The New King Of Spain. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 9 January 1875

The Mew King of Spain. After years of civil war and political agitation, die Spanish auduzrities appear to have fallen back upon monarchical institutions and a restoration of die old mutnnp Jamily. ' On the 30th Septem ber; 1868, Queen Isabella, was driven fan her throne, and compelled to seek an asylum in France. After great fermentation, and after the question as to the succession bad caused die late Franco-German war, King Ajudeus was ^aM'*1 tu die fnrntVj and accepted the Crown. Bat the elements of disorder could not be eradicated, years, the Ktng resolved to give up die unequal contest. This was die occasion of fesh troubles, and a fratricidal cjyS war followed, mwhich die Orrlist faction gained for themselves unhappy notoriety. At length die atrocities became so out rageous that, we presume, it has been found expedient to tevert to legitimacy by calling the son of die late Queen Isabella to the throne. The movement may seem a. step backward, but a. Repub lic bad proved impossi...

Suddenly I heard a cry, and then I saw a man half naked qtwi^'ng deep in the black stream; above his head was a tree laden with portfolios surmounted with masa and safls.

Flighty Costumes. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 9 January 1875

Flighty Costumes. *L A teebibee fashion has been introduced this autumn in Paris to swell bills, and excite an honourable emulation in ex-. travagance. Some one has discovered Hat, faimming a dress with birds' feathers bas an exceedingly charming appearance, and that envy is excited according to the rarity of the fowl that is plucked. The lady who has introduced this novelty made her first appearance in a costume which evidently left nothing to be desired; though we are unable to understand the nriUioery jar con by which it is described. He tonic was trimmed with the feathers of the jay, bnt only the blue ones that form part of the wing. As the jay is not a very common bird — for he is a deadly enemy to gamekeepers, and even the Legislature has put a price upon his head— those feathers must have cost a pretty sum. But what will old ladies and children exclaim when they hear Out another mervaUaue, not to be outdone, has ordered a black silk dress to be frinnimfl with canary feathers?...

Disastrous Fire at Windsor, New Sooth Wales. AEOCTaqaartertoSo'docton 23rd Decem ber a most disastrous fire broke out at Wind sor. The flames being fanned by a furious westerly wind, spread rapidly from house to house, until by half -past 3 o'clock fully thirty bundings were destroyed. The day was as disagreeable as can possibly be imagined. AH tiie morning clouds of dusty hot ah- were blown with almost hnrricaiie force across the town, and a. worse day for a fire could scarcely have occurred, for the roo& and woodwork of tiie houses were in the most inflammable con dition. However the fire was caused, it was first seen about a quarter to 2 o'clock on Mr. Oosper's premises, and there being a quantity of combustible material about, a large sheet of name spread witii great rapidity in an easterly direction. In a very short time it reached a row of two-story brick houses in Macquarie-street, known as Haredoi's, and occupied by Mr. J. Alderson. These were speedily gutted, and ti...
