COLLISION AND LOSS OF LIFE AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 March 1879

COLLISION AND LOSS OF LIFE AT SEA. Another very painful coasting disaster has to be added to the already long black list. The Barrabool (s.), which arrived in Port Jackson yesterday, morning from Newcastle, brought the extremely sad intelligence that the Bonnie Dundee, a steamer of 131 tons burden, owned bv Messrs. G. and B. Nicliol, aud chartered by the Manning River Co., had been -run into, aud had sunk within four minutes, four ladies aud a boy falling victims to the occur rence. The collision took place about 8 o'clock on Monday evening, when the moon was shining brightly, and when both vessels were carrying side and mast head lights, aud had descried each other some time previously, and it is almost impossible to understand how the accident could have hap pened. This, however, is a matter that the Marine Board will have to determine. From the information which we have been enabled to gather, it would seem that the Barabool struck the Bonnie Dundee almost right amid ships on the...

TWENTY MILES ON SKATES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 March 1879

TWENTY MILES ON SKATES, i A slight inclination to 0119 side, a gentle push from the left foot, and the outer edge of the right skate holds the smooth ice as if travelling in a groove. Swiftly slipping forward and outward, the bodv slowly revolves till the face is turned away from the course. Then the skater resumes the upright position, bends as slightly to the left ns before to the right, and in tin instant, witli scarcely perceptible efiort, glides to the left side of liis line of direction. There should be 110 jerk, 110 Apparent energy ; the skater should simply shift himself from one foot to the other — a mere transition of weight. Tlie inclination of the body should be the least possible. Lift tlie skate but just above tlie ice, and put the other down as softly as if treading 011 velvet : let there be 110 stamp of the foot, 110 blow against tlie ice. The perfection of the outer edge is the absence of effort ; it is motion in repose. The facility of falling which unnerves the ty...

SALES OF THOROUGHBRED STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 March 1879

SALES OF THOROUGHBRED STOCK. A sale of brood mares, racehorses, year lings, and other thoroughbred stock, was held on Monday afternoon, in the large yard at the rear of the Pastoral hotel, Flemingtou, when there was but a limited attendance of purchasers, and, in the majority of cases, the prices realised were ridiculously small. The balance of Mr. Brown's stud was the first submitted, and the highest-priced animaf was Perth, a brown filly by Panic from Myth, and who is thus full sister to those celebrities, Melbourne and Adelaide, and she was knocked down to Mr. A Miller for 95 guineas — a sum far below her value. Mr. F. Williams's stud was then submitted, and Mr. H. Phillipps, of the Bryan O'Lynn stud secured Rose de Florence, the dam of Maribyrnong, King of the Ring, Ferryman, and othtr celebrities, with a colt foal at foot by Angler, for only 250 guineas.

THE OLD MINISTER AND THE TAVERNKEEPER'S PRETTY WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 March 1879

THE OLD MINISTER AND THE TAVERNKEEPEK'S PRETTY WIFE. Two Methodist clergymen were riding to the district conference through a re tired portion of Canada. One was a venerable brother, the other a vouug man just installed in the work of the gospel. As they passed an old cross roads tavern, the elder brother pointed toward it with liis whip, and said, ' Many and many a day I've been at that tavern, and a mighty handsome wife the keeper had, too. She was one of the handsomest women I ever saw ; young, pretty, plump, fine colour, and such arms. Many aud many a kiss have I given her when we were sitting in a big haircloth chair in the little private sitting-room oft' the bar. Well, well, time flies' — and the good old man gazed iit his companion, whose eyes were as large as soup-plates, then, blush ing of a deep beet-red, he said, with some confusion — ' Bless me, what have I been saying ! Of course, brother, you will not breathe a word of this ; I cannot imagine how I came to say any thi...

THE EVIL EYE IN SCOTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 March 1879

THE EVIL EYE IN SCOTLAND. 1 I have quite a vivid remembrance of being myself believed to be the un happy .victim of au evil eye. I had taken what was called a ' dwining,' which bafHed all ordinary experience : aud, therefore, it was surmised that I had got ' a blink of an ill e'e.' To re move this evil influence, I was sub jected to the following operation, which was prescribed and superintended by a neighbour ' skilly ' ill such matters : — A sixpence was borrowed from a neigh bour, a. good fire was kept burning in the grate, the door was locked, and I was placed upon a chair iu front of the fire. The operator, an old woman, took a tablespoon and filled it with' water. With the sixpence she then lifted as much salt as it would carry, and both were put into the water in the .spoon. The water was then stirred with the forefinger till the salt had dissolved. Thfen the soles of my feet and the palms of my haudB were bathed with this solution thrice, and, after these bathings, I ? was m...

BUSHRANGERS AND BUSHRANGING; OR, AN OLD TALE RETOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 March 1879

BUSHRANGERS * AND BUSH-j RANGING ; OR, AN OLD TALE RETOLD. At the present time, when a large por tion of this- -colony is being kept in a state' :of constant excitement by the now notorious Kelly gang, an excite ment participated in, doubtless, to a certain extent, by the inhabitants of the other colonies, it may not be malapropos to recal a case which' occurred some seventy years ago, in the sister colony of New South Wales. At tliat time Victoria was in esse, and the population of Sydney 'consisted -.only of ; two classes, free and bond, the former being much in the minority. Just at this period a vessel with convicts arrived from Eng land, having for one of its forced passengers a young man named Dona hue.. Born in Dublin, and early thrown on the world an oiyhan, he had gradu ated in crime, from a pickpocket up wards, till a burglary in which he was concerned Tesulted in a sentence of transportation for life.

THE ALIENATION OF THE LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 March 1879

The Alienation of the Lands. No one will maintain for a moment | that it is not desiiable to alienate the public lands of a State to bona fule cultivators and producers, tho quicker such an alienation takes place the better, but it is equally essential to the com monwealth that the proceeds of that alienation should not be fritted away 111 unproductive works, and that it should be expended on improving the face of the country, facilitating inter course, advancing education, and im proving the rivers and ports of the colony. These advantages once secured crime would decrease, a higher state of morality would prevail, and the enormous cost of our criminal popula tion would be. diminished. When the United States of America first com menced to lay the foundations of the great nation she has since become, rigid economy in public expenditure was the order of the day, and up to the present she sets an example of economy in that respect to every other country in the world. The salary of her...

SIBERIAN CONVICTS IN RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 March 1879

SIBERIAN CONVICTS IN RUSSIA. It would appear that, as, on the one hand, it does not need a crime of very gross proportions to send a uian into exile, so, on the other, the prospect of Siberia is not looked upon by some with that horror with winch it is re garded in England. For instance, a prisoner iu Finland once told me that rather than work as a felon in the streets of the town where his parents lived for the three years for which he had been condemned, he had asked to be allowed to go to Siberia ! ? The in troduction of railroads and steamers has made the jouruey to this almost unknown land much less tedious than it used to be ; though even now it is . sufficiently long. Two months, I was told, it now takes to get them to Irkutsk; but a woman in a Finnish prison, who had escaped and been re captured, told me that eighteen years ago she was eight months going from St. Petersburg to Tobolsk, and that she had taken three years getting back ; not, she said, that she was particularly...

EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 March 1879

Education. But although we heartily approve of the appointment of a Minister of Edu cation, having full control of the system, and directly responsible to Parliament for its proper administration we do not think the proposed amendment of the law sufficient. The proposal Is good so far as it goes ; but it does not go far enough. We arc inclined to believe with Sir Henry Partes that a more comprehensive system of State educa tion is the proper direction in which change should be initiated. A new bill is what is wanted. We venture to think that a very largo section of the community believe that the suggestion is a wise 0110, and hope that Sir Henry Partes will give practical effect to his opinion by bringing in a Bill next session, the leading principles of which shall bo compulsory, secular and free. As wc have said before, it is to be re gretted that the debate was abruptly cut short. But we hope that an early opportunity will be taken of reviving it —not because the object of the pr...

ALCOHOL. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 March 1879

ALCOHOL. At a recent meeting of the East Kent district of the South-Eastern Branch of the British Medical Association, Dr. Parsons, of Dover, read a paper on alcohol. It was his opinion, founded on the experiments of Anstie and others, that alcohol can support life even when little or nothing else is taken ; and that, although it cannot be considered as capable pf being utilised for the actual construction of tissue, yet that it is capable of developing force and energy just as ordinary food. Dr. Parsons made some allusions to the late Dr. Todd, and deprecated the injustice of attributing to that physician the inculcation of the doctrine of excessive stimulation iu the treatment of all patients indiscriminately. He stated that Dr. Todd taught that alcohol was a valuable medicine in acute cases generally, and especially iu those where exhaustion and disintegration of tissue were prominent characteristics; but that he did not usually prescribe alcohol in chronic disease, and did not a...

EXTRAORDINARY ARREST IN MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 March 1879

EXTRAORDINARY ARREST IN MELBOURNE. An extraordinary result following the arrest of a woman (says the Telegraph) transpired 011 Saturday afternoon last, by which the proceeds of several rob beries, dating as far back as the year 1874, were recovered. Just prior to the steamship Otway leaving the South Wharf for Adelaide, detectives Duncan and O'Donnell, who were ou duty on the steamer, observed a woman who by her movements was evidently attempt ing to pick the pockets of the lady passengers, several of whom, upon being spoken to by the officers, admitted that the woman referred to had pushed her self against them, evidently with the idea of ascertaining where they kept their purses. Detective Duncan ques tioned the female as to her business 011 the boat, when she admitted that she was not an intending passenger ; but at the same time she positively refused to go ashore. At the request of Captain Chapman, the detectives bundled the woman ashore, when she became very passionate and abu...

A VALUABLE DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 March 1879

A VALUABLE DISCOVERY. While experimenting at the farm we have hit upon a cheap plan of manu facturing superphosphate of lime, which not only saves a large outlay each year, but converts a lot of heretofore useless and unsightly trash — such as dead animals, bones, offal, &c. — into one ot the best fertilizers known. The plan we adopted is as follows :? — Take a large cask, put 200 lb. of water in it, than add, slowly and cautiously, one-half this amount of pure sulphuric acid, and great care and dili gence must bo used in handling this acid, not to let it touch the skin or clothing, as it will instantly blacken the skin and destroy the clothing, wherever it comes in contact, and when the two elements (water and sulphuric acid) meet there is what is called a chemical affinity, aud a very intense heat is there by engendered. When you have this mixture, throw in the same number of pounds of bones as you have of water, or twice the number that you have of the acid Keep those pro...

Life-Lengthening Invigorant. — It is universally believed in Switzerland, that the popular national tonic ' Rosee des Alpes,' or 'Dew of the Alps,' lengthens the lives of those who use it habitually. Certainly a more pleasant way of accomplishing this desirable object could not be conceived, for of all the cordials we have ever tasted, ' Dew of the Alps' is the most agreeable and refreshing. That it invigorates the digestion, creates appetite, increases, muscular vigour, and protects the body against unwholesome atmospheric in fluences, is uot to be denied. ' In this regard tlie experience of our own people confirms the statements of the Swiss themselves, and hence it is in great request, not only in all our towns and cities, biit in the pastoral districts and at the- mines.

QUAINT CHRISTMAS CUSTOM. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 March 1879

QUAINT CHRISTMAS CUSTOM. Oxe of the quaintest customs connected with Christmas stilll survives in South Wales. It is, perhaps, .little more than an unusual form of that method of breaking the silence of the night com monly known as Christmas carnllinor ? but instead of going out into the road and singing a greater or fewer number of hymns, more or less out of tune, the Welsh people take unto themselves the skull of a horse. This they adom with many-coloured ribbons, and fasten it upon the head of one of the performers, whose figure is concealed by a sheet. By means of a string attached to the lower jaw of the skull, he claps aud rattles the bones to the real delight aud pretended terror of the maid-servants. ITis companions siug Welsh songs of various kinds, make a show of restrain ing the vagaries of the monster, aud receive what pence may be bestowed upon them.
