TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 October 1865

TASMANIA. I A _,1_£_x._1, ? i , . i i . . , . ? jx mumer oí a most revolting and. brutal character had been committed at Glenorchy, on the 12th ultimo, the victims- j being the chilclreu of a man named Johnson, who resided in a ! bark hut at Tolosa. The father and mother, who are hard- j working people, were in the habit of leaving the hut in the ! charge of the girl, aged about ten years, and the boy eight years. j During the absence of the parents the murders were committed.. j When first discovered, the girl was quite dead, with three great i wounds on her head. The boy was still living, but quite in- j sensible, and died during the night. Information was conveyed j to the Glenorchy police, and Superintendent Hunter put all j his available force in motion to discover the perpetrator, and on ; I the following day the supposed murderer of the two uufortu- j I nate children was apprehended in Hobart Town, at about half- | past ll, by Superintendant Hunter and Constable Jones.

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 October 1865

NEW ZEALAND. ' The expedition despatched to the East Coast to punish the murderers of Mri Volknér arrived safely off Opotiki. Three hundred men, under Major Brassy, landed first, and took up a position, expecting that the troops per Huntress would be landed soon after ; but the latter vessel having been run ashore by Captain Levy, who Undertook to pilot the fleet, the rebels surrounded them ; and, had the attack been made, the troops would probably have been defeated. Fortunately the rebeka made no hostile demonstration until the following day, by which time two hundred men had been landed from the Huntress. An attack was then made by the friendly natives under Major Brassy's command. The rebels fell back before the skirmishers, but were hotly pursued by the Arawas, who captured their pah, which was entirely destroyed. A number of outlying whares were also destroyed. The troops took up a position commanding the place, and martial law was proclaimed throughout the district. Captain L...

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OP THE LATE MR. JUSTICE WISE. EDWARD WISE, late one of the judges of the Supreme Court of New South Wales, was a native of the Isle of Wight, England, and was born August 13th, 1818. His father, Edward Wise, Esq., late of Hillgrove House, Bembridge, Jsle of Wight, was a resident in the Isle for upwards of 60 years, and died about two years ago in a ripe old age. He was a mau of singular benevolence of character, and was well known and univers- ally respected. The late judge was his se- cond s->n. After receiving the rudiments of a good education, he was placed at Rugby, under the care of the well known Dr. Arnold; Mr. Wise continued at Rugby for five or six years, and when he quitted he was one of the four youths who stood highest in this great school. After leaving Rugby, Mr. Wise studied for the bar as pupil to W. Oke Edye, Esq., of the Temple. He brought to the study of law the same industry and perseverance which had marked his life at Rugby. He was called...

NEW ZEALAND: GoVERNMENT HOUSE, AUCKLAND, THE LATE RESIDENCE OF SIR GEORGE GREY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 October 1865

NEW ZEALAND : Go VERNMENT H O IT S E, AUCKLAND, THE LATE RESIDENCE OF SIB GEORGE GREY. r\_ *_ ITOVERNMENT House Auckland, of which ail engraving appears in ano- ther page, was built about five years ago, on the site of the former residence of the Governor, and whick' was destroyed by fire a few years previously. The grounds are planted with English oaks and other trees, which afford both shade and shelter ; and the lawn and walks are neatly laid out. The situ- ation is pretty and conve- nient, being close to the town, and commands a view of the flagstaff and of the entrance into the^ harbor. At ¡present, the place may be considered, uninhabited, the seat of Government having been recently removed to Wel- lington, where, we pre- sume, a suitable vice- regal mansion will be provided for Her Mai est v's representative. VIEW OF AUCKLAND. AUCKLAND, the capital of the province of the same name, lately the seat of the Government of New Zealand, is beautifully situated on North Island, on a...

MORPETH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 October 1865

MORPETH. THE town of Morpeth is situated on the Hunter River, at the highest point navigable for steamers of any size. It is, pro- perly speaking, the port of Maitland, from whence it is distant about four miles. The town contains about one thousand in- habitants. It is connected with Maitland, Newcastle, and Singleton, by the Great Northern Railway, the extension of which will greatly tend to advance the interests of Morpeth ; and in a few years we may expect it not only to be the prin- cipal depot of the entire agricultural produce of the Hunter River district, but also of the immense tract of country lying between the Bogan, Nammoy, and the sea coast. Trade with Sydney is at present carried on by two lines of steamers, the A. S. N. and Hunter River S. N. Companies, who vie in providing the finest accommodation and the fastest boats. Passengers leaving Sydney at ll p.m. arrive in Morpeth next morning, and are enabled to leave again for Sydney the same evening. EXPLOSIVE COMPOUNDS ...

MR. E. FOWLER'S POTTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 October 1865

              MR. E. FOWLER'S POTTERY.   WE have recently had the pleasure of inspecting the Pottery Manufactory of Mr. E. Eowier, situate at Camperdown, and must candidly admit that we were much surprised at its great extent and importance ; in truth we had no idea so extensive a business in pottery ware was carried on in New South Wales, and were highly gratified by witnessing the moulding and making up of various kinds of useful articles—such as drain pipes, ginger beer bottles, &c, and the extraordinary rapidity with   which some of these articles were made by manipulation alone. It may be thought surprising that though situated at so short a distance from Sydney, so few of our fellow-citizens are acquainted   with the existence of a manufactory of many requisites of daily life on so extensive a scale, and which has almost entirely &nb...

HE wind swept dismally down the long mountain-spurs, as the young overseer looked from the door of his hut, and speculated on the probable determination of the weather, for up to that hour it evidently halted between two opinions, and hadn't at all decided as to whether it would assume a merry mood or a dull one. Sometimes the sun would gleam out, red and fiery, edging and tipping all the leaves with gold, and blazing on the rough grimy boles of the iron-bark trees ; anon, a misty cloud flying low would scud between the sun and the earth, and its huge heavy shadow trailed wearily over the grass, while...

THE ESCORT RETURNS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1865

THE ESCORT RETURNS. THE Escorts Returns for the ten months of the present year, ending 31st of Octo- ber, ¡show the amount of gold received during that period, from the several gold-fields to he 230,934 ounces, against 256,593 ounces during the same period of 1864. There is, therefore, a decrease ?against the present year of 25,659 ounces, or about 10 per cent, of the gross yield. The receipts for October amounted only to 1.9,303 ounces, being the smallest quantity brought down for several years ; in fact, little more than the Southern «seort alone used to be. During the past portion of this year the amounts received from the several gold districts were as; i o 11 o w :-Western, 118,159 ounces ; Southern, 95,373 ounces ; Northern, 17,402 ounces. For the same period of 1864 the amounts were-Western, 118,754 ounces; Southern, 113,936 ounces; Northern, 23,903 ounces. It will thus be seen, that while the Western shows a decline of only 595. ounces, the Southern has fallen off 18,563 oun...

NON-ARRIVAL OF THE MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1865

NON-ARRIVAL OF THE MAIL. "THE mail is late again" has become a Êhrase so common, that we might always eep it in type. The P. and 0. Company appear determined to teach Australians that they must not expect the contract to be car- ried out as contracts - usually are. What right have we to complain? Are we not under vast obligations to this most obliging company for sending their " fine vessels " : here at all? And this being so, how ungrate- ful we must be to grumble !

HALF-YEARLY MEETINGS OF JOINT STOCK COMPANIES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1865

HALF-YEARLY MEETINGS OF JOINT STOCK COMPANIES. SEVERAL local joint stock companies held their half-yearly meetings during the month. The balance sheets have been on the whole satisfactory. The Bank of New South Wales showed nett profits amounting to £108,212j from which a dividend of 15 j per cent, per annum, and 5 per cent, bonus was declared. The I New South Wales Marine Assurance Company declared a divi I dendof 20 per cent, per annum, and increased their reserve fund to £20,000.

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1865

TASMANIA. A meeting has been held at Launceston to form a Launceston and Deloraine Hail way Company. The sum of £20,000 was subscribed in the room. The company will start under most favourable auspices. Mr. Causdell has been returned to the Legislative Assembly for Hobart Town by a majority of 210 over Mr. Robertson. This is regarded as a great victory by the advocates of a main line of railway between the north and the south. William Griffiths has been found guilty of the murder of two children at Glenorchy ; he evinced the most stolid conduct dur- ing his trial, which lasted nearly two days. His being seen with the shingling hammer in his belt-the deadly instrument by which the murders were committed-and his departure from the scene of the dreadful transaction with the clock in his hand even this criminatory testimony was powerless to move a feature of the culprit's face. The spriug has set in with unusual warmth. The crops be- tween Hobart Town and Oatlands look very promising, a...

YACHTING] The R.S.Y. Squadron made the opening trip of the season on , Saturday, Nov. 4. The weather was gloriously fine, perhaps a trifle calmer than one could wish.
