THE LATE MR. JAMES ASCOUGH J.P. COMMUNICATED. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 16 May 1874

THE LATE MR.'JAMES ASCOUGH J.P. COMMUNICATED, IT is with deep regret that we have to record the sadden decease of this gentleman, which happened on Saturday night last. It seems that himself and lady were on a visit to their daughter and son-iu-law at Richmond, whither he had walked during the day. Their inten- tion was to return by the late train to Windsor. Being near the time, they started for the station, Mrs. Ascough going first with Mr. Stewart. Mr. Ascough was following them up as quickly as possible. All at once whilst turning the corner of the street op- posite the Royal Hotel, he staggered and fell backwards. Messrs. Tomkinson and Mitchell seeing him, picked him up, still breathing, and carried him into the hotel where he was at once recognised. By this time Mrs. As- cough had reached the station house with Mr. Stewart, not knowing what had befallen her husband. She was at once sent for, as also Dr. Jones, but before they reached the unfor- tunate gentleman life was extinc...

Coton Calït. RICHMOND VOLUNTEERS.-On Sunday morning last, tins corps, under the command of Captain Holborow, attended Divine service in St. Peter's Church. The men had cn their new uniform ; the bard, which has recently been organized by amateur performers, was very creditable to a country town. After the usual service for the day, the Rev. Dr. Woolls preached a sermon from Matt, xxvii. 54, in whiph he dwelt principally on the scene witnessed by the centurión, the effect which it produced on Ms mind; and the lesson which military men of ali ages should learn from his words. There was a very large con- gregation present. AN UP-COUNTBY MAGISTRATE.--The South- ern Argus is responsible for the following.-? A J.

CHAPTER XIII. LADY DONCASTORE BEGINS TO THINK THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 16 May 1874

CHAPTER XIII. LADY DONCASTORE BEGINS TO THINK THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG. It was past twelve o'clock when Lord Fin" more reached the maternal mansion, and as it was his father and mother'« habit to retire at half-past ten, he greatly hoped to escape any questionings or rebukes. But he had reckoned without his host this time. As the butler took his hat, he said, ' My. lady is waiting for you in the drawing-room.' The young man's heart sank at Sais an- nouncement. With all her good qualities, the Countess, was ambitious, and the least degree arrogant, as people ' born in the purple '--so to speak -are apt,to be. ' She had been a duke's , daughter before she became an earl's wife ; and though, she was willing to sacrifice some of her prejudices to obtain à,rich marriage for her son, the kind I of intrigue in which he had been'engaged of I late would have seemed absolutely unpardon- able. His fear was that she had discovered his j secret ; but her first words relieved his mind ! of this d...

FRANCE AND ITALY. [Journal def Débat»-Paris, Feb. 16th.] CARDINAL Antonelli having (writes M. John Lenioinne) officially denied the authenticity of the Bull published by the German papers, and the object of which was to regulate the arrangements of the future Conclave, we have no longer any reason to trouble ourselves about a document declared false. Yet leaving it aside, and considering only the subject with which it dealt, namely the free election of the future Pope, we do not see that there would be anything surprising or irregular in the measures which the present Pope is said to think it his duty to adopt in order to secure the choice of his successor, and, indeed, it is not denied that since the year 1870, arrange- ments of this nature have been made. It would not be the first time in the history, of the Church that a Conclave has been held out of Borne, and cirumstances may at any time occur in which the college of Cardinals may have to seek out side of the seat of the Pppacy...

®l)e Qlustralian. SATURDAY, MAY 23RD. 1874. THE Electoral Act Amendment bill has been read a third time, and transmitted to the Upper House for its concurrence. Of all the tinkering pieces of Legislature that has passed the Assembly this session, the bill in question is the worst. The Government them- selves acknowledged that there were many defects in it, and what else'could be expected when it is considered that the measure has been unseemly hurried through Committee. Mr. Garrett moved for the recommittal of the bill in order to correct some of its anomalies» but Mr. Parkes objected, trusting to the watchfulness of the other chamber to correct them. This, was a- very improper state of things to acknowledge, and by so doing the House had doubly denounced itself and was placed in a very delicate position. Mr. Fo.stcr in the course of a speech of 6ome moment said that Hon. members had passed a bill putting an endito their representative I existence two -y ears earlier than the term f...

Goulburn^ in the month of January last. From an examination of the mode in which Hawthorne stuck up Slocombe and tied him to! a tree, before cutting his throat, the police inferred at the the time y that he ( 1 Hawthorne) must have been the man who had murdered several other persons at different parts of the western and south- western districts, whose remains had been found tied up to trees in a similar manner« Photographs of tho prisoner were obtained and sent to the neighbourhood where thc murders had been committed; and in one or two instances the photograph was recog- nised as that of the person who was last seén in the company of the murdered man.

Instead of praying that evils may be averted, they are provoked they will come; the cricis is at hand, and it will be terrible. I pity you all, for you will have much to endure.'
