A Chinaman's Notion of Australian Beauty. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 25 October 1878

A Chinaman's Notion of Australian Beauty. There is a snug little pastrol town in the far, far North-West, in which the ubiquitous ' John,' not content with his usual occupation of «ardening. has usurped also the more lucrative ones of milkman, dairy farmer, and butcher. All honor to him, for the climate is hot, and the white ' brother' either will not of cannot work* KevertkelesSj the ' butcher' Chinaman is looked on with considerable envy, for he is the richest man in the town, having a cash balance at his bankers, of .£5000 ' Johr gets his beef from a jovial-hearted hospitable gentlemanly squatter, a man of culture and tastej a good judge of a horse and of female beauty. Wetlj it happened, a short time ago, that our squatter friend was giving a helping hand to John to drove A' dozen 'fats' just purchased. Conversation had somewhat flagged during the journey, till when n^aring town a bright idea seemed to strike J ohn, and the following conversation ensued : — John (log.) \ Yjou be...

The Aboriginal Japanese. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 25 October 1878

The Aboriginal Japanese. The Rev. W. E. Griffis, of Schenec tady, fonnly an instructor in theGovern ment's schools in Japan, says : — ' The basts of the Japanese race, was undoubt edly a race of people called Ainos or Ebisus, who were descendents it is pro bable, of one of the hill tribes of India. Some opinions, however, have given them an Aryan orgin, and in that way account for the comparatively kind feel ing among Japanese toward the white race. The Ainos crossed to the island from Siberia, at the narrow strait about latitude 52' north.- This must have been some centuries before the Chris tian era. Some hundreds of years later perhaps about the time of Christ, the Tartars landed on the south of the island of Japan. Then began the struggle be tween the tribes in the north and the invaders in the South. It lasted until the iith century. The Ainos generally were then driven north to the islands of Saghatin and Yezo. Those who remain ed were blended with the Tartars; TTfincH the nre...

Parliamentary. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 25 October 1878

Parliamentary. The legislative Council, contrary to our expectations, passed Ihe second reading of Ihe Heal Property Act Amendment BilL and it was taken into Committee. The Sewers Bill was further debated, and the Grange Railway Bill passed through Com mittee. In the Assembly the Tea tree Gully Railway Bill was passed, the Education Bill also was further considered, but Mr. Parson's amend ment for free education was lost, and the House seems quite .content to leave the whole of ihe arrangements of the new system to regulations. We say distinctly that it was this mistake that ruined the last Education Act, and are sorry to see that hon. members are, whether from indifference or illness we know not, getting into a practice of piypring skeleton measures and then the most important details embodying even questions of principle -and policy are filled in by outsiders instead of being the work of ihe Parliament.

Burra Public Cemetery. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 1 November 1878

Bnrra Public Cemetery. We referred in a special article some weeks since to Various points of excel lence and demerit in the Burra Ceme_ tery, and one of the. special needs was said to be an extension of the ground, so as to provide for the constant open ing of fresh graves. We now return to this subject, because as the -summer approaches, and the number of inter ments increases as it always does in the hot weather, there will be the greater necessity for more room. We believe the Corporation has several times' moved in this matter, and that it is not their fault that the wall has not been already removed. There seems to be some difficulty about obtaining the title from the South Australian Mining Associa tion, though the extra land has. been promistd for more than a year. The private ground is not yet all occupied, there being a number of blocks .still apart for the public use the case' is very different. There nearly every j-art has been either recently or at some .part time opene...
