The Australian Blondin. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 7 April 1877

The'Australian Blondin. Ox Thursday afternoon, in the presence oi several gentlemen, including tho representa tives of the Press, the Australian Blondin accomplished the hazardous and astounding feat of walking across Middle Harbour on a rope. The steamer Britania took the party down, reaching the site of the performance in the course of an hour, and the- trip up the harbour turned: out most "enjoyable. From un open reach, a short distance -above the ferry, the first sight of the rope was caught, and looking at the tremendous distance to be travelled, and the height above the water, it was generally ' held os being next to an impossibility for Blondin to succeed in his daring attempt. The steamer announced her approach with the whistle, and after going alongside one of the lauding stages, was moving out to mid-channel, When a cheer from a man in a boat hear the other other shore announced that the performance had begun, Perfect silence prevailed aboard, and all eyes Were directed to...

East Sydney Nomination. TnE following is a sumnaiy of the speech delivered hy Mr. Parkes on the above occa sion, when he was declared duly elocted : Mr. PARKES said it was very natural, in a great constituency like this, that there should be some elements of difference under existing circumstances. He did not expect that his conduct would be approved by eveiybody. For that very reason he was entitled to fair play on an occasion like this. He assured them that the leading questions of the day he would speak his opinions, and shirk none of them. It was his (Mr. Parke's) first duty to render to his friends and his opponents his thanks for the unanimous election they had accorded him. A little more than two years he appealed to them, when he held the proud position of Prime Minister. They ac corded to him the expression of their confi dence by the highest number of votes ever polled in East Sydney. And now, after two years, he was again occupying that high position. He did not appear wi...

The Open Column. (To the Editar <of ike "Northern Star.") NEW SOOTH WALES POBLTC SCHOOL LEAGUE. Sydney, 22nd Maren, 18?7. PEAR SIR,-I am instructed, by the committee of the New South Wales Public School League, to invite you to assist in further efforts to extend the ¡advantages of ?education to all classes of the community. The soundness of the principies adopted by the League is, daily, becoming more ?evident; for, notwithstanding the partial 'success of the Publio Schools Act of 1866, ample "proof has 'been given that a more comprehensive system is now needed to meet the wants of the uneducated. Under the system advocated by' the League, effectual means would be provided for securing the attendance of those children; who need education, but who are either deprived of its advantages or neglected.' ' In the suburbs and country districts much good might be done by the formation of branches for the purpose of explaining and advocating the principles of the League, and refu...

Pay of Authors [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 7 April 1877

Pay of Authors; 'Ämerictin' rea'dersJ (remarks a contem porary) have a happy facility of owing books rather than of borrowing them from circulating libraries. 'There is little doubt that every reader in our happy land con gratulates himself upon this fact, and is sure that it is something we all have a right to be proud of. People who pur chase thc books they road, and hold them' as heirlooms for their descendants, who associate with the books they love to rtiad the pride' of ownership,' must, it is natural to suppose, have a dooper mtercst'in litera ture than those who ? peruse the . much thumbed volumes of the circulating library, which,'being once read,: are never at hand again'for after perusal-for stray moments of companionship,' or for occa sional recurrence ter favorite passages.
