Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 15 May 1869

The St. Louis llepublieau, of 1 Stli Janu ary, contains an interesting but somewhat problematical account of the exploration by the local Academy of Scieuco nnd Historical Society, of the remarkable tunnel which ha3 just been discovered under the bed of the Mi6sissipi. The main passage, partly hewn out of the solid rock and partly constructed of arched masonry, is about twenty feet high by eighteen wide; and the bottom of it is worn by carriage wheels. There are also lateral passages about eight ieet high and sis feet wide. These lead to chambers covered with closely fitting slabs, bearing inscriptions in the cuniform character; and in one was found a magnificent group of sculpture, representing captives following a conqueror's chariot. All the carvings are said to bear a stroDg resemblance to those brought by Mr Layard from Nineveh, and the date assigned to them by the erchaiologist of St. Louis is the middle of the century immediately pre ceding the birth of Christ. It is believed...

- "What is the difference between a rhungry man and a glutton?—One longs to eat, and " the"other eats too long. A handsome young widow applied to a ; physician to relieve her of three distressing complaints with which she was affected. "In the first place," said she, "I have little or no appetite. What shall I take for that?" "For that, madam, you should take air and exer cise." "And, doctor, I am quite fidgety at night time, and afraid to be alone. What shall I take for that ?" For that, madam, I can only recommend a husband." "Fie! doctor. But I have the blues terribly. What shall I take for that ?" "For that, madam, you have, besides taking air and a husband, to take the newspapers."

The obange in.the condition of the local flocks and herds is already marvellous.

ITEMS BY THE ENGLISH MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 19 May 1869

ITEMS BY THE ENGLISH MAIL. In a leading article of March 11, the Daily News remarks:—" The readers of our adver tising1 columns will have noticed that within the last few weeks two strong companies have started for the purpose of opening submarine telegraphic communication with our Indian Empire and Australian colonies, which shall be in English hands from end to end—a laudable object certainly, and one which we confess we should have been glad to see the Government undertake itself, as a natural supplement to the purchase of the home lines. The Government, however, has left the under taking to private enterprise, and the result is the two companies in question, which we will call for shortness ' thj British Indian' and the * Direct Indian' Companies. The public, while glad to see that this most necessary work is now certain to be done, and done well, will doubtless ask, in the first place, why two componies ? Is not this a repetition of the old system of reckless and needless compe...

FATAL MISTAKE AT A HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 19 May 1869

FATAL MISTAKE AT A HOSPITAL. A man named George Leo, from the Baokland, who was admitted into the Beeohworth District Hospital on Tuesday with a broken collar bone and a contusion of the knee, died this morn ing, at twenty-five minutes past one o'olock, death being oaused by a mistake of some one of the wardBmen. He was ordered a blaok draught last evening, bnt O'Brien, who aots as dispenser, was unfortunately in bed sick. The aooount of the affair is rather confused, bnt a ward»man named James Durner got the medicine for Lea from the dispensary, and placed it in a bottle which was undoubtedly labelled " blaok draught," but contained laudanum" Over two ounces of this poison—enough to kill four strong men—was then administered by a third wards- i man, ffm. Carroll, to Lea. Carroll then went to the next patient, a man named Sutherland, from Porepunka, to give him a similar dose. Suther land, however, before he put the dose to his moutb, perceived by the smell that it wbb very differen...
