ST. MARK'S VENICE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

ST. MARK'S VENICE. Gold and colour and rare marbles sculptured into perfect form — an in tricacy of line, a richuess of idea that bewilyers you like a labyrinth, and of which you cannot at the first moment gain a clear conception— cupolas, stand ing out against the sky, grey and 'soft like giant pearls— saints and angels set between acanthus leaves to break thie poverty of the bare outline — those four life-like horses, seeming as if they would spring from the heights were conquest placed them as a sign of how the old was vanquished by the new — glass that glitters black aud stem as steel as a foil to the broad expanse of gold, and brilliant colour in the hollowed archi traves over the doors — these are the 'first things that strike you as you look at St. Mark's from the outside, and strive to piece together into one clear whole all these seperate circumstances of beauty. Within, you come to the same bewildering profusion of loveliness. The pavement of mosaic, now broken and irregul...

POSSESSION BY THE DEVIL. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

POSSESSION BY THE DEVIL. A lkttf.r from a Roman correspon dent (says Pall Mall Gazette of the 25th January) recently gave sonic re markable details about a craze which has fallen upon some inhabitants of a village in the province of Udine. These wretched people, unless cured by this time, believe themselves to be nnnnnnnnrl !.„ *1.„ J„..:i Tl.^ Jo in uoil. j mn if» nu thing; for as late as 1802 the village of Moraines, in Savoy, was afflicted by what doctors call ' demononiiinia,' and the antics of the ' possessed ' gave much trouble to the French authorities. Savoy had just been annexed to France, and Cardinal Bil'iet, Archbishop of Chambery, wrote dismally to the Due de Persigny, Minister of the Interior, explaining that the craze had begun in 1857, and that exorcism had been tried in vain, both on the maniacs indi vidually and on the villagers col lectively . M. de Persigny, who had but a slight faith in religious rites as curative agencies, ordered the prefect of the Haute Savoi...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

One of the pluckiest acts we (Hor sham Times) have heard of for some time was performed on March 15, by a little boy 1 2 years of age, son of Mr. Charles Smith, of Horsham. The youngster was out rabbiting, and having run, as he thought-, a rabbit to earth, put his hand in the hole in which he supposed the animal to be, and immediately reiceved a severe bite from a [snake on the fore finger of the left liand- H jiving satisfied himself that the bite was from a snake the young ster, who had a small and by no means sharp tomahawk with him, deliberately placed his finsrer on the sand and hacked it off, after several strokes, by the first joint. He then tore a piece off his shirt aud bound up his hand in professional style, using a bit of stick by way of tourniquet, and, being some three miles from Horsham, made the best of his way into town, when, with out calling upon his parents, he sought the services of Dr, Davidson, who speedily improved upon the amateur surgery he was called upon ...

DANGERS AHEAD IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

Dangers Ahead in Victoria. Those who have leisure, and informa tion, and courage, and the true interests of the noble colony of Victoria at heart, will, it is to be hoped, shake off their apathy, and do their duty, by diffusing the modicum of light they may possess in the circles more immediately within the influence of their example. Let their, motto be ' Nil Desperandum.' To despair of the commonwealth is treason able and cowardly. Let them be up and doing, diffusing through the press by addresses, and by their actions the grand truths of sociology ; how from 1 the lowest to the highest all are depend ent on united action, and none cau sever the links of mutual dependence one on the other which has been wisely ordained for their mutual benefit by an over-ruling providence. Let all well informed men, who desire the well being of the colong, place themselves 011 the electoral roll of their divisions, and attend and give their votes fearlessly at the ballot-box ; for able honourable ...

JUSTICE IN FIJI. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

Justice in Fiji. It is evident that notwithstanding the powers entrusted to the Governor -of Fiji as Lord High Commissioner of Polynesia, the machinery of justice in the South Seas, is still very incomplete. The New Britain case, although it occurred a good many months ago, still remains unsettled. Besides this there is the case of Cantain Moller. which was reported in our columns some time since. Captain Moller was murdered on one of the islands of the Gilbert or Kingsmill Group. A person named Thomas Rennell was held in custody in Auckland on charge of having perpe trated the crime, but was liberated 011 the ground that the authorities had 110 power to authorise his detention. A third case is commented 011 in the New Zealand papers. It appeal's the Otago Daily Times remarks, that the conduct of Mr. J. Cornwall, acting-Consul iu Samoa, in importing labourers from the Line islands to Lata, where he had a plantation, and maltreating them, has been the subject of severe comment in an ...

THE LATE BISHOP OF NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

THE LATE BISHOP OF NEW CASTLE. The death of the Right Rev. William Tyrrell, D.D., Bishop of Newcastle, ?will be heard of -with profound regret by a very large part of the community. He has been ailing for some time past, but, until recently, hopes were enter tained of his ultimate recovery. A telegram, however, on Monday after noon announced that he was in a comatose state, and that his medical attendants had little hope that he would r:)l 1 v Their fenrs wprp vpalisprl fnv shortly after that message reached Sydney Bishop Tyrrell was dead.

NOTIFICATION OF ALIENATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

Notification of Alienation. There are few outside of those who are interested in land matters, or those who have given much attention to the land laws of the colony, who know the large amount of property which has changed hands by means of a K form ; and when, therefore, the cases of Fallon v. Moore and the oni tried before Judge M'Farland at Bega resulted in the avowal that notifications of alienation by means of a K form were worthless, the uneasiness was something remark able. We know thousands of acres which are held by this flimsy title, and j although the title is sufficient providing the original selector is alive and cau be found and compelled to give a legal transfer by means of a conveyance, the troubles are more manifest when the original selector is dead or cannot be 1 found. I11 the latter case, while a man can hold the area, he can never sell it with a perfect title, and therefore the price of the holding would be materially depreciated. Again, if the original selector...

FOREIGN COMPETITION AND ENGLISH MANUFACTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

FOREIGN COMPETITION AND ENGLISH MANUFACTURES. Some striking facts relative to foreign competition with English manufactures are stated by Colonel Wrottesley in a letter which appeared in the Times, consequent on the writer's discovery that all the locks on a building recently erected for the War Office were manu factured in America. The contractor, on being questioned, replied in effect : — 1. That he could buy locks cheaper in the United States than here. 2. That the^freight from America only cost 2 per cent., while he had to pay 5 per cent, on small packages in England from Willenhall. 3. That the locks were improvements upon the English pattern and designed by himself. Eng lish manufacturers aud their workmen refuse to carry out improvements, and only work by rule of thumb. American manufacturers at once endeavoured to carry out his design, and sent him a superior article. 4. That the japan ning on English locks is daubed on by hand, and often peels off; the American japanning pr...

THE FIFTH JUDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

The Fifth Judge. The penny wise aud pound foolish economy, which is being so rigidly ex ercised as regards the payment of these high and important officials, stands out in censu.iable contrast with the lavish expenditure of the public money for far less worthy or justifiable purposes. j ne aiuuum 01 revenue linn 1 1 ;t.^ in-i-n literally squandered by the Corporation of the City of Sydney is perhaps the most flagrant instance we could adduce. That fathomless gulf of incapacity has swallowed Government funds to the enormous total of £201, G48 within the last twenty-four years, and the As sembly has passed a clause in a Bill now before it for the purpose of reliev ing the all but bankrupt corporation of its burdens, granting an endowment without conditions to tlie extent of per annum 101 leu years mure. The total amount for the first-named period expended by the Municipal Conncil is £1,023,411 including the Government aid, and all there is to show for it is the worst drained, and most...

AN EPICURIAN OSTRICH. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

AN EPICURIAN OSTRICH. Captain Caleb Cronkmax, an old and highly respected resident of the Twenty second Ward, New York City (says the Sun), owned until lately a gigantic ostrich that was as familiarly known in the region as himself. The great bird disappeared lately, and this is the story of its latter days, as related by Captain Croukman to an inquisitive Sun re porter : — ' One morning iu June,' said the captain, ' I was aroused by a crack ling sound at 1113' door, and I discovered in the hall a gigantic ostrich which had just bitten off my door-knob and was at that moment devouring it. With the aid of some of the gentlemen in the house I secured the bird and turned him into the back yard. The next, morning an advertisement appeared offering a reward for the ostrich, which had escaped from a meuagerie. I was so charmed with the bird's unique en oo+jof,, loo fi,o+ r bought him and got him cheap by turn ing over the reward in part payment. I occupied the rear room on the second floo...

THE TRADE AND RESOURCES OF THE RIVERINA DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

Tiie Trade and Resources of the Riverina District, Assuming that Victoria is edged out of the greater portion of the Murrum bidgee traffic by the action of New South Wales, she will naturally turn her attention to the Darliug trade, two thirds of which now fall to this colony. The Victorian Minister of Railways, it is known, is favourable to the construc tion of a line to wentworth, hoping by that means to divert the whole of the Darling traffic to Melbourne. Thic, however, would in all probability be a ruinous expedient. By the river route South Australia can compete with the adjoining province. Moreover, if it were found necessary for 11s to extend our railway to Wentworth, or some point higher up the river, the distance by rail to Adelaide would be only about two-thuds of the distance to Melbourne. It is true we should have to go over New South Wales territory in order to reach Wentworth, but as a help to her policy of checkmating Victoria, there can be little doubt that New Sout...

THE "CONTEMPORARY REVIEW" ON ALCOHOL. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

THE 'CONTEMPORARY REVIEW ' ON ALCOHOL. The discussion on alcohol, started by the managers of the Contemporary, has been tedious to read when published in snippets through three consecutive months ; but when read as a whole, the papers are not lengthy and they contain some valuable information. The leading idea has not been to consider the ques tion of alcohol as a whole, but to obtain the opinion of experts on the subject of drinking, as ordinarily practised by average Englishmen, and especially its effect on health. Great experts, like Sir James Paget, Sir William Gull, Dr. Radcliffe, Dr. Garrod, Dr. Risdon Bennett, and six or seven others, have been induced to record their opinions ; and the result when the papers are carefully studied, is a kind of conseusus very valuable to the uninstructed public. The great body of professional opinion here recorded is distinctly on the side of +he value of alcohol as a medicine, and as a luxury, or even as a food, when taken in very strict mod...

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. THE CHINESE QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. The Chinese Question. It has been pointed out that the phrase 'Chinese race' would include Chinamen who had been naturalised and the children of Chinese parents born within the British dominions, and it has been urged that some other words ought to be employed. The Government have readilv recognised how undesirable, in deed how impossible, it is to adopt any measures to prevent British subjects from coining to a British colony, and accordingly a new clause, which stands eleven in the Bill, has been inserted. This action of the Ministry lias given very considerable dissatisfaction to the anti-Chinese orators, and they have held an indignation meeting at which a pe tition to the Assembly couched in scarcely respectful langaage wasadopted, aud has since been presented to the House by Mr Buchanan, who, having been a participator in the proceedings .. uwi .u '.io bound to defend its statements when they were taken exception to by Mr. Greenwood and other lion, members...

THE GIFT OF TEARS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

THE GIFT OF TEARS. It is common nowadays (says the New York Times) to say of a tragic or an emotional actress, when she fails to move her audience perceptibly, that she lias not the Gift of Tears. There are some fine dramatic artists who plainly have this lack on the stage, though it is altogether probable that they possess such gift, and can use it effectively aud plenteously in private. Many actresses, even clever ones, act far better off than on the stage, and for this reason never get the public reputation they deserve. The poorest of them, if they could and would delineate in the theatre -what they delineate in their own drawing room or chamber, would awaken tumul tuous applause. All women, as a rule, are actresses more or less ; the great majority have a degree of histrionic talent, and often exercise it uncon sciously, though seldom, or ever, in vain. And the principal source of their success is their tears, which would seem to have been given them as a set-off to the superio...
