VICTORIAN ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 January 1894
VICTOEIAN ENGL3SU. Politics in Victoria just now being dull, and the Houses in recess, the public are discussing with avidity in the newspapers the question o£ Victorian pronunciation of English. The Chief Justice began the controversy, by pointing to inaccuracies and carelessness in pronouncing our language of which young Victoria is guilty. Some weeks have since elapsed, but correspondents of. trm journals ?till find plenty to say and plenty to differ about on the subject. For, while uome writers utter a wholesale condemnation of the young folk of the colony, others can Bee no wrong in their mouths. We are reminded of a controversy maintained a few years ago between Mr. Eiehard Grant White and some English magazine writers, about what the latter called Americanism^ Oce Englishman, a learned professor, said the word ' divine' aa applied to r. min ister or clergyman was American. Where upon Eiehard Grant White smote him hip and thigh with quotations from Steele, Thackeray, Dickens, ...

Echoes of Sport. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 January 1894

Copy of President's Minute to the Board. 8th January, 1894. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 January 1894
Cojnj of PrctiUcnt's Minute to the Board. %th January. 1894. Subject.— Survey of the City of Newcastle, and neighboring townships for Sewerage purposes, vide Mr. Surveyor Maitland s report. This is a very important subject, and cannot be liRhtly dealt with. Tlie papers now submitted speak for tnom solves. The Board must eooner or later be charged with the powers under their Act for administering the Sewerage oi the City of Newonfitlo, and later on tho suburbs. It is imnossible in Uin- interests nf Hanitntlon. nnd irotn an economical standpoint that the preBent il\- considered system of sewerage as carried out by the Council of the borough of Newcastle, can bo carried on much longer. I am surprised thnt tho Government have permitted the perr.iciouo practice of allowing sewers to empty into the harbour to the extent that obtains now, though it is only a small proportion. In a harbour such as Newcnstle, with a Tory limited area, it is ePBential that the value ol the dredging operations...

The Late Rev. Canon Simm. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 January 1894
The Late Rev- Canon Simm. (From a Correspondent.) Scarcely had we realized that; we had entered on a new year than the pariah of Baymond Terrace was inexpressibly shocked and grieved by the removal from amongst us by that inexorable creditor — death — of a familiar figure and tried and stedfasfc friend to all within reach of his benign influence in the person of our beloved nastor. the Eev. Canon Simm. Although the rev. gentleman had been preceptibly failing in health for some months past, the sudden ness of his death caused quite a shock in the community, and it seems almost impossible even now to realize aur loss and that we will never see his kindly face again or hear his cheery voice. Those who attended the watch, service on New Tear's eve and heard hiB earnest words, and at the close of the service felt the firm grasp ot his hand and. responded to bis kindly greetings and good wishes for the year on ?which we were entering, little thought that those lips were so Boon to be sile...
LATE NEWS BY CABLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 January 1894
LATE NEWS BY CABLE. The following messages appeared in the Herald of to-day : — London, Jan. 8. The French Government has received no official information regarding the attack by French troops upon the British camp at Warina, in West Africa. It is reported in Paris that the French Cabinet has decided to make an adequate amende if the British version of the affair be confirmed. The Inrencn newspapers display no excitement over the unfor tunato incident, and deplore the mistake that was made by the French. Prior to the 23rd December, the day on which the attack was made, Lieutenants Gwynn and Margeson, officers of the 1st battalion of the West India Regiment, were wounded in skirmishes with the Sofa natives. Speaking at a banquet at Capetown, Mr. Cecil Rhodes, the Premier, declared that if the Crown would not recognise its duties to the colonies the latter might deal elsewhere. The Daily News, in commentiBg upon Mr. Rhodes' speech, says that the Marquis of Ripon, Secretary of State fo...

The Stolen Diamonds. CHAPTER VIII.

None of the household are aware that Humphrey la now ab Brighton, following up a clue on to diamonds, and Valerie also— so he bulieves — there- fore it is all the more easy to make them think that I am going to iny husband — ah, is he re.illy my husband? No, no; I will put the fond delusion aside, and crush it out of my life forever. Nobody guesses that I am running away. I can not endure the shame of a disclosure, and having to go before them all. No, I cauuot bear it, and so I am running away, as I have said. I know nothing of the suburban districts, there fore I take a cab at tho terminus, and drive to the old Battersea and Scott's Buildings, which are re spectable, as I see at a glance, and, to my joy, the woman who answers the cabdriver'...

Coolgardie Gold Field. An old resident and native of West Maitlaud, Mr. Thomas Gray, who has had considerable experience in mining matters in New South'Wales, Queensland, and Tasmania, writing to hi3 mother from Coolgardie, Western Australia, under date December lGth last, says:— 'When we left Perth there were hundreds coming back from the gold field, and still there were nearly as many going up. They are making a railwa7 to Southern Cross, and we rode in the contractor's train to a place called Miriden, and from there we had to face two hundred miles to get to Coolgardio. We got our swags carried up for 30s by the. teamsters. It's a nice walk in the middle of summer over dry sandy plains. The Government have tanks sunk every. twenty miles. ?Some of the water is very thick, and scarcely fit for drinking. We arrived at Southern Cross after four days travelling. We had a good look at Deeming's house, which he had done up well._ There is a married couple living in it, but I don't think...
