MISS HOSMER'S NEW MOTOR. The discoverer of what is claimed to be tbe nearest approach to perpetual motion is well known in art circles as of the first sulptors of the day, and has also given proofs of inventive faculty by patenting a mode of preparing imi tating marble from soft limestone. The London correspondent to the New Fork Post, thus describes an interview with the lady in December last : — Having had the pleasure of visiting Miss Hosmer at work in her studio in Rome, I wrote a request for an inter view, recalliug our former pleasant acquaintance. We had barely begun, to skim the surface of the artistic sub jects which I wished to discuss with Miss Hosmer, when she suddenly asked, ' What do you think I've been doing 1 No, you never would guess, so I'm going to tell you all about it. Nothing on the subject has been printed any where, and you shall liave the first chance of making it public. Well, I've turned inventor,' and here her eyes danced so mischievously that I felt sure...

STICKING-UP OF THE TILL TILL STATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 1 March 1879
STIGKING-UP OF THE TILL TILL STATION. On Monday night (says the Telegraph) news came to hand from our Balranald correspondent that a party of four men had taking to bushranging at Hatfield, near the Tvanhoe road, about sixty miles north of Balranald. The latter place is a small town on the north bank of the Jttiirrumbidgee, about loij miles from Jerilderie, but only about 20 miles from the Victorian border. It is, in fact, more a Victorian town than otherwise, for the most convenient means of 1 ?caching it from Sydney is via Melbourne. The district is mainly a pastoral one, with a population of about 600, of which 350 are located in the township. The four rufiinns who are emulating the daring deeds of the Kellys, and have assumed their name, have been engaged for some time in ' running wild horses,' but have not been very successful. Encouraged, no doubt, by tbe immunity from arrest enjoyed by the Mansfield murderers, the Hatfield gang determined to try their hands at plunder. Havin...
