ORIGIN OF THE ENFIELD RIFLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 7 July 1864
ORIGIN OF THE ENFIELD RIFLE. In 1852 Lord -Iardinge became Master General of tile Ordnance, and at the close of that year he succeeded the Duke of Wellington as Commander-in Chief. Hle found the MIinie musket subject to grave disadvantages. It was cumbrous, tihe barrel weighing 4 lb 10 oz., and the bullet weighing 680 grains. Its ten dency to fouling was considerable-the distended portions of the projectile some times dotached themselves and clogged the grooves, rendering loading extremely difficult, and occasionally the iron cup, instead of merely expanding thIe lead, was driven completely through the oppo site extremity, converting the bullet into a distorted tube, which sometimes re mained firmly fixed in the barrel. In the Enufield bullet which was adopted in 1853, a wooden plug was substituted for the iron cup. It is a question, whether eventually both iron. and wood maynot be got rid of, since it is found that the expansion of a leaden ball, if hollowed at the base, can be eff...

CAPTURE OF RUNAWAY LOVERS IN LIVERPOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 7 July 1864
CAPTURE. OF .UN?AWAY LOVE1RS IN: LIVERPOOL. On Tuesday, an .adventure reached its climax on the Prince's Landing-stage il lustrative of the somewhat backneyed sentiment-" Tho course of true love never does run smooth." In the town of Leeds a young man of respectable station fell beneath the bewitching influence of a fair Yorkshire lass, and the flames of affection soon became fanned into intense mutual passion. The watchful guardian ship of Paterfamilias, and the prohibition of the acquaintance were all in vain. Of what avail are bolts and bars, steone walls or any othermaterial obstacle, when a woman is in love? As usual, the pa rental restriction increased the intensity of the passion, and the youthful pair, seeing no prospect of the Iiipy consum mation of tlsoir hopes determiined to elope, clandestinely to marry, and then to throw themselves upon the tender mercies of their enraged guardians. The plan arranged, the young lady, after a sleepless night, on Tuesday morn ing left Lee...

"I can't believe that he is dead; Imust.go niyself and see," said Father Matthewv, and heproceeded to the ghastly chainber to which the dead was borns previous to interment. It presented an awful spectacle indeed. At one end was a miserable pile of coffllins, the merest shells made of thin boards, and knocked together with a few nails. Some of there wretched receptacles were on the...
BREEDING DUCKS IN CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 7 July 1864
1RIEEDING DUCKS IN CHINA. Going through a place called Po-tee shuey, one day about this time, I was surprised to see enormous baskets full of little ducklings, some apparently only a few days old, and all for sale; their owners bundled them about by the hand ful, and piled them up in baskets, as if they sold them by the peek. Wandering about, I camne to a building from whence some were being carried out. I entered, and here was an egg-hatching establish ment. I went from room to room, but only saw what appeared to be eggs laid out on shelves to be tkept cool. At last I entered one of them, and there were a couple of men with a basket on the floor, with young ducks in it. All at once is heard "pip, chip,"-out pops a bit of a duck from an egg under your nose; "chip, pip," from the other side-out comes another; you see the.placeo is all alive; you don't know which way to turn first; they are chipping all round.: Afteer you have become equal to the situation, you see that the men are bu...

TEr labours of the local committee, Whose members were named at the public meeting held this day week, for the pur pose of devising means to relieve the sufferers by 'the floods, must have been seriously interrupted . by thie return of snuch inclement. weather as has again pre vailed.. The heavy rains Which' fell during the end of last week, and the commenceinent of the present one, at the satiie' time that they have added difficulty to the.task of those who were seeking to afford relief to the distress already 'existing, must also, in many' instances, have aggravated the condition of the sufferers.
