AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. I.—LEADBEATER'S COCKATOO (Cacasua Leadbeateri.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 July 1865

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. 1 I.-LEADBEATER^ COCKATOO (Cacasua Lead . ] .w beateri.) THIS, the most elegant of. all our cockatoos, (if not the finest bird of the tribe in the world) inhabits the barren desolate country stretching from the Wimmera to Western Australia ; the dense mallee scrub is its home, and very seldom are flocks of this tine bird observed near the large rivers or ?towards the sea coast. They breed in large numbers in the neighbourhood of Lake Hind- marsh, and are easily distinguished by their tari-colored crest-pink, yellow, and white, and their rose-colored breast, and under-wing ?covers. These birds are much more gentle than the common sulphur-crested cockatoo, «nd will learn to talk as well. Gr. KREFFT. LEADBBATER'S COCKATOO (Cacasua Leadbeater!.)

WOONOONA. AN AUSTRALIAN TALE OF THE CITY AND THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 August 1865

WOONOONA. AN AUSTRALIAN TALE OP TUE CITY AND THE BUSH. J>\ F. 8. WILSON. (CONTINUED FROM OUR. LAST.) , M MEDIATELY pushing open the door of the ' parlour,' he found his wife superintending the exertions of some half-dozen 4 gins,' who were en líaged in the periodical house-cleaning ; tor, to quote Mrs. Denisher's own words. " she couldn't abear dirt nor pride." She was a vulgar-looking little wo- man, with a florid complexion, and a disagreeable habit of regarding every one around her with suspicion, as if a notice of ' no trust' was perpetually hanging up in her mind, on the prin- ciple of mistrusting everybody, and ' finding them out some day.' Moreover, her thoughts assumed very unpleasant shapes when they came forth in the shape of words ; and when she was in a passion, they came out with such vigour and in such crowds, that you might fancy her mouth a machine for the formation of phrases bitter and sharp. However, Nature, when granting her a flow of language, had stinted her...

What can be said of tho human mind?] TIIKV fancy me demented when I sing of spirit-things Uprising from the chrysali of my imaginings ; As if my inner-being were incapable of thought Beyond the so-called sciences by mercenaries taught ; But neither ancient literature, nor flow of modern speech, With all the arts of sophistry that desks and pulpits teach Can check the aspirations of my genius to explore Regions of human progress never hinted of before. I see no reason why I may not grasp eternal truths Beyond the orthodox belief of venerable youths : Communing with my spirit-self, new generating pow'rs Quicken as I advance in thought before the passing hours, And thus, in love with purity, I hate that horrid creed Which falsely styles humanity an all-accursed seed. ****** 1 love ideas, not echoes from old ...

INTERCOLONIAL EXHIBITION OF MERINO WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 August 1865

INTERCOLONIAL EXHIBITION OF MERINO WOOL. IN January last an exhibition of merino wool, open to all the colonies, took place at Melbourne. The results were reported in our February number. The arrangement, as described by Messrs. Cunningham and Macredie, of the Australian Wool Stores, was "that the wool should bedividedintothreeclasses, of which thefirst two were to determine the greatest value of sixty fleeces, whether washed or greasy ; and the third was merely to determine the highest value per pound. Each exhibitor had to state the time during which the wool had been growing ; and, as that exceeded or fell short of twelve months, -weight was deducted or added, so aa to put all the competitors on the same footing. Two bales were sent in for each class, one to be valued and afterwards sold by auction here, the other to be sent to London to be valued and disposed of there. The brands put upon the bales when they were sent in were not those of the station, but private marks known onl...

ADDRESS TO MRS. LINCOLN. AT a meeting of the Municipal Council of Sydney, on the 17th ult. the following address of condolence to Mrs. Lincoln was unanimously adopted in the name of the Corporation and Citizens of Sydney : "To MRS. LINCOLN. " Madam,-We, the Municipal Council of the City of Sydney, in the British colony of New South Wales, desire on behalf of the citizens of this city to express to you our deep-felt sympathy on the lamentable occurrence which has led to the untimely death of your husband, the late President of the United States of America. "If any consolation can be experienced on such an occasion when the almost universal feeling is that of the deepest sorrow, it must arise from the knowledge that in the history of your country there does not exist a name which, from its association with the momentous events of his time, will be more honoured and reverenced than that of Abraham Lincoln.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The Government schooner Blanche was totaly wrecked at Wallaro during the gale of the 25th ult., no lives were lost. The prospectus of the South Australian Coal Company has been pixblished. Capital, £10,000 ; .number of : shares, one. thousand,. The object proposed is trading-and dealing in coal.. A nugget, weighing'15 dwts. ,.. has been obtained from the Echunga gold-fields. Mr. Bonny will probably supersede Mr. Finnis as Government Resident at Adam's Bay. Mr. J. Stowe has written the Advert ¡ser a report of Mr. Finnis's conduct, which, if true, proves him utterly destitute of capacity to fill his present position. The Rev. W. Taylor is at present at Adelaide, where his ministrations are much appreciated. On the 6th he preached to an audience of 3000 persons. . A vessel will be despatched to Adam's Bay during the month. It is proposed to erect a new theatre at Adelaide.

FLAX DRESSING IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 August 1865

FLAX DRESSING BY THE MAORIES, NEW ZEALAND. 1. ?Rf?--' FLAX DRESSING IN NEW ZEALAND. I THE accompanying view, taken by our artist in the neigh- bourhood of the Waitara, Taranaki (with Mount Egmont in the distance), illustrates in a striking degree the remarkable features of New Zealand landscape, and the mode of preparing the native flax, which is to be found growing so luxuriously in the North Island. The manner of preparing or dressing this plant is simple but tedious, and is done almost entirely by the women. The flax, after being cut and dried a little, is divided into stripes of about an inch in width. The epidermis, or outer green fibres, are then scraped .off with a mussel shell or any other instrument. The inner fibres being thus exposed are easily separated, and the greatest care is taken to preserve all the fibres as straight as possible, in this and the subsequent operations. To this pre- caution the great strength of the cordage manufactured by the natives is due. After t...

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

NEW ZEALAND. Mr. Weld has resigned the Colonial Secretaryship, which has been accepted by Mr. Richmond. Mr. Weld is still considered Premier. His Excellency the Governor opened Parliament, at Welling- ton, on Wednesday, the 2Gth July, at two o'clock. The speech was somewhat lengthy, and contained the following remarks relative to Maori affairs :-" Pending the decision of the Home Government, I determined therefore to avail myself of the ser- vices of a portion of the Imperial troops, so long as they remained in the colony, for the establishment of order in the district between Taranaki and Wanganui, and I issued instruc- tions accordingly to Lieutenant-General Cameron, which will be laid before you. Contrary to my anticipations, however, con- siderable delay took place, which involved consequences fraught with disaster, and which led to fresh outbreaks in other parts of the colony. I therefore ordered the Colonial Forces to ad- vance against the Wereroa pa,-a movement which has resu...

BUSH HOTEL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 August 1865

BUSH HOTEL. RESIDENTS in Australia will readily recognise in the Royal Hotel a type of the old bush hostelry of former days of outly- ing country districts, and more distant readers will learn some- thing of Australian bush architecture by our engraving. The bush hotel is generally of the most primitive description, little better than a sort of aristocratic extensive gunyah ; walls of slab and roof of bark. The hotelkeeper is also generally a store- keeper and postmaster, these avocations being found to cöntri bute to the success of the hotel business, the arrival of the weekly or bi-weekly mail being sufficiently important to attract visitors from the neighbouring stations, to whom the receipt of a letter or newspaper forms a change in the monotony of station life. The shearing season is true harvest for the bush hotel ; shearers and shepherds, with plethoric purses, find their way to the bar, and at once place their ' orders '. in the publican's hands, to be ' sweated out ' by the...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 August 1865

VICTORIA. The first dead lock that has occurred since responsible Govern- ment was granted to the Australian colonieshas been brought about by the dogged pertinacity which the Upper Chamber has evinced in its opposition to the present administration. The Legislative Council never did possess a great share of the public confidence. True, its members are elected by ballot, and the electors must be possessed of a qualification sufficiently high to please the most ultra-conservative ; but unfortunately the iegal qualification for candidates is so high as to restrict the choice of the electors within a very limited circle ; and as thoBe within that circle include few- either of the most intellectual, the most moral, or the most honorable, it is not surprising that the attempfcof the M'Cul loch Ministry to alter the constitution of the Upper House, and reduce the property qualification requisite for candidates, should be looked upon by these very select ' Lords ' as the height of impudenc...
