Our Holiday in New South Wales. PART X. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 2 June 1883
Our Holiday in Now Co ith WnTos PART X. A' Few, ildinf lights .which only sceneed to make the darkness visible w as all we could discern of the township, but we followed con tentedly i :the wtake of tvcmrl ladies: and gentlemen cyho had arrived by the sanme: train. There was a: pretty steep hill to he mointed and our quiet partnr's eagle eye observed that one of the ladies in front was burdened with a prctty heavy little girl, who had fallen asleep in the train and could not hIe woke up. Fired with the natural gallan:ry, which wtvs, such a distinguishing feature of our part:, hie at-once made to the front, and volunteered to carry the precious burdlen, which' offer was graciously accepted by the panting, lady. In my, own mind I tholught that he only made the offer, as a sort of reminider of duty to. the gentlemen alongside, but if so it utterly failed, of .its intendedi, eTect for they trudged on and made no sign. Once loadedl, our generous mate;like the.. . " Y'oith who bore, midst...

Werribee and the Plains. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 2 June 1883
Werribee and the Plains. (From a Correspondent.) To the ordinary resident, or even the casual visitor, there is perhaps nothing new to catch the eye about the township of Wyndham, or its environs, but to the writer, on a visit after an absence of many years, there is much of an improvement to notice. The public roads, thanks to an energetic local Council, are every where in excellent order. Not a few new buildings have been erected, which of course means a plentifulness of money, and an enter prising spirit having command of the cash. Glancing round, the attempts that have been made at tree planting go a long way to remove the dreary monotony of the adjacent plains, and the hope at once springs to one's thoughts that all efforts in this direction may result with every success. Perhaps never was money laid out more judiciously by the Wyndham Shire Council than when it was decided to plant the local recreation reserve with evergreens. These trees though not having many years of growth...

Amateur Parliament. On Monday evening last there was an ex cellent gathenrmg of the members of the above' who very wisely drew round the fire on that cold evening, sacrificing a little ceremony but securing comfort. MAr Salmon occupied the chair. The debate was opened by Mr Robert Johnstone, the luestion being "lHow to live." .ThesLeake advocated a_veetablc diet as heing the best adaptedl for our wants in this climate. He adverted to the prevalence of liver disease as evidence that too much animal food was consumed by the masses, and argued that a quarter of a pound of meat per day was quite enough for any adult. It was also con trary to nature to eat at regulated hours whe ther the system required food or otherwise. We should wait until an appetite was available, when brown bread could be enjoyed with cold water for a beverage. lie also pointed out that attention to proper clothing to suit our variable climate was necessary, and that the boots worn should always be large and easy. ...
Footscray Cricket Club Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 2 June 1883
Foota3oay0 Groket CubD Concert. *:,Notwithstanding 'the nfvorable weather that ;prcvailed and the conseqrernit soppy state of the footpaths, a large audience assembled at the Royal Hall, on Tuesday' evening to patronise the club, and" enjoy' a programme which has never been excelled in the borough for talent. The only failure was the non-ap pearance of the Quartette from the Liedertafel, who were prohibited by their rules from appearing under the name of the Society, but the bill, was sufficiently lengthy so that their absence did not detract from the enjoyment. I)r Morton having taken the chair, the pro ccedings were opened by Madame P'ett, who gave a pianoforte solo in her usual brilliant style, lMr Lamble sang the "Old Brigade" in an artistic manner, and Miss Challis, of Wil liamstown, made her debuht before a Footscray audience, rendering "It was a dream" in a 'way that wion a well-deserved encore.

THURSDAY, MAY 31. Before His Worship the Mayor and I. , Morris,' Esq., J.1P. AMrs Bullock charged Mrs Tuckey with assault.

The land.in question originally belonged to Mrs Bullock, but is at present the property of a Mr Broadbent, who, the plaintiff states, had given her permission to use. both paddock and slip-panels.

A TALE OF TIIE.DIGGINGS. 'JM. B: : 'On re bleak hank of black despair shles tos'd, The litle lolging, lingring love of life is lost" IT was a terrihle scene which met the'view of the horror-stricken crowd.. The rich hangings of the chamber torn and dragged down ini places, the gilded chairs broken as they had been dashed aside, the slender Venetian glasses anti de canters crusheid as they lay on the rich and gaudy carpet. All 'spoke of riot, and there were not wanting the signs of the last occu pation before its fatal close; the scattered cards and dice, the silver-mounted revolver, and the deadly-looking sheath knife, all spoke silently of the wild and lawless lives that had sossuddenly terminated. But beyond all the eye was fascinated by the two bodies lying prone together oni the floor, still and calm now. The fiery passions, all burned out, the tumultuous lifeabruptlyclosed, and the'secret of its horror revealed. He lay upon his back,'with all the' grand proportions of his frame...
