GOSSIPING CORNER. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 28 February 1885

GOSSIPING CORNER. , The war path still retains the interest of citizens, but the exoitement of last week is; truly vanishing ; yes, even in the ranks of our brave volunteers. So muoh so that we have heard of cases of buying out and; even desertions from tbe ranks. I believe' four-fifths of the expedition are only going to see the world ; it is a desire to travel which prompts them. One can pardon single men for such an ambition, but mar-; ried men who are leaving four and five children behind and, in one instance, I am mm, a wue on a sick oea, can certainly have little or no love for their homes. Were it a case of war against Germany, France, or Russia it would have a different aspect,, but to send our men away —some of the best hone and sinew of our sunny land— to fight with Arabs, who are only struggling for their own freedom, is, to say the least of it, impolitic. Would it not be better, Mr. Editor, for the Colonies to subscribe say, half a million for the equipment of a foroe in...

Fire Brigade Entertainment. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 28 February 1885

Fire Brigade Entertainment. j An ethiopian entertainment took place at the Temperance Hall, Montague-street, on ! Wednesday evening. It was announced to be 1 given for .the : benefit of the Balmain Fire Brigade, and that that institution has the sym pathy of the inhabitants of Balmain, was amply proved by the large attendance and the .enthusiastic reception accordedtb the perfor mers. Host of the solos were very well given, but the parts in tbe choruses got a* little mixed —a fault easily pardoned in an amateur perfor mance, where many rehearsals are out of the question.

There is hardly a child among .us who is not familiar with the phrase 'the fortunes of war,' by which we imply . . .not,, absolutely fortunes, but uncertain ties, misfortunes as well, as fortunes.

Current Items. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 7 March 1885

Current items We would direot the attention of the authorities to a slight mis take in the gratings over tho underground pipes at the foot of the Mort-street concrete drains. After a heavy shower of rain it is quite common to see the gutters overflowing and the water surrounding the ferry waiting loom. On Saturday last it was par ticularly noticeable and resulted in many ladies and gentlemen getting wet feet before they could enter the waiting room to get out of tho rain. ' The cause of the flooding appears to us to be want of more space between the grating bais; they are now too close together, and a very small quantity of refuse coming ! down the large gutters chokes them, with the result stated. It would also be an improvement to fix the gratings at a greater angle than they are at present. For the comfort of passengers by the ferry, we hope the Council will attend to the matter, or, if the street has not yet been handed over by the Dock Com pany, we feel sure they will, with the...
