SUICIDE ON THE HOBSON'S BAY RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke and Mornington Journal — 5 September 1877
SUICIDE ON THE HOBSON'S BAY " RAILWAY. A terrible death took place on the Mel bourne and Hobson's. Bay Railway on Mon day evening, which has every appearance of having been a most determined suicide. When the 6 p.m. train from Windsor to Melbourne had left the Richmond station, and when the wooden bridge leading to the Botanical Gardens had been passed, a man jumped upon the line about twenty yards in front of the train, and was immediately run over and killed. The engine-driver saw the man jump, and has no doubt that he did so with a suicidel intention. Owing to the short distance the train had to travel before reaching the deceased, it was of course im possible for the driver to prevent the tearful occurrence. On arriving at Melbourne the driver reported what had taken place to the stationmaster, who at once despatched Con stable Flannery in a cab to bring the body of the deceased to town. The constable found the body in a terribly mutilated con dition. The back of the head was ex...

THE NATIONAL SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke and Mornington Journal — 5 September 1877
THE NATIONAL SHOW., A correspondent to the Staioell Chronicle, signed " Breeder, " thus ,criticises the National prize' list:" I have just received a copy of the prize..list of the National Show, to be held at Stawell, and though the heading' looks very grand (£1420` to be given away), yet in overhauling the prizes for stock; they are not' tobeconipared with other shows in the .Western district. It seems to me a waste of money for the Government to give away £500 to a show, unless the committee who frame the prize list give liberal prizes to induce breeders to send their best stock to exhibit. Let me compare a few of the prizes offered by the National Show alongside of those offered by other societies. I will take sheep first, as after all they are the most important exhibit in this country. The National Show offers for merinos three champion prizes of £25, £10 and £5. - The. Hamilton Show offers two champion prizes of £50 and £25, second prize of £5 each, and a Gold Challenge Cup o...
