EXRAORDINARY DISGUISE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 March 1879

EXRAORDINARY DISGUISE. A curious and interesting discovery was made on board the Nautical Schoolship Vernon on Saturday morn ing. It was that of the assumption of male disguise by a girl who had worn it for eight years, with as complete a security from discovery as was evei' the case with the Spanish Nun, or Moll Flanders, or any others of the women whose adventures in masculine attire have been published. The girl has been arrested at Lambing Flat as a vagrant, and on conviction was consigned to the Vernon for a term of years. The name she bore was James Gould, aud under this she was, while on her way to serve her sentence, lodged on Friday night in the water police lockup. Next morning she was sent aboard the Vernon, and handed over to the boatswain for the routine of bathing, haircutting, and general puri fication. Here a scene occurred. 'James Gould,' aged 15, refused to strip, blushing and crying, to the amusement of the boys around, who would have doffed every stitch of clothi...

IN BATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 March 1879

IN BATTLE. Soldiers are agreed that, however brave a man be, his feelings during the first quarter of an hour under fire, are extremely disagreeable. Much of the reputation which Frenchmen won for that reckless valour called furia franccse came from the utter inability of their young troops to stand steady during that first quarter of an hour under a raiu of bullets, so that they would charge forward impetuously and break through the enemy's lines with their bayonets. This was all very well in the days of fighting at close range ; but in these times, when regiments advance in open' older, throwing out skirmishers by twos over a line which may extend for miles, a man has only to tire and obey the bugle about advanc or retreating. Ten minutes after the engagement has begun the field is generally so clouded with smoke that the soldiers cannot see to take aim, aud commence firing at random. Then it is that the men of good grit settle down to their work coolly. The iirst attack of nervou...

THE VICTORIAN GOVERNMENT AND THE ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 March 1879

The Victorian Government and i the Aiigus. The people of Victoria are accus tomed to boast of their democratic spirit — of their contempt for titles of all kinds, and of their devotion to the principle, if we may be permitted to use that word, that so long as he con ducts himself honestly ' Jack is as good as his master.' Yet, like Uncle Jonathan, whom they are so anxious to imitate, they really dearly love a | ' lord,' and when they cau get the next thing to one, they never fail to lionise him. Thus Mr. Bryan O'Loghlen lived amongst tlieni for twenty years without attracting any particular at tention, and could not attain any higher position than that of a crown prosecutor, bat no sooner does he suc ceed to a baronetcy than he is at once taken in hand by the ' liberals ' and returned for West Melbourne, which had hitherto been regarded as ' safe ' for the moderate party. On his obtain iug a seat in the House of Commons, Mr. Berry evidently saw that he might make use of him in the e...

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. SOUTH SEA TRADING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 March 1879

SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. South Sea Trading. Among the many lessons traders to the South Sea Islands may learn from Captain Cook's life, is caution in supply ing lethal weapens to the natives ; but this lesson seems to have been so utterly neglected that the neglect has given rise to many a massacre, and the danger j of many more. We learn from Queens laud that firearms compose the best trade for the island of New Britain, and it does not come within any shock of surprise to read directly afterwards that man;1 massacres have been per petrated at that spot. Readers of Captain Cook's life cannot have failed to notice the care he exercised not to j allow the islanders to become too well i acquainted with firearms and the method | of handling them. It may be said that all his care did not prevent bis being ! murdered ; but the tight iu which he j lost his life was the result of a variety j of causes, and did not arise from any ! iusult or injury he had done to the | people of Owyhhee. Can it...

THE USES OF PAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 March 1879

THE USES OF PAIN. The question is often asked (says the Lancet), ' What is the use of pain? It is scarcely conceivable that the infliction has no object.' There are obviously j two aspects of this question ; in one \ Science has an immediate interest ; with the other it has a secondary, but not unimportant, concern. The first is essentially physical. What useful pur pose does pain subserve in the animal economy 1 The answer is thrust upon us by daily observation aud experience. There are two sentinels posted, so to say, about the organism to protect it alike from the assaults of enemies with out and exacting friends within. The Iirst of the guardians is the sense of fatique. When this speaks, there is need of rest for repair. If the monitor be unheeded, exhaustion may supervene ; or, before that point of injury is reached, the second guardian will perhaps inter pose for the vital protection- — namely, pain. The sense of pain, however, is more directly significant of injury to struct...

THE VICTORIAN STOCK TAX [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 March 1879

The Victorian Stock Tax In defending his stock-tax a short time ago, Mr. Berry told the people of Victoria that the tax would not only give them something, but would supply them with something to give away. The lion, gentleman assumed that the tax would be sufficiently obnoxious to New South Wales to lead the Govern ment of this colony to yield to any terms for the sake of its repeal. Thus, Mr. Berry hoped the Border duties might be abolished greatly to the ad vantage of Victoria. We are now informed that exactly the same line of tactics is being followed by a greater statesman than the Chief Secretary of Victoria, Prince Bismarck, like Mr. Berry, is also resolved to try his hand at the carrying out of a pro tectionist policy, and, like the Vic torian statesman, he regards protec tion not only as a means of internal prosperity, but as a weapon, for carry ing ou an external combat. If we take nothing, he suys, we shall have nothing to give away, but by imposing high duties on foreign...

EARNESTNESS, OLD AND NEW. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 March 1879

EARNESTNESS, OLD AND NEW. I ~ A good many woivls and phrases which were once held in high honour in the country have been turned iuto ridicule by the choicer religious spirits of our own time. Among these ' the sober piety' of our ancestors has couie in for its full share of laughter, and lias been associated in the public minds with square, high-backed pews, fiddles and bassoons in the gallery, nasal responses pronounced by the clerk alone, and a good deal or sleeping during tlie sermon. Yet it is doubtful if more solid fruits were not borne by this uninteresting tree than are produced either by the fervour of Ritualism or the inspirations of 'Humanity.' Whether it is a fact or not that English work, for instance, has fallen oft' since the eighteenth cen tury in thoroughness and honesty I do not undertake to say ; but the affirma tive has been widely maintained, with out, as far as I know, provoking any serious contradiction, and has been acknowledged with regret by some of the war...

THE WEST BOURKE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 March 1879

The West Bourke Election. They have funny ways of carrying on elections in Victoria — at least they are modes to which people of the English lace are unaccustomed. At an election not long ago for a portion of the met ropolis, the Government made free use of the railways for bringing down its supporters; a notorious partisan of a functionary of a political organization was made Returning-officer ; and a suc cessful attempt was made to prevent the electoral roll from being purged of the names of dummy voters. At the recent election for West Bonrke another novelty has been introduced. At a place called Newliam an insufficient supply of balloting papers was furnished, and when seventy-five votes had been recorded the voting neoessarily came to an end, although there were 17' votes unpolled. Of , those that had been palled only about one-third were for the Government caudidute, and it is, of course, presumable that the same pro portion would have held good among the remaining voters. The...

The ReturningOflicerat West Bourke has taken counsel's opinion as to the validity of the election, aud it is said will accompany the return of the writ with a statement of facts ; but the return will declare Deakin elected. The charge against Cantain Gay, of the Seagull, for recklessly navigating his vessel, and causing the loss of the schooner St. Kilda, was dismissed, as the magistrates considered that there were faults on both sides.

THE ROMANCE OF DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 March 1879

THE ROMANCE OF DEATH. 'To-moiuiow I will utterly confute all that I have proved to-day, by stronger arguments,' said Simon of Tournay, at the close of a lecture in which he vaunted that he had proved till the great mysteries of religion. On the morrow he was laid by apoplexy. George Valla was hurrying from his lodgings to give a lecture on the probability of the immortality of the soul, bnt before lie reached his class-room he had solved the problem, for himself at least, by dropping dead on the way. The impious and profligate Pietro Aretino, who boasted that lie had libelled everybody dead or alive, with the exception of the Almighty, whom he had spared because he knew nothing of Him, terminated his existanee characteristically. He was drinking and enjoying himself with certain other ecclesiastics, and one of thorn, telling a story of Aretino's sister, little enough to their credit, the wit leaned his chair back to laugh with full freedom, slipped, aud dashed out his brains on the ...
