SWEEPING THE STREETS. A RUSSIAN ADVENTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Times and Tumut, Adelong and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 29 May 1869

SWEEPING THE STREETS. A Russian Adventure. I have found that teetotallers are interested in knowing why I bocamc one of their num ber. Therefore, as the circumstanco which led me to adopt their principles was a somewhat remarkable one, I have the pleasure of satisfy ing their curiosity by the following narration. It is already familiar to my own friends ; but. [is it has never yet appeared in print, it will bo entirely new to others. Ten years ago, when I was three-and-twenty, I was tutor in the family of Lieutenant-colonel Polinczko, a Russian gentleman, at St. Peters burgh. He was called lieutenant-colonel, though he held no military rank whatever. It is the custom in Russia to obtain military titles by paying certain sums of money, or as rewards for services performed to tho Govern ment. My patron was a little, inoffensive individual, who would, have fainted away at tho mere sound of a gun ; and yet, whenever he appeared in the fashionable society of the capital, no was certain t...

THE FOREIGN COUNT. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Times and Tumut, Adelong and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 29 May 1869

THE FOREIGN COUNT. (PROM THE NEW YORK ROUND TABLE.) That sort of social flunkeyism on which the satirist of 'Vanity Fair' lavished his fiercest sarcasm — the uncontrollable tendency of little people to fall down and abase themselves at the feet of great people merely because they are great, is not confined to tho dear British public thai Thackeray dissected so keenly and so delightfully. Tho good old Anglo-Saxon stock changes its skios but not its spirit in crossing sea, and the transplanted graft of todyisin flourishes a3 vigorously in republican America as in monarchial Britain. To be sure our cousins across the water have advantages in this lino that we lack, in the possession of a titled and hereditary aristocracy which always presents peculiarly suitable objects for plebeian worship. Rulers we have, indeed, whom we are fond of holding up as the peers of any rulers in Christendom j but, somehow, they do not seem to make good idols at all. Wo remember that we set them up, and tha...

PIANOFORTE PLAYERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Times and Tumut, Adelong and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 29 May 1869

PIANOFORTE PLAYERS. (BY A YANKEE IN THE MUSICAL WOULD. ) It is a groat mistake to suppose that piano forte playing consists of the knowledge of music and in the dexterous manipulation of the fingers and wrists.. There are some people who seem to play all over the moment they seat themselves before the instrument. Their bodies, from the roots of their hair to tho extreme joints of their toes, all contribute to tho performance. To watch such persons playing you would naturally conclude that the X-innoforto is tho most oxacting of all instru ments. And so it may bo, perhaps ; though to onr minds wo frankly confess that the trombone appears to us more exciting. For if it does not require the feet — like the piauo, it demands the breath ; and though it suffers yon tho privilege of assuming any attitude you will — you must sit to play tho piano — it compels into apparently torturing animation whatever latent vitality your face may happen to possess. But why a person should think it requis...

TUMUT. (fkom otje correspondent.) May 27th.— Monday, being tho Queen's birthday, was observed as a public holiday in Tuinut, and our townsfolk entered with great gleo into various exhilarating pastimes. I . may say, indeed, to adopt a stock newspaper phrase applicable on this occasion, that never within the memory of the oldest inhabitant hnvo such loyal demonstrations and such harmonious universal merry-makings been ' witnessed hero as prevailed on that day. In tlio* morning some fear was expressed that the weather would damp the fun for the day, and ? during the forenoon a few drizzling showers occurred ; but tho sun ultimately struggled tUvough the clouds, and the afternoon turned out all that could bo desired. The attendance, at tho sports was very good considering the somewhat unpropitious weather, and although the heavy rain on the previous night had made the ground . rather slippery and greasy the proceedings were spiritedly carried on. It is true that among the crioketers an...

May 27tii. — Tho weather has become fairly wiutcry, being cold and rainy, and as a conse quence colds and influenzas are rather prevalent, many children being thus affected, and some ' grown up people being confined to the house by these maladies. According to loyal custom we had Athletic Sports on the Queen's Birthday, which went off very well. I do not send you a detailed account, but content myself with stating that the programme was conscientiously carried out, and that tho competitors were all local except in the foot race for 200 yards, for all comers,- when Davis, of the Qilmore, measured ? his swiftness with that of J. Fallon, and was beaten. In the evening we had a grand display of fireworks, which greatly delighted .. our juveniles and even interested those of more mature years. ? As regards more serious local matters I may Btate that there is no question that Adclong is going a-hoad. Now dwellings, or places of business, are fast risin...

CORRESPONDENCE. I We do not in any way hold ourselves responsible for, or identified with, tie opinion! expressed in out correspomenti column.'] OUR RIVERS. TO THE EDITOR. Sin, — I think I made it pretty plain in my lost that there is an absolute ncoessity to purify tho creeks that havo become defiled by the sludge carried with them from alluvial diggings. Wo know very well that the average yearly earnings of the alluvial gold miner is not large, and it is needless to ask him to cleanse tho water after it has served his purpose and before ho has turned it into its original channel. It is then clearly the pro vince of Government to take that expense on its own shoulders, or remit the tax on alluvial gold, bo that the miner might do it himself under Government super vision — always providing the remission would meet the expense. I do not pretend to havo sufficient scientific knowledge to propose a scheme which would effect the cure contemplated, I would merely throw out an idea. Any o...

The charges against Patrick QiJiNJr that wore heard at our Court-house during the last and the present week, show how squatters and farmers are frequently victimised by members of the* too large semi idle class who loaf about townships and smaller rural . centres of population, following no regular employment, and diversifying their occasional spells of honest labour by the surreptitious appropriation of their neighbours' property. In the case we refer to detection speedily followed tho commission of the offences ; but, unluckily, depredators of this description often escape scot-free, or run n lengthened career of dishonesty before justice overtakes them. Their knowledge of the district they infest gives them an opportunity of picking up such, horses or cattle as a...
