BACK r.RTWKKN TKI0K15TT AND HUSH, i A itACE for .1:200 i:-jidc was rowed over the champion course, Parramatta River, on Saturday afternoon, between Edwnrd Triekett and Michael Bash. The weather was fine and cool, and all that could ho desired for such a eontcst; but tho wind was blowing pretty strongly from tho adverse quarter, and this, coupled with tho fact that tho tide was ebbing, taxed the powers of ondurauco of both men to a considerable extent. At about 20 minutes to 5 o'clock Rush's boat was launched at Uhr's Point, and immediately afterwards Tricketf appeared on Walker's Point carrying his light skill on his shoulders, and having launched tho boat he pulled up to tho start ing point, whore Hush was then waiting. Both men appeared to bo in splendid fettle, although the palm in that respect was awarded by the onlookers to Triekett, and a general opinion seemed to prevail that ho had seldom beforo come to tho scratch on the Parramatta River in finer condition, llush if anythin...

The President said there was no special business to bo dealt with other than what might be brought forward at the meeting. With regard to the build ings and the fixing of tho date for the first show, the President thought it might bo as well to deal with this matter at the next meeting, as it was likely to elicit a considerable amount of disoussion.

SOME. FAILINGS OP 37EMALE CLERICS. Tite fineness which has attended the introduction of women into certain branches of the publio nervice— telegraphy, for instanco—in this country is so great that hardly ftnyono ventures evorv to allude to the failings of the fair sex in their now capacity. Mr. Faweett, it is. well known, lias nothing but praiso to say ot them, and tbo criticisms of humblor indi viduals are at onco Bet down to masculine prejudice. Yot it would be surprising if they had not charac teristic faults, as nobody disputes that they have charnctcristio merits, and if theso fnulls did not come out in positions to which they are yot as a sex unaccustomed. Even ardent advocatos of women's rights havo been heard to complain of tho want of attention and civility, the " what on earth do you want to be bothering me for?" air of young ladies in our post and telegraph offices. Far quieter, as r rule, than men, they are also, say theso critics, in finitely less obliging. Persons who ...

SELECT POETRY. THE WAY OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 8 December 1883

SELECT POETRY. THE WAY OF LIFE. - Them; ii many a rest in the road of life, If we would only stop to tn!;e it; And many a tone from the better lntnl, If the querulous heart would mitko it. To th« loul that is full of hope, And whose bcautiffti trust ne'er fajlcth, The grass is green and the Uowcir are bright, Though the winter storm prevuiluth. Better to hope though the olenitis hang low, And to keep the eye mill lifted : -For ho Bwcet blue sky will soon ]>wp through, \Vlien the ominous clouds ure rifted. There never was night without a day, t.r an evening without n moaning; And the darkest hour, as-the proverb goes, Is the hour before the dawning. There is many a gem in the path of life, Which we pass in our idlu pleasure, That is richer far than n jewelled crown, Or the miser's hoard of (roa-uuc; It may be the love of a little child, Or a mother's prayer to heaven, Or only a beggar's grateful thanks For a cup of water given. Better to weave in th$ web of life, A bright an.I...

MISCELLANEOUS. FAMOUS REBUKES. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 8 December 1883

MISCELLANEOUS. FAMOUS REBUKES. Eimiund Kean Vas v/oiit to say of himself that he could soft a sneer across Salisbury plain, iwid his career gave a special signifi cance to tho expression. He had the sensi tive temperament indicated by his hyper bolic saying, and in his earlier years he had, to a greater degree than most other men, of whose lives we have record, suffered from tlie slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. Nobler than any of the rebukes directed against those who have wounded his feelings in the days of his poverty, was that which, when fame and fortune were smiling upon him, he administered to the Earl of Essex. That nobleman, who was one of his most ardent admirers, remonstrated with him for being seen arm-iii^iriu vitli Incledon, the singer, telling. himUhat^t would militate against his being received* in aristocratic circles.

A LESSON FOR WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 15 December 1883

A LESSON FOR WIVES. CAUKsrE, fcliafc most celebrated of French cooks, met one day a woman weeping bit terly at the door of a wine-shop. To his commiserating question she explained that her htisbaud was within ; all his earnings were , spent there and his family left to starve. " How long has it been this way ?" " Oh, now and then for several years. He is a silversmith and earns good wages, but lie likes the lunches in there and once in he spends all he has." Close questioning re vealed the fact that the culprit liked good living, and the wife condemned him to boiled beef every day.
