The war, with its probable effects on the future of the Empire, has been dis cussed from various standpoints during the last few weeks. It has opened the eyes of the people and their rulers to many of their shortcomings, and while it has shown us much of the dark side of human nature it has not been with out its compensations. It has demon strated that among foreign Powers there are some who would gladly see us worsted, even although they also suf fered indirectly. It has also shown us that there are even in our midst some wh...

Potgieter's is north of Zwartekop, on the Little Tugela' River, and the bridge seized consists of a ferry boat worked by a wire. The country northwards of this point is open, and suitable right up to Lady smith for cavalry work. Heavy rains have fallen during the past few days, causing the waters of the Tugela to rise. A bridge near Mount Inhlawe was carried .away, and has isolated the Boers, who had come down after Saturday's repulse at Lady smith.

SCHOONER LOURAH ASHORE AT PORT DAVEY. LIKELY TO BECOME TOTAL WRECK. ALL HANDS SAFE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 January 1900
SCHOONER LOURAH? ASHORE AT PORT DAVEY. LIKELY TO BECOME TOTAL WRECK. ALL HANDS SAFE. Messrs. Risby Brothers, owners of the new schooner Lourah, received a telegram from Mr. M'Dougall, of Recherche (says the "Tasmanian News"), stating that the Lou rah's crew had arrived there in a boat, and that the Lourah had dragged her anchors, and had gone ashore in Port Davey, also that the captain (Karlsen) considered she was likely to become a total wreck. The telegram, which was very brief, did not give any more information than the above, beyond stating that. Master Harry Risby, who was on board, had arrived with the boat's crew. At the time she was on her way from a channel port with a load of timber for Strahan, and was sheltering in Port Davey at the time. The loss is a severe one to Messrs. Risby Bros., inas much as the vessel is totally uninsured, and great sympathy is felt for the owners. At.the time of the disaster the.Lourah was on her second voyage, she having been only launched on ...

POLITICAL SITUATION. PARLIAMENT SUMMONED. UNIONIST PRESS. ASSAILING THE GOVERNMENT. Jan. 14. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 January 1900
POLITICAL SITUATION. PARLIAVMENT UGM'MONED. UNIONIST PRESS. ASSAILING THE GOVERNMENT. Jan. 14. The Imperial Parliament has been summoned to meet on the 30th inst. All the Unionist newspapers con tinue to assail the Government over the .m~ilitary deadlock in South Africa. The "Morning Post" (Conservative), the oldest London daily paper, and which takes a keen interest in naval and military matters, is particularly vigorous in denunciation of Ministers. It demands their dismissal from office, alleging that the military preparations -were determined by the Cabinet's own view of the political situation. Criticisms in the "Morning Post" and other newspapers have increased since .it was publicly announced that prior to his recall from the Cape General Sir "William Butler advised the use of 120,000 men if the campaign was en t.eredl upon.
NOTES ON THE CABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 January 1900
NOTES ON TI-E CABLES. (By Rhodesian.) Intelligence was received in time for the special war edition on Saturday that at last General Buller had made a forward move, and was operating on the south bank of the Tugela, near Springfield, and had got possession of the bridge at Potgieter's Drift. If re ference is made to my notes in the early issue of Saturday it will be seen from a description of the river given there that from Colenso Drift to Springfield, even with the stream in its normal condition, there is no place where a crossing could be easily ef fected with a large body of troops. This is borne out by the cable, which says that the so-called bridge is in reality a punt worked by a wire rope, which would be almost useless for crossing troops. It is said to be in proximity to Zwartekop, which lies in the fork of the Little and Big Tugela, and the ferry would therefore be in the nor therly bend, just near the junction. From this point towards Ladysmith the country is more open th...
"GOING." (Written for the "Examiner" by Bertha S. Adams.) [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 January 1900
"GOING." (Written for the "Examiner" by Bertha S. Adams.) When I think of it I can see the sun ashine on the hill, Can hear our heart's wild beating, the rest of the world quite still, The 'shadows sinking among the trees, white yachts going by, The shimm'ring river gliding away, and only "us" under the sky; But'cry! no, why should I cry?--our love is greater than ever, And I know, Mary, oh!- I know that he will forget me, never; I know that you loved yours well, but I ' know not why you should cry; I'd like "Mine" to think of a smiling face when he thinks of his last good-by. You say it is hard to be women;--so helD less, to stay behind; I thought so at first, but, Mary, oh! we are blind, we are blind; We cannot see thro' the dimness, but this I surely know: Our Father's love will gird them and guard them whereever they go. I was standing there in the gateway when he marched up brave as can be And said to me, "Sweetheart, sweetheart, you won't be angry with me?" I knew the rest in ...

BRANCH AT CIRCULAR HEAD. AN ENTI-IUSIASTIC MEETING. PATRIOTIC SPEECHIES. PRACTICAL SUPPORT. STANLEY,. Friday. A fairly well attended and enthusias tic meeting was held in the Town Hall to-night for the purpose, of forming a patriotic fund. Mr. H. G.. Spicer was voted to the chair, and briefly explained the ob ject to which the funds were to be devoted. Rev. R. Penty, in an able speech, pointed out that many were, grieving the loss of a father or a husband who had been killed while fighting for the country' of which he felt,so proud to be a subject. It was not their lot to light as soldiers, but they could help to swell the fund to provide for the ddependents. of the British soldiers. *He proposed that a branch of the Mansion House patriotic fund be formed: at Stanley. Rev. Morris seConded. the motion. He said 'as C'hristians and British subjects they should, do their utmost to help those dependent upon them. He hoped Stanley would not be behind with its mite. IMr. J. H. Edwards' sup...
