THE SOURCE OF PERSONAL BEAUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

THE SOURCE OF PERSONAL BEAUTY. j A beautiful person is the natural form of a beautiful soul. The mind builds its own house. The soul takes prece dence of the body, and shapes the body to its own likeness. A vacant mind takes all the meaning out of the fairest face. A sensual disposition deforms the handsomest features. A cold, selfish heart shrivels and distorts the best looks. A mean, grovelling spirit takes all the dignity out of the figure and all the character out of the counten ance. A cherished hatred transforms the most beautiful lineaments into an image of ugliness. It is as impossible to preserve good looks with a brood of bad passions feeding 011 the blood, a set of low loves tramping through the heart, and a selfish, disdainful spirit enthroned in the will, as to preserve the beauty of an elegant mansion with a litter of swine in the basement, a tribe of gipsies in the parlour, and owls and vultures in the upper part. Bad ness and beauty will no more keep company a great ...

WHAT ART MAY COME TO. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

WHAT ART MAY COME TO. Perhaps an intermediate course will be the one actually taken in the future development of art. A more exacting and critical eye in coming generations may demand a stricter adherence to the colouring of nature in landscape and portrait, while it may retain some what of the older brilliancy iu purely ideal pieces. There is little likelihood of any ascetic rejection of colour on its own account. But when the rising esthetic school have reformed our houses in accordance with their own taste, it may perhaps happen that the public will find colour enough in its decorative appliances, and only demand the sntellectual pleasure of accurate imitation in its pictorial art There will perhaps be sensuous stimulation sufficient for every eye in the encaustic tiles the wooden parquets, the oaken wainscoting, the rich carpets, the deeply tinted tados, the light and brilliant wall-papers, the delicate table-covers, the chintzes, curtains, cushions banner screans, and antimacas...

THE PAINS OF PREACHING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

THE PAINS OF PREACHING. Perdrij ;, toujour* perdrix. ' Sermons, ; eternally sermons,' is the outburst of i an agouised soul, suffering from a I malady, created and fostered by that i necessity of civilisation, which assumes ! the form of submission to the voices of j the preachers. Sydney Smith was kept | awake of a Saturday night by auticipa- j tory regrets over the amount of twaddle i to be poured forth the following Sunday | from more than ten thousand pulpits. | A worthy man, unfitted for a time by i ill-health for preaching, but attending j church and undergoing a course of j sermons as a hearer, declared that he ! never knew before what anguish his j brethren of the laity had to bear. Even | tlie old Scotch dame, in a village in ! Ayrshire, inured by experience to the long-wiuded oratory of the kirk, stoutly I refused at last to listen to some 'bright ! particular star' from Edinburgh town, i ' Na, na,' quoth she, ' we are a: just | gospel-ridden.'

GARIBALDI'S LATEST PRONOUNCEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

GARIBALDI'S LATEST PRO | NOUNCEMENT. j ? i Not a little humiliating to our common nature (says the London Daily 'Jele g-aph ) is it that even the most re nowned of our race are liable to end their noteworthy careers in the dismal lest and most lamentable fashion. They either die prematurely or in their senility give evidence of the frailty which encumbers them. Perhaps it is that the gods, jealous of their fame, design to show that after all the spas modic sparkling with which their lives have been surrounded they are but human, capable of being as ridiculous as sublime, aud only wanting the oppor tunity to prove how vagrant is the in tellect which they possess. Were an example wanting, the letter which Joseph Garibaldi has addressed to the people of Genoa would be amply suf ficient. 'To the Citizens of the Superb' the aged agitator writes, and ' from his bed replies with emotion. ' Styling him self the ' Apostle of Peace,' he is good enough to announce that lie considers tranquilli...

WASP-WAISTED WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

WASP-WAISTED WOMEN. If the truth be fairly stated, women have many excuses for their infatu- 1 ation regarding small waists. It is Mrs. Haweis who says, 'The reason why a small waist is a beauty is because, when it is natural, it goes together with the peculiar litheness j and activity of a slenderly-built figure. All the bones are small, the shoulders and arms petite , and the general look is dainty and youthful.' I11 other words, a small waist is only a beauty when it is iu proportion to the rest of the figure. The common mistake lies in consider ing it a beauty in a large woman of massive proportions. . A few centuries ago women did not take a scientific view of things, and fell into delusions which in this age are a disgrace to tlje sex. They knew nothing of anatomy, of tho law of proportion or the curve of beauty, and they misunderstood the language of admiration. The latter. I suspect to be the root of the whole matter. Poets were everlastingly praising small waists, and women...

LATER FROM NEW CALEDONIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

LATER FROM NEW CALE DONIA. Correspondence from Noumea canie to hand on the 1 5th inst. The latest date is the 4th January. Uaonnoo, the chief of Bourail, offered to sun ender if his life and the lives of his followers were spared. At the time of latest advices he and 50 of liis men were marching with the soldiers, having undertaken to leaa tne military iorces to the retreats of the other rebels. It is said ou good authority that there is not a chief among tbe rebels who would not do the same thing if permitted, — even Cham, who was an accomplice in fearfully villainous acts during the revolt, aud is the most comprised of all who took part in it. The rebellion is virtually over, the insurgent natives being starved out and crushed. Their wounded are no longer cared for, but simply abandoned, as also are their women and children. Most of their firearms have been captured, and what ammunition they have left is useless. The missionary natives have tlie credit of having rendered important...

THE PROPER STUDY OF MANKIND. The proper study of mankind is — what 1 We know tlie answer of tlie line so quoted and requoted that it came to have that inscrutable quasi scriptural authority of proverbs and pet phrases, euliiil lowed by repetition, which makes contradicting a text. The proper study - of mankind, although Pope's line lias not yet been expnrgated from tbe list of quotational dogmas, is 110 longer « umu, but the globe man inhabits and its chemistry or zoology, for it has been widely made known among us as a discovery of recent days tbat wisdom is not ensured by the long learning and prompt forgetting of accidences, and that education should be a preparation for life. In the light of this discovery we are naturally all busy telling each other that school time should be spent in learning useful things, and that study should tend to the accumulating and the increasing knowledge of a practical ly serviceable kind ; and tlie popular inference from this piece of undeniable sa...

THE LACHLAN ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

'I'm: Laohi.an Election. From no point of view can Mr. M'Elhone's mission to the Laclilan be regarded as a success. He went to oppose Mr. Watson aud to support Mr. Maclean, and yet the effect of his journey was exactly the reverse of that which he intended. He nominated the Hyde Park politician certainly, but he seemed glad of the opportunity to mini- | mize Mr. Maclean and to magnify Mr. i Watson. Iu truth, lie acted as if the candidature of the former gentleman i was an elaborate practical joke.

CONTEMPT FOR BRITISH HONOURS AMONG INDIAN PRINCES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

CONTEMPT FOR BRITISH HONOURS AMONG INDIAN PRINCES. Keadiuis of liood may remember the manner in which, in his ' Ode to Rae Wilson,' the humorist describes the method of conciliation wliich, 011 tbe recommendation of a bystander, a butcher adopted with a recalcitrant sheep. ' Stringing his nerves like Hint, Tlie sturdy butcher seized upon the hint ; At last he seized upon the foremost wether, And hugg'd, aud Iugg'd, and tugg'd liini, neck and crop, I list nolens volens, thro' the open shop (If tails came 06', lie didu't care a feather), Then walking to the door, aud smiling grim, He rubbed liis forehead and his sleeves together : ' There ! I've ' conciliated ' liiin.' I fear this is the only kind of concilia tion that our Indian tributary kings quite understand. Tlie notion that we shall influence greatly men like Scindia or Oodeypoor. by presents and decora tions, is childish. - Oodeypoor is too polished and discreet to show openly his contempt for such honours as we may choose to a...

MACREADY'S COURTSHIP AND MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

MACREADY'S COURTSHIP AND MARRIAGE. His marriage, celebrated on the 24th June, 1824, at old St. Pancras Church, is the next import rut event to be re corded in his life. Whilst starring at Glasgow in 1815 a pretty little girl of about niue years of age was sent on to play a child's part in an old drama called 'The Hunter of the Alps she had not been allowed sufficient time for study, and was imperfect ill the words, for which he severely scolded her. Five years afterwards he met her again at Aberdeen, where she was his Virgir- ia on the opening night. 'She might,' he says, 'have been Virginia herself. The beauty of her face was more in its expression than in feature, though no want of loveliness was there. Her rehearsal greatly pleased me, her acting being so uiuch in earnest. There was a native grace in her de portment and every movement, and never were innocence and sensibility more sweetly personified than in her mild look and speaking eyes streaming with tears.' He learned that y...

LADY NURSEMAIDS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

LADY NURSEMAIDS. I Although it ia only at intervals — yet with painful iteration — tbat the com plaints against domestic servants, and against the carelessness and cruelty of nursemaids to their young charges, find vent in the newspapers, the evils com plained of are ever present, and have come to be excepted in many quarters as chronic, and being past remedy have to be endured with all the patience which can be commanded. Some well meaning philanthropists imagined that the Lady-Help movement would have diminished these domestic annoyances, but it is hardly in tlie nature of things that it should do so, for in large house holds the Lady-Help can only take the place of the mistress or housekeeper, and in small one the difficulty of finding persons willing to help the Help only reproduces the servant question in an aggravated form ; and although it has been suggested that the proper sphere for the Lady-Help lies in the nursery, as head nurse or superintendent, yet this again only appl...

Dew of the Alps. — The tonic aud vitalizing properties of this agreeable vegetable specific have been fully tested in all various climates of Australasia, aud the universal opinion of our people seems to be that it is tbe finest tonic, the most reliable restorative, and the surest preventive of all epidemic aud endemic diseases that have ever reached us. To Messrs. M. Moss and Co. we are indebted for our first acquaintance with this appetizing cordial, with which they are now supplying the market regularly, though scarcely in sufficient quantities to meet the urgent and soarcely in sufficient quantities to meet the urgent and constantly increas ing demand, The ' Dew of the Alps' dates back to the 15th century, when the aromatic herb to which it owes its wonderful virtues was discovered. It has been the national tonic of Switzer land ever since Switzerland was a nation. — Adv.

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

Victoria. White's flour mill, at Wangaratta, was totally destroyed by fire at 2 o'clock ou Tuesday last. It is insured for £2000, principally in the Victoria Company. The origin of the fire cannot be accounted for. The mill was erected 22 years ago, being the first mill iu the Ovens district. An influential meeting of Scotchmen was held at Melbourne on Tuesday, to | take steps to aid the efforts of the General Committee iu Scotland to raise a fund for the relief of the shareholders ruined by the City of Glasgow Bank failure. A strong committee was appointed, with Sir James M'Cnllocli as chairman, to collect subscriptions. With regard to the harvest iu the north of Victoria, the Argus of Thurs day states that the reports from the rust-infected wheat districts show the calamity to oe very serious. jlub scourge is to be seen from Echuca along the dividing range right up to Albury, and it is estimated that one fourth of the wheat-producing area of the colony is destroyed.

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. THE GOVERNMENT POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. The Government Policy. Sir Henry Parkes promises an Electoral Bill, and, when alludng to the futile opposition to which he was subjected, he , gave some grounds for believing that the new Electoral Bill will include a pro-vision which shall have the effect of stifling any but bona fide opposition. Of one thing we may be sure. U nder any otner government the University would have lost its member, but of this there is now no possibility as Mr. Windeyer is Attorney General. So far as the Chinese question is affected by the strike of the A. S. N. Co.'s seamen, it is at an end, since, by mutual concession, the men aud the Company are again reconciled. The Chinese question has however, been too pointedly brought before the community for it not to bear some fruit. Sir Henry Parkes and his colleagues are evidently determined to restrict Chinese immigration within narrow limits, but Sir Henry plainly sees that it would be absurd to think of total prohibition ; nor, we ma...

The obituary of tlie Gentleman's Magazine for 1733 contains an account of the funeral of Mr. Joliu Underwood, of Whittlesea, in Cam bridgeshire. When the burial service was over an arcu was turned over the coffin, iu which was placed a small piece of white marble with this inscription : XON OMNIS MORIAK. 1733. The six gentlemen who followed him to the grave sang the last stanza of the Second Book of Horace. No bell was tolled, none but the six gentlemen invited to the funeral (and no relation) followed the corpse. The coffin was painted green, and the deceased lay in it with all his clothes on.
