CAPE OTWAY, OE "FIRST LAND. CAPE OTWAY. "WHAT Land's End is to the mariner homeward-bound to Eng- land,- the subject of our illustration is io;»those voyaging<to the -southern and eastern colonies of Australia. Cape Otway is .situated about one hundred miles south-west from Melbourne. It is a barren mass of dark colored granite, rising perpendicu- larly from the water for aboxit three hundred feet. Close tb the edge, of the cliff is a substantial stone lighthouse and keepers' .dwelling, erected about fifteen years ago. It contains one of the best lights on the coast. The light apparatus consists of 21 argand lamps, each arranged, within the focus of a parabolic re-r flection ; the lamps and reflectors arranged in three sets of seven, the whole forming a triangle which revolves once in 3 minutes (the motive.power being clock-work machinery^) thereby allowing each plane of the triangle of lamps to shew a flash light in any one direction every minute.

SKIRMISH BETWEEN THE CREW OF H.M.S CURACOA AND THE NATIVES OF TANNA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1865

SKIRMISH BETWEEN THE CREWOFH.M.S CURACOA AND THE NATIVES OF TANNA. During the recent cruise of Commodore Wiseman amongst the South Sea Islands, he became aware of several outrages commit- ted by the inhabitants of New Hebrides upon British subjects, and believing that the most effectual'way to stop their aggres- sions in future, .would be to punish them for the past, the Curacoa proceeded'tb the island Of Tanna, the principal of the group. We are indebted for the following narrative of events to an officer of the Curacoa : "Accompanied hythe Mission schooner Dayspring, we pro- ceeded from Aneiteum to Tanna on the 10th August, bringing Bev. Mr. Paton (late Missionary at the latter place) with us, who had several complaints against the natives. He had been living with the: friendly tribe occupying the village of Samoa, shewn on the left of the sketch. It appears he got on well enough with these people, but there was another tribe on the opposite side of the harbor, under a powerful ch...

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

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The late Ministry having heeu defeated on Mr, Townsend's want-of-confidence motion, Mr. Hart has succeeded in forming j a Ministry, viz. : Mr. Hart, Chief Secretary ; Mr. Boucant, Attorney-General; Mr. Duffield, Treasurer; Mr. Glyde, Crown Lands ; Mr. English, Public Works ; the' latter represents the Government in the Upper House. Should they not gain support a dissolution is probable. Reports from the far North, just received, state that the con ditiou of the country is perfectly appalling ; no feed, nearly all the sheep are dead, and stations deserted. Published returns show that the CustDms receipts from the beginning of the year to the 14th October, amounted to £191,790 ; and that the receipts from the sale of Crown lands amounted to £418,916. The imports at Port Adelaide, from the beginning of the year to the 2ï.st October, were £2,210,544 ; and the exports £1,668,874. . . g Judge Boothby has laid it down in the Supreme Court that the title of ' honorable ' gi...

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

CAPE SCHANCK. THE subject of our illustration is situated on the Victorian coast directly on the sea route from Sydney. A line of rocks, extend- ing from Point Nepean to Western Port, is replete with natural beauties, that equal in their grandeur some of the celebrated coast scenery of the old country, and a pencil of a Stanfield or a Danby would here find inexhaustible food for glorious pictures. ' The Schank ' itself is a feature that no voyager from Sydney can fail to observe and admire. Separated from it by a deep chasm, through which a strong current is per- petually rushing, stands the Pulpit Kock, which in itself is a most remarkable object. An eagle's family have for years occupied1 its loftiest and most inaccesible points, and enjoy the repose of undis- turbed solitude; their shrill cry < andr lofty flight add greatly to the wild sublimity of the ocean, which rolls and dashes its billows against the base-of the rock. The lighthon se erected on this most ' dangero...

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. BY THE WOOLLAHRA HERMIT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1865

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT * | BY THE WOOLLAHRA HERMIT. "WHETHER is capital punishment vindictive, or intended to reform ? One or the other it cer- tainly must he. If vindictive, it is opposed to j christianity, and its practice is a blot on our legislation. Is hanging a man justifiable homi- cide? This is a question of grave, momentous, and thrilling interest ; for if it is not, then to hang a man is to violate that divine pi-ecept * Thoa ahull not IdlW Public executions are acts of deliberate nationality-the responsibility and the elective franchise are co-extensive. The people elect their representatives, who initiate laws which are sanctioned by the Crown ; where- fore each voter who does not publicly record his protest against hanging is as much involved in the guilt of the act. it' guilt there be, as any -other man is within the realm. I hereby record my feeble protest against hanging, and am hence- forth free. Are culprits reformed by hanging them, or are they executed for the moral ...

CHAPTER XIV. MURDER. " One hurried gash with a hasty knife And then, the deed was doue !"-HOOD. While Denisher had so successfully obtained admittance to the home of his intended victims, his companions had not been idle in fulfilling their part in the nefarious scheme. For several days previous to the attack, the wily Gilbert Darke, assisted by the blackfellow Hoony, had tampered with a marauding party of natives lately arrived from the northward, who had pitched their camp oh the banks of the Nambucca, with thc intention of having a * look round.' For a time the tribe contented themselves with the produc- tions of forest and creek. Sometimes a party would return from a successful ' paddy-melon ' hunt, and then would follow 1 the usual amount of feasting, and its consequent laziness-the men sleeping off the effects of their heavy meal, like boa-con- strictors ; while the camp dogs prowled about, snapping and snarling over the little that remained on the bones.. Then the 'gins' woul...

The ministry as it then stood was :-Mr. Cowper, Premier ; Mr. Amol), Minister for Lands; Mr. Samuels, Treasurer; Mr. Smart, Minister for Works ; Mr. Plunkett, Attorney General ; but Mr. Arnold has since retired. How long this com- bination may, last, depends upon the strength of Mr. Martin's .* following '; and predictions are freely hazarded that other occu- ¡ pants will ere long occupy the treasury benches.

ESCAPE OF CLARKE, THE BUSHRANGER, FROM BRAIDWOOD GAOL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1865

ESCAPE OF CLARKE, THE BUSH- RANGER, FROM BRAIDWOOD GAOL. ONE of the most daring feats of prison- breaking which has yet been accomplished in Australia was the recent escape of Tommy Clarke, the bushranger, one of the most notorious scoundrels belonging to a gang known in the Southern districts as the Jingera Mob. A few months ago, Clarke   finding that the successful efforts of the police, and the provisions of the Felons' Prevention Act was fast eradicating sym- pathy with the knights of the road, gave himself up to the authorities, and was com- mitted to take his trial at the Criminal Sessions, which terminated a few days ago. Clarke appears to have conducted himself well in confinement, and gave no rise to any suspicion that the detention caused by his   voluntary surrender was growing irksome,   until one morning, in the beginning of October, Clarke, who was in the gas-yard with the other prisoners, was seen to mount the wooden fence by whi...
