POETRY. THE BEAM AND THE MOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 24 April 1877
POETRY.' THE BEAM AND THE MOTE. The eagerness 'with which we all seize on the mote in our brother's eyes, whilst blind to the beam in our own, is amusingly set forth in the following lines from the New Haven Register: — The minister said last night, says he, ' Don't bo afraid of givin' ; If your life ain't worth nothin' to other folks Why what's the use of livin' ?' And that's what I says to my wife, says I, '????' There's Brown, the miserable sinner, He'd sooner a beggar would starve than give A cent towards buying a dinner. I tell you our minister is prime, he is, . But I couldn't quite determine 'When I heard him a-givin' it right and left Just who was hit by his sermon. 'Of course, there couldn't be no mistake ' 'When he talked of long-winded prayin', For Peters and Johnson they sat and scowled At every word he was sayin'. And the minister he went on to say, ' There's various kinds of cheatin', And religion's as good for every day ? ,, As it is to bring to meetin'. I don't think...

THE SCRIPTURE LESSONS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 24 April 1877
THE SCRIPTURE LESSONS IN PUBLIC . SCHOOLS. The following is the preface to the first volume of scripture lessons used in the Pub lic Schools in New South Wales.: — ' These Lessons, as the name imports, are drawn from the sacred volume, and are almost en tirely in the language of Scripture, trans lated literally from the original. 'When passages are introduced not in Scripture lan guage (chiefly summaries of some portion of the narrative;, they are enclosed between brackets, and usually distinguished by being printed in smaller type. ' These selections are offered, not as a substitute for the sacred volume itself, but as an introduction^ it; and they have been compiled in the hope of their leading to a more general arid more profitable perusal of the Word of God. The passages introduced have beenchoseni not as being of more im portance than the rest of the Scripture, but merely as appearing to1 be most level to the understanding of children and youth at school, and also as being best...
JOTTINGS FROM GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 24 April 1877
JOTTINGS FROM GOULBUBN. By Cousin Will. One of the most popular questions of the day as concerns the Goulburn district is the half -holiday agitation. Everybody talks' about it, which fact makes it popular. It was announced by advertisement in the local papers that the representatives of be tween forty and fifty business places had agreed to accede to the request of employees, and would commence to close their respec tive establishments from the first Saturday in April, viz. , the 7th instant. The shops were to be closed at one o clock, and not opened again till Monday morning ; Friday night being chosen for the transaction of business instead of the Saturday as hereto fore. With one or two exceptions only, all those who had promised came to the scratch. Several storekeepers, however, boldly held out against the movement from the begin ning, and opened and shut as they had done of old. On the following week, ending the 14th, I notiped that several more who sighed the agreement gave ...
TUMBERUMBA. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 24 April 1877
TUMBERUMBA. Our correspondent reports that a few days since an accident occured at Mtin daroo, the victim being* a young man named William Bell. From the report to hand it appears that the young man was in the act of discharging a gun when it failed to go off. On examining the piece by some means ov other it dis charged, and his head was frightfully shattered. Death, of course,, ensued; and at a magisterial enquiry a verdict was returned oi aeain dv acciuent. This is another lamentable case of the incautious use of fire-arms. The de ceased was much respected : and the family have to mourn the loss of a fine young man thus suddenly deprived of life. A large concourse of persons fol lowed the remains to their resting place at Tumberumba ; and no clergyman, be ing at hand, 'the service at the grave was read by one of the missionaries from Sydney now here on circuit.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 1 May 1877
MISCELLANEOUS. The South Australian Wheat Market. — The South Australian Advertiser says: — Turning to the question of how much of the wheat yield will be available for exportation, we may calculate, assuming that the increase on the land brought under wheat cultivation will be the same during the coming year as during the past twelve months, namely, 189,129 acres, and that seed will have to be provided for 1,257,078 acres, it may be fairly estimated that the quantity' of seed required will be about 1,683,837 bushels. Allowing for the increase of population dur ing the twelve months, we may estimate that about 1,278,500 bushels will be required for food. Deducting these two items from the total yield, a surplus of 2,926,232 bushels, or, in the form in which it is usually sent out of the colony, rather more than 79,087 tons of breadstuff s, will be available for ex portation. Of this amount about 30,381 tons , have been already exported ; thus irrespec tive of any surplus remaining f...

GENERAL SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 1 May 1877
GENERAL SUMMARY. I Attention lias been called, in both Houses, to a remark made by Lord Coleridge on tbe bench, when referring to tbe cost in tlie case of prosecution and conviction of tlirce men for poaching, that he ?would never grant costs in such a case, adding that the pre servation of game was for the amusement of the rich, and they must pay for such amuse ment. Mr. Secretary Cross read a letter from Lord Coleridge, stating that he was not responsible to any member of the IIouso of Commons for. his judicial' utterances^ and mentioning the names of several eminent Judges who had always refused costs'in such ? cases. The subject has led to much news paper discussion, A letter was read in the House of Com mons by Mr. Bourke from Colonel Gordon, announcing that the Khedive, had left his action completely untrammelled, and' that he had now every confidence in the total suppression of the slave trade and the open ing up of the country. , The Rev. Mr. Tooth was released from prison o...

The English and foreign intelligence which we publish in our present issue seems v to indicate great disturbance in the political atmosphere of Europe. There are now wars and rumours of wars on the Continent; and matters are be coming so gerious that even those who pay little or no regard, usually, to the * forewarning^ of the ' students of pro phecy' are bound, -to admit that there is a colour of justification for the statement of Dr. Cumming, as given in the tele graphic intelligence, that Europe is now on the eve of the greatest calamity that has ever happened to mankind. The interest displayed by the principal European Powers in the ' sick man's inheritance,' the tottering fabric of the Turkish Empire, has become historical ; and their zeal in showing that interest appears to be a constant cause of alarm Russia's covetousness in the. direction of Turkey seems to Be, mosj;;' strikingly developed ; and but *f»$ other European Powers, who do not wish to see the further expansion of...
