This box, or rather tho original — for it is com posed of no fowor than sovon boxos in ono, and tho box is tho smallest of all — was only an ordinary horn 'baccy' box, tho gift of ono. of tho ovorsoors of St. Margaret's to tho convivial club to which ho thon boloriged in tho year 1713.

A Little Chapter on Dwaris. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 3 July 1879
A Ejittle ChapteH' on IDwarfs. ' Deatji of Tom Thumb !' Though there aro giants in these days — in the pantomincs of tho Gaiety and Covent Gardens — there may yet have been felt by many a pang of regret when it was announced that Tom Thumb had died in his hativo place in Hol land, of dropsy, and that liis real-iiuine was .Tau Hannema. We aro happy that the gonial man who lias long been1 familiarly known in this country as Tom -Thumb is still alive. It was the Tom Thumb of Holland who died on Thursday, January 9. 'The last-named dwarf was known in Holland as Admiral Van Tromp. He .was born in 1839. at Fraucka, in Frieslaiid, and was but 28 inches in height when he visitod the metro polis fust. Like Tom Thumb himself, and nice tno accoinpJisiiea Huron Littlefiuger ami his brother, shown a few months ago nt tho Westminster Aquarium, in conjunction with .tho Two-headed Nightingale, Admiral Yan Iromp possessed groat natural mtolligonce, and was .exceedingly aefcivo. -.- Ho was; more over...

Fruits of Black Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 3 July 1879
Fruits of Black Wednesday. It suited Sir George Bowen in delivering his public speeches to present himself as a man of the most tender sensibility, and literally gushing with sympathetic omotion. ! If that character has any shado of truth wo would wish the ex-Govornor no more acute punishment for his heartless participation in Black Wednesday than what would result from the perusal of a recent issue of the 'Daily Telegraph,' recounting tlio circum stances of the death of Mr. Thomas Abcott, one of the victims of that foul act of political ruffianism. Mr. Abcott was a senior clerk in the Education Department, and was dis missed on Black W ednosday by the ' gallant Major' who presides over that department. Ho accepted tho fate dealt out to him by tho ruthless hands administering the Govern ment, and applied for his compensation. This, however, he was not ablo to got paid in full, and consequently his project of I warring in ousiness was shipwrecked. Headers ? will remember tho mendacio...

The presont session of Parliament, which in spito of ministerial government good inten tions regnrdingaspoody prorogation, continues to drag its tedious length along, seems likely, so far ns practical rosults aro concorned, to bo remarkable for nothing so much as for tlio advance in public estimation which will havo been made by tho Legislative Council : and this has come to pass, it is particularly worth while to observe, through tho action of that body in dealing fearlessly with mea sures which have como to thorn orraj'ed in all the advantage, wlmtover it may be worth, of having passed with largo majorities in tlio Lower House. The Gagging Bill, and the Chinese Immigration Bill have afforded the most conspicuous examples of this!
