SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 29 March 1869
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh left Adelaide on the 19th ult., carrying with him, as he did on a former occasion.'tke best wishes of the colonists. His visit this time has been a very pleasant one, and the more so as there was none of that obtrusive fuss and burdensome ceremony which were displayed on the former occasion. The three great events which 'were prominent in his late visit were, the ball, the ceremony of laying the foundation stone of the new Sailors' Home at Adelaide, and the races at the old Racecourse. The first was specially for the ladies, and they enjoyed it immensely. The second had more of an official character about it than any ceremony in which his Royal Highness took part, and very appropriate it was to inaugurate a work which is intended for the special benefit of a olasB to whioh his Royal Highness belongs ; and the third was for all and sundry. In ad dition to these public gathering* there were one or two pleasant ones of a more pr...

King, M.L.A. , for their district.

Those inquiries so satisfied him of the character -of Mr King that he went baok pre pared to do all in his power to assist in securing his return. The opinion he ...

/;'.', PROGRESS OF VICTORIA. ' A. very interesting statistical paper on the religious, moral and intellectual progress of Victoria «p to the oIobd of 1869 has just been issued from the Registrar-General's office and presented to Parliament by his Excellency's command.

BUSH ROMANCE AND REALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 29 March 1869
BUSH ROMANCE AND REALITY. ; The Ararat Advertiser, narrates the circum stances of one of those remarkable deaths in tho bush whioh are often attended by appear ances equally remarkable and auspicious. The occurrence took place on one of the stations of the Messrs Chirnside, near Streatham : — The overseer of the station alluded to has had a Bhepherd called Simpson in the employ ment for years past, who was understood by his employers and fellow servants to be the son of an English gentleman ; this statement was partly borne out by the fact that he was in the habit of regularly receiving a kind of annuity amounting to £100 from his friends at home. This generally arrived in half-yearly instalments, and it usually occurred that so long as the money lasted, a carouse, or what is better understood as a 'jolly spree,' was kept up by the re cipient and the favored of bis fellow servants. Latterly, however, it seems that Simpson's father heard of the manner in wbioh the money was being app...

TEE MILITARY IN QUEENSLAND. A murderous assault, says tho Courier, was committed on Tuesday by some soldiers of the 50th regiment on a constable earned Coolahan.

A party of four soldiers and some prostitutes were in the house, and immediately on Coolahau's entering, he was attacked and knocked down. The cowardly fellows seem to have all set upon him, some using then- belts, and others kicking him wher ever they could. They then threw him out into tho yard, whero he was found by tho neigh bours quite senseless,, and severely injured both externally and internally. His head and other parts of his body aro much cut, and judging from tho fact that ho has vomited a great quantity of blood, it is thought by Dr Hobbs, who has attended him, that he has re ceived a serious internal injury....
