SINGULAR PHENOMENON IN THE THAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 3 May 1878

SI:NGULAR PILTENOIENON TN TIE TIL3MES. Notwithstanding that the tide in the Thames ran up rapidly until 3 o'clock on 8th March, when it was within a few inches of inundating the southern banks of the Thames, it suddenly ceased to flow, to the astonishment of those who had assembled on the bridges and embankments. Such a phe nomenon in the Thames has not been known for many years. The water began to recede shortly after 3 o'clock, being one hour and a half before the registered time of high water mark at London Bridge. At 2 o'clock the tide was registered by a chronometer at St. Paul's Wharf as flowing at the rate of three knots per hour, being then Din. below Trinity high-water mark. At 3 o'clock it had risen 2ft. more, when the tide all at once ceased to flow, and remained stationary un til a quarter-past 3 o'clock, when it suddenly fell 4in., and remained at that height until 4 o'clock. The expected overflow of the T hames caused considerable excitement.

SELECT POETRY. THE DREAMLAND SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 3 May 1878

SELECT POETRY. i THE DREAMLA.ND- SEA. What matter though my pilgrim feet MIaynever press the stranger'sland, Or wander lone while wild waves beat With ceaseless moan on ocean's strand? For me expands a lovelier deep, Whose isles in visioned beauty sleep, And never ocean waves could be So bright as thine, fair Dreamland Sea. My castle crowns the boldest steep, By warring winds and waters scarred, That seaward leans, and o'er the deep Keeps evermore unceasing ward. Full-freighted with their wings of snow The white ships come, the white ships go, While in the shade of cliff and towers I dream away the gliding hours. With manes foam-flecked and tossing free, The waves, wild coursers of the sea, Race swiftly to the level strand, And struggling die upon the sand. The sheals that sparkle at my feet Strange tales of wind and wave report, The weird romance, the mystery Of thedark caverns of the sea. My fairy fleet that long haslain Close moored in some enchanted bay, Borne by fair gales acro...

BREACH OF PROMISE CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 3 May 1878

BREACII OF PROOMISE CASE. 'The Armidale oorrespondent of the Syd ne/ Mhorning Herald states that a young lady in Sydney has laid an action for breach of promise against a faithless young gen tleman in the New England district. The damages are modestly assessed at £10,000. Cynical bachelors will probably declare that there is not a woman in the colony who is, remarks the Echo, in herself worth £10,000. The young lady in question, however, must deem herself to be virtually priceless,for the £10,000 only represents the amount of da mage which she considers herself to have suffered from the unhandsome treatment she has received from her quondam swain. No doubt if the case comes to trial the court will be crowded with people anxious to see how much is left after £10,000 worth of love has been sacrificed on the altar of a faithless lover. If she is still pretty, robust and sprightly, we fear the jury will be found incredulous of the damage she is alleged to have received, and will give a ...

POVERTY AND WANT IN NEVADA. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 3 May 1878

POVER"TY AND WAANT IN NEVADA. Although in one week, not long since, two of the Nevada silver mines alone yielded 1,100,000 dollars worth of the precious metal, there is still a greater amount of poverty and distress in that part of America. The San Francisco Chronicle remarks :-The outside world, reading that the earth, yielding to industry and 'perseverance, had given up, such an immense sum in so short a time I would naturally conclude that such a country was a paradise for labouring men, and a Mecca for capital. But it's a myth, a hollow, ashen mockery; for to day there are from 2500 to 3000 men who walk the frozen streets of Virginia and Gold Iill seeking work, many of them homeless, ragged, and too often hungry. Yet this is the land of plenty !" The Chronicle goes on to state that the country is overrun with "great, strong, hearty, labor-seeking men, who, day after day, are seen tramping from mine to mine asking for work, and many watching and waiting with hungry, eager eyes fo...

AN EXTRAORDINARY ELECTRIC PHENOMENON. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 3 May 1878

AN EXTRAORDINARY E LECTRIC S PIIENOMIENON. An extraordinary electric phenomenon was o observed by the passengers and crew of the ship Yorkshire, which arrived from London on Saturday evening, and it appears almost miraculous that so little damage was doneto the ship, and that nobody was hilled. Cap tain O'Callaghan states that when in lat. 30 t deg. 20min. S., lon. 10deg. 30min. TV'. (ablout the meridian of Tristan D'Acunha), the wind being light from the N.W., the bar. 30"14, ther. 74, and the weather sultry, about 5p.m. a heavy thunderstorm came up from the S. W., with a perfect deluge of rain. After a second flash of lightning, thestorm gradually worked round by way of N. to N.E., and I then to east, when it disappeared. When thewind was between N.E. and E. the light 'ning was seen all round the ship in various shapes, while the thunder was terrific. At half-past 5p.m. a lurid flash of lightning was seen, nccompanied by an appalling crash, and what appeared to be large drops of l...

GLOSS ON SHIRT BOSOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 3 May 1878

GLOSS ON SHIRT BOSOMS. Take two ounces of line white gum-arabic powder, put in a pitcher and pour on it one pint of boiling water, cover it and let stand all night. In morning pour it carefully from the dregs into abottle; use one tablespoonful to a pint of starch, made in the usual man ner; use a polishing iron also. The Victorian Funeral Reform Associa tion is now fairly established, for it is said that 1600 members are already enrolled. A. sub-comnmitteo composed of both sexes I have proposed that the emblem of mourn ing for men shall be " a simple black band over the left arm, and black cloth band around the hat, in addition to the ordinary dress ;" while that for women shall be " a crape tippet or collarett, with a little dark trimming on the dress." These, if we mis take not, are the mourning emblems adopted by the older association at Adelaide. An other sub-committee has been appointed to consider the subject of cemetery abuses. The association solme time ago urged on Governm...

RAILWAY EXTENSION. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 3 May 1878

RAILVWAY EXTENSION. Mn C. E. Albrecht seeks to jog our memory as to the importance of tlhe question of railway extension. Our thoughts have never slumbered on the matter; indeed, it has never been off our mind, and our opinion ever was, and so is still, that the trump card for the prosperity of the district is a rail way, and the sooner it can be con structed the better . for all. The time" has now arrived when there should be never ending effort, and ceaseless agitation, until the desired object has. been obtained, and until the welcome sound of the railway whistle is heard from our doors. This cannot be obtained by idle discussion on whether freetradle or protection is best, or on what freetrade or protection really is, nor can it be done by frothy platform speeches uttered by stump orators at banquets and such like, who have not digested the subject, and whose words give an uncertain sound. The work requires to be undertaken in a determined spirit, and with a fixed resolve to car...

SHOCKING ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 3 May 1878

SHOCKING ACCIDENT. - An accident of a distressing nature occurred on Monday last, to Alice Booth, aged four years, daughter of Mr Booth of this town. It seems that while Mr Booth was proceeding to his work in the morning, according to a promise he often gave the child, he took her with him for about 2oo yards so that the child could walk back home. On her walk back she stopped to play with some other children, the object of their amusement being the remains of a fire left by some individuals who had camp- ed there the previous night. While pushing the burning pieces about the wind blew them into a blaze, setting the the unfortunate little girl's clothes on fire. Her screams soon brought as- sistance. Miss Booth her eldest sister was the first to reach her, who immedi- ately stripped off the burning clothes. The little sufferers right leg was sever- ly burned, and also a portion of the abdomen. For two or three days her   life was dispared of, but on making in- &...

THE UNITED STATES NAVY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 3 May 1878

THIE.UNITED STATES INAVY. Russia claims that the United States should participate in the approaching Euro pean Peace Congress, on the ground that America is a great maritime power. In the light of this statement the-following re marks of the Naval and Military Gazette will be interesting :--"Very instructive and almost pathetic is the annual report made by the Secretary of the United States Navy. It is a considerable document, not because there are any novelties to propose, for he states that he is not inclined `to favor the building of heavy armor-plated gun-bear ing vessels,' which are ' suited for little else than harbour defences,' but because about one-half of it is occupied by a political dis quisition as to the relations between a navy and the mercantile marine, and as to the decadence of the American shipping trade. What little is said about the navy proper may soon be told. It consists of 07 steam and 23 sailing vessels; 23 ironclads, two torpedo, one ferry, and 21 tug-boat...
