VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879

Victoria. Some . speculators in Stawell have \ equipped a prospecting party to test a | lode in the Avoca district. There is good reason for believing that the reef | will turn out to be a veiy rich one. A Wangaratta contemporary states that last week two greyhounds got into the sheep-paddocks of the Messrs. Docker, of Bontkarambo, and killed four fine half-bred Lincolns, leaving the carcases half eaten. At Moroopna Brewery a man was washiug or steaming out a cask, when it burst, scalding him badly on both arms and face. The staves of the cask were blown about in all directions, j splitting to pieces another cask some yards away. Last Saturday, at Maryborough, a Chinamau offered some gold for sale at one of the banks. Just as the money was being paid over to him, the manager discovered a lump of beeswax stuck on the bottom of the scale. John retired hurriedly. The No. 1 Coal Company, Colac, have succeeded (says the local paper) in getting all the water ont of the mine, and on Friday...

A STORY FOR THE MARINES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879

A STORY FOR THE MARINES. Strange stories have, for several years, been rife in tlie American newspapers about the marvels of thaumaturgy wrought by the Countess Blavatsky, one of the Theosophical party now in Bombay. If they are credible (says the Bombay Gazette) the inference would be that a Simon Magus in petti coats had arisen in our days. Some of mem stagger oenei, as ior instance, ner causing music to float through the air in the absence of any comprehensible cause, tlie instantaneous duplication of documents and articles of clothing, the causing of inscriptions in golden letters, in Oriental texts, to appear and disap pear on the furniture, the rendering of herself invisible, the production of paintings and writings on paper by the mere placing of her palm upon the same. Yet all these phenomena aud many equally strange have been attested by numbers of eye-witnesses, not Theoso phists, nor even always previous ac quaintances. Of one of her magical pictures — the portrait of an ...

MR. M'CAUGHEY ON THE RAILWAY QUESTION. (To the Editor of the Riverine Grazier.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879

MR, M'CAUGHEY ON THE RAILWAY QUESTION'. (To the Editor of the Siverine Grazier.) Sir, — 'Misfortune makes us acquainted with strange bedfellows' is an old adage, which in the case I am about to review, might, be rendered 'self-interest makes us choose queer companions.' It was a sight for angels to see Mr. M'Caughey and Mr. Barbour carrying tne memorial irom uentdene to tne . Minister for Works in Sydney, praying for the railway to Hay to pass through that town and Urana. Of course it was solely on public grounds that these two gentlemen agreed to bury their political hatchet and together interview the Minister ; for neither of them have any personal ends to serve in the route which they so eloquently and. har moniously advocated! I venture to say, however, that there are not other two sane men in the colony who would adopt the route which they desire the railway to follow or on whom the arguments of Mr. M'Caughey as pub lished in the Express would have a feather's weight. These two...

ANTIQUITY OF GLOVES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879

ANTIQUITY OF GLOVES. As Xenophon, in his ' Cyropiedia,' mentions that on one occasion Cyrus went without his gloves, there are good grounds for believing that the ancient Persians were not ignorant of their use, and it is known that both Greeks and Romans sometimes wore them. The period when gloves were first used in England, however, is likely to be of miaco infiivaci- fn nil -' ? anfl fliic could not have been much before the time of Ethelred IT., when five pairs made a considerable part of the duty paid by some German merchants to that king for the protection of their trade. In the reign of Richard and John gloves were worn by the higher classes, some times to the elbow, jewelled on the backs aud embroidered at the tops. Our ancestors closely connected gloves with chivalry, both in love and war ; und the custon of throwing down the glove was equivalent to a challenge ; the person defied signifying his acceptance of it by taking up his opponent's glove and | throwing down his own....

MOORISH SERPENT CHARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879

MOORISH SERPENT CHARMER. At Tangier we were delghted to find a serpent charmer. We witnessed this performance many times whilst in the countiy, but never so well as on this first occasion ; and even at the risk of introducing asubject already threadbare, I am tempted to describe what we saw — the more so as the Moorish exhibi ? ? : j ? » i_ j» ? , i_ ? biuu uiuertt uuusLueraory irom mat common in India. When we joined the crowd, two old men were sitting in in front of a fire of sticks, warming their drums j a sluggish dark-coloured snake was lying in the centre of the area, aud a wild-looking Moor — one of the Aissowa, of course — with long, tangled black hair at the back of his head, and wearing but little clothing, was moving about the ring. He called iu two children — demure little fellows with shaven heads — aud commenced talking to theiu as though giving serious instructions. They were made to repeat after him various exclamations, often to the amusement of the by standers ; he...

ARRIVAL OF CALIFORNIAN MAIL. Auckland, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879

ARRIVAL OF CALIFORNIAN MAIL. Auckland, Wednesday. TlIE Californian mail steamer Australia ar rived this morning at Auckland. The follow ing is a summary of the mail news brought by her : — Twelve hundred volunteers for service at the Cape have been called out from the regular army and the militia. A great riot and faction fight has taken place at Cork, in which 40 persons were injured — chiefly scalp wounds — and oue policeman's scalp was fractured. Dow's cotton mills, at Paisley, have been burned, and 400 men were consequently thrown out of employment. England has positively refused Russia's proposal with regard to the extradition of Nihilists. Cordial assurances have since passed between Lord Beaconsfield and the Czar, the latter remarking that he regarded the preservation of good feeling with Eng land, and he felt sure that the decisiou had been arrived at iu the best interests of Europe.

THE COFFEE PUBLIC-HOUSE MOVEMENT. ( Chamber's Journal.) Tiie design of the coffee public-house movement on the part of an association is to establish on self-supporting prin cipales public-houses without the sale of intoxicating drinks. With a view to the extension of this movement, a conference was held on the 21st June, 1877, under the presidency of the Duke Piwra uroro 1-oarl 'I'-*' showing that the coffee public-houses, when opened in suitable districts and conducted on sound principles, were largely used by working people, and proved financially successful. The re sult of the conference was the formation of the Coffee Public-house Association, the object of which is ' to promote the establishment on self supporting prin ciples, of public-houses without the sale of intoxicating drinks.' This is now being done by drawing public attention to the subject, by the collection and diffusion of detailed information, and. uy tne iormation 01 a iuna to oe applied to the establishment and ...

THRIFT. Mr. John Alsop, actuary of the Melbourne Savings Bank, writes to the Argus as follows : — ' I think you will agree with me that the habit of economy is sadly neglected on our community ; living frotn hand to mouth, forgetting the past, spending all that is earned at tiio nwHumf and frnshmff t/i lnnV for ? ? - Hie future, seems to be the style adopted by thousands in our midst.

The population of Glasgow ! is estimated at between 800,000 and | 900,000. It has its post-office savings banks and its general savings bank as Melbourne has.

(Gundagai Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879

( Gvndagai Times.) It is not the present Ministry alone that is to blame for some steps not having been taken to prevent the influx of this most undesirable class of colo nists, for the danger has been in exist ence ever since the arrival of the first batch of communists in New Caledonia. it was, ot course, certain that sooner or later the French Government would grant an amnesty to the communists, and it was equally certain that the greater portion of them would make their way to this country. Sir Henry Parkes has stated that the Government is fully alive to the danger to be ap prehended from the landing of the com munists, but he has taken no steps to obtain legislative sanction for their ex clusion, and he evidently does not intend this session to introduce any measure on the subject He probably thinks that owing to the backward state of business in Parliament, it would be useless to attempt any legislation this session, but it would be certainly desirable to pass a short; Act ! ...

THE YANKO CUTTING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879

' THE YANKO CUTTING. (From our Correspoudent). One of the most permanently, useful hydrau lic works in New South Wales has just been completed. All of your readers will be familiar with the locality of the Yauko Creek, its name being somewhat famous iu the annals of squatting and free selection. The country around the Yanko comprises oyii.t .11 ui.o t.uwu.cai; jIUl ,u 1U.U11W, but the land blocks suffered from scarcity of water, permanent supplies of the indis pensable fluid beiug only to be secured by the construction of expensive tanks. Tbe creek itself is a blind watercourse, aud iu dry seasons contains no water. It extends from the Murrumbidgee. to the southward, and in times of heavy floods that stream receives a quantity of the overflow. Some considerable time ago the divellers ou the l.anks of the Yunko conceived the idea tlint were it connected with the Murrumbidgee by a cutting it could be turned into a practicably permanent stream.

The French Government ships out cargoes of its moral filth to New Caledonia, and is not then caretnl Uiat tne Australian colonies shall not be injured thereby. Very considerable numbers escape, and others are liberated ; and these danger ous characters make their way to New South Wales and Queensland. Hitherto representations to the French Govern ment have not been attended with satisfactory results. The authorities are desirous to make a satisfactory arrange ment, but they do not see their way to do so. However, if they continue their present system of transportation, we shall be bound - to take action, and, as far as possible prevent by legislative restriction the arrival of a French criminal population.
