THE ACTRESS AND THE BUSHRANGER. (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 6 May 1870
THE ACTRESS AND THE BUSH RANGER. (FrGm tiie Australasian.) Jenny Briar was one of the prettiest litttle burlesque actresses Australia had ever seen. She was rather below the medium height, ex ceedingly slight without being thin, and with tiny hands and feet. Her complexion was a clear olive, her hair black, soft, and rippling, her eyes large, and softened by long dark lashes that curled up at the ends. She had an impertinent little retrousse nose, that some of her admirers de clared to be the prettiest feature in her face, and worth all the Grecian noses ever chiselled or imagined. She had a sweet voice, both in singing and speaking, and an excellent taste in dress. The latter she had acquired from a French dancer to whom she had been apprenticed for. a time. X dare say her dainty appearance, and her piquant saucy maimer, which was that of a spoiled child, and not of an impu dent woman, contributed in no small degree to her success. But besides these gifts of perspn and temperament;...
The Aorthern Argus. FRIDAY, MAY 6, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 6 May 1870
mtltfii FRIDAY, MAY 6, 1870. THE report of Mr. Goyder on the Vic torian Land Act has at length appeared, and although that gentlemen has failed to give us some details of the working of the measure, still it will he of great use in assisting* our legislators in ar riving at some satisfactory settlement of the much-vexed question of Land Reform. Mr. Goyder commences with a brief review of the quantity of land sold prior to 1858, from which it appears that 2,761,515 acres were alienated, but not in a manner calculated to secure a desirable occupation of the soil, the auction system offering- great facilities to capitalists to become larg*e possessors. To remedy this alleged defect, the Land Act of 1800 was specially framed, chiefly with a view to benefit the agri culturist. The Act, so far as country lands were concerned, placed the whole [country after survey, including lands I held by the squatters, open to selectors l at £1 per acre; and we are told that no consideration was shown ...
