WAIKATO RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

WAIKATO KITER. WAIKATO RIVER. i THE stream bearing the above designation is almost the only one in New Zealand having any pretensions to navigability. Its facilities haye long been known to the Maories, who guarded it with such zealous care that it -was almost entirely unknown to the colonists until the outbreak of the present war, when it became necessary for military purposes to test its capabilities, and if possible make it a highway into the enemies' terri- tory. This has been successfully accomplished, and although the Maories made gallant but ineffectual struggles at Mere Mere, Paterangi, Rangawahia, and other places along its banks, they failed to prevent the capture of Potatau's royal city, and the tombs of their kings. They have sullenly accepted their fate, and in accordance with the custom amongst their tribes they have acknowledged themselves conquered in Waikato, and by withdrawing from it give up all claim to what they acknowledge to be fairly conquered territory.

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

NEW ZEALAND. One of the most shocking occurrences in connexion with the rebellion, occurred during the month at Opotiki. which was ' visited by a number of pai marire fanatics, who had previously attempted to destroy the Rev. Father Grange. Their visit to Opotiki appears at first to have been solely with the object of obtaining converts, but they became so elated with the success and hearty reception by the Ngatewhaka to hear of their new faith, that the life of the Rev. Mr. Volkner, the resident Church of England minister, was demanded by the high priest. He was informed that Mr. Volkner was from home, upon which he caused an entry to be made into his premises, and everything sold by auction. This had scarcely been carried out when the Eclipse schooner hove in sight from Auckland, soon crossed the bar, and entered the river. It was quickly spread abroad that the Rev. Messrs. Völlener and Grace were passengers. On this being made known to the high priest, he ordered a party of nativ...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

VICTORIA. \ The Shenandoah, enlistment case has terminated. Thc jury {returned a verdict that the prisoners were guilty of attempting ! to enlist in the Confederate service. The judge overruled the objections raised, and sentenced Charley to ten days' imprison- ment. Mackenzie, who pleaded guilty, was sentenced a similar . punishment, and the boy Walmsley was discharged. The Government intend submitting to the Assembly this -session a scheme for Harbour Defences, and will ask for the vote of a sum of money necessary to carry it out. The Ladies' Committee appointed to promote a search for Leichhardt are endeavouring to raise £3,000 to carry out that object. * An artilleryman on duty at the Governor's house, at Toorak, attempted to murder Mr. E. B. Wight, director of the Bank of Victoria. He fired two shots, and whilst re-loading was arrested. He is supposed to be insane. The sum of £3,000 has been voted by Parliament to thc widow of the late Hon. Richard Heales. Judge Molesworth has ...

NEW PUBLICATIONS. Wa have received from . the composer, Mr. Fish- er, a small work, enti- tled, ' Congregational Psalmody,' being a col- lection of tunes which have been composed for the purpose, as stated in the preface, of ' provid- ing appropriate tunes for some of the many peculiar metres of our modern Hymn Book.' These tunes are twenty five in number, and re ïniftfi in Tin.TnfiH nssnm.

SIR JAMES FISHER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

i SIR JAMES FISHER. THE gentleman whose portrait we present has been for many years one of the most prominent colonists of South Australia. Sir James Fisher is an Englishman by birth, and a barrister' by profession, but, like many of ' our most enterprising pioneers of colonisation, lie was enamoured by tho reports of the exciting life of an Australian sqxiatter, aud accordingly decided upon the scene of his future home. Shortly after his arrival at Adelaide he became connected with the South Australian Com- pany, and, when the appointment which he held was abolished, he returned to his profession, and soon acquired a lucrative prac- tice, and a prominent position at the bar. When the first Legislative Assembly was being formed, Sir James became a candidate for one of the vacant seats ; and although in private life he was deservedly one of the most popular men in the com- munity, his political opinions were considered too conservative, and he was defeated. This, however, did not det...

THE RAILWAY WORKS, AUCKLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

THE RAILWAY WORKS, AUCKLAND. I HE Government ot JNew Zealand are adopting the policy of the older Australian colonies, in constructing from the public purse, railway lines, which will not only prove a good investment for capital, but will be the most active acencv in inducing settle ment on the waste land, and developing the resources of the colony. The fh'st of these is the line now in course of formation from Auckland to the Waikato, which is being pushed on with great celerity, so as to make it available as soon as possible, not only for the purposes of commerce, but also as a portion of the colonial defences, by means of which the transport of troops will be facilitated. The line will pass through a fertile district, and its terminus for the present is to be in the garden of New Zealand, the richest portion of the Waikato district.

MOORE COLLEGE, LIVERPOOL, N. S. W., [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

¡MOORE COLLEGE, LIVERPOOL, N. S. W., i OWES its existence to the late Mr. Thomas Moore, of Liverpool, who died on Bec. 24, 1840, and by his last will bequeathed the ! site of-Kis dwelling-house and ground adjoining, in the town of Í T.Wornnnl t.ocrfctW with some freehold land belonging to his catate, in trust towards the establishment of a college in imme- diate and exclusive connexion with tkc Church of England and Ireland. To Mr. Moore, therefore, belongs the enviable distinc- tion of being the first in these colonies who devoted his substance towards the endowment of a college for the advancement of learning and religion. The produce of the property thus devised was not sufficient for the erection or maintenance of such an establishment as the founder contemplated, and the proceeds were allowed to accumulate until the arrival of the present Bishop of Syney, in 1855. At this time steps were taken to carry Mr. Moore's design into active operation. The commencement was not upon a la...
