On the Murrumbidgee Thirty Years Ago. By AN OLD BUSHMAN. (CONTINUED. ) WE faood each other for tho last timo. Davis's voico shook a little, as he said " Well, Mi-. -Tones, I am almost sony, at this mo ment, that I am going homo. I had no idea that I had learned to love my bondage so well," ho added, with a melancholy smile. "I Bhall not soon forgot tho happy time I'vo passed on tho Lachlan, nor tho groat kind ness I've recoivod from ovory ono on tho establish ment, particularly from youisolf, Mr. Jones." Here the poor fellow's voico became husky, and ho turned his bond aside. I was moved myself. I felt that anothortio which bound mo to tho place was about .to snap, and I felt homo-sick. What would I not have .givon at that moment to havo been able to accompany any young friend to my nativo country ? But it was mselcss ropining-I was a " lifer," and I need never entertain a hope of revisiting tho placo of my birth. ""Well, mv (1i>n.i* follow." uni A T noa," "1.__ fulness I was far...

EDITORIAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 March 1870

EDITORIAL NOTES. TUB most important measures now before Parlia ment-Mr. Buchanan's Divorce Bill and Mr. Brookos's Bill for tho Abolition of Capital Punish I ment-have not been asked for by tho public ; nor do we believe they are acceptablo to a largo majority of the community. Public attention during I the recent general election was not directed to those I questions, and consequently no expression of the sentiments of tho constituencies was elicited in that' quarter. Under such circumstances it will, wo think, be a matter tojbo'.deeply rogretted if these bills become law. There is no necessity for hurrying such important mcasuros through Parliament in such a BGBsion as tho present ; and indeed to do so would partako somewhat of a breach of faith on the part of our representatives,-for it was novor imagined whon tho House mot that any other than matters of pressing urgency would be dealt with. Neithor of the measures is of such extremo urgency that it can not be delayed for a few mo...

MATCHES AT NEWTOWN.-Last Friday (tho 11th), several of our leading shots assembled on the New town Cricket Ground¡ to shoot off some birds provided by that well-known pigeon caterer, Mr. T. Galvi, who for some time has been suffering severely from illness. It must be confessed that a man's sporting proclivities must havo been of a rather olastic nature to induco him to go trap shooting on such an afternoon as last Friday; but our shooters are very enthusiastic, and getting themselves and their guns well soaked, is to thom but a trifle. So thoy went to Newtown and shot off favo sweepstakes at a lot of fair birds all'except a few at tho latter end of tho afternoon. Tho first sweep was at throe birds each, twenty-five yards rise ; and Messrs. Jamison and Cheelce divided, having killed all their birds. In the seoond event, the conditions being tho samo, Messrs, Manton, and "Underwood negooiated their two spooial, and divided. A third sweep on similar termB, gave Mr, "Un...

Facetiae. " Let me have a pound of mussels, my good woman, will you ?" " Pound, sir ! we don't sell them by weight, we sell them by measure." "Then let me have a yard." A young lady, a few evenings since, said to her cavalier, " Please clasp my cloak." " Certainly," said he, clasping his arms around her, "and the contents too." "My dear," said a wife to her husband, "did you ever read of the plague in London?" *'No, I don't want to read it ; it's enough to have a plague in my own house."
