SYDNEY BOUDOIR GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 23 February 1894
SYDNEY BOTJBOIH GOSSIP. [Bt Zara.] During Lent we can scarcely be expected to re cord local functions of a very exciting nature, still I attended a garden party last evening at the Bar racks, which although not wildly entertaining was exceedingly pleasant. The two tennis courts in front of the mess rooms make a lovely sweep of green lawn, and there in the bright moonlight ladies and gentlemen in evening costumes promen aded and listened to the delightful music of the Artillery Band. The handsome uniform of the New South Wales Artillery, and the officers of a German war ship now in the harbour, adding considerably to the picturesqueness of the s?ene, and the glanc ing throng gained a softening beauty in the lovely moonlight. The lustre of white satin was intensi fied, and the softer shades of blue and pink were charmingly contrasted by the warmer tones of ted. and ruby. Some rich black gowns in velvet or satin made an effective setting for tho wearers charms, and dresses of fairy - l...
A COWARDLY CRITIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 23 February 1894
A CCWABDIT CRITIC, Ma. Hindle has occupied far mo«e of the attention o£ th» Assembly and tbe public this week than be is worth. He . combines the office of preacher with that of legislator, it appears, and adorns oneoffiee just as conspic uously as he ennobles the other. Last Sunday preaching at a harveet thauktgivmg festival at Lithf»ow he ascribed the hii dranees offered in Parliament to the temperance cau»e progressing to the preeenue iii the Assembly of some notoriouu -Jrunk-?n blackguard*. He cried shame on the electors who tvould rote for some licentious drunken brute be cause he held the snme opinions on certain qnestione. He had been a eye- witness of so much drunkenness on the part of the old politics! clique that he felt bound to speak out. Good legislation could only be obtained from men of honest, clean, and sober lives, bufc the men now foretnoat iu framing laws were great at underground engineering, and in buying voteB. One of the foremost members of the Asaembly had t...

DISTRICT NEWS. OSWALD. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 23 February 1894
DISTRICT NEWS. [From our Correspondents.] OSWALD. The Gbape Harvest. — At the beginning of the season we made it our business to visit and inspect the above verdant little oasis by the river, and at that time, it will be remembered, we were able to give a glowing account of the forward condition of the vineyards of the place, and to hold out high hopes of a prosperous harvest for the vignerons there. It was but a dream, however ; a mirage of the imagi nation that melted away with the advance of the summer, and left only disappointment in its Btead to reward the industry of the husbandman and the lavish hand of nature. We were down there again on Wednesday, and in a conversation we had with Mr. A. Harman we learned that his grape crop at least has been a dismal failure, and that the crop barely paid for the labour of harvesting it. Mr. Harman had, at the beginning of the season, over eight acres under grape vines, and at that time a more beautiful or promising vineyard would have bee...

Whf-n the petition for winding up the Greta Collieries Company came on in Equity to-day, Mr. Kuox applied for a further postponement till Tuesday. He stated the terms of settlement were arranged, and only awaited a cable from London to be confirmed. The application was granted.

Sir Charles Napier and Mrs. Serjeant Rowe. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 23 February 1894
Sir Charles Napier and Mrs. Serjeant Kowe. In the snmmer of 18G4 I was despatched by my employers to New York. The event was an impor tant one. I have, in my sketches of the ' Bar and the Press,' referred to this journey, which was undertaken by the Government of the day for the purpose of capturing Miiller, tho murderer of Mr. Bribers. During the voyage I struck up an acquaintance with one of tho officers of the crew, an intelligent fellow, the expression of whose face told me, as plainly as face could tell, that he had not spent the major part of his life in crossing the Atlantic. There was a restlessness about the eyes which seemed to have the power of looking every where at once. There was withal an openness of manner which convinced me that whatever vicissitudes he had encountered, the dual virtues of lonour and eourage were not lacking. His face was bronzed with the heat of warmer climates than England or Cousin Jonathan's Home ; his eyes were darkblue and piercing in their ga...
