STONEY CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 11 August 1856

STONEY CREEK. : ?(' From the Bathurst Free Press. Auaust 2. Wo have received the following -intelligence from Mr. Jbse.p'K Windrod in a letter dated Tuesday, July 29th : — A sad affair occurred hera last night, which terminated in the death of one person, and may probably prove fatal to another. A young man named George Btiii(-ley, who has been married 'but four months, and has -been on tins held bm a few days, having reason to suspect his wife's fidelity, went home and cut her throat and his own afterwards; the woman died immediately, but there aro hopes of the man's recovery. Another poor fellew, who was unwell for two days, died last night and was buried to-day. Owing to the want of any Commissioner or police, society hero is in a vory disorderly suite, many employing themselves on Sunday, gambling tho whole day. The diggers are, however, very honest among thejiisthves, very few cases of robbery having as yet taken plncc. , The number of fresh arrivals increases daily. Many fooli...

THE MINISTERIAL STATEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 11 August 1856

. THE MINISTERIAL STATEMENT. Wubn the present Premier was re-elected a member of the Legis lative Assembly, we predicted he would bo found deficient in ability and experience us a practical legislator. We did so relying on our knowledge of his conduct in the former Councils, and were :,. , not actuated fry any party or personal motive. We had heard ? borne, arid read many, of his speeches,, and from- those we drew our 1 : conclusions, for he has' placed no. law oa the statute book, from . which wo might be enabled to deduce any evidence of his posses sion of those qualities we have a right to look for in a person '.-aspiring to the office lie now' holds. It is a lamentable fact, that the result of hia first effort has fully realized our fears and pre dictions. He has disappointed the hopes of his friends, and ? , laid, bare at once his own incapacity. He has saved 'his honourable friends on the opposite side of the House,' the trouble -#f making1 evident his incompotency. He has ant...

THE NIGHTINGALE FUND. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 11 August 1856

THE NIGHTINGALE FUND. The brief but sanguinary struggle recently terminated has not, like most previous wars, produced a single General of pre-eminent distinction. It has not developed in any one m«n those faculties which are the indispensible reqnisites of a groat commander : acute and decisive judgment, cool and daring- bravery, ceaseless and untiring energies. Our feelings of disappointment and regret on this account are in some measure' allayed when wo remember the indomitable courage, and patient pndimince, of our forces. However fruitless the past struggle has been in the production of one 'muu ' svhb cbiinis to be recognised more honourably than hie conipanibns-in-arnis, it certainly has produced a ' woman ' whoso great sacrifices and sorvices must command at once our admiration, our thanks, and our gratitude. Her heroic charity has, in tho course of a few mouths, rendered her name ' a household word.' That woman is Flouence Nigutixgalk. Her fame has already penetrated ail jw...

THE PHILOSOPHY OF DRUNKENNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 11 August 1856

THE PHILOSOPHY OF DRUNKENNESS. (From the Spectator.) [? There are degrees in drunkenness, and also varieties; and physiology has been brought to bear upon the subject from a high quarter, in a manner that must tend greatly to the relief of per sons Unhappily overtaken. When the stomach is empty ' a single .'glass of ardent spirits would produce an ofloot of depriving u per son—not at all of the use of his senses, but of ' the steady use of his legs ' ; it would be ' still more fully so in the case of a verti ' ginous subject.' The experiment has been tried upon persons 'capable of taking as large a quantity of wine as almost anybody,' namely, an ecclesiastical judge and a clergyman, The liability to : be effected is increased by long exposure*to fatigue or exorcise — ' after shooting or hunting ; and then a single glass of cherry brandy ' will make the party ' unable to sit on horseback for a quarter of an hour.' This lecture upon the exhibition of alcoholics in verti ginous subject...

That case involves damages to the amount of three hundred pounds sterling, with additional law costs of probably another hundred, awarded' by a Dublin jury to a vmmcr kdv. as a recomnense for the sad disappointment she must have Endured, of course, in not fortunately obtaining the hai.d and heart of an elderly gentlemnn, who, in the very midst of his^as de fascination, was, alas! prevented from carrying out his tender suit, through an unforeseen visitation, by a severe affliction, re sulting in apoplexy and paralysis, and other ills which the flesh is heir to. .
