The ordinary fortnightly meeting, held in the Council Chambers, was attended by the Mayor (Alderman Smith), Aldermen Browne, Wilson, Christianson, Scrivener, Ashcroft, Taylor, and Bull. A letter from Mrs. Kirby, complaining of the damage done to her propertyby goats, was referred to the Inspector of Nuisances. Alderman Scrivener asked (without notice): (1) Have any steps been taken to see that all closets erected in the borough are in accor dance with the by-laws ? (2) Will the butchers be called upon to do all their killing outside the borough ? (3) Is it a fact that water and sewerage have been pumped on to the flat from the wool washing establishment? The questions evoked an irregular and protracted dis cussion, but failed to elicit direct answers from the Mayor, and finally were dealt with by a motion to the effect that a special meeting be held on the 12th instant to draw up by-laws to meet the matters brought forward, . the report of same to be; b...

HOW THE DUTCHMAN GAVE A PROMISSORY NOTE. There were two early German settler-i in the western part of Pennsylvania whoseo names were Peter - and John --. Peter had increased his farm by a tract of land adjoining, but he lacked about a hundred dollars of the sum which he had to pay for his new acouisition. IHe called upon his neighbour John to borrow the amount. John consented at once, and, going into another room, he brought out an old bread-basket, and counted down tle desired number of dollars; and then the two sat down to two largo earthen mugs of cider, and as many pipes of tobacco. After smoking over the.matter for a while, it occurred to Peter that, in similar tr-n sactions, he had seen or heard something like a note passing between the borrower and the lender,. and he suggested so to John. Paper, pen, and ink wereproducoc; and between the two a document was con cocted, stating thatJohn had loaned Peter one hundred dollars, which Peter would repay to John in "tree months." Thi...
COACHMAKEBS' SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886
COACHMAKEBS' SOCIETY. The strike committee of the Coach makers' Society met at the Barley Mow Hotel last evening. The secretary, Mr. E. Jones, stated the result of the inter view he and Mr. Westman had had with the Trades and Labour Council, viz., the appointment of a committee to wait on Mesasr. Clank and Co., with the object of effectinga settlementof the dispute between that firm and their men as to the eight hours. He stated that prior to thiscommit tee waiting on Messrs. Clank and Co., the latter had written to say that they con sented to the men's request for the eight hours system, and the committee had, therefore, nothing to accomplish. They had, however, waited on Mr. Clank, to talk over the subject with him, and reported that they had been received very. coutteously by him,'and had been able to remove a mis understanding from his mind as to the men not putting theircase to him before the society.

THE PADDINGTON DEPU TATION. (To thO Editor of the Globe.) Sir,--In a paragragh in this evening's issue of your paper, it is stated that I was behind time with regard to a deputa tion that waited on the Minister for Works to-day, in reference to drainage at Paddington, and that when Mr. Butcher and I appeared on the scene we found the wind taken out of our sails by our ener. getic colleagues. I write to state that I knew nothing of any such deputation, was never asked to join in or introduce it, and I was not in or even near the Department of Works at any time to-day. I hope you will kindly insert this, in justice to my. self.-Yours obediently, W. J. TRICKETT. •Fairlight, Edgecliff Road, 8th January. * Our reporter obtained the informa tion from a gentleman of position and influence, who did accompany the deputa tion.-En. Globe.

WANTED—BATHS. (To the Editor of the Globe.) [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886
WANTED-BATHS. (To the Editor of the Globe.) Sir,-It must be apparent to anyone who has given the, subject a moment's thought that the bathing facilities afforded to the public of Sydney are totally inade quate. Indeed, it is a constant source of surprise to visitors that, with our wonder ful water advantages, we should. be so bzdlyoff in this respect, and I venture to predict if a company was formed for the pur poseof erectinglarge andcommodious baths contiguous to the city, the shares would be rapidly taken up and the shareholders handcomely reimbursed on their outlay. During the summer months the baths at Woolloomooloo (the only ones at present available to the dwellers in the city) are over-crowded, both morning and evening; besides 'which, many people have a pro. judicq against them, as they say the water is impregnated with [sewage. The baths at Dawe's Point have been closed for the past three months, pending, I understand, deepening operations. I must admit that this is a very...

ENJOYING THEMSELVES. To illustrate how completely some people are at the mercy of domeztics, a correspon dent who resides in the neighbourhood of Hampstead Heath gives the following amusing narrative: Arriving home rather late a few nights. back, I was accosted by a policeman who was hanging about outside my gate. " Beg pardon, sir, but are you aware of the goings-on of your servants ? " "No; what do you mean ? " "I said, rather sharply. "Well, sir, it's just this; there ain't one on 'em about the place.'" '" Oh, nonsense," I said. "' Why, they've all been in bed. and asleep these two hours." "Excuse me, sir, but if you will follow I'll soon convince you that you haven't a servant in your house." Seeing thatthe manwassoriousIfollowed him to a certain dancing saloon not very far away. I.had little difficulty in gain ing admittance, and there, sure enough were cook, housemaid, and nurse, disport ing themselves in the mazy valso.

It wai in the autumn of 1820 that the event occurred. A master baker, of Hammersmith, whose house and shop were on High-street, had k.id a wager of two guineas with the fat landlord of the Crown and Anchor, that he would load five-and-twenty quartersn loaves of bread upon his little zart, and that himself and his mnastiff would sot forth upon the road with it, and run a race with the six-horse stage coach called "The Hammersmith Maid," starting at Stone bridge cross-road, and extending the race to the second mile-stone beyond, making the distance about a mile and a halE When the coach arrived at. the in-i from Londoni the driver readily agreed to pe. form his part of the race.

AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886
AMUSEMENTS. "Cinderella," which has drawn full houses to the Theatro Royal for the past fortnight, will enter on its third week this evening. A judicious pruning of the dia logue and the suppression of one or two small objectionable , features, has resulted in the piece being better received. "Across the Continent," with Mr. J. L. Hall as Knock-me-down-Johnny, is billed for to-night at the New Opera House. The piece abounds in sensational scenes, and is meeting with great success. "Mother Goose" is apparently set for a long run at the Olympic, where Miss Ida Osborne's sweet singing and the comi calties of the other members of the com pany nightly attract large audiences. The Federals, at the Academy of Music, seem to become funnier every night. The first portion of their programme shows the musical abilities of the company, and the "black pantomime" proves how long they can make absurdity more absurd. A matinee performance will be given at Madame Woodyear's circus, Bolmoro Park, thi...
