Horrors of War. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884

. Horrors of. Waa?., At Antietam, the Irish Brigade had fought with desperate valour, and was frightfully decimated. As it passed sullenly from the field was presented a sight that capped the climax of horror. A member of that devoted brigade was aimlessly «tumbling round with both eyes shot out, begging some one, "for the love of Qed," to put an end to his misery. A lieutenant of the Fourth New York was petting by, and seeing the poor fellow's condition and bearing his appeal, he halted before him and asked if he really meant what he said. "O, yes, comrade," was the reply. "I cannot posssbly live and my agony is unendurable." Without another word the officer drew his pistol, placed it to the victim's right ear, turned away his head and pulled the trigger. A half-wheel, a convulsive gasp, and once more unfortunate had passed over to the silent majority. "It waa better ..thus," said the lieutenant, replacing his pistol and turning towards bis men, "for the poor fellow could--" Just t...

THE WEEK'S EVENTS. A New Disease. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884

THE WEEK'S EVENTS. A New Disease. For the niillionth time,: the French Academy of -Science offer 100,000 franca-aboot that number of tenpences-asa reward for. the man who will find a core , for Cholera: That shows how hard the medical men are stock, to find ont whether a sick man hadn't better be left alone , than dosed. The thing that is the matter with men will have to be shelved awhile, until we find what is the matter, with medicine. Machinery and the like progresses day by' day. Nobody disputes that a new pump will pump, or a new Sewing machine will sew, but the difference or opinion of "doctors will differ," has passed into a proverb. Why should the differ more than: others ? . We come down to the miserable conclusion that it is possible for a profes- sion to be so learned that it won't learn. Medicine is sick.

Political. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884

Political. The British Parliament viii meet on October 23. Fiji has offered to pay her share of the £15,000 wanted over the federation and annexation business, and compliments Mr. Service on his vigour. So have the other colonies. We are deeply diplo- matic, and say nothing. The masses are waking up with regard' to rank and riches, and asking themselves two plain queries. The first is, why title should be exempt from the law of reform and alteration which affects everything else ?-and the second is, the reason the steady accumulation of wealth should only make the few well to do, and leave thé workman, the wealth-producer, generation after generation sunk in the same sorry and shameful gulf of want? For- tunes of millions in 1884 are as common as fortunes of ten thousand poonda in 1784, yet the artisisao is if possible, even poorer and worse off than were the artificers of the eighteenth century. The clerical party in Belgium, one of the most Catholic of countries, gave the Liberal ...

City Residences on the Ocean Beach. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884

City Residences on the Ocean Beach. There doubtless have been thousands all over New South Wales and Queensland, on the look out for some time past for an announcement which has just now "has been made with regard to Marine Building Sites in the metropolis of Sydney. That announcement has now been made, and it's not surprising to hear that it has attracted very wide attention. While, thousands of acres of doubtless very good land have been sub-divided and sold in the railway suburbs of Sydney, large areas of magnificent land in the Marine suburb of Manly Beach have been quietly awaiting enquiry. This land has now been taken np and sub-divided on a liberal plan, and ita charm is ita beautiful situation. It will delight very many people who have had a successful struggle in country parasita, and whose experience has been one of hot dry weather, and very often impure water to hear that they have now a chance of securing a capital seaside residence in one of the prettiest, healthiest, a...

THE BIGGEST CITY LAM) SALE IN ALL AUSTBALIA:> . . !. GLIMPSE OF THE TWILIGHT OF AUOTBAXLAJI HISTORY, i . j THE BOUNTY MUTINY-ABBEST OF BLIGH IN SYDNEY. There ia an announcement in the Sydney papen, which win fix Ute attention of hundreds. of thousands of people on opening pages of the Australian History. It is anani aouncement which briags the public mind back once agaiU to the dawn of personal liberty and. political freedom in Australia-to an event which shaped the whole future of Australia, and which therefore concerns every colony in the group, and every town in every colony. - The story of the af ntiny of the Bounty is well known. In 1780, Captain Bligh was despatched from England in the ship Bounty to the South Ssas to obtain breadfruit trees for the ' British possessions in West India. The incidents of his voyage form the most romantic page in modern history; His crew rose in mutiny against his harsh rule, and the. mutineers getting command of the vessel, turned Bligh and e...

Swift Steamer and Railway Communication. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884

Swift Steamer and Railway Communication. ;!!It is an undoubted fact that AnsttrsHais daily reaping substantial results from theestablishmentof the swift ocean-going line of steamers ; and just as 'these powerful monarchs of the ocean realms bring the big cities of the'group-within speedy reach of the European manufacturing centres; so does railway communication now bring the moat distant country districts within reach of the ship- ping ports, extending to the whole country the bene- fits conferred on the cities by swift ocean-going vessels. This can be said with more particular emphasis of -Sydney and the New South Wales dis- tricts, than of any other colony of the group. . The great free-trade port is the terminus of alli the principal ocean steamers, and the fiscal system places at the hand of everybody in the colony thc richest, choicest, as well as.the most substantial pro- ducts of the cultivated industry of Eurone. There is folly a hundred large import houses in Sydney, demons...

Cream Onions.-Many people, who can- not eat onions in the usual form, would enjoy them prepared as follows :-Boil in two waters and drain ; pour over them a little «Htiflíng milk ; set over the fire; add a spoonful of butter anda Itttls cream; season to taste and serve hot.

Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884

Miscellaneous. Another case of small-pox in Sydney. The new Silverton paper is aptly called tile SILVER AGE. There are 50 French convicts prowling around Sydney. A new silver rush has broken oat seven miles from Silverton. The Victorian police are likely to find the murderer of Ah Goon. King Humbert of Italy has visited the cholera patients. James Paton, 28, a farmer, of Goulburn, rode against a telegraph post and was killed. Marquis de Bays' appealed against his four year's imprisonment hut without avail. The late L. H. Officer's will leaves £200,000. Canon Stephen, a smaller gun, left £2566. The Czar drove through Warsaw in an open carriage. This does not look mach like fear of the Nihilists. Charles Howard, Crookwell, and George Gale divided the champion prize at the Goulburn ploughing match. There have been terrible floods on the Mainawata Biver, N.Z. Vast damage has been done. It is said some Melbourne capitalists are about to start a new evening paper in Sydney. There is ample...

Killed by Parsimony. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884

Killed by Parsimony M. de Vandille was the most remarkable man in Paris on account of his extreme wealth and avarice. He had been a magistaate at Boulogne. He literally adopted the old maxim that the " seeds of wealth, the half-pence and pence, may be compared to seconds of time, which generate years, centuries, and even eternity itself." In 1735 M. de Vandille, possessed upwards of seven hundred thousand pounds, which he had got or multiplied upon the body of a single shilling, from the age of sixteen to the age of seventy-two. Having overheated him- self one summer's day in carrying home a load of   fuel, a fever ensued, and he for the first time in his life, sent for a surgeon to bleed him ; but thinking his terms exorbitant he proposed a bargain to a common barber surgeon, who undertook a vein for threepence a time. "But," said Vandille, " how often will it be requisite to bleed ?" " Three times said he." "And what quantity of blood do ,you propose to take?" "About ...

The Black Agony. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884

The Black Agony. South Australia and Queensland are arming against the blacks, the original proprietors of this continent. Our dark brethren have been spearing people and cattle, and the cry is revenge. It opens up a curious speculation, and one which has been looked into by many thinkers to little purpose. ' It is no less than whether it were not better either to destroy the blacks at once or to catch them all and ship them out of the country, say to France, where they might earn an honest livelihood by throwing the boomerang or spearing sheep for the amuse- ment of that pleasure-loving race. And it would be a genial return for the unasked favour of her Caledonian gentry who have just called to leave their card. Mission stations do no good. Our rum is more appreciated than the Bible, and yet when we go out into the wilderness to graze cattle or hunt for gold we don't want our pluckiest pioneers made spear cushions of by the old original pro- prietors. What are we to do? They are en...

A Note for Country Readers. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884

Á. Note for Country Beaders. Hiere is probably no city in the group worse served with regard to good family hotel accommodation than Sydney, and never was there greater need for reform in the great majority of the hotels of the nsttropolis than at the present time. The old style of hospitable house has completely disappeared from sight, and from one end of Ute city to the other there i* karoly a hostelrie of the stamp; of those met with ir'all our large inland towns. The cetnmon ex- perience of people arriving in Sydney by . train of steamer, is their beian; directed to hotels either en- tirely removed from the beemese centre, or other- wise so unsuited to liie general wants in regard to figure and accommodation, that a visit to the big city is an event that ia painfully remembered. Doubtless this explains the small number of visits made by country residents to that metropolis. In one hotel, however, in Sydney,, has definite effort been made, and made with success to cater for the i...
