OUR TRAVELLER'S LETTER. MELBOURNE, August 10, 1884. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 16 August 1884

OUR TRAVELLER'S LETTER. MELBOURNE, Augnst 10,1884. No doubt you are waiting to hear some news o£ your, special commissioner to : Adelaide, and to receive some " notes by the way." Well, I am not altogether in lore with Melbourne. From what I had heard, I really expeotcd to see something different. Certainly it is a better laid out oity than Sydney, and the streets are much wider, but in regard to buildings I think Sydney takes the premier position in point of Bizo and beauty of architecture. The drive to Richmond, one of the suburbs, is a really nice one. Mr. L has a very nice country or surburban residence at Richmond, and somo beautiful 'daughters too. Melbourne is a regular business place, and the people are tremend ous go-aheads. Fuller's book arcade is a marvel, no mistake about it; it is visited by thousands of people daily. We have spiendid accommodation on board the Peshawur. I am writing this on board. I will post . it this evening when I go into town. We leave for Adelaide...

LECTURE ON DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 16 August 1884

LECTURE OK DAIRYING. We commend the following remarks to the. consideration of our dairy readers, simply stating that they were made by Mr. Molver in a lecture in Sydney recently :— He stated that he had to deal with the rational principles of dairying, and these were conneoted with the condition of the herbage on which cows are fed. The best, liorbage can be grown only on soil which is. porous. to prevent water from lodging for a long time on its surface ; for water remain-, ing on the surfaco is injurious to vegetation.. A good pasture should consist of' mixed grasses. Phosphorio acid is one of the com stituents of plant food, and a large quantity of this is removed annually by the animala that feed on pasture. The Cheshire pasture lands were for a long time famous as cheese producing pastures; but eventually the phosphates of the soil became nearly ex hausted, and then the farmers, fading the yield of cheese from their cows began ta decrease, both in quantity and quality, went el...

Ladies, lake comfort. We observe tlint an interesting address was recently given in Melbourne by the He v. 0. J. B.yng on the subject of gossiping. The Eev. gentleman defends the ladies from the oft-repeated charge so glibly made of being greater gossipers than men, and de clared that as much scandal is discussed over a pipe and a glass of brandy as was ever hatched by two old women over a cup of tea.

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 16 August 1884

SYDNEY GOSSIP. JTiioar oun Ooiiuesi'ondent " Claiu." Toe horrible case of wife-beating, or rath or wiio-mangling, perpetrated by a savage miner the oilier, day, has shocked, evoa those who. are familiar with those disgraceful oc currences. The wretched victim of the violence iu question was well-aiigb battered to a mummy by the brute she called hus band* aud would have been q.uite- kilted but for the interference of rescuers, who con veyed her to. the hospital. For this barbar ous assault, whioli will involve long weeks of suffering, the perpetrator was ouly pun ished with six months' hard labour. It lias been said that tlio merciful side is ever the just one, but in tlio present instance of over-clemency it was u cruol wrong both to the publio. and tho individuals concerned. Allowing the poor excuse of drunkenness as the extenuating circumstances that attended thisatrociousoutrage, twoyears.oughttohavo been the penalty, as it was by the merest accident that murder was not committed...

The last iiguro, that of tho current roturn, is as much as 87 abovo the average. Some steps ought to bo takon by the sanitary authorities to prevent this terrililo waste of infant life ; but it is more probable that move could bo done by tho united effort on the part of hospital out patient physicians, No child with whoop ing-cough ought to bo allowed to visit any out patient department—iu tho first place, becauso of tho obvious danger of infecting other childron, and in tho second plnco, be cause uo medicine which the most scientific nud adventurous therapoutist oould proscribe can ever conn tor balanco the harm done by. bringing a child with whooping-cough out of doors.

SIR HENRY PARKES AT THE} CO.IIDEN (MB. The annual dinner of the Oobden Club 'was j held at Greenwich on Juno 58. Sir Henry Parkes was present aud spoke as follows; " The words that I shall say will oertainly be | very few, and I doubt whether I am justified in detaining you with any words at all at this time of the evening. But I oome | from a portion of the ompire where English-, are stoadily performing great work, and I have learned that there is an impression very widely spread amongst the English people that the colonies,, which to some ex tent I may be said to represent hero to-night, aro often indulging in legislation antagonis tic to English interests. As far as I can give an opinion, I do not think that any lccl mg at all in opposition to the mother coun try prevails in any of the commercial legis lation of the Australian colonies. It must be recollected that the legislatures in all these colonies are composed of mon whose training has been very different from the legislator...

RATHER SHARP WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 16 August 1884

IUTJIER; SUAUP WRK. Thd Bowral correspondent of tlio Scrutineer writes that Mr. W. H. Eiley, our much re spected. publican, was the'subject of a rather sharp turn on Friday, the 1st August. It appears that a man giving his name as Mr. A. J. Hart, and driving a draper's cart, put up at Eiley's ; during his stay he offered his cart and, horse to several townspeople for £18, but 110 one seeming inclined to pur chase, ho gave it under offer to Mi'. Eiley for £17, who purchased ifc, and got a receipt: for the amount^ and our friend made his do- : parture. All went well till Friday last, when Messrs. Pratt and Co.,. of Parramatta, put in an appearance with Mr. Quiiin and claimed the cart and horse as their property. Taking off a piece of board on the side of the cart they soon showed that they were the rightful owners, their name being writ ten on the same. Mr. Eiley had to hand the cart over to Mr. Quinn, and a warrant has been issued for the thief s arrest. Pratt and Co. stated they had...
