Melbourne Letter. TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 8 December 1893
Mellourtlaro ictir. ,----:o--- [on oue ows cOfRREEPONDetNT.J TuESDAY. TFKE annotincemlent that there is a disposition, on the part of the Govern ment to send to America.for agentleman to manage our railways, does not meet with general .favor; and, little wonder, in face of the fact that there is hardly a ' single railway in the United .states which has been administered with sufficient ability to keep it from insol vency. The suggestion put forward by Mr. Shiels when he was in the office, l namely that periodical conferences or consultations amongst the senior offices of the Railway l)epartment, should take place, was undoubtedly a good one, and should be tried before we admit that thle colony does not possess men of sufficient ability to control one of the great departments of the State. The trouble into which an ex-member of Parliament has got hIimself, may lead to fresh evidence concerning the dis appearance of the mace. Mr. John Frock, it will be recollected, was stated by wines...

Marshal MacMahon. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 8 December 1893
Marshal MacMahon, --0-o In France the generally received opinion is that the anecdote about Marshal MacMahon associated with the famous phrase "'I am here; here I remain"' (J'y euis j'y reste" is that it is as apoorpbal'as our own story about Wellington's "Up, Guards, and at 'em !' Amongthose whotell the anecdote about MacMahon there is not even an agrieement as to the circumstances under which it was uttered. As a rule, it is alleged to have been said at the taking of the Malakoff, and the phrase is undoubtedly characteristic of the Marshal's attitude on that occasion; but some have attributed it to a critical period during the battle of Magenta, while others again have even placed the saying so late as 1877,. when MaoMahon, in spite of: his unpopularity, .obstinately re fused to resign his omice as President. The latter esupposition is clearly in admissible, as the phrase can be proved to have been attributed to him much earlier, but it was very much in vogue during the latter par...

The End of the Long Journey. -o. John Sanderson was dying, In Summer, on Mendiposide, In the cottage where his father, And father's father, died. ' And dying has grown so common, And old men are so cheap ; There was only the parish dtor To see him ff to sleep. . And he thought he would last till morning, And left him in neighbor's care ; The tavern was terribly handy Death came when none was there. And he welcomed thoawfnlstranger With a smile of wrinkled joy, And only patiently sighing, "I'd like for to see my boy: "The lad has runned from the village A mort of yeare ago, And went to Bristow and 'lited, And left me the weeds to hoe. "Couldn't on vight and wrusle; Couldn't on whistle and zing; The maids a could smarm and viggle : The lads a could hold and fling." Sweet scent of the sad sweetbrier Came in from the garden bed; And he heard the wicket rattle, And he heard the sound of a tread. That rang on the stony threshold, And woke the eleepmg cat; And the gleam of a scarlet tuni- ...

Untidy Marie Antoinette. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 8 December 1893
Untidy Marie Antoinette. -0--- As the French Press will be too much absorbed next week with the R.ussian visitcrs to think of anything else, the hundredth anni. versary of Marie Antoinette's execution, our Paris correspondent tells us, was kept yester day by different Royalist journals. Some of them in supplements gave reprints of oensationsl pictures cf her trial, and copies, tinted, and in blacrend white, of her por traits. The memoirs of Baron Hi. Thiebaud, the friend of Frederick the Great, which have just come out, contain a dcacrip. tion of her as she walked from the Chapel , Royal of Versailles to her private apartments. It does not accord with the idea generally entertained of her eamptuary elegance. She was, the Baron says, dressed in white percale or a kind of thin cotton. It was so soiled and shabby that he, ould hive taken her for an under ee?ant had she not walked at some distance.. before a bevy of splendidly.dressaed ldies. Her whole appearance denoted caro?eseness. W...
