Jews in Portugal. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 9 May 1891

Jews in Portugal The formalities attending the settlement ; of the estate of the late King of Portugal call to mind many of the interesting tales that have come down to us of political intrigue in the little kingdom. In Portugal, as else where, tbe Jews were for many years the -viotiirs of grevicus persecution, and at one time a decree of banishment was promulgated ! against both Jews and converted Jews. In spite, however, of all persecution, ihe Jews 1 continued to increase in number, to thrive in trade, and to aohieve a certain social dis tinction. After a while Hebrew blood crept into high families, and by means of certain intsr-marriages now and again royalty itself acquired a strain of tbat same blood. So notorious became the advancement cf the Jews that it was said of Portugal tbat while one-half the nation looked for the coming of Dom Sebastian the other half looked for tbe coming of the Messiah. Dom Joseph insisted, in hia time, that every Jew in Portugal, and every one tain...

VICTORIA'S FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 9 May 1891

Victoria's Future. The census just taken shows that the popu lation of Victoria is fast increasing. Since last census we have increased in number by a quarter of a million, whilst Melbourne has risen in rank of population to the fourth or fifth city in the British empire ; in fact the metropolis accounts for a large proportion of the increase. The country is not so thickly populated now as in 1881, whilst settlement was not so far advanced at that period as now. An analysis of the town and country will be interesting under the circumstances, as showing whether there is any danger yet of our becoming over populated. Melbourne within a radius of 10 6q. miles contains 644,661. Melbourne has increased by 206,238 during the last ten years, but the whole of the rest of the colony has only increased by 65,263 persons. This state of afiairs shows that the metropolis is a great attraction for the country ; so much so that the city has made extraordinary strides in the direction population at...

Catherine's Cruelty. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 9 May 1891

Catherine's Cruelty. The VeritzinB were nobles of enormous wealth and power. Paul held a high office in court. One night, glittering with jewels and orders, the young prince, who was one of the handsomest men in Bussia, danced in a quadrille opposite the em press. As she passed him in the dance ehe fancied ! that hie eyes scanned her gross figure with covert amusement. After the quadrille she beckoned to him, and with a smile, handed him her tiny ivory tablets, containing seven pages, one for each day in the week. On the first was written : 'The imperial ball-room, St. Peters burg.' On the la6t : ' The mines, Siberia.' He read it slowly ; his face grew gray as that of a corpse ; he bowed low, kissed her hand, and withdrew, ' takine,' says the old chronicle, ' his wife, the beautiful Princess of Novgorod, with him. 'he was heard to say as he left tbe ball-room : ? ' My minutes are numbered ; let us not lose one.' Flight or resistance was impossible. The hold of Catherine on her victi...

General News. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 9 May 1891

General News. Mr Turner, M.L.A, newly-ap- J pointed Commissioner of Trade and Customs and Minister of Public Health, addressed a meeting of his constituents Friday at the St. Kilda town-hall. He thanked the electors tor the honor which they had conferred upon him by reelect ing as their representative without opposition and explained his reasons for accepting the position which was offered to him by Mr Munro. His only regret was that a difficulty should have arisen between Mr Frank Stnart and Mr Monro in the matter, but as far as he himself was concerned he did not feel that he had done any injustice to Mr Stuart in accepting the position when the Cabinet offered it to him. Mr Munro, Mr Shiels, Mi* Wheeler, and Mr Peacock were all present, and ad dressed the meeting. At its conclu sion a motion was carried un animously endorsing Mr Turner's action in accepting office. Mrs Minnie Breen, of Berrima, is probably the youngest widow in Australia. Her husband died on Sunday, aged 23 : the...

Gundowring. — ? ? (From Our Own Correspondent.) A meeting was held on Saturday evening to wind up the Cricket Club | for the season, and to receive the secretary's report.

A telegram received from Hall's Creek, Kimberley, Western Australia, states that a ton of stone from the Jubilee Reef yielded 65oz. 17dwt. 12gr. of smelted gold.

Spanish Beauties. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 9 May 1891

Spanish Beauties. It is commonly thought that Spanish women are dark beauties, and that the; know nothing and do nothing beyond going to church and giving themselves to flirtation. We have here as many mistakes .ae there are propositions. In the first place, all the women in Spain are not brunettes, in spite of what Lord Byron may have said to ac credit the theory. As a rule the reverse holds good. They are usually fair, with blue eyes, in Cadiz, while even the Basque women often have auburn ox ted hair. For a year, or even two years, the little girl Is handed over to her ama, or wet nurse, usually a low, vulgar psasant woman, who teaches ber to speak loudly, to cry for every thing, and spoils her more completely than even her own mother might have done. These bad habits, so early inculcated; never fail tooling tober through life. , ? .JWben at laet the nurse is dismissed 4kt« child doeB just what she } ikes. , Shajdinee at , playmates are the servfcntB^'imd , $ha jacBYt* ; gofes tb...
