[ALL RIGHTS RESHRVBD BY THE AUTHOR.] "THE FREELAND:" OB, OUR HOME IN AUSTRALIA. BYO. BROWNE. Author of "The Children, and How to Manage them/' "All About," etc., etc. "To-morrow to fresh woods and pastures new."-MILTON, "Are you not well, John ?" ''Yes, Ellie, I am quite well, thank you. Why do you ask that question ? Do I appear to ba unwell" " No, not sit all ; only I thought you were unusually silent,' and that your reticence was probably the effect of not feeling quite yourself." , John Wesley Trevail had done a hard day's work. He had risen before the lark, taken his mid-day meal with him into the field, sparing only a few minutes from his work to eat a very plain pasty, and drink a little cold tea prepared without sugar; he had labored till daylight had faded, and then had walked quietly across the field, after hiding his furze hook in the hedge that he had been trimming, to his cottage on the edge of the downs. His wife was watching for his return, and had done everything tha...

City Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 August 1887

City Gossip. by A TALKER. They say that the payment of Mem bers'Bill is certain to become law, but it is confidently expected that it will be modified in Committee and that a struggle will ensue yet-the tussle will be about the time when the measure shall take , effect * * * They say several members of the present Parliament are badly in want at the present time of the proposed pay ; and if all of those_who require an in crease of income become candidates for the next Parliament* there will be no lack of choice. * » . They say it's necessary to enable con stituencies to bring forward the men of their choice to have payment of mem bers. Now they choose the best (?) of those offering themselves, but not those they would have to represent them, "because their favorites, in many instances, are unable^to spare the time from their duties. Talking and listen ing is very expensive providing the old adagre is true that" Time is money." It is true that the spendthrift said " No, time is not m...

Teetulpa [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 August 1887

Tcetnlpa was OUT destination as, a few mornings since, we were pitched into the train at Petersburg, with the bustling activity of tfco officials, as they made all ready and quickly despatched as, in that excited, "go ahead" manner, BO characteristic of railway stations at this end of the colony. Having recovered ourselves, and regained control of our breathing ap paratus, we had leisure to quietly survey, and mentally calculate, our companions. The first was a young man of about twenty eight, dressed in a long, and what had been in its better days a " loud patterned'' ulster, a dilapidated pair of dress boots, a hat which had been closely connected with the sides of a " Claim," and two rings which could not be hid. He had been at Teetulpa almost from its begin ing of fame, but a week pre viously had left to try and find occupation more profitable than mining-had failed to get any one to regard him as a desirable man to assist them to fortune, and was returning with ahope that he mi...

The Weather. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 August 1887

The Wcathe?. Hie weather daring the past fortnight has been variable in the extreme. Wt Wednes day week was the coldest day experienced for many ysara in the col.?ny. Indeed many who have gone throngh the snow and ice of North ; American winters complain that they never felt more intense cold. The view that met the eyes of the early riser on Thursday morn, ing brought vividly to mind winter mornings. " at home." The ground was covered with a mantle of snow averaging about one and a half inches in depth, and the prospect was indeed a beautiful one. During the early part of the morning snow-balling was freely indulged in and, by the fun it provoked, was heaitily enjoyed by-the young folks. A monster snowball was rolled up t» the door of the Junction Hotel, and remained-there for a considerable time before it became a victim to the sun's rays'. Altogether the scene was a very novel one for Srath Australians and probably a considerable time will elapse be ore we shall agiia ba favorel w...

Orroroo. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 August 1887

Orroroo. Oilr tree planting committee hare, I understand, obtained the necessary per mission to commence operations, and the work of fencing in the centre of Second-street will be proceeded with at once. This w:ll make our township veiy picturesque when, in the course of a few years, the trees attain a height, and when as funds are available, the other streets are also planted, As the townspeople have made a move in the diiection of tree culture, it Would be advisable to get the G-overn ment to dedicate to the use of Orroroo the darn situate near the cemetery, which in its present state is quite use less, but at a small outlay could be made to hold. - Dr. Corr having left here, Dr. Elphick, late of Maitland, has taken the practice, and it is to be hoped he will take the same interest in local and public matters as he has done elsewhere. Several residents in Orroroo are in terested in some mineral claims situate near O'Laiy, on the Silverton railway. Samples have been tested locally,...

STARTLING CEMETERY DISCLOSURES. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 August 1887

STARTLING OEMETEBY -DISCLOSURES. -Some strange facts have come to light with reference to the digging of the graves and the burial of the dead in the Necropolis at Rookwood, Sydney. The . cemetery which, is about eight miles from Sydney, is the general burial place for the whole of Sydn'ey and the suburbs, and since its opening in 1867 many thousands of foodies have been interred. Each de nomination has its own land, which is governed by a body of trustees, who. have the sole management of their por tion of the cemetery. Each body of trustees has its own rules and regula tions, which, amongst other things, set forth that the graves shall be 6 feet deep. At/each of. the first burials the grief of those who attended the last resting place, of those they mourned was, no doubt, top great to notice whether the grave was deep or shallow, or per haps they did not know what was the required depth. When it became necessary to make another interment in the same grave the lid of the coffin was...

MODEL PARLIAMENT FOE PETERS BURG.-We understand efforts are being made to form a model Parliament in Petersburg. In the event of such a society being formed the promoters may rely on our heartiest support. Other townships, not nearly so * .^ortant as our own, can boast similar institutions, and it is generally admitted that they have been productive of much good, both in creating public speakers, and in awakening an interest in important political matters. In Adelaide the Union Parliament has proved a valu able recruiting ground for the House of Assembly and has been a valuable aid to many of our public men.

Selected Poetry, MOTHER'S DOUGHNUTS. Eldjrado, 1815. I'VE jest bin down ter Thomson's, boys, 'N feeling kind of blue, I thought I'd look in at the *' ranch," Ter find out what wus new ; When I see this sign a-hangia' On a shanty by the lake : " Here's war yer get yer doughnuts, Like yer mother used ter make."

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 August 1887

TO THE: EDITOR. Sir,-It seems to me that the people of the north and of Petersburg in particular are very apathetic with regard to this most important subject. In Terowie where it is apparent the people are working for their own selfish ends, there is the greatest interest taken in the matter and it will not be the fault of the Terowieites if the Government is not put to a totally unnecessary expense in. laying down a loop-line to tap the Silvertou traffic. Itsppears to me that the two great objections to the extension of the broad gauge to Petersburg are first, that the ascent. between Terowie and Petersburg is so great that the heavy strain is too much for the engine and rolling stock. In answer to this it can be pointed out that the gradients between Terowie and Petersburg are veiy slightly in excess of . those on other portions of the north line, and if the engines of the broad gauge are power ful enough to drag the heavy mineral trains over Hallet, 1,970 feet above the level of...

A MAN AND A BROTHER. A WESTERS EPISODE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 August 1887

A MAN AND A BROTHER. A WESTERS EPISODE. THE chief told the story. He said it was true; and whatever else might be said of him, no one had ever accused bim of telling a falsehood wilfully in his life. A rigid disciplinarian, and something of a martinet in the service of the great trading company at whose head he stood in America, in his own house he was simply the perfect host, the most courteous and. hospitable of men. When his subordinate officers came from the iuterior to the capital, his residence was their natural resort of an evening when the busi ness of the day was done. Twice 1 heard him tell the story I am about to narrate here, each time with^the same words and the same gestures. I believe it to be t< ue, and when he said he witnessed the incident which is the centre cf it, I have, no doubt whatever but that he did see-it. It is a story finely touched with that human, interest which appeals to all hearts. I havg'never thought^)£-!t with out feeling tha't^there i...

Correspondence. BREAK OF GAUGE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 August 1887

Correspondence, BREAK OF GAUGE. TO THE EDITOR. Sib,-In the House of Assembly on August 9th, our senior member, Mr. E. Ward moved. "That it is desirable the broad gauge line of railway should be extended from Terowie to the main Northern Junction station at Peters burg." Seeing the continual agitation that is being carried on in the neighbor ing town of Terowie for a loop to join the N.S-W. line for thepurpose of divert ing the traffic from'Petersburg, would it not be advisible for the leading towns men of this place-if there are any who take an interest in such an important public matter-to strengthen the hands of our senior member by calling a pub lic meeting, to protest against the ab surdity of the proposed loop-line, which if carried out will put the country to needless and unnecessary expense, and will, in fact, mean-the construction of 10 or 12 miles of railway parallel with an existing line, entering into competi tion with it, and, both being the property of the country, natu...

The influence exerted by an intelligently conducted jour nal cannot be easily over-rated. This is not merely an isolated opinion of the editorial pen ; and newly settled countries and districts are ever ready to admit that an impartial medium of communication between various districts, is of the utmost im portance if those districts are to advance. That is, there must be an interchange of thought, reciprocity both in word and in deed. If a people is to advance there must be a united aim, and what applies to .districts also is true of portions of the same-a town. There is little satisfactory progress without unity of pur pose, and no more rapid and simple a method of ascertaining each others thoughts, sentiments, and aims has been discovered than that of interchange of ideas throu...
