The Holidays. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 December 1888

The Holidays. The Christmas holidays passed off rather quietly in Windsor-so much so that the contemplation of what they would have been but for-the welcome rain of a week or so ago is dismal in the extreme. [ The weather was beautifully warm throughout, and offered evc-ry encouragement to holiday makers to enjoy themselves. Many left town on visits to various parts of the colony, whilst not a few stayed I at home, and drove out into the country to look upon the green fields, and sit beneath the shade of i some huge trees, and eat, drink and make merry. Others took a boat and explored the various I reaches along the course of " our benutiful river," and more played cricket and gave themselves up I completely to merry-making. On Christmas Eve the towns of Windsor and j Richmond assumed a more bustling appenrance than usual The shops were full, the hotels full j streets full, and at midnight not a few reveller^ were in a like happy state. The Windsor Hanj ! under Mr. Tout played a num...

The Trams Sir Henry Parkes did the right thing on Tues day last in announcing the appointment of a Royal Commission tu inquire into the charges which have been brought against members of the House with reference to the disposal of the tram ways. It is extremely doubtful whether there is any good ground for the allegations which have been so freely used ; but after the compromising statements made, Sir Henry Parkes would have been guilty of a dereliction of duty had he d- » clined to take action, even though a majority of members should have been found willing to let Uie matter pass over without any enquiry* That there is some foundation for the and crv which has been raised Cannot be dehit'd after the statement made by Mr. CaffutherS on Tuesday week.

The Mayor's Agistment Minute. TO THE EDITOR* SIR,-I am a ratepayer residing in South Ward* Taking an interest-as VI trust . all my fellow ratepayers do also-in municipal affairs generally* and water supply particularly, I attended last Council meeting to hear what the upshot would be of the proposed alteration in the water supply scheme. That important matter baling been settled, as I think, satisfactorily, the trouble, anent grazing stock in the park, came on. I waa amused at the objections put forward, and Sur prised at their coming from the quarter they did. You know our aldermen pretty well, thereford there is no necessity for me to draw a faqcy sketch of any one of them. The objectors ward Aldermen Primrose, Simon, Dean, and Smith; the first two pose as men of the people-the darlings of the " wurruking man "-and I fail to understand their opposition. Alderman Dean the rising young stock-owner -spoke with the air of a connoisseur on short-horns and Devotts, but Alderman Holden w...

Look At The Other Side. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 December 1888

Look At The Other Side. One day, when I was younger than I am now, I was passing down upon the outside of Quiney Market, and was attracted by a basket of pine apples. I pointed to a very ripe, golden-hued pine upon the top of the lot and inquired the price, and was upon the point of purchasing, when my brother shrewdly suggested,-'Better look at t'other side, first, my boy.' I lifted the fruit, and looked, and found the lower half rotten. Once again my brother and I were on the road in the country, tired and hungry We came to an orchard from which the fruil had been gathered, but by the roadside a few windfalls had be^n un noticed by the husbandman. I picked up a large pippin, but found the rind bruised and discolored with decay. I was about to throw it away, when my brother said.-'Hold on , cut into it first.' I cut into it, and found the heart sound and ex cellent. In my passage through life since those days I have often had occasion to recall my brother's admonitions. I have seen...

TOPICS OF THE Listen to me! and if you speak me fair I'M tell you new*, indiSereat good to either. The New South Wales Parliament is not the only one in the colonies where lively scenes are in dulged in. Recently, in the Victorian Legislature, quite a little scene occured between Mr Jones and Mr Gillies. The latter made an unfortunate slip when he tackled the member for Ballarat. Mr Jones was opposing the Discipline Act Bill, and claimed that lie had the support of his con stituents in the matter. Mr Gillies blurted out, " The constituency is better represented by Colonel Smith than by you." Mr Jones replied to this by saying that the Premier knew nothing about Ballarat since it "kicked him out," but he had shown his spite against it on every possible occasion. He added that Mr Gillies only sup ported the colonel because he expected to get something out of him. " The Premier carries his principles in his breeches pocket, which is certainly heavier than his brain pan," said Mr Jones....

The Joys of a Country Life. [WRITTEN FOR THE "GAZETTE."] [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 December 1888

The Joys of a Country Life. [WRITTEN FOB THE "GAZETTE."] The great American poet, Longfellow -that divinely-gifted, sweetly gentle ex ponent of Humanity's higher aspirations -has given us two of the most highly finished and most pathetically musical prose fictions in the English language. They are both brief, it is true ; but then they have not a redundant word, not a superfluous phrase in them. In any other lands, the literary "padding" might easily have swollen tliem into the orthodox three-volume ornament of our library bookshelves. It is not because they are brief that they are good, their beauty is intrinsic. (May we never fell into the error of those well-meaning but .shallow-brained individuals who interpret the truism, "brevity is the soul of wit as though it read, " brevity constitutes wit and many another virtue beside.") In one of these tales - Kavanagh - Mr. Churchill, that model schoolmaster, records among many other philosophical medi tations 011 the white panel of his...

Hawkesbnry Benevolent Asylum. On Christmas day the patients and inmates were provided with the annual Christmas dinner, roast beef, plum pud ding, etc., a pint of beer, tobacco and pipes, which they|all enjoyed very heartily. As much as anything they enjoyed the decorations of their dining room. Miss Naegueli, with her usual kindness, lent some Christmas-tree decorations, and Mr. Matt. Thompson, of Titt Town, kindly provided a load of ferns, trees, and bushes. By the kindness of Mrs. Blackett, each'patient and inmate re ceived a Christmas letter, and some amusing scenes took place on finding the letters in the morning on their pillows. Altogether, we had as nice and happy a Christmas as any one can have enjoyed it, and were grateful funds-Communi cated. One day a whaler came up, with the usual orthodox query, " Any chance of a job sir?" ''Hum," said Jackey Dow, " can you run, my man ?" The " dust inspector" admitted it was not exactly in his line, but said he could do a little if ne...
