Enoch Arden in Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 26 May 1877
Enoch Arden in Victoria. THE old adage that truth is sometimos stranger than fiction, receives something like verification in tho following, which (says the ' Bendigo Advertiser)' is authentic in all particulars save tho names of the principal "dramatis ;> some." A short timo sinco, a young sailo,', second officer of a ship trading to the Mauritius from Melbourne, left his wife living at Williamstown. At Port Louis illness seized him, und he was left in the hospital seriously ill. On tho ai-rival of the ship tho wife saw tho captain, who gave hor facts concerning the health of her husband. Subsequently another arrival from Mauritius told her ho had heard that hor husband " died in the hospital," and upon this vory unreliable authority, sho concluded herself a widow, and in this capacity took a situation in the provinces, and aftor a time say about twelvemonths from her husband leaving-she married her employer's brother. Meanwhile the Enoch Ardon of the narrative was not dead at a...

France and Germany. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 26 May 1877
France and Germany. RESPECTING the antagonism between France and Germany, an American paper tims writes :-" On the German frontier France lies open to invasion.. Her strongest fortifi- cations are Li possession of Germany, who has strengthened them enormously. Frauce, in view of this, wanted to build an inner Hue of fortifications which might give check to un invading army. Again tho Berlin Government intei ferred. The French must elect to fight Germany at once,' or remain open to German invasion. Wisely again the French Government has given way. There is a tido in tho affairs of nations, as of men, which must be taken at the flood, and French affairs have been on the ebb since the failure of Napoleon III. to aid Austria in tho war with Prussia, which culminated at Sadowa. French politicians recognise the fact ; still there is a limit beyond which it would not be safe to push; tho national susceptibilities of the Gallic people, and this limit would appear to be pretty nigh reached j...
Napoleon and Russia. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 26 May 1877
Napoleon and Russia. THE..great Napoleon, according to O'Meara, in his V "Voice from St. Helena," says,-7f In tho course of a. few years 'Russia..will have Constantinople, the greatest part of Turkey, and all Greece. This ,I hold to be as certain as if it had already taken place. Almost, all the,cajoling and .flattering,.which Alexander practised towards me .was to gain my "consent to effect, tins , object. I would not consent foreseeing, that the equilibrium of, Europe would-be destroyed. In tho , natural ! course of things, in a few years, Turkey must fall to Russia. The greatest part of her population are Greeks, whom you,may.say: are Russians. Tho Powers it would injure, and who would oppose it ora England, Franco, Prussia, and Austria.

The Treasurer on the Defences. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 26 May 1877
Tl^e Treasurer on the Defences. THE subject of the defences of so important a city as Sydney, (observes the 1 Australasian ' of Saturday) is really one. of too serious a character for such a melancholy exhibition of helpless imbecility as that furnished by Mr. Piddington when replying to a question put by Mr Dibbs tho other eveuing. It is easy to imagine plenty of reasons why a Minister, might not consider measures of defence ueeessary. He might think that the place was sufficiently defended, that the Imperial squadron would be equal to all exigencies, or that the apprehended hostilities would not arise. Any such reasons as these would keep the qu33tion within the field of rational discussion, and would allow of debate. Buc it was simply distressing to lind a man in the position in which Mr. Piddington is placed thinking defences unnecessary because he " relies on the humanity of the present Czar of .Russia." This brilliant remark being greeted by a laugh from some less trustful mem...
Kalafat. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 26 May 1877
Kalattit. THE correspondent of the ' Brisbane Courier,1 .who has. lately traversed that part of thc Danube which is now the seat of war in '.European Turkey, writes us follows regarding Kalafat: " The quietness with which the Russians are pursuing their preparations ou the baúles of the Danube is a proof of terriblo earnestness of purpose, and they have apnareutly resolved that it shall bo through no fault of theirs if the ; campaign is not carried to a successful issue. The Turks havo in a desultory manner bombarded most of the fortresses defending the north ' bank of the rivor, but up to the present their opponents have made no oilensi ve movements. Tho latest news repirts tho bombardment of the fortress of Kalafat, which is a strong position on tho south-west frontier, of Wallachia, opposite the Turkish stronghold of Widdin, and ax ifc has quite recently been materially strengthened by earthworks, and has received considerable additions to its armament, they have appa- rently bee...

The Victorian ELections. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 26 May 1877
Tbc Victorian Elections. , THE * Argus ' says :-It is useless to speculate on the future. As far as we eau judge from a necessarily hasty 'glance at the lists, the constituencies have on this occasion furnished the country with an Assembly such as never yet controlled the destinies of "Victoria. We have had. many curious HOUSOÎ since we have received that priceless booài which still goes by the name of the " New Constitution," but hitherto they have always contained some men of mark, whoso lead the small fry could follow, like flocks of sheep after their respective wethers. But on this occasion the olectors in their wisdom have taken care to reject nearly every candidate who has the slightest pretensions to oiiisi il experience, or even common sagacity. Considered as a whole, we. may safely say tUut the new House will fitly represent the ignorauoo- utid 1 passion of the country ; and if it should be that no particular harm follows its instalment in power, we may safely attribute the...

Petrifaction of Washington's Body. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 26 May 1877
Petrifaction of Washington's Body. THE following extraordùiary circumstance, if true, ia related by a coiTORppndent of tho « Sao Francis«? Chronicle.' . We yiritod Washington's tomi* tj-iliy at Mannt Vernon, Va., some twelve miles from the cit/, down the Potomac, and we had.the iinusu.il privi- lege of beholding the mortal remains of the immortal Washington. Visitors ti the tomb will remember that the west of the saino has I for several years been in a falling condition, and in great need of repair. A few dava since, part of it tumbled into the tomb, completely esvering the sarcophagus of Wash- ington, and also that of Martha Washington. In order to repair the damage in a competent manner it was found necessary to r3tnove them a few feet from their resting place. The one containing the remains of Martha Washington waa removed first, but attracted' no attention. But the unusual weight of the one containing the remains of Washington at once attracted the attention and aroused the curi...
The Electoral Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 26 May 1877
The Electoral Bill. MR. R. B. SMITH asked the Legislative Assembly last night to affirm that a bill should bo forthwith introduced by the Govern- ment to make better provision for the representation of the people in Parliament, and in recommending his motion to the House : the hon. member went at some length into the reasons that had induced him to bring the question forward in thia manner, and pointed but the anomalies that at present exist in our electoral system. No one disputed the necessity for a change in the law before the close of the present Parliament. The only question was whether it was expedient that a bill should be introduced during the present session, or wait until next; and in view of the. programme recently put forward by Mr. Parkes, the Government thought fit to oppose the motion, and adhere to the course of action they had marked out, though, there appears to be no reason why they could not have accepted it, without in any way compromising themselves, especially...

DEATH hos' jij&v'(renlb%)cr from the ranks eî the advañced^Radical parly (says the ' Ex- aminer') one of the "most /characteristic members in the person of Mr. vfeorge Odger.' As iii the'.case of many other men of ' un-, popular opinions, the real man to th^se'who had seen him,.'was'very different from tbe conceptioxv prevailing among those to whom he was only a name, and who knew him only in the vulgar caricatures of Mr. Shirley Brooks, as a wild revolutionary, who dropped his h's, and whose name rhymed with Codger and Dodger. That he was never a fanatic, his withdrawal from the " Interna- tional," the society' with which he was connected from its birth; and of which he was first president, when in his opinion that body went too far in its famous attack upon Jules Favre, sufliciently showed. Those who knew Mr. Odger personally--and his kindly and sympathetic nature, his' gentle m ann er, the charm of his conversation won him many friends-ian bear t...

A Good Idea. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 26 May 1877
A Good Idea. A RESIDENT of the town, who has for many years past taken a deep interest in the welfare of the native blacks, has now on foot a project similiar to the one at present existing in Mackay, viz. that of a depot, or plantation, to be formed some few miles from the town, whore the blacks could, under proper supervision, be taught to clear and plant vegetables, ¿¿c., say five acres of land. That this idea is a good one few we think will deny, and we trust that some of our influential townspeople will come forward and lend their assistance in a cause which has for its object the welfare of our fellow creatures -black though they be. The following conditions, under which it is thought the above scheme would be found to work advantageously, have been handed to us by a gentleman, who, from his long residence among the blacks in various parts of this colony, is well able to give an opinion on the subject. It is proposed : 1. That the police authorities and the inhabitants of the ...
