THE CAT WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 3 April 1874
THE CAT WANTED. Tuie records of our police courts oo casionally bring to the seeoothing surfaceo evidence of the revolting and obscene reptiles which exist in tho lowest depths. A powerful bruto named, John Marlow, a taiior, an excellent tradesman and able to Searn high.wags, prefers to wallow in a_.drankennoss and riot. Unfortunately, a poor miserable creature is tied to him under the sacred name of wife, and the brutal instincts of this drunken wretch made her his butt. His favorite amuse ment was making her sit on the fire, which he varied by sousing her in water and:kicking her until the woman was a mass of burns, bruises and cuts. He allowed her little or no clothing, his house was without furniture or bedding, and the life of his victim, who now lies at the M-.Melbourne Hospital, is despaired of. This human monster is brought before a bench of magistrates at the City Court, and the only punishment he gets is an order to finda sureity in £50 to keep the peace towards his wife f...
CAB ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 3 April 1874
CAB ACCIDENT. A singular, and what might have boon a very serious accident, occurrod to one of the Hotham cabs on Wednesday evening, about six o'clock. A buggy and one of the cars were going down Elizabeth street at a rapid pace, when, near the corner of Lonsdalo strooet, the driver of the buggy suddenly turned round and struck the car with great violonco, completely cap. sizing it, smashing the front portion to atoms, and doing considerable damago to the covering. Fortunately no person was hurt in either vehicle, and we understand the owner of the buggy was solely to blame, and. will consequently have to pay the costs.

THE PIG MARKET." Some time since a number of the in habitants of Elizabeth street north, reo siding in the vicinity of the pig market, petitioned the local, Board of- IHealth to removo the market, as it was injurious to the health of the neighborhood.

MR. BURTT AND THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 3 April 1874
MR. JBUITT AND THE AD V.El. TISEIR. During Mr. Burtt's meeting at Carlton, the other evening, that gentleman stated, although the accusation brought against him by the Advertiser, of having used the pronoun . " I" on sixty occasions in his printed address was correct, yet he excused himself on the ground that Mr. Munro acted in a similar manner during the doe livery of his speech at Hotham. -The cases are entiroly different. - Mr. Munro was reported verbatim, in the first person, and his speech occupied four columns. Therefore the use of the personal pronoun was unavoidableo. But Mr. Burtt used it through excessive and inflated vanity. Again, Mr. Burtt was guilty of another misstatement. Ito asserted that the last election expenses wero £500, thus leading anyone to suppose that hhadha paid thiat amount. He also boasted, in his precious effusion, that he had paid " all his elec tion expenses." This is not the fact. He only assumed ltho responsibililty of do fraying half of them. The ...

Oh, Cuckoo canr'n thou find thy way To tho far distant South h; 'Twould hoeer me now to hoar thy lay, As oft it cheor'd my youth; Oft have I linton'd to thy song In April, May, and Juno; But oh the time now seems so long Sinoo I've hoard your swoot tuno. The memory of my childhood Steals o'er me in my ago; Whon first I heard thoo in the wood I thought your song soom'd straugo; HIow oft I've mook'd you as you su.g, Hligh on tho lneafy bough, Till hill and vale with echo rung Ans onward sped the plough. Thou harbinger of joyous apring, I shol no more behold Theeo soaring on thy rorial w 'g, That glitters bright as gold; Oh, no, nor nover hear thoo say Cuckoo-ouckoo no moro, Nor cou you flit from spray to spray, As oft I dld of yore. A world of sea parts you and me ; Yea, and friends I love dear; Believo me I'd be glad to sco And hear you overy year ; Oh, but, alas i that cannot beo Mly strength with years now fail ; A long farewell I bid ° e then And doar...

S DESEASED t MEA?T. During the sitting of the City Council on Monday, the Market Committee sub mitted a report recommending that as there appeared to be some eorror' in the finding of the council depriviing Mr. nthesr of hiEs stall js,..h-meat market, the same should be rescinded, so far as to leave him in possession of one stall. Councillor Moubray, in bringing this mat ter under the noticeof the concil, said he desired to withdraw the report, in order that time might be given for the committee to make full inquiry into the statements contained in a report which he that day received from Mr. Cashmere, the inspector of the meat-market.
