CABLEGRAMS. LONDON, FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 20 August 1886

CABLliHRAMS. LONDON, Friday. It is reported from Romo that an official intimation has been convoyed to the Pope to the effect that at the recont meeting of tho Emperor of Germany and tho Euiporor of Austria, a long consul tation took placo between the two potentates relative to tho present posi tion of tho*Roman Catholic communities within the dominions over which tho two monarchs rule. What tho substanco of tho communication was has not been kr. K.,f h, »l.„t it is of a gratifying nature, as his Holi ness is reported to have sent an autograph communication to the two Emperors conveying to them ' our thanks.' Tho representative of the Evening News had a long interview to-day with a prominent French deputy, in reference to the occupation of the New Hebrides. Tbe French representative was somewhat gusirded.in his remarks, but from what he did say it is undeniable that the French regard their occupation of the New Hebrides as permanent.

This was the amount sued for.

Canadian-Pacfic Railway. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 27 August 1886

Canadian-Paclic Railway. . Three years ago (says the Home News) no one knew where the Pacific terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway was to be placed. Vancouver was the stat ion selected, and on June 28 the first through train on the great transcontinen tal line left Montreal for that port. The line is thus actually finished, and will very shortly be opened for traffic. All difficulties have been successfully sur mounted, ' and if Canadians have not miscalculated the future their hew line will soon repay the money laid out on it, besides opening out new and profitable routes for British commerce. Another great stride forward also has been taken towards federation, and while shallow statesmen would risk the disintegration of the Empire, our stout Canadian brethren are making it manifest that they, at any rate, were never believers in such mischievous doctrines. They are in truth the possessors of a noble heritage. Their coasts border on two oceans, their provinces are prosperous an...

The European Outlook. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 27 August 1886

The European Outlook. Our cablegrams this week show that there is a considerable amount of uneasi ness in Europe, and that the capitals, are again astir with rumours of impending trouble. The feeling of anxiety, if not of alarm, is heightened rather than allayed by the Imperial meeting at Gastein. The absence of the Czar is freely commented upon, and is even regarded as indicative of the extinction of the Triple Alliance. Presuming this to be the case, the out look is both gloomy and ominous- Rus sia has decidedly not co-operated very heartily of late with her fellow-members of the Triple Alliance, and they can hardly be pleased to note ' that leading Muscovite journals are permitted to advo cate a Franco-Russian alliance, and to learn that M. de Freycinet, the French premier' contemplates an interview with M. de Giers, the Russian Chancellor, on an early day. It is doubtful, too, whether the latter's explanation of the Czar's utterances at Moscow and in the Crimea has given entire ...

A Pack of Cards. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 27 August 1886

A Pack of Cards. I 'Ws have beon shown by the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Fosbery, a pack of cards most ingeniously marked for the purpose of cheating. The cards were manufactured by a well-known maker Delarue, but after reaching Sydney were cleverly manipulated with fraudulent intent. They had originally dark red backs, which have since been ornamented profusoly with gilded scroll work and foliage, which is used as a vehicle for the fraud. Taking the four suits — clubs, spades, hearts, and diamonds in succes sion — it is easy to explain how the cards aro marked. It may be said that when once tho distinctive marks are pointed out, there is nothing required but practise and a quick eye to enable a player to read his opponents hand by watching the cards as they are dealt, or by inspecting the backs of them during the game. There are two marks on each card, one showing the suit to which it belongs and the other its value. Begin ning according to the order named with the clubs, and...

The Melbourne Hospital. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 27 August 1886

..The Melbourne Hospital. The Daily Telegraph's Melbourne corres pondent says : — The Melbourne hospital is now on trial for its life. Three alleged deaths from blood-poisoning contracted within its walls have given the city cor oner an eagerly-embraced opportunity of holdingan exhaustive inquiry into its sani tary condition. The result is a general concensus of opiuion that the existing building is too murderous in its propen sities to be allowed to live any longer. Dr. James, the late Governor's favorite medical adviser, was the least hostile of the witnesses examined this week, but even he expressed a desire to see the present hospital demolished in order that a better one might be established on the same Bite. Dr. Robertson, another high authority, gave it as his experience that the recovery of patients was retarded in some cases, and entirely prevented in others, on account of the insanitary state of the hospital. He went straight for the destruction of the existing building, t...

"How to Increase Crops In Field and Garden." [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 27 August 1886

'How to Increase Crops In ~ Field and Garden.' Tills was the subjcct of a lecture recently delivered at tho Technical Col lege ;? Hall, Pitt-strcot. Mr. Mackay, instructor in Agriculture to the Board of Technical Education, was tho lecturer, and commenced by showing how all healthy plants must breathe and feed in much the samo manner as other livinir thing?.' By the roots much of tho nourishment of crops was taken up, but that nourishment must bo in tho liquid State, and it must be eaily accessible to the plants, otherwise they suffer. By means of the blackboard Mr. Mackay illustrated how the leaves of plants absorb air, oxygen, carbonic acid, &c. Scientific observers differed very considerably re garding the proportions of nutriment plants got from the air ; but both scien tific and practical men were agreed that the leaf had to be maintained in a thrifty, healthy condition, otherwise parasites, both vegetable and animal, attacked the crops. Sufficient cultivation and plant...
