DEATH OF ALBERT SMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 18 August 1860
DaPrTII o' ALoxRT SsurT-.-It will be seen on reference to our telegram of English News, that Mr. Albert Smith, the popular lecturer, is dead. He was born at Chertsey on May 24, 1816, and at the time of his death was only forty-four years of age. He was educated at the Merchant Tailors', and became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1838, but soon abandoned thle medical profession for. the more lucrative one, to him, of literature. His works as an author comprise among them " The Adventures of Mr. Ledbury,," "Christo plher Tadpole," "The Marchioness of Brin villiers, " The Wassail Bowl," and he also wrote a number of draias and farces, and contributed to iseveral periodicals. Alberi Smith has been known of late years in connection with his lecture on the ascent of Mont Blanc, which enjoyed a popularity unequalled by that of any other instriictiWo entertamnment. Indeed, the public seemed never totire of hearing him. It was at length brought to a close, and Mr. Smith determin...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 18 August 1860
'. To55 5iT0o5 or THs KI AMA iXAMIKIW. Szn,-To looking over the columns of your valuable journal of the 11th instant,-1 happened to come to a story, via., "Leap.Yeir Wooing." It struck ma as being a piece of useful information to a poor bachelor that's in want of a wife. Bsing one of that class, I read it, and was overjoyed to find just what I wanted-an example for a bashful young man, Whois not a?ble to " pop the question' him. self, liut,wishes the. fair damsel of. his heart to do so. This being lesip.year, I. hope the .fair- sex of Kiama will come forward boldly and "pop the qiostion." The consequence would be that we should not have thie pleasurbe of baleholdinig so many bachelor'e taking the Sunday afternoon's stroll-up to tha Blow-hole point alone, But what would be morepleasing than this, ,but to see every bachelor with a young woman hangltig on his arm, and'he (happy fcllow), either swinging her parasol, orcarrysng her.'iuff, and speaking.of themany pleasant hours they would...

MISCELLAHBOEUS EXTRACTS. THE WAR IN NEW ZEALALND.-TREACHERY OF THE " FRIENDLY NATIVEs."-The Mel bourne Herald of 7th instant makes the follow ing statement, on the authority of Captain Darby, of the City of Hobart steamer, which vessel, it will be remembered, took troops to New Zealand from Melbourne on the 18th ulti mo, returning again' on the 1st instant, to Ho hart Town. The Herald says : -" The follow ing circumstance, which had not been published when his vessel left Taranaki, has been related to us by Captain Darby. Two Sentries, when on night duty, saw two natives endeavouring to get within the ]British camp, unobserved.

DOG KILLING. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 22 August 1860
DoG K?LLING.-In this, as in every other Australian city, dogs are for the most part an unmitigated nuisance, being to all intents and purposes within the meaning of the law both disorderly and ferociously pugnacious, without standing the remotest risk from police,-in that respect the race of curs having marked privi leges beyond the nobler unimal. Such is the case in Sydney, where the night pedestrian's only chance of escape, is often taking the law and a good sMht stick into his own hand, accom panied by at least average administrative capabi lities. However, according to the Empire's correspondent, the dog's "freedom of the clty" does'nt extend to the Government Domain, for an intruder therein on Sunday last was pursued by a posso from the Governor's stables, and hunted to death, the finishing shot taking ;place at the fence opposite Sir Daniel Cooper's residence, at the risk of infringing an enactment relative to the firing in the. city. Such scenes have oc. curred several times ...

IIOIRSR MARKET. Mr. Charles .lartyn reports: The horse market has beeu very indifferently supplied with horse stock since last report, although tlioe demand far useful animals is good. Very few fresh supplies have some to hand during the last few weeks, and the market its almo4t cleared of ,ood horses. Now that the weather Dos cleared up, no doubt country people will be induced to bring their horses to market ts soon as the roads are in a puassable condition. 'lThe sales have been for the most port coutined to disposing of light stock, which realises w rices. There is every probability, as the spring asr vanos,.the demand for medium and heavy draught horses, andistrong saddle-horses fit for journey purpose, will considerasbly increase, and even now horses of that class oull readily.

THE CHAMPION RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 22 August 1860
THI CHAMPION RAC B [rnost Mae s . Et. SERIALD.] Tree usual weekly meeting of Tattersall's Club was held at the rooms last evening, the chair matn (Captain Hare) presiding. Business, con sidering the near approach of the great race, was rather dull, and but a very limited number of wagers were booked. Flying Buck, Veno, Strop, and Deception were mentioned during the evening, and Zoo was taken for choice in two or three instances against other aged horses; but beyound this, the betting gave no indication of vitality. 100 to 10 against any thing, bar the Buck, may therefore still be regarded as the ruling price current. An offer to lay 100 to 1 against Camden eurprised a good many of those present, but as the wager was promptly accepted to the extent of 300 to 3, with an offer to make it 500 to 5, the larger of the odds at once raised the horse's price, and was not inclined to negotiate further, ex cept at the increased rate of 100 to 4. We subjoin a few of the wagers which were made d...
