THE OPENING OF THE QUEENSLAND PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 24 May 1879

THE OPENING OF THE QUEENS LAND PARLIAMENT. The Parliament of Queensland was opened on the 13th by his Excellency Sir Arthur Kennedy. In bis speech his Excellency begins by expressing pleasure ' at again meet ing hon. members and seeking their aid at the usual time of the year, notwith standing the delay consequent on the change of his advisers. ' The Local Government Act of 1878 has been sufficiently long in operation to show that, whatever its value as an amendment of the municipal laws, its principles will not be availed of volun tarily by any district while hope remains of local works being undertaken by the central authorities. You will therefore be asked to sanction the necessary steps for relieving the Govern ment of the colony from its responsi bilities in connection with purely local affairs. To further facilitate the general adoption of local government, my Ministers will initiate legislation pro viding machinery less cumbrous and better adapted to tbe circumstances of spar...

SOCIALISM IN RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 24 May 1879

'SOCIALISM IN RUSSIA. The St. Petersburg correspondent of* the Sydney Morning Herald, writing under date March 16, says : — -, You have already heard, I presume, of the riots which took place lately at Kief. A descent of the police officials, ; and a consequent inspection of papers j took place at 8 o'clock on the evening , of the 23rd *eb., at the lodgings oi a i suspected student of the University of Kief. The young man boarded at the. house of an advocate, but was not at | home when the police came, nud his | landlord probably took such a descent as a matter of fact, or at lecst did not quite relish the idea of ruining his own reputation by interfering in such a business. Whichever of the two sup positions may be the true one Jors not of course much matter now. The police agents made their perquisitions and had the luck to lay their hands on a certain private letter to the young man, from which they learned that the local secret typography of the Socialist Society was installed i...

EXPOSURE OF SPIRITISM IN GLASGOW. The New Public Halls, Glasgow, were crowded on Wednesday night, to witness Mr. Bishop's second perform ance of the so-called spiritualistic feats, which he was solicited to give iu aid of the funds of the Western Infirmary. Lord Provost Collins acted as chairman, while Professor lloberton, Professor Ramsay, Professor Young, and Mr. Campbell, of Tullichewan, were ap pointed a committee to watch Mr. Bishop's movements, and assist in trying him. Mr. Bishop, before be ginning his performance, said that he had that morning received a large number of anonymous letters, of which he was unable to read one-fourth, but amongst them was one from David Dnguid, a Glasgow trance-painter, who asked if Mr Bishop could explain how that was done. Mr. Bishop said that when in Edinburgh he bad seen a portrait said to have been painted by Mr. Duguid while in a trance, and through Mr. Wild he wrote Mr. Duguid, offering him £20 for every parallel line he could draw if he ...

RE-ARREST OF WEIBERG, THE AVOCA GOLD ROBBER. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 24 May 1879

RE-ARREST OF WEIBERG, THE AVOCA GOLD ROBBER. The intelligence that tbe notorious robber of the bullion-room of the P. and O. Company's steamship Avoca had been recaptured was received with a great amount of incredulity on Monday morning, when the rumour was pro mulgated, and the doubt that the tidings -were too good to be true was increased when inquiries, both at the detective office and the Chief Commis sioner of Police's Department failed to elicit any information, good, bad, or indifferent. The Government, as in the late police murders at Mansfield, appear to be the last persons in the community to be apprised of the matter, and it was left to private individuals to furnish the first information of the recapture of Weiburg. News reached town early on Monday morning that Weiburg had been recaptured by De tective Edlesten and Mounted-constable Taylor, stationed at Griffith's Point, but it was not till about half-past 1 2 o'clock that the police received definite information that t...

BISHOP DUPANLOUP [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 24 May 1879

BISHOP DUPANLOUP. Even his enemies have done justice to the noble activity and dignity of his life as priest and bishop. He lived most simply, and strictly according to rule. He rose early, prayed for a considerable time, said mass at seven o'clock, and then worked uninter ruptedly till noon, when he breakfasted with the priests of his household, and any guests who might be stopping with him. He then generally took a long walk or found relaxation in a drive to the College of St. Mesmin. On his return he resumed work or received necessary visits. Dinner was served at seven o'clock, after which he re mained with those who were present till nine, at which hour he regularly retired. It was during those evening hours that his friends, men and women, not only from Orleans, but from all parts of the world, used to gather round him in the only salon in the episcopal residence, decorated with the portraits of his predecessors, and where he, generally walking up and down, would, in bis lively...

THE FASHION OF DISBELIEF. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 24 May 1879

THE FASHION OF DISBELIEF. The rage for assthetics iu every relation of life has given rise to a vast amount of satire and criticism of late years ; bnt the fashion lingers, and is being adopted warmly by the youthful genera tion which is growing up around us Every other girl is dressed on aesthetic lines, and, though she may be totally ignorant of tbe raison d'etre of her style of costume, she will be happily con scious that she attracts the eye of the public, and that her eccentricity passes falsely for originality. Many of these artistically dressed young women have not the vaguest notion of art, but it is sufficient for them to be informed that certain materials and colours are artistic to secure the salesmen their custom. As a contemporary points out, the aesthetic craze is by no means confined to the decoration of persons or dwel lings, but it pervades in a mischievous fashion the politics and religious belief of its votaries. The writer says that, as a rule, ' the apostles of ...

DEATH OF WM. BROADHEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 24 May 1879

DEATH OF WM. BROADHEAD. The once notorious William Broadhead, formerly secretary of the Sawgrinders' Union at Sheffield, aud the instigator of most of the trades-union outrages which were perpetrated there, has died from softeuinff of the brain. For pome years : Broadhead had ceased to have any active , connection with trades unionism, but at one time he was one of the most active of trades-union officials, and as secretary to the Sawgrinders' Union wielded an influence now almost incredible. Previous to 1867, the year in which the Trades Outrage Commission sat at Sheffield, there had been many terrible outrages, it was generally supposed that these were committed at the insti gation of trades societies ; but this was always stoutly denied by the officials, and by none more than by Broadhead himself. Towards the end of 1867, the house of a non-unionist sawgrinder, named Fearnhongh, was blown up by a can of gunpowder being thrown through a, bedroom window while the inmates were aslee...

CORRESPONDENCE. (To the Editor of the W. W. Express) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 24 May 1879

CORRESPONDENCE. (To tlie Editor of the IT. W. Express.) Sib, — After a very severe contest, loyalty has gained the day, and £ s, d. can no longer rule. Moreover, I see by an advertisement in your issue of the 21et inst. that one draper has decided to allow even the ' assistants of this town ' to be loyal — a very singular thing, But 1 don't think the matter was altogether in his hands. I am inclined to believe that the assistants (his excluded) would have been allowed to pay that amount of respect to Her Grapious Majesty which Is due by all British subjects, if that one draper had' not expressed the fact that he did not 'wish to do the assistants of this town out of a holiday.' . Allow nib, on behalf of seve ral of my brother assistants and myself, to state that we do not feel ourselves under any compliment whatever to that one draper tv ho is .so very considerate, and we all hope for the .future, as at present, to be living in a part of the world where our Most Gracious Sovereign w...

Unless they be a little more cautious ill their demonstrations, the doubtless estimable people who are agitating for the reprieve of the Bathurst criminals will be misconstrued. When we hear of ' indignation' meetings and ' enthu siastic' meetings, it will naturally he enquired whether there may not he sympathisers with a crime quite as diabolical as murder, and more so than bushranging. People who respect the law do not usually become either ' indignant' or ' euthusiastic' when they desire to advocate the tempering of justice with mercy. Tlie metropolitan papers have been teeming with letters upon the subject of the two unhappy youths who have rendered themselves liable to the extreme penalty of the law, by the commission of a terrible offence. Tliere has been a large amount of fine ?writing, and not a small amount of bad argument, in dulged in, and if the writing only be considered -while the argument is neg lected, a very wrong conclusion will be arrived at. The offenders will be...
