A CHINESE WIDOW. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 28 July 1876

A CHINESE WIDOW. In most countries it is common if not fashionable, for widows to seek for consolation in re-marriage. At Feo. chow. in China however, it appears that bereaved ladies look upon the lose of their sponses with more serious regret, if the story which comes to ns by the overland China mail can be taken as fairly illustrating the habits of the people who dwell in that part of the Celestial Empire (remarks the Daily Telegraph, in giving the following) : A short time since a young woman belonging to the Cheng family lost her spouse. There were amongst her friends those who counselled a surcease of sorror, and who told the lady that they were intimately acquainted with a gentleman to whose c'-re she might safely confide her future. But, un happily, Mirs. Cheng had made up her mind, and the decision she ha. come to was none other than to hang herself, or, as the phraseology is in that delightful corner of the globe, " to ascend to heaven on the back of a stork," Where upon, a...

PORTLAND CRICKET CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 28 July 1876

PORTLAND ORIOKET CLUB. - By an intimation in our advertising columns it will be seen that the Secretary of the Cricket Club has adopted the suggestion of Mr. Archer, made in a recent letter, and called a meeting to consider the present state of the ground with a view to its improvement. It is therefore to be hoped that the matter will not now be allowed to drop, but that a committee will be appointed who will be prepared to take the matter in hland at once, is the season is now approach ing when we fully expect tosee a very strong club established in the town,-one in fact that will be able to secure the lurray Challenge Cup a taste of the briny. We append the batting and bowling averages compiled from the scoring book; the former can be relied upon as correct, and it will be seen that S. Anderson, the energetic secretary of the club, takes the premier position with the splendid averago for country grounds of 10.5, the rest being so far below him as not to be worthy of special notice...

CONDAH. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 28 July 1876

COLND AH. (ROXo AS OCCASIONAr. count;rI'ONDer.T.) The lines of the Portland Shire Council have evidently not fallen in pleasaent plwes, as the proceedings at the last meeting testify. There was Mr- Bell's verdict against tlhem for £750, anl Dr. Johnstone, the lranx holme health offieer, for £35, which claim, I believe, was originally intended to he £75, but the worthy Dr., after reading the 1Ham. Spec's. subleader oin the question, decided to reduce it to theabo :e-namled sum, £35. The Council were willing to pay £5 for services rendr, rd, and £5 bonus, but the Dr. vows vengeance, as lie wants, if possible, to be recouped his expenses ro rates last year, when the Council had to invoke the aid of the law to recover them, and if, as the Doctor states, there was no sum named when lie was appointed, and no minute in the Shire minute book defluing the liability, I think the Council will be cast again. All these things show a loose way of conducting council business, and it should be at o...

THE DETECTIVE'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 28 July 1876

THE DETECTIVE'S STORY. It was a most complicated saffair, but I wasn't afraid of getting at the bottom of it. rI've been mixed up in some rum cases in my time, and I'm free to confess that this was a teaser. Old gentleman knocked down atnd robbed of a bottle of Excrygnosphbotyrchnos and a two .shilling piece with a hole in it in broad moonu light on Hampstead Heath. And no trace of the thief. It was a lucky thino he came to me about it private. If he'd gone to the station they'd either a' told him be was drunk and incapable, or pit him under police supervision for three years. "Should be know the man again if he saw him ?" " No, be was dreaming of his youth at the time, and wasn't noticing." "Could be give me any clue ?" "Yes, it was raining at the time, and whoever was on the heath must have got his boots wet." " All right, he might leave the rest to me;" which he did, and half a sovereign on account. Brilliant ideas are commtn as black berries in June to detectives. I'm no excepti...

THEODORE HOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 28 July 1876

THEODORE HOOK. Lord William Pitt Lennox gives in his " Celebrities I have Known," a few anecdotes of Theodore Houk. He says: -"I first became acquainted with Theodore Hook at a dinner party given by the late Richard Barbam ('Ingoldsby') some 50 years ago, and was at once struck with his wit and readiness at re partee. Cannon was present, and the evening passed off delightfully. At a late hour, or rather at an early hour in the morning, our host showed some signs of weariness; and being called out of his room, his health was proposed and drunk with the usual honours. On his return, Hook said :-' We have had the pleasuro of drinking your health in your aibsence.' I once drove down with Hook to Epsom. During the whole journey he kept up a running fire of pun, nuedote, and improviso. Hawes, sur geon, said he I ' that reminds me of two lines I once made on a sawbones of that name during the severe frost of 1814 : Perpetual freezing and perpetual thaws, Though bad for hips are good for Ha...

MELBOURNE. Tuesday, July 25th 1876. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 28 July 1876

MELBOURNE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Tuesday, July 25th 1876. It is very disagreeable to think that the credit of Victoria is so low in the eyes of American bankers that there is difficulty in negotiating a draft for £1,000, which the Government were morally bound to honor, but it is still worse to know that the Com missioners have decided to leave AMr. 0. C. Levey in his hole, and not only to abstain from helping him out, but actually to reprove him for getting into a mess, whic his palpably the result of circumstances which could not have been foreseen. Air. Levey appears to have been placed in the position that either Victoria must make the most show of the Australian colonies, and must spend about a thousand pounds to maintain her credit in the eyes of the world, and at this end lie is met with a practical refutation of his power to draw at all, and lie is to be warned that his further drafts will be returned dis honoured after the expenditure which lihas necessitated them I...

A Public Nuisance. (To the Editor of the Portland Guardian.) [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 28 July 1876

A Public Nuisance. (To the Editor of the Portland Guardian.) Sin,-I have only had the pleasure of residing in your beautiful little town about one month, diuring which time 1 have had to call at the Post-office for my letters; and I think it is high time that the proper au thorities should be informed (if they are not already acquaintel) of the disgraceful conduct of ia lot of young larrikins and big over-grown hobble-de-hoys at the Post-office window, on the delivery of letters by the evening mail. It is most astonishing to me that In a rising town like Portland such a state of things should be allowed to exist. I have noticed, night after night, elderly gentlemen and young females i-udely jostled and pushed about by these larrikins, and I have often felt disposed, if it were not for taking the law into my own hands, to collar one or two, and upset them into the gutter, which is what they most thoroughly deserve. I think a constable stationed there during the delivery of the letter...

This will be easily rectified, and eportivene a and buoyancy of animal spirit has. we believe more to do with the crushing and pushing going forward than any intentional rude ness. There is however one thing apparent to the most superficial observer, that the Telegraph and Post Offices are both totally unsuited to the present re quirements of the town. We believe that the Portland pattern of Telegraph and Post Office is the only remaining one ot ,the kind in the colony, and we would sug .goat that new buildings, should be at once put up, and the old ones sent to the Melbourne Moseum where they might be 'kept as curious exhibits of primitive Victorian architecture.
