DEATH OF PROFESSOR CLIFFORD. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

DEATH OF PROFESSOR CLIFFORD. The Spectator notices the death in Madeira, from consumption, at the veiy early age of 34, of Professor W. K. Clifford, a great mathematician, and a brilliant though painfully drastic writer on religious and speculative matters. Professor Clifford to some extent, no doubt, confounded courage with com bativeness, and often said things which « ere as violent as tliey were absurd, — as when, for instance, he said that within a few years the existence of God would be as completely disproved as the existence of any planet as large as the Earth between Mercury and the Sun, or something very nearly to that effect. As a metaphysical writer on mathematical subjects, he was not al ways either clear or skilful ; but he had great wit, and also great cordiality and kindness of nature, beneath the brusquerie of his strange aud to us quite unintelligible passion for striking at religious belief. No doubt he would have softened as he grew older. To some extent, his viol...

The case of Hanley Bennett, M.L.A., against Alderman Cohen, of Taro worth, was heard on Tuesday, and dismissed, the Bench holding that tliey had no means to decide whether Mr. Cohen was an alderman or not, he having been elected to represent the whole borough, and tlie succeeding aldermen having been elected for wards. Mr. Cohen was defended by Messrs. Levien and Tribe. Mr. Bennett conducted his own case, and made a great mess of it. The court was crowded, and there was great interest taken in the proceedings.

THE POET LAUREATE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

THE POET LAUREATE. A writer in Truth, in an article on Mr. Tennyson, sayB: — 'The curious may be interested to learn that the Laureate is something of a bon vivant, as indeed a bard should bp. Perhaps it would be more correct to say that he Hike Macaulav) is an excellent caterer for others, though now comparatively indifferent to these things himself. The reader who will taste the Laureate's wine will be fortunate indeed. I am not referring to the official ' sack ' so much as to some marvellous Amontil lado, the price of which I am really afraid to state to an unbelieving gene ration. Probably no such princely gift was ever made, since Lord Nelson re ceived (in 1800) a dozen bottles of the vintage of 1625. In literature Mr. Tennyson's tastes are far more correct than those of many famous poets. He sincerely loves the great masters, Shak speare, Milton, Scott. Among Greek poets, one gathers that Homer is his favourite ; among Roman, Lucretius. For his poem on the latter in ' Mac mil ...

According to the French Census of 1876, the foreigners resident in France numbered 810,700, of whom 30,000 were English. It is curious to note the occupations of the French people, of whom 18,968,000, or 53 per cent., are engaged in agriculture ; 9,274,000, or 26 per cent., in manufacturing aud similar industries ; 3,837,000, or 14 per cent, in trade ; and 1,231,000, or 4 per cent, in liberal professions. Of the agricultural population, 10,620,000 cul tivated their own property, 5,708,000 were farmers, and 2,639,000 laboureis and gardeners. Professor W. H. Flower, Conser vator of the Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons, states that the mixture of alcohol and water known as spirits of wine seems capable of pre serving animal substances for an in definite length of time. Specimens so preserved in 1717, and bought by Peter the Great from the celebrated Dutch anatomist Ruysch, still exist in a perfect state ; and in the museum under Professor Flower's charge there were thousands of ...

QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

Queensland. The Darling Downs Gazette published on the 5th May the first number of the Queensland Agricultural and Family Herald. It is rumoured that the Hons. W. Welsh, Murray, Prior, and another member of the Council, are extremely dissatisfied with the appointment of the Hon. J. P. Bell as President of the Council, and that they intend to form a clique to harrass the new leader of the Government in that Chamber. The government resident at Port Darwin has had to employ 300 Chinese on relief works, owing to the great des titution which is prevailing amongst them.

ANOTHER ALLEGED HISTORICAL FALLACY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

ANOTHER ALLEGED HISTO RICAL FALLACY. The execution of Marshal Nev, on the 7 th of December, 1815, is, it seems, says the Echo, an historical myth. He was not really shot in the garden of the Luxembourg on that day, but only apparently, and subsequently escaped to America, where he kept a school for many years, was much beloved and respected by his pupils, and finally died on the 14tli October, 7846, a peaceful death at Lowan, North Carolina, where he was buried in a graveyard near a church called ' Third Creek Meeting House.' Such at least is the belief of many persons in North Carolina ; and a reporter of the New York Herald, who lately spent a week iu that State, collccting facts bearing upon the sub ject, and interviewing aged persons, formerly pupils of the Marshal, gives some interesting particulars respecting the later years of the deceased hero. It seems that he was known in North Carolina as Peter Stuart Ney. He was au excellent teacher and a splendid mathematician. As a rul...
