DISTRICT INTELLIGENCE. GERRINGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 10 December 1859
DISTRICT INTELLIGENCE. S (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.) GERRINGONG. Through some unaccouatable delay, the broken bridge rI have 'twice spoken of, has not been repaired; anld now it has been, la I expected, the scene of an accident, which, however, thanks to a protecting Providence, has not caused the loss of lifŽ, as it might have done. As Mr. Christie was riding across it on last Saturday, his horseo's feet went through one of the numerous holes, and in his violent eflborts to extricate himself, throw the rider, who pitched on his face. He was deprived of conscious ness for some minllutes, and his cheek, e?s, iand Inose, were severely hurt. Perhaps this will hasten the work. I most cordially second the remarks from your Jamberoo correspondent concerning the dog nuisance, as I have had personal experience of the danger, and 1 know ofone being thrown by it, and of many being nearly so. If there are no police regulations on the suebject, the Muni cipal Council ought to take some preventiv...
DR. FARR ON DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 10 December 1859
DR. PARR ON DISEASE. " A blue-book, recently issued from the office of the Registrar-General, contains in its ap pendix a valuable paper from the prolific pen of Dr. William Farr, on "The Causes of Death in England" (in the year 1857), from which we make the following extracts : The mortality of 1856 was unusually low; the slight increase of deaths noticeable in 1857 was chiefly due to diarrhoea and to bronchitis, induced probably by influenza. The tempera ture of 1857 was distinguished by a general elevation at all the stations. The heat was in tense in June, and the 28th of that month was the hottest day observed since 1846. August was the hottest month on record. The wind is a most important sanitary ele ment; it brings and carries away the organic elements which are the seeds (sometimes) of zymotic (epidemic, endemic, and contagious) diseases. Heat and stagnant air are both favor able to the development and prevalence of the diarrhmoas, which were unusually fatal, and tend, perh...

Moved by Councillor Moles Mliat the enai of £700 propose to be expended oa- thl ronads of the Municipality, be appropriated as nearly as possiblu In the following manner, viv.:-For Improvement of Addison-streot, £170; the road from the township and through Condon's Swamp, £100: road through Barrack Swamp, £50; .Macnquarliu roads, £270; from Dllon's slip-rails to the bottom of Lolsing 1ll1, £50. Councillor Molessuid he had no doubt buit that the Mnnicinpality would soon be divided into wards; and it was only fail ,that the Council should appropriate the revenue in an equitable proportion to each portion of the Municipality, just as much so as if at the present time it 'was divided into wards. At the same time, itshould be borne in mind that the harbor and the roads immedi ately approaching it, had a greater share of wear.and tear, and were much more used by all the.resident...
FEMALE COMPENSATION. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 10 December 1859
FEMALE COMPENBATION.-Woman is not allowcd a vote, and the consequence is, that she tries all she can to influence as much as possible the votes of others. The strongest argument that we know of in favor of vote by ballot is, that it is likely to protect the husband from the wife. Many a free and independent elector has abstained from *voting altogether, because he has not dared, in consequence of female intimidation, to call his vote his own. Punc?h.
JAMBEROO. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 10 December 1859
JAMBEROO. Nothing very remarkable has ooluroed since my last letter waswritten to disturb tl;o oven tenor of the his tory of the settlement of JAumbcroo, or to afford your puzzled correspondent the sublject for a communication of any respectable length. I'Peopl continue, as usual to eat and drink (withmoro or less moderation); to marry, and to be given in marriago (with more or less celat) ; to buy and to sell by auction and othornise (with more or less advantage); but licave hoard of no extraordinary phenomena, natuoral or otherwise ; no sudden deaths-no overgrown snakes-no fires, no "nothing." The weather, which I mention as a mere matter of course, has continued very changeable; at present it is of that nature in which it is a pleasure to exist. Harvest operations are in progress ; and there will, no doubt, be great itfforeeces in the character of the crops, the late rains having come almost too late for those which were down in high and dry localities.
MACQUARIE RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 10 December 1859
S HACQUARIE RIVEIR. InPaovRmCaTS.-lmprovements are goinig on here rapidly, in the shape of clearing, for these last few years. In the Yellow Rock direction, industry is doing wonders, andt any of those laud monopolists, or those'who wink at land monopoly, might be convineed-if it wore possible to convince them-of the stand=still tendency of their much-loved, darling system bytthe illustrating contrast they might find here. Hero are, and have been, thou. sands of acres ot land-God's grant to mankind, but man's grant to a man-in the possession of one person for some twenty years, without yiolding profit either to the proprietor or to the commlunty. A great portion of it is still in the same state that Nature left it, and the proprietor found it; and on the other hand, here are a few hundred acres, more hilly, of a far worse description, situated farther back front the harbor, keeping a numbler of fiamnilies in at state of independence and competence, simlply because those families bei...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 10 December 1859
It-will be perceived from the summary of our Pirliamentary intelligence, that.the gon tlcmcn forniing, our Ministry have entered fully upon their onerous and arduous duties; and it is to be hoped that all waspishness, snaplpishness, and obstructionism may be cast away,. and the whole Senate collectively come forward and aid the Ministry with their advice anid support; We think the members of the 'Assembly are bound by their duty to their constituents, and love to their country, to do this. The electors have been disgusted with the mode heretofore adopted in the House, by members finding fault, merely for the sa ke of showing themselves smart follows. The defects and errors in our laws-often ungrammatical and preposterously absurd-a few words 'nulli fying whole sections, and giving them quite a different sense to what was at first intended arise mainly from their being altered and amended under excited feelings. The picture, however perfect when it enters the House, hav ing received ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 10 December 1859
S?0 THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA EXAMINER. SSr,-Allow me a small space in your valuable journal to pass a few remarks on the Iiftwarra Mercury correspondent hero, in rconeoion with the paper war as he styles it, between Romanus and Boots. In the first place, beg to state, that I am not acquainted with any IhdivIdual hearing the name of Boots--therefore I will be tbe more likely to give an mpartial opinion between the corre spondent and that individual. And as the IRiauwarra orerury has very unjustly declined printing anything further bearing on the subject, and as that paper has given their eorrespondent a decided adnantage (if hI had been alhi to take advantage of It), by allowing him two letters for one from Boots, I must request of you to give me room to state my views on this subject. Tho correspondent's letters certainly display a ovast amount of superior talent. Nevertheless, I cannot come to the coelusion that he had any right to ioterfere between Itomanus and Boots, more particul...
