Ouii readers have already heard by wire of tlie collision between the Anchor Line steamer, Utopia, bound from Naples for New York with 830 passengers, and H.M.S. Anson, off Gibralter. The disaster has proved much more calamitous in regard to loss of life than was expected. The vessel was seen on the evening of March l?th, steaming towards the anchorage in Gibralter Bay. When abreast of the British ironclad. Anson, flagship of Bear-Admiral , Jones, second in command of the Channel Squadron, which was lyingat anchor, the Utopia staggered as if unable to make headway against the strong curr nt running out at the fame. In a moment the fierce gale blowing, combine ! with this current, swept the ill-fated vessel across the bows of the Anson, which is a twin-screw first class armour-clad with a formidable ram.

The Poet's Corner. The Son that never Came. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 23 May 1891
The Son thai newer Canter He had passed away in anger From beneath tlie oldroof-tree To a land of fairer promise O'er the blue unfkthomed sea, And the old folfce loug had waited And were waiting still in Tain Forthe boy they'd long expected, - For the son that never came. And their souls grew sick with longing, And their hearts grew full of fears Asthe dull weeks slowly drifted Into months and then to years; And the mother's gentle bosom Was oft burdened with a sigh Asher thoughts flew o'er the billows' To her absent wandering boy. 'And the father's limbs grew weaker, And his face grew old with care While the streaks of shining silver Grew still broader in his hair, And his eyes kept ever turning Down the winding Tillage lane As though watching for the wanderer, For the son that never came. Then at night when lamps were lighted They would plaee his vacant chair, Then together both would picture Their beloved one sitting there; And the door was never bolted But was ever left ajar For...

It Could Not Happen Now. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 23 May 1891
| It Could Hot Happen Kow. - Ere country ways liad turned to street And long ere we were born, A lad and a lass would chance to meet, Some merry April mom; The willows bowed t© nudge the brook, . The cowslips nodded gay, And he would look, and she would look,, And both would look away. Yet each-and this is not absurd Would dream about the other, And she would never t reathe a word To that good dame her mother, Our Girls are Wiser Now. 'Twas very quaint, 'twas very strange, Extremely strange you must allow; Dear me I how modes and customs change I' It could not happen now. Next day that idle, naughty lass Would rearrange her hair, And ponder long before the glass Which bow she ought to wear ; And often she'd neglect her task, And seldom care to chat And make her mother frown, and ask, " Why do you blush like that?" : And now she'd haunt with footsteps elow That inead with cowslips yellow, Down which she met a week ago That stupid, staling fellow. Our Girls are Wiser Nowieg 'Twas very...

BOXING. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 23 May 1891
BOXINGL Mr. Walker received a telegram from Smiler, of the Heferee on Saturday, stating that Joe Goddard was leaving Sydney that ?day'for Charters Towers, and that hewas very, confident of victory. He has left his departure rather late, as he cannot now arrive liere before Saturday morning, but probably he has preferred to finish his trail ing before leaving, and as he has a day for a run on shore in Brisbane on the way, he is not likely to be any the worse for his trip. Anyhow he knows best what is-good for hiT, and he is not likely to throw a. chance away. Mr. Walker also requests me to inform those .who some time ago ' won medals in the heavy, middle and light-weight competitions, that they will be presented with the trophies on the evening of the Lees-Goddard fight, «&lt;-, tke Athenfevun Hall.
