SYDNEY ARCHITECTURAL, DEFORMITY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 10 May 1879

Sydney Architectural Deformity. It has been the hard fortune of the city of Sydney to have been distorted and warped iu its earliest days, and to have enjoyed during its growth none of the thoughtful care which might have counteracted aud corrected the de t-. . _ ? lj.. ? £. ? ? : iormivies rcsuiiiug uuui ui« iiuuiuuuto | of a casual origin and neglected infancy. All the efforts and outlays of recent years have been ineffectual to repair the negligences of the past. The figure of the city was ' set,' so to speak, before it began to be recognized that it was fated to fill a prominent station among cities, and to support the dignities of a great capital. With narrow and sinuous streets — a mighty maze, a maze without a plan — hemmed in by alienated lands, with its municipal government iu the hands chiefly of free holders, whose interest it was that the minutest sub divisions should be per mitted, and the narrowest thoroughfares deducted from their estates when laid out, and sold for h...

SOME FACTS ABOUT THE WAGES QUESTION AND STRIKES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 10 May 1879

SOME FACTS ABOUT THE WAGES QUESTION AND STRIKES. When a nation, thriving in its com mercial relations with other countries aud doing a large export trade, dis covers that its home population is inconvenienced by the scarcity and high pi-ice of food, it is a hold and, in many i senses, an adventurous policy to throw 1 its markets open to the world. It is necessary to be very sure that the sup of the growers of grain and the graziers of stock on the land within its own territories, or there must come a time when the classes engaged in agriculture and cattle breeding and feeding at home will feel the pressure of foreign coin petition and complain that their position has been sacrificed. If the country in which this experiment of free Tx-ade is tried happens to be of comparatively limited extent, aud the nation enjoys a practical monopoly or some two or three important industries, to which tho skill and strength of the people are mainly directed, the experiment will be pro portionally e...

DRAINAGE AND DISEASE [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 10 May 1879

Drainage and Disease. It is rather remarkable that iu three of the capital cities of Australia there should be simultaneous anxiety about the question of drainage and disease. That this is furnishing occasion for un easiness in Sydney will be no news to our readers, who can scarcely yet have forgotten the numerous cases of fever and tlie not inconsiderable proportion of deaths recently traced directly to the sewerage-tainted milk of one metropoli tan dairy. Even were their memories so short as to have permitted that warning to pass into oblivion, they have the actual present prevalence of typhoid in a portion of the metropolis as a re minder that they live subject to condi tions which involve preventable mor tality. From Brisbane we hear the same cry which must reach them from us. The drainage arrangements of that city are, like our own, not only defective but almost 11011-existent, and typhoid stalks from door to door. The Press is there seeking to arouse the authorities, inst as i...

LORD BEACONSFIELD AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 10 May 1879

LORD BEACON, SFIELD AT HOME. Visit Lord Beaconsfield at Hughenden (says Truth) and you find an amiable old gentleman, who converses with a languid interest about music and paiut ing, with some animation about turnips and cattle, whereof he is a connoisseur; and with no fire at all, but rather a demure composure, about politics and the spread of Catholicism in England. He is a good talker, and talks much, but in a somewhat loud, grating voice, which only grows tuneful when he warms. He likes flowers, perfumes, fruit; he drinks a great deal of black coffee ; he never smokes, and he dresses to perfection, knowing exactly what style of clothes best suits him. Into newspapers he scarcely ever dips ; and, oddly enough, he neither speaks French nor is suihcientJy acquainted with that language to enjoy its literature. Some times, when sitting alone, he rests his head on his brow and gazes into the fire, or out of the window upon fair Buckinghamshire scenery, by the half hour. His thoughts a...

PRINCE BISMARCK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 10 May 1879

PRINCE BISMARCK. The writer of the ' Anecdotal Photo graphs' says : — Bismarck can be spite ful in three languages besides his own. He speaks English coireetly, Russian fairly, and French ex cellently. Unlike Marshal Moltke, who, having had an English wife, has contracted a taste for British literature, ^ nnrl *1 nl i crl i tft in flir* linvpls ilf ATl'fiS Braddon and Mrs. Henry Wood, Bis marck prefers French novels, and the looser they are the better lie likes them. Feydau, Edmond de Goncourt, and Flaubert are liis favourite authors, and of late he has addicted himself to a steady course of Zola's realistic pro ductions. About three years ago it was my fortune to see Prince Bismarck, and to have a long hour's talk with . him at his house in the Wilhelin strasso, Berlin. He smoked during the whole interview, inviting me to do the same, and every now and then he poured himself out a glass of beer from a jug at his elbow. Beside the jug stood a pile of French novels in yellow covers, ...

A GAMBLING INCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 10 May 1879

A GAMBLING INCIDENT. A lady of rank in Paris died recently, iu tbe fashionable quarter of the Arc de Triomphe, of whom an interesting story is told. She was a famous card player, and was credited with knowing every game there was to know. When travelling in a foreign huni she met, one day in an hotel, a Russian lady with that passion for gambling said to be inherent in the Russian nation Anxious to play with the lady from Paris, she wrote requesting a few games. Her request was granted, and the ladies played all night, the Russian losing at every hand until her opponent had won from her more money than the mines in the Ural had produced for her revenues in twenty-five years. At last the Russian lady made a despairing effort to regain her fortune, but with out avail. Rising from the table, she told the French lady how she had lost more than she possessed, but that in her desire to pay a debt of honour she would instruct her steward to convey to her the title deeds of all the mines an...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 10 May 1879

South Australia. The Duvalli Sisters, the well-known ballet dancers, are giving the Adelaide public a taste of their quality. They advertised that they would dance the indecent Can Can, therefore the Young Men's Christian Association of Ade laide became alarmed, and headed by their president they waited on the Commissioner of Police, asking him to prevent the ' Can Can ' being danced, as advertised by the Duvalli Sisters. The commissioner stated the dance would be suppressed if it was at temped. On Tuesday the Duvalli sisters only gave a mild modification of the can-can dance. The other portions of the en tailment was very objectionable. There was a crowded attendance, the action of the Young Men's Christian Associa tion being a splendid adveriisement, causing many to go who would probably not have attended. A volunteer review is to be held oil the Queen's Firtliday. A valuable find has been made on the person of a man named Savage, an insolvent public in, confined in Adelaide gaol....

MR. GLADSTONE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 10 May 1879

MR. GLADSTONE. He is a tender father, a devoted hus band, a true and good friend. His disinterestedness about money matters is so great that he refused an augmenta tion of his salary whilst Prime Minister, and left office impoverished. He had to sell a goodly collection of china which he had amassed (for he is a connoisseur), nnrl snnn nftevwnvds bis librarv of books. which was bought back for him by Lord Wolverton. His readiness to succour all who appeal to his charity is only limited by his means, and he frequently returns from a country walk with his pockets cleaned out, thanks to his dis tributions of gold and silver among the sick or needy villagers. Some months ago he went out for a walk of about twelve miles, intending to return to Hawarden by train ; bnt in the evening he found that he had given away every thing, and had not money left to pay for his ticket, so he trudged home ou foot, arriving so late that his family had become uneasy. Mr. Gladstone does more than give mone...

THE CLOSE OF THIS SESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 10 May 1879

The Close of the Session'. It is surprising with what effrontery, year after, Ministers plead for hurrying the session to a close, because they pur pose to introduce at the next sittings some highly important measures on subjects that have been repeatedly urged on their attention, not only in, but outside the House. Sir Henry Parkes is a master of this kind of cajolery, and even now, when he is backed up bv a large majority in the Assembly, and need lie under 110 mis givings as to a cordial support on any liberal measure he might bring forward, he resorts to this mean subterfuge to close the session of Parliament. He knows as well as any one that the Opposition have it in their own hands to delay legislation, ' at the proper period of the year,' whenever they are so minded. Motions for adjournment are, of all ol hers, the readiest means of procrastination ; and as the rules of the House have no power to prevent any subject from being discussed, and at any length, under this form of ...

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. THE NEW LOAN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 10 May 1879

SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. The New Loan. There are two comparisons we could make which are satisfactory. It is a better loan than we ever made before, and it is a better loan than any of our neighbours have made recently, and in deed, so far as our recollection serves, I better than any British colony has ever made. Although our debentures have been up to par, it must be remembered that we have never floated a loan at that rate. The high price the stock reached has been very satisfactory to our pride, but the gain was not ours, it belonged to those who had had the good sense to lend to us. Our previous loan was a four per cent, one, floated at an average of £91 7s. 9d., and that was three years ago. This loan was dis posed of in two divisions, in 1875-6. The first portion, viz., a million, averaged . £90 1s. 2d. The second portion, viz., £901,500, averaged £92 17s. 3^il The charges were 12s. 9d., leaving a net receipt of £90 15s. The difference between that and £98 re presents the growth ...

An Italian professor has made some very agreeable medicinal researches, resulting in the discovery that vegetable perfumes exercise a positively healthful influence on the atmosphere, converting its oxvgeu into ozone, and thus increas ing its oxidizing influence. The essences found to develop the largest quantity of ozone are those of cherry, laurel, clover, lavender, mint, juniper, lemon, fennel, and bergauiot : those that give it iu smaller quantities are anise, nutmeg, and thyme. The flowers of the narcissus, hyacinthe, mignonette, heliotrope and lily of the valley develop ozone in closed vessels. Flowers desti tute of perfuma do not develop it in small quantities. Reasoning from those facts, the Professor recommends the cultivation of flowei-s in marshy dis tricts, and in places infested with animal emanations, on account of the powerful oxidizing influence of ozone. — Mining and SHcntific Press. Journalistic remuneration in America is not at all low. Charles Dana, the editor of...
