TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 April 1889
TOPICS OF THE DAY. Listen to me, and if you speak ine fair I'll tell you news, indifterent good to either. The clause in the Brunker Land Bill pro posing fixed periodical increase of rental, coupled with compensation for improvements, is copied from the Queensland regulations, and promises, should it become law, to establish a new principle in the Land regulations of the colony, for it admits the claim of the State on the increased value derived from increased pop ulation, while carefully reserving the right of the individual to the result of his labor or the outlay of his capital. The removal of the vexatious delays which now beset the applicant for a conditional purchase will be a great boon, and if at the same time the useless red tape formalities and the end less schedules of questions were relegated to the limbo of repealed regulations, so much the better. Whether an increase of area is quite as desirable is not so certain. Large holdings have an evil as well as a good side, an...
Winnecke's Periodical Comet. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 April 1889
Winnecke's Periodical Comet. Dr. Ednard Freiherrn von Haerdtl, of the Uni- versity of Innsbruck, has recently published a quarto volume of 96 pages, containing an elaborate investigation of the movements of this interesting comet during its appearances in 1858, 1869, 1875, and 1886. The work is locally interesting, as much of the material employed emanates from the Observatory at Windsor. At the return in 1886 the 8-inch equatorial had been fortunately mounted in time to enable a long series of positions of the comet to be obtained. The following is a list of the stations at which it was observed during this appearance, together with the number of days on which it was observed at each of them:-Algiers 2, Cape of Good Hope 32, Nashville 10, Nice 4, Palermo 1, Sydney 18, and Windsor 34. The author designates the obser- vations at the Cape and Windsor as " die zwei stattlichen und schdnen Beobachtungsreihen.", He points out a small systematic difference between the declinations as obta...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. FATAL ACCIDENT.-A sad fatality occurred at the Bondi Aquarium on Saturday afternoon.

The evidence went to show that prisoner was in Windsor on the 25th February in company with Albert Wellington ; prisoner asked Wellington to go into Mrs. Wright's store to get change of a coin which he said was a sovereign; Wellington could not get it, and handed the coin back to prisoner, asking him whether it was good ; prisoner said it was; subsequently prisoner pur chased 2s worth of cigars and received 18s change for...

Black Underwear. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 May 1889
Black Underwear. Just a little startling toold-fashionod ideas of bridal outfits is the modern idea of black underwear. It was looked upon at first as the momentary freak of some aspiring fashion leader, but there is no denying its popularity. Black hosiery and petticoats are a fixture ; night-robes, chemises, and so forth soon will be. Forming a part of a unique bridal set made iu one of the large cities for an expec tant bride, are some of these sombro-hued garments.' The black night-robe is of China silk, made Mother Hubbard. A short, «hirred yoke is drawn up with orange ribbons, these to remove at will. A coat sleeve with, a puff at the top, black lace frill at the neok, and sleeves and bottom flounce, finished the novel garment. These black night-robes are ' startling, but they grow on oxe. They are well adapted, for travelling, for sleeping-cars , and for possible accidents. They neither 1 catch dust, wrinkle, or advertise their use. To be mashed up in that Bort of a garment w...

ST. ALBANS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 May 1889
ST. ALBANS. It is a good while since 1 have seen any news from here, so I will try and give you a little. Everyone about here are busy pulling and getting in their corn, which is only very poor. The late rains have enabled the larmers to plant barley and oats for winter feed, which will help the poor slock. I see that the old church at Wiseman's Ferry is being erected again on the same allotment of ground, but a little further back than ihe'old site. It will be a nice addition to tho. Ferry, for ever since the old building has been down there seemed | something wanting. I he new one is being erected j by a Sydiif.v contractor, and they are workin;; 1 with good will, and they will not be Jong in re building it.

RIVAL POLITICAL LEADERS. Premier Parkes. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 May 1889
RIVAL POLITICAL LEADERS. [By D. D.] Premier Parkes. " Paint me as I am," said Cromwell to the ambitious artist, to whom he was sitting. Such, I think, would be the wish of Sir Henry Parkes, were he to be informed that he was under the operations of either brush or pen. I am an oppo nent of our Premier, therefore he is my devil, and must appear on the journalistic canvas as black as the historical divines were wont to paint the ex ?onents of opposing creeds. Nothing of the kind, 'arkes has as much right to his opinions as I mine, perhaps as the older man by far, he may claim a greater right. Have you ever read a little poem that tells of two prattling children watching the clouds at even tide ? Being struck with the beauty of those upon which the setting sun cast its golden splendour, and being filled with dread of those that, black and brooding, hung like toppling cliffs, ready to fall and crush all beneath their area they were astonished when their father told them that the golden ...
