Up in the Clouds. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 17 January 1880
Up in the Clouds. tin. II. L'ESTEANQEgives to the Auitralatian the following description of bis balloon ascent from the National Agricultural Society's grounds: To describe what took place on the ground before the ascent on the sixth inst. would be a mere repetition of that which has already appeared in the newspapers; I will therefore commence from the cutting of the rope which held the balloon a captive. Immediately upon the rope being severed, the bnlloon rose rapidly until it readied an elevation of about 2000ft.; it then drifted in a north-westerly direction, crossing tho Saudridge-road. I lowered the grapnel, which had the effect of steadying my aerial ship. I then took a view of what was passing below. On looking from the car I pcrceivcd numberless vehicles of various dcscr>ptions, also the Hobson's Bay Bailway station with the trains in motion. The sight was remarkably beautiful, every object seeming as though it were a mere toy. On crossing the ltiver Yarra I could disti...
The Western Champion. Vita sine literis more est. BLACKALL, SATURDAY, JAN. 17. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 17 January 1880
Vita tine Merit mart at. BLACKAIX, SATURDAY, JAN. 17. THBBK has been no more welcome news received for a long time than the almost assured success of the Strathlcvcn ex periment. Our telegrams iuforin us that the steamer arrived at Suez after accomplishing the passage of the Red Sea 'with her shipment of meat iu good condition, and the worst portion of the voyage over we may expect to hear of the complete success of the experiment in a very short time. So many attempts Lave been made to convey meat to Eng land, and failure has been so olku the result, that shippers bccamc seriously discouraged, and unwilling to embark in any new ventures. The canned meats vrere not popular in England, especially among the middle classes, who have an old-iashioncd partiality in fevor of joints for their dinner tables; and it is donbtful whether meat preserved in cans would ever be sufficient to keep pace with the supply, and at the same time prove remunerative to the principal parties interested.

SUMMARY OF EVENTS. The members o£ the Victorinn Legislative Couticil, take cxccption to "the daily insults which arc hca|>ed upon them by the Govern ment find the Assembly" asserting that there is something like a conspiracy in existence to destroy their usefulness.

The crop of wheat is equal to only one-third of that uf 1876. Tlic phenomenon of subterranean waters having n regular ebb and How has been ob served in coal miners in Germany. The scion tlilc academies of Vienna and Berliu are studying it, and look for valuable additions to our knowledge of the earth's iutcrior.

A Disappointed Juror. (San Francisco Weekly Post.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 17 January 1880
I A Disappointed Juror. (Satl Fwncisco Weekly Pott*) It wag a flushed and somewhat excited citir.cn who presented himself before 011c of those judges of this city who were carefully voted out lost Wednesday, and remnrked : "If it Please your Honor, I have been drawn as a juror for the coming term of your Court, and I have come to be cxcused. It is impossible for me to sit," " Indeed," paid the judge with some of tlmt elephantine playfulness peculiar to tlic Kan Francisco bench. " Haven't a boil, have you," " No, sir, I haven't," replied the gentle man, getting still warmer; " But I haven't the time. I am worn out with business nud want to go off into the country and fish," " Fish, sir ? Do you mean to sny that you would prefer to sit four hours at a stretch on a slippery log, getting your nose peeled by tlic sun, rather than uphold law and order by the exercise of a freeman's dearest pre rogative ?" " Yes, I would." " You sadden me, sir. Besides, the fish ain't biting worth a cent j...
Cuttings from the Papers. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 17 January 1880
Cuttings Cram the Papers. . A SHOPKEEPER employed a Chinese to paint a sign in Chinese characters for a shop at the gold-diggings. When the sign was put up, the shopkeeper waited patiently for the exported influx cf the relations ofthesun and moon, To his surprise, however, although many approached the placard and rend it, all without cxpection passed by with broad grins on their faces. Suspecting that all was not right, he took down the mysterious sign, and availed himself of the first opportunity of trying to obtain a translation. This he found aifllculty in getting, every Chinaman to whom he showed the board refusing to satisfy him, and merely answering with a grin. At length, by the offer of a bribe, he arrived at the 6ccret The enticing adver tisement, on being rendered into English, was, as nearly as possible, as follows:-" Don't buy anything here; storekeeper a rogue." The United States show a total 81,811 miles of railway out of 187,017 for the entire globe. More than two fi...
