LOYALTY RUN MAD. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 28 March 1885

LOYALTY RUN MAD. It is not a pleasant thing to feel oneself bound to oppose a sentiment with whioh, in- general, ono is in hearty sympathy. And yet when a tiling whioh is excellent in moderation is carried to such an ex treme as to become hurtful our duty is plain. To use a comparison — we like a a social glass, and have even some pre tensions to be considered a bon vivant, but when we find some of the company in danger of exceeding the . bounds of modera tion we incontinently become an advocate of sobriety, and literally, throw eold water in the festivites. So, — although loyalty is 1 undoubtedly a good quality ana every honest man is,- in general, bound to advo cate it— |when|a community gets drunk upon loyalty it is time to preaoh moderation aud prescribe an antidote I propose then to shew that Gordon ' Pasha's' charaoter was not by any means so spotless as his advooates would have us believe; that he was in faot more of a'time-server than an honest man ; and this being so that n...

SUGAR AND POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 28 March 1885

SUGAR AND POETRY. The late James T. Fields, while an active partner in the firm of Ticknor and Fields, was waited upon by a young sugar-merchant who had poetic aspira tions. The mercantile man complained :that his manuscript poems had been re jected by the firm, and wanted to know the reason why, inasmuch as all his friends had heard the verses read and unanimously declared them to be an accession to American literature. ' Our reader decides that,' said Mr. Field, in j h'is blandest tones. ' Then I would lite to see the reader.' Always the] personification of amiability himself, the' publisher took the merchant up stairs to the reader. That mighty per Bonage sat at a desk heaped high with manuscripts; he carefully read a few pages of eaoh ^package, then dropped it into a basket at' his side. Occasionally he became more interested ; in that case he placed the package inside the desk. ' Why, he goes through 'em just as I sample sugar ! ' exclaimed the would-be poet in amazement. ' Tha...

Current Items. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 28 March 1885

Current Items. Telegrams received yesterday seem to point to the faot that Russia intends to fight. It appears that before com mitting herself she wants Turkey for an ally. This she is hardly likely to ob tain. Even wore negociations not pend ing between the Imperial Government and Turkey, we can hardly suppose that the latter country has yet forgotten Plevna, or will forgo an opportunity of revenge. England has little to fear from Russia if we are to believe the talented and accomplished writer now in our midst — Mr. George Augustus Sala. He says that Russia is bankrupt to the backbone, that her army is financially crippled and her navy a pious fraud, and that while falsehood and treachery stand her in good stead she is not likely to resort to force of arms. Possibly at the last moment recollections of Alma and Iukerman may prove some deterrent to her ardour, though from the tone of yes terday's telegrams war is looked upon almost as a certainty. The ordinary meeting of the Balmain...

Leichhardt Tramfares. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 28 March 1885

Leiohhardt Tramfares. A well attended meeting was held on Wednesday evening at the Leiohhardt council-chambers, the Mayor (Alderman John Young) presiding, . to disouss the question of the tram fares. The chairman said tho reason the Government tramlines had not been successful was not beoauBe money was wasted but beoause the Government did not know how to manage their business. An extortionate . and unreasonable rate of fares was charged on some of the lines, especially on the Leich hardt lino. He thought that if an omnibus could carry passengers for a much lower rate— 4d, an improved method of carriage surely ought not to demand a higher tariff. Mr. Fred. Walsh moved the first resolution : ' That the residents of Leichhardt, for- the second time, protest against the unjust action of tho Government in raising the fares upon the trams, to and from Bridge street to eLiohhardt, and further protest against the continued imposition of suoh inoreased fares.' He pointed out that the reside...
