THE QUEEN AND VALENTINE BAKER. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 27 June 1884

THE QUEEN AND VALENTINE BAKER. It ia said the Queen is firmly deter- mined not to sanction Colonel Valentine . Baker's readmission either into the army qr into any society where her influence is recognised. We wonder how many of those interesting women who are so anxious to have him hack as a pct amongst them really know the particulars j that led to his exile. We'll refresh them \ with a few words VERBATIM from Miss Dickenson's evidence at his trial, She was travelling alone in the railway carriage, and at Liphook-station the gal- lant Val. got in. After passing Woking, he asked her name, and on her not tell- ing it, he came and sat close to her. Then " I said, ' Get away ; I won't have you so near,' and pushed him off. He said, ' You are cross.' He then put his left arm round my waist, drew me nearer with the other hand, and kissed rae once. He said, " You must kiss me, darling." I pushed him off. I tried'to ring the bell to warn the guard. He said, 'Don't ring ; don't -call the g...

A FORTUNATE SNEEZE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 27 June 1884

A FORTUNATE "SNEEZE. jin old veteran told an amusing story to a Chicago News reporter the other day : " It was our first scouting expedition carly in the war. _ Wc landed in thc evening, and were trying to look up some guerrillas who had madë a dash that day to thc steam- boat landing. The regiment divided, and the men went scampering over the country in gleeful recklessness. Soon it became j very dark, and both battalions lost their way. Moving forward in line, one battal- ion came suddenly on a body of troops formed to receive them, with skirmishers out. Neither officers nor men were clear as to what the regulations called for in such a case, and there was a hurried and excited conference. The troops might bc our men but they ignored every challenge, and we knew that they, like ourselves, were ready to fire. There was a minute of terrible sus- pense, every body in doubt. Then suddenly there rang out from the ghostly line in the distance the major's double-shotted sneeze. It was li...

PLAIN LITERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 27 June 1884

-? PLA TN" LITERATURE. Mr Bierce, of the SAN FRANCISCO WAsr, is one of the neatest and most cynically straightforward writers in the American press. His comments in thc recent Patti craze in'Frisco, are terribly true. Thus: " This Patti craze has amore serious aspect. Second only to this woman's fame asa singer is her fame as an adulteress. Hea- ven forbid that I should set myself up as a censor of any adtdteresses save those who have the hardihood to continue famous ; I only beg to point out that when Christ shielded " the woman taten in adultry " He did not tell her that if she was a good singer she might go away and sin no more. That is how I answer the ever-ready sneer about ' casting the first stone.' That is how I cast it. If the Magdalen, finding herself possessed of a single talent, had gone into business as a show without re- forming her private morals, Christ would not have been found standing all night in line to buy. tickets for himself and the Blessed Virgin." In thc sa...

GENERAL MISCELLANY. THE E. & A. COMPANY'S NEW STEAMSHIP GUTHRIE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 27 June 1884

GENERAL MISCELLANY. THE E. & A. COMPANY'S NEW STEAMSHIP GUTHRIE. The E. «fe A. Co., the pioneers in the trade between the Australian colonies and China, have just made two very im- portant additions to their fleet. For some time, the trade has been expanding at rate that taxed the efforts of the com- pany to keep pace with it ; and therefore new boats were a necessity. The order for the contraction of these was given to ,the well known builders, Messrs. W. Doxford «fe Sons, of Sunderland, who have constructed the whole of the ships belonging to the company at present in active service ; and from letters which were received by the last mail, it would appear that the new ships are of a very superior description. The first one, the Guthrie, is well on towards completion, and will, it is expected, leave London about the middle of next month. Her dimensicns are-length, 300, beam 38ft, and depth 24 feet. She is to have a cut- water and a round stern, and her rig will be that of a ...

OPEN COLUMN. LETTERS to the Editor must be conched in respectful and simple language and as concise as possible. In every case the writer's name is required, not t necessarily for publication, but as a guarantee of good faith.] THE CHINESE QUESTION. (By "A TBAVEU.EB.") To THE EDITOB. DEAR SIB,-With your kind permis- sion I would like to have a few words to say on the Chinese question which was so much enlarged upon in your issue of the 20th by a writer signing himself " Fair Play," and which I am glad to see you also keep well before the public. There is no necessity for me to waste time m pointing out the importance of the question; that has already been done by hundreds of writers, in the N. T. as well as in the other colonies, where the matter had assumed equally as vast proportions as it is doing here at the present time. Setting aside the insignificant questions of latitude and longitude, I arrive at the first point raised by " Fair Play," that if we are to have sugar, coffee, ...

DEATH OF A RIVAL CLAIMANT. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 27 June 1884

DEATH OF A BIVAL CLAIMANT. Charles Ogden Ferris lately died in Brooklyn. He was in his day, a rival clai- mant to the Ticborne estates ; and, though a thriftless ne'er-do-well, worked up a plausible plot that would hare done credit to the smartest swindler on the boards. He read up our own Roger's case to tho very hilt, and then concocted a story sgy,;. cleverly combining truth with falsehood^' that one of thc soundest Yankee lawyers of the day, General Barnes, for a time swore by him. Ferris rehearsed his. first inter- view with Barnes for weeks beforehand, and the pathetic style in which he described his adoption of the name of Ferris from a denr companion, who, in his travels, he averred, died alone in his anns, would hare , taken the cake from a tip-top actor. Even hard-headed old Barnes begau to glisten ! about thc gig-lamps over it, and for a time Ferris had a good show of knocking out our Roger. But Ferris had, of course, a pal in tho " swindle'" one Jules Brerrant, a Frenchm...

CAUSE OF THE DEATH OF THE DUKE OF ALBANY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 27 June 1884

CAUSE OF THE DEATH OF THE DUKE OF ALBANY. While in England, as in Australia, the daily papors published respecting the death of the Duke of Albany only what accorded with a pcrconceived opinion as to how a royal saint should start for heaven, and the swell weeklies followed suit, there were Sapers of a more independent and voracious isposition, which scorned to treat their readers as fools or children. MODERN SOCIETY, a London weekly, circulating mainly among the middle-as distinguished from the fashionable-classes, gives the facts only distautly hinted at hy its contem- poraries, in a straightforward way, thus : -" From what I hear from Cannes it is impossible to doubt that the Duke of Albany's end was hastened by the appetite which was suddenly aroused in him there for amusing excitement. He got into a very fast set, and went along with them in the race after pleasure. There was not the re- straining presence of wife and child. A taste sprang up for thc emotions of the gambling-ta...

A BRAVE ACT. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 27 June 1884

A BRAVE ACT. . Charles Salter, steward of thc English ship " Jnpiter " was a witness of a wreck off the Point Louis Bocks, on the coast of Mexico. The wind and sea were too great to allow boats to approach the wreck, and several shots had been tired across thc vessel, but thc line would not hold on to the shot, and fell into the water. Against the advice of his captain, who told him the feat was impossible, Salter swam out to the wreck with a coil of small lino upon his shoidders. Twice he was beaten back hy- the waves on to the beach ; but the third time he plunged in, and after forty minutes* battle with the breakers, the brave fellow reached the ship and clambered on board. The small rope enabled him to haul a cable from the shore, which was made fast, and by means of what sailors call " a bony and breeches," ' a boy and three ladies were successfully sent ashore. The other pasT sengcrs and crew quickly followed-thirty two souls in all-and last of all came the brave sailor to who...
