ATTACKING A MAORI PAH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1865
ATTACKING A MAORI PAH. THE spread of the Hau Hau or Pai Marire fanaticism is re- uniting the scattered fragments of the tribes, under a bond which^portends further bloodshed. Already they have learned that Sir George Grey and his Ministry are at drawn daggers with General Cameron, and the wily savage is profiting by these dissensions to prepare for another campaign, which promises , to be more sanguinary than any previous one. Our illustration represents the recent attack on a native position near Wanganui particulars of which have alreadybeen published. . For tho present the troops have gone into winter quarters.

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1865
WESTERN AUSTRALIA. The new settlement at Nicol Bay is progressing rapidly. ' Large quantities of stock have recently arrived there from Vic- toria. We regret to learn that the Camden Harbour Association have been most unfortunate in their selection of the site of their intended home. The country proved to be as barren as it was possible to imagine, the heat insufferable, and, as a climax to their misfortunes, nearly the whole of their stock was destroyed by eating a poisonous herb. Under such circumstances, it is hardly to be wondered that the place has been abandoned in disgust. Mr. Lefroy, Colonial Treasurer, has returned from England, . and resumed his official duties. The revenue of the colony for the quarter ending 31st March, 1865, was '£26,710 19s. 3d., the expenditure £20,068 18s. 9d. showing a surplus of £6642 Os. Gd. . Mr. Maitland Brown has written from the Grey River, con- firming the murder of Messrs. Painter, Harding, and Soldroyer. This information was received from t...
TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1865
TASMANIA. Her Majesty's birthday was celebrated with the usual amount of loyal demonstrations-a volunteer review, Governor's levee, artillery matches, picnic excursions, and a ball, were on the programme of festivities at Hobartown. The third match between Messrs. Martin and Coulter, of Laun- ceston, and Messrs. Pratt and Joblin, of the Hobartown Volun- teers, took place on the 18th ultimo. Both sides had previ- ously won a match. This last was the deciding event. The Hobartown representatives scored 130, the Launceston only 110 -Hobartown winning by 20 points. The Supreme Court has refused to grant the Corporation of Hobartown an injunction restraining the Pyrolignite Company from carrying on their works at Guy Faux Creek. On the, 23rd ult. J ames Lynch was executed at Launceston for the murder of his step-daughter, aged ten years, at Port Serrell. t The birthday hall was held at Government House, Hobartown, on the 1st. There was a very large attendance. Dr. Sharland has retired fr...

RETROSPECT OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1865
RETROSPECT OF TSE MONTH, FOR the third time successively the P. and 0. Company's mail steamer is behind the contract time. There was no intelligence of her arrival, either at Melbourne or Adelaide, up to the time of our going to press. xne quantity oí gold, received. Dy escort; during the month of May, amounted to 23,750 ounces, and for the first five months of the present year to 120,719 ounces. For the corresponding period of last year, the amounts received were 27,058 ounces and 131,070 ounces respectively ; there is therefore a decrease on the month of about 14 per cent., and upon the five months of about 8£ per cent. The Customs returns show a satisfactory . increase, but are still far below the Trea- surer's estimate. The receipts for the month were £55,473 6s. 9d. against £38,70012s. lOd. for the preceding month, and £47,657 15s. 2d. for May, 1864.

It is stated that fortnightly communication with Australia may be expected in the early part of 1S66, calling at Kangaroo Island. - A motion has passed the House of Assembly for the continu- ance of the branch mail service to. the Sound for six months after the expiration of .the present contract.

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1865
" VICTORIA. -On Sunday, the 28th ult., a barbarous murder was com l mitted in Latrobe-street, Melbourne, by a German named Dotsalaere. His victim, Catherine Jacobs, who was formerly a hallet girl at one of the theatres, was seduced by her murderer, with whom she cohabited up to the time of her death. Jealousy appears to have been the instigation of the murder. The un- fortunate woman avowed preference for a man named Orchard, to whom she was engaged to be married, which led to frequent altercations with Dotsalaere, with whom she retired to bed on the evening mentioned. About ten p.m. a knock was heard at the door, and Jacobs, hearing that it was Orchard, directed him to go round to the back, as the key of the front door was lost. Instead of coming in at once, Orchard went to a neighbouring public-house, and, on his return, remarked a white figure lying across the passage. He at once obtained a light, and found the unfortunate woman, in her night-dress, lying in a pool of blood, her ...
CHAPTER VI. 'MAD MARTY.' [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1865
I CHAPTER VI. ? ' MAD MAUT Y.' " Cursed be my tribe if I forgive bim."-MERCHANT OF VEWICB. The sun's broad disc shot boldly ¡up in the horizon, as the ' Diver ' ran into Trial Bay, steering for.the entraixce of the M'Leay, which here disembogues into the blue waters of the ocean. Arthur Gray stood on the deck, wet and uncomfortable, for the ' Diver ' did not belie her name, and rejoiced in the idea of quitting his circumscribed lodgings, and feeling the firm earth .once more beneath his feet. But. his vexations were not at an end-the vessel struck heavily on the sandy bar which obstructs the entrance to the river, and lay plunging and shivering until the tide had risen high enough to enable her to enter her des- tined port. During this time Arthur gazed at the gorgeous daybreak, watching the great sheet of gold stretched like a pathway of fire across the mighty Pacific, while behind the range of moun- tains to the west the full-faced moon faded away pale and spectre-like. Then he li...

FUNERAL OP CAPTAIN ANDERSON, R.N.R ON the 23rd xút. the only funeral of a naval reserve officer which has occurred in Australia took place in this port. It was that of Captain J. W. Anderson, who arrived here on the 5th of May, in command of the.fine ship British Sovereign, and who died suddenly on the morning of the 22nd. For some reason it was decided that the interment should take place at the St. Leonards cemetery, and as this necessitated crossing the harbour, Captain Brown, of the Golden City, the senior officer of the Royal Naval Reserve in port, at a very short notice, kindly interested himself in arranging that due respect should be paid to the memory of the deceased gen- tleman. Afc two o'clock the coffin was removed from.the British . Sovereign, and placed in the ship's gig, covered with the Union Jack, and on which was placed the deceased's cap and sword, and soon after the melancholy procession left the Circular Quay in the following order : Golden City's gig, iii charg...

MADAME LUCY ESCOTT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1865
MADAME LUCY ESCOTT. OF the varied forms of public amusements, musical entertain- ments, if not the most popular, are certainly the highest and . most elevating ; and of these the finest and most intellectual are to -be found on the operatic stage. Tragedy, drama, and farce have alike been subject to severe criticisms, and held up to public abhorrence as pandering to vitiated tastes, but no such objections are ever raised to the opera. Indeed the celebrated Cromwell, famous for the fanatical zeal with which he pro- scribed theatrical representations, expressly countenanced the opera, which he said could not corrupt the morals of the people. AU ia JUDO, mereiore, to be sur- prised that wherever there s a refined public taste, the opera has been fostered. Any one of the Australian colonies is yet unable to ef- fectively support an opera com- pany, but their combined efforts have for the past four years been sufficient to retain the services of the most complete and talented company to ...

The Protestant Alliance Society held their annual pic-nic amongst the picturesque ranges overlooking Mossman's Bay.

It is quite true that we have not the pleasure of announcing that wells yielding mineral oil are in operation in New South Wales, but there is no reason why such a sequence is impossible, present prospects are quite as favour- able as those which rewarded the earlier efforts of the first petroleum seekers of Pennsylvania.
