THE GLANMIRE DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 July 1865

THE GLANMIRE DIGGINGS. THESU mines, about which, so much has been recently heard, are situated a few miles from Bathurst, on what was formerly the estate of Sir William Variier. It has been known for some time, that there were auriferous deposits in this locality, but the proprietor of the esta.-fce positively refused to permit' the miners to test the ground- Some enterprising miners having managed to evade the watcGtifulness of the persons in charge of the place, found payable prospects, and a company of capitalists purchased the estate for £20,000, and announced their intention of throwing it open for ncs-ining, for which purpose licenses would be issued at fl pexr month. Absurd rumours of the immense richness of the aplace soon spread throughout the colonies, and in a short tim all the most marked symptoms of ' gold fever ' were discern±~ble-diggers rushed pell mell from other fields, a street was nxsrked out, enterprising storekeepers speedily erected temporary jplaces of busine...

ORIGINAL POETRY. fc - I JIT Hhmoriam. ABRAHAM LINCOLN, ASSASSINATED 14TH APRIL, 1865. I" Know ye not that there is a Prince and a Great Man I fallen?"-2 Sam. iii. 3S. I WHAT mournful cry is this That falls upon our ears, And what another horrid crime, On History's page appears. LINCOLN ! the great and good, Fell'd by a murderer's hand ; Oh ! keenly will his loss be felt, In world's remotest land ! A people's bitter tears, Best tell of all bis worth, His glorious deeds have won a place 'Mid noble things of earth ! A mighty man has fallen, A good one gone to rest, Who pass'd from here as chieftains should, ' With country's wishes blest ! ' Oh ! how unselfish was His bright career-now past As meteor flash across the sky, 'Twas brilliant to the last. We curse the felon blow That laid him in the dust, For in that blow his nation lost Their pride, and hope, and trust ! LINCOLN ! our tears fall fast, Whene'er we think of thee, Who bravely fought 'gainst Might and Wron For Truth and Liberty...

CHAPTER VII. TWO SHADES OF SQUATTER LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 July 1865

CHAPTER VII. TWO SHADES OF SQUATTER LIFE. : " Shame knew him not, he dreaded iib disgrace ; Truth, simple truth, was written iu his face ; Yet while the serious thought his soul approved, Cheerful he seemed, and gentleness he loved."-CBABBE. Down a bridle-path, over which the, knotty arms of the white : gums twisted in fantastic arches, rode Mr. Ashworth, the owner ; of Woonoona, and Mr. Denisher, sen., the master of a neigh- bouring station. ' " I have told you more than once, Mr. Denisher, that the subject is altogether distasteful to me ; then why continue to -press it?" To judge by the countenance of either the speaker or his com- panion, the preceding conversation must have been an unplea- sant one, for the usually frank open brow of Mr. Ashworth wore an ominous shade, while that of Mr. Denisher bore a scowl bespeaking shattered hopes and disappointed plans. : fRThere was but little resemblance between the features of Denisher, sen., and those of his son Linley, whom we have de...

AQUATICS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 July 1865

AQUATICS. The match, made between Richard Green and William Hickey, ia watermen's skiffs, was decided on the 24th ult., over the three mile course-from Kissing Point to the Brothers. By the terms of the match Green staked £100 and Hickey £70, but .even at this odds it was considered a safe thing for the champion, who has been the favourite ever since the match was made, and previous to the .start was backed to a considerable amount at . about two to one. Both men came to the post iu splendid con- dition; Hickey did special credit to his trainer, and was not without friends, who considered his chance by no means hope- less. Tom M'Grath having been selected as referee, a very equitable start was effected, and for about half-a-mile the struggle was very fine, Green's smart stroke being no faster than that pulled by him opponent. Before reaching the Point, Green, who had the outside, appeared to be leaving his opponent, who at length found that he must either draw clear by a spurt, or r...

HOKITIKI. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 July 1865

HOKITIKI DIGGINGS, NEW ZEALAND. -[SEB PAGE 3.] -(FROM SKETCH BY MR. W. B. NASER, PRESENTED BY P. Y. WILLIAMS, ESQ.) HOKITIKI. THE large contributions wini ch New Zealand bas already fur- nished to the auriferous exports of Australia, have been further augmented by the discovery of rich deposits of the precious metal at the scene of our engraving. The probability of finding payable diggings on the west coast has been favourably con- sidered ever since the discovery of gold at Otago. Prospecting parties have from time to time tested various likely places along the coast, r enerally finding some traces of gold, but not in pay- able quantities. At length party of Maoris brought for sale into Nelson a parcel of the -ranch sought for dust. The miners then working at the Grey Buller Rivers soon discovered from whence it came, ancL news of the fact speedily spread throughout the colonies, causing another of those transmi gratory movements amongst the mining population known as 'rushes.'

THE LATE HON". ABRAHAM LINCOLN, PRESIDENT OF THB^UNITED STATES. - -[SEE PAGE ?.] THE LATE PRESIDENT LINCOLN. WE do not remember an occasion on which the telegraphic wires aided in recording intelligence that has created a more profound sensation, or elicited a more wide spread sympathy, than that which announced the murder of the great and good man, under whose guidance the people of the great Western Republic have passed through an unexampled trial, from which they are slowly, but surely emerging, better and wiser, and free from the only blot upon their national escutcheon-rid for ever of the hideous curse of slavery. As a firm opponent of -slavery, Abraham Lincoln first came prominently before the American people-as its opponent he was elected President, issued his celebrated proclamation respecting the slaves, recommended Congress to amend the constitution, so as to prohibit slavery throughout the length and breadth oí the land, saw that recommendation adopted, gave effect to it ...

J. WILKES BOOTH, THE ASSASSIN OF PRESIDENTS LINCOLN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 July 1865

J. WILKES BOOTH, THE ASSASSIN OF PRESIDENTS I LINCOLN. SOME men there are who would rather have their names blazoned forth to the world surrounded by all that can render human nature infamous and detestable, rather than be content to move -unostentatiously in the sphere in which Providence has placed mem. cmcn a one was the cowardly Assassin by whose hands President Lincoln met his death. J. W. Booth was the son of Junius Brutus Booth, an English actor, who settled in the State of Maryland, in the capital of which J. W. Booth and his brother Edwin were "born. Both were actors by profession. Edwin visited Australia in 1854, and since his return has chiefly resided at New York ; the other was a Southerner by residence, associations, and feelings. It is said that he was playing at Richmond when news of the John Brown raid leached that city ; on hearing it he instantly left the theatre, raised a com- pany of volunteers, and started for Harper's Ferry. Soon after this the war of secessio...

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 July 1865

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. ^ The principal topic of interest during the month, has been the return of Mr. Martland Brown's expedition with the bodies of the lost explorers, Messrs. Painter, Harding, and Goldwyer, who were murdered by the natives in November last. A coroner's inquest was held at Perth on Tuesday, the 16th of May, when the jury returned this verdict :-" Wilful murder against a number of natives unknown ; and that the deceased were so murdered near Legrange Bay, on the North-west coast of Australia, on the night of the 13th November, 1864." On the following day their remains were interred at the public expense. From the Yangenooka and Gwalla Mines some very rich and beautiful specimens have lately been received and exhibited by Mr. G. Shenton, at Perth ; some, of the ores appear to be of extraordinary richness, being greatly composed of virgin copper, others are of the usual varieties of rich carbonates and grey ores, so well known as characteristic of those mines, and are wel...

WO ON OONA. AN AUSTRALIAN TALE OP THE CITY AND THE BUSH. BY F. 8. WILSON. (CONTINUED FROM OUR LAST.) HE rippling streak of water seemed enclosed by dense masses of living verdure ; every imaginable tint of green blended together into one rich harmonious mass of colour ; while away to the north the rugged head of Mount Yarra-Hapinni shot up in bold relief against the clear blue field of sky. The granite peaks, which the mantle of -verdure in parts failed to conceal, sparkled , and scintillated in the flush of rosy light, like the gorgeous pinnacles of some temple of Fairy-land, while the distant mountain-ranges seemed melting from sight into the azure air above them; and on the south rose the hill of Arakoon, enveloped in luxuriant vegetation. Now, also, stray farm- houses began to appear, the first glimmerings from, the lamp of civilization, sur rounded by open patches of land, dotted here and there with bleaching stumps that glinted in the light, like monuments to the memory of the...

WOOD'S POINT DIGGINGS, GIPPS LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 July 1865

WOOD'S POINT DIGGINGS, GIPPS LAND. Iii a former issue we annotxiicecl tlie discovery of a lieh gold field in this hitherto unknown portion of Australia. The place ... in which these mines are in is sa inaccessible as to render it a matter of some surprise that any human being, European or aboriginal, should have foun.c5i their -way there. Eveu now that some thousands have been expended in opening up an available road along precipitous heights and over almost impassable chasms, all the goods, &c, for the township have to be carried for miles on pack horses. Tine climate, too, is a close approach to that of Scotland-a high, bracing atmosphere, intensely cold in winter, with plenty of frost and snow. Although the alluvial diggings have proved more extensive than was at first anticipated, the chief wealth of the locality is in the quartz reets, which lie in all directions ; some of them are fabulously rich, and at; least a dozen joint-stock quartz crushing companies are now in s...

The hut seen in the background is that known as Kelly's ; it was here that Gilbert and Dunn, were stopping wh^ai the place was surrounded by the police, and from the window shown in the end of the building the outlaws made their exit on what proved to be Gilbert's last retreat. The body of Gilbert has "been interred in the police paddock at Binalong.

THREE VISITS TO CAPTAIN GREEN. CHAPTER I. MY FIRST VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 July 1865

THREE VISITS TO CAPTAIN GREEN. I BY EDWARD BRANTHWAYT, AUTHOR OF " THE WAYWARD HEART," &C, &C. CHAPTER I. " y MY FIRST VISIT. ONE evening, after a day spent in surveying, I was riding slowly home through the bush in a wild part of the country, when I was suddenly ordered in a loud tone to draw rein and raise my hands above my head, or the speaker would fire. At the same time I saw the muzzle of a gun pointed at me with very unpleasant accuracy, considering the distance was only twenty yards. ' " If you want my right arm raised, you must come and do it yourself, for I have put my shoulder out," I said. Somehow I did not feel much discomposed by this rough summons, I sup- pose one serious misfortune is enough to occupy a man's mind at one time. The muzzle was instantly lowered, and the bushranger hastened towards me. " What, are you hurt? " he exclaimed. " How did you do it?" I told him briefly, while he made a cursory examination, an hour before my horse had swerved f...

II.—WILD DUCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 July 1865

II.-WILD DUCKS. Our readers will be pleased, we hope, with the accompanying seasonable picture repre- senting a pair of ducks, w hich call for a few remarks regarding the habits and economy of these birds. There are at present known to inhabit the country five species of geese, one swan, and twelve species of ducks : we mention the geese, because the bird known as wood-duck is not a duck, but a true goose. Most of our waterfowl are very shy-they keep during the day time among the reeds, &c, and principally feed at night. To approach them when some hundreds of thousands are congregated on some of our extensive lagoons, is very difficult, as every sportsman knows, and we do not find fault with those amateur gentlemen who knock over parrots and gill-birds, when they tell us that this small game is excellent eating ; we are charitable, and hope that our hunting friends like their parrot pie, though, if choice was left to us, we should much prefer roast duck, À We think that thes...
