TRAGICAL FATE OF A LION TAMER. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 6 May 1865
TRAGICAL FATE OF A LION TAMER. A letter from Wurtzburg, Bavaria, in the Petit Journal, gives the following doubtful account of a scene said to have' taken place in that town on the 25th ult.:—u A French man named Soulages, a native of Colmar, has for some time past been e;diibiting, with great success, at Wurtzburg, as a lion tamer. On the day above-mentioned he entered a den containing a lion jyid a lioness, and made them go through various performances. The spec tators loudly applauded. Elated by these plaudits, Soulages determined to do some-* thing more extraordinary, and for that pur pose he collected in one den a lion, a lioness, a white bear, two black bears, four hyenas, two wolves, and a tiger. He then entered himself, whip in hand, but the door was scarcely closed when the tiger made a spring at the lion and the white bear. This was. the signal of a terrific struggle between all the beasts, who appeared at once to recover their natural ferocity. Soulages, hoping to intimid...

DREADFUL MURDER BY MONKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 6 May 1865
DREADFUL MURDER BY MONKS. Accounts have been received from Catania of an atrocious deed committed by two monks in the province of Messina. It appears that two abandoned-friars had succeeded in decoy ing into their inonastry a young girl, who in due time became enceinte. Struck with con sternation, and fearing exposure, they at at once thought upon measures for ridding themselves of such dangerous evidence, com promising their chastity and reputation. Saving again induced the poor girl to. enter the precincts of the convent they secretly slew her, and, seeking to destroy every trace of their murderous deed, they carried the body of their victim to the crypt. There they placed the corpse in an old coffin, having previously removed the former tenant,' and interred it m ail old grave. The coffin con taining the new body was then replaced hastily, and the monks withdrew to their cells, rich in the belief that no eye had watched theirproceedings. Fate had other wise decreed. It so happene...

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 6 May 1865
TASMANIA. The discovery of a paying goldfield "has not yet been announced. Mr Hargraves hasacon cluded his examination of the Fingal district and is now prosecuting his researches in the north-western part of the island, but the season, will soon be too far advancedfor such explorations. The visit of Mr Hargraves will cost the colony in one way or. other from. £1500 to £2000, the probable result being a report stating that he bad not found a paying alluvial gold-field; that unHke sofne of the wonderful geniuses who aspire to public position in Launceston, he couldn't make one ; that there are quartz reefs yielding gold, but to what extent is uncertain; and that the old Midland -Quartz Crushing Company blundered.
