THE DISTRESS IN THE COTTON DISTRICTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 24 October 1862
THE DISTRESS IN TI?E COTTON DISTRICTS. In the manufacturing districts in the north, after a twelvemonth of dimculty and distress, matters are, in every respect, worse than ever. Under this beau tiful weather, when even a Lancashire operative nutst have a few more chances of irregular employment, there were 7000 more ' paupers' last week than the .week before. Indeed, there never was a more gloomy pro.spuct. Work dinminishes; pauperism increases week by week; the unmanageable matss of unsettled po.ir is becoming enormouse the patience and temper of the sutibrers are giving way; the mischievous men who rise up in such emergencies to aggravate and to mislead are becoming more prominent; savings are cmnsumed, charity cooled, rates pushed to tihe utmost; winter is not distant, and there really seems not a clhance of a timely supply of cotton from any source whatever. Everybody can understand what it is for a quarter of the entire population of a town to bh re ceiving relief from a charit...

THE SKYLARK AND THE OVENS DIGGERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 24 October 1862
THE SKYLARK AND TIIE OVENS, DIGGERS,. The following will remind some of our readers of a stupid made-up story published in an English paper some years ago in reference to the first primrose sn. ported here. There is, perhaps, however, at least some truth in this 'yarn:' Stories as well as poems concerning the skylark aboundl but one of the best, both for interest and as showing the constant love of Englislhmen for. this ,truly English bird, came to my knowledge a few months ago. As you are doubtless aware, there is no such a thing as a song-bird natural to Australia; theta are birds who clhtter, birds who shrielk, but no bird that sings. Well, there was a young man who went out from England as a gold-digger, and was lucky enough to make some money, and prudent enough to take care of it. Ioe opened a ' store' (a sort of rough shop, where overything, from candles to collins, is sold), at a place called the 'Ovens,' ia cele brated gold-field about two hundred miles from Meol bourne.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 24rm, 1862. Tnz following amusing paragraph appears in the Richmond local paper; and as it afforded that journal a text for an article, our readers will no doubt be interested in a few supplementary remarks upon it from ourselves: "In a small church ata little village near Brigh ton, (England) where the congregation could not af9rd to pay an organist, they recently bought a self-acting organ, a compact instrument, wail suited to the purpose, and constructed to play forty differ ent tunes. The sexton had instructions how to set it agoing and how to stop it, but, unfortunately, he forgot the latter portion of his business, and after singing the first four verses of a hymn before the sermon, the organ could not be stopped, and it con tinued playing two verses morel then, just as the clergyman completed the words, "Let us pray," the organ clicked and started a fresh tune. The minis ter sat it out patiently, and then renewed his in troductory words, "Lot us pray," when cl...

A ;short time ago three very nkke yew trees were broken down. I have also noticed that the flowers have been pluckedt and one very iloe rose-tree, from which the branches had tweeou t,. has since disappeared. These, which may seeml to he trivial matters to others, are far dift?,ent to me, since the Coaneil has been to so Inuch t1rntlbi and expense to lay out these gardlens.
