FRIDAY, JAN. 1, 188i.
.Someone yours ago wrolo, ' lJfortcs
vixere ante .lyamcmnon " and
substituting post for unte, it stands
good to the present hour. "Witncbs
the lute sad affair in the South
Australian bush, where young Giles,
out of a party of six or seven gallant
hearts, only returned with one black
boy to tell the talc of disaster and
death, and having so narrowly es
capedindeed, only by the endur
ance and fidelity of his aboriginal
comrade, who brought him water
and got him into shelter he started
again with relies to his dying mates,
only to fall exhausted a few miles
out; and then having recruited
somewhat (after a day or two), he
insists upou going into the same
deadly bush to "give his lost mates
Christian burial 1" I don't see in
ancient or modern history anything
much grander than this ! There is a
touching incident in connection with
the sad affair, which few, even grey
beards, can read without being
affected, for the word "mother" is
a toucli of uuturo few can resist.
Poor Giles and young Shirley, one
of the lost ones, recognising the
extremity of the situation, shook
hands, and solemnly agreed that
the survivor (if either) should "break
the uews" to the mother of the other.
One can hardly realise the grand
solemnity of such a pious compact
m the wild bush, with the remoisc
less sun drying the life out of them !
On the survivor Giles the sad task
devolved, aud his first attention on
being rescued was to carry out Ins
dead comrade's instructions. Who
shall say after that the glorious
Anglo-Saxon has deteriorated with
his transplantation to a southern boil,
either in courage, fidelity, or filial
The entire Pacific Coast Congres
sional delegation has indorsed Mr
lioruck's suggestion for a World's
Fair in San Francisco in 1887, and
ha's notified Governor Stoneman of
the fact of their unanimity. It is,
therefore, entirely probable that the
idea will receive Fedaral sanction and
probaby liberal Government aid.
As we have reiterated, the first step
to be taken is to make our axhibits a
the New Orleans World's Fidr, in
188'f, especially representative, full
and attractive. Any failure in that
respect will prove a death blow to
the scheme for 1887. Steps to prop
el ly present California's products at
New Orleans should be taken without
any further delay. We renew the
suggestion that the commercial bodies
of our chief cities and State Board
of Agriculture call a council, to meet
in the first fortnight of the new year,
to consider the question of ways and
Few queerer stories have been told
about the navy of late yqars than
that of the accident to the Royal
Albert, at Plymouth, last Friday.
If the story is true, the vessel in
question was all but sunk through
the leaving open of a valve in con
nection with the engine room.
Almost as soon as the mischief was
discovered, she had ten feet of water
in her hold, and was beginning to
settle down. The accident is pre
cisely identical with that in the funny
parody of Tom Bowling PuneWs,
I think in which poor Jack Stoker
"leffc the valve unstopped." Of
couisc the story concludes with the
usual official sarcasm "an inquiry
had been ordered." What a lot of
light these inquiries must throw on
the mysteries of modern seamanship !
The system of extracting money
from the public for every conceivable
uud inconceivable object by the sale
of useless things by pretty young
ladies is at last nearly played out ; and
fancy bazaars are beginning to fall
flat, even in Brighton, where thej'
have hitherto flourished in a manner
out of all proportion to their deserts.
They seem to have reached their
nadir in one held last week to collect
funds to build a house for ti reverend
gentleman and his wife near Hove.
The only tempting objects offered
for sale to the few of the public who
were beguiled into paying a shilling
for the privilege of inspecting the
stalls' were some dolls dressed in
divided skirts, furnished by the
national Dress Association', and
even they didn't sell. Lift,
