TRIAL OF GARDINER, THE BUSHRANGER, FOR SHOOTING HOSIE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 July 1864

TRIAL OF GARDINER, THE BUSHRANGER, FOR SHOOTING HOSIE. On Thursday, the 7th inst., the trial of Francis Gardiner, alias -Clarke, alias Christy, who had previously pleaded guilty to two charges of highway robbery under arms, was indicted for having at Fish Paver, on the 16th July, 1861, feloniously wounded William Hosie, with intent thereby to kill and murder him ; a second count charged the prisoner with intent to do grievous bodily harm. The prisoner pleaded, " Not guilty," and was -defended by Messrs. Isaacs and Dalley. Messrs. Middleton, Hosie, Beardmore, and Drs. Rowland and Taylor, were examined in support of the charges ; their evidence was merely a reiteration of that given on the former trial (pub- lished in our last). Constable Paget, of Goulburn, gave evidence of Gardiner's -conviction, on the 17th March, 1854, at Goulburn, on two ?charges of horse-stealing. John Budd, Clerk of the Executive Council, deposed to the authenticity of the Governor's signature attached to the c...

FLOOD AT WINDSOR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 July 1864

FLOOD AT ^.WINDSOR. LAST Thursday' evening, . June - 9,;" everyone was ¡thppeñiiythat the.weather had cleared up, for affiner night we had not seen' for some time ; the stars shone brightly, and a keen frost-like air was "blowing. Our surprise may be imagined, when rising on Friday morning, to find-all our hopes dispelled-a slow, drizzling rain was failing, and. the clouds .required no weather Murphy to interpret their dull aspect. About midday it increased in violence, and rained, I might almost say; all night. Saturday came, but no cessation of the wet ; the consequence has been the flooding of the River Hawkesbury arid South Creek,;" and in-the recollection of the "oldest inhabitant" nothing has been seen like it, the waters being higher than in 1819. The rains of the previous week Laving saturated the ground rendered it -probable that, if the rain continued to fall, a flood might ensue; still rio. great alarm was experienced. Yet silently the mischief' was .working, and Sunday m...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 July 1864

VICTORIA. Woods, Carver, Phillips and Anderson, the four ruffians who   attempted to rob the English and Scottish Bank, Collingwood,   have been captured by the detective police, identified by Messrs.   Grut and Dowling, and committed for trial.   The general elections are exciting considerable interest ; there,   is no lack of candidates, whatever there may be of the cash   deposits necessary to complete the formalities of the nomina-   tions. The Hon. Richard Heales, ex-Premier and late Minister for   Lands, died on the 19th ult. ; his funeral, which took place on   the 23rd, was the largest ever known in the colony, was at- tended by the Governor, the Judges, the Ministry, and a large number of the leading colonists. Mr. Heales was an old resi- dent of Melbourne, of unblemished integrity in his commercial transactions. consistent in his parliamentary career, a self-made man, wh...

DARING ATTEMPT TO STICK UP A BANK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 July 1864

; DARING ATTEMPT TO STICK UP A BANK. 7 ON the ; morning of Tuesday, 14th June, an audacious attempt -was made to rob the English, .? Scottish, and Australian Chartered Batik, at Collingwood, victoria. Shortly after 10 A.M., three men- entered tkë bank, one making for the manager'^ door, and another for the ledger-keeper's desk. Both were armed with loaded pistols. The other probably was stationed at the door by way of guard and sentinel. Mr. Dowling, the manager, was standing at the counter counting silver. The only person besides himself present in the bank was Mr. Grut, the ledger keeper, who was athis desk outside the counter, in that portion of the apartment alloted to the public. Mr. Dowling observing the man going towards his room, left the counter, and met him at the door. Struck with the peculiarity of his appearance, and instinctively apprehending the felonious designs of his visitor, Mr. Dowling at once collared him.

GOVERNOR PHILLIP'S HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 July 1864

"GOVERNMENT HOUSE" IN THE DAYS OF GOVERNOR PHILLIP         GOVERNOR PHILLIP'S HOUSE. No persons who of late years have passed through Pitt-street   can have failed in remarking a ricketty-looking shanty, situate   a few doors from the Union Bank, between King-street and Hunter-street. The dimensions of the building were about 24ft. by 12ft., and about 6ft. high - it was, however, only a few weeks ago, when the place was about to be pulled down, that the fact became generally known that this humble tenement was once the Government House of the Colony, having been erected for Governor Phillip in 1791 (about three years after the arrival of the first fleet), who resided there until his departure from the Colony in December, 1792. What a contrast between the resi- dence of the then Representative of the Crown and the Vice- Regal mansion of the present day! -what changes have occurred since the foundations of t...

THE ALPACAS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 July 1864

THE ALPACAS. THE flock of alpacas, the collec- tion of which cost Mr. Ledger so many years of toil and privation, were brought to the hammer on the 23rd of June. The Governor, the Premier, the Minister f or Lands, and about 150 persons were pre- sent ; there were a few buyers, and the bidding was very languid, and only about twenty of the animals were sold, and the bal- ance were withdrawn at the re- serve placed on them by order of the Govenor. Two lots have since been disposed of privately, five to the Victorian Acclimatisa- tion Society, at £30 each, and five to the New Zealand Acclimatisation Society, at the same figure. Mr. Wilson stated, some time ago, in the Assembly, that a sum of about £5,000 had been offered for the flock; why this has not been accepted is incomprehensible. Surely, if any tangible benefit was or is to be gained by the introduction of those animals, it is more,likely to be attained by keeping them in one lot for some years, so that by judicious crossing the...

NARDOO. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 July 1864

NARDOO.     OUR engraving represents that singular plant, the nardoo of the Cooper's Creek natives. It will be remembered that on the return of the explorers, Burke, Wills, and King, to the depot at Cooper's Creek, on finding it deserted and themselves too     weak, to overtake the depot party, the natives supplied them with cakes of nardoo, formed from the collected sporocarps (wrongly termed seeds), beaten into paste and baked in the ashes. The plant is the marsilea of botanists, and is not uncommon in Great Britain. It is solely due to this plant that King, the only survivor, was able to sustain himself for several months, until discovered by Howitt. King's narra- tive says, " We had not gone far before we came on a flat, where I saw a plant growing which I took to be clover, and, on looking closer, saw the seed, and called out that I had found the nardoo. * * *   For some time we were employed gathering nardoo, &am...

THE LATE HON. RICHARD HEALES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 July 1864

THE LATE HON. RICHARD HEALES, THERE have been men in all parts of the world who, by their force of character, unaided by extrinsic influence, have risen from the humbler classes of society, by persevering industry and usefulness attained the highest positions, and made for themselves "a name" in the page of their country's history. Such a man was the subject of our notice. Mr. Heales was a native of London, served his apprenticeship in that city as a coachmaker, and shortly after his marriage emigrated to the colony of Victoria, where he arrived in 1842. During the earlier years of his residence there he laboured at his trade as journey- man, steadily pursuing his avocation until he was enabled to go into business for himself and become the proprietor of the estab- lishment where he had been employed. Being of economical habits, he judiciously employed his capital in investments, which, on the discovery of gold, placed him in a position of comparative independence. In 1852 Mr. Heale...

NATIVE FUNERAL ON THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 July 1864

NATIVE FUNERAL ON THE MURRAY. THE rapid disappearance of the Australian Aboriginals by disease, intoxicating liquors, and too often it is feared, by the hands of settlers in the more remote districts, lead to the con- clusion, that in a short time those unfortunate people will become as great a curiosity to the colony as Maori is to our brethren in England. A few years ago fragments of tribes were to be found scattered all over the colony, at the present time it is along the Murray River and its tributaries that any number of them exist. These still retain their native habits and customs, one of the most remarkable, being their funeral ceremonies, which are performed in a different manner by almost every tribe. Some bury their dead by placing them in a sitting position and covering them over with sheets of bark ; others, after disembowelling the corpse, place it on hurdles raised above the ground and keep a fire lit under it until it becomes dried by the smoke. The subject of our il...

THE KANGAROO AT BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 August 1864

SPORTS IN AUSTRALIA-THE KANGAROO AT BAY. - - (SEE PAGE .) THE KANGAROO AT BAY. NOTWITHSTANDING its natural timidity, the kangaroo, like the stag when almost exhausted after a severe chase, will turn-and give battle to its pursuers. The 'flying cloe' or the weak 'joey' stand very little I chance against the powerful hounds by which they are hunted, but with J a 'boomer' or an 'old man' the ease is very different. An animal of the larger size, when hard pushed, will sometimes select a large tree, j against which he places himself, and thus, feeling secure of not being I attacked from the rear, will boldly resist his canine assailants ; but the boomer's favourite battleground is some waterhole or creek, into which he rushes and erectly awaits the combat by which his fate is generally decided. If attacked by a single dog the kangaroo almost invariably comes off the winner. Possessed of immense muscular strength in his hind quarters, he makes deadly use of the large nails of his centre t...

After proceeding about five miles, they saw a man ahead of tbem riding a brown horse. Churchley askedM'Ginnerty " Who is that ?" and the latter immediately cantered on ahead, overtook the horseman, and pulled up alongside of him. : The moment he did so the ruffian, who proved to be Morgan, returning redhanded from his murderous exploits at the Round Hill Station, turned round saying, " O you are one of the j wretches.looking for bushrangers !" and fired, and immediately made off to the right.
