THE SYDNEY CORPORATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

The Sydney Corporation. The affairs of the Sydney Corporation are exciting interest beyond the bounda ries of New South Wales ; and very soon the capitalists of the old country will be reading of the disgraceful finan cial muddle into which we have allowed our municipal affairs to drift The Melbourne Age thus comments ou our Corporation : — ' The Sydney Corpora tion is a strange institution, and the Sydney burgesses are strange people. The former has for years been proceed ing from bluuder to blunder in the management of the municipal funds, and the hitter have either been totally in the dark or stolidly indifferent. On the; part of both there 'has been either culpable folly, or a lack of that wisdom which the children of this world are .-ai 1 to possess in a superior degree over the children of light. They have either stupidly or wilfully let municipal finan cial matters go adrift, or they have done so of design, confident that, when things come to the worst, the Government must pu...

GREAT MAORI MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

GREAT MAORI MEETING. A spi:oial message from Wellington to the New Zealand Press, dated Maich 25, reports that Te Whiti's annual meeting at Parihaka was held on the 18th instant., when about 3000 natives were pre.ent ; out it was a ueciuea failure from a native point of view, Te Whiti saying the cxpccted one bad not arrived Up to the present his cardinal doctrine has been to preserve peace on the West Coast ; and the Native Minister, fearing he might be driven towards the party which desire violent measures, determined to pay him a visit. Before leaving Opunake, however, Mr. Sheeliau wrote to Te Whiti, stating that he was coining to see him, and not to talk business, but as a matter of per sonal respect in recognition of his stren uous efforts for many years back to picscrve the peace of the West Coast. Tlie only obstacle to such a visit., Mr. Sheehan said, was the presence of the murderer Hiroki, who, he observed, had been allowed to take part in Te. Wliiti's meeting, and he wished...

THE VEND SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

' The Vexd Schejie. The predictions that the vend scheme would break up the coal combination at Newcastle seem likely to be fulfilled. Not only are the masters disagreed 011 the subject, but the men also are at variance. The fate of the 'divided nouse 111 rea tens tne uituerto uniteu phalanx of colliers, who for some years have been able, in concert with their employers, to make the public of New South Wales pay a stiff figure for the black diamonds they require. The men stood firmly together so long as the question of the price of hewing was concerned. They fixed a high rate per ton as the present price of selling coal ; and for them tbe arrangement of the sliding scale as the price of the coal should rise or fall was an admir able settlement of the difficulty. But now that the question has become one as to how much each colliery shall raise, with a view to prevent undue com petition, the men apparently find their interests antagonistic. The vend schemers have allotted Pitch collie...

RELIGION AND DIET. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

RELIGION AND DIET. I It has long been the belief of many eminent scientific persons that the | various forms of religion now prevailing are the direct results of different kinds of food. There have hitherto been ? ? ? ? 1.1.. . ? xi... ? 1 nisupei aoie (miicuiues 111 tne way 01 demonstrating the truth of this theory, but that a man's religion depends upon the kind of food that he uses, and is modified to some extent by the climate iu which he lives, nearly all advanced thinkers are convinced. It is pleasant te be able to announce that at last all possibility of doubt oil this sub ject has been removed by a series of successful experiments narrated by Pro fessor Huxley in his contemplated books on Vegetable and Alcoholic Religions. Some time ago Prof. Huxley was so fortunate as to obtain possession of a largo litter of young children, the pro perty of a Positivist, who desired to devote his whole time to the study of gin, and who held that, inasmuch as there is 110 hereafter, it was ...

ADULTERATION OF DRINK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

Adulteration of Drink. Speaking of the Adulteration Bill the Gvndnijni 'limes says: — The pro visions of the measure are undoubtedly severe — indeed, it may be said to bristle with pains and penalties — but the honest man has nothing to fear from its operation, and it is but just that the dishonest man should be punished. If a person wants food or provisions of any kind, and is willing to pay for it, he should be supplied with the genuine article and not a counterfeit, and on the same principle a man who goes to au hotel and calls foi fermented or spirituous liquors, should be supplied wi^li what he demands in a wholesome state, and not with a vile decoction which is nothing less than a slow poison, and not a verv slow one either. Some publicans appear to think that the pig ment of £30 per annum to the Treasury gives them liberty to poison or drive inad as many of her Majesty's subjects as may visit their public-houses. If the truth — the whole truth — regarding the liquor traffic c...

DIVING FOR AMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

DIVING FOR AMBER. | Tin: labour required is of the seveiest | kind. The ' strong-boned, iracimd ' peasants, described by Carlyle, the I descendants of tne ancient Cures and Szamates, ineu often of reckless and adventurous antecedents — smugglers, perchance, 011 the borderland of ancient Poland, who have pursued their calling with the Cossack bullets whizzing round their heads — these are fit material for i the recruits whom the diving adventure I of the amber reef at Brusterort enlists I in its service. The costume of the diver is as follows A woollen garment covers the entire body. This is again encompassed by an indiarubber dress, made in one piece, but differing in shape from the old-fashioned diving dress, and allowing the diver to lie at full length. The helmet also is of a novel construction. Firmly fastened to it, aud resting 011 the shoulders, is a small air-chest, made of sheet iron. This chest is connected with the air pump in the boat above by an india rubber tubing forty...

THE RECENT NEGOTIATIONS ON THE BORDER DUTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

The Recent Negotiations on the Boiideh Duties. We may lay down as an axiom that New South Wales is entitled to every penny she collects on her borders, as much as she is to every penny she collects at her seaports, provided, of course, that the goods are intended for consumption within her borders. A large community is governed, and the Government raise the necessary revenue by means of Customs dues 011 spirits and other articles. Whenever a gallon of spirits or a pound of tea is consumed in New South Wales the Treasury is entitled to so many shillings, and it does not matter whether the spirits came across the river or across the sea. When this principle is recognised, the question what we should pay to New South Wales, if for convenience sake we under take to collect the Murray dues at Mel bourne, instead of leaving them to be collected at Moama and Albury, becomes simply a matter of account. If the receipt of the Murray Customs arc now £102,000, as Sir Henry Parkes affirms, then ...

Hoi.loway's Ointment and Pills. — Much watchfulness must be exercised as winter advances, and the earliest evidences of ill health must be imme diately checked and removed, or a slight illness may result in a serious malady. Relaxed and sore throat, diphtheria, quinsey, throat cough, chronic cough, bronchitis, and most other pulmonary affections will be relieved by rubbing this cooling Ointment into the skin as near as practicable to the seat of mis chief. This treatment, so simple and effective, is admirably adapted for the removal of these diseases during infancy aud youth. Old asthmatic invalids will derive marvellous relief from the use of Hollo way's remedies, which, have brought round many such sufferers, and re-established health after every other means had signally failed.— Adv.

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. RIVERINA AND THE STOCK TAX. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. Riverina and the Stock Tax. If the purely political impost placed by the Berry party on Riverina stock were abolished, there seems such a disposition moving the public of the two colonies at present 11s would enable prudent and patriotic negotiators to remove at once the obstructions to the Murray trade, which are a disgrace to both colonies. The nresent position of the border duties question, as disclosed by the correspond ence which has just taken place between Mr. Lalor and Sir Henry Parkes, is familiar enough. Owing to the geo graphical position of Riverina, its in habitants obtain the greater portion of their goods from Victoria. The New South Wales Government collects its import duties on those goods at the Murray, just as it collects 011 those that come seaward at Sydney, and other seaports. The collection of duties, how ever, 011 such a boundary its the River Murniy, is most harrassing, vexatious, and costly to the border inhabitants, especially of New S...

EUCALYPTUS CIGARS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

EUCALYPTUS CIGARS. In a late number of the Practitioner there is an article contributed by Dr. Maclean, C.B., 011 the therapeutic power of eucalyptus cigars. Dr. Maclean received from Surgeon-major Mackinnon some leaves of the plant from the south of France, and some cigars made from the leaves, with a request that a trial shouhi oe made of tlieni 111 cases wliere the use of antispasmodics seemed called for.

Among other matters the report stated : — ' The effect of the stock-tax has been, not to raise the price of stock in the Melbourne market (the numbers in the yards being always more than were wanted for local consumption), but to reduce the quan tity available for preserving, to the injury of the company, of the traffic of the railways, as well as of the large number of people employed by the company, as preservers, butchers, lightermen, carpenters, etc., without any benefit in the way of enhanced prices being conferred on the graziers of this colony.

A CURIOUS SURGICAL OPERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

A CURIOUS SURGICAL OPERATION. The success of the experimental re searches of Odlier, Patterson, and others, in regard to the transplanting of various organic tissues, lately led to 11 remarkable experiment in practical sur gery. The case is reported at length in a recent number of the Lancet. A marine engineer had broken both bones of the left forearm, a little above the wrist. The arm was kept in splint; for some weeks, but the bones refused to unite. Eight months elapsed before the man reached land, and then he entered the Glasgow Iiifirumrv for treatment. Three separate operations of setting the bones were performed, and all failed to secure a union. A year and ;u half after the accident the man returned to hospital to have an amputation performed, tlie hand and lower part of the arm being useless. Although amputation was unanimously recommended by the surgeons, Dr. Patterson was granted permission to try any plan he chose to save the limb, and accordingly planned the following o...

A BUFFALO FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

A BUFFALO FIGHT. The Cape buffalo lias short horns, expanded at their bases, so that they almost meet in the middle line of the forehead. It is found all over Central and South Africa, and is a formidable animal when wounded, as, quite regard less of tlie cloud of smoke which follows the shot aimed at it, it charges right through it, and so does frequent injury to the experienced hunter. Its general colour is blue-black, but in some cases it has a reddish tinge. The Hon. W. H. Driimmond gives the following account of a fight between two bulls of which lie was an eye-witness. After having had his attention attached by a loud clattering noise, he i*emarks that, 'on looking through the edge of the last thicket which had concealed them, I saw two buffalo biills standing facing each other with lowered heads, and, as j I sat down, to watch, they rushed ! together with all their force, producing tie loud crash I had before heard.

THROWING THE SHOE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

THROWING THE SHOE. O.nt; of tlie best-known customs con nected with shoes is that of throwing tlieni after a wedding party on their way from clinvch or elsewhere. Tt is, say tho authors of Lancashire Folklore, a relic of Anjlo-Saxon or Danish usages, along with many other wedding usages of uncieut origin. The Lancashire custom is to throw au old shoo on leaving the house to lie married, as a preventive of future unhappiness, and au omen of good luck and prosperity. In Norfolk it is also tho. custom to throw the shoe after the wedding parly on proceeding to the eluireli. In York shire, according to a writer in Hone's 7'ab'e Book, in 1827, there was a custom called ' trashinsr.' which signified nplt in people with old shoes oil tlieir return from Church on the wedding day. 'Trashing' had at first some raison d'etre, but as time went on this bee line forgotten, and the custom was indis criminately practised among the lower orders. The Kentish custom is for one of the groomsmen to throw...
