SELECT POETRY. THE MIDNIGHT REVIEW OF NAPOLEON. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 18 December 1858
SELECT POETRY. THE MIDNIGHT REVIEW OF NAPOLEON. (FROM THE FCREIGN QUARTERLY REVIEW.) At midnight, from his grave, The drummer woke and rose; And beating loud the drum, Forth on his round he goes. Stirred by his fleshless arms, The drumsticks partly fall; He beats the loud retreat, Reveille-and roll-call. So strangely rolls that drum, So deep it echoes round; Old soldiers in their graves, Start to life at the sound. Both they in farthest north, Stiff in the ice that lay, And they who warm repose Beneath Italian clay. Below the mud of Nile, And 'neath Arabian sand - Their burial place they quit, And soon to arms they stand. And at midnight, from his grave, The trumpeter- arose, And, mouiited on his horse, A loud shrill blast he blows. On airy coursers then The cavalry are seen, Old squadrons erst renown'd, Gory and gash'd, I ween.] Beneath the casque their blanch'd skulls, Smile grim, and proud their air, As in their bony hands Their long sharp swords they bear. And at mignight from h...
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. A REMONSTRANCE IN BEHALF OF THE KIAMA THEOLOGICAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 18 December 1858
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. A REMONSTRANCE IN BEHALF OF THi KIAMA HIIEOLOGICAL SOCIETY. PER FAVOR OF THE KIAMA EXAMINER. LADIES AND GrENTLEMEN.-The first session r this society has just terminated. And as I regair such a society as highly beneficial, I cannot witneo the indifference of so many of you without seriou concern and deep regret. If it were a matter mere], personal or sectarian, I could well excuse your non attendance, but as it is a matter much more deepl; affecting your own well-being than niine, I cannoe quietly witness your somnolence without a friendl:. warning and advice. Recollect that you have n, meetings of a religious character in which there .i a free expression of opinion-a thing so necessar:K and so valuable. If your synagogues permitte: discussion, or several speakers, as the Jewish an,. Christian synagogues did, there would be no neces sity foi. our society, but in the.Absence of that mos rational system some such society as ours is indis pensible. I admit it i...
ILLAWARRA HOUSE ACADEMY.—HALF-YEARLY EXAMINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 18 December 1858
ILLA WAR.RA HOi0 USE A CADEMY.-HALF YEARLY BXAMINATION, ?In the present. state of public opinion on the subject-of education (when so many receive as an undis puted axiom, the duty of the state educating the people, without perceiving the beautiful influence which must follow any system of government interferance in the matter), it is gratifying to see our private school taking a firm stand, and vindicating both our right aid ability as Britons to educate ourselves without the state "perscri bing how much," or of what nature that education shall be. To-day Mr. Hustler held an examination of his pupils, at which. many of the parents and scholars, by his kind invitation were present. Mr. Hustler in a short address described his system of education, the success of which we were then to have the opportunity of testing. The examination then commenced, by the Masters Robert Black, Janes Poulton, and John al'I Robert Morris, being, called severally to read an essay upon a different line of...

NUMBA SABBATH SCHOOL.-O- U Sunday, the 5th instant, a school was opened in connexion with the Church at Numba, of which the Rev. J. H. Garven, A. M., is Pastor. The attendance, we understand, was large, and several respectable members of the congregation undertook the very responsible office of teachers. Mrs. Garven voluntarily offered her services, although the distance from her residence at Coolangatta is very considerable, having to cross the river. Arrangements are made to impart in struction regularly, and to render it interesting to the young. The school is placed under the superin tendance of Mr. Boyce, of Nowra, who has considel able experience for carrying out the system in ac cordance with the intentions of Mr. Garven and the members of the Church. The hours of attendance are 11 o'clock a.m., and 2 o'clock p.m., alternately. As the Church at Numba is in the centre of a large population, it is hoped that zeal ±and regularity will be manifested; and that parents will kindly ...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 18 December 1858
MISCELLANEOUS. GAs IN ROME, AND HONOUR TO SKILL.-We have before now noticed the satisfactory progress of the enterprise for lighting Rome with gas, and we learn with pleasure that his Holiness the Pope has named the indefatigable gerant and engineer of the com pany, Mr. James Shepherd, " Chevalier of the Order of Pio Nono." This is not the first occasion on which the Pope has evinced a warm interest in the success of this undertaking, and his appreciation of the energy of Mr. Shepherd, having, upon a visit to the gas-works some time ago, presented him with "a gold medal of the first class." We see in these acts a desire to do honor to English enterprise and English skill, which is very satisfactory--The Builder. How TO LIVE IN INDIA.-" I know but one re ceipt for good health in this country, and that is to live moderately, to drink little or no wine, to use exercise, to keep the mind employed, and, if possi ble, to keep in good humour with the world. The last is the most difficult, ...
HUMAN PETRIFACTION. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 18 December 1858
HUIMAN PETRIFACTION. - The Alta Cali fornia contains a strange, if true story, in a letter from a German =physician, Dr. Lichtcr berger, at Fort Langley, Frazer River, giving an account of the death of a miner by petrifac tion, consequent upon drinking a mineral fluid known' as water of crystallisation-a solution of silica-found in a geode or rounded mass of quartz, containing cavities lined with crystals, and varying in size from a few inches to some times a couple of feet in diameter. The quan tity of this liquid is usually so small that it has never attracted attention, but Ernest Flucter spiegel in striking the geode broke off a piece, leaving a cup, which, according to the state-. ment of his companion, contained half a pint of water. The unfortunate man swallowed it at a draught. In fifteen minutes he expired. Upon removing the body, and attempting properly to dispose of the limbs, an unusual rigidity was observed. In the course of two hours and a half the whole body became as...

A HOT WEATHER CAMPAIGN IN INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 18 December 1858
A HO1T WEATHER CAMPAIGN IN INDIA. The following is an extract from a letter dated Banda, 27th June, from an officer of a cavalry regiment attached to the division of General Whitlock, forming a part of the Central Indian army :-" I wrote to R- the end of last month, and told him we expected to march, and so we did on the 2nd of June, not to Cal pee, but to a place called Terroan, about fifty miles from hence, wh?ere the Rajah had collected a very large body o men and refused to dis -band them.. The , dy swe- were in tents o hbn d. i__ men.- _.5ht toh hn.pctn.1a .inseni ibe from the hea and one of them died that evening; he sa fine strong man, quite well in the morning and in my troop. So, as we marched at twelve o'clock that night, I buried him at eleven o'clock in a hastily dug grave under a tree; the others, with men of the other regiments to the number of 27, were sent back to Banda that night, and this is the way Englishmen are beinig sown all about the country, for there is sca...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 18 December 1858
The County Courts Bill is at length the law of the land. Justice is to be administered at our 'doors; and the long array of trouble, cost, vexa tion, and loss of time, swept away. Notwith standing the probably increased evil of addititional attornies and lawyers at each court, .with their wearying speeches, strained technicalities, and quibbles, we expect the several communities will derive much benefit from this long-sought for and long-postponed administration of justice being at length facilitated; our only fear is that the proximity of these law courts will promote litiga tion in all the unsocial war-elements, and mutual strife of vexatious suits, in which, like the monkey settling the dispute between the two cats, the suitors will get the shell, and the lawyers the sub stance. The good or the evil which society shall derive from this easy access to what we hope will be cheap, not nasty law, will entirely depend upon the good sense of those who, having some slight cause of dispu...

EXTRAORDINARY CAREER OF BORROMEO, THE BIGAMIST. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 18 December 1858
EXTRAORDINARY CAREER OF BORR O MEO, THE BI GAMIST. The career of Alexander Charles Tucker, alias Marco Emile de St. Hiliare, alias Marquise de St. Hilaire, &lias Alessandro Vittaliano Borro meo, M. D., X. A., " one of the elect Counts of , the Holy Roman Empire in the Pontifical degree," heir apparent to the Due de Garribaldi, lecturer on mesmerism, "stump orator," and candidate for the town council of Bradford, has come to an ignominious end-namely, four years' penal servitude. The fate of this man " points the moral," as no dou.bt'it will adorn a tale of treachery and woe in the future. At all events it should be a warning to weak young women to avoid persons of:whom they know nothing, how ever plausible may be the manners and pleasing the appearance of such persons ; and not to unite their fate with any man before they have had some acquaintance with his private history and character. Charles Alexander Tucker was the third son in a family of five, all of whom are living. ...
DISTRICT COURTS. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 18 December 1858
DISTRICT COURTS. On Friday 10th, a supplement to the Gazette .states the places where. these courts-are to be holden, and that the colony is to be divided into five districts. We extract that division which refers to the coast, namely, the Cumberland or Coast District : II. The Cumberland and Coast District, com prising the police district of Berrima, Bombala, Braidwood, Broulee, Camden Narellan, and Picton, Campbelltown, Cooma, E den, Kiama, Paramatta, Liverpool, Penrith, Shoalhaven, Windsor, and Wol longong.

Parramatta, Penrith, Picton, Windsor, and Wollongong. We should like to be informed what offence Shoalhaven has committed, that it is not enumer ated amongst the places where a Court is to be holden ; that district is surely as well eutitled as places of much less note, wh...
