PIMPINIO. February 13. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 14 February 1882
(raOM oUm owa cORESPOnDEi'vj.' , February 13. Since my last e e have experienced~.iany changes. Our harvest returns are no longer a ues: tion of doubt, the returns being about half the quantity of last year's, saidini most cases and incre?aod area was sown. -This partial failure has not beenTo- seriously felt owing to the railway facilities and. the promising state of the market. The various wheat buying firms have been fairly repro sented at Pimpinio Station, and. a vast quantity of wheat has been brought in from a good distance. The weather continues hot and dry, con sequently our water 'supply is failing very fast. The Pimpinio 'Dam is 'now the only water for miles around, and the pumps are. almost in perpetual motion. If no rain comes within a fortnight it is thought- that this valuable source of supply: will be ex hausted.

Collision with a Whale. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 14 February 1882
Collision with a Whale. The steamship Newport, of Ward's Line, had an unusual experience during a recent outward trip to Havana. She sailed from this poet on Thursday, October 27, and before daylight next morning she was off the Cape of Delaware. At about 8 o'clock, when she was steaming at the rate of fifteen iniles per hour, she ran into an im mense school of whales twenty miles long and a quarter of a mile wide. The animals were of all sizes, and disported themselves in the water as if enjoying it. Suddenly the ship shook from stem to stern, as she struck a monster about 60 feet long, which was attsmpt ing to cross her path. The whale was cut in halves, which passed astern on either side, while the water was dyed red with his blood. The steamer came to a standstill, and her stem was ex amined. It was found to have escaped injury,but the stearinggear was slightly damaged. This was soon repaired, and the Newport proceeded, but the passen gers were not so delighted with the whales a...

Owen b Dale Owen was then the diplomatic re- ai presentative of our Government near oa the CourtofNaples. King Bomba was Is reignini. Dale Owen was a remak- cI able man. I had known him and his p father, Owen of Lanark, intimately in n Washington in 1845-46 ; they ad- g vocated the same views Fanny Wright h preached; but then they were men, not a women; and free love has always been ft a masculine privilege. Moreover, in h 1845 we were beginning to expand as a I Nation, and were more familiar with gi the license of the outside world; so p Owen of Lanark, especially was quite le the fashion in intelligent Washington ci society in that day; and a very agree- o1 able, charming old gentleman he was. tl When I met Dale Owen in - Naples al twenty-odd years ago he had gone over of to Spiritism, and was writing his n curio...

Chinese Camps. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 14 February 1882
Chinese Camps. The Deep Lead correspondent of the "P. C. News," writes as follows :-Two cases have recently come under my notice which shows the necessity of police supervision in every place where Chinese camps are situated. A simple looking girl, I should say of sixteen or seventeen summers, called at one of the hotels in this place and asked for shelter for the night, as she said she had travelled from Ararat that day, and had within a week come from Ballan, and was on her way to Horsham in quest of a situation. She was provided with food and lodgings for the night and breakfast the next morning, and got on her road to Horsham as far as the next hotel. Here she told a doleful tale of her long weary journey from Ballan. The good-hearted hostess of hotel No 2 was moved with compassion on hearing her plausible story, and allowed her to remain for a few days to recruit her strength free of charge, and on the morn ing she was to journey to Horsham, was provided with 2s cash to get mea...
A Fatal Jump. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 14 February 1882
A Fatal Jump. A Frenchman, named Louis Lacroix, aged 25 years, was found at half-past 3 o'clock on Tuesday morning lying on the pavement in front of Antonio's Hotel, Flinders street, having no clothing on except a shirt. The man was perfectly unconscious, and the con- stable thinking that he was merely suffering from the effects of drink, conveyed him to the lock-up. There, however, it was found that he had sustained serious injuries to his head, and he was conveyed to the Melbourne Hospital; but before arriving at the insti- tution he expired. Death was caused by fracture of the skull, sustained by jumping out of an upper story window at Antonio's Hotel. An inquest will be held. The deceased arrived by the last train from Gippsland yesterday, with a mate of his named Lavelle. The two men were drinking together until they retired at midnight. They both slept in a room on the third story, but Lavelle did not hear the deceased getting out of bed. The distance the deceased jumped was a...
