Mr. W.

Why had the public busi vinaa linAn rtinn dolnTfflii ? Thftv titqto +yVM flinf if ?was because the Premier was not in good health ; but he had it on vory good authority that the Premier's illness had been put off till he came back. (Laughter.) Sir Henry Parkes had gone to England as a sort of ambassador extraordi nary to tho Court of St. James, to Washington, and elsewhere, but' he would like to know why - the whole business of the colony should be stayed while thii was going on. There had been all sorts of telegrams about the Premier's trip, and he had heard it stated that Bor...

These were the Aryans, a rnco tall and massive in slnltiro (tho men averag ing nt least 5 feet 8 inches and (lie woman 5 feet i) inches), with ' brachycophaliu' or round and broad skulls, with powerful jaws and prominent eyebrows, with faces rathor square or angular than oval, with fair, ruddy complexions and blue eyes, and rod or ilnxon hair. Of these, tho earliest that came may, perhaps, havo been the Latin tribes, with the Dorians and Ionians ; but tho first that made their way through Western Europe to tho shores ol tho Atlantic wore tho Gael, or true Kelts.

Nature. ADVENTURE WITH A BLACK DEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 3 August 1882

mature. ;. ADVENTURE WITII A DLACK DEAB. . Ii would seem improbable that the young of the black bear were liablo to fall a proy to tho fox and black cat, or fisher, yet such is the fact. This happens, of course, when tho cubs aro very young, and incapable of following their dam in her search for food. Tho black cat is the most successful cub-slayer. The fox, notwithstanding his proverbial sagacity, is often surprised by tho return of the bear, . and killed before ho can escape from tho don. An Indian hunter, who knew of two litters of cubs which he intended to capture as soon as they wore old enough to bo taken from their dam, was anticipated in one case by a black cat, and in tho other by a fox. Tho latter paid the penalty of his adventure with his life, and was found in tho den- literally torn into shreds by tho furious bear. Tho fox had killed one of the cubs, and tho old bear, hoping to find a more secure place, had gone off with tho two remaining cubs. The Indian overtook and s...

STATION, FARM AND GARDEN. WINE AS A COLONIAL PRODUCT. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 3 August 1882

? ♦ ? STATION, FARM AND GARDEN. BY OLD COLONIST. WINE AS A COLONIAL PRODUCT. Vine growing and wine making are not new industries in the colonies by any means. ?The earlier settlers cultivated the vine in New South Wales; and, after tho fever of the digging times had passed off, not a few of the moro lucky ones who remained in the colonies wore induced to do so by the prospect of marrying and settling down as vino arowers. Indeed, no small number of tho farming, vine glowing, and gardening classes, had graduated on tho gold fields ere taking up the hoc and going in for the cultivation of tho soil.- Such men wore very desirable acquisitions to the , classes who cultivate the land, for, in addition to the capacity for downright hard labour brought with, them from the life of the miner, many of them are men of tolerable education and acquaintance with the ways of the world. It is to such men — not ex-minors of necessity — but mon of intelligence, that this paper on the prospects of wine...
