Local and General News. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 17 March 1877

Local and General News. " . THE ^POLITICAL POSITION.-Judging by tho tolograin which appears in another piuco, tho House having refused to . grant Supplies, according to the Governor's reply to Mr. Robertson-that ho would grant a dissolution if Supplies were granted,-there is now ¡ no alterative for tho Government but to resign, and let Mr. Parkes form a Ministry, especially'as ho huB a majority of six members. Under these circumstances, thoro appears to bo but little hope of the Electoral Bill or anything else passing, and as 'tho present Parliament dies a natural death at the expiration of about seven months the sooner it- expires the butter, as' distrusted by its friends, and disliked by. its onemies, it appears powerless to do good either to itself or, the Colony. Since the above was in type it wiU be seen that the Ministry have re- signed, and that a new one is being-formed. . MR. P.

The Influence of Music. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 17 March 1877

The Influence of Music. THERE ia a great deal of heulthful and innocent pleasure to be derived from amusements of various kinds. One cannot be' always working, eating, and sleeping. There must "be time for relaxation-time for pleasures-time for bodily exercise. There is a profound meaning ' in the word Amusement ; much' more than most people aro disposed to admit. In fact, amusement is an important part of education. It is a mistake to suppose that the'boy or the man who plays at some outdoor game is wasting his time. Amusement of any kind is not wasting time, but economizing life. Relax ! and exercise frequently if you would enjoy good health. If you do not relax and take no exercise, the results will soon appear in bodily ailments, which always accompany . sedentary occupations. "The students" 'Says '.Lord 'Derby, "who think they have not 'time: for bodily exercise will sooner or later find time for illness." I * There aro .people in the .world who would, if they had the - power, ...

The Northern Star. Lismore, March 17, 1877. THE BIG SCRUB. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 17 March 1877

Lismore, March 17, 1877 THE BIG SCRUB. FOR some years past, the fertility of the soil, and the salubrity of the climate in what is variously known as the Big Scrub, Brush, or Moun- tain, has been extolled by the Press and those persons who have visited Lismore and its vicinity either upon   business, or pleasure; and these   praises have been well deserved, as we question if a similar extent of   rich well-watered land, suitable for both temperate and semi-tropical   cultivation, could be found in one block on any other of the Austra- lian rivers. In our experience, the   only block of land approaching to it is the famed Darling Downs in the sister Colony, Queensland, which   Downs, thanks to progressive legisla- tion, is now the home of numerous well-to-do settlers; while the land- which would not grow a cabbage-   is now laughing out into harvests of     &nb...

Strange Phenomenon. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 24 March 1877

Strange Phenomenon. Ax old story has been recently revived by the burial of a native of Barbadoes in a vault which has a weird history. In the early part of the present century it was found that every time this vault was opened to receive a new inmate, the coffins previously deposited there were ina confused,"disordered state, having been apparently tossed from theil' places. Each time that tho vault was opened the coffins were replaced in their proper situation-that is, three on- the ground, side by side, and the others lay on them. The vault was regularly closed ; the door", a massive stone, which required six or seven men to move, was cemented by masons, and though the floor was of sand there were no marks of footsteps or water. Once again the vault was opened, and the coffins were found thrown confusedly about the vault some with their heads down, and others up. " What could have occasioned this phenom- enon 1 In no other vault in tho island had this ever occurred. Was it an ear...

In the.boxes were the strongest and deadliest snakes in India : pythons, ophiophogi, cobras, kori tes, Russell snakes, and many othors. Tho Hindoos who had charge of thom were two slim, wiry, little men, nude to the ' waist, as most of then," countrymen are. They wore neither gloves nor. had any other protection, and had no instrument of any kind in - the' place. After showing the varied collection under their care, they proceeded to open the python cage, and one of them, putting his head in seized a monster:serpent and threw him lipou the floor close to our feet.

Trip to tho Richmond and Bruns- wick Rivers. FRIDAY morning, after a stretch Cn A. soft plank with au aching head, we looked for the horses. Here, (at the Brunswick) we noticed ono of the large schooners getting underway. Mrs. Ross, wlio had listened to many a story ahoitt " taking bare," and often Witnessing the operation, remarked that if the schooner went down to the bar with that air, not sufficient to fill the sails, it would not steer over the rollers. Although I arri nd sailor I could see the force of the observation, more so as it had a charitable flavour. On the schooner Went at thc rate of about half a knot an hour; into the rollers she gets, steering and heaving about with flopping sails. Ebb tide now and a little wind from the southward, she has hopes of getting clear out. But strange to say in the face of all smiles she let go the anchor, which caused her to point to the southward, The wind freshens nicely, but this nice schooner has to drag her anchor and look at it in...

^#>*4Vreck of the Barque Peony. THE following particulars of tho disastrous wreck of tho barque Peony, belonging to Newcastle, have been furnished us by one of the survivors : The barque Peony, owned by Mr. J, C. Ellis, and commanded by Captain Kirby, left Newcastle harbour on Thursday, 1st March, bound for Cheefoo, with a cargo of "530 tons of coal. All went well for the first two days of the passage, but on Saturday, 3rd instant, after the pumps had been worked a short time, the port pump choked. It was lifted and an attempt made to clear it, but, the breedo freshening, it had to be left. The starboard pump was then tried, but it would not work at all, Tho well was sounded and the vessel proved to be making water . fast. The bilge-pumps were then brought into requisition, but the water entered faster than it could be ejected. When off the Richmond on Tuesday, the captain decided to run for Brisbane to repair, and waa making for that port, but the water hi the hold increasing al...
