STARVATION. (Emmincr.) The Mendicity Society assures us that it is -i crime to relieve beggars in the street. Three litile b-vs, eleven, ten, aed eight years old, were produced before Mr. Knox tbe other dav at ilarlborough Police Court, charged with begging. We cannot say au3'thing about the \ cast! more touching than the evidence : — ffnrgcaut Huuce, 5 C, said that about 8 o'clock t-» Friday evening lie saw the boys standing bv the door of Mr. Cook's, tbe confectioner, in Coventry- \ street, two on ouc side of the door and one on the other.

MEN'S VANITY. (The Queen.) [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 6 April 1867

MEN'S VANIIT. (The Ouctn.) ?\Villi regard to this very subject of faulty, inea'i notions about tlieingelves, and women's vifiirs on ilie .same point, are, according to our experience, considerably at variance. Woineu probably, we may almost say certainly, when if icir sex is accused of vanity, will acknow ledge ' the soft impeachment.' They hare heard it asserted very often ; ar.d it may be that every woman in her heart knows that ihere is something with regard to which she cherishes a little vaniiv. But men, if charged with being vaiiij will roundly deny it. This does not, however, diminish in women the con viction that the vanity exists, notwithstanding all disclaimers. Take the vanity of dress. That women thould be careful to dress as well as others is often given as an instance of their vanity. Are there no men to whom the length or width of a coat, the placing of buttons, the set of a bhii't-front, the width and shape of a collar, the fashion of a necktie, are objects of unceas...

It weighs 35 ounces and is solid gold, without a particle of quartz in it. The nap get is very peculiarly shaped, being of an oblong form, turned at the ends like a imrse-suoe, with this dif ference, that the curves somewhat resemble tlic bead of au eagle. Th- ugli not informed who the Incky persons are who dropped upon ir, we are inclircd to believe it was a party uf ChTnaincn, as there was Sijine rumour about a few weeks since as to a nugget having been fiiund by some Chiiianu-n, and it is baidly likely that it would have been kept so quiet had Kuropeans found it.

MEADOWS. Meadows, April 1. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 6 April 1867

MEADOWS. f From our own Correspondent. J Meadows, April 1 . The weather still continues cool and plea sant, and we have had several nice showers, which has set the gardeners and farmers busy preparing for ibeir early crops. The wheat harvest is now fairly over ; but, geuerally speaking, the yield has not been so great, nor the sample so good, as was antici pated — ihe hot winds which set in at Christ mas proving very injurious to the crops. A most influential deputation, consisting of several representatives ot various parts ot this aud the surrounding districts, headed by Mr J. Carr, M.P., recently waited on the Central Road Board to urge upon them to alter their decision in reference to the main line from Echunga to the Meadows, and so far succeeded as to obtain from them a promise to visit and inspect the rival roads in person, which promise they fulfilled on Wednesday last ; but as they declined expressing an opinion at the time, we are at present in ignorance of the conclusions...
