CHAPXSB m. Before I had been twenty-tonr hoar* in the house I frn desperately in Love with Lady Agatha. I was rather ashamed of myself, nevertheless. Should I have been so eager if Jack Tremenheere had not informed me pre viously of her wealth and independent poailim ? I accused myself angrily of mean, interested motives: bat not the less did I follow her I had a rival, too, and that pujued me, and developed my erdour. Tremenheere bad filled litOecote mostly with coumy msgnmrH wno could oe or use tc me in the forthcoming ejection. But among the goests was a certain major Buoemortom, a hardtidmg, emptj-headed, in»™.Hi-|; dragoon from the neighbouring cavalry hirfA, I being busy with the canvass Mr my election, was absenthalfthedayfivm the house.

Ought we to Flog our Wife-beaters? [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 3 April 1875

Ought me to Flog oar Wife-beaten? CLa*damdW*ter.) At the Glamorganshire Quarter Sessions, lately held at Cardiff, a proposition was made by Mr- F. C. Fowler, deputy chairman, that Parliament should be petitioned to pass a. measure for the application of die cat to wife-beaters. Since then several other rf^friln^rrrs from Quarter Sessions in different parts of the kingdom have been passed, to the same effect, variously qualified as to the extent of die magistrates' power in the matter. Having been invited to express his opinion on the subject, Lord Aberdare stated at some length his objections to the further use of the lash. Most people firmly believe that Sir C. Adderley's measure passed in 1865, which gave power to the judges to order a certain number of lashes in cases of robbery accompanied by violence, had had a deterrent efiect on what is known as garotring Lord Aberdare, it seems, is of a different opinion. His Lordship was appointed Under-Secretary at the Home Office in Novem...

MIIJjCHESTEK. Millc-he-tee, about three miles south-east of Charters Towers, is situated on a pretty high granite ridge, gently sloping lengthways to wards a sandy creek, not very huge, but running during favourable seasons, and in which water can always be obtained by sinking. The site was chosen and reported upon by the late Mr. Jaidine, while officially visiting the gold-field, as belter adapted for the government offices, and although most strenuously objected to by the '»*'*»itantp of the Towers — where the population was mnch larger — on account of the mconvenieDce and Uws which wonld be entailed upon them, at men a distance from tine courts of justice, &c , his choice was approved of and carried out. r* ^.. i_:j ? 4. ;_ ^j. _ t ? . ?? .. 11 «- wu wii in uie lonn 01 a cross, cue longest street running along the saddle of the I lidge, crossed s short distance from the creek J by the main business street, in which also are ] the principal Government buildings.

The Capricornian. SATURDAY, APRIL 3, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 3 April 1875

SATURDAY, APKIL 3, ISV5. One of die subjects upon which legis lation is likely to take place during die forthcoming session is that with reference to die administration of justice in the north. The Act of last session has several admitted deficiencies, and it does not appear to be regarded with, favour by the legal profession. As most people acooainted with the circumstances of the ? northern districts predicted, Bowen has not proved a desirable place for the headquarters of the Judge. It is said that his Honor would much prefer resi- i dence in a place where there was some scope for usefulness. An educated, gentleman, of ripe experience and active disposition, does not care to hide his light under a bushel, or vegetate in a place where there can be no stimulus to inteflectnal exertion. And this is appa rently the case with the Northern Judge. He cannot but feel that his ^2000 a^ear is, very iH-earoed under such conditions, and that were he more favourably situated, the colonists mi...
