LADIES' COLUMN. A French Lady on Conjugial Happiness. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 12 February 1870
ILADIES' COLUMN. ^ À French Lady on Oonjugial Happi- .> .ness. MH. EDITOR,-I am a Frenchwoman, and think it nmv be a comfort to your readers to learn some of the peon.' liarities which make tho married state, as it exists in France, supportable-nay, even dear (would you behove it ?) to a largo portion of Fronch people. It must be avowed that the French are totally deficient in the power of sporting their newly-acquired conjugial hap. piness in the eyes of strangers, as a young English couple will do so easily and graciously. Tho French bride is from the first deprived of all out-door endear ' ments ; but we have heard some of them say, content" ! edly, that suoh a show of love would make them uni comfortable-that they could wait for such demonstra tions till they were alone. As to couples of longer oxi perienoe, here again tho English lady. stands on an eminonce over her French rival. English husbands are - as a class, admirably submissive, but who that haslivèd intimately with E...

Destructive Pire at Circular Quay. Blackwall Stores Burnt. TIIK KIHI! AT THE HLACKAVATYI. STÜHES, CHI CU LAH QUAY. Shortly before 3 o'clock on Wednesday morning the inhabitants in that part of the city near the Circular Quay were alarmed hy tho fire bell, and shortly afterwards it was discovered that the exten sive range of stone buildings known as Mood's, or the Blackwall Wool Stores, were on fire. The indi cations first showed themselves in the front windows of the top floor, and the dense volumes of thick black smoke that thence issued told at once that the wool, with which the stores were fiBed, was burning. Shortly afterwards flames burst from the windows and roof, and then it was seen that a serious oalamity was impending Adjoining the actual seat of tho fire were four other similar build ings, all of which were in great danger, for the fire rapidly spread and increased in intensity, lighting up the shipping and wharves, and illuminating the quay in every direction.

PUBLIC HOLIDAYS. To the Editor of thc Town, and Country Journal. Sir,-Among the many amiable traits that dis tinguish our little community, there is none which so much " strikes a stranger" as tho hearty business like eagerness with which we set ourselves out for tho thorough enjoyment of our public holidays. It is a great but very common mistake on the part of our friends in tho old country to suppose that our sole object in staying here is " to push our fortunes " as fast and as far as we can-all tho whilo fondly anticipating tho time when wo may bo able to "return home" with a competency, and spend tho remainder of our days in tho only spot of earth where true happiness is to be found. O ur wonderful passion tor holidays sooms significant of other feelings and aspirations. It shows that we are nowise discontented with tho land whore our lot has been cast-that the attractions of our adopted country aro cordially ap preciated, and that wo have no mind to postpone tho enjoyment of p...
My Holiday Trip to Victoria and Tasmania. (CONTINUED.) [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 12 February 1870
My Holiday Trip to Victoria and Tasmania. (CONTIHÜBD.) CASTLE HOCKS, CASTLEMAINE. I retired to an apartment, furnished ?with considerable taste. There are but few hotels furnished like this one in Sydney. I could not help thinking how often the costly furniture, and decorations were occupied by rolUcking squatters from the interior, who resorted to this place occasionally, and who were unaccustomed to so much luxury in their every day Uves. However, I was too sleepy and tired to indulge much in these meditations. I was soon buried in any depth of feathers, with snug mosquito curtains drawn (for I heard those bussy cusses, blowing their horns about the room, ) and was almost immediately af terwards in the arms of Morpheus. I was aroused from my slumbers early in the morning by Mr. Young, who laughingly jeered me for my drowsiness, and said I did wrong to lie in bed while there was so much to be seen around me. Having satisfactorily discussed an ample breakfast with my friend, we agai...

TO THE N. S. W. 0. ASSOCIATION. Per favour of theTown and Country Journal. 1 Gentlemen,-Allowine to express my gratitude for the great exertion you have used in trying to obtain leave of absence, and also the geneorsity you have dis- played towards me. Your president is well aware the number of times (when in a better position than present) my services have been urgently requested, that, notwithstanding my loss of position, and also great pecuniary expense, I have always been at your command. In your secretary's letter the expense of a paid substitute is the ground on which you do not feel . justified in incurring loss. I may mention that an officer of the department would have been placed in charge of the station without >ny pecuniary outlay to your association. I am, Gentlemen, yours obediently, GEOEGE H. B. GILBEET. West Maitland, February 15.
