A FURY OF THE CHEMICAL WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
A FURY OF THE CHEMICAL WORLD. Three things (savs Iron) were sought 1))' the ancient alchemist-the philoso pher's stone, the elixir of life, and the universal solvent. The last ol these though long ki.own to modern chemistry has just bee.i separated hut cannot he retained simpiy because it attacks or destroys every thing. Th's fi.ry of iho chemical world, say Mr. \Y. Matiicii Williams, is the eleme'it fluorine; it exists peacefully in company with ca-c.i.m in fluor-spar and also m a few other com* pounds, but when isolated, as it recentlv has been by M. Henri Moissau, is a rabid gas that nothing can recist. It combines wiLh all the metals, explosively same, or, if they are already combined with some other non-metallic element it tears it 'mm them, a: d takes them to itself. In Uniting with so lium, potassium, ccaliiini, ma; - nesuini, ami aluminium the metals become heated even to redness by the fer vour of its embrace. Iron filings .slightly warmed, burst into brilliant scintillatio...
DENIEHY'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
DENIKHY'S WORK. The little that we prosess with Deniehey's name on the title page is ample enough to prove that he was a great and gifted man. And though, if to that little we could add chapter after chapter of such sparkling logical matter as he fur nished anonymously to the different journals to which he contributed, it might attest and corroborate the justice of the verdict passed on him by his admirers, it would hardly augment his fame, save in the opinion, perchance, of those who (as we have just said) gauge genius by the bulk of its productions. Deniehy's life was a failure. Granted. Yet, are there Vivas due sometimes to those who have failed! Marlowe's life was a failure; so was Villon's; so was Keat's. yet shall we deny that Fame, the meed of Genius, en circles each of those names ? l'oor Heniehy ! He was a sinner on the one side of his life (as most men are), and inslead of a pattern career he ran a wasteful and an inharmonious one -yet j ere he passed away, a wreck in good...
TALES, SKETCHES, &c. "LOVE CONQUERS ALL." CHAPTER VIII—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
TALES, SKETCHES, &c. "LOVE CONQUERS ALL." CHAPTER VIII-Continued. ' Yes; quite. I have made a model, j and 1 need only to make a few more ex periments by myself to add certainty to certainty, but they are hardly needed.' ' But have you thought how you will make papa believe that it is really what is wanted ?' said Nina, half afraid still at the idea of failure. 4 He will be sure to disbelieve it, whatever he really thinks.' ' I have thought of everything. He knows and acknowledges that all my ideas and suggestions hitherto have been successful. I am not saying this boast fully. He knows that I have never failed in any of the mechanical work he has seen ; and if I tell him that I have proved it, he will know that I have reason for saying so. He may affect to disbelieve, but I know at heart he will admit I am right; and I know, more, that he will yield to my demand. Don't look at me so, Nina ; it will be no meek request. I shall tell him sufficient to show him clearly that I h...
LITTLE JIM. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
LITTLE JIM. Odr little Jim Was such a limb H is mother could scarce manage him. His eyes were blue, And looked you through, And seemed to say, " I'll have my way !" His age was six, His saucy tricks, But made you smile Though all the while You said " You limb, You wicked Jim Be quiet, do!" Poor little Jim ! (D«r eyes are dim When soft and low we speak &lt;of him. .No clatt'ring shoe .X^oes running through The silent room Now wrapped in gloom, So still he lies, With fast shut eyes, No need to say, Alas ! to day, " You little limb, You baby Jim, Be quiet, do I"

LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
LOCAL AND GENERAL. THE HON. JAMES WHITE.-It is understood that the Hon. James White has leased the estate owned by Mr. Arthur Dight, and situated near Clarendon. Mr. Dight, whose wife died some few weeks ago, has, we hear, left Clarendon Park, and taken away all the furniture, so that even this step gives some colour to the rumour now current that the Hon. James White is coming amongst us. It will be a good thing for the district should it turn out to be true, and there is no doubt that the estate is eminently suiced for the uses to which this gentleman would put it. [We have since learned that the rumour is incorrect, though Mr. Dight and his family have left Clarendon.] BLASTING ACCIDENT. - One day last week, whilst Mr. Peter Brennan, a well-known resident of M'Grath's Hill, was at work near Parramatta, and was in the act of firing a fuse, a bag of blast ing powder, which he took from the ground, ex ploded, and injured one of his hands very much. Under Dr. Callaghan's treatment he...

SPRING'S DELUSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
SPRING'S DELUSIONS. If there is anything in Nature which can awaken enthusiasm and arouse the heart of men and women, it is to found at the present secson of the year. Poets have sung about it ; artists have gone wild over it, and meanwhile the beautiful Spring has gone on ltring people to their graves. Under every blade of springing grass in the germ of death. Beneath every budding tree lurks the demon of disaase. It is not necessary to enquire why this is so ; it is sufficient to know that it is so. And that it is so, the languid feeling of nearly every individnal amply shows. The sluggish con dition of the blood ; the malarial poisons which are drawn in with every breath ; and the germs of disease that are absorbed in innumerable ways all prove the dangerous nature of the season that divides the Winter and Summer. But the query naturally arises : " How can this be prevented ?" The Spring comes every year and must be met. It may be dangerous, but how can it be avoided ? There is p...
NELSON. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
NELSON. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] A terrible bash fire was witnessed at Nelson last week, the flames raging thirty feet high in places and travelling at the rate of two miles an hour. When the fire was first noticed, cooeying was heard which alarmed all the neighbours, who hurried to the spot, to assist to the best of their ability. The men tackled to work like niggers some of them being almost singed, but they would not give in until they could scarcely make a walk of it. A fresher one would cry out, " Wire in boys,-don't give it best," but they responded, "I'm done." Not contented with this, they knuckled down again and again, until they got it under control. Among the party were Messrs P. Mc Guire, J. Ouvrier, W. Pogson, C. Martin C. Cranston, W. Bowd, M. Mitchell and brother, W. Saunders, J. Cusack, T. Mc Guire, W. Cusack, W. Clark and family, the latter gentleman hav ing narrowly escaped from losing house, stables, out-houses and stacks. Mr. T. J. McGuire, a young industrious sel...
UNFIT FOR HUMAN FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
UNFIT FOR HUMAN FOOD. Only a week or two since the colonial public was startled by the announcement that a Sydney butcher had been heavily fined for having on his premises a quantity of meat unfit for human food, horseflesh, to wit. Now, the colonists have every reason to be thankful that protection is afforded them in this direction, otherwise unscrupulous butchers, eager to amass wealth in the easiest possible manner, might continuously ply them with food of not only a disagreeable but of a dangerous character, and do it with impunity. A matter of an almost similar character to that quoted has just been brought under our notice, and as it is one which affects the community at large, we think it right to give it full publicity. It appears that a few weeks ago, several head of cattle, suffering from pleuro, were grazing on a common in the district, and these beasts suddenly disappeared, no one knows whither, though the presumption is that they were killed in the ordi nary way, and d...
WISEMAN'S FERRY. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
WISEMAN'S FERRY. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] ACCIDENT TO THE PUNT.-One day last week, ?whilst Constable Gilbert was being ferried across the river, the wire broke, and but for the exertions of the passenger and the puntman, the punt must have drifted away and been wrecked on the rocks opposite. The broken wire was joined with a piece of rope, and the journey was accomplished in safety. MR. STEVENSON.-Mr. Stevenson, M.P. for Wollombi, has been asked by several local electors to contest the Hawkesbury at the next election, but he has decided not to leave the electorate which has returned him triumphantly on two occasions. BUSH FIUES, extending over many miles all around Wiseman's Ferry, raged all last week Several farmers had great difficulty in saving their orchards and homesteads from the destructiv e ele ment. The fires have caused some damage to the telegraph lines, yet not as much as the hurricane that swept over the district for several hours on Thursday week last, blowing trees d...
