The Turks. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 25 August 1877

The Turks. Tire " Cologne Gazette " publishes some extracts from the diary of a lady at Con stantinople relating to the preses*' state of affairs in that city. It is scarcely possible for a European, she says, to conceive the distress which prevails among the Muhoin medan population of the Turkish capital, or tiie noble patriotism with which it is borne. All'the able-bodied men ore sent away to serve as soldiers'without pay, and their wives have to support themselves and their families on a daily wage of two piastres, whim is the current rate of woman's wages, while the price of bread is now four piastres the oke (about 3 lbs.). Among the higher'classes, too, many families used to live entirely on the dividends of Turkish stock ; the incomes derived from this source by inhabitants of Constantinople alone amounted to about £4,000,000. . These families ure now entirely ruined, and others, though not absolutely destitute, have suffered immense losses. People go about from batik to bank...

These two, like the sun and rain in tho fable, struggle for the mastery, and as they mix with each other a great deal of disturbance in the atmosphere takes place, which is generally increased when, a storm occurs, by the magnetic cur rents of the earth being in unsettled con dition. ' These two bodies of air gradually begin to whirl round and round, and the movpment spreads to the surrounding bodies of air, and .thus a circular storm is produced, which rushes round at the rate sometimes of a hundred gailes, ah' 'hour,- all the 'while travelling"iii the '^rectiou- that the wind is' blowing at the tiinfe.

Thc Drought. THE terrible effects of the drought iii the western districts of Naw South Wales are thus stated by the Canonbar correspondent of the ' Dubbo Dispatch ' :-We are ex periencing a drought unprecedented in its severity, and this beautiful neighbourhood is now transformed into a fruitless waste, producing neither glass, herbage, nor any other vegetation to support the impoverished and dying stock- with which the district now abounds-dead and dying in every directions.

Ho reinindad the House of Homo of the mora prJiniueut aud important of those defeats, and contra (ted the inertness and wavering policy of tho late Government on the subject of railways with the promptness with which tho present Government lind acted.
