The Travelling of Stock The Daily Telkobapii's Albnry correspondent wires on Thursday as follows : — No little concern is being displayed by stock-owners and dealers in consequence of the load stock inspector having been instructed tole*vy «, charge of 2-I per. mile nee 100 on all sheep travelling from Albury within four months of their arrival here. It is understood that this departure has arisen in consequence of the re cent judgment by the Wagga Police Court bench, under Section 4 ol the Diseases in ftlieep iict, under which a charge is imposed, ostensibly to pre vent tlie continuous travelling of sheep having no fixed destination and loafing on stock routes aud water reserves. It is contended by the owners and dealers that that the regulat^n was never intended to prevent the legitimate travelling of sheep to a new destination after being travelled to market. Hiis o}(bo is tho con struction of the section hitherto practised by the local inspector, who hadJSever imposed the charge...

Mr. Morley's Peroration. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 5 January 1889
BIr. Morlcy's Peroration. The following is from a speech delivered iii Birmingham ; and, whether readers agrea with Mr. Morley's politics or not, few will deny its sustained eloquence : ' What we have to do is to get as soon as we can to those questions which afieet the daily life of our people. Dominions, thrones. nrHieiiiali ties, and powers — I care little for them, ex cept as far as they are instrumental in mak ing more men happier, and happier in a bet ter way. Most of us here care, I think, only for politics as they directly or indirectly, re motely or immediately, lead to more light, more comfort being shed into the cottage and the home. We want to get — whether in this island or in Ireland, or in our wide spread realm all overt-he surface of the globe — we want to make the home, however hum ble it may be, better and brighter. If we Are animated by that spirit, if we walk with prudence, depend upon it that when the time comes, whether we live to be old or are out off early, w...
Horrible Crime by a Girl. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 5 January 1889
Horrible Crime hy a Girl. A Russian girl, Olg.i Bardianska, who is not yet 1 5 years of age, and a young man, Alexel Navarovicz, a clerk in her father's employ, with whom she had eloped, were on Friday arrested at a railway station on the Austrian frontier not far from Broody and handed over to tho Russian police, who were in pursuit of the fugitive couple. The crime with which the young girl is charged argues a shocking state of depravity and moral cal lousness. During the uiglit of the 2nd instant she is stated to have crept to the side of the bed in which her father was sleeping, and to have cut ids throat from ear to ear with a kitchen knife. This horrible act of parricide she committed out of revenge for the dis missal of her paramour by her father, who had taken that step in order to put a stop to the illicit connection which he discovered had sprung up between them.

C, Maddrcll, the the captain of the company, in commemoration of the opening of the butts, to which the shooters did ample justice. During the afternoon numbers of townspeople visited the scene of the shooting.

k Survivor or the Retreat from Moscow. Waterloo veterans are still to be found in France, but it is doubtful if there are alive at the present moment many old campaigners who returned from Moscow under Marat, in the disastrous retreat of the Graud Armv in November, 1812.

This veteran, who is of Polish origin — by name Zalenski— lives at No. 4, Eue Lecoq, Bordeaux, and is in receipt from the State of a magnificent pension of 40 francs a month.

The )inuie of the prosecutor was there fore formally called out, but he was not near at hand. Mr. Abbott accordingly discharged the prisoners, ami they stalked off joyfully witli n. mob of their countrymen.

CRUCIFIED HEARTS. CHAPTER I. A. QUEENLY ROSK. It stands upon a 1 leak and desolate Cornish moor, that grim old house of the Penrutlis. A neglected, gloomy abode, marked every where by U»e wreck of 'decay's eflacing fingers,' surrounded by a tanglfid wilderness, which it seemed the height of mockery to call a garden, and a bare liilly park lilled with stunted wind-tossed oaks iwid rank herbage, ?which afforded but a Beauty liveli hood for the sheep pastured there. The dreary park extends to the edge of the steep cliffs, where the waves of tlie stormy Atlantic thunder hundreds of feet below. A short distance from the foot of the crags nestles the tiny village of Penruth, whose in habitants, a wild and hardy race, earn at the best a scanty and precarious living by follow ing the occupation of fishermen. The desolate mansion, the barren park, the tumble-down cottages of the fisliing hamlet, together with a few hundred acres of poor, impoverished land, formed the sole heritage of Raymond...
An Extraordinary Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 5 January 1889
All Extraordinary Story. A very singular case of burglary came uuder the notice of the Fitzroy police on Tuesday. Early on New Year's Eve Mr. Lusty, of George-street, Fitz roy, reported that his premises had been burglar iously entered, and a valuable walnut drawing room suite, valued at L50, stolen. According to the Melbourne Ace au entrance had evidently beeu effected by the burglar prising the window O2-en with a chisel, and the furniture was removed through this outlet. The astonishing part of the affair was that the furniture was very heavy, and consisted of II pieces, and the fact that the things were removed without the inmates being aroused was a matter which caused considerable surprise to the police. Sergeant SI'Hugh took the matter iu hand, and directed Mr. Lusty's son to visit all the auction rooms in Col ling wood and the city, and in formation regarding the burglar}' was at once sent to all the police stations. The inquiries made did not, however, tend to give any clue...
