NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1865

?NEW ZEALAND. The New Zealand Government Gazette declares that Pai Marireism will be suppressed by force of arms, if necessary. ; From the 22nd of March to May 8th, over £3,000 gold export duty was collected at Hokitiki, exclusive of £1,300 collected at Nelson. This goes to prove that during that period 34,000 oz. of gold was exported from the West Coast diggings. The import duties paid at Hokitiki between the dates mentioned amounted to £4,500. The cost of constructing the southern railway is to be about £200,000, of which one-half will be paid in cash, one-quarter in debentures, taken at 10 per cent, discount, and the remaining quarter (if the Council consents) in land, being 25,000 acres. The work is to be completed to the Rakaia in two years, and the debentures are to form the last payment, in order that they may not be prematurely forced on the market. Severe gales have been prevalent along the coast, and numer- ous marine casualties are reported. The fine brig Kate, of Sydney,...

' [The minutes of the proceedings of the late Conference on the Border Customs question are here inserted at length.] That, referring to the 5th clause of this agreement, your petitioners would humbly submit that, if the remoteness ,,f the seat of Government renders it necessary to resort to 'so unprecedented a course as to farm to Victoria the right both of levying and collecting duties on goods imported ju to the Riverine district, whether brought across Victorian territory or not, it is a proof that a Government residing ¡ii Sydney is not in a position to regulate satisfactorily the affairs of that portion of your Majesty's dominions. That free trade across the border is not restored by the foregoing agreement, and that the collection of duties on colonial produce passing between the colonies is in full "iieration ; the only relief obtained by any of the petitioners .bein" that produce chargeable under the New South Wales tariff, on which duties have been paid on entering Victori...

CHAPTER IV. AUTHUR GRAY EMBRACES A NEW PROFESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1865

CHAPTER. IV. AUTHUR GRAY EMBRACES A NEW PROFESSION. " As that summer morn was breaking, On tho lofty tower I stood ; And the world threw off the darkness, Like the weeds of widowhood."-LONGFELLOW. The old clock of the Haymarket had chimed the hour of eight, and the hearns of the sun, hot and fiery, struck vividly on the hands and figures of the market time-piece, as Arthur walkçd briskly from the old curiosity-dealer's, in the direction of the public-house indicated by Nettleby as being the probable rendezvous of the carrier, Dick Bursill. It was a busy scene. Many of the bullock-drivers were yoking up their sleek, well-fed cattle, preparatory to starting for home ; while one or two teams still stood in the straw-strewn square, their contents unsold. The drivers of * homeward-bound' teams cracked their whips, and shouted to the stolid oxen ; the dogs frisked about in high glee ; and the bullocks trudged sturdily along, with wagging heads and half-closed eyes, keeping time to the mus...

WILSON. * 1 (CONTINUED FROM OUR, LAST.) t OW, during the conver- sation, Nip (like the ' two little sisters ' of nursery legend) ' sat under the table and picked the bones ; ' for, to do Nettleby justice, he evinced great, fond- ness on all occasions for this ragged cur, who, on the other hand, was much attached to his no less ragged master. '* Look here," said Job, in conclusion, " As we said before, you've g.:>t a letter inviting you to come to the lawyer's office to hear of sun think to your advantage, now just you take my advice, (which I won't charge you six-and-eightpence for) don't go.

CHAPTER V. NETTLEBY FORSAKES THE LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1865

CHAPTER V. NETTLEBY FORSAKES THE LAW. " On such a night who feels not Heaven his friend, To bles3 him with a warm, secure abode."-HURDIS. On recovering his senses, Nettleby found himself doubled up in a very uncomfortable position among the various articles of furniture the lumber-room contained. With a feeling of being very sick and dizzy, he managed to extricate himself from his unpleasant pósture, and sat down on the floor to compose his scattered ideas. The first thing he became aware of was the fact of his head paining him severely, and that his hair was clotted into one mass by the blood which must have flowed very copiously from the wound ; moreover, there were several bruises on his bod)', caused, no doubt, by his being so suddenly pre- cipitated into the room. For a few minutes Job sat, wondering where he was ; and after a good deal of dull thinking, arrived at the conclusion that he could be nowhere else than in the waste-room adjoining Foggleton's office. After a lapse of...

ORIGINAL POETRY. A MELODY OF SADNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1865

ORIGINAL POETRY. A MELODY OP SADNESS. BY THE WOOLLAHRA HERMIT. DROP-drop-the meltings pf pity From lonely and sad imaginings : A Pilgrim weeps o'er a populous city, And sympathies fall from his clouded ditty On men and things. Roses entwin'd with laurels perish In vernal bowers ! Still must sensibility cherish Withering flowers ! Drop-drop-the gems of the living, Soon to corrode in the gloom of the grave Whether in hope, or in faithless misgiving, Kindred must die, and how useless our grieving, Nothing can save ! Impotent helps are human physicians, Vainly they try ! - Death is the Monarch of all magicians Beneath the sky ! Toll-toll-the death-bell is sounding, Some one's journey of life is o'er ! Hearse-plumes are nodding, and black robes abounding, Hush ! they approach-and oh, how astounding, Halt at our door ! t Come and see what lov'd one'has perish'd Gaze through our gloom ! Better .for us had we never cherish'd Food for the tomb ! Woollahra Academy. .

IPSWICH, QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1865

IPSWICH, QUEENSLAND.   IPSWICH may be considered, with regard to size and import- ance in Queensland; as only second to Brisbane, and in many   respects as a go-a-head town-may, perhaps, be considered' superior to the latter city. The public buildings are substan- tial, as -well as ornamental, and the private residences of the     merchants, with which the rising grounds in the neighbourhood   are studded, are scarcely to be equalled in the colonies. Ip- swich may be considered the starting point of railway communi- cation in the colony. . The works of that department are rapidly pregressing, and in a few weeks will be sufficiently complete to form subjects for illustration in this journal-arrangements having been made to obtain drawings of the more important works in progress, as well as views on the picturesque river Bremer. The distance of Ipswich from Brisbane is twenty-five miles by land, and about double that dis...

AQUATICS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1865

AQUATICS. . THE Royal Sydney Yacht Club season has now closed, and nearly all the yachts have gone into winter quarters. We be- lieve that the Enid is not destined to carry the Commodore's pennant, but that the celebrated cutter Alerte, built last year by Rats ey, of Cowes, is destined for that honour. The Alerte is a noble vessel, of 57 tons, of great speed-just the craft to please the eye of a yachtsman. She was. to leave England in "'" all April, and may, therefore, be expected here about the end of next month. On the 20th ult. a skiff race for £50, between Robert Green and J. Donnelly, came off over the usual course, on the Parra- matta River. Both men were in splendid condition, and a large amount of money depended on the event-Donnelly being the favourite at slight odds. A very fair start was effected, and the race, for about a mile, was splendidly contested-Green slowly, but surely, gaining on his opponent, until at length the latter fouled a rock, losing all chance of winnin...

GRAND ABORIGINAL CORROBOREE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1865

GRAND ABORIGINAL CORROBOREE. OUR engraving represents the corroboree, or merry-making, of that fast disappearing race —the aboriginal natives of Australia. These corroborees, says a writer on Australia, "are     generally held on moonlight nights, and during the per- formance large bush fires are kept burning. The men, in a state of nakedness, with their bodies fantastically painted for the occasion, are the dancers. The women are the musicians ; they sit on the ground like Turks, with their opossum cloaks folded up in their laps, on which, as on so many drums, they beat with their open hands, at the same time singing together in unison and in per- fect time, their monotonous 'Maley-maley-ma-a-ma !' The     leader of the musicians is generally a man, who stands   striking two sticks together, and by voice and gesture ani- mates them. The dancers usually move in a line ; they strike their toes and heels alternately on t...

TELEGRAPH STATION, ARALUEN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1865

TELEGRAPH STATION, ARALUEN. ONE of the most picturesque villages in the southern district is' that wherein lies the subject of our engraving. ' It is situatedm a mountainous locality, about twenty miles from the town of Braidwood. The population numbers between three and four thousand inhabitants, chiefly engaged in mining pursuits. The electric telegraph has recently'been extended to there, and the .modest building our artist has described is the Government ^establishment known as the station, and our readers'can form' some estimate of what has been done for the place by the fact that it is the most substantial public building it possesses. . CURIOUS MILL.-The mills of Pompeii are very curious, and consist of two stones-the.lower a cone, with rounded top,, somewhat of the form of an egg, with a base or pedestal, and groove cut in it to catch the flour in its descent. The upper stone, in shape like a dice box, fits over the lower. In order to lessen the friction, a pivot is let into...

DEATH OF HIS HONOR MR. JUSTICE MILFORD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1865

DEATH OP HIS HONOR MR. JUSTICE MILFORD THIS melancholy event, by which the colony has been deprived of one of the most painstaking and upright judges that ever graced the colonial bench, took place at Maitland on the 19th ult. The deceased was, suffering, from an attack of bronchitis when he left Sydney to preside at the Maitland Assizes, and while discharging his duties the disease became so threatening, that he was compelled to adjourn the court for a few days, hoping that rest and medical aid would enable him then to resume his functions, but unfortunately the malady was too deeply seated for human-skill to avail, and proved fatal after an illness of five weeks.   Mr. Justice Milford was born at Exeter, Devonshire, England, in 1797. He came to this colony in 1843, bearing the appoint-   ment of Master in Equity, and discharged the duties of that   office until appointed resident Judge of Queensland, in 1856. He returned to Sydney in 1859, an...

GILBERT, THE BUSHRANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1865

GILBERT, THE BUSHRANGER.   IN our last issue we announced the fact of Gilbert's death, and such brief intelligence respecting it as was received up to that time. We hav<f since been placed in possession of the f ollowing particulars, which are from the narrative of a participator in the closing scene of the outlaw's career:-On the* morning of the 12th ult. a man named Furlonge was visited by Gilbert and Dunn, who took away one of his best horses, leaving in its place one stolen from Murrumburrah on the previous night. During that day the bushrangers made their way towards Binalong, and the same night, information having been received by the police that they were camped at Riely's Hill, about two miles from the village, Semor Constable Hales, Constables King, Bright, and Hall, started off in the direction indicated-believ- ing that, as Dunn's grandfather, a man named Kelly, resided in that locality, the bushrangers would, if in the district, be cer- tain to vi...
