A NOTABLE CENTENARIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 12 January 1884
I ' I A NOTABLE CENTENARIAN. Sib Mohks Mo.vtkfioke entered upon his hundredth yet it ou Wednesday, October 24th, and the event was signalised by addresses of congratulation from all parts of the world. To the Jewish community the occasion was one of especial rejoicing, but it was not confined to them alone, as the philanthropy of Sir Moses Moulefiore know no distinction of sect or race. His name has been prominently associated with every groat work oí charity undertaken during the greater part of the present century. The period over which his beneficent activity lias extended is veritably patriarchal. He was a year old when I)r. Johnson died ; he was. ten when Louis XVI. and Murie Antoinette ; were guillotined ; he was thirteen when the Eniperor William was born ; and was verg ing on manhood at the birth of the venerable Moltko. At the time of Nelson's greatest victories he hud just attained his majority, and was thirtv-oue when Wellington defeated Napoleon at'Waterloo. He has devot...
MISCELLANEOUS. FRENCH CONVICT MARRIAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 12 January 1884
MISCELLANEOUS. FEENCH CONVICT MARRIAGES. (From Chambers's Journal.) An interesting report lias lately beeu pub lished by tho French Minister of Justice, giving an account of the convict ménagés— that is, of conples who have been married in 'tho'colony and of those who have merely been re-joinod there. The marriages in which tho bride and bridegroom were both convicts have exceeded six hundred since the year 1873. They constitute no. actual innovation in prison life, but are merely a return to the practice that prevailed before the great revolution, when tho French colo nies used to be recruited with convicts, who liad been released from the galleys 011 con dition of their marrying women who had beeu inmates of gaols. -Nowadays it is of course required of a bride that she should have beon—legally speaking, at least—a cri minal of a very bad kind ; 110 female pri soner is, in fact, eligible for transportation unless she shall have been sentenced to , seven years' penal servitude.

HE WAS THE MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 12 January 1884
HE WAS THE MAN. It was on a Western railroad. Tbo con ductor liad been bis rounds, and taken a seat beeide a very quiet and unassuming passenger. " Pretty full' train," finally observed the passenger. " Yes." "Road 6eema to be doing a good busi ness." "Ob, the road makes plenty of money, but " " But wbat ?" asked the passenger, as the other hesitated. " Bad, management. It is the worst managed line in the whole country." " Is that so ?" " That's so. The board of officials might know how to run a side show to a circus, but they can't tackle a railroad." " Who is the biggest fool of the lot ?" " Well, the Superintendent is."

THE IRISH QUESTION IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 12 January 1884
THE IRISH QUESTION IN AMERICA. The peculiar position of the British Islands, and the consequent difficulties which .sur round' thé relations of the English and Irish people, are not, I think, generally understood in the United Slates. There is a humorous story of a Boston schoolmistress who, when she was asked to. point out Groat Britain on a map of Europe which she had drawn, is said to liftYe answered, " Oh, we take no account of islands?" Of course it is impossible to appreciate the political posi tion of the United Kingdom without know ing also something of its geographical posi tion. If Ireland, as Mr. Bright put it many years ago, could be removed from her moorings three thousand miles to the west, our troubles with that country would soon be at an end. The separation of the islands by a very much smaller distauce, than that mentioned by Mr. Bright would sullice the purpose. It is only because Ireland is so closely contiguous to England, that the independence of the one is utt...

ORIGINAL POETRY. WRITTEN ON THE DEATH OF A GENTLEMAN'S WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 19 January 1884
ORIGINAL POETE Y. WRITTEN ON TIIE DEATH OF A GENTLEMAN'S WIFE. TnE brightest flamo that lights tho gloom, But llasiios o'or its dying ray : The sweetest ilowor that's known to bloom, Sheds perfumo o'er it't own decay. So glides through each successive hour, All naturo to ono common doom ; And liko tho flame and fragrant flower, Love gilds tho darkness o£ tho tomb. So are we school'd from all we see, And hear, and breathe beneath the sky, That thoso twin sparks o£ Deity— Sweet love and beauty—uover dio. And if it bo, as wo aro taught, A kindred spirit's left behind, There lives a solace in the thought To soothe tho sorrow of the mintl. And purify it for tho last, Of it's frail tenement's career ; That winging heavenwards shall cast A halo round the silent bier. Then gricvo not at thy lov'd one's fato, Nor weep beside tho letter'd stone, Sho's only gone before to wait Tho later coming o£ hor own. * * # * * How sweet is tho perfumo of rosea . When borne on the zephyrs of ove, To sport ...
