MURDER BY THE BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 July 1866

MURDER BY THE BLACKS. A late number of the Macleay Mercury, (N.S.W.) has been favored with the particulars of a murder recently committed by the natives, and attended by circumstances whioh somewhat iredeem it from the monotonous character of such .atrocities. .-' The pro- - prietor of Eaglefield station recently 'formed an out-station some forty miles from Eaglefield, on a creek called Rockingham Creek, the boundary of Eaglefield near the Leiohha'rdt range. At this out station a lambing down flock was placed in charge of three or four men well armed ; one of whom, while in the yard one morning, foolishly fired -his revolver in bravado over the heads of some blacks. The sheep were naturally divided during the day, and one man with a dropping flock was for two days oaref ally followed by the blaoks at a distance, the latter, on ? the second night, keeping about the yard, -ob was judged by the furious bark ing of tbo dogs. .The man in oharge of the dropping flock was perfectly cognisa...

QUEENSLAND FINANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 July 1866

QUEENSLAND FINANCE. Tho Brisbane Courier, of the 4th inat., remarks that the revenue returns for the quarter ending 80th June are of a for more satisfactory character than could have been anticipated from the constant com plaints made about the badness of trade. We have frequently stated that the dulness about whioh so much is said, is due to the absence of speculation, and to the reaction whioh inevitably follows a period of undue expansion of business operations. The returns before us, like those of the previous quarter, bear out this assertion. There is a steady increase in every item, with the exception of the gold and the land revenue, and the deorease in these amounts is oapablo of easy explanation. This in crease could not take place if the oolony were not really progressing in material wealth. The amount raised at the custom house is the only criterion we have of the consumption of dutiable goods ; and this certainly does not show that any great amount of self-denial has bee...

to I «— — — ? : ? — ? . THE MURDERS AT THE GREY AND ON MAUNGATAPU. V-mOU THE OTAGO DAILY TIMES, JUNE 30.] ThVmysterious disappearance of Mr George Dob- Bon, while travelling a short distance between the Arnold and the Grey townships, was speedily fol lowed by the equally mysterious disappearance of four men while crossing the . Maungatapu range, between the Wakainarina and Nelson. In each case there haB been the moat anxious scouring of the country fay police officers and volunteers ; and in each, while in neither has a trace of the victim or victims been found, all that has been, discovered points irresistibly to the conclusion that murder has Lnn committed. The two affairs are, as it may he Baid linking themselves together. The thwe Ln, Richd. Burgess* alias Hill, Thos.

BURKE TOWN, GULF OF CARPENTARIA. The following letter from Mr W%Landsborongb, the police magistrate at Borke Town, addressed to his Excellency the Governor, has been kindly for warded to, as by his Escellenoy for publication : — 'Mr W. Landsborough to his Exoellenoy Sir George Bowen, G.C.M.G. — Sir, — On my arrival at the Albert River I pitohed my camp on the eastern bank, at some little distance from the township formed by Mr J. G. M'Donald, and' where I found the river water to be fresh. This is almost the. highest point of the river navigable by coasters, and as the site is considerably higher than the present township, and, if necessary, a stream of enperior water might be oonveyed with verv little outlay from higher np the 'river, I consider this one of, if not the best position for the future town ; more especially as the whole of the inland traffic must of necessity oome to thin side of the river.

CATCHING TURTLES AT CHATHAM IS LAND, GALAPAGOES GROUP. These uninhabited islands are pretty uniform in their appearance, showing mountainous peaks and irregular ridges forced .up by volcanic notion, ? which still bursts forth in frequent eruption. The acclivities abound in cinders, and are bare of vegeta tion, 'bat here and there ore sequestered nooks green with verdure and shaded by groves of trees. Springs are scarce, and the ships whioh visit the islands have little chance of finding water, except in the transitory streamB or wells in the hollows of the I rooks,', after ;a oopions rain. The pelican, booby, the. duck, .and other aquatic birds, aro- con- stantly hovering about the coast, and in the interior doves of a beautiful plumage, mocking birds, |and thrushes abound. The notable animal products of the islands aro, /however, the land tortoises, the turtles, the iguanas, and the- crabs. The Galapago tortoise, is of elephantine size, weighing frequently ? over three hundred poun...

A BITER BITTEN. ??

THE MONTH The B.M.S. Bombay, with Jihe Etwopeaa May mail, arrived in Hobson's Bay on the morning of Thursday, the 12th1 inst. Never before did the newa create so much excitement. The intelligence last month prepared us for stirring events. We had heard of the monetary panio, and ef the threatening attitude ef continental affairs. -Bat a month does wonders in the work of paoificution. So often does the detailed news fail to confirm the late telegrams that there was room for hoping that things were not so bad as they seemed; bat. ibis i month's news has folly confirmed the fears raised by that of last. A branch of the Agra Bank is established in Mel bourne, and it is feared that some of our merchants will be considerable losers in consequenoe of the failures at home. . The Melbourne banks have raised the rate of discount one per cent. The vacancies in the Cabinet are not yet filled.

CHAMPION PLOUGHING MATCH OF THE PORT PHILLIP FARMERS' SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 July 1866

CHAMPION PLOUGHING MATCH QF THE POBT PHILLIP FARMERS' SOCIETY. This event, which has been looked for with interestby the farming world, came off on the Sthinst, in the Boyal-park, about three miles from Mel bourne, on an open piece of land sloping gently to the north. For the purpose of a ploughing match, a better site could not possibly have been chosen ; the turf was a virgin one, and the soil a nice friable loam, in beautiful condition for ploughing. Although the upper portion of the land (on which were the men who had nover won an advertised prize, as well' as the boys and four of the champions) was somewhat drier than the lower half, on which the rest of the champions'were placed, the difference in the quality of the ground was not so great as to militate against the success of those who were located on the hill, for the first and second champion prizes went to that portion of the field. For the champion class, which' was open to all comers, but which was filled, as intended, b...

Falconer's 'Extremes, or, Men of the Day,' was chosen by the committee as the piece de resistance.

Up till now, Java has been to us a comparatively unknown region, though occupied by Europeans for centuries, and though its history is not without interest and even a spice of romance. The religious persecutions and commercial annoyances which the Dutch suffered at the hands uf Philip of Spain during the latter half of the sixteenth century, led them to seek an outlet for ...
