MR. BERRY'S TRIP HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 March 1879

Mn. Berry's Trip Homk. Mr. Berry, we are told, concisely slated the object of the mission en trusted to his fellow-commissioner and himself, and of course indulged in a diatribe against Sir James M'Culloch, whom he blamed altogether for what had taken place, including the stone wall business, the throwing out of the Aniu'onriation Bill by the Legislative Council, and the subsequent dismissal of the Civil servants. It was not to be expected that Mr. Berry, who it is w ell known is possessed of a relincd taste, would refrain from indulging in a crow over his defeated rival, especially when the}' were separated by a solid globe of earth. All this must have beeti very interesting to Sir Michael Hicks- Heacli, as affording an insight into the amenities of colonial political life, and then it was all so very relevant to the matter in hand ! The whole object of the crisis was exhaustively dealt with, and the Commissioner are said to be quite satisfied. They must be easily satisfied, howeve...

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. SIR HERCULES ROBINSON. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 March 1879

SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. ? Sir Hercules Robinson. Everyone who Las followed tlie pub lic utterances of Sir Hercules Robinson will remember his frequent allusions to, and able arguments iu favour of, feder ation for ? the Australian group of colonies, and it is a melancholy coinci dence to observe that that scheme, whatever may have baen its chancs of success a few years ago, has been thrown back almost irretrievably by the condi tion of affairs now obtaining in Victoria, and resulting from the fact of that colony having for a Governor at a most critical period of lier history a man so devoid of the attributes to which we have referred, and one so dissimilar in that respect from Sir Hercules Robin son himself. In the contemplation of the many valedictory notices that will shortly be considered necessary, we hesitate to inflict upon our readers any such effort 011 our part, and will con tent ourselves by simply recording our recognition of the thoroughly English character of our departing...

CHARITY AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 March 1879

CHARITY AT HOME. ' Cursed is he who givcth to the rich,' says the Koran ; yet it is to the wellto do, to the comfortable classes that sucli Christmas compliments as fat hares aud hea\ry turkeys, and other varieties of fur and feather, are sent iu embar rassing superfluity, Riches to the rich ; sweets to the sweet ; favours to the favoured. Yet just now the claims of the poor upon our regard are greater than ever. The vivid accounts given by Mr. Becker, tbe Special Commis sioner of the j Daily A civs, of the distress prevailing in Sheffield, are ghastly in their overwhelming truth. I11 Derby a list of fresh local failures shows that the town is sharply affected by the com mercial crisis, and a visit to our soup kitchens, opened last Saturday, where nourishing soup is retailed at a nominal price, which, tiiough small, might surely be abolished, shows a nightmare of poor famished faces. I heard this week of a poverty-stricken man stealing a sheep's pluck from a butcher's board in Abbey...

CHRISTMAS MORALITY. Tuhue are some ojiLruons about Cliriht mas wSiicli 'the exporicncn of tlie present season seems likely to place in a remark able lielit. It lifts been thought, for Instance, tliat the best ChmtniaH, tlie moHt 'genial' Christinas, is a cold , ChristmaN, and that the world has somehow degenerated since the last dayu of December came to be distin guiKhed by soft rain and tejiid warmth. It heeiiis nlso to bo generally assumed that everybody feasts at Christm:is, from the prince to the pauper ; and there is a further opinion, very emphatically impressed upon us on Christmas that it is the proper momi-nt f«jr c;illiiig to mind the iiiestimalile lili!ssing.s v.e liave received tlirough receiving from Christianity u moral code infinitely superior to any ethical system which the benighted heathen either professed or practised.

Hollo way's Ointment and Ptlls. — Colds, Coughs, Shortness of Breath. — These corrective remedies are in fallible for these pectoral complains, which neglected, often end in asthma, bronchitis, or consumption. The Oint ment well rubbed upon tlie chest and back, penetrating tbe skin, is carried directly to the lungs, whence it expels all impurities. All the blood in the body constantly passes through the lungs, and there all noxious blood in the body constantly passes through the lungs, and there all noxious particles tending to produce disease, can be quickly, thoroughly, and permanently neutral ised, rendered harmless, or ejected from the system. Holloway's Ointment and Pills perfectly accomplish this purifica tion ; and through the blood, thus cleansed, the influence of these wonder ful medicaments reaches the remotest parts of the human body ; and thus cures all diseased action, whether internal or or external. — Adv.

CORRESPONDENCE. RAILWAY TO HAY. (To the EtUtor of the IT. If. Express.) Sih, — It appears to me that a most import ant point to the consideration of the above subject lias been lost eight of, and it is 'which line will pay best?' Judging from tbe tone of the debate in the House we may fairly assume that the legislature will not sauction anything which mvjht favour Mel bourne, then, if wc want the line constructed on the south side of the river it is necessary, above all things, that we satisfy the ' Powers that be ' tliat such a line will not give Mel bourne any undue advantages. Tlie S. M. Herald objects to the line on the south side, because it would deliver goods some 20 miles nearer Melbourne that Sydney, but in the same article assumes that as soon as the respective Governments are tired of a ruinous competition they will adopt a uniform mile age rate — hear, hear, — -then Melbourne will be on 20 miles better terms thau Sydney. Now, will the freight on 20 miles cover the cost o...
