A ROMANTIC STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 10 May 1879

A ROMANTIC STORY. All newspaper readers will be familiar with the Crawford Henry cases, tried some time ago in the Melbourne Su preme Court Henry, the cormorant money-lender, had persecuted the widow out of house and home by his usurious exactions : and. not content with t.li-.if went so far as to tamper with a jury which was to finally close the series of actions. For this lie and an accomplice were indicted for embracery and he was imprisoned for four years in Pentridge, and fined .£500. Mrs. Crawford, who was, in 1871 and 1ST 2, a boarding house-keeper in View-street, Sandhurst, it may be supposed was, after all these law actions, reduced to penury. There fore, to support herself and children, she was compelled to take, it is said, the position of housekeeper in a large hotel ill Deniliquin. Whilst there en gaged, she became acquainted with the wealthy squatter Peter Tyson, a man of peculiar style and tastes, and reputed to be worth three millions in land and money. A few months ...

M. GAMBETTA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 10 May 1879

M. GAMBETTA. The grave dignity with which the new President . of the Legislative Chamber holds sway among the discordant ele ments submitted to the ringing of his official bell is still exciting surprised commentaries on the part of the Parisians who, knowing bis impassion ate and impulsive temperament, and the chronic irrepressibility of his habitual deportment as a Deputy, have not been without apprehensions as to the manner in which he would probably discharge the duties of his present post. The new President has, moreover, shown himself even more i igid in the applica tion of Parliamentary rules to the members on the Left than to the Right. The recent defeat of the Extreme Left in the vote on the Amnesty lias been still further embittered, for the losing fraction of the Chamber by the truly Draconian severity with which he called his angry and unruly friends to order, in the violent episodes that marked the progress of the sittings ; the Extreme Right, however, being equally ang...

ON WEDDING RINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 10 May 1879

ON WEDDING RINGS. From very early ages a peculiar charm appears to have been connected with the ring. Without beginning or end, it has long been regarded as an emblem of eternity, and also of the strength and perpetuity of affection. The fourth finger of the left hand has long been considered sacred, and hence has been consecrated to wear the wedding ring. The Greeks and Romans were so fully couvinced of the intrinsic value attached to this finger, that it was called the medical or healing finger. Their various medicinal preparations wer-3 stirred with it in place of a spoon, it being supposed that should auy noxious ingredient be included in the cup, warning of the fact would immediately be given by a palpi tation of the heart In some remote country places in England this supersti tion is still firmly believed in. The other fingers are thought to possess a certain power of evil, but a wound or sore stroked by the wedding finger is expected by them in a short time to disappear ; and...

THE ACCIDENT AT THE COMPANY'S BRIDGE. ( To t/ie Editor of the (C. If. Express ) Sir, — As a lover of justice, I wish to con tradict a statement made by you in your last issue, having reference to the late accideut that occurred to a Mr. Gray. It would appear by the paragraph containing the statement that the driver of the ' Buss' was to blame, and that he was also breaking tbe Municipal bye-law of driving over the bridge, whereas tbe reverse is tbe truth, for myself, witn eigne or.ner passengers, can icsiny mat tbe horses attached to the ' Buss' were only proceeding at a fast walking pace, and Mr. Gray was riding down the incline ou tiie north side of the bridge at a fast canter, aud there being two foot passengers ou tbe bridge on the opposite side to which Mr. Gray was coming, the driver of tbe ' Buss' kept near the centre of tbe bridge to avoid them, and when the ' Buss' was nearly passed Mr. Gray's horse swerved round, and his hind quarter struck the hind wheel of the ' Buss' an...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 10 May 1879

If we were to judge by the existing general appearance of apathy in all that concerns the liorough of Wagga, we should be indulging in a hazardous speculation if we supposed tlie ratepayers possessed of decided convictions as to auy matter of Municipal government. It bas, nevertheless, been tolerably patent dominant opinion aliout the new bridge over the lagoon is that the extreme of municipal absurdity liad been reached in the Council's decision to build so expensive a structure in sucli a little used locality. Wr.ipjjed up in tliis way, as a good many are, in the feeling of security, that the worst had been done in the matter, they must as suredly be painfully disillusionised by the ? proceedings which took place iu the Council Chaml.er 011 Thursday last. The Uorough Surveyor, it appears, had refused to give the contractors for the work a certifi cate for a certain amount of money demanded liy them, and called upon for a report upon the subject, assigned as a reason for the re fus...
