THE fourth, anniversary of the for- mation of the New South Wales "Volunteer force took place on the 27th ult., and, in accordance with a brigade order, tue various companies assembled at tlie Victoria Barracks at half-past three o'clock ; and before that time nearly all the space avail- able for the public was occupied by spectators, amongst whom the fair sex were numerously represented. The large number of Volunteers who were present was conclusive evi- dence that the very uncourteous ^ treatment they had received from < the Government had in no way injured-the efficiency of the force; indeed, they appear to prosper more ; when independent of State aid, and ' have proved that the ill-natured re- marks of "Jacks in office" were as untrue as they were uncalled for.

QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 September 1864

QUEENSLAND. The " Statistical Register" for 18G3 is one of the most interest- ing official documents that has ever been published in the sister colony-we say ' interesting, ' because it furnishes a mass of facts and figures which in themselves are more complete proofs of the progress of Queensland than any amount of vague news- paper paragraphs, unsupported by such testimony. From the document'before us, we learn that the population of the colony, on the 1st January, 1SG1, was 30,059 ; in 1S63, it was 61,640 an increase, in two years, of 105 per cent. The number of immigrants who arrived from Europe during the year was 11,727. The quantity of Crown lands sold during the~year was 63,000 acres, which realized £109,000. The total quantity of land alienated from the Crown from the foundation of the colony, on the 10th of December, 1S59, to 31st.December, 1863, was 213,123 acres. The amount of land under cultivation during 1S63 was 11,262 acres. The pastoral wealth of the colony is state...

PRISON LIFE.—CHRISTIE LEONARD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 September 1864

P'KISON LIFE. -ÖHRISTIE 'LEONAED. THE mögt notable'aitö powerful ' man among the sixty in this dreary, filthyvroom was ' Christie Leonard-an erect, fine-löoking, powerful man, abbüt five feet eleven in height, and built in proportion. His countenance wore a habitual look of deter- mination, though1 it'had not an unpleasing expression. He was transported for'robbing a man with violence in an unfrequented strèet. He'was in'an iron gang in the Blue Mountains, and made ;hfe'escape several times, but was recaptured; on every occasion getting so many hundred lashes at interval's, Jas he could bear them, and so many additional pounds of iron. At length he escaped, and got firearms, and took to the bush, and for month's eluded the police, and committed daring robberies. I do not think, however, he ever took a life ; and he says he never would do so, except to save his own. A policeman once attempted to capture him single handed. They exchanged several shots ; one of Leonard's shots carried ...

THE LATE MR. CHARLES KEMP. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 September 1864

THE LATE MR. CHARLES KEMP. A DEEP feeling of regret has been occasioned in this city by the death of Mr. Charles Kemp, for many years a partner in the proprietary of the Sydney Morning Herald. For some time past he had been suffering from disease of the heart, which terminated fatally on the, 25th of August. Mr. Kemp was an Englishman by birth ; he   emigrated to this Colony with his parents in 1825. Shortly after attaining his majority, Mr. Kemp be- came a contributor to the Sydney Monitor, and in a few months accepted a permanent engagement on that journal ; he afterwards joined the reporting staff of the Sydney Morning Herald, and continued in that vocation until 1841, when he joined Mr. John Fairfax in purchasing the paper from Messrs. Stokes and Stephens. Mr. Kemp proved fully equal to his new position : his business habits, kind dis- position, and thorough honesty, gained him the respect and goodwill of all with whom he came in contact. In 1853, Mr. Kemp, having r...

RETROSPECT OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 September 1864

RETROSPECT OF THE MONTH.   The Customs' revenue collected at the Port of Sydney during the month of August amounted to £41,716 4s. 4d. For the corresponding month of the year 1863, the receipts reached only £29,578 15s. 10d. There is, therefore, an increase on the month of £12,147 8s. 6d., or 29 per cent. During the first eight months of the year 1863, the Customs' revenue amounted to £461,226 0s. 8d. For the same period of the present year the receipts were £356,223 3s. 3d., a decrease of £105,002 17s 5d., besides £16,000 refunded for duties illegally collected; this leaves a deficit up to the 1st of September, of £121,000. The amount of gold received by the escorts during the month of August, was 27,150 ounces. For the corresponding month of 1863, the receipts were 32,631 ounces; decrease 5,481 ounces.

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 September 1864

TASMANIA. Three convicts recently escaped from Port Arthur ; two have been retaken, and sentenced to five years in chains ; the; third   man has since been seen on the road to Hobart Town.   The construction of a railway from Hobart Town to Laun- ceston has been mooted ; there is a probability of the scheme being carried out.     Oh the 17th ult., a woman named Harnett was found frozen   to death at Kangaroo Point. A man named Robinson had his leg torn off by the crank shaft of the steamer Cobre, and died soon after from hemorrhage. The quantity of Crown lands sold during the first half of the present year was 5,005 acres 38 perches, at an average price (including premiums) of 12s. 2d per acre. A Bill to legalize the construction of the Launceston-and Deloraine Railway has passed the Lower House. Mr. Sharland's 'want of confidence ' motion has been, rejected   by a large majority.

RESTORATION OF THE APPARENTLY DROWNED. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1864

RESTORATION OP THE APPARENTLY DROWNED. WE reprint the new instructions issued by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution for the restoration of the apparently drowned. We would suggest to our readers that they should preserve the . directions in some form in which they may be easily accessible. The leading principles of the following directions for the res " toration of the apparently dead from drowning are founded on those of the late Dr. Marshall Hall, combined with those of Dr. - H. R. Silvester, and are the result of extensive enquiries which . were made by the Institution in 1863-4 amongst medical men, . medical bodies, and coroners throughout the United Kingdom. * These directions have been extensively circulated by the Insti- tution throughout ' the United Kingdom and in the colonies. They ai-e also in use in Her Majesty's fleet, and in tho Coast Guard Service. 1. Send immediately for medical assistance, blankets, and dry clothing, but proceed to treat the patient, instantly ...

ORIGINAL POETRY. A MOONLIGHT NIGHT AT BONDI BAY. I. I STQOD upon tall Bondi's height, Facing the wide expanse of sea ; Tlie waves danced upward in the light ........ , Of the pale moon, which gloriously Flooded the ocean with so bright À halo, that the eye could see The noble horizon unswept By sail or mast. All calm and free The vast, unbounded monster slept ;-r , Its music sad and plaintively * Wailing around a rocky lea. II. A single cloud was in the sky, Darkening the beauty of its face A spot in that fair realm on high Dimning the stars in one large space, And blotting out some noble grace In that fair picture ; till by and by . Luna the envious cloud dispell'd It vanish'd speedily away, And all the power it once had held Was gone ; for now but brightness lay Where molten glory seemed to lave The dark rocks in each sea-girt cave.

PATERANGI REDOUBT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1864

PATERANGI REDOUBT. THERE^IS a melancholy interest attached to the New Zealand war. The indomitable bravery of the Maories has earned for . them the encomiums of even our soldiers. It is to be regretted that so costly a contest should have arisen from so'small a cause. We are no apologists of the rebels, but at the same time PAIERAIÎGI JUäDOUBT. - (FEOM A SKETCH BY ONE OF THE VICTORIAN VOLUNTEERS.) we cannot resist ex- pressing an opinion that there have been faults on both sides. Had the New Zealand settlers been less grasping and ; less covetous of their neighbours' lands the war would never have occurred; but, on the other hand, the instant that the Maories raised the standard of rebellion, it became the duty of the Government at once to teach them such a. lesson as would for alL time give security to the; settlers, whose lives andi property might be jeo- pardised by any future: outbreak of disaffected natives. Throughout the whole of the late campaign the Maories have given abund...
