IN DEBT, IN DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

IN DEBT, IN DANGER. St. Paul, who was a model preacher, did not think it unbecoming to remind the Romans, in his Epistle that they should ' render to all their dues,' and should 'owe 110 man anything.' There is indeed something contrary to the everlasting principles ot equity 111 with holding payment where payment can be made. It is not doing to others as we would be done by, and therefore he who is in debt is in danger of violating the moral law. Debt multiplies debts, for if the creditor be not paid himself he cannot pay his creditors, and thus the system of debt is perpetuated. If those, for example, who furnished their houses do not pay for the goods on delivery or very shortly afterwards, the cabinetmaker, carpet manufacturer,! pianoforte-maker, the picture-dealer, and the bookseller who filled the library shelves, the ironmonger who supplied the stoves, bath, and iron-work, must j inevitably be hindered in their business, unable to make prompt payments, doomed to bear the anno...

THE DECLINE OF ENGLISH TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

The Decline of English Trade. Although the great Parliament of | the nation has not bestowed any ex haustive investigation upon the circum stances and causes of the decline in English prosperity, many of those lesser assemblies in which Englishmen meet together to discuss matters of public interest have been anxiously considering the present aspect of affairs, and, in the opinion of many, the time has come when a parliamentary com mittee ought to be appointed to inquire into the state of commerce and manu factures. Within the memory of the present generation certainly no national crisis has been so grave as that which the old country is passing through now. The issue is trembling in the balance whether the manufacturing supremacy of Great Britain is to be maintained and her commerce to advance once more by ' leaps and bounds,' or the palm is to be yielded to other nations eager to seize upon the trade of the greatest trading power ever known in the history of the world. No inquiry i...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

Is palming off upon the public an inefficacious article, the injury is not so much in the fact of its being utterly valueless, as in the mistrust it produces, and the consequent lack of public confidence that inevitably ensues. People upon whom impositions have been practiced grow wary aud watchful, and this suspicion soon becomes so in tensified, that they even look with dis favour upon what is genuine. Hence the necessity of rejecting everything that trenches upon Udolpho Wolfe's Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps, the one, unapproachable preparation. — Adv. Dew ok the Alps. — We invite (he attention of our invalid readers and their friends to the important fact that this renowned and most delicious Euro pean appetizer and invigorant is now obtainable here.

THE GREAT SOUTHERN TIME TABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

The Great Southern' Time Table. Beyond postal arrangements there are few matters which concern the people in the country districts more than railway management, and therefore we may be excused if we take exception to the last new time table, aud a few other mat ters. In this time table, which came into operation on 21st instant, it is announced that the day train from Sydney through to Wagga staits at 9.45 a.m., and does not arrive at its terminus until 5.30 the next morning. This train, it will be remembered, vised to leach Wagga at 12 o'clock at night, and was considered to be a great con venience by those who took train at Mumunburrah, as the mail coach which travels through from Greufell to Young was available either for it or the mail train to Sydney. Now, we are not unreasonable enough to suppose for one moment that a train can be arranged on purpose to suit the convenience of the people of the Young district, but we would very much like to be enlightened as to the reason wjiy...

BISMARCK'S DECLINING PRESTIGE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

BISMARCK'S DECLINING PRESTIGE. The Chancellor's prestige is decidedly on tlie wane. In order to escape from one embarrassment he plunges into another and a worse one, and the clouds are gathering thickly around him. I liave explained in a former letter what were his motives for bfiffin ning the ecclesiastical struggle. Per ceiving that he had underrated his adversary, he tried a diversion by a project of war, but was baffled by his master. Then came the scheme of buying up the railways, which has come to nothing ; and when the revenue he gun to fail the tobacco monopoly rose 011 the horizon. It is known that his own commission of inquiry declared against it. Tlie Government press then said that this was of no conse quence, since the decision rested with the Federal Council alone. But now, wonder of wonders, the Prussian Ministers, erstwhile obedient clerks of the Chancellor, have plucked up suffi cient courage to reject the monopoly in their turn ; and, consequently, it has been def...

THE LATE SCULLING MATCH. The following is the letter written by Hush to tlie Sydney Echo : — ' As the public are not satisfied with the decision in the late race between invself and Mr. Laycock, and tlie majority seem to think that I am virtually winner of the race, though not acknowledged so by the referee, I avail myself of this opportunity, through the columns of your valuable paper, prior to my departure fvom Sydney this evening, to state my own views as to the said decision, for the information of my friends and the public generally. With regard to the finish of tlie race between myself aud Mr. Laycock, I can affirm, witnont tlie least doubt, that I passed the flagboat at the finish of the course first, with Mr. Laycock astern of me, nnd I remarked at the time that that the man stationed at the flagboat at the Brothers did not lower his Hog as I passed hi m ; but when, after pass ing liim, I ceased rowing and Mr. Lay cock shot [last me, then, and not till then, did the man in t...

GOULBURN ANNUAL RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

GOULBURN ANNUAL RACES. A fair degree of success attended these races, which commenced 011 Monday last, at Goulburn. The weather was propitious, the attendance generally speaking was good, and the running interesting. For the first day there were five events competed for, the first being the Hurdle Race, which was won from Glencairn by Mr. Roberts' Peter Simple. The weight carried by the winner was list 121b. Next came the Shorts Handicap for which there were six starters, but only Lightning, Falcon, Heirloom, and Bedouin gave a good report of themselves, the first-named horse winning the race as he pleased. The Hel ter Skelter was won by Clarinet, with Don Jnau second. Tlie Autumn Stakes, which proved the prime event of the meeting, excited great interest on account of the fame of at least two of the competing horses, and some astonishment was manifested at the conclusion of this race to find that Hubert had failed to secure fii-st place.

STRIKE OF CARPENTERS AT THE EXHIBITION BUILDING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

STRIKE OF CARPENTERS AT THE EXHIBITION BUILDING. Anour 170 of the carpenters employed at the Exhibition building left their work 011 Tuesday morning and held a meeting in the Outer Domain near Bourke's statue, to consider the question of the disparity between the wages of carpenters and the wages of bricklayers employed 011 the building — the former being paid 10s. and the latter 12s, for a day of eight bom's — and, after discus sion, a deputation was appointed to wait upon the contractor, Mr. John Young, to ask him to make the carpen ters' wages equal to those of the brick layers. Mr. Yong, in reply to the deputation, said that he was paying the current rate of wages, and that he could not comply with their demand. He pointed out that if the wages were raised 011 this, a Government work, it would have the effect of forcing a rise in wages all over the country, which would be a most unfair and improper thing for the Government to do ; and he strongly advised the men not to per sist ...

QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

Queensland. The Courier, in a leader of the 19th inst., says that the finances of the colony require the most rigid economy to be practised by the Government, and that in all probability additional tax ation will be imposed. It expects that the deficiency at the end of June will be £150,000, and to cover this, aud to provide for the increased interest on the debt will require the sum of £200,000. It suggests the following savings that can be made : — Abolition of Ifwisard, £2500 ; reduce the Volunteer expenses by £15,000 ; police by £10,000 ; the salary of one puisiue judge ; grants to exhibitions and recreation grounds, £7000; post office reductions, £10,000; Marsupial Act, £2000; works, £45,000 — altogether £100,000. The Courier says it does not believe that these re ductions will be assented to by Parlia ment, consequently the £200,000 de ficiency will have to he met by increased taxation.

MARVELS OF THE TOILET AT THE PARIS EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

MARVELS OF THE TOILET AT THE PARIS EXHIBITION. Shoes as airy Oriental Sandals invite the stockings across the way. It is an excusable weakness, that which orna ments a shoe. More than a glove, does it bear ornamentation gracefully. Since the days of old. when cloves were un known, they seemed to have appealed to sentiment. It is quite possible for one to imagine even the angels in sandals. But in gloves ! One would as soon imagine them in masks. So let 11s enjoy the shoes in all their ex travagant elegance, as something quite appropriate. It would perhaps cover a large part of tlie ground these shoes stand upon if I were to say they more than suit the wonderful dresses hereto fore mentioned, as well as the stockings near by. But it would be doing them great injustice to say so little, for, though indescribable, it is possible to stir up the imagination to a pleasant revel amid these flowery feet, as it is easy to farcy them. There are wed ding shoes, mourning shoes, babies' shoes ; ...

Cure For Sleeplessness. — Some one who has tried the remedy : — Get out of bed, take a linen baudage — al- though a handkerchief, neatly folded lengthwise, will do as well, perhaps better. Dip one-half of the handker chief into water ; pass the wet portion around the wrist : over this lay the dry half and tuck in the ends so as to make all secure. Lie down again.

THE SONG OF THE CAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

THE SONfr OF THE CAMP. ' Give us a song the soldiers cried, The outer trenches guarding, When the heated guns of tlie camps allied Grew weary of bombarding. The dark Redan, in silent scoff, Lay, grim, aud threatening, under ; And the tawny mound of the Malakoff No longer belched its thunder. There was a pause. A guardsman said : ' We storm the forts to-morrow ; Sing while wo may, another day Will bring enough of sorrow. ' They lay along the battery's side, Below the smoking cannon ; Brave hearts, from Severn and from Clyde, And from the banks of Shannon. They sang of love and not of fame, Forgot was Britain's glory ; Each heart recalled a different name, But all sang ' Auuie Laurie,' Voice after voice caught up the song, Until its teudcr passion Rose like an aut lein, rich and strong, Their battle-eve confession. Dear girl, her name he dared not speak, But, as the song grew louder, Something upon the soldier's cheek Washed off the stains of powder. Beyond the darkening ocean burned ...
