Result of the Acclimatisation Craze in Jamaica. [LONDON POST, 13TH MAY.] [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 15 July 1882
Result of the Acclimatisation Craze in Jamaica. [LoxnoN POST, 13TH ÍIAY.] Ax inquiry into thc -working of the Act for thc Protection of Wild Birds, if Mr. Gladstone would pledge himself not to fcrsce grave political complications likely to arise therefrom, might bc both interesting and profitable. The divergence of opinion as to the results of orni- thological legislation so far is certainly curious. In sonic parts of the country sparrow clubs have been reorganised with a view to checking what was described last autumn as a "plague of small birds'' ; but, on the other hand, philor nithic voices are still far from silent as to the depopulation of our groves and fields of their feathered denizens by thc wholesale and direct evasion of the act by bird-catchers. The fact is that the balance of nature, like the "balance of power" in Europe, is easily upset, but incapable of violent rectification. Those who are in favour of more drastic mea- sures, and who would by act of Parliament compe...
Slavery in Hongkong. [From the London "Spectator" of April 29.] [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 15 July 1882
Slavery in Hongkong. [From thc London " Spectator " of April 29.] THE social questions which come up before the Colonial Utricp, as the ultimate referee from forty states in all degrees of civilisation, are naturally endless : but few can be more per- plexing than the ouo now cumiuy up from Hongkong. A system of slavery exists in that colony of the most disgusting character ; it has beeii denounced both by the Cxovernor and thc Chief Justice, and the Colonial Office must, therefore, under pain oí parliamentary opprobium. put it down. They are not un- willing, and do no', deny, though they ex- tenuate, the facts: but to do it evidently taxes all their «xperience in tentative legisla- ron. About the facts, there is practically no dispute. Those who advise reform assert, and those who deprecate reform admit, that Chinese fathrrs and guardians do constantly soil their children, for money and by formal deed, into bondage,-the boys to be here- ditary domestic servants, and the girls to bc...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 15 July 1882
LOCAL AND GENERAL. GENERAL SKOBEIOFF.-The neath of this splendid soldier, at the early age of 39, was announced by cablegram, dated London, Julv 7. He has been well called the Hero of Plevna, which is no misnomer, as one can glean from Archibald Forbes* spirited sketch, transmitted by telegram from Melbourne, on Sunday. Forbes knew the hero well ; and j what with his own knowledge of him and extracts from the notes of his other dead friend, MacGahan, the said sketch is brist- j ling with the liveliest incidents in con nee» ion with SkobelofFs military career. He appears to have been a Black Prince, a Henry the V.. a Hotspur, a Sir Phillip Sidney, a Bayard and a Murat-all rolled into une, and was a credit to Russia or any other more favoured country. Requiescal in pace. SMART TRAVELLING.-As an instance of i what can be done in speedy travelling he ! tween Sydney and Riverina and Victoria since the opening of the railway to Hav, it may be stated that a gentleman left Sydney by train a...
SPARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 15 July 1882
SPARES. What flights of fancy, "what tropes, what similies/what poetry, is there not contained in G. T. C's letter in your c ^temporary ? It puts one in mind of Frank Fowler's " Lights and Shadows "-with the Lights left out. " The outworks have been carried " and / (not quite alone, however.) did it. The flag now flies on the ramparts, while our enemies lie dead in the breach. Tennyson, old boy j write us another " Charge "-this time of three only. Somebody, as usurd, has got bold of the bull by the tail re the Tempi ir scrimmage. lt is plain to be seen where the venom .fvjdV^ \ent-"the skunk, and the mock religious cove," to wit. The Bibliographer of the future will have to add another work on Evidence. We have already " E vidences of Creation," " Evi- dences of Christianity," and now the read- ing world will be delighted with " Evidences of Municipal Vitality" by G. T. Collins, Windsor. Sweet William has been relieving his bile among the Gundagaigeese ; and the absent Sireneree co...
PINS. Cum grano salis. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 15 July 1882
PINS Cum grano salis. Referring to the E;*yptian muss, the other night in Melbourne, Archibald Forbes spoke np for the Indian troops of the Empire. " He'd back," he said, "a Brigade of little G.oarkos to thrash soundly the whole array that Arabi Pasha could bring into the field." And further on, he said, " there was once a stedfast old gentleman of the name of Palmerston. If be could be spared from'thé other world for about^ week he would »ettie the Egyptian difficulty with neatness and promptitude." . There's not a doubt of it ! and had the same old gentleman been on this side the Styx a few years ago, old England wou'd hive been saved mueh humiliation in the way of snubbings from blustering European k'risers. She would also hrve been spared theignonimy of South African defeats, by both Boers and Zulus, as wéllÎÊM* certain retrograde movements in Afghanistan*., One is tempted io look back at the past and speculate upon what might have been had the burly old Viscount not shuffled of...

THE IMíesírarij Cjirmrirle. AND FARMERS' ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, JULY 16, 1882. I --. " CONVERSIONS are ;:bout " '.as now become apothegmatic, and, in fact, it is a true one, for some conversions at the present day are of the most startling kind-especially in the town of Windsor. Yesterday we saw men frigidarians ; to-day we see them absolutely salamanders-nothing is too wami for them. All the non-progressive, obstructive, old identities are, all at once, become energetic men of progress and wide spread liberality; and universal light seems to be illuming the way to the mitlenium. Having been for a long time right in the shades (sic) of an I eclipse," we naturally feel as if a little extra I oxygen bad got into the air, and we have a very strong impulse to stand upon our heads and do something abnormal for very joy of the thing. And all this wonderful reaction has been brought about by "one or two aldermen and the local Editor." Happy r*tepayers ! to possess even two such aldermen-leavi...
