THE MYSTERIOUS TRAVELLER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 October 1873

THE MYSTERIOUS TRAVELLER. I WAS seated in a comfortable compartment in a first-el ass railway carriage at London Bridge Railway Station one 24th Decem- ber. The weather was horribly cold, and the wind was very high. My thoughts were far away down the line-forty miles down, to Nettleton, where I was going to spend my Christmas holidays with my . uncle, Arthur Blucher, a few cousins, and Bessie Nolan. Giving a shilling to the guard, I requested him to lock the door, and I was left to my cigar, my evening paper, my Bradshaio, and my Bessie. As we slowly glided out of the station, I was somewhat surprised to see a tall, lank, white-faced gentleman walk up to my carriage door-which I paid the guard to lock-open it, step in, and take his seat opposite me. He was a most peculiar-look- ing individual. His face was very long and painfully white ; his eye was bright and restless ; his hands, incased in black kid gloves, had the appearance of possessing a good deal of bone ; his legs were awkw...

ON HER MAJESTY'S SERVICE: SPECIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 October 1873

ON HER MAJESTY'S SERVICE : SPECIAL. WHEN I was first appointed one of Her Majesty's inspectors of machinery, I thought myself a considerable personage. I was but a young man ; but it seemed to me that I was sût for ever above the troubles, and certainly the dependencies of life ; that there was no need to kotoio to any man, and that, by no possible combination of circumstances, could I ever be " put in a funk." It was fated, however, that within a very few months of my appointment I was to endure a greater fright than I had suffered in my lifetime before ; greater than when I was as a school- boy told to " stay " at Eton (which was the delicate introduction to the flogging-block) ; and greater than when I went in for my civil service examination, choked with dates to I the throat-gate. ' I When inspectors of machinery were first ' appointed many manufacturers resented it exceedingly. The stories I have had to listen to from masters with respect to the certain ruin that awaited trade...

Literature. BEN CLOSE OF B AGGENH AM, THE MODEL LABOURER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 October 1873

£fteraturt« BEN CLOSE. OF B AG-GENR AM, THE MODEL LABOURER, THBRB was a model man -who lived in a ?village not far from the country town in which I have spent the chief part of my own life. Although true stories are commonly dry Btories, I shall endeavour to amuse all who listen, by telling, without any deviation from the bare and Bimple fact, the story of that model man. I knew him well. He wa9 a hedger and ditcher ; named, if you please, Benjamin Close-Benjamin Close, of Baggen ham. His character was so good that he was spoken of habitually in Baggenham society-and even known among many of my neighbours, townspeople of Beechester-as Honest Ben. He was a hedger and ditcher ; but could turn his hand to any kind of labour, and was never out of work. What- j ever he undertook to do he did ; came always with strict punctuality to any duty for which he had been engaged ; and whatever he did was done always heartily and well. All the farmers looked upon him as the model labourer of Bagge...

Original Poetry. LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 October 1873

Anginal poetry LIGHT. I LIGHT ! I want light ! My pathway is all clark-shrouded in mist : Blindly I wander on amidst the gloom, Dangers around me-turn where'er I list Troublé and care and sorrow seem my doom ! Light ! give me light ! No human lamp ! I want not help from man, whose feeble spark But leads me into dangers on all sides ; As ignis-fatuus, glimmering in the dark Lures on the foolish wanderer whom it guides Into the swamp. Light ! not of Stars Bolling their huge bulk through the vast expanse Of endless space-bright suns to other spheres To this but twinkling specks, lost to my glance In the bright film of mist that oft appears To hide those stars. No lightning glare, Flashing a moment with its lurid light, Thenleavinggreater darkness, deeper dread. I want tho light of Hope to aid my sight, To show the narrow path that I must tread With so much care. Light ! not of sun To brighten but one side of life, the rest In but the deeper shadow, lost in night. Oh ! Light of Truth ! ...

N. S. WALES RIFLE ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 October 1873

N. S. WALES RIFLE ASSOCIATION. THE Annual Matches of the above Associa- tion commenced at the Paddington Hange, on Tuesday, the 7th inst. The arrangements of the ground were all that could bedesired, and much credit is due to Lieutenant Cooper (Honorary Secretary), for the . successful manner in which all the details of the range were superintended. The tent accommoda-: tion was excellent, and at times the scene was very effective, as the various firing squads marched to or from their posts in their picturesque uniforms. The weather throughout the earlier portion of the matches was rather unpropitious. Strong and gusty winds prevailed on most of the days, and on Thursday, the 9th, the driving showers of rain were most unpleasant, not to mention the uncomfortable condition of the ground, which rendered a recumbent position very trying. The competitors stuck to their duties with commendable patience, but the weather must have operated against the quality of the shooting, although the ...

VIEW ON THE RIVER TAMAR, TAS M A N I A. LASSOING WILD HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 October 1873

VIEW ON THE RIVER TAMAR, TAS M A N 1 . A. LASSOING- WILD HORSES. The Pampas of South America is the region where the wild horse is to be seen in perfec- tion. There vast herds are met with, con- gregated under the guardianship of a single leader, and exulting in their life of freedom as they career over the plains. To capture these wild creatures is a very difficult matter, and is generally managed by the help of the lasso, which is simply a plaited rope of green hide, having one end furnished with an iron ring. Simple as this instrument of capture appears, it can be used hy practised hands with terrible power. On setting out the hunter has his lasso hung in coils upon a projection of the saddle, but when the game comes in view he throws the coil over his left arm, makes a slip-noose by means of the iron ring, and then grasping the ring and rope firmly in his left hand, so as to prevent the noose from slipping, he grasps the centre of the noose and the main rope in his right haud, a...

Oddities of History. ORIGIN OF PUFFING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 October 1873

ORIGIN OP PUPPING. J FEW persona have an idea of the origin of the word puff, as applied to a newspaper article. In France, at one time, the coiffure most in yogue was called a pouff. It consisted of the '¿air'raised as high as possible over horse-hair cushions, and then ornamented with objects indicative of the tastes and history of the wearer. For instance, the Duchess of Orleans, on her first appearance at court, after the birth of a son and heir, had on her poziffa, represen Cation in gold and enamel, most beautifully executed, of a nursery ; there was the cradle and the baby, the nurse, and a whole host of playthings. Madame de Egmont, the Duke de Richelieu's daughter, after her father had taken Port Mahon, wore on her pouff a little diamond fortress, with sentinels keeping guard, the sentinels, by means of mechanism, being made to walk up and down. This advertisement, the pouff", for such it really was, is the origin of the present word puff- applied to the inflations of the n...

PRACTICAL BEARINGS OF GEOLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 October 1873

PRACTICAL BEARINGS OP GEOLOGY. DERIVING all our mineral and metallic treasures-our coal and iron, our gems and precious metals-from the crust of the Earth, \ it is of vast importance to be able to dis- criminate between mineral substances, to determine in what formations they occur, and to say where they are or are not to be found. The miner cannot proceed a step in safety without the guidance of miner- alogy and geology ; and though mining existed long before the truths of science assumed a technical aspect, yet do its operations pro- ceed with certainty and precision* only in proportion to the advancement of scientific generalization. Certain of our minerals-as coal and iron, for instance-occur in several of the stratified formations. To what forma- tion does any special field belong ? What its extent and thickness ? Are its beds of easy access, or are they disturbed by dykes and dislocations ? Again : certain other minerals, as copper and tin, occur in lodes and veins ; and as lo...

Temperance Scraps. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 October 1873

Cemperame &rrau*« STIMULANTS. - George D. Prentice, tiie American writer, who has written many beautiful things, that will live long in the memory of those who have had them im- printed on their minds" has never written anything more strikingly beautiful than these lines on stimulants. When it is recollected that he was himself addicted to the use of intoxicating liquor to a hurtful degree, their directness will be none the less discernible. He says :-' ' There are times when tb e pulse lies low in the bosom, and beats low in the veins ; when the spirit sleeps the sleep which, apparently, knows no waking in its house of clay, and the window-shutters are closed, and the door is hung with the in- visible crape of melancholy ; when we wish the golden sunshine pitchy darkness, and are very willing to ' fancy clouds where no clouds be. ' This is a state of sickness when physic may be thrown to the dogs, for we will have none of it. What shall raise the sleeping Lazarus ? What sha...

SPRING TIME—THE FLOWER GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 October 1873

SPRING TIME-THE FLOWER GIRL. THE gentle Spring has come at last ! The mild, genial, warm - breath'd Australian Spring-who comes not, as in Old 'England, with coy and hesitating steps, but in ' hearty laughing earnest, with brow crowned with 'garlands and lap filled with flowers. Now is the season for pleasant 'bush rambles, from which we return with a hundred kinds of wild flowers, all full of bril- liant beauty, and many :laden with fragrance, despite the assertion of some would-be descrip- tive writers on Austra- lian scenery, who harp on the want of song in 'birds, and of smell in flowers. Heaven help their ears and noses ! Now is the time when 'the fragrant "native rose" is at its best, and when we find the crim- son bunches hawked 'about the streets of Sydney for sale. Nor do these lack purchasers, albeit the regions of wild flowers about Syd- ney are so readily acces- sible, and nearly every suburban cottage has its plot of cultivated flowers. The love of flowers-whether it sh...

?í)t Monti). THE most interesting political event of the year is the ministerial financial statement : and, so easily does pub- lic confidence rise and fall, that the fate of a Govern- ment often hangs upon the emptiness or plenitude of the Treasury coffers. Figures, like the facts they represent, have an inhe- rent stubbornness, and are by no means to be trifled with. During the year a ministry may bolster itself up with pledges that require, time for fulfilment, by numbering themselves with those who Keep the word of promise to our ear, And break it' to our hope. But when the day of reckoning comes, all-these filmy shelters disappear, and'happy is the Treasurer /who can show the people a good fat. balance on the right side of the ledger. " Money and time," says Johnson, " are the heaviest burthens of life ; and the unhappiest of all mortals are those who have more of either than they know how to use."

FIRE AT PYRMONT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 October 1873

FIRE AT PYRMONT. ON Monday, 6th instant a fire of very destructive character broke out in the large hay store belonging to the Sydney Omnibus Company. The premises occupied by this company are situated at Ultimo, immediately on the south-western side of the railway em- bankment which runs from Parramatta street to Darling Harbour. Between two and three years ago, when the company assumed to itself that large proportion of our town traffic which it has since maintained, the premises now occupying their grounds, and the store just burned, were erected. At about half past four on the afternoon of the day mentioned the fire was first observed at the end of the building nearest to the harbour. Owing to the inflam- mable nature of the contents the fire rapidly spread until the interior of the building was one mass of flame, and dense volumes of smoke rolled away in the direc- tion of Parramatta-street. At one time it was thought that the extensive stables im- mediately contiguous to the b...
