stage a friend of Warmingham's named Alfred Bishop, a butcher by trade, aged thirty years, came up and interfered, saying to Dobbin, "If you are a man you will let her go home along with her brother." The reply was some insulting remark, and Bishop then struck Dobbin; the two men then closed, and directly afterwards Bisho...
