ADVICE TO LADIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 14 March 1874

ADVICE TO LADIES. WE happened to pick up tho following stray waif tho other evening, and although it is dedicated to the ladies in particular, we do not think it inapplicable, at this time, toman kind in general : " If you your lips would save from slips, Five things observe with care ; Of whom you speak, to whom you speak, And. how, and when, and where." TUE Late Rowland Hill once said, on ob- serving1 some persons eater his chapel to avoid the rain that was falling, ' Many persons are to be blamed for making their religion a cloak ; but I do not think those much better who make it an umbrella !' lu domestic feuds, ' my dear ' sometimes ineaus ' my tormentor.'

The Australian. SATURDAY, MARCH 14th. 1874. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 14 March 1874

<&he Australian. SATURDAY. MARCH Utk 1874. WE were present at the meeting of the .Richmond Municipal Council on Wednes- day last, and must confess to being thoroughly disgusted with the way the busi- ness was conducted. It appears to us that anything proposed by Aldermen Bedwell, Price, or Ducker is at once to meet with op- position no matter whether the thing pro- posed is necessary or not. lt is quite sufficient that it is proposed by them for it to meet with a determined opposition from Aldermen Crisford, Guest, Tomkinson and Turner, who being in the majority of course can carry any- thing they like. They ride roughshod over all former rules and practice and do just as they please, and there is no appeal for we notice that the model Mayor leans very strongly to them. He moved a motion of Alderman Ducker's out of order on a most frivolous excuse. We do not know where he studied his logic ; but we are strongly of opinion that he has a great deal to learn be- fore...

THE SHADOW HAND. A THRILLING ROMANCE. PROLOGUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 14 March 1874

THE IHÄDÖW HAIB. _ . . _____ A THRILLING ROMANCE. ' PROLOGUE. IT was one of those calm, sultry nights, not very common in England, when not a breath of wind comes to stir the tall tree-tops, and the silence is so intense that you can hear the leaves rustle and the insects crawl. The sun had gone down behind a cloud-a black cloud, with a blood-red border,-and the air was full of portents, as the storm-king mustered his forces silently from one end of the heavens to the other. On these still nights, tho sailor turns a keen and anxious eye towards the weather-quarter, and keeps a steady look-out for the hurricane that is brewing. Whilst the landsman, who ' sits at home at ease,' waits calmly for the low growl of the thunder, and says, if he can, with a satisfied smile, ' Thank goodness, no one I care much about is out on the sea to- night f In a grand old mansion, facing southward, and standing amongst its tall, ancestral trees, with stately pride, three people were watch traeos of rem...

Selected Poetry. MUNICIPAL SQUIB. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 14 March 1874

MUNICIPAL SQUIB. Oh ! the gallant Richmond Councillers, What a medly they are, I'm sure, their equals can't he found. For persevering in deeds of daring, They set men staring the world around ; No one can match them, ? No ratepayer watch them While the clever Councillors, and cute Richmond men, Work new surprises by night and day. Sedate and steady, calm quiok and ready, They boldly enter and make no din ; Where'er such trifles as ratepayers warning's, That your amusement gives pain to him. Ratepayer in wonder with voice like thunder, Declares .such plunder he must dislike. His peace is vanished, his jpys are tar- nished, And gay or happy no more he'll be, Until those Councillors, and wild Rich- mond men, Are sunk together beneath the sea. SNUFFERS. Richmond.

A ROMANCE OF THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 14 March 1874

A ROMANCE OP THE SEA. I?HB Eden, a ship of over 500 tons burden ailed from London on the 15th October last onnd for Valparaiso. She was loaded with 56 tons of gunpowder, and-following the ¡tatement of the crew, as given in the Liver IOOI Daily Post-with a general cargo in rhich a quantity of matches conveniently [gured. The ship was making a good pas age, and all was going well till she had been ¡about twenty days out, when symptoms of insanity began to appear in the conduct of ihe captain. The symptoms rapidly increased |n intensity, and presently manifested them- selves in an exceedingly unmistakable manner. Atv midnight on 7th November the crew, ileeping in their births, were aroused by houting and shuffling of feet, and rushing on eek they found their captain with loaded ire-arms in his hand, gesticulating, raving, to have taken the matter üvery coolly, and i soothing the madman, ia their kind bat clumsy manner, they induced him to turn in again, ! he promising, like a child who...

A PORTUGUESE VIEW OF CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 14 March 1874

A PORTUGUESE VIEW OF CRICKET. Englishmen, to whatever part of the earth they wander, carry with them their national habits and customs, and even their games ; and sports. The active and athletic character Spf these last seems to puzzle the natives of iexertions is by no means associated with the lidea of pleasure. The English residents at ?-Lisbon and Oporto have each of them a /cricket club, and the rival clubs have lately had a match at Lisbon. The fact that a ¿núíliber of gentlemen residing at Oporto were labout to make a journey to Lisbon for the purpose of contending for the palm of victory jpn ¿he national pastime with their countrymen Mbhlre, excited some interest in the Portuguese pjapital, -and a Lisbon journal gives the fol- lowing picture of the noble game of cricket Iwhich, as being taken from a Portuguese point of view, will amuse our readers : H CRICKET MATCH, whose minds great muscular ÍHTOW there is to come off an interest íe of cricket match between the clubs of Lis...

THE STANDARD AND THE GORILLA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 14 March 1874

THE STANDARD AND THE GORILLA. Wo extract the following from the ' Standard? of Saturday last: We have no intention to enter into a con- ; troversy with Mr. J. D. Delany in defence of the letter of our Windsor correspondent. The facts of that letter have not been im- > peached. Of course, a Romish editor cannot { but be glad that a Romanist Mayor is in power in that town, and he cannot but be glad that Protestant supineness and indiffer- ence (through a regard for trade) helped the result. It is quite true that according to our .-.j law, in this free land, every man, and every sect stands on equal grounds ; but it is strange that a Romish editor should glory in < that Principle while hi6 Pope is denouncing it ? as one of the chief heresies of the nineteenth century, and an invention of the devil ! Pro- * testants are content with this fact or princi- ; pie ; but-" Romanists pretend to be so, are perpetually aiming at inequality by exalting i the power and influence of t...

NOVEL POSITION OF THE PARLIMENT OF NEW ZEALAND, [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 14 March 1874

NOVEL POSITION OF THE PARLE- MENT OF NEW ZEALAND, His Excellency Sir James Fergusson has lately been on a tour through various |£Qc vinces in New Zealand, and previons to start- ing on his journey he prorogued Parliment till the 10th February, intenaing a further prorogation, for which a proclamation was drawn up : but, in consequence of his Ex- cellency's absence it was not signed, and therefore could not be gazetted before the 10th. The document was sent to Christ- church for his signature, buc^ir James had departed from thence for Dunedin and other places, so that on the 10th February such members of the House of Representatives as were then in Wellington were compelled"tcr meet, and the House suddenly found itself in session. This state of thiugs created some anxiety among the members, as various ques- tions arose out of the position, notably, that as Parliament, was actually sitting, whether his Excellency could prorogue it without having duly opened it either personally or by ...

MISSIONARY EFFORT FOILED. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 14 March 1874

MISSIONARY EFFORT FOILED. AN amusing incident occurred on Thursday, states the Courier, at an hotel in Ballarat. A certain Catholic clergyman, who was bent upon a charitable mission (collecting for the building of a church) took up his quarters at an hotel in the Market Square. Here he in- terviewed all and sundry who came in to get their nobblers, and succeeded in winning several guineas, until a genial and good- hearted produce-agent was one of the suf- ferers. He gave his guinea willingly enough, but Tesol ved that a rival agent, welt known for his wealth and parsimoniousness, should not get off scot free. Word was sent round the market that free drinks were to be had at the hotel in question. Soon a crowd was ¡ collected in the bar, and then the wealthy Fluffum (the sobriquet by which the gentleman in question was known) was inveigled into the net. The priest seized upon his cus- tomer, and as soon as possible tried to induce him to ' shell out.' ' Excuse after excuse was pleade...

MAJOR WARBÜRTON'S EXPEDI- TION. [From the South Australian Register, Feb 16.] j JUST at the time when tho public are at a loss j to know how much to believe and how much to disbelieve of the romantic story of Andrew Hume s wanderings, information reaches us which seems to establish beyond possibility of doubt the falsity of one portion of his narrative. Major Warburton, who, according to his account, could not in reason be ever ! expected to make his appearance again alive, has accomplished the great task of journeying left Perth, hut pn her way to Misíaidé Ehe called at King George's Sound, and * thence became the bearer of the tidings which will give intense relief to the many friands of the major, and no little satisfaction to those who take an interest in the work of Australian exploration.

THE GREAT AMERICAN EXHIBITION OF 1876. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 14 March 1874

THE GREAT AMERICAN EXHIBI- TION OF 1876. PREPARATIONS for the Great Exposition at Philadelphia in 1876 are being made on a gigantic scale. A number of designs fur- nished by competitive architects have been considered by a committee of selection, and that of Messrs. Vaux and Redford, of New York has been accepted. In carrying it into effect, it will, however, undergo considerable modification, and, writes the New York Herald, 1 AU that eau be said with safety is that the plan of the building is rectangular, being 2040 feet long by 680 feet wide, with greater width at the centre and ends up to 952 feet. The governing dimensions on the plan is a square or pavilion measuring 136 on each side. The maiu parallelo- gram forming the building is therefore fifteen of these pavilions long and five pavilions wide, an area equal to 3184 acres. The increased width is obtained by adding on the long sides projections of three pavilions at the centre and one at each end. It will cover 36 acres. It ...

CHAPTER XLIX. THE CHAIN LINKED ONCE MORE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 14 March 1874

CHAPTER XLIX. THE CHAIN LINKED ONCE MORE FOR one moment the three ladies stood with wide open eyes of dismay, gazing upon the scene before them, in intense, fearful astonish- ment. From one ghastly object, to the threatening ground on the ground, then back again, as if fascinated by some awful curiosity, some quick desire to go nearer, to touch that white hand that hung down so limply over the broken boughs, and that, in the solemn twilight, seemed to beckon them to come to her, that her dead lips might whisper the secret of the murder in ghostly accents. But only for a moment thus then John Wrackall leaves the boughed screen he has built up and rushes between them and the picture. 'Miss Blanche,' he says, hoarsely, and you, gentle ladies, go away from herc quickly, ere tho lights come, and you read the secret of this dreadful night, to your eternal remem- brance !' 'John,' whispers Blanche, 'what is it? Has she-Oh, John, you have not done this ? -you have not purchased my safety at...

I could not choose one more dear to me than Mrs. Devereux would he if-if Hawley made her his Mfe. And he is passionately fond'of her, i'm sure; ^and for her, mamma, I-think she almost worships him.' ' So the mother and daughter agreed upon this, at all events-that nothing should come between these two loving hearts ; that this eligible match, so suitable in every way, should not be broken off on account of any stupid misunderstanding that might be re- moved by the intervention of a mutual friend. Blanche had slept with Hawley's sister this night, and many a year would come and go ere the two would pass such another hour as they had in the morning, kissing each other lovingly, with arms entwined about each other in sweet, comforting fashion. But the day is wearing on apace by this, and we are getting towards the late...
