No title [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 30 March 1889
Tub approaching opening of Parliament is awaited with considerable curiosity. The Dibbs Government, as everybody is aware, upon meeting the new House after the elec tions, were met with a direct want of con fidence, to carry which three recognised general supporters of the Ministry — or avowed opponents of Sir Henry Parkes, which amounts to precisely the same thing — were induced to cast their, lot amongst the rank: aad; file of the Opposition upon the understanding that on the party returning to power the land laws would be immedi ately amended. ? By a majority of four the House distinctly refused to concede the Government thatfairtrial which under the cir cumstances they were entitled to, and con sequently the reins of government fell again into the hands of the old veteran, Sir Henry Paries, who, with his Ministry — the com position of which must have come as a sur prise upon the Premier's old friends and colleagues, — have all been returned, the out going 'Government having stud...

Attempt to Explode a Mine. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 3 April 1889
A(f4'iiii-( lo Explode a Mine What appears to have been a deliberate and dia bolical attempt to explode tlie Bulli mine was for tunately discovered and frustrated on Friday night last, nud probably prevented a similar catastrophe to that of the game date two years ago. On the evening stated, after the day shift knocked off, tlie night overman, according to Ms regular custom, entered the uiiuc for inspection previous to thu nJKht shift commencing work. On nroceedine with his inspection he discovered that the two main sepuratlon doors for directing the current of iiir into certain divisions of the workings, or district*, ns they are technically termed, had been wilfully opened and propped by some person or persons. Thosu doors are all self-closing under ordinary cir cuuistuucejs, mul iu this iustauce their being blocked back showed deliberate intent. The effect of the doors being opened was that the current of air, which &bould pass through tho district well known to he apt to...
A Valuable Horse. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 3 April 1889
A Valuable Horse. The influence of one good sive can scarcely be estimated ,? but in the Live-Sto«k Journal Almmac for 1889, Mr. W. Burdott-Coutts, M.P., calculates that the celebrated hackney stallion, Triffit's Firewny, represents in his stock a money value of £250,000. He is rising thirty years old and has been at the stud for over twenty-five years. He has averaged ovor one hundred foals a year, the last prices of which are given at £100 each, j So great is his influence that his stock can ; be recognised at sight, and an instance is ! given of foals by him (from a cart mare) which as (ive-yc:ir-olds were sold in London at 300 to 400 guineas the pair.
Six Fires a Day. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 3 April 1889
Six Fires a. Day There was a general impression in the public mind that fires in London had in creased during 1888, and (observes a London contemporary) it is satisfactory to find that it is inaccurate. According to the official report of the fire brigade, though fires in 1888 were of a severe kind they sank in number from 23G3 in 1887 to 1*884 in the past year. Six a day is, however, quite enough., and we ave not suve thtvt the trur explanation of the decrease, if it could be given, would content anybody. The year 1888 was comparatively a prosperous year, and insurance offices know that it is in un prosperous years that fires grow frequent. It is as much relief to the struggling trades man to get rid of his unsaleable stock and be compensated for it, as if customers were competing to take it away.

Origin of Two Famous Stories. 'No man ever led a more peculiar career than Mark Twain did in Nevada, said Mr. T, C. Bates, of the Sage-brush State to Sax Francisco Exajiixeh reporter.- 'I remem ber well when, in 1861, he came to Carson with his brother, Orion Clemens, the new Secretary of the Territory.
