A Headless Pig. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 22 December 1888

A Headless Pig. A remarkable freak of nature was brought under our notice on Saturday last, (says the Queensland Times), by Mr. Samuel Lewis, superintendent of the Sandy Gallop Lunatic Asylum, in tho shape of a dead headless pig. This peculiar specimen of the porcUne speeioa was one of a litter of seven which were farrowed at the institution on the previous evening. Its ears were intact, but beyond them there was not the. slightest sign of a head — in faot, it must have been born with out one, for the skin was unbroken in the vicinity, and thcro were no marks of its having been tampered with in any way. The remainder of tho animal was fully formed in every particular.

The Islands and Natives of Torres Straits. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 22 December 1888

The Islands and Natives of Torres Straits, f Tub Hon. J. Douglas has forwarded to-±he Brisbane Courier the following notes on the anthropology of Torres Straits, written by Mr, Alfred O. Haddon, of Thursday Island : The natives of Torres Straits are divisible into three main groups. 1, Those of Boigu, Dauan, and Saibai, who are very closely allied to the inhabitants of the corresponding coast of New Guinea. 2.

Daniel O'Connell at the Bar. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 22 December 1888

Daniel O'Coauell at the Sat. AS extraordinary anecdote is told by Mr, Fitzpatrick of O'Counell's experience at the bar. One of the famous advocate's earliest professional triumphs was at Tralee :— '' The question in dispute touched the validity of a will which had been made in atlicalo mortis* The instrument seemed drawn up in due form, the witnesses gave ample confirmation that it had been legally executed. One of them was an old servant. . O'ConneU .cross examined mm ana auowea nun to speaK on. in the hope that he might Bay too much. Nor was the hope disappointed. The witness had already sworn that he had seen the deceased sign the will. * Yes,' he went wi, * * I saw him sigu it, and surely there was life in him st the time.' The expression, frequently repeated, led O'Counell to suspect that it had a peculiar meaning. Pixing.his eyes on the old man, he said, « You have taken a solemn oath before God and man to speak the truth, and the whole truth ; the eye of God is upo-.i you, an...

Thrift.

The Highest Waterfall in the World. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 22 December 1888

The Highest Waterfall in tha 'World. A conilESPONDENT of the ' Otago Daily Times' having written to that paper giving certain figures as to the height of waterfalls in various parts of the world, with tho object of showing that tl:e recently discovered Sutherland Falls in New Zealand are ex ceeded by many others, Mr. Adams, chief surveyor of Otago, has replied, giving authoritative measurements of the other falls mentioned. Ho savs : The hpi.n-lif, nf thp greatest fall in the Yosemite Valley, as measured l-y three different authorities, is 14!Sft. The Orca Falls, Monte Rosa Alps, said to be 2400ft. high, is merely one of those little cascades of which hundreds may be seen in the New Zealand Alps, any time after rain, varying in height from 2000ft. to 5000ft. and upwards. Gavarnie, in the Pyrenees, is 1300ft., and not 1400ft. ; the Staubbock, in tho Bernese Alps, is 925ft, not 1000ft.

Black Hamburgs. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 22 December 1888

Black Hambuigs. A coriiebposdent of the ' Manchester Weekly Times' publishes the follomini; with reference to this favorite breed of fowls : — The black Hamburg is a fowl which can be thoroughly recommended to those ^ho desire a good layer, 'though its eggs are bather on the small sido. They will, however; just pass muster in our markets, and so long aa eggs are sold by number it is an advant go not to have very large ozies. At one time' his breed was very seldom seen, but by the t Forts of a few breeders it has been brought forward, and its own merits have won for * t a good position. It is one of the most ha dsoine of fowls, is hardy, aud can be bette ' kept in small spaces than either the pencil ed or the spangled Homhurgs. The origin of the black Hamburg is doubtful. Some hav . thought it to be the result of crossing between the silver-spangled Hamburg aud the black Spanish, but there seems to be no authority for this theory. There can be no doubt, how ever, that many of the pre...
