FATAL DUEL IN HUNGARY. Du. Rokenbek« and his seconds who wore concerned in the shooting of Couut Stephen Batthyany in a duel neat* Tcniesvar, in Hungary, on October 22, have been arrested. The causo of the duel seems to have been this :—Count Batthyany was married lust week in Wiesbaden to Missllona Schosbcrger de Fornya, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy banker in Buda-Pesth. Fritulein Scliosberger becamo ihc brido of the young Count most unwillingly. Last year she had met Dr. Julius Eosenberg, a rising solicitor at Pestli. He fell in love with her, and his feelings were fully reciprocated. The parents seemed inclined to favour the grow ing intimacy till Count Batthyany made his appearance, proposed to the young lady, and •was accepted by her parents. She, how ever, declared that she would marry no one but Dr. Bosenberg ; whereupon lier parents took her to Marienbad, where Count Batthyany, a few hours after their arrival, also made his appearance.

MISCELLANEOUS. A GENTLEMAN'S GENTLEMAN. The following anecdote is told of the eccen tric Lord Rcdcsdftlo. Early one morning he made his way to the mansion of the Earl of Luoan. Ho was dressed in sporting garb, for he was going to attend a rnco raecting, his hat was on awry, and a cigar was between his lips. Ho rang at the front door, und tho carl's best man—an exquisite of the first water—answered tho summons. " Is tho Earl at home ? •" " No, sir ! The Henri is not at omo," He mistook tho caller for a sporting nervaut, very likely seeking employment. " Do yon know if he lias gone to Windsor, my man ? " " No— I don't know hif'u 'as gone to Windsor. But I'll tell you what I do know. You'd be adoin' of yerself a vast deal o' credit liif you'd Jionly just go around to the sign o' tho Bell and- Crown hand fetch me a pot of 'alf-an'-'alf." " All right ; where's* your money?"

the ... B.OW BA L F B E E PRESS, and Mittaöono, Borbawang, ¿k» Kangaloon Advocate SATURDAY,'DECEMBEE 22, 1883. There appears to be ".two Riclimonds in the field "—two great officials in tbe Rail way Department, whose duties are not per« formed satisfactorily to themselves, or Agreeably to the public. We allude to the Commissioner, Mr. Goodcbap, and to Mr. Whitton, the Engineer-in-Chief for Rail ways. Both these officials are essential to the construction and management of our railways ; each has a .special merit of his own, not to be improved upon by any known person in our community. The commercial ability displayed by Mr. Goodcbap in the management of the traffic branch of his department has so "far been eminently suc cessful, and satisfactory to Parliament. Tbe skill, if not genius, thrown into the con> «fonction of the railways by Mr. Whitton lias met with the approbation of every engineer of eminence who has seen his work, and evoked from distinguished visi tors both surpris...
THE MAN WHO KNEW EVERYTHING. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 22 December 1883
THE MAN WHO KNKW fiVEllYTHING. A mighty knowinganan was Caleb Page, who kopt tlic grocery at the fork of the road near Woodchuck Creek, Scragg Hollow, in the vi lingo of Hornvill\ No occurrence had ever taken place, oí' all particulars of which Caleb did not possess a thorough knowledge in the minutest detail. All matters in the perspective were anticipated, discussed, itrrnnged, and satisfactorily disposed of by Caleb long before they took place. If a neighbour rushed into a store to communi cate what he believed to be a very recent piece of news he would have the conceit taken out of him by being told by Caleb that he " had heard it a week ago." Events of the past, present, and future, were all the same to him; his ubiquitious knowledge, grasped and covered them all—to him they were all " stale news." A small bet was made one evening between Si Stevens and Joe SUibbins. Si bet that Joe couldn't nonplus Caleb with any picce of intelligence, real or imaginary. Joe " took all such be...
GOOD ANEDOTE OF A DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 22 December 1883
GOOD ANE D OTE OP A DOG. I am it rial lover of animals, and l am always «lud to hear any anedote which redounds to their credit, if it be authentic, so I am quite disposed to bolieve what a gentleman told uie of his beautiful collie one day. I was stroking bis silky black-and-tan cont, ^nd admiring bis large, affectionato, intelligent eyes, at the sums timo reading llio name and address legibly engraved on his brazen collar, and by way of remark said : " Did this ever bring ' Scoti ' back to you ?" " Only last week," said my friend, '• I lost him somewhere in Piccadilly. You know how much I rush about iu liansom cabs, and ' Bcoti ' always goes with me—we tra vel many miles in a week together in this way—but on this occasion 1 was walking and missed him. Search was iu vain. The crowd was great, traffic drowned the sound of my whistle—and after waiting awhile, and looking everywhere, I returned to my suburban home without my com panion, sad and sorrowful, yet hoping that ho might find...
