SENTENCE OF DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 25 September 1875

SENTENCE OF DEATH. The common executioner has got an uncommon malefactor to strangle! On Monday last, HENRY HOWARD, form erly a publican at Mornington, was tried before Judge Molesworth, at the Central Criminal Court, for the deliberate and duplex murder of ELIZABETH WRIGHT, late licensee of the Frankston hotel, and THOMAS HARMAN, the barman. The prisoner was convicted, and is condemned to expiate his crimes, upon the gallows. The perpetration of these deeds, and the swift retributive penalty of the Law, forcibly illustrate the truthfulness of what HERBERT RODWELL said that, "no vice mankind commits, but is Father to its own revenge." These horrible murders were committed at Frankston, twenty-five miles from Melbourne, where there is a population of only thirty-two inhabitants. The date of the tragedy was August 14th. Jealousy is assigned by the culprit as an incentive for his actions; but now, while he is " the right man in the right place," the callous occupant of a condemned cell...

INSULAR ENTOMOLOGY., (nanRwWI9K's sIoeN cE oasir.) T''E VOWs. of Mr. Darwin respecting the changes which insects undergo tinder insular' conditions, and wlioer islands have been for a long time separated from' mainlands, have beeoon abundantly borne out by the researches of the naturalists attached to the Transit of Venus Expedition to Korguelen's Island. This island lies in the Southern Indian Ocean, and was discovered by lie ''Frendh 'naivigator Kerguelon, in 1772, by' whom it was considered to be it prnjedting part of the southern con tiuont.; i, A. :mountain-range, attaining tihe height..of,2,500 fcet, :.runs across the island south-westerly.

BIRDS AND AGRICULTURE. (CORNHILL MAGAZINE.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 2 October 1875

BIRDS AND. AGRICULTURE. (conmNaIL MAGAZINL.) Tnh last kite soon in Lincolnshire was shloto about': 1860. We "e' hrve only witnessed their magnificenit hovering and great stretch of wing In Sou th Wales. Ravens are banished to the higher mountains, like Hlelvellyn, and to the most inaccessible sea cliffs. Others, sutch as the .snowy owl or Egyptian vulture, are at the best of times very rare visitors, and only driven to us by stress of weather. The eagles, buzzards, and almost all the larger birds of prey are rapidly seeking the furthest corners of the land. The chough is extinct, save in a few favored localities'of the West. Ganmoeprosorv ing and modern agriculture do not harmonize with their presence. The readiest way of finding any of the raptorcs in the country is to seek the nearest wood, and there snugly sheltered at the end of a dewy "rlde," across which pheasants strut and rabbits skip, and where ehequored gleams of sun shine rest upon the herbago, stands the keeper's thatche...
