PROPOSED MEAT SUPPLY ' COMPANY. Ox Monday afternoon a preliminary ; meeting of persons favourable to the formation of a Meat Supply Company . for Sydney wa-s enlivened by circular ? at the Agricultural Society's Rooms, : George-street, Aliout twenty-five, gen- j tlenien were present. Mr A. C. Fraser ? was called upon to take, the chair. The Chairman s;iid that hut for the . inclement weather and tins absence from town of several gentlemen who promised ! to be present, there would have been a larger attendance. The meeting had been called for the purpose of initiating ? a movement for securing to the metro- : polis a better supply of butchers' meat.

THE EMPLOYERS' COMBINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 25 January 1879

Ihe Employers' Combination. I At the time of the great rise in the price of coal in Great Britain in 1873, for every extra sixpence a ton the men obtained, the owners put on at least two shillings. The men made good wages when they stuck to their work, but the masters made fabulous profits. The masters were the first to take ad vantage of the great demand by charging exorbitant prices for coal, ami it was only natural that the men should claim some share ill the shower of gold which descended oh the coalfields. The in terests of British trade, generally, were quite lost sight of ; indeed, the per manent interests of the trade im mediately concerned were neglected. In the midst of unheard-of prosperity, a blow was struck at the prosperity of the iron trade, and indirectly, of other i industries, from which they are now j reeling. The disasters which have be fallen the manufactures of the old ; country should teach both masters and J men that the system of national com merce cannot be...

THE DANGERS OF HURRY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 25 January 1879

THE DANGERS OF HURRY. A itKCENT painful case illustrates the danger of hurrying to catch a train. The peril is very considerable, and it besets most men in these busy times. It is perhaps not a matter of social con cern, but it is one in which every member of the community has a per sonal interest. LJie ingii pressure anu speed at which we live, and the im petuous haste 'of business in these days of extreme utilarianisni, do not allow any exemption from the common 'rush.'' Even the staid aud deliberate classes are all'ected by the rapid movement around them, and must needs hurry to keep their place. No inertia 0111 check the torrent, and the stoutest resolve to move slowly is powerless to steal the flood. It remains to adapt the conduct to the inexorable conditions. There is only one remedy for the evil of hurry, and a single protection against its con sequences — -that is, orderly method. Never in the history of intellectual and commercial progress was the need of order more urgent...

THE WATER SUPPLY OF BUSH TOWNSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 25 January 1879

THE WATER SUPPLY OF BUSH TOWNSHIPS. It is somewhat extraordinary that I In: matter of watei supply to bush town ships 1ms not received more attention . at t-lic hands of the Government than has hitherto been the ease. It is si matter of such vital importance to the people, whether .settled in large or small numbers, that it should never he lost sight of. Until quite recently nothing, so far as I know, has been done to im prove or increase the water supply at any of the townships oil' the immediate coast line. Large sums of money have been spent, sometimes by the Govern ment and sometimes by the munici pali ties interested, in storing and laying on water to large bodies and centres of population ; but little or 110 attention has been paid to the small communities scattered at wide intervals through the interior of this colony. I11 a country possessing the advan tage of permanently flowing rivers — or if sites were selected and townships laid out with a view to a good and easy supply ...

THE CROW AS I KNOW HIM. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 25 January 1879

THE CROW AS I KNOW HIM. Is there anyone who cither likes or admires a crow 1 There may be (there is uo accounting for taste). All I can say is, that if such a one exists, I have never been unfortunate enougli to meet with or even hear of him. I do not believe there is a living thing upon the face of the earth so heartily detested and despised, or so often cursed, as the crow, or anything which so thoroughly merits all tlie execrations lavished upon ' hiin. Even the blacks hate him with a hatred only second to that which they entertain for a Chinaman — in spite of his close resemblance to them selves in colour and habits. From a very remote period his name or form has ever been associated with evil and death. He is called 'a bird of ill- ! omen,' and many even go so far as to believe that he is nothing more nor less than an embodiment of ' auld Clooty ' himself. One, two, or three crows (as the case may be) flying over a house, in England, are supposed to denote either a birth, a mar...

AN EPIDEMIC OF FIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 25 January 1879

An Epidemic of Fires. There is something like an epidemic of fires prevailing throughout the colony, which for several years past had enjoyed a remarkable immunity from such casualties. Sydney, Bur wood, Deniliquin, Albury, Armidale, Grafton, and Wagga Wagga have each in tuni within three or four weeks been scourged by the firey element. The causes iu most cases were evidently purely accidental, tliongh one or two fires have provoked the cynical observa tion, ' Trade must be dull.' Dulness of trade and incendiarism seem to have a mysterious connection with civilized communities, w her 3 insurance com panies compete briskly for the recep tion of premiums. We suppose, how ever, that while men are as they are aud insurance societies are popular, the occurrence of some fires will be attri buted to slackness of trade. Never theless, that evil may be reduced to a minimum by the exercise of care 011 the part of insurance agents. The greatest danger arises from the em ployment of people as ...

A CO-OPERATIVE MEAT COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 25 January 1879

A Co-operative Meat Company. A public co-operative company to sell meat to the citizens of Sydney and its suburbs, is projected. The scheme, being a commercial one, would be unde serving of special notice if it were not that some much-needed reforms in the butchering business are contemplated. Complaints have been common that under the present arrangements cattle, for some days before they are killed, are deteriorated in condition by neglect to provide them with food and water. It is said that tliey do not get sufficient attention in these particulars when being driven to market, while in the railway trucks, after they have left the trucKS, wnue 111 tne saieyaras, ana im mediately before being killed. Charges of this kind have been made in Parlia ment And then, after the cattle have been killed, it is alleged that the meat is not conveyed in suitable vehicles to the shops, that the shops are not as clean and well ventilated as they should be, and that the meat is not delivered to cu...

STRAY CATS—A VEXED QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 25 January 1879

STRAY CATS — A VEXED QUESTION. I Mn. Josrph Button, a resident of Mex borough, near Doncaster, and by pro fession n sawyer, has the satisfaction of having raised in his own person, and at his own expense, a most vexed point of law. In almost every household a cat is kept. . We all suffer, in one way or another, from the trouble and annoyance inflicted upon us by the cats of our neighbour. Aud yet the law with regard to cats remains, unfortunately for London householders, as hidden a mystery as if it were written in Runic, or cuneiform, or hieratic. We have all of course heard how ' amongst our barbaric ancestors, the ancient Britons,' | cats— being then ' rare' — were looked upon 11s creatures of intrinsic value ; and that the killing of a cat was a grievous crime, which subjected tlie offender to a fine, especially if the animal belonged ; to the Royal household, or was aietos horrei regis, or head 'tabby' of tlie Royal granary. In such case there was a special : penalty. The dead ...

RUGBY GAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 25 January 1879

RUGBY GAMES. j Ri;-;nv for many years has been famous for its school games, which, as at other schools, are cricket, football, and raquets. Tho management of the School Close and the regulation of all games are committed to an assembly called the ' Big Side Levee,' consisting of all hoys 111 the Upper School, led by the I 'Sixth.' This assembly imposes the taxes to be paid by all for the support of school amusements, subject to the condition of the members of this as sembly paying twice the amount levied 011 the Middle and Lower School, and of the taxes lining approved by the head master. Big Side Levee is the Wittena gemnte of Hugbeans. A Levee of the School is the grand council of the nation called together, now very rarely indeed, at the instigation of the school as a body. In times gone, by a School Levee was generally resorted to for the ignoble purpose of thrashing refractory bargees, or for some other duty, peaceful or warlike, iu which it was desirable that the whole school ...

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. THE TWO GOVERNORS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 25 January 1879

SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. i The Two Governors. In tlio two leading Australian colonies there is about to occur a change of governors, aud the occasion is one of such importance that it would ill become us to pass it by without some remark. Sir George F. Bowen, governor of Vic toria, is about to liroceed to the Mauritius, and Sir Hercules Robinson, perhaps the most popular governor New South Wales ever had, is also on the eve of saying good-bye to the people whose interests he has watched over, and made his own. With regard to the former little need be said, and in spite of several great mistakes, for which, we believe, 110 one is more sorry than himself, he will carry with him the good wishes of at least a section of the com munity. It is true there is a divinity which doth hedge a king, and, in a lesser degree, a king's representative, and the vice-regal officer must coinmoi d respect from every loyal subject of Her Majesty. Every Englishman worthy the name must honour authority, and we...

The following startling account of a highway robbery under arms, committed within a mile and a half of Sandhurst, affords a good illustration of this, and considered in connection with many similar outrages which have recently taken place in other parts of the country, the necessity for making a» example of some of these imitators of bushrangers' instincts is fnlly shown.
