LIFTING THE HAT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879

LIFTING THE HAT. Tiid minor loss of a man's property is included in the major loss of himself ; aud so, while he surrenders his weapons he also yields up, if the victor demands it, whatever part of his dress is worth taking; the motive for taking it being in many cases akin to the motive for taking his weapons ; since, often being the hide ot a formidable animal, or a robe decorated with trophies, the dress, like the weapons, becames ail addition to the victors proofs of prowess. At any rate, it is clear that whatever be the particular way in which the taking of clothing from a conquered man originates, the nakedness, partial or complete, of the captive, becomes additional evidence of his subjugat-iou. That it was so regarded of old in the East we have clear proof. In Isaiah xx.' 1—4, we read: 'And the Lord said, Like as my servant Isaiah hath walked naked and barefoot three yeai-s for a sign, ... so shall the King of Assyria lead away the Egyptians prisoners, and the Ethiopians cap...

SOCIAL HYPOCRITES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879

SOCIAL HYPOCRITES. Till-: most notoriously offensive social hypocrite is, to our minds, the man of sham geniality. Concerning even a real genuine ' genial man' it may be plausibly urged tliut he is often intoler able, lias he is almost always tolerant. He insists ou calling people ' good fellows,' 'excellent fellows,' whom you know by instinct to be pestilent creatures, narrow, conceited, and envious. Hv a peculiarity of vision which must make life very enjoyable, the genial man is blind to these tilings, aud no doubt be is tbe happier for his blindness. But that does nut make him any tbe better companion to people of lower animal spirits, people who are not always in the very pink of mental, moral, and physical condition. Oil the whole, however, people of thoroughly healthy minds and bodies .seem to be the majority iu this world — a thought which should be a great comfort to the philosopher who takes wide views — be- cause we do find genial people decidedly popular. Hence the tempt...

THE FALL OF EMPIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879

THE FALL OF EMP1I1KS. Of all the Empires whose rise and fall have been recorded in history, there is not one that luus owed its ruin ordecay to checking the lust of unmeasured territorial acquisition. The wisest of the Roman Emperors was also the one, who even recalled the boundaries of his dominions from beyond the Dauube. Evervnne rjin rlisecen Mini dt'iimmej. 1 111. private folly of tbe farmer who covets more and more land, when he has neither capital nor skill to turn to ac count what he has already got ; though lie does not commonly proceed bv covenants taken in the dark lest liis landlord should come to know what sort of deed he is signing. But it re quires a steady eve and a firm resolu tion to maintain the good tradition of all our bygone statesmen at a juncture when all tradition is discarded for new fangled, or, as Sir. Roebuck calls them, ' original '' devices, and the mind of folly finds utterance through the voice of authority. England, which has grown so great, may eas...

THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879

The Cabinet. The present Cabinet is tolerably well balanced as regards the two great powers or sections of the Opposition. On the one side Sir Henry Parkes, Mr. Hoskins, Mr. Suttor, and Mr. Windeyer ; 011 the other Sir John Robertson, Mr. Lackey, Mr. Baker, Mr. Watson, and Mr. Samuel. Mr. Watson stands conspicuous as the only member of the Cabinet who is new to office. But of a surety a man, who has in financial debates drawn the attention of the public 011 himself for his supposed knowledge of and facility iu figures, may well oe considered equal to the labours of the Treasury — labours which bid fair to try his fertility of resources and extent of capacity to the utmost Mr. Samuel has served under both leaders in previous Governments — under Sir Henry as Postmaster-General, and under Sir John as Treasurer. In the former he was certainly successful, and in the latter by no meaus de trop. His experience undoubtedly tends to characterise him as one of the most capable iu the new Gove...

THE EMBASSY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879

The E.mhassv. The first scene ill the sorry farce of ' The Fool's Errand ' has been played amid the j eel's of friends and the derision of opponents. No spectacle more humiliating to a self-respecting community than the procession in single file, on Saturday last, across the piauomi at epencer street, amid the ironical encouragment of the onlookers, can well be conceived. Tlie Brumma gem dignity of the leading delegate, 'as he uncovered and bowed his 'acknowledgments with the air of a ' monarch accepting the homage of his 'subjects,' must have been worthy of the Mock Duke. Pearson in his desolation, Patterson with his scowl, ' Old Smiler ' with his grin, the Major briuging up the female rear guard — what a melancholy parody of the earnestness aud enthusiasm that would have been displayed had the nation really been sending forth men iu defence of its rights ! The scene at Williams town was a continuation of the bur lesque. There was au hour to spare, and everyone, got tired of saying...

LAWN TENNIS PARTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879

LAWN TENNIS PARTIES. Just at tlie present time tlie most popular game of ball appears to be lawn tennis. As it Ls rather of tlie social aspects of this pastime than of the game itself that we wish to treat, we shall not enter into its intrinsic merits. Most people seem to be agreed that at-homes for lawn tennis bear very favonrablc comparison with at-liomus for croquet, and the latttercan scarcely j. ? be said any longer to exist. Socially speaking the great merits of lawn tennis were found to be tliat the games were .short, and involved a considerable amount of physical exercise, so that much enjoyment might be derived from j them even during tlie space of an , ordinary morning call. It also proved to be admirably suited for garden j parties, as from four o'clock till seven ' afforded ample time for as many games : as any reasonable person could possibly wish for ; indeed, three hours gave opportunities for several relays of visitors to play in turn at each court, and most people a...

ARE WISHER VAIN! [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879

ARE WISHES VAIN ! Persons inclined to take a melancholy view of life, are very apt to point to the failure of men's wishes as a proof of tlie the failure of tlieir lives and the vanity of wishing. There is no disputing the fact that a very large proportion of our wishes never come to pass. The little girl longs for the doll that she will never clasp, and the boy for the drum that he will llever beat. The youth wishes for fame and he lives iu obscurity ; lie hopes for riches, and is always poor ; or he pines for a love whieli he never obtains. So through life we are all continually wishing, and continually being disappointed. Even our pleasures and satisfactions do not usually come to us in the way we had planned ; some times. indeed, tliey seem to spring from the. very ashes of our dead hopes. Yet to argue from this that life is a cheat and human wishes are vain, is only to prove that we have misunder stood the meaning of life and the function of wishes. If anyone will look over the...

THE DANGERS OF FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879

The Dangers qf Fibe. In case of sudden fire or panic in most of our colonial theatres, the means of egress are so insufficient and the arrangement of the seats is so faulty that there is little doubt there tfould, in most cases, be a repetition of the late fatal occurrence at the Coliseum Music Hall in Liverpool. Here, again, the Americans seem to manage things better than we do. In all American places of amusement the lobbies are roomy and large. All doors both inside and out side the house open outwards. An iron curtaiu is always in readiness— not allowed to get rusty and stiff— to cut off the stage from the body of the house in case of fire. Scarcely a pantomime season occurs in England without some fire accidents. In such a case, how simple would be this device. Again, on the roofs of American theatres, there are tanks, containing an enormous quantity of water. In many of them there are admirable baloonies running ; round the building, on which numerous . wide windows ojien, and...

GREEK AND ROMAN SHOES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879

GREEK AND UtOAIAN SHOES, j Shoes may be generally classed as coverings for the feet, commonly mode of leather. If furnished with a top for enclosing the lower part of the leg, it is called a boot. The oldest form is that of saudal, a flat sole to be worn under tlie foot, aud secured to it by thongs in various ways. The ancient Egyptians made sandals of leather, and others, for the priests, of palm-leaves aud papyrus. Specimens from their tombs are preserved in the British Museum, formed of strips of palm leaves nicely fitted together, aud fur nished with bands of the stem of the papyrus. The Hebrews used similar protections for the feet, sometimes formed of linen and of wood, while those for soldiers were of brass or iron. Among the ancient Greeks and Romans the use of shoes was not general. Spartan youths were trained to go barefoot, and the heroes of Homer are usually described as without shoes when armed for battle. Greek women, however, wore shoes, and their use finally became u...

THE BUZZING OF INSECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879

THE BUZZING OF INSECTS. | The old naturalists thought generally that the buzzing of insects was produced by the vibrations of the wing, but they had scarcely attempted to analyse this phenomenon, and their opinion was abandoned when Reaumur showed that j when the wings are cut a blow-fly con- ! tiuues to buzz. Other explanations of j the phenomenon have been advanced by | various naturalists, but none of them are satisfactory; M. Jousset de Bellesme has been making some investi gations 011 the subject, and, after proving that previous theories are un satisfactory, he describes the results of his own researches. To avoid confusion, it should be distinctly understood what is meant by buzzing. Iu the scientific acceptation it means to imitate the sound of the humble-bee, which is the type of buzzing insects. But tbe humble-bee gives out two very different sounds, which are an octave of each other — h grave sound when it flies and a sharp sound when it alights. We say, then, that buzzin...

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. SIR HENRY AND SIR JOHN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879

SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. Sm Hkxry and Sir John. Sir John' said he bade the Assembly farewell for ever; butlie did not say that he intended to forego the sweets of ease ot the Council board, which it may be supposed Is the just reward of political toil in the Assembly. When he spoke his last words to Mr. Speaker he was evidently chagrined and exas perated at the conduct of the House, because he found that in the face of three parties there could be 110 government carried 011. We have repeatedly pointed out the difficulty that any Minister has to contend with in any representative asseaibly, but least so in a House of Commons at the present moment than in this Assembly. But in the House of Commons that difficulty would be paramount were peace restored to the British arms, and affairs settled down to their old style. Calmer reflection and a little friendly counsel have evidently pointed out to Sir John that to leave his former opponent, with whom, if we are to take Sir Henry Parkes's asser...

THE FIRST BREACH OF PROMISE OF MARRIAGE CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879

THE FIRST BREACH OF PRO- j MISE OF MARRIAGE CASE, j According to the records, the first person who was sued for breach of j promise was a woman — -a widow lady j named Phillippe de Monoespendon, whose husband, a rich Piedmoutese, | died while she was yet young, and left I her without what arc called incum- j brances. She soon had several suitors. One, a certain Marquis de Saluces, she so encouraged that he considered himself her accepted suitor, aud indeed believed the day for his marriage set, and went with the widow from Turin to Paris with the understanding, so he declared, [ that their marriage should be consum mated on his arrival. However, on the journey he probably proved himself an unpleasant com panion, for 011 reaching the great city she denied her promise, and when he attempted to argue with her coolly dis missed him. ' Your lodging, sir,' she said, ' is at the Hotel des Ui-sines, mine at the Hotel Saint Denis. Go you your way, not only iu this city, but in all the world,...
