TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 31 May 1864
TO TOr EDITOI OF TH?E IIAM5A iNDEPENDENT. SIn,--tomish ecclesiasties, both at home and abroad, have labored hard, though without success, to stmin the tide of right eous and universal reprobation which has set in against that body in reference to the late " Terrible Tragedy at Santiago," in which so many ilnllortal creatures became the hapless victims of the greatest piece of Popish tomfoolery which has yet disgracbd any body calling itself the "Church of Christ." The attempt of the Rev. D. J. D'Arcy, as contained in your issue of the ,24th inst., to gloss over the horrors of. that a:iful scene, and cover them around swith the mantle of religion forsooth, is equally as futile and ineflfetnal as that of any of his brethrethren befbre him, who have vainly put forth all their energies in trying to accom plish a similai' object.' "But it will not do. The facts are too wellaund widely known for Mr. D'Arcy over to expect by anything lie canl say on the matter, or by any quota tions hlie a...

MISCELLANEOUS. A SEcoND UrssEs.--An old fellow of ,, very acute plysiognomy, answering to the name of Jiacob Wrilmnot, was brought before the :Police-court. 11is clothes looked as if they might have been bought second-hand in his youthfld prime ; for they had suflered more from the rubs of the world than the proprietor himself. ' What business do you follow' Wilmot?' ' Business? None; I'm a traveller,' 'A vagabond, perhaps.' 'You are not hfar wrong ; travellers and vagabonds are about the same thing. The difference is that the latter travel without money, and the former without. brains.' '.Where have you travelled ?, ' All over the conti nent. - What have you observed? 'A little to commdnd, much to censure, and very much to laugh at.' ' Umph! what do you commend?' 'A ?anrldsomle woman that will stay at home, an eloquent preacher that will preach a short sermon, a good writer flinhat will not write too much, and a fool who has sense enough to hold his tongue.'

ULLADULLA. (FIRO OUR COIRESPONDENT.) MUTUALr Iatiaovi:S?RNT SocITY.--This society held its monthly meeting ionWed-. nesdny, 18th inst., when a debate took place on Rlobertson's Land Bill. The de bate was opened by Mr. W. Martin. Tihe Speaker disclaimed oppposition to the Bill, as a whole; on the contrary, had been its zealous supporter, but considered it suscep. tible of much amendment. 1st. The dilti. culty of non-professional persons selecting a piece in strict conformity with the Act as to boundaries, more especially as to what would be held to be amain creek, &c. 2nd. The free selection. Although this was the main feature of the Bill. M. M1. thought the principle of free selection was embodied in a better form in Black's Land Bill. lHie thought the obligation to fence and improve would be a wholesome check upon the tak ing up of land by persons absolutely desti tute of any means, which lie considered to be an unprofitable withdrawal of the labor front the commnon wealth....
SOMETHING LIKE SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 31 May 1864
SOMETHING LIKE SPORT. A Californian~hovwspaper (the Golden Era) relates ' the. following laughable sporting event, namely, a bull race, for the truth of which it vouches, It says: -" Many years ago, theo members of a racecourse near. Brownsville, on the Man ongahela, published notice of a race,, one mile bheats, on a particular :day, for 100 dollars, 'free for anything with four logs and hair on.' A man in the neigh bourhood named' Hays had a bull 'that he was in the habit of riding to mill with'his bag of corn,' and he determined to enter hiimfor the lace. He said nothing about it to any one, but he rode 'him around the track a number of times, on 'several moonlight nights, until the" bull had the hang of the 'ground pretty well, :and would keep "the right 'course. He rode with spurs, which the bull considered particularly disagreeable; so much so that he. always bellowed when they were ap plied to his sides. On the morning of the race, Hays came upon the ground mounted on the bull...

(From the Home Revs.) One of those calamities which stop for a time the pulsatibn of 'the whole coun try, and fill thd public mind with astonishment and awe, has-just occurred in the neighbourhood of Sheffield.

The place chosen was Bengalo, a pictu resque spot on the Shoalhvaven, and likely soon to be of considerable importance to the settlers around, from its central posi tion and the facility'. with which produce can be .shipp'dd from it.. Nature has here,, in course of time, 'fashioned the high roeeks on either side into the most fanitastic shapes ; presenting in one place a cave most tempt, Ing to ;the hermit; in another the sam, blaneo of. the castellated ruins of bygone days.
