THE CALE TO ARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 4 March 1885

THE CALE TO AlttlS. It is France and Russia who form the real clanger of the future. France will never rest until she has regained her lost military supremacy, nor Russia until she is in pos session of India. Against either or both of those a United British Empire forms the most effectual bulwark, even should Ger many stand aloof. The presence of New South Wales troops is a visible proof that the spirit of.unity is not a sham. Whether we have acted wisely or not, time must de cide, but it may be found, after all, that Mr. Dalley simply anticipated a real emer gency. It is a sad commentary on modern Christianity that the, rule of the sword should yet be so powerful; but so long as vast tracts of the earth's surface are under the sway of those to whom the principles of social and political progress are things ac cursed, so long shall we have to. be pre pared to fight in defence of the liberties which we eujoy. We are no advocates* for war, we are not blinded by the brilli ancy of mart...

LORD ROSEBERRY ON THE COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 4 March 1885

LORD KOSEBERlttt ON THE COLONIES. At the conference recently 'held at the Me morial Hall, London, tor the purpose -of considering "the desirability of cementing a closer <union between Great Britain and her.colonies than now exists,as the best means of maintaining and developing the trade of the country and promoting the industrial interest of the wage-earning classes," Mr. George Potter, who presided, read a latter from Mr. W. E. Forster, in which he said that " the maintenance of .union with our colonies is dearer to the hearts of al most all Englishmen who care for their country, but it would seem to me pre-emin ently a working man's question." .. Lord Boseberry, writing from Mentmore, said " I have always contended that this is pre-eminently a working man's question, as it is the working classes who send out the emigrants who-form the populations of those empires beyond the sea ; and that it is a matter vital to the prosperity of the working classes of this country to...

"The profits to Messrs. I,J"oody and Sankey on the sale' of their revival hymn books are said to have reached half a million of dollars. No other publi cations of * the kind have approached these in popu larity. The proceeds aro divided eaqnally between the evangelists.

No part of the human machine requires more constant super vision than the nervous system : for on it our health —and even life—depends. These pills strengthen the nerves, and are the safest general purifiers of the blood. Nausea, headache, giddiness, numbness, and mental [apathy yield to them. They despatch in a summary manner those distressing dyspeptic symp toms, stomachic pains, fulness at the pit of the stomach, abdominal distension, and regulate alike capricious appetites and confined bowels—the com monly accompanying signs of defective or diminished nerve tone.

OUR FIRST WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 4 March 1885

OUR FIRST WAR. Hitherto the Australasian group has been considered as in its childhood, dependent for its national existence on the mother country. Up to the present time the colonists have been quietly building up the framework of this future great nation, leav ing the international political turmoils, wars, and rumours of wars, to be dealt with by the countries immediately concerned. Now, however, the peaceful serenity that has prevailed here since the establishment of this vast continent under the protection of Great Britain is about to vanish. We are to concern ourselves in international government: to consider ourselves on an equality as a nation with the countries of Europe. We cau raise a few hundred sol diers, or even thousands, and we are going to send them forth to gain honour and glory on the field of the battle or else perish by the sword in the wilds of Africa'. This is the first time in the history of Australia that she has sent out' soldiers for anjT pur pose, and it ...

BEACH v. CLIFFORD. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 4 March 1885

BEAOH v. CLIFFORD. The boat race between Beach and Clifford, . for a money prize of £400, took place over " the championship course of the Parramatta River on Saturday afternoon, and resulted, according to expectation, in a win for Beach. There was not a great deal of excitement either before, during,- or after the race, and the' attendance' on the' river and along the bank3 was miserably small, while seve ral of the steamers which1 cook up positions at various points to see the race were very poorly patronised. The weather was ex ceedingly rough and choppy, owing to the strong gusty wind which prevailed; but Beacli, who had won1 the toss and chosen southern side, managed to get through it fairly well. Clifford, however, seemed to splash about a great deal, and his' steering now and again was, to speak mildly, erratic. The word " procession" sums the race up from beginning to end. Beach dashed ahead at the start, established a clear lead by the time' he had reached Ulir's Pointy and...

M. Kistemaeckers sent Mr. Desprez a long letter giving him reasons for not appearing. The most salient passages of the document were the following :—" I will consequently not be present at your victory, my dear Mr. Desprez, for you will undoubtedly be triumphantly acquitted. It would be impossible for an intelligent jury to confirm so nonsensical an opinion as that which would assimilate you to an habitual criminal who might commit a rape ou an old woman in the Boulevards. . . . . .
