SECOND DAY. -Fmdat,- 8th' ApbiIi. If the success of an 'exhibition is to be measured by the number of visitors, the first dog'show under the auspices, of the Acclimatisation Society has been most succoseful. On the first, or half-crown, , day no less than fifteen hundrod persons visited the JExliibition Building, but the shilluig visitors in the evenh;g are included in the sum total. On Friday the number of visitors amounted to nearly five thousand persons.. -The show appeared to- give: general satisfaction, except, of course, to those ever hypercritical unfortunates, a few of the' persons not named in : the prize', lists.

THE FLOODS IN QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 April 1864

THE FLOODS IN QUEENSLAND. Subjoined are the particulars of the devastating floods, that have reoenlly prevailed throughout Queensland :— _ ? ' The Courier of 26th ult. says:— The apprehensions we expressed last week on Account of the heavy rains which have fallen with little intermission for more than twenty days were realised on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, when the Brisbane River was flooded to a great height.' On Monday the flood reached its maximum, which was far above the level recorded any time since the Moreton Bay district was settled. All the wharfs of the city and the adjacent stores. were swept, and spite of the precautions of our mer chants and warehousemen, a great quantity of valuable property was destroyed or seriously injured. It is impossible yet to estimate the damage done. Frogs' Hollow and a large portion of South Brisbane were submerged, and numerous families had to leave their houses without the possibility of rescuing their furni ture or clothing. Boats plied ...

PICKING UP A PARTNER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 April 1864

PICKING UP A ' PARTNER.'   The Northern Argus, of 12th ult., says: — It is   now some ten months since a dark swarthy man,     accompanied by a small sandy-haired woman, was ob served driving a remarkably well-horsed tilted cart on the road to Yaamba, with five or six equally fine horses bringing up the rear, under the charge of a servant. Shortly afterwards, the driver overtook a dogcart, which, was stationary, owing to one of the horses being bogged.   Tho owners, a very respectable looking couple— a man and woman— were evidently unable to extricate them- _ selves, without assistance, which was promptly rendered   by the man in the tilted cart lending one of his horses   to pull out the drag. This led to some conversation, and to the discovery that the latter was wholly ignorant   of the road, of which the owner of the bogged horse   was well acquainted. The obligin...

THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 April 1864

THE MONTH. ? w The R.M.S. Madras, with the European Feb ruary mails, arrived on the 14th inal. Parliament re-assembled on ? the 12th inst., after the Easter holidays, and has set to work in the some business' style which characterised the earlier part of the session. The Upper House has, as the majority of politicians surmised, rejected the. reform Land Bill. It was was never supposed that the shepherd aristocrats, who' compose our upper one thonsand, would pass the measure in such w form as could be acceptable to the representatives of the people, but , it was certainly 'expected that the second reading, at least, would have .been assented to,' if only a decent attempt to keep up appearances, and ' so far meet the^ views of the Assembly. The lordly House of Victoria, however, was not even in the mood for carrying out a ' sham,' and the bill was unceremoniously rejected, - after a short discussion, on the first evening of debate. Ministers are not discomfited by this verdict of the ...

THE VOLUNTEER ENCAMPMENT. Monday, 28th March. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 April 1864

THE VOLUNTEER ENCAMPMENT. ?Monday, 28th March. ; The great review and field-day at the yictorian Champs de Mars of 1864 has passed off with all possible colat. The scone is now, ' hko an unsub stantial pageant, faded,' but the day should long be a memorable one in Victoria, as parking one of the greatest achievements of her volunteer force, though upon a bloodless field. So largo a number of volunteers has never before been brought together in- this colony, and this circumstance alono says much for the vitality of the volunteer movement, ?wken the present strength of the force is taken into consideration with that of former years. At tho 'Werriboo oncampmont of 1862, there wae a muster of 2372, but the force then numbored upwards of 4000. Now the total strength of tho force is little more than 8300, and on tho present occasion 2400 men were reviewed. The troops wore under the direction of accomplished milil ary officers, to whose energies they are, in a great moasuro, indebted for t...

LATEST FBOM THE FRONT. (From, (lie Correspondent of the Daily Southern Cross.) Pukerimu, 23rd Maroh. — I have just two minutos to writo to toll you that wo have arrived hero all Baf e, and without seeing a Maori. We started at six o'clock and travelled seventeen miles to this placo, which is half a milQ from tlig ri,Y§r Hoi'fttfu and. geyon, frpm the MttOrj, position, Maungatautari. The latter place, it is said, can be seen from here, but the morning's mist has not been sufficiently dispelled to allow us to see. We had a short halt at Walker's old place, ? and two or three mishaps to horses in crossing the stream and rising the steep embankment there ; otherwise the- march was unattended with anything of unusual interest. We got here at four o'clock, and occupy the site of the old village, where we shall remain, it is expected, for a few days, until supplies are got up. The force from. Ngarauwahia was composed of detachments from the 18th, 70th, and Colonial Defence Corps, the whole...

THE NEW ZEALAND WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 April 1864

THE NEW ZEALAND WAR. The New Zealander of 21st ult. says it is reported in Auckland that tlie Maories have evacuated their position at Mnungatautari. This rumor requires con firmation, although it ia bv no means improbable that they will abandon this place, as_ they have before de Berted so many other strong positions. The Govern ment have resorted to the very questionable expedient of arming some of the friendly natives ; about forty stand having been sent down for the use of those near Botorua. The occupation by .our troop3 of the robel positions of Paterangi, and Piko-Piko, has revealed the extraordi nary fact that, though the Maories had exhaused all the resources of tho art of fortification, in the front of their positions, they had entirely neglected the rear,. which was left totally unprotected.' This is the more remarkable, as there were no natural impediments offered to an attacking force coming from that direc tion. Such a combination of a high degree of skill, with utter ...

THE ADVANCE ON MAUNGATAUTARI. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 April 1864

THE ADVANCE ON MAUNGATAUTABI. From the correspondence of the' New_ Zealand Herald we quote' the following as to the advance on Maungatautari: — ' '. Camp Te Awamutu, 23rd March. — -lam glad that I was able to accompany the force that proceeded to Maungatautari, this morning, owing to the changes in the disposition of the troops. . It was for some time thought, and even intended, to bring a large field force, but, at the eleventh hour, it was decided to take tho 50th, under Colonel Waddy, part of the Eoyal Ar tillery, Captain Jackson's Company of Forest Rangers, and the Defence Corps only, -so that the total number of troops accompanying the general consists of only a fraction of the available forco in this place at the pre sent time. They were, however, as ' I shall mention below, joined by detachments ; of the 18th and 70th, from Ngaruawahia., There were no guns taken, and only a few days' supply of provisions.

A MYSTERIOUS .DISAPPEARANCE. V: We take the following mysterious narrative from ! the Balldarat Star of : the 6th instant :— Mr John Francis, the well-known proprietor of the Creswick' and Gluries Advertiser, left CYeswick, with a horse and buggy, on Friday, for Ballaarat, with tfi'e inten tion of returning in the evening. Saturday arid Sunday and the' early part, of Monday having passed' away without any tidings of him, his friends began to get alarmed, and, on 'Monday ; evening, a largo number of people proceeded in search of him, On arriving at Mr Redman's Hotel,, Sulky Gully, it was ascertained that Mr Francis had left the hotel on, Friday evening, about eight o'clock; on his way home. The bush between Sulky Gully, Bald Hills and Creswiek was, therefore, carefully examined during the night, but 110 trace could be found. , On Tuesday .. morning it was discovered that a horse, with a buggy: harness on him, had been found, on Saturday morning, in one of the gullies leading from Sul...

EASTER IN THE EARLY DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 April 1864

EASTER IN THE EARIiY DAYS. By an Old Colonist.   Our Metropolitans, at this present Easter, have all the advantages of a highly polished and long settled country in the variety and extent of their holiday amusements. In addition to the overwhelming attrac tion of the Sunbury encampment to the young, the vigorous and the martial-minded, our more sober and peacefully disposed citizens have the choice of inex     pensive railway trips on the National lines, whereby parties pent up for the greater part of the year in the profitable but uninvigorating study of ledgers and the absorbing, though debilitating, calculation of profit and loss, will have an opportunity of judging for them selves of the progress of our mining townships and per   chance of laying put on the spot an odd hundred or   two in quartz ventures, or of picking out the site of   the future allotment of the statutory acres to settle on as bona f...

RATES OF POSTAGE FROM GREAT BRITAIN TO THE AUSTRALIAN COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 April 1864

JBATES OF POSTAGE FROM GREAT BRITAIN TO THE AUSTRALIAN COLONIES. Whs Imperial Government has decided .upon doubling the rates of postage from Great Britain to the Australian colonies on and after the 1st of July next— the postage on a half ounce letter, via Southampton, to he Is and via Marseilles Is dd. Such a step on the part of the Home Government appears at first sight to ho almost incomprehensible, and it is certainly the very last thing that could have been anticipated: The despatoh corpmnnicat ing the intended alteration to the Victorian Govern ment states that it is made with the view of diminish ing the loss at present sustained in the postal service. It is, however, very doubtful whether, instead of the loss being lessened by the change, it will not tie con siderably increased, because we find that, whilst such a Heavy addition is to be made to the postage feythe overland mail, the rate charged on letters forwarded by ordinary sailing vessels is to be reduced from 6d to 4d...

MYSTERIOUS DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 April 1864

MYSTERIOUS DEATH. Dr Candler held an inquest at Eltham, on the 3rd inst., on the body of a woman named Margaret Graham, who was found dead on the previous Thursday near the Diamond Creek, Nillumbik. The following evidence was adduced : — Peter Lawlor deposed that he was the senior constable, stationed at Eltham. On the night of the   31st March; he received information from Edward Qualtrough that the deceased, Margaret Graham, had been found dead in the bush in the Diamond Creek district. He accordingly went to the spot,   arriving there at half-past twelve o'clock at       night, and found the deceased lying at   the butt of a large tree. She was lying in a bent position with her head on her left leg, and with her face towards the ground.

GARDINER, THE BUSHRANGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 April 1864

GARDINER, THE BUSHRANGER. ''One murder makes a villain — millions a hero." It must be on some principle of this kind that we have had so many popular heroes of the green   sward and the road, from Robin Hood even down to Frank Gardiner. When bold and successful daring is accompanied by some generosity of character, it is impossible to refrain from a kind of admiration, such as Bailie Nicol Jarvie felt for Rob   Roy, for so much elevation above conven- tionality. In the interest of sound morals and good citizenship, there is this difference, however,   to be noted between past; and present, that whereas the bold outlaw of Sherwood forest, so famous in legend and song, represented in a rude fashion, popular liberty oppressed by a Norman tyranny,   Mr. Francis Gardiner, the outlaw and terror, for two years past of the south-western roads of New       South Wales, is only representative of acquisi...
