NEW SOUTH WALES Mr Mace, the captain pf the Lady Darling, lias, since his last visit, suffered a great bereavement, arid the loss by death of two boys, one six and the other three :years old, and had almost had a fatal accident, to the mother arid child in coming from the Gbplwa to Echuca, from the incautious use of charcoal in heating the cabin. Mr Mace believed that the fire was out, and had closed the doors and windows, and had Tetired to bed. In the middle of the nigbt he -was awafeened ^by the difficult breathing of hischildandwife ; heat once called for help, Mrs Mace fam ted ,and he expiedenced some difficulty in recovering her.

THE IDENTIFICATION OF THE DEAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 23 August 1865
THE IDENTIFICATION OF THE • " I>EAi>' •* ' " A case of singular interest has recently occurred at Alta, in California, in which the process of Dr. Richardson for r&lt;|sfpririg£he features of a dead body that has undergone putrefaction, described in the Lancet tmo years ago, was applied with the most satisfactory results. It appears that* on Tuesday evening, th§ 14th of .March of die present year. a dead body was discovered "buried a little way underground. The earth over the body was only six inches deepatthe head and^O inches at the feet of the corpse j and, as the ground had been disturbed by dogs or by boys passing over it, portions of the dress of the dead were exposed. A person named M'Glone first made the discovery, and communicated it to the police, who shortly afterwards disinterred and conveyed to the dead-house I a dead man, who, from the marks of injury inflicted on him, had evidently been murdered. The skull was crushed, and the rope by which he had been d...
CURIOUS WILL CASE IN PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 23 August 1865
CURIOUS WILL CASE IN PARIS. A very curious cause has just been decided by the Imperial Court of Paris. An old lady named Maria Obristowich, died in the Hospital of La Charite, in Paris, in December, 1861, in the 79th year of her age. Her history is worthy of being narrated. Maria Christo wich, born at Bagusa in 1782, was in 1806 a very handsome young woman, possessing regular features, fine brown eyes, and bair~as black as jet. Haying attracted the attention of a young French officer, he carried her off to Grand Cairo, where he held a high posi tion, and they lived there together in great splendour for many years, Maria Christo wich related subsequently that she came to Paris with the officer, and that she was presented by him as his wife to Louis XV3JI. During her stay in Paris, previous to hfr return to Cairo, her existence was a brilliant one. After a residence of seyeral years in Cairo, the officer to whom she bad united her fortunes died, and she was left with com paratively sm...
SUMMARY FOR THE AUGUST MAIL. WALLAROO TIMES, Office, Tuesday, August 22. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 23 August 1865
S U M MARY V FOE THE A U &lt;* U S T M A11 Wallaroo Times',Office, Tuesday,, August 22. xhe past moQtn Has not beenprolific ine vents of public interest in our little community. We liave had some stormy weather and high tides, but the quantity of rain; which has fallen is small. The growth of the grass seems checked in consequence, and feed and water for sheep and cattle seem likely to he scarce daring the approachihg season. Mr D. Bower, M.P., for the district, having returned amongst us dur ing the Parliamentary recess, has attended various meetings for the purpose of making arrangements for the proper expenditure of the £6000 voted by Parliament for the forma tion of tanks or reservoirs. We * perceive that, as far as the township of Wallaroo is concerned, it is decided to excavate and build six tanks, estimated to hold 1000 hhds each. If we are favoured with late rains, so as to fill these tanks after they are made, it will be well; but we can searcely expect it. We may h...

Wallaron Times. WALLAROO: WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 23. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 23 August 1865
WAI/LABOO: "WEDNESDAY, AUQ-UST 23. We understand an effort- is being made to have Port Hughes, near Moonta, made available for the landing, of cargoes from coasting vessels. The high rates of carriage from Wallaroo to Moonta which; have prevailed during the past season], has no doubt caused the tradespeople there to consider the feasibility of having their goods landed nearer their own doors* than Port Wallaroo.. The direct distance from Port Hughes to Moonta township is less than, three miles, or little more than' one-fourth of the distance from Wallaroo; - the road being sandy, & detour has to be made, so that goods would hk^to four-miles from the landing place to the township. . - In the present state of the traffic between tlie two places, it- would seem that the opening of Port Hughes 'would be a matter of great benefit to the Mobnta people. Not only is carriage high, but the delay of getting goods conveyed from Port Wallaroo is a consideration. The saving of adayin tim...

THE CO-OPERATIVE ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 23 August 1865
THE .CO-OPJSRATIVE ASSOCiAtoOJff. A general meeting of shareholders took plnce in their new store, Wyldman-rstreet, on Saturday evening. Between forly and fifty were present. Mr ; W. Blight was unani mously called to the chair. The Secretary, Mr Whiiams, explained the ocject of the meeting. He said they had intended to meet for the purpose of consider ing the deed of settlement, but since it had been prefaced it was found that there was no necessity for such a deed, inasmuch as an Act was formed in 1864 expressly for the benefit of Friendly Societies, and which would be a great saving to the Association. All they wanted now was a more lengthened code of rulee than they should have required under the Companies Act, and when these rules were enrolled, registered, and confirmed by the Governor, they would be just as legal as the law of the land. Under the present Act the liabilities of the Association must be limited, as under the Companies Act. If they found that the rules which they ...
