Can it be that ' The Vagaboud ' courts the easy security of privilege after the action against 'The King of tlie Hats?' The evidence he then gave might lead to the supposition that protection from the 'pro- fessional prize-fighter ' and the brother, ' the bounty booker, who was worse than a prize-fighter,' is not altogether unnecessary. One can hardly imagine that Mr. Thomas, without some strong incentive, would join the ranks of the Assembly, about tlie mem bers of which he wrote in hardly compli mentary terms a few months ago. If memory serve, it was ' The Vagabond ' who wrote of the Kew . South Wales Assembly that it was ' a little better than that of Victoria.' Admitted, that such faint praise was hardly damnation from such a critic....

No title [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879

A- lexgtjiv circular upon the land question Las recently been freely dis tril uited throughout the colony, the writur subscribing himself ' A Haiti working Man.' Practically, the cir cular was an essay upon the objection uijie- ii;iiui.u «jl cue re^iiA^iici* cr.utw 01 the Laud Act, and in all candour, it must he confessed, not a very brilliant essay. In the first place, if it were absolutely necessary that the writer should seek the pleasant shade of anonymity, why should he not have selected the quiet oblivion of 'X' or 'Z'? In his circular he alludes to 'his class,' and surely the hard working ineu of the colony are repre sented in all degrees of society outside the especial profession of loafer. Had he adopted the pseudonym of ' A Hard working-man,' one might have reasonably speculated upon the prob ability of his being an adamantine anti Chinese agitator. But as his nom dc plume stands, he may be anything ; a I tyrannic squatter, for instance, who | clothing himself in one of hi...

ACCURATE EXPRESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879

ACCURATE EXPRESSION. With such abundant opportunities for j a thorough education for all, aud such extended schemes of a higher culture for many, as are offered and eagerly embraced at the present time, we have ' a right to expect a marked improve- I so highly favoured, but in the manner of expression. Someone has said, 'We should know an educated person by a sort of fragrance of cultivation,' and certainly in nis conversation, if any where, should we be able to detect that fragrance. What is the real state of the case, however? Are our young people, as a whole, better talkers than their parents ? Do they express their meaning with greater nicety 1 Do they convey their thoughts in more appro priate language ? We fear not. What ever the defects and superficiality of the education of fifty years ago, there was more attention paid to accuracy of expression than there is now. In the young ladies' boarding-school of the past generation slang was not tolerated, powerful expletives were fr...

MR. DE SALIS'S BONUS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879

Mr. De Salis's Bonus. Mr. De Salis is scarcely more fortu nate iu his proposition to aid the meat growers. That stock is ruling at very low prices in. the metropolitan markets is true and that the prospect of any improvement is very unfavourable is pnnallv ti-ufi. but that his nronosed ~T ? ^ ? , - ? - A ? -, remedy would meet the case is ex tremely problematical. It is well known that immense sums of raone}' have been expended in endeavouring to prepare meat in Australia for the English market aud that no fortunes have been realised in that form of enterprise as yet. The late Mr. Mort devoted a great sum of money to ex periments in that way, with what result we all know. It is also indisputable that up to the present the English people have not taken to our Australian meat in anything like a general way, and this notwithstanding the powerful and continued efforts that have been made to introduce it, us a competitor with the home-grown production. The Duke of Edinburgh gave it his b...

PARLIAMENTARY PRIVILEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879

Parliamentaey Privilege. As previously stated, we have no doubt whatever that Parliament will receive the support of the public in endeavouring to endow itself with sufficient powers to properly control its own members ; some of whom have snown tuemseives exceemugiy unruiy, and to greatly require bringing under subjection. But what has the public done that special legislation of this kind should be directed against it ? What, especially has the Press done that an attempt should be made by Parliament to gag it ! Sir John Robertson said he had always been against legislation of this sort, but after twenty years of for bearance, the annoyance had become so great that it must be dealt with. What annoyance does the hon. gentleman refer to ! Is it not in reality the annoyance caused to Parliament by its own unruly members } Because a few members of Parliament have sadly mis behaved aud disgraced themselves, and because, as a consequence, it has become necessary for Parliament to become en...

GOVERNMENT FINANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879

Government Finances. The New South Wales Government is not the only one which has to obtain advances from the banks to keep the ball moving. Mr. Berry's Treasurer has. borrowed nearly a quarter of a Ulllliuil. ill clliuiuij'abum Ul tnu luaii w uc floated by ' fJie Embassy.' We are not told where the advance is made, but in all probability it will be for the same purpose for which our Government has borrowed half-a-million, namely, to pay the interest of debt and other charges due in London. Tlie finances of tlie whole of Australia are so closely united in one system that we are most in timately concerned in the success of the Victorian loan. It will affect the price sx( nm- fnn/lc! m\A if. will iilcn oflTnnf. t.llf* money market in all the colonies.
