Personal. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

Personal. Mr. Luscombe has begun his political campaign. He is 62, an inexhanstible fountain of twaddle. - Water continues to be struck in various .parts of New Sooth Wales at depths of from 200 to 500 feet. A prize of nearly 500 sovs. was presented to Dean Bromby, of Melbourne, on bis seventy-fifth birthday. A Dubbo paper says:-"Judge Docker's lectures to provincial juries again demands a reprimand from the Attorney General. It is said that the eldest son of the Grown Prince of Germany is inclined to be arrogant and cruel. It is not likely, however, that he will be able to practice mach cruelty on the broad-headed Germans. M'Elhone has issued a writ for £10,000 against the EVENING NEWS for the article published in that journal the day before he left by the Frisco mail. M'Elhone directed his solicitors by letter from Auckland. Nicholas Paget Bayley, the well-known Mudgee sheep-breeder and squatter, lett his family about £100,000. His will came before the Sydney Supreme Court on the ...

NOTES IN OUR HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

NOTES IN OUR HISTORY. Thè first discoverer of Australia was Testu, a French pilot, who made the coast in 1542. His map is now in Paris. The Strathmore, emigrant ship, was wrecked on the Cignets, Joly 2,1875. Of 400 people on board, only 38 were saved. The first execution in Australia, was that of a yonth named James Barrett, who was hanged at Circular Quay, March 6,1788, for stealing seven- teen shillings and sixpence. The Dunbar, wrecked at Sydney Heads on the night of August 20,1859, was attended with the loss of 120 lives. Johnson, the sole survivor, was afterwards lighthouse-keeper at Newcastle, and he was instrumental in saving Hedges, the sole survivor of the Cowarra, lost with GO lives. The convict ship, George HI., was lost on the North Australian coast in April, 1835. Of the 208 male prisoners on board, 120 lort their lives. While the vessel was beating on the rocks, the marines in charge of the vessel ruthlessly fired into the hold among the prisoners, to terrify and preve...

LINES TO LADYBIRD. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

LINES TO LADYBIRD. The following verses of poetical rot appeared in the EVENING NEWS recently. As the "feet" are a little eratic, it may be that the author is a sawyer : Ah! well do I remember the drought of '84! It killed nearly all our horses, and sheep, too, by the score; Every day then seemed alike with the doleful cry for rain, To be as surely disappointed, for it-never, never came. The grass long gone, the.paddocks scorched and; bare, - What'torment to the mind, and what a load of care ! The horses were all drafted and sent to.Gundemaine, The balance being left to perish in the lane. A little feed was bought to save a few poor hacks, Served out sparingly even to the best of the "cracks;" Oh, it was meanly stinted-what could be more absurd? And for that very reason I now mourn the fate of Ladybird. Many a long mile she carried me o'er In the heat of the sun or while the rain did pour ; She never was tired, she never gave in ; A pleasure to ride, and true to the skin. Her colour...

THE WEEK'S EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

"THE WEEK'S EVENTS. The "alleged" champion boat race on the Nepean, was the biggest sporting failure ever chronicled in this country. Nearly wo mile3 of old carriages and cattle and sheep trucks were in readines.at Sydney station to convey the millions to Penrith, and some hundreds of porters and other railway employes were drawn in from the country to meet the extra traffic. The army waited from hour to hour, and at noon they got a half holiday. Not more than 1000 people went from Sydney to see the race, while at the Trickett-Ruah contest there were 60,000 spectators. This little afiair shows that a few land speculators and sporting publicans can't gull the- public. Hanlan is said to have remarked when he saw the empty trains, that " he guessed the Hosstralians couldn't get left, nohow." The newspaper reports state that Hanlan won by a length. It was probably the length of his purse. A bitter feeling has been aroused in Sydney, between the HERALD on the one hand, and the EVENING NE...

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

TOPICS OF THE DAY. The Northumberland election has re- sulted in the rainers sending to the N.S.W. Parliament, Mr. Luscombe, Secretary of the Protection and Political Beform Asso- ciation. The handful of Protectionists in Sydney, will, of course, regard it as a signal triumph, and an augury of a better future. The true meaning of the election is how- ever that the miners want, and will have, a democratic candidate-no matter what his other principles may be. Mr. Tighe, who resigned his seat was a free-trader. Mr. Luscombe's opponents on this occasion were three men whose special mark was mediocrity, one of them, Mr. Christie, being in addition, a political crank. Of course, Mr. Luscombe will, swell to some size over his victory, and will go into Parliament a perfect giant of reform. He'll come out, however, an exploded squib. ** ** **. It is the series of small items in the system of general plundering that robs and distresses a country. And there are ...thousands of such .small item...

Glasson's Steam Railway Truck and Carriage Works. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

Glasson's Steam Bailway Truck and Carriage Works. There is hardly a district in any part of Queens- land, N.S.W., or South Australia that has not some acquaintance in one woy or another with the sub- stantial work turned out by Mr. Stephen Glasson, the well-known Sydney manufacturer of waggons, drays, and trollies. There is not a stretch of railway work in tho three colonies that his trollies have not con- tributed to make, and there's hardly on open road track where his waggons or drays have not been .the pioneers of traffic. Consequently it will interest many thonsands to learn that Mr. Glasson's works have developed into enormous proportions during the lost five years ; and he is now one of the largest manufacturers in Australia of railway trucks, etc., for the conveyance of wool, timber, and general merch- andise for Government. Mr. Glasson has been es- tablished about 25 years, and is now sis years at his present extensive site, Harris-street, near the Bail way Bridge. And whet...

Farmer & Grazier. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

I Fat Lens lay small eggs. [. " Pear trees thrive only in rich soil. [ Carrots are the best roots for horses. ¡ Feed young chickens all they will eat. Imperfect scalding causes streaky butter. Cayenne pepper will drive rats from a barn. Too much water in thè soil is the enemy of wheat. Mix bone meal with the food for stock occasionally. - Apple trees should be mulched only in dry weather.; Clean clover sod ploughed 4 in. will raise the best corn crop. Europe, last year, produced 1,970,000 tons of beetroot sugar. Sods with grass roots are capital for fowls that have no ran. Salt and charcoal mixed, should be put in pig's food once a week. Plant the first crop of peas shallow ; the second deeper, and so on. Young potatoe shoots are saved from the frost by turning the soil over them with the plough. An animal ready to die from over feeding may be saved with a dose of from ¿ to 6 quarts of bread yeast. . __J_.... . -- A horse is afflicted with worms when found gnawing woud and fence rai...

£200 SWINDLE AND ITS RESULTS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

£200 SWINDLE AND ITS RESULTS. The London Circuit recently struck off the rolls one George Alfred Cooke, solicitor, for a most barefaced swindle. He was solicitor for the South and West Drayton Railway Company, and went to the con- tractors of the company, Messrs. Lucas and Ansdell, mforming them that he required £1000 for his work, and £1000 additional for a powerful political friend who was in a position to stop the Great Western Railway Company from taking up the West Drayton Company's shares. The contractors sent along the £2000, and Cooke acknowledging its receipt, stated that " it had been duly applied." Of course the two . sums went into his own pocket. Bowled out in his black-mailing, the Law Society moved against him, and he was accordingly struck off.

Wit & Humour. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

Wit & Humour. We want a new way of Hanlan oar sculls. Examine your cheese on the principle Mite is right. Nice- name for a pawnbroker's daughter Little Poppit. A nice title for a child's portrait is " A real screamer." So Gladstone's policy means Nileism to the Egyptians. The Blue Bibbon Army in Sydney are now called Bootbzers. Go to a marine painter if you want a portrait of your buoys. The pig business began when Noah took Ham on board thc ark. , A new picture is out, entitled " An Egyptian Boy and his Mummy." It wasn't for the champion stakes that Hanlan rowed, but for the publican's purse, j The amateur artists who sent a Sydney journal a one figure picture, wanted two for it. ' Society is queer. Those most sought, after are the people who don't pay their debts. 'Booth, the temperance revivalist, now in sydney, is to have his portrait drawn in water- colours.

Woman Items. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

Woman Items. Tom Thumb's widow has opened a museum in Now Tort. Lottie Wilmot, who, with her great big dog, got £500 damages from the EVENING NEWS, is dead. Female captains are all the rage in America. They still, however, have to cry ont "man the life- boat." A Scottish woman, liviug near London, recently gave birth to triplets, and her husband next morning committed suicide. The EVENING NEWS says black haired women win more husbands. How comes it then that all the staff have red-haired partners. - The American theatrical managers get enthusiastic letters in ladies' hand-writing sent to George Bignold. Thus flattered, Bignold lowers his terms. They lamented properly in Madagascar over the death of the Queen. Ño one wore a hat or carried an umbrella for two months. Thonsands got sunstroke. The female giant, Marian, whose height was 8 ft. 3 in., died 10th February, at Hamburg. Fancy a man coming home " early" with such a wife waiting for him. In Wurtemburg, young couples are now forb...

CORPSE OF CHARLES THE FIRST. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

CORPSE OF CHARLES THE FIRST. . . The corpse of King Charles I. was dis- covered within a few yards of the spot where the remains of the Duke of Albany were placed the other day. The following narra- tive of the investigation which took place at Windsor on the 1st April, 1813, in the vault of King Henry VIII., was drawn up by . the late Sir Henry Halford, the Court Physician, and duly certified by the Prince Begent, both of whom were present. Lord Clarendon, in his history of the Rebellion, had raised doubts as to actual interment of the body of King Charles at Windsor, as, when searched for many years later, after the Restoration, it could not be found. But it seems that while the workmen engaged in opening the Royal vault to deposit the body of the late Duchess of Brunswick were making a subterranean passage from the middle of the choir to the new Royal mausoleum, they accidently broke away a part of the vault of Henry VIII., which was not then intended to be opened. Through the ap...

SQUABBLING FOR THE DEAD. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

SQUABBLING FOR THE DEAD. The shocking scenes sadd to have taken place in the Mortuary of the Liverpool (England) Workhouse are,' if true, a dis- grace to the age. Undertakers wrangling over dead bodies, one pulling the last re- mains of mortality one way and another bf course the other way, and each one desirous of finishing off his ghastly task with the utmost dispatch, is by no means an edifying sight. " Only a pauper " is, of course, the scandal, which, .according to the report of the governor of the Work- house, outrivals in irreverence the body snatching, of a quarter of a century ago. On many occasions undertakers have brought coffins, Sc., for one body, and in some cases the body has been changed from one coffin to another.

TREACHEROUS PASHAS SHOT DEAD. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

TREACHEROUS PASHAS SHOT DEAD. General Gordon recently made a sortie from Kartoum with 3000 infantry, two mountain guns, and a squadron of mounted Bashi-Bazouks. They were met by sixty mounted troopers of the enemy, who charged [ the Bashi-Bazouks, who immediately turned and fled. Á panic thereupon seized the Egyptian infantry, and in one minute from the first check, the whole force took to their heels, making a tumultuous " devil-take the-hindmost " rush for the citadel. The sixty horsemen pursued them to the gate, cutting down or taking 200 men, and capturing the two mountain guns. The whole thing was transparent to General Gordon. The leaders of the Bashi-Bazouks were Hassan Pasha and Said Pasha, secretly in league with the enemy,and their little game was to create a panic with the view to assist ,the Mahdi's forces to cap- ture Kartoum. Gordon took prompt steps to bring the treacherous cut-throat Pashas to justice. They were tried by a drum- head court-martial, sentenced to death...

BIGGAMIST KISSED BY TWO WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

BIGGAMIST KISSED BY TWO WIVES. Edward Moss, 45, an oil refiner, was recently charged before the London Courts with bigamy. " Louisa Summerfield Scott, and Hannahretta Mathas Pauline Moss were the names of his. two victims. In August, 1874, he married his .first wife, describing himself as a printer. In March, 1884, he married Louisa Scott,- still stating his age to be twenty-four, and describing his father as a gentleman. He had, it seemed, been courting the girl for more than a year past, and had a mutual friend in a coffee-house keeper at Eliza-terrace, Stam- ford Hill. The wife never became ac- quainted with the fact, although the prisoner was, it seemed, living with her all the time, and even up to the night before his second marriage. He, in .fact, left his home, say- ing good-by to his wife, and went straight to the church for the second ceremony. He had all along been known to the girl Scott under the alias of Edward Adolphus Somer- ville, and he told her that his father was ...

MURDERED BY THREE CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

MURDERED BY THREE CHILDREN. Thc Grand Jury of Washington has in- dicted William Riley, sixteen years of age, for murder in the first degree for shooting his father at their home near Adrian. His sister, Mary Riley, thirteen years old, has been indicted and arraigned for being acces- sory after the act. ' The boy will plead guilty, through his attorney, who will make a statement of the causes leading to the crime. Riley was a widower with three children. Although possessed of consider- able property, he kept his children in ig- norance and filth. He was missed for several weeks, but no trace of his where- abouts could be found. The finding of his buffalo overcoat, covered with blood, led to further search, and his body was discovered buried in a haystack, death having been caused by a gunshot wound in the head. The three children, the youngest nine years old, confessed and gave particulars of the terrible deed. William says that on Feb- ruary 2, he went to the stable, found some catt...

150 BURGLARIES IN SIX MONTHS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

150 BURGLARIES IN SIX MONTHS. James Stanton, who was arrested by Detective Price, of the New York detective force, on Saturday, March 16, while he was offering stolen silver in Green's pawnshop in the Bowery, was a man wholly unknown to the police, but turns out to be one of the most dangerous burglars in the city. At first he stoutly denied that he had ever stolen anything but the silverware, which was valued at £1500 ; but in his room in the Union Hotel, at the Bowery and Hester streets, eighty-three pawn-tickets were found, and he subsequently made the fol- lowing startling confession, which has been corroborated by the investigation of the police :-" I am twenty years old, I ran away from school and worked in a restau- rant. Then I went into street peddling. I was selling bridge medals about the time of the bridge opening. I did not make enough to Uve comfortably, and I concluded to help msself to some of the property of the rich people. I didn't know any burglars or crooked peo...
