THE STORY-TELLER. THE GREEK MAID. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 January 1868

THE STORY-TELLER. THE GREEK MiAID. CHAPTER I. It m as about four o'clock in the after noon of a fine summer's day, that a party of fishermen and country girls were as sembleld round the door of a cottage on the beach of the little bay of Pietro Romana, on the western coast of the Island of Corfu. The fishermen, or rather boatmen, were indulging in a light wine called Capra, having just finished the arduous task of launching a large boat, and preparing her masts, sails, and oars, for an evening excursion. The girls car ried baskets filled with grapes, melons, and pomegranates, and they all seemed to be expecting with impatience the arri val of purchasers for their fruit, their frequent glances towards the neighbou - ing hill, shewing that the direction in which they were expected to come, was not unknown to them. " What have you to give a friend to day, Nina ?" said a hsndsome young boatman; the sun is hot and high." "Nothing, Signor Pippo; your thirst is scarcely worth quenching, in...

IN Missouri lately] a judge had before him his own application for a divorce. After hearing testimony enough to satisfy him, he granted the application. Two "ladies" were having some words to gether on the roadside when the daughter of one of them popped her head out of the door and cried out, "Be quick, mother, and call her a thief before she calls you one." MASSACHUSETTS journals relate, as an inci dent of Mr. George Peabody's early life, that he once arrived late at night, on foot, at the Stickney Tavern, in Concord, New Hamp shire. Having no money he went supperless to bed, and the next morning stopped and sawed wood to pay for his lodging and (break fast. HIR AT LAw.-A woman in Chicago, on visiting her husband's office and discovering long hairs in his hair-brush, has sued for a divorce. A YEAR or two ago, a northern paper, a cen tury old, was reprinted; and it fell into the hands of a couple, who, seeing in it an adver tisement for a man and his wife as butler and housekeeper,...

To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 January 1868

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, I read some weeks ago in the columns of your paper a letter signed " Cantab." The writer of it evidently a churchman, proposed to form an association in connection with the Church of England, and as a test of his sincerity in the de nominational view he takes of the subject pro poses to open the subscription list with a cheque for £150. I have observed other communications in the columns of a contemporary journal putting for. wardthe claims of the illtreated Aborigines, but without any proposal to effect what is so easy to express, but so difficult practically to carry out. In Wednesday's Inquirer, I observed a letter fromthe Rev. J. M. Innes. A comment upon the contents of which will I think place the oh ject which both Cantab and the Reverend Gen tlemen would wish to see effectively worked out clearly before our readers. It is pleasing to learn from all quarters a flat contradiction of what has been asserted in higher quarters that men " our breth...

NATIVE MISSIONS. To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 January 1868

NATIVE MISSIONS. To the Editor of Te Herald. SIR, Your paper has directed the public attention afresh to this. deeply interesting subject. Among the letters contributed to the discus sion, two of the most noteworthy are from the pen of the Rev. J. Innes, published in the columns of the Inquirer. I shall be obliged by your granting me room to make a few re marks upon the last of these, which appeared in the Inquirer of December 25th. The letter referred to, might have been much compressed without loss of matter. It would have had more readers and the impres sion left upon each reader's mind would have been more distinct. But it is ot more conse quence, that the statements made are loose and exaggerated, as where the aborigines of Western Australia are thus described as to numbers: "It must be borne in mind, that there are myriads (other than those in these Southern parts of the colony)'to whom &c." "The aborigines swarm in the North in im mense numbers." "How many thousands t...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 January 1868

WE hav~e observed in the London Jour nals the prospectusses of two companies, having for their object the continuous extension of Telegraphic communication .between Europe Asia and America. It is suffi.cient for our present purpose to accept not only the completion but the com pleteness of such schemes, and that they are not only tobe paid for out of British Capital but conducted by Britsh Direc tors, Our duty as local Journalists is to consider how far, we shall be benefitted by the extension to the Australian Group of these gigantic enterprises, and whether the guarantee required from us (£4. 600) as an annual contribution towards securing a 6 per cent dividend will give us a fair equivalent. We have no desire to throw any damp upon such like propositions, but we must remark, that the extreme length of such a communication, depending upon the safe working of cables by sea, and tele graphs by land, with so many breaks, the one subject to the casualties of sub marine currents, the o...

THE NATIVE MISSION OF NEW NORCIA, VICTORIA PLAINS. (Communicated.) [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 January 1868

THE NATIVE MISSION OF NEW NOROIA, VICTORIA PLAINS. (Communicated.) The native mission of New Norcia, Victoria Plains, owes its foundation, chiefly, and its pre sent hopeful state, entirely, to the zeal, practi cal talent and unflinching persevernnce ofDr. Salvado, who'is now in Spain, exerting himself to establish there an institution destined to keep up for the future a supply of missionary laborers. The funds by which land and flocks and cattle and agricultural implements were purchased, at the outset of the mission, were in Sgreat part collected by him among his country Sman. He likewise enrolled the greater part of the men, who have volunteered to bid an eter nal farewell to their country and devote their life to the cause of the Australian Aborigines, It was not, however, until the year 1857, that he was allowed to have the management and control of that establishment, which dates from that period its gradual prosperity, in spite of not a few difficulties, and obstacles.

She came the bride. Of the brave young knight Sir Guy de Vare, My lay is rung, My song is sung. So gentle maidens - never despair ! LEO..

ORIGINAL POETRY. PAST—PRESENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 January 1868

ORIGINAL POETR Y. PAST-PRESENT. ---- While Youth and Beauty round diffuse. Their brilliant haze; we scarce refuse. To join the festive throng. A magic glass holds up to view The long perspective ever new Of pleasure's varying throng. As Time brings that perspective near The brilliant haze-will disappear, And show a prospect cold. The wither'd flower, the heartless joy, And all the nothings which employ Poor mortals, young and old. But still amidst the changeful scene, Some fragrant blossoms we may glean, Some gems may sparkle bright;   Affection's soft and beaming ray, And Friendship open as the day. Shed no delusive light. May it be ours-this light to share While life and thought and being are Our portion here below. For soon shall time pass quite away, Gone shall be blossom, gem, and ray Absorb'd in Heaven's bright glow. - LEO.

Holloway's Ointment and Pills.-Throat Affec tions.-In all cases ofrelaxed, inflamed, and ulcerated throats, safety may always be secured by rubbing Holloway's Ointment upon the glands under the lower jaw. Its curative powers may be accepted without doubt or dis, trust. In Diptheria the most marked success has attended its use, in cases where the disease threatned to run a fatal course in spite of the ordinary treatment. The application of Hollo way's Ointment fits it well for childrens ail ments, where internal medicines can with difficulty be administered. When Pills cannot be swallowed without pain, they should be reduced to a powder, and used cjnjointly with the Ointment, whose cooling soothing, and healing action they augment by their purifying powers. DR. J. COLLIS BJOWNE.S CHLORO0 NE Vice-Chancellor Sir W. Page Wood stated publiclyin Court, that Dr. J.

TAXATION IN THE COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 11 January 1868

TAXATION IN THE COLONIES. As regards the amount of taxation paip through the colonies the rate during 1865-6 was 30s. per head ; in New South Wales, 40s. per head; in Victoria, 32s. per head; and in Queensland 76s. per head. Then in the mat ter of the bonded debt the comparison is still more stricking. South Australia with a popu lation of 165,934 souls, owed at the close of 1866 £751,600, or £4 10s. per head ; whilst for the other colonies the returns were as fol lows :-New South Wales - Population, 421,000; debt, £5,638,530, or £13 8s. per head. Victoria-Population, 632,998 ; debt, £8,733,445, or £1316s. perhead; and Queens land-Population, 95, 100 ; debt, £3,021,186, or £31, 15s. per head. These figures show that' if ever there was.a colony that ought to prosper, South Australia is the one. It is not taxed to anything like half the extent of the young colony of Queensland, and if the Go vernment borrowed three-quarters of a mil lion more money to-morrow they would still owe a mil...
