PROGRESS OF AUSTRALIAN EXPLORATION. THE DISCOVERY BY STURT OF THE DARLING AND THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 20 October 1866

PROGRESS OF AUSTRALIAN EX PLORATION. THE DISCOVERY BY STURT OF THE DABLING AND TIIE MURRAY. The Weekly Empire (Sydney) is publishing a series of chapters on Australian Discovery and Colonization, from which we extract the following as being peculiarly interesting to the people of this district : — Several of the men who were with Capt. Slurt on his first expedition accompanied him on the next occasion ; but the place of Mr. Hume, his former second in command, was now supplied by Mr. George Macleay, son of Mr. Alexander Macleay, the then Colonial Secretary. The party reached an out-station on the borders of Lake George on the ISth November, and from thence continued their route to the Murrumbidgce by way of Yass Plains and the Tumut. They found the river abounding in fish, and the scenery on its banks of the most beautiful description. As they advanced the general course of the river proved to be N.W. by W., and the country gradually assumed many of the characteristics of the more no...

VISIT TO A QUEENSLAND COTTON PLANTATION, f From Once a Wcdc ] SittingT as I now do, in a comfortably fur tHEhed English drawingroom, with a fireblazing cheerfully before me, it seems difficult to realize Ihe fact that but one short year ago I was dwel ling in the Australian Wilds, exposed to the heat of a nearly tropical sun, debarred from the delights of society, and undergoing the various privations of busk life. And yet I can now look back with pleasure on many a day that was then joyless and wearisome ! Some days I remember with d«lisriit_ esrjeclallv those spent on the Logan Cotton Plantation. On March 7th, 1865, in company with my brother, I rode to a little store about three miles distant from our home ; it was one of those fiery autumnal days common to Austra l/a ,- the air was still, but seemed to quiver, the busy ants had sought the shelter of their hills, and only the lithe lizard, the locust, and grasshopper braved the burning ray. As we descended, the sandy slope leadin...

It is too soon to expect briskness in trade ; that matters do not become worse is a sufficient prcof that the The Moonta has declared another dividend of £5 per share. Several persons since my last have come to grief through their dabbling in mines. Mr. Wearing1, the Crown Solicitor, has escaped very weil.

THE FIRST DOWNWARD STEP. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 27 October 1866

THE FIRST DOWNWARD STEP. fFrom Good Words.] In most instances it appears impossible to detect the exact line of demarcation which separates the wilful irregularity from an act of positive dishonesty — with such subtlety do they ofttimes run into each other. All the oases we have collected show that at the commencement the prisoners did not intend to wrong those who had placed confidence in them ; and even after their first downward step bad been taken, many of them would have revolted at the idea of committing an act of dishonesty ; and yet all gene rally end in being thieves or forgers. It is sin gular to remark how seldom genuine poverty seems to Dave urged them to the crime they Bad committed. In almost every case it has been a love of luxury and dissipation, or the equally dangerous wish to imitate the bearing and style of life of those, richer than themselves. A singular fatality also seems to attend them in this respect, that the money they become dishonestly possessed of appe...
