KADINA (erom otjb own correspondent.) August 4. A meeting was called for Tuesday evening, at tKe White Lion, for the purpose of appointing a committee to expend Government grant for storing water. At the time appointed some sixteen persons assembled, and Mr ^Fisher was voted to the chair.

It was then proposed and seconded that Messrs Bower, Fisher, Hooper, Moore, and Harris be the committee. Mr Mullet then proposed, and Mr Harris seconded, that Messrs Nottle, Gaskell, W.

THE COLLIER'S BOY. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 9 August 1865
THE COLLIER'S BOY. Besides the mate, there are usually in a collier of 200 tons three able seamen and two apprentices, the younger of wfcom is desig nated " boy," and what that boy does is marvellous (says the Corntett Magazine). He is, of course, compelled to obey the nca^taln ahd mate, and the seamen exact' obedience from him too. He is always wanted. If-one of the able seamen is ordered- to pull-a sheet or rope more tightly, he -wants the boy to hold on the end of it. If any ^halliard is jammed in a block, or any confusion in the ropes aloft, the 41 boy" is sent up at once either to " cast off' the knot, orreportwh'at is the matter. The captain warits him in the cabin, the cook in the "galley, the mate on deck, and the three able «eamten' close to the precise spot where they happen to be. He is sent aip to untroll the '' burgee,'' which is foul; down in the forepeak foracoiliof rope. It is " Figaro qua, Figaro la, Figaro su, Figaro : giu." And ^ Wbere's "thatT.lboy?'* " Bless tha...
THE COAL-BASIN OF NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 9 August 1865
the coal-BASIN OF hew sooth wales: Mr E. H. Birkenhead, F.G.S., of Worsley Mesues, Wigan, writing to the Geological Magazine says—" Ihave received a letter from my friend, Mr John Mackenzie, Examiner of Coal Fields to the Government of New South Wales,[from whichl extract the following (Mr Mackenzie is stationed at Wollongong): 41 have had a journey of upwards of 300 miles for the purpose of seeing whether the Hartley coal seams, in the county of Cork, belong to the same coal basin as that of Newcastle and Wollongong; and to see if I could find out with which known seams , of coal on this side they were identical. I was able to recognise them. Another reason for my going was, that I had an idea that I could find coal identical with the Fitzroy coal at, a distance of thirty miles from Sydney, the metropolis of New South Wales. I have satisfied myself that coal will be found there; but I must make another examination before I. can tell whether there is agobd seam of coal. I have found...
ICE TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 9 August 1865
ICE TRADE. It is estimated that the associated ice com panies of New York and Brooklyn begin this summer with 600,000 tons of ice ia hand. It is supplied chiefly from small lakes near the Hudson, or from the" river itself beyond the reach of tide, as at Athens, opp6site Hudson, and other places. The largest quantity furnished by any one of these sources is from Rockland Lake, in Orange County—about 120,000 tons - annually. With the growth of the business upon the coast it has also spread into the interior,, where, especially near the large.towns, the gathering of ice has become an important business. The methods of gathering the ice are few and simple, and comparatively inexpensive. When the ice is nine or tten;inches thick,* or, if for exportation, 20 inches thick, the snow, if any, is scraped off by a 'wooden cleaner, drawn like a dirt shovel by one hoirse. A second scraper, armed with a 'steel blade, planes off the porous upper layer to the depth of three or four inches. The ice ...
DETAILS OF THE FRENCH OYSTER TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 9 August 1865
DETAILS OF THE FRENCH OYSTER TRADE. A case, just heard before the French Court of Rouen, disclosed some curious details as to how the oyster trade at Fecamp is carried on. The owners of oyster boats there form a community for the §ale of the yield, and each year, in the month of August, the pro duce of the coming season, which lasts from; the 1st of September to the 30th of April, is put up to auction. In August last, a merchant at Fecamp named Martin purchased the whole at 24fr. the 100b, (by usage consisting of 1200) during the month of-September, and: 26fr. for the rest of the season. Martin in" his turn engaged to supply a merchant at Dunkirk named Lieven, with 150,000 oysters in September at 39fr. ithe 1000, and for the remainder of the season as many as Lieven pleased at 32fr. the 1000, engaging to load them on £oard boats for Dunkirk, after having kept them in a park for a week. A lot of 173,000 were sent ofl, but they arrived in bad condition, and Lieven, having suffered a l...

A WITCH AND A WIZARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 9 August 1865
A WITCH AND A WIZAED. When Lord Chief Justice Holt presided in the Court of King's Bench, a poor decrepit old, .creature, equally bowed down by age, poverty:, and infirmity, was brought before hiiD, charged as a criminal, on whom the full severity of the law might be visited with exemplary effect. The terrors of impartiality never sat on any Judge's brow with more impressive dignity or threatening aspect, than on that of Judge Holt. The trembling culprit was overwhelmed with jher fears. The charges were opened. " What is her crime ?" asked his lordship. " Witchcraft." u How is it proved ? " *' Sne uses a powerful spell." " Let hie see it." The spell was handed to the )>ench; it appeared a small ball of variously Coloured rags of silk, bound with threads of as, many different hues; these were unwound and unfolded, until there appeared a scrap of parchment, on which were written certain characters, now nearly illegible from much use- " Is this the spell? " The prose cutors averred ...
