A NEW PRONOUN WASTED. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

A NEW PJJO^OUM WA-'TJiL-. A witiTi;n iu the ?' Contributor's Club iu tin: current number of the Atlantic .Monilil/i makes the following lively observation ou ;i difficulty which every writer who pays any attention to literary style has 'often* felt: — 'We want a new pronoun. The need of a personal pronoun of (he singular number ami Miniinoii geixler is so desperate, urgent, i|i)]),ur.iii j-e, i Ik, i iicoording to the established theorjet, it should long since have grown on our speech as the tails grow on i lie monkey.

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

LICHENS. Lichens runs through the whole chro matic scale, and show what striking effects Nature can produce by an har monious combination of a few simple lines and hues. Most of them are of a | quiet, grey tint, but some display the most vivid colours. One species covers j trees and rocks with bright yellow powdery patches ; another sprinkles thein with a kind of gifeen rust, es pecially in the neighbourhood of large towns. Almost every old wall, castle, aud rocky sea-shore is emblazoned with the brilliant deep yellow rosettes of the common wall parmelia. Olive-green and pale primrose-yellow lichens di' versify tbe surface of moorland boulders and dykes. And what is very remark able, the higher we ascend the mountain side, the farther north we penetrate, the brighter beanies the colouring and the more graceful aud luxuriant the form of lichens ; presenting in this respect a parallel to many flowering plants, such as the birch, whose stem is whiter, aud whose leaves are more shining ...

RELIGIOUS EQUALITY IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

RELIGIOUS EQUALITY IN AMERICA. To a Nonconformist travelling in America, one of the freshest sensations arises from the absence of au ecclesiasti cal establishment. In England I am reminded wherever I go tbat the State is hostile to my religious opinions and practices. Diocesan episcopacy, in my judgment, deprives the commonality of the Church or many ot tlieir rights, ana releases them from many of their duties ; bbt in every parish I find an Episcopal clergyman who, according to Mr. Forster's accurate description, Is a servant of the State. Though I am a minister of religion, the civil govern ment has placed me and my family under the spiritual charge of the vicar of Edgbaston ; that excellent geutleman is my pastor and religious teacher. I am not obliged to hear him preach, but the State has thought it necessary to entrust him with the duty of instructing me in Christian truth, and celebrating for my advantage the Christian sacra ments. The doctrine of baptismal re generation see...

MR. DISRAELI AND HIS TAMPERING WITH THE ROYAL. PREROGATIVE [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

I MR. DISRAELI AND HIS TAM PERING WITH THE ROYAL 1 PREROGATIVE. ! Mn Djsjukli's great 'occasion' arrived with his second premiership : but a short opportunity was afforded in LSGf\ and he did not let it slip away unim proved. It is a circumstance which has perhaps escaped notice that he had not been Prime Minister two months before, to use a word which was j employed in debate, he ' besmirched'' tlie name ot the y«een with the mire of political controversy, aud provoked a storm over the royal prerogative. I11 the month of April the Government were twice beaten by majorities of 60 and 'i.l ou Mr. Gladstoues Irish Church resolutions, a question which they had raised by avowing their Irish policy. Mr. Disraeli saw the Queen and this is what appeared from his explanations to the House- He represented to Her Majesty that he and his colleagues were entitled to advise a dissolution 011 personal grounds, but that, if Her Majesty preferred it, they were willing to resign. They neither resign...

CARDINAL MANNING ON IN TEMPERANCE. In seconding the principal resolution at the annual meetiugof the United King dom Aliance, held recently in Man chester, Cardinal Manning spoke as follows : — He said he was confident that 110 man could come amongst them that night to preside ovev thein who would bring with him greater augury of success iu the future than Professor Smyth. He was glad on that, first oc casion, after many years, iq be able once nioi'fj to lift up his voice iu union with the United K ingdom Alliance, and to say that his silence hitherto had not been of his own free will, but had been due to events which he had been unable to control, for every year that had passed over his head had deepened his conviction that the present legalised state of the liquor traffic was prolific of inexipubtiljle Gyjl, ;|pd, that there was 110 remedy for tjiis )jut ill that which Wilfri4 Lawson had enunciated — the free wi}l, yoipe, and vote of the English people.

BIBLICAL CURIOSITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

BIBLICAL CURIOSITIES. j Among the relics of that olden time there are preserved Biblical curiosities which deserve a passing notice. We remember examining, many years ago, in Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, a fine specimen of the ' Biblia Pau perum,' of wliich a few copies only are to be found in the present day, iu very rare collections. It consists of rude j plates representing Scripture figures and ' incident5;, with a few Latin sentences explanatory of the work. The work is printed from wooden blocks, in the way | in which playing cards were laara- j factured — a curious art, which was applied to the production of books of a religious character, such as the ''Speculum Humana; Salvationis.' These block books Mr. Hallara con siders were executed in the Low Coun tries, but probably some of them found their way into England at an early period. They belong to the first half of the fifteenth century, and were pre cursors of nobler productions, whose appearance in tbe latter half of...

COUNTRY-HOUSE SNAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

COUNTRY-HOUSE SNARES. The country-house season i.s just com mencing, though, 110 doubt, many people are away ou the Continent, or exploring lands hitherto untrodden by the tourists who sail under the banner of Cook. Here and there, however, the charms of wood-shooting as a preliminary to the buttues of December, to say nothing of cub-hunting, have sent many men to country quarters ; and where the golden youths are gathered together, there will the girls of the period also muster in full force. It would have seemed ex traonlinary to our grandfathers and grandmothers, as it does to old fogies among us, that the woman should be the huntress rather than that the man should be the huut-*r : but in these days we have changed many things, and among the rest the relations of the sexes have been, socially .speaking, re versed. It would bo easy to point a moral with reference to this subject, but it would be idle ; we content our selves, then, with endeavouring to adorn a tale with a very bri...

WITH THE SWALLOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 18 January 1879

with: the swallows. Autumn is drawing near, the leaves begin to fall, and those who dread the colds and fogs of an English winter are preparing to flit with the swallows. And it may assist some of our readers who are thinking of ' flying south ' if we give them some little information respecting some of the principal health resorts of Enrope. For those who do not obiect to the long and expensive j journey which must be taken to reach the south of Spain, there is much to i recommend it Malaga, in particular, j offers peculiar advantages as a whiter i station, but tbe hotel accommodation is very inferior to that of most places in France and Italy. The climate of the south of Spain is far more equable than that of the south of France or Italy ; i it is less liable to sudden variations ot' temperature, and there is comparatively little of that peculiar chill at sundown which is so injurious to invalids who i are imprudent enough to expose them- ? selves to it. j The choice of a winter h...

Wi; are again approaching tlie date of the municipal election, and so far no thing seems to have been done towards ascertaining what the retiring aldermen have done daring their term of ofl'ice to entitle them to the renewed confidence of the ratepayers. It is to be presumed J that tlie gentlemen who quit office lmve i not vet exhausted their patriotic efl'orts, I and wilJ probably otter themselves for re-election. It may not be remarkable that municipal laurels should be lightly esteemed by the residents — so lightly in fact that upon .several occasions the Government lias been compelled, through lack of candidates, to nominate gentlemen to fill the vacant scats at the Council-board. But it certainly is unfortunate that so little interest should be felt by the ratepaj'er.s in our muni cipal progress.
