SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. THE BATHURST CRIMINALS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 31 May 1879

SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. The Bathurst Criminals. The evidence goes to prove that, as regards the younger criminal, the act was more the result of 'skylarking' between the boy and girl upon whom the offence was commited, than of pre meditated villaiuy ; but as the Execu tive Council has decided tbat the Judge's sentence shall be earned out, a sort of morbid sentimentality has seized upon a section of tbe public mind, and great indignation is expressed at what is termed 'unnecessary se'verity.' Wil kinson and Metcalf are described as ' tbe roughest type of bush larrikins,' and it is for the salvation of such as these, in the face of the direct evidence of the act taken at the trial, that all this virtuous indignation and sympathy is expressed. * * * * The crime committed under most circumstances is an appalling one, but in the face of the evidence tendered at their trial, it does not seem to be greater than what is done every day of tbe week. Carnal connection was had with the girl no dou...

ANECDOTES OF LAMARTINE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 31 May 1879

ANECDOTES OF LAMARTINE. ' On, if I only had a hundred francs,' cried one evening in his presence, with the feverish accent of a pauper having an El Dorado within his grasp, Balzac's famished secretary, Lassaily. ' Oh, if I only had a hundred francs, I should be happy for once.' ' Be nappy tor once, then, and tor nine more times,' said Lamartine, as he gave him a thousand. Lamartine was rich then ; his pub lishers were paying him 50,000 francs for each book he wrote ; but there came another time when the ' Cours de literature' was the supreme resource of the man who had written ' Raphael and Grazlella,' and Lamartine waited in the Rue de la Ville l'Bveque for subscribers as for manna from heaven, and when it rained said sadly, 'No one will come to day.' Having much running about to do, the poet, in whose stables had once been many horses, fancied that by severe economy he could lay up enough money to buy a pony-chaise, which would really be a saving of money, since saving time on the...

A letter recently produced in a breach of promise suit as evidence con tained the following senteuce: 'Dearest love — I swallowed the postage-stamp ' on you v letter, because I knew ' your lips had touched it.' I Dew of the Alps. — The tonic and vitalizing properties of this agreeable vegetable specific have been fully tested in all various climates of Australasia, and tbe universal opinion of our people seems to be that it is the finest tonic, the most reliable restorative, and the surest preventive of all epidemic and endemic diseases tbat has ever reached | us. To Messrs. M. Moss and Co. we are indebted for tbe first acquaintance with this appertizing cordial, with which they are now supplying the market regularly, though scarcely in sufficient quantities to meet the urgent aud constantly increasing demand. The ' Dew of tbe Alps' dates back to the 15th ceutury, when the aromatic herb to which it owes its wonderful virtues was discovered. It has been the national tonic of Switzerl...

THE HORRORS OF WAR. UNAVOIDABLE MASSACRE OF AFGHAN PRISONERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 31 May 1879

THE HORRORS OF WAR. I Unavoidable Massacre of Afghan Prisoners. On the following day (the 8th) recon noitring parties secured the country in every direction, and came back with the news that although straggling parties of natives were still on the hillsides, yet not a single Mongol or Waziri was visible on the plain. It was pleasant information, and the day passed quietly. J About 7 o'clock, however, when we were in the midst of dinner, two shots were fired on the right side of the camp, and this was immediately followed by rifle-firing by our sentries all around. Everybody jumped up in astonishment. To judge by the continuance and rapidity of tbe firing, the enemy had crept down from the hills across the plains, aud were now surrounding us. The General buckled on his revolver and went out to see what the matter was, at the same time sending several of his officers to bring him informrtion. Bang, bang, bang, went the rifles on every side. Jt surely must be a serious business. The tr...

INFANT MORTALITY RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 31 May 1879

INFANT MORTALITY IN RUSSIA. There is hardly a country in the world where infant mortality assumes more appalling demensions than in Russia. This may easly be exclaimed by tlie method in which newborn infants are commonly treated, so that it is a wonder liow children survive. After birth, tbe baby is wrapped up in towels and left for several 1101111! on the bed, till the bath-room has been thoroughly heated. (No cottage, be it ever so poor aud miserable, is ever built without a bath-room, which is generally adrauglity, miserable place.) Here tbe child is at last bathed in a most primitive way, and often either dies from cold or is scalded by the hot water. It is then brought back into the house, laid upon the stove (a large stove with a broad top is at once the bed and bedroom of the whole family) ; and immediately a dirty rag, containing brown bread which lias previously been chewed by tbe mother, is put into the child's mouth to be sucked. This bread being very sour, tlie acidity o...

INTEMPERANCE. The following is a summary of the re commendations of the committee of the House of Lords on intemperance : — ' 1. That Legislative facilities should be afforded for the local adoption of the Gothenburg and of Mr. Chamberlain's schemes, or of some modification of them. ' 2. That renewals of beerhouses li censer! ueiore loo'J should be placed on the same footing as those of public houses. ' 3. That in cases of decisions affect ing the renewal of licenses in boroughs having separate quarter sessions, the appeal should be to the Recorder, where there is such a functionary, and not, as at present, to the county justices. ' 4. That it should be expressly en acted that justices should be authorised to refuse transfers on the same grounds of misconduct as those on which re newals of licenses are now refused. ' 5. That no renewal of a license from one liou.se to another should be sanctioued without giving to the in habitants of the locality to which the removal is proposed the...

A SECRET WELL KEPT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 31 May 1879

A SECRET WELL KEPT. Many residents of San Jose will re member the little grocery near the Gaudel upe bridge on Santa Clara street, and the quiet, uncommunicative woman who kept the place aud lived in the same building with no other companion than her only son, a mere lad, but of j all who knew Mary Lewis none sus- 1 nected the sad and romantic historv of her life, nor was the story known to any until after her death, which occurred last December. She uever spoke of her antecedents or told more of her story than that she once lived in Australia, and cauie to this couutry about fifteen years ago, bringing her boy, then an infant, with her. The income derived from her business in the little store was just sufficient to support her. and having nothing she was of course an object of no special interest to her neighbours. In Decem ber. last she was taken ill, and realizing that she had but a short time to live, Mary Lewis expressed a strong desire to see the county judge, intimat ing that...

THEOLDEST ELEMENT IN THE BRITISH POPULATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 31 May 1879

THE -OLDEST ELEMENT IN j THE BRITISH POPULATION.

The unity of Germany bas been the bauner under wKich Prussia lias marched out to victory, and the ties of a Slavonic brotherhood are considered a sufficient ground for making thr Russian Empire co-extensive with the Slavonic race. Among the Romance peoples there lias been a dream of a Celtic Empire, to include Italy, Spain, and France, so as to form what would practically be a revival of the Rome of tbe West. Even among people so devoid of im agination as ourselves, tlie English, race is looked upon as one and the same, whether it be in England, in the Americas, in India, or in Australia, and the feeling...

LORD HARRIS' COMPLAINT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 31 May 1879

Lord Harris' Complaint. At the time when the unfortunate disturbance took place on the cricket field during the match between Lord Harris' team and the New South Wales Eleven, it was said with justice that tbe effects would be injurious to the colony generally, through tbe bad im pression produced in Great Britaiu of the manners and customs of the colo nists of New South Wales. It is use less to shut our eyes to tbe fact that the past history of the colony renders it necessary for us to be exceedingly care ful to avoid any appearance of rowdy ism. What might pass unnoticed in the conduct of a Melbourne mob would be put down in a Sydney crowd to the ill effects of the penal origin of the settlement of New South Wales. What was predicted has happened, but not iu an expected manner. It never entered into our thoughts that Lord Harris would send home for publication a lengthy and inaccurate statement of his grievances, reiterating all his charges against the Cricketing Association and t...

The Garrett and M'Elhone Case. Believing, as we are bound to do, that Mr. Garrett is a slandered man, this abortive result of all his very osten tatious preparations for the fight cannot but he regarded as most disastrous both to him and to the public. The charges, against him were direct, circumstantial, and dishonouring, and, in common self respect — to say nothingof ' that reBpect which is due to his pOliticalposition- — he ought to have allowed nothing less than an adverse decision of the highest court of appeal Mb case would admit of to turn him aside from proving his in nocence. If he had 'been really game,' be would have fought until he dropped. , Victorious or beaten, he would thennot only have won tlie respeot, but the ' gratitude of the colony. If he were victorious he would have put down' M'Elhonism ; if beaten he would have demonstrated to us the necessity of snuffing it out by Act of Parliament — Evening News. If Mr. M'Elhone had shielded him self from the penalties of ...

ANGELICA KAUFMANN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 31 May 1879

ANGELICA KAUFMANN. A beauty and a character was Ger many's greatest female painter of 100 years ago. Angelica Kaufmann, though not of extraordinary beauty, w«ir one of the sweetest women that ever lived — one of the purest characters. She was born in the studio, almost, in the the Alpine town of Chur, in Switzerland. Her father was a rather well-known painter in 1741, when the little blonde haired buby Angelica first saw the light. She became at once almost the com panion of his studies. At five years of age she was mixing paints for him, and talking wisely of the colours on the canvas. The father was not slow to detect and to encourage the little one's talent for an art which, though it brought him little money, had yielded ail exceeding pleasure. ' But the child has a voice, too,' said the proud mother, and her heait's desire was to see her a famous singer. For years, almost, Angelica and the family wavered between two pathways — music and painting. At last the easel won the victo...
