W. MORT AND CO'S WOOL REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 23 October 1875
W. MORT AND CO'S WOOL REPORT. The turn the Wool market has taken has disap pointed everyone, as the general opinion before the commencement of the series, was that if prices were not absolutely maintained at their late level, the fall would be only trilling. No one, therefore, was prepared for the very marked decline which took place ; a decline extending to all sorts and descriptions, but specially altecting Sydnejr washed and scoured wools, which were already relatively cheap during the June series. These we should call as a rule Hd. to 2d. per lb. cheaper, and in some cases considerably more, while greasy fleeces have not suffered relatively to the same extent. There is no doubt that the hopeful anticipations were to some extent based on the cheapness of money; a fact apparently' in favour of high prices, as enabling the manufacturer to place himself in funds on easy terms, but, the truth is that cheap money means bad trade, and bad trade means cheap wool. A careful retrospect of...
A LADY'S SWIMMING FEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 30 October 1875
A LADY'S SWIMMING FEAT. Another great feat in the art of natation was accomplished on the 1st September, when Miss Agnes Alice Beckwith swam from London Bridge to the Royal Hospital at Greenwich in little more than an hour. The heroine was born on the 14th August, 1861, so that she lias but very recently celebrated her fourteenth birthday ; nevertheless, she has for years given illustrations of ornamental swimming at most of our watering places and inland towns where there are baths suitable for such a purpose. Her teat, consider ing her youth, and the difficulties by which she was surrounded, was perfectly marvellous, and elicited, as it deserved unbounded applause from thousands who witnessed the finish. ' Following so closely after the gallant act of captain Webb, the announcement that a young lady — a mere child, in fact — intended to show that pluck and an ability to endure immersion were not alto gether confined to the male sex created immense excitement, and all along the cou...
A FRENCH ADVENTURESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 30 October 1875
- ' A* FBENCH ADVENTOEESS. )The Paris correspondent of the Daily News states that a lady, who once cut a very .great tigurein Parisian society, and whose salon about the time of the Treaty, of Paris -was the constant rendezvous of many diplomatists, has had a long »nd brilliant career ignominiously cut short by the Assize Court of Pau, which has found her guilty of the mean crime of robbing her dying cook, and or the legally more serious one oi forging her signature after her death. This adventuress was known at various times as Countess de Matignon, CounteBB de Roux - de Coincy, Countess de Kersabiec, and Baroness de Saint Martin. . In reality she was never entitled to bear any title. She -was by birth a Belgian, named^Majy Louise Forgeur, and the widow of an obscure person named Belgoffie. During the Empire she was . several times convicted of swindling, but owing to mysterious protection she never underwent the sentences pronounced against her. With the empire her star paled, she...

ADVICE WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 30 October 1875
ADVICE WANTED. It was the second time he had accompanied the young lady home from one of those little social parties which are got up to bring fond hearts a step nearer to each other. When they reached the gate she asked him if he wouldn't come in. He said lie would, and he followed her into the house. ' It was a calm, still night,' and the hour was so late that he had no fear of seeing the old folks. Sarah took his hat, told him to sit down, and then left the room to take off her came in, smiled sweetly, and, dropping down beside the young man, she said : — ' I always did say that if a poor but respectable young man fell in love with Sarah, he should have my consent. Some mothers would sacrifice their daughters' happiness for riches ; but I am hot one of that class.' The young man gave a start of alarm. He didn't know whether he liked Sarah or not, and he hadn't dreamed of such a thing as marriage. ' She has acknowledged to me that she loves you,' continued the mother; 'and whateve...

KING-LICKING IN THE PACIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 30 October 1875
EESG-jSICEWGINTHE PACIFIC. A .writer in the Queenslunder, speaking of the South Seas, Bays :— By the way, touching the American influence in those same islands, a story occurs to us which may eerve to illustrate the manner in which the free and ; independent citiEens of the great Re public assert their freedom and awe the simple, savage.'; In the South Seas, before King Kame hameha- came to; the throne-ihere reigned a potentate of much joviality. He liked white men and adored Navy rum. One day the barque . iioiumDia, vjapiain nyDosu, commanaer, put in for water. The potentate made off to the vessel, and was received with due ceremony. The rum was produced, and the utmost harmony reigned. For three weeks did this friendship last, until the king began to show symptoms of failing powers. On the last night of the Columbia's stay the savage warrior requested, through the medium of the interpreter, who in ordinary life was a har pdoner, to be allowed to. give his white friends some proof ...
