Novelist. DAYS OF CRIME AND   YEARS OF SUFFERING AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY.     (Reprinted from "The Australasian" of 1867 by Special Permission.) CHAPTER XXXVI. AWAITING TRIAL.   It is probable that my reader feels some sort of curiosity to know the particular events which led to my being so completely surprised by the guardians of the law, and so I will at once narrate them.   The shopman at the Yellow Slipper was, as I have already related, a companion of mine on Cockatoo Island. We had often together (in fancy) stuck up mails in that delightful seminary. The peculiar manner in which the Portland mail had been robbed was there familiar to us both, as far as conversation could make it. The shopman, remembering these things, and seeing me well furnished with cash, thought it very possible that I might be one of the mail   robbers. The boots I left in the shop with   him were a new pair of kangaroo-ski...

CHELTENHAM POLICE COURT. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 7. (Before Messrs. Allen and Brown, J's.P.) BREACH OF BY-LAW [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 10 December 1887

CHELTENHAM POLICE COURT. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 7. (Before Messrs. Allen and Brown, J's.P.) BREACH OF BY-LAW Senior-Constable Cowan as the Inspec- tor of Nuisances for the Shire of Moor- abbin, proceeded against W. Dale, for carting nightsoil during prohibited hours. Mr. Crisp appeared for complainant, and Mr. Croker, instructed by Mr. Gillot appeared for the defence. Mr. Croker, at the outset, raised a technical objection to the summons. He said that the stamp was improper by it bearing the initials " F. L," which was not the initials of the Clerk of Court. The law provided that the clerk of the court was the only person that could legally cancel the stamp. Mr. Crisp said that this was a mere frivolous objection, and did not in any way affect the validity of the summons. As a mere matter of fact the summons bore a cancelled stamp, and the cancel- ling of the stamp was a perfectly minis- terial act. If the stamp was improperly initialled, the person who so initialled or cancelled the s...

THE CADET'S ENCAMPMENT [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 17 December 1887

ITHE CADET'S ENCAMPMENT The first encampment of the Cadets of this colony was held at Elsternwick, and commenced on Wednesday evening, and will be brought to a close this evening. The idea of the establishment of Cadet Corps owes its origin to the late Minister of Defence, the Hon. Lieutenant-Colonel Sargood, M.L.C., and this encampment, the first that has been pitched in Australia, marks in a wonderful manner the progress of the system. When it was first mooted that these corps should be formed they were reckoned by a large number of persons as the outcome of a fadl. but now the excel lent effect of the training and discipline upon the youths, are admitted on all hands. and the system has now become a strongly established and highly popular institution. The various cadet corps now represent a strength of some 3,500 boys, and the most of these for some time past have had the op portunity on special occasions of going through both battalion exarcises and brigade movements.

JUNKETINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 17 December 1887

JIINKETINCS. Oonsidtrable surprise and dissatis faction his been created in the minds of honiorable members of the'legisla ture on discovering that sundr par liumentary junketings which were supposed to have come out of'the pri vate pockets of theiir promoters, have been paid; out of the piblic purse. Mr Gilhes had to "bownbp th to this and the leadei of the Opposition~ ery properly denounced the whole buisi ness as dishoniest.

OUR OPEN COLUMN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE LEADER. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 17 December 1887

OUR1 OPEN COLUMN. ---o TO THE EDITOR OF THE LEADER. Sir,-Observing with what vigor and zeal you assist any measure that is for public good, I take the liberty of trespassing on your kindness by asking for the insertion of this in your next issue, calling attention to an institution that is causing annoyance and a nuisance to the community. I allude to the " Herlingham Racecourse," which, for the last three or four months, has held meetings on an average of one a fortnight, under the rules and patronage of the V.R.O., and, according to the annexed paragraph taken from the Argus of the 12th inst., we are threatened with what is likely to prove a most olbjectionable nuisance, and a disgrace to the district. I imagine the most infatuated advocate of horse racing would have ahard matter to prove that the encouragement of such enterprises elevates racing as a pastime, or benefits any respect able community. What I admire most is the extreme modesty of the proprietor in being satisfied wit...

While o'er his couch, the wrathful' billows leali :And mighty windsoroar fron the darkened Still may his head on thy cool weeds be pressed, Far doswn where thou dost endless silence keep. Oh when, slow moving through thy spaces Sdim, Some scaly monster ecaks its coral cave, ':And pausing o'er the sleeper, stares with grim, Dull ejyes a momient downward throtigh the wave 'Then let thy pale, green shadows curtain hi , - And.swaying senafllowers hide his lonely grave. -James B.
