TALES, SKETCHES, &c. "LOVE CONQUERS ALL." CHAPTER VII.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 September 1888

TALES, SKETCHES, Sue. .-iMSCaj' " "LOVE CONQUERS ALL" CHAPTER VIL-Continued. At last he whispered, 'Look up, Nina ! One day, please God, there shall be no shadow on this winsome face, and you have nothing now to reproach yourself with. You have yielded more than your father has a right to expect, for he has darkened all your life. But I cannot speak of that calmly; it maddens me when I think of all that you have borne, and I ?cannot have you look at me reprovingly, as you always do if I say a word like that." , I was foolish-forgive me !' said the girl, lilting her head. ' But if I have con cealed troubles from you, Leslie, I have neither father, nor brother, or even sisters to fall back on, like other girls have !' * You must not have concealments from me, my darling. It is no true love that does not share pain ! I am not a stranger now, you know.' 1 You always will jest, Leslie,' said Nina, smiling. 4 Oh, how awfully polite I shall have to be to you 1-and I always comforted myself...

AQUATICS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 September 1888

AQUATICS. John Teemer is not coming to Australia, so it is said. An American sporting paper says :-If Peter Kemp, the Australian who now holds the single-scull championship of the world, is willing to visit the United States and meet John Teemer the American champion, he can combine business with profit free of expense. Richard K. Fox noti fies that if Kemp will visit America and row Teemer he will give him iooo dols for expenses, and offer a purse of 5000 dols for the race. Searle has issued a challenge to row the winner of the Hanlan-Kemp race for £200 or /500 and the championship. If Kemp wins he must accept Searle's challenge, but if Hanlan is successful he will not pull another race for the championship in Australia. He will leave for America, and anyone who disputes his claim to his possession of the championship will have to follow him. On Monday night last, a match was made be tween Williams and C. Wood, to row over the Windsor course. Wood in an outrigger and Williams in a ...

Mortley, who has evinced no small degree of interest in the matter of once more unint'^hipt^ ^communication, 1 Mr. J P. Sharkey, the well-known Civil Engineer, was induced to visit W indsor for the purpose of inspecting both the River and South Creek, with a view to affording some information as to the best means to be adopted to attain the object in view. Mr. Sharkey, accompanied by Mr. F. W. Linsley (Council Clerk), Mr. F. Rosa, and the proprietor of the GAZETTE, rowed down the i Hawkesbury at high tide, and examined ,-the, various shoals along its course as far as the mouth of the Creek. He expressed the opinion that it would take an enormous sum to thoroughly clear the channel by dredging ; the only cheap method .by which it could be-clear-ed would be to erect a " scour," much after the style of that which has been placed nearly opposite...

MUNICIPXL ASSOCIATION. The si; ill annual scssibn; of the Municipal Assocfatirn of''New South Wales opened on Tues day, when riliont 100 rnpresentnlives \v«re present. The prin^nal business of tho day was the dis cussion oi the following resolution moved by Alderman Ball, of Goulburn-"That the Muni cipal Association of New South Wales considers that all taxes for municipal purposes should be raised from land value only, and that the Associa tion endeavour to have the above principle em bodied in the new Local Government Bill." Alder man Foxall seconded this, and a lengthy dis cussion ensued, two amendments being moved. The motion was declared carried on a show of hands, but upon division, called for by Mr. Wheeler, it was lost by 39 to 35. Mr. Wheeler, by the way, is a gentleman who claims to be en dowed with common sense, and yet says that " the present principle is the right one, and those who improve land have a right to pay taxation on such improvements "-in other words, if a ma...

PHRENOLOGY AND PHYSI OGNOMY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 September 1888

PHRENOLOGY AND PHYSI- OGNOMY. WE here give our readers the outline of a lecture on Phrenology and Physiognomy, delivered by Mr. Osborne Nash (master of the Grammar School, Windsor) in Campbelltown. Mr. Nash said that some would have us believe that phrenology is opposed to religion, because the old Book tells us "not to look on the outward ap-   pearance; but as much as possible on the   heart." Man, we are told, was created in the likeness of God, and being so, reason- ably his characteristics are worthy our study. Instead then of being adverse to religion, the science of phrenology should advance it, as an handmaiden. Let us ask ourselves these following questions, which should induce a man from the words of his own mouth, to study the subject : Is it likely that the study of a grand con- ception or beautiful object will decrease our faith in the Creator or Designer?   And do we honour a man the less after his conceptions and designs are univ...

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 September 1888

TOPICS OF THE DAY. Listen to me, and if you speak me fair I'll tell you news, indifterent good to either. ONE Thomas Joseph Hailoran, teacher, of Mur rumburrah, must be a man of a rather touchy character, judging from the fact that some little time ago he prosecuted a couple of frivolous urchins for calling him "old ducky." The name is certainly not very euphonious, but there is nothing in it to make a man mad, unless-to in dulge in a " bull"-the man is an "old woman,"   as the term " old ducky" would signify. If Sir Henry Parkes got his " hair off" every time a new nickname was bestowed upon him, the fat would be for ever in the fire. The old warrior has been called everything in his time-and, it may be said, he oftentimes had mud slung at him by men who were not fit to clean his shoes. No name has been too hard for him, and if collected, they would form quite a study-as evidencing the low depth to which political antagonism and hatred may at times descend. Parkes and ...

MR. W. DEAN'S PROPERTY. ON Monday last we visited the estate of Mr. W. Dean in Macquarie street, Windsor, and were struck with the {{real improvements that gentle man is making to the property. He is having the whole place renovated and the grounds laid out in such a way that when his object is accomplished the estate will be one of the most complete to be found in the whole colony.

The District. WILBERFORCE. (FROM OUR COKYBSPONDHNY.) As I was thinKing over the past, it brought to my mind the days of Billy Burgess, step brother to Edward lackaway. Billy was a smart athletic young fellow and passed away in the prime of life. He used to wield the bat in his day in 6uch a manner as to surprise the natives, and I thins if Billy and Ned were alive now they would show, as many of the old ones do now a-days, that they could knocK spots off all cricketers of the present time. Along in the Wilberforce cemetery, is the grave of John Scarvell a blacksmith who has rested there many years, but his tombstone, is broken in halves. This is a pity, as the inscription is the most no table in the burying ground. It has escaped my memory for the present but there is something about my hammer and my sledge and nails in my coffin lid. It would be well worth your while, Mr. Editor, to get a copy of it for publica tion. Coming on towards the gate is a group of all sorts and conditions...
