CAPTURE OF DUNN, THE BUSHRANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1866

CAPTURE OF DUNN, THE BUSHRANGER. On thr 24th ultimo, Constable M'Hale and the Coonamble police, acting upon information received, visited the hut of a shepherd named Walton, living at Perry's station, on the Marthagy, in search of a half-caste named Smith, for whose apprehension a warrant was out. The pol ce surrounded the house before daylight, and soon after Smith ruslied out, and was followed by two policemen. M'Hale at the same time saw another. man running away from the back of the hut, and although , having no idea that Dunn was in the vicinity, he determined to see who the runaway was, and on getting near him, he became certain that it was no other than the sole survivor and 4most bloodthirsty of Hall's gang. Having called him by name to surrender, Dunn faced about and levelled his revolver, but, as if more anxious to escape than to fight, he resumed his flight. The constable fired, and the shot, taking effect in his loins, brought him to the ground, where he lay for an insta...

YACHTING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1866

YACHTING. THE Xanffa has added another triumph to her victorious career by defeating the Alerte, a crack English yacht, whose speed has been more vaunted than her career justified, or her per- formances here have borne out. The Alerte, 57 tons, was built last yearby Ratsey, of Cowes. She ran six times in England, was second once, twice third, once fifth, and twice not placed. The Xariffa, 31 tons, was built by Sheehy, of Woolloomooloo, for Mr. Par bury, ber present owner, and bas won every race for which she started, including the ocean race to Newcastle and back, against the schooner yacht Chance of 67 tons, which she beat by several hours, without any allowance for tonnage. It was thought that the squadron match woidd also briog out the Vivid and Era, and that a good race would be the result, but from some cause when the appointed hour arrived on the 30th, only the Alerte and the Xariffa came to the start, which took place at noon, Xariffa being first away, closely followed by the...

'MY FIRST BORN.' [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1866

* 'MY FIRST BORN. ' THIS little sketch, taken from nature, represents an aboriginal mother and her child in a rude gunyah, which usually forms their only shelter from the weather, whether |in sickness or in health. Unhappily the crime of infanticide is so prevalent amongst the natives that it is most unusual to see a pickaninny; but there are excep- tional cases, and maternal solicitude is sometimes as strong or stronger in the dark savage as in its more deli- cate white sister. But what avails the . mother's care if her efforts are at best but furnishing another victim for the settlers or the native policeman's bul- let, as is now the rule in the neigh- bouring colony. No one can read Mr. Lang's little work on the 'Aborigines of Austra- lia,' without feeling that a dreadful responsibility rests somewhere, and that more hands have been imbued in human blood than are likely to be en- closed in steel bracelets,, or receive the reward of their deeds. It is not yet too late to interfere...

THE VILLAGE PET. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1866

THE VILLAGE PET. BY BENJAMIN SADAC. " Death takes the good-too good on earth to stay, And leaves the bad-too bad to take away." " GOOD clay, old friend ; and pray whose grave is that ? Cans't rest awhile to have a moment's chat ? I've ridden many a weary mile this day, Yet scarcely met a soul upon the way." " Ours is a dreary occupation, sir ; And one that few would willingly prefer : I've nevei- delved with so much sorrow yet This grave I'm digging for the ' Village Pet.' " "The Village Pet ! and who was that, forsooth ? Some heart-broke damsel, or neglected youth ! Nay-sit thee down, old man ;, I fain would know . The reason why such bitter tears do flow." "J h, sir, when Willy Seymour first I knew, JEfe was as fine a boy as ever grew ; Strong, active, and, for courage, I'll be bound, Among the lads bis like could not be found. "And often would his heart with pity melt When a poor neighbour on his sorrows dwelt ; And many charitable acts he's done Por which poor folks have blessed...

WHEELER'S PATENT AMALGAMATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1866

- WHEELER'S PATENT - AMALGAMATOR. Wheeler's Amal- gamator, of which we give an engra- ving, was paten- ted in America in 1860, and came into general use in California, Ne: vado, Idaho, and Mexico, soon after, and was patented in the several Austra- lian colonies in May and June, 1865. The machine is designated in the Í)atent, 4 Whee er's new and Im Sroved Gold and ilver Amalga- mator and Sepa- rator.' One set of these machines consists of two cast iron pans, 4 ft. in diameter, and twenty-two inches deep, called the amalgamating pans, and one cast iron pan six feet in diameter and thirty inches deep called the concen- trator. The prin- ciple of the work- ing of these machines is aa follows:-Each of the amalgama of the amalgama ting pans holds about 1000 lbs. ore, which by means of a revol- ving muller working inside the pan is ground with quicksilver until it becomes impalpable pulp. To this end there is attached underneath the amalgamating pan a steam jacket for the purpose of heati...

THE DANGER OF IGNORANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1866

THE DANGER OF IGNORANCE. An English contemporary, 'The Illustrated Times,' has been grossly imposed upon by some facetious or mischievous person, who has supplied that journal with a series of caricatures upon Australia and Australians. We trust our English readers, esti- mating them at their value, do not form their ideas of the colonies from these sketches which the conductors of the journal referred to ought never to have published without due investi- gation respecting their authenticity. Lady Don and the Christy Minstrels terminated their engage- ments in Sydney on Saturday night. The former proceeds to California, viâ Otago. The latter have broken, the principal members having decided on returning to England. O'Neill, the celebrated Irish comedian, is engagea at the Victoria, and will appear on Saturday night.

CUNNINGHAM'S GAP. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1866

CUNNINGHAM'S GAP. THE road from Warwick to Ipswich is diversified by openings in the tracks which exhibit most beautiful rocky and moun- tain scenery. The illustration chosen by our artist on one of these tracks will give a very fair idea of an opening of this des- cription, and shows in the distance the double-topped mountain, and which forms a conspicuous object on the dividing range, and the course taken by Allan Cunningham on his botanical exploration in 1826-7. The passes through the dividing range are extremely rich in botanical specimens, including the rarer sorts of ferns which, in the crevices of the rocks, attain great perfection. The stag's-horn fern maybe found in luxurious profusion, with its gigantic antlers spreading from the forks of the Eucalypti, while the long hanging masses of various parasites droop in grace- ful masses, and entwine with the tendrils of various species of the wild clematis. We find here also, in great perfection, many kinds of Solinaco, and the ...

NORTHERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1866

NORTHERN AUSTRALIA.   News has been received from the Northern territory to the 5th September. The River Victoria had been explored, but the results were unsatisfactory. It would not be navigable for large ships, unless at an expenditure of £100,000. The natives in great numbers opposed the progress of the party. The Bea- trice, with the Government Resident on board, proceeded to Timor. Good country and running streams are reported at the head of Adelaide River. The coast had been surveyed, from the Gulf of Carpentaria to the Victoria River. Nineteen inches of rain fell at Escape Cliffs in January. The men are anxious to leave by the first vessel, unless the site of the settlement is at once removed. Mr. Finnis, Government Resident, expects to be recalled. The schooner Beatrice explored the Adelaide River for a distance of fifty miles, where it ran out, and from that point a fine hilly country lay before them. The Northern Territory party has come to the conclusion that...
