THE LAST DAYS OF THE MAORI, WILLIAM THOMPSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 February 1867

THE LAST DAYS 0F THE MAORI, WILLIAM THOMPSON. Thompson had been removed from Maunga tautari to Cambridge, for the greater convenience of medical attendance. After lying at the latter place for some time, it became quite evident that his end was coming, and Te Oriori and the whole of the Ngatihaua were anxious that he should be removed. The motive of this' anxiety was that they knew Thompson would soon die, and that there would be a great gathering of thenativts, for which Waikato is riot' so'favorable as the Thames. The wish to remove a dying man is not uncommon amongst the natives under'these circumstances, and the sick man is' expected to be quite passive. Thompson was so, submitting to whatever was wished by his relatives. A litter was made, upon which he wus home by easy stages into the Mangakawa ranges, which run 'be- tween the Waikato and the Thames. Dr. Saiii iicc companied the pai ty. At th e place in these mountain^ where Te Waharoa, Thompson's father, died; a 'halt of two ...

THE ORIENTAL BANK ROBBERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 February 1867

THE ORIENTAL BANK ROBBERY. We are glad to be able to state that the detective   police have succeeded in recovering the bills of ex- change stolen from the Oriental Bank — a statement which will be received with much satisfaction. Through the kindness of the detective police au-   thorities, we are enabled to supply the following information as to the recovery. Early on Sunday     morning probably about four o'clock, an inclosure was pushed under the door of the detective office, Little Collins-street, It was addressed thus : — Superintendent Nicholson,   Or             Resident Clerk, James D.

ALLEGED PROFLIGACY AT DONNYBROOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 February 1867

ALLEGED PROFLIGACY AT DONNYBROOK. On Thursday, 24th ult., a case of affiliation was brought before the notice of the bench. The de- fendant is a married man of about fifty years of age, an old resident, a member of the local road board, and a man of considerable influence in the locality. The bench, on that occasion, not being agreed as to a verdict, arranged to invite Mr J. T. Smith as an experienced magistrate, and, being a stranger, not likely to be influenced by party or local feeling, for the following Thursday ; fresh summonses were issued, free of cost, and the case to be reheard. Accordingly Messrs J. T. Smith (chairman), Godfrey and Wilson having taken their seats at the second   hearing, the court being densely crowded, Monteith v Whitty was called on. Mr Grylls appeared for   the girl, and Mr Frank Stephen for Whitty. A technical objection, urged by Mr Stephen, being overruled by the bench, Mary Monteith, a rather plain but pleasing looking young...

THE LATE SIGNOR CUTOLO. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 February 1867

THE LATE SIGNOR CUTOLO. It was our painful duty to record in our last issue the death of Csssare Cutolo, one of the brightest ornaments -of the musical profession . in Victoria. He was a native ef Naples, a pupil of the illustrious Mercadante, and had practised his profession in various countries before he settled in Melbourne. ' He was,' says one who knew him well, ' every where popular and everywhere successful.' His handsome face and winning manners, his graceful courtesy and transparent sincerity, his kindly heart aad high principle, procured him as many ?warm friends as his musical talents obtained for Mm earnest admirers. Who could help liking that gay good-natured Neapolitan, with his bright face and cordial smile, his buoyancy of spirits and vivacity of language ? The ability to be a charm ing companion did not exclude that of proving him self a fast friend. While he surrendered much of his time to promote the pleasure of others, he never wavered in his fidelity to the highe...

. the, Acheron: The Jtiyer Acheron, rises in the dividing range and flows north for about sixteen miles, when it falls into the Goulburn .river, near Survey Peak. The Aclieron is ubt a large river.. In the dry. sea son it is a inere , chain . .of small ponds ; but, . when full, it is a swift, Waek,..and ,.,in parts, a very deep stream.' A fish, somewhat similar in appearance to perch, and. weighing about 2 lb.or 2J lb is caught in it; Murray cod alsa and. eels are found in abund ance. The spot selected by our artist, is a perfect solitude, but exceedingly picturesque : the banks are thickly timbered and the pools, shaded by the trees, aiford a favorite shelter .for wild ducks.- The nearest settlement, Healesville, is about three miles distant. The scenery of this neighborhood has furnished a subject for Mr Von Crnerard's pencil. His picture^«)f the valley of the Aclieron may, pevhapsj be said, to loe his most beautiful produc tion. ??'?* ? -? ? - . Cahisbhook has begun to agitate fo...

A report of the Royal Commission appointed by bis Excellency to examine into and report npon the beat means ©f clearing the River Murray, was laid before the Assembly by the Chief Secretary, on Wed nesday, 6th inst. The following . is a detailed account of the commissioners : — The commis sioners recommend that a minute and compre hensive survey of the River Murray be effected with as little delay as possible, but more particularly and immediately of the portion between Wahgun yah and Echuca.

WHITE PLUMED EGRET AND RUFOUS-HEADED BRISTLE BIRD OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 March 1867

WHITE PLUMED EGRET AND RUFOUS HEADED BRISTLE BIRD OF AUSTRALIA. To Professor M' Coy we are indebted for the fol lowing information regarding these two birds :— The very beautiful white-plumed egret, vrhioh is tho first example found in the colony of the Herodias garzetta (Lin.), easily distinguished from the other white egrets of Australia by the graceful long plume from the back of the head. It is not included, in, Mr Gould's large work on Aaxstralian birds, but in his handbook, published last year, ho mentions having seen a photograph of a specimen from Brisbane, which he thought must . ; bo this Indian and European species. The specimen : we figure is in the National Museum, and was shot by one of tho museum collectors, Mr Williams, in Gipps Land, and was exhibited by Professor M'Coy , at the last meeting of the Royal Society, -as an in teresting addition to the. fauna1 of Victoria', and sottling the question of the existence of the species' - in Australia.' . ? . ?

PROSPECTS OF THE FARMING INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 March 1867

PBOSPECTS OFTHE FARMING INTEREST. [fBOM THE S. A. JLDVEBTISEIl, MAHCn 1.] The paramount importance of the agricultural interest to the people of this province was, perhaps, never more : apparent than it is at the present moment. 'We have evidently arrive'M at a new stage in the progress of its develop ment. Compared with the po pulation of the coleny, the available exports for the cur rent year are something enormous ; hut this fact, how ever gratifying, is not of itself enough to ensure success. It must, we think, he admitted that something more is re quired before the South Aus tralian farmer will find him self in such a prosperous condition as he could wish. Nor is thi-i prosperity a ques tion in which the farmer only is concerned, hut it is one in which the whole community is deeply interested. Tor the last two years the difficulties with which the agriculturists have to contend have been more than ordinarily severe. The partial failure of the crops from vnvioiiB causes, produce...

THE DOOM OF THE BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 March 1867

THEDOOli 'OF,' THE 1 BLACKS. The aboriginals continue to be a schocking nuisance atEclmcn; but,: as usual, the fault lies primarily ' with those Eiiropejuis wliq supply tliem.with' drink. Mr'M'Kenzie, of Wymea, who holds an official position under the Central Board, makes some painfully suggestive statements, on this subject, through the Riverine Herald. He says he believes there are many publicans who would not on any. account whatever supply the blacks with drink, even though they paid double charges. But, he says, in all- the townships the blacks cii'u find white men who will undertake to fetch them the grog they reqxiiro for their money. ' I have done everything in my power to prevent this state of matters from continuing,' he adds, ' but my .efforts have proved futile. I can do nothing. The blacks will get drunk, and they arc so cunning, and our laboring classes arc so willing to minister to their vices, that it in impossible to prevent them from drinking the whole of tho wages...

ALLEGED GOLD FIELD AT THE BARRIER RANGES. The Adelaide Advertiser publishes some addi tional , particulars , respecting the discovery. ' of gold in the' Barrier Ranges from Mr, Edmunds, manager of Messrs Goode and Jones's. run in, that quarter, who left the station about a mouth ago, on account of ill health'. The discovery is close to Messrs Gpode and Jones's head station,and had been kept comparatively quiet -for some time. About three , months ago one of the shepherds, an- old Bendigo quartz-reef erj with another of the hands, found a nugget in a creek near by, and on this the ex-reefer procured a hammer and tried the quartz, succeeding in knocking out several nuggets. Shortly after he left the station, intending, according to his own statement, to claim the reward of £2000 offered by the New South 'Wales Government for the discovery of a gold-field. The affair created some' excitement in the neighborhood, the more so from the likely character of the country ; but the discovery o...

CHINESE ARTIFICERS IN MELBOURNE. The engraving on pagp 12 is from a sketch made while.. the new Joss House on Emerald-hill was in course of erection. The artistic capabilities of the Chinese portion of our population, as nianifcstedin the internal arrangements and ornaments of- what may be regarded as, their, metropolitan place of worship, induced our artist to visit their workshops and see how they managed to produce such speci mens of ornamental work. There are shops ' in Little Bourke-street where Celestials may be seen engaged in carpentering and carving work just as he has sketched them. All visitors to the Octagoon room of the.
