A., waited upon the Minister for Works on Thursday morn ing to urge the claims of Jerilderie W,11U1UIUW»UII 'IB metropolis. The deputation was ap pointed at a public meeting, and sent to Sydney in order to represent to the Minister the difficulties experienced by the people:of Jerilderie and tlie districts surrounding it in getting their produce to a market, and to see that, when the Government came to a decision in regard to railway extension in the south west, the claims of Jerilderie were not overlooked.

EXERCISE AND DIGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

EXERCISE AND DIGESTION. When exercise is properly conducted, the effect on the digestive system is very marked. The appetite is increased, and more food is taken in order to supply the force necessary for the maintenance of the mechanical force. This increase of appetite is especially noted when the pveivisp io taken in n»Pii ah- Wl1011 exercise is undertaken however without due preparation, or the bodily powers are exhausted by fatigue, the power of being able to take food is diminished. This condition, if the exercise is con tinued and the power of taking food remains impaired, is one of considerable ?danger, and the health is often greatly affected, the force of the heart being much reduced. It is of great import ance, moreover, when great fatigue has been undergone, to see that the bodily powers are thoroughly recruited by rest before an attempt is made to take food, otherwise there will be no inclination to take it, and if forced down it will not digest An hour's rest with a cu...

INFLUENCE OF THE EUCALYPTUS ON TYPHOID FEVER. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

INFLUENCE OF THE EUCA LYPTUS ON TYPHOID FEVER. The following letter, written by Dr. Buttner, appears in the Melbourne Argus: 'Inanumberof the Medicinische Woclienschrift of Berlin (November, 1878), au article appeared which has particular signifiance for Australia also. Professor Dr. Mosler, of the University of Greifswald, and Dr. Goeze, of the Botanic Garden of the same town, have commenced to use their eucalyptus plants for deodorizing the sick wards of the hospital, and seemingly these trials have been attended with very satis factory results. Dr. Goeze's attention was, in the first instance, directed to the hygienic properties of our eucalypti by the introduction of these trees into Portugal while he was Inspector of the Botanic Gardens, first at Coimbra, and subsequently at Lisbon, and he was greatly aided in this introduction by Baron von Mueller at the time. After his return to his native country he followed up his former experiments, but as the climate of Middle Europe does...

NATIONAL INSURANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

NATIONAL INSURANCE. The Rev. W. Lewery Blackley's pro posal for ' National Insurance, a cheap, practical, and popular means of abolish ing poor rates,' is a bolder and more trenchant scheme than even Mr. j Edwards's suggestion to substitute for il._ ? 1.°:. ? T5Vo.,„li tut; UUII1]JUIBUIJ- JJUUL low WIO organized charity system. ' In the latter caso the provident would still have to pay for the failures of those who through vice, misfortune, or recklessness had made no provision for the rainy day which comes to so many of us ; but in Mr. Blackley's scheme the improvident would be forced to pay for their own insurance against fate. In these days we know that tlie Utopia of to-day may prove the Terra Cognita of to-morrow. One's breath is rather taken away by the idea of forming a gigantic Friendly Society, in which Government should not only give that guarantee for solvency so much needed for the provident poor, but should also compel all the male population during their non-age to put...

THE VICTORIAN LIBERAL [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

THE VICTORIAN LIBERAL. The Ballarat Star finds out a few of the blunders committed by Berry and Co. in Victoria : — The ' liberals' asserted that the Assembly could authorise the expendi ture of money on its sole vote, and sent home a memorandum to that effect. They were declared to be all wrong by the British law-officers, and by states men iu the House of Lords. They said that a Governor had no right to make suggestions to his advisers, but only to receive their advice. Ministers had formally to admit that they were wrong, and Sir Michael Hicks-Beacli expresses pleasure at this acknowledgment. They said that a Governor was bound to take his law from his law-officers. The Colonial Office says that the Go vernor is personally responsible for any illegal act he may sanction, and that he must find out what is legal and what illegal. They said that a Governor must always accept the advice of his Minis ters. The Colonial Office says that a Governor must not do 'improper things because h...

THE LAND QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

The Land Question. Without caref ulinquiry it is impossible for any one to imagine how large a pro portion of the population of this colon}' is directly dependent upon Government employment, or connected with the Government by contract. The total ?niirnhpr nf famili'im nf nvpsonf within our vast territory may be esti mated at 140,000. For the government of those families Parliament is asked to spend more than six million pounds sterling during the current year, which is nearly equal to a pound per week for every family in the land. It is true that a large part of this expenditure is on account of great public works such as will last perhaps for a century, and such as all new communities must con struct if they mean to advance on the path of civilisation and progress. Still it is not well for any community to be pecuniarily dependent upon its Govern ment to so large an extent as in this colony. Every Civil servant, every Government employe, the whole army of contractors and their wor...

AFRAID OF BEING KISSED. A man was walking along one road aud a woman along another. The roads finally united, and the man and woman reaching tlie junction at the same time, walked on there together. The man was carrying a large iron kettle on his back ; in one hand he held by the legs a live chicken, in the uuuer a cane , ami lie was leaumg a goat. Just as they were coming to a 'deep dark ravine, the woman - said to the man : — ' I am afraid to go through that ravine with you ; it is a lonely place, aud you might overpower me and kiss me by force.' ' If you are afraid of that,'' said the man, 'you shouldn't have walked with me at all. How can I possibly overpower you and ;kiss you by force when I have this great iron kettle on my back, a cane in one hand, and a live chicken in the other, and am leading this goat 1 I might as well be' -tied. hand and foot.'

The Treeves Forgeries. The evidence in the case of the City Bank against Sir George Wigram Alien, lately tried before Mr. Justice Faucett and a jury of four in the Banco Court, disclosed a peculiar state of facts. In December, 1872, the Phcenix Building and Investment Society was about to be wound up, and the capital of the im.'nlir rl.'of ..iKufn/l uirinnrr t.llfi KllRI'fi holdcrs. To raise the necessary funds to meet the cheques of the directors, a promissory note for .£4950, purporting to be signed by the directors, was dis counted by the secretary, J. R. Troeve, at the City Bank, where the society bad their account, and the proceeds carried to the credit of tlie society. Cheques drawn against that sum by the de fendant and another director were ail honoured, and the society, as it were, died, its object having been effected. Some three years afterwards it came to the knowledge of the defendant and the other director that the City Bank held a promissory note signed by them for a ...

THE KELLY SCARE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

THE KELLY SCARE. The Kelly scare has reached another phase (says the Melbourne Telegraph), and as usual the police have been sent on another wild-goose chase. It ap pears that on Wednesday tne /tn inst. a schoolmaster, residing in the North Eastern district, near the Dandenong Ranges, named Wooster, or Wolaston, reported to the Dandenong police that he had been apprised by a seiector, named Millard, living in the vicinity, that he had been stuck-up by four or five mounted men, who had demanded food. One of the men then opened his coat, and, it is alleged, showed three revolvers iu his belt. The quintet then sat in Milliard's hut, and ate a hearty supper. One of the fellows is reported to have mentioned a horse, branded G.P. or J.P., which he admitted that he had stolen from Mr. Hutton, of Clear Creek, near Wangaratta, The same man is also reported by Mrs. Milliard to have mentioned his mother and sisters. The impression left upon Milliard 8 mind was that his uuwelcome visitors were ...

HACKNEY-CARRIAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

HACKNEY-CARRIAGES. The introduction of coaches into Eng land is generally ascribed to a Dutch man named William Boonen, who became Queen Elizabeth's coachman in the year 1564. Hackney-carraiges however did not come into use until the beginning of the seventeenth century, the first attempt to organise a regular service of these vehicles being made in 1605 by a Captain Bailey of the merchant service. In that year he started four hackney-carriages, and placed them for hire at the Maypole in the Strand, at the same time fixing the rates to be charged for the various journeys. From their first establish ment hackney-carriages have been sub ject to Government control ; and it is worthy of note that on several occasions it has been thought necessary to limit their number. In 1636, when there were only twenty of them, an order of the Star Chamber was issued '? to restrain the multitude and pro miscuous use of coaches about London and Westminster,' on account of the hindrance they caused to ...

WATER IN THE BUSH OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

WATER IN THE BUSH OF AUSTRALIA. It is over forty years since I first arrived in Adelaide, and at once Bturted for the bush, which at that time was really in a savage state of nature, and wild enough to satisfy the most ardent lover of that commodity. There were few roads, and fewer huts, and these at long distances apart, for the colonists at that time were congregated in the town, buying aud selling town aud suburban lots and building houses, so that the country, except at short distances from the town, was a regular terra incognita, and any one who penetrated into the bush was looked upon as very venture some, and likely to be destroyed by blacks, snakes, or wild animals. It is unnecessary to state now, in these days of railroads, steamboats, Cobb's coaches, and other abundant means of transit, that there was not any real danger, although we heard from time to time that the blacks were troublesome ; still, in the part of the country I travelled — that is, from Adelaide as far as t...

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. WHAT GOVERNMENT MIGHT PRINT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. What Government might Prist. It is to ;be hoped that the discussion we'' have been having On the class of' booKB.' the. Government ought not to print will not lead to its altogether eschewing the task of printing-books which have been written by private ?which can be very well printed and published by business firms, tliere is another class which in our present stage of progress such firms are not likely to undertake. The principle which should guide the Government in matters of this kind is a sufficiently plain one. During the debate in the Assembly on Friday last, it was inti mated that Government had turned out books for other people, aud therefore tliat there was nothing wrong in its turning out a book for Mr. Heaton. Reference was also made to Mr. Fitz gerald's book on ' Australian Orchids,' as furnishing a parallel case to the one commented on. The two cases are, however, as we understand the matter, totally different Mr. Fitzgerald's book, we believe, was...

THE HATFIELD BUSHRANGERS COMMUTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

The Hatfield Bushrangers Commu tation. It was stated in Saturday's issue that the Executive Counil, in the exercise of its discretion, had, but not unsolicited, remitted the capital sentence passed upon the Hatfield bushrangers, to im prisonment for various periods, with hard labour. With the recollection fresh in our minds of the severe ternn in which the judge at the trial de nounced the crime against society, of which they had been convicted, and the little hope his Honour held out to them of an extenuation of the penalty ; with the knowledge, too, of what has been occurring in this and the neighbouring colony during the past six months, some at least must have been disappointed at finding that in this instance tliere should have been anything like what is usually styled tempering justice with mercy, which, by the way, often means neither mercy to the offender nor justice to the offended. Had they not been over taken in the carrying out of their wicked resolves, other localities ...

THE LAND BILL AND THE POLICY OF SURRENDER. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

The Land Bill axd the Policy of Surrender. It ; is worth while to compare the Land Bill, as it now stands, with the measure for proposing which the last Ministry was ejected from office. Mr. Fitzpatrick, in some wild talk at Yass, proposed to remit interest on the balances of future selections — a pro posal that would have had no direct personal interest for free selectors in that electorate, unless tliey expected iiym nni i jIq frn liavo a va I application. Mr. Fitzpatrick always denied that he had any intention what ever to alter the existing bargain with the State, and only 'intended the prin- 1 ciple to apply in the future. But it ! was generally seen that this distinction, though it might be preserved in Mr. Fitzpatrick's mind, would easily become blurred in the popular imagination, and that if interest might be surrendered for the future, it would only be a question of time as to when it should be 'sur rendered in the past ; and the moment surrendering interest for past select...
