ENGLISH NEWS. REUTER'S TELEGRAM TO AUSTRALIAN ASSOCIATED PAESS. London May 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 9 May 1874

ENGLISH NEWS. HEUTER'S TELEGRAM TO AUSTRALIAN ASSOCIATED PAESS. London May 2. In moving the navy estimates, the First Lord of tlie Admiralty (the Right Hon. G. W. Hunt), represented that tho condition of the ironclads was unsatisfactory, which caused much discussion. The subject came before the House of Commons again yesterday when Mr. Childers defended the late Administration ; Mr. Hunt, however, main- tained that his views of the state of the navy were correct, and further said that supplementary estimates would be necessary but the Government did not contemplate a largo expenditure. The election for Stroud, for which con- stituency Mr. W. Stanton and Mr.S.S. Dick- inson, Liberals, were returned, has been annulled; us also the election for Wakefield represented by Mr. Edward Green, a Conser- vative. The overflow of thc river Mississippi inundated 14,000 square miles in '^WÊln^^m of Lonisûmv jô^kfrnsias, and~ ^Mississippi/* \; including a portion of -the best cottpn S plantations. ...

(BwtespQiitstnte. We do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our correspondents.] (To the Editor of the Australian.J SIE,-Ia last issue of your extensively circulated journal, I find that thc conduct of one of the pupil teachers of the .Richmond Public School is ex- posed ; and the question is asked, why does not the Local Board investigate the affair?. I have sought from au authoritive source the facts of the case ; and I find that the teacher in question is not wholly ut fault, although very great indiscretion was ex- hibited by him in the part that he played in the unfortunate affair. Encouraging the act (by en- gaging in the art) of pugilism is certainly not very commendatory in a Public School Teacher even under circumstances of provocation. It appears that the teacher and a 4 counter-jumper,' a very fastidious young gentleman were both of one mind ; they had actually fallen in love with the gay young Emma (a vin table man-killer), who is neither pos- sessed of beauty or...

THE GREAT PHILADELPHIA, . CENTENNIAL TOWER. Tho 'Scientific American' contains a sketch or engraving of a centennial tower 1,000ft, high, with which it . is -proposed to com- memorate the hundredth anniversary, ; of American independence, in connexion with the Great Exhibition of 1876. This sketch, or eugraving stands in the foreground of, the picture, and is grouped with tho; Pyramids of Egypt, Strasburg Minster,! St. Peter's of Rome, St. Paul's, London, Capitol at Washington, Trinity Church, New York, and other large edifices, with the view of showing their relative heights. The Tower of Babel is not there, probable owing to the uncertainty of its.'architectural construction, hut we are approvingly reminded that its builders said, ' Let us go and make ns a name,' and that it is in every way fitting for thc Americans to imitate the example of the immediate descendants of Noah.

THE BALAKLAVA CHARGE. WAS THERE A BLUNDEE—HOW NOLAN DIED— A MYSTERY CLEARED. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 9 May 1874

THE BALAKLAVA CHARGE. WAS THERE A BLUNDEE-HOW NOLAN DIED A MYSTERY CLEARED. Ar least we have an historical blunder grace- fully corrected, and a handsome defenco of a brave soldier whose name has been under a cloud. It has been popularly decided that Captain Louis Nolan, of Lord Raglan's staff, being an impetuous soldier, purposely miscon- strued the actual meaning of an order which he carried iuto authorisation of the senseless order of the Light Brigade, and that his only excuse was that he was the first man killed in the charge. Launce Poyntz, in the Galaxy, after reviewing the topography of the battle- field and tho position of the force, says : As it was, matters stood thus, when Nolan left Raglan, bearing the 1 fourth order.' Thc Russians were clustered on two hills, the En- glish and French cavalry stood looking on ; Lucan was in his usual nervous irritable state, when the gallop of a horse was heard. A tall slender young officer, with a trim figure and black moustache, was c...

-1* a quiet little Ohio village, many years á^, wa¿'a tavern whew* 1fcè stages alway chafed, and the passengers expected to get lireakfast; The landlord bf the said hotel was noted for hus tricks upon travellers, who were allowed to get fairly seated at the table, when thovdrivor would blow his norn, (after taking his ' horns,') and sing ont, ' Stage ready, gentlemen !' whereupon the passengers were obliged to hurry out and take their seats, leaving a scarcely tasted breakfast behind them, for which, however* they had to fork over fifty cents I One day, when tire stage was approaching tho house oi this obliging land- lord, a passenger suid that ho had often heard of the landlord's trick, and ho was afraid they would not be able to eat any breakfast.

Stye Australian. BpEmiRDAY, MAY 16TH. 1874. had occasion in the month of April 1872 I to advert to our Windsor School of Arts, and in the article referred to we pointed out very fairly that the Institution had deteriorated to a very large degree. The name of school im- plies that something ie to be taught therein» but it has been made the medium for pro pogating scandal, ill-feeling and low conduct. If we are to accept as truth what is generally rumoured concerning the Institution we should say that its name was a misnomer and that it ought to be called the school of ill-manners. If such is the case, the Committee will act judiciously if they take immediate action to counteract the evil influences at work, and adopt stringent measures of reform. It is high time that a drunken member should be prevented from coming there with a large German sausage, to assist him in his search after knowledge ; also that when a gentle- man has consented to lecture he should not be grossly insulted, a...

While in the attempt to rise, the young man to his horror saw thc dog gradually change into a monstrous pig, which knocked him down as often as he attempted to gee up. At the same time the pig gave utterance to the most horrid and hideous sounds imaginable. It must be here remarked, however, that while the pig was in the dog form he was quite silent. At length, however, the young man by determined efforts regained his footing, but no sooner did he do so than ho was confronted by a large he-goat, into which the pig wes gradually transformed just as the dog had been trans- formed into a pig. Soon the young man and the goat were in ' grips ;* but, strong and s...
