No title [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

If the Gumly reserve case were uot so very strongly iu favour of the Wagga Commoners, it might be feared that the advocacy of (Mr. M 'Ei.hoxe would irretreevably damn it. Fortunately, however, for those whose rights have been ignored by at least three Ministers of Lands, the case is too good to be ruined liy even the honourable and irrepressible member for the Upper Hunter. The debate upoli the subject in the Assembly was a comical one m many respects. It showed not only a lamentable ignorance upon tbe {)art of the Assembly of the facts of tbe case, -ut tbe excuses made by those ox-Ministers who had anything to excuse, and the ad vocacy of those who were interested in Wr. Donnelly's utterly untenable claim, were alike remarkable. It doubtless is especially hard upon Mr. Donnelly, because it is only fair to assume that ho acted as hs did under the impression that the area he sought to obtain would be legiti mately gained by tlj» improvements. Had he attempted, witn his eyes open, to ...

CORRESPONDENCE. A CASE FOR ENQUIRY. (To the Editor of the W. W. Express) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

I CORRESPONDENCE. A CASE FOR ENQUIRY. (To the Editor of the IF. If. Express ) Sir, — A dry or two ago 1 was informed hy a police officer that a corpse was lyiug ou the bauks of the Miirnunbidgeo, somewhere be tween Darlington Point and Hay, and that Rome weeks weeks ago lie reported the find ing of tbe body to the coroner at Hay, but that gentleman, through the pressure of work or hot weather, has not found time to hold au inquest, and 60 the body remains exnosed to the wGalher. Now, Mr. Editor, I ask is it not a disgrace to a civilized com munity that the remains of au unfortunate being, who was supposed to have been murdered, should lie so long without au inquest, or magisterial inquiry, when traces of injuries received might have led to the discovery of a diabolical crime, but which, through the length of time allowed to elapse since tbe finding of tiie body, must be diainetically opposed to the furtherance of justice t 1 am not fond of rushing into print, Mr. Editor, bnt when su...

The Cleveland physician who main tains that shaving is a crime against health aud good looks is said by an American journal to have been ransack ing the Bible for texts. He fiuds in Leviticus the injunction : ' Neither shidt thou mar the corners of thy beard.' He infers that the children of Israel, while in bondage to the Egyptians, imitated many of their heathenish customs, and the shaving of the beard was one of them. Hence, the great Lawgiver condemned it most emphatically, and a careful study of history shows that the Hebrews generally discarded the use of the razor, aud the primitive Christians generally, imitating their example, wore their beards long. Tertullian, au emi nent Christian writer and father in the Church, says : ' Tho practice of shaving J the beard is a lie against our face, and an impious attempt to improve the works of the Creator.' The doctor wishes to know if David's men, who were shaved, only half-shaved, by the order of Hanun, looked any better ? Not then, ...

Tujjrk can !-e no objection to :m hoiinst j opjio.sition to Mr. (Jorj:i.ANj/.s efforts in j favour of tlifi licensing of railway re- j frcslinu nt rooms.

The question as to whether railway refresh ment rooms would be productive of ^ood or evil can surely be argued dis passionately without the importation of all the stock arguments of total abstin- j ence into it. The stock arguments of extreme teetotalers are as well-known as they are unpleasant.

JUDICIOUS FLATTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 February 1879

JUDICIOUS FLATTERY. Judicious flattery may be the most sincere homage in the world ; but what, renders it judicious is its opportuneness and the manner of presenting it. A judicious person flatters his neighbours even in his mode of greeting them. The ' How d'ye do 1 So glad to see you,' in one pemn's mouth, is perfectly different from the selfsame salutation in the mouth of another. At least, the effect produced is different. One pel son shall make you feel that he is really glad to see you ; a second lets you discern that lie docs not care a straw one way or the other ; while a third betrays the liact that he regards his unexpected encounter with you as rather a bore. The last is a detestable fellow; the second is a nice person enough ; but the first everyone pro nounces to be charming. It does not follow that lie is very greatly gratified at your presence ; but, without an effort, lie causes you to think so. He goes 011 to say how long it is since he saw you, how well you are loo...

LITTLE LIVINGS AND BIG BISHOPRICES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 19 February 1879

LITTLE LIVINGS AND BIG BISHOPRICS. j We know of one poor struggling clergy man, possessed of a so-called ' living' who lias died of simple starvation and poverty. Not that he bad not some food to eat. He had, but it was inade quate, and the constant struggle to make both ends meet, produced such a weakness bodily and mentally that at last the merciful hand of Death cut short the conflict. In one case a clergy man in this county who was possessed ot the splendid income ot ±100 a year and a house, and who had to keep his position and educate and bring up his family on this wretched stipend, died some little time ago of paralysis. Paralysis ! 'Tis a grim euphuism. Poverty is what should have been written on the death certificate. He suffered and was silent, poor and proud, starving and smiling, decorous in death ! Why should the wealth)' trouble them selves if beneath the surplice the heart beats faintly against the empty stomach, and the poor parson after declaring 011 Scriptural auth...
