THE NEPEAN TUNNEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 23 August 1884
'ME; I^L'EAN, TUi\REL, Q.ne. among the halt dozen longest tunnels in tlio world, and certainly the longest, tun nel in the southern hemisphere, was practi cally completed on Iftiday, August 15. Shortly after noon the great elliptical drive, which is. to conduct, the blonded. waters of the Nepeau and Cordeaux rivers.to. the Cata ract River, at a point from, which tbo tread will bo dellocted into a, canal leading them to Sydney, was finished by tho blasting through of abont ui.no feet of solid rock, which liad been left standing as a rampart against those sudden floods which are. so. frequent on the head waters of the Nepeau. This tunnel, which is about soven foet in height by a little over nino feet wide, ex tends from tho Nepeau (shortly bekny where it joins the Cordeaux rivor at thaJPlj'eastfiit's Nest) to, the Cataract river, a distance of miles yet the lovels given by the district engineer,, Mr. T. W. Koolo, and his assist ant, Mr. Bloomfi.old, have been so true that when tlxe me...
HOTELS v. LOCKUPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 23 August 1884
HOTELS v. LOCKUPS. The Gpvringong correspondent of the Mama, Independent maizes the following pertinent re marks ::— The lock-up is how completed at a cost of £2800. 'The building itself reflects great credit on the carpenters and masons, every , thing being well finished off. Although this building may add to the ornamentation of this little town, yet. it must impress itself' upon the minds of the intelligent portion of the rosidonts that had this £2800 been spent in the ereotion of a post and telegraph office or in repairing the roads the public would have been benefited to a greater extent than they aro by having the lock-up. It is true that it will be convenient to lock up some poor unfortunate drunken man, either for his own protection or that of others, but had thero been no pnblio house there would have been no need for a lock-up. It seeiiis a pity that our legislators could not adopt another method of adding to the revenue of our colony than by allowing a man to re tail spir...

TO TUB EMTOU Of, SUB B.QWIUI* FK*}E PHES9, Sin,—I should bo oxtremely sorry to Bay anything to hurt tho feolings of'your ooulv toous correspondent; but Mr. Hodgson will surely not think I used too strong a term whon I Baid froo-thinkers, so-called, wore cncmw to the oross of Olirist. I am not in a position to. say how I am reported in the Free Pro&x, but my utterance in tho church was a sories of quotations from sevoral infi rlol papors in which the gauntlet was de- , liborately. thrown down, and that in the most olftmsivo form.

I hailed the erection of tho new church at Bowral as a glorious means to a most desired end. Allow mo to say that...

A HARD CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 23 August 1884
A HARD CASE. The Sydney correspondent of the Newcastle Herald b ays :— " A gentleman in reduced circumstances some liltle time ago obtained a loan of £10 on his household effects for three months. For this he was to pay and did pay, as it wcib deducted from the first-mentioned sum, and £8 only handed over to him. Well, this £8 he had returned, but had not paid the instalments regularly, so that certain interest, or rather "fines," had accrued. On paying the last in stalment of the .08, ho aslcod what was due in the shape of those atrocious w fines," and to his astonishment was told nine pounds. He was utterly confounded, and said it was impossible to pay tho money at present. A few days afterwards (last Monday) a bailiff was put in possession, a flag hung outside the houge, ji! bellman sent round, and' the whole bis "the poor mau's household effects, including. tho! very bed oii which ho and his wife eleptj were sold i by dilation, roalising iu all somo -C20, for property that lio h...

Bowral Wesleyan Hand of Ho]>c. The regular fortnightly mooting of tho Bowral Wosloyan Band of IIopo was lielil last Tuesday oveniug, tho Rev. 0. Oldon in tho chair. Notwithstanding tho bitterly cold night, every seat was packed. Tho chairman, in his opening speech, referred to the great boat-race of last Saturday, whon Bcach proved himself tho champion of tho world against Ilanlan. Wliilo he admired athlctic sports, ho could not but regret the unusual excitement and drinking and bet ting that attended tho rocont contest. Tho lesson he learned was this—that if tho champion exerted his utmost powers to sus tain honors that could bo wrested from him, how much more important was it to bo en gagod in moral and social work whoso honors oould not bo taken from us. VIo al luded to tho curse of botting, and desoribed some harrowing sconesthat ho had witnessed at the police oourfc Sydney recently.

Harold Netherly; OR, THE GAME OF LIFE. CHAPTER X (CONTINUED). Mb. Netherly reached his chambers in the Albany as the clocks were chiming twelve; and not having been there since he left at an early hour of the morning, a number of letters awaited his perusal. Feeling both tired and excitod, he determined to defer reading them till the morning, contenting himself, for the present, with a glance, a* he put off his clothes, at the superscriptions and post-marks. " Two," muttered Netberly—" two from Brydone! What fresh whimsy can have seized him, that he shoulq write by two suc cessive posts to me, I wonder ? One from Squire Tremaine—business, of course ; and one from Madame le blano, filled no doubt as usual, with threats, entreaties, maledic tions 1 That forward baggage, Jane Gibson, Madame's servant, favours me, too, with a second letter within about a week. Quite a Cornwall gazette, altogether, to which, when my eyelids are less heavy than they are just now, I must pay due attention....

Dalley on Robertson. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 23 August 1884
Dalley on Robertson. In the Legislative Council oil Wednesday, Mr. Dalley said " that period which wit nessed so complete, so revolutionary a change in their laud administration, would be for ever associated with the name of a distinguished public man in this country, of whom he could only speak in terms of ad miration for his political character, for his true patriotism, for his lengthened and hon ourable public service; and,, he might be permitted to add, for a courage and generos ity which disarmed and defeated the bitterest, political antagonism. In referring to Sir John Bobertsou, lie desired at once to re peat that which lie had so often declared, that that venerable gentleman, whatever differ ences of opinion might be entertained of the measures of which he was the author, was the centre and object of a universal public feeling of regard anil pride." • .

CIjc gotol Jfrcc ||rcss. Do as adversaries do in law, Strife mightily, but eat and drink as friends. SATURDAY, AUGUST 28. 1884, It seems that iu ordering the Norwegian Andersen a flogging the magistrate fur ex ceeded liis prerogative, and to some ex tent tlio demands of justice. However, as this latter highly-ncoessary concomitant of jurisdiction is often not only blind, but bait and maim also, it does not surprise one wben punishments it awards are not in keeping with the offence. Yofc it must bo admitted tbat loo great lenienoy is far oftener the case than over-severity, ' With regard to the culprit recently ordered to the triangles, it was the evidence rather than magisterial harshness that caused the oat to. be inflicted instead of the penalty usually meted out for acts of gross indecency. Such was the mis demeanor of the foreigner that ho was severely lashed under the impression that lie had been guilty of what *&ay bo truly called a crime. Tho ill-used offender was the...
The Weather in Bowral. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 23 August 1884
The Weather in Bowral. Doring the past five or six days the weather in Bowral has been of the most disagreeable character. Strong cold winds have been blowing from the west and south-west quarters alternately. The wind was pier cingly cold, which made matters out-of-doors 'extremely unpleasant. The winds of the last few days have made up for the loss of the cold winds at tho proper season. Yes terday, however, was very much pleasanter, being calm and sunny. The change is most acceptable.
