$jto*£8 and (ftommtitfa. THE Melbourne unemployed say they are rather tired of hearing about One man-one-vote. The pressing necessity is one man one square feed a day. MB. A. SMALL has been re-elected chairman of the Belyando Divisional Board, and Mr. J. Burn, of Betro, chairman of the Peak Downs Board. Mr. S. Griffin has been appointed Mtyuo of Clermont by the Government. THE Criminal Court in New South Wales is making short work of the numerous deposit bank managers and directors who have been lately hauled before the judges in great numbers. Seven years with hard labor is the usual sentence. THE Victorian Ministry are em barrassed by the difficulty of obtaining representatives in the Upper House, to engineer the One-man-one-vote measure. The Victorian Upper Chamber is elective, and their rejection of electoral reform means more than it did in the nominee House of New South Wales. THE Bev. C. H.

The Late Duke of Devonshire. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 15 March 1892

IT ia not generally known that the Duke of Devonshire (lately deoeased) was one of the most remarkable men of bis time. The fol lowing short biography of his life will be lead with interest:-" The death of the Bake, 'of Devonshire, though it can cause no surprise willbe very widely regretted. Politically he was sot a great power.: though his steadfast support was in early times valuable to the Liberal cause, and though since the Home Bule split he bad been chairman of the Irish Loyal and Patriotic Union. But in his vast domains the Duke was a very active and beneficent force. Xhongh of necessity his Grace employed agents and stewards, he exercised a wise and beneficial personal supervision, and no tenant or debtor ever appealed to him without his making fnll in quiry into the case. Courteous and affable in the extreme, he possessed at the same time a dignified manner, which prevented anyone taking an undue familiarity without repent ing it. His loss will be regarded as a per sonal o...

Jftpatafa dfomq. O'MAT.T.KY'fi FAREWELL TO HIS STEED. Pan® of my heart, my Doe, farewell ; Dark -was the hour when fate's decree; Pierc'd my soul with sorrow fell, AnH snatch'd thy gallant form from me; Oh, never sportsman lov'd his steed As I did thee, my peerless more; ? Queen of the turf, thy wondrous speed Was like an arrow through the air! ? Thy dash of foot and triumphs show Too well thy title, Flying Doe. Oh, never while life warms my breast Shall I forget the glorious day When Clontan, spuml on to his best, Tried to run from thee away 1 But ah, my Doe, they knew thee not, And many ru'ed their lightning speed; Thou pass'd the " great gun" like a shot, And caater'd home, my noble steed, While the judge, with cheeks aglow, DeclarM thee winner, Flying Doe. But envy shook her head on high, And rais'd up many a bitter foe; And Govett vow'd that day he'd try, With Reindeer train'd to beat the Doe, And friends he had, who rallied 'round To bring out Reindeer in good trim; The best o...

I know one was trying to get out of temper with another-something about the weight of the world. One said it weighed a quarter of an ounce more than the other; and that's how it was, I think."

CHAPTER LI.—THE DENLEIGHS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 15 March 1892

CHAPTER LI.-THE DENLEIGHS. About two miles outside Bowden, was a dreary stretch of land, productive chiefly of thistles. A widish brook intersected this piece of waste, and pollard willows of gaunt and weird proportions flourished on its banks. No other trees were to be seen, with the ex ception of three solitary straight poplars that stood sentinel over a bed of osiers, Ibe land was pnt to no sort of use, and had a man-and God-forsaken aspect rarely to be met with, bnt not easily to be forgotten. No cows erased ihere, no cottagers made use of the deserted place to rnn ducks or pigs out, no birds ever seemed to be singing in the im mediate neighborhood, not even a donkey browsed there, though his favorite herb was most abundant. A narrow footpath lay right across it by the side of the brook, Mid finally crossed the brook by a little bridge with a rail on one side only. The path was not much worn, as then Nrafc » mm direct toad than across these fields to almost any plaoe where it co...

CHAPTER LII.-A Dai OF MISTAKES. The gentleman who overtook Keziah and Hand, began in a measured voice of Bop pressed agitation " Kizzy, I have done as yon told me. I have not come near yon till the time is up. It has been very hard, but I have obeyed yon." Keziab crimsoned and trembled, bat did not Bpealc. Sbe looked piteonsly at her com panion. Then turning to Elworthy, she said wearily " Why did yoo come to me ? I am not worth the trouble. I have been frozen up and no thaw has come. I have no right to happiness yet." " Ah," eaid Maud, "how are you to thaw, if you will never let the sun shine on you J i I will tell you, Kizzy, it is time to have done with this sort of thing. The way you have ' kept Dr. El worthy at a distance these two years, is, in my opinion, as grave a mistake ' as the other one. Thete is no sense in it. f Of course, yon must come home and have I lunch with us, Dr. Elworthy." i " You are very good, Mrs. Towers," replied t the doctor. ** I will come." And without...

Social Evils. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 15 March 1892

Social Evils. THE Hev. Dr. Morgan Dix made " society" the topic of bis last Lenten sermon. He asked, " What is our so:icty ?" It Las almost ceased to have a national tone; the old American life and ways are overlaid and hidden : this is the land to which cnormouB delegations from other lands migrate: it seems a great assemblage, a conglomerate of many and strongly contrasted civilisations. Nowhere has there ever been a better field for the devil's double propaganda, and all about as are the signs of his activity. True, there are checks which still restrain the evil: but each day some barrier gives way.' To keep to the straight and narrow path of settled principle and living and purity of heart is harder nov for our young people than it was a quarter of a century ago, be cause a false sentiment, widely influential, condones their excesses, and even approves of their misdoings. It would be painful to enquire what kind of life is developed under the influences thus at work for the publ...
