TAROOM. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 19 February 1876

TAROOM. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDET.]   Once more we flourish ; by the refreshing downpour of the late rains our hills and vales     are clothed with pasture green, such as has not been seen on the Dawson for some two years. We have now the satisfaction of knowing that, after a hard day's ride, we can turn our jaded nag out (not on the notorious "Dawson Pea" as hitherto), but on luxuriant grasses, and they don't come up in the morning with that woe- begone countenance denoting starvation, and a   careless disregard of what's before them, or cut-   ting mad antics, making vain endeavors to walk up huge box trees—a notorious hallucination peculiar to pea eaters.   Shearing throughout the district, without an   exception, is finished, and a good deal of the   clip is now on its way to port, drivers being par- ticularly anxious to take advantage of the im-   proved state o...

THE DYNAMITE DEVIL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 26 February 1876

, THE DYNAMITE ©EVIL. Bremerhaven, on theWcser, in Germany,, has l>eenthe scene of a'most terrible catastrophe, and—as there is now every reason to believe— of a crime so horrible and cold-blooded as to stand altogether unparalleled in the annals of human wickedness. . It seems that on Saturday -6fternoon last the good ship Mosel, of the North German XJoyd line, 'was lying off Bremerhaven quay, TiaitHig fa-tani In-the remainder of her passengerswith t&eirlnggage, while a tug, the "Simson, 'was w&er her bows, ready to tow her »oiit to jsea.

The last of these vehicles was noticed to contain four - packages and a barrel, and as its contents were "being deposited on the pavement of the quay, the barrel exploded with terrific force. The effect was horrible. The...
