ELEPHANT GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 25 January 1879

ELEPHANT GOSSIP. Mil Saxdekson, in his recent book, 'Thirteen Years among the Wild Beasts of India,' tells us many interest ing particulars respecting the elephant. We learn with some supixse that twice round an elephant's foot is his height, aud that there is probably 110 elephant iu India which measures as much its inr* ..f +i.„ ,.i.„..i.i.... t\.. j.i._ .j.1 ? hand, what the elephant lacks in height he makes up in longevity The general opinion of experienced natives is that in captivity he usually attains eighty years, and 1 20 in exceptional cases ; but our author believes that the elephant attains at least 150 years. The ques tion, ' Where do the elephants die ?'' is apparently as far from solution as ever, for Mr. Sanderson, like Sir Emerson Tennent, confesses that he never came across the carcase of one that had died a natural death. The author's elephant catching establishment consisted of 367 u natives, the total cost of which was £380 per mensem, including daily rations. A...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 25 January 1879

Victoria. A large body of mounted troopers, well armed, accompanied by black trackers, left Wangaratta bjl the last stain, to search for the Kellyj?. Their destination is kept a secret for obvious reasons. A meeting of the proprietors of tlie Union Bank was held in London on the 13th inst, at which a dividend was declared at the rate of 16 per cent per annum for the half-year. £20,000 were added to the reserve fund, and £7465 carried to next year's account. The strike of labourers employed by the railway department landing silt from the Yarra has been amicably settled, and the men returned to work. Two persons named Stephenson and Lonegan were fined £5 at the District Court, Melbourne, on Monday, for keeping unregistered dancing saloons. A waggonnette driver, named Thomas Mintfoot, was fined £6 for driving his horse in poor condition. The larrikin element in Melbourne has of late been giving considerable trouble to die authorities, and scarcely a night passes but what the police are...

INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 25 January 1879

INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. New South Wales. Information reached Grafton on Mon day that the body of a blackfellow had been found in a hollow log at Brusli grove, by some aboriginals. There is a tomahawk cut on the head, and there is no doubt deceased had been murdered. At Bingera, on Saturday, a young man named John Paterson was drowned whilst bathing. The body was reco vered, and at the inquest a verdict of accidental drowning was returned. The sports iu aid of the Gunuedah School of Arts, last week, went off well. The pigeon match for a .£30 silver cup was won by Tainworth. The police magistrate of Gunnedah, while sitting in a buggy, was severely kicked by a horse, and has, owing to injuries to his knee-cap, been incapaci tated from attending to his official duties. The New Lambton miners were each furnished with a copy of Mr. Dibbs's speech 011 the vend question, as re ported in the & M. Herald.

POSTAGE-STAMPS AND THEIR MANUFACTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 25 January 1879

l'OSTAGE-STA MPS AND TliElli MANUFACTURE. Tuiilii: are few things better known to us all, from the. very highest- to the lowest, than postage-stamps, and the result of our familiarity with them is that we do not trouble ourselves to inquire where they all come from, how they are made, the processes tliey go through, and the numbers in which they are consumed. We see tliem around us at every hand's turn, and that contents us, at least all who are not alilieted with a mass of correspond ence which must be answered, to whom the penny stamp is a terror, and who would gladly incur the tine of having it .sixpence to mitigate the dreaded visits of the postman. We mean to try to tell our readers how postage stamps are made, promising that the subject is a curious one, and not alto gether without interest to every one. To begin with, we may say that all the half-penny, penny, threehalfpenny, and twopenny stamps are printed by the private linn of Messrs. Perkins and Bacon, whose extensive pre...

BOY-SMOKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 25 January 1879

BOY-SMOKERS. A lhahnki) professor of liiodiciiic ill one of our universities some time ago made the remark to us that those students who pissed through his hands rare])' distinguished themselves if they wen: habitual smokers of tobacco. Tlie smoking of cigars or pipes seemed to (lull their faculties, and to have ilic effect of preventing them i'roin sedu lously gathering facts sullicicnt to excel at examinations for degrees. We repeat the remark us we heard it, Jind submit it for consideration. Perhaps other professom ecjually candid and observant might have a similar tale to tell. As it is pretty generally known, the smoking of tobacco has a certain intoxi cating ett'ect, it soothes the nervous system, and in cases of poor living it. kills the craving of an empty stomach without in any degiee feeding the animal system. Men who happen to be enclosed in a coal-mine, aud are perishing for lack of food, are stated to have protracted life by a few consoling whiffs of tobacco. In ciwes o...

THE STRATEGICAL ASPECT OF THE CAMPAIGN IN AFGHANISTAN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 25 January 1879

THE STRATEGICAL ASPECT OF THE CAMPAIGN IN AFGHANISTAN. While we are awaiting the reply of Shere Ali to the ultimatum of Lord Lytton, and while the military arrange ments are being completed, it would lie wise for our authorities to turn their attention to the probable strategy of the war with which we arc threatened. Up to tlie present moment there lias been little evidence of the existence of any strategical plan, although the tactical arrangements appear in com pleteness to leave little to be desired. In discussing military matters — more especially when there appears to be. a likelihood of delay — it is of paramount necessity that reticence should be observed, lest those who are hostile to or dubious towards this country should become possessed of plans that might be invaluable to them. But great as is the responsibility in this respect, it is not to be compared with that which must attend complete silence when there is reason to suppose that out generals are trusting almost excl...
