FROM THE MURRAY TO THE MURRUMBIDGEE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 March 1879

FROM THE MURRAY TO THE MURRUMBIDGEE. By Q. Vive. Circumstances are held responsible for a wide range of mundane eventualities. Does a merchant smash for half a million or so, tlie Press sympathising]}' chronicles that pressure of circum stances has compelled Mr. ? to call his creditors together. Should tlie general of an army by egregious blun dering permit himself to be out manceuvred, 'unforeseen circumstances' are called into requisition to palliate his incompetency. When a maiden makes a faux pas, which results in her being cut by her fair sisterhood, the 'unfortu- nate circumstances ' surrounding her retirement from society are tenderly alluded to. If Mr. Jones, driven to desperation by a series of bad hands at poker, cheats his creditors by commit ting suicide, the rash act is compas sionately attributed by those to whom he owed nothing to ' impoverished circumstances.1' ' Fortuitous circum stances ' have frequently explained equivocal conduct on the part of mag nates of the l...

DULL HOSTS AND DULL GUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 March 1879

? I DULL HOSTS AND DULL GUESTS. We have often noticed that there are people, passably agreeable in a general way, who make very dull hosts and hostesses. This may partly be accounted for by the fact that their minds are too much absorbed in domestic arrange mpnfs fm* f.lin rvmifnrf. nf t.lipir ompeffc It is difficult to think of two things at once, and when a man is meditating a scolding for his butler on account of the dulness of the lamps or the coldness of the claret, he is likely enough to talk in au abstracted manner to his visitors. Again, a hostess is dull whose mind and eyes are fixed during the whole of din ner upon the food and the footmen ; ana tne laav ot tne nouse is oiten tne dullest partner in a ball-room. An ex ceedingly stupid companion also is the hostess who devotes her whole attention to one of her guests. Do or say what they may, none but the lion can excite her interest. After telling her an elaborate story to which we imagined she paid some sort of attention, ...

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. THE ALBURY AND WAGGA RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 March 1879

SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. The Albury and Wagga Railway. The Govenment is evidently alive to the importance of getting this end of the railway finished in time for the opening of the Exhibition, but, how ever, it is surely quite as important as the other. Mr. Lackey informed the House the other night that when it was decided to hold the iiixlubition, he communicated with the contractors of the Albury line as to the possibility of getting the extensions finished by the end of the year, and found that it was possible. But on discovering that the shortening of the time would involve au additional expenditure of £25,000 he gave up the idea on the ground, as he intimated, that the House wonld not be likely to vote the money. Indeed, it is not denied that the line could be completed even now, but the Govern ment has apparently given up all con sideration on the subject. We think that this is very much to be regretted. The two things to be considered at present are — Is it possible to get the li...

SOME METROPOLITAN FACTS. London (with all its . suburbs) covers witliin the 15 miles radius of Charing Cross nearly 700 square miles. It numbers within these boundaries over 4,000,000 inhabitants.

At first sight, Mr. Windeyer ought to win, because he is Attorney General ; but Sir Henry Parkes is known to be a dark man, and has been known before now to play false.

MR. FREDERIC HARRISON ON BOOKS. A lectuee wag recently delivered at thei London institution by Mr. Frederic Harrison, his subject being 'The Mis use of Books.' There were he said, many-ways of, abusing books, but not many would follow the example of a college tutor .he had known, whose life passion was the'bimng and readme of books, but who, always threw the leaves as he read them into the fire, as either worthless or already printed on his .memory. ' The hoarding up of rare books of which we made little or no use was a more common foible; but the worst misuse of the art of reading he knew of, .and at the same time the most widely spread, was the waste of time and attention upon utterly trivial productions, while leaving unread or forgotten the greatest and best books ever written. Even scholars indulged too much in promiscuous readin', although the longest life and the greatest industry would not enable a man to master a hundreth part of the books really worth reading.

These black trackers formed the nucleus of the Queensland native police, who are com posed exclusively of youug natives in the prime of life, and generally taken from the southern tribes to be employed against their northern brothers.
