ROUND THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 5 July 1884

ROUND. THE WORLD. -4-- BiY A 1'OOTSCRAYAN ,At length came Australia-"The Sunny South," as the Australians in London fondly term it. :The nmrning -we first saw it off Cape Leouwin tllere wasa heavyswell onand that was the only time wie had any atitusing upsets. All were seated on the quarter-deck comfor tably reading, or sewing, or playing drafts or chess, whei an unexpected lurch launched them from one? side down to the railings and whilst the other side were laughing at the awkward spills she reeled back and it was their turn to hang on or go. There is nothing like a good roll to make some ftm on board ship. Then came Albany, which we reached alsout one 'a.m. on Sunday morning. Thq signal gun was just oer .our cabin and I felt it easier to be on deck when it was fired, so I lost most of' that night's rest.

THE LOOKOUT [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 5 July 1884

THE LOOKOUT " Look out downthlie, for I'm abou_ to shoot." VANooo POoT. The vexed question respecting the issue of a publican's license for the Pier Station at Williamstown, was the sub ject of a field day at the court yester day. Mr. Purves with all his well-bred bouncability failed to convince the P.M., that the -Borough Council and majority of residents did not know what would be good for the publican, and that a few shipping reporters and agents knew what was wanted for the good and welfare of. society, much better than the residents did. There is just the shadow of suspicion that the evi dence of the gentlemen referred to might have been influenced by the idea that they were the public who required alcoholic refreshments within the in terval between the trains, which is only half-an-hour. I ant sorry for the gen tlemen, but would suggest that if their systems require artificial aid during the half-hourly interval, arrangements might be made for a peripatetic vendor of artificia...

Cricket Club Bazaar. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 5 July 1884

Cricket Club Bazaar. After many vicissitudes and a deal of work and worry on the ladies part, the eventful opening day arrived, bringing its own cart load of drawbacks. The lion. Dr. J. G. Beaney, who had been selected for the post of honor-the opening-had proved that even doctors are not safe from the ills that flesh is heir to, as he was confined to bed and could not attend, and the services of Mr. W. M. Clark had to be secured at the last moment. A ball in the hall on the previous evening threw the carpenters back with the work of erecting the stalls, and as a consequene delayed the la-lies; but they are good tempered and bore the infliction. Then again, a few minutes before the auspicious moment Jupiter Pluvius shed favors that would have been welcomed at another time or elsewhere. Such being the case beyond the stall-holders there were few sight-seers, when Mr. Clark was formally introduced by the captain (Mr. English) and accompanied by the President. AIr. Clark said that whil...

BACHELORS ASSEMBLY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 5 July 1884

BACHELORS' ASSEMBLY. TO TtIR EDITOR OF THE INDEI'ENDE.NT. SIts,---I notice in your issue of last week, under the heading " Not Nice," sonme rather dlisagreeable remarks about the " Leap \'ear Quadrilles " in the last Blachelors' Assembly. Permit me through your colutnls to correct your reporter. His assertions about the behaviour of the ladies and gentlemen on 'hat evening must have been in press befoire the dances camne off, otherwise he would have seen that they passed off very merrily and almost all joined in them in the spirit in which they were given. It was never intended that the ladies should go for the gentlemen or otherwise put themselves out of place. The Leap Year arrangements were sitmply inserted in one evening's dance as a novelty of fun, and in that spirit I .think they were enjoyed. In ,Yngland, as your reporter states, they are very. common at private parties, and always properly carried out. Now, we claim the right ;of inviting, those who come to our assemblies ; ...
