MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 14 March 1857

MISCELLANEOUS. What two letters in the anphabet are the most dis agreeable to ladies ?--D1 (decay). If five and a half yards make a pole, what's the length of an Hmigarian ? "Poor rule that wont work both w\ays," as the boy said when he threw the rule back at the master. A mirror is the only tolerated medium of reflection upon woman's beauty, and it is the last that is dis carded. The Chinese have a thoughtful proverb-" The prison is shut night and day, yet it is always full ; the temples are always open, and yet you find no one in them." We learn toleration from children; for no man can have his whiskers pulled by a brat without feeling what an intolerable nuisance he must have been as a child himself. A Yankee' who h. just commenced the study of Italian, wants to know how it is, if they hale no a in that language, " that them chaps spell witl, wig, swa,, wtine, and whlskey !" Mrs. Partington says the only way to prevent steamboat explosions is to " make the engineers bile their wa...

[To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 21 March 1857

[To the Editor of the WILLIA2STOWN CIIRONICLE. Sm,-Ourrepresentative, Mr. Foster, kindly gave £20 towards the funds of the above Regatta, to be contended for by the Williamstown watermen on Tuesday last, and for which two boats only started, a whale-boat and a sort of a gig, the latter of which won, after her owners objecting to another boat of the same description pulling against her. The boat objected to belongs to one J. Casey, besides which notice was given to the Committee that other water men's boats would start for the race ; but these were prevented in consequence of the hurry-scurry way in which:this race was made up and started by parties in authority on board the flag-ship Empire. Now, Sir, what we want to know is this, whether Mr. Foster intended that two boats with, their crews of threein each, should have the privilege of contend ing for his gift, to the exclusion of the others, and whether he intended the Regatta Committee should compel the competitors for his prize t...

The Williamstown CHRONICLE. WILLIAMSTOWN, Saturday, March 21st. THE REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 21 March 1857

CHRONICLE.   WILLIAMSTOWN, Saturday, March 21st.   THE REGATTA .   THE British islanders have a peculiar relish for salt water. Walking by the side of it, dis- porting themselves upon the surface of it, or immersed over head and ears in it, they are happy. It is as natural to most of them as mother's milk, and to be for any length of time separated from it is a real hardship. From the geographical position of our native country, and still more from its geographical configuration, this universally-disposed nauti- cal predilection springs. England, and in a greater degree Ireland, and in a still greater degree Scotland, is not only surrounded by water on all sides, but it is so indented with bays, creeks, and other arms of the sea in every direction, that no part is very distant from salt water; and a large proportion of the juvenile population is brought into direct and immediate contact with the "imperious main" at the most im- pression able ep...
