THE GLASGOW BANK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879
THE GLASGOW BANK. (London correspondent Adelaide Observer.) A second call of £2250 per share has been made by the liquidators. It will be a final one whether it covers the deficit or not, as hardly a single share holder can hope to meet it. I have heard that Mr. Charles Cowan, the celebrated papermaker, is about the oiuy man expected to weatner me storm. The original call of £500 per share cleared out more than a third of the proprietary. About 1250 contri butors were put on the list, and already out of the running. They have made full surrender of all their property to the liquidators and obtained their dis charge, or they have passed through the Court and been relieved at the expense of their general creditors, the liquida tors claiming almost everything. The amount of stock practically extinguished by the insolvency of the holders, in cluding that of the Bank itself 'and its nominees, is nearly £600,000. The Bank held about £200,000, and holders who had succumbed had over £400,00...
THE LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR AND THE BATHURST CRIMINALS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879
THE LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR AND THE BATHURST CRIMINALS. Sir Alfred Stephen (says the Evening News) made tho following remarks to a deputation of gentlemen from Parramatta, who waited ou him ou Tuesday morning to present a petition against the execution of the Bathurst criminals-: — His Excellency said that the answer be would crive was the nnlv one that nnnld lu- given, and that was that he was bound to take the advice of the Executive Council. Though he had a responsibility of his own independent of the Council, he would lay this petition before that body, and whatever their decision might be, though he did not pledge himself to carry it out, it was most probable he should be guided by it. Of course he had nothing to do -with arguing the case, still.less would he give them the slight est indication of any opinion he may have formed, or of auy possible result that might iattend the deliberations of the Excutive Coun cil;: but he happened to kDOw that in some instances— one iu particular...
LORD HARRIS'S LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879
Lord Harris's Letter. ( Corowa Free JJrees.) But this bumptious aristocrat flies into the English prints, and is not content with retailing the facts of the case, but must add the insinuation that the colonies were particcps criminis in the outrage, and sympathiser with the blackguards who committed it Hinc ilia: tachrimce it is a very great pity he could not turn his literary talents into a better channel, and let his late entertainers see that, while his sensi tiveness was outraged by the wanton insult offered to him, the honour of the colonies was vindicated by the outburst of indignation which the act called forth. The threat that in consequence of the blackguard treatment of Lord Harris and his friends by the Sydney roughs, no team of English gentlemen cricketers will visit the colonies again, is of so ridiculous a nature, that the colonies can treat it with the contempt it deserves. The colonies have little to fear from the bunkum of a fledgeling lord with a very stunted famil...
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879
South Australia. The Government of South Australia have introduced a batch of Chinese coolies at public expense, for employ ment in the colony for a term of three years. They are advertised for hire. A carcase of beef weighing, when killed and dressed, 16921b., was on view last week in a butcher's shop in Ade laide. The Assembly, after a short dis cussion, adjourned to allow members to attend the races. A passage at arms occurred between the Speaker and Mr. Ward. The latter contended that legis lation -would be reduced to a farce, if they adjonmed for the races, and the Speaker ruled that the term 'farce' was out of older. Joseph Lloyd, son of the Rev. Thos. Lloyd, Wesleyan minister, was found dead in bed on Saturday. At a meeting in connection with the Chamber of Manufacturers, it was re solved to take steps to secure the credit able representation of the 'South Aus tralian manufacturers at the Sydney Exhibition, and also, if possible, to raise funds to help approved artizans to vi...
QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879
Queensland. Labour must be very plentiful in Queensland, for one of the journals in that colony states that men are travel ling in droves up and down the Barcoo, looking for work, but finding none. A Communist under sentence for larceny escaped from the Brisbane gaol i last Sunday night. He cut his blankets into strips and made a hook of a bucket- J handle, by means of which he succeeded in climbing the high wall of the gaol ' and escaping. He was, however, re- j captured with some difficulty a short distance out of town. Prisonor ran for some distance, and when caught made considerable resistance. The headmastershipof the Toowoomba Grammar School has been conferred on Mr. F. R Burkett, M.A., Trinity College, Dublin, now of King's School, Parramatta. The Estimates show a decrease in departmental expenditure of £151,391, compared with the amount voted last year. There is a large reduction in the expenditure on roads aud bridges in all parts of the colony, and it is proposed that such...
MELBOURNE V. SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879
Melbourne v. Sydney. (Sydney Echo.) His Worship the Mayor has lately been feted at home and abroad. But in Melbourne, if report speaks truly, he has been improving as well as enjoy ing himself. If he has been partaking of the hospitality of our neighbours, he has also been looking into their institu tions. This is iust what an active man like Mr. Roberts might be expected to do, and it is just what a man in Mr. Roberts's position ought to do. We are not believers in a great deal that is said about the superiority of Melbourne to Syduey ; but it must be admitted that the civic authorities of the neigh bouring metropolis are a, little more vigilant than civic authorities here. If we can beat the Melbourneites in boat racing, we fear it must be acknowledged that they can beat us in street-cleaning. We shall be surprised if Mr. Roberts does not feel himself obliged to confess that Melbourne is better paved, better lighted, and better governed than Sydney. We know that the usual reply to...
SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. THE NORTH-EASTERN TIME-TABLE. (Echo.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879
SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. The North-Eastern Time-table. (Echo.) Having tasted the new wine, the people of this colony are not prepared to go back to the old : that is to say, having been accustomed to a- two days' post between this city and Melbourne, they are not inclined to ? revert to the old arrangement, under which three days were occupied. asq yet mis is tiiu idea that the Melbourne Postmaster General is endeavouring to carry out. Almost as a matter of course, Mr. Samuel has remonstrated ; but the warrant for the hope that lie may be successful is a faint one. There is always hope that ordinary people may be urged to reform ; but when, after having reformed, they ' hark back,' the prospect is unpromising. The fact seems to be that we can transact our intercolonial business very smoothly and readily with every colony but that of Victoria. We could not agree with those protectionist statesmen respecting the ocean mail question or the Border duties ; and now the public is promised a d...
ASSASSINATION IN RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879
ASSASSINATION IN RUSSIA. The St Petersburg correspondent of Daily Ttkgraph sends the following occouut of an assassination which has recently been committed in Moscow, and which has caused much excitement in the city. He says: — 'The victim in this instance is not an official of the .ruisHutn oureaucrauc world, out is sufficiently well known in the social circle of tbe South Russian metropolis as to render the crime provocative of considerable comment, not to say in dignation and alarm. A young noble man named Bairaschewski was seated at home in his salon entertaining a few intimate friends. In the midst of a lively conversation the door suddenly opened, and there entered a young lady -named Pi-askowia Katschka, about 19 years of age, handsome and prepossess ing, a member, moreover, of a well known and noble family in the Wilna . , .district Perfectly calm and self possessed, she gracefully saluted the visitors present in the chamber. Then, drawing a revolver from her pocket, she . ...
BARON PLATT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879
BARON PLATT. ' A truly British judge,' he delighted to call himself ; and if a large and powerful frame, a jolly countenance, and a deep stentorian voice, are the qualities which distinguish such a being, Sir Thomas Joshua Piatt was happy in the possession of all those endowments. He had been a good speaker at tlie ?bai- rn London and on the home circuit, with, it was said, but poor legal acquire ments ; but on the bench he had the good fortune to be the junior judge in the Court of Exchequer, his seniors being Lord Chief Baron Pollock, with Barons Parke, Alderson, and Rolfe, four men of illustrious attainments, legal as well as general, whose judg ments and opinions Baron Piatt invari ably acquiesced in when presented to him, writing, ' I agree, T. J. P.,' on the manuscript, often without opening it ! ' It would be presumptuous in me to differ from — or even to read, with a hope of understanding them — the judg ments of such men,' we once heard him remark. Baron Piatt delighted to ...
MATCH-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879
MATCH-MAKING. An illustrated article on match-making, descriptive of Messrs. Bryant and May's works in Bethnal Green, appears in Hand and Heart. The paper concludes thus : — We may observe that the work people are by no means the miserable, emaciated, half-starved creatures some of our readers might expect to see. On the contrary they are, as a rule, stout, ruddy, and decently-dressed, and the younger children especially seem full j of spirit, thus confirming the statement j made to us that the method of manu facture is harmless, and does not affect the health of those engaged in it. At the same time, one cannot help re flecting on the monotony of employ- j ment which seems to characterise all factory labour. Fancy passing your whole earthly career in guillotining bundles of matches, and then cramming the contents into boxes ! Happily, however, as a make-weight even here, although we are to a very great extent the creatures of circumstances, we pos sess a power over circumstances. T...

TELEGRAPHIC LONDON, JUNE 2. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879
TELEGRAPHIC. JLondon, June 2. A treaty has been concluded between the British and the Portuguesse Go vernments with the object of granting facilities to the passage of British ( roops and munitions of war across the Portu guese territory in Southern Africa. It is expected that this will have an im portant influence in enabling the British forces to advance into Ziuiuland rrom the north, with the object of attacking Cetewayo from the rear. June 3. Tlie latest advices from the Cape to the 14th May state that the advance of British troops is delayed in consequence of the difficulty which is now experi enced in obtaining means of transport.

The agitation, ill-judged though it be throughout, and frequently unscru pulous, ou behalf of the Bathurst criminals, naturally leads to a considera tion of the arguments which have from time to time been put forward in favour of a Criminal Court of Appeal. Though, in the case referred to, there is abso lllfoiir nnfl..*nn. ts. 1. ? ? ? I *? — 'j -'«ig oven a pariiai caviller to the conclusion, that the verdicts were wrong, yet there are some convictions, and not' a few ac quittals, which point to the desirable ness of a new trial being made possible. In every capital charge, the prisoner is defended -by counsel, who will naturally cause any doubtful point to be reserved. But this provision does not encompass the whole of the difficulty. The essence of British law is justice tempered with mercy, and, while it is on. all sides acknowledged that no bar should be placed in the way of innocence, it fioust be admitted that it is injudicious to leave escape-doors open for guilt. A Criminal...
