ROMANCE IN A RED COAT. [FROM THE HOME CHIMES.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 2 January 1886

BOMANCE IN A RED COAT. , Bt Paul Benison. [fbom tub hoste chimbs.] It was that \ery enjoyable moment to tho people oí the house when a highly successful patty has just con- cluded. The l:iii was one oí a, series Lady Woodbridge hud whimsically called her " Spectre dances," tor the guests, liku ghuß'vS, were expected to vanish at d ty break-which, as Puck informs us, is the canonical time for them to do so. This, under the fiction of a restraint, the party was kept well together through the night. It « as past the middle of May, and the sun rote just about tour o'clock; and so, at the ooouiiug of a sonorous pendule, the Laud suddenly struck up the National' A.nthem, and, by a pre- concerted loweriug of lamps and open- ing of windows, an artificul confusion was created, and a merry hurrying and hiding took place, as ii light were detected; and in half an hour's time (for the pat ty was choice rather than crowded) the last carriages were leaviug the door of the old family mansion in Cu...

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. MELBOURNE, Dec. 16th. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 2 January 1886

i 0U# MELBOURNE LETTER. w ,^ Melbourne, Dee. 16th. The lamented death of Sir Peter Scratchley, brought on in the discharge o£ hiB duties as High Commissioner of British New Guinea,(elotes another page in the history of- our dealing with that country. Victoria has a special interest in this melancholy event, mainly because of the long association of the late Major General ¡Scratchley with the work of our eoast defences, ana in a minor degree be- cause he had mad* Melbourne his tem-, porary home. When he started, only a few weeks ago, on his trip of inspection of the newly acquired territory he left Lady Scratchley at their residence at Balaclava, one of the bay suburbs of the metropolis, and it was from there that the publie funeral took place today on the arrival of the Governor Blackall on Mon- day from the North. It had at first been intended by Lady Scratchley to bai e the remains of her husband embalmed and taken for interment to England, bat friends warmly dissuaded her ladyshi...

A Strange Disintcrment. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 2 January 1886

A Strange Disintcrment. Some twenty years ago, a Chinaman I named Yen Lern hung himsef in the , Chinese camp at Ballarat, owing to heavy gambling losses. His body was buried in the Chinese cemetery, where it remained till the other day. It appears that a cousin of the deceased, named Wee Too, lately obtained from the Government permission to exhume the bones of his relative, in order that he might convey them to China for burial with due honour in the family vault. About a month ago, the grave was opened in the presence of the sexton and several celestials, and the remains were taken out. The man who performed the j task, addressing the skull in his own i language, informed it of its intended trs »sport to China, where it would be happier than it could possibly be in a laud of Franks. The bones, as they were taken out, were placed in their proper positions on the ground, the Chinese, it appears, believing that not eveu the delightful anticipation of its return to its native land wou...

Temperance. Notes on Temperance Work. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 2 January 1886

Jiotes on Temperance Work. During the past year the various temperance societies in and around Perth have been very busy, having added a large number of members to their ranks. Special mention may be made of the two Good Templar lodges of Perth, who have each an average attendance of between 30 and 40 members at their weekly ineetiugs, which are made both interesting and instructive by the songs, readings, and recitations which follow, after the usual routine of business is concluded. Their success in organising aseries of fortnightly conceits during the late winter months was all tiiat eould be desired, and had the effect of inducing a great number to become members. A Juvenile Temple is in course of forma- tion, the charter having already been sent for, and the success of which is guaranteed by a large number of juveniles having promised to become members. The formation of a Graud Lodge is under consideration, and a committee has been appointed to take the necessary steps, by comm...

CARDINAL MORAN'S PASTORAL. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 2 January 1886

CARDINAL MORAN'S PAS TORAL. ! FEOM^THE WEST AUSTRALIAN] Dr. Moran's pastoral, delivered at the close of the late Plenary Council, is not a document which publicists can afford to pass unnoticed. The formal utterance of the first Cardinal Arch- bishop of Australasia, put forth on such an occasion, influencing the minds of hundreds of thousands of our fellow-colonists, is of no small importance. We have had occasion, ! more than onee, to criticise Cardinal Moran's action somewhat adversely, succeeding such a man as Dr. Vaughan, his bas been a difficult game to play, and he has not always played it wisely. It is safe to say, that had Dr. Vaughan been spared to his adopted country, he would have secured a position of commanding influence. Of him, it might with truth be affirmed, that he grandly illustrated one meaning of the saying that "blood will tell." An aristocrat of aristocrats, the product of the best culture of many generations, he pos- sessed the very highest characteristics of...

WHO WILL HODGE SUPPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 2 January 1886

WHO WILL HODGE SUPPORT. To know whom Hodge will support, observe what measures he approves of. Whether it is a political meeting, with Hodge all alone in hit glory, and a " teamster " on the platfrom ; or a mixed meeting of workman, agricultural labour- ers, and petty farmers ; a declaration for free schools and a sweeping laud reform is sure to be welcomed with vociferous cheering. It is the same with all the measures of the Radical programme. 1 None are better acquainted with Hodge's feelings and opinions than are certain classes of canvassers whom the political agents have been sending out into the country districts. We allude es- pecially to persons who are in the employment of insurance companies, and whose ordinary avocation of collecting small sums necessarily brings them into contact with the poorer classes of the rural population. These men make first rate canvassers. What is their general testimony ? Just this-that Hodge is not a Tory, nor even a Whig, nor even a Liberal, ...

Herald:-Captain ¡verillsaid it was rather embarrassing for him to.return thanks for the very handsome manner in which they had received the members of the expedition before know- ing actually what the expedition had done. It would be difficult for him to give, in reasonable time, a satisfactory résumé of their operations, but in due course these operations would be fully described. The whole of the party was extremely grateful for the great iuterest taken in them, and especially also for the despatch of search parties for their relief from every quarter. He went on to give an outline of the voyage. On leaving Sydney the Bonito experienced rather heavy weather, which caused her to remain tor a fortnight at Thursday Island.

When they entered, the Boyal patient again and agaiu deprecated the alarm and the effect tiiair visit would cause in the capital. Unceasingly King Alfonso requested that nothing should be done to alarm his people or damage the credit of Spain. After the consultation he lemarked, " But 1 must be worse when they do all tins." He was not yet aware of the eutire gravity of the situation, aud at nightfall the Royal family took le:.vo of him appar- ently to return to Madrid, b...

TBE JOURNAL OF MAJOR-GEN BRAL C. G. GORDON, C.B., AT KARTOUM. (Reprinted from the Sydney Mail,) Novxhbxb 11. This morning:, 6 a m., 200 Arabs came to nerth of Omdurman Fort, and fired volleys towards the village of Tutti and the Fort ; the Fort answered, and the footmen of the Arabs then retreated ; the Arab horsemen made the footmen "go back again, and so on, four or five times ; at last they retired. We had three soldiers and one woman wounded ; only one wound was at all serious. Arabs must have fired 5000 rounds ; evidently they do not wish much to fight. Nineteen Arabs came along the right bank of the White Nile from Half ey eli to Goba, and captured a don- key, this even the Shaggyeh could not stand, and so I suppose 100 sallied out and some 15 horsemen ; then came a running fight across the plain, but it was evident the horsemen would not head the Arabs ; however, from the roof, it was evident four or five Arabs were killed, and the pursuit is still going on.

OUR LADY'S LONDON GOSSIP. ?* I see that Lady Bective ie carrying the banner of the Primrose League into all parts of Westmoreland, where Knights and Dames Chevalières are now to be met with in every cottage. Habitations flourish at half-a-dozen places, and the associations at Orton, Ap- pleby, and Kirkby Stephen await consecra- tion. Lady Horberton, too, had a great - meeting in London lately of one hundred Primroses, to whom, co the story goes, she doled out Primrose League skirts.

THE END OF THE BEKKY SEßVIOE ADMINISTßATION. ! FEOM THE WB8T AUSTRALIAN J For the last fire years Australia has been experimenting on the virtues and drawbacks of coalición Ministries on a large scale. In South Australia when Sir William Morgan resigned some years ago, Mr. Bbat, the leader of the oppositiou, in order to form a cabinet, added a few of the most conspicuous of his own party to the chiefs of the old one. Then came the compound government of Sir John Eobertsok and Sir Henry Parkes in New South Wales. This was followed bj the coalition between Mr. Service and Mr. Berry in Victoria. And lastly iu New Zealand, a combination was effected at the instance of Sir Julius Vogel out of the Hall, (Jrev, and old Vogelixe parties. Of all of these the last named has been the only pronounced failure. Both Air. Bray's Ministry, and that spring- ing out of the Parkes-Boberibon compact achieved some useful legisla- ture. But neither of these succeeded in winning the confidence of the coun...

Why She Wanted a Kiss. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 2 January 1886

Why She. Wanted a Kiss. | " Kiss me again." Sibyl Sartorious spoke these words in a grave calm manner that betokened the seri- ous import in which she held them, and as Herbert Holdfast bent tenderly forward and pressed his lips softly to hers, she looked up to him ia the sly, cat-on-the-back-fence fashion, that had bo witched him in the golden-huod days of courtship. There was no tint of deception in the pure nature of this girl, and her every act was the result of refieotion, often profound. Brought up in Boston, Bhe had all her life been accus- tomed to put to ita best use the power of dis- cernment which a thoughtful mind gave her. Surrounded as she was by the mystio in- fluences of Emerson, the Concord School ot Philosophy, and several large warehouses where mackerel were sold, it is small wonder that when, standing on the threshold of womanhood, she beheld suitors for her heart and hand approaching, she had analysed with critical care the hope and fears of each-had subjected t...

Over in that country the people do not have as muoh re- spect for the titled aristocracy as in some other localities on tho Continent. One day this nobleman came rolling up to a country tavern, and, as he stopped his carriage, he called out in an imperious tone " Horses, landlord ; horses here at once." I " I am very much pained to inform you, my lord, that you will have to wait some time over an hour before fresh horses can be brought in," replied the landlord "How!" violently exclaimed the nobfe man, " this to mo ? My man, I demand horses at once." Then, observing the fresh and sleek-look- ing horses which were being led np to another carriage, he said " For whom are those horses ?" " They wore ordered for this gentleman," answered the landlord, pointing to a tall, slim individual a few paces distant. " I say, my man," called out the nobleman to the...
