Another Victorian Railway Collission. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 24 March 1882

Another Viotorian Railway Collission ON Saturday afternoon last another colliaaion occurred on one of the Melbourne suburban lines, when the Brighton train ran into a stationery Windsor train which should hove properly been shunted, into a siding1. The exuress dashed into the other train at 10 miles an hour and sent it 200 yards, along* the line. No lives were lost and the injuries received, barring the shoclc, have so far not been reported as serious. The scene was of course an indescribable one, both trains be ing crowded. The damage done to the roll ing-stock was but trifling*. Cause of ncoident said to be inability to control the break of the train from the engine after the driver had seen the danger signal.

Emu Plains. [Crowded out from our last issue.] [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 24 March 1882

Emu Plains. From our own Correspondent. [Crowded otit from our last issue.] THE inmates of Mrs. Paul's bar were amused laBt Friday night.week by William Johnson, of Penrith, relating an incident that occurred to him that same evening. It seems Johnson had been, to Springwood, selling1 vegetables and returning home had got beaighted; when within about one hundred yards of the Lap stone Bridge, ho says he saw a man leaning against a rock with a swag on his back ; he stopped the horse, thinking* the man wanted to spetik to him,i but in an instance the swags man had disappeared. . He also reports having seen close to this man a large black and white dog, which also disappeared after passing the cart. We don't for one, moment doubt the veracity of Johnson's statement, as I have made enquiries and have heard exactly the same thing has been seen several times oefore at the same spot. - On one occa sion, some years ago, a pa* ty of men went with the intention of shooting this object, which ...

DOINGS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 24 March 1882

:.£v|^OINGS OF THE DAY. BY PUCK. LESSONS in the philosophy of one side of life may be taken free gratis and for nothing in the Saturday midnight train from Syd ney. Going down it is all anticipation, i'oined to hilarious amusement of the usual cind. You may see in one corner of a first class carriage a boy n his teens murdering the " Sweet By and Bye," with a voice not unlike a nutmeg gratur. In another one in the first stage of intoxication doing anything but assisting the " Midshipmite, whilst a group of old tinners and some young ones nestle yet in another corner telling each other tetories of the Rabelaisian type, all together making up an interesting family party for the time being. Coming back the scene is . changed. The charming scenes of Sydney, .joined to the potent effects of shandy gaff, have worked their usual effects and we now see'a different phase of humanity. This is how the carnage looked at 1.30 a.m. on Sun day morning : The u Sweet By and Bye" and u The Midshipmit...

SOUTH CREEK DANCING SALOON. TO THE EDITOR NEPEAN TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 24 March 1882

SOUTH CREEK DANCING SALOON. TO THE EDITOR NEPEAN TIMES., Sir,-In reply to G. C. Morris will he' be so kind as to draw the distinction Jmore clearly between a private and a public club than he has done in his last attempt.

M. correct as to the length of time his club has been, in existence 1 " A Member " would do well to read my lettei ;again before grumbling about the words "public" and "private." I. thank him for his compliments as touching my epistle, but .1 fail to see how be can gloat (to use his own expression) over his own, assumption, that my last letter only escaped the waste .paper basket, through your im partiality, and yet at the same time suggest that the mere reading of it in the club-room might form part of a literary entertainment.

St. Patrick's Day in Penrith. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 24 March 1882

St. Patriok's Day ia Penri'tlt. J THE anniversary day of Ireland's patron Saint was oelebrated in Penrith by a juvenile concert in aid of the new additions to St. Joseph's Convent, the entire entertainment being1 given by the pupils attending the Con vent school. The Temperance Hall was crowded to excess, and many persons thronged the doorways unable to obtain seats. Indeed, it was generally remarked, that never before in Penrith had any enter tainment been so liberally patronised. The programme was a most extensive, attractive and varied one, containing no less than thirty-four distinct items, and affording scope for ninety of the pupils to take part in. Prom fir«t to last the performance was a most successful and creditable . one re flecting the greatest praise on the Sisters whose skill and patience had accomplished such wonders with purely juvenile talent. Considering the length of the bill of fare provided it was gone through very smartly, and the two ladies who marshalled up t...

DOINGS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 24 March 1882

I>01M.S OF T1IU IU¥. I LATEST BY PUCK. ^?TpThe Licensing- Act is puzzling- most people. ^3It. Dillon, the learned stipendiary magis trate, of, the Sydney Central Police Court ?Bench, has so far been permitted without question to act on his own interpretation of the Act. I very much question whether his deci ions would oe supported by the Supreme Court on some points, however, and I feel certain that on tne question of the bond fide traveller, the learned magistrate might possi bly go astray. It is distinctly stated under clause 64 of the Licensing Act, No. 2, that no person shall be deemed a bond fide travel ler unless he resides at least five miles from the licensed house where he might have received refreshment and accommodation. ' Well, I travelled from Penrith to Sydney on "Saturday last, had been busy in the former ' place all day, and in the evening adjourned to the metropolis, where, arriving at 9.30,1 had about an hour and a half to do my work.

Our Sydney weekly Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 24 March 1882

Our Sydney weekly Letter. According to what DivMackay and Messrs. Vickery, Richardson,' and Higgins say, rab bits are fearfully on the increase in the ' county of Cumberland. 'On Friday last these gentlemen along with Mr. Bruce, Inspector of Stock, waited on Dr. Renwick, Minister of Mines, as a deputation from the Pastures and (Stock Protection Board in order to ask that a portion of the Government grant of £5000 for the destruction of rabbits might be given to them. It appeared from what was stated that the rapid, breeding of these pests to farmers did not take place; in the country districts so much as in the unoccupied Crown ... Lands immediately surrounding Sydney, and particularly at North Bocks, and Durral, the ^inaccessible nature of which rendexed their destruction a matter of gi eat difficul ty. From ' these fastnesses it was shown that the rabbits migrate into the country districts. in large ' numbers, and in point of fact, eat farmers out of house and home. The rate the B...

Miraculous Esoape. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 24 March 1882

Miraculous Esoape. A CORRESPONDENT sends us this jotting: On Friday, the 17th instant, I was an eye witness amongst others to what appeared to be an inevitable and shocking1 fatality by Railway, but was luckily averted by others stopping the train when the victim was well nigh launched into- eternity. The facts of the case are as follows :-About 2 p.m. on the day mentioned, an engine which daily orosses the bridge to Emu came along at a good pace, and being in the habit of notioing the trains pass, I saw beneath the engine, an object in a white dress, apparently a woman, who was being pushed along at rail way speed. Great fear was entertained by the onlookers, lest the train should pass over her before the driver could be signalled to stop. But, fortunately, this was accom plished when near the bridge, and what would evidently have resulted in another victim to railway casualties, was luckily averted, and from beneath the iron horse emerged, seemingly terror-stricken, though thankfu...

The National Gamblers. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 24 March 1882

j it ; :^e Ratio&al GamMers.' As ' men are never in commercial life so rockless in expenditure-and the scheme's s of monetary speculation are never so vast-as when an era of general bankruptcy begins to open, so in the affairs of a state thereis never such a familiarity to the public mind of the inexhaustibleness of national resources as at the very period when they are com mencing to fail. The bankrupt merchant knowing that the most rigid economy would only alter the dividend in his estate by a contemptible fraction of a penny, preserves an appearance of luxury which, however offensive to the sensibilities of his creditors, really affects them in only a slight degree when the magnitude of his liabilities is con sidered. The man who-cebuked his iusolvent debtor for driving to a meeting of his credi tors in a perfectly appointed landau was pro perly answered by the bankrupt when, he pointed out the infinite insignificance of the objection seeing that he was failing for half a...

With a generator of the motive powers fixed in the exhibition, the French engineers of Messrs. Siemens have solved the problem of not only forwardiug a tram car, but of bring ing* it t)ack to its destination. This appli cation of electricity, shows how capable ifc is of the greatest development, and how by modification of details the principle might be applied to railways.
