A Criticism of the English. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 2 June 1894
A Criticism of the English. | Having epent twenty years in London and two weeks in this country, I am qualified, I imagine (soys a French writer), to present an original and intelligent opinion upon this great city and upon the character and customs of the people who in habit this kingdom. London, for all practical purposes, is Piccadilly surrounded by a bewildering network of slums. The popula tion is distributed as follows : The successful thieves live in the west, the unsuccessful thieves in the east, the upper middle class in habits the north, and the lower middle class the south. There is for the Englishman but one God — that God is money, and the blessed trinity of commerce is composed of pounds, shillings, and pence. The Englishman carries his soul in his breeches pocket, and his real recording angel is the obscure clerk who tots up his daily balance in a ledger in some dis tant and dismal bank. There aro more churches, chapels, religious sects and denominations in Great Brit...

LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 2 June 1894
LOCAL NEWS. A Remedy Wanted. — Perhaps we aro too hard on Parliament. It is not the only sinner among public bodies which wastes time in too much talk. The Synod of the Diocese of Newcastle, now sitting, is a culprit of equal turpitude, although it is fair to say that its temper and manners are usually such as to offer an example to Parliament — lifter all, no great credit to a Christian assemblage. In &ynoo, meinoers aeciaemy tauc too much, antt their indulgence is tho more grievous outrage on common sense and business requirement, because the session lasts only four days, aud in every session there is abundant real work to be done. One of tho devices which Parliamentary managers have rc30rted to to stop needlees talk is to shorten the opportunities for discussion given by motions which aro formal. Synod had better follow the example. Nearly every sosjion there is raised a debate as to whether or not adoption of a report commits the House to approval of its recommendations ...
MINING NEWS. BARRABA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 2 June 1894
MINING NEWS. barraba. ^ uurrcaponaenc wntes :-Some three months ago I wrote you an account of gold found in nuggets, etc., I knew was found here. Many persons have visited the different places. Some set in to work, others did not like tho risk of prosecution, as the ground is nearly all in selections. Those who had means went to work with a will, and have been suc cessful. Many, without means, run from one claim to another, and generally miss any chance of find ing gold. One claim called Try Again, was taken up by Messrs, Watt, Davies, Burke, and others ; they have struck a vein of good gold, and I believo tho specimens are equal to any found in former days. They have secured Fletcher's old working, and intend to bring a battery to work both places. John Guy, a resident miner of 15 years, has a good claim on the old Ororo Mountain. I hear he struck a good patch last week— I was told 40 ozs— but I can't vounch for the truth. Messrs. Taylor aud Charmer havo some good reef property ; o...

COMING WONDERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 2 June 1894
COMING WON DEM. A kecent issue of the London Spectator gave a number of interesting prophecies which at tho end of the third decade of the century found expression in a magazine called The Keepsake The writer looking into the future, far as human eye could eee, but no doubt having his imagination quickened by scientific discoveries, the rorerunners or a long ana miirvellouc series, uttered a forecast of what science might be expected to achieve. There was much BhrewdneBsviBibleinthe prophecies. They actunlly did anticipate some of the most wonderful discoveries o£ the century ; but, being tho product of the unaided human fnncy, they did not embrace the half of what science has actually done. The modern Sybil — tho author in hia article imagined her to be the seer — represented a traveller coming from London to Edinburgh in seven hours and a half. The express on the Groat Northern Line actually does tho distance in eight hours. We find tho idea of magazine rifles aud of the Maxim gun...

INDIVIDUAL TEACHING. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 2 June 1894
HrDIYIDUAIi TEAC HINGo j Quit public school system b «s many points' ! which entitle it to admiratioi V aud . probably- no other method of teaching co 'uld eonviently be adopted in view of the .Wge number of pupils to be taught and the c omparutively small army of the teachers. Yet it fcae in one. respeet a serious defect. It doetT not bring the dali or unready child on as m«on as is desirable. Satisfactory res ulta are produced in the majority o f cases, and the syatem of teaching n & doubt helpB largely to conquer dulne vs and to supply readiness. But after all tb ere is a residuum in every class not to be touc bed by the class method. Tha backward sti idect* are not necessarily stupid, but they want what they cannot got under our metho d, to be studied ia their turn, and to be taugh '-t in such a way that they shall give their pow 'bh a fair chance. Perhaps there may come c *ne day a reformer amongst us who w ill take up the cause of such student even to the establishment...

THE OFFICE OF PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 2 June 1894
TEE OFFICE OF TAOTiTAMENT. Sir TIenex Paiikes, in a speech-delivered at St. Leouarda t-bia week, reviewing the state of public affairs and the political prospect, uttered words of weight in reference to the duty of electors in the coming content. He reminded his hearers of the proper office of Parliament, which people are too apt m .New South Wales to forget. Certainly circum stances are unfavourable to tho maintenance of the highest Parliamentary ideal. The State with us is burdened by so many duties which do not properly come within the scope of national government. Eoads, bridges, and other means of communication are of course important contributions to the national welfare, and cannot- be negleeted without causing public injury. Bat such works ought not to he bo uompletely recog nised as the care or the State as to affect for the worse the composition of tho Legislature. Yet such is growing to be more and more the case in New South Wales. Regard for political principle is fading...
