A ZOCIAL ZOOPERVLOOITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 19 April 1864
A ZOCIAL ZOOPERVLOOITY. (From P1rch). Vrom the York Hotel, Miargate, under the neam o' G. B., a feller writes a letter to the Times on "Poor Parsons," wherein you will find these hlere words: " I shall, perhaps, be told that the Protestant clergyman is a married man, and that he cannot keep a wife and family on £150, nor, perhaps, on £300 a year. " To this I answer that no man ought to marry unless hlie can support a wife and family, that if he does so he must take the consequences. A man with £150 a-year has no more right to have a wife and family than hlie has to keep a carriage and four, or a pack of hounds. If he violates the rules of prndence and arithmetic, hle does not deserve much compassion.' I say, .Alf. PAnlch, what d'ye think o' zum o' mny neabours in zmock vrocks and eordroy britches as manidges to bring up wives and vamilies upon some twelve shilluns a week ? If that's to be done anyhow, how much moor wri' a hundred and vifty pound a year? I 'grees with G. B. that if a...

WESKLY SU3IARY OF' NE?WS. Tno Queensland Times says.--In ad dition to the disastrous details of the flood on the Moonice, which we have given lately, ire have to record the death ofa man named Weir, a publican at Surat. Ho passed Mr. fBeck's station aibout a month ago, on his wray home, and had the appearance of suffering from the effects of drink. Some days afterwards his horase was found, and suspicion being thus created a search was made, whcen his corpse was found eleven days after, about eight or nine miles from the station, and ashort distance off the road. There was no clothlting on the body except a flannel shirt ; and as there were no wounds or othler signs of violence, it was supposed that the unfortunate man had perashted scicrably under the eff'cts of deliruns treeaens. Asnother lanuetable oc cerrence took place in the same neighbdur hiood. Al carrier named Green, who was a sober man, was sufltring much from fever anid ague, and ultimately went out of his mind.

FEDERAL NAVY. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 19 April 1864
?FEDER?NIA NAVY.- When the rebellion broke out the total number of vessels composing the United States navy did not exceed eighty. Its present aggregate is 600. To get together this number the Navy department has spent, and calcu lates to spend during the next fiscal year, about 272,000,000 dol. The amount already paid for vessels purclhased or con structed is over 150,000,000 dol. What have we got to show for this enormous outlay ? Plenty of wood and iron, but very little of what goes to constitute an effective navy. Apart from the ironclads, there is not a new vessel in it, with one exception, and that a present to the Go vernment- the Vanderbilt- that has speed sufficient to insure its.capturing a privateer or blockade runner. And even with tlhat single valuable acquisition Se cretary Welles has not been able to ac complilsh anything. IHe has endeavoured to throw the blmne of this failure on Admiral Wilkes; but, in a letter recently published, that energetic officer not only give...

WVo were spceking a short time since with a very old womian; who knew one of those mnin his struggles. His landlady thought he paid.too little for his room, and was de termined, to raise his rent fronm ls. 6d. to is. 8d. aweek. Tlhis theScotehlman stoutly resisted, and was rcsolvecd to pack up Ins .baggage and begone, rather than pay a fraction more :than is. lid.
