POETRY. Christmas Bells. (Written for the GAZETTE). [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
POETBY. Christmas Bells. (Written for the GAZETTE). LIST to the sound of Christmas Bells Ringing their chimes As in by-gone times They often rang. And wooded dells Where gurgling streams Awake from dreams The silence which within them dwells Re-echo with the silvery notes, Rung from rich, melodious throats, As each peal o'er the woodland floats ; O'er hill and plain O'er mount and main The glad refrain With sweet, sonorous cadence swells. Until it Alls The cragged hills And rippling rills With music of the Christmas Bells ? List to the sound as o'er grass-grown glade Where flow'rs are kis't By morning mist It murmurs its song to the nut-brown maid Culling the rose with its wealth of sheen, Clamb'ring the hillocks and valleys between, Breathing its fragrance and mingling its breath With the sound of bells, till the distant heath Resounds with rich melody floating along And birds still their warbling to list to the song ; From far and near It carries its cheer And falls on the ear Of ...
CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
CHAPTER I. A cold night in December, sleet and Tain contending for mastery, the raw, .damp wind comes rushing around the corners of streets with a sharp bitterness hustling the muffled travellers against area railings, scurrying across the road to extinguish the feeble light in the paper Hantern on the late apple stall, dashing the sparks from the pieman's can, and .sending them shooting along the street, 'flinging themselves into the eyes of the wayfarers who might venture in their .path. This is no "gentle, warm gale of .spring;" oh, no, this is a true son of Uoreas, which shakes the screaming, roar ing, and riotous tall pines, and sways the sturdy oaks in his mighty grasp, wrenches .off the limbs of the tough elms, and strews zthe sward, as a battlefield, with shattered ?branehes, the victims of his wrath. How many thoughts this tempest may inspire, how many images of wrecked ships And despairing sailors taken up in its arms And dashed again and again against frown ing rocks, unt...
CHRISTMASTIDE. Written for the " W. and R. GAZETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
OHRISTMASTIDE. Written for the " W. and R. GAZETTE. The time draws near the birth of Christ, The moon is hid, the night is still; The Christmas bells from hill to hill Answer each other in the mist. Poets of all ages, nations, and in all languages have sung " in words which breathe and thoughts which burn" in praise of the great Christmas festival which is now at hand. Century after century has passed scince the celc taiio i was first promoted, and still we find that in this the 19th century, it has lost none of its charms for either old or young. By all denominations it is recognised, and by all respected and accepted. What a world of thought the word itself inspires, -whatplersant associations it conjures up to such as look back upon the happy days gone by, and, in imagination, tread the paths of their childhood again. Aye, who is he who can hear the word Christmas-familiar from earliest childhood-pronounced, without feeling his heart throb with a quicker bfeat than usual, and his...
A Christmas Carol. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
A Christmas Carol. 'Tis Christmas, the season of gladness, When men with their neighbours should vie In soothing some sickness or sadness, In robbing some soul of a sigh ; When the cynic should seek to discover . Some subject not worthy a sneer, And learn to speak well of his brother For one day, at least, in the year. When each bashful youth to his maiden With holly-branch bending above Should let his young breast be unladen. Of all the sweet load of its love ; When every old wrong should be righted, And all things run smoothly again, And hopes which misfortune has blighted, Be renewed in a glass of champagne. When hearts which, perchance, have been aching Through some foolish action of word, Should join in a joyous peace-making By Christmas good-fellowship stirred, When friends should forget their estrangements, And foes bid farewell to their feud; And all of us make our arrangements To get most confoundedly screwed.

Mr. Willoughby, surgeon dentist, will be at the old quarters, Royal Hotel, Windsor, during New Year week. At the instigation of Duncan Gillies, a reck less gentleman who is reputed to have given aw.iy a penny at one fell swoop, the Victorian Assembly last week added £1000 a year to the salary of Mr. Railway Commissioner Speight. That celebrated lawyer, Townsend M'Dermott, bade farewell, a long farewell, to his former con stituents at Ballarat amid a perfect tcrnado of hen-fruit and blue metal. Taking advantage of a slight lull in the storm Townsend leant over the rails and yelled : " GooDbye-and d n you all! I'm only too glad to have done with such a scurvy lot. I've defended one-half of you, and the other half I have prosecuted !" Mr....
Our Christmas Stories. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 December 1888
Our Christmas Stories. Altogether we received six original stories for our competition. Three were good, but the re mainder were merely sketches, and could not possibly be classed with the others. We have decided to divide the prize of 21s between G. D. D., whose story, "The Dangerfields," is now being published, and " Cornstalk " (Mr. Joseph Traughton, Tenterfield), who has written us a short but very readable story entitled, " The Clown's Christmas Eve." The reason why we havecommenced the publication of " The Danger fields " first is because it is written by a resident of this town. The story, " Mary Guthrie," by Lionel Lewis, whilst being extremely well-written and well worth publishing, is scarcely so good as the two previously mentioned.
Riverstone. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 December 1888
Riverstone. The threatening weather on Saturday night did not prevent a large attendance being present at another concert held in the Cosmopolitan Hall, in connection with the funds of the Relief Society. The concert this time was not so successful as on previous uccasions. Mr. Saundercock occupied the chair, and in passing a few remarks said he was pleased to see a large number of people present, but he had to apologise for the shortness of the programme, which they had hurriedly got up. Miss Grace's overture was the first item, which was played with good taste. Miss Maggie jns-.iph was the next to follow, and sang .. No Fear," which was well received, and encored, Mr. John Doyle then gave a comic song, " Father, dear father, the brokers are in." I was wishing for some one to break in and stop him. This song was not to my taste, but it pleased the majority of the audience, so we will let it pass for the time being. That little mite, Pearly Win dred, treated the audience with the " ...
BOXING DAY [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 December 1888
UOXLNG HAY was extremely hot, as many a man and woman, returning home in the afternoon in a state of perspiration and witli the skin peeling off their ' nohes in hu;je flakes, could tell. Dozens of private picnio parlies went out into the country and enjoyed themselves; others played cricket at home ; others again went away to the metropolis, and some few visited the Windsor Farm Races. The attendance did not number more than about 200, but though the fields were small the racing was very good, and the meeting deserved to be better patronised. Mr. George Oobcroft made a v&lt;;ry efficient starter, and in all cases got his fields well away together. In the absence of Mr. John Gough, Mr. J. R Huxley performed the duties of judge very successfully, and Mr. Palmer Darker, ns clerk of the course, w is all that could be desired. The slewards were :-Messrs. James Huxley, J. Kir wan, H Stephenson, and George Cobcroft, all of whom worked well indeed, Mr. G. Cobcroft deserving the hig...
The French Army. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 December 1888
The French Army. The armj' of France is almost as well trained as that of its enemy across the Rhine, and it prossesses a wonderful weapon in the Lebel repeating-rifle, an implement of destruction which wipes out everything yet invented or conceived by the mechanical homicides of Berlin. The Lebel rifle, too, has one immense ad vantage over everything yet produced it is silent. The powder used in its cartridges makes no smoke and hardly any perceptible report, and the new death-inachine speaks in a whisper and supplies no clue to the whereabouts of of the troops by whom it is used. The sauer-kraut veterans of Germany are brave enough, but they object strongly to be used as targets for the insanitary weapon carried by the French infantry, and the generals vainly implore Kaiser William to sing low, and howl the " Watch on the Rhine" in a softer key. The young Imperial cripple, however, treats these warnings wiih contempt, and pursues his noisy way as before, and Europe experiences a d...
Breaking-up for the Holidays. CATHOLIC SCHOOL ENTERTAINMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 December 1888
Breaking-up for the Holidays. CATHOLIC SCHOOL ENTERTAINMENT. The konian Catholic school in Church-street broke up with a musical entertainment on Friday - the examination of pupils having taken place earlier in the week. This school is now in charge of the Sisters of St Joseph'r. Cuivent, and those present at the entertainment on I'rklay could but have come to the conclusion that these ladies are doing what masters failed to do. The singing was fairly good ; the recitations of both boys and girls excellent; and the work exhibited to the visitors' v'iew, whether in writing, drawing, mapping, or needle work, was certainly above the average. The entertainment consisted of choruses, solos, duets, recitation:;, dialogues, and short dramas, in all oi which the pupils acquitted themselves well. The dialogue in " Lochiel's Warning," by Masters Iiosa and Holland, was particularly good ; so also was the comic dialogue between Masters Burns and Rosa; the "Little Men," by the school; " The spid...
Advice to Young Printers. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 December 1888
Advice to Young Printers. The employers of the printing firm of Messrs. Neil and Co., Edinburgh, lately celebrated their eleventh annual reunion. The firm's manager, Mr. James Wilkie, occupied the chair; and the attendance, which included friends, numbered about 700. After tea, the chairman, in address ing the meeting, remarked that they could not shut their eyes to the fact that in this, as in every other country, the keenest competition was going on, not only among capitalists for the employment of their capital, but also among workmen for the full employment of their energy. He would point out to the younger among the employees-more especially to the young men that it rested very much with themselves whether they succeeded in life or not. If a young man would take an interest in his trade, and would devote his leisure time to reading (and this was particularly applicable to young printers) and to making himself proficient in that which meant his " bread and butter" throughout lif...

WINDSOR HIGH SCHOOL. On Friday evening at the invitation of Mr. Young, the popular head-master, we visited the Volunteer Barracks where a lengthy and varied programme was gone through by his pupils. There were several visitors present, and Mr. W. H. H. Becke.P. M., occupied the chair. During the evening refreshments were partaken of. Mr. Young appears to have complete control over all his pupils, and this he has secured by a system of treatment which is satisfactory to both parties. Following is the programme which was presented : -Boxing, Fitzpatrick v. Buttsworth ; Dunstan v. Greenwell ; violin solo, Clive Callaghan ; pillow light, juniors; boxing, Clive Callaghan v. C. Greenwell ; Mr. Young v. Ross, violin solo, W. Moses ; pillow-jighting, seniors ; tug of war, all; violin solo, W Moses ; boxing. Dick v. Greenwell; Winner v Dunstan ; recitation, Master Butts worth.

ST. ALBANS [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 December 1888
ST ALBANS There has been splendid rain in the M'l^onald ; in fact the farmers were rather frightened of a flood, as tli river rose about six feet on Saturday night Dec 15, but it was only for a day, as it has Rut back to its^ usual leval again. It is rather muddy and full of burnt rubbish that has washed off the mountains alter the late fires. The corn up the upper M'Donald has been knocked about a piod deal by a hail storm on Saturday. The Itail was very lar^e . in fact some of it had not melted .i\vay until Tuesday following Constable John Gilbert has been appointed to collect the electoral roll.
