Our Sydney weekly Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 10 March 1882

Our Sydney weekly Letter. FROM OUR. OWN CORRESPONDENT. Since my last letter events of a somewhat nature have been opened out and with the suddenness necessarily consequent on startling incidents have formed the food of public comment in every quarter. On Thursday lost a horrible discovery was made on Flagstaff Hill, which, as most of your readers are aware, is situate at Miller's Point, and on which the Sydney Observatory stands. It appeared that late on Wednesday night a woman with a little boy sought rest in the Flagstaff Reserve, and to all appearances was an outcast, with neither home nor habitation. Being seen by the police resting her head on a carpet bag, and suspected to be one of the wail's and strays who infest the parks and public resorts, she was ordered to move away. Later on, at about one o'clock on Thursday morning, she being still in the same spot, the officer on the beat threatened her with a night's lodging in the cells if she still con tinued to molest the enclosu...

Metropolitan Band Quadrille Party. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 17 March 1882

Metropolitan Band Quadrille Tarty. THE members of the above band gavo a quadrille party in the Temperntice HaU, lPeorith, 011 Friday evening last. There were not a great many present, owing no doubt to the fact that the "band did not avail them - selves of the local press.1 However, those that were present enjbyed themselves im mensely, and everything passed off merrily. Mr. GK Gosnel acted as M.O., and gob the dances all off in good time. The ladies all looked very nice, and indeed it would he a hard matter to. spot the belle, but we believe the honors were divided between a young lady dressed in white, who lives in Station street, and a young- lady from South Creek. We are given to understand that the mem bers of this excellent band intend holding quadrille parties monthly, if they get suffi cient encouragement, and if so, we have no doubt that a great many of the light fantas tic will avail themselves of the opportunity.

Vernon Harcourt, the Home Secretary, in reply, to the numerous addresses which have been presented to Her Majesty on the occasion of her-'recent escape from aHsassination. Her Majesty states that she is deeply touched by the outburst of loyalty and devotion from all classes of her people, and has been in a vast measure surprised by the sympathy expressed towards her by the Sovereigns and peop'es of foreign lands in her trying- position. Her Majesty expresses her heartiest thanks to all, from the highest to the humblest, and says that she will continue unceasingly in her efforts to.secure the happiness of her subjects, and to uphold the honour and g'lory of her dear countiy.

Our Sydney weekly Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 17 March 1882

j Our Sydney weekly Letter. THE now famous regulation, limiting press ?megsages'to SOO.words before ten o'clock at night sti'l cdmes in for a large measure of adverse comment, witli regard to country stations which contribute . to metropolitan centres nightly .their little quota of news, the regulations would appear to work exceedingly harshly. For instance, most of them close early, and Jn the event of a long, message, say of 1500 or 2000 words being lodged at ten o'clock in the evening, the: operator can. sand only 500 of that number, and is, in con- j sequence, oorapelled to wait until ten o'clock I before sending off the balance. It is con fidently expected that some parliamentary interference will remedy the end so justly complained of by the press. The small-pox scourge would appear to be thoroughly stamped out, the daily medical ^reports containing no. indications of a re newal of the state of things which threatened to stagnate the trade of the city, and, of coui'se, to some...

Life in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 17 March 1882

Life in Sydney. Two showily-dressed young women named Mary Ann "Wilson and Emily M'Carty, were two nights ago fight ing in Pitt-street like a couple of Kil kenny cats. The admonition of the police not being sufficient to stop what seemed to a large crowd of spec tators to be excellent sport, the con stable took them into custody. They were afterwards liberated. This morning, at the Central Police Court, these two ladies were called, but Mary Annie failed to appear. Emily, however, came up smiling, and in con sideration of the fact that she was not the aggressor, she was only fined 10s, but the absent Mary Anne was ordered to pay 40s and costs, or in default seven days' imprisonment.

Trip to the Nepean Basin. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 17 March 1882

Trip-to the ITopoan Basin. From a Correspondent, Tiie lively little town of Penrith presented a very gay appearance on the 8th instant, as ..Messrs. Price, Bobbins, ancl M'Lachlan's drag pulled up at Lennox's to augment their force with Messrs. J, S. Morton and Stanton. The party then proceeded to the . Nepean to sail for a few days' sporting;*. The landing was left 1 at eight o'clock, Messrs. Price and Bobbins took the first, heat and arrived at Mr. Lennox's farm on t!i 6 banks of the Nepean at half-past. Stanton and Morton took the next turn and the boat travelled until ihey came among the hills and the wallabies began to show when Bobbins succeeded in bringing one to earth. 'The next unfortunate bagged was a magni ficent iguana of unusual size. The follow ing few miles were uneventful till a flock of black duclc appeared and the company gave them the contents of their breech-loaders. . Six bit the earth.

A Ciyiag Evil. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 17 March 1882

A Ciyiag Evil. BY CYNIC. MY name is Gubbins. I venture to assert, without tear of contradiction, that .' Gubbins" is an uncommon name; there are to my knowledge no Gubbixises in this town. X am a new-no, not a new-I think I . should say a newly-married man. To ex plain my meaning, I was married about twelve calendar months ago to the present Mrs. Gubbins, but it has been my irretrievable happiness to have been joined in holy wed lock with two previous Mrs. Gubbinses-a Miss and a widow respectively. With the " Miss " I lived happily until an unlucky boating affair-a squall off Garden Island, you know-brought her earthly career to a watery close, and I wrapped my arm in crape. I may mention that I am a member of the " Funeral Reform j" this in stitution is a positive benefit to a man who has wives to bury. The second Mrs. G. was not altogether a success (viewed from a husband's standpoint). She was possessed with a desire to have her own way ; I objected to that (in her absence), but ...

Tha ''Timoi^iaryFlC-*""" An extrao^yjoi^Srcumstance, so singular i t^aWt^is only possible to hint at its char acter, has just occurred in connection with the publication of the Times. In the Monday morning's issue of that journal there was a full report, of the speech deli vered by Sir William Harcourt at Burton on the previous Saturday. In itself this was a long, able, and vigorous vindication of the conduct of the goverment since they had been in office,' and delivered as it was -'dzs/ink-~&\A_of^the Parlimentary session, it excited an unusuti-^<uiiount of public interest.
