QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

Queensland. A fresh case of small-pox among the R.M.S. Somerset's passengers was re ported last Thursday, the patieut being a European, and a supposed stowaway. Splendid specimens have been ob tained from No. 2 north Lady Mary, Gympie, and good payable stone has been found m .No. 0 north Hilton aud No. 2 north Glanmire. Fair prospects are being obtained in the Perseverance leasehold. Another meeting of 6tockowners was held to consider the advisability of taking steps to start the Oakey Creek preserving works. No very large capital being required, the project will probably be successfully floated at once. This will not in any way prejudice the com pany in course of formation to work down here. We (Quecnslandcr) recently came across an article in a weekly con temporary, acknowledged as having been copied from a New Zealand journal on the subject of shorthorns as milkers; but which was -written for this journal, and had appeared in our columns a few weeks previously. Another amusing in...

DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT CHILTERN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT CHILTEllN. Chiltkiin was again the scene of a most disastrous fire. On Monday night, at about 9 o'clock, the fire-bell pealed out, and brought all available to the scene of action. Mr. John Hand cock's drapery establishment was the place where it originated, which was gutted completely, and nothing but the gallant conduct of the brigade, under the able leaderhip ol Captain .Marshall, together with the willing and constant assistance of the townsmen, saved the whole line of Conness-street from de struction, for both premises adjoining on east and west were alight. Mr. Scott's brick store was with great diffi culty preserved, and if it had not been saved, every building on the line would have gone, as they were all wooden. While one party was saving that side, the chemist's and bookseller's on the other side were in imminent danger, as the fire caught the rafters under the edge of the iron roofing. These shops which are all under one large roof, were at once rushed...

THE KELLYS. Melbourne, Wednesday, 1 a.m. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

THE KELLYS. Melbourne, Wednesday, 1 a.m. The following is an account of tiie interview with Messrs. Tarleton and Living, of the Bank of New Soutli Wales, Jerilderie. The above gentle ? men having reached Melbourne yester day afternoon, they .supplied the follow ing information : — Mr. Living, the teller of the bank, states that about 10 minutes past 12 on Monday morning he was sitting at his desk in the bank, when he heard footsteps appproacbing him from the direction of the back door. He at first took no notice, thinking it was the manager, Mr. Tarleton. The footsteps continued approaching him, when he turned round on his office stool and noticed a man approaehing from the back door. He immediately accosted the fellow, who had a revolver already levelled at him, and on asking the intruder who he was and what right he had to enter the bank by the back way, he answered that he was Kelly, and ordered Mr. Living to bail up. The fellow, who afterwards turned out to be Byrne, ordered him...

BRIGHTON AQUARIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

BRIGHTON AQUARIUM. I looked in at the Brighton Aquarium last week, and was much struck and and greatly interested by the remarks and anecdotes of the courteous natural ist, Mr. Lawler. The public who simply look through tbe tank glasses at the fishes have no idea of the wonderful interest attached to them. Their manners and customs can be studied with great nicety, and if the Directors would establish (as I am informed they intend to do) a process of instruction, if, in point of fact, they would do as at the Polytechnic — coralline instruction with amusement — what an interesting place the Aquarium would be ! It is impossible to talk to many people around a tank, there is not room ; but how easy it would be to show, by means of dissolving views on the disc, some of the peculiarities of instinct in the fishes, to explain them, and then to refer visitors to the living creatures in the building. What a school of instruction they might establish there. He has attached to his head a sort...

THE MODERN RAKE'S PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

THE MODERN RAKE'S PROGRESS. The typical rake of to-day is a develop ment very different from him whom once we knew. He may be still drunken and dissolute, but he is a drunkard of the debilitated, enfeebled, spiritless order — a brandy-and-soda tippling, cigarette-smoking, stuttering specimen of sesquipedalian humanity. He staggers about upon carnival occasions just as in the old days, but there is nothing firm at other moments in his tread, nothiug strong, nothing manly. It may be titled blackguardism but it is blackguardism without any of the old rollicking virility aud self assertion which his predecessor had. To the rake's progress, as the rake's progress is now ordered, the possession of a wife is apparently as indispensable as the accumulation of colossal liabilities. He must be in debt to all sorts of people — tradesmen, trainers, silver smiths — and he must have a wife. He may nfft be able to relieve himself of the second. His creditors may meet and meet in vain. One arrangem...

GRINNING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

GRINNING. People laugh not because the)' are amused, or because they feel hilarious, or because they are particularly at peace with all the world, but simply because it is the fashion to do so. Or, perhaps, it would be more correct to say that they grin, a grin being the nearest approach to a genuine laugh that some people ever attain. But, then, they grin with a persistency which would seem to indi cate that they have plenty of laughing power in theni, aud that if they would but consent to keep that power in reserve they would be able to indulge in an honest laugh now and then. If you meet theni in the street they grin at you ; if you look round at t i rf 1 1 1 during prayers at church they grin in acknowledgment of the compliment ; if you stumble across them at the theatre, and commit an outrage upon their corns, they grin as they writhe in their agony ; if tliev have to tell you that their wives are dead, or that they themselves are upon the verge, of ruin, or that some thing par...

THE CRY FOR RECIPROCITY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

THE CRY FOR RECIPROCITY'. lKNt'Mi:i!AnLio letters and speeches have been printed of late, showing that a somewhat purblind tendency is mani festing itself in many minds towards a modified protection. It is not so callcd in distinct terms, and indeed the name is repudiated emphatically aud some what augrily by those who are agitating for what is euphemistically styled 'Free Trade with Reciprocity.'' They pro fess to bold by the former, if only other nations could be induced to do the same. In the absence of this, they would not concede what they hold to be one-sided, and partial free trade. If other people will not admit our goods except on pay ment of duties, then, in self-defence, we ought not to admit tlieiis, unless they submit to a tariff of our imposing. Such is the ground taken, and such is the plea urged, and not a few unthink ing and shallow persons are defended thereby. Reduced to its elements, and stripped of its false verbiage, all such talk really amounts to this — that ...
