THE NORTHERN LAND. A DAY IN THE LAVA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

THE NORTHERN LAND. A Dav in the Lava. Few indeed are the dwellers iu towns who have any idea of the true nature of our lives iu the far North, whether us stockmen, bushmen, diggers, carriers, or any of the numerous occupations which go to make up the sum total of colonial bush-industries. Under the above heading I intend to record an incident which occurred a few years back on one of the stations in the North. It whs mustering time. Our horses were all mustered and shod ; saddles and bridles had been carefully over hauled, girths examined, and a good supply of hobbles manufactured out of that most useful of all substances — greenliide. The day's work over, all hands were enjoying a last pipe prior to turning in, lying out the while under the glorious star-spangled canopy of the tropics, -spuming yarns of adventure and hairbreadth escapes — yams which no doubt had lost nothing from having been stored iu the depths of minds sharpened by tlie vicissitudes of bush life. Lying thus in al...

QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

Queensland. A meeting of the leather trade was held at Brisbane on Monday last, when it was decided that a deputation should wait on the Treasurer, aud request that the advalorem duties on boots and shoes be raised from 5 to 10 per cent ; also that a duty of 1 2b per cent, be imposed 011 all kinds of saddlery and harness. The present duty of 2d. per lb. on leather is considered equitable. It is stated that there are fewer saddle and harness makers here now than there were eleven years ago, and this is at tributable to the impossibility of com peting with the Sydney market under the present tariff. The trial of Charlotte Ellis for the manslaughter of a child named Sophia M'llwraith is proceeding. The evidence shows that the child was treated with great cruelty. An inquiry has been held by the Marine Board into the accident which occurred to the steamer Macedon, and Captain Ashford has been exonerated from any responsibility. The Board | found that, while the pilot might have j given ...

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

CHINESE CHARMS. It may be said of the Chinese that from the cradle to the grave, from the highest to the lowest, the life of each is an end less chain of superstitious observances, of idol and myth worship, and of per petual effort to ward off the malign in fluence of evil spirits. Following are a few samples of the charms used for this purpose are given by the San Francisco Chronicle : — As a general rule, anything red is serviceable in this way : To mark the ' stops ' in a book with red ink will keep away evil spirits from the reader ; so, also, will pieces of red rags or strings frighten them off. As those wicked spirits very often mutilate helpless little boys unless duly armed against them, parents stitch a piece of red cloth in the pockets of the little fellows and braid the cue with a piece of red silk to pre vent fiends from cutting it off. Yellow paper is also very efficacious. Slips of this paper (i to I '2 inches long, inscribed with red or black ink, are suspended on bed...

A COUPLE OF NEW GUINEA FAILURES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

A COUPLE OF NEW GUINEA1 FAILURES. News of tlie results of two expeditions, one from Victoria and the other from New Zealand, to exploit? the North-east coast of New Guinea, came to hand last week. We take the account of the' Victorian expedition from tlie Argus. : Another attempt to prospect New Guinea for gold has resulted disastrously. In July last a number of Victorian ? colonists formed themselves into a com I ' pany and organised .111 expedition with the view of exploring the north-eastern ! portion of the island. The schooner ; Dove, a vessel of about 50 tons bnrden, was purchased and provisioned for I seven months.

THE WONDERS OF TOY-LAND. WHERE THE MILLION LITTLE BABIES AND OTHER CHILDREN'S TOYS ARE MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

THE WONDERS OF TOY-LAND. WHERE TUE MILLION LITTLE BABIES AND I OTHER children's TOYS ARE MADE. Wood-carving is the chief occupation of many a mountain village both lu the Tyrol and iu Switzerland ; but in no place has it been carried to greater per fection or been entered into more thoroughly by the inhabitants than at St. Ulrich. One branch of it indeed, the manufacture of wooden toys, par ticularly dolls, may be considered almost a specialty of the district ; for the little town of St. Ulrich is the great store house from which the chief toy traders of Europe, we might almost say the world, draw those rich and inexhaustible supplies which brighten so many nurseries and gladden the hearts of so many little ones. The art is said to have been introduced into the valley about the beginning of the last century, since which time it has been the princi pal employment of the inhabitants, male and female, young and old alike; for ancient grandfathers and grandmothers may be seen steadily p...

RETRIBUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

RETRIBUTION. ? ? I When a mother disregards the laws of j health in the treatment of her little | one, no matter from what cause, she suffers in the care, toil of nursing, and anxiety regarding the child 111 whose system she allowed to be laid the foundation of disease. And it will not alter the c.-ise that she did not know the laws she violated, or did not think of them, or was so placed that she could not pay to them deserved respect. Inexorable law is assorted, and slie is punished. When a man eats or drinks what does not conduce to tlie healthy nourish ment of the body, he suffers for it sooner or later. Nor will it avert the penalties that he can plead his ignorance of the effects of his indulgence. The diseased brain or disordered stomach vindicates the dignity of law. When a lady deceives her husband iu the matter of expense, obtains goods on credit when he wishes to buy ouly with cash, she endures the consequences, when the bills come at length, in the loss of his confidence...

THE GAIETY OF NATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

THE GAIETY OF NATIONS. Dr. Johnson, summiug uj- the life of his friend Gurrick, said tbe actor's death ' eclipsed the gaiety of nations, and reduced the stock of iimoceut amuse ment.' Boswell at once took exception to the plume, and courageously added a comment that, in Lis opiuion, the sentence contained an anti-climax. Tlie first half of it was stronger than the end. Most readers will agree with Boswell tbat his ' ingenious friend ' defended his own expression with characteristic subtlety. So very much of what is called pleasure, Dr. Johnson said, is the reverse of innocent, that any diminution in the stock of it is a serious loss ; while an eclipse from the com monest meaning of the term, necessarily implies a return to original brilliancy. The eclipse of the gaiety of nations is therefore a less serious calamity to the world than a diminution in the stock of innocent amusement. In many of Johnson's arguments there is more ingenuity than common sense, and we may safely leave tbis...

THE MODERN COMEDY HERO. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

THE MODERN COMEDY HERO. When our stage had developed puerili ties the ' modern comedy hero ' rose to view, and growing in importance as true taste degenerated, finally became what he now is — a cad of tlie first water. This impertinent creature, without being called upon to exhibit any histrionic ability, Ls now entrusted with the entire manipulation of the plot, poor and ineffective as it is. His fellow-actors involve themselves in con fusing situations to the end, tliat he may be called up to extricate them. They make love, marry, and quarrel, so that he may intrude his plated philosopy, aud they make a show of being good and virtuous only when he is permitted to take all the merit of their actions upon himself. The villains work out their destinies only to be completely baffled by his astouuding acuteness. Everything of the so-called heroism of the play is left for l:iin to accomplish, and all silly knavish tricks are con founded by his polities. He makes love either for himself ...

A WORD OF WARNING TO THE SHORT-SIGHTED. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

A WORD OF WARNING TO THE SHORT-SIGHTED. My .short-sighted brother, there Is much in you that 1 admire and respect. You beam upon me so benevolently and humanely through those spectacles ; you look so eager, and yet withal so business-like and respectable, as you glare along your barrels at your legiti mate prev. You seem to select with punctilious accuracy the very joint or feather where your shot Ls to lodge ere you draw the trigger. In short, to borrow a favourite expression from cricketing almanacs, you are to all ap pearances a ' conscientious and pains- , taking' shot. Here at least, one would tlnnk, is perfect safety for human be ings. But why, oh, my brother, do you so persistently stalk my gaiters if I am posted near you, and why fire at them if I spring for safety towards a tree 1 My gaiters are of a yellowish brown, it is true, but they are not therefore game. Take warning by the following tale of woe : — Iu a certain county in Scotland there resided a father and son, resp...

STAGE POISONING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

STAGE POISONING. ' A komaxtic chapter in the annals of the amateur drama has just beeu played at Ofen. The beautiful daughter of a manufacturer imagined that she could trace in herself the germs of a con siderable dramatic genius, and urged her parents to allow her to adopt the stage as a profession. The prosaic ' elders refused their consent, but per- I mitted her to satisfy her aspirations as | for as possible by taking leading parts ! in the numerous dilcllmite play -actings which are a favourite amusement of local society. She performed with great applause such parts as Louise in ' Kaiiale and Liebie,' the Kitty in ' Katcliehen von Heilbronn,' and the like, aud soon became much in demand. It happened that in nearly all the dramas in which she had to play the lovely heroine, a handsome young gentleman, of good family, who was also a little stage struck, played the part of lover. Theatrical love, on her side at least, developed into the actual human passion, while on his side it n...

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

CHINESE EMIGRATION. ? In Englaud. where food and lodging cost considerably more than in New South Wales, there are thousands of unskilled labourers who earn much less than 15s. or 20s. per week, on which they manage to support themselves and often a large family. But the China man's preference for living in the foul atmosphere of crowded rooms, and on the most meagre fare, is not without explanation. One Chinaman will go to New South Wales actuated bv die same motive which takes another to America — the temptation of higher wages. Indeed, England and China have one point of resemblance — both are over-populated. In China, the native finds employment with difficulty, aud has to work for wages which afford hut the smallest means for supporting life, such as a feed of rice twice a day. With the introduction of of steam into navigation a new vista is is opened to his view, new worlds are described, where gold is to be had for the working ; extra vagent stories are circulated by the ship...

HISTORY OF A WELL-KNOWN TUNE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 February 1879

HISTORY OF A WELL-KNOWN TUNE. Tukki; has recently been a great conflict of authorities over the origin of ' God Save the Queen,' and many have been the derivations given to this time honoured melody. But there exists a melody (says Vox Humana) even better known, with the history of which not j one in ten thousand of its many singers aud whistlers are acquainted. It is known in France as ' Malbrooke,' in England as ' He's a jolly good fellow,'' aud in America as ' We won't, go home till morning.' In Arabia it has a different name : for, strange to say, the simplest of our drink songs has been stolen from the Arabs (for the use of odi street Arabs). It existed among them as early as the time of the Crusaders (about A.D, 1200), and no one knows how much earlier. The Crusaders soon caught the melody, and set it to words of their own, celebrating the deeds of a knight named Mambrou. Through an error of Queen Maris Antoinette, who learned the tune from a nurse in the Royal family, it was ...
