GREAT EARTHQUAKE IN NEW GRANADA. On the morning of the 28th of May, this com munity was startled by the appalling news of the entire destruction by aa earthquake of the city of San Jose de Cucuta, in Columbia, on the 18th instant, at half past 11 a.m. The first shock, accompanied by loud subterranean rumblings, levelled every wall in the city, and buried under its ruins in that single instant of time some 8000 human beings out of a population of 10,000 souls, and of those then spared many have since died of of their injurlfes, and others remain seri ously affected in mind. The account given by the unhappy beings who have fled from the dooomed spot and are daily arriving here, is harrowing in the extreme. The first care of the few saved, after they could collect their shat tered senses, was to succour those whose shrieks for aid filled the air on every side; but their efforts in many cases were rendered futile by the continued trepidation of the earth, by the explosion of powder and ...

THE SECRETS OF FREEMASONRY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 11 September 1875

THE SECRETS OF FREEMASONRY. There is a story told of a Freemason who wearied by his wife's importunity, informed her that the secret which is popularly associated with the craft was nothing more nor less than a pass word, consisting of the by no means classical'or cabalistic words, "Cabbage and bacon." . This she held like the sword of Damocles over his: head, till at last one night, when her patience . was exhausted at the prolonged absence of her lord at the monthly meeting of hislodge, "sHe resolved to be revenged, and repairing id the place where the brethren sat in solemn conclave, repeatpd, to the astonishment and perplexity of the tyler, *' Cabbage and bacon, cabbage and bacon." The poor woman, likemany people at present, thought the Freemasons were no' better than they should be, and that she was doing a: public service, aswell as revecging herself ?upon' her husband, by " physically and morally de nouncing them." In spite, however, of its manyv. enemies, Freemasonry flouris...

Sfctai JSitr. ROMA, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1S75. We would again earnestly impress on our townsmen the desirability of their taking im mediate steps towards having the town re incorporated, a step which would have the effect of placing our streets, drainage, and other improvements under local government, before neglect and ill-usage render the job one which will press heavily on all the ratepayers. Several months ago Mr. M'Ilwbaitu obtained' a grant of £1000 for the maintenance of the main street in Roma. How much, if any, of tliis has been expended, and what has become of the balance, or whether any of the amount was ever obtained from, the Treasury, are questions which can only be ventilated by a Municipal Council. It is time the suicidal policy of our residents in allowing this leave things-as-tliey-are state of lethargy should have an end, and this desideratum can only be accomplished by a public meeting of the inhabitants being called by, say, our Police Magistrate or any other...
