TRANSPORTATION TO WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 27 May 1864

TRANSPORTATION TO fWESTE AUSTRALIA. Under the new Bill at least six hul-. of our most vigorous and determined c nals would be annually despatched to thinly peopled and pining colony of T', ern Australia. After working" as conv. fur a very few years these men woul.' free to go where they like; and as penal colony itself offers few attractio: honest labour and affords no scope to:. criminal industry, the inevitable result' be easily forseen. The attraction ofl : Eastern colonies would be irresist strong, and in a short time the more. terprising would find their way to I bourne and Sidney. Sir George G.' intimates, indeed, that every induce: would be held out to the liberated cona,. to remain in the colony and pursui honest course.

WONDERFUL HINDOO SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 27 May 1864

WONDERFUL HIsDoo SCIENCE. - There is a wonderful lindoo chess-player at present in London. He plays three games blindfolded, and wins. At the same time, ihe plays a game of cards, and wins. During the game, a bell is touched every one or two seconds, and he gives the num ber of times it has been touched. A man stands behind and throws little pebbles one by one against his back; these, too, he counts; and after the games are told, he recites a poem in perfect rhyme, which he has composed during the sitting.-Gla.sgow Saturdaey Post.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 27 May 1864

orTwrrHSTAs-Dis the decision of the Road Board on the subject of the Clerks salary, we shall continue to advocate the principle of public economy, and expose humbug and selfish chicanery; and, in order to do so, we are compelled to handle in the same tree and uncernmonious manner the names of Messrs. Stephenson and Furze as they have done that of Dr. Robinson. Not that we consider it necessary to attempt a vindi cation of one character, or to point out the black spots in another. We are in posses sion of information from Creswick which enables us to estimate the value of the good character which Mr. Stephenson told the miners he brought with him, when asking them to send him into the Mining Board, under. false pretences. And as for Mr. Farze, he has been more successful in blacking his own reputation than malice itself, of the most effective description, could have been. The fact may afford him some consolation, that itis as impossible to make him worse than he is as it would be, at...

Local and General News. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 27 May 1864

THE COnCERT ROOMS .- On Saturday night Miss McDonald, Charley Williams, and Dan. Golding were well received by a crowded house at the Heathcote. The cele- brated instrumentalist, Harry Goulston, at the Emen, performed musical feats on several instruments at the same time and in such a manner that he both pleased and astonished his limited audience. Mr. Goul- ston may be called the "Musical Multum in Parro," he is a band in himself. It is worth walking a few miles to hear him play the "Last Rose of Summer," and his masterly rendering of some of the best ope- ratic selections is truly wonderful; the clear tones of the cornet, the dexterous fingering of the piano, and the perfect time observed in beating the drum, together" with the tinkling of the bells produces an effect in harmony which we hope our readers will hear for themselves, and thus save us the task of attempting a fuirther description.

NARROW ESCAPE FROM SUFFOCATION. - On Friday afternoon two men, in the employ of Messrs. Fenelon and Co., brewers, near the new bridge on the Lod don, Inglewood road, got into a vat to clean it out, but were immediately over powered by gas, which rendered them in sensible.

MISCELLANEOUS. The following contains the alphabet: "John P. Brady gave me a black walnut box of quite a small size." REsERvE. - A man should tell the truth without .reserve, but a general shouldn't take his army into battle in that way. 'Theodore Parker says that a "grain of corn is better than a diamond." -Every barn fowl in the country would agree with him. BALANCE.--A club-boat has just been built which is so nicely poised that the rowers are obliged to part their hair in. the middle to keep their balance. A gentleman who was determined to outdo the horticulturist who raised chickens from eggplants has succeeded in producing a colt from ahorse-chestnut and a calf from a cow-ard.

THE LAY OF COSTERFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 3 June 1864

THE LAY OF COSTERFIELD. Some short time since one of our most enterprising Mining Companies had the misfortune to lose about d300 worth of gold in the bush, and our contemporary con sidered it a fit subject for an attempt at ridicule, and treats .his readers to an ex hibition of the highly elastic properties of the human imagination, in the shape of poetry, under the title of "A Lay of Cos terfield," from which we take the following elegant extract:- " And a lamp of gold at last they got, Out of a furnace fierce and hot. Now theso nien, although themselves so wild, lHad a horse like a demon, with temper so wild. , Nothing c`uld,tame this terrible steed, And all declaird that some dieadful deed Would some day be done by this wonder ful beast,-. Whio could not be curbed or controlled in the- leist. At last" one day Pen Cost, so bold. Did mount the beast, with the cake of gold ; And while he rode, as I have heard say, The devil did meet him upon the way; And quick as thought, without a...

(To the Editor of the M'Ivor Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 3 June 1864

(To the Editor of the 1''Iror Times.) SIR,-Natural historians tell us that the Ostrich when pursued will stick his head in a bhush and fancy himself concealed,-and thus it has often been the cause of langliter. Yet if we pause to examine cases of human -folly and weakness, we have not long to look before we find a parallel to the stupidity of the Ostrich. Messrs. Furze & Co. do not, of course, shove their heads in a bush, but they appear to think that the public; in accordance with their wish, have forgotten everyvthing that has transpired here during the last twelve months. Mr. Furze is coming out now as the champion of the Hospital. He flatters himself that the public hare forgotten the loan of Hospital money from M'Vane, and the loss of thirty odd pounds, when the accounts of the - News and the lHospital were so mixed up that it has been found impossible to separale them with justice to the institution. Of all subjects, the News should have taken most-care to avoid this. ...

SIR,-I see by the Local Government Act that unless the Road Board rates are paid before the 21st of June, we, the rate payers, will lose our votes at the Road Board and General Election. How is it that the Collector "do6s not call for the rates? Are we each expected to 1:,se a day in goingr into Heathcote to pay them ?' lie left notice that the rates must he paid in fourteen daiys to save further expense, and it is now near three months since the notices were left, and no Collector hias caliled since that tiiue. Are we to Lb made the dupes of o:jr own paid servants as well as legislative schemers ?

(To the Editor of o the M'Ivor Times.). 81,m-It was with no slight degree of astonishment and indignation that I perused the circular emanating from the Committee of the late Ball, calling upon all'those who received them, to render an account of the ladies it.might be their in iention to invite, for the aproval of a ce@r tain. Henry Stephenson, whose only authority for the prbceeding seems to be, that he wrises from the Road Board office. Now it is, I believe, ao-unusual:thing for. p..; *. a Ball Committee to request answers to their cirulars, in order that they may be enabled to form an approximate idea of the number they will have to cater for. This is right and reasonable enough. But what object can a Committee have, in so small a community as this, in demanding in such peremptory terms, the names of ladies intending to be present . II can only suppose that it was done in order that the said Henry Stephenson might sit in judg ment upon the characters and. reputations of our wive...
