THE GUNPOWDER PLOT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WALLAROO TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 19 July 1865
THE GUNPOWDER PLOT. w ■ TO THE EDITOR OF THE WAISLABOO TIMES. Sib,—Will you be pleased to^rive publication to the following in reply to^n article on the seizure of gunpowder in your issue of yesterday. The zeal of Trooper Moriarty was not inflamed," but he was solely actuated by a sense of duty, his attention having been called on two previous occasions by a respectable tradesman of this township to the fact that only one man was accompanying the magazine, and most decidedly, on the morniag referred to, there was but one conducting it through the township. It was not " proved that the man Buck was within thirty yards of the magazine," but on the contrary it was fully shewn that he was not with it all from the railway to where the seizure was made—a distance of 400 yards through the township. It. was when the magazine was on its way baick to the Police Station that Buck, at the beck of the driver (Bolton), came bustling out of a house. After his attention having been previously trail...

Wallaroo Times. WALLAROO: WEDNESDAY, JULY 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 19 July 1865
WALLAROO : WEDNESDAY, JULY 19. Theee is something new under the sun that shines on South Australia. His beams were for so many long months unclouded, that the pastures have become dried up, and in many parts of the colony cattle are dying by hundreds and sheep by thousands. The effect of the late rains will in time remedy this dreadful state of things, but in the meantime beef and mutton are not only dear but very difficult to obtain. The great novelty to which we allude is the importation of fresh beef into South Australia from the neighbouring colonies. It must be some six or seven and twenty years since cattle were driven oyerland to Adelaide for the express and immediate purpose of being converted into' beef; and as far as we are aware slaughtered carcases have never Tintil the last few weeks been imported. The. Victorian and New South, Wales beef is said to be very fine, and saleable in Adelaide at a price not exceeding, and likely to be even a little lower than that which home...
MOONTA TOWNSHIP [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 July 1865
MOOiNTA TOWNSHIP Is advancing with prodigious strides. Buildings of all descriptions are springing up in every direction. Some of the hotels and other places of- business would not suffer by comparison with the generality of similar places in Adelaide. Mr Lester's new hotel— the Royal—is said to be the largest in the province, and the enterprising proprietor seems to have spared no expense in endeavouring to make it deserving of public patronage. The Globe, an hotel belonging to Mr W. Square, is nearly completed. It is substantially built, commodious, and of elegant appearance, and will be fitted up in a style of improvement suggested by the lengthened experience of its well-known proprietor. The Police Office, which is situate near both the hotels referred to, will be finished in the course of a few weeks. It is a neat substantial building, and will contain ample accommodation for delinquents, as well a:, residence for the police constables. . An hon. member in the House the other ...
MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 July 1865
In "mining generally we are enable to report the same amount of progress as we recorded last month. We would not, however, have it supposed that our mines are in an unsatisfactory position; far from it, they are for the most part looking as well as ever. The yield of ore from the Moonta Mines is even increasing, and the rich lode recently cut near the township is turning out splendid ore. The quantity accumulating at the mines is very considerable, cartage being difficult on account of the state of the roads. The Earkarilla is steadily progressing, and some fine ore is being raised from the back of the 60-fathom level. Good progress has been made in the erection of the engine-house, and it is expected in a few weeks that the engine will be got to work. When this is the case, we may look for great improvement in this mine. The sinking on the new lode at the Yelta has not yet gone deep enough to strike the black ore. There are always plenty of persons who are so impatient in everythin...
SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 July 1865
SOCIAL. Our social progress during the past month lias been unmarked by any movement of importance. In point of morality and religious observances we can bear comparison-with most other portions of Her Majesty's empire. Few misdeeds have , been scored at the Police Court against our refractory units, and the offences recorded are for the most part of a venial character. In the Local Court an unusual -number of cases came. •*dn v for.1 heaH^;r.$ixd: but for; .the cireum-: jstance that^he iuinber was exceptionally, ^rearfc^ itr^rotild perhaps indicate an undesirable liking for litigation. People, however, will go to law, even amongst the best regulated "communities^ and after all, the practice of settling disputes in a court of judicature may be considered as a pretty good test of material prosperity. Our religious requirements, so far as they respect accommodation for worshippers, are amply provided for. The township contains six places of worship, namely\x=req-\ Episcopalian, Cathol...
SUMMARY FOR THE JULY MAIL. WALLAROO TIMES Office, Friday, July 21. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 July 1865
SUMMARY FOR THE JULY MAIL. Wallaroo Times Office, Friday, July 21. | We have now the pleasure of presenting our readers with our sixth Monthly Summary of news for the English mail The district generally has made great advances during the past six months, probably more than at any other period, and we are enjoying a season of almost unexampled prosperity. The long drought which threatened such serious conse quences has been succeeded at last by copious and welcome rains, so that for some months at least we need fear no scarcity of water. Our mines on the whole are looking quite as well as they ever did, and although they may not all be equally prosperous, the average monthly return of ore from the aggregate is rather on the increase. Our population is receiving almost daily accessions, and is roughly estimated at 10,000.

The north-east corner of the building was selected for the reception of the "corner stone." The stone itself lay realy for placing, and contained a cavity in which was depo...
ALLEGED LIBEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 July 1865
ALLEGED LIBEL. A curious charge of libel baa been investigated at the Lambeth Police-court. Mr Frederick Jacob Pillott was charged with libelling Mrs Rachel Chappuis, and with seeking to extort money by threats. -Mr Pillott and Mr Chappuis lived near each other at Tulse-hill, and were on terms of close intimacy. Mr Chappuis photographed some horses for Mr Pillott, and as the latter refused1 to pay for them an action was brought in the j Lord Mayor's Court, which resulted in a ' verdict for Mr Chappuis for £35 15s. This,! of course, broke up the friendship, and a «hort time afterwards, Mrs Chappuis received •a letter from the defendant, threatening to expose her in some way if she did not pay the £35 15s. back to him. The defendant mentioned in his letter that he had the portrait of the lady, her wedding ring, a coin given to him by her, and her garter, and these, he said, he wouldproduce in somewaytoherdetriment. She showed the letter to her husband; and while he and his solicitor w...

SUICIDES IN PRISONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 July 1865
SUICIDES IN PRISONS. Among the troubles of our craft, one of the most distressing is when a prisoner commits suicide. It makes a terrible excitement among the rest, and, in a large place, two or three more usually try to follow the example, as if some spell were on them. But it makes the officers gloomy and nervous too, and afraid of what sight they may see when they open a cell door. It is particularly hard on men on the night watch, wandering about alone, and afraid of any special neise they may hear. It is generally done by hanging, and when a man is determined on it it is very difficult to prevent him; it is hardly ever done by women, and for this, I suppose, there is a reason, if one knew it. Of one thing I feel sure, that it does not come out of remorse. It is not likely that a man oppressed by a guilty conscience will hurry his appearence before his Maker; but the truth is, there is very little remorse going in prisons. The nearest approach to it is generally disappointment a...
Wallaroo Times. WALLAROO: SATURDAY, JULY 22. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 July 1865
Walkira CiniBS. WALLABOO: SATURDAY, JULY 22. The dogma of Invalidity—that one string upon which Judge Boothby has been liarping for so long, is now strained to an extent which threatens the subversion of nearly all the laws under which we live as colonists The latest discovery made by the advocates of this doctrine, Messrs Justices Boothby and (xwrsnsrE, is that our Local Courts are invalid, and a curious action has been taken on the faith of their honors' decision. Pending suits in the Local Courts must be withdrawn, and in this view applications have been made to the Clerks to refund moneys "jjaid into Court" in connection with actions expected to come off. The Clerks being in possession—right or wrong—refiise to give up what they have got into their hands; consequently, further litigation may be expected, but how, when, or where the litigants are to get their disputes settled is quite problematical. We are very much inclined to think that their Honors, the Judges aforesaid, are t...
IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 July 1865
of Lord Croftoii, has. been totally destroyed by fire. About 1 o'clock in the morning the discovery was first made that the house was on fire, and notwithstanding that every assistance in their power was rendered by the constabulary and the tenairts oh the estate^ the fine mansion was entirely consumed, nearly all the furniture and many objects of great value having been destroyed. No accident took place. Mr D'Arcy M'Gee, who was one of the most ardent of patriots during the Young Ireland excitement, is at present in Dublin in the capacity of principal commissioner from Canada to the international Exhibition. Mr M'Gee recently delivered an able and eloquent lecture at Wexford on his experiences in America. He took advantage of the occasion to speak some home truths to his countrymen. Such a thing as a national pro-Irish sentiment, he alleged, does not exist in the United States. " As a nation, they have no more feeling for Irelaud than any other country." He stronglj ridiculed the F...
NOTES ON PARLIAMENT. THE BUDGET NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 July 1865
NOTES ON PARLIAMENT. THE BUDGET NIGHT. The opening of^ the Chancellor of the Exchequer's Budget has become a notable annual exhibition, analogous to the running for the Derby, and would be attended by as great a crowd of people, perhaps, if thfere were but room for them. As it isvthere assembles a vast crowd—10 timcis ; more than they can possibly get in. At 6 o'clock in the morning the holders of orders, or their hired repre\x=req-\ sentatives—substitutes paid five shillings to keep the holders' places—are at the door of St Stephen's Gallery; and before the clock in the ,oM jabbey strikes nine, there are more people ranged in the said gallery than can be accommodated in the House. Members, too, come down very early to secure their-seats—some as early as 2 o'clock ; and from that time till the Speaker enters they keep watch and ward lest their places should be wrested from them. There was a time when a member could go down to the House early in the day, place a card upon a seat, and...
VICE-ADMIRAL ROBERT FITZROY. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 July 1865
VICE-ADMIRAL ROBERT FlTZROY. We have to record the death, by his own hands, of Vice-Admiral Fitzroy, the chief of the meteorological department of the Government. The fatal act took place at his residence, Lyndhurst house, Norwood, on Sunday morning, April 30. The unfortunate gentleman, had for several days been in a very low state, but nothing particular was apprehended by his friends, who considered the the marked change in his manner was owing only to over study. On the above morning, about half-past 9 o'clock, he repaired to his | dressing-room for the purpose as was supposed of getting ready for church. He, however, was absent longer than was anticipated, and upon some of the inmates going to ascertain the cause they found the door of his dressing\x=req-\ room locked from the inside, which, as might be expected, created some alarm, more especially as a low, gurgling noise was heard, as if the gallant admiral had been seized with a fit. A forcible entrance, was made, when the un...
