WOONOONA. AN AUSTRALIAN TALE OF THE CITY AND THE BUSH. CHAPTER I. THE CURTAIN RISES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

WO ONO ONA. AN AUSTRALIAN TALE OP THE CITY AND THE BUSH. BY F. S. WILSON. CHAPTER I. THE CURTAIN RISES. " The web of our life is of a mingled yarn, Good and ill together." IN one of the leading thoroughfares of Sydney, there stands or rather did stand, at.the time in which my story commences -an old and dilapidated shop, one of those old-fashioned sabled tenements which, though fast becoming obsolete, are still to be met with in some of the less progressive portions of our city. The adjoining houses had long since been taken down or had themselves fallen beneath the ever-decaying stroke of Time ; and new shops, with jauntily-painted fronts, had risen, phonix-like, fi om their ashes. For a dozen years, the dwelling had looked as shattered and infirm as it did then. "Who the real owner was no one could tell-most people thought that its original possessor had died after willing it to some distant relative in foreign lands, who still remained blissfully ignorant of the fact that he was ...

THE DEVIL'S PUNCHBOWL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

THE DEVIL'S PUNCHBOWL. BY EDWARD BRANTHWAYT, AUTHOR OF " THE WAYWARD HEART," &C. " WHEN I was shepherding in Australia-" " Well done, Camelford, this is a new phase of your motley existence," interrupted Belport; "1 expect to hear your next story begin, ' When I was captain of the Skull and Cross- bones!'" . " Or ' Cook to the King of the Cannibal Islands. ' » Or ' Mate of a Yankee whaler. ' " "Or 4 Pipe-bearer to the Rajah of Paddypore.' " " Or ' Chief medicine-man of the Choctaw Indians.' " Jack Camelford had led a wandering, adventurous life in his early days, when he was a younger son not overburdened with cash, and now that his father and elder brother were dead, he chiefly used his new wealth to gratify more amply his insatiable passion for roving. At the period in question there was a party of six of us assembled in the cabin of his yacht the Zíngara, bound for Iceland, to get out of the beaten track, and see the geysers or other wonders. " When I was shepherding in A...

Lucas had heard me, and looked up, but did not seem to recognise either me or my voice, and that emboiaenect me xnen the Major came down with his paper, and Mr. Leith left them for his morning bath. I saw him plunge in and swim out to sea ; and as I wanted to foUow his example 1 determined to pull home and change my clothes. " Well, I will have one more try," 1 thought, as 1 have to pass the Major. Perhaps he may like to go." When I came up to him he had put clown the paper, and was watching his son through a field-glass. Miss Leith was sitting at his feet, sketching and talking to him. " I am afraid Harry is going out too far, Helen,' 1 heard him Sa^' But he is such a capital swimmer, papa. Where is he now?"

GREAT FIRE AT MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

GREAT FIRE AT MAITLAND. ON the 14th ult., the most destructive tire that has ever taken place in Australia broke out at Maitland. It was first discovered on the premises of Mr. Hyndes, cabinet-maker, and is supposed to have originated from a spark dropped in a heap of shavings, which it was sought to extinguish by placing boards over it, but unfortunately the remedy proved worse than the disease, and. the flames thus fed communicated to the sheds, and from thence to the premises of Messrs. D. Cohen & Co., the largest general storekeepers in the colony, whose stock alone was valued at £150,000, the whole of which was destroyed in spite of the most vigorous efforts. Lipscombs', chemists ; the Commercial Bank ; and Mr. Mullens, were also destroyed. Such was the rapidity with which the flames spread that hardly anything was saved. The losses are thus estimated : Loss. Insured for D. Cohen and Co. .. £150,000 £05,000 Mri M. Cohen ; Furniture .. .. 300 300 Mr. Lipscomb ; Stock .. ...

THE DEATH OF MORGAN, THE BUSHRANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

THE DEATH OF MORGAN, THE BUSHRANGER. THE most bloodthirsty monster whoso crimes have darkened the annals of New South Wales has gone to his final reckoning, shot down like a wild animal as he deserved to be while in the com- mission of crime. On the 23rd ult. Morgan stuck up the Denili- quin mail between Wagga Wagga and Urana. He ransacked the bags, and a great number of the letters were torn. For about a fortnight after this occurrence nothing was heard of the robber, and when, on Friday, the 7th, intelligence was received by the Beechworth police, and by them communicated to Mel- bourne that Morgan had crossed the Murray, and commenced a raid in Victoria, it was considered a mere rumour, but the news proved correct. The Herald's telegram thus describes the closing     scene of this murderer's career. During his short stay over the border, mounted on Mr. Bowler's racer, Victoria, he stuck up M'Kinnon's station, Little River; Evan's, King's River, &...

OUR COLONIAL BANDITTI. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

;OUR COLONIAL BANDITTI.     THE Solicitor-General, in moving the second reading of the Felons' Appre- hension Bill, thus summarised the career of the highwaymen who infest the Southern and Western districts. "This system of bushranging com- menced in May, 1861, when Francis Gar- diner, who had been convicted of horse stealing, but held a ticket of leave for the Carcoar district, allied himself with one Peisley ; and Gardiner being arrested by sergeant Middleton and trooper Hosie, was rescued by Peisley, who immediately afterwards committed two highway rob- beries, and them murdered William Benyon. For this murder Peisley was tried ; he was convicted, and executed in April, 1862. In or about the month of May, 1862, Gardiner appears to have been joined by John Gilbert, and these two organised a band of young ruffians residing near the Pinnacle, consisting of Henry Manns, John Bow, Alexander Fordyce, and several others, who, to the number of eight or ten in th...
