THE MAORI CHIEF WI TAMIHANA TE WAHAROA (WILLIAM THOMPSON). [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 28 January 1867

THE MAORI CHIEF WI TAMIHANA. TE   WAHAROA (WILLIAM THOMPSON). It was rumored some to,e back that the famous   'Maori chief Wi Tamihana, or William Thompson,   as the Europeans called him, was suffering from an incurable disease. It appears from   the last New Zealand advices, that the illness under which he has so long labored, has ter- minated fatally. He was head chief of the Ngatihana tribe, one of the numerous tribes be-   longing to the Waikato confederation. His father       Te Waharoa, was notorious for the mingled ferocity and cunning which he exhibited in the wars of the last generation, in which he raised his tribe to great renown, Tamihana inherited all the vigorous traits of his father's character in a less savage form. When converted at an early age to Christianity,   declared no would peyer jfigb*t again ; aiid: thour j living in thb midst bf-: ; iiih!ui...

SCENE FROM THE WOMAN IN RED. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 February 1867

SCENE FROM THE WOMAN IN RED. In our last issue we had the pleasure of announcing that Madame Celeste had arrived in Melbourne, and made her appearance at the Haymarket. On that occasion the piece chosen for representation was Stirling Coynes' drama, ' The Woman in Red ;' one of the scenes of which we give below. The drama is a good and compact piece with a simple story, affording ample room for display of emotions of al sorts, and it is when she is most emotional that Madame Celeste is most successful. The finest points of the impersonation, which was as Hear perfection as possible, was the despair shown by the mother on the loss of her child, her great joy on recovering her, and the struggle which goes on in her breast when she discovers that she has not suc ceeded in obtaining the love she has craved for night and day for years. There was an abundance of excellent ^scenery and the tableaux were some thing to be seen and wondered at. Madame Celeste is continuing, with unabated succ...
