Not less than 100 tons of crinoline steels are carried over the Manchester, Sheffield, 'and Lincolnshire -Railway weekly. Sheffield is the principal seat of. the manufacture ; the fabrication of this delicate article giving employment to a large number of its population. Taking the average weight of each set of crinoline steel hoops at half a pound, the above quantitv of steel shows a production of about half a million crinolines per week, independent of what passes from Sheffield by other routes. The quantity of steel hoop...
AN ADVENTURE AT BUENOS AYRES. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 July 1865
.AN- ADVENTURE AT BUENOS AYRES. I was returning from a ball with a friend at an early hour in the morning when I1 heard a report of fire-arms close to me in a house. I endeavoured to break in the door, but could not. Xiooking through the window I «aw a man, pistol in hand, who had just fired a second barrel ; at the same moment a man, bleeding, came out from another door, crying for assistance. I rushed in with several policemen after me, and wrenched the pistol from the first and seized him. Other police at the same time had broken in at another door (it was a corner house), and seeing me standing there pistol in hand, holding one man, with another apparently lying dead before me, mistook me for the murderer, and immediately cut me down with two severe cuts from clubbed lances on the head. I fell covered with blood. On getting up again, I was lanced in several places, and beaten black and blue. How I. escaped with my life I know not. I was dragged on, more dead then alive, and thro...
QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 26 July 1865
QUEENSLAND. The body of the Dalby mailman had been discovered under circumstances which induced the conclusion that the unfortunate man had been murdered. The Gayndah correspondent of the Maryborough Chronicle, in a communication dated the 1st July, gives the following particulars:—" On Monday last intelligence reached town that the body of Wilson, the missing mailman, had been found in a waterhole, about 60 yards off the road, between an out-station of Coranga (in charge of Mr Cutler) and Cave Creek ; consequently the Coroner, Dr. Stevenson, proceeded to the spot to hold an inquest, and to examine the body. It may be in the memory of your readers that about five weeks ago Wilson mysteriously disappeared. He was seen at Coranga, but after that no trace could be found of him, and it was supposed that he absconded, after having appropriated the contents of the mail-bags. This idea was strengthened when it became known that a cheque was missing that had been forwarded in the Boondooma ...
VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 26 July 1865
VICTORIA. The Hamilton Spectator of Saturday has the. following:—" A very palpable case of 'trying it on' with the National Bank occurred the other day in Hamilton. A flash sort of individual presented himself at the counter, and inquired whether he could draw against a sum of £900, which he stated had been or was to be paid to his credit by Messrs Croaker and Co., of Portland. He was politely informed that no advice of the payment had been received, and until it was the cash would not be available. At this Mr Ferguson, the gentleman in question, expressed his annoyance, as he wanted funds at once. The accountant at the Bank suggested that he had better go and see Mr Scott, of the firm of Lord, Croaker and Co., in Hamilton. Mr Fergusson stated his arrangement had been with Mr Croaker, at Portland, and tbat Mr Scott would be unacquainted with the particulars. He however did go up, and spun a plausible yarn about his having arranged for an advance of ~ £900 on the security of section ...
A COLD RECEPTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 26 July 1865
A COLD RECEPTION. In the Yorkshire Sheriffs' Court at Leeds, before Mr Wheelhouse, barrister-at-law, the High Sheriff's assessor, £50 damages were awarded to Walter Shaw, bobbin manufacturer, of Dewsbury, who was the plaintiff in an undefended action against Messrs. John and James Gomersal and "William Thackerah,. manufacturers of the same place. On February 18 the plaintiff wrote a letter to Miss Sarah Jane Gomersal, asking for an interview. As the plaintiff, had no intimacy with the family to warrant this step, the defendants, who are the young lady's brothers, sent a letter to the plaintiff, which appeared to have come from their sister, and which invited him to their house on the night of Feb. 23. When he made his appearence on the premises the defendants seized him and threw him into a horse-trough full of water, in which they kept him three minutes. After that they drenched him by means of a hose attached to a water-main, and then put him in the water\x=req-\ trough a second t...
A VILLAINOUS EMIGRANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 26 July 1865
A VILLAINOUS EMIGRANT. A crime morally less heinous than murder was yesterday committed in the Plymouth Sound, and, unhappily, with the connivance and active assistance of two watermen of the port. Seldom even at a seaport has a more harrowing scene occurred. A man and woman, well-dressed and aoparently in respectable positions in life, arrived at a Plymouth Hotel, on Tuesday evening, it is believed from Lon - don, and occupied one bedroom, behaving as a gentleman and his wife. The former was about thirty years of age, the latter a prepossessing girl some ten years his junior. They went out in the morning, the girl having the idea that she was to accompany her partner, who, it is stated, had long been her support, to Dublin by steamer. Their luggage was taken on board the steamer Cambrian, then lying in the Sound—some of it having previously been put ou board at Southampton— and the pair shortly afterwards followed from Millbay in the same boat, one belonging to two stalwart waterme...
THE RELATION BETWEEN ENGLAND AND AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 26 July 1865
THE RELATION BETWEEN ENGLAND AN3^AME&ICA. In a speech delivered in London on Friday night, May 12, Mr Cyrus Field observed that lie had no sympathy with any act tending to stir up strife and bitterness between the two nations, which had a common ancestry, a common worship, and a common tongue, and whose destinies were so bound together that nothing which contributed to the prosperity or greatness of Great Britain but was reflected in America. At the time when America achieved its independence it contained a population of 3,000,000, and it now contained 20,000,000, of people. The enterprise which had first been entered on to bring the new and old world into instant communication was onethat was, inhisbelief, sure to be successful; iand the telegraph line would be laid by a vessel of such mighty proportions, constructed til England, that it was still the wonder of the World. With reference to the feeling towards this country exhibited by American statesmen, Mr Field stated tha...
DISCOVERY OF A PLOT TO DESTROY PHILADELPHIA. Washington, May 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 26 July 1865
DISCOVERY OF A PLOT TO DESTROY PHILADELPHIA. Washington, May 2. I A plot to burn the city of Philadelphia, as developed here, seems to possess a startling magnitude. There are facts within the knowledge of the Government which tend to show that there are several hundred conspirators banded together for the purpose of burning Philadelphia and other northern and western cities. A letter has fallen into the hands of the authorities revealing a deliberate and carefully planned plot to destroy by fire the city named, on Sunday or yesterday. In the letter alluded to, certain parties were urged to strike the final blow on the dates named, and to continue it until the place was laid in ashes. On Sunday last the passenger trains leaving here were duly searched for some of the conspirators, who were believed to be on board, but as far as learned no arrests were made. In the meantime due precautions against incendiarism have been taken in Philadelphia and other places. It is not thought that r...
THE MURDER OF PRESIDENT LINCOLN. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 26 July 1865
THE MURDER OF PRESIDENT LINCOLN. The Washington correspondent of the New York World has forwarded to that journal a long accdunt of the conspiracy against Mr Lincoln and other members of the Government. He says—" Booth shrank at first from murder, until another and less dangerous resolution failed. This was no less than the capture of the President's body, and its detention or transportation to the South. I do not rely on this assertion upon his sealed letter, where he avows it. There has been found upon a street within the citj- limits a house; belonging to one Mrs Greene rained and furnished with underground apartments, furnished with manacles and all the accessories to private imprisonment. Here the President, and as many as could be gagged and conveyed away with him, were to be concealed in t!~ej event of failure to run them into the Confede- j racy. Owing to his failure to group around I him as many men as he desired, Booth aban- j doned the project of kidnapping ; but thej hou...

PERSONAL RECOLLECTIONS OF PRESIDENT LINCOLN. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 26 July 1865
PERSONAL RECOLLECTIONS OF PRESIDENT LINCOLN. The article with the above title, by Mr M. D. Conway, from which we extract the following interesting paragraphs, is contained in the the first number of the Fortnightly Review. In the first paragraph we quote, Mr Conway describes his first impressions of Mr Lincoln, received on the occasion of an excited meeting at Cincinnati, to attend which many furious Kentuckians had crossed the Ohio, during the. contest for the representation of Illinois, which the future President held with j Judge Douglass in 1858. The main question at isuue was slavery or no slavery in the Territories. Although he seemed to me oddly different from any other man whom I had seen he seemed also related to them all, and to have lineaments characteristic of every section of the country ; and this is why I thought he might well be taken as its figure- head. His manner of speaking in public was simple, direct, and almost religious ; he was occasionally humorous, but rar...
