THE DESERT OF SAHARA. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 17 May 1864
THE DESERT OF SAHARA. The discoveries of recent Africanr explorers have dispelled many of thle popalar notions concerning tle great desert of Sahara. It used to be described as -a nearly level sandy plain. This plain, it is now ascertaiied, does .not exist; except at -its eastern and western extremrities. The central portionis rise, in tle form of terraces, to 900 or 1200 feet above the valleys of the Atlas and Soudan. They are interspersed with ravines rind granite hills. lBarth speaks of mountains 4000 or 5000 feet high. In general, however, the surface of the desert is flat or slightly undulating ;. in some places covered with a thick bed of sand, in others hard and flinty. Every aspect conlirms the opinion of Humboldt: that the desert is a bed of a former sea, elevated by geological convulsions. The traveller, almost at every step, meets with mounds of fossil shells and other debris of marine. animals. There are immense deposits of rock, salt, in some places as pure as marble, a...

KIAMA POLICE COURT. TUESDAY, MAY 10. (Before Messrs. Kendall and Colley.) PIERIY V. CARIIEILRRY. William Perry, of Jamberon, charged F. B. Carbcrry, of same place, with stealing or taking by force, a bundle of cabbage ansd a coat, valued in all at 5s. Carberry, in dlcfence, stated tlhant lie certainly did take thle articles named from plaintiff, belioving them to be stolen from Mr. Monefy of Jambreoo. He (Carberry) recognised the coat as Mr. Meonofy's, to whom he had returned it. It was evident there rwas no intention on the part of de fendant to steal; still the fact of taking them by force compelled tile Beneh to fine him 5s. with costs of court and profes sional costs (one guinea), in default, seven days in gaol. OODDARD V. KINGO-ASSAULT. From the evidence of senior constable Goddard, it appeared that whlile on duty at the polling-place, Jamberoo, on the 29th April last, the defendant King, who was somewhat the worse for drink, came up and grappled him, saying, "D-d if I don't th...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 17 May 1864
THE tidings which have arrived almost simultaneously of warlike operations car rieA on with indifferent success by Britisl troops in New Zealand, and of a too pro bable outbreak of a European war, are not of a character very gratifying to the senti ment of philanthropy, or to that of national honour. It seems at first sight almost a violation of the natural order of things that' a strong British force supplied, as it ap pears, with the most improved and power ful appliances of scientific warfare, should, under any circumstances, be foiled even.by a superior number of valiant savages in an attack on fortifications of rude- and primi tive construction. Journalists, who must find something to say on every subject that presents itself with the least proninence to tile eyes of the world;- whlo-jjustly value tie lives and limbs of our bravo soldiers,though, like CAsso,'thle 'arithectician, they " never set a squadron/in the field," are ready to assert,'if not to- demonstrate, that such a ...
