ROYAL FIDDLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886
ROYAL FIDDLERS. ATLAS ' in the World says :-It is, per- haps, somewhat hard that the Duke of Edinburgh should be chaffed on his fid- dling, at a time when, as we learn on high authority, H.B.H., while supposed to be carrying on high jinks with a select shooting party at Eastwell, was in reality sitting with ashes on his head and sack- cloth on his back, bemoaning the loss of dear old Mr«. McBoskey, his children's Scotch nurse. But I have just come across a story so à propos that I must tell it. It seems, that George III, when Prince of Wales, desired to learn the. violin, and engaged a preceptor. _ After some months of practice, he inquired -of the maestro what progress he had made. "Sir," said the Italian, " there are three kinds of vioUn-phiyers-those who cannot play at all, those who play badly, and those who play well. Your Royal High- ness has arrived at the second stage." The Duke of Edinburgh arrived there years ago ; and there he has remained.

OUR SUMMER MONTH AT LIMPETER. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886
OU» SUMMER MONTH AT LIMPETER. So familiar is the aspect of t oceun, and the manner of life at t sea-side, to almost the poorest of i and the most inland "-thanks to ra ways and cheap trips-that we c hardly understand that it was qui otherwise with our forefathers of i last century, who, in addition to t difficulties of transit, were deterr from marine excursions by a fooli notion that the air of the sea coa was unhealthy. One wonders wh the pent-up city people did in tho days, to get themselves well quit the dust and din of town. They we »ot, it is true, quite so crowded as present, nor, perhaps, worked i uardry, and could certainly reach tl couutry with greater ease, which no lays so many lines of streets awi front many of them ; but they mu hare pined for that through changi too, without which it seems to i middle dusses that we must peris! How jaded and worn, and duli we g&lt; after our eleven months' pursuit « the ** almighty dollar," in mart an counting bouses, in court...
Temperance. THE PHYSIOLOGICAL CAUSE OF INTEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886
THE PHYSIOLOGICAL CAUSE OF INTEMPERANCE. BY JOHN B. HELLIEB. X.D. The object; of the present article is to snake plain what is the germ and essential .cause of alcoholic intemperance. There is a certain want of perspective in the popular view of the alcohol controversy, -occasioned by the fact that the points which are most discussed are not necessarily those which; are most importent, but those which .are most doubtful. This is commonly the -case in scientific controversy. The most significant and important facts are often those which are tacitly assumed,and which lie no longer in the field of debate. For in .«tance, one of the questions of today is whether there do not exist a small number people whose nutrition is carried on better if they take a very small fixed quantity of alcohol daily. The very prominence of this discussion implies the almost unanimous opinion of the profession that, for the vast majority of healthy people, and for all healthy children, alcohol is not necessa...

THE JOURNAL OF MAJOR-GEN- ERAL C. G. GORDON, C.B., AT KARTOUM. -*> ('?Reprinted from the Sydney Mail,) NOTEUBER 14. The five feluccas, which took thc men off the Husseinyeh, were not seen by the Arabs. I sent an engineer to take off the steam valves of the Hu8aeiayeh ; the fire feluccas took off, this time, everything from Hussen yen, biscuit, ammunition &c, &c. It appears that tho Arabs, who were watching Russen- den, hod gone off to Kerow*, apposite Halfeyeh ; but this is doubtful. At dawn the Arabs opened a heavy fire with the usual futile efforts on Bourré, also they fired with gun and musketry on Omdur- man Fort. . * At Omdurman Fort they hare had, in the last few days, 4 killed and 16 wounded. A shell from the Arabs struck Husseinyeh yesterday, bat did no harm, for she is well aground. No wounded at Bourré to-day by the Arab fire.

PEOPOSED LAND REGULATIONS. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886
PEOPOSED LAND REGULA- TIONS. [FROM THE WEST AUSTKAIIIAN.] WK publish a letter today over the signature " Outsider " in which a cor- respondent, who, in one respect, seems to be thoroughly an " Insider," gives some practical opinions upon the sub- ject of the proposed new Land Kegu lations. i hese, by the way, we hope to see published before long iu the Government Gazette. Nothing can be of more importance to the colony generally and to the country settlers iu particular than any change effected tn the system of acquiring and of leasing our Crown lands, and it is highly desirable that the people should haye the full text of the new proposals officially placed before them in time for them to be thoroughly discussed and sifted before the next meeting of the Legislature. An " Outsider " refers to a statement made by a cou temporary that the settlers are in- competent to deal with such a question and to its sneers at our advice that they should send for publication the various opinions t...
COMMERCIAL. MESSES. GOLDSBROUGH'S & CO.'S MELBOURNE BEPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886
COMMERCIAL. _-c_ MESSES. GOLDSBROÜGH'S & CO.'S MELBOURNE BEPOBT. WOOL.-The arrivals during the month have been large, and as the season is now at its height, a considerable business has been carried through, 91,517 bales having been catalogued and 73,739 bales sold since the issue of our last summary on the 28th ultimo, thus making a total of 158,361 bales offered and 126,064 bales sold since the opening of the season eight w^eks ago. On comparing these figures with those of last year at the corresponding date it will be observed that 15,856 bales less have changed hands, owing | partly to the lateness of the season, and part- ly to the shipment of some large clips to the home market for which owners declined to aooept current rates, although the prices of- fered wero in some caseB 5 per cent, above the London parity. Competition has been actively sustained throughout the month, and prices for all descriptions of the staple remain without change, the ruling quotations being ...
A Judgment on a Judge. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886
A Judgment on a Judge» Irish cleverness is certainly not extinct. For effective punishmeut and bitter in -salt combined, could anything more in- genious be devised thau the castigation just inflicted on the obuoxious Vice Chancellor Chatterton by the irate Dublin Corporation. Some time back that pat- riotic body proceeded to deal with the . -old established names of the streets, roads, -and bridges of the Irish metropolis. Many of them have the titles of bygone English Lord Lieutenants, Deputy Go- vernors, Lords Justices, and other Saxon togpreuors of the Green Ivie. In particu- lar, the National Corporators, cast acovo vnis/Bveou "one of the finest thorough- fares of Europe " to wit Sackville Street, in whioh all Dubliners icol so justifiable -a pride. In their glowing ardour the Nationalist majority of the corporation decided it should he known for the future ' as O'Connell Parade. To this change the -shopkeepers and householders of Sick ?Ule street took moBt decided exception, on...
MARRIED OR SINGLE? [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886
MARRIED OR SINGLE? The Nev) York Tribune Bays :-A cur- ious romance bas been unfolding itself in a coruer of the little village of Tarrytown. In one of its aspects it has given rise to legal questions which the heroine is now most desirous of haring settled. The said heroine was born to humble station, but was fond of reading. By the time she was 18 years of age she had read much. She was tall and slender, aud attractive by reason of her intelligence. Withal she was iguoraut of society and its ways, except as the latter purported to be taught | iu the light literature of which she had imbibed deeply. Of the realities of lifo she knew little. Into Tarrytown came a dashing young clergyman of a peculiar type, who carried firearms and lind shot a fellow student while at college in Vir- ginia. Ho became interested ia the girl, whein he flattered by hts visits and atten- tions, aud to whom he read his sermons for criticism and the 'poems of their choice' for delectation. His visits grew m...
A REMARKABLE DROVING FEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886
A REMARKABLE DROVING FEAT. The following account of a remarkable droving feat appears in the Queenslander of the 3rd October :—" Mr. Richard Coulter, on the 20th September last, delivered at Mr. &nbsp; C. N. Armitage's station, of Afton Downs, near Hughenden, 463 merino rams, bred upon Raleigh Brothers' well-known stud estate, Tandara, thirty miles north of Sand- hurst, Victoria, and 1,700 miles from the point of delivery, with a loss of only two. The details of this extraordinarily success- ful feat of droving in a season of unusual drought are worthy of publication, and com- prise the following facts :— Took delivery on 5th March of 400 at Tandara ; thence to Deniliquin, picking up 615 rams from Arm- strong Brothers ; thence to Gunbar, on the the Lachlan, taking 360 more, making a total of 1,445. Left Gunbar 28th March, thence via Bourke and Cunnamulla to Coon- goolah, leaving at the latter place 975, and proceeding with the balance of 470 by Tambo, Blackhall, Aramac, Mutt...
TICHBORNE ESTATES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886
TICHBORNE ESTATES. SIR Henry Alfred Doughty Tichborne, who will be of age shortly will be re- garded with some curiosity in society, says an English journal. The necessity for defending his property has entailed upon his trustees the large expenditure of 120,000l., but he will still be a rich man. His estates, which are in Hamp- shire, Lincolnshire, Dorsetshire, and Buckinghamshire; represent nearly 12, 000 acres ; and it is estimated that, with the London properties, the gross rent-roll of the young baronet will be 28,000l a year.

Our Novel. &nbsp; &nbsp; A STORY IN THREE PARTS. BY MRS. CASHEL-HOEY. ' ' A stern chase is a long chase. ' ' THE FIRST PART. CHAPTER III " FAIR INES." " Anger from my father! No; I don't think that he knew that I was not there. And the tertulia ? It was much as usual, only that the English señor, Don Henrique, brought a friend, also an Englishman, with a very hard name, and Don Henrique told Dona Maria that he is a painter, like Don Gualterio, my cousin, and Dona Maria said she had seen him at the cathedral." 'What is he like, this English senor ?" " He is beautiful ! He has such a noble, fair face ; his eyes are grey and soft ; and when he speaks his voice seems to wish and to do you good. He is so different—so different—" " And here Ines, who was speaking rather to herself than to Teresita, al- lowing her nerves, which had been too tightly strung during the evening, to give way, and burst into tears.
CHAPTER IV. THE "CARTE DU PAYS." [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886
CHAPTER IV. &nbsp; THE "CARTE DU PAYS." The following morning beheld Hugh &nbsp; Rosslyn at the cathedral, among the earliest of the worshippers, and his observations of the preceding day enabled him to divest himself of the appearance of a total stranger to the place and its ways. He took up a position in the chapel of San Ignacio itself, and was rewarded by seeing &nbsp; " fair Ines," as he now called her in his thoughts, enter, rosary of coral and gold in hand, and accompanied by Dona Mercedes. The old negress was not in attendance ; it was a smart black boy who preceded the ladies with their chairs and carpets. When the mass was concluded, Hugh left the chapel quickly, stationed himself at the great door, and there awaited the coming of Dona Mercedes and Ines. They both recognised him, the former with a decided look of surprise, &nbsp; the latter with a glance that was less intelligible; there was not so much surprise as embarrassment in it. With ...
CHAPTER V. THE TEATRO REAL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886
CHAPTER V. THE TEATRO REAL. Pepito had unconsciously seconded Hugh Rosslyn's wishes by making a rather early move, in order that the foreign visitor might have the advan- tage of seeing the best society as it took possession of the two tiers of private boxes, which were sure to be filled. The piece to be acted was a popular one, and the star, an elderly gentleman who had been on the wane for some time at Madrid, but who made up wonderfully, was a great favourite with as good-humoured an audience as there is to be found in the world. Hugh perceived by the appearance of the house that the fashionable folks were not arriving, although the gallery was filled yet with soldiers, sailors, and the usual gallery popu- lace, and the benches in the far back- ground were occupied by mulatto girls and negro men and women, all scrupulously well dressed. He was sufficiently disengaged to look about him impartially, and to follow Pepito's remark's upon the building, the arrangements, and the people...
As he was Saying. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886
As Le was Saying. At one of the theatres the other evening a man -who had a seat between his wife and daughter left it at the close of an act for a trip down stairs. When he returned he found a vacant seat two rows back between two women, and dropped into it with the remark : "As I was saying when I went out, Wa none of your pudding what other women, wear. Because some one else makes a fool of herself by wearing cotton stockings in the winter, it doesn't follow that you must do> the same." " Sir !" came from both sides of him atc once, and the way he vacated that seat mada the soles of his boots red-hot.

All the Insurance He Wanted. "Young man," said a minister to a passen- ger, who had just finished cursing a peanut; boy for waking him up, " does it ever occur to you that we know not what a day may bring forth-that we are here to-day, and gone to-morrow ?'' " I should say so ; Tm a Cincinnati drummer." "Do you know," went on the minister solemnly, " that in the midst of life we are in de-" " You're too late, oldman," said the Cincinnatian, briskly; " I've got 10,000 dois, in the Occident and Orient, and that's all the insurance 1 can carry."
WISDOM OF OUR NOUMEA "CONSEIL GENERAL." [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886
WISDOM OF: OUR NOUMEA " CONSEIL 'GENERAL." " OUR " Conseil General" writes a cor- respondent from Noumea has at last finish- ed its sittings, and its members have dis- persed to different parts of the colony. They have been trying their " prentice hands" upon protective' duties, they say from a patriotic point of view. Every man in the Council is engaged more or I less ia horse aad cattle breeding and for I age growing ; so they have imposed tho following unport duties : Horses and cattle £1 each ; pigs 12s, and sheep 4s each ; salt beef, ¿8 per ton ; grease and lard the same ; lucerne and maize, with all other kinds of forage, 24s per ton ; cuffee, £10 per ton. This is a dangerous game for a little country like this to play, dependent as we are upon Australia. These duties are specially imposed to keep out New South Wales products, and if the Sydney Government was to retaliate (as it ought to do), and put a duty of 24s. a ton upon New Caledonian Maize, it would he ruin to a number ...
