UNIFORMS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

UNIFORMS. The ci-aze for altering soldiei-s' uui forms is no modern thing. Since stand ing armies were instituted one of tbe chief preoccupations of tliose in com mand over them lias been how to dress the soldier to best advantage at tlie smallest cost. The French authorities are at present disposed to abolish tlie red trousers of their infantry in favour of the grey-blue unmentionables worn by the Belgian line, and to replace the shako by ti cork helmet with a cloth covering, like that which has been lately adopted lor the British army. Economy is put forward as the reason for preferring grey cloth to red, and of course in tlie clothing of such huge armies as now weigh upon the Continent economy must be an object ; but the military authorities of different coun tries have of late years set themselves an almost insoluble problem in trying to invent uniforms which should be at once cheap, showy in time of peace, and serviceable in war. A little reflection ?will suggest tliat the sold...

WALKING HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

WALKING HORSES. Everybody concedes that there is no gait which so greatly adds to the actual value of the horse as a fast walk, aud yet it is notorious that there is no gait so little cultivated. Even our Agri cultural Societies that are supposed to especially foster the improvement of our domestic animals in all useful qualities persistently ignore this, the most valuable of all gaits in the horse. A premium for the fastest walking horse is very rarely offered, and when there is any such tiling the amount is so insignificant as to attract no atten tion, while hundreds, and in many cases thousands, of dollars are offered for trials of speed at the faster but much less useful gaits. This is not as it should be. We have Racing Associa tions all over the country which offer enormous purses for trotting and run ning, thus furnishing abundant stimulus for improvement in that direction, aud it is the especial provision of our Agricultural Societies to stimulate im provement in the horse t...

THE INDIAN AND THE NEGRO. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

THE INDIAN AND THE NEGRO. The Indian seems to be an irreclaim able aristocrat. In war he is a soldier, in peace a sportsman ; capable of long continued and agonising toil only when a bear is to be shot, or a game won, or an enemy hunted down. He wants a lordlv waste of park around his abode ; he is a turner ot night into day ; he will gamble away all he has : he can conquer any foe better than his own propensities. He has eloquence, dignity, pride, courage, and a sense of honour. He can calmly stand at the wrong end of a loaded gun. He can bear twelve hours' roasting before a slow tire and not utter a sound. Still better, traders on the frontier give him a year's credit, and rarely lose by him. He dotes upon his children, and never strikes one of them when he is sober. He gets up late in the morning, sits long at dinner, delights in conversation, and surpasses in telling a story the most accomplished diner-out in Europe. Curiosity is one of his strongest feelings : but such is the p...

STARTLING DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

STARTLING DISCOVERY. Some light is supposed to have been thrown on the mysterious disappearance of Mis. Farrell from ( 'ullingwood (says the Argus of Monday) by the discovery of some human remains upon the banks of the Yarra during Saturdav last. It appears that Constable Williamson, wjule on duty in the vieieiiy or the river, near Cook's ferrv, which is not far from the Melbourne Gasworks, found lying upon the grass a bone, partially covered with flesh, which, upon examination, he came to the con clusion formed a portion of a woman's arm. Pending further inquiry, he re moved the remains to the morgue, and at once reported the occurrence. Sub sequently it transpired that some two or three days previously two men while fishing in the Yarra hooked up a bag, which, upon opening, they found to contain a bone and a heavy stone. Not recognising the nature of the remains, the}' threw the bone aside, and returned the bag and stone to the water. The river has been carefully dragged in the vi...

THE WORKING MAN OF THE PERIOD. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

!tHE WORKING MAN OF THE PERIOD. It is now more thau eleven years since we first began to make an idol of the ' working man.' At the Paris Exhi bition of 1867 he made his debut under this name, aud appeared, much to his own astonishment, mounted 011 a pedestal suddenly raised for him by new-found patrons and admirers. The worship of the woikmau — to use au older and more vulgar, but perhaps lass anected term — was not confined to England, the land of strange en thusiasms. Napoleon III., with a generosity that looked magnanimous, received the coining hero of the hour with open arms ; and the whole baud of humanitarians, progressists, friends of ' the people,' and leaders of ' civilisa tion,' both in France, and iu this couutry combined to burn incense at the shrine of the modern fetish. It is easy to recall to mind the pretty picture sketched out for the working man of the future. The goldeu age that was to rise for him was to be one of moral as well as material progress. Thenceforth ...

LAND OFFICE DELAY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

Land Office Delay. Either the late enquiry into the Lands Department, or the presence of Mr. Hoskins, has certainly stirred up some of the clerks to unwonted activity. Old cases which have .slumbered iu the pigeon holes for many years have been draped out of the dust and have re ceived attention. In some instances there has been a veritable resurrection of dead applications, which had been forgotten lay everbody concerned. The other day tlie officials at the Town Hall were astonished to receive a letter ill the name of the Minister for Lands, to the effect that Mr. Hoskins would be pleased to grant an interview to a deputation on the boundaries of Moore Park as requested. When the matter was investigated, it appeared that this was in reply to a letter addressed to the department in 1862. Seventeen years have elapsed between the lequest and the reply ! No Circumlocution Office in England ever achieved such a success in delay as this. It would be interest ing to know how many officers...

PRETTY AND WITTY WOMEN IN NAPOLEON'S TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

PRETTY AND WITTY WOMEN IN NAPOLEON'S TIME. j In Napoleon's time there were many pretty and witty women, who basked in the sunshine of tho Court, who stood behind the throne, as it were, and whose influence was especially notice able whenever the ' Little Corporal' was m good humour. There were three, however, whom Napoleon cordi ally hated — Madame de Stael, Julie Recamier, and tlie Countess of Albany. The fii-st two were friends, and all three suffered a sort of social as well as political ostracism at the hands of the ' Child of Destiny. ' Napoleon's brother Lucicn loved Madame Recamier, at least lie assured her so in a hundred tender letters, while Napoleon himself possessed the greatest inclination for the nineteen-year-old beauty. Those of lier contemporaries who wrote of her say she was, in the first place, good ; in the second place, gifted ; and lastly, beautiful — and how beautiful ! A pliant form, neck aud shoulders of supreme beauty ; a sweetly-poised head, lovely hands, ...

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. CIVIL SERVICE EXAMINATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. Civil Service Examinations. There are few errors more prevalent here than the idea that when lads have passed tke Civil Service examination they are absolutely entitled to an ap pointmeut in the Government service. It is only doing them a positive benefit to say at once, and most distinctly, that no rule of the kind exists ; that, if youths have passed the examination with the highest possible honours, they have merited thereby no right to the lowest possible office under Government, or to any other. Appointments in the Civil Service are now what they have always been — matters of personal in fluence and favour. The examination is a sine qua nun to an appointment, but it in no way secures one, nor does it even give a right to employment under Government. This must bo most dis tinctly borne in milid by those who naturally enough fancy that after under going the ordeal — which is far more terrible in the imagination than in the reality after all — they have gained...

TABLEAUX VIVANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

TABLEAUX VIVANTS. Tuehu are few amusements which give so much entertainment to young and old as the performance of Tableaux VivantH, and Christinas time of all others is the period when the ingenuity of hundreds of young people in town and country houses will be taxed to the utmost to invent aud arrange artistic groups for the entertainment of their guests. Tableaux do not involve the trouble of ' study,' as plays and charades do, and with the help of a person with a fair knowledge of colour and grouping they may be easily arranged in a very short time. There is no chance of disagreement as regards the choice of parts, for all the charac ters may be equally well placed and well dressed. In a country house where there is a hall or gallery, a stage can be constructed with very little difficulty at one end of it, and, with a screen or curtaiu to form a border, scarcely anything else in the way of scenery will be required. Those who have the usual double drawing room in which to arrange...

SHOCKING SUICIDE OF A CLERGYMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

SHOCKING SUICIDE OF A CLERGYMAN. For some time past (according to the Argus of Monday) the Rev. T. C. Cole, M.A., the Church of England pastor in charge of the Malvern and Oakleigh districts, Victoria, has been subject to recurrent attacks of melancholia of a most distressing nature, and great anxiety was manifested by his friends as to the ultimate result of the mental strain which was involved. So serious had his condition become that a few months ago leave of absence from his clerical duties was granted to him in the hope that a relief from his arduous labours might terminate in his recovery. With a view of trying the effect of change of scene and associations, he about a fortnight ago became an inmate of his father's house at Hawthorn, but he became no better, and on Friday last, during the interval of temporary insanity, he committed suicide by strangling himself in a most determined manner. Previously he had manifested no symptoms of a suicidal tendency ; aud although his frie...

MR. SUTTOR'S RETIREMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

Mr. Suttor's Retirement. We referred the other day to one or two points in connection witli Mr. W. H. Suttor's retirement. The subject, however, is susceptible of being looked at in another light. There assuredly has never beeu a more remarkable set of reasons for retirement alleged than those which are conveyed iu Mr. Sut tor's published intimation to his con stituents. The Press has constantly been accused by members of the As sembly of depreciating the character and purposes of politicians ; but the Press lias seldom put a meaning into such plain language as that employed by Mr. Suttor. To the Press only a general knowledge on such a topic can be, as a rule, accessible. But Mr. Suttor, who has been for some years in the very centre of action — who has come into contact with coteries, and as a Minister has possessed the painful advantage of tasting tlie fruits of petty leagues and backstairs conspiracies — has penetrated to particulars! What the Press has divined he has experiment...

Victoria. At a meeting of the Exhibition Com mission held on Tuesday, it was re solved on the motion of the Hon. J. J. Casey, to wait on the Colonial Secretary and request him to get the Governor to use his influence to induce the Prince and Princess of Wales to be present at the opening of the Exhibition. The total defalcations of Denny, late Secretary to the Fourth Victoria Build ing Society, amount to £10,792. The report of the Melbourne Meat Preserving Company show a loss on the transactions of the half-year amounting to £5301, caused by the small quantity of stock that has come into the market — the effect of the stock tax!

INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. New South Wales. A shocking outrage was perpetrated nt Lauibton, upon a little girl, 8 years of age, the daughter of Mr. Joseph Young, of North Lambton. The child was re turning through the bush from school, when she was set upon by a man, who gagged her with her pinafore, and then inflicted two fearful gashes across her face with a pocketknife. The child's screams brought assistance, when the ruflian ran away. He was afterwards captured by tlie police, and was re cognised as a youth 17 years of age named George Jilackwell, belonging to Newcastle. The poor child lies in a critical state from the fearful wounds which extend from the temple to the ear, and thence in the shape of a cross to the mouth. Tlie child's recovery is despaired of. A splendid coal seam, entirely distinct from any in the district, is reported to have been discovered near Red Head by the Red Head Coal Company at a depth of 216 feet- The seam is said to be 12 feet 4 inches thick with a two feet...

QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

Queensland. A telegram from May town states that 100 blacks attacked five Chinamen in their dwellings at Revolver Point, and besieged them for six horn's. One black was killed and ten wounded. The Chinamen were not seriously in jured. The Warden thinks the Chinese must have discovered a good reef ; otherwise they would not remain in so isolated and perilous a locality. The Government have forwarded £30 to the Warden at May town for the relief of tlie distressed diggers on the Lower Palmer. At a meeting of the committee of the Queensland Turf Club, on Monday, a resolution was adopted expressive of regret at the death of their late presi dent, Sir Maurice O'Connell. Mr. J. P.

SKINS USED FOR LADIES' CLOAKS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

SKINS USED FOR LADIES' CLOAKS. When looking iu the shop windows I have often wondered what skins are used for lining ladies' cloaks. These fur-lined cloaks just now are very abundant aud fashionable. My friend, Mr. Keilicli, furrier, tells me that the skins used for this purpose are of various kinds. The commonest of all is white rabbits; these are not English, but imported from Lissa, in Poland, where they are dressed by the furriers, and manufactured into linings for cloaks. It is not certain whether these skins are from wild or tame rabbits. As many thousand skins are annually used, it is very probable that they are domestic rabbits, bred for the purpose. Besides rabbit skins, many cloaks are lined with what are called ' squirrel bellies/' These are literally bellies of squirrels. These animals are skinned in a peculiar maimer so as to make the most of the fur. The squirrels used for this purpose are of various kinds and prices. The most expensive squirrel is the Siberian squirre...

THERE WERE ROGUES IN THOSE DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

THERE WERE ROGUES IN THOSE DAYS. In 1780 a gentleman of eminence in the mercantile world was grieved by the contents of a letter which he received from a correspondent at Hamburg, the post-marks of which it bore. From the statement it contained it appears that a person most minutely described, had defrauded the writer, under extra ordinary circumstances, of .£3000. The letter continued to say, information had been obtained that the defrauder — : the dress and person of whom it described — was occasionally to be seen at the Dutch Walk of the Royal Exchange. The object of the writer was to inform his correspondent to j invite the party to dinner, and, by any moral force that could be used, compel him to return the money, adding that, if he should be found amenable to reason and evince any signs of penitence, he might be dismissed with a friendly caution and .£500, as he was a near relative. of the writer. As the gentle man whose name it bore was a profitable correspondent, the London ...
