THE ELECTRIC LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

THE ELECTRIC LIGHT. f Following up tlie successful use of the electric light in Paris and elsewhere, the London Stereoscopic Company have now caused powerful machinery to be erected at their Regent-street premises for the production of this new lighting agency, and claim to be first in apply ing it to purely commercial purposes. ? A considerable number of persons as sembled to witness the illumination or B the lower end of Regent-street by |j: means of a lamp in connection with the apparatus, and as usual the soft ^ but powerful rays of the electric light f caused the ordinary street lamps to look dim and yellow, as though seen through a fog, by force of contrast. This lamp, besides illuminating the street, is made to throw its light upon the window of the company's premises, and thus it cau readily be seen by a , glance at the coloured photographs j there displayed that the new light is i no destroyer of even tlie most delicate colours. The apparatus, which is con structed accordin...

RAILROAD ACROSS THE SAHARA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

RAILROAD ACROSS THE SAHARA. M. Duponciiel, Eiigineer-iu-Chief of the Ponts-et-Cliausees, was lately sent | out to Algeria to examine the geological formation of the land to the south of the colony, with a view to the estab lishment of a trans-Saharau railway, and to explore as far as practicable the borders of the great desert. He has / now made his report, troin which it 'F appeal's that the proiected railway { would run from Algiers to Tiuibuctoo, j a distance of about 1500 miles. M. ii Duponchel states that the principal j portion of the line — that which would j j pass by Laghouat and Taguin, crossing i i the oasis of Jouat, and terminating at ! Tiuibuctoo on the Niger — would rest during nearly its whole extent ou quarternary deposits, layers of sand, and, towards the end on primitive vol canic rocks, granite, gneiss, Ac. No mountainous obstructions would have to be encountered. The Sahara has always had the reputation of being an exceptionally hot region. Such is really the ca...

THE CHINESE PLEA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

The Chinese Flea. I Three Chinese merchants of Mel- fl bourne have issued a pamphlet under I the title of ' The Chinese Question in I Australia.' It is not, we imagine, in- I tended to convey that, though these I merchants are credited on the title-page ? with having 'edited' the production, fl they did more than sanction and coin- I its compilation. It does not concern H us, however, what erudite personage H wrote it _: all we have to be satisfied about is that it is authentic, and of that ? there is no doubt. Taking it as such, we must view it as the opinions of the 9 Chinese residents in Australia put for ward by Mr. Kong Meng and his co editors, and there are few who read it who will not agree with us that because of its ability, because of its moderate tone aud the temperate language that is used, it is well worthy of perusal. The arguments used are 110 doubt old ones, but they are forcibly and elo quently put, and tlie little work altogether may be described as quite unique. T...

THE STORY OF THE CENTAURS [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

THE STORY OF THE CENTAURS Thic fable of the Centaurs is a fable of the highlands Their haunts were ann-ng the fastnesses of tlie Tliessalian and. Arcadian mountains. Arcadia, however, was not their earliest home ; the'ir earliest home was Thessalv, where the y ranged the forests of Mount Pelion, and. from thence as far as Ossa and the gorge of Tempe, along the great eastern rid; »e which shuts out tbe plain of the En ipeus from the sea. Tliat inland pla in was from time immemorial the giv at horse-breeding district of tbe Grc ;ek world, and it was natural that, together with many another sacred and anc I heroic legend of the race, this leg. aud of the man-horse should spring up among the mountains which fenced it round about. The prodigious nature of 'the creatures was accounted for by the prodigious circumstances of their biribh. They were the children or grand children of the murderer Ixiou, who, when the gods had granted him purifica tion, incorrigibly repaid their clemency by se...

"(LAUGHTER.)" [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

'(LAUGHTER.)' j We have for long beeu familiar with the parenthetical word ' (laughter) ' as used by police and law courts reporters to denote that a joke has been attempted by the presidential mind, and received as such, not by the dispassionate, but by those who have a desire to curry favour with one who is for the time all powerful. This sort of tiling, ghastly in itself at most times, has been made even more ghastly during the coroner's inquiry as to the way in which between seven and eight hundred persons were, as the same reporters who chronicle ' (laughter) ' would say, hurried into eternity. It seems impossible to under stand why in cold blood, during an investigation conducted immediately af ter the greatest domestic catastrophe ever known, small humourists should air themselves iu the very presence of death, and made frantic endeavour to extract jokes from the evidence of wit nesses who describe themselves, and are described, as too agitated for utterance. Equally impossib...

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. BORING FOR WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. Boring for Wateh. The news which comes by telegraph from South Australia of the discovery of water by deep boring in one of tlie most arid districts of our island con tinent is fraught with consequences which have an important bearing upon the future of the Colonies. It is said that in the centre of an apparently waterless district, a well has been j sunk to a depth of 370 feet, which yields a supply of 10,000 gallons daily, t aud encouraged by this success two other wells have been sunk which furnish between them close upon | 30,000 gallons. Previous to these borings being undertaken, the country j round about was considered almost worthless, and capable of carrying but a, few sJieej) .in exceptional seasons, the district ls consifiereu lu the most favoured localities, if the new j discovery is utilised by the adoption of J a proper system of irrigation.

LIVING BY ONE'S WITS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

LIVING BY ONE'S WITS. Thehe are few things more puzzling to the unsophisticated mind thau the manner iu which certain people, with out any definite means of subsistence, manage to live. We know that such persons have no profession, that no kind relations have put their names down for handsome legacies, that they are social waifs and strays, not clearly belonging to anybody : yet they appear always to be amply supplied with the goods of this world, and freely to enjoy the pleasures thereof. If they are married they live in the most charming of bijou establishments, give excellent dinners, where tbe male element some what predominates, drive in the easiest and most miniature broughams, ride the cleverest of hunters in the shires, and the most perfect of hacks in the park, and are always to be met with in the haunts that fashion especially selects for her amusement — yatching in the Solent, drinking from the Elivabeth Brunnen at Homburg, bathing at East bourne, rentiug the most comfort...

BISMARCK'S LETTER TO HIS WIFE AFTER SEDAN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

BISMARCK'S LETTER TO HIS WIFE AFTER SEDAN. The following is an extract from a letter by tbe Count von Bismarck to his wife, dated Vendresse, 3rd September, taken from Mr. Fitzstephen Maxe's recent work : — ' I left my present quarters before early dawn the day before yesterday, came back to-day, and have in the meantime witnessed the great battle of Sedan, in which we made abont .30,000 prisoners, and tlirew the remainder of the French army, which we have beeu pursuing since Bar le-duc, into the fortress, where they had to surrender themselves, along with the Emperor, prisoners of war. Yesterday morning, at 5 o'clock a. m., after I had been negotiating until 1 o'clock a.m. with Moltke and the French generals about the capitulation to be concluded, I was awakened by General Reille, with whom I am acquainted, to tell me that Napoleon wished to speak with me.

THE MARQUIS OF LORNE AND THE PRINCESS LOUISE [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

THE MARQUIS OF LOllNE AND THE PRINCESS LOUISE. 'It was not till the lflth that Mac donald the piper was able to perform upon the bagpipes.' Such is the climax reached by the immortal Jeames in his recorded diary of the Royal progress across the Atlantic. No rhetorical description (says the Ijondon Echo of November 25), could convey a more vivid picture of the horrors of the middle passage from Liverpool t-o Hali fax. It is true, the patent swinging hammocks were worse than useless, the Sarmatian's decks sank under tlie seas which fell over tliem, her mighty bulwarks trembled, her sails were torn to tatters, and her very engines were brought to a stand ; but all this might have been borne had Macdouald been in a condition to cheer the drooping hearts of the royal company with his pibroch. But. alas! Macdouald during nearly a whole week was no one knows where. Not even a. guess is hazarded as to how lie spent the live days be tween leaving the Mersey aud the memorable 19th.

THE "GOOD NAME" OF CRIMINALS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

THE ' GOOD NAME ' OF CRIMINALS. 'Give a dog a bad name and hang him ' is an old proverb, and probably (says the Globe) its converse is equally true : for every dog that a bad name has hanged, another has been restored to social favour by a- good one. No one would wish that the value of a good name should be under-estimated, but reputation, like every other thing, may be tiu-ned to an evil use. We all know how often it is gained by mere outward seeming, to be used for fraud. It is j not, however, to this misuse of reputa tion that we now wish to draw special attention it is rather to the influence which ' evidence as to character ' often exercises in our criminal courts. That it should carry great influence with it there, as elsewhere, is just and right. In cases of doubtful evidence it may very probably often turn the scale in favour of the accused, but it is equallv important that juries and public opinion should weigh carefully the value of evidence as to character, and its bearin...
