"THE CABBAGE GARDEN." Slit .John' Robertson's Explanation op the Term. In the Legislative Assembly: of New South Wales oil Wednesday, 18th March, while the subject under discussion was the sending i:of our contingent to the Soudan, Sir John Robertson said : ..." I do not care what federation we may have, if the old country be in it; Have as much federation as you like, but none without the old country." Mr. O'Mara : " What about the cabbage garden ?" Sir John Robertson: The honorable member knows that that is a sore point with the Victorians. As that remark of mine lias been referred to many times I will say this, tliat it never fell from my , mouth iu anything in the shape of a. sneer.

THE SEIGE OF SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 1 April 1885

THE SEIGE OF SIDNEY. ScAncEfjY hfP?6 the clouds of war lowered: •aver the British Empire, than we find our-' •selves engaged in a terrible struggle in de .feuce of our hearths and homes. With the craftiness characteristic of the Moscovite, the .Russian Government have long been secretly preparing a long expedition in the* harbors of Nikolaeosk,;in the Gulf of Tartary, north of Japan, and had so well timed its arrival on the Australian coast so as to have it near Sydney within 28 hours after the. •declaration of war. They appear to have lhad spies in our midst for some time past, who have evidently reported the fact that \ve had only a few volunteers to defend our shores, and we would, therefore, prove an. •easy prey. .As was often predicted, we were itaken quite unawares, by this hostile expe dition, our first intimation of its arrival be >ing the announcement of the lighthouse keeper at Barranjoeythat a number of large iheavy-armed steamers had entered Broken Bay.

THE CHAMPIONSHIP SCULLING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 1 April 1885

THE CHAMPIONSHIP SCULLING MATCH, The long-pending sculling match for £1000 and the championship of the world between William Beach and Edward Hanlan was rowed over the championr ship course on the Parramatta River on Saturday afternoon, and resulted in an easy victory for Beach, the .time taken being 21 minutes 51$ seconds. Before a quarter of a mile had been covered Beach had ok* tablislicd himself well in front and he was never once caught or even pressed. In fact from Rocky Point, a short distance below the starting point;, he was never called upon to row, and had only to go over the course at a comortable pace in order to clainji the championship and the stakes. The thus taken for the race when he beat Hanlan in August varied £rom 20 minutes 28 seconds to 21 minutes 29 seconds ; but on neither occasion was the Dapto representative pressed to the finish, &nd, as we say elsewhere, no one except himself and his trainer, Charles Messenger, knows what he could do if re quired...

She three Bondi rioters—Jones, Kelly and Healy —were each sentenced to eight years penal servi tude. The number of passengers who travelled by rail in 1888 was 3,090,000,000, or more than two jour neys for every person on the earth. , In Sydney and sarburbs during last month the births numbered 944 and the deaths 527, being re spectively 59 and 119 moire than the numbers regis tered during February, 1884. Sydney is on the tiptQe of expectation with regard to the declaration of war with Russia. That, and Beach's victory, are the principal themes of conver sation. There is talk about the introduction of a Militia Bill, and it is probable that if the advanced relations between England and Russia continue, Parliament will be summoned and such a measure submitted to it. Nothing succeeds like success.
