Wallaroo Times. WALLAROO: SATURDAY, JULY 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 29 July 1865

fUallM'DD Cimts. WALLAROO : SATURDAY, JULY 29. The colonists of South Australia generally i will bear comparison as sucli with those j of any of the Australasian or other British colonies. Nevertheless, we must confess that in the recent attempt to effect a little sub-colonization by transplanting an offshoot from their portion of the Province to the Northern Territory, they have not borne out the expectations which might reasonably have been formed of them. We fear much of the want of (success is attributable to the defective ! management of the head of the expedition. Ear be it from us to condemn Mr Forsiss unheard; but after having read such of his despatches as have been received, and having impartially weighed the statements on both sides, we think the most charitable judgement must admit that ,grave mistakes have been made, and serious incompetence exhibited. It was evident from the first that a ridiculous display of red tape was made, and time was frittered away in the attemp...

THE GREAT DUELLIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 29 July 1865

THE GREAT DUELLIST. Fayot fought more duels than any man in France. His aim with a pistol was certain ? but he was not cruel, and he usually wounded his adversary in the-arm or leg* He was likewise a good swordsman. General Fournier was afraid of Fayot, and only once measured swords with him, while the latter had a horror of Founder for having killed so manyyoung men belonging to good families. 3n his rencontre with Fayot the Geiieral wounded in the hand, and ever after Fayot | hunted his antagonist from one ^nd of France to the other, determined to put an end to the *' assassin,as he was called; but the Revolution of 1830 came, and all was chaos. Fayot's father was guillotined in the South of France in 1793. His mother, after the severe loss she had sustained in the death of her husband, whom she adored, brought up her sonat Avmgnon, telling Am, as he grew up to be a man, to take every opportunity of avenging the death of his father. Upon the restoration of the Bourbons, Fayot came...

THE AMERICAN MARRIAGE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 2 August 1865

THE AMERICAN MARRIAGE MARKET. Matrimonal advertisements are becoming more and more common in England. One would suppose that they are found to succeed, otherwise their number would not increase as it does. In this, as in so many other respects, the Transatlantics go ahead of the old country. Matrimony itself is not so comfortable a thing there as it is here, for the amount of domesticity to be secured by permanent residence in a huge hotel, containing 1,000 or 1,500 souls, cannot be very great. And if married life be thus wanting in the quiet and repose which constitute its chief charms with us, the parliamentary proceedings are arranged with at least proportionate disregard for what us old-fashioned prople look upon as comfort in such matters. A man who finds himself rich enough to marry will walk out some fine afternoon, and watch the entrance to one of the emporiums of fancy art cles for ladies, and when he sees a girl with a face and manner which please him, he enters the store,...

MAIL SERVICE VIA TORRES STRAITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 2 August 1865

MAIL SERVICE VIA TORRES STRAITS. The Queensland Government has for some time past been in correspondence with tile Imperial Goverment on the subject of estab\x=req-\ lishing^ a postal service between Sydney and Singapore, via Torres Straits. The last mail has brought out farther communications from home, in which the Commissoners of the Treasury still say that they would not feel justified in contributing from imperial funds for such a service. It is," however, added that if the Government pf Queensland think fit to set up such a line for its own advantage^ and at its own cost, no fresh arrangements with the Peninsular and Oriental Company will be necessary to provide for the conveyance of the Queensland mails between Point de Galle and Singapore. Such mails, would be carried with the general India and China mails for the present subsidy, and the Government of Queensland would be chare-ed merelv — n with its proportion of the whole cost, which would be deducted from the sum payable ...

A NEW ZEALAND " SORCERER." [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 2 August 1865

A NEW ZEALAND " SORCERER." xne special correspondent of the Morning Post in New Zealand says : " The belief in witchcraft is universally prevalent among the Maori race. The most intelligent chiefs believe in it, though they are ashamed to avow that belief in public. Less surprise will be felt at this by those who remember the records of criminal jurisprudence bearing on this point at home, and, the proofs that this form of superstition is not extinct in England. Most of the Maori prisoners who died on board the hulk believed themselves to be the victims of witchcraft. They were labouring under no disease, but they refused all sustenance and died of terror and weakness. In Europe, this dreaded power belonged usually to the weaker sex; but here it is confined to men, usually stalwart fellows, whom few would care to attack. There has been mueh sickness among the natives lately—the result, probably, of insufficient food. One southern tribe, in particular, has suffered greeatly from this...

A RACE IN THE DESERT. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 2 August 1865

A RACE IS THE DESERT. An Arab chief, having heard of our arrival, rode into the camp the following morning, and gave a challenge to ride any of our officers a race for a thousand piastres. The stake was not valuable; but for the credit of our corps, our officers were anxious that he should be beaten, and all were eager to accept his challenge. Of course it would not do to let a dozen run at the single man, so the Colonel allowed Captain T to do so. The chief's horse was a beautiful little grey Arabian, with eveiy mark of blood, quite a model of what a horse ought to be. The match was certainly an off-hand affair, the chief having all the advantage on his side; doubtless his horse was in good condition, and he was a lighter man by a couple of stone than Captain . About noon most of the regiment was assembled on the high steep banks of the canal to witness the contest; and after the necessary prelim" inaries, the riders were brought to the post ready for a start. The chief with his tu...

STOCK-GAMBLING AT NEW YORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 2 August 1865

STOCK-GAMBLING AT NEW YORK. Another, leading operator made a display not less brilliant, but mere meteoric. He, too, had read the signs of the times, and after feeling his way for some months, at length struck a vein. He achieved fame and fortune in a few days. His personal prestige was at one time greater than was ever enjoyed by any I man in Wall-street. People x of all kinds thronged his office, and begged him to give them just a hint—the least hint, and they I would be his friends for ever. If he whispered i " Rock Island," scores of sensible men rushed j to their brokers and ordered Rock Island to be bought. Not that they knew why they were buying it; they had a hint from the great man and that was sufficient. A company, respectable enough, and with a fine property which they were desirous of bringing before the public, actually paid him the enormous fee of 165,000 dollars to allow the subscription books to be opened at his office, and his name to appear in the list of director...

EXPLOSION OF FIRE DAMP AND LOSS OF LIFE NEAR ISHAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 2 August 1865

EXPLOSION OF FIRE DAMP AND LOSS OF LIFE NEAR ISHAW. On Tuesday, 2nd May, an .explosion of fire-damp took plaee in Victoria Pit, Over . Jchnstone, in the parish of Dalziel, whereby one man lost his life, and several received severe injuries. The explosion occurred about eleven o'clock a.m., and tidings of the disaster were at once communicated to the Wishaw Iron company, the proprietors of the pit. The alarm was given to the inhabitants, and, as exaggerated accounts were speedily circulated, a large concourse of people assembled near the pit, many of whom had members of -their family or relatives employed there. Immediately on the rieport being given at Wishaw, the police constables hastened to the spot to render assistance and aid in preserving, order among the alarmed and excited crowd. At the time the accident occurred eleven persons „ were at work in the pit, and of these seven escaped unhurt. Thomas Johnstone, Gjeorge Sprott,and James Sorby have suffered severe butnot dangerousi...

THE ASSASSIN OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 2 August 1865

THE ASSASSIN OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN. Hie intelligence received by the mail on the subject of -the murder of Mr Lincoln,, and more particularly of bis murderer, Wilkes Booth, is of : so "scant a character that we have been at pains to collate from gentlemenn who were intimate with the latter in the United States, some facts as to his life and character which may be of interest to our readers. Junius Brutus Booth, the father of John Wilkes Booth—for that, it seems, was the murderer's real name—was the rival of the greatest actor the English stage has ever seen—Edmund Kean. The two played against each other for some time in London, and opinions were pretty much divided as to their relative merits. At last, some friends of the elder Kean induced Booth to appear at the same theatre with him-—either Covent Garden or Drury-lane—and, by a preconcerted scheme, succeeded in crushing for the time the rival actor. This affected him so much that it led to his final emigration to America. Here his na...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 2 August 1865

VICTORIA. A narrow escape from a shockiug death is recorded by the Inglewood Advertiser, which says:—"On Saturday morning, a miner of the name, of Gisay, while working in -his claim on the Yelclham reef, experienced a narrow escape from being crushed to death, by a fall of state from fhe roof- or-^e: The place where he was worldogx was . in close proximity, to a body of stone which had jast been struck, at a depth of 150 feet from the . i surface. The adjacent country consisted of what miners term " greasy slate." It appears that Mr Gray was rather doubtful aB tov(lie; security of the gronnd, and had steppj^ Tto the mouth of the drivef in order to sound the roof with the hammer. Just as he had reached it, a mass of about two tons fell, striking him on the head and knocking him down, A large • mass slid down his back taking the skin with it, while two large lumps jammed his left leg,. though at the same time they providentially served as a protection against the heavy weight that was...

MISCEIiLAKEOUS SHIPPING. The Eclipse lay at anchor at Eingecote during the storm -which, prevailed last week. On the Monday preceding the gale the barometer indicated the approach of foul weather, and Captain Yeo being off the island, tan to Kingscote for shelter, where he remained until the following Wednesday. The Kangaroo arrived at 1 a.m. on Saturday, but having brought up at a considerable distance from the jetty, we were unable to obtain particulars of her cargo in - time for that day's publication. Her non-arrival on Thursday was owing to her loading at Port Adelaide being interfered with by. the. late. gale. . The boiler and machinery for the South Wal\x=req-\ laroo Mane have arrived in the Eclipse. The Commodore cleared for Swansea yesterday. She ta&es from this port 400 fconsof ore the produce of the Moonta Mines.
