So long as Duleup Singh had sufficient money to lead a gay life in England all was well. but when he found that his debts were greater than his income, be asked the govern. menit to incrense his income. His request was not granted, and the Indian prince carried out a heroic resolution. He-refused the forty thousand pounds of the English, came to France, and proposed to become -an ally of the French Government, and with it divide the empire of his ancestors. Since Tonquin and M1adagascar, France is not anxious to undertake distant expeditions. So Duleep left Paris for Russia, where this Asiatic potentate itnparlibus hopes, to make the Czar understand the advantages of his. offer. The late James Grant, the novelist,- was formerly very popular in Edinburgh....

Ladies Column. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 12 November 1887

Whero True Heroism Is.-Curtists rode into the dreadful and dark abyss for the salf vation of Rome. It was a deed for all time to applaud and for all men to exult over-a splendid .xhibition of personal daring and of. patriotic sacrifice. .. ... * A good deal nearer to us in point of fact and time was the heroic front of Nathan Hale, the gallant young martyr of the American Slevolution;-whose last-regret was thathehad only one life to give to his country. - .

In a Dutch Church -- 1y visit was on Sunday, when it showed only its ability to accompany. with sobriety the. chorals sung b~y the audience gathered at the asual'after .noon.service. Nothing could have. been. simpler. 'There has evidently beenf io change in the methods of worship in Holland since the days of the first reformers. The church is an immensestructure, the size of the 'datliedrals of Europe. Only asnsmall part of it is used by the present congregation, for whose accommodation pews have been con. structed in a sort of parallelogram, a part of one side of which is occupied by the preacher. The pews are much like those seen in old country churches in new England, bare, un oushioncd with a few exceptions, and at my visit there was before each auditor a great volume of uncertain contents-as long as a Webster's unabridged dictionery. A .few pews ranged about the pillars, evidently be longing to the aristocracy, had faded' green, cu'rtains. Nothing else was to-be seen in the way...

At'the inorthern point of this line is Fort Simpson, an old post of the Hudsonr Bay Company. To this fort a young Englishman went thirty years ago, with the apparently chimerical purpose of Christian ising the savage tribes whose huts clustcred about the neighborhood.

CURIOSITIES OF SOUND AND VIBRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 12 November 1887

CURIOSITIFS OF -SOUND AND VIBRATION. Not many evenings ago, while a young lady was singing, the glass shade on a gas. burner broke, frightening the singer nearly out of her wits, and though the chandelier contained nine glass shades, the one im mediately in front of 'where the lady stood was the only one broken. Her voice, which was loud and strong, had shattered the glass. This seems strange, but it is not less than true. I know a person who can break a small tumbler of thin glass by holding it be. fore his mouth and making a peculiar trilling noise. While away up amid the Alpine solitudes of Switzerland a few years ago, I noticed' the muleteers tied up the bells of their mules, and was told that the protracted combined tinkling would start an avalanche. A?' dog' barking 'will make the strings of a pianoforte sound, and, after all, vibration `of the striigs is what makes all the music. ' Vibratidn is simply a moving to, and fro, as we see the pendulum of a clock do.' All things-hav...

Novelist. DAYS OF CRIME AND YEARS OF SUFFERING AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY   Reprinted from 'The Australasian" of 1867 by special Permission) CHAPTER XXVI. A PENAL SETTLEMENT. Handcuffed and heavily ironed, a week after my conviction, in company with the soi-distant constable and the two pro- fessional burglars, I was embarked aboard the shamrock steamer for Sydney, my destination being, in the first instance, Wooloomooloo Gaol. Of this establishment I can say nothing, as the day after my arrival I was removed to the penal settlement of Cockatoo Island. I had read, while in the Melbourne Gaol, a very elaborate report of the system carried out in this place, which, I am willing to admit, appeared admirable on paper. But I have always found, in the sad and manifold experiences I have had of prisons and penal establishments, that the impression produced on the mind by the mere reading of the details of discipline is something very different from the con- viction one arrives at when c...
