IMPECUNIOSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

1MPECUNI0SITY. From kings to cobblers there never has been any grade of society enjoying anything like immunity from ' con sumption of the purse.' 'I can get no remedy against it,' complains Falstaff. ' Borrowing only lingers and lingers it out, but the disease is incur able.' And so it has been at all times and with all people. Napoleon found it so in bis island of Elba, where he seemed at one time in a fair way of finding scope for his restless energy. ' I am now politically dead to Europe,' he said ; ' let me do what I can for ; Elba,' And he set about exploring every nook and corner, planning archi tectural and engineering improvements in his puny world which might possibly have found employment for his busy brain and untiring energy for many a IT' year. But ' this consumption of the || ' puree' proceeded at a rate corresponding I | with his vigour, and his pension failed II |- him. It would have taken a long purse |j | indeed to have carried out the designs U f he planned, and ...

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. THE LAND OFFICE ENQUIRY [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. The Land Office Enquiry Judging from the little that has come to light, the public would have had much of the mysticism that envelopes the working of the Land Department cleared away had not Mr. Hoskins brought to an abrupt termination the Royal Commission that was appointed to inquire into its abuses. That he had the power to do so is matter for question ; it certainly should not have been exercised when the wretched condi tions of the department became ap parent, even though the revelations that were made in course of the inquiry reflected discredit on previous Ministers charged with its management. This burking process is open to the suspicion that the esprit dc corps which pervades all Governments, is still the prevailing motive, even in a reforming Adminstra tion. Mr. Hoskins had better have left the Commission to work out its purpose, and if its report failed to be borne out by the evidence taken it need not have been adopted. It must be acknowledged tbat ...

THE ART OF QUARRELLING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

THE ART OF QUARRELLING. Quarrelling, coram populo, having become one of our recognised fashion able amusements, like billiards or lawn tennis, some rules for its conduct, secundum artem, may not be without their utility. The following general instructions are deduced from a careful consideration of the many conspicuous games with which the public has lately been entertained. In the first case, as a sort of pre liminary training for this pastime, it is essential to divest yourself of all sense of good feeling, fairness, and self-respect ; and get rid of all such fatal weaknesses as courtesy and openness to conviction. The art of disputing with dignity and decorum, if it ever existed, is a lost one. Secondly, you must set up an opinion. We say set up advisedly, because the establishment of an opinion, like the purchase of a carriage, is an act of pure volition, and has no necessary relation to the intellect or conscience. The more arbitrary and irrational this opinion, the better for ...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

South Australia. 176,000 passengers were carried on the Adelaide and suburban tramway during the month of March. Tlie steamship John Elder arrived from Melbourne on Tuesday. She will not sail till noon on Thursday for Lon don, owing to ail accident to her machinery. The vessel which grounded last week on Shoalwater Point proves to be the Wodonga, bound from Newcastle to Port Pirie with coals. Evidence given at the inquest on the bodies of the two children who were killed on the Brighton railway on Mon day, showed that the train in which the children rode was filled with people, and that the boy and girl were standing on the steps, anxious to get off at Seaside Hotel. The train not stopping, they jumped off. A verdict was given ac cordingly. The jury also added that the carriage waa overcrowded, and that the practice of riding on the carriage stops should at once be put a stop to. Two jurymen out of fifteen dissented from the verdict.

MR. GLADSTONE ON HIMSELF. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

MR GLADSTONE ON HIMSELF. In response to an invitation from us, Mr. Gladstone has answered some ques tions which it was thought would throw light upon obscure portions of his bio graphy. Our first inquiry was — ' By what mental changes, or external causes, did he consciously pass from the Con servative to the Liberal side ?' Prob ably the question was too well defined to receive an answer that could be given ' in precise terms. Mr. Gladstone has : referred us to his speech at the opening ' of the Pahuerston Club, at Oxford, in ' December 1878, from which we take the following : — ' I trace, in the educa tion of the Oxford of my own time one great defect Perhaps it was my own fault ; but I must admit that I did not learn when at Oxford that which I have ? learned since — namely, to seta due value ; on the imperishable and inestimable i principles of human liberty. The tern- ' per which I think too much prevailed ; in academic circles was that liberty was j regarded with jealousy, and ...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

Victoria. The outgoing mail will take a formal invitation to H.R.H. the Prince of Wales to open the Exhibition. There was a large gathering of Sunda}' school children on Tuesday in the Town Hall, the building being crowded. The Bishop of Melbourne preached a seamon. Great complaints are made at the Mel bourne Hospital at the non-attendance of the honorary staff, and it was shown that one doctor had not attended his patients for two months. On Monday he sent in his resignation. Tuesday was observed as a holiday in the Government offices. The weather has cleared, and is now beautifully fine. A man named Paul Bones lias died in the Benevolent Asylum, Sandhurst, aged 99. He was a sailor, and arrived in Sydney per the Bounty, with Go vernor Macquarie. A benefit is to be given to L'Estrange to recoup him for his loss by the collapse of his balloon.

A GOOD WORD FOR THE OLD YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

A GOOD WORD FOR THE OLD YEAR. Why, 1878 has been a year of blessing ! It cured us of the Jingo madness. It brought down i-otten concerns by the dozen — chiefly because they were rotten. It set many folks a-thinking who hither to had been thoughtless. True, it made the innocent to suffer with the guilty ; but such is an unavoidable law of this universe. Perhaps now we shall dis cover who these guilty ones are. We have heard it remarked that you cannot eat your cake and have it. It is not many years since we were all rolling in money. People left olf peddling nuts and carrying mortar, and became full blown ironmasters and mineowners. The less successful man, who remained a hewer of wood and drawer of water, nevertheless drank champagne when he was thirsty, and fed his dogs on sirloin steaks and chops out of the middle of the leg. Fellows who one day could hardly afford to buy a sixpenny pen knife another day bought an estate. Men demanded to be maintained in luxury for about as much w...

MR. GLADSTONE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

MR. GLADSTONE. It is a marvellous head. The forehead runs back with a sharp slant, but the lack of height is made up by striking breadth. Over the eyes the brows jut heavily. The nose is large, but delicate of outline, and the curve of the nostrils is line. Two deep furrows cut down ward towards the corners or tlie mouru, and these same furrows, when the mouth is writhed, give an effect half grotesque, half terrible. The jaw is massive and square, and almost cruel. | And the eyes — I never yet saw such eyes in a human being. The whole J character of the man looks out of them. j They are intensely dark and small, and glittering. They never gaze steadily for a moment, but shift and flash with a changeful ness that is weird, and the wcirduess is deepened by the bizarre fashion iu which the eyebrows slope upward. The whole head is poised on a thick muscular throat, and the neck is planted on heavy shoulders which look powerful enough. It is the pre- I sontment of a devotee. Of strong wi...

QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

Queensland. At llockhamptou, on Monday, a spark from the locomotive set fire to the parasol and dresses of two lady pas sengers. The flames were subdued before any serious mischief occurred. At a Cabinet meeting held on Wed nesday the tender of the Queensland National Bank, for the transaction of Government business, was accepted. It is stated that it will effect a considerable saving compared with the Union tender. Grand specimens were found in No. 2 North Lady Mary, Gympie, on Tuesday. One block of quartz is estimated to contain 700 ounces. The Rockhanipton Traffic Manager denies the statement ? that the accident on Monday was caused by sparks from a locomotive, as an effective spark arrester is always used. He suggests that a lighted match or cigar caused the ignition of the parnsol.

BEN JONSON. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

BEN JONSON. Next to Shakspere in point of time among the greater Elizabethan drama tists, and next to him, perhaps, also in genius, stands Jonson, always called by himself and his contemporaries, as well as by posterity, by the abbreviated title, Ben Jonson. He was born in London in 1573. His family had a generation earlier been in prosperous circumstances. but he was born to great poverty. He was the posthumous son of a clergyman; but his mother married for her second husband a bricklayer, and Jonson in early youth was obliged to follow the employment of his stepfather. He afterwards served for some time as a soldier in the Low Countries. But while still young, like many another young man of his day whoso tastes and aspirations were above his fortune, he turned actor. From acting he advanced, as others did, to dramatic writing ; and down to the time of his death, in 1C37, his dilligence as a playwriter was un ceasing. Singularly unfavourable as the circumstances of his early life w...

SNOW BOUND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 April 1879

SNOW BOUND. The irrevocable is the tomb of hope. At its presence muscles relax, the arms fall limp, the will dies away, and we surrender. Nothing tests the fine temper of a mail's mind like the fact of being snowbound. It is unalterable destiny balking our fond desires and our foolish wishes. This winter we are likely to be sorely tried. We had planned, it may be, a visit to a sick ftieiid ; we had meditated trying a new horse at a near and favourite meet ; we expected our lover or our wife after a long and anxious journey ; we expected nothing at all, and were oiify gfad of a grievance. It is enough that, on waking, we boliold a vast sheet of white innocent snow stretehed over everything — such a soft, gentle, bridal-looking veil ; and yet how cold, how icy, how impossible to oppose or come to terms with ! Presently we hear a dull thump at the door, and a husky voice announces that the pump is frozen, and there is no water to be procured. We huddle on our clothes with lips quiverin...
