Kinglake, in his 'Invasion of the Crimea,,' vol, 6, speaks of his extraordinary valour at the battle of Inkerton as follows : — ' Colonel Daubeney's Singular charge. — In the earlier moments of this auda cious attack the colour-sergeant, Charles Walker — a man of great size and great strength — had weilded tho butt end of his rifle with prodigious effect ; and now, when English and Russians became so jammed together that none could make use of their weapons, this huge colour sergeant was still fiercely. driving a rent through part of the close compressed crowd, doing this more or less by the power of his mighty shoulders and arms, but also by dint of the blows he laid on right and left with his fists and tho way he maintained with his fe...

Huxley and the Pentateuch. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 13 August 1886
Huxley and the Pentateuch. ''My belief,- on the contrary is, and long has been, that the Pentateuchal story of creation is simply a: myth. I suppose it to be an hypothesis respecting the original of the universe which somo ancient^ thinker found himself able to reconcile with his knowledge, of the nature of things, and therefore assumed to be true. As such; I hold it not only to be interest ing, but a venerable monument of a stage in the mental progress of mankind, and I find' it difficult to suppose that anyone, who is acquainted with the cosmogonies of other nations — and especially with those of the Egyptians and Babylonians, with whom the Israel ites, were, , in such frequent communica tion— Bhould consider it to possess either more . or ' less scientific importance than may be allotted to these.' — JPopular Science, Monthly.

The JLate Ilishop Elamilngton. Danger offered- a positive attraction to him. The post of danger exorcised a powerful fascination over him. In riding, he would select the' most break-neck places. In canoeing over tlio flooded country, he would always seek out tho most dangerous rapids, and insist upon 'shooting' tho boiling rush of tho most impracticablo ' lashers.' At Mar tinhoe, on tho coast of Cornwall, ho was not content until bo had personally proved the possibility of descending tho cliffs by every most perilous path. On his first visit to Zermatt, lie must needs climb tho Riffelhorn alono and unaided, taking off his boots to enable him to cling to tho steop rooks which so sheerly overhang tho Gorner glacier. On his first missionery journeys to Central Africa, after ono of his many severe attacks of fever, being convalescent, ho thought to tako a short stroll and collect some botanical specimens.

Iron Logic. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 13 August 1886
Iron Logie. Peculiar pleas are put forth to justify a preference being given to colonial con tractors for ironwork required by the Goverment. One authority says 15 per cent preference would not cost the colony 15 per cent ; but only 5 per cent. He explains, as a sort of trade secret, that colonial work is looked on by outside contractors as a 'fat thing ' and that if 15 per cent, duty were put on iron im portations the outside tenders would simply reduce their rates by 10 per cent., to complete successfully against colonial firms, and thenet-increaseto the Govern ment would be only the remaining 5 per cent. Thus the colony is asked to put on an import duty of 15 per cent., in order that colonial ironworkers may get a preference of only 5 per cent. They dare not add the full 15 per cent. : to colonial contract prices, because the English, Scotch, Belgian, German, and American makers Would take 10 percent, of ' fat ' off their competing prices, and so compel the colonial maker to keep...

There he clmsed an old man into a houso, and broko. down the walls, pulled tho old man out, and dashed him to pieces. Tho same night the elephant knocked down several houses in quest of human beingsin the villages of Sandarpur, Bargaon, and Jaisingpur.

An Important Decision. A question of disputed life assurance has been decided on appeal before the Full Court in Sydney. One M'Call had assured in the Mutal Life Insurance Com pany for £500, and after his death his widow obtained a verdict for the amount. The company appealed, alleging conceal ment of a material fact, an that M'Call had been refused assurance in another office, and concealed this when applying to the present company.
