APPREHENSION OF A GANG OF GAROTTERS AT SHEFFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 6 May 1865
APPREHENSION OF A GANG OF GAROTTERS AT SHEFFIELD. The Sheffield detectives have succeeded, during the last few .days, in breaking gang of garotters and burglars, whohante committed several daring outrages in thai? town. On Saturday, two men were brought before the bench, on a charge of committing the daring outrage on Mr Burnby, coal agent to Earl Fitz wifiiam, which was of such an atrocious character as'to excite a genera' terror in the public mind. Mr Burnby lives in Broomhall-park, outside; of the town, arid' whilst he was within a few yards of his own door he was seized from behind and garotted in the usual manner, whilst two other men came in front of him and savagely assaulted him with a heavy bludgeon. The ruffians ~ directed their blows so as to disable Mr Burnbj, apparently utterly regardless of the consequences. He was left insensible, from dreadful wounds over the eyes,; the neck, and over the heart, and for several dayshis life was despaired of. He yet suffers seriously ...

AN EXTRAORDINARY CAREER OF CRIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 6 May 1865
AN EXTRAORDINARY CAREER OF CRIME. Alice Jones, 22 years of age, a good-looking young woman, and of apparent respectability, was charged, at the Middlesex Sessions, with stealing two sheets and other articles, the property of- Timothy Newton.

A SCOTCH MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 6 May 1865
A SCOTCH MARRIAGE. Apropos of theYelverton case, the following story is interesting as marking tlie peculiari ties of ^fae law of marriage in ■Scotland The history of the marriage of John Orr, of Barrowfeeldr late Town Clerk of Glasgow, is rather romantic, and I believe that it is little known7to the present generation of our citizens, the circumstance lining taken place more iiian fonr^re years and ten ago, when Mr Orr was quite ayoung'man. It happened . thus: There was a very handsome and well educated ypnng lady at that time in Glasgow, who was the jbosoni friend and intimate com panion-of Mr. Orr's sisters, Esther, Helen, Martha, and Janet, and was frequently invited by- those: ladies to pay them family visits, &lt;■ during the course of which Mr Orr fell deeply in love, and came under an obligation to marrvlipr hut the transaction, in the meantime. . I , was to be kept secret. So matters stood for some time; but a lengthened correspondence by letters took place between ...
AN ENOCH ARDEN OF REAL LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 6 May 1865
AN ENOCH ARDEN OF REAL LIFE. Among the criticisms wbich have been made on Mr Tennyson's poein of " Enoch Arden," it has been objected that it is a very improbable incident that Enoch Should have been able to live and to work in his native village so long without being recognised. The following true story, related by the Jacobite Dr W.illiam King, in the " Political and Literary Anecdotes of his own Times," shows that such an incog nita has really been kept up :— " About the year 17061 knew one Mr Howe, a sensible, well natured man, possessed of an estate of £700 or &lt;£800 per annum;. He married a young lady of a good family in the west of England; her maiden was Mallet; she was agreeable in her person and manners, and proved a very good wife. Seven or eight years after they had been married, he rose one morning very early, and told his wife he was obliged to go to the Tower to transact some particular business; the same day at noon his wife received a nqte from him, in whi...
VALUE OF HEN MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 6 May 1865
VALUE OF HEN MANURE. The Germantown Telegraph says:—" Lately we saw on the premises of a first-class farmer a well constructed hennery, though not at all complying with the condition which hen fanciers would impose. It was designed only for laying and roosting in ; and it at first seemed strange to find, at mid-day, with a cool atmosphere, the turkeys and chickens occupying it. They had free ingress and egress, and were not fed or watered in it; j yet the chickens always went there to lay. The secret was re\ ealed, however, when the proprietor informed us that he had it cleaned out every week. All the droppings of the fowls were scraped from the floor, which was an inclined plane, into a trough or receiver, from which they were shovelled and heaped up, and the place whitewashed once a-week. This required but little over half- an-hour, but the manure from last season was esti mated at 120 dols., and quite sufficient in quantity as an application to his entire crop of corn. As a rule,...

SHIPPING A DEAD WIFE AS BAD . EGGS. ; A very curious case came before the Birken head Magistrates on Saturday, February 11. On Thursday week, a man of decent appear ance (M'Hugfr flame )f left three cases at the Birkenhead ferry, stating that he intended to- take them over to Ireland, but had been disappointed in the steamer. The cases were labelled "eggs," and were to remain till called for. Some suspicion having been aroused, either by smell or otherwise, as to thecontents of one of the cases, Superintendant Hammond, of the county police, had it opened; on Friday week, when to the surprise of everybody the case was found to contain a coffin, .packed in straw, and on opening the coffin the corpse of a woman was disclosed. When M'Hugh called for the cases, on Satur* day morning-, he was asked as to thecontents, and declared that this one, in particularj only contained a few bad eggs, but ultimately, when he found that the case had been Opened, he admitted that it was the corpse of h...

A ST. PANCRAS PAUPER MAKING ■: MtS:#nJL.-^3rUG: : ARRAN^J^NTt The. guardians of the poor of St. Pancras have held' two investigations, respecting a: very, singular circumstance which has tran^ ; spired in .their workhouse.

To help Smart to prove his title, the master of the house, Mr Morrison, obtained the aid of a Mr Bishop, a; lawyer, and a member of the vestiy, and those two travelled to Leister shire to investigate the matter. What the result of this trip was did not transpire, but all events Smart made a will in which he left .£10,000 to Bishop, and, after the payment of some, legacies to those who had been kind to him, constituted the master of the house hi...
HORRIBLE CASE.—SWIFT v. SWIFT. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 10 May 1865
HORRIBLE CASE.—SWIFT v. SWIFT. _ This suit was instituted by a married woman, to restrain her husband from continu ing proceedings which be had commenced in the Divorce Court, or from making any other attempt to obtain the possession of her children, and to recover the arrears of maintejaance due under a deed of separation between the plaintiff and defendant. The separation arose out of a charge of indecent conduct made by the female child against her father, as to which there was medical and other evidence of a conflicting character. The Master of the Rolls delivered judgment this morning, and held that in this instance the deed was valid, and the covenant by the father to part with the children was binding. On the 10th of June, 1863, Sarah Anne, a daughter of the defendant, then a child of 7 years old, told her n^other that her father had criminally misconducted himself towards her. On the following day the mother took the child to Mr Marsh, a surgeon, residing in Newark, five mil...
A FATAL FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 10 May 1865
A FATAL FIRE. A sad event happened at Sowerby-briclge, in the West Riding of Yorkshire, on Friday last, February 3. At an early hour on the morning of that day the house of Mr Richard* Wood, manufacturer and former, which stands alone at no great distance from the parish church, was found to be on fire in the breakfast-room. The family consisted of Mr and Mrs Wood* two grown-up sons, and three daughters, with a servant named Mary Morgan, 25 years of age. The whole of the family were in bed at the time, but the smoke arising from the fire and the smell of the burning, materials penetrated the room in which theC two sons were sleeping, and one or both* oi^ them awoke. They immediately aroosed th§ rest of the household, the whole of whom,, with the exception of the servant, escaped in their night-clothes with comparatively bat little injury. Some of them hadvery narrow escapes; for instance, Miss Ettea Wpod- whd ! at the first alarm had rushed out of herroom, ! turned back to see her s...
