WASTE OF BRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

WASTE OF BRAIN. ACCORDING to Dr. Beard, labour of brain causes greater waste of tissue th au labour of the muscles. According to the estimate of Professor Houghton, three hours of hard study produce more important changes than a whole day of muscular labour. Phosphor- ous, which is a prominent ingredient of the brain, is deposited in the urine after hard mental labour ; and recent experiments have shown that bych emical examination of these phosphates deposited, it is possible to deter- mine whether an individual has been chiefly using his brain or his muscles. That the brain is the organ of the intellect, is now as well established as any fact of science. The brain, being the noblest organ of the body, receives a greater proportional amount of blood than any other part, and is, of course, correspondingly affected by the quality and , quantity of the nutrition. It has been esti- mated that one fifth of the blood goes to the brain, though its average weight is not more than fifty oun...

TOLLS ON PUBLIC ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

TOLLS ON PUBLIC ROADS. IN the recent Parliamentary debate on the above subject, Mr. Nelson commenced by stating this Bill asked the Government to give up some £20,000 of revenue a year, but which cost an enormous amount in collection, one-third of which went to pri- vate . individuals alone. He considered these tolls a most barbarous and anti- quated mode of collecting revenue, and that when the Colonial Treasurer abolished , the tonnage dues at Newcastle and other ports, he should have included them also. We think sp too. The tax was one of the most unjust and inequitable of any that was ever imposed, because it entirely fell upon the producers and the people of the interior. The tolls were particularly oppressive to the settlers. It had been said that the people who used the roads ought to. pay for them ; but he denied that the people who did use the roads paid for them. Ct was not the carriers, but the consumers in the interior, who paid the tolls, in the increased prices they ha...

THE VOLUNTEER SHAM FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

THE VOLUNTEER SHAM FIGHT. " THERE was a sound of (not revelry) infan- try and artillery by night" at Darlinghurst Court House on December 6th, a rattling of small arms upon the gravelled square, quick sharp words of command were passed from mouth to mouth, the drums and fifes struck upa lively air, and the 237 " Rooskians " who were to take Sydney on the morrow filed out through the narrow gate and marched down Oxford-street, stiff and stern as old campaigners passing through a hostile city. The party consisted of men of all arms, and. were under the command of Major Ray- mond, who had for his officers Captain Be- verly (Volunteer Artillery), Captain Wells (Sydney Batalion Rifles), Captain Weigall (Grammar School Cadets), and Lieutenant Field (Suburban Rifles). The sky was dull and lowering, but not so the men, who trudged along the dusty road to Botany, enlivening the march with song and chorus. The ren- dezvous was reached about ll p.m., when preparations for camping were- immedia...

SIR ALFRED STEPHEN, C.B. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

SIR ALFRED STEPHEN, C.B. THIS gentleman, who has lately retired from the office of Chief Justice of New South Wales, was born at St. Kitt's, an island of the West Indies, in the early part of the pre- sent century, and is now in his seventy second year. His family shortly after removing to England, he had an opportunity of studying in the best schools there, which he turned to good account, his subsequent examinations reflecting the highest credit upon himself and his tutors ; and in the year 1823 he was called to the bar by the Society of Lincoln's Inn, on the 23rd November. He did not, however, remain long in England to practise his honourable profession, but almost immediately after his admission as a barrister emigrated to Tasmania, in which colony he remained from 1S25 till 1839, holding in turn 'the highest legal offices of the Crown, viz., Crown Solicitor, Solicitor-General, and even- tually that of Attorney-General. This latter appointment was conferred upon him during a sho...

As we have never seen him, we extract from the Australasian his history and perform- ances, which, having been copied into the Observer, of Adelaide, in which place he was bred is a guarantee as to its reliability.

THE MACGREGOR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

SIR ALFRED STEPHEN, C.B., LATE CHIEF JUSTICE. THE MACGREGOR. The pioneer steamer of the new line of packets to carry mails and passengers be- tween Sydney and San Francisco under the auspices of the California and Australian Steam Company arrived from Hong Kong at Melbourne on the morning of the 6th De- cember, and was at once berthed at the Sandridge Eailway Pier to discharge her cargo from Sourabaya, at which place she touched en route to this port. The first impression on seeing this vessel is one of surprise that she should be chosen for so important a service as the conveyance of mails and passengers between these colonies and that of California, nor is the impression removed on boarding her, as far as passenger accommodation is concerned, for it is nothing to be compared to that of the first-class ves- sels we have been accustomed to see of late visiting these waters. Aa regards speed, the performances from Hong Kong by the way of Sourabaya are decidedly in favor of the Macgre...

CHRISTMAS AT HOME AND ABROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

CHRISTMAS AT HOME AND ABROAD. EYER since there has been a Christmas everywhere and always its return has been kept up with festivity and rejoicing ; east and west, and north and south : in all kinds . of climates, burning hot and frigid cold, in all sorts of countries in both hemispheres : in all sorts of ways which man's ingenuity could devise, sharpened by his zest for plea- sure : Christmas is Christmas, was Christ- mas, will be Christmas : what more need be said ? My masters and my mistresses, there are . several things to be said about Christmas ; so many things, in fact, that the humble writer scarcely knows where or how to begin. Christmas at home and abroad, Christmas in all parts of the world! Why, here is a subject for a huodred volumes folio ! How can it be compressed into an article ? Who can make a panorama in a pill-box ? Who but dreads to become in his own person, the modern instance of the old Latin saw, and, labouring. to be brief, become obscure ? . Enough : let us...

Literature. CAMPED OUT ON CHRISTMAS EVE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

literature* CAMPED OUT ON CHRISTMAS EVE. BY GEORGE F. LOYAU. DID you ever hear my adventures out North, time I was going to the Calliope ? They oc- curred about Christmas time, and as this present occasion is the festive season, maybe my yarn will be applicable to it. So here goes. Most people have to " hump their swags" some time or other through life, and nobody need look down on another who is compelled to do it, because it's hard to say how soon it may come to his own turn. I'm not good at descriptions, otherwise I could give you an account of the sort of locality in which I found myself on Christmas eve just ten year ago. You stare ! thinking, no doubt a fel- low would hardly remember things which happened so far back ; but let me tell you, adventures such as mine were are not easily banished from memory. However, to the story. Night found me, after a long day's stage, camped among mountains, far remote from towns or habitations. This out-door sleeping was nothing new to me-man...

Selected Poetry. CHRISTMAS EVE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

CHRISTMAS EVE. SHE sat beside the dying fire, And pictured in its fading glow The purer thought, bhe high desire, The treasured hope of " long ago." The thoughts of brighter Christmas Days Stood out like pictures from a wall, And nearer yet the rugged ways By which her feet had left them all. She saw herself a happy child ' A careless girl-a maiden gay On whom a fond home-circle smiled, And smoothered with loving hands her way. And now she trod life's path alone Beneath a stranger's roof she dwelt ; Of those around her was not one To think or care what pain she felt. From halls below the merry stir Of dance and song came floating up ; Such festal scenes were not for her, Who drank of Life's more bitter cup. And as she sat, those brighter years Shone forth through Memory's golden haze ; She bent and sighed, with falling tears, " Come back, come back ye happy days !" O useless prayer ! O vain regret ! O Life, thou teacher hard and stern, Why are thy bitterest lessons set So oft for wo...
