History of New South Wales from the Records. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 10 July 1889

History of New South Wales from the Records. [BvG. B. Bahton-.] We received a copy oi this work, which is ex ceedingly welt got up and is a credit (o the colony from its execution both as regards typography and binding. The literary portion of the work gives evidence of careful research and it is written in a- lucid and pleasing style, A good deal of official information is offered regarding the prominent events oi the early history oi the colony which is quite new to us, although strictly speaking the term history seems rather a misnomer. The pre sent volume, which, however, only comes down to the year 1789, h rather a collection of antiquarian researches, official documents and interesting copies of very old maps, than a historv. The first hundred pages is a sort of discussion as to what name this Southern Continent was known by in the early part of the last century. In one of the maps, pub ished in 1578, Term Australia is represented as a large southern continent extending all ar...

Apples for the Queen. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 10 July 1889

Apples for the Queen A man in New York State sent a barrel of the finest apples the state could produce to Queen Victoria. There were seven kinds of apples in tho ban-el. Showing the advance in knowledge tiiat New York men have made since the time of Charles Dickens, it may be mentioned thst this New York man sent the apples to Windsor Castle and not to the Tower of London, where the .New tork Politician of ' Martin Chuzzlewit' was certain the Queen lived. In due time the Ne«' York man was made happy by receiving a note from the naster of the Queen's household saying that the ap ples had arrived. Next he got a letter from the 'Board of Green Cloth,' Buckingham Palacp saying that the apples were being used and that while everybody was very glad lo get a chance at them, yet it was not cus tomary there to receive presents and that a check for £3 would be sent to him. In due time the paymaster of the household, located at St. James Palace sent on the cheque and the New York man received...

Mistake-Proof Umbrellas. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 10 July 1889

Mistake Proof Umbrellas. A party of gentlemen sat together in the rotunda of one of the downtown hotels yes terday afternoon. At some distance from them,* leaning against the news counter of a cigar-stand, there stood a brsmdncw gold heiided cane. Nobody seemed to pay the least attention to the cane. But this state of affairs was not destined to remain so long. A stray gold-headed cane without a claimant ! Had anybody heard the like of it before. A spruce, natty-looking man soon stepped up to the cigar-case. He looked around and carelessly surveyed his surroundings. Then lie slowly backed up to the news-stand. He fumbled behind him and smiled. He had picked up the ownerless gold-headed cane. Whir-r-r-r — pssst — fling — ling, ling, ling, ling! Bang! The cane was instantly dropped, and the group in the rotunda roared with laughter. A crowd soon collected around the hapless, natty gentleman. The expression on his face* was a study. To say that he was astonished is putting it mildly. H...

The past riches of Nerriga have been won derful and the local records andraniniscencesof the pots full of gold washed out by uiiacrs here in yeart gone by, must set the mouths of mining speculators watering, and hence.

Cheap Telegraphy. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 10 July 1889

Cheap Telegraphy. A remarkable proposal has just been made I public which points to a possible revolution j in commercial telegraphy and the speedy ' realisation of the long-looked-for threepenny telegram. A well known London journalist, Mr. Edwin Guest, has invented a code ap- 1 plicable to telegraphy, as well as to a vast number of other uses, in which the Roman characters of the common alphabet, the Arabic numerals and the usual punctuation marks are employed in such a way that if the system were learnt by the clerks in the j telegraph department of the post-office, I which the inventor maintains might be ac complished by each in half-a-dozen easy lessons, the enormous business of the depart ment could he at once more than trebled without tlie outlay of an additional penny on wires or plant. The system, which the I author culls typo-shorthand, is being em- 1 ployed in combination with type-writing I machines for the rapid reproduction of I transcript a rate of speed of from 200 t...

The Origin of Tobacco. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 10 July 1889

The Origin of Tobacco. ToBACCO,according to an Arabic legend trans lated in the La. Com media Umana, is no older than the founder of Islam. The prophet was ? once travelling across the desert of Yemen. It was winter, and all the reptiles which infest the desert were asleep. Sud denly the prophet's horse trod upon a viper, and apparently wounded it. Mahomed, full of mercy, got down from his horse, and taking up the vipe', put it into his sleeve, hoping that tlie warmth would restore it. The viper soon began to stir. Incapable of gratitude, like the serpent which was in the beginning, it add to Mahomed, ' Reverend prophet I will bight thee !' ' Nay,' replied the mild prophet, 'that would be the black est ingratitude, poor reptile, to repay a good deed with an evil deed.' 'Nevertheless,' said the viper, ' I shall do it ; I swear by God Almighty that I will bite thee?' When Mahomed heard tlie name of Allah, he dared not prolong the dispute, but, bowing his head with reverence, said, 'Hi...
