SHOOTING WITHOUT A LICENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879
SHOOTING WITHOUT A. LICENCE. In these days a shooting party at a country gentleman's house is made tip largely of visitors from all quarters of tlie kingdom. Besides the host aud his family, there may be an officer or two on leave, or a college friend enjoying vacation, or a Foreign Office clerk off duty. Many of these latter conscien tiously take out their licence ; others even decline to shoot, aud take no gun with them, if tliev find that the number of days' sport which their holiday is likely to afford them will hardly make the amusement worth the . outlay. Others, and by no means a small sec tion, will take out tlieir guns as a matter of course, without a thought of the revenue, feeling sure that for the four or five days' shooting whicli they are likely to get in the season, and the fifty brace which will perhaps fall to their aim during that titue, it Ls not worth while to go to the expense, and that it is cheapest in the long run to risk the chance of an Excise prosecution. ...
TRADING IN HORRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879
TRADING IN HORRORS. Wu observed last week that the Thames collision gave rise to many strange words and actions, and perhaps none among these things is more astonishing, or, we may add, more disgraceful, than the line pursued by the Illustrated Loudon News. Out of eleven pages of illustration in Jast Saturday's number of that paper, nine were devoted to the accident and its ghastly results. It may be well to quote from the letterpress a description of the principal illustration : — ' The doleful and shocking task of groping in the bed of the river by means of poles and grapnels, and of divers searching the wreck for dead bodies, has been continued daily from morn till eve, bringing up an average number of one hundred each day, including those washed ashore by the tide. Our large engraving, which occu pies the two middle pages of this week's number, represents the scene during this melancholy operation/' In this I engraving no effort has been spared to I exhibit the horrors of the ' ...
FINDING THE SAWDUST. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879
FINDING THE SAWDUST. We all remember the storj of the little girl who, while sitting at her mother's feet, liaa torn oil' a leg of her doll, and expressed her discontent in the words, ' The world is round, they say, and my doll's filled with sawdust ;. and, if you please, dear Ma, I'd like to be a nun.' The child 111 her childish way expressed the dissatisfaction aud disappointment we ail feel at certain times and after certain experiences in life. She had just learned that the world is round ; she had never dreamed that the plump ness of her doll was due to sawdust until her own eyes had informed her of the unpleasant fact. It was entirely natural that, under such pressure of the unwished-for and unexpected, she should signify her weariness and distaste of everything by wanting to be a nun ; nuuhood being as ideal and unknown as all else that lay without the micro scopically small circle of her conscious ness. How very often we who fancy our selves veterans in experince, have the s...
NINETEENTH CENTURY NOVELS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879
NINETEENTH CENTURY NOVELS. How very few books of the present day can be placed in youthful hands ! They mostly treat of indelicate subjects, how- J ever much veiled in higiilv-coloured language ; they are spiced with double entendrcs, aud seasoned with inuendos ; full of descriptions of fast life, of the I liabits, customs, manners, dresses, jewellery, carriages, horses, and houses of questionable members of society ; of the entertainments they give, the society the}' affect, the money they spend, the fashions they set, their friends, aud their friends' friends — this is all part of the present-day novelist's stock-in-trade. It is almost impossible to take up a navel without fiudiug some mention of the class termed demi-monde, and the lives they lead. The heroes of fiction, too, now, how intensely absurd they are ! What wonderful creations these stalwart guardsmen, with vast frames, cleanly cut features, handsome as those of Adonis or Antiuous, aud usually compared to the one or the...
FISHING EXTRAORDINARY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879
FISHING EXTRAORDINARY. Vhje-Coxsui. Gak DNEit in his trade re port on I'oti gives an account of an ingenious method by which sturgeon are captured by fishermen at the mouth of the River llhion during the spring aud summer months. The process, he savs, is simple in the extreme, yet difficult to describe and hard to believe. A strong line or lanyard about 100 feet in length, with short lines attached at a distance of 0 feet apart, and having a large hook at the end, very sharp but barbless ; a small gourd is fastened to the back of each hook to keep it float ing point downwards ; these lines, hooks, and gourds, are neatly arranged on the gunwale of a dugout, or boat made from a single log, and run out quickly across the river, and are visited morning and evening. If a sturgeon in its passage down to the sea is pricked ever so slightly by one of the hooks it remains stationary, without struggling, or making an attempt to escape. The fisherman 011 reaching his lines carefully overhauls ...

THE SURPLUS POPULATION OF ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879
THE SURPLUS POPULATION j OF ENGLAND. I That great problem (observes the London Daily Telegraph) what should be done with our surplus population — receives additional force from a circular which has just been issued by one of the suburban gas companies of London. A collectoi, whose business it would be to go from house to house with a book and a pen, receive payments and give receipts, was advertised for very lately in these columns. To the notice over eighteen hundred answers, we are told, were sent, the great majority of the writers being fairly well-fitted for the post. This was not a huge ambition, for their only desire was to collect tolls at a very moderate stipend, and yet nearly two thousand persons offered their services. The fact shows a lament able state of things, aud recalls to mind the agitation which has lately taken place amongst city clerks for an increase of salary. There can be 110 doubt that a vast number of people are thrown upon the world devoid of any special k...
POLITICAL AFFAIRS IN SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879
POLITICAL AFFAIRS IN Sl'AlN. A\ important movement of political parties is beginning in Spain. The Madrid correspondent of the Standard says that several conferences have taken place at Biarritz and St. Jean de Luz and Marshal Serrano and Senor Sagasta and other leaders of what is called the Constitutional party. The subject 01 tlieir deliberations was the polic)' to be pursued at tlie approaching elections for the Cortes. The organs of the Constitutionalists have hitherto advocated the abstentation of their party from any share iu the electoral proceedings ; and this mischievous and revolutionary counsel is unfortunately too consonant with Spanish habits of thought. It is too true that the Government, like all Spanish Govern ments, will certainly secure a majority in the Cortes by well-understood and familiar methods ; but the situation will be bettered by wholly withdrawing the Constitutional opposition from public life, and lying in wait for the chances of a pronuncianiiento. Thi...
BREAK-UP OF TURKEY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879
BREAK-UP OF TURKEY. At the end of a very able article, translated from the 'iolos into the 'lime?, we ( I'all Mall Gazette) find the following paragraphs, which Stem to us to deserve serious attention. After a long review of the incidents of the situation, particularly as they affect Uie relations 01 Jingianu ana nussia, the writer says : — ' As matters are so, the entire policy of Russia towards Turkey will undergo a radical change. After the decisions of the Berlin Con gress, 110 one believes in the continued existence of an independent Mahom medan State 011 the shores of the Bosphoius. In point of fact, the Otto man Empire lias even now ceased to exist, being placed under the absolute control, not, indeed, of victors and enemies, but of friends and protectors. In consequence of the Anglo-Turkish Convention and the first division of Turkey completed at Berlin, all the provinces of the Turkish Empire me in the market and awaiting purchasers.

"NOT AT HOME." [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879
' NOT AT HOME.' Truth,' says the Spaniard, 'is green.' This mystic utterance is supported by a pun which iu our own language can be poorly represented, if we may borrow an epithet from the ' Vulgar Errors ' of Sir Thomas Browne, by Verity is virent. When the Spaniard makes use of it, he does not, as might be supposed, intend to convey the idea of the vigour of truth, nor of its sickness, nor indeed of its novelty ; he simply desires to say that it is indigestible, — that you must not swallow much of it. That it is rather the seasoning of meat than meat itself. That, however one may grow fat on a feast of lias, no man in this world can live upon truth alone. This proverb, the aphoristic result of the collected wisdom of years of experience, expresses a sad fact iu English as well as iu Castilian society, a fact to be re gretted as deeply in the one nation as in the other. Iu our own tongue the conviction that the truth is not always to be spoken, however widely it is op posed to the ...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. FIE.E. At about 2 o'clock this morning a bright glare was seen iu tbe direction of Gurwood street, and it speedily became known that Poplar Cottage, at the corner of Traill and Gurwood-street, was on lire.
