HOMER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

HOMER. We Greeks having before oiir eyes the Homeric poems as they have been pre3 pared by the admirable diligence and criticism of the Alexandrine grammarians; and especially Aristarchus, and being assisted by those interpretations which the no less admirable diligence of the learned Frenchman Vallaison has revealed and handed down to us, and the more complete exposition which that of the indefatigable German Bekker has acconi^ plished, and culling from the Vast field of critical observations of the renowned Eustathius whatever is valuable, and, in addition to this, examining whatever more recent critics have written in expla nation, or tne .Homeric poems (and there is much that is worthy of attention), let us thus read and study our poet, delight ing in his immortal poetry, and, if pos sible, committing its more beautiful pas sages to memory.

A LITTLE MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

A LITTLE MUSIC. What stores of treasure are lost to the unmusical. Consider how abundantly it now enters into the economy of life. About us, all day long, we hear the twang of fiddles and the richer harmony ef the piano, the sacbut, the psaltery, and all kinds of instruments. Javerywhere is the concert, the opera, the oratorio, the glee, the song. For what public, what domes tic happiness is it not accountable 1 There is a pretty little German picture known as 'The Quartette,'' which hangs in many a musical house, and which is sig nificant of a hundred such pictures in real life. Four friends — three lay men and an abbe- -are working through some quartette of Haydn or Mozart — two violins, a tenor, and a bass. Such must be innocent men ; and the figure of the ' first violin ' is almost contorted with earnestness in his rendering and drawing out of a feeling passage. The old abbe', a cure, from the village, hard worked in the day time, is grinding with delight at his ' bass,' reading...

HIS HOLINESS THE POPE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

HIS HOLINESS THE POPE. The Roman correspondent of the Liherte (M. de Girardin's paper), writing'' on the 4th of July, gives some par ticulars about the Pope which are not without interest : — The Holy Father is now in his 75th year. He is of the middle height, or slightly above it. The ail* of Rome arid his sedentary habits have given him an embonpeint, not, however, enough to in convenience him, and which disappears under his ecclesiastical costume. His hair is white, though thick ; his forehead large and prominent ; the eyes deep set, and flashing with strange light ; all the features are strongly marked, but in harmony with each other. There are no wrinkles on that face; the complexion is slightly colored, but transparent. The mouth, somewhat prominent, gives to his whole physiognomy an expression of gentleness and of extraordinary benevo lence. Had Piux IX. been a prince, instead of holding the highest place in the Catholic hierarchy, it might be said that his visage was marked ...

COUNTRY NEWS. [From our Country Correspondents. J ALMA PLAINS, December 27. Your Stockport correspondent has informed you of the teirible calamity that has overtaken this and neighboring districts by bush fires. There is now, regularly as a hot wind day comes, a new alarm and clouds of smoke are. seen in some direction. It is manifest legislative action of a judicious and effective kind is urgently required, or we might all as well be living in the immediate neighborhood of a volcano. I hear of as many as 14 haystacks being burnt in the late bush fires ; and, poor as the crops are through the ravages of rust, many comparatively good patches of wheat have been destroyed by fire. It is difficult to estimate the loss sustained ; it must be ruinous to many. — So far as the reaper has correctly revealed to us the truth anent the yield of wheat, in cases where appearances! encouraged some to hope they were to have 10 to 20 bushels per acr», I learn that but one-half that quantity has been...
