FREE TRANSLATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879

FREE TRANSLATION. The Bishop visited London in the spring of 1811, and dined, among other places, at Lambeth Palace with Arch bishop Maimers-Sutton. The company and conversation were alike decorous, till the subject of dilapidations was broached, and the liability of the English clergy to build, and keep iu their parsonages, and of rectors to deal in like manner with the chancels of their churches, was dwelt upon. One of the party, an English dignitary bad travelled in Scotland the previous summer, aud was eloquent on the good old Scottish custom which devolves these burdens upon the heritors. He referred especially to a particular parish, of which we have forgotten the name, but in which, not the manse only, but the church also, had been entirely rebuilt at the expense of tlie laird. ' Oh,' observed Bishop Gleig, ' I know that parish well, and I will tell you how it comes to be so well provided with both kirk and manse. When I was a lad, tlie laird, who happened to be the Lord Advo...

THE SCENERY AT BAVENO. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879

THE SCENERY AT BAVENO. The long sweep of scenes includes a great variety of passages, in strong mutual contrast, yet forming one har monious whole. At our left we begiu with the tremendous granite quarries of Baveno and Monte Orfano ; then the beautiful opening of the valley leading towards the snowy Siinplon by ni-Af.ftr liH-.lfl lnlrA AT aror»7*n ? onH over this last the imposing line of hills called locally, ' i denti Hanuibali ' — Hannibal's teeth — why his, I cannot imagine, except it be frern the dread his name inspired even in regions he never reached. Then over the low lying green hill called Monte Rosso we get a glimpse of the sharp, square pointed peak Pizzo-Marone. Next, in the centre of the picture, come the projecting little hill and prouiontery of Castagnola, sheltering Pallanza. Be yond, over the distant town of Intra, with its glistening campanile, rise tbe hills of Cimola and Premeno, dotted over in beautiful fashion with villages and hamlets ; then away over the la...

SEVEN HUNDRED MILES INTO THE HEART OF CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879

SEVEN HUNDRED MILES INTO THE IIEA ltT OF CHINA. The first tiling that strikes one after getting fairly under way, and going twenty or thirty miles up the river, is the large population on the banks — regular villages or towns, extending ? ? i„ -u.. ? ? .. i.w,„L but miserable-looking affairs — no pre tence to either beauty or comfort, and not one of them with a chimney in a single house, or a window, but apertures which answer the two-fold purpose of letting in the light and letting out the smoke, but no glass. Upright willows iibouml everywhere in the vicinity of the river, but rarely any other tree, and not a vestige of a hedge or fence is to be found anywhere. The forts, which are numerous, and the large cities, are protected with high stone walls, .some times taking in a good stretch of country. In one case, the city of Nankin, our second stopping place, and originally tlie capital of China, the wall is forty miles in circumference. This was the great headquarters of the rebels ...

YOUNG LADIES OF THE PERIOD [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 7 June 1879

YOUNG LADIES OF THE PJlRIOD It is now many years since a well known writer delivered her sentiments on what she termed ' Tlie Girl of the Period' in somewhat forcible language. The special type of young lady described then has now partially disappeared, or has, at auy rate, sunk into a lower grade of society, and feminine fastness lias louiKl a ditferent mode oi expression. The condition referred to in the Sutvr day lict'ie.iv was only temporary. It was the transition period, when a desire for independence was stirring in the feminine veins, and when the male supporters of the sex plied it with men tul stimulants, until the burden of feminine slavery was discarded, and the freedom of women became the catching word of the day. So long as the Chry salis state, continued, one grub was much like another, girls and women merged their individuality in one com mon aim ; but as soon sis the shell was broken, dozens of varieties appeared in complete form, differing in type as completely as d...

' So,' said a lady, recently to a mer chant, 'your pretty daughter has married a rich husband ?' ' Well,' slowly replied the father, ' I believe she has m allied a rich man, but I understand he is a very poor husband.' Reputation is not, at best, easily attainable, and when sccured is gene rally the result of legitimate claims. The theory that reputations are achieved without justificatoiy grounds is a fallacious one. There must be some merit to win applause.

THE FESTIVAL OF THE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 11 June 1879

THE FESTIVAL OF THE HORSE. (Globe) The Mahommedans of Egypt, although they have not yet established either a ' Derby ' or a ' Grand National,' are nevertheless in full enjoyment of an annual solemnity called Doceh, or the 'festival of the horse.' A correspond ent of the Journal des Debats gives a circumstantial account of the manner in which it was performed this year, in the presence of a concourse of spec tators, native and foreign, almost worthy of Epsom Downs or New market. For the benefit of those who po not happen to know what is meant by the Doceh, it is explained that Mahomet was its original founder, and that the episode in his life which is thus commemerated occurred at the important moment of the flight from Mecca to Medina. The tradition given by the Debats is that the prophet was riding in all speed away from his enemies, and on arriving at a village called Yatieb, which was full of his adherents, found the population pros trated on the earth before him. How ever deligh...

THE IRISH AFGHAN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 11 June 1879

THE IRISH AFGHAN. The Thames Advertiser recently pub lished an extract from a home ex change giviug some parciculars relative to one O'Donnell, a gigantic Irish soldier, who, shortly after the Indian Mutiny, deserted from the British army, and is now an officer in the service of the Ameer of Afghanistan. On the Thames we have several old soldiers who served in India about that time, and were well acquainted with Sergeant O'Donnell. One of them in formed our reporter that he had known O'Donnell very intimately, and if he had been anything of a scholar he would have written and contradicted the statement that he was a deserter. Our reporter questioned the man, and from the story of the latter it appeal's that in 1856, O'Donnell, then a young man, was a soldier in the 57th (Faugli a-ballahs). He stood 6ft. 2in. in his stockings, and was considered the strongest man iu the army, throwing every Hindoo wrestler pitted against him. Wrestlers from all parts of the country were brought to co...

"OUIDA" AS A JOURNALIST. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 11 June 1879

' QUID A' AS A JOURNALIST. As though slie had not already afflicted mankind sufficiently, ' Ouida' has taken to journalism, and, the telegrams inform us, is now regularly installed upon one of the London journals. We take it for granted (says a contempo rary) that her peculiar intellect was turned loose iu the dramatic field of tbe police reports, and that the paper referred to now contains items some thing like this : — It was with a haughty, half-weary air, tbat Sydney Montressor swung past the cads that loitered in the hall of the hotel, ap proached the counter, and flung a .£10 note to the clerk. ' Here,' he said languidly, lifting from the rack a toothpick with his taper fingers — fingers whose grasp was gentler than a woman's, but the sinews of which were of steel. ' Here, sirrah ; give me the change for thiB bill.' ' Directly, sir,' cringed the clerk, and then, after inspecting the note for a moment, that official slipped behind the desk, and whispered a word to a porter, who...
