MISOELLANEOUS. IThe French police are making efforts to discover the perpetrators of a very clever robbery,: by which registered letters to the value of about: L24,000 were recently abstincted from the van of the express. mail between Paris and Bordeaux. During the year 1880,10,829 couples were married in Berlin. Among them were 702 widows and 224 divorced wives. The age of the majority of the women was from twenty-five to thirty. One widower took his fifthl wife,' one k widow her fourth husband; 524 i Catholic women married Protestants, 813Protestant Catholis; forty Jewesses took' Christian - husbands, fifty-nine Christian women Jews.: The "Nashville American" has the following, narration' of a ghastly re hearsal:-? In the gaol of Davidson, County Tenn., is confined a man who is charged with murder, and who nightly, in a fit of somnambulism, repeats in pantomime the 'crime of which hto is supposed to be guilty.

Sales were very brisk on Friday, and all stock were disposed of up to expecta. tions, stores briog up to L5 10 The yards were all cleared very early, sales all being finished before three o'clock, alfter which time Maffra resumed its every day appearance-quite an unusual occur rence on a Friday. There is to be a special meeting of the Shire Oouncil at the Shire Hall on Wed nesday next, for the purpose of enquiring into the best method of forwarding our local interest in the disputed railway route to Briagolong. No doubt all the national material influence that can be broughtto gether will be collected, and the reasons given in support of our rights thorougly commented upon. A ridicoulous instance of marriage oc. curred at Walhalla last week when an old woman of 75 years of age, as well as being a great grandmother, was married to an old man very few years her junior The happy pair must have spent a lively, if not a pleasant time of it for the firs...

A CHRISTENING STOPPED BY A MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 15 January 1883

A OHRISTENING STOPPED BY A. MURDER: Preparations for a christening (says a New -York paper) wore interrupted by a murder recently in the tenement house at No.72, Jackson-street. Rooms on the third floor of the building have been occupied for less thanr a year by John J. Caldon, a carpenter, twenty eight years old, his young wife, and his father-in-law, Thomas Donohue. Cal don's family was increased by the birth of a son. The father was away in Elizabethport, N.J., working: at his trade, when the babe was born. He arrived home with his week's wages, and began at once to make arrange ments for a christening. He wont out and purchased some liquors, and the liquor.dealer, named Norton, promised to act as godfather. Other friends were invited to the house, and before 9 p.m. Caldon was drunk. His father-in law had often upbraided him for being intoxicated, and he began to rail at him that night in the presence of some of the guests. At length Donohue, who was an impulsive Irishman, went u...

GIPPSLAND GUN CLUB [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 15 January 1883

GIPPSLAND GUN CLUB The Sale Gun Club held their second meeting of'the season here, on Thurs day last, at the swamp reserve, on the road to Newry. En passant it may be remarked that the Powers that be in the club should have chosen ground more adapted to the requirements of the competitor. The weather was all that could be wished, and the deaths among the feathered tribe more numerous for the cartridges, used than has ever pre-   viously been the, case. Reynolds, of Heyfield, shot magnificently, killing 23 birds without a miss. Major Wilson, of Sale, was unerring with his first bar rel, and Johnson-Boe, Sunderman couldn't be beaten in the sweepstake, all the birds being disposed of. In the match for the club's prize, Reynolds and Major Wilson divided, each killing 110 birds, and Reynolds Sunderman, and Johnson-Boe shared the prize-money in the sweepstake, there being none left to shoot at. On the whole, the meeting was a most successful one, and the sport of the day most...

ENGINE DRIVERS AND THEIR DUTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 18 January 1883

ENGINE ?DRIVERS AiND THEIR DUTIES. The drivers on the Victorian lines have .received instructions,., imposing more. responsibility on them, though their powers have not been specifically enlarged.' The real' difficulty is that it is necessary to give guards and station masters po.er over drivers in certain cases; at • stations,' for" instance, the stationmasters are supreme as far as authority goes, but .drivers at times have to positively disobey- orders. In doing so they incur great responsibility and personal iisk. For instance, some timde ago a driver was told by a station mai~ ter to leave the station. He asked about a special he expected. The eta tion master said that arrangements had been changed, but the' driver said he would not turn a wheel until he knew definitely what had beucome of the special. The stationmaster peremp torily re-stated his order, and proceeded to put it in-eriting. W',While the matter was'still! being argued; the driver then having i written order to go...
