PIANNER SPANKING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

PIANNER SPANKING. G. A. Sala writes : — I ain deeply in- ? terested, and shall always continue to be interested, I hope, in the Better Education of Women — suc'i an educa- i tion, I mean, which shall enable them to face the world single-handed. I maintain that three parts of the time usually devoted to exercitations on the piano in the education of young ladies is wickedly and cruelly wasted. I maintain that were clever gilds taught to paint on porcelain, to model in clay and wax, to turn, to carve, and especially to draw on wood, they would be 100 times better employed, and 50 times nearer the possibility of earning from £3 to £10 a week, than in ' spanking ' on the pianoforte. The expression is not mine ; I take it from an American humourist. And what is the end of the ' spanking 1 ' In a vast number of instances, when a young lady is married, she abandons her pianoforte practice altogether. And if, by adverse circum stances (and those circumstances may overtake the daughters of t...

THE LANDS DEPARTMENT. An important minute written by Mr. . Blackmail, the officer in charge of the Conditional Purchase Branch under Mr. Moi'iarty, respecting the employment of twenty-two additional clerks, lias been laid before Parliament. Mr. Blackmail makes the application because four large rooms have been engaged for the Branch, aud shows the manner in which he proposes to employ the clerks, if their employment be authorised. We ( Echo) quote the following para graphs from the memo, in question : — ' I propose to employ eight in work ing up the arrears of declarations, now about 9000, and accumulating at the rate of about 1500 a mouth ; eight of the trained staff were engaged in this ?work some time ago, and in less than three months in after hours prepared 6000 cases and lodged them in the hands of various inspectors ; eight new hands however intelligent, cannot pos sibly do more, and with a less number there would be 110 chance of disposing of them, as they would most likely ...

DEATH FROM WHISKEY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

DEATH FROM WHISKEY. A New York paper says : — '* Tbe most I foolish bet we ever heard of was that J made lately in George Shaw's Baloon, J on Florence avenue, by Michael Hall, | — that he could drink one quart of J whiskey within five minutes. Hall had | been drinking a good deal during the J morning, and was at the time of betting 3 somewhat intoxicated. The sum bet | was only 10 dol,, which fact alone j shows the condition of the man's mind j at the time. A quart measure was | procured and filled to the brim with j whiskey, the quality of which, we 1 suppose, was about the same as that 1 generally served in Mining towns in I this State. Hall put the measure of | liquor to his mouth, and without taking 1 it from his lips, drank it to the dregs. 1 Before a minute had passed he fell to 1 the floor, apparently dead, and in that | condition was at once removed to his j lodging-house on Helena avenue. Dr. g Brierly was summoned, aud emetics | were given but without producing the 1 desir...

THE LATE BOAT RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

THE LATE BOAT 11 ACE. In reply to the letter of Rush, denying the justice of the umpire's decision in the late sculling match, Mr. Richard Driver, the peison alluded to, has written the following letter to the Evening .Vtws : — ' I learned for the first time, on reading a letter signed Michael Rush, which appeared a few days since, that in his opinion the public are not satis lied with the decison in the late boat race. My own opinion is that no un prejudiced person who was iu a position to judge correctly can be. found to state that the race was not fairly won by Laycock, and I most unhesitatingly assert that it was. ' I was in a position to judge and distinctly saw Mr. Rush cease rowing before reaching the flag boat, he being evidently pumped out. ' Mr. Rush now says ' I can affirm, without the least doubt, that I passed the flag boat at the finish of the course first.' I am satisfied that he did not, and it does seem remarkably strange that it was not until more than a week after...

ALLEGED MANSLAUGHTER BY MEANS OF OPIATES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

ALLEGED MANSLAUGHTER BY MEANS OF OPIATES. It will be recollected that intelligence was recently received from Melbourne to the effect that Captain Bance was supposed to have died from the effects of an overdose of bromide of potassium, given to him by a mail-nurse, whose object. was to rob the patient when he was helpless. We learn from the Tele graph that an inquest on the remains of Captain Bailee was concluded on the 23id inst. Frederick Paid was before the Court on the charge of administer ing tbe excessive dose. James Edward Neild, M. D., deposed that he had made a post-mortem examination of the body of the deceased ; the cause of death was disease of the heart and brain. Louisa de Lorentz Bance deposed that deceased, Henry Prescott Bailee, was her hus band ; witness gave evidence as to Paul being the attendant of her deceased hus band ; also that he absconded from his engagement after having given Captain Bailee an opiate, as Paul stated, at the request of the deceased.

THE "TOTALISATOR." [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

THE ' TOTALISATOR.' Great consternation was caused in the ranks of f.he bookmakers at the late Rand wick Autumn Meeting by the in troduction of the ' totalisator,' a system of backing horses by machinery, which first came under notice at the Farewell Race Meeting to his Excel lency Sir Hercules Robinson ; but, at that time, owing to the smallness of its operations, not much attention was paid to it, either by the Press or the members of the bookmaking fraternity. The proprietor, Mr. Siegfried Franck, having obtained permission from the committee of the A.J.C. previous to the late meeting, erected a room between the saddling paddock and the judge's box, and the public were not long in discovering that, under the new system, they could obtain much longer odds than the bookmakers could afford to lay them. The result was that, although Mr. Franck had six clerks working as hard as they could, the building was surrounded each day by an excited throng of speculators, and it was with diffic...

THE POSTAL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

The Postal Service. ill'. Berry's preseuce in Loudon has probably facilitated the settlement of the dispute between the Imperial and Colonial Post Offices as to the division of the jwstage receipts, and if so he is entitled to our thanks. The matter was beiug elaborately discussed by cor respondence, and the British authorities had already intimated that they were prepared to give way. The decision might in any case have ultimately come out as it has done ; but Mr. Berry's j personal presence and argument has doubtless been of great help in bringing the matter to a settlement without delay. The colonies may rest content with the settlement as a reasonable compromise. The first demand on the part of the Home Government was ex orbitant, and though it was not a direct tax on the colonies, was very much like forcing the colonies to tax themselves for Imperial benefit. It is quite true that these colonies have, much against the wish of the Imperial authorities, established three separate...

A TREMENDOUS EXPLOSION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

A TREMENDOUS EXPLOSION. The first sensational blast at the Victor Harbour breakwater works — and the largest ever fired iu Australia — took place on Saturday afternoon, April 19, and proved a great success. The up heaval was a grand sight to witness, and between 35,000 and 40,000 tons of rock and earth were displaced. For months past this explosion has been anticipated with some amount of trepidation by the more nervous among the local residents, and with a good deal of curiosity far beyond the Southern districts. All kinds of rumours are afloat as to the amount of powder that would be used, and as to the terrible effects the blast would have on house hold property — in Port Victor and even as far as Port Elliot. Various preliminary paragraphs have appeared in the newspapers, and in these the charge has been variously stated at from four to twelve tons of gunpowder. As is generally the case under such circumstances, the smaller estimate was more nearly correct, the actual amount use...

THE IMPENDING DEAD LOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

The Impending Dead Lock. The Council and Assembly are at present on anything but the best of terms with each other, and something like a dead lock, in a mild way, seems fast approaching. On the night of the 25th ult some very strong language was used in the Assembly concerning the doings of hon. members in the ad joining Chamber. The discussion arose through the mauner in which the Privileges Bill was dealt with by the Council. As our readers are aware, a Conference between members of both Houses took place on this subject, and the Council lias refused to go into com mittee to receive the report of its own managers at this Conference. In acting as they did we think the majority of the Council were wrong, and hardly treated the Assembly, composed as it is of the people's representatives, with the courtesy due that body. - We have more than once expressed our opinion on this Privileges Bill, and consider the views held by a majority of the Council concerning it to be correct. Nay, mor...

JEWISH PRAYERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

JEWISH PRAYERS. |j The fixed prayers for the morning, which were in use at the time of Christ, in the form we are about to reproduce, consisted ( 1 ) of two benedictions, after which it has been common to read the Ten Commandments, a practice abolished lest tbe Sailducees should pretend that this was the only important point in the Law ; (2) of the repetition of the Shcma (so called fro;:i the first word in it, Shcma — ' I fear, O Israel,' etc.), which was really a sort of -4 ' belief,', aud consisted of the recital of Dent. vi. 4-9, xi. 13-21 ; Numb. xv. 37-41 ; (3) of another benediction ; and (4) of the Shemoneh-Esrch, or eighteen benedictions. Iu reality, however, they were nineteen, a special prayer having afterwards been added against the ' heretics' — most probably the early Christians. Of these Eulogies, the : three first and the three last are the oldest in date. ; while those numbered xiiL, xiv., xv., date from the final dis solution of the Jewish commonwealth. The afterno...
