CONDITION OF IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 31 May 1864
CONDITION OF LliELJAND. C The following 'portion of .:leading ar ticle' in the Empi're of May 38, may be instructive to those who are i?iterested in the "condition, of Ireland" ques tion: Thb pioblem of Irish emigration is one which has given rise :to much speculative discussion among politicians and- moral philosophers, and .to much furious. dccla mation amonig-agitators and their dupes. To those who delight in, painting the miseries of hinn and in liarping on the one string oi:lieor national misfortunes, it affords groat scope for the slashing ar ticle business as applied to SaxV ranny and misgovernment. When it >eoughst to account for the strange fact that "within a quarter of a century. more than two million Irishmen left the shores of Ireland never to return," it is easy to say that they were driven from their native homes by. the heartless stupidity of their rulers. This is the explanation to which the world is treated by men who regard the unparalled exodus of their countr...
HALLETT'S PEDIGREE WHEAT, (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 31 May 1864
I "IA.iTr T'S PEDIGM'tEE WIIEAT, (Continued from our last.) Thus, by means of repeated selection alone, the length of the ears has' been doubled, their contents nearly trebled, and the " tillering" power of the seed increased eight-fold. The practice adopted in the case of 'roots of procuring seed from the finest parents is thus found applicable in an eminent degree to wheat also; and it is a very remarkable circumstance, strongly exemplifying the importance of repeated selection, of wheat that of the-.grains in the same ear one is' fioud greatly to ex cel all the others in·"producing power. Thus, just as this wasin' a wonderful manner the case with one of the grains in the original ears so, last year, (1861,) the grains from the largest. ear of the finest stool of the preceding year having been planted 12 inches apart. in a row which was the same distance, from the next row, one of 'them was found to pro duce a stool consisting of 52 ears, those next to and on either side of it con...

We are quite certain that the sympathics of the entire district of which he is the faithful pastor are with the rev. geentleman and his little children in: this visitation of Providence, which cal...

WEEKLY SUMMARY OF NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 31 May 1864
WEEKLY SUMXtKA.RYT OF NEWS. RocKYv RiVER.-A very serious accident occurred here lately to a miner at Mait laud Point. In company with some others he was, working. a claim by the shaft anid driving. About eleven o'clock one of his partners was wound up by the usual me thod, and told those on the top to send the rope down again for "Tom." It appears that the rope did not reach the bottom, consequently he had tolift up his foot into the loop made by the hook round the rope, and then spring to reach his hands up. Being wet and heaiivy, hie was unable to reacl high enough, and the horse starting on, his hands slipped down, and he was drawn up suspended by one foot. When close to the top his foot slipped out, and lie fell to the bottom (about twenty-eight feet) head first. Strange to say, very shortly after being taken up he was perfectly sen sible, but complained of his back. Dr. Spasslhtti was "sent for, and after doing all that medical skill could for the unfortu nate man, he remained ...
THE EXPENSE OF THE AMERICAN WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 31 May 1864
THE EiXPENSE OF1Hi AMEtRICAN WAR. . Mr. Chase's figures are not entirely ex act, but they are approdimate to the truth, and the probable issue, terrible to contem plate to the Federal government. "On st beptomber'last the existing liabilities of till sorts reached £245,000,000. Further locus of £92,000,000 will be needed before next July, and in the following year £109,000,000 more. The result therefore asserted by Mr. Chase of a national, debt. of £i40,000,000 tallies closely -with the re sult given by the previously published ac counts. In four months immediately pre ceding last September, the increase of the public debt had been at the rate of £140,000 a day. Were this rate of interest to continue, the debt would amount to just £100,000,000 more than Mr. Chase's esti mate by thie 1st July, 1865, Itistrue that we cannot reckon on exact regularity in the pace at which liabilities accumulate, that we cannot from the experience of any num ber of months lay down a formula for cal cula...

A PASSAGE WORTH PRESERVING. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 31 May 1864
A PiASSAGi WOrTi PnESEViiGi.-The following, from a speech, made by the Rev. Samuel Coley -before the late missionary nmiv'ersary of the BritishWesleyans, shoula be cut out and, preserved by everybody wishing to make' a foreign or other iission ary talk. It is one of the most compact and comprehensive statiements of the kind we have ever seen:--"I suppose thatno country has ever, had such a power of in vention and stunted intellectual develop ment as China. The Chinese is thelargest. yet beyond its own realm the least influen tial, of i'onarchies. From China no mission ever started, no conqueror ever muarclied. Before all people in rudimental invention, they are behind all people in development. They had both gold and silver coins before the first Darie was niinted, yet they traffic by the scales to this day. They first had gunpowder, but have got little further with its use than to blaze it away in crackers. They were long beforehaund with the magnet, but no junk ever crossed the oc...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 31 May 1864
TO THE EDITOR OF TILE IKIAMA INDEPENDENT. SIR,-Since the lato election I have over looked all, your insinuations and those. of your correspondents, who agree with you in your views.. As I am aware that many of your subscribers attribute partiality to yon, I thought it unnecessary to take any notice of anything you have said, for as soon as a man, and particularly an editor of u noewspaper, gets the name of partiality, the publie begins to take a view of matters the very reverse of whit he intends. If in thi present case they come to this con elusion, I 'shall be looked upon as one who has taken a very fair part. You can therefore easily perceive" my reasons 'for not interrupting you in your efforts to persuade the publhe that the sup porters of the lately defeated candidate for .Kiama were rmen guidid by no principle save that of country, creed, or color. Fear ing.that such an imprission might be made on some weak and partial minds, I wish to avail myself of the opportunity which yo...
