The [?]este[?]n [?]ham[?]ion. Vita sine litevis mors est. BLACKALL, SATURDAY, JAN. 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 3 January 1880
®lte tSBcstqn ((Iminpioit. Vila tine liUrit mm at. BLACKALL, 8ATUBDAY, JAN. 8. THAT two of the' bushrangers who were captured at Wantaliadgeiy should have been reprieved is Another instance of that mistaken and morbid sympathy with atrocious criminals for which the people of New South Wales are noto rious. The crime of which these two young highwaymen wen convicted is one which ought to be vieited with the severest punishment which it is in the power of the law to inflict. While bushrangers are permitted to escape the just penalty of their crime, and while their youth is put forward as an excuse for mercy, so long will the young men of the Colonies be tempted to follow in the footsteps of thoBe whom they regard as heroes and exemplars. It is no justification for these young highway men to say that they have been led into crime by the arch plotter ol t!jc scheme. They were old enough to know what they were doing, and what were the certain consequences of their crime. They conld not h...

SELECTED POETET. FLIES. At a Benson 1 ike flits, when tlic heat is go great. And one's constantly mopping the dew on one's pali', When our shirts to our Lacks Stick as tightly as wax, And our tempera arc touchy and as sharp as tin-tacks. 'J'hc curse of nil curse?, to foolish And wise, To rich Slid to poor, is-these blithering tlies, From the grey dawn of day to the coming of night, They ore trying your comfort or peepers to blight, Whether hungry, or thirsty, or sober, or " tight," Whether business is jlicky, or things go all right, # » ' hi the church, or the bar, Or wherever you are, You can never get rid of these nuiwicfs quite; If you can brush them away from your ncck or your hair.

Drinking Amongst British Laborers. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 3 January 1880
Drinking Amongst British Laborers' 1 DOUBT if in tlic 60,000 skilled mechanics of Birmingham to day a dozen can be found nilli a practical illustration of thrift eco nomy, or saving in their every-day life. II is regarded as "mean" or "stingy" on the part of a working man here to save money to hoard up for a "rainy day." His com panions would scout at bim and.lcad him nlife of torment by word teasing if lie were to abandon the tap room or the drinking-bar' and save up part of his comings. There seems to be a regular recruiting system here, mill doubtless in all English manufacturing towns, for the benefit of the public taverns. The working man with moral courage enough to avoid these natural vice traps.of England would soon find himself a victim of endless petty tyranny by his companions. They seem to nurse the consolation that "they all do It," and he who is a sober and saving man is a "sneak." The wife of the dissipated mechanic will insult the wife of t(he pru dent mechanic solel...
