[?]ntest [?]telligence. THE MINISTRY SAVED FROM DEFEAT BY THE CASTING VOTE OF THE SPEAKER. SYDNEY—FRIDAY, 11.20 a.m. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 13 June 1874

LATEST INTELLIGENCE (FROM MESSRS. GORDON AND GOTCH [BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH.]   THE MINISTRY SAVED FROM DEFEAT BY THE CASTING VOTE OF THE SPEAKER     SYDNEY— Friday, 11.20 a.m. In the Legislative Assembly last night, after a warm debate, Mr. Combe's amendment respecting Gardiner's release was rejected by the casting vote of the Speaker ; the original numbers voting on each side being 26. Then followed a scene, more protracted and more vehement than had ever occurred in the Parliamentary history of this colony.

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 13 June 1874

The excitement respecting the release of Gardiner and his associates has extended over the whole colony. The condition of our small number of inhabitants, spread over a great extent of country, renders them pecu- liarly liable to the marauding attacks of men who prefer the "eclat" and excitement of bushranging to any more legitimate method of obtaining a livelihood. Several times this mania for bushranging has been unusually   prevalent in this colony; and although there have been periods of comparative quiet, the   incursive spirit has continually returned, and for, a time kept at bay, or at least set at defiance, all the powers of law to subdue it. It was a great satisfaction to all lovers' of good government when the gang of whom Gardiner was head finally met the fate they so richly deserved ; and although their chief managed to escape the halter, the public mind was content with the severe sentence of thirty-two years' imprisonment inflicted upon him. P...

SYDNEY, FRIDAY EVENING, 6 o'clock. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 13 June 1874

SYDNEY, Friday Evening, 6 o'clock. A new undertaking is announced, to be called the Colonial Bank. Louis Cohen, the auctioneer, has failed, the deficiency shown in his schedule is £10,000. The hull of a vessel has been found in Bass's Straits ; it is feared this is the remains of another large wreck. The Mail steamer takes home 133,050 sover- eigns. The wool sales (Sydney) were dull ; very few bales changed hands.     The cattle sales this week were dull, and closed at a reduction of fully 10s. per head. Best bullocks are quoted at from £8 5s, to £8 10s. Of fat sheep there was a full supply ; fifty-six pound wethers are worth 13s. 6d. The market for breadstuffs is dull ; best wheat is quoted at 6s. 6d. per bushel. The jury were discharged, without agreeing to a verdict, in the sporting action, Filgate v. the Australian Jockey Club, tried at Melbourne. His Holiness the Pope is sufficiently recovered to resume his receptions.     &am...

CATHOLIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 13 June 1874

CATHOLIC.           On Sunday last, His Lordship, Dr. Lanigan, ad- ministered Confirmation to about 120 children       and adults. The inclemency of the weather pre- vented the ceremony from taking place as had been arranged (in the large marquee at the found- ation stone of the new church), and, as a con- sequence, the old church was inconveniently crowded.   His Lordship, assisted by the Priests of the district, Father Dunne and Father McGrath, spent the two preceding days in examining and pre- paring the candidates for Confirmation. After the 11 o'clock Mass, celebrated by the   Rev. J. Dunne, his Lordship read the Epistle and Gospel of the Sunday, and advised the general congregation upon the Holy Eucharist, laying particular stress upon the obligation of the Paschal Communion. He then reminded those for Confir- mation of the nature of the Sacrament t...

LAYING THE FOUNDATION-STONE OF THE POST AND TELEGRAPH OFFICE,   BURROWA.     THE ceremony of laying the foundation-stone of the new Post and Telegraph Office in this town was performed on the morning of Wed- nesday last by J. N. Ryan, Esq., J.P., in compliance with a requisition from the in- habitants forwarded to that gentleman a few days previously.

THE DEBATE ABOUT GARDINER [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 13 June 1874

THE DEBATE ABOUT GARDINER, In the Legislative Assembly on Wednesday, June 3rd, — Mr. Combes moved, as an amendment, a reso- lution declaring that the House disapproved of the release of the prisoners referred to in the re- turn laid on the table of the House by the Colo- nial Secretary on the 22nd May last, including the notorious criminal Gardiner. He disclaimed any intention to lead the House to affirm anything inconsistent with constitutional law, and stated that his object was to prevent a great wrong being done to the community. He was aware that the Executive Council had on the previous clay agreed to a change in the manner of dealing with remis- sions of sentences, but the change could not be retrospective. He quoted the opinions of Broom, May, Canning, Todd, and others in support of the right of Parliament to inquire into, and even to control the exercise of the prerogative of mercy, and submitted that if the Governor could liberate on his own authority twenty-four bushrange...

CONSECRATION OF A ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOP. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 13 June 1874

CONSECRATION OF A ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOP. One of the most imposing of the ceremonies of the Roman Catholic Church was performed in the east end of London on March 17, before a consi- derable number of ecclesiastics and a large con- course of laity, including not a few Protestants. The Pope having appointed Dr. Redwood, of the Order of Marists, to the see of Wellington, New Zealand, Dr. Manning fixed the Feast of St Patrick as the day on which the bishop elect should be invested with all the privileges and insignia of   the episcopacy. It was arranged at first that the Right Rev. Dr. Ullathorne, Bishop of Birmingham, should be one of the assistant prelates, of which the Roman ritual requires two ; but almost at the last moment word was received that he had been seized with illness. His place was taken by the Right Rev. Dr. Weathers, Bishop of Amycla, the other assistant prelate being the Right Rev. Dr. Danell, Bishop of Southwark. St. Anne' , S icer- Street, Spitalfields,...

LATEST INTELLIGENCE. REUTER'S TELEGRAMS TO AUSTRALIAN ASSOCIATED PRESS. LONDON, JUNE 4. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 13 June 1874

LATEST INTELLIGENCE. Reuter's telegrams to Australian Associated Press London, June 4. The Pope has suffered a relapse, attended with loss of appetite and slow fever. His physicians are alarmed. The German Press ridicules the idea of the candidature of a Prussian Prince for the Throne of Spain. The National Assembly of France is discussing concurrently Municipal and Electoral bills, which will have the effect of disfranchising three millions. London, June 6.   The Pope is better, and his medical advisers propose a change of air ; but his Holiness refuses to leave the Vatican. Money is easy. The corn market is unchanged. In the wool market competition continues to be extremely vigorous, and prices are very firm. 224,000 bales have been sold. The French demand is large, and home buyers are operating more freely. There has been a recovery in the copper market. Large sales of Chilian have been made at £77 to £78. The present cash quotations for Australian   cop...

Original Correspondence. OUR POLICE. (To the Editor of the " Burrowa News.") [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 13 June 1874

Original Correspondence OUR POLICE. (To the Editor of the "Burrowa News.")   Sir, — A letter, which appeared in the "Yass Courier" of the 2nd instant, signed 'Ichthus,' and complaining of the neglect of duty of our local police force, with your permission, demands some notice. The neglect, according to "Ichthus," consists   in permitting the transaction of business in some of the smaller shops, and the passage of teams through the township on Sundays. So far as this charge is concerned, I must say, with a good knowledge of the township, that it is "untrue"     that there is any such remarkable violation of the Lord's Day in Burrowa. Perhaps it is because I am not Pharasaical enough to see the mote in my brother's eye. Neither can I agree with "Ichthus" that it would be advisable to discharge our present police force. Mr. Hitch has, during his short time here, given evidence of zeal and ability. He does not seem to be a person who w...

A TERRIBL[?] STRANGE BE [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 13 June 1874

A TERRIBLY STRANGE BET The most difficult likeness I ever had to take, not even excepting my first attempt in the art of Portrait-painting was a likeness of a gentleman   named Faulkner. As far as drawing and colouring went, I had no particular fault to find with my picture; it was the expression of the sitter which   I had failed in rendering--a failure quite as much   his fault as mine. Mr. Faulkner, like many other persons by whom I have been employed, took it into his head that he must assume an expression, because he was sitting for his likeness ; and, in consequence, contrived to look as unlike himself as possible, while I was painting him. I had tried to divert his attention from his own face, by talking with him on all sorts of topics. We had both travelled a great deal, and felt interested alike in many subjects connected, with our wan- derings over the same countries. Occasionally, while, we were discussing our travelling ex- perience...

THE TICHBORNE TRIAL. THE CLOSING SCENE. (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 13 June 1874

THE TICHBORNE TRIAL. The closing scene. ('Concluded.') Now, gentleman, I have gone through all the ob- servations upon this case which I think necessary. I have tried to bring it before you, as I have said, as a great whole, satisfied that in that way only can it be satisfactorily dealt with. I have sought to lay before you all the facts connected with it, fairly, truthfully, and impartially, but nevertheless with a stern sense of duty which it was incum- bent upon me to perform. I have been assailed from without by abuse from critics who enter upon the inquiry with a foregone conclusion, and with a belief, I suppose that they know my busi- ness better than I do. I have been abused for placing the case before you, as it is said, from a partial and one-sided point of view. Gentlemen, I cannot invent facts, and with the utmost ingenuity, I cannot find explanations which have no reality in point of fact. In my opinion, a judge does not discharge his duty to content himself with being t...

The Smallest Engine in the World is said to be in the possession of Mr. John Penn, Greenwich. It will stand on a threepenny piece — the base plate measuring only 3-8ths by 3-lOths of an inch. Some of the parts are so small that a magnifying glass is required to see their shape. The weight of the model is less than that of a threepenny piece, and it works admirably, the crank-shaft performing from "twenty to thirty thousand re-   volutions in a minute." A Curious Calculation. — Suppose a man and a girl were married ; and, which is, of course, impossible, that at the time of the hymeneal contract the man was thirty-five years old and the girl five, which makes the man seven times as old as the girl. They lived together till the girl was ten — this makes him forty years old, and four times as old as the girl ; and they live until she is fifteen, the man being forty-five — this makes the man three times as old ; they still live, she is thirty years old — this makes the man ...
