INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. New South Wai.es. A DISASTROUS file occurred ou Mon day at Milltown, destroying Robert M'Cleery's ho'.el iind chaff-shed. The hotel contained 1 1 rooms and kitchen, and the chaff-house, which was very largo, adjoined, containing 25 tons hay, 000 bushels corn, and a quantity of oats, besides the engine and machinery.

MEN WHO BORROW. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 March 1879

MEN WHO BORROW. Lending has been defined as ' giving interest and receiving thanks,' and the description is not a bad one. The Globe says : — Few favours ever meet with so little gratitude as loans of any descrip tion. The proverb says, ' Who goes a borrowing goes a sorrowing,' but iu the end it is the lender who lias to sorrow — that is, 11 lie cares to see his borrowed goods again. Rare it is to find a man who will repay borrowed cash punc tually, rarely yet the friend who will return a borrowed umbrella at all. Borrowing is the secret form of begging, as it is the racist shameless. People who would not ask the gift of a penny have no hesitation in requesting the loan of j£5, though they must he aware at the time of making tlie request there is little chance of the debt ever being repaid. Yet, if refused, they will say with much virtuous indignation He actually refused merely to lend the ] money. I did not ask for a gift.' No borrower ever does that, but iu most eases the loan bec...

Most of them had been only two months landed in the French colony when they made their escape. Tliey appear to be more intelligent than the last two landed here. Their names are Louis Ouvrard, engraver, Angers, Marne-et- Loire ; Schiess Joseph, cabinetmaker, Mar seilles : Vain, driver, Marseilles ; Auguste Toisel, cook, Paris ; Petanga, sailor, Naples, Italy ; and the sixth - man was too sick to be transhipped from the Victoria off Flat-top, and had to be taken ou to Rockhampton. It appears that they escaped from the coast, near the Hunchback Mountain, at 2 o'clock on the morning of the 12th January, in a boat floating near the shore, which they took upon . the ' French leave ' system.

MIRACLE PLAYS. Tiie earliest plays in England as throughout Europe generally, were essentially religious in character, and intended to convey religious truths in the most striking manner to au illiter ate people. They were for the most part written by churchmen, and acted by the clergy in the larger churcees. Some of these plays, which were 110 doubt acted upon some of the great festivals of the Church, represented in a dramatic form the principal events of the Bible history, and were intended to illustrate and impress upon the popular mind the leading doctrines of the Christian faith These plays were, not unnaturally, called Mysteries. 0 tli era were founded upon the legends of the saints, and represented the won ders of their lives and deaths.
