A VERY CLEVER SCOUNDREL. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 9 September 1865
A YERY CLEVER SCOUNDREL. If we are to believe sensation novelists, detective policemen are the most knowing set of fellows on the face of the earth. There is not a move on the board that they are not prepared for ; they know everybody and everything; they have a forty-Wopdin power of altering their personal appearance; are far to old birds to be caught with any possible chaff; and are quite prepared to bring to j ustice any particular thief in any particular quarter of London at a moment's notice. They employ mysterious agencies; they know a professed thief by instinct, and an occasional offender by the expression of the countenance. So preternatural are their memories that they can enumerate off hand the number of convictions recorded against any unfortunate "prig "who has "got. into trouble "for the twentieth time, and address him familiarly by all the nicknames he was ever known by. Yet somehow a tolerably large number of offences are never traced to the perpetrators ; thieves an...

QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 9 September 1865
QUEENSLAND. "We have Queenslandpapers to the 14th inst. The Daily Ghmrdian of that date devotes nearly the whole of the two pages of its supplement to the publication of the. private journal of the surveyor attached to Messrs. P. and A. Jardine's " Overland Expedition to Cape York." The latter will be read with great interest by all who wish .to study the subject of Australian exploration. Beferrihg to the subject of the dangerous attitude of the natives at Tfcookwood, the MocJc hampton News of the 9th inst. states that "a portion of the Eockhampton police force left town on Friday night, for the purpose of preserving order on Mr Cowper's station, Sookwood.

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 9 September 1865
NEW SOUTH WALES. Dbiive: anb Eush Iiots.—A few months ago, says tlie Marengo correspondent of] Yass Courier, a decently-clad mail, with a. respectable address, rode one Sabbath afternoon into Marengo, and applied for liquor at our only but was refused, and that very properly so ; because the landlord plainly saw that he had already swallowed sufficient. He then proceeded to our post office, andasked the postmaster to send for some drink- The reply was, " Do you know what day it is; be off or the police shall be sent for." The horse man simply bowed his head, said " Thank you/' and rode on, taking the Gap road. ] Eight days after, that man, who was I formerly a large cattle owner, died! It appears that he found his way upon the above-mentioned Sunday to a notorious bush inn, not 100 miles from Marengo, where he soon exchanged hishorse, saddle, | bridle and all he had for drink, and in! three or four days naught remained of him except "the horrors." Being now, i in a business view, us...

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 9 September 1865
lOscxixAsnbus sS^ping. QGie JK&ngaroo did not asxive as early as had been expected. The delay is accounted for by the fiust of her not leaving Port Adelaide until 10 a.m. on Thursday. She brought an immensely large cargo; The Royal Shepherd is announced to leave Port Adelaide for Wallaroo and Port Augusta to-day, at 4 p.m.. The schooner Adelaide encountered a heavy squall off Bailey Head. The wind chopping to the. westward blew furiously ior-a time; it heeled the schooner over on her broadside, sent the after shroud adrift by snapping one of the chain-plates, and earned away the main-foresheet. The nume tous passengers on deck, who were scarcely able to move by reason of sickness, were in imminent danger of being washed overboard, until Captain Arnold and crew bundled them below.

PRESIDENT LINCOLN AND THE BABY. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 9 September 1865
PRESIDENT LINCOLN AND THE BABY. Manj have thought of Mr Lincoln as a jester: but noae who knew him well could form such an estimate from the humorous sayings which flew off as the mere sparks from the anvil on which the heavy work which the world now sees was wrought. . Mr Carpenter, who resided in the White House for some mouths, tells of his " pacing up and down a narrow passage, his hands behind him, his head bent forward upon his breast, heavy black rings under' his eyes, showing sleepless nights—altogether such a picture of weighty cares and responsibilities as I never had seen." In a time of great despondency, in 1862, a congressman called upon him, sod Mr Lincoln began in a humorous vein. " Mr President," said the congressman, rising, I did not come here this morning to hear stories; it is too serious a time." Mr Lincoln said, gravely, "A , sit down ! I respect you as a sincere, earnest man You cannot be more anxious than I am constantly ; and I say to you now that were it no...
