THE DINGO OR NATIVE DOG.—SEE PAGE 10. THE DINGO. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 July 1866

T H;B; DINGO 0 R N A T I V B J- 0 G.~-Sej3 Pa0b 10, THE DINGO, Or native dog, presents in ontward appearance a striking resemblance to the European fox, though in general, rather larger; while as to character, it has all the fox's cunning and cowardice. A bull terrier has ; boen known to put half-a-dozen .dingoes to flight from theneighborhood of a sheep pen which they had at tacked in the night. The dingo is supposed to be de , rived from the Japanese wolf, to which also it has . some resemblance. It will breed and perpetuate with a common dog. A cross between it and the cellie is , much sought after by shepherds, as it makes an excel , lent sheep dog, retaining only enough of its original nature to destroy poultry or small game. The pure dingo is untameable ; its habitat is the dense scrub or mountain wild; its sleeping place a hollow log; its food, the opossum, kangaroo rat — anything, in fact, in the flesh line. Dingoes are regarded as a great nui sance by the stockowner, and ar...

Along scuffle took place, which finally re sulted in detective O'Rourke handcuffing his pri soners together, although, being two to one, it, was a- very difficult matter to prevent at least one them escaping.

CATCHING TURTLES AT CHATHAM IS LAND, GALAPAGOS ©ROUP. These uninhabited islands are pretty uniform m their appearance, showing mountaiBous peaks ana irregular ridges forced up by rolcanio action, whioh still bursts forth in frequent eruption. The acolivities abound in cinders, and are bare ef vegeta tion, but here and' there are sequestered nooks green with, verdure' and shaded by groves of trees. Springs are scarce, and the chips which visit the islands have little chance of finding water,, except in the transitory streams or wells in the hollows of the rockB, after n copious rain. The pelican, booby, the duok, and other aquatic birds, are con stantly hovering about the coast, and in the interior doves of a beautiful plumage, mooking birds, and thrushes abound. The notable animal products of the islands are; however, the land tortoises, the turtles, the iguanas, and the crabs. The Galapago tortoise is of elephantine ),-'. : -weighing frequently r three hundred pounds. 1 1 ) creatur...

THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 July 1866

THE WEATHER. Although: the storm has abated, and the elements are now in comparative repose, we continue to re ceive reports of grievous disasters, both by sea and land. The bare tolegrams which reached the city on Thursday of the wreck of the Cawarra, have been followed by such particulars as point to the dreadful nature of the calamity; but it is some consolation to think that one man' has been saved, from whom the events connected with the wreck of that vessel may in some degree be ascf rtained. The excitement in town j-esterday was intense, and every place where information with regard to the. wrecked vessels could be obtained was besieged ; the vicinity of the Tele graph office was crowded all through the day with anxious inquirers, and consternation was visible on everyone's face as the news of wreck after- wrock was posted there. ? Two schooners, the Caroline (or Ino) and the Seagull foundered, and all hands on board both vessels have perished. . The barque William Watson,. s...

PORTRAITS OF MALAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 July 1866

PORTRAITS OF MALAYS. The two portraits are genuine. . That of Koepa has some interest as that of a very fine type of the Malay raoe, and a somewhat remarkable man. During the visits of the pirates, a great many persons belonging to Billiton were seized and carried off. Koepa undertook a journey to , the pira tical fastnesses at the risk of being ; seized himself, and after marvellous adven tures and courageous exploits, succeeded in obtaining the release of more than forty pooplo, who had been carried off at various times. For this service he was publioly presented with a large silver medal, and the thanks of the Dutch. Government. '? The other portrait is that of a girl of the island of Banka— an island near Billiton, and also producing tin — and may be taken as a fair average specimen of Malay women in general. The other engravings epeak for themselves, and are fair illustrations of the) general order of Javanese landscape. A Desperate Chinaman. — It was stated in these columns, o...
