DISTRESS IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

DISTRESS IN ENGLAND. The Herald's London correspondent writing under date Feb. 27, says : — ' It is now universally admitted that an industrial and commercial crisis of unparalleled severity is passing over Great Britain, the end of which is not even looming in the future. That it will lead to a modification of the English tariff, and the laws of labour is almost certain. Not only are foreign countries gradually closing their markets against us, but the English manufacturers, forced by the cheaper productions of the Continent, are erecting workshops there, where articles are made such as those produced in Sheffield, Birming ham, Rochdale, and other centres of industry iu England, imported into the country, and sold for export. Strikes are useless to keep up wages, and if anything, at the present moment, they are a benefit to the employers, most of whom have warehouses overstocked, with no prospect of a reduction within the limits of a continuance of a pro fitable production. Thousan...

LIVINGSTONE AND THE LION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

LIVINGSTONE AND THE LION. Not long before his marriage Living stone had one of the narrowest of the many narrow escapes of his life. The Bakatlas in the neighbourhood of his mission station at Mabotsa were troubled with the visits of lions, which leaped into the cattle pens at niglit, and even attacked the herds by day. The people believing themselves to be bewitched by a neighbouring tribe, aud given by them into the power of these fierce brutes, were only half-hearted, and therefore unsuccessful in their at tacks upon them, so Livingstone volun ! teered to go with them on a hunting f . expedition to assist and encourage them. I They discovered their game on a small : tree-covered hill ; the circle of hunters, at first loosely formed around the spot, gradually closed up, and became com . pact as they advanced towards it. Me balwe, a native schoolmaster, who was with Livingstone, seeing one of the lions sitting on a piece of rock within the ling, fired, but missed him, the ball stri...

OPENING OF THE CANADIAN PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

OPENING OF THE CANADIAN PARLIAMENT. The Dominion Parliament was opened at Ottawa on 14th February by the Marquis of Lome, who, accompanied by her lioyal Highness the Princess Louise, occupied the Throne. His Lordship, in his opening speech, expressed his pro found gratitude for the reception which the Princess and himself had met with in Canada, and stated that he was com manded by the Queen to convey to the people of Canada her thanks for the loyal and generous welcome accorded to the Princess Louise. Passing then to other subjects, his lordship said he be lieved that the exhibits sent to Paris in the past year by Canada would prove beneficial to the trade of the Dominion with Europe. The Home Government had arranged the respective shares of Canada and Newfoundland iu the Halifax. Fishery Award. The Canadian cattle trade with England was seriously threatened by the appearance in various parts of the United States of pleuro pneumonia. To prevent its spread, and the con equent interr...

DISPOSITION OF THE RUSSIAN NAVY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

DISPOSITION OF THE RUSSIAN I NAVY. The London Examiner says : — ' Suf ficient attention does not seem to be given to the strong naval position that Russia will occupy in European waters by the time that the period for the evacuation of Bulgaria arrives. Some weeks before May 4 comes round Russia will have four powerful cruisers in the North Sea, four other vessels of the same class at the mouth of the Mediterranean, two ironclads in Greek waters, and three men-of-war from the Pacific near the Suez Canal. Such a strong naval force as this 011 foreign service Russia has not had since the Battle of Navarino, and its importance is all the more significant, fvom the cir cumstance that it is the strongest in the very point that we ourselves are weak. No one denies that were these thirteen vessels of war ranged in a line two or three of our recent iroucLds could send them to the bottom one after another in five or ten minutes ; but none of the Russsian cruisers are intended for a stand up ...

SPIRITUALIST TRICKS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

SPIRITUALIST TRICKS. The special correspondent of tlie Register (S.A.), writing from London on the 17th January, gives an. account of of a ' new spiritualist sensation,' from which the following is condensed : — Happening to be in Edinburgh lately, I liad the pleasure of assisting at a seance of anti-spiritualists, which is causing curses both loud and deep among the mediums. The demonstrator was a young American, Mr. W. J. Bishop, a godson of that most genial of essayists, Washington Irving. A good account of him — the first published in this country — was given by Dr. Carpenter in his article on ' Psychological Curiosities of Spiritualism,'' iu Frazct's Magazine of November, 1877. Mr. Bishop was already a famous man in America, or rather a famous youth, for lie bad hardly completed his curriculum at Harvard. He is the son of an eminent lawyer in New York, and a friend whom he dearly loved having been driven mad by the mediums, Mr. Bishop covenanted with himself that he would leave...

HISTORICAL FIBS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

HISTORICAL FIBS. Professor Wheeler recently read a paper before the Yalo Alumni Associa tion iti which lie ' exploded ' a number of popular historical tales : The famous saying attributed to Louis XIV. of France, E'ctat e'est moi, according to Professor Wheeler, was never uttered by Louis at all, but was said by Mazarin twenty years before Louis came to the throne, and said before Mazarin by Queen Elizabeth. Sappho never killed herself by jumping from a rock, but died a natural death. Le onidas fought at Theruiopylaj, not with only 300 at his back, but with 7000. The philosopher Diogenes never lived in a tub. The story of the virtues of the Roman 'matron Lucretia must be rejected, while the story of the Horatii and Curatii is worse than doubtful. The sons of Brutus were not the victims of their father's firmness, but of his brutality. It was utterly impossible for Hannibal to have followed up his victory at Cannoe, and the story of his using vinegar to cleave the rocks of the Alps i...

THE TRUE GENTLEMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

THE TRUE GENTLEMAN. Hence it is that it is almost a definition of a gentleman to say he is one who never inflicts pain. This description is both refined and, as far as it goes, ac curate. He is mainly occupied in merely removing the obstacles which binder the free and unembarrassed action of those about him ; and he con curs with their movements rather than takes the initiative himself. His bene fits may be considered as parallel to what are called comforts or conveniences in arrangements of a personal nature ; like an easy-cliai r or a good fire, which do their pait in dispelling cold and fatigue, though nature provides means of rest aud animal heat without them. The true gentleman in like manner carefully avoids whatever may cause a jar or a jolt in the minds of those with whom lie is cast; all clashing of opinion, or collision of feeling, all restraint, or suspicion, or gloom, or resentment ; his great concern being to make every one at their ease and at home. He has his eyes on ...

SHAKESPERE ON THE CIRCULATION OF THE BLOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

SHAKESPERE ON THE CIRCU LATION OF THE BLOOD. Was Shakespere the discoverer of the circulation of the blood ? Brutus ad dressing Portia says : — You are my true and honourable wife ; As dear to me as are the ruddy drops That visit my sad heart. Again Warwick, by the bedside of the murdered Gloucester, exclaims : — See how the blood is settled in his face ! Oft have I seen a timely-parted ghost, Of ashy semblance, meagre, pale, and blood less Being all descended to the laboring heart ; Who, in the conflict that it holds with death, Attracts the same for aidauce 'gainst the enemy Which with the heart there cools, and ne'er returneth To blush and beautify the cheek again. But see, his face is black, and full of blood. These passages have been quoted to show that Harvey's discovery was known to Shakespere. ' Julius Cccsar ' is supposed to have been written between 1G03 and 1607 ; Shakespere died in 1616. Haruey began to lecture 011 anatomy in 1615, and the book in which he gave to the wo...

WORKING CLASSES IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

WORKING CLASSES IN AMERICA. The Heralds correspondent, writing under date March 9, says : — ' The growth of the new labour party, the terrible railroad strike, and the alarm ing disclosures of the operations of the Molly Maguires have at least had cue eneec or arousing tlie immune public to the condition of the lower classes of American working men. The saddest feature of New York city life, probably, is the fact that four fifths of all our populations live in one fifth of the houses. The result is in some quarters there are to he seen j nothing but vast blocks of tenement houses, each holding its dozen or score, or perhaps even fifty families. More than half the rooms in such dwellings are without light or ventilation save as they are gained by openings into other rooms. And, of course, it is almost im possible but that at least one family iu such a house should be irregular in its habits, and so serve as a moral plague for the children of its neighbours.

WIDOW OF NAPOLEON III. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

WIDOW OF NAPOLEON III. The most striking paper that has ap peared in any of the American maga zines for some time past is contributed . to the August number of Lippiacott's by Mrs. Hooper. It has for its subject the life story of the Empress Eugenie. The writer laments that the supreme tact which once was fte distinguishing I quality of Eugenie has deserted her in the days of her decadence. The most graceful of women, she has not learned the art of growing old gracefully. She j clutches vainly after the fleeting shadow of her vanished charms. ' A head loaded with false yellow hail-, a face covered with paint and powder, a mincing gait, and the airs aud graces of an antiquated coquette — such to-day is she who was once the world's wonder for her loveliness and grace.' j Among the lesser pleasures of life there are few more satisfactory than that of finding duly filed a receipted account the duplicate of which (minus the receipt) is forwarded by a trades man with a request for immedia...

THE RUSSIAN PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

THE RUSSIAN PRESS. Mr. Suvouin's 'Rooski Kalendar,' issued a few days ago at St. Petersburg, contains, as we learn from the Globe , some curious statistics respecting the circulation of the leading Russian news papers. According to his figures, which he declares to be based 011 the best authority, the journal with the largest circulation is the A'ceva (not Neva, which is the title of a different periodi cal), or ' Cornfield,' which boasts of 27,933 subscribers. The Ncera is a weekly illustrated paper, having, be sides a novel, the latest fashions and a number of prizes ; in these respects meeting the requirements of Russian society more successfully than jouurnals with early and trustworthy political news. The next on the list is the Sean Ottcchestva, au inexpensive and uniu fluential daily, with 17,500 subscribers; followed by the Novoe Vrcmva with 11,387, and the Golos with 10,983. The Golos makes a boast of having a laeger number of advertisements than any. two Russian papers put...

A NAIL GUN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

A NAIL GUN. The New Zealand Times says : — ' One of the most simple, and at the same time most ingenious implements on view at the Wellington Industrial Exhibition, is an invention of a young man in this city, a Mr. F. Falkner. It is called a ' nail gun,' and is used for nailing down flooring boards. We have seen the implement in use, and as far as we are able to judge it is quicker in its work and insures greater cleanli ness than hand nailing could do. The apparatus is not unlike a gun in shape and is about the same length. It is kept in position with the foot aud knee, and the nail to be driven is placed (point 1 down) in an aperture at the top of the concern. It slides down to the bottom, and then the operator draws up a rod, and by one downward stroke of this the nail is cleanly driven into the boards beneath. A practiced hand, by this simple contrivance, could do the work of half-a-dozen men. We believe that Mr. Falkner is now improving upon his invention, aud is making a ' na...

FLUKE IN SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

FLUKE IN SHEEP. The rapidity with which the disease popularly known as fluke in sheep was disseminated throughout such a large portion of Victoria led many people to doubt the testimony of Helmin thologists, and to incliue to the belief that the disease was the result of un favorable pasturage. The following extract from a paper on the subject by I a veterinary authority will explain the facility with which the germs of the disease may be scattered broadcast by travelling flocks. The life history of the fluke-worms (Faxiola hepatica), iu its various phases, has not yet been fully made out. Professor Cobbold has, however, collected from the best observers reliable information as to most of the various changes which it undergoes. The mature fluke, which towards spring is naturally expelled from the bowels of its host, contains many thousand eggs — 40,000 are stated to have been counted iu the uterus of one female. Many eggs are found already separated from the parent floating in the l...

"CLIPPER " RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

' CLIPPER ' RACES. These composite merchantmen, or ' clippers,' are probably among the handsomest and swiftest sailing ships yet constructed, and on distant voyages they can still compete successfully with steamers, although there are indications that the latter will continue to gam upon the sailing ships, notwithstanding their greater cost for construction and maintenance. The China tea trade gave rise to the races, which attracted general attention to the composite clipper ships about 10 or 12 years ago. For several years prior to 1863 prizes had been offered 10 the vessel which first reached home with the new season's tea ; but from 7 863 to 1856 the com petition was keenest, and the perform ances of the ships were most remarkable. In the latter year no less than five vessels started from Foo-chow-foo almost at the same time ; three of them com pleted the voyage home iu 09 days, and the remaining vessels took 101 days. There never was a more excited finish to a race than that whi...

MARRIAGE A LA MODE: NEW STYLE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

MARRIAGE A LA MODE : NEW STYLE. No amount of early closing on Sundays and withdrawal of the licences of public dancing houses will keep our male bipeds from getting as thoroughly drunk as any of their fellows on the Continent, or our female element from being as human and frail as the typically abomi nable French woman. Hitherto, how ever, we have been contented with being quite as bad as other people and no worse, but of late years a morbid ambition would appear to have sprung up in the breasts of the golden youths of this country, a noble desire to excel in iniquity, and to not only soil them selves with mud, but to drag all who bear their name into the gutter with them. It is not well to get drunk, but then we have been told that the climate of our island is apt to lead to great temptations and undue indulgence in alcohol. It is reprehensible and deplor able for our sisters, daughters, and wives to forget their moral responsibilities and self-respect, and become unclean things on...

COLD WATER IN COLD WEATHER [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

COLD WATER IN COLD WEATHER. It should not be forgatton that the effect of cold water in cold weather is to stimulate the organism to increased activity. A great mistake is made when any part of the body is immersed in cold water, and left to part with its heat without any guarantee that the energy ot heat-production so severely taxed can respond to the requirement. It may easily happen that the internal calorific force — if we are at liberty to use that expression — will be exhausted; aud if that occurs harm has been done. The obvious principle of health pre servation is to maintain the circulation in its integrity ; and while the error of supposing that clothing can do more, than keep in the heat generated within is avoided, it is not less needful to guard against the evil of depriving tli£ body of the heat it has produced. The furnace should be well supplied with suitable fuel — that is, nutritous food ; the machinery of heat production, which takes place throughout the organism, ...
