ENGLAND AND RUSSIA. London, May 4. On the House of Commons meeting to-day, Mr. Gladstone, replying to question, stated that inas much as the delimitation of the Afghan frontier would be proceeded with in London, it had been de cided to recall Sir Peter Lumsden and Colonel Stew art from Afghanistan. May 5. In the House of Commons, last night, Lord Ran dolph Churchill denounced the Government for their actipn in proposing to submit the Penjdeh af fair to arbitration. He characterised the proposal as a base and cowardly surrender of the position taken up by Great Britain, and oontended that the Government had thereby imperilled the safety of India. The members of the Tory party in the House of Commons are inoensed at the action of the Gov ernment.. The Liberals are doubtful as to the wisdom of the course adopted by the Government in proposing to proceed to arbitration.

HERAT. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 9 May 1885

HERAT, Herat lias perhaps been assailed and sacked more of toil than any other city iu the world, says the Daily jSTews. The «Herat of modem history is but the paltriest ruin of the "Avian" city—the Ariau me tropolis—of the olden time. There is no l'eason to doubt the statements of old liistoriaus that Herat contained one million and a-half of inhabitants, and that its architecture was the wonder and the pride of the Eastern world. One or two buildings which (in a ormnbling condition) exist since the time of Timour are still among the best specimens of Mo hammedan architecture. The ruins of Herat, like, the ruins of Delhi, cover the country for many miles around. There has perhaps been a slight improve ment in the state of Herat since its last conquest by the Afghans; but the only reason for the supposi tion is the slight increase of its population. Since the year ISIS up to 1S8S Herat was incessantly fought for by Afghans, by the Suddozye princes of Herat- itself, and by the Persia...

My fondness for marbles began very early, and wlicn I wag about seven years old led mo into a curious experience, which I am about to relate. Agrea rivalry for acquiring marbles had suddenly arisen at that time among the boys of the town, and to pos boss as many of the little round beauties as my eldest brother owned soon beeamo the desivo of .my heart and the height of my ambition. I had already obtained a largo number, when one day I overheard my oldest brother telling one of his schoolmates that ho had mado the important dis covery that, marbles could bo formed from coal tar, of which thoro was a largo quantity on a certain street in a distant part of tho town. Ho did not condescond to explain tho process of manufacture, but ho showed tho marbles ho had made black, round, and glossy. Tho sight inspired mo with ...

M. PASTEUR'S' LABORATORY. A BioaitAPiiY of M. Louis Pasteur, just completed by his son-in.law, gives the following description of the suiTomiclings of tho great French investigator at his daily work. All the'animals at his laboratory, from the little white mice hiding under a bundle of cotton wool to the dogs barking furiously from their iron kennels, are doomed to death. These inhabi tants of the place, which are marehcd out day after day to be subjected to operations or other experi ments, share the space with still more ghnsty objects. From all parts of France-hampers arrive containing fowls which have died of cholera or some other di sease. Here is an enormous basket bound with straw •, it contains the body of a pig which has died of fever. A fragment of the lung, forwarded in a tin, is from a cow which died of pneumonia. Other goods are still more precious. Since Pasteur two 3*ears ago went to Pauiliac to wait the arrival of a boat which brought yellow fever patients, he receiv...

BURRAWANG. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 9 May 1885

BURRAWANG. Buhrawang presented a very lively scene last Satur day afternoon. Several sales vrero to take place, but the great attraction was Mr. John Somerville's farm of 100 acres, situated near tho Wealeyan Church, Wild's Meadow. It is good land and well situated, I and attracted a large number of buyers, some of whom were extremely anxious to secure it. Mr. D. | L. Dymock wielded the hammer in a very eilicient manner. The terms were 25 per cent, deposit, and the balance to be paid in four years, bearing interest at 6 per cent. The bidding was very spirited. It 1 tftarted at £10 an acre and went up with great rapidity in bids of £50, that being equal to 10s. per acre. As the sale went on, the bids became smaller ; but £12 10s. advance was the lowest bid of tho day. '•Several persons present joined in the bidding until the price reached £22 per acre, when it became a sort of duel between Mr. Robert Graham, of Kanga loon, and Mr. Paul Moore, of "Wild's Meadow. It was subsequently kn...

"OUTCAST RUSSIA." [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 9 May 1885

"OUTCAST RUSSIA" Pjuxoe Kuaptokine, in an articlc contributed to the Nineteenth Century, gives u graphic description of the miseries and suffering of exiles to the mines of Siberia. During the past 10 years no less than 105,000 human heipgs have been transported to Siberia. Some of these are, of course, criminals of the blackest dye, capital punishment having been abolished in Russia. Bub a very large proportion are political exiles, and pcop'e who in other coun tries would be simply condemned to a fine of a few shillings. Thus thousands upon thousands arc sent on a cliargo of "vagrancy," which mostly means going to a neighbouring province without a passport; in other words, a man, whose wife and children may bo starving, goes in search of work, and not having the necessary five or ten roubles to pay for a passport he is banished to Siberia as a political malcontent. A convict never knows until ho reaches Siberia what sort of life is in store for him. The miners arc supposed to bo t...

MR. HORDERN'S OFFER FOR A PARK. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BOWRAL FREE PRESS, [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 9 May 1885

MR. HORDERN'S OFFER FOR A PARK. TO THE EDITOR OP THE BOWKAL FREE PRESS, Sir,—I attended the three meetings held in Bowral ' to consider the offer of ten acres of land for a park by Mr. S. Hordern; and I must say that I really cannot understand the thing at all. Mr. Hordern, first of all, asks us to accept of ten acres of land for a park, with the condition that we keep it fenced. This generous offer and condition-were accepted by the people of Bowral at a properly-called public meet ing. Then Mr. Hordern writes to say that he is told the Bowral Free Press says that the people of Bow ral have rejected his offer in favour of another piece of land; and so he withdraws the surveyors who •were marking it out, and tells the people they will have to re-employ them if they are wanted ! Be it understood, that in the letter conveying this infor mation, Mr. Hordern acknowledges our acceptance of his offer. This seems very strange, and the second public meeting was naturally puzzled about it, a...

THE LATE MR. B.O. HOLTERMANN, M.L.A. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 9 May 1885

•Vmhy many old colonists, especially thoso connected with'the mining interests of tho colony, will hear with much regret of the death of Mr. Bernard Otto Holtermann, ono of the representatives of St. Leonard's in the Parliament of New South Wales, at the comparative^7 early ago of forty-eight years. Mr. Holtermaun was a native of Germany, and emigrated to New South Wales about the time of tho gold fever, some thirty years ago. He pursued the occupa tion of gold-miner for some time, with vary ing success, in different parts of the western districts of the colony. At last, having taken up claims at Hill End, in conjunction with Mr. Beyers, lie stuck to the claims with unflagging perseverance for many years—often not making " tucker," and again sometimes getting good prospects— until in June, 1871, he discovered and "un earthod the largest mass of gold that has over been discovered in the Australian colo .nies, and which was worth some £12,000. From 'this;'time Mr. Holtermann's fortune...

Ethel and Joan ; OR, True Love's Crown. CHAPTER III. A week later Arthur Montague makes his •way one afternoon to a bouse in Queen's garden's, where his sister Lady Bresford, is staying for the winter months with her chil dren. For though she is ultra-aristrocratic, and considers Brighton vulgar and full of City people at this time of the year, yet it is con veniently near town. "And as Arthur was bent upon coming here after that girl of Lady Carr's," she tells a friend of hers, " I thought it would he less dull than going abroad; besides, my husbands absence precludes that." Lord Bresford is at the present time with his regiment in Africa, whilst his weak, frivolous little wife spends her time and his money in what she calls " so ciety." She is fond of her brother, though a little afraid of him, and decidely averse to his marrying Ethel Carr, or any other woman for that matter. She looks upon Arthur, who has attained the age of forty,as a confirmed bachelor, and i her two pretty li...

THE COQUETTE'S TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 9 May 1885

THE COQUETTE'S TRAGEDY. I had a lover once—a youth I A gallant youth, with forehead fair, And dark eyes clear as wells of truth, And clustering curls of silken hair. He loved me fond as love could be. I'd say him neither yea nor nay. Whene'er he told his love to mej I lightly laughed it all away* Another suitor then I met— A man unlovely, bent, and old ; His grey head wore a coronet— His withered hands were full of gold* When my young lover to me came, The eve before my wedding-day, And called for mercy in love's name, I lightly laughed his prayers away. In gleam of pearls, and silken sheen, In mist of lace, I passed in pride, The rows of staring folks between, Who came to see the old man's bridei Vet though I won a wealthy prize, A weight upon my bosom lay; The memory of pleading eyes, I could not lightly laugh away< 'The silver-throated wedding-bell, The deep-toned organ's swell alid surge— Why sounded one so like a knell, And one so like a funeral dirge ? I shivered, a...

A WOMAN'S LOVE LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 9 May 1885

A WOMAN'S LOVE LETTERS, There is not much variety in love-letter?, For the most part they appear hopelessly silly to'all except those concerned in their production. " My first love letters," says Lady Beatty, " were written when I was ten years old, and was inspired by a page boy in my father's service, whose buttons made an indelible impression on my already suscep tible heart. The page was a victim to the obarms of a housemaid fifteen years his senior, and spurned my advances. This re sulted in the heartrending epistles above mentioned, . which were intercepted, how ever, while the unlucky writer was rewarded by being sent to bed for spoiling the contents of a new desk. Since that time—a period of nearly fifteen years—I have, if not written, received quantities of love-letters in- many languages, from people of all ages and nationalities, and have not lost my interest in them. As a study they aro amusing, nofe to say instructive. As letters they are flat tering to one's vanity, wh...

SEQUEL TO AS ELOPBMEKT. Tjtk Birmingham correspondent of the Did It/ Tcltyrayh savs:—" An extraordinary scene was witnessed on the.16th of March at the ISaraoon's Head, Shipley, about sis miles from Birmingham, on the Stratford road. On Saturday week a fashionably-dressed young man eloped with the wife of a Bir mingham tradesman. The pair drove to Shiploy, where they took rooms at the Saracen's Head. The husband had, how ever, boon able to trace the runaways, aud he appeared at the hotel accompanied by four stalwart friends. The man whom they sought had left tho hotel to call on a friend who resides further up tho village and who was going to drive them into Birmingham in his gig, so that the husband's origi nal scheme to surprise his wife and her lover together was frustrated. The hustund and his party secreted themselves behind a wagonload of hay close to the hotel, and soon had the satisfaction of seciug their victim drive up with his friend.
