THE RAILWAY WORKS DISPUTE. SOMERS v. WILLCOCKS. A TEST CASE. FOR some weeks past there lias been an alleged grievance of a serious nature be tween Mr. Willcocks, contractor for the l/harleville-Cunnamulla extension, and some of the men vrho came from Bris bane- td work on the line. Three or fonr public meetings hare been held by the men, at which the matters forming the subject of dispute have been venti lated in plain, unvarnished language. The allegation made by the speakers at those meetings was that they were en gaged at 7s a day on daywork in Bris bane, and that when they arrived here they were (after having to wait a few days) offered piecework at Is 3d a yard af ballast getting, which they declined. Mr. Henderson, who engaged the men on behalf of Mr. Willcocks, declares that they were distinctly told at the time that it would be all piecework. So the matter stands, and, as Sir Lucius O'Trigger remarked, "it is a veiy pretty quarrel, and a pity to spoil it." At the Petty Debts...

THE CAUSES OF DECAY. Anatomical experiments show that the chief characteristics of old age are deposits of earthy matter of a gelatinous and fibrin ous character in the human system.

V PART L .That period of Tasmanian history between the death of Michael Howe in x8i8 and the disappearance of Alfred Pearce Id 1828 is about the worst in the history of Van Dieman's Land. From the foundation of the settlement in 1804 till the advent of Governor Arthur, twenty years later, the lieuten ant-governors of the island had not seemed equal to the task of maintain ing law and order. No doubt the task was a very diffi cult one-almost impossible in fact. Not only were the colonists a very dif ficult lot to keep in order, as they were lawbreakers of some sort or other, but in addition the governor-general in Sydney exercised a malificent sway over the destinies of the southern settle ment. He was supreme, and not being on the spot frequently authorised acts that were injurious to the public wel fare. , ' With the, modes of .communication which prevaile...
