ST. MASK'S. [Newspaper Article] — Warwick Argus — 9 September 1879

ST. MASK'S. St. Mark S Church, Warwick, is one of the handsomest places of worship the inland towns of oar colony aan boast the possession of, and well deserved the compliments the Bishoji of North Queensland paid to it on his recent visit to the parish. It is built of the freestone for which the neighborhood of War wick is noted in a small way, and is commo dious as well oa presentable. In Bhape it is cruciform, and its greatest length and breadth dimensions are about 1001 feet and fO feet, the chancel being 28 feet by 20 feet, the transepts each 22 feet by 24 feet, and the nave 70 feet by 28 feet. The building is well adapted for divine worship, though those who occupy seats in the transepts occasionally do complain of being nnable to se» " what is going on" when the clergyman is ut the Com munion table; they certainly camot, how ever, under the present rectorship complain that they are unable to hear, as Mr. Mat thews' voice is always distinctly audiUe in evety part of the buildi...

PANAMA CANAL. [Newspaper Article] — Warwick Argus — 9 September 1879

PANAMA. CANAL. THE idea of cutting the Isthmus of Panama is by no meana new (saye the Pall MM Octette), and we believe there is in existence an elaborate scheme for carrying through this enterprise at a cost of £20,000,000, carefully annotated by the late Emperor Napoleon 111. This plan was drawn up more than thirty years ago, at the time when Louis Napoleon was still a. needy, adventurer in London^Now, however, that M. de Xesseps has taken the matter in, hand, and the various routes have been care fully surveved by French engineers, there is, of course, more probability that it will be begun. The Americans, however, who are chiefly interested in connecting the two oceanB, show no great inclination to take the matter up, and there can be nO doubt that the con struation of the Union and Central Pacific Railroads, and the probability that er» long -the Southern Pafciftc Boil road may also be built, have decreased the value of a canal through the isth mus. At the same time the engineer...

COMMERCIAL. ABOUB Offloo, Monday Evening. In Courier of Saturday lost saysThere can be little doubt that the past month has been one of the quietest ever experienced in business circles of late yean.

[PUBLISHED TWICE A. WEEK.] WABWICK, TUESDAY, SEP. 0,1879. DnEiHG tfie put few weeks we have spoken in pretty severe terms of the conduct of the Opposition party in the Assembly. We nave, however, on no occasion ift&de use of stronger lan guage than the importance of the sub ject in our opinion demanded. The oonduct of the Opposition during the past few weeks has been little better than that of a thoroughly disorganised rabble. Without the faintest nope of success, they persisted in continuing a course of obstruction even after their leader,: Mr. GRIFFITH, had seen the uselsssneSs of such a course, whieh it was plain could have but one end. If, by refusing, to follow their appointed leader, the Opposition allowed itself to sink into a state of disorganisation quite incapable of combined action, and so allowed the Ministry to force their measures through Parliament with in decent haste, without allowing suffi cient tiipe for proper discussion, they were as deserving of blame a...

The Boulon and Bark case was in fact much loss remarkable. Probably no greater or more successful piece of imposition has ever been recorded. It appears that the woman, who for the past 20 years has passed as a man under the name of Edward Be Lacy Evans, has married three different women. The secret of her disguised sex bos never been even suspected, although she worked con tinuously as a miner for many years, and had been following this occupation in Sandhurst, where she was an ordin ary "wages man" breaking quartz and doing her work with the best of the workmen at several mines.
