This Rotary, Press has now been, an a measure,- superseded by tho'"Wob Printing Machine," as it is called, the joint production of ? Colonel Hoe and ono of his partners, Mr S. D. Tucker. It was possible for a Lightning Press of the largest size-ten cylinders-to ? print 20,000 impressions an hour, but only upon one side of the shoet.

"Copenhagen." [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 31 March 1877

"Copenhagen." A DUBUQUE GIRL played " Copen- hagen" at a party the other night, and yelled, and shrieked, and howled, and ran behind the door and scratched the young man's face in seven places, and up- set a kerosene lamp, and kicked over a piano stool, and screamed for the police, and finally, when he kissed her just on the tip of the ear, she fainted dead away, and said she could never look anyone in the face again, and they led the bashful, modest creature sobbing home. The next day she ran away with a married lightning- rod peddlar, with a hair-lip and six children. _

Funeral of Archbishop Polding. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 31 March 1877

Funeral of Archbishop Folding. THE Sydney correspondent - of the « Clarence Examiner ' says,-As an old colonist and early pioneer in Australia, as well as the prominent position he held in his church, has caused his loss to be all the keener felt,, and regret, with even a softer tribute, hos been expressed and felt over his demise. The doleful tolling of minute and muffled bells until the funeral procession started from St. Mary's Friday forenoon has by no means improved the scene of regret, but added one or more pangs to those who knew him. best. Indeed, the cessation of so doleful a sound has lifted much oppressive feeling from the drowsy and solemn puuse which it helped to create. The whole of Saturday he was laid out in state in tifo Sacred Heart Church where thousands congregated to take a last look upon what they venerated. Towards evening the body was l'emoved to tho pro-Cathedral, where again it ; was on view to . the public, the coffin resting on a raised dais or cata falqu...
