TO T?uE ED?ITOI Or TILE IcIAMA INDEPENDENT AND SIIOALIIAVEN ADVERTISER. Shoalhaven, Juno 11th, 1864. Srn,--The announcement in last number of THiE KIArA IINDEPENDENT of your de termination to publish no more on the sub ject which gave occasion to the observations I recently had the honor to address to your readers, has taken me quite by surprise. In your brief review of my letter, I recol lect, you expressed an opinion that it was more controversial than was suited..to the columis of a secular journal. I admit in. deed, it was slightly controversial; but you shduld remember that the article that pro; volcbd"it was, in :some of its remarks, strictly controversial. I have not thrown down tle gauntlet. I merely took it. up, and not until deeply provoked ; but having tdkeon it p,,rallow me, should I choose, the legitiniate use of it. Your readers will recollect that .my cri ticismi O6 the notorious article from the Times was scarcely printed when ITwas as sailed by no feswer than five l...

TO THE EDITOR OF TIIE -KIAME1I NJDL"'PENDENT. SiE,-I was acbidaintlly-Prevented from perusing your last is'uo bu 6nb , in time to allow of mys noticink thiohandsome way in which I was there mentioned by "yours sin corely, Michael Flanagan." \ observrithat you did not find it worth while to comment at any length on the peculiar and charnag toristie features of your correspondent' epistle. You leave, ?t to your friends presume, to inflicitsuch-citerary chastiR mont as may to them seem fitting; and to the friends of the reverend gentleman to dissuade him from again exposing himself iii the columnu of a public journal. In truth the most indiscreet of his friends must see the propriety of doing him this piece of service ; and the most malicious of his enemies would scarcely- hopoto add anything to the amount of derision or pity (as the case may bd) to which "yours sin cerely" has shown himself entitled. I am aware that many of his connection pre viously thought him quiite incipable of pr...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OF TIIE KIA.IA' INDEPENDENT. Smi,-As I am one of those who regard the influence of the newspaper press as a most important agent in forming the poli tical and social creed of the masses of the people, whose information, indeed, on almost all secular subjects beyond their ordinary occupations, is almost exclu sively derived from that source; perhaps, .I may be permitted to make a few observations in, your coluinns on the attitude assumed by 'some of the instructors of the people regarding one of the most important events of the age. The subject to which .I allude is not one of local or domestie interest, or only incidentally so by the effect which it has had of materially reducing the supply of certain commodities which we had almost learnt to regard as necessaries of life. The evenit I speak of is the American war; arid the attitude of the Press of the cnuntry in general in pre senting its views of this subject to the. public, does miot seem to...

NOWRIA. DIsTRnIcT CouT.--,Tune 18thll, 1864. IThese sittings wero to have como on to-day, but in consequence of the incle money of the weather. A telegraphic ros sage was received from his Hlonor Judgo Ciheke, postponing the cases for hearing until the next sitting, which will come olf in September next. FLOOD AT SHto,?rLrwrVN.-This District was visited with at disastrous flood onil Sun dlity litst, altltough not so high as in 1860. It lhs caused nmuclh damage iuld heavy loss to several up river properties, andt the farmers' maize crop generally, which loss will be severely felt, being their sole dc pendance. The devastatin oon the nortl side of the river is truly heart-rending. Two vessels were wrecked near the Crook haven heads withr the loss of two lives ; :rn old mau named lRobert Baker, also lost his life, having beern forund drowned at Numba. An inquest was held before T. IL. Rlichards, Esq., Coroner, and a verdict ill accordance was returnted. Nowra, June 1Sth, 1864.
RAILWAY AUCTION DEPOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 21 June 1864
RAILWAY AUCTION )DEPOT. Fat Cattle.-There is no alteration in this market and boiling prices only can be obtained, and no sign of improvement is visible. Fat Sheep remain at last week's quotations. The floods will probably enhance the value of those near at hand, but the'low price of beef must prevent any great improvement in mut ton until the glut is taken off. Store Sheep and Cattle.-The same remarks will apply as reported last week. Horses.-A good stamp of draught and saddle colts move off readily, but weeds are altogether unsaleable. ?Iilch Cows.-Plonty of rubbish in the market, for which prices are merely nominal, but for really prime cows fit for family use £8 to £10 are readily obtained. Produco''"ale, Railway Auction Depot. The floods have prevented the usual arrivals from the.lI'uter and other country districts, which caused the supply of butchers' small stock to be less than usual. There was much competition, and very. good prices were rea lised, viz.: The following are th...
SHOALHAVEN. CAMBEWARRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 21 June 1864
SHOALHAVEN. 1 . CAMSIBEWAR1iA. (mvROo OUt COtRRiSIE'OiNDENT.) , We have had 'our share of the flood here, but our losses have not, of course; been in proportion to what the people of the river have suffered. Still several will feel its effects severely. Perhaps the greatest suffereor will be Mr. Bryant, who was rafting a largo quantity of codar he had been cutting il the valley of the Kan garoo. He had gone to Sydney to freight a vessel, leaving two of his sons to manage the raft. From the quantity seen coming down the river, it is feared most, if not all of the stuff has gone. Some uneasiness has also been caused by the lads not coming homo,l and a party, con sisting of Ietasrs. Adams, Bice, and Evison started oVdpThursday, to try to learn some tidings of them. Mr. Gibson has also lost a good deal. Besides about fifteen tons of potatoes he has.lost his seed wheat, which he had just put in when the rain came. ' During the heaviest of the rain a land slip oceured here. A great mass o...
RUNNING A WAY WITH A CHAPEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 21 June 1864
IUUNING AWAY WITH A CHAPEL. A certainly novel and interesting case if not settled by arbitration, will come on in the Talbot police court in the course of a few days, It arises out of the right to no loss a building than a chapel, and the particulars of the dispute, so far as we have been able to gather them; are as follows :-About two years ago a number of the residents of O'Cullon's Creek, feeling the want of a school for their children and a place to celebrate Divine Worship in, formed themselves into a committee to gather subscriptions; to iresct a chapel and schoolhouse. The committee consisted of Messrs. Neave, Holdworth, Albridge, M'Cleary, Hudson, Nicholson, and one or two others with whose names we are not acquainted. The design was successful, and shortly afterwards a building was erected at a cost, we believe, of about £400. In order to raise the requisite sum of money recourse was had to members of every denomination, and it was ar ranged that each denomination should us...
BULLI. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 21 June 1864
BULLI. ""(FRO\[ A COIRIHISPONDEiNT.) The Bulli Coal Mining Company's Jetty, which was constructed of piles, and ox tendced about 700-feet out into tile sea, had on Saturday to combat about' as fiarful a storm as has been known for many years. It was aplmrent that on the day named, there was every probability of the lnre"c construction scecumbing to the raging billows. When such fears were cntertained? every exertion was made to remnove the waggons, which numbered somnewhero about forty, friom olf the jetty. When they were all run oil' but two, crash went thirteen spans, malking about 130 feet, taking with it the two solitary waggons, and other things necessary for the loading of coal. It was evident more must go unless the sea abated, on account of the first fall shaking what was standing so fearfully. Such fears were realised, for on Sundayn mnorning it was to be seen that old Neptune had been playing his pranks, dashing it down in plices, heedles of its strength, until de stroying...
THE RUST IN WHEAT. (To the Editor of the Age.) [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 21 June 1864
TIlE RUST IN WHEAT. (To the Editor of the Age.) Sm,-If you consider tihe following worth publication, I give it pro, bonoa publico. When I .was a, boy my father could not grow wheat on his farm. , Soil, a sandy loam, with granite (not subsoil), but bottom without carting sea isand: Analysis proved the sand to be worthless, except for the salt it contained. Infer ence: Bettor put on the salt without carting so much barroei sand, which he did, and proved by experiment every year, that, only for the salt his wheat would not be worth cutting. I have seen him grow 40 bushels per acre with it, and where it was not sown the weeds were higher than the wheat, the straw of which was rotten with rust, in the same field, and all other treatment the same. The theory we had in England was, that after dry weather the plant, from getting a more plentiful supply of moisture when rain came, was so greedy that it tried to consume more than its habits warranted; the consequence was the delicate conduc ...
THE SEIZURE OF THE TUSCALOOSA. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 21 June 1864
THE SEIZURE OF THE TUSCA. LOOSA. (From the Argus, Marcie 26.) Captain Semmes-has addressed an able letter to Admiral Walker, commanding on the station, and no one who roads it will hesitate' to approve the' jurgment which selected that particular man for the'particulai post'he has to fill. Cap tain Semmes is a great deal more than even a bold and skilful commander. His letter is a masterpiece of dexterous special pleading, which can hardly fail to tell heavily in his favor. His tone is courteous, dignified, and firm. The language is that of a gentleman who has received an unmerited slight, which lihe is debarred from resenting; and there is, throughout, an undertone of appeal to the generous feelings of the reader, which is very captivating, at the same time that his conclusions follow so logically from his premises that the reason finds nothing to object. Captain Semmes' argument is briefly this-that lihe, being a commis sioned officer of the Confederate States, had captured a priz...
ILLEGAL DRILLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 21 June 1864
ILLEGAL DRILLING. (From the Home News.) 'Ten men were tried at Cork last week for illegal military drilling. They weoro detected praetising evolutions at Blarnoy, on the 26th December last. MIr. Justice Keogh, in his charge to the jury, said he looked upon the Act under which the prisoners were tried, which was palsed in 1819, against all meetings for I6liing trained to the use of arms, as an exceed. ingly good and useful measure. Heo was perfectly convinced that the leaders of such movements acted only with luero as their object, and that they always took care to get out of the way when any danger arose. While duping their unfor tunate victims, they were handing in to the executive informations against them. HIe would only say that, as sure as to morrow's sun rose, no matter how care fully their secrets were kept, no matter how close their doors were shut, their se cret would be divulged, and by members of their own body. There was not a club or society met in 1848, bhtlitstt 'with...
ENGLISH AND FOREIGN EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 21 June 1864
ENGLISH AND. FOREIGN EXTRACTS. AMERICAN" TALL" TALK.-A Kentuck ian was once asked what he considered the boundaries of the United States. "The bounidaries of our country, sir ?" he replied. "'Why, on the north we are bounded by the Aurora Borealis, onlthecast we arebounded by the rising sun, on the south we are boundedbythe precession of the equinoxes, and on the west by the Day of Judgment." TAKING A RAILWAY TRAIN BY THE HORNs. -Last week a.bull, which was standing at 1Millnathort railway station, became excited and broke from his keepers, running along the Fife and Kinross railway towards Lady 'Bink at a fearful rate. Instant chase was given, but the infuriatedoanmal rushed on for 'about tiwo miles, till, on nearing itIawcarse. Station, it observed a train coming up. This .apiiparently increased the bull's fury, for be at once bent down his head and prepared to do battle with the approaching engine. His boldness was, however, short-lived, for in a" few moments the train came down ...
