THE USES OF LAUGHTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 16 April 1864
£IE USES OF LAUGHITER. (From the tlrclcly Dispatch.) LooD Noaves introduced some remarks in his inaugural address as President of the third department of the Social Scienco Asso ciation, for whichl we heartily thank him. They aro well worth considering just now, when so many are talking with more or less knowledge, atbout the best means of making working men's institutions popular. -Wo lave hlald ome expeorionco of the difficulties attending the working of these institutions, and have found them not unfrcquently fail because grown men, intelligent enough though uneducated, objected to be lectured and drilled, patronised and patted on the back by amateur, well-intentioned people, a grade higher in the social scale, but per haps inferior in strong natural qommon sense. We have seen full-grown, hard working men, comno to a ragged-school and sit down contentedly with children, with tlhe earnest desire of learning to read and write, and quito willing to do tihe best to make up to a small...
ON THE UTILITY OF PLANTING TREES. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 16 April 1864
ON TUBE PTILITY OF PLANTING TRIES, ' ' (From thc Ieoman.) Sn?,-That forests, or a prevalenco of trees or-shrubby plants, have a most important influence over the amount of rainfall is an established truth. Whoen forests are do stroyed the plains suffer from the double evils of drought and flood. "The rain that the forests would store up for theom, having no reservoirs whoro it might be stored and economized, pours in torrents down the hill sides until the rivers, swelling and spread iig,:cover, drown, and devastate the plains." The rainfall can be' altered by clearing or planting treeoos. Certain departments of the south of France ard periodically subject to floods ; the cause is traced' to the destruction of the forests. "But' that lonely cinder in the sora, the Island of Ascension, furnishes thel most' curious illustration: of thiis fact. There was but one fresh-water spring in the island; treo-felling dried it up, and troo plantitng brought back the lost spring.- Roe gtons have b...
EVIDENCE "BEFORE COMMITTEE." [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 16 April 1864
EInDEtCxe " nEsORs: CO.sn1TrTErE."-It is much harder to obtain information than some people may think ; most persons don't know anything, and those who do don't say what they know. Hore is a real episode from the history of an inquiry, which took place four or live years ago, into the desirability ofmaking it new line of railway on the Border. A witness was giving what is called " traffic evidence," in justification of the alleged need of a railway, and this is what occured :-Mr. Brown (tihe cross examining counsel for the opponents of the new line): Do you mean to tell the committee that you over saw an inhabited house in that valloy ? Witness: Yes, I do.-Mr. Brown: Did you ever see a vehicle there in all your lifo? Witnes:s Yes, I did.-Mr. Brown: Very good. Some other questions woro put, which led to no tlhing particular ; but just as the witness--a Scotchmtan-was leaving the box, thoe learned gentleonman put one more questiot : I tamt instructod to ask you, if the vehicle you saw...
ELEANOR'S VICTORY. CHAPTER V. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 16 April 1864
EELEANOR'S VICTORY. DY TIE AUTIIOR Or LADY AUDLEY'SB EORET, &C. CHAPTER V. Miss VANE walked very slowly homeward through the hot, breathless summer night. She was too sorrowful, too much depressed by thbo sudden disappointment which had fallen like a dark shadow ,pon the close of thbo day that had begun so brightly, to boeombar rassed by any uncomfortable sense of her loneliness in the crowded thoroughfare. No one molested or assailed her-she walked sorene in her youth and innocence': though the full radiance of the lamplight rarely fell upon her face without some, pass ing glance of admiration resting there'also. She never once thought that her father had 'done wrong in leaving her to walk alone through that crowded Parisian street. In the unsellfishness of her loving nature she scarcely remembered her disappointment about the theatre : not even when she passed tbhe brilliantly lighted edifice, and looked, a little wistfully perhaps, at the crowd upon the threshold. She was...

THE BRITISH ABROAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 16 April 1864
TIHE BRITISH ABROAD. A correspondent of the Times, who states that he has had fifteen years' experience in various parts of the world, says : " I believe we bring all our troubles upon ourselves, and most richly deservo thom; for wherever an Englishman 'goes, he carries with him the belief that his country is so rich and powerful, that he himself is such an aufgust animal, that he can trample the manners and cherished customs of other nations under his feet with impunity. I have soon this over and over again, and often, when expecting a row, have boon surprised to see the alger of some justly irate foreigner, cool down into a sort of contompt, when he discovered his insulter to be 'only an Eng lishman.' I have soon things done abroad by Englishmen, which, if done by any for eigner in this country, would bring upon him instant punishmentat the lhands of the people. I don't want to swell my letter very largo ; but I will give you an instanco out of many. Two or three days after we too...
HEMP. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 16 April 1864
IIEMI'. (From the Yeomen.) TuH other day we happened to visit that anomalous part of our suburbs which has no specific namo on the map, and therofore has boon dubbed, not inappropriatoly, "NoMan's Land" by which is to bo understood that very ill-favoured triangle of territory which oxtends between the Yarra, E?nerald-hill, and Sandridgo. In this remarkable region -the best bits of which recall to the Lon doner in a very lively manner the worst patches of Rlotherhitho, Stopney, and thie Isle of Dogs, where the water is earthy and the earth commonly watery, burnt into dust now and then after a very long summer, but more generally inclining to the swamp, a nursing park for frogs, but limited hitherto in its human inhabitants to boat-builders, scavengers, and mudlarks-Mr. Miller has established his new steam rope factory, which, as every one is courteously allowed to inspect, every one that cares for somne thing interesting and now in this rather dull city should visit. The stranger wil...
GUNDAGAI GOLD-FIELD. To the Editor of the Herald and Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 16 April 1864
GUNDAGAI GOLD-FIELD. To the Editor of the Ierald anod Chronicle. Smn,-Would you permit me, through your columns, to give a word of caution to parties who may think of leaving their homes to come to this gold-field. I think the correspondent of the Yass Courier ought to be a little more careful in his reports. 11o must be very little acquainted with mining matters in "deed, when he compares some of the claims hero with the best that was at Lambing Flat. eIo must have had his information from a very indiffeotnt source. These diggings will give employment to about two hundred mone; at the lowest calculation there are four hundred minors hero at the present time, so you may judge what will naturally to the consequence of so many coining to ia place that will scarcely support half the number that are hero. There is very little chance of the workings extend ing in any direction, as the lead at the upper end is almost traced to the surfiaco; at the lower end it is too poor to pay for worki...

THE EXRIBITION.. To the, Editor of tit Herald and OCroaiclc. Src,-Mr. Stewart said, in his last lotter, that I said in my lettor, " that I was not a judge." This I deny. I never said any such thing. I say now, as I said before, that I was a judge of the imported implemoonts; but not of the colonial implements; thereforo MIr. Stowart's statemont isinaccurato. If it is iMr. Stowart's object to put the society on a good footing,:. he should takeo Mr. Lansdown's advice and join the committee, --Homay -have a chance to carry out his object; but he must have beltter ideas than he had of exhibiting, to be of any boneoit to the society, for 'it is :well-k? own to any person that has had. anything, to:,.do with the management of.oxhibitions in, the old, countryi.that it would be no use for aneoxhibitor, to take an-imple meout to an exhibition, and expect a prize- paid, befro it has boon proved to kIow if it is worthy. of.

FRANCE. February 25th. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 16 April 1864
FIIi AA. February 25th. The loading journals: in Paris state that France, in spilote of its sympathy 'for' Denmark, should recogniso tho wishes of the Gormans .in Holstein, and assort.that Schloswig ought to be incorporated with the German nation, .nd, moreover, that the French policy on the Elbe ought not to differ from that which oharactorised it on the Vistula and Hincio. Should Germany obtain this satisfaction, the other Danish provinces might bounited'to Swo don, and by this. means the entrance to the Beiltio would be guarded. Thoi journals further state that this course would establish the principle of nation alities, and Germany couoldthon apply thatprinciplo to Poland and Italy.
