Queensland Stock Movements and State of the Country. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

Queensland Stock Movements and State of the Country. (Quccnslandcr, January 20.) I The wot season may be said to have begun this week io most parts of the colony, and pastoralists and others whose prosperity depends directly upon tho weather are satisfied with the prospect that lies bofore them. In some of tho northern districts where dry weather has prevailed for a long time copious rains have been experienced, assuring at least one more good season. The Wide Bay and Burnett district has had almost too much rain, 8in. being the record for a few days. With last year's experience fresh in memory tho inhabitants of tho country along the rivers have feared a flood, but happily their expectation has not been realised up to the present. In the far north-west, although the amount of rain that has fallen has been slight and somewhat patchy, the prospect is more encouraging than it has been for some time past. Cooktown, January 13. — Heavy rain fell here to-day, and is still falling. Mattow...

Sporting ISTotes and Notions, j [Bt tub Vagrant.] A remarkable coincidence in connection with the Itaehill meeting is that the brothers Delaney— W. and J.— were first and second in the Nursery Han dicap, whilst tho brothers Gough — John and James —occupied similar positions in the Flying Welter.

But doubtless, when the justice of our claim was seen, the franchise would be granted without :!any screaming from the sisterhood. Letters like those of 'Romeo' (wherefore 'Romeo?') unintentionally do more to advocate our claim than anything wc can say for ourselves. Let us thank him also. A WORKING WOMAN. Jan. 21, 1394.

LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

LOCAL NEWS. Former Socialistic Communities. — Writing ibout the reported unfit furnishings of New Aust ralia, the Argus says This ' New Australia' is not the first or the hundredth or the thousandth experiment of the kind that has been made. In the earlier half of tho century, when Fourier was the Socialist leader, and when his teachings domi nated many ardent reformers, special settlements were tried in great numbers, especially in America. In Great Britain the most conspicuous leader in the movement was Owen, who founded small communities within the United Kingdom. Each settlement was to be self-dependent, to provide it self with .all its requirement?, to set up its own standard of education, and to have the power of distributing its wealth amongst its members. But these communities had only a lingering existence, and tho stream of English development swept over them and put them out of sight long ago. In America innumerable colonies were formed, some based upon peculiar religious...

His Last Shot. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

His Last Shot. ' Git down on yer knees, ye lazy hound 1' ' Don't be so 'ard on a poor man. I've been on my knees for four hours.' No, he need not have been so hard. For, heaven knows, the old man's lot was hard enough ! And his blistered and aching knees could have told how hard was the deck, and pleaded piteous excuse for tho seemingly heinous crime of keeping his feet under him while scrubbing it. But then, you see, there was something harder than either of these in tho breast of the Yankee mate, and when glass, be it ever so hard, meets the diamond— well, it breaks. So, the shivering, gray boarded faco turned, in the cold blast that whistled over the ship, towards tho man standing over it, was answered by a quick movement of the mate's hand to his pocket. ' You disobey me, you darned son of a ? ' The rest was lost in the report of a revolver, and a bullet struck hard against the opposite bulwark. It had taken the preliminary course of passing through the old man's jaw, when he ro...

THE CASSILIS ELECTORATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

THE CASSILIS ELECTORATE. Sir, — My attention has been called to yonr issue ? of Saturday, 13th January, in which your Merriwa correspondent supplies some information new to me. He says I am one of the coming candidates for the Rylestone electorate, and most unwariant ably asserts 'That I wish to prop up the old exploded fabric of freetrade, by the help of a land tax.' Now, as I object to be misrepresented, perhaps you will allow me to correct this Merriwa Solomon. Though from his hypothesis, he would seem to ignore the signs of the times, he cannot be ignorant that a bill to modify the American tariff— strongly tending towards freetrade— is before Congress. After so many years restriction the American people seem tired of it. Germany ana many or- tne continental states, thougn obliged to cling to protection for revenue to keep their immense armaments are entering into reciprocity treaties for the free interchange of many necessaries of life. Victoria is crying out for intercolonial ...

Portuguese Proverbs. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

Portuguese Proverbs. Everything white isn't flour. ? Four eyes see more than two. A man is known by his laugh. Love is work, not sweet words. A wrong confessed is half forgiven. . You can't make a dart of a pig'B tail. A scalded cat is afraid of cold water. The love of a boy is water in a basket. If I spit at the sky it falls in my face. God writes straight with crooked lines. Of soups and loves the first are the best. Take your friend to be loyal and he will be. 1 The earth covers the physician's mistakes. Adversity will disclose your false friends. God sends the cold according to the clothes. Women and glassware are always in danger. Oil, wine and frendship— the oldest is the best. Fortune gives her hand to a courageous man. ' Of women and sardines, take the little ones. ? , If you want to marry well, marry your equal. One day's fast means three bud days for bread. The stowpan that boils much wastes the flavour. The friend of everybody is nobody's friend. To be good to rascals is ...

ITEMS OP INTEBEST. [Original and Selected.] The South Australian Customs receipts up to January 20, amounted to .£283,000 that being a decrease of JE23,000 on the same period of last year. ; Quite an epidemic of bosh fires has occurred within the last few day3 around Adelaide, and re ports of fires from all directions are to hand. A large fire occurred in the ranges above Adelaide but fortunately only destroyed a large quantity of grass. The police continue to keep under surveillance the Chinese gardener Ah Wang, residing at New lands (Vie.), who has, it is believed, developed symptoms of leprosy, but the doctors are not yet certain. Some amusement was caused in the Adelaide Insolvency Court through an Afghan refusing to enter the court with his head uncovered on account of religious scruples. A warrant wbb issued for his arrest, and he was brought into court, a constable removing his turban. The difficulty, however, was not overcome, as the man remained mute. Eventu ally, after a l...

The political history of the week is ahort. ??On Taesday the Prime Minister announced that the Government had declined to accept Mt'.

Tbe return of Mr. Copeland to the government is to be made the subject of a ?definite motion of censure by Mr. Hindle, which will bo submitted next Wednesday. | Detkactobs do not invariably do injury to 1 the subjects of their remarks.

Self-Sacrifice. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

Self-Sacrifice. In his ' Personal recollections of two visits to Gettysburg,' Mr. A. H. Nickerson gives his ex perience in the terrible battle where he was shot through one arm and through the lungs. By a strange piece of luck, he says, one of the hospital attendants picked up and brought to him his young servant, Jerry, ' a mite of a fellow whom it would be slander to mention as a 'coloured' boy.' He was the blackest of negroes, and about as broad as he was long. The writer continues :—His duties had heretofore been confined to blacking my shoes cuiup, uuu carrying my Haversack and rubber coat when on the march. To these last mentioned articles he still clung, so that when it began to rain the little rubber coat was used to cover me. It covered only a small part of my person, but inadequate as it was, it was more than many of my comrades had. The rain poured in torrents, saturating the exposed portions of my clothing until, with the aid of a shallow pool that formed where I lay, it...

An Adroit Joker. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

An Adroit Joker. To be successful in his calling, an auctioneer should be a ready joker. Some amusing stories are to'd of a member of the craft, a man of some social importance who turned auctioneer after ho had failed in business several times. He opened proceedings with an excellent entertainment o£ oysters and champagne. He was the life of the company, and was called upon of course, for a speech, probably for half a dozen. Ono of his good things, towards the close, is worth remembering. It particularly pleased the trade at tho time ' Gentleman,' said he, in allusion to the entertain ment,' wo aro scattering our bread npon the waters, and we expect to find it after many uays — outtereu i ic was in retail sales, nowover, in the small change of tho auction room, that his wit appeared to tho most advantage. No catalogue could be too dull for his vivacity. He was always rapid, and an unwary customer would be decapitated by his quick electric jest before he felt tho strobe. ' Is that b...
