The stranger reoresented himself as a detective from Melbourne on leave of absence, and on his way to Giblins', Break-o'-day, to shoot rabbits. About eleven o'clock, he suadenly pre. sented a revolver, demanded money, and commanded them to show bim through the house. Mr Field said there was no money to be had, whereapoa the fellow snapped his revolver at the barman, but the pistol did.not go off. The stranger then loaded his revolver, and immediately decamped.

A VEGETARIAN'S TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 26 May 1870

A VEGETARIAN'S TROUBLES. A ' Pythagorian ' writes to the ' Pall Mall Gazette,' lamenting the difficulties he has to encounter in carrying out his principles. He says-' Let a man now-a-days, whether it be from liking, or medical advice, or religious scruples, differ in diet from his neighbours, and he will undergo tribulation. Philan thropic horse eaters will testify how great is the odium incurred by those who would bring about a revolution in the matter of viands. And yet they strove rather to increase than to diminish the consumption ofl fiesh. What chance, then, has the Pytha- gorean ? An idea may be formed from a single case. The scene is a public restaurant not far from Regent Circus. Enter myself, a Pythagorean. I beckon a waiter, and would fain give orders in a confidential undertone; but the waiter, who has a prophet's soul, and has been watching me suspiciously, persists in maintaing such a distance that the murder must out pretty loun.y. I therefore say, ' Bring mne sone v...

We publish in another column some cor respondence on the question of police pro, tection for Reedy Creek, kindly placed at Sur disposal by the Hon. C. G 0Duffy, ier I reentative of Dalhousie. We must exi l,ress our entire disapproval of the action of Superintendent Green in this matter, as the r:!tcndnee of a police constable or two cons stantly at Reedy Creek is absolutely neces. sary for the preservation of the peace of that neighborhood. Indeed it was only a night or two ago a woman escaped being murdered at the place named, and after being beaten in a fearful manner the poor emaei tied creat thre had to travel to Kilmore, a distance of fifteen miles, to get that protection which she ought to have on the spot. Thursday last was observed as a close holiday by the truly loyal subjects of Her Most   Gracious Majesty. All the shops were closed by tacit consent, and the day being very fine all may be- said to have gone out of town. The principal centre of attraction was t...

THE G. H. SUPPLE TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 26 May 1870

THE G. H. SUPPLE TRAGEDY. The terrible incident of last Tuesday after- noon, by which one member of our commu- nity lost his life and another was placed in imminent peril, has caused more public excitement and has given rise to more speculation and discussion than any other event of the past ten years. Altogether, irrespective of the part which poor Walshe played in the transaction, the facts of it are full of interest. He (Walshe) came upon the scene by pure accident; he played his part in the tragedy nobly, and lost his life through his courageous devotion to the cause of law and order ; and it will be for the Legislature and the public to assuage the grief of his bereaved widow and orphans in so far as that can be done by pecuniary libel rality. No doubt their claim will be met as becomes a generous public and a prosperous country, and we may dismiss this part of the subject with the remark that the deceased man whose remains were on Friday interred in the Melbourne Cemetery unde...

E~NCOUNTE?I WITH 1NTI gVES AT FIJI; (FB.ON A CORRESPONDENT OF TILE FIJ r TIIES) On Monday, the 21st March, the Viti Levue natives working upon Messrs H. B. and R. W. Smith's plantation, at Uladrusi, Vanua L-ru, and numbering about sixty, watching their opportunity during the ab sence of Mr R. ; . Smith, rushed the dwell inghouse, and overpowered Mr I: B. Smith, who of course was quite unprepared for such an event. After giving him (Mr Smnith) some rough usage, endeavouring to stab him, and threatening to kill him, they ransacked the whole of the premises, taking away everyl thing they could carry, consisting of a large quantity of trade, fourteen muskets, aumiuw nition, personal effects, &c, and retired to the neighbouring town of Na Baka. These men have been out about four mor.ths at this place, and have been conspicuous for their idle and insolent behaviour. About four weeks since they assaulted and abused Mr I.

"TH1 LADY OF THE KEY" -~---s------ One of the Paris journals announces the death, at Versailles, of a Russian lady who. appeared in the drawing rooms of Paris in 1848 and 1849, and was nicknamed the " Dame de la Clef."- She died, aged 45, in the most complete solitude: It is said that her howband, who was. much older than she, came to see1ter for a week o.twoo every six months, and went awvay again no, one knew whither.

MELBOURNE MORALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 2 June 1870

MELBOURUXE MORALITY. (Rambler,' in the ' Bendigo Independent,' sug ests sarcaatically that the sub committee of the Society for the Promotion of Morality should not have confined their attention to the night bouses. 'Tihey should have gone,' he writes, ' over the way to the dress circle of the Theatre Royal. It was a " fashion. able"' night, and they would probably have seen many paragons of propriety there matrons with no jackets on at all, and modest maidens in the " fulll dress" of a skirt, a corset, and a pair of shoulder straps. If ladies with the nothings on, may show their bare bodies in a theatre, what is the sense of such a row about six girls exhibiting a pop tion of their covered feet and legs in the parlour of a, public house? It's a queer world, my modest masters; ut before you attempt to reform it by blaokguarding a few publicly inoffensive girls, look to your wives, your daughters,, and their dress. Observe them well in ballrooms, and see if you can, find nothing to r...

IS GENIUS HEREDITARY? [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 2 June 1870

IS GENIUS HEREDITARY? The question is Mr Galton's. It is the last and wost perplexing of scientific conun' drums. Can you breed a race of lawyers, of statesmen, of metaphysici?ns, of orators, and of soldiers, as you breed racehorses and Leiceatersbire sheep, by a process of a'atuyral selection ? Is. it entailed in the blood, or is it the development of personal character ?. At the first blush of course these questions look as those upon which the schoolmen of the Middle Ages were in the habit of exer cising their wits or those which the trouba dours of Province and Languedoc used to start for discussion before the fair dames of the Courts. of Love. Yes or no-it is a question that leads to nothing; and the canny Scot who. with a e perhaps it is, per, haps it is unt," pronounced it a riddle, and not a question of philosophy or science, pro, babiv anticipated the criticism of most people; yet. but for riddles and conundrums of this kind what would amiable and intelli. gent people do to...

A HUNTING PAR'TY STRICKEN DOWN BY DIPTUERIA.

The party (or which was the iniiformart, a Frenchman, who speaks En'glish imperfectly), set out with two horses and a punt about Christmas, upon a huntirg and fishing expedition in the wilderness near the American line. The party were well equipped with guns, traps, fishing tackle, and provisions intending to spend a month or two in the uuinhab.ted region. The first two weeks they had good luck and some fine sport, capturing several otter, mink, sable, &c. and making a good catch of trout in the lakes.

VICTORIAN PARLIAMENT, In the Legislative Council, on Tuesday, Mr I-igbett gave notice that, next Tues day, he would draw the attention of the Commissioner of Customs to the reduction made by the Treasurer in the amount of £5000 allowed for the expenses of the Council, tLe sum set down on the Estimates for this year being only £4000. The £5,000, he stated, wari fixed by the Constitution Act, and therefore the Treasurer had no power to interfere with it. He further said that, if the Treasurer had the power to reduce the amount, he might also get rid of the State aid question by reducing the money voted as State aid gradually, year by year, until the aid was abolished. MAr A'Beckett stated that he would reserve any remarks on the matter until Tuesday next. Mr O'Shanassy said there had been another sum taken off the Estimates without any authority. The House went into committee on the Scab Bill, and passed all the remaining cluses. The bill was reported to the House, and the report was ...

A DARING FEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 2 June 1870

SA DARING- FEAT. One of the most. wonderful robberies ever perpetrated-wonderful, at least,.when one considers the means at the disposal of the robber-was the achievement of a French man, who, for a long time after it, was re cognised in his profession as the " King of the Bandits " His claim to this title was based on a single exploit-the robbing of a diligence, which feat he not only planned, but carried into successful execution without any assistb ance whatever. To do this he made all his arrangements with the most careful com pleleness and, we may be sure, fixed a night for the attack when the coach carried .a freight worth robbing He studied closely the country through which the journey was to be made and selected a point on the road where there was a very steep hill, with hedges and underwood at either side. He then procured a number of stout sticks about the length and thickness of the barrel of a gun. These he stuck into the hedges, letting the ends of them appear, as if th...
