ENGLANDS BLACK-BOOK FOR 1877. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 February 1879
ENGLANDS BLACK-BOOK FOR 1877. The appearance of the aunual return of the criminal statistics of England and Wales affords an opportunity for ' taking stock' of the moral state of the nation. In the number of the criminal classes at large and known to tlie police, as well as in the number of houses of bad character, the returns for last year show a decrease as compared with those for the previous twelve months. On the other hand, a further increase appears in the number of indictable offences reported by the police, and though there Ls shown to be a slight decrease in the number of persons await ing trial at sessions or assizes, as well as of those summarily proceeded against, in the commitments to prison there was a considerable augmentation. The criminal classes, under which category are included known thieves and depredators, receivers of stolen goods, and suspected persons, constitute a formidable army of 40,860 individuals, of whom 5,588, or more than one-sixth, are under sixtee...
THE FEAR OF DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 February 1879
THE FEAR OF DEATH. Weariness of mere existence is a ) heavy, and probably a very common, secret burden ; one which makes the thought of annihilation more attractive to some of us than any celestial visions, i Those who suffer from it would not welcome the brightest prospects of heaven, unless they could hope first for a ' long and dreamless sleep ' in which to wash off the travel-stains of the past. This is a feeling which is probably most common in youth or old age, when the ties to life are fewer than they are in its prime, and when the past or the future may well look almost intolerably long to the wearied imagination. It may be that in the miserable experience of some sufferers this deep weariness of life may not exclude the fear of death ; but so ter rible a combination can scarcely be either common or lasting. Probably the normal state of things is that in which some degree of fear, or at least of reluctance, exists as a pure instinct ; rising and falling with physical causes,...

Tu i: rabbit question li:us asuumed pro ])ortions in Victoria which entitle it to rank with the 'iron band' or the Kei.i.y scare. The interesting little quadrupeds always possessed a thorough appreciation of the scriptural recom mendation to increase and multiply, and certainly followed multiplication as their favourite rule. But whatever their earlier reputation in this respect, they evidently determined, upon their introduction into Victoria, to prove themselves worthy of it, and at once redoubled their previous eft'orts in the cause of colonisation. Patriarchal bucks, grown even greyer than nature originally coloured them, become re juvenated under the Australian sun, and, smiling rabbit-smiles, at the en tiniicu to their burrows, congratulated each other on the extent and intricacies of their family-trees, and then wound up the evening by complacently spoon ing with the most fascinating does of the warren. Aud thus it was that the rabbit at Jirst rather admired than otherwise, b...
