THE INTERCOLONIAL CRICKET-MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 13 March 1875
THE INTERCOLONIAL CRICKET-MATCH. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) Foe years past no contest in the cricket-field be tween picked representatives of New South Wales and Victoria has created greater interest than the match which was commenced yesterday at the Albert Ground. So many defeats have been scored against us since 1866, both in our own cricket arena, ana at aieioourne, mat a victory tor .our opponents has always been looked upon as a foregone conclusion. To the credit of the cricket ing public, however, be it said that they have as a rule liberally patronised each contest when it came to the turn of the Victorians to visit Sydney. The recent victory of the New South Wales team in Melbonrne was anticipated by few, but the pertinacity of our representatives was at length rewarded, and to the satisfactory result of that event is to be attributed the excitement as to the present contest. The heavy and continuous rain which fell up to last Monday night boded ill for the success o...

THE PASSION FOR DRINK. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 20 March 1875
THE PASSION FOK DRINK. Some extraordinary instances of the insatiate desire, or rather morbid impulse, to drink are mentioned in a paper on ' The Insanity of In ebriety,' by Dr. George Burr, published in the Neio York Pshychologiml and Medico-Legal Journal of December, 1874 : — Dr. Bush records a case in which he says, in reference to an habitual drunkard in Philadel phia, who, when strongly urged by one of his friends to leave off drinking, replied, ' Were a keg of rum in one corner of a room, and were a cannon constantly discharging balls between me and it, I could not refrain from passing before that cannon in order to get at (he rum.' One of the cases described by M'Neish in his ' Anatomy of Drunkenness,' as quoted by Dr. Ray, also illustrates this feature. A friend of the subject of it painted to him ' the distresses of his family, the loss of his business and character, and the ruin of his health,' to which he replied, ' My good friend, your remarks are just ; they are indeed ...

EUROPEAN MAIL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 20 March 1875
EUROPEAN MAIL NEWS. Germany. — The Landsturm Bill has been read , a second time inthe.German Parliament. The Imperial Bill for tiie civil registration of births, marriages, and deaths will be shortly introduced. It' will be remembered that a Bill bearing a similar title was passed by tbe Parliament in 1874, and thrown out by the Federal Council, owing to certain imperfections in the details of the scheme. The new measure is far more comprehensive and tlioroughg-oijj^- than its predecessor, for whereas the latter was only partially applicable, those States which wero' already in possession of an analogous system of civil registration being exempted from many of its provisions, the pre sent is, strickly speaking, a measure of unity, being applicable alike throughout the length and breadth of the German Empire. We gather from official statements that in 1876 Germany will be able to bring into the field at any point of her frontier, on 12 days' notice, no less than 16 com plete corps (F...
No title [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 20 March 1875
The demand for an amendment of the land laws is increasing, and the desire for a consi derable modification of some of its provisions is sufficiently apparent to secure the attention and invite the comments of all who aspire to .the public suffrage. It may be readily imagined that until the vacancy caused by the untimely death of the Hon. W. M. Arnold, Mr. Marshall Burdekin, whose nomination for the Paterson has been announced, had paid but little attention to a question of which a Sydney resident can scarcely appreciate the importance ; at the hustings, however, he found it impossible to ignore the subject, and the few platitudes to which he ventured to give utterance scarcely conceal his ignorance of the difficult questions which our Legislature must attempt to solve in an amended Land Act. Confessing his political attachment to the present Government, and his adoption of the Premier's land policy, Mr. Burdekin seems inclined to deny that the Alienation Act has failed to produce t...

EGGS IN WINTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 20 March 1875
EGGS .p WINTER. '.- If the true value. of eggs were better understood in this country,- we are satisfied more attention would be paid to-tlieir production. The French and Germans far excel us in their, care of poultry. A Frenchman makes his breakfast of a couple of boiled eggs, a roll, and a cup of coffee, and a letter breakfast' a king ought not to have. The French farmers, after supplying ttie tremendous home consumption, export to England from sixty to seventy millions eggs annually, and the English pay France some 500,000 dollars yearly for this one product. Belgium also has a handsome income from England for eggs. All over Europe and Asia eggs are much more a leading article of food than with us. At our best hotels, of course, they are to be found on the table at all seasons of the year, but in private families, and especially in farmers' families, from November to March, most of the eggs consumed are in the form of cakes and puddings, and the housewife is grateful if she can g...
