OUR NEW PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 22 April 1882

OUR NEW PRESS. From the Boston Daily Globe of January 1, 1981, we extract the following interesting items : — The latest new press of The Globe, with a capacity for printing 300,000 an hour, is a marvel of inventive genius and mechanical ingenuity. It is hard to describe it As an old .Boston journalist remarked about 2000 times concerning the scenery in different parts of Europe^ it must be seen to be ap preciated, It is a long machine, extending from Dock Square to that portion of our press-room east of Washington or Summer streets. In order to give it free play we were forced to take out the street floor and move our Summer-street delivery-room to that part of our building which is on Essex street. If the reader will begin with us at Dock square we will give him the modus operandi as near as we can. Here in large storerooms are vast quantities of rags and wood pulp. Here, also, is a large receiver or entrance to the huge iron monster. Ten minutes before an edition is -wanted, all ...

MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. THE MURDER OF EIGHT MONKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 22 April 1882

MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. THE MURDER OF EIGHT MONKS. The Monastery of Branz Selo has recently been the scene of a truly appalling tragedy. Inhabited by a small community of eight monks, it proved an easy prey to a strong band of robbers, who having made them selves masters of the building, were nliinrier — ? .____ _OI ? XT — ing its treasures at their ease, when a party of Russian soldiers, the officers in command of which had received an anonymous letter disclosing the brigands' plan of attack, made their appearance at the Monastery gates, and demanded entrance. To this summons the robbers replied by a brisk discharge of i musketry, which they kept up for more than an hour — presumably until the am munition was exhausted — when, the fire slackening, the soldiers made a determined assault upon the place, and broke in the church door by sheer force. Upon entering the sacred building they found the Monks lying on the altar steps, bound hand and foot, but no trace of the robbers. The Monks,...

OUT PROSPECTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 22 April 1882

OUT PROSPECTING. (From ' Parramatta Times.') Presently the pleasant smell of wood smoke — especially pleasautin a country where cedar and resinous pine are commonly burnt — began to be evident to the senses ; and soon after, the bush ceased altogether and the travellers emerged on to a clear space stand and in the midst of a row of Indian huts, -each surrounded by a well-tilled garden patch. Beyond these, along the bank, at a quarter of a mile's distance, a collection of gaily-coloured flags together with sundry other ai tides, including rudely-soulptured wooden figures o( men and animals, marked the tribe's burial ground. Conspicuous among the huts stood a Bmall woeden church crowned with a tiny belfrey, silent now onci) more; and within the sacred edifice itself were evidenMy gathered the inhabitants of the village ; for while the lodges seemed every one deserted, from the church came forth a sound of voices chanting — and not so badly either — the Litanf to the Virgin, rendered, ...

If tiie business ]-eople of Sleepy Hollow would wake u|- and put their heads together they might start something of the kind without any great amount of htbour or expense. Such an undertaking would also furnibh an amount of employment for many about the place. Now that money in cheap I do not tliink this (scheme would be a great expense, or if it could not be got off in Cdreoar perhaps some of the Syduey merchants would be inclined to tike an interest in the venture.

If, moreover, they knew of the extreme care that is taken in the case of all journals of any position to verify every announcement ' before it is given to the world— knew, too, how successfully on the whole the Joqu&cious tactics of private malevolence are defeated by cautious editors — they might be visited ' by oecasional gleams of gratituda There is something very ludicrous in the conven tional form taken by the contradictions and disclaimers which journals ...
