RUSSIA IN THE EAST. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 5 April 1878

RUSSIA IN THIE EAST. Russian influence is pushing English in terests close at the Persian Court. The cor respondent of a Iamburgh newspaper says that during the last twelvemonth England has been continually losing ground in Persia and the interior of Asia, and that in nearly all the independent Asiatic States, English influence is being surpassed by that of Rus sia. He goes on to point out that it is a mistake to suppose that the object of the corps of observation which was posted by Persia at Gilan,opposite Bagdad, was mere ly to protect the Persian frontier against the incursions of armed Turks or Russianus. There is good reason to believe that if the Russians had required ass;stancein the Ar menian campaign, Persia would at once have declared war against Turkey; indeed, when things went badly with the Russians the Persian army at Gilan was increased to a force of S000 men, and preparations were made for crossing the frontier. He also asserts that it was only because Russia was aw...

BURNING A WOMAN TO DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 5 April 1878

BURNING A WOMAN TO DEATlJ. William White, fifty-nine, described as a builder's laborer, was indicted on the ] 1th February for wilfully and of malice aforethought killing and murdering Louise White, his wife, on 21st December last, at Leicester.. It appeared from the evidence that prisoner and his wife had some alter cation on the evening mentioned. The prisoner was undoubtedly the worse for liquor, but his wife, although very angry about something, did not appear to have been under the influence of drink. High words passed between them, and the man was heard by a neighbour and his wife to threaten that he would throw a paraffin oil lamp,which was at the time standing on a table, at his wife. The house at the time was in total darknmess, but a smash was heard by a person living next door, and on his rushing into the prisoner's house he found the wife,as he described it in his own terms, " like a statue surrounded by flames from head to foot." At the time of his entering the house th...

THE HORRORS OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 5 April 1878

TIIE HORRORS OF WALR. A military correspondent, writing from Constantinople on 28th January, says that the misery of the refugees baffles every at tempt to relieve it. The waggons are so crowded that little children are frequently trampled to death in them and found dead on the arrival of the train at the station. The roofs of the closed carriages are cover ed with refugees, and little children roll off them into snow. Planks are stretched across the buffers, and refugees sit thereon, in great peril of being thrown off. The iron crates for luggage which swing be tween the carriages are filled with pro strate refugees, who become so cramped with cold that they cannot be movedat the stations, and have to be fed through the bars of the crate. In one crate Colonel Blunt saw fifteen persons, one of whom had died on the road, but the rest were so much cramped and jammed to gether that the dead body could not be se parated from themselves by the living. When a trai*'ins s,±eefugees dare no...

MURiDER BY BURNING ALIVE. The Madras Standard of Apr.I 25th, reports the following as the facts of a case lately tried by the Session Court of Bellary, in which eight men were charged with hav ing caused the death of another. man by burning alive. This first prisoner, Vencan na Gowd, was the Reddi of the village where the outrage had taken place, and there appears to have existed a long-stand ing enmity between the deceased on the one hand,and the Reddi and the other pri soners on the other. Very early one morn ing a thatched shed belonging to the first prisoner's stackyard had caught fire, and burned for several hours. The second witness deposed, that while passing by he saw the deceased, who was carrying a pot of water on his head, seized upon by the prisoners, who hurried away with him to the burning shed,- where, after binding the unfortunate man with ropes, they cast him into the flames. Witness hurried back and informed the neighbours, who were assem bled at the spot, but were...

Russia finally declines to accede to the English demands, and the Congress is virtually abandoned. The situation is critical, but in official circles it is believed that war will be avoid- ed.

GALLIPOLI. The Daily Telegraph, remarking upon Sir Stafford Northcote's answer to Sir Charles Dilke, says that whether the lines of Gallipoli be within or without the neutral zone, the neck of the peninsula has now become a first-class British interest.   We have sent a squadron to the mouth of the Bosphorus, and it is perfectly secure, self-protected; but so long as the land lines are open to a possible enemy whose troops are stationed on two sides in post distance one day's easy march, and while the interior roads leading to the castles commanding a channel less than a mile abroad are avail- able to the occupants of Boulair, the posi- tion of our navy, if not unsafe, may any day become inconvenient. Admiral Horn- by's line of retreat is confided to the guard of two ironclads stationed off Gallipoli. But the Russian forces are at Charkor on one side and Urska on the other, neither body being more than five hours' march from the lines of Boulair. It depends on Muscovite...
