Napoleon's Decline and Fall. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

Napoleon's Decline and Pall. In the January number of the Pall Mall Maga zine appears the first of what promises to be an interesting series of articles by Lord Wolseley upon the last four great campaigns of Napoleon. The series is to be called 'The Decline and Fall o£ Napoleon.' Lord Wolseley begins by noticing the sharp con trast which exists between Napoleon's campaigns which preceded that of 1812 and those which £ol- ? lowed from that date onwards. Up to tha year 1812, the time of Napoleon's great expedition against Eussia, every war that Napoleon had per sonally conducted liad in the long run proved victorious. From 1812 onwards, each war in suc cession, that of 1812, 1813, 1814, and 1815, ended in disaster for him. Lord Wolseley therefore begins by inquiring whether we are to attribute this to a personal change in Napoleon or to other circum stances which made the result inevitable. His conclusion appears to be that in a .degree the cause maBt be ' sought for both in the fact ...

A Trip to Denman Races. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

A Trip to Bemnaii Eaces. ( From a correspondent.) At the invitation of host Yeates, of the Family Hotel, Muswellbrook, your correspondent had a most enjoyable drive to Denman to witness the races on Friday last, the weather being most favourable. Leaving the Brook at 9,30, with a nice brisk breeze blowing, we passed Skellator, then Balmoral — which reminds me of all the assistance we have got from the Mercury by giving publicity to that roundabout way and climbing hills instead of the road going through Balmoral and thence straight on to Denman. However, the road is still the same and likely to be so, but in real good order. Since my last drive along this road there has been vast improvements. I see Mr. James White, o£ Edinglassie, has had erected a most magnificent stone building ; he has also gone in for agricultural pursuits, as there can be seen some splendid crop* of maize along tbe bank of the Hunter. We next came to the Piereafield Estate, where Mr. Withycombe has had erected...

The Moon of Mountains Jewel. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

The Moon of Mountains Jewel. A famous diamond, with a history of blood and fraud, is the ' Shah,' which forms part of the regalia of the Czar. About 150 years it belonged to Nadir Shah, a military desperado, who, by hiB talents and wickedness, had become ruler of Persia. After subduing all his rivals there, he invaded the dominion of the grand Mogul and enriched himself with money and jewels to the amount of 500,000,000 dols. On his return to Persia he carried two gre(it diamonds, called the Sun of the Sea and the Moon of Mountains, and these he worked into his throne. Afcerwards a conspiracy was formed, and after a terrible struggle, on the 19th of June, 1747 Nadir Shah was murdered in his tent and his palace was pillaged. | At this time an Armenian named Shafras dwelt, with his two brothers, in Bassorah ; and one day an Afghan came to him with the Moon of the Moun tains and and a sapphire, called the Eye of Allah, together with a hundred other stoneB, and offered them for sale at ...

The Highland Brigade. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

The Highland Brigade. Mr. Kinglake, speaking of, Lord Clyde, says — ' Be fore the action had begun, and whilst his men were still in column, Campbell had spoken to his brigade a few words — words simple, and for the most part, workmanlike, yet touched with the fire of warlike sentiment. ' Now men, you are going into action. Remember this: whoever is wounded must lie where he falls till the bandsmen come to attend to him. If any soldier does such a thing, his name shall be stuck up in his parish church. Don't be in a hurry about liriog. Your olucers will tell you when it is time to open fire. Be steady. Keep silence. Fire low. Now, men,' — those who knew the old soldier can tell how his voice would falter the while his features were kindling — 'Now men, the army will wateli us ; make me proud of i .ie Highland Brigade!''

The Turanville Horse Sale. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

The Tnranville Horse Sale. Mr. Thomas Cook achieved a somewhat unexpected failure yesterday. Banks, floods, and all round smashes have played sad havoc amongst the ranks of tho speculators, and there are now more sellers than buyers.' Anyhow it was a joyous day all right, for the clerk of the weather was up nice and early and polished up the face of old Sol until it shone like that big round ball of brass which Captain M'ayne Eeid and Ouida chat about and which always reminds us with a shudder of our dear old friend uncle and tlie little pe cuniary * differences which exist between us. There was a nice, brisk breeze, too, but it didn't liven many of us up, for the crowd which secured their tickets at Church-street was small and circumspect. Certainly, there was the brisk Member for Maitland, and therij was Tom Cusb, thinking about All Eight; but those two are by no means big enough to make a crowd, and although the stalwart James Main and ourselves helped them a bit there was no cru...

In the heart of it A message I'll send, I'll send, —Or a part of it, Tor the heart of the rose is small, And cannot contain it all. She will pin the rose on her breast, And the heart of it Will whisper my love; has she guessed Already a part of it ? —Sweet row?, lie lightly above The pure heart uf my love.
