SKETCHER. WAR WITH BIG GUNS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 April 1889

SKETCH ER. WAR WITH BIG GUNS, Did you over see a battery take position? It hasu t the thrill of a cavalry charg'e, nor the grimncss of a line of bayonets moving alowly and determinedly on^ hut tlxere is a peculiar excitement, about it that makes old veterans rise in their saddles and cheer. Wo have been fighting at the edge of the woods. Every cartridge-box has been emp tied once or more, and one-fourth of the brigade has molted away in dead and wounded and missing. Not a cheer is heard in the whole brigade. We know that we are being driven foot by foot, and that when we break once more the line will go to pieces, and the enemy will pour through the gap. Here comes help.' Down the crowded highway gallops a bat teiy withdrawn from some other position to save ours. The field fence is scattered while you could count thirty, and the guns rush foe the lulls behind us. Over dry ditches where a farmer would never drive a waggon, through clumps of bushes, over logs a foot thick, every horse...

The House of Orleans. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 April 1889

The House of Orleans. The death of Lord Newborough, a few days ago, will, it is said, lead to a revival by the' present peer of the claims of the family to the whole of the property to the prinoely house of Orleans. The wife of the first Lord Newborough, and the grandmother of the present holder of the title, was a certain Maria Stella, the adopted daughter of one Chiappini, the jailer of the city prison of Modena. Proofs, however, are said to exist, not only in the Newborough family, but also in the imperial and royal archives at St. Petersburg and at Amsterdam, which con clusively prove that Maria Stella was the oldest daughter of Philippe Egalitc, Duke of Orleans, and of his wife,- the duchess. Louis Philippe was born at Modena on exactly the same data as Lady Newborough, and the proofs above mentioned show, without a doubt, that the infant son of the jailjr Chiappine was substituted for the new-born daughter of Philippe EgalitS and his wife ; the illustrious pair were then Due a...

Duke Maximilian of Bavaria. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 April 1889

Duke Maximilian of Bavaria. The late Duke Maximilian, of Bavaria was an expert performer upon the zither. In the reign of Maximilian the Second it was the custom to admit wandering minstrels to the summer castle of Hohenschwangen,where they were feasted in the great dining-h&II, as m the days of old. Late in the evening of a June day, an extraordinary looking player atruck his notes and sang his ditties before the castle-gate which was opened, as usual, to admit him. He was soon seated at the festive board, and the servants camo and went at his bidding. ' But,' he cried, lifting a glass of wine to his lips, ' it is sour. The king- has better wine in his cellar. Bring it at once.' The servants naturally objected, and ordered him to take what was set before him. He demurred and grew impudent. Other servants came to the rescue, and were upon the point of forcing him to depart, when the king appeared. ' Your majesty,' cried the minstrel, your menials have served me with poor win...

Carl Maria von Donau. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 April 1889

Carl Maria von Donau. Few names are read oftoner on the shop windows of Berlin than the aristocratic one of Carl Maria von Donau. In the Passage, along the Linden, one of the Friedrichstrasse, it stands out, with the nobiliary particle, i*1 bright red letters. Below it are the words ' Candy and Caramels,' which are now the favourite sweetmeats of the young ladies of Berlin. Ten years ago the young nobleman, a cadet of one of the most potent and distin guished houses in the empire, was an officer of thb Guards ih the university city 6f Bres lau. Like most of his kind, he lived a fabt life, and contracted debts for which there was but one solution-a wealthy bride. Despair and the threats of exacting creditors drove him to the daughter of a Wealthy Hebrew. Large sums were promised by the old banter, the height of whose ambition was the union of his daughter with the scion of this ancient house. The engagement was pubUshed, preparations "were made for the wedding. But Von Donaji was'tel...

Whist Rules in Rhyme. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 April 1889

Whist Rules in Bhyme. If you the modern game of whist, would know, From this great principle its precepts flow: Treat your own hand as to your partner's joiued, And play not one alone but both combined. Your first lead makes your partner understand What is the chief component of your hand; And henco there is necessity the strongest That your first lead be from your suit that's longest. In this, with ace and king, lead king, then ace; With king and queen, long also has first place; With ace, queen, knave, lead ace, and then the queen; With ace, four small ones, ace should first be seen; With queen, knave, ten, you let the queen precede; > In other cases you the lowest lead. Ere you return your friend's, your own suit play; But trumps you must return without delay. When you return your partner's lead take pains To lead him back the best your hand contains, If you received not more than three at first; If you had more you may return the worst. But if you hold the master card you're ...

Parties and Ee-partees. No Christmas gathering is cofnplete -with out its ' funny man,' and for the benefit of the millions of young gentlemen who aim at fame in that direction the* following hints are placed at their disposal: On arriving at the house of your host, walk in -without ringing the bell, as this procedure will enable you to get in the thin end of the humorous wedge, by informing the servant that, as a marrying man, you only intend to ling one belle. It's an old joke, but if you give the servant sixpenpo, he will consider it tip-top. Of course, this will give you an opportun ity of saying that you like to begin an .even ing with a fare stajrt ; that ' hansom Is. that hansom does,' and other witticisms of a similarly Jehu-bilant character. Don't wipe your feet in the entrance hall, but plead, in excuse, that you have a sole above trifling mat-ters. On going into the drawing-room, cause a friend to make some observation on your dress-suit. You must then jocosely give the f...

They never come back, though I loved them w< I watch the Koutli in vuiu ; The snow-bound skies are clear and gray, Wild and wide is tlio wan gull's way, And she comes never again. Years agone, on the flat white strand, I won my wild sea-girl: Wrapped in my ooat of the snow-white fur, I watched the wild birds settle and stir, The gray gulls gather and whirl. One, die greatest of all the flock, Perched on an ice-floe bare, Culled and cried as her heart was broke, And straight they were changed, that strange To women young and fail'. Swift I sprang from my Iiiding place And held the fairest fast; I held her fast, the sweet, strange tiling. Her comrades skirted, but they all took wing, And smote me as they passed. I bore her safely to my warm snow house ; Full sweetly there she smiled ; And yetfwhenever the shrill winds blew, She would beat her long white arms anew, And her eyes blanched quick and wild. But I took her to wife, ...

The Navigation of the Hawkesbury. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 April 1889

The Navigation of the Hawkesbury. The following excellent letter from a well-known townsman, who has interested himself much in this question, appeared in Wednesdays Herald:-Sir,-Twelve years ago the Harbours and Rivers Department caused a survey to be made of the Hawkesbury River at Windsor. Again, tn November last, the same department caused a flying survey to be wade, nnd in the report submitted to the department on 29th idem, the district engineer, Mr. Keele, reported very favourably of the probability of remedying the I evil. .Mr. Keele rtcomi/^nded ihf forniarioTi of" .i bank so a;-- tu narrow tin-- channel " by the use ot 1 fascines of ti-lree scrub, and ihe mud or sand dredged up from the culling, as by the intelligent incorporation uf these simple materials, walls could be made sufficient to withstand the action of the current."

Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 April 1889

Letters to the Editor. SIR,-In the concluding portion of my paper, headed " A few notes on Irrigation," 1 notice a few errors, which I trust you will kindly permit me to correct. I am not going to blame the broad-backed comp., but rather my own cali graphy-which, in common with that of the brotherhood-is not always the most legible. First, I may point out that where the word Cataract is used, the word should begin with a capital letter-it being the name of a river. Then, in referring to the Kalerun dam, I am made to say "suction" instead of SECTION; and lower down the column the word " co-operation " takes the place of EVAPORATION. These are the most serious defects, and, of course, obscure my mean ing ; as for the two or three substitions of one letter for another, they will be readily understood by your readers. Yours, &c., G. C. J., Windsor, ist April, 1889. SIR,-there is a question which has yet has received little attention from our politicians, but which ere long will ...

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 April 1889

TOPICS OF THE DAY. Listen to mo, and if you speak me fair I'll tell vou news, itidiflerent good to either. No Land Bill will ever be of real use that does not deal comprehensively with tenure of improve ments, as distinct from land itself; that does not nrovide for cheao and SDeedv transfer, instead of t" "' f 1 J - the present absurd delays, and enable registration of title to be effected by local registrars in every town. On the Continent of Europe there are States where a sale of land can be effected in a country town, at a cost of a few shillings. But as long as every transaction must filter slowly through the Sydney land titles slough of despond, the country districts will be none the better. And it should be an accepted principle that if the State sells land, the means of transit should be included in the bargain. Without roads or railways to convey produce to market the best land is value less to the occupant, and it would be far better to charge a higher price for land to wh...

Tom Taylor. A. man ot middle height, with lithe, sinewy figure, a massive brow, covered with a thatch I of iron-grey hair, rugged features, a celes tially defiant nose, a pugilistic jaw, bristling with crisp beard of grey, and eyes which glittered like steel, an immovable eye-glass, with stony and relentless gaze, which fixed me like the bull's eye of a policeman's lan tern. How. it remained perpetually screwed bl its place" appeared an inscrutable mystery. I arrived at the conclusion that the owner thereof must have slept with it, and was per plexed and astonished when, upon our going to bathe together, years later, in the creek at Douglas, he actually took it out preparatory to taking a header. It was at a dinner given at the Langham by a feminine literary celebrity, that I first en countered. this unpressive and somewhat ag gressive personality. We sat exactly oppo site. He glared, and I glared, but neither knew the other. I asked the men who sat next me who this mysterious stran...

It is a wooden lvouse^gsurrounded by a garden, and by the private graveyard of the dervishes.

She loved her husband, she loved power because she has in & high degree the political faculty and is endowed with a mind which sees things wholesale rather than in detail, and she is a very proud woman in the best sense of the word. Her husband and the throne, for which she had carefully edu cated herself, have been taken from hor, The misery of worldly greatness was impressed upon ner in the most cruel objeot lessons with which Providence was ever pleased to teach a human being. Her pride received sore rubs during the greater part of her married life. But it was buffeted with during her short and unhappy occupancy of the Imperial throne and was trampled upon in the early days of her widowhood. She only was esteemed as her husband's wife. As a woman she was held of no account, because her sex are des pised in Prussia. T...
