MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 29 October 1859
MELBOURNE. The O'Shanassy Ministry had re signed, in consequence of the amend ment to thile address having been carried by a majority of 56 to I7. Great indignation was expressed against Mr. O'Shanassy and Dr. Evans for making public some private tele grams with reference to the Admella. It is said that they acted under the advice of the Attorney-General. 1Mir. Nicholson had undertaken to form a Ministry, but was experiencing more difficulty than. had been antici pated. Mr. Duffy had refused to join Mr. Nieholson, and the only names that could be relied on were those of J. C. King, Wood, and McCulloch. The three men who robbed the Deniliquin Bank. were in custody at Echuca. Konnecke, the foreigner who mur dered Mr. Orombie, had been remanded for trial to Melbourne from Ballarat.

General Epitome of News. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 29 October 1859
Gencal. pitomne of AJelD0 TIr, great event of public interest has been the ministerial crisis, though from the fre quency with which these affairs recur, it is natural to .suppose that they will shortly be regarded as simply matters of every-day life. In the year 1848,.when all the thrones in Eu. rope were tottering, Po?clh complained bitterly that his editorial labours were constantly being disturbed by the announcement "Please, sir, here's a boy come with another Revolution ;" we may well complain in like manner if a ministerial crisis takes the per manent form amongst us of a "monthly peri odical." The resignation of ministers took place on Thursday the 20th, in consequence. of the division of 56 to 8 against them on the second reading of the Education Bill. His Excellency after receiving the resigna. tions of Mr. Cowper and his colleagues, sent for Mr. Hay, but that gentleman declined the responjsility of forming a ministry, and Mr. Jones was accordingly called upon to do so by ...

The first sale of town and suburban lots in the above township took place on Tuesday and Wednesday, the 11th and 12th instant, at the Murrumbidgee Punt Hotel: Land Agent, Mr. Charles A. Sinclair, Clerk of Petty Ses sions, Hay. The result of the two days' sale, as subjoined, demonstrates the flourishing and promising condition of this important outpost. It will be seen that one suburban lot of 6a. Ir. dp. fetched as high as £50 per acre, and one town lot, of half an acre, over £80 for the lot. Of the lots offered for sale, only one lot was not sold. The total amount realised was £2027 10s. Parties from the Lachlan and Murrumbidgee rivers, Denili quin, Wagga Wagga, and other places, at tended the sale-and became purchasers.

3Local Inrtell~igeace. SERIOUS ACCIDENT TO TIlE GUN DAGAI MAIL. -- A PASSENGERX KILLED. We regret to announce a very serious acci dent that happened to the Gundagai mail on Monday last. The passengers upon it were Mr. S.tuckey (nephew of Mr. HIenry and the late Mr. Peter Stuckey), Mr. BIuffrcey, and George Nye, a one-legged mainman on another part of the road, who .was going to attend the Sessions as a witness, the driver at the time being a young man known as " Navvy Jack.', , As far as we can gather the particulars, the off wheel of the mail-cart went into a deep hole, about eight miles the other side of Bootes' inn., and the jerk broke the iron splinter bar of the out-rigger, slewed the cart against a sapling on the opposite side, and threw the passengers out, and the wheel then passed over the body of Mr. Stuckey, who was a veTry corpulent man and who w?as'sit ting on the front sent. This unfortunate gentleman was so much hurt as to be unable to proceed, and he was accordingly p...
THE HIGHEST TYPE OF THE BRUTE CREATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 29 October 1859
T1I? IroHEST TYfS OF THE BRUTE S CREATION. ('From All the Year Bolud.) 'The gorilla is of the average height of man, five feet six inches; his brain case is low and narrow, and, as the fore part of the skull is very high, and here is a very prominent ridge above ie eyes, the top of the head is per ictly flat, and the brow, with its thick 'egument, forms a "scowling pent .se over the eyes." 'Couple with A ,a deep lead coloured skin, much '-:led, and a prominent jaw, with t anine teeth (in the males) of huge size, a receding chin, and we have an exaggeration of the lowest and most forbidding type of human physiog nomy.

DENILIQUIN. THE ROBBERY OF THE BANK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 29 October 1859
- L- - l DENILIQUIN. S[PRoMs OUR OWN coRRESPONDENT.] THE ROBBERY OF TIHE BANK. A most daring outrage was perpetrated at Deniliquin, on Saturday week by three armed men wearing masks, and other wise disguised who stuck up the Manager, Acting Accountant, and servant girl, and robbed the Bank safe of £7900. The parti celars of the ease are as follow: about eight o'clock in the evening while Mr. Millar, the Manager, was in the sitting room, which is situated about three paces from the Banking Office, he heard a scream proceeding from the kitchsn, and npon going to ascertain the cause he saw, as he passed the Banking Ofice door, a man leaning over the counter facing MIr. White the Accountant. Mr. Millar thought it was one of the aboriginal blacks and went round the counter, when he saw a pistol pointed at Mr. 'White's head. Mr. Millar then learnt the reason of the scream ing and immediately turned round to get his firearms, when a second man pointed a pistol at his head threatening to bl...

LATEST INTELLIGENCE. SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 29 October 1859
LATEST INTELLIGENOE. SYDNEY. The political crisis was the all absorbing subject. The La Hogie and British Mcr chant had arrived, after makling fine passages, from England. Both vessels, in addition to numerous. passengers and general cargoes of Merchandize, bring valuable augmentations to our stock in the shape of horses, cattle, and sheep. Two enormous alligators had been brought to Sydney from Rockhamp ton, one of them being 12 feet in length and 5 in circumference. The foundation-stone of a new church had been laid by thile Bishop of Sydney at Burwood. Mr. Milford is in the field for the representation of Illawarra in opposi tion to Mr. Gordon, with, however, slender chance of success. Flour was quoted at £23 per ton.

THE" POLITICAT FIX, To those who have watched the poll tical horizon with anything like atten tion during the past few. weeks the second Ministerial Crisis within the &.ssion was no matter of astonishment. The parliamentary barometer, of which the indicator is to be found in the legislative Assemblv, had for some 4iars past been pointing steadily to " Stormy," and it was clear that even Mr. Cowpefs ingenuity and good luck combined must fail to bring the " vessel of the state" in safety from the position she was placed in. The evil day had been postponed till it could be put off no longer; the system of dealing in vague generalities, and anld evasive replies, was fast drawing to a close, and it was clear that, let their hands be what they might, the Ministers were bound to play a card of some sort. The glorious victory achieved'on the occasion of Mr. Mar tin's celebrated motions,-~when the .Cowper allied forces proved that their .powers' of physical endurance were "equal -to ...
