ITEMS OF J&TEEEST. [Obiginal and Selected.] The largest mulberry tree in Victoria is situated on Emu Creek on the property of Mr. Gustavo Peiper, a well-known vigneron. The tree was planted by a Mr. Frideaux in the year 1853, and it is now therefore about 40 years of age. The dimensions of the tree, which have been accurately taken, are as follow : Height. 40ft. : width of branches, 38ft. ; circumference of branches, 114ft. ; diameter of stem, 3ft.; circumference of stem, 9ft. The yield of fruit from this tree averages about 11 cwt. each season, which has been sold two years in succession at £10 10s per annum. The owner of this extraordi nary tree does not now find it profitable to pick the fruit, however, and passers-by enjoy many a good feast from it. The tree is healthy and vigorous and still growing, By last mail a gentlemen in Victoria re. ceived an imposing parchment from no less a place than' 'The High Court of Justice, England.

He was a big brown fellow, who liked a journey better than sprinting, and who was as game as the proverbial bull-dog. He won many races at Maifcland, Newcastle, Tamworth, etc., when owned by Mr. James Jewell, and was a great favourite of mine, for he did me a good turn on several occasions. He was sold to a sporting medico some years back, for whom ...

Wesleyan Church, East Maitland. ANNIVERSARY MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 20 January 1894

Wesleyan Church, East Itaitland. , ANNIVERSARY MEETING. Yesterday evening the anniversary meeting in connection with the Wesleyan Church, East Mait land, was held in the church. First there was a tea provided and presided over by ladies of the congregation, a novel feature being that one table was provided each by spinsters and bachelors of the congregation. The tea was well attended, the number of children and young people being a notable aspect of the gathering. After tea a.publio meeting was held in the church. The Rev. J. A. Waddell presided, and had with him the Revs. E. King, of Wallsend, W. Hill, of West Maitland, and James Lamont, Presbyterian. There was an efficient choir under the conductorship of Mr. B. Sullivan, ?which rendered some very good music during tho evening. The proceedings opened with the choir singing1 the first anniversary hymn, ' Awake ! Awake !' The Rev. Mr. Lamont then led in prayer, after which the choir again favoured with 'Wake now the song of gladness...

NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 20 January 1894

NEWCASTLE. For the information of visitors to this city, we point out that the Commissioners have decided to charge only Id on the tramway from the beach to A. A. Co's wharf. This will be highly valued, and of great convenience to the public generally. A canary show in conection with the Newcastle and District Poultry Society, was opened yesterday in Buchanan's buildings. There is a large number of exhibits, and the show is well worth a visit. The Eisteddfod, which is announced for the 26th instant, promises to be a great success. A large number of entries has been made, especially in the choral competitions for juveniles. The preliminary examinations take place to-day in the Baptist Tabernacle from 2 to 5 p.m. A grant of .£450 has been made by the Govern ment for the improvement of the road from Lamb ton to Wallsend through Jesraond. This will give employment to s^ number of men who require some thing of the sort to keep body and soul together. We have been busily engaged gathering...

LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 20 January 1894

LOCAL NEWS. ' The Mayor op East Maitland on the Vic toeia Bbidge.— We were obliged to shorten the reports given yesterday of the Bridge meetings. But Mr. Chambers' remarks when acknowledging the vote of thanks for presiding were so sound and pertinent that we give them now. He said that the present superstructure had not been long erected when it was attacked by white ants, and nothing had been said to that objection to the -work. And were they going do auomn ™ bucu » thing being done again. It was first reported that tnese underpiers were solid, but a lot of them were not solid, and it would cost about £300 to put in fresh ones. Were they to allow this to go on without protest? If so they were not Worthy of being inhabitants of EaBtMaitland. It seemed to him that the Minister did not recognise the importance of this bridge. It was only a bridge over Wallis Creek. But that creek was as large a bar to them as the Hunter was to Morpeth, although it was only a very short span. As he ha...

SINGLETON. SINGLETON AND PATRICK'S PLAINS BENEVOLENT ' AS7LUM. The annual meeting of the subscribers of this charity was held on Friday evening, the President (Mr. George Loder) in the chair. In consequence of several other meetings being held at the same time, the attendance was very small. The Secretary (Mr. J. A. Key) read the annual report and balance-sheets, as follows : — Singleton and Patrick's Plains Benevolent Asylum The close of another year imposes on your Com mittee the duty of giving an account of ? the trans actions of this excellent charitable institution for the past year. The year 1893 has been a most eventful one, and this institution, together with many others of a like character throughout the colony, have suffered from the severe depression which has prevailed during the year, by means of a falling-off in sub scriptions and donations, and, on the other hand, an increased demand on it3 resources by the needy and indigent ; in consequence of which your Com mittee ...

What, is Curry? Curry is a vegetable ; rather, curry is vegetables. It is anise, coriander, cumib, mustard, poppy seeds, allspice, almond, assafoetida, ghee, cardamom seeds, chili berries, cinnamon, cloves, coeoanut milk, oil, curds, fenugreek seed, garlic, onion, ginger, lime, juice, vinegar1, mace, mangoes, nutmeg, popper, saffron, salt, tamarinds, turmeric, &c. These are nil pounded together, dried in an oven or in the sun. When botblerl it is the powder which comes to xis as Indian ourry.' Now is it not worth admiring the wit and skill that have brought together such a number of ingredients, and out of them have envolved an article eo entirely different from eacli, and in which there is not any elementary trace ? In India, curry is procured at firsthand. Different provinces vary the ingredients and the proportions. If brought together the' ladies of Madras and the ladies of Calcutta would probably coinparo recipes, each, of coars-j, with her owa preferences.

A COMPARATIVE PATHOLOGICAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 20 January 1894

A COMPARATIVE PATHOLOGICAL SOCIETY. Sib, — The desirableness of forming a society of medical men, veterinarians, sanitarians, and others, interested in the preservation of the health of human beings and animals generally, is beyond question. It is true that each of these scientific bodies have their, own societies where matters of scientific and professional interestare dealt with from their individual points of view, but none or these so far as I am aware, deal fully with the science of pathology in its widest1 meaning. That plants have their diseases as well as man and animals is now a fully recognised fact, and it is well known that the diseases of plants have an important influence en the production of animal diseases. These again, especially when affecting animals, which form a large proportion of our food supply, are detrimental to human health. SeriouB outbreaks of disease are continually oc curring amongst stock of the causea and nature of which little or nothing is known, a...

POLITICAL FADS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 20 January 1894

POLITICAL FADS. Sir, — If we may judge from the utterances of various members of Parliament during the last few days, many of those entrusted with the work of legislation are woefully ignorant of the precise Dature of the duties which they have undertaken to discharge. The pressing need of the colony is practical legislation. In this no question of politi cal principle iB involved. For instance, take the proposed Land Bill. It is not a question whether it should be introduced by one Ministry in pre ference to another, but whether it will assist in healing the existing feud between squatter and selector and aid in settling the people on the land. Unfortunately, every question is practically dis cussed on party lines, thus rendering useful legisla tion impossible, and encouraging the constant intro duction of political fads and crotchets o£ every kind. Some would place the whole burden of taxation on the land, others would have no taxation at all, several would give away the State lan...

WOMAN SUFFRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 20 January 1894

WOMAN SUFFRAGE. Sir, — The latest developments of the women suffrage achievement in New Zealand is the appoint ment of the woman mayor of some outlandish place in that woman's elysium and land of socialism, ultra demecracy, and imminent anarchy, to the position of justice of the peace. How any woman with an atom of womanly modesty or self-respect could accept such a position is to me a problem I must confess myself unable to elucidate. To have the assurance to preside over a body of men such as a Municipal Council is in itself unwomanly enough, and reflects dishonour on the so-called men who constitute it ; but to adjudicate on the bench in a rape caso, for instance, or one of the almost daily abominable cases brought before the police courts is simply disgusting. O temporal O mores! I blush for my country. How is it all to end ? Our men have become women and our women pseudo men. The sooner someone commences to write of the decline of the British Empire— the fall is imminent unless...

After their Hononrs - had considered the special cage, they upheld the conviction of the prisoners. But leave waa asked of them, and granted, to appeal against their decision to the Judicial Com mittee of the Privy Council. Their Lord Bhips advised the , Queen that the appeal . should be dismissed, and intimation to that effect having been communicated by cable message to the local authorities, sentence of -death was duly passed upon John Makin and . -carried into effect.
