RECOLLECTIONS OF THUNDERBOLT. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 25 August 1870
RECOLLECTIONS OF THUNDER- BOLT. (FROM THE ARMIDALE TELEGRAPH.) As my acquaintance with Thunderbolt was of a very recent date prior to his being shot, is has occurred to me that it might tend to interest the majority of your readers were I to give an account of the leading oc- currences of his life, as narrated to me by the bushranger himself, since the time he look up lawless pursuits. My first intro- duction to the freebooter arose in this wise: My father and myself, who are miners, were engaged in prospecting in a very wild and desolate part of the district of New England, &nbsp; situate among the gorges at the head of the Guy Fawkes, a tributary of the Clarence ; and here, whilst we were engaged in drivin- our packhorses over a creek, we one day eng countered a lone bushman, who joined our party. The man was dressed in moleskin &nbsp; trousers, long boots and spurs, Crimean shirt, and rough high hat. He bestrode a horse which was more reremarkable for strength tha...

THE LATE REV TIMOTHY O'ROURKE [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 1 September 1870
THE LATE REV TIMOTHY O'ROURKE -4------ At the present time, when the friends of the late Father O'Rourke are bestirring themselves to erect a monument to his memory, it may not be out of place to publish the following sketch by the Rev W M. Finn, in his "' Glimpses of North-eastern Victoria" - . "Being of a naturally delicate constitution -and that fell destroyer Consumption hav ing taken a firm grasp of his noble frame it was really astonishing how he was enabled to surmount the many difficulties inseparable from the discharge of his duties. In those days the roads of his district were frightful, and once travelled upon were never forgot. ten. Indeed, the most ludicrous stories are told of the roads near Kilmore, when bul. lock drivers used to have clothes props to poke in the mud in order to find out if there was any obstruction before them. As the Rev Pastor performed nearly all his jour neys on horseback, it undoubtedly helped to make his labors mo:e severe. In 1860 his health b...

DETERMINED SUICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 1 September 1870
DETERMINED SUIOIDE, (From the Inglewood Advertiser.) The suicide of Lebrun de Masstn, a Frenchman, at Berlin diggings, is a wonderful example of firmness and determinati-m?, sarcely to be accounted for on any supposition, except that the unhappy men's mind was diseased. From entries made in his diary it appears that he had attempted his life several times by the method often employed by his countrya men-suffocation by the fumes of obheroal-and, failing in this, probably because be was unable, in.a tent, suMoiently to exclude the air, he deliberately noted down that other means must be used. On Thursday morning last he shot himself with a pistol the muzale of which he must have pressed close to his side, as a piece of his flannel shirt was blown intq his lungs, and this he accomplished a few minutes after failing to hang himself, the rope ha used for the purposes not being strong enough to bear his, weight, and having broken in the attempt. But even this does not show to the full ext...
JOURNALISTIC FRINCIPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 1 September 1870
JOURNALISTIO FRINOIPLER A newspaper is no. dbubt a commercial sprcnla. tion, and mere policy would often dictate the wink. ing at matters whioh on principle ought to be de nounoed. In the metropolis or large town, the pro, prietary can eflbrd' to unmask the abom-na ions practised without the fear of "Stop my paper." Withdraw my advertisement," "My printing is coun. termanded," ete. Amongst limited populations, this sort of thing is held in terrorem over the heads of newspaper proprietors, who offend at the risk of obtaining it: The newspaper proprietor who brases the storm is not only made to suffer peouniarily, but is subjected to contumely, which to a sensitive mind, is most hur ful, so that it has become almost impos. sible to be guided solely by pricoiple. Fiiends point at himn as "likely to draw it mild,"' and lees scowl and withhold support. The end oflenis,, that unless principle is compro-mised, the editor or pro. prietor is driven to seek that subhis enee elsewhere whio I i...

MilIat'e free Pve0s PUBLISHED THURSDAY MORNING. r - -- "' THURSDAY, SEP'TEMBER 1, 1870. "ALL Europe in a blaze," is about the sum and substance of the latest telegrams rep ceived by the mail, and the fact of two such powers as France and Prussia being engaged in warfare, with every probability of most of toe other European nations being unable to occupy neutral positions, gives to our ads vices a most thrilling aspect. On the 15th of July war was declared by France against Prussia, and compared with this startling piece of information all other items of in telligence sink into utter tinsignificance. This announcement made at a time too when the various nations were making the strong., est professions of peace, cannot fail co startle the entire universe. When we bear sucb men as the Emperor Napoleon talk of peace and making outward professions of his friendship for his neighbors, then we may look forward to something else than his words would imply. Skilled though he be in deeds of w...

DaRAMs -There are people who dream when they awake, and it is uncomfortable to reflect on the mischlief they may do by? rei, lating. dreams as realities. A singular in stance of this faculty or weakness is coms municated by Dr Faure to the Gazette des' Hopitaux.. Dr Faure was called to attend a wine porter, about forty years of age; whom he fbund in a state of high fever with great. excitement. The patient related to him that while out in his cart, and 'having a' sum of money in his pocket belonging to his employi ers, he had quarrelled with a calm in; that he had received a severe blow; that the cart had backed into a looking glass shop, and had smashed a great deal of property. The 'blow had stunned him and he had recovered after receiving assistance in a- neiglbormig house.' He 'as, afpaid'of telling his misfor; tunes to his family, add felt great distress'at the.event.: DrjFaure: :prescribed ifor him, and on inquiry found that nothing had hapi pened.
