WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1864
WESTERN AUSTRALIA. The notorious Redpath, who for a length of time has enjoyed a ticket-of-leave, has been returned to the convict establishment for twelve months for insolence to the llev. Mr. Bostock. The Flying Foam has sailed from Perth with an expedition despatched by the Roebuck Bay Association. She also took a small cpuantity of stock. Four desperadoes-of the worst class of convicts-who recently escaped from the road gang, have been captured at an out- station sixty miles from Kogonup. The Perth Enquirer says the convict class are fast thrusting out the free settlers, and that every vessel leaving for the eastern colonies, takes a full freight of the latter class. Lomas, the bushranger, has been captured at Victoria Plains. It is said that he is insane. The Yanganooka copper mines are reported to be yielding splendidly.

MURDEROUS ENCOUNTER BETWEEN HALL'S GANG & THE POLICE, AND DEATH OF SERGEANT PARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1864
MURDEROUS ENCOUNTER BETWEEN HALL'S GANG & THE POLICE, AND DEATH OF SERGEANT PARRY. IT has unhappily been our duty during the past few months to record aseries of high-handed outrages and deeds of blood, which are rendering this Colony a bye-word throughout the civilised world. Oui* exchanges :from every part.of theaglobe contain annals of crime committed by the. bushrangers p£:!New South Wales,-r-crimes unparalleled save by the banditti of Italy, degrading to us as a people, the commission of which renders; the Government of the Colony positively criminal for the apath etic aild ineffectual efforts which they have made. The time for mincing our words has long since past. The position of affairs in the interior of New South "Viales is a disgrace to any civilised community. Our legislators appear to be too much engrossed in party quarrels, and our Government in their own aggrandizement, to properly estimate the enormity of the crimes which are being daily committed in our sout...

PARRAMATTA RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1864
VIEW OF PARRAMATTA RIVER, PORT JACKSON &nbsp; PARRAMATTA RIVER. This sketch is taken irom the eminence near the Observatory, Sydney, and represents the Parramatta River from where it enters Port Jackson, winding away inland towards the village from which it derives its name. Steamers ply three times a day between Sydney and Parramatta, calling at Hunter's Hill and other landings. This is one of the many pleasant excursions by water which our magnificent harbour affords. There are many little windings and creeks branching from the main stream, some of which penetrate to a great distance and lead to many secluded and picturesque nooks. The River is famed for its orangeries, and during the season of this fruit it is to be seen growing in great profusion along its banks.

VIEW ON THE RIVER TAMAR, NEAR LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1865
VIEW ON THE RIVER TAMAR, NEAR LAUNCESTON. ! "VIEW ON THE RIVER TAMAR, NEAR LAUNCESTON. I LAUNCESTON, the capital of the northern portion of the island of Tasmania, ÍB situated on the river Tamar. The entrance to the river is at a place known as George Town, and from thence up to Launceston the scenery is very fine, resembling English scenery more closely than any other part of the colonies ; indeed, the^resemblance which Tasmania bears to the Mother Country is very great. There is a great similarity of climate and scenery, and many of the country villages are minute copies of English prototypes. The immense rock seen on the right of the engraving is a. mass of dark basalt, upreared by some gigantic upheaving of nature, and forms a prominent land mark on the banks-of the river. A fine line of steamers trade regularly from .Melbourne to Launceston ; the fares are low in comparison . to other routes. The pleasure-seeking tourist, or the invalid, will alike find a trip to Tasmania an ag...

No mocking sound comes near To break tho solemn stillness lingering there : Nought save the moaning* of the fitful breeze, . / Or tuneful rustling of the neighbouring trees, Or perhaps there may sometimes 'hove all be heard The plaintive cry of some wild forest bird. Few human footsteps pass that lonely spot : Mourners and children to his grave come not : : Except perhaps some travel...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1865
VICTORIA. Frith's celebrated picture, "Thc Derby Day," the property of Mr. Gambart, is now on exhibition in Melbourne. The Vic- torian papers are profuse in their laudations of it. The new Parliament does not appear to be a whit behind its predecessors in talking power. The new members are as prone as the old ones to waste time, delay business, and indulge in personalities. The new Land Bill has, up to the present been the only important measure hefore the Hou3e, and the Government, by a majority of at least twenty, have in every important division defeated the knot of obstructionists, of which Messrs. McCann and Berry are the shining lights, and O'shannassy their prophet. The Government carried the bill through committee before the Christmas recess, and it is pro- bable that it will pass both, houses before, the end of the presen^ month. Fischöl, late manager of the Mont de Piété, whose recent in- voluntary return from West Australia has been duly chronicled, was convicted of embez...

They started from the Paroo about the 20th June last, and arrived at Cooper's Creek in twenty days. From- Cooper's Creek Mr. M'Intyre made the point on the edge pf what is called the ."

QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1865
QUEENSLAND. The amount of revenue collected during the year 1864 was £369,425 6s. 3d., against £285,215 5s. 4d., during the previous year, an increase of £74,210 Os. 8d. Mr. Lloyd, late of the Victorian detective police force, has been appointed sub-inspector of the Queensland force. He is to be stationed at Brisbane. The police have succeeded in tracing ont the cause of the late lamentable tire. It seems a number of young scamps were seen in the rearotiBtewart and Hemmant's establishment, shortly before the conflagration, lighting their cigars and pipes, and then throw- ing matches away in a very careless manner, one of which is supposed to have fallen into the cellar of the building, when the fire broke out. During a violent thunderstorm at Toowomba on the 19th ultimo, a man named Ringe, working on the bridge, was struck by the electric fluid and instantly killed. The telegraph offices at Laidley and Drayton have been closed. Arrangements have been made to forward messages from To...
