A Rock Foundation. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 14 April 1877

A Rock: Foundation. I have long been 'thinking that the life of that old maid, my elder sister, Mrs. Barclay, ouglit ? to be written. It makes no difference if sho has been married and has a boy now twenty-one, and that her husband is dead-she wu» an old maid from infancy. I nm certain that on her tender brows when she was first laid in a eradlo could have been soon tho beginnings of those corkscrew ringlets which have dangled down on ouch side of her face ever sinco I know hor. To be sure she had n great deal to make her an old maid. She was careless enough to bc born of re spectable but poor parents, nnd after her there- wero seven boys nil of a wiid horse description. The marks of their hoofá nrc atilt to bo seen on nome of tho very best parlor furniture. She naturally pined for a sister-something soft and femenino through all this howling wilder ness of boys, and I was' not born till the very last thing. She lind'nearly given me up and was about to settlo into a coñceiy trated h...

THE NEMESIS OP CRIME. \ - BY Youno AUSTRALIA, - CHAPTER III, . SISTER KATTE. ' I begin to' wish I liad not called this a political story.- Wlwtt does the average j . rsad'er o£ tales care or know about politics, save those of Cupid and Hymen ?

Death of Mrs. Caroline Chisholm. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 14 April 1877

Death of Mrs. Caroline Chisholm. THE obituary notice received from England contains the name of Mrs. Caroline Chisholm, a lady whose name will long be remembered with gratitude and respect in Australia. She seems to have inherited from her father, Mr. William Jones, the philanthropic spirit by which he was distinguished. And when after her marriage to Captain Chisholm, she   went to Madras, her enthusiasm of humanity found scope in the establishment of an in- dustrial school for the daughters of soldiers, whose neglected condition had awakened her compassion. When Captain Chisholm, came to this country for his health, Mrs. Chisholm found a new and wide field for her benevolent exertions in aiding emigrants, especially   those of her own sex, to overcome the first difficulties of their position in a new country, and to obtain employment and homes. She made long tours up the country to carry out this design, and published the result of her observations for th...
