The English Cricketers in New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 10 March 1877
The English Cricketers in New Zealand. THE old Cresarism-"Veni, vidi, vioi-aptly describes the progress of the All-England Eleven through Maoriland. At Hokitika, Auckland, Wellington, Taranaki, and Nelson, they "have' defeated their opponents in one innings. As a rule they have made good scores at the -wickets, notwithstanding the presence of twenty-two in the field. The smallest escore, 80, was-made at Taranaki, and ; perhaps may be blamed upon the indifferent 'character of the ground; but even there it was unnecessary for them to go to the wickets a second time. Twenty-two batsmen : had. two spells at the wickets, and yet-could not rival a score of 801 Alas for the New. Zealanders I They have attained some distinction with the rifle-thanks to the Maori war; but they are evidently anything but adepts with the bat and the ball. The Eleven sustained some humiliation in Aus tralia, .particularly in Sydney j but they mnst feel -consoled by such a succession of brilliant victories over ...

A Curiesity in Natural History. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 10 March 1877
A Curiosity in Natural History* AN- interesting specimen bas been obtained (says the Dunedin ' Evening Star ') from the North Island. It is the nest of the spider killing fly, and is ian example of how the balance is preserved by nature. The nest in question consists bf a series of cells made oi clay in the neatest manner, and .' in each -cell is imprisoned a good . fat spider. .The cell« are built in the corners of ' outhouses, .and even .in houses which :tare -mliabited, -and persons resident in the district -where these flies abound .say that ifca -coat or article of dress is left hanging up for some time, you may find a row-of cells built in Borne of the folds. It is, .we are H informed, a-most inter esting sight- to watch the clever little builder manipulating with its -'mouth, (to use a' bull) the èky: and building the collin which to immure the - unfortunate spider. The fly's object is not the extermination of the-great enemy of fly-kind, but merely to provide food for its ow...

Constantinople. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 10 March 1877
Constantinople. J -i CONSTANTINOPLE is about thirteen mile round, and is enclosed by walls On th&lt; western, or land side. The " Harbour," o: Golden Horn, on the north, divides it iron the Galata, and the Bosphörus divides i from tho Scutari. These are properly bui suburbs, but make up together the city oi Constantinople. It would be quite impossible to imagine a site bettor fitted for the buildinf of an imperial city on. Nothing would seen: to be wanting : and it is no wonder that th« eye of the world is every now and then fixée on it. The population of this impeidal citj is about half a million, and is made up of a somewhat motley group-of Greeks, Arme nians, Jews, Arabs, Europeans, and Turks thc Turks making up, as it would seem, about one-half of tho population. It musí be needless to say that the city stands on the site of antique Byzantium, founded 655 B.c. But long before Byzantium, even, there must needs have been a colony of some sort in such a spot of earth os thi...

-: .Lismore, March. 10, 1877. .-_ THE POLITICAL POSITION. UP to this time we have refrained from publishing the Parliamentary debates of the present Session, in this journal, for the simple reason that, in our humble opinion, there has scarcely been anything" worth republishing from the Sydney news papers in that direction. We have carefully read over the utterancès of our leading lights, but, with one or two exceptions, have failed to defect many grains .of wheat amongst the large quantity of chaff and person alities which is fast turning our House of ^Representatives into an arena for the display of all the weaknesses of human nature-night after night being taken up in ques tions and recriminations, while the business -of the country is shelved, so that honorable members may fight their personal battles to the bitter end.
