" Unfortunate, old Fergie I Lord Brassey's first mate died when the Royal Yacht Club was cutting its pro fessional teeth.

A COIN SYMPOSIUM. [All Rights Reserved.] [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 22 November 1895
A COIN SYMPOSIUM. -4--~- (BY CHARLES JUNOR.) [All Rights Reserved.] - - I was a miser. Now, I never feel quite at ease while 1 retain a coin in my pockets. I am not a spendthrift, but I feel compelled to he making frequent investments, and to let my money circulate. " Money talks," I used to say when my acquaintances spoke dispar agingly of my parsimonious practices and grinding exactions, and they overlooked the fact that I felt more companionship and joy in handling a bag of sovereigns than ever they could derive from the tenderest caresses of their most idolised mistresses. line was permanent pleasure; their's but the moon shine of the moment. That death would eventually separate me from my treasures I daily anticipated, but as The Future was a mysterious uncertainty to all, and it was possible that at any time science might evolve an Elixir-of-Life, which the rich alone would have the means of purchasing; or a discovery arrive that wealth could be credited to man's account beyon...

THE WEEK'S TRAGEDIES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 22 November 1895
TELL WEEK'S TIRAGEDIES. THE sensation-loving portion of the read ing community cannot complain of a lack of horrors in the daily Press this week-suicides and murders combined following one another in quick succes sion. The Tait, Dacre, and Short cases differ in their details, but they are all the outcome of people breaking down mo rally and mentally tuder trouble of some form or other. A good many of the reasons given by people for taking away their lives are not very intelligible; and surely any being of average intelligence must come, by the slightest process" of reasoning, to see that "Man is born to trouble as the sparks fly upwards," and that he must expect the sweets of existence flavoured with a considerable mixture of the bit ters. Nothing is gained by maudlin lamentations of these unfortunates of society, who rush away from the discip linary trials of human existence-they are not saints, and certainly not heroes -and their tragical vagaries should only act as a warning to o...
THE PRESENT GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 22 November 1895
'THE PIEiSENT GOVERNMENT: DURING last week the Age announced that Messrs. SIlELS'dnd MCCOLL had Genytinyth"F es siae agaist the Governi ment, in the shape of a want of confi dence motion up their sleeve, which they intended to spring on Mr. Tunall a and hiosMinistry, and politically blow them off the Treasury benches. The truth of tbe'canard has been: denied by those who were supposed to be the conspirators, anm-it--imay-l3e atn-?their- repudiations are true, or, perhaps they, 'or either of them, are anxious to escape the stigma of being connected with a pro posed coup which only had to be men tioned to crumble away; but in any case one naturally remembers the familiar adage, "Where there is smoke there is fire", and a few, tioughts on'a possible attemipt to unsent the present Ministry may not be innpliropriatee in these columns. WeFhink that the colony ais a whole is satisfied with the ,TuntER re gimee and are disposed to allow them a continuance of power; for some time to come. Th...

NORTH MELBOURNE C.Y.M. SOCIETY. Tae above society held its ordinary weekly meeting in the school-room, Vic toria-street, on Monday evening, 18th November. The Vice-President, Bro. J. Brady, occupied the chair. The usual routine business having been gone through, the consideration of the new bye-laws was proceeded with and con firmed. The syllabus business of the evening being "Reading of the Maga zine," Bro. Heagney, in the unavoidable absence of Bro. Clark, performed the duties of Editor in a clear and distinct manner. There were but two papers, exclusive of the editorial, which dealt with the Governor's reception, the death and funeral of the late Sir James Pat terson, and the unity of our society; " The Progress of the Nineteenth Cen tuary," by Juvenis, an article which dealt lucidly with the rapid strides of science and mechanism, and the pro gress of literature during the period under review ; and " Pic-sic Pickings," by Spectator, a satirical production, which caused considera...

This match was continued on the North Melbourne'Recrention Reserve on Saturday last. The weather being beautiful and the wiclket being good, it was generally antici pated that Richmond (who had one wicket down for 20) would have no difficulty in ton ping the score (226) set them by North Mel bourne. However, thanks to the splendid fielding of the home. team, anid the good bowling of Jack Carlton, ably assisted by E. Bean and Maplestone, the Richmondites were disposed of for 170, leaving them i6 be hind on the first innings. This practically means a win for horth Melbourne, as they have 67 on the bsard, and no wickets down in the second innings, which, with 56 to the good in the first innings, really means 123 on the score-sheet and ten wickets to fall. Haddrick and Wade resumed their places at t...

Great interest was manifested in the meeting of these t?amn, an both wore-uscaly matched, each winning their last match by an innings. The feature of this match was the even scoring in the.first innings, but was spoilt by the splendid bowling of Atkins (in the second innings) in the failing light of Satur day, the batsmen not being able to do anything with him; but as soon as they objected, the umpires considered it time to adjourn.

"PERMISKUS PARS." [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 22 November 1895
" IERMISK UrS PARS." --'rh -?..l?? t -r'- ?l? + (Br Iosu?.) Numbers of forged notes closely re sembling the genuine ones of the Colonial Bank are in circulation; but-withithe;ex- ception?of an occasio?al siil"o pariagralth in the corner of the daily papers no warning is giren thle piiblicd. -THoii seems a deplorable thing that in cases of this sort semi-public institutioiks, inuch as banks; do not publish large notices:in the Pres and elsewhere to warn.otir citizens.

ANGLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 22 November 1895
ANGLING NOTES. Is future issues we intend givini.our readers some information in connection with the sport of the rod and line-and it is well known that -orth- M?Melbourne - can boast of some of the most expert anglers around the metropolis-but at present piscatorial matters are decidedly dull, and almost at a standstill. The filthy state of the Saltwater river, which has been described in the "dailies," is enough to kill both fish and fishernian, and as it is nothing more than a serer of blood and liquid offal, it is hopeless to expect sport in its waters (?) However, with the Christmas season coming on some expeditions to the river and creeks at reasonable distance may be looked for, and we shall be happy to receive any information of their results. Last week Messrs. P. B. McMaster and J. Miskin journeyed to the Werribee river for a day's bream fishing. Mr. McMaster succeeded in catching a good basket, weighing between 7 and 81bs. Two of the fish weighed 2j lb. and 2 lb, respectiv...

THE DROUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 22 November 1895
THE DROUGHT. ALi.osT the first want that man pales before is the want of water. Just at this moment riural Australia is fighting the triple-armed giant of thirst, with (in some cases) deadly results. From Carpentaria to the Bight, the skies are brass, and the universal knee is bowed in supplication for.rain, to an apparently heedless Providence. The situation is perilous, and its effects will be speedily reflected in every household on the continent. The farmer -at present in the merciless grip of that pawnbroker of land, the skinflint mort gagee-will be involved in financial disoider, from .which it will take him years to recover. The squatter-forced by competitive conditions in the markets of the world to cut: the shearers wages -sees his beasts dying in countless thousands, upon a grassless waste. The laborer-already well-nigh o'erwhelmed by low wages and intermittent employ ment-finds bread dearer, and other eatables equally scarce. It is no wonder that the Drought is a matter o...
THE MINIMUM WAGE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 22 November 1895
THE MINIMUM WAGE.—AS will be &nbsp; sren by our Council report clbeohere that body have decided to adopt the minimum wage, and Cr. Wadick's pet scheme-and a very sensible one-that the contractors' workmen shall be paid by the Town Clerk, inserted as one of the conditions of the specifications. It is not necessary to re-produce the con ditions here, as they appear in another column, but they are stringent and ex plicit enough, and should be ample pro tection to the men. It is set out that there maet not be " any deductionahlt soever" from the standard daily wage for the day of eight hours. The North Melbourne Council are to be congratu lated. on their action; and we hope the coniditions will be strictly adhered to and rigidly enforced. SHORT-WEIGHT BREAD.—Cr. J. Petrie said at the Council this week that a person came into his place of-busines's' in Abbotsford-street to have a loaf weighed. This gentleman obliged, and: found that the loaf (a 21b. one) :was-4' ounces short. As ...
