HOW THE SCAB IS CONCEALED VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 4 January 1870
HOAV THE SCAB IS CONCEALED IN VICTORIA. A correspondent signing himself 'A Victorian Squatter' writes a lengthened communication to a Bouthem contemporary (Tlie Dcniliquin Chrmude), embodying the general opinion that the inspectors of scab in Victoria receive their appointments by no means for then: fitnesB to perform their duties, but solely on Account of some 'proper representations,' some back-starrs political influence, some 'button- hole ' connection, or even some sectarian peculiarity. A broken-down tailor, an incapable attorney's clerk, or an unsuccessful draper's shopboy, provided only they can pull any of the strings enumerated above, arc appointed inspectors, in preference to some of tbe most thorough experts in the Australian, who lack no quali fication whatever, excepting only political influence, or perhaps sycophantic pliability. The writer then pro ceeds to narrate an incident which occurred to a gentleman whilst in treaty for tho pur chase of a station in Victoria ab...

There he had an introduction to Brigham Young and his wives and other Mormon notables. The night before embarking on his return, he gave a concert at Quebec, and gave the following interesting account of bis experiences m Momiondom : — I arrived at Salt Lake City on the 1st of July. It is a city of suburbs ; and houses are scattered, and each house has its garden aud trees ; the streets are wide and clean ; water is flowing everywhere. The place has a quiet, nice, genteel, air about it. In the middle of the city, the business part, there are one or two blocks. Some of these struck ma strangely. Over tho door was a large circular sign, with the wonls 'Holiness unto the Lord.' Beneath this was an eye painted, representing Omniscience, and below that these words, ' Zion Co operative Store.'...

ENGLISH SPORTING NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 5 January 1870
ENGLISH SPOBTTNG NEWS. The end of the season of 1869 was rapidly drawing 1 near when we received by the last mall our Englis files. The two great Autumn Meetings at Newmarket the second October and Houghton meetings were over, and as far as the cracks go, there will be no excitement until the next snrine— thono-h of cnunte. them is plenty of racing or steeplechasiiig going on throughout the winter. At the setond October Meeting the principal events were Ccesarewitch, the Middle Park Plate (the two year old Derby), and the match over the Ditch Mile between Blue Gown, the winner of the Derby 18C8, and the well known and almost invincible miler Friponnier, the big hand liandicap falling to Clierie, by StockweU, a three-year-old, one of the light weights beating the old stager John Davis, who was turned loose, and seventeen others.

THE SHOW OF SHEEP AT ARMIDALE. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 5 January 1870
THE SHOW OF SHEEP AT ARMIDALE. (From Hit Armidale Express, January I) liie exhibition (under the Pastoral and Agricultural Society of New England) of unshorn sheep, as adver tised, came off on Thursday, iii Mr. Stair's puddock, on the hill N. of Armidale Creek. Fortunately the weather was favourable, there being an E. wind, with a clouded sky, and thus there was an absence of the excessive heat which had previously been the rule, followed every evening by a thunder-storm, deluging the ground. But from some creeks being still up, a number of the shoe]) that were on tlie ground had to swim on their way ; and we have no doubt that under more favourable circumstances the exhibits would have been multiplied. Yet there was little to complain of on this score, the show of sheep being very good. There was scarcely so much variety as at the last exliibition, but the greater number of the sheep were first-class of their several kinds. Messrs, Dangar Brothers were awarded five prizes; Mr. John...
"CAROLI BADHAM ADHORTATIC AD DISCIPULOS ACADEMLE SYDNEIENSIE." [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 5 January 1870
'CABOLI BADHAM ADHORTATIO AD DISCI- j PULOS ACADEMLffi SYDNED3NSIR' ThisiB the title of an address in Latin by Dr. Badhnrn J to the students of the University, published as a f pamphlet of thirty-four pages. The author begins by expressing bis desire to imitate the example of learned professors in many European Universities by this special mode of instruction, that he may kindle and cherish in the minds of the students that love of litera ture which has for many years upheld and comforted him The first part of the address is devoted to the repulse of those who disparage the study of the Greeks, ' and recommend that the talents of youth should be exercised on work more useful for the puiposes of life and more adapted to the present age. At the outset, the learned Professor gives what we cannot but deem an unfair bias to the controversy by assuming in a parenthesis that by 'life' his opponents mean merely 'profit.' Now, what is known in tlie argument for modem branches as ' utility' i...
