Wallaroo Times. WALLAROO: WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 9 August 1865
'ftMlanra Ciuim. WALLAROO : WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 9. Their Honors the Judges of tlie Supreme Court, or rather tlie majority of them— Justices Boothby and GrWYiorE—are decidedly keeping up the reputation of the Court for hair-splitting and discover ing mines -of invalidity. It is a -pity for the sake of their Honors that invalidity is not a marketable commodity; their extensive discoveries in that "lead" would be a rich "diggings" for them. We were very much interested recently in reading the case ex parte Mahoney, where Mr J. Gr. Dai&lt;y appeared for Mahoney, and while patiently bearing the taunts of the two Judges, he man fully battled the watch with their Honors for a considerable time, telling them at last that " he declined proceeding any farther with the case, as he felt he might be subjecting himself to remarks which he certainly would not tolerate out of doors." We have always held a high opinion of Mr Dax.y, but he rose con siderably inour estimation by this display of ...

j SUICIDE OF A RAILWAY SECRETARY. The whole of North Lancashire has been startled to-day by the announcement of the suicide of Mr William Whelon, a gentleman of high position, and carrying on business at Lancaster and Preston, through pecuniary difficulties and the fear of exposure.

HOW TO FALL ASLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 12 August 1865
HOW TO FALL ASLEEP. The great point to be gained in order to secure sleep is escape from thought—especially from that clinging, tenacious, imperious though which, gi most cases of wakefulness, has possession of*the mind. I always effect this by the following simple process .•—I turn my eyeballs as far to the right or left,® or upwards or downwards, as far as I can without pain, and then commence rolling them slowly, with that divergence from a-direct line of vision, around in their sockets, and continue doing this until I fall asleep, which occurs generally within three minutes, and always within five at the most- The immediate effect of this procedure differs from that of any other at which I ever heard to procure sleep. It not meaily diverts thought into a new channel, but actually suspends it. Since I became aware of this, I have endeavoured innumerable times, while thus rolling my eyes, to think upon a particular subject, and even upon that which before kept me awake, but I coul...

Having learned that a horse had been killed by wild beasts, they proceeded to the spot, and concealed themselves in some brushwood close by, in order to wait untilthe animals returned sifter sunset to devour their prey. &lt; The night was dark and no moonlight 3 was to he hopied for. The hunters had not been long their post when a magnificent lion approached the horse.; The two friends touched ;ieac&6th«:j^ to show they had seen the beast, and Ohassaing, firing both barrels, sent the animal rolling to the bottom of the ravine." There had not been time to reload when a second lion appeared. Bombonnel passed his gun to his companion, and Ghassing sent the new comer to join his roars of pain with those of the preceding. A third a fourth lion appeared successively and met with the same fate, Bombonnel load...
TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 12 August 1865
TASMANIA. The Cornwall Magazine of July 29th has the following as the latest intelligence received from the Tasmanian gold-field:—*' The latest from the 'Den1 diggings is the news brought by Mr Propsting, Chief District Constable of Telby, who, accompanied by Mr. F. D. Stephens, manager of the Fingal Quartz-1 crushing Company, returned from a visit to the diggings on Thursday evening. The most cheering portion of this intelligence is that Messrs Cartledge and McDowell, who have obtained a claim adjoining that of Messrs Stuart and Rawson, have already discovered a similar lead to that in the prospectors' ground, from which they have obtained sufficient gold to induce them to persevere in following it up. Most of the parties how at the Den are well equipped. Mr Stevens is much pleased with the auriferous appearance of the locality. He considers the gold discovered ' reef1 gold;1 that is, gold which indicates by its honey- j combed appearance that it has come from a ! reef, and that co...
