SYDNEY, GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.[ [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 7 August 1869

SYDNEY, GOSSIP., [FltOM OUItOWN COniiESroNDENT.] I DO not oxaotly know what prcoise' doscrip j^ion of pleasure tlioro may bo in stirring up old ltumour and greasing lior many tongues for the purpose of spreading about a some thing which--to my mind Scarcely seams probable. It has been stated (confidentially, decidedly) that a vory largo ship-owner of this city is about to composc his creditors' minds and lessen their troubles and their pockets at tho same time by a vory extensive application of the white-washing brush. The amount which he is supposed to wipe out iu the operation is stated to bo butweontwo and three million pounds starling.. You know what Echo generally answers. Well, where rmnour resides thoro is a magnificent echo,, for it always answers by .multiplying by ten. Thoro is ono thing to be said, and that is if a person takes to invoicing something,, le.t it be a good'un. Talking of invention, I must tell you that we can now boast of a weekly production called tho " Ill...

PIKE'S REEF. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 7 August 1869

PIKE'S REEK SOME disputes having arisen at tills promising gold-field, Mr, Commissioner Clarke visited the ground on Monday last, for the purpose of settling them. The first case gone into .was that of Clarence v. Fennell. The dis pute arose from Clarence having " jumped " Mr. Fennell's share in a claim, 011 the ground that he (Fennell) was without r. miner's right. Mr. Fennell, however, producing a miner's right dated two days previous to the jumping, the case was decided in his favour. The next case was Fennell v. Nelson and party. It appears that Nelson and party took possession of a pieco of ground forming part of a five-acre lease previously taken up by Mr. Fennell, but of the existence of which lease they were ignorant. Some time afterwards, Fennell gave them notice to quit the ground, which they did.. They then ascertained when Fennell's lease expired, and ' two days after its expiration they again took possession of the ground. It being proved that Fennell had failed to comp...

RUSSIAN PROVERBS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 7 August 1869

[RUSSIAN PROVERBS. The Scotch and the Spaniards have hitherto divided the credit of possessing the largest store of proverbial wisdom; but were the literature of Bussia more widely known, she slight prove a formidable rival either to the land of oatmeal or to that of oranges. We have often regretted that none of the great native authors should ever have thought it worth their while to make a systematic collection of the pithy sayings which are so familiar in the mouths of their countrymen; but, fortunately) the writings of Gogol, who excelled all his contemporaries as much in knowledge ef national life and manners as in humour and imagination, form almost as comprehensive a dictionary of Russian pro verbs as Cervantes1 great work of thoBe of Spain. A large proportion of these maxims are couched in rhyming couplets, in order, doubtless, to engrave them more easily and indelibly on the popular me mory ; but their pointed terseness, their quaint, homely vigour, and dry Sancho Panza sat...

A SINGULAR MARES NEST. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 7 August 1869

A SINGULAR MARES NEST. A story of a mysterious package is now going the round of the French, journals. A few days back a wagon belonging to the Orleans Railway Company might have been seen to stop on the Pont d'Arcole ; two men who accompanied it appeared to consnlt together for a moment, and then, after looking round in all directions as if to satisfy themselves that they were not observed, they took from their vehicle a wicker basket carefully closed, which they launched over the parapet into the Seine, and then drove rapidly off. A man engaged in fishing below the bridge had, -however, observed the act, and having got the package to land, opened it and found it to contain fragments of flesh, amidst which he thought he could distinguish a human leg. He took the basket to a commissary of police, and a medical man being sent for decided that the contents were human remains out up, and in an advanced state of decomposition. The police naturally supposed that they were on the traces o...

Some where about mid-afternoon the Unas began to assume a size and appearance out of all proportion with its usual character. Instead of the blulf bare rock rising neatly at right angles from the sen, it had tho appearance of a huge castle, surrounded by a giant cau-eway, seem ingly fifty yards broad, and a a compactly Macadamised as any court-yard.

TWIOFJ SUED ANJJ THEN MARRIED. In the Small Debt Court, Dundee, last week, the hearing ii an action for the recovery of money expended hy a family for the maintenance of a female who had l.idged with them revealed, how a marriage had taken place under circumstances very unusual. A man tome what advanced in life became tmmoured of a youDg woman, to whom for ^ome time ho paid his addresses, and ultimately promi>ed inairiage. He, however, de parted from the promiso ho ma<!o, and was sued by the injured lady. He had to pay £30. A second time he came under the spell, from which he had only been able to extricate himself by pecuniary aid. Ho declined, however, to be caught, and abandoned the lady a second time.
