POETRY. . REFUGELESS. Miss Adelaide Proctor, the famous poetess, interested herself very earnestly in establish ing such night refuges in. London. In the autumn of 1830 the Rev. Dr. Gilbert, a Catholic priest, opened the first Catholic night refuge ever established in England or Ireland, at No. 14 Finsbiiry Square, called the Providence Row Night Refuge for '''Homeless Women and Children. In two years U, 785 night lodgings had been given, with tho same .-number of suppers and brsaki'a-sts. For the benefit of ^this charity, . Miss Proctor wrote the following beautiful . poem: — It is cold, dark midnight, yet listen To tb.at patter of tiny feet ! It is one oI : your dogs, fair lady, Who whines in the bleak, cold street !? | It is one of your silken spaniels Shut out in the snow and sleet !

Wednesday, 21st. ' In the Assembly : Mr. M'Elhone moved the adjournment of the House for the purpose of calling atten tion to certain answers which he had received relative to persons receiving free passes to travel by railway. These passes were given to all sorts of persons, many of whom were not entitled to them. He also complained of the treatment which Mr. York and familv had received at the hands of a railway official in order to accommodate Sir James Martin. ? Mr. Lackey said that no concession what ever had been made by the Railway Depart ment to Sir James Martin other than what was made to every Judge of the Supreme Court. With reference to the issue of free railway passes, the bulk of them were given to persons who were desirous of going into the interior in search of employment. He did not believe that this system of issuing free railway passes had been abused except in one instance. Mr. Parkes felt humiliated at the name of Sir James Martin having been brought forward in....

CARLYLE ON THE ATHEISTIC DARWINS. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 27 February 1877
CARLYLE ON THE ATHEISTIC DAB WINS. Carlyle is now very feeble, through age, but his memory is still marv.olous, and the flow of his talk— doubtless the most eloquent of the age — is unabated. Take this for a sample:-— 'About thirty years ago a book was published here called the ' Vestiges of Creation.' It ran quietly through five edi tions; men road it with bated breath, in. silence, and marvelled at its audacity. It was like a pmch ol snuff, and now whole, waggon-loads of it are thrown down in the public highways, and atheistic sneezing has become the fashion. So-called literary and scientific classes in England now proudly give themselvos to protoplasm, origin of species, and the like, to prove that God did not build the Universe. I have known three generations of the Darwius ; grandfather,' father, and son ; Atheists all. The brother of the famous naturalist, a quiet man who lives not far from hero, told me that among his grandfather's effects he found a seal en graven with this ...
LATEST ENGLISH NEWS BY GABLE. LONDON, Feb. 15. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 27 February 1877
LATEST ENGLISH NEWS BY CABLE. [FROM TIIE DAILY PAPERS.] London, Feb. 15. It is generally stated that a Russian army of 200,000 men and 720 gains are at Kislienev, in splendid condition, ready to cross the Danube. Feb. 17. England's reply to the Russian circular depends upon the course of events. Be fore expressing its views, the English Government desires to know the views of tlie other Powers. The Right Hon. Gathorne Hardy, Secretary of State for the War Depart ment, in replying to Mr. Gladstone's question in. the House of Commons, on Friday, said that England was not freed from obligations under the Treaties of 1856 and- 1871. It would be unjust if Turkey was left in the cold. But Turkey was saddled with obligations under the treaties, and if. she was bound the rest of Europe was bound. The treaties, J imposed no duty, in case of war, for Turkey, but respect for her independence and. integrity. He strongly protested against drawing the sword with a view of coercion.

CARRIED IT TOO FAR. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 27 February 1877
CARRIED IT TOO FAB.. I Mr. Butterwick called in to see me the other day, and in tho course of the. conversa- tion he said': ' I'm going to move. I can't stand those Thompsons next door to me any longer. They're tae awfullest people to borrow that I ever saw. Coffee and butter and sugar and flour ?

COMMERCIAL. Herald Office, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 27 February 1877
COMMERCIAL. Herald Office, Monday. HIE condition ot these districts owing to the want of rain is lamentable in the extreme. If a change for the better does not soon come we fear it will be ruinous to many of the' settlers in the back country. Tho town itself is tolerably well supplied with water, the private tanks having been replenished by a few light showers ; and the reservoir containing a supply of water— such as it is— for some considerable time to come. When the improvements which are now being prosecuted upon our public reservoir are completed, and the latter once filled, there need be no great anxiety about water supply. On Thursday afternoon last, after a great deal of threatening, rain descended in gentle showers and alight thunder-storm broke over the town. The rain continued at intervals, but in light showers only,, through the night and part of Friday fore noon. From our exchanges we learn that this rain has been pretty general throughout the colony ;? and as the Victor...

DOES WHEAT-GROWING PAY? "Facts are stubborn things." (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 27 February 1877
DOES WHEAT-GROWING . PAY ? 'Facts are stubborn things.' (to the editor.) Sir, — This question, of which you struck the key-note in your last issue, is one which vitally affects our very existence as a community ; and, as I know that a considerable amount of prejudice exists among' the vsettlers generally adverse to the theory that wheat-growing does pay, and as I believe this opinion arises from their not keeping' a regular aecoimt of ,.the cost of producing' this cereal, I have thought it worth-while to write a few words in advocacy of the. affirmative side of the question. . .'In support qf my argu ' merit I shall, quote an instance or two, which I have from reliable sources, that I thiuk will show conclusively that that branch of agriculture does pay, and pay » handsomely. Indeed, I believe there is no speculation in which a man can en gage, iu this part at any rate, if he knows aught of the business,, as wheat-growing'. And further, my firm ? opinion is that as soon as the iron ...
