THE MURRAY SNAGBOAT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 12 January 1867

TBE MURRAY SNAGBOAT. It is now nearly nine years ago since the rising importance of the trade between Goolwa and Wak gunyah on the Upper Murray, compelled a rather reluctant Government to tnru its attention to im proving the means of communication between the two places. A liberal vote for a snagboat was the result; and to Captain Francis Cadell was wisely deputed die responsibility of her design and con struction. That gentleman set about Ms work iu his accustomed energetic manner, and in due time the Grappler was a fact. She cost a heap of money ; and the then Treasurer may now be excused if he looked a little grave as he footed up the amount and found it to be close on £8,000. He managed to survive, however, and the country did not growl, so she was commissioned and went to her work. Being built at Echuca, she made her earliest grapples thereabouts. One Government succeeded another, and the enagbcat might have been altogether for gotten had not her name appeared sometimes on the ...

CHURCH OF THE HOLY EVANGELISTS.—LAYING THE FOUNDATION STONE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 12 January 1867

CHURCH OF THE HOLY EVAN« LISTS. — LAYING THE FOUNDATION STONE. On Wednesday last an event took place in Goolwa which has been long hoped for by the -members of the Church of England, namely, the laying the foundation stone of a church for their use. Years ago money was subscribed and land was secured, but without any further result. Even lately the movement has been struggling against difficulty after difficulty for two years, and the older settlers had become convinced that no church was likelv to be built in their day. Ill luck seemed to attend the Building Committee at every step ; and had it not been for the faithful perseverance of few earnest men doubtless this hist attempt wonld have failed. But it has not About three weeks ago a contract was taken by Messrs Burgess anda Watts for putting up the walls. The foundations were laid just before Christmas, and it was an nounced that the foundation stone should be laid on the 9th of January. The day, when it came, proved most favora...

FEMALE EMIGRATION TO AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 19 January 1867

FEMALE EMIGRATION TO AUS TRALIA. Miss Rye has addressed a company of ladies and gentlemen at the Bristol Guildhall. She was introduced to the meeting by Mr. Com missioner Hill, Q.C., and said : — ' That she wanted the public of Bristol to co-operate with her in the matter of female emigration. For some years she had been working; among: women, and had both seen and read of the distress of many of her country women. Many persons were trying with her to solve the problem as to what was to be done with the young women of this country. All would agree that something more might be done in remedying the evil. Emigration was one great way. Some six or seven years ago she had established a law copying office in London for the employment of young women, but the applicants were a hundredfold more j than the number that could be employed. This j induced her to think of emigration, and she sent out six governesses who applied to her for assistance to Sydney, where they did very fairly. Several ...

THE TRIAL OF RISK ALLAH BEY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 19 January 1867

THE TRIAL OF RISK ALLAH BEY. We announced in our last issue the com mencement, on the 22nd October, of the above remarkable trial in the criminal court at Brussels. The enquiry lasted several days, upwards of 50 witnesses having been ex amined. Its chief interest turned on the question whether a death was suicide or murder. The deceased was a born English man, of the name of Readly, the son of a lady who was thrice married, and who died a few years ago, leaving property of the value of ^25,000. The accused was her husband, and to him she had by will left the whole of her estate. By her marriage settlement, however, she had previously given a sum of £5,000 to Readly, in the event of his attaining majority, but it was to revert to the husband in case he should die under age. This husband was a native of the Lebanon, by naino George Habeeb Risk Allah, who had in England studied for the medical profession, become naturalized, duly graduated as surgeon, served for some time in the Turkis...

Soon after a hurricane of clangour burst forth from the bills of the capital. Every church having five dojneri at the least, and a corresponding number nf bells, the air seemed to vibrate far and near with heavy harmonious sounds. To this accompaniment the correspondent says he went to the Winter Palace, there to see the assembled wedding guests and attendants. Jle says — ' Were I an Arabic writer, and allowed to ransack the whole kingdom of nature for metaphors, I should be tempted to assure my ?wondering audience that there is many a wood in the world which has not got so many leaves as were embroidered o...

THE METEORIC SHOWER. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 19 January 1867

THE «£T£^Mc SHOWEK. Mr J. R. Hrad, the well-known astronomer, in a letter to tlie Times, gives the following account of the shower of meteors- on W«Ines day morning :. — *? in addition to- Mr Wiss and myself, our. observing force included M. Hn Chailu (who kindly volunteered his assistance on the occasion) and Dr. Hampshire. From midnight to one o'clock a.m., Greenwich time, 1,120* meteors were noted, the number gra dually increasing. From 1 a.m. to lb. 7m. 5s. no less than 515 were counted, and we were conscious of having missed very many, owing to the rapidity of their succession. At the latter moment there was a rather sudden in crease to an extent which rendered it im possible to count the number, but after 1.20 a decline became perceptible. The maximum was judged to have taken place about 1.10, and at this thne the appearance of the whole heavens were very beautiful, not to say mag nificent. Beyond their immense number, however, the meteors were not particularly remarkable, eit...

THE FIRE AT QUEBEC. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 19 January 1867

THE FIRE AT QUEBEC. Tbe terrible, conflagration which recently occurred at Quebec is said to have originated i-i h drinking saloon, where some mi'ii, quar relling over a card-table, upset a lamp, and the oil, running over the floor, set fire to the bouse, the flames spreading with great celerity a-nong the wooden houses in the neighborhood. Tbe great extent of surface burnt over is at tributed to the neglect of the authorities in not providing an adequate supply of water, or in any way sttempting to relieve their exposed condition. The insurance companies long since saw the danger, and the foreign ones have been steadily reducing the number of their risks and increasing the rates of premium, until risks which were taken at 5s. in Montreal were chwrjied 12s. Cd. in Quebec. The city autho rities have alreadv b-^en condemned for their neglect at a public meeting of the. citizens.

In fulfilment of our promise to place before our readers portions of the evidence taken be fore the South-Eastern District Improvement Committee, which bear also upon the interest of the South, we proceed now to the considera tion of the Surveyor-General's magnificent scheme — for no other word will describe it — of effecting the double purpose of draining the South-Eastern swamps and giving uninter rupted water commuuicarion from near Mount Gainbier to the M array. We cannot of course pretend to discuss the question from an en gineering point of view, nor to determine whether Mr Goyder's deductions are correct. lie has propounded in plain and decinivp. terms a bold and startling policy, which, if it can be realized, will add immensely to the producing resources and individual prosperity of tbe community, and will convert dreary wastes of swamp into fertile farms or pasture lands, and by tl:e same process replace the iin practicable bush tracks of to-day ...
