Local & General Intelligence [Newspaper Article] — The Tumut and Adelong Times — 2 November 1865
%zt& k $mml liMfpr? Singular Phenomenon. — On the 11th instant, just past midnight, and whilst the schooner Mary Ann, belonging to Mr. Henderson of this city, was lying off and on outside within a mile and a half of Nobby's, a sudden fall of hailstones took place, literally filling up the deck of the schooner to the top rail on the lee side, and laying her completely on her beam ends. Fortunately there was but little wind accompanying the hail squall, otherwise Captain Williams was of opinion the vessel would have capsized. It took all hands nearly three hours with shovels to clear the deck of what, in many cases, proved to be large irregular pieces of ice, which bad been deposited in such a ma*s in little more than fifteen minutes. At the snise time that this was occurring on board within a mile or so from land, no portion of the hailstorm in question fell on shore.— Newcastle Tele graph. Starving Sheep. — Mr. J. S.

.THE GILMORE FRACAS. ? '. (Abridged from the Goulburn herald.) i1;..-? At the (ioulburn Assizes, held last, week, before his Honor the Chief Justice, Robert Blosse Lynch, assistant gold commis sioner at Adelnng, and Charles George Norman ^.Lockhart, commissioner of crown lands for the Murrumbiilgee district, surrendered to their bail on a charge of misdemeanor. Mr. lilake, instructed by Mr. Stephen, ap peared on behalf of the defendant Lynch ; and in the absence of another barrister, Mr. Walsh, attorney, with the consent of the court, con ducted the case on the part 'of the defendant Lockhart. This was a cross case, and the crownprose cutor proposed, in compliance with instructions he had received from the attorney-general, that the cases should be tried by one and the same jury, as this course had been considered the fairest for all parties— the defendants and the Crown — inasmuch as the defendants were charged with assaulting each other on the same day, and both charges had their ...

A NEW VEGETABLE PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Tumut and Adelong Times — 2 November 1865
A NEW VEGETABLE PRODUCTION. A recent Californian paper gives currency to the following account of the discovery of a new vegetable production discovered in that State, which, if the account is true, pro mises to oe oi great value. The statement is this : — Recently some persons engaged in making turpen tine; in Plumas County, tapped some pine trees of a species new to them. The fluid flowed abundant ly, but it had a peculiar odour, and when taken to the turpentine stills in the neighbourhood nothing could be done with it. At last it fell into the hands of a man who managed to distil a liquid, which proved to be a new discovery. Instead of the disagreeable odour of turpentine, it has a fragrance like citron, and is free from all resinous matter. Ten gallons of it weighs as much as six and three-quarter gallons of pure water. It dissolves all the animal and vegetable oils and leaves no stain of its own, nor does it af fect any of the. colours used in dye ing, and thus it is an excelle...

SELECT POETRY. ODD LINES FOR 'ODD FELLOWS.' [BX ELIZA COOK.] .??:?.. They tell ub a story — perhaps you all know it— ? Of a father, three sons, and a bundle of sticks ; But it carries a moral of use to the poet, . And still of more use to Toms, Harrys, and Dicks. With your leave, I'll relate it — An old man had weathered . . . The last gale of Life, and he wished to bequeath His most precious advice to his eons, who had gathered To hear what a fathei'd last whisper would breathe. ' See that fagot of sticks,' said the eire, 'in. yon corner, With a withe twined about ifc to. koep it together ; Now, each of you take it, and see who can break it, J£ But mind that not one of you take off the tether.' The boys, in Tfielr turn, tried; their hardest and strangest, .. But no, not a twig of the fagot would crack ; And at last,when the stoutest had bent it the longest, They gave up the trial, and carried it back. 'Stay, stay,' cried the father, 'now take off the binding, And see if your might ...

THE SCENE OF LINCOLN'S ASSASSINATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Tumut and Adelong Times — 2 November 1865
THE SCENE OF LINCOLN'S ASSASSI NATION. Ford's Theatre inside presents a scene of the greatest confusion. All the properties, furniture, ?ward- robe, &c, are piled upon the stage preparatory to packing and remov ing, iub jjuruiiEisers propose to pay 10,000 dollars to Mr. Eord this week (June 28), when the property will be conveyed to them. Many strangers in the city are continu ally calling and asking admission to the building, but thus far none have been admitted save a few members of the Press. Notwith standing the close surveillance of the guards, who have had the theatre in charge, the building has been roughly used. Curiosity seekers have completely whittled away the bench upon which ' Pea nut John' sat while holding Booth's horse, and about a yard square has been cut away from the green baize carpet, surrounding the spot where Booth's feet struck when he jumped upon the stage, after shooting the President. One of these curious visitors entered the saloon adjoin ing the ...

. %n$k\ zui fWlgtu (From the Some News.) A medical gentleman, writing in a contemporary, recounts the particulars of a case cf ' second sight ' which he says he was connected with about thirty years ago : — I was then a medical assistant, living at Bewdlev. in Worcestershire ; and was one night called up to see a boy, between 10 and 12 years of age, who had awoke and frightened the family so much that they sent for medical advice. Hence my going there. I found the boy sitting up in bed, making some guttural sounds, quite unintelligible, aad pointing to the foot of the bed ; but, from the symptoms, the impression upon my mind was he had awoke from a kind of dream, which had occasioned him great fright. I sent a placebo, and the next morning, upon visiting him, found him quite con scious, and able to narrate the cause of his fright. It appears he had an elder brother out in India, who enlisted in the army enmo few years before ; and the boy, being disturbed, awoke and found hia brothe...

GLYCERINE. npHE following are some of the usea to which GHy JL cerine haB been applied: — In Ear-ache and Deafness, one or two drops of this fluid introduced into the oar gives great relief. It is of great benefit - in Tooth-ache, and, on account of ita antiseptic power, it corrects the bad odour of the breath. In burns and scalds it is very efficacious — soothing the pain and protecting the injured parts from contact with the air. Combined with Orange-flower Water it is the best remedy known for Dandriff and Chapped Hands or Face. In warm climates this preparation, as a wash for the hands or face, is most valuable, for, having the property of remaining moist at a high temperature, it protects the skin from the action of the sun, wliiM at the same time it is an effectual safeguard against the bites of mosquitoeB. As an outward application in all kinds of skin diseases the good effects of Glycerine are well marked : in some it acts like a charm, and in those more intract able it is a...

The day was most propitious, and the number of brethren who assembled to take part in the procession was highly creditable. At half-past twelve, they formed themselves in marching order, headed by an impromptu brass band, composed of local talent, under the directorship of Mr. Simpson. When on the point of starting, Mr. Andrew Smith succeeded in taking a large photograph ot the procession, which marched through the town and hack again to the Lo*lge in the fol lowing order : — Wardens ? w Band.

GLEANINGS. Routine Dishes at Table. — It is an error to stick to the ordinary routine which makes to day's dinner party the echo of yesterday's, and the second-sighted foretaste of to morrow's Is there no fish in the sea but turbot ? None, besides salmon, in the stream ? Are cer tain roasts and boils alone present able, all the rest being unwhole some if not poisonous? It is to avoid this monstrous sameness that men betake them selves, in despair, to sundry dining-places in town, and relish repasts at German ' tables d'hote.'' They would accept a Chinese 'chef de cuisine,' and taste hashed dog — though the cookery might be execrable and the hash worse — for the sake of enjoy ing a little gastronomic variety. A German traveller, well received in (London, went a round of dinner ^parties. For about the twentieth time he sat down to fowls at top and ham at bottom. ' Mein Gott! ' he exclaimed, ' cock and bacon again! Dere is noting to be had but cock and bacon.' And he forthwith entered ...
