TIDAL DISTURBANCES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE EMPIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 22 August 1868

TIDAL DISTURBANCES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SMIIRIE. Sir,-During the whole of Saturday the waters of Darling Harbour described eccentricities such as have never been seen before by the oldest waterman, and some of that observant confraternity, number thirty years of experience. The sets of tide on the North Shore sometimes procured a bubbling up like a small Maelstrom, and would carry small boats in opposite directions along eddies, within orly a very few feet distance of each other. Sometimes these minute whirlpools would be created in one position, and sometimes atanother. Bu they most frequently occurred on the western side of the steam boat jetty at the North Shore, where they attracted cons:dera ble attention. They were also very prevalent in' the neighbourhood of thejetty, at the Artillery Barracks. Tn fact, they traversed from that point to the North Shore, at various intervals during the day. The eb bing and flowing of the tide also were irregdlar and curious. The rapidity with...

THE GAMBLER'S FATE: A TRUE TALE. BY BUSHMAN. (Written expressly for the Queanbeyan Age.) [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 22 August 1868

THE GAMBLER'S FATE : A TRUE TALE BY BUSHMAN. (Written expressly for the Queanbeyan Age.) WELL, Mr Broadsharp, if you take my advice, you will never set yourself up as a 'hazard' player again, after allowing a green horn like me to victimize you to the tune of nine hundred pounds. Such were the words of a robust-looking man of about thirty- five years of age, flus hed with excitement and strong drink, as he rose from a baize-covered table, strewn with dice, cards, and drinking glasses, in a low gambling house situated in upper Mar ket-street, Sydney, about twenty years ago. The person whom he addressed was a flashy, over-dressed, middle-aged man, with a superabundance of jewelery glittering on his person--a man well known in Sydney in those days as an inveterate and an unprinci pled gambler, who, although being reputed one of the richest men in the colony at the time, never seemed happy but when in com pany of the worthless and vile. I am extremely obliged to you for your kind advice...

."i-CAPITAL .-:.UNISHMENT. - i.- As this subject is one'wlichilieas crea ted, and is likely to create still further, a ;great diversity of opinion, we extract the following as to the deterrent effect of "the punishment of death, taken from' the evidence elicited by the Im Sperial Commission on Capital Punish ment. LORD: CRANWORTH.I- Secondary punishment is not siuffciently deterring but the fear of death is so more than any other. ..The crime of i murder. re ..quires theminost deterring punishmlient. The criminal class think that if"desth Sensues from the crimes in which they :are engaged, they. will be hanged.; this ,.has : a most salutary effect upon their ininds.- The abrogation of the punishment of death for robbery by open force, when unaccompanied:, by homicide, has '.much. diminished the number of homicides that were com - litted before that abrogation.

EXTRAORDINARY TIDAL DISTURBANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 22 August 1868

EXTRAORDINARY TIDAL DIS TURBANCE. An extraordinary tidal phenomenon has been wit nessed in the waters of the harbour during the last two days-commencing- during the ebb, about as near as can be ascertained, a little before 9 o'clock on Saturday morning.: An excessive flow of the tide then took place, the extent of which may be gathered from the fact that it reached within a few feet of the founnation piers of the toll-house on the Pyrmant bridge, and ran out to a distance of fifteen feet fiom that point, in a less period of time than a quarter of an hour. This disturbance was witnessed at least fot.r times in a period of two hours. At Johnson's Bay, as observed from- the Glebe Island bridge, the sudden rise and fall of :tho tide were' more remarkable; the disturbance there marni. festirig greater intensity. The flow was more rapid, and the rate of running out was said to have been thirteen or fourteen knots an hour. g The coxswain bf the Water Policy boat states that an extraordinar...

Light, fleecy clouds at some periods obscured the point of obscu ration, but npoti the whole a magnificent view was obtained of the celestial spectacle. The grea test obscnration took place at 4'55 p.In., when the moon's disc overlapped that of the sun to th...

ECCENTRICITY OF THE TIDES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE EMPIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 22 August 1868

ECCENTRICITY OF THE TIDES. TO TIlE EDITOR OF TUE EMPIRE. Sir,-Within the last few days-since Friday Port Jackson has' been visited with most unusual tidalappearances. The great bulk of water seemed to ebb and flow as usual, but at the.same time there was a central or upper current, rising and falling every five or ten minutes-of a most uneasy charac ter, scarcely settling itself down in one direction, when it tnrned.back into another.. I am now writ ing at the Glebe. On Satnrda) morning last, when first noticed`on:the bridge over Blaclhwattle Swamp, there was a rush of water that was alarming-the tide rising about 18 or'20 inches in five minutes eventuating in somewhere about four feet beyond the usual high water mark. Some of 'the fencing at Lyndlhurst College was washed away; but I have not heard of any further mishaps. About half-past 5 o'clock in the a ternoan, two families coming over Irom Balmain to the Glebe in a boat, never dreaming of this extraordinary current of water, we...

EXTRAORDINARY EARTHQUAKE WAVE IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 29 August 1868

EXTRAORDINARY EARTHQUAKE WAVE IN NEW ZEALAND. The Wellington Independent of August 18th says: On Saturday last a most unusual pheno. menon took place inthis` harbour, and also in other parts of the colony, as we learn by "telegraphic despatches which we have re ceived; we refer to the irregular tide which took place that day, and which created not only-astonishment, but in some cases dread, that a great disaster was about to happen. It is somewhat remarkable that, the event was foretold; during the whole of the week a rumour was current in the town that'there would be an ,unusual rise in the -vwater on Saturday, attended with earthgiqiakes; at. every public'house bar the common expres-: sion was, ?' We're all going toblie swamnped on Saturday,' of course, generally both spoken and heaid in, a half-incredulous manner; but we have been unable to trace this rumour to its source. We can only say that the -prognostication pproved correct. On Satuiday morning the water rose in an unusual ...

PANAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 29 August 1868

PANAMA: There has been another revolution at Panama. The revolution simply consisted in the acting President Diaz handing over the Government to the Commander of the Fosces, General Ponce, and making himself a voluntaty prisoner until a Provisional Go vernment could be established, of *which Ceneral Ponce has been installed as head. President Diaz and Secretary Bermudez are to be banished to San Francisco on the next steamer, at the expense of the Govern. ment, a punishment which we presume any resident at Panama, either native or for eigner, would very gladly submit to. The Mercantile Chronicle of the 25th of July says :-" A most terrific thunderstorm passed over Aspinwall between one and two o'clock on the 23rd instant. The night previous, and the early part of yesterday, the atmosphere was exceedingly oppressive. About half-past one o'clock a territic flash of lightning passed over the place followed by the awful roll of thunder. Flash and peal succeeded each other for. a. short ...

Those on board thought the vessel had grounded. Another but slighter shock was felt about seven hours after the first.

EARTHQUAKE WAVES ON THE PACIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 29 August 1868

EARTHQUAKE WAVES ON THE PACIFIC. Au earthquake wave which followed the recent eruption in the Sandwich Islands, was transrmitted to the coast and recorded on the Government self-registering tide guages at San Diego, San Francisco, and Astorio, in about five hours. On the 23rd December, 1854, a similar wave was trans mitted from the coast of Japan to the Gol. den Gate in 12 hours and 38 minutes. It will be recollected that this earthquake wave caused the wreck of the Russirn frigate Diana in the port of Simoda and great loss of life. These facts, which are derived from the best authority, convey a very impressive idea of the tremendous power required to dis-. turb the whole body of an ocean, for a dis tance of fiom 3000 to 5000 miles by a movement distinct from its ordinary tidal swing. It will be seec that the revulsion of the great tidal wave at Hawaii reached this coast, distant over 2000 miles, in five hours, and was observed along a stretch of shore over thirteen geographical de...
