Mercenary Marriages. [?] and Daily News— Madras.) [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 15 May 1875

Mercenary Uarrhies. {JliemmoL ami Dai/j Boto—Xidrin. ) j ** The good folks at home ' are generally supposed to be the most business-like and money-making nation in the world, though 'Cousin Jonathan' runs them hard at a trade. This business-like j frame of mind for some rears oast has made people estimate 'affections'' as; being worth so much money, and, if a i man jilts a girl to whom he is engaged, - be has to pay for the deterioration in her ! affections from the loss of the amount ! she has wasted on him. In former days, I however, the practice went much farther, - and tbe wife herself was sold, affections j included, for a certain sum down in ' hard cash. It is true that there are i but few well authenticated instances of! this practice having been carried out in I England, not nearly so many as the ) French writers were wont to mate out when they described Smithfield, or rather 'Sniffd,' as being the market where husbands habitually exposed their j wives for sale ; but still t...

Australia Wines. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 15 May 1875

Australian Wines. fKnm tie Rowr, F&r**rg 2.1 The wines of Italy, though numerous and abundant, suffer from lack of taste and aroma, and those of Greece from inability to stand long voyages. Mr. ViateSf is, however, of opinion that 'at their best— that is, matured by modem age — the Greek wines are un eotsSed «*e by certain exceptional jiwiiTi I'1*- tine United States scat 8* samples of then* wines, and tHose Urom Calabmia exhibited a marked superiority, owing, perhaps, to the fact that European vines are exclusively cultivated in that province, while in the other wine growing districts of America the indigenous varieties of vines are grown. Perhaps the greatest triumph achieved at Vienna was the surprising success of the youngest of wine producing countries, Australia, and that triumph would have been greater but for the negligence of an agent in charge omitting to give the jury an opportunity of tasting 23 of the samples from Victoria. Five samples of Hermitage had already ...

DAMAGE BY FLOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 15 May 1875

DAMAGE BY FLOOD. The flood in die Fitzroy having now subsided, (he time has come to effect the necessary repairs to the River Bm^ and to protect the town from in jury in die future. The damage already inflicted renders the expenditure of a large sum of money for this purpose absolutely necessary. A survey has been made of the River Bank by two competent professional gentlemen, and an estimate given of the amount required to make a complete and permanent job. The total roughly stated is j£i6,ooo. Three-fourths of this sum, however, is for the protection of the bank between Blind and Croco dile Creeks — a work of too great a mag nitude for the means at the disposal of the Municipal authorities ; and for this reason it has been reluctantly per mitted to stand in abeyance, although every year's delay has been productive of SI results. The land in that portion of the municipality was nearly all sold by the Government ten years ago. At that time there was a broad esplanade fronting the so...

Henceforth, [trust freedom will exist there, as in every part of my dominions.' Unfbrtunatelv another Royal Message supplies a very unwel come commentary upon these generous words. The King and Chiefs of die Gold Coast protest against the policy of immediate emancipation announced by Governor Strahan in his proclamation of December 17th, as inconsistent with die conditions offered to and accepted by them on November 3rd. Then, they allege, they were told that, though the acquisition of slave property indie future was prohibited, yet they were allowed to retain their present bondsmen and bo...
