A Curious Ceremony. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 13 June 1885

A Curious Ceremony. On Saturday night last, a curious ceremony was enacted at the Newtown Salvation Bar racks. During the usual service, whioh consisted ef prayers, highly suggestive of hysteria, and tbe singing of hymns to popular air, the officer conducting the ecrvice announced that one of the female members of their congregation had brought her infant to be dedicated to the Army, un tins tne standard- uearer brought forth his flag adorned with the ' trade mark ' of the Army, and while the ' Captain ' took the infant in his arms, solemnly waved bis flag over' the',' Captain's ' head. Still holdinjg the baby, which seemed to have been only a few weeks old, he gravely dedicated her by her name Louisa ? — to the service of God and the Salvation Army, to ' be a woman in the House of Israel and a child in the sight of God.

OUR PUBLIC BUILDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 13 June 1885

OUR PUBLIC BUILDINGS. It. is , difficalt to saj whether the efiforts of the deputation which waited on Sir Alexander Stuart - yesterday morning will be attended with any beneficial results. Ministerial replifls are necessarily vague in their character and import ; this one seemed particularly so. Everything apparently is to depend upon the discrepancy in the amount of the proposed new plans as compared with the original one. If this is not more than £1100 or £1200, as at first. stated, it is possible that a satisfactory arrangement may be arrived at. On the other hand, if it should be ~ considerably more, which Sir Alexander himself believes will be the case, not a hope is held forth that Balmain will get what it so ardently and so reasonably desires Public Buildings worthy of and in keep ing with the admirable site which has been obtained for them, and which will be a credit and not a disgrace to this important and rapidly increasing municipality. Sir Alexander excited our risible ...

His Worship, in answer, said he hoped: the profession and municipal authorities would urge upon the Department the necessity for at once furnishing the building in a proper manner, nis nureaip gam a cuair ior Lirn had been brought over from the Temperance Hall. He want to the Temperance Hall, (the old ' place) and by a ticket on the door, found the business was to be transacted at the New Court.

TYPHOID. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 13 June 1885

TYPHOID. The death of Dr. Fortescue, who was, without doubt, an ornament to the medical profession, the sickness among the New South Wales Contingent, and the prevalent illness in Sydney and the suburbs urge upon us the imminent ques tion What is the origin of typhoid ? Prinno AlKorf. f.Vi« 'Prinr.n tfnnanrf. Vina band of the Queen, died of typhoid, and the greatest medical skill of Sir William Jenner, then simply : Dr.: William Jenner, could not save him. That typhoid fever arose from the opening ot some old drains, or sewers, at Windsor Castle) which had been olosed for ages. The stench, arose after a wet day, on which he had been reviewing troops, and when asked by Her Majesty to change his clothes he neglected to do so. . The fever struck into him, and he died. The Prince of Wales, some years afterwards, at Sandringham, was attacked with the same disease. It was found shortly afterwards that drains at Sandringham had been opened to make way for cer tain improvements on the Sandr...

VICTOR HUGO. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 13 June 1885

VICTOR HUGO. In Pturis, at the age of 84, this re markable man — poet, nevelist, poloti cian, patriot — departed out of this visible world to that which is not seen, aB yet, by us ; and in the last few days, has had a public funeral at the expense of the French Government. Much lias been written about him. We will add a few facts not yet published, but quite familiar to one, now on the staff of the ' Suburban Independent,' and who some years ago knew Victor Hugo in the Island of Guernsey, not far from the French coast. Louis Napoleon, who had been President of France only, had made himself, and others had made him Emperor, under the title Napoleon the Third. Victor Hugo's political principles did not suit Napoleon and his satlelites or fawning followers. Victor Hugo was DOWerful with bin nnn powerful as a writer, powerful as a poet. Napoleon feared him. Money rewards were offered to those who could seize him. Victor Hugo escaped from France to Jersey, in sight of the coast of France...

THE SHAKESPERIAN BALL. As a fitting climax to the late Shaesperian Fanoy Fair, it was decided by a number of the gentlemen who had prominently associated themselves with the undertaking that some recognition of the efforts of the ladies who had assisted should bo made.

Current items. The Balmain Half Holiday Associa tion seems still to be in a healthy state, especially as regards the tradespeople of Beattie-Sureet and Darling-Btreet East. There has lately been some addition to the ranks of grocers in the neighbour hood quoted, and it was feared that a hitch mieht be caused bv their un willingness to conform to the rales of the Association, but this fear has now been dispelled by Messrs. Woods Bros., Loudon and Jackson, the new arrivals, promising Mr. J. H. Hunt, the inde fatigable vice president of the Associa tion, that they will close on the Wed nesday afternoons. A meeting of the committee of the Society should now be called, and an effort made to resuscitate life into the movement as regards the West End of Balmain, where many of the grocers are not complying with the rules. Some three accidents of a non-serious but nevertheless severe character hap pened during the past week. On Mon day a shipwright named T. Dogherty, employed at Mort's Dock,...

Owl Club Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 13 June 1885

Owl Olut) Conoert. On Wednesday evening, the Petersham Owls had one of those pleasant 'hoots'' whioh have now, become quite an institution, and which in spite of .wet weather attracted a numerous audience to the Town Hall. Mr, Arthur Wood, who occupies thi position of president of .the Club, 'took the perch' shortly after 8 o'clock and for a couple of hours announoed piece after piece of music, the rendering of which afforded considerable satisfaction to tbe majority of the audience, who applauded the songsters very liberally. The concert opened with an overture from ' Semiramide ' by Messrs. Jacques and Bird (piano and violin) whioh was followed by a ballad by Mr. Wenban, who also sang later on in a very pleasant style ' The Village Black smith.' Miss Chapman was very successful in the song ' Waiting,' but hardly so much so in her rendering of ' When the Tide Csmes in.' Miss Pearce showed brilliant execution in a pianoforte solo, and two ' visiting Crows,' whose names we did not ca...

Sydenham Ward Election. Last Wednesday, at noon, Mr, .John Hen derson, of Brigbton-street, secretary' of the Sydney School of Arts, was declared duly elccted as alderman of the borough, in the room of Mr. E. J. Henry resigned. The Mayor (Mr. W. L.

He had also received a letter from Mr. BaTrell, apologising for non-attendance on ac oount of illness. His duty under the circum stances was to declare Mr. Henderson duly elected as alderman of the borough. Mr. Henderson said it was hardly necessary for him to make a speech, seeing how few were present, but he wished to heartily thank those who had signed the r...

A Deserved Punishment. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 13 June 1885

A Deserved Punishment. The practice of scattering nightsoil along public thoroughfares in outlying municipalities has of lategreatly increased. The police on night duty and the various inspectors of nui sances have occasionally detected and made examples of offenders, but as a rule the delin quents have proved too nimble for the pursuers. On Tuesday morning, at the Central Police Court, Mr. O'Malley Clarke, S.M,, somewhat astonished a couple of young men — Robert Kemp ond John Green — who had been caught redhanded committing the nuisanrc in a pub lic thotoughfare in Leichhardt. Nutisa ice In spector Arundel had ' planted ' himself in the bush during 13 nights on the watch without success, but eventually surprised the accused, who to save themselves a journey, bad par tially unfastened the tail-end of their carts and allowed refuse Jto escape upon the road.

Leichhardt. A Separate Eleotorato Desirable. Mr. Fred Walsh, ot Leichhardt, sends in the following excerpt from a soeech by the Hon. 3. P. Abbott, Minister for Mines, delivered at Wilcannia on the 27th ultimo. Mr. Abbott is reported to have said . — ' He might inform them that it was the intention of the Govern ment, if possible before the «ext general elec tion, to divide the Wentworth electorate in fach a manner that the pastoral interest would not clash with the mining interest. It wou'd never ao ior eiiner or tnese interests to swamp the other, particularly ia the matter of the election of their represbntatives. It would, therefore, be much better to give eaoh industry fair representation in Parliament. It was most unfair, and they could not reasonably expect that one man should have to canvass an electorate which embraced one-fourth of the area of the whole colony.' And Mr. Walsh argues that seeing the Government intend to recognise the claims of some of the existing electorate...
