A DUCHESS IN THE CHAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 12 January 1870

A DUCHESS IN THE CHAIR. Wednesday, says Tint London Star of September 10, was the ladies' day in Gloucester, and we should think quite a red-letter day in the calendar of the Badminton Farmers' Club. Of this club the Duke of Beaufort, as we learn from The Western Daily Press, is chairman, but it happened on Wednesday that, although he was announced to preside at the annual dinner of the Club connected with the annual agricultural and horticultural show, preside he could not, being called away on important business. Under these circumstances ner virace me uucness undertook to sup ply her husband's place, and in defiance of the super stitions that prevail in some quartes about 'the pro per sphere for women,' the noble chairwoman proposed the toasts and made the speeches precisely ns the Duke might have done. Moreover, there were a number of other ladies among the 300 who sat down to the Bad minton dinner, and one of them, a very young lady, Lady Blanche Somerset, replied to the ' Heal...

What is that which, when thrown out, may be caught without hands ?- A hint. A BEGGAB in Dublin bad been a long time beseiging an old gouty, testy, limping gentleman, who refused his mite with much irritability, on which the mendicant said, ' Ah, please your honour's honour, I wieii vfiiir Jipjirt. wfu siA tanitar ns vnur fcnefl ' An eloquent reporter for a western paper, describing the condition of a family, says that 'there is no apparent trail of a serpent, and the proverbial skeleton is too deep in the recess of the deepest closet to daze the eye with its glitter or grate upon the ear its sepul chral rattle.' A CLEBGYMAK on his way to church one Sunday morning recently saw a boy on the river bank fishing. ' My boy,' said lie, ' don't you know that it is wicked to catch fish on Sunday?' 'Guess I han't sinned much yet,' said the boy, without taking his eyes from the cork; 'han't had a bite.' Minister coughed and passed on.

THE PASTORAL INTEREST—ITS CONDITION AND PROSPECTS [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 12 January 1870

TliE PASTORAL INTEREST— ITS CON DITION AND FKOSPECTS The industrious pioneer of colonisation, in braving difficulties amid the solitudes of the remote interior, is Bbut out by his very avoca tion from opportunities and discoveries that, if known to him, would make life more easy and his pursuit more profitable. These it shall be our duty to chronicle and depict, so that tJiey may become the property of those whos ? wel fare they are calculated to promote. Tbn times loudly demand that some effort should be made on bebalf of the main interest of the coloay. It must be conceded that the pastoral interest is not now what it was years ago. Not that the numbers of our herds of cattle, our sheep, and our horses are less than they formerly were, taken together, but that the meausonce abund antly pos:essed by their owners have some how sensibly diminished, and wealth hasslipped rom the grasp of its former possessors, so that the heartv. haDnv condition of thines once pre valent, has disappea...

SURRENDER OF VALENCIA. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 12 January 1870

SUS8ENDER OP VALENCIA. (From the Times.) Valencia was eurroudcred andet oiroum stanoeB anriogouB to those which determined the fall of Csdit an! Malaga towards the end Of last year. Then, as bow, the Republican party had takes up arms with a great flourish then, as now, after a short exchange of shots behind a formidable looking arraj of barrioadeB, the heart of the combatants seemed to fail. They asked for a brief sus pension of hostilities under pretext of bestow ing their cares open the ' dead and wounded ; they then opened negotiation for a capitula tion under honourable conditions ; and upon receiving the intimation that they must give themselves up at discretion, although tbej ventured on a languid renewal of the contest, they ended by bokt'wg the white flag. These remarks are not in the least meant as a reproaoh. The Spaniard in every rank of life is a brave man, and holds his life at re higher rate than the most heroic of his neighbours. But, like his neighbours, ho only fig...

INDEPENDENCE IN NOVA SCOTIA. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 13 January 1870

INDEPENDENCE Df NOVA SCOTIA. It is well known that flie ' Blue Noses,' as the Nova Scotians are called in America, very strongly object to being included in tho New Dominion with Canada, and the revolutionary sentiment prevailing in consequence, judging from the 6eries of ' Songs for the people,' appearing in the columns of The Halifax Chronicle, is becoming bold. We quote the opening stanzas of a song entitled ' Marching from the Sea' :— When British drums arc Bilent And British guns are gone, We'll wear our chains no longer, We'll bow us down to none. The North may come against us, The gladder we will be, For we'll call our men together, And we'd march up from the sea ; 'Twill be free and loyal marching, That marching from the sea. Let Canada come eastward, With all her traitor knaves, We'll meet them on the mountains, And give them foreign graves ; With rifle and with bayonet We'll keep the country free, And we'll die upon the mountains For our homes beside the sea— Men can die u...

SUGAR GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 13 January 1870

SUGAR GROWING. A very few years ago the man who said that the Australian colonies would soon largely en gage in the cultivation and manufacture of sugar, and that before tho expiration of the year ISSp they would in all probability more than supply their own consumption of that article, would havo been re garded as a visionary ; while at the present moment such a statement niav be considered as a A-orv modest one, and as certain of the completost realisation. It was at one time, and comparatively recently, sup posed that sugnr could not be produced in these colonies with anything like a prospect ot a fair return from the capital required to be invested in tho pursuit. Ths: price of labour was supposed to bo an insuperable obstacle to success, and the conditions of soil and clin *tc woro more than suspected of being unfavourable lolhe growth of the varioties of cane from which the greatest portion of tho world's sugar is extracted — beet sugar being then, and to a great oxtcnt yet, c...

JOME OF MY EABLY ADVENTURES. (bv ak old eroETSitis.) MY FIHST FOX HUNT. [ Aiian oldish, fellow now, at least what young people call old, although I am not quite three score roars of age ; yet I have an excellent memory, and jan recall -without difficulty the events that occurred ifhen I was a boy. In my library there is an old looting piece of furry-stuff that has been caret ully mounted and preserved, which an English sports man, would at once recognize as ' tne orusn. J- ow, ibout this brush I have something to say. It is si, tiophy from my young days ; and thus, as sports men make a brush' out of a tail, I will make a tale jut of the brush. It was when I was about nineteen years of age that I was asked to spend my Christmas vacation with an uncle who lived in Surrey. This was a great beat, for my uncle Edward was very rich, much more so than my own father, He was fond of hunt ing and shooting, and liked people to share his sport ?w§h him. He kept Bevcral capital horses, and had f...

THURSDAY, JANUARY 13, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 13 January 1870

THURSDAY, JANUARY 13, 1870. We have no doubt that the public generally, throughout this colony, will welcome cor dially the return of Mr. Cowper to office, and the intelligence that he is now Colonial Secre tary and Vice-President of the Executive Council really means that he is the head of the Government. There will be much regret for the retirement of Mr. Robertson. We have no faith in the value of mysterious hints as to the causes of the retirement of this gen tleman, and the plain truth of the matter, so far as we know, ought to be stated. Otherwise i people at a distance might suppose that Sir. '. Robe:tson had committed some crime, or perpe- i trated some dishonourable action which made it ; necessary for him to vail his face. The simple fact is that, with the sanguine tempera ment which has so often hurried men of quick minds into erroneous speculations, he engaged in enterprises for the settlement and colonisa tion of this country; the results of wnich will be beneficially f...

ROYALTY IN EXILE. A LADY'S INTERVIEW WITH QUEEN ISABELLA AND THE QUEEN MOTHES, The Home Journal publishes an interesting letter from a New York lady, describing a recent interview with Royalty in Exiler-Quoen Isabella, at Trouville and the Queen Mother, at Chateau Mou Desir.

On a shrubby knoll, whose broad gravelled walks extend to the water's edce. and comsmndinc a fino view of the bay, is situated, at St Adresse (a suburb of Havre), Men Desir, the chateau of Queen Christine of Spain.
