DESECRATION OF THE SABBATH DAY. (To the Editor of the Australian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 22 November 1873

DESECRATION OF THE SABBATH DAY. ( To the Editor of the Australian.) SIR,-Having noticed some time ago that the magistrates of the town of Braidwood had inflicted a fine upon a man for working in his garden on a Sunday, and on witnessing last Sabbath an action equally serious, because alike apposed to the laws which regulate society. I was struck with the anology in the supervision, in the interest of society, by the authorities which this plan and the above reason. There can be no doubt that if a power exists for the punishment of one kind of desecration, there is also a power for the suppression and punishment of another ; and I would ask why is it that the shops are al- lowed to remain open in Richmond on a Sab- bath day, for the disposal of their goods to the injury of those who are induced to buy, and the annoyance of those who are disposed to feverance the Seventh day. Will the in- dividual whose day is more commensurate with his labour, devote a little attention to i the above...

If he had sub- scribed himself ' Cynic,' no one, judging from SHS angry and spiteful production, could have doubted the propriety of his signature.

MATRIMONY, [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 22 November 1873

MATRIMONY, ! YES, lam Mrs. James Merkins, and I^ein^. cerely wish I was Anne Mary Stubbs, spin- ster, with nothing but my own whims and j humours to tremble me. Here am I, a eom~ paratively young woman, with ten chUdren. There is the baby: now, screaming as if*fire hundred, needles had been run into him. People talk about the comfort of a baby ; queer idea of comfort such people have : perhaps they would think purgatory comfort- able. Why, I never have one moment's freedom from anxiety, except when he is fast asleep ; not always then, for if his cheeks look a little redder than usual, I feel sure that a fever is coming on; br if his breathing seems slightly irregular,' I am perfectly con- ; fident that it is the commencement of croup' that bugbear to ali young mothers. If he is on the floor he sticks everything he can find into his mouth. I have just taken out two carpet tacks, and if he could only succeed in . swallowing the hammer his happiness would be perfect.

Sir James Marlin is in his fifty-third year, having been born in Ireland in 1820. He was a child on his arrival in this country, and he has never left it.

CHAPTER IX. GRAULE'S SACRIFICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 22 November 1873

CHAPTER IX. GRAULE'S SACRIFICE. AT the time of which we write, Drury Lane was a somewhat different neighbourhood to what it is at the present ; people of position and consequence resided there, and among the eyes of all Europe was at that period fixed ; the man who held the destinies, of nations within the hollow of his hand-Oliver Cromwell. None of his family were with him just then ; he had kept them away from the turmoil and horrors of the time, down in quiet Ely, and he was alone in the gloomy olú house, which he inhabited during his visits I to town. ! All was over ; the dread work was accom- plished ; the King was condemned to die. A ! strange, daring, boisterous humour, such as ! men often assume when steeling their hearts to the execution of some doubtful deed, had possessed him that day. After signing the death-warrant, he had, in a jesting Bpirit, smeared He.iry Martyn's face with ink ; had seized upon his cousin, Colonel Ingoldsby, put the pen between his fingers, and, gu...

CHAPTER Vlft. THE BLACK LEATHER POCKET-BOOK. WITH hearts ^deeply oppressed by the solemn scene they had witnessed, Hugh and Gerald slowly and silently pursued their, homeward way, 'unconscious that an enemy's eye was upon them, an enemy's footsteps were dogging theirs. Joshua Winyard was among the sixty-seven commissioners, who had doomed the King to death ; and it so happened that, while sitting in the tribunal, his restless, pry- ing eyes, |n wanderiug over the crowd of up- turned faces, had, hi an evil moment, lighted Upon Hugh Dreiincourt's, and soon afterwards upon that of his companion. He wasy not long in penetrating their disguises. In. their excitement and the oppressive heat of the Hall,.they had pushed back their wigs, and thtfs revealed their features-too absorbed in the momentous scene that was being enacted before them to have any thought of them- selves. When the court broke up, Winyard hur- ried away with all speed ; and, wrapping him- self in his cloak, plunged into...

KING'S ISLAND. THE CRUISE OF THE STEAMSHIP VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 22 November 1873

KING'S ISLAND. THE CRUISE OF THE STEAMSHIP VICTORIA.. Captain Stanley, R.N., reports that the weather during the cruise of the Victoria has been of a very favourable character for the work of the survey-nvre so than of any cor- responding period for the pa.-t six years ; the work done has been proportionately large, and it is a question whether the soundings about King's Island would not have been completed, and the outside work of the marine survey party at an end, if the Victoria had remained at sea and exhausted her supply of fuel. I he two rocks supposed to exist oft' the west coast of Kings Island at eight and twelve miles from the shore, have not been found ; but the whole western shore north of Fiizmaurice Ruy is fringed with sunken and half-tide rocks (in one place to a distance of 3 miles), and cannot be too carefully avoided. The I'eid Rocks,, lying to the southward of King's Island, at a i distance often miles, were visited ; the largest of these rocks, 45 ft. high, ii un...

FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 22 November 1873

For Marshal Bazaine s trial by court-mar- tial 250 witnesses have been subpoenaed. M. Buffet has publicly declared that fresh taxes must be imposed to provide forthedebt ; incurred to pay off the war indemnity, as the burden must not all be cast on posterity. The Bonapartists have severed their al- liance with the Royalists. Prince Napoleon has sought to form a league with the Republicans, but meets with scant encouragement from that party. M. Thiers, has renewed his allegiance to the 'j Republic. Sixteen vacancies exist in the French Assembly, but the Government dreads an ap ;. peal to the electorates. With the progress of the Tichborne trial e the spirit of partisanship grows more intense. ! The Judges and jury were hissed on leaving ,,the Court. Threatening letters are read ídaily. Owing to indecent demonstrations on j such occasions, the claimant is strictly pro- hibited from attending public meetings or shooting matches under a penalty of im- prisonment.

OUR C.P.S. AND HIS PERSECUTORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 29 November 1873

OUR C.P.S. AND HIS PERSECUTORS. IT will be recollected that a short time back one, Nell a compositor, sued us for a fort- night's wages. It was understood that the amount would be instantly paid ; so the ver- dict was not carried out in the alternative. The money was paid the next or subsequent day, and Mr. Nell obtained it in five minutes afterwards, Mr Thomas, the clerk, at the same time informing him that as Ms attorney had omitted to get the magistrates to carry out the judgment ; there might have been a difficulty in compelling the defendant to pay at all. Would anyone believe it upon this simple remark, Mr. Neilson, Nell's solicitor, thought it hj^duty^ to complain by a formal letter to Mé ^blonial Secretary, of the conduct of the C.P.S., alleging thafrhe should have seen that the verdict was carried out-that he was throwing obstacles in the way of the plaintiff, and that he (Thomas) had insulted the magistrates by the course he had taken.

The King had passed those last hours ut his life in taking an earthly leave of hi» chilj dren ; exhorting them, committing to them loving messages fo their mother, who was in France, to tell her how in thought she had ever been with him ; how she was at that moment as dear to him as on their marriagè d»y : ¡md how he trusted that they should soon meet where partings were unknown, ' Dear heart,' he said, to the little Duke of Glo...
