RITSON THE MURDERER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 10 July 1869

BITSON THE MURDERER. . It appears that Drs. M'Crea, Faley, Graham, Girdleatone, and Barker, appointed by the Government as a commission to investigate Riteon'a state of mind at the time he mur dered the Rev. Mr Hill, have at last agreed upon their report. Their unanimous decision is that Kitson is legally responsible for his acts ; that he know well what he was doiDg when he struck the fatal blow, ana that he intended to kill Mr Hill. In tho course of this investigation several ouiious facts have been elioited. Ritson, who has even now scarcely attained the ago of manhood, is believed to be the illegitimate son of a person' of some position in England, and arrived in Victoria while a mere lad. At that time he could scarcely read or write, but while obtaining his livelihood as a dealer in vegetables, he edu cated himself, and at present possesses more than a smattering of Greek, Latin, and French. Indeed, he is able to read tho Gospel of St. John in the original without any assist an...

FATAL DISASTER AT SEA.— LOSS OF FIVE LIVES. On the arrival of the ship Explorer in Hobaon's Bay, a rumor obtained currency that she had run defra a French ship at sea, but as Captain T rumble had not given the in formation to the shipping reporters, tbe facts did not transpire till he had given ? up his official log;.

SUGAR GROWING PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 10 July 1869

SUGAR- GROWING PROSPECTS. The above heading has become quite an every-day affair in the journals of New South Wales and Queensland. In both countries the possibility of making sugar from the ordinary cane of the tropics has been proved conclu sively, but the question of profits remains to be determined when the canes attain the age at whioh they yield their full crop. A fair bulk of sugar has been made in both of the eastern oolonieB, and its quality was deemed highly satisfactory. The sale by auction of some of the lots was duly reported in our columns ; the rates realised were those ruling for similar numbers from Mauritius, so that neither prejudice nor favor had any influence in the matter. The Sydney Mail, has just published a return of the operation of some of the New South Wales sugar growers, ohiefly those on the Clarence, Manning, Maoleay, Hastings, Richmond and Bellinger rivers. The return is not assumed to be complete, those only having been appliod to who were most succe...

OVER-PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 10 July 1869

OVER-PKODUOTION . [fbom the age, june 29.] There is a happy medium between overcon fidenoe and faint-heartednoss, which it is very desirable for every one to attain. But since it is difficult to hit tho exact mean, it is better to err on the side of hopefulness than of des pair. This is especially true of settlers in a new oolony. If men were to weigh timorously and scrupulously all the possible evils that might spring from any given course of aotion, colonisation would be impossible. Tho same might indeed be said of every kind of eater prise. If the bugbear of over-production had been ever present to the manufacturers of England, Manchester would still have been a village of spinning-wheels and hand-looum. There is just one branch of industry which modern political economists assume can never be overdone — that ie, commerce. A glut caused by over-importation is bailed by them as a godsend. A glut caused by over-production is deplored as a calamity, and a thing to be avoided even at...
