FhALIENBERG THIE FORGER. (From the Brisbane Courier's Maryborough Corresronrdent.) Mancle 12.--,When thile last mail left for Brisbane some suspicion was raised that Fnlkenberg was in toWn. I will send you a full, true, and particular account of his escape, hIis recapture, his escape again and his recapture again. After escaping from thie lock-up at Brisbane hlie made for Ips wiclh. Your chief constable he met the next day in all hIis official finery, but as Falkenbcrg says, he knew tlhe chief's busi ness better than the chief did, hlie passed on from Ipswichl to Drayton and Toowooba. At the latter place he fell ip with two other Germans, and the three became one. Hence the trio wentto Gayndal, and on to Maryborough. One of tlheir number went to Southerden's store and boughlt somen goods, tendering in payment a cheque drawn by Stewart and Lawson (now sup posed to be a forgery) for £34, and Mr. Southlordon 4sve him a cheque of his own for £29 in change.

THE LIFE-BOAT DISASTER AT NEW. CASTLE. (From tlhe Empire.)

CAPTURE OF GARDINER THE BUSHRANGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 29 March 1864
CA.TUITA OF GARD. YERTHE . BTUSI HRANGNEG. (Fro a the Lfihyire.) The tele' rchifews which announced the capture of thb notorious bh?shranger SFriank Gardiner, to the,-Syniiy6 public, :'was looked upon with great distrust, and many persons ventured to predict that when the individual who had been ap prehended arrived in Sydney, it would be found that the constables had been sold, and they had failed to lay hands on the veritable Simon' Pure. Happily,3 how ever, the iiews that was conveyed by the electric wire \ias true, and Mr. Frank Gardiner is laid by the heels a;t last. This is the fifth (of the gang of seven) whoso career has been cut short, and in this ease perhaps there is much cause for con gratuli~tion than in the death of those who were previously his associates in crime. Gardiner was the first who organ :ised a regular band, and there can be no doubt had he not escaped after the des. perate encounter with troopers Middleton and Hosie, three years ago, not a tithe of the amo...

HOW PEACHES MAY BE USED AND PRESERVED. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 29 March 1864
How PEACIIHES MAY SE USED AND P?RE 8ERVED.-~le F?orier'ls JOtrlal, ill reply to the enuquiry of a correspondent as to the use to lwhich peachels may be turned, gives the followiug answer:-" Peachres may be converted into wriue, branud-, and vine :ar, as n-well as dried and made into jam. TIhe drying, about which you specially inquire, is (lone by quartering them before tlhey are ripe, mad drying tIhem on boards or tra:ys; the best and jueiest kinds being least fit for tIhe purpose. We have seen very credit able wine made last season from peaches, by merely gathering tlem up wlhen they fell from over ripeness, and thlrowing thlem together in a tub:. When the tub rhad be come full, the juice was strained off thlroghl a wollen bag. and put into a eask to fer ment, anrd wlhdn this had proceeded flar enough, it wa.stopl)ed by using a little sulphate of limne, as recornrrended in tihe case of cider makiusg.

ACCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 29 March 1864
ACCIDENTS. We have again to chronicle several ac- sidents of a more or less serious character, though none of which are or will, probably, prove fatal in their effects. On Tuesday last, Mr. Tory, of the Nowra Hotel, Shoalhaven, being in Kiama, put up at Mr. Adams's, when the horse he rode, which happened to be unaccustomed to a stable, proved somewhat refractory on its being attempted to get him into that at Mr. Adams's. This, however, was accomplished; but in endeavoring to pre vent his coming out again, which he pre- sently attempted to do, Mr. Tory somehow got his arm across the doorpost, and the horse coming with his full weight against the extended hand, broke the bone of the arm near the elbow. Dr. Taylor was im- mediately called, and did what the case re- quired, and with his usual success as it proved; for on Friday last the patient, who had remained during the interval at Mr. Adams's, was sufficiently recovered to proceed by steamer to Shoalhaven. It is a singular circumsta...
