We regret to announce the death of Mr. Patrick Mulcahey, which took place at his late residence, Power street, Hawthorn, on November 26th. Mr. Mulcahey was a leading figure in commercial circles in the early days of Melbourne. He was a partner in the well-known firm of Donovan and Mulcahey, whose place of business was at the corner of Lonsdale and Elizabeth streets, and whose business connections extended over Victoria. The pioneers, who were the backbone of the country, are gradually disappearing. Mr. Mulcahey was a colonist of 62 years' standing. For many years deceased lived a quiet life in retirement.

Death-Notice*26 Sep 1934OBITUARY: Mr. C. F. Clough
News has been received from England of the death at Rugby on August 21 of Mr. Charles Frederick Clough, eldest son of the late Mr. John H. Clough. The old name of the Clough family was at Forrest Hill, South Yarra, where the Melbourne High School now stands. Mr. John H. Clough owned nearly all the land between the railway line and Chapel street, from the river to Toorak road, and the house, like a country homestead, with its long verandahs and surrounded by pines, was a landmark. It was demolished only a few years ago, Mr. C. F. Clough was educated at the Melbourne Grammar School from 1862 to 1868. He went to England upon leaving school, and entered King's College, London, where he remained for two years until he went on to Owens College, Manchester, where he took the Ashbury exhibition for civil engineering in 1873. Upon his graduation he joined the North-Western Railway Company, and became one of its district engineers. He returned to Australia later, and became engineer-in-chief of the South Australian railways. He retired from that position in 1903, returned to England, and became resident engineer to the London County Council until his final retirement a few years ago. He had been living at Rugby for many years. Mr. Clough, who was aged 83 years, was a widower. One of his three sons was killed in the Great War. The others are now living in England. Mr. Clough's younger brother, Mr. Edgar A. Clough, who also was educated at the Melbourne Grammar School, became a well-known woolbroker in London. The family is still represented in Melbourne by the woolbroking firm of Edgar A. Clough and Co, of Collins street.8

  • 8 Aug 1863, SUPREME COURT. CIVIL SITTINGS BEFORE MICHAELMAS TERM. OLD COURT-HOUSE.-FRIDAY, AUG. 7. (Before his Honour Chief Justice Stawell, and Special Juries of Twelve.)
    HODGKINSON V. CLOUGH.
    This trial, which began on Wednesday, was finished to-day. It was an action by James Hodgkinson, formerly owner of several pastoral stations in the Wimmera District, against John Henry Clough, the senior partner in the firm of J. H. Clough and Co., Woolbrokers of Melbourne ; and was brought to recover damages for false imprisonment, and malicious prosecution. It is a material point of the case that the writ commencing the action was issued on the 29th of June last. The declaration contained two counts. The first, for false imprisonment, complained that the defendant without reasonable or probable cause arrested, the plaintiff on the 8th of February last, and imprisoned him for thirteen days. The second, for malicious prosecution, complained that the defendant, contriving and maliciously intending to injure the plaintiff, on the 14th February last appeared before Crawford A. D. Pasco, a magistrate at Carlsbrook, and before him falsely and maliciously, and without any reasonable or probable cause, charged the plaintiff with having feloniously stolen and driven away [from the Woodstock Station] 2,800 sheep, the goods of the defendant ; and without reasonable or probable cause maliciously caused the plaintiff to be imprisoned for thirteen days, until he found bail for appearance at the next criminal sessions, but afterwards, at such criminal sessions, although the plaintiff appeared to take his trial, the defendant did not further prosecute the said charge, "but altogether neglected so to do, and has deserted and abandoned the same, and the same charge is wholly ended and determined :" whereby, and by means whereof, the plaintiff was forced to incur costs in procuring such bail, and in defending himself and preparing proofs of his innocence; whereby also the plaintiff was hindered in his lawful business, inasmuch as Dr. Dickson, William John Turner Clarke, and George Coghill, and others who before these transactions used to have divers dealings with the plaintiff to his profit, by reason of such transactions and grievances "wholly refused to have any transaction or dealing, or discourse," with him ; and whereby also the plaintiff was otherwise damnified in his fame and credit. Damages, £10,000.
    There was a general plea of "Not Guilty" to the whole declaration ; and also a special plea to the second count that 'the said charge [of felony] was not ended and determined in manner and form as in that count is alleged."
    Dr. Sewell, Mr. Dawson, and Mr. Louis for the plaintiff; Mr. Michie. Mr, Wood, and Mr. Fellows for the defendant. The witnesses examined for the plaintiff were John Robert Hudson, detective officer at Ballarat ; Thomas Slattery, detective officer at Maryborough ; Hugh Ross Barclay, superintendemt of police at Avoca ; Wellesley Fletcher Rowe, clerk of the Petty Sessions at Carisbrook; S. F. Gurner, Crown Solicitor, Melbourne; - Warry, from the telegraph office at Melbourne ; James Hodgkinson (the plaintiff) ; and - Mackillop, accountant, Melbourne. The examination of these witnesses occupied Wednesday and a portion of Thursday. The witnesses examined for the defendant were-Samuel Watson, superintendent of the Woodstock Station, off which the sheep were removed which the plaintiff was charged with stealing ; Samuel Pugh, the shepherd who tended the sheep up to the time they were driven off; - Franklin, keeper of a refreshment hut near the Wood- stock homestead ; Thomas Stevens and George McLeod, the shepherds, and Charles Stuart Mossman, the assistant of the plaintiff, who, under the directions of the plaintiff, drove off the sheep ; Geo. P. Old, commission agent : John Henry Clough (the defendant) , John William Bogg, one of the defendant's partners in the firm of Clough and Co; Mathew W. Taylor, solicitor; and Joan Stone, station overseer, employed by Clough and Co. The examination of these witnesses occupied part of Thursday, and until noon of to-day (Friday).
    The evidence of Mr. Gurner, the Crown Solicitor, given on the first day of the trial showed that the prosecution of Mr. Hodgkinson for felony was under the consideration of the law ofiicers from end of April until the 2nd of July ; and that only on that day was their determination come to that there should be no further proceedings. He showed this by reading an endorsement on the proceedings of the following brief fiat :-" No prosecution. 2-7-63." [2nd July, 1863.] The allegation in the declaration that the defendant had deserted and abandoned his charge of felony against the plaintiff, and that "the same charge is wholly ended and abandoned" at the date of the commencement of the plaintiff's action, was one essential to the foundation of the plaintiffs right to sue; and the evidence of Mr. Gurner showed that the prosecution had not been wholly "ended and determined" until the 2nd July, whereas this action was begun on the 9th June. The Chief Justice, therefore, early on the second day of the trial, intimated that he must tell the jury they ought to find a verdict for the defendant on the special issue raised by the second plea to the second count. A necessary consequence of this inevitable result on this special issue raised by the second plea to the second count was also that although on the general question of "guilty" or "not guilty" on the second count, the verdict might be for the plaintiff, yet he could not recover any damages under that count. But as the distribution of the costs of proving or disproving both of the two issues raised on this count (the general one of "guilty," or' "not guilty," and the particular one of whether or not the prosecution was "ended and determined" before the present action was begun), depended on the finding of the jury on those points it was still necessary to continue the trial of the case pretty much in the same way as if the third issue was still in doubt between the parties to the end ; but after the intimation given by the Chief Justice, the principal contest and strain fell on those portions of the case which went to prove or disprove arrest of the plaintiff by, or by the authority of, the defendant ; and, if that proof were assumed, then to prove or disprove under what circumstances of mitigation the arrest was made by, or by the authority of, defendant. Under the first of these divisions of the case it contended for Clough that the arrest of Hodgkinson was never desired by Clough, or directed or authorized by him; but was made by the police, either on their own motion, or, if not so, on the motion of Watson, an agent of Clough and Co., who had exceeded his autho- rity and instructions, which were restricted to measures for obtaining the recovery of the sheep, and did not include (but intentionally, and, on legal advice taken, excluded) any measures of arrest against the plaintiff; and under the second division of the case it was insisted for the defendant that the plaintiff was a debtor, who owed thousands of pounds beyond the value of the stations he had mort- gaged to the defendant's firm in security for moneys lent, and who had himself aban- doned all interest in the stations, and all hope of a claim to redeem them ; that he effected the removal of the sheep secretly by stealth, and under cover of the night, and with elaborate arrangements both to conceal the removal and the route by which the sheep were carried off, so that his proceedings were rather those of a thief than of a man honestly, though under mistake, asserting a supposed right ; and that if his objects were not criminal, they were at least illegal, and tainted by express malice and threatened revenge. For the plaintiff, it was insisted that he was a debtor oppressed and impovorished to ruin by the exactions of the defendant's firm, his creditors ; that from the first to the last he had maintained his position of mortgagor, had never given up a substantial share in the management of the stations mortgaged had never parted with his equity of redemption, and had never ceased to have reasonable hopes of paying off his debt and redeeming his property-these facts and hopes being known to the defend- ant; and that the plaintiff's proceedings in removing the sheep were taken after notice to the defendant of an intention to take some such step in assertion of the plaintiff's rights, and were throughout public and without intention or appearance of concealment. The evidence as to whether the plaintiff was arrested by the authority of Clough was very conflicting; it was principally that of detectives concerned, of Watson (Clough's overseer at Woodstock), of Clough himself, and of telegraphic messages. The evidence on the part of the defendant as to the circumstances which led to the plaintiff's arrest was also not without conflict in its parts ; it related chiefly to the conduct of Hodgkinson first and last, as showing him to have been, or not have been, entitled to, or even merely a claimant of, any right, title, or interest beyond a legal shadow, in the mortgaged stations; his conduct in removing the sheep ; and the conduct of Clough prior to and throughout the proceedings on the arrest of Hodgkinson and the prosecution of him before the magistrate at Carisbrook unto his committal for trial. This evidence also branched into two divisions, with subdivisions. The first portion of it concerned the treatment of Hodgkinson before and up to his committal for trial, including alleged harshness and unnecessary indignity to which he was subjected on his arrest at Bullock Creek, near Sandhurst, removal to Carisbrook, and treatment in prison before his committal. The second division con- corned that portion of it which followed his committal, including circumstances of great abasement and privation and suffering, both on the road to gaol, and during an imprisonment of many days in a felon's cell. The third and fourth subdivisions concerned the alternative question of whether the defendant was entitled, in mitigation of damages, to give evidence of all the circumstances to the prejudice of the plaintiff which occurred in connexion with the arrest and imprisonment; or only such of those circumstances as the defendant was aware of at the time the arrest and imprisonment were respectively procured by his authority. As to the two latter divisions of the evidence, his Honour expressed a strong opinion that only the facts which the defendant knew were ad- missible in mitigation of his acts; but to abridge litigation he admitted the evidence with the intention of asking the jury to assess their damages on the alternative suppositions.
    Mr. Michie having been absent to-day (Friday) from indisposition.
    Mr. WOOD addressed the jury for the defendant in a speech of great force and appa- rent effect with the jury.
    Dr. SEWELL replied in a speech abounding in points well made, and concluding with a passage of great rhetorical grace and warmth.
    The CHIEF JUSTICE, in the course of his summing up, burst once into a passage of most earnest and almost impassioned denunciation of the wrong and indescribable evil which might be the result of an unwarranted resort by the rich and strong to the criminal machinery of the law against the innocent and weak for purposes of oppression, or of crushing the victim down to a position of helpless inability to assert his rights. After a vivid pourtrayal of the results of supposed legal oppression-results which he declared might be so frightful that it would be better to shut up the criminal courts of the country altogether than keep them open and liable to be so abused - he went elaborately through the evidence, balancing the probabilities of each item as dependent on the person giving it, the circumstances under which it was given, and its bearing on other portions of evidence, and classifying the whole into the divisions relevant to the issues raised on the record. These issues he explained minutely to the jury, and to prevent mistake wrote on paper, so that they might specially find on them, in writing, as set out below.
    The jury retired at about three. At about six they returned with a verdict for the plaintiff, on the first count, generally ; for the plaintiff on the general issue of "guilty" or "not guilty" on the second count ; and for the defendant on the special issue raised on the second count of whether the charge of felony had been ended and determined before the present action was brought. The special findings were as follow: -
    First Count.-Arrest and false imprisonment. Verdict " Guilty."
    Damages on first count-
    (1.) Damages with the evidence adduced by the defendant of his knowledge of plaintiff's acts and conduct relating to the taking of the sheep, including the whole proceedings [both before and after the commitment by the magistrate]... ......................... £1,000
    (2.) Do, up to [but not after] the time of commitment............ 500
    (3.) Do., without that evidence, including the whole proceedings [both before and after commitment] ... 2,000
    (4.) Do. do. up to [but not after] the time of the commitment . 1,000
    Second Count.-Malicious prosecution. Verdict. "Guilty."
    Third Count.-Were the proceedings terminated ? Answer-No.
    So the jury have given £2,000, for the whole grievances endured by the plaintiff before and after his commitment by the magistrates, or only £1,000 for those grievances occurring up to and before his commitment-according as the full Court may hold the plaintiff entitled to damages both before and after the commitment, or to damages only before, and up to, such commitment ; and those alternative amounts they have reduced each by half if the full Court hold that the defendant was entitled to give in evidence mitigating circumstances which he did not know, as well those which he did know, at the time he procured the infliction of the grievances endured by the plaintiff.11

Wakley, and others, after a kangaroo, pulled his horse against a tree ; the horse came down, and the unfortunate young gentleman was killed instantly. His head came in contact with the tree, (a small myall) and a terrible wound, laying bare the skull for some inches, was inflicted on the right side, the skull itself being cracked. The deceased neither spoke nor breathed, nor gave the smallest symptoms of life after the fall. He was buried in the Mitchell cemetery, a somewhat numerons assemblage following him to his grave, and deploring the appalling accident that happened to the young man, who, through his kind and gentle bearing, had made friends of all around him, although he had only been in this neighbourhood for a short time.7
