Public Opinion.—On almost everything created by naturo or manufactured by the skill ol man thore is a adversity of opinion. Sometimes tho contrasts are so manifest and striking as to lead one to tbo conclusion that the mind of one of the two ob corvers mii3t be a little out of order. On the worlta of great poets, architects, historians, novelists, and octors these contrasts of opinion are most frequent; but no two opinions have as yot been oxpresscd on the excellence of workmanship and beauty of iinisli Mr. A.

Harold Netherly; OR, THE GAME OF LIFE. CHAPTER XIII (CONTINUED). [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 4 October 1884
Harold Netherly; on, THE GAME OF LIFE. CHAPTER xm (CONTINUED). Cbabby Lister, as it will be as well to still call him, was fearful of the possible treach ery, under the temptation of a considerable reward, of one person unavoidably cognisant of the coal-cart part of the affair; and ex tremely anxious therefore to reach the place where his father would leave him, and in another disguise, proceed alone. For that reason he rejoioed when the soowl ing sky broke into a fierce snowstorm, affording an excuse to the coal retailings of hurrying home for shelter. Forthwith plying the whip with great energy, Crabby quickly gained the high road of the open country, where, thanks to railways and the bitter weather, there could be nothing seen as far as the eye could reach before and behind, but the coal-oart, which, when about two miles beyond Ilfovd, drew up under the ' shelter of some trees, and Netherly pro ceeded to don his new disguise, that of a farmer of a humble, but respectable class, f...
Select Poetry. THE MASHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 4 October 1884
THE MASIIER. What is a masher? Why, lie's a dasher, Without brains, or cash, or E'on common sense; A end of twenty, With pockets empty, Back—weak and lengthy, And check immense. His topper's glossy, His chin is mossy, His ways are saucy. His collar's tight; His stop, though lazy, Is free and easy, His hair is greasy, His figure slight. To hear him talking, To sec him walking, Or, rather stalking, Along the street, Tou'd swear all people, The church and steeplo. Folks great and little, Lay at his feet Besides, this creaturo, This freak of nature, Thinks lie'B a teacher Of things polite; That by him the lassos Are bewitched in masses, E'en at first sight* Of this ilk another, The masher's half-brother, With more sail than rudder. Struts up and down ; Clerk in some office, In dark deeds no novice, The city toff is Well known " on town." He's known for bragging, The " De'il's tale dragging," His tongue is wagging From dawn to dark, About wealth and station, His one rioh relation, And mu...
The Land Bill. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 4 October 1884
The .Land Bill, The vexed question whether the Legislative Council had a right to make their amend ments in the Land Bill was, says the S. M. JlcraU, the subject of discussion in the Legis lative Assembly during the whole of Thurs day's sitting. When' the order of .the .day that the house go into committee to consider the Council's amendments was read, Sir Henry Purkes moved an amondment tlio effect of which would bo that the bill bo laid aside. After a long debato tho preliminary motion for the omission of tho first part of the resolution* with a view to the insertion of the amendment.,was negatived by 57 to 17. Mr. A._ G Taylor then took tho point of order that the bill was improperly before them, being beyond tho order of leave, be yond the scope of the title, and was not cov ered by the message from the Crown. After some discussion the Speaker ruled against the objections raised.
