THE BANK DEFAULTER SAWELL. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 14 July 1876

THE BANK DEFAULTER SAWELL. James Grieg Sawell, the lato paying teller in the Ban:k of New South Wales, in whose accounts deficiencies to the extent of nearly £6,000 have been discovered, who arrived by the steamer Tararua, from Adelaide, on Friday afternoon, was brought before the City Court on Saturday. In the dock he pre sented a sad picture of humiliation and dis tress, and appeared to feel the position in:o which he had brought himself very keenly, as a large number of bank clerks and others with whom lie was acquainted were in court. Ile stood burying his face in his hands, and remained in that position throughout the inquiry. Mr. Stewart, of Messrs. Malleson, England, and Stewart, appeared to prosecute on behalf of the Bank, but the prisoner was not represented by counsel, nor did he cross examine any of the witnesses. Mr. Stewart stated that the prisoner had been employed in the bank for about fourteen years, and that it was only intended to prosecute him for the embezzlement...

WITH WICH IINCORPORATED THE "PORTLAND EXPRESS." To Protect our nightsr- ot to Infringe upon those of Others. FRIDAY, JULY 14. OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. Tn. Assembly has apparently turned over a new leaf as our telegram states on the debate address in reply to the Governor's Speech :-" The tone of the speakers was moderate and gentlemanly." We are proud to have a record of this improvement as com pared with the tone of the last session which did more to lower publio opinion, than any preceding since responsible government became law. The freedom of debate may be rigidly maintained in the Assembly without descending to those abusive per. sonalities which shock the public feeling, and always end in disappoint. mont. The north wind failed in the fury of its tempest to strip the coat from the traveller's back, but what it failed to accomplish the geniality of the sum did in a remarkably short time. So of argument. Where harsh and abusive epithets have lather deepened projudices, the genial ...

SANDFORD. July 10, 1876. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 14 July 1876

SANDFORD., (FROiI OURn OWN CORRESPONDENT.) July 10, 1876. . We are just now under mle sway of King Dulness. There is very little doing, and there will not be much till the winter is over. Scarlet fever has fortunately not become an epidemic here. The few cases of the disonse which occurred in the township have yielded to medical treatment; and we shall soon, it is hoped, be able to show a " clean bill of health." Football is the nocturnal amusement of the young men, when the weather is at all favorable. It is quite refreshing to see some of the seniors start into the arena and exhibit frantic but futile endeavours to secure goals. Arrangements have been made by the new Wesleyan Minister of the circuit for holding two services monthly instead of one; as' for merly, A " preachers' plan" in the ortho dox style has been prepared for reference in this and the other places visited by the minister and the laymen. The services here are held in Nicholls' Hall. A sad accident occurred on Satu...

MELBOURNE. Tuesday, July 11. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 14 July 1876

MELBOURNE. (FROMt OUR OWN CORIRESPONDENT.) Tuesday, July II. The historical disingeniousness of Adam, who, to secure himself from his share in the responsibility of the 'Fall, pleaded "The woman whom Thou gayest to be with me she gave me of the tree and I did eat," ap pears to be the line of defence the Ministry intend to adopt with respect to the Stevenson case. To-night, when challenged upon the esubject, the representative of the Govern ment in the Upper IIouse pleaded that the proceedings were taken under the advice of the permanent heads of the Department, and that they were only sanctioned by tihe political heads pro forma. How will this excuse avail if the Stevensons' chance to re cover heavy damages during the life-time of the present Ministry? During the same sit ting the important announcement was miade that the Cerberus is to have her muzzle taken off and to be rendered something better than a chained-up puppy, when formidableness lies only in the reputation of the breed....

After. his drinking it, something was said by the landlady about payment, and he was proceeding to march off, when [Mr George Gray, who happened to be near the bar door at the time, said something to Jeshu to the effect that lie ought to pay; whereupon the man drew from his pocket a long-pointed butcher's knife, sharpened like a lance or dagger, and made a dart at .?r Gray's groin, but only succeeded in cutting the trousers. Gray then went hack towards the metalled road, but was pursued by Jeshu, who now attacked tlim with the knife in the region of the heart. Fortunately the blade struck a rib, and so the blow was not as serious as it miglht otherwise ha...
