FROM a quarter to ten on Friday morn- &lt;*> ing till nearly four in the afternoon the representatives of the Singleton Cricket Club were locked up in a railway carriage en route for Tamworth. , What sort of martyrdom they must haTe suffered may be imagined when it is remembered that Friday last was one of tha hottest days ever known, 108 deg. in the shade being a common reading on several thermome ters.

IT is perhaps proper to suppose that the action of those who manage the affairs of the British Empire are guided by wisdom and prudence; and that - wliea inaction.is the prevailing order of .things, it is because inaction is held to be tbe beet policy for the interests of . the nation at large.

Don't Shilly-Shally. [Newspaper Article] — Singleton Argus — 5 January 1881
Don't Shilly-Shally. ?Sew York Herald. Thkrb is an anecdote told of Wendell Phillips which it will do onr yonng men no harm to remember. It is said that hie wife, though a confirmed invalid, has always been an encouragement and an inspiration to him. When about to leave her nek chamber to make 6ome stirring speech she was wont to say to him, " Now, Wendell, don't shilly shally." How much this has had to do with his incisive and never uncertain utterances it might be hard to say. The words, however, shape themselves into a motto not to be forgotten. Whether you are engaged in the active business of life or indulging in the precarious luxury of making love; " don't shilly shally." In this peculiarly advanced age, when "things aTe not what they seemwhen we adulterate everything from food to religion, when the word shrewdness is received as a sufficiently accurate synonym for honesty, the great want is that uprightness and down rightness which means what it says and says what it means. ...

It is the hardest thing in tho world to remember historic intervals of time, to be fully conscious that Rome took as many years to master, the shores of the Mediterranean as have elapsed between our time and the Crusades, to recollect that the old' Paganism. was more cen turies perishing than have passed eince the Reformation, to remember steadily that it was nearly eigh teen hundred years before men saw that Christianity and slavery were irreconcilable, or that there most exist some morally right proper- | tion between offence and punishment.
