A grand encampment of the southern division of the volun- teer force took place at New Norfolk during the first week of the present month. The attendance was very numerous.

His attention is now turned to the country spoken of by the Rev. Mr. Clarke us likely to bb auriferous. The Champion Race forms the great topic of the month in sporting circles.

MORGAN'S OUTRAGE AT KYAMBA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1865

!&ÔRGAN'S OUTRAGE AT : KYAMBA. OK the 13th ultimo this notonous murderer paid a visit to Kyamba. -At- about noon he made his ap- pearance, at the camp of Mr. Adams, road contractor, and bailed lip all his men,, and, as the contrac- tor had no cash in hand, he set fire to> the tents/ thus. ruthlessly destroying at least £15 or £20 .rwörth of property. Five Chinamen . having made ^their appearance he ordered them *to strip, with a view to searching their garments ; they, not understanding the command, and, therefore, apparently hesita- ting to put it in force, he shot one of them in the arm, just below the shoulder joint. He then robbed the lot, but all the money he found on them was trifling-one small gold piece, and about thirty shil- lings in silver-the latter he threw away, from his chagrin. He re- mained at the camp till 5 p.m., having caused tea to. be '. made, and a damper prepared for him. Every- thing, including the account-book . of the contractor, was destroyed. ...

Thank you, Messieurs, for this show of politeness. It looks friendly. The land of my final adoption shall never have cause to regret it.

THE BURKE AND WILLS MONUMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1865

THE BURKE AND WILLS MONUMENT. IN this month's issue we present our readers with a sketch of the   monument now being erected over the graves of Burke and Wills, in the Melbourne Public Cemetery. The necessary funds for erecting a suitable memorial to mark the     last resting place of the ill-fated explorers were provided by the Victorian Parliament some time ago. Steps were immediately taken to give effect to the vote, and de-   signs for the proposed monument were called for. Of those sent   in Messrs. Huxley and Parker's was chosen. The monument, when   finished, will consist of a huge mo- nolith of granite, roughly hewn,   measuring 12 ft. high, by 6 ft.   square at the base, and tapering to   5ft. square at the summit. This     block alone will weigh nearly 30       tons, and is, as will be seen by ...

Parker River" takes its rise in the Otway Ranges, in the midst of " a forest primaeval,'' the whole of which is unsurvéyed ;. it. being pe- netrated by-one track only, which connect s Apollo Bay with the Lake District lying to the north; Most of ! the timber which . clothes the sides of these ranges is of colo3sal dimensions, and frequently attains to an altitude of '¿00 feet.

RETROSPECT OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1865

RETROSPECT OF THE MONTH. CHRISTMAS lias come and gone ; another year has passed away, and we are fairly launched upon a new one. Old Father Christ- mas has been duly honored, and the advent of 1865 celebrated with all the usual honors : pic-nics and plum puddings, country excursions, pantomimes, and other festive scenes have, as usual had their votaries. There is a time for everything.: for Clirist ?mas holidays as for the sober realities of every day life; the j former are done with for the present, and, leaving "the dead past to bury, its dead," we again don our work-day suits and commence our year's labors afresh, by wishing all our readers a Happy New Year. The opinion expressed some months ago relative to the pro. bable deficit on the Customs revenue for 1864 proves nearly correct. We estimated it in round numbers at £100,000, or within £3000 of the actual decrease as shown by the following comparative statement : ¡X . 1863. 1 ' 1864. miary ...I......;. £62,045 13 7 .£49,509 6 ...

EIGHTEEN HUNDRED AND SIXTY-EOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1865

EIGHTEEN HUNDBEB AND SIXTT-EOUM. THK past is always looked back upon with regret. No matter how dreary the vista through which the eye may have to range, stray gleams of light break through here and there, and throw a halo even upon the gloom. As there is no pleasure without an alloy of pain, so is there no misfortune unmixed with a relieving balm. Thus is it with the past. We may have gone through heavy trials, crushing losses, heartrending misfortunes, which at the time bore us down, and left behind for the moment only a heartfelt thankfulness that they should have gone over ; and yet, when but only a brief time shall have elapsed, and they shall have become numbered with the things that were, in how different a spirit do we regard them ? The bitterness has then all departed, the irritation is removed, and we see only the good that the circumstances, whatever they may have been, have evoked, We lose sight of the pecuniary loss in the presence of the friendly assistance that aided ...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1865

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. brom the 1st of January to the 17th of December, 1864, the value of cereals shipped from South Austraban ports was £1,445,731 Os. 10d., an increase of £727,169 on the correspond- ing period of 1863. Mr. IL Torrens has returned to England in consequence of the impaired state of his health, but hopes to return in about six months. The Customs receipts of the colony from the beginning of the year, to December 17, amounted to £199,495, whilst the receipts from land sales were £269,228. The imports at Port Adelaide for the same period amounted to £2,110,170, and the exports to i'2,470,680. The railway receipts on both lines amounted to £123,008. The forthcoming elections are attracting a good deal of inte- rest. Nearly all the late members have signified their intention to stand again, but in many instances sharp contests may be expected. A new Methodist chapel, under the pastorate of¡the Eev. Mr. Maughan, has been completed at Adelaide. The opening ser- vices were held ...

POLITICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1865

POLITICAL. The general election has terminated, and before our next issue reaches our reader Parliament will have re-assembled, the opening moves on' the political chess board made, and per- chance another ministerial checkmate achieved. Wc do not regret that the elections are over. Political contests are always certain to engender an amount of ill feeling, but doubly so when, as has been the case during the recent one, religious ani- mosities are awakened, and meu's passions are brought into action by those whose duty it is to teach good will towards man. We have no desire to enter into political disputes. We have endea- voured carefully to eschew politics : the social circle rather than the political world is our sphere, but we cannot help ex- pressing an opinion that the interference of the ministers of religion in matters political must inevitably lead to the per- petuation of prejudices, party spirit, and religious intolerance, such as a new country like this should never be th...

NEW ZEALAND. The Superintendent of Otago has issued a proclamation opening the whole of the ports of that province for the importation of cattle from any of the Australian colonies. Invercargill has been the scene of another fire more disastrous than its predecessor of March last. It broke out on the morning of the 9th, in the premises of Mr. Myers, tobacconist, and spread to the Empire Hotel. The adjoining premises soon became ignited, and in a short time the whole block of buildings at the corner of Dee and Don streets were in a blaze. The premises destroyed were the finest in the town, and included the Empire and Southern Cross Hotels, the stores of Messrs. Myers, O'Hara, Osborne, and Ross, and the offices of the Liverpool, London and Globe Insurance Company. The amount of loss is unknown, but merely a fragment of it is covered by insurance. The Liverpool and London policies amount to £1500 ; the Aus- tralasian, £400 ; Victoria, £200; North British, £450 ; Northern, £400 ; Royal,...
