The Windsor Murder The special correspondent of the Argtu, who accompanied detective Cawsey to Western Australia, obtained the following information from constable Williams, who arrested mur derer Williams at Southern Cross. After referring to the engagement of Williams as mining engineer at Fraser's mine, the con stable said that as soon as Williams secured the appointment he commenced the prepara tions for his marrtage with Miss Rounsvell, and busied himself in constructing a house to receive the bride. There is a gruesome signi ficance in the circumstance that his lirst purchase of building materials was a barrel of cetucut, and that the floor of the main room was neatly ccmented uuder bis personal direction. Nearly all the fittings of tlic house were put up by himself, and the stains on his trousers were probably cortracted during (bis employment.

Another Love Letter. The following letter, written by Miss Rounsvelle, the young lady from Bathnrst, New South Wales, who had consented to link ber life with that of this murder-ghoul, shows what a power of fascination he must have possessed.

What People Say. MISS EVA BROWN, ALBURY, N.S.W. WRITES : " The following particulars of my case are famished on behalf of the afflicted, trusting tbey may be the means of restoring others to health : For eighteen months I was extremely debilitated, the doctors being of opinion that I had outgrown my strength. My disease is known in medical circles as anasmia or poverty of blood. Pains invaded all parts of my body ; I suffered from general languor, extreme weakness, listleesncss, de jection of spirits, indigestion, fickle appetite, and disturbed sleep. My body presented a bloodless appearancn ; my lips were pnle and the skin like wax, I was under several doctors who prescribed for me ; but their treatment did not alleviate my sickness. I imagined that my constitution was breaking np, and as the disease progressed I became more nervous and hysterical. My sufferings also greatly increased by a shock to the nervous system received last year, when a railway carriage in which I was seated...

I CIRCUS COMPANIES. AI.THOI'GH there lias already been one circus at Harcaldinc this week, Mr. Bidgeway's com pany attracted a large audience on Saturday night. The performances are said to be very good and novel.

We under stand there will be an exhibition on the race course next Saturday. There is a man in the town (William is his first name), who can do this performance, and it will be interesting to see if the Mexican broncho is the better man.

Squandering a Patrimony. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 5 April 1892
Squandering & Patrimony. A MONTAGUE F. LEVY, who has become celebrated as the boss spendthrift of Mel bourne, examined before Judge MoleBWorth, explained matters thus:-I became of age on the 4th July, 1891. My late father's name was Montague Levy. I am one of the persons entitled by his will to share in the property he left. I think my share was worth about £20,000, but I could get very little information from the trustees. I was entitled to my share after I became 23, but it was not payable until after my mother's death. On becoming 21, I was entitled to £3,100, and received £2,000 odd, the balance going to my mother to recoup her for money she spent on my account when I was under age. I paid all my debts except one-about £400-and spent the balance in pleasure. Some went in horse-racing. I used to lose so often that I forget how much 1 lost. I had no principal adviser in betting muttera, but sometimes I acted under Mr. Soqui's advice. After I became of age I gave Saqui a po...

Reducing Railway Rates. THE Hailway Commissioners, with a view to encouraging the meat preserving, boiling down, and other allied industries, have de cided to quote as a trial one-half the second class rates for the output from the establish ments, at which such industries are carried on. The products in regard to which the re duction will take effect arc-tallow, hides, preserved meats, &c.

Iw Vita sine Uteris mors est. 6ARCALDINE, TUESDAY, APRIL 5,1892. THE Parliamentary session of 1892 was opened on the 29th March by His Excellency the Governor. It was characterised by a disgraceful, but at the same time very foolish, demonstra tion by tlio mob wlio outwardly repre sent the great Australian Federation of Brisbane. These men, over whom it is said that the chiefs of the Labor Party exercise entire control and make use of to fire the bullets they prepare, assembled in great force in front of Parliament House, where they cheered with much fervor the idol and fugle man of the Federation-Mr. THOMAS GXASSEY, immediately afterwards groaning and hooting Sir IIKNRT NOEMAN". The local leaders of the unions tell us that groaning at a pub lic personage is the popular method of expressing disapprobation of his public acts, and that the person to be dis tinguished by this insensatedemonstra tion may be hooted and jeered when ever he appears, whether it is as a citizen doing his bus...

" He intends to order that each pass issued shall be pre sented at a ticket window whenever the holder wants to travel, and that a ticket shall be then given to him for his journey, the fact being duly noted in the departmental books. ] Once a month these entries of passes issued will be ...

IET. Ryaa's Maidea Speech. ? IK the debate on the address-in-reply, tho newiy-elected member for the Barcoo made his maiden speech iu the House# It was acknowledged as a most temperate address, and was listened to by a full House. It was in great contrast to Mr. Hoolan'a who while he was addressing the Assembly could barely keep a quorum together. Mr. Ryan said he had not intended to speak at such an early stage; but he wished to reply to some re marks which had fallen from Mr. Annear regarding the unionists. .He first claimed indulgence-(hear, hear)-and assistance of the House, as lie was not up in the practice of Parliament. (Hear, hear.) He was there to assist iu bringing Queensland bock agaiu to its natural prosperous channel (hear, hear); but from experience on sugar plantations of Kanaka labor, ho kuew that that would not bring it flbont. There were at the present time Kanakas in the Northern, Central and some parts of Southern Queens land, on the Warrcgo, who came into com pe...
