SATURDAY, OCT. 2, 1875. THE DEATH PENALTY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 2 October 1875

SATURDAY, OCT.2, 1875       THE DEATH PENALTY. HENRY HOWARD, convicted, on the 20th ultimo, of the wilful Murder of   ELIZABETH WRIGHT, at Frankston, on   August 14th, will be executed in the Melbourne gaol on Monday morning. The Crown had filed another present- ment, charging the culprit with the deliberate murder of THOMAS HARMAN, on the same date, but the convictioin upon the first obviated the necessity of proceeding with the second indictment. Although it is a debated subject with some advanced philanthropists of the modern school of criminal jurispru- dence, that death is inoperative in the direction of salutary example, we pre- sume it cannot be questioned that   Howard richly merits the fatal   consequence of his dreadful crimes. It is not from any spirit of relentless revenge, but rather for the solemn interests of public justice, that we now give utterance to such an opinion; for, ho...

LOCAL NEWS.             Owing to pressure of local matter we are obliged to hold over our exhibition notice. Dog poisoning and fowl stealing are very prevalent just now in the northern suburbs. There occurred a Spelling Bee at St. Andrew's in Gold street, on Monday, even- ing, which is said to have excited consider- able, merriment ; but being otherwise engaged; we could not personally attend it, and have nor received any particulars. , We codgiatilate'thb, trustees of the' Mel. botirnq :Publio Library upon their.rosolea. tion not, E , sanction, the opening of, the Exhibiition., on Sundays.

STATE SCHOOLS; There are six associated schools under the present department of Education, and the only one for Fitzroy, Collingwood, and Carlton districts is situated in Bell street, upon premises puchased by Government from Mr. Conly, who has now the respon- sible superintendence of perhaps, one of the largest and most important educational institutions, outside the Central depart- ment, at present in existence in this colony. The North Fitzroy school, No. 1400, is located in a sort of terra incognita, sur- rounded by meadows, and primitive streets with Warming's Park View hotel' to'the north, 'and the Lord Nowry'tavern' loo'ming initho' distance to ,he touth West.., ":r, Jones appears to be dissatisfied with his present situation, and is ,abqut to leave. rTheo looality, is too isolated and tnapproach able to admit of any atteondance at a 'night school at this'institutiodn whi6h was opened on May 5th, 1874.
