SELECT POETRY. TO-MORROW. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 6 February 1869

SELECT POETRY. TO-MORROW. " There is a land where grief shall sleep, And joy and peace awaken ; Where moments shall too swiftly sweep To be by care o'er taken. There pleasure drest in fadeless flowers Smiles at departed sorrow, And hope rests in contentment's bowers : We'll reach that land—to-morrow. " We leave behind a pathway strewed   With many a bitter token       Of faults and follies unsubdued, And resolutions broken ; Bright expectations, rainbow built, Melting in showers of sorrow :   But this dark course of pain and guilt We'll cease to tread—to-morrow. " To-day, and every day we've passed, Has brought its toil and trouble ; We ever meet an envious blast To break the glittering bubble. Our labour yet is but in vain, Our pleasures end in sorrow, Our dearest hopes we never gain ; ' Twill not be so—to-morrow. " We'll throw away the present hours ; We'll scorn the present pleasure,   To- morrow's prom...

AURELIA'S UNFORTUNATE YOUNG. MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 6 February 1869

AURELIA'S UNFORTUNATE YOUNG.   MAN.   BY MARK TWAIN. The facts in the following case came to me by letter from a young lady who   lives in the beautiful city of San José ; she is perfectly unknown to me, and simply signs herself " Aurelia Maria,"   which may possibly be a fictitious name. But no matter, the poor girl is almost heart-broken by the misfortunes she has undergone, and so confused by the conflicting councils of misguided friends and insidious enemies, that she does not know what course to pursue in order to extricate herself from the web of difficulties in which, she seems almost hopelessly involved. In this dilemma she turns to me for help, and supplicates for my guidance and instruct- tion with a moving eloquence that would touch the heart of a1 statue. Hear her sad story :- She says that when she was sixteen years old she met and loved, with all: the devotion of a passionate nature, a young man from New Jersey, named...

HOW TO GET ON. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 6 February 1869

HOW TO GET ON. FIRST, you must abandon all those pursuits which depend for success upon'; refined appreciation. You must seek;, to do something which many people demand. I cannot illustrate what I mean better than by telling you what I often tell my publisher, whenever he speaks of the slackness of trade. There is a confectioner's shop next door, which is thronged with people ; I beg him (the publisher) to draw a moral from this, and to set up, himself,   an eating-house. That would be ap- pealing to the million in the right way. I tell him he could hire me and others of his " eminent hands" to cook instead of to write, and then, instead of living on our wits (slender diet, indeed !), we ourselves should be able to buy books, and should become great patrons of literature. I did not tell him—because it is not wise to run down authors in the presence of pub- lishers—what I may mention to you, that many of us would be much more wisely and wholesomely employed in cooking th...

A TRUE SOCIAL EVIL. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 6 February 1869

A TRUE SOCIAL EVIL. We constantly hear of the scandalous wrongs of the poor. Much of what is said on the subject is mere fustian, the vapid windiness of philanthropists who only half know what they are talking about ; that is, who only know the misery of the surface without having, any clear and definite ideas as to the seeds and roots of it underneath. The truth is, that the ugliness of the condi- tion of the poor is very easily percepti- ble by anybody with his five senses ; and then people of very excitable imagination cannot think that. such ugliness is anything but a product of gross social injustice. The injustice of society is a kind of phrase that fills the mouth and warms the heart, without exacting too serious and precise an ex- ertion of the understanding, which is always an immense gain in any matter. In somewhat of the same spirit we hear the wrongs of the poor ascribed to the bloated aristocracy; or to the settle- ment of landed property in large lumps ; or to the gree...

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] January 27. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 6 February 1869

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] January 27. THE defeat of Mr. Martin's vote of censure by the largest Government majority that the well-badgered ministry have been able to secure this session, has placed the latter in a position to, at any rato, report progress in financials. The supplementary estimates have passed, and tho estimates in chief are not likely now to give much further trouble, for there is no doubt that any more displays of factiousness on the part of the Opposition will tend to a still larger majority on the Government side, especially as tho Ministry state their intention of losing no time in maturing their plans, and calling the House together at the very earliest possible date most likely in June. The business of the Session is now therefore virtually over, and prorogation may bo looked for in about another fortnight, unless, as is by the way fully expected, there is a " jolly row " over the Macleay Report which is, I believe, to be tabled this (Tuesda...

MELBOURNE MEMS. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] January 30, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 6 February 1869

MELBOURNE MEMS. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]   January 30, 1869. IT is not often that a Ministry can point with proud satisfaction to the fact that one of their number has triumphantly defied all attempts to bring a charge of perjury and bribery to an issue. Such, however, is the glorious boast of the M'Culloch's Cabinet. Mr. C. E. Jones has hitherto kept his   antagonists at bay. Accused of accepting the sum of £60 from a man named Moses   Alexander, the hon. the Commissioner of Railways has endeavoured to delay the trial as long as possible. He is very shrewd. Ho knows that the public mind is proverbially changeable. He is aware that if he can pro- tract the enquiry to unusual length, the people will become tired of listening to the tale of his infamy. To this end, he has been steadily working. The ministerial news- paper is in his pay, and the ministerial in- fluence is at his back. So, up to this time, the case of Alexander v. Jones has be...

Parliament of New South Wales. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 2. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 6 February 1869

Parliament of New South Wales. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, FEBRUAHV 2. MINISTERS, in answer to questions, said that a fee of one guinea was paid on the appren- ticing of children from the Roman Catholic though not from the Protestant Orphan School ; it was paid to the clerk, who kept no account of the amount received ; and that the dying declaration of O'Farrell was not in possession of the Government, who had appointed a Commission to inquire into the subject of the abstraction, by a recent Minis- ter, of certain Government papers. Petitions were presented by Mr. RYAN, from Emu Plains, in favour of removing the toll from the Nepean bridge ; by Mr. LORD, on behalf of Mr. Dangar, from Warialda, for the establishment of a District Court ; and by Mr. MATE, from the Hume, in favour of additional representation. Mr. ROBERTSON moved the adjournment of the House as a mark of respect to the memory af the late Dr. Mitchell, a very old colonist, and a member of the other House. Mr. PARKES ...

FASHIONS FOR DECEMBER. (From La Follet.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 6 February 1869

FASHIONS FOR DECEMBER. (From Le Follet.)   IN our last number we spoke of plaid as being extremely; fashionable, and we must again refer to it, for it may really be called " the rage " just now. We find it used in a   variety of materials. Plaid satin is very elegant, but, of course, only fit for rich toilette. Sometimes it is used as a trimming on a velvet or silk dress, and this produces a very charming effect. For instance, a black   silk trimmed with blue or green plaid ; or a rich pearl-grey silk, with plaid biasis of red and green with threads of blue—the camarge or looped-up upper skirt being entirely of the plaid, and trimmed round with a deep   fringe.       The materials most in vogue this winter are satin faille plain, striped, or plaid velvet; plush ; reps ; poplin, plain or shot ; the woollen tartan, and cloth. The variety of trimmings is also great, but jet has no longer a place ...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 6 February 1869

GENERAL NEWS. As a proof that river water is mixed with milk in Bathurst, a correspondent writes to the Times :-" The milk vendors assure us that their milk is pure from, the cow ; but this morning I had ocular demonstration that the milk tins must have fallen into the river, inasmuch, as I found, swimming in one person's milk, a live fish. Had it been large enough for breakfast I should not have objected to the adulteration ; but I do object to tittle-bats and tadpoles being served up in milk for breakfast." Mr. W. Selwyn King has been appointed, as a graceful recognition, it is presumed, of his bravery in resisting the Gympie mail coach robbers, a magistrate of the territory   of Queensland. , _ THE POLICE.—It is understood that, in     consequence of some information received by the Inspector-General of Police, on inquiry into the assertion made by Mr. Driver in the Assembly, that certain officers were in the habit of receiving weekly paymen...

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 6 February 1869

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. A TELEGRAM from Philadelphia on Nor. 2nd says :- The Indians attacked the Pacilic railway 0n Saturday, interrupted the traffic, and wrecked one train. One person was killed. United States troops are being sont for to protect the railway. The Mofussilite, says that accounts from Hissar, Sirsa, and Bickaneer were very distressing as regarded the effects of the famine. It was reported at the latter place that parents were selling their children to save both from starvation. THE council of state of the canton of Obwald (Switzerland), has published an edict forbidding any youth under eighteen years of age to smoke, under a severe penalty. A NEW AGITATION has sprung up in New York. A lecturer there is urging that minors shall have the right to vote when they reach the age of eighteen, instead of waiting until they are twenty-one. ACCORDING to the Novedades the authori- ties have seized four large boxes filled with gold, silver, and valuables, which have been taken ...

HOLLOWAY'S OINTMENT AND PILLS.—Ab- scesses, Erysipelas, Piles—Unvarying success attends all who treat diseases according to the simple printed directions wrapped round each pot and box. They are invaluable to the young and timid, whose bashfulness sometimes endangers life. A little attention, moderate perseverance, and trifling expense will enable the most diffident to conduct any case to a happy issue, without exposing secret infirmities to anyone. The Ointment arrests the spreading inflammation, restrains the excited vessels, cools the over-heated skin, alleviates throbbing and smarting pain3, and gives great ease. The same directions also clearly point out when and how Holloway's Pills are to be taken, that their purifying and regulating powers may assist by adjusting and strengthening the constitution.
