NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1866

-NEW ZEALAND. On the 6th ultimo, ail attack was made hy the force under General Chute, at Makotuhu, upon a pah situated at a short distance from Putahi. The pah, surrounded by dense underwood, was strongly fortified with earthworks, and the whares protected with logs of wood packed in earth. Firing was opened by the rebels before reinforcements of the 18th and 50th Regiments arrived. The Forest Rangers then took up a position on the left flank within 200 yards of the pa, the native contingent were disposed with the view of cutting off the retreat of the Maori stronghold, and the troops then charged. The rebels imme- diately retreated down a gully at the rear, followed by the troops, who were joined in the pursuit by tlie Forest Rangers. A heavy firing was kept up for some twenty minutes, until the rebels had retreated. The attacking party only lost one man and six wounded. Thirteen dead rebels were found, and their loss is believed to have been very severe. The Commissariat departme...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1866

VICTORIA. If the result of the new elections was any indication of the political tendencies of the people of Victoria, the conclusion would be mostidisastrous to free trade. The opponents of the Ministry will surely be satisfied that they represented the great bulk of the people, when it is shown that out of a house of 78 members, no less than 58 are out-and-out supporters of the Government, pledged to a revision of the tariff, the reform of the Upper House, and opposed to the impudent demand of that almost irresponsible body to have a voice in taxing the people. However satisfactory the result may be to the protectionist party, or to those who have mingled in the turmoil of party strife during the recent contest, it has not been unmarked by features which we should like to have seen avoided. The most unscrupulous falsehoods, the most unblushing slanders have been industriously circulated ; even the representative of Her Majesty has been wantonly assailed. The directors of some of t...

LAUNCESTON CHAMPION RACE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1866

LAUNCESTON CHAMPION RACE MEETING. ON tlie 7th and 8th, the third Tasmanian Champion Meeting took place at Launceston, and was attended by a goodly number of sporting men from all parts of the island, as well as from the neighbouring colonies. Nearly all the entries for the Champion race were local, tlie exceptions being Rose ol Denmark irom Victoria, and Volunteer from New South Wales. Unfortunately the latter was rather shaky, and the hard nature of the ground prevented his being trained as usual. The Messrs. Field picked up the bulk of the good things provided in the shape of stakes, and, besides winning the Champion race, placed five other races to their credit. THE CHAMPION RACE.-Mr. Field's Strop, 1 ; Ben Bolt, 2 ; Rose of Denmark, 3. Cadland led off at a good pace, Ben Bolt and the Rose in attend- ance. The latter soon went to the front, and cut out the running until within half a mile of the winning post, when Strop went through the ruck and rushed to the front, the Rose goin...

WATERFALL, DANGAR'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1866

WATERFALL, DANGAR'S CREEK. This beautiful cascade, one of the finest in Australia, is situ- ated in the district of New England. It'presents a magnificient spectacle after a heavy fall of rain. The creek, emptying itself over a rocky ledge, falls unimpeded for about one hundred feet, and then, coming in contact with a shelf of rock, is dashed off in a snowy spray until it reaches the lower creek, about six hundred feet below its former level.

LITERATURE. NO. 57 CHANDOS STREET, S.W[?] [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1866

LITERATURE. j CONCLUDED. OGEE, BACON was veryfond of balls. There .was an establishment of them maintained in a basket at No. 57 for his delectation, and by de- grees a few found their way across the street. "When Miss Kerrison went out without him, Roger would come over, in a fit of* sullen indig- nation, a ball in his mouth, over which he would growl hideously, then, subsiding into good-humour, he would endeavour (need it be said ineffectually) to excite the envy of Silk- en Thomas by exhibit- ing his plaything. The big black cat would content himself with licking his paws, and wondering how any rational dog, who might have lain down before the fire and been quiet, could make such a fool of himself ; and I would look on, considerably amused by both. One very dull, dark day, when autumn was almost at its moan, and the fires were begining to burn with something like their cheery winter brightness, Roger Bacon made his appearance in my drawing room, in attendance on Martha and the co...

They met on the 24th of Febru- ary, and Hickey disposed of his rival with great ease. A few months later Hickey's friends offered to back him against the champion, if the THE CIRCULAR QUAY ON ANNIVERSARY DAY. wUV-~-^~w -, latter would ...

POLITICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866

POLITICAL. ? THE recess consequent on the Ministerial elections terminated on the 20th ultimo, and on that day the House re-assembled. When the Speaker took the Chair, there" were 17 members on the Government benches, and 16 on the Opposition side. The Ministers having been sworn iu, and the formal business trans- acted, Mr. Martin made a short statement relative to the course intended to be pursued by the Ministry, of Avhich he was the leader. He said that at the period of the year which had now arrived, and the great length of the session, it was only intended to pass the Estimates, and such other public measures as were urgently required, and leave the consideration of all other busi- ness to stand over until next session. The plan of retrenchment proposed by Mr. Cowper,- the present Government do not intend to carry out, as the suggestions on which it was made were the result of compulsion, and only intended to shift responsibility from Ministers to the heads of departments.

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866

WESTJSBN AUSTRALIA. A convict absconded from the gang at North Freemantle some time since, and, despite the strict search immediately set on foot, he managed to reach Perth and enter the prison, passing close by the sentry, and was found in the kitchen regaling himself. He was captured and sentenced to 12 months in irons. Mr. Sholl is prospecting the country round Nickol Bay, with a view to fix the seaport most favourable for the new settlement. He speaks highly of the Fortescue as a navigable stream. The Daylight, from London, at Freemantle, reports the de- struction by fire of an unknown ship, supposed American built, in latitude 4° 29' N., longitude 21° 36' W. Great interest is being taken to have the colony properly represented at the forthcoming Exhibition at Melbourne, and a large number of exhibits will be sent there.

SOUTH SEA MISSIONS. To the Editor of the " Illustrated Sydney News." SIR,-The notice in your February number of the Hight Rev. Dr. Patteson, Bishop of Melanesia, is calculated to convey a wrong impression of missionary operations in the islands of W estern Polynesia. The labours of the missionaries connected with the London Missionary Society, the Presbyterian Churches of Nova Scotia and Scotland are overlooked. The statement " that this (Bishop Patteson's) is the only mission work on the South Seas, with the exception of the work on Honolulu, which is twenty degrees north of the line, and it is the only missionary work within many degrees of latitude from the'north of Erromanga right down as far as Borneo itself. " The fact is, long before Bishop Selwyn visited Western Polynesia, missionary work wss carried on by the London Missionary Society. In the year 1S39 the society commenced operations in the New He brines ; native teachers from Rarotongo were landed on the Isle of Pines in ...

NEW ZEALAND. Thirty-one native prisoners have been brought to Auckland from Opotiki, charged as principals or as accessories in the mur- der of Fulloon and the crew of the Kate. They have been tried by court-martial and condemned ; but the Attorney-General has pronounced the proceedings illegal. There are six charged with the murder of Volkner still in custody at Opotiki.

Advices from Opotiki state that Colonel Lyon had had a most successful campaign against the rebels, having captured six large pahs and strongholds, and seventy prisoners.

THE LEICHHARDT SEARCH EXPEDITION. MR. MCINTYRE, the brave leader of the party recently titted out at Melbourne to solve the fate of Leichhardt, has proved himself the right man in the right place ; aud, undeterred by the defection of his men, he has arrived safely on the Thompson River, about 120 miles from the depot on Aramac Creek, to which place they were travelling. Kain had falleu, and the horses and camels were improving rapidly. Several men had expressed their willingness to join the expedition, and it was Mr.. McIntyre's intention shortly to recruit and continue the search. An old grave has been discovered within forty miles of the depot on Aramac Creek, surrounded with rails, Avhich appear to be at least seven or eight years old, and, as it is evidently thc work of Europeans, it is supposed to belong to some explorer. No initials or marks can be discovered in the vicinity, and owing to the long drought it had been found impossible to dig up the grave with a spade, the only ...
