A TERRIBLY STRANGE BED. [CONCLUDED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 27 June 1874
A TERRIBLY STRANGE BED. [CONCLUDED.] &nbsp; NOW, for the first time, I was able to move,to rise from my chair, to consider of how I should escape. If I betrayed, by the smallest noise, &nbsp; that the attempt to suffocate me had failed, I was &nbsp; certain to be murdered. Had I made any noise already? I listened intenily, looking towards the door. No! No footsteps in the passage out- side ; no sound of a tread, light or heavy, in the room above—absolute silence everywhere. Be- &nbsp; &nbsp; sides locking and bolting my door I had moved an old wooden chest against it, which I had found under the bed. To remove this chest (my blood ran cold, as I thought what its contents might be!) without making some disturbance was impossible ; and, moreover, to think of escap- ing through the house, now barred-up for the night, was sheer insanity. Only one chance was left me—the window. I stole to it on tiptoe. &nbsp; &nbsp; My bedroom was o...
" IT'S ONLY A DROP !" [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 27 June 1874
" IT'S ONLY A DROP !" It was a cold winter's night, and though the cottage where Ellen and Michael, the two survi- ving children of old Ben Murphy, lived, was always neat and comfortable, still there was a cloud over the brow of both brother and sister, as they sat before the cheerful fire ; it had ob- viously been spread not by anger, but by sorrow. The silence had continued long, though it was not bitter. At last Michael drew away from his sister's eyes the checked apron she had applied to them, and taking her hand affectionately within his own, said, " It isn't for my own sake, Ellen, though the Lord knows I shall be lonesome enough the long winter nights and the long summer days without your wise saying, and your sweet song, and your inerry laugh, that I can so well remember—ay, since the time when our poor &nbsp; &nbsp; mother used to seat us on the new rick, and then, in the innocent pride of her heart, call our father to look at us, and preach to us against be...

RELEASE OF THE PRISONER GARDINER. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 4 July 1874
RELEASE OF THE PRISONER GABDINER. Minute of his Excellency Sir Hercules Robinson, and Proceedings of the Executive Council, with respect to the release of the Prisoner Gardiner. &nbsp; I HAVE to lay before the Executive Council six petitions and memorials which have been ad- dressed to me with regard to the proposed mitiga- tion of Gardiner's sentence. These representa- tions, viewed in connection with the public discussions which have recently taken place on &nbsp; the same subject, have led me very carefully to consider whether any fresh facts have been brought to light which would justify me in dis- appointing now the expectations which I raised when this prisoner's case was first submitted to me—about eighteen months ago. &nbsp; &nbsp; It is true that no positive compact was then made with the prisoner, or any decision given in the nature of an obsolute remission, which would of course have been irrevocable ; but it is beyond question that a hope ...

THE Governor's minute in reference to the release of Gardiner, which we publish in another column, deserves the most serious consideration. We pass over the imputations upon the late Chief Justice—that he sanc- &nbsp; &nbsp; tioned an unusual and improper remission of the sentence of one of "the most promi- nent and daring of the bushrangers," and that his " sentence of thirty-two years passed upon Gardiner was imposed at a time of great excitement, and his punishment would seem to have been measured more in view of the crimes with which he was supposed to have been connected, than with reference solely to those of which he was actually convicted." Unless the glittering temptation eo skilfully put forward by the Ministry towards the close of the session, effectually seal the lips of Sir Alfred Stephen, we have no doubt of his ability successfully to vindicate his acts as Chief Justice, and particularly the sentence which he passed upon Gardiner. The Governor acknowle...

THE GOVERNOR'S SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 4 July 1874
THE GOVERNOR'S SPEECH. We extract the following jeu d'esprit from the Evening Post :— &nbsp; We have the best authority for saying that no correct report of the speech of his Excellency the Governor, delivered at the prorogation of Parlia- ment on Thursday last, has as yet been published. The following is the authentic text:— " Honorable Old Women of the Legislative Coun- cil, and Honorable " Hounds,, of the Legislative' Assembly. 1. I am jolly glad to get rid of yez. 2. You undertook to do a lot of work, and have done nothing. Just see if yez can't get an idea or two from your wives and families and consti- tuencies. 3. The Land Law is working fine. I've re- ceived a hundred and fifty thousand pounds from that source alone. 'Tis true Joachim and O'Shannassy will spend as much in deciding what the Land Law means, but that's nothing to you or me. 4. You are both great fools not to pass the Bills for amending the laws by which you were sent to represent the people. If you had ...
ITEMS BY THE SUEZ MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 4 July 1874
ITEMS BY THE SUEZ MAIL. WOOL.—Messrs. Jacomb, Son and Co. report :— &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Referring to our previous reports, as to opening of the current series of public sales of colonial wools, we have now to confirm the same. More than one-third of the large stock in hand has now passed the hammer, at prices which may on the whole be deemed satisfactory ; some 7000 bales thereof have been bought in, but a great part has been since placed privately. French purchases have been very large. When the market once settled down after the opening an accession of spirit accrued, and prices somewhat improved, a lower range than in March having invited many fresh customers. In comparing present rates with those of March sales it must be remembered that during the last few days of that series a fall in prices occurred to a level, for some descrip- tions, nearly with the reduced range we now have to quote, and notably in the case of middle Aus- tralian wools. Generally s...
