WIDOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 25 January 1877
WIDOWS. Winter-kept apples, seasoned wine, a clouded meerschaum, a vase around which Jhe scent of the roses still hangs. all these have a rare, ripe, evanescent flavor that suggest, but cannot express, the charm of the widow. A young widow is, perhaps, the lmost interesting object in nature- or in art. She represents ex perience without its wrinkle or gray hairs. She has matronly and maidenly freedom combined. She is grief with a laughinig eye-sorrow in a house of festi val-a silver moon in a sable cloud. She is too sweet for anything ! Like all good things, she can only be created at a great ascrifice. Mrs. Browning says that a. man must be pretty thoroughly spoiled before he can leave a widow. This black swan-this mournful Phoenix -rises only out o'f the funeral urn that holds the ashes of a husband's heart. Let us wipe away the briny, tear and proceed., Perdite Pierides. Poets, statesmen, heroes, and philosophers have each felt the indefinable influence of widowhood. Its quality ...

PROFESSOR PEARSON ON LAND TAXATION. BRISBANE COURIER JAN. 11. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 25 January 1877
PSEOF2mbR pEARRDN O1- LAND TAXATION. sarssoArn conate Joan. 11. Professor Pearson, the historian, *ho is head master bf the Ladies' Presbyterian Col lege in Mlelbojarne, has been delivring ,a lecture on taxation in one of the suburb of that city. The lecturer belonged to what may be be called the left wing of the advanced radicals in the mother country, and there. fore his views, although based in many in. stances upon sound principles, have a ten dency to run into extremes-a tendency which is exaggerated by an infirmity of temper, a spirit of dogmatism, and strong class prejudices. And here we may note in passing, that in estimating the political forces, and studying the political history of the present, or of any past time, we are apt to overlook one very important "factor, namely, the temparament of the men who make that history, and shape and direct those forces. Yet the value of this factor for good or for evil is literally enormous, as anyone must acknowledge who considers the...

The Chronicle. THURSDAY, JANUARY 25, 1877. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 25 January 1877
THURSDAY, JANUARY 25, 1877. THERE has been something like a fail ure of the Constitution in the United States of America over the election of a successor to President GRAsT. At this moment the election is undecided, and stands in abeyance, although all the forms prescribed by the Constitution have been rigorously observed. Whether TILDES, the Democrat, or HAYES, the Republican, will be the President for the next four years, is a questiun that no body can answer, and it awaits the de cision of the Congress during the course of the next month. On that decision hang interests of vast importance for the country, and there is even a possi bility of its involving the tremendous issue of another civil war. Few amongst even intelligent foreigners realise how deep the political differences betiween the two opposing parties reach. There is a ready assumption made that, because slavery has been abolished by the law of the land. therefore all the causes of quarrel between Northerners and South ...

THE LOCOMOTIVE V. SUPERSTITION. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 27 January 1877
THE LOCOIOTI VE I'. SUPERSTI TION. When the Nicholai railway was con structed, in 1848,.from St. Petersburg to Moscow, the work was done under con tracts with American engineers, and the cars and engines were stipplied from Bal timore by the famous establishments of the Winan Brothers. The Russian priests oppose every modern. innovation, and, of course, they were " down" on the railway. When the..road was opened they determined to stop it, and so they went in force to a point on the road, and set up a holy picture to stop the new work of the devil. The train came slowly along, and the engineer seeing the picture standing on the track, thought there must be a man behind it, and so came to a halt. The asembled multitude raised a shout, and the priests called out thit the saint was all-powerful, and would prevail against against wickedness. The officer in charge of the train came out and took a survey of the situation. Then he told the engi neer to run back a quarter of a mile and. bri...

JE'W SOUTIH WALES BTDGIET. (AUSTRALLtN ASSOCIATED PRESS TELEGRAMS.) SYsnY, January 24. The Treasurer made his financial state ment in the Assembly to-night. Before proceeding to deal with the business of the year, he gave a somewhat lengthly retrospect of the past year. He said he saw before them in those Crown land. sales which formed the subject of so much discussion a future of inmnence wealth, but was persuaded that it could only become theirs by a wise administration of what came into their hands year by year, by keeping a watchful eye over expenditure of a doubtful character, and opening their hands with liberality whenever they thought such a course. beneficial to the interests of the colony. In a somewhat elaborate defence of the appropriation of land sales to the general revenue, he pointed out that long be fore the introduction of responsible government we had been selling land and appropriating the proceeds to the general revenue. The receipts from this source had increas...
