AUSTRALIA'S GREATEST EXPLORER AND HIS WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 December 1926

AUSTRALIA'S GREATEST EXPLORER AND HIS WORKS. By Edna Williams. Edward John Eyre was born in Yorkshire in 1815. He was a fine bushman, fond of ad- venture, brave, and above all, resolute. He was also one of the first men to travel with stock into South Australia, along the Murray River. In 1838 he explored the country between Lake Hindmarsh and the Wimmera River, but finally settled down in Adelaide. South Aus- tralia was inhabited in the southern and east ern portions, but nothing was known about the north. So the people were anxious to as- certain what the country was like, and to see whether a good route to the west could be found. With this project in view, an Ex- ploration Company was formed. Eyre offered to lead an expedition north to find a central route across Australia, and his offer was ac- cepted. In 1840 the expedition set out, head- ed by Eyre, carrying a Union Jack to plant in the heart of Australia. The party first kept along the foot of the Flinders Range, and then fo...

EARLY CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 December 1926

EARLY CANBERRA. Miss E. S. Moore, cf Caulfield (V.), asks us to correct an error in our October issue. It was stated that Mr. P. T. Moore, the only sur- viving child, of the first marriage, left three sons and three daughters, of whom only one son (Leslie), and one daughter (Jean) married, and that Leslie left two sons and two daugh- ters, the latter being the only descendants of Joshua John Moore bearing the family name. "This is not quite correct/' writes Miss Moore. "My brother Leslie died unmarried, and the living descendants bearing the family name are my two brothers, William and John, my sister, Florence, and myself." And she adds:-"My sister and I feel ever grateful to you for letting the fact be widely known that the late Lieut. J. J. Moore was the first owner of the land where the Federal Capital is being built. People in Victoria think there was never anyone over in that part of the country but the Campbell family. They have been wonderfully good people, but they were nut...

Captain Cook - His Last Days and Death Some new lights on the events of 1778 and 1779, which led up to Captain Cook's death in Hawaii, in February, 1779 BY THE HON. SIR JOSEPH CARRUTHERS, K.C M.G. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. [FOREWORD BY THE EDITOR: Sir Joseph Carruthers is so well known in Australia that he hardly needs an introduc- tion. He was one of the founders of the Com- monwealth, and one of the elected fifty men who framed its Constitution. As Premier of New South Wales, he offered the site of the Federal Capital Territory to the Common- wealth Government, Canberra being, in his opinion, the best site for the capital in New South Wales. In conjunction with the Fed- eral Government, he succeeded in finalising the selection of Canberra as the capital. An intense admirer of Captain James Cook, R.N., whom he regards as the Founder of Aus- tralia, Sir Joseph Carruthers has devoted years to the study of Cook's life and work. When Minister for Lands in 1895-1900, he re- served Kurnell, a...

Canberra's Christmas [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 December 1926

Canberra's Christmas BY MABEL JUST BRENNAN. Christmas at Canberra! Her first real Christmas ! But a few years ago at Christmas Santa Claus, poising above Canberra in his flight to homes where eager hearts waited his coming, saw only waving, seorched-flour colored grassed paddocks. Last year he saw the skeleton foundations of the homes-to-be, and his heart was gladdened. But his task then was a light one! This year his cheery old face wears a broader grin than ever before, and he doesn't mind that his fur-trimmed crimson robes are unsuitable to the climate. He rejoices that he has so many more new chimneys to visit, with, he hopes, every year more and more little Australians waiting eagerly at the hearths for his advent. To him Canberra is one more port of call in the great and glorious British Empire. Older nations with their capital cities shiver- ing beneath their mantles of snow must sure- ly envy this youngest city that it celebrates that other birth which marked the new era of ...

McCaudle at the Wool Table (Continued from last Issue.) [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 December 1926

McCaudle at the Wool - Table BY YARRUM. (Continued from last Issue.) To wool men there is no better atmosphere than a busy shearing shed. The odour of wool-yoke pervades the air; the rattle, rattle, rattle of the hoofs of the sheep in the crowded catching-pens, sweating pens, and race, where sheep are crowded in to be shorn; the click, click, click, of the shears in the old "blade" shearing days, or the noisy whirr and purr of the shearing machines as they plough their way and toss the wool from wethers' ribs; the whistling tar-boy, as, with tar stick in hand, ht jumps to tar a spot where the pelt has left to go with the wool. The "wool away!" call of the shearer to the picker-up, or the patter of the feet of the pickers-up as they hurry to the wool-table with the fleece, and with a deft movement throw it one end forward, and holding the other, spread it on the wool-table, like a blanket, there to be skirted, neck, breech, and sides, then rolled into a ball, tied with its own staple...

McCaudle- The Roamer AT THE DROVERS' CAMP FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 17 January 1927

McCaudle - The Roamer AT THE DROVERS' CAMP FIRS. By "YARRUM." Before the wool-classing incident in the life of McCaudle "The Roamer," described in the two previous issues, the droving episode I am about to relate occurred and "long, lean, and wiry McCaudle" was the leading character. It was a happy, care-free, well equipped, set of young stockmen who, with 12,000 sheep, started from Balandoolie, just over the Queensland border to face the tra- velling stock route to the Bogan River in New South Wales. No matter what year-it was in the days Adam Lindsay Gordon, eulogised : "When the longest day was never then too hard." Young as I was, I was given charge of the stock and the trip. For the benefit of the uninitiated, allow me briefly to explain some of the main points in droving. Most writers and poets dealing with a drover's life and a droving trip, make the droving trip the re- sult of a merciless drought or a devastating bush fire. True, many were caused by these calamities, but in...

THE AULD KIRK. From Narrative of the Settlement of Scots Church, Sydney, New South Wales. Published 1828. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 17 January 1927

THE AULD KIRK. From Narrative of the Settlement of Scots Church, Sydney, New South Wales. By John Dunmore Lang, D.D. Published 1828. On the title page appears the following quotation : "We most constantly believe that God hath preserved, instructed, honored, decorded, and, from Death called to Life, His Kirk in all ages."-From Old Scottish Confession of Faith, A.D., 1560. Printed at Sydney by A. Hill, George Street. Dr. Lang wrote in his introduction: "The planting of a Scots Church in this re mote corner of the world may not be regarded as a matter of sufficient importance to call for an historical account of its rise and progress. ... It derives a strong though adventitious interest from the circumstance of its being the first in connection with the Church of Scotland that was ever planted in the Southern Hemisphere, and from its geographical situa- tion on the coast of a vast island, whose popu- lation promises to increase to an indefinite amount and which is seemingly destined b...

MR. FRANK WALKER, J P., F.R.A.H.S. One of the Founders of the Royal Australian Historical Society. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 17 January 1927

MR. FRANK WALKER, J P., F R A H.S. One of the Founders of the Royal Australian Historical Society. Mr. Frank Walker was born at South Yarra, Victoria, in 1801, and came to reside per- manently in Sydney in 1885. He always showed a keen interest in history, and made an early start in the collection of Australian historical data, which now is of immense value to him. Feeling' that Australians in general should know more of their own coun try, he, in company with other kindred spirits, set about the formation of an Australian His- torical Society, which after several ups and downs at last came into being in the year 1901. He became a member of its first Council, and for a period of ten years held the position of honorary treasurer. He was elected presi- dent in the year 1912, and the following year was again returned to office. In the latter year he was appointed president of the Blue Mountains Centenary Committee, which later on carried out to a successful conclusion the celebration o...

A TYSON STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 17 January 1927

A TYSON STORY. Here's a story about Jimmy Tyson, and I am sure it is original (writes "Sundowner"). It was told me by an old man who once worked on one of Tyson's stations. A new chum (of the colonial experience variety) had obtained a job on the station, and was a rather conceited fellow. Whenever a chance offered he boasted of the way he could speak the English language, also of his ability to read, write and spell any word that was shown to him. As Tyson happened to pass one night when the boasting was in progress he decided to take the new chum down a peg. "Can you write a few lines at my dictation?" he asked. ''Certainly, sir," said the man with a smile. "I don't think you can," replied Tyson. "In fact I'm willing to bet you £5 that you cannot do so." The bet was accepted, and Tyson pro- ceeded to dictate, while the new chum, having procured paper and pencil, wrote it down. "The man entered his sulky. Got that?" be- gan Tyson. "Yes, sir." "Gathered up the reins," continued Tyso...
