THE POPE AND THE JESUITS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879
The Pope and the Jesuits. London, January 20.'— Tlie Standard's correspondent at Rouie says : — ' Tlie Jesuits have. sent the Pope a kind of ultimatum pointing out the evils result ing from their exclusion from tlie government of the Church. The Pope continues lirm and many of his friends fear the consequences. An unfounded report that the Pope had been poisoned, which originated in Paris, has awakened painful apprehensions.'
SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. POLITICAL NOTORIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879
SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. Pomticax, Notoriety. Mr. David Buchanan, like the pro verbial Irishman, is getting 'blue mouldy for want of beafing.' His soul thirsts for the excitement of war fa re, not of blows- but words. He droops and pines when thrown out of the legislative arena, and cannot con tent himself with being merely a speculator of contests, in which he longs to be a principal. When de feated for the Western Gold Fields, he assured both friends and foes, that his elimination from Parliamentary life, was an unmixed blessing to himself and his family, for released from the cares of State, he was now enabled to devote the full measure of his energy and genius to the practice of his profession. We have heard other disappointed politicians pour forth similar utterances, and proclaim in calm and affecting platitudes, the virtuous resignation which porvades their souls. Sir Henry Parkes, when thrown out for East Sydney, said the door of his political life was closed for over, but he di...
PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879
Ptotectiox. London, January 20. — Right lion. Mr. Forster, speaking at a soiree at the Bradford Chamber of Commerce, said he did not deny that the strength of protection in the United States was pav no threat of imposing counter-duties would have any effect. The United States would only thereby be provoked to make issue to see which side was the stronger. Besides such a policy would be impracticable, because to bring a serious pressure on the United States it would be necessary to tax such vital necessities as wheat and cotton.
BUXTON AND THE ANTISLAVERY CAUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879
BUXTON AND THE ANTI SLAVERY CAUSE. When returning health enabled him to resume his labours, Buxton found that every year brought fresh adherents to the cause ; at the outset he had himself favoured gradual abolition as the only open course, bnt as events shaped them selves he found that lopping at the l _. _1 ? ?

He caused publications to be spread broadcast over the land, enthu siasm grew contagious, public meetings were held, and in 1830, after a meeting held in Edinburgh, a petition for imme diate emancipation was signed by 22,000 persons. A fact came to his knowledge iu 1831 which was made the turning point of the whole question ; when O'Connell, who was an energetic sup porter of the Anti-Slavery cause, heard it, he came across the House, and said, 'Buxton, I see land.'

Tin: Afghan Wah. London, December 31. — The Viceroy of India reports that Syad Malioncd, Chief of Kunai- Valley, announces his intention of coming in. The Times, on the military situation, says : — This may be heralded as the forerunner of intelligence already hinted that the districts of Chitral, Swat, and jiuuar win ne incorporated into me Indian Empire. IV the occupation of this tract, an easy and direct road will be opened from the Punjuab to York and Kiishgar. presenting far fewer diffi culties than that now followed by the Central Asian Trading Association, which traverses the high mountain ranges of Cashmere and Ladak, crosses the terrible Karakora Pass at an alti tude of nearly 'JOO-I feet, and then crossing another range over 1(5,000 feet in height, descends to York, 4000 feet above the sea level.

ZOROASTER AND CONFUCIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879
ZOROASTER AND CONFUCIUS. Zoroaster, or Zeratusht, iu, the eoliee- 1 tion of writings ascribed to him, aud I known as the Zend-avesta, the sacred I books of the modern Parsees, seems to 1 have maintained, with much obscurity 1 and inconsistency the doctrine of a 1 Supreme Intelligence, the cause, if -not 1 the creator of all other beings. Hero 1 ntns. t.lip. Greek historian, wlm wmte ? in the following eentury, informs us I that, of his own knowledge, the Per- I sians of his time used neither temples, 1 nor altars, nor images in their worship, I which was originally addressed only to I the powers of Nature, but was subse- I quently debased by the recognition of j the deities of neighbouring nations. It I is the opinion of very learned Oriental- I ists that the ancient religion of Persia, 1 as discoverable from the records of the I Zend-avesta, resembled that of the I earlier Vedas, and really consisted iu ? I the worship of one God, adored in His 1 manifestation of Himself in the ele...
DESTRUCTIVE FIRE IN NEW YORK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879
Destbuctive Fire in New York. New York, January 17.— A fire broke out this evening at No. 62 ?Worth-street, and spread rapidly. The flames were first seen on the third floor, and before the liremen could get fairly to work, spread to No. 58 Worth street, and in a short time the buildings right through to Thomas-street were in a blaze. There was some difficulty at first in getting water, but in a short time a large number of streams were poured oil the flames from the Thomas street side. Second and third alarms were sent out, and ten anginas were soon at work in Worth-street and five on Thomas-street. The fire is said to have originated on the third floor of No. 62 Worth-street, occupied by Walkingshaw and Wright, dealers in woollen goods ; Fortsman and Co., woollens and woollen goods, and Meyer and Co., men's clothing. While Fire Cammissioner Bonner and a number of firemen were on the floor where the fire originated, the floor began to give way, and they were compelled to beat a has...
EXTENSION OF THE LINE TO HAY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879
EXTENSION OF THE LINE TO H A Y. Ix the Assembly, on Tuesday, Mr. IBnrhour moved, — (1). That, in the opinion of this House, in extending the , southern line of railway towards Hay i it will best conserve public interests to ! construct the line to the south of the- ; Murruuibidgee River, instead of on the : noi'thei'ii side. (2.) That Ijv taking the ! soutliem side the traffic on the northern side will be as certainly secured to this colony, whilst the rich agricultural lands of Urana and Yanko will br- traversed, a much larger population will be compassed, and the trade wliich now goes to Melbourne will be intercepted and taken to Hay, Wagga Wagga, and Sydney. He urged that the railway could be more easily constructed on tlie southern side of the river than on tlie northern. He denied that such a line would be playing into the hands of the Victorians, and there would be, he said, a gap of fifty or sixty miles between it and the Victorian lines. He proposed that the line should go a...

EUROPEAN AND AMERICAN NEWS VIA SAN FRANCISCO. FRENCH POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879
EUROPEAN AND AMERICAN NEWS VIA SAX FRANCISCO. Fuexch Politics. Veksailles, January l(i. — In the Chamber of Deputies, this afternoon. De Marcere, Minister of the Interior, read the ministerial declaration. Jt says the Senatorial elections are a ' striking indication of the adhesion of the peuple to the Republican policy. It alludes favourably to the work- nf flip ' Berlin Congress, and hopefully to the execution and results of the Treaty of Berlin. It refers to pardons of Com munists already granted, and promises a further extension of clemency. The declaration announced that the Govern- ! inent would vigilantly supervise the : observance of the law regulating the relations between civil and religious society, be inexorable towards officials attacking the Republic, and would not use the freedom of action gained by denouncing treaties of com merce to depart from the principles which Ii.-im; receiirly so much developed the c Hiiinerce of the country.

DR. SLADE AND THE SPIRITS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879
DR. SLADE AND THE SPIRITS. Bv Samuel T. Kxagcs, M.D., or Newcastle. It was with much pleasure that I received a brief communication from my friend Mr. F., inviting me to Sydney expressly on purpose to visit Dr. Siade. with the view of persoiisilly investigating the so-called spiritual manifestations produced under his ! influence. My friend Mr. F. prides (himself upon his liberality of opinion, ; and in several arguments with me upon i the subject, he has maintained that no 'judgment should lie formed upon the : subject of Spiritualism without patient, ; diligent, and exhaustive inquiiy. He ! has tor several years been pwsuins; the : matter with that spirit, bur up to the i present has come to no very decided j opinion beyond the conclusion that i there is some very mysterious influence '. at work, which to him is inexplicable. ! My reputation as an amateur conjuror. ! and perhaps the very flattering opinion | that he had formed of my perceptive i faculties, combined with a latent m...
TIVOLI. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879
TIVOLI. Monte Cavo itself, the highest cone of the group, commands from its summit — about as high as Helvellyn — a view of marvellous beauty over Rome and all the plain between the Apennines and the sea. Here stood the famous temple, the sanctuary of the Latin League, and a great high place through all the days of Rome. Its ruins were in tolerable preservation till about a century since, when the last of the Stuarts, Cardinal York, added to the list of the misdeeds of that unlucky family, and destroyed them to make way for a convent of monks. Perched among olive-sroves on the last slones of the Apennines, some eighteen miles north-east of Rome, is another spot no less interesting than beautifnl — Tivoli, the ancient Tibur, where the 'headlong' Anio leaps forth from the hills, water ing the orchards where Horace loved to linger. It was a fashionable resort of the Roman aristocracy, and numerous traces of villas are in be seen, on which the fancy of the ciceroni h^s freely bestowed a...
QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879
Queensland. In order to expedite the raising of capital for a Compressed Meat Company, it is proposed that a limited number of squatters guarantee each so much in bis own district, collecting the amount afterwards from those interested. The Commissioner of Police received a telegram on Tuesday, from Cooktown, stating that a man named Peter Doohui, | a labourer, was found murdered on the j night of' the 15th. Strong suspicion is attached to a woman named Arnold, and a man named Maloney. The woman was arrested, and there were marks of | blood upon her. The man was also I caught. The accused were brought up I at the Court and remanded for eight j days. j The native Iroopers have returned i from patrolling the north side of the \ Eudeavoar River, having recovered ail i the property lost by Hartley and Sykes during the late attack by blacks.

AFGHAN COOKERY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879
AFGHAN COOKERY. Cookery attains the dignity of a fine art in Cabul, and confectionery is made in large quantities. It is the custom to send a, 'zujiifat,' or ready-cooked dinner, which. comprises an enormous jiuiuucr tu uisubk, to aistuiguisnea strangers. The piece de resistance is invariably a 'pulao' — that is to say, a whole sheep stuffed with pistachio nuts, almonds, raisins, dried apricots, and preserved plums, aud concealed uuder a 'mountain of boiled rice mixed with carraway, cardamuin, and pomegranate seeds. It is succeeded by a multipli citp of sweet and sour preserves, can dies, sherbets, and Bevei-al kinds of bread. The crucial native test for Afghan cookery is the quantity and quality of the melted butter or fat of which it is the vehicle. The more ran cid the grease the better it is liked, particularly by the peasantry aud the nomadic races, three or four of whom will consume the tail of a dnmba sheep, weighing eighteen pounds, and consist ing of pure fat, at a single m...

South Australia. The Agent-General informs the Go vernment that the jute manufacturers in Melbourne have sent a communica tion to Scotland, published in the Dun dee papers, stating that they could give employment to a large numoer or spinners, and advising them to come to Victoria by way of Adelaide or Sydney as free immigrants. The Agent-General has written to the Dundee papers in explanation. The report of the Carrying Company shows that since the abolition of the Hired Truck system they had been able to compete satisfactorily on the Port Road against the railway.

Avoid excitement, dissipation and late hours. If you are not naturally nervous they vill be apt to make you so, unless you have a constitution of iron. If you are nervous, there is still greater reason to shun them. The best remedy for weakness of the nerves, as well as for its almost invariable con comitant — a deficiency of constitutional vigor — is Udolpho Wolfe's Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps which multiplies the physical energies, promotes asshnila ation of the food, and tranquilizes the brain. — Adv.

TRADESPEOPLE & SERVANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879
TRADESPEOPLE & SERVANTS. The uuinber of visitors to a kitchen of a house of the better class iu Londou is perfectly startling — butcher, baker, milkman, poulterer, grocer, greeugrocer, cheesemonger, fishmougcr — eight pulls at the bell for orders, and eight more wiiuu me wings are urougut Home ; sixteen times for the cook or kitchen maid to leave her work, which she gene rally does not unwillingly. No wonder that a good cook cannot be obtained nowadays without the help of a kitcheiunaid. It certainly takes two to attend the door and entertain the company, and many a good cup of tea and basin of soup does the butcher's or grocer's young man obtain without pay ing for it. Every article we consume requires a different tradesman to supply it. We see no way of escape from this intoler able nuisance except in the enlargement of the co-operative principle by trades men themselves. Our great linen drapers profess to supply nearly every thing in the way of dress for men and women. Th...
