SYDNEY SMITH AT HOME. (Truth.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

SYDNEY SMITH AT HOME. {Truth.) It would be difficult to give an adequate j idea of the gaiety and charm that Syd ney Smith infused into the society as sembled around his breakfast table. He would come down into his long, low room in the morning, like ' a giant re freshed to run his course,' bright and happy as tlie scene around him. 'Thank God for Combe, Florry,' he would ex claim, throwing himself into his red arm-chair. ' I feel like a bridegroom in tho honeymoon ! Saba, glorify the room !' which meant that the Venetian windows were to be flung open, display ing the garden, and letting iu a blaze of light and sunshine. The room was surrounded on three sides by books ; not dark, dull-looking valumes, but all in the brightest bindings. He used to say : ' No furniture is so charming as books, even if you never open them, or read a single word. I hate bare walls, so I cover miue, you see, with pictures. Look at that sea piece. The moon in the corner was rather dingy when I first bough...

FEEDING THE HUNGRY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

FEEDING THE HUNGRY. (S. M. Herald.) The relative conditions of the British and the Australian workman have not infrequently been the subject of com ment^ and the advantages which the latter enjoys over the former become occasionally so conspicuous that too much attention can scarcely be drawn io them, in tne nope tnat tne more tne working men of the colony are led to think of the benefits accorded them the less likely are tbey to become the dupes of individuals who agitate to promote strikes and disorder. The late strike of the carpenters at the Exhibition Build ing was condemned by the public on all sides, principally because it was re garded as a most unpatriotic and unfair attempt to secure an increase of wages at a time when the Government, being pledged to have the building completed by a certain date, the men believed they could obtain anything tliey cared to demand ; and if the public had been fully aware of the extensive arrange ments which almost from the beginning of the w...

PASTORAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

PASTORAL NOTES. The erection of a shed for show-sleep will be commenced upon the Pastoral Association's Grounds in a few days, Mr. John Gray's tender (£335) having been accepted. The building will be roofed with iron, and divided into 64 pens of 6ft. by 4ft. each. The dimensions of the shed are 60ft. by 40ft. wide., . . - a , n, v ( We have seen a telegram fnotn Melbilume. announcing the averages of his cattle to a gentleman resident in Gippsland as follows : ' Trucked cattle averaged £7 10s. 7d. ; travelled, £7 10s. Sd.' It will therefore be seen -that the travelled cattle beat the trucked cattle by Id. per head. It may be observed that the cattle were cot out on the station and then equally divided, the cattle to be driven to market being started on the road. The balance were afterwards trucked at the railway station, within a mile and a half of the paddocks, and both lots of cattle stood side by side in the Melbourne yards, when the reiult of the sale came out as stated in the te...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Tar Pavements. — The tarred pavements, now being laid down by Messrs. Gore and Johnson, in different parts of the town, are undoubtedly a great improvement upon the bricks hitherto used for the footway. This will be readily conceded by any one who has stood on damp bricks for five minutes upon the shady side of the street. The dampness has an unpleasant habit of rising through the impartially through one's system, viewed fron fc practical staudpoint this may be an excel'frit thing for tbe nearest publican, but in otl tr respects it is unsatisfactory. Tbe tar p:jreinent laid down in front of the Bank of NJw South Wales is, to all appearance, wuiifiQ and durable, notwithstanding the many experimenting boot-heels that have been sunk in it heavily, and twisted round iu it curiously. Of course, the pavement has not yet stood the crucial test of summer, but there is no reason to doubt that it will, under any circumstances of beat and cold, be equally successful as iu t...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

' Pardon is still the nurse of second woe.' As a rule, the fact of our fellow creatures' lives being spared by the interposition of mercy, gives unqualified satisfaction ; yet, connected with the re prieve of the Bathurst criminats, there are many circumstances which will cause keen regret to all who respect the laws of tlie land in which wo live. Of those who appealed for mercy towards the wretched youths, some, doubtless, were actuated by the purest benevolence ; others, again, possibly based their ad vocacy upon a mild view ol' the offence ; but with the majority, the case merely formed a peg on which to hang political animosity. It is very terrible that such should be the case when the commission of a horrible crime has demanded the forfeiture of human lives. Yet such it is. The claimants of mercy have suc ceeded in their efforts, and no one will withhold praise from those who entered disinterestedly upon the task. With regard to those who sympathised with the crime, or used the...
