A NOYEL SCHEME TO FACILITATE MATRIAMY. At a recent wedding reception in South Carolina a young lawyer begged leave to of fer a scheme of matrimony, which he believed would be beneficial.

'Sir,—The account given in your last issue of the above performance, from-tile pen of " Italia," is de serving of: your particular attention, as containing an unusual amount of nonsense and misrepresenta tion. " Italia" commences his account in a ridicu lous, bombastic, poetic manner, and tells us lie con siders it I113 " duty to do so." Next, he looks upon our society as a " coruscation of sporting element." A few rambling sentences now inform the public lib at he went to a barber's and got shaved, find then put.his leading harness, on—items of intense inter terest. After a few sentences on nothing, he describes the interior of the concert hall as having the appear ance of "human heads packed in the fashion of pumpkins on a barn floor"—quite a refined simile., Further on, ho criticises a pair of statuettes repre senting mythological personages, which were pasted on the walls, and freely exposes his ig...

MITTAGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 15 April 1885

KSITTTAGOWG. A short time ago I acquainted your readers with the fact that a dancing school had been formed hero by a Mr. Swan who has about twelve pupils. ■ Mr. Swan, thinking.liis pupils had made sufficient progress, invited' them to a ball last Wednesday night in Canter bury Hall. There were present about fifteen couples. The.music danced to was supplied by a piano and violin. The fair sex were of course equal to the occasion in dress, and some looked-" exceedingly charming." At one o'clock supper was announced, after which, I.think, dancing was carried on with more vigour,.and continued until after the small hours began to appear. The attend ance at this party was not: so. large as I have seen on previous occasionsbut I suppose the cause was want of, publicity. • Easterfcide was the occasion, of great fes tivities here in connection with the oddfel lows' lodge, and the two Sunday-schools, namely, Wesleyan and Church of England. I will endeavour to describe them each in turn.' Fi...

"Can mamma come down stairs next week?" asked Katy, the eldest daughter and the little housekeeper. , " Do you find my wife much better ?"saic. Mr. Marshall eagerly. He was a tall, grave man, pale with anxiety and nights of watch ing The doctor did not smile ; he did not even stop to answer their questions. V.I am in a great hurry," he said as he took his hat; " I must go to a patient who is dangerously ill. This evening I will call again. I have left instructions with the nurse." But the nurse's instructions were all con cerning the comfort of the patient," she was professionally discreet and silent. The chil dren playing on the stairs were told to make no noise. The gloomy day wore on,aud the patient slept and was not disturbed. But that night before ...

This operation, like the others, has met: with great difficulty. Hav ing reached a depth of 750 feet, the ,rods 'became jammed, and work had to be stop ped some time in order to get a new appara i tus to try and extricate them with.

S&'rOKATIO.N OF DEAD ANIMALS I TO LIFE. The transfer of blood from the bodies of healthy persons to those of the sick for the purpose of sustaining the strength and pro longing life has been practised by physcians •with limited success for several cen turies* Some very curious experiments in this direction have been lately made in Denver, Ool.j by Mr. G-. A. Armitage, an ac count of which, written by his assistant, Mr. James L. Finch, was given in. the Denver Daily News, from which we quote the following The subject operated upon was a medium seized terrier dog. It was securely tied,and an incision made in an artery in his neck, by which the animal was bled to death. He' certainly passed through the sympfcons of dying, and soon after the last blood issued from the wound his frame be came fixed and rigid, and his eyes showed the senseless glare of death. The room was kept at a temperature of 70 deg. Fahr., while the dog lay for threo hours dead. By this time he had become ver...

THE MOUNTAIN JUTOLET. Fbom dim and distant ranges, From caverns lone and deep./ I come with drowsy murmur Awakening from my sleep. The precious gold is shining In mystic midnight caves, It mingles with my waters, It Specks my tiny waves. I break through cliff and crevice, Through crags and riven rocks, And dash with liphtsome laughter1 O'er scattered granite blocks ; And then to sullen thunder I change my babbling-How, And leap a foaming cascade Down to the depths below. Deep in those purple gullies The fern-trees wave and sigh 5 Through sasafras and cedar The breeze goes soughing by* The native roses blossom Beside my limpid stream, Upon my curling ripples The morning sun-rays beam.

HORRIBLE SCENE AT A SCAFFOLD. An extraordinary scene was witnessed within Exeter Gaol .011 the morning of February 23rd, wlien an attempt was made to hang John Lee for the murder of Miss Keyes at Babbicombe lasb November. The place of execution at which the attempt was made to hang Lee was a new one. The earth be neath the floor of the coacl>house in which the prison van is usually kept has been hol lowed out, and one portion of the floor is made in the form of double doors which are retained in position by a central bolt; a lever works the bolt, and on this being pulled the doors are supposed to give way beneath the criminal's feet, and his body drops into the ten feet hole beneath. When Berry, the executioner, arrived on Saturday he tried the apparatus, and the drop fell freely without any weight being upon it, and with the addition of the weight of a man upon it the floor ought to have gone with the utmost freedom when released by the lever drawing the bolt.

Holloway's Pills.—Dyeanfcer y, Diarrhoea and Dis ordered Bowels.—These maladies are ever present, rind if left unattended frequently terminate fatally.

They combine in a surprising degree purifying, 'al ternative, regulating, and strengthening,,, qualities, and thus exert over every internal organ the whole somely controlling influence so necessary for subdu ing excessive action in the human frame.

CURIOSITIES OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 18 April 1885

CURIOSITIES OP THE BANK OF ENGLAND. The Bank of England originated in the brain of William Paterson, a Scotchman—better lcnown, perhaps, as the organiser and leader of the ill-fated Darien exj>edition. It commenced business in 1694, its charter—which was in the lirst instance granted for eleven years only—bearing date July 27 of that year. This charter has been from time to time renewed, its last renewal having taken place in 184-4. The origi nal capital of the Bank was £1,200,000, and it car ried on its business in a single room in Mercers' Hall, with a staff of 54 olerks. From so small a be ginning hasgrown thepresent gigantic establishment, which covers nearly three acres, and employs in town and country nearly 900 officials. All Bank of England notes are printed in the bank itself. Six printing presses are in operation, the same machine printing first the particulars of value, signature, &c., and then the number of the notes in consecutive order. The printing presses ...
