On Rings. [WRITTEN FOR THE "GAZETTE."] [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 23 February 1889

On Rings. [WRITTEN FOR THE " GAZETTE."] r _A J L J. . Love ot outward adornment is one or the strongest instincts in the human breast. The savage and the civilisedj alike evince an overwhelming predilection i for some ornamental or specious para- j j phenalia that shall excite the admiration or envy of the neighbour, and at the same time minister to the yearning of the heart for something out of the common, which shall be as the gold wherein a pre cious jewel finds its setting. The savage rejoices in her beads; the civilised in her choice lace. The savage prides herself on the flatness of her nose ; the civilised (we speak of the female persuasion just now) on the diminutiveness of her foot. The savage delights in her woad and tattoo; the civilised in her rouge and noir. But there is a wonderful and striking unanimity in their affection for rings. They are the last relics of an old decayed barbarism which unite a pro gressive and enlightened age to an old world and obsolete form of ...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 23 February 1889

LOCAL AND GENERAL. OMISSION.-We have been asked to state that in the subscription list published last week the name pf A. J. Viney, 2s 6d, was omitted. FtRE.-A fire was discovered on Sunday night at the shop of Joseph Arnstein, George-street. The alarm was given by Mr. J. M'Grath, and the flames were promptly extinguished. This is the second time during the past few months that a fire has been averted at this shop. It is supposed that the rats got at a quantity of loose matches lying on a shelf in one corner of the barber's shop. WINDSOR GASLIGHT CO.

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 23 February 1889

TOPICS OF THE DAY. Listen to me, and if you speak me fair I'll tell you news, iudificrent good to either. Now that the election is over, it is to be hoped that any ill-feeling which may have been engen dered during the contest will be cast aside, and that the greatest cordiality between both political parties will continue to exist. I believe with him who wrote, May politics never true friends disunite, Nor spit its venom on the sparkling glass; May envious feelings sink in endless night, And rage and malice ever from us pass. The fight which has just been brought to a close was, as far as we are locally concerned, fought out fairly and squarely, and on both sides every endeavour was made to win the day. The result of the elections as a whole is not at all satisfactory, and it is the general opinion in political circles that a dead-lock will result, in consequence of the parties being too evenly balanced. In fact, another general election in the course of three months will not be su...

Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 23 February 1889

Concert. The concert arranged by Mr. W. Moses attracted a large and fashionable audience to the Church of England Schoolroom on Wednesday evening last, and the general verdict, at the close of the enter tainment, was that nothing could have been more enjoyable. The instrumental music was of the highest order of merit, and the excellent manner in which each item was rendered demonstrated the fact patent to all-that the most careful study must have been indulged in by Mr. Moses and his talented family to attain such a remarkable state of proficiency. The violin, which is a favourite instrument just now, may be said to be only second in importance to the human voice, while so orchestra without a violin would be as devoid < f tone and balance as a picture without light. It alone has the powers of expression and tone-paint ing, of sympathy and musical speech, with which only the human voice can compare, and on hear ing the delightful strains, when one of these instru ments is ...

Upon one of the principle squares of the <aty stood the great philantrhopic establish-. ineat founded by Mr. Richard Utterex.

It was to this institution that those who were disgusted with existence came to seek euthanasia ; of course it was intended exclu sively for the disgusted ones with dollars, for those who were not blessed with this world's goods could carry out their sinister designs without the assistance offered to the guests of Euthanasia Villa. But, for the unhappy possessors of millions, Mr. Richard Utterex was really a benefactor.

Presentation to Dr. Hozier. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 23 February 1889

* Presentation to Dr. Hozier. On Friday evening last about 40 gentle men assembled at the Royal Hotel to witness the presentation of an address and a piece of plate to Dr. Hosier, who has disposed of his practice in this town to Dr. Gibson. The Hon. W. Walker, M.L.C. occupied the chair and said they had met there at a time of great excitement to perform a most pleasing duty. Dr. Hozier was leaving then, and his departure was the cause of great regret, not only to his numerous personal friends, but to the residents of the district generally. The present they had to make him was not a highly valuable one, but was one which he oould look upon with delight in years. He read apologies from Dr. S. T. Knaggs, (Sydney), and to the Rev. James Cameron, Richmond, and then read the following address: Dr. Charles H. Smith Hozier, F.R.C.S-, Dub lin. Dear Sir,-We, the undersigned residents of Windsor and district, New South WaJes, desire to ^express our deep regret at your departure from amongst u...

Permanent Effects. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 2 March 1889

Permanent Effeots. Permanency of effect is a great desideratum, whether in the arts, in literature, or in medicine. Especially is this true in medicine. A patient may spend a large amount of money and pass many weeks or months of suffering, only to find at the end that the aid secured was but temporary. We are glad, therefore, to be able to say to our readers that there is one medicine which has not only done a vast amount of good in curing people, but best of all, its potency is such that they remain cured. We would not make so unequivocal a statement had we not the evidence of proof established beyond the shadow of a doubt. JOHN CANN, Esq., a member of the Ballarat Mining Board, who, in May, 1886, was given up to die, by five of the best Victorian physicians, suffering as he was from Bright's disease in its last stages, was restored to complete health with Warner's safe cure, and remains well to this day. Mr. Cann's present address is Mt. Blackwood, Victoria; write to or call on h...

Scissors and Paste. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 2 March 1889

Scissors and Paste. J. H. Young elected Speaker. Four Freetraders voted for Abbott. At a reception given to Henry George in Lon don, in December last, Mr. Davidson, his " fore most English champion," said that " Mr. George had raised journalism from the level of a mer cenary occupation to that of an apostolic mis sion." Gladstone is a great linguist. When James G. Blaine was recently presented to President Carnot, of France, the services of an interpreter were required to make conversation possible. Mr. Gladstone talked French glibly to an inter viewer a few days ago, and responded in Italian to a demonstration in his honour at Florence. If he should go to Athens, he could chat with the natives in modern Greek. He could address the students of a German university in their mother tongue or read to them from the Latin and Greek classies. Gladstone's tongue is not alone eloquent -it is highly cultured. That Mr. Paddy Crick should be returned and Mr. Wise rejected is one of thos^ myster...

An Electioneering Squabble. FINED £5 FOR ASSAULT. At the Police Court on Tuesday, before the Police Magistrate, and Messrs. Con Ion, S. J. Dunstan, J. B. Johnstone, Hol land, Primrose, and Yeo, Joseph Percy Willoughby charged George Louis Asher Davies with assaulting him on Feb. 18th. Defendant pleaded not guilty.

Dr. Callaghan deposed that on Mon day, February 18, he examined com plainant, and found him suffering from bruises on the back, caused by a fall from a horse ; also examined the back ot his neck, on which there was no visible injury ; much injury would accrue from a blow or; the neck ; it would be danger ous at any time. To defendant: A heavy blow could be struck without leaving a mark ; a man's neck could be broken without a bruise being shown. Joseph Percy Willoughby, dentist, de posed that on Monday, 18th, he saw defendant, who had just come from witness's door ; he had an account in his hand,...

A Few Notes on Irrigation. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 2 March 1889

A Few Notes on Irrigation. [WRITTEN TOR THE GAZETTE BY G. C. J ] Impersonally, I can see no difficulty in the local or national irrigation, provided we Stave men in office free from the taint of corruption; and capable of knowing their own niinds. The country can never be anything without it; and what irrigation has done for India, California, and is now doing for Victoria, it will do for us. Once more I return to the Royal Com mission's Report to quote what their engineer, Mr. H. S. M'Kinney, has said about the Hawkesbury and Nepean, which should be interesting to the readers of the , GAZETTE, bearing as it does upon Mr. Griffin's scheme, which I do not think that gentleman claims as original. Anyhow, here is what Mr. M'Kinney says : NOTES AND MEMORANDA REGARDING THE NEPEAN AND WAR It AG A MBA RIVERS. The Warragamba scheme of Mr. Thomas Woore .was intended not only to supply Sydney witli .water but also to pro\ ide for the irrigation of a large extent of land in the county of Cumbe...

WISEMAN'S FERRY. Dr. Barry, the Primate, who at present is'the guest of Mr. T. A. Dibbs, on board the commodious yacht, Ena, visited Wiseman's Ferry on Tuesday. He took an interest in seeing a start made in the re-building of the church, which a year ago, when in ruins, was taken down by the Roads Depart ment, it being partially on the Government road.
