KING LILLIPUT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

KING LILLIPUT. MoitE than thirty years ago, De Jong, the wise and witty ' Hermit of the Cliaussee d'Antin,' wrote against the growing custom of reversing the order of things, and allowing children to rule instead of making them obey. His words had little effect ; words of wisdom seldom have, aud, in the present day, we find children occupying a much more prominent position m the social circle than is either good for them, or agree able for them. The outer world, of course-, and, inevitably, follows suit, and e verything is done for the children. Toys, so costly that the youthful pos sessors hardly dai'e to play with them, and so elaborate in construction that nothing is left for the child's imagina tion, are manufactured for them ; the market, especially at the present time, is flooded with books and other publica tions for fheir special delectation ; the theatres, for nearly three months out of the twelve, are given up to entertain ments designed foi their amusement. In picture gal...

TYPOGRAPHICAL ERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

TYPOGRAPHICAL ERRORS. 1 While printing continues typographical fl errors mnst, of necessity occur. Several Bj volumes, made up entirely of amusing 9 mistakes of printers, have from time B to time appeared, and we are iuformed I that a bookmaker is engaged upon the .1 preparation of a fresh collection of ? blunders of types. Let us hone that ? the forthcoming book, when it does .Bj appear, will possess at least the minor - fl merit of originality. Entirely too many flj specimens of printers' errors have done ? duty over and over again until they I have been worn threadbare; have H grown stale, flat, unprofitable. The I main object of gathering, in permanent ? form, errors in type setting is to create I a laugh.

The dire fate awaiting a volume fl consisting entirely, or in part, of ancient fl jokes may be imagined. I What there should be so particularly fl divertin...

GREAT SCULLING MATCH. LOYCOCK v. RUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

GREAT SCULLING MATCH. Lavcock v. Rush. The great event that had been looked forward to for so long — the match be tween Laycock and Rush, for £100 a side — came off on Saturday last, on thechampioiicour.se, Parr.-unatta River, from Charity Point to the Three Brothers. There was a very large con course of spectators, not only on the steamers — some 20 in number — that were chartered especially to convey those desirous of witnessing the race, but also on all the principal points along the river banks, especially at Putney, Gladesville, and near the Sydney Rowing Club Branch. The course was admirably kept, thanks to the regulations made by the Marine Board and the exertions of the water police. There was no overcrowding, no fouling, and nothing to prevent the men from doing their best. The result was as fine a struggle as has ever been witnessed upon the course. Laycock was the first to show. He came down with his boat to the wharf at Rhodes's Point, accompanied by several of his backe...

STARTLING BALLOON ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

.STARTLING BALLOON ACCIDENT. Tnii novel feature — and what proved to be a most sensational item in the pro gramme of E.istar Monday's amuse ments — was a balloon ascent from the Agricultural Society's grounds, on the St. Kilda road. Mr. L' Estrange, the 'Australian Blomlin ' and aeronaut, bad announced that he would made, an ascent in his balloon, the ' Aurora,' which, we are informed, was constructed in Paris, ami was used for the purpose of conveying despatches beyond the Prussian lines during the Franco Prussian war. Mr. L' Estrange'* an nouncement attracted rt considerable amount of attention, and when the work of preparing the balloon for its aerial trip was commenced at 9 o'clock, there was a numerous assemblage of spectators on the. ground. The weather was then very unpromising for the undertaking, but the aeronaut decided to inflate the balloon, and to postpone the ttip in the event of the day not clearing up. The Metropolitan Gas Company had laid down a special six inch mai...

THE VICTORIAN EMBASSY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

The Victorian Embassy. The telegram of the 8th instant from London, stating that Mr. Berry was satisfied with the impression he had made there, but had abandoned his idea of obtaining au Enabling Act, should be read in connection with the remarks of Sir Bryan O'Loghlen and Major Smith at a public dinner on the 10th instant. Sir Bryan was confident that every tiling that could be done by his chief would be done in England to bring about a satisfactory and perma nent settlement of the reform question ; but the question was to be a burning one in the colony during the next six or eight nionts, and the only result expected by him from Mr. Berry's action in England appears to be that an expression of opinion in England must have a powerful influence upon ' a certain section' ot the colonial com munity. Major Smith put the case livpotlietically. ' Supposing the Eng lish Government said to the Com missioners, 'Go back, and try the Upper House once more.'' Then there would be a battle in wh...

OUR GAOLS AND THE INCREASE OF CRIME. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

OUR GAOLS AND THE INCREASE OF CRIME. Lv our issue of Friday there appeared a telegram from our Forbes corre spondent respecting the condition of the police goal of that town. At the time of his comunication there were six prisoners confined iu one cell of 8 feet by 10 feet dimensions, six iu another of the same size, and four iu a third cell of 8 feet, by G feet 8 inches. One of the six prisoners in the first cell is described as a dangerous lunatic, at whose mercy the lives of the other five would be if they could ever go to sleep in such circumstances. After these cells have been closed for twele hours, the stench is described as most horrible. We can easily believe it. Here are eighteen human beings, of whom probably one third have never yet been put upon their trial, and some of whom will to a certainty be declared innocent, shut up night after night in a space which gives each of them just six feet by two feet of superficial area, less than the area assigned for a paupers's gra...

ACTING JUDGES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

Acting Judges. We think there can be but little difference of^opinion as to the necessity for the appointment of a fifth Judge. For a considerable time past it has been found necessary to appoint Acting Judges to preside at some of the Cii-cnit Courts. The Acting- Judges appointed have hitherto been gentlemen competent for the position, and have given satis faction ; but we thiuk the practice is an undesirable one. In connection with the civil business, especially, it must possess considerable disadvantages. To secure competent gentlemen for the position, the leadei-s of the Bar must be looked to, and these leaders, not a great many in number, are more than likely to have been consulted on most civil cases of any magnitude coming before the Courts. Of course a barrister who had been consulted, and given an opinion concerning a case, could not preside at its hearing. It follows, as a matter of course, therefore, that while leading barristers continue to be ap pointed Acting-Judges th...

SCULLING CHAMPIONSHIP OF ENGLAND. HIGGINS V. ELLIOTT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

SCULLING CHAMPIONSHIP OF ENGLAND. Higgins v. Elliott. This great event took place on. the Tyne on the 17th February. The report below is abridged from Bell's Life in London, of the 22nd of that month. The stakes were £200 aside, and the contest was for the Champion ship of England. Elliott was born on the 28th of November, 1849, be stands 5 fcet 'ih inches, and his weight on Monday last as he stripped in his boat was 1 1st. 31b., which is 1011). less than when he rowed Higgins for the Championship in June last. Higgins stands 5 feet 7 inches, and he was born on the 2nd May, 1844, His weight, when ready for the race, was nearly list, about the same as when lie rowed Elliott on tlie occasion named. (John Higgin's antecedents are too well known to be particularise J.) At the outset Elliott got off quickest, and soon began to show with a lead of fully a length, rowing at 40 strokes to the minute, but iu nothing like such good form as Higgins, burying his left hand scull very much. At th...

PARLIAMENTARY PRIVILEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

Parliamentary Privilege. One great danger against which wise foresight ought as far as possible to guard is that the use of Parliamentary privilege is apt to *ake the odious form of retrospective (or as it is commonly called, ex post facto) legislation. First, the House decides that an offence has been committed against itself, and then inflicts a punishment — acting as prose cutor, jury, and judge. When a Dill is introduced into parliament declaring that an act already committed is a crime, and attaching a penalty to it, though such a measure has to pass the ordeal of those forms which experience has devised to ensure the full discussion in both Houses of every objection which can be made against its principle and its details, it is, nevertheless, justly looked upon with a certain amount of suspicion and dislike by every rightly constituted mind — even by those who allow that it ought to pass as the less of two evils. The privilege of Parliament might be used by a single decision o...

THE CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

The Championship or tub World. The form which William Elliott dis played in Monday's race has once more drawn attention to the fact that the. highest aquatic title, the Champion ship of the World, still remains with Edward Trickett, of Sydney, Australia, and we should be glad to hear that a movement had been started to send the present champion of England to the antipodes to endeavour to bring back the proud distinction of which this country was deprived when Joseph H. Sadler suffered defeat. In au informal sort of way the subject has during tho week been undei the consideration of Elliott's backers, and we believe that the Blytk sculler will forego all other engagements in order to have an oppor tunity of measuring blades with Tric kett. James Taylor, too, has expressed his willinguess to accompany him on his long voyage as professional trainer, but the heavy expenses which will have to be incurred — somewhere about £300, independent of the stake, it is estimated would cover the ve...

THE FOXHUNTERS' MEET. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

THE FOXHUNTERS' MEET. When the hunt first meets at 1 1 o'clock in the morning on some village green, or at a farmer's gate, or possibly on some gentleman's lawn — which is not the kind of meet which I most specially recommend, unless it be for the pur poses of sweet discourse with pretty ladies — possibly at some cross road at a convenient distance from the covert which is to be first drawn, the steady and the unsteady, the fast and the slow, are mixed promiscuously together. Old Farmer Rudge, who seldom gets out of a trot, congratulates young Squire Breakaway on the condition of his young mare, Virago, and Mr. Heels, the veterinary surgeon, who sees every turn of the hounds from first to last, listens with an obsequious smile while Mr. Ponderwell, the old rector from the next parish, describes to him every detail of the last day's run. Heels had ridden every yard of it, while Mr. Ponderwell was trotting round upon the road — but there are two ways of viewing a hunt, as Mr. Heels an...

THE NEW "CASTLE DISCORD." [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

The New 'Castle Discord.' Somewhere about three years ago, the memorial-stone of the new Lauds office was laid with much ceremonial and rejoicing. From that day to this the rapid growth of the noble structure has been to thousands of passers-by a source of mingled surprise and pleasure. In future days the skill and taste of the architect will be the subject of re mark. At present an equal share of praise is bestowed upon the energy, resource, and organizing ability of the contractor. Does any one who looks up at the pile reflect that, unless the subject of the proposed inquiries be considered seriously and dealt with eliectively, the building mav, after all, be a splendid monument of weakness and folly — symmetry without, chaos within. We have a vast territory in New South Wales, and heavy are the responsibilities that rest upon the Legislature and the Government in connection with the disposal of it. But it does not follow, because the public estate is so extensive, that there must...
