THE PEOPLE OF LAPLAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
THE PEOPLE OF LAPLAND. The Lapp is an inveterate smoker, and is quite a connoisseur in pipes. x His tobacco pouch is made of reindeer skin., and attached to it is a pipe cleaner, which is made of a bird's bill, and is as pliable as whalebone. The case in which the pipe cleaner is kept is formed from the sliankrbone of a wild swan. The drinkmg cups, platters, and dishes are made of the wood of the birch ; the spoons and forks are made of the; horns and bones of the, reindeer. Very pretty bracelets, fancy baskets, and other ornamental articles are made of the roots of the birch. Some of the Lapps do not roam about like their fellows, but have fixed places of residence on the sea coast or by the side of a fjord, where they earn an uncertain livelihood by fishing. The Norwegians of Finmarken hold them in great detestation, and have as little intercourse as possible with them. If a Lapp enter a Norseman's dwelling he apes great, humility, declines to . sit -upon a chair, but squats on th...

THE BALLOT IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
THE BALLOT IN ENGLAND. Few people who are not thoroughly conversant with English politics and the state of political parties in the old country, can realise in any proper degree the immense change that must result from the Reform Bill of 1867 in the composi tion of the next* British House of Commons, the character of future legislation, and the working of the leadins: institutions of England. Even among statesmen and politicians there is an immense difference of opinion as to the effect of that truly radical measure. Liberals are jubilant, and con fidently look forward to a host of reforms as necessarily following in the wake of a renovated Parliament. The Tories, on the other hand, prof ess to regard the change as likely to favor Conservatism, and assert that the body of the people, being Conservative, will be hostile to all those changes to which the Conservative party have ever offered their strenuous opposi tion. Church rates, the Irish Church, the purchase system in the army, t...
SUNDAY IN NEW YORK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
SUNDAY IN NEW YORK. Sunday is a terrible dull day within the boundaries of the city, but the dulness results from an application of teetotal rather thau of Sabbatarian principles. Tobacconists' shops are even more generally open than in London, and newspapers can be purchased at street stalls as freely on Sunday as during the rest of the wees ; but ail bars tor the sale of intoxi cating liquors are peremptorily closed through out the sacred day. The law by which this ex tensive operation is effected falls with especial severity on the keepers of lager-beer saloons, and is therefore horriby offensive to the Ger mans, who are the chief consumers of the beer and have not a particle of Sabbatarian feeling in their constitution. It likewise annoys the proprietors of the restaurants, who may supply their customers with any comestibles they please, but cannot vend them any beverage besides icewater and a few other non- ex- hilarating drinks. I give here a squib which I took down from the w...
"AN OMISSION SUPPLIED." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
'AN OMISSION SUPPLIED.' [From Melbourne Punch.] We are astonished'to find that no report of the Prince's proceedings either on Tuesday or Wednesday has appeared in either of our daily contemporaries. We hasten to supply the omission. Tuesday morning, 3.30 a.m. — Left the fancy ball evidently pleased at having been glared at like a wild beast before being poked up with a Ions nole bv those anxious to see him dance the Scotch reeL (N.B. It was tbe royal piper who accompanied H.R.H., and not an insane per former on a cracked, hurdygurdy.) H.8LH. eudeavors to light a cigar, which obstinately refused to be illumined. H.R.H says ' Blow it.' Lord Newry thinks it is a capital way to kindle fire. Yorke suggests that probably it may be one of Dr. Mueller's, manufactured front the eucalyptus which has been surreptitiously inserted in the royal cigar-case. Highly pro bable. If so, good j b it won't light. H.R.H. disguises himself as an aboriginal, and re-enters the ball-room. Finds several gent...
THE COMING STRUGGLE FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP OF EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
THE COMING STRUGGLE FOB, THE CHAMPIONSHIP OF EUROPE. fcoaoouificAaBD. 1 The. menacing aspect of affairs among the great continental powers of Europe gives cause for much anxiety as to the result of the great conflict that seems to be - Impending. As all the nations are prepared for war, Ihe probability is that the armies breathing defiance will never be disbanded till they have tried the great question at issue, and It is worth while to consider what the chances are in favor of the parties likely to be engaged in the contest. Whatever the ostensible pretense for war, the real question at issue will be — which shall maintain the oosi bion of the leading power in Europe? France during the reign of the present Emperor has again assumed, the ascendant. Ihe dark and mysterious autocrat sup ports a host outnumbering that with which the first Napoleon undertook to invade the vast dominions of the Czar. Prussia, augmented by the conquest of the German States with a force equal to bis own in...
THE ECHUNGA GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
TEDE ECHUNGA ^LDrFIELDS. Gold digging^ like copper mining, gene rally excite the colony by fits aadstatte. .At one time the yellow fever has ths_ complete mastery over us ; at another no intelligence -& important discoveries— no reasoning, persuasion, or evidenoe~-wiil induce capitalists to invest their money in a search for the precious inetal. 'We have had iwshes and. excitement — then failure and disappointment j and after that, long intervals during .which both miners and speculators shrug their shoul ders at the very name of gold. Before the Calif ornian discoveries we found gold in the Adelaide Mine, but people were not much interested in it, as we did not dream of diggings then, but valued a few tons of copper more than jnany ounces of gold. The first time we were at all agitated upon auriferous subjects was when Mr. Milner Stephen went through his playful performances in the hills about *6 mileB from Adelaide, evoking such indignation from the unfortunate prospectors...
EXTRAORDINARY DEER HUNT AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
EXTRAORDINARY DEER HUNT AT SEA. On Wednesday morning, about ten o'clock, a deer was observed running about the sands of Dunnet, within half a mile of Castlehill Harbor, and it was noticed that on reaching the sea the animal leaped in among the breakers, which were pretty heavy, and that after breast ing them he swam rapidly seawards. The boat of Jhe schooner Inchbroom, of Thurso, Captain Sinclair, was speedily manned by him, and by Mr. t.eorge Gunn, Cas'lehill, and two of the vessel's crew, both of whom rowed with a will, Mr. Gunn acting as steersman and Captain Sinclair as harpooner, standing in the boat's bow with a coil of rope to throw over the animal's horns. On approaching the stag he showed great symptoms of excitement, lashing the sea with his feet, and swimming backwards and forwards with great velocity. The first throw of the line missed the antlers, and as the animal suddenly turned towards the shot e, and was approaching the breakers, which would have instantly swamped t...
Sporting. THE PRINCIPLES OF BREEDING. FROM AN ARAB'S POINT OF VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
Sjarfenjj. THE PRINCIPLES OF BREEDING .FROM AN ARAB'S POINT OF VIEW. Avoiding the oft-debated question as to -whether the 'English thoroughbred can be im proved by a fresh, infusion of Arab blood or not, it may yet be of advantage to study the rules adopted through a long succession of ages by those who have produced the most perfect animal in the world, considering the uses to which he is applied. 'We Bay the most perfect, for no animal meets the requirements of his master so completely, -and with so few failures, as the pure Arab horse. He has vast strength in proportion to his size, large enough for bis rider, -can' live . and work constantly for days together almost without food or water, has indomitable courage with the greatest do cility, and is made of such good material that what we know so f auxiliary as a break down seldom or never happens under the most violent or prolonged exertion. When too young or too old, the Arab may be overcome by fatigue, and eo rendered unable to...

THE CELEBRATED JUMPING FROG. 'Well, thish-yer Smiley had rat-tamers, and chicken cocks, and to in- cats, and all them kind of things, till you couldn't rest, and you couldn't fetch nothing for him to bet on but he'd match -you. He ketched a frog one day, and took him home, and said he calk'lated to edercate him ; and so he never done nothing for three months but set in his back yard and learn thaffiogto jump. And you bet you he did learn him. too. He'd eive him a little ounch behind, and the next minute you'd see that frog whirling in the air like a doughnut — see him turn one summerset, or may be a couple if he got a good start, and come down flat footed and all right, like a cat. He got him up so in the matter of catching flies, and kept him in practice so constant, that he'd sail a fly every time as' far as he could see him.
