"Until He Disgorged." IN the long pending insolvency case of Samuelde Young, late of Port Adelaide, merchant, Commissioner Downer, of Adelaide,characterised the insolvent's cotidnct ns' the grossest case of fraud that ever camo undor his notice.

Why Don't Men Marry? [Newspaper Article] — Singleton Argus — 25 December 1880
Why Don't Men Marry? Melbourne Bulletin. WHY are the young, the tender, and the beautiful at a discount ? The effect is apparent, nor need we search far for the cause. It is the spirit of the time, the new relations that, of late years, have sprung np between the youth of opposite, sexes-—relatione which in them- selves are harmless and in some measure productive of good, but which are deal ing a gradual though sure death-blow to those warmer sentiment? which Pre looked upon as the budding of orange blossom, and the mainspring of social intercourse.

Scissor Snips. (From the papers.) [Newspaper Article] — Singleton Argus — 25 December 1880
Scissor Snips. (From the papers.) "A thin figure is ever more poetic than a stout one"; and M[?]le. Bern-&lt;*> hardt is thin beyond all peradventure. She is, indeed, of such immaterial ness that her attenuated figure is a stock subject for the professional jesters of Paris.. It is said, for instance, that she once escaped from robbers by .hiding behind her riding-whip. It is said again that, in her early career a manager refused to engage her, alleging that he would not havo in his theatre a woman who could enter his office through the keyhole. But the utmost height to which this rather thin wit has gone as yet is the assertion that one evening an empty carriage drove up to the Theatre Frangais, and Mdllo. Sarah Bernhardt alighted from it." There is a vast difforeuce between coquetry and sociability—a difference which should be hotter understood-than it Jβ at present. , The Bulletin says: " The organist at; Yarra-street, Geelong, has learned two fresh voluntaries.
