A Merry Christmas to all our readers. [Newspaper Article] — The Singleton Argus and Upper Hunter General Advocate — 23 December 1874
A Merry Christmas to all our readers. IN the rapid succession of days, weeks, and months, absorbed in the cares of this life, we are once more brought round to the pleasant and happy season of Christmas, consecrated to the kindly feelings of friendship and charity. What the oasis is to the weary traveller worn out by the heat and ex posure of a desert journey, Christmas is to the harassed wayfarer on. life's path. Then it is he tastes, in happy com munion with his fellow men, the agree able forgetfulness of his post toils, and a temporary abstraction from his present disappointments. If there is one thing for which we ought to feel some gratitude to our forefathers, it is the noble institution of Christmas, associated with so many of our cheerful remembrances, mid bound up with so much that has contributed to make one's life endurable: it is at this season men', seek to forget and forgive, '? to renow and consolidate old and interrup ted friendships,! to gather around their cheerful...

THE ANNEXATION OF THE FIJI ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Singleton Argus and Upper Hunter General Advocate — 23 December 1874
THE ANNEXATION OF THE FIJI ISLANDS. The Times cannot profess feelings of unmixed satisfaction at the intelligence that the Fiji Islands have become apart of her Majesty's dominions. It was perhaps, unavoidable that we should at last assent to' the transfer of sovereignty so strangely forced npon us by the King, but (says the Times) we speak the thoughts of all sound politicians when we should have been glad if the necessity of considering the offer bad. never arisen.- Even now it is admitted that the arguments for and against accepting the cession are nicely balanced and we shall have to walk with great circumspection to escape future trouble in relation to Fiji. The King has Tra conditionallyjsnrrendered the sovereignty of the islands; but we know from ex perience, if experience on such, a point ! were nceessary,howdiffiraltitistoascer tain with precision the' authority of a - King' of such 'communities as, that of Fiji.
