Soldiers in Battle With Bad Arms of Service. I [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 23 February 1889

Soldiers iu Battle With Bad Aims of Service In an account of the battle at Suakiin, as seen by a wounded hussar, and sent to ths Daily Telegraph by its special correspondent, the following passage occurs : ' At this first onset no less than three sabres broke over the Arabs' spears. The sabre of one of our troopers broke three times with successive blows which he struck, and being thus dis armed, the poor fellow lost his life, for the men whom lie was then onuiiij* .it speared him after he was unable to parry their thrusts. Another trooper whose sabre broke was cut right down from the shoulder nearly to the waist. This snapping of swords made the men lose all confidence. The sergeant major of our troop sheathed his sabre aud took to his revolver, but this speedily became clogged and missed fire, ns did many of the revolvers used by the wen, although they were only lately served out, as was the case also with the swords, which were quite new, but not half so good as what we had befor...

Yearning for Penal Servitude Weary souls have ere now been 'half in love with easeful death' (observes an Englis.li journal) but n passionate longing for penal servitude is a less romantic sind, if we mistake not, a rarer form of melancholia. It is this circumstance which warns us to look with a little suspicion upon the peculiar tastes of John Charles Cox, a moulder, who, having pleaded guilty at the Birmingham Quarter Sessions to a charge of stealing a neighbour's clothes and money in a common lodying house, put in a rambling statement pf his various offences against the law, accompanied by an earnest prayer that he might be sent away to seven, 10, or 15 years* penal servi tude, 'to see,' as he expressed it, 'whether it will make a man of me when I come out.' 'I wanted,' he continued, ' to be sent away and to be kept out of temptation, and wish to ask you not to have mercy on me, for I do not deserve it ; if you do not put tae away you will not do your duty.'
