INTERCOLONIAL TELEGRAMS. MELBOURNE, THIS DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 8 January 1886

INTERCOLONIAL TELEGRAMS.' (rOflo ouR oweN COnRRESPONDrNTS.) MIELDOURNE, Turs DAY. The supplies of cattle have been so large at Flemington that the sales have to take two days still. The prices for prime beasts are very firm. It is expected that the break up of the drought in Queensland and New South Wales will bring down prices. The steamers Adelaide and Rotomahana had a trial of speed down the bay yester day. The Adelaide had a slight lead leaving Williamstown. By 15 miles down the Rotomahana put on a spurtand passed her, and was through Port Phillip Heads five minutes sooner. The annual assembly of the Methodist body is rapidly approaching, and a pro posal will be made to amalgamate the whole into one grand federated Melthodist body, and thus sweep away rivalry. The plasterers are likely to be success ful in their strike. The employers are giving in all round. The wharf labourers' strike still con tinues, though the unions are likely to get the worst of it.

AN AFFAIR OF MONEY AND OF HONOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 8 January 1886

AN AFFAIR OF MONEY AND OF HONOUR. D'Esterrp, a noted Trish duellist, and afterwards shot by O'Connell, had been one of the most gallant ollicers in the navy before he became a Dublin wine merchant, in which business he embarked about the beginning of the century. It would appear, unfortunately, that he did not bring strictly comnmercial habits into his new order of life. When he put his name to paper, the discounter of his acceptances might safely, as a general rule, deduct, with the interest, the price of the "pro test" as well, and even leave a margin for the cost of the writ, which would require to be threatened at least, if not served, before the obligation would be attended to -and satisfied. One day, Billy Kirwan, a well-known bill-broker, of great wealth and equal shrewdness, was offered, as he sat on his accustomed window-sill in the courtyard of the Commercial, Buildings, it bundle of liills for discount by a merchant who had taken them in the way of busi ness. It was Mr. K...

ADVENTURES OF A CAT IN THE SOUTH-SEA ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 8 January 1886

ADVENTURES OF A CAT IN THE SOUTH-SEA ISLANDS. A ludicrous circumstance occurred, which will illustrate the ignorance and superstition of the people at taratonga, just at the period when the native teachers of the Gospel from other lislands first landed. A favourite cat lhad been taken on shore by one of the teachers' wives on their first visit, and, not liking his new companions, Tom fled to the mountains. The house of tihe priest Teiike, who had just destroyed his idol, was situated at a distance from the settlement; and, at 'ridnight, while he was lying asleep on his mat, his wife, who was sitting awake by his side, musing upon the strange events of the day, beheld with conster nation two fires glistening in the doorway, and heard with surprise a mysterious voice. Almost petrified with fear, she awoke her husband, and began to upbraid him with his folly for burning his god, who, she declared, was now come toboe avenged of them. " Get up and pray, get up and !pray," she cried. The ...

TASMANIA. JANUARY 4. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 8 January 1886

TASM1ANIA. SJANUARY 4. The Christmas and New Year holidayS have passed pleasantly; glorious weather has prevailed, sunshiny but cool, more like . bright spring days than those of mid summer. Happily, too, the accidents and mishaps, which often mar festivities, have been few, and thus merrymaking has not turned to sorrow. On Friday a sudden squall on the River Derwent caused some sailing craft to capsize, and one young man named Morrisey was drowned at Sorell, and this is the only fatal mishap recorded. The early race meets, preliminary to the more important events at Lanunceston and Hobart, which have taken place during the present week, passed off well. The Brighton Racing Club held their annual meet on New Year's Day, and got off five smart events to the gratification of a large crowd who muster annually at this plea sant little resort from Hobart. At Deleraine, further north, the local Turf Club also held their summer meet, and though the entries were small the events were well c...

THE DAY'S DOINGS. A third edition of the Globe will be pub lished shortly after 4 o'clock, containing ths latest local news and telegrams from all parts of the world. The third edition matter will be placed on our eighth page. An inquest into the circumstances attending the origin of the late fire at Newcastle was heldyesterday. "Mr. Lynch, the grocer of Hunter-street, in whose pro omises the fire started, was subjected to a long cross-examination, apparently with the view of showing that his stock was not of the value for whiclhit was insured, and that before the firWhis liabilities were heavy. Mr. Lynch, however, passed very well through the ordeal, and the value he put on his goods was borne out by a pro fessional accountant, who had made an examination of the stock for business pur poses only a few days before the fire. The jury returned a verdict to the effect that there was no evidence to show how the fire had originated. The dispute at Shadier's came before the Trades and Lab...

NOTES AND NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886

NOTES AND NEWS. Several great earthquake waves from the Pacific were observed at San Fran cisco one day last wHek at intervals of 35 minutes. M. de Lesseps, having just celebrated his 80th birthday in Paris, is about to start to Panama to inspect the canal operations. Lieut.-General Sheridan reports that the United States army contains 2154 officers and 24,705 men, and urges that these numbers sho!ld be increased, as the army has so much frontier to cover. Captain Cecehi, the explorer, who has lately returned from Zanzibar to Rome, has submitted to the Italian Foreign Office the draft of a treaty of friendship with that country. The Italian Minister of Finance, Signor Magliani, has refused to allow an increase of expenditure in any department except the Navy, and that only for the comple tion of the fleet. At the Roseberry dinner in Edinburgh tinned Australian meats formed a part of the banquet-this being considered a deli cate compliment to the colonial sympathies of the guest of t...

CHILDREN'S CORNER. THE QUEEN'S CHILDHOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886

CHILDREN'S CORNER. TUE QUEEN'S CHILDHOOD. The Princess Victoria (now our most gracious Queen) used to take an airing constantly in her pony phaeton, whenever the weather permitted, and frequently passed the cottage of an old womanu who was remarkable for the enthusiastic manner in which she expressed her attach ment towards her. Driving past one morning as usual, the old lady, standing on her humble threshold, clasped her hands together and exclaimed, "God bless you, sweet Princess; may you live to be Queen of England !" The child imme diately stood upright in her carriage, and bowing gracefully, replied with earnest ness, " I thank you, ma'am." 'Walking one day on the Downs, she amused herself (as was her frequent habit) by running on before her mother and governess, accompanied by her beautifal little dog Nero, till she overtook a little girl of about her own age, of the peasant cass, neatly dressed, with whom probably she wished to enter into conversation, or otherwise really thi...

A GENTLEMANLY POACHER. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886

A GENTLEMANLY POACHER. Lord Saltoun has just published a book made up from the meniories of his earlier days, in which there is much amusing reading. His lordslhip made the acquaint nnce of a IBadenoch man, named Donald Kennedy-or "Donal MnacGourlich Mhic Donell." Donald, who is.described as six feet high and one of Nature's gentlemen, became his lordship's body servant after a meeting at Coignafearn, Strathdearn, in 1845, and accompanied him in all his wan derings until his death in 1878. This faithful attendant forms the hero of some of the best stories in the book. Once Kennedy and two friends were going to a fair at Inverness, in September, and they thought it would be a good plan to shoot over the moors from iladenoch to Carr bridge, and on arriving there hand the bags to the Perth and the Inverness carrier for sale in the Highland capital. This plan they carried out. At Carrbridge the carrier told them he intended to pass the night at Freeburn, and advised them to go on before...

THE DUCHESS OF MARLBOROUGH'S EYE-WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886

THE DUCHESS OF MARL BOROUGH'S EYE-WATER. Soon after the battle of Oudenarde the Duchess of Marlborough made a tour into Flanders, under the pretence of compli menting the duke on his victory, but, in fact, to inform him of the cabals of his enemies, which it was not safe to entrust to writing. Her grace landed at Dunkirk, where she slept the first night. In the morning she proceeded on her journey, but her thoughts rising intent on more important concerns she omitted giving the chambermaid the usual present. The girl, who attributed this neglect to a want of generosity, thought of an expedient to compensate herself, andl with this view she purchased a number of phials, and after filling them carefully with some coloured water, corked and sealed them up close. This done, she reported that she had a quantity of the Duchess of Marlborough's eye-water, which her grace, on leaving Dunkirk, had put into her hands to sell. The stratagem took; the eye-water was in great demand both by rich ...

EDMUND KEAN. On one occasion, when fulfilling a starr leg engagement at Portsmouth, Kean accepted an invitation to luncheon at one of the chief hotels of the pleco. The landlord waited on the party in person. Kean no sooner caught sight of him than his manner changed. "Stay, is not your name -P" The landlord answered in the affirma tive. "Then, sir, I will not eat or drink in your house. Eight years ago I went into your coffee-room, and modestly requested a glass of ale. I was then a strolling player, ill-clad and poor in pocket. You surveycd me from head to foot, gave some directions to your waiter, who looked at me suspiciously, and then presented to me the glass in one hand, holding out the other ior the money. I paid, and he gave me the glass. I am better dressed now, and can drink Madeira. I am waited on by the landlord'in person; but am I not the same Edmsmd Kean I was then, and had not Edmund Keau the same feelings then as he has now P" The landlord stammered an apology. "Apo...

This query was addressed to my younger brother, whom I found sit ting at one of the reading desks in the Sydney Public Library.'

I munmured some indiz tinct apology for the impropriety of which I had been guilty, and then, accompanied by my fraternal re lative I left the edifice in question and descended to the street. " Shall we take a turn in the Domain, tfroatlllo tsio ?" (brother mine). Receiving no reply from my com panion, whoso look of profound ab straction proclaimed that he had not heard sme, I reiterated my proposal, to whichli.o acceded, but with an air of such utter indifference as led me to suppmse that. had I suggested an excursion to t'he Sahara, or regions of Araby the blest, he would ...
