WARS AND RUMOURS OF WARS. (New York Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 5 May 1875

WARS AND RUMOURS OP WARS. (Arao York Herald.) Tbo statement of the London Times, published yesterday, to tbe effect that tho armed condition of Germany ex cites alarm in Earopo, tbat " the momentary dreamsof peace have passed away," and that "Germany recognises the stern necessity, that what she won by arms she can bold only by arms and while arms aro in ber bands," is not a gratifying announcement for oar now year. We suppose the purpose of tbe Times's article is to stimulate public opinion iu England toward in creasing the Army and the Navy. But tho prospect is painful. It is a reflection upon our civilisation to see nations as rich and mighty and en lightened as Germany, Austria, Franco, and England straining every nerve, burdening themselves with taxes,_ in vading individual liberty and com pelling tbo conscription, retardiug education and national growth, fanning the spirit of distrust and enmity in the interest of ambition and power.

LIFE AT HIGH PRESSURE." (Birmingham Daily Oaztlle.) "Life at high pressuro." . It is an easy testj and though ;'tho Bubject'be already not quite now, it is none tbe loss easy to moralize on it j and in a paper read the other night at the Hoyal Institution, Mr. W. B. Greg, found plenty to say, and said much that was worth listening to. "It is ob viously true that the most striking feature of tbe present portion of this century is its constant hurry, and that this relentless haste is productive of ceaseless worry. It is not less true that it is a question which many of us would do well to consider, whether the maintenance of this high rate of speed is worth the price which often has to be paid for it—sooner or later. "Life seoms fuller and longer for tbe speed," Mr. Greg owns j but be asks, " is it faller and more effective ?" It is at least doubtful.

Centenarians are and bare been so scarce that Mr. Thorns, after scrutini sing the.evidenee in Bpmeoftbe most reli able accbuhtsof longevity, arrived at the conclusion that there was not n single instance of a human being reaching the age of a hundred the evidence in proof of which was not defective. This dic tum bas brought other inquirers into tho field who' have been more success ful, and soma cases hare been adduced the evidence of which has satisfied even Mr. Thorns. Tbo honor of having lived a hundred years is no doubt some times conferred where it bos not been earned ; bat, on the other hand, there aro'tio doubt many who pass -the cen tury about whom nothing ib known but that they are very old.

CUNGEGONG, COOTAMUNDRA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 5 May 1875

CUNGEGONG, COOTAMUNDIIA.   (FROM OUR- OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The works at the Great Southern Railway   have been retarded of late, owing to the wet weather prevailing, by which the men in the earth cuttings have been prevented from going on. Where the embankments are long, the   ground is too heavy for the horses to draw the Dobbins; but to obviate this difficulty     sleepers and temporary rails will be laid, and   waggons run as soon as they arrive. In the   rock cutting the men can make much better   time, being able to resume work when the     rain ceases. Between the Gap and Ross's | cutting, a distance of four miles, two other   parties are to commence next week. Between the Gap and in Cootamundra about fifty men are employed. This includes Siddons's five, two stone cuttings, and the brickmakers. The greatest number of men are concentrated...
