ALL SAINTS CHURCH, MOONTA. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WALLAROO TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 10 May 1865
ALL SAINTS CHURCH, MOONTA. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WAXLABOO TIMES. Sib,—Having noticed a remark in your last issue, in a letter from " Our Kadina Cor respondent," relative; to the Rev. J. Pashley assigning his reasons for leaving the district, as one interested, I should like to make a few comments upon your correspondent's letter. Although I do not say that he has com mittedany error, still from the general* tenor •of Ms letter a misconception may arise in the jninds of any readers not acquainted with the. djstrict; and as the remarks are severe, X deem it right that it is only on those deserving of the rebuke that the stigma should rest. " Therefore,* on behalf of Moonta Church, I boldly assert that they are blameless in the matter, and altogether free from &ny degree of censure. • '* ' The remark to which I refer is as follows: —-"Ihave not heard who is to be his suc cessor, but surely the three towns, each boasting a church, can afford to support a permanent minister. ■ If ...

SCOTT'S HANDWRITING. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 10 May 1865
SCOTT'S HANDWRITING. Scott's own penmanship afforded, during his prime, the most striking and irresistible proof how'completely he must have submitted himself, for some very considerable period, j to the mechanical discipline of his father's] office; it spoke to months after months of his: humble toil, as distinctly as the illegible scrawl of Lord Byron did to his self-mastership from the hour that he left Harrow. " There are | some little technical tricks, such as no gentle- ! man who has not been submitted to a, similar i regimen ever can fall into, which he practised invariably while composing his poetry, which appear not unfrequently on: the MSS. of his best novels, and which now and then dropt instinctively from his pen, even in the private letters and diaries of his closing years." Mr Lockjbart refers particularly to a sort of flourish, at the bottom of the page, originally, he pre- j suines, adopted in engrossing as a safeguard against the intrusion of a forged line between t...

SYRIAN GOTHAMITES. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 10 May 1865
SYRIAN GGTHAMITES. Helbon is noted not more for its wine than for the stupidity of its inhabitants, whose reputation in this respect is similar to that of the wise nien of Gotham, as the waggish Merry Andrew styled his countryman, the Barons of Pevensey. Among the ridiculous stories/fathered on them, I will here repeat a few. Once upoti a time the inhabitants of Helbon declared Ifcemselves independant,; and were going to. establish a government of their own, but found themselves unable to carry out their intention, because there were hot inen: enough in the ; place to fill all the pnblip. offices. Another time, it is said, the jgood folk's of Helbon wished to drag a little on ohte'side a mountain which kept the mid^ daysun from their village. :With this object they tied a; rope to a laige oak growing on the Mountain, and pulied at it till-the rope broke, fall that they were* content to nostnone the removal of&feinburitam till some more fitting oppor tunity. -On another oecsi...

SNOWBALL RIOT IN GLASGOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 10 May 1865
SNOWBALL RIOT IN GLASGOW. On Thursday, Feb. 16, High-street and Blackfriarsrstreet, Glasgow, were the scenes of disgraceful disturbances, caused by a crowd of thoughtless young men and lads attending the university. During the. forenoon, groups of students assembled from time to time at the entrance to the University, and took delight in pelting pedestrians with snowballs. They did not seem to make any distinction between males and females ;. and old women and even children were thrown at—one little girl receiving such a blow with; a snowball that she was felled to the ground as if she had been struck by a bullet. The police showed great forbearance for a considerable time; but ultimately the constables were selected as targets for the practice of the students, who proved themselves good • marksman on. the occasion. One constable received a most violent blow from a snowbalK Sprgeant Sin clair detected the assailant, and cellared him. The students immediately surrounded the two unluc...
HOW STOLEN GOODS TRAVEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 10 May 1865
HOW STOLEN GOODS TRAVEL. j Considerable ingenuity Is displayed by thej thieves in conveying their unlawful possessions from one place to another. Hampers, clothes baskets, hat-boxes, carpet bags, and brown paper parcels, containing stolen articles, are carried by women dressed like servants, and by houest and unsuspecting errand boys, and; parties who frequently have no knowledge of the contents of the luggage. Stolen articles are booked regularly at the goods station, and travel along our streets and railways in com pany with honest inerchiaridlse. A thief will occasionally buy two or three pounds of cheese or butter, insert therein a gold watch or a diamond ring, place the eatable upon a plate, and the savory commodity is safely carried along the street under the detective's very I noise, whose only notion or desire concerning the cheese may be, that it would make a nice j rarebit for his Supper. Thousands of pounds' j worth of jewellery, have travelled the whole •; length of a ra...

AN ENGLISH INSTITUTION BORROWEL BY FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 13 May 1865
AN ENGLISH INSTITUTION BOR ROWED BY FRANCE. The French armyhas enriched its vocabulary with a fresh term, for to dine at "mess" is iaow a current form of speech, and they have not only got the word hut the thing. The Imperial Guard has been foremost in adopting this arrangement, the idea of which was gathered from what they witnessed in the Crimean campaign. It is now in full operation at the model mess-room organised for officers of the Paris garrison in the vast barrack, Rue *de la Pepinlere. Hitherto garrison life in all great towns was carried out on the plan of the .upper staJf frequenting exclusively ,a given hotel, while the subordinate ranks, Captain and lieutenants, held their modest symposium at a restaurant of less pretensions. This sys tem is now superseded,, and all grades of the services haye agreed to club their resources on the British principle. The purchase of plate, a cellar of wines, and the various pre liminary requisities, has, of course, delayed in most instan...
THE RECTOR AND HIS MOUSTACHE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 13 May 1865
THE RECTOR AND HIS MOUSTACHE. The Liverpool Mercury says that the rec^pr of a rather extensive parish near Wallapey Hool, Cheshire, was not very attractive, either a? regarded colour or dimensions—at least, so thought one of his congregation, who, being a thourough-going supporter of the Establishment, could not tolerate innovation in any form, and the moustache sported by the rector was deemed by him to be aninnoya tion of the most obnoxious land. This worthy member of the Church was also considerably grieved at what he considered the Poseyite tendencies of his pastor, who intoned, instead of reading the prayers; had substituted a collection of 44 hymns ancient and modem in the place of Tate and BradyVmetrieal r version of the Psalms of David; and preached in his surplice instead of a black gown. The offended .parishioner, who wished to have the Church service conducted according to his own notion, could not for a time think of a way by which he could gain his object •,&lt;...
LORD DERBY'S "HOMER." [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 13 May 1865
LORD DERBY'S "HOMER." Lord Derby does Homer well, because he is an Homeric kind of man. Homer is made up of battles and speeches. There is a true touch of Achilles about him. His version is as accurate as, Cowper's, and Cowper's might have been as effective as Lord Derby's, only he was an unhappy broken-spirited man, and unable to put fresh nature into his similes and a fiery spirit into his charge. Lord Derby's version is literal, and of the two I should think it easier to be literal than to be paraphrastic; but his own natural gifts have' been his best friends—that clear trenchant force, the knightly spirit, the eloquence. These have helped him better than learning or genius, although the learning, despite a slip or two, must be something considerable; and perhaps the mention of genius is only a state ment in different terms of the qualities I have mentioned. The mastery of epithet and phrase is that of a true poet. He cuts many a Gor dian knot by daring a poetic equivalent, which...
MUCK IN NEW YORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 13 May 1865
kUCK IN NEW YORK. In summer time there is scarcely any mad in New York, for the reason that the streets are rarely if ever watered, that it seldom rains, and that the power of the son is so tremendous that any deposit of liquid formed on the roadway is almost instantaneously dried up to an impalpable powder, and in the form of dust careers from north to south, and from east to west, in wild simooms, or wafts itself down pour throat, and settles on your lungs, and chokes up the pores of your skin. Mr Mechi would not do much with his liquid-manure process on the island of Manhattan. The sun would so fry and dry him up as speedily to drive him to desperation. But dry dirt may become as intolerable as wet. The unclean Liness of- New York is best expressed by a word inelegant in itself, but suggestive to all observant housewives of a very pregnant meaning—that of " Muck." Hie inhabitants of every street, with the two exceptions I have named, seem to revel in a perpetual license to shoot ...
LONGFELLOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 13 May 1865
LONGFELLOW Every back-driver on the road knows the bouse, ami speaks with admiration anil affec tion of the occupant. X think the Bostonians would make him a king if they could, for has he not made them famous in England, and do they hot covet the applause of Europe more than that of the whole world beside ? We remained in our carriage a few moments while my kind conductor entered the house to ask if its master would receive us- He was good enough to say that he would. He has suffered a most cruel and awful bereavement, a bereave ment the very bitterest that can afflict a tender and loving heart; and he lives now in almost entire seclusion—among his children, however, in peace, and comforting himself in the cultiva tion of good letters, and the accomplishment of a great work. We entered a pretty library parlour, strewn with all the litter of a man of taste and culture. Anon he came in, simply dressed, his long white beard floating upon his breast, a beautiful and patriarchial mao, b...
MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 13 May 1865
MISCEUiANEOTJS SHIPPING. The Boyal Shepherd, from Port Augusta, came round PointByleyat her usual time on Thursday afternoon. Arrangements had been made to put * on board of her 200 tons of copper\ and a great portion of it was in the trucks ready for ship ment, but the. stormy weather prevented her coming alongside the jetty, and on Friday morn ing, there being no signs of the weather mode rating, the steamer left for Port Adalaide. The steamer Eleanor returned to this port yes ; terday afbernoon from the wreck. Communica tion with her was impossible in consequence oi » the stormy weather.
THE LONDON FIRE BRIGADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 13 May 1865
THE LONDON FIRE BRIGADE. During the past year tbe efficiency of the London Fire Brigade has been severely tested, and, according to the annual report of their superintendent, Captain Shaw, the members of that force have acquitted themselves to his entire satisfaction. The total number of calls during 1864 was 1,715, of which 101 were false alarms, 127 " chimney alarms,'' and l,487fires. Of these 402 resulted in the total destruction or serious damage of buildings, &e., and 1,085 in slight damage. In comparison with 1863 there was an increase of S3 fires, while, taking the comparison of the average of the previous 31 years, the increase was as . great as 646. The above does not include trifling fires, which do not require the attendance of the brigade. Of these last there were about 4,000, the usual average. Nor are the ordinary calls for chimneys on fire included; during 1864 these numbered 6,000. An important feature of the past year has been the extension of the telegraph ...

A CLEOPATRA OF THE STAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 13 May 1865
A CLEOPATRA OF THE STAGE. While young Baddeley was airing his fine gentlemanshif) about town and at the theatres, there was a younger girl somewhere down in Westminister, fair as an Orient dawn, and wayward as a sprite, chafing and pouting under the strict musical discipline of her father, a man of blazonry, though not in the now heraldic sense, and who made much noise at the time, without being all famous. His , name was Snow, and his office was that of State-trumpeter to the King. From, the harpsichord to which he would have nailed his incomparably beautiful and impatient daughter, that impetuous incarnation of self will and brilliancy ran away to a friend, in whose house Baddeley was a lodger. She possessed nothing but her sixteen years, her dazzling beauty, and a heart all o' fire beneath the bosom of Snow. Baddeley met her on one day, looked tenderly at her the next, and wooed her with such ardour during the week, that at the end of it she fell into his arms, dissolved in a sho...
