NOTES ON MANY THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 5 February 1881
NOTES ON MANY THINGS, BY CosaIo. THE oracle has spoken. The travelled man has opened his mouth and deluged the editor of the Penny Post and Cosmo with a flood of bitter, blighting, withering oratory-or rather he tried to. He can't surmount the idea of being criticized, and, amongst other things, wants to know why I don't come forward and give my name. Evidently he imagines that because he has been to the East Indies he knows how to conduct a paper; and one of his ideas is that no journal should persume to criticize the actions of Edward Ball Esq., Mayor of Goulburn. Well, you, Mr. Editor, very kindly enlightenecd his comprehension as to what the duties of the Press are, and if he learnt it not in his travels he ought to know it now; and to further instruct him perhaps a word or two from me will be accep table. The duties of an anonymous writer, Mr. Mayor, then are-To strictly preserve his anonymity, to watch over public interests, and criticize the actions of public men and bodies, ...

BRAIDWOOD. (Froni our correspondent.J WHAT we are going to do must now be of much interest to us. We promise well-First, I am informed that we are to have a new Church of England built, the" old one 'being gradually upheaved by roots of some adjacent elm trees; its walls are cracked; its windows broken; .its floor is being shoved up by the pressure of the roots that have pierced the rubble foundations, and have become a serious trouble; and the gallery-in fact, the whole building-is declared to' be unsafe;' With these facts in view, a committee was fonimed to initiate measures for the erection of a new-church. Five months ago they began, and now inform me as the result of most indefatigable exertions, which have been unflagging for the whole time, they have a grand total of good names on paper, with promises attached, for 2510o; and in addition to this, a grand bazaar on a scale never before witnessed in the place will be held before midwinter; the committee being determined that no...

TREVELYAN! CHAPTER XXVII. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 8 February 1881
T EVELYAN ! CHAPTER XXVII. TEa house which had been chosen for the enforced asylum of Giralda, and the light from whose windows had been pointed out to her by Haskins, stood, as we have said, upon the summit of a bluff, which rose nmre or less steeply from the sea. This bluff was not so high nor large as that upon which the Eagle's Eyrie was perched, and was separated from the latter bluff only by the long wide valley, or plateau, in which nestled the hamlet of Little Grosvenor. There was but one approach to the dwell ing, and that was the rugged mountain path by which Giralda and her captor were ascend ing. On two sides were only rocks and chasms, on the third the sea, A more in accessible retreat could not have been found upon any coast of the kingdom. The house was small in size, and rudely built of rough stones. It had a hard, weather beaten look, but, like many of the Welsh mountain cottages, was not devoid of picturesqueness. A small, half-sterile garden lay in its rear, now m...

ODDS AND ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 8 February 1881
ODDS AND ENDS. THE Braidwood Dispatch says: On last Tuesday the heat was oppressive in the ex treme, and as no sea breeze came up in the evening, there was no abatement of the in tensity of the atmosphere throughout the night. On Wednesday morning a bank of clouds gathered up to the north and then worked away towards the west, and a little before noon a thunderstorm came up and rain fell freely. On Thursday there was another thunderstorm, and the wind setting in the south-east a deal more rain came dowvn and the air became cooler. This rain will do aa immensity of good, as it will give a good supply of grass for the winter, and at the same time enable our farmers to com mence ploughing. Threshing operations, which were pretty general, have, of course, been suspended for a time. Many farmers have already brought in their wheat, but the miserable price obtained for good samples offers but little inducement to those who till the ground. In one or two instances, where the wheat had spro...

"Therefore we advise our readers concerned to take the hint and comply with the Act at once. The district of Currawang has anything but a pleasant 'appearance at the present time. The township itself consists of a few bark huts, most of them- in a very indifferent state of repair. The schoolhouse and church are substantial buildings; but these are about tlieohnly ones in the place. :We heard more' discontent from the inhabitants (the majority of \ilhom work in the copper-mine) than we ever heard before in any part of the colony. Some of these men have been working...

We also notice that our worthy friend Mr. Plielps is about to start a hay and corn store, the building being nearly completed; and we wish' him all success, for there is nothing like opposition.
