THAT OTHER PACKING-CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 25 March 1887

THAT OT1IKK PACKING CASE. On tho. 16th of July 'last we wrote directing public attention to the packing case that was- mado to-do duty as a Temple of Justice, and since which time tenders havo been called for a new Court-house and accepted. .. It is now again our plain duty, in the interests of the town and district, to direct attention to another packing-case which' is made to do duty as a Public School, and of the two, considering that in tho latter case the young ideas of our future citizens and local legislators are taught to shoot, the packing-case we are now writing about is the more dis graceful to the department under whose charge it is, and of more serious import generally as affecting the moral, social, and educational welfare of the children packed up therein. The 'case' in question, which was built in 1872 — and was in the then state of .Coraki probably looked upon almost as a little college — is made of weatherboards, has the spacious length of 32 feot, with the magnifi...

Russia in Asia. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 25 March 1887

Russia In Asia. Tnu Daily News, in an nrticlo on tho fighting strength of Russia, after alluding to the construction of a lino of railway from Port Michaoloffaki, on the Caspian, to Morv, near tlio Afghan frontier, says: — 'Russia has, during the last six months, largely reinforced every military post along tho lino of this railway nnd its projected extensions. Between 40,000 and 50,000 men aro now distributed betweon Fort Michaeloffski and Samar kand, the greater numbor boing at the latter placo and at Merv. Fifty thousand more aro at Tiflis, whenco they can bo moved to Baku in 10 hours, and to Fort Michaeloffski in little more than 24 ; and in the othor garrisons of the Caucasus thero are yet another 50,000 men of the active army. There is, indeed, no room for doubt that, if sho so willed, Russia oould, without any difficulty, concentrate 100,000 mon at any point along the now railway within a week, or, at most, 10 days from now. The line runs very close to the Afghan frontier, an...

Sold Again. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 25 March 1887

Sold Again. A zealous detective, suspecting that an itenerant vendor of laces, braces, &c., was hawking his goods without a license, purchased a pair of suspenders from tho man for a shilling, and then asked him to show his license. To the detective's great surprise the necessary dooument was produced, and the braces being no longer any use, he offered to re sell them for 9d. The ready-witted dealer made the purchase in the presence of two or three witnesses who had gathered around and then trotted off to the nearest police court, and asked for a summons against the officer, for hawking without a license. That detective now wanders about like a croupy fowl.

Irish Wit. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 25 March 1887

Irish Wit. An Irishman took a contract to dig a public .well. When he had dug about twenty-five feet down, ho came one morning and found it caved in — filled nearly to the top. Pat looked cautiously arouna ana saw tnat no person was near, then took off his hat and coat and hung them over the windlass, crawled into some bushes and awaited events. In a short time the citizens discovered that the well had caved in, and seeiug Pats hat and coat on the windlass, they sup posed he was at the bottom of the well. Only a few hours of brisk digging cleared the well. Just as tho eager citizens had reached the bottom, and were wondering where the body was, Pat came walking out of the bushes, and good naturedly thanked them for relieving him of a sorry job. Some of tho tired diggers were disgusted, but the joke was too good to allow anything more than a heurty_ laugh, which soon followed.

A Bishop In Hot Water. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 25 March 1887

A Bishop in S9ot Water. Dr. Mooriiouse, the militant Bishop of Manchester, continues to got into hot water with the strait-laced members of his diocese. He has lately deolared that ho was not an old-fashioned Puritan, and therefore did not consider that any desecration of the Lord's Day would be involved in opening free libraries to the public on Sundays, so as to enable the poor to share in the intellectual advan tages possessed by the rich. Manchester is the headquarters of the great teetotal association, the United Kingdom Alliance, and the breadth of view of Dr. Mooriiouse upon the subject of moderate drinking is a cause of great offence to those who would make all , people sober by Act of Parliamont. Some of these zealous individuals have gono so far as ' to denounce from the public platform what they call the Bishop's blaoksliding in the matter of total abstinence. The bulk of his diocese view with amusement the Bishop's conflicts with the, frantic teetotallers. At a meeting t...

A New Implement of Destruction. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 25 March 1887

A Sew Implement of Destruc* tlon. . Intelligence: haB reached tho Defence | Department of Victoria (says the Age), of a now gun invented by Lieutenant Zolinski of tho United States, which is evidently destined to prove a very formidable and destructive weapon of warfare. ; For some years past the inventor has been experimenting for tho purpose of manufacturing a gun- that would ' 6re shell containing blasting gelatine, the resistance power of whioh material is well understood. Tho result is, : that ho has produced a weapon 8 inches in diameter which will fire shells | containing 501b of blasting gelatine a distance of 3500 yards (two miles) when discharged at an elevation of 17 degrees. The United States Government appear j to think vory highly of tho invention, | and have ordered vessels to be built possessing a speed of 19 knots that will carry two 1271b Zolinski guns. The weapons are discharged by tho operation of compressed air, and the point of the shell is kept to the front by...

Worth Knowing. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 25 March 1887

Worth, Knowing. . I An intelligent and trustworthy corres pondent, says tho Boston Transcript has sent us the following : — ' Tho smoke of woollen rags is a cure for dangerous wounds. A lady of my acquaintance ran a macliino noedlo through hor fingor. Sho could could not bo roleased till tho machine was takon to pioccs. Tho noedlo. had broken into her fingor in three pieces, one of which was bent almost doublo. Aftor repeated trials tho piecos, wore extracted by pincers, but they wore vory strongly ombeddod. The pain roached to tho shouldor, and thero was evory clangor of lockjaw. The woollen rags wero put over the coals, and sho hold her finger over tho smoko, and in a very short timo all tho pain was gone and nover returned, though it was some little time beforo the finger healed.

The French War Minister. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 1 April 1887

The Preneh War Minister. In connection with the snbjcct of war, and the probability that France will some day bo drawn or tompted into a new and terrible fight, tho personality of General Boulanger, who seems to be predestined to play a leading part in that coming struggle, becomes interesting. The present War Minister is the son of a lawyer of xiennes, and his boyhood was passed in very modest circumstances. His father, having sold his office, settled at. Nantes, and he became an inspector of an insurance company there. As is pro verbially said in Brittany, the boy had more bread at his moals than butter. His mother wa3 an Englishwoman, very beautiful ; the son resembles her, aud is a remarkably handsome man. Educated at St. Cyr. the young pupil of the great , military school on the days when the youths were allowed to go out and amuse themselves, used to content him, for his lunch, with ono of the little applo turn overs, sold at the corners of tho streets, thus saving money enoug...

Kilucatlon and Observation. If tho Hon. Jamoa Inglis means to lceop up tlio pace he has commenced his offioinl careor at, lie will noed a good constitution to save him from untimely collapse. Ho has done more outside work during the last fow wooks than most of hia protlo-i ceasors did in as many years in office. It is always refreshing to find a man of zeal filling ministerial offices, over pie nni*pri in rln liifl lnvnl tin mnf.f.ttr whether at his desk, or on a platform, with his pen, or knife and fork. Mr. Inglia means not only to look after popular educators, but to cducato him self if ho has time. He has promised the Yernon boys a lecture on wild beasts and tho modes adopted in ancient and modern times for destroying them at Ephesus and Cabul. As a lecturer, Mr. Inglis has not vory many equals, and ho cau put his matter together in a pleas antly discursive way which should make a welcome visitor in our Public Schools on his toura, whether social or official.

THE BULLI COLLIERY DISASTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 1 April 1887

TUfi BftJLlil C01.1.IERY DISASTER. We might, perhaps, under severe stress of circumstances call this woful catas trophe by some other name, but refrain from doing so, at all events at present. The instantaneous destruction of nearly a hundred lives and the further widow hood of nearly sixty wives, together with over two hundred children left fatherless, besides other beieavements, are matters that not only call for instant and searching inquiry on the part of the (rnvsrnmsn^ lint a HnlioKintinl and npan. tical expression of sympathy at the hands ' of the public generally. With regard to the first part, of the question, there can, we think, be little doubt but that there was gross careless ness — to phrase the term as mildly as possible — in the examination made of the state of the mine previous to these unfortunate men and boys proceeding therein to work; and it is with satisfac tion we note that Mr. Tonkin, member for East Macquarie, has signified his intention , of moving, at as e...
