With a dismal apprehension Mac leod inoKea turwara to this moment. He had seen her on the *tafie bid a pathetic good-by to to her lover, and there it was becutifal enoofb — with her shy coquetries, end her winning wavs, and the timid, reluctant confession of her love. But there was EOthin^ at all beauti ful about thu ordeal through which he must pass. It was harsh and horrible. He trembled even as he thought of it. The last day of his stay in London arrived ; he rose with a aens- o'tome awful doom bang-f ing over him that he could in no vise sh ke off. It wae a strange day, too — the world o Liondon vaguely ebining through a pale fog' the sun a globe of red fire. There was hoar frost on the window-ledges ; at lest winter seemed about to begin.

District Courts Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 11 July 1879

District Courts Bill. On Thursday, the 26th of June, che Attomey^General (Hon. W. H. Bundpy) moved in the House of Assembly the second reading of this Bill, and upon that occasion made a most excellent speech, and showed by his remarks that he had given the subj'jcfc his full thoughts and a great deal of research. The object of the Bill itself is to estab lish District Courts having jurisdiction with very full powers in common law, equity, ejectment, interpleader, replevin, criminal law, testamentary causes, mat rimonial causes and insolvency. The places where these district courts are intended to be established are at present unknown, but one will probably be in the North in the vicinity of James town, and the other in the South-East at Mount Gambier. There is certainly very much to be said in favor of the Bill, as it will afford great facilities to suitors and others residing in the country in the saving of time, trouble and expense, as, instead of at present, persons having to tr...

Indeed, a move has already been made in this direction. Julia Matthews, tbe greatest Grand Duchess of her day, was a Victorian, and at present Miss Alice May, advertised as the Australian Night ingale, is playing in London in opera bouffe. Miis E. Aibtrnia Wagenheim has worthily re presented Sydney in £ngiand and the colonies, and Amy Sherwin, with her thrush-like voice, has left us to polish her great talent in Italy. But in Melbourne are at present three girls who, under the tuition of Madams Iiucy Chambers, herself an Australian contralto, bid fair to occupy brilliant positions upon ^the concert atage.
