A FLYING TRIP TO BOURKE—JOTTINGS BY THE WAY. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 10 January 1870

A FLYING TED? TO BOUBKE-JOTTINGS BY THE WAY. Left Sydney by the five o'clock train, taking my ticket to Bowenfells, and having, before leaving the platform, purchased an Evening ITews, devoured its contents, which principally consisted of electioneering excitement, which was the main topic of the day. At the Parra matfai innction we had to separate ourselves from the Southerners, whilst we sheared off to the right and took the Western line. All along the line the country was looking beautifully verdant, and the crops about Pen rith were all that the farmer could wish for to put him in heart, after having so many bad seasons in succession. THB NEPEAN BBIDCE— THE ZIG-ZAG. Leaving Penrith, we crossed that magnificent bridge over the Nepean. It certainly is the finest bridge m New South Wales. The only one that bears comparison to it to my idea, iB tbat splendid structure at Menangle, on the southern line. However, both are creditable to the colony. Now for the Zig-zag. The moon is up, ...

NOTES ON TEE CAMDEN DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 10 January 1870

NOTES ON THE CAMDEN DISTRICT. Caiiden, before the inauguration of railways in New South Wales, was probably better known than it is at present. Many who in travelling to and from Sydney, stopped hcre,rnow pass by at a distance, and only know the district by a ghince out of a railway carriage win dow. This fertile farming district is therefore almost left to the care of its permanent residents or only visited, as at the present season, by men in search of harvest work. It may uot, therefore, be considered out of place if I rnako a few observations from notes taken during a tour through the district. I tliink 1 shall not be guilty of making an original remark, if I say that the immediate neighbourhood of Sydney is not rich in agricultural land, the iron drift found on the top of tbe sandstone rendering the soil too hot for almost anything but plants of native growth. It is not till you reach the George Kiver, at Liverpool, that the 6oil begins to improve, and to change from a^barren s...

MONDAY, JANUARY 10, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 10 January 1870

MONDAY, JANUARY 10, 1870. At length we have arrived at the last day of the general elections for our sixth Parliament. At four o 'clock this afternoon the polls will close at the three Gold Fields electorates, and the Assembly will be complete, with the excep tion of that second election for East Sydney for the expense and excitement of which, the public will have to acknowledge indebtedness to the vanity of Mr. Parkes, and to the weak ness of those who encouraged it. There are indeed some probabilities of further reflections, as we gather from the country papers. There is talk of disputing the return of Mr. Fjtzpatrick fur Yass, for instance, and we have heard of other contemplated objections, more or less probable or likely to fail. The Assembly, however, is now virtu ally returned; and in little more than a fortnight from this time it will be again in full career of talk. For, whatever we may have promised to ourselves — whatever we may have hoped for, it would be rash and sangui...

CONCLUSION. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 10 January 1870

CONCLUSION. The sun was sink ng behind the tops of the rualloy busbes ; the trembling lights and shadows which it cast on their red stalks and bright green leaves, im parted to them a charm not always found in the Australian bush. Swarms Bf' white kakndoos nestled among the lofty gum-trees by the shore, resting for the nurht amonir their branches. Thp rivnr_ «lrm«r flip banks of which the] riders were now gallopping, was covered with flocks of wild ducks, flying up and down ; two black swans, seeking their food, swam rapidly against the current, as soon as they heard the noise of the approaching hoofs, until the travellers drew near. They then spread out their wings, and, follow ing tbe bend of the river, were soon lost to sight. 'There lies tbe station,' said Walker, pointing with bis left hand. This is the sand-bill from wMcb the black cripple gave the signal. I can see the smoke ascending from the houses at the back.' 'And there !' exclaimed M'Donaid, as he caught caught hold of ...

JACK LOUDEN; OR, LIFE IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 10 January 1870

JACK LOUDEN; OR, LIFE IN THE BTTSH. There were about sixty or seventy of them, fresh tram the run, full of vigour and spirit, and the keeper's task to keep them together on the right road, was by no means an easy one. They were all tied together, two and two, and if a eoupbj of them did run away they soon became entangled in the bush, and were easily brought back to the rest. M*Donald rode a fiery young horse which he could sjcarcely * master, and this animal greeted his passing comrades with a loud neigh, borne of the herd answered, and the stock-keeper on the left side had the greatest difficulty in preventing them from rushing to the spot where they heard the neighing. 'When he had got Ms own animals together again, he rode to the place where he had heard the strange horses, to see who was there. Xs4*ii | ? f^P( ???iSSBW- ?

THE MORALITY OF THE STAGE. DION BOUCICAULT—A LETTER IN DEFENCE OF " FORMOSA." [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 10 January 1870

THE MORALITY OF THE STAGE. DION BOUCICADLT— A LETTER IN DEFENCE OF ' POEMOSA.' r Some severe criticisms having been made on Mr. Dion Boucicault's new play, 'Formosa,' he defends it in a letter to The London Daily Telegraph, in which he says :— We know there are certain vices, like certain thorough fares, reserved for the exclusive enjoyment of the upper classes. The exposure of scenes of aristocratic profligacy forms the srbiect of mv nlav— ' Formosa : or, the Railroad to Euin.' I am charged with violating the reverence I ought to feel for the blackguardism of my betters. If my frail heroine had been, like Jane Shore, a poetic prostitute, Ishouldhave escaped censure; but I am only a realistic dramatist, so my heroine is a fact, a natural production we see daily in the Park, and nightly at the opera. Her existence is the offence of which I am 'guilty. The truth is the trouble. It is not contended that the scenes I have represented are fake ; but it is urged that such scenes and perso...

BRUTAL MURDER NEAR BRISBANE. A most brutal murder was perpetrated on Sunday night, or Monday morning, the 2nd or 3rd instant, somewhere close to the bank of the river near Mr. George Baff s house, a short distance from town. The victim, as we learn from the following report in the Queensland Express, -was a man named Patrick Hart nett, a carpenter by trade, who is supposed to have been possessed of some landed property in Fortitude Valley.
