VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 13 September 1865
VICTORIA. The BallaaratStar says;—u A lesson, which deserves to be recorded for the benefit of that coarse, irreverent class of persons who disobey summonses as a matter of course; and treat law with stolid indifference or contempt; is being at present finely exemplified in-the case of a man named ltobert Winter, who was arrested on 30th May last, by Constable Boyan, on a charge of having wilfully damaged a door in the Ancient Briton Hotel, Happy Valley. At the time of the arrest^ Winter, was brought before Mr Lewers, J.P., Of Linton, who admitted him to bail on a. personal recognisance of £20, to appear, before the Linton bench on the next court 1 day. The prisoner, it appears, gave himself no further trouble in the matter, A warrant was then issued for his apprehension, and Constable Bpyan again arrested him, and brought'him before the bench. He was then fined, and his recognisance was forwarded to the authorities in Melbourne, to be dealt with: N as is usual under such circumstan...
MOONTA. September 8th. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 13 September 1865
MOONTA. September 8th. The site for the Telegraph Station and Post office is I believe now settled, and in accor dance with the wishes of fa great majority of the residents in the township. An allotment of land opposite the present Post-officie is the spot chosen. There is a building on the ground that has been used by the Baptists as a place of worship, which will be used as a temporary office until the new buildings are erected. The Moonta Institute is now finished,^and the reading room will be open to subscribers on the evening that the English Mail reaches Moonta. The building is of stone, 20 feet by 30. The total cost of land and bnilding is £230, One hundred pounds of this has to be met by a loan, which it is to be hoped will not be of long standing- The general complaint against the situation of the building previously and to "the Institute is now remedied, and it now remains to be seen how much this bad to do with its want of success. The present building is situated near th...
OPENING OF THE SCOTCH CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 13 September 1865
OPBNlirchGF THE SGOTGH- CHUECH. The opening of the Presbyteri^:Chureh, which took place on Sunday,- 10th. September, -was by lar the greatest • event of any of a similar nature that have yet' taken place' oh the Peninsula.. It ^ "was one in which a lively interest was taken by the whole community, and this circumstance is liighly gratifying, whether regarded as ail expres fiion of goodfeeling towardsoiir Presbyterian Mends •or' as; indicative' of'the' det&y of' sectarian pre judice. The other places of public worship, were nearly all of them close&L, thattheir congrega tions might attend the opening services of the new church. The interest of the d&y'k proceed ingswas greatly enhanbed by the presence of the Bek Joha Gardner, who had kindly consented to officiate on the occasion, and whose popularity as « preacher it is needless to remark, is as wide spread «s it is deserved. The event attracted a large number of visitors from J£adina and Moontaj and even a fe...

Wallaroo Times. WALLAROO: WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 13. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 13 September 1865
WALLAROO: WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 13. Ie five years ago anyone had ventured to predict that a ploughing match would take place this day on Green's Plains, lie would have been considered as a vision ary, or perhaps one demented. Not only, would the nature of the country and its long distance from a market have been considered an argument against the probability of such a thing taking place, but the limited wants «f the few shep herds, then the sole inhabitants of the district, would have rendered it still further improbable that any attempt would be made at farming in the locality. Who could have foreseen the wonderful changes that have taken place in so short a time ;±he extraordinary mineral wealth that has been laid Open, and the conse quent gathering of a large population, and developement of trade and com merce, such as has never before been equalled in the colony. • Everything here is progressive, and so good a. start having been given to the place, it is impossible to say where it wi...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 16 September 1865
VICTORIA. ] The Melbourne correspondent of the Bendigo ^Advertiser gives the following:—A serious accident happened to the coach which carries theGipps Land mail on its outward journey last evening, on the Dandenong-road, at a spot near the newly erected residence of Mr Ambrose Kyte, M.L.A. The coach, which left Melbourne at five o'clock with only the driver and the mailman, took up a female passenger at the Star Inn, on the Dandenong road, soon after which the axletree broke, and the three occupants of the vehicle were thrown out. The horses took fright;' and dragged the broken coach at a furious pace along the road, and were at length brought to a stand by running the vehicle against a telegraph post. In the meantime the female passenger was picked up in a senseless condi - tion, and taken into Quail Cottage, the resi dence of Mr Davis; Mr Barry Sullivan, who was on a visit to Mr Kyte, in the immediate neighborhood, and who had witnessed the accident, lent a helping hand in carryi...
AN IMPERIAL DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 16 September 1865
AN IMPERIAL DREAM. The wor|d has, we fear just missed an opportunity of witnessing a great political experiment. It is stated, on good authority, thrt at a recent Cabinet Council the Emperor of the French laid before his startled Ministers his plan for the government of Algeria. It was one of those marvellous dreams which Napoleon alone among rulers seems in this day able conceive, which when they fail make Bonapartists, whose idea of a grand stroke is an operation in Rentes, denounce their master as a visionary; and, when they succeed, compel France to allow that if her Government is despotic, it is depotism tempered by genius a>s well as epigrams. Napoleon proposed," it is stated, to cut the Algerian knot by restoring the dependency to/a native government, subject to only a general control from western civilisation. The entire possession, except perhaps the port of Algiers, should, be advised, be divided into provinces, each with an Arab pacha, and all subordinate to an Arab vi...
A GOOD NATURED MAGISTRATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 16 September 1865
A GOOD NATURED MAGISTRATE. A poor man made his appearance at the bar of the police court, Gorbals, charged with being drunk and disorderly in the street, wKen, after a patient hearing, the presiding Bailie, who seems to have possessed more of the milk of human kindness than of that firm ness and dignity which are by some deemed essential for the magisterial office, ordered him to pay a fine of 15s. " Fifteen shillings!" vociferated the man, with more points of admiration in his tone than we can spare room for. u Fifteen shillings, Bailie!! Ye're surely no in earnest. Bless ye, when will I ; win 15s to gi'e ? " " Well," said the Bailie, yielding, u I'll make it half-a-guniee, and not a farthiug less!" " Half-a-guinea, Bailie! if ye fine me in half-a-guinea, what's to come o1 my puir wife'and weans for a month to come ? we may just starve, there's nae ither way o't," said the offender, in most lugubrious tone— we must starve or beg." u Well," says the relenting Bailie. "I'll make it 7...
THE GUELPHS AND GHIBELLINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 16 September 1865
THE GUELPHS AND GHIBELLINES. It is curiously clear, from the accounts of Malespini and Villani, that, as usual in such matters, the Florentines had but a very hazy notion as to the meaning and origin of two names for the sake of which they were pre pared to cut each other's throats. Any name or watchword is good enough for a party rallying cry when once passions have been connected with it; but the Florentines understood that Ghibelline meant attach ment to the empire in opposition to the Church, and Guelph attachment to the Church in opposition to the empire. But it would be a mistake tending much to prevent a right understanding of the future course of Florentine politics to suppose that enthusiasm in favour of either of these two institutions, or hatred against either of them, had much to do with the party strife that divided Florence. The antagonism between the civil and the ecclesiastical power is in truth as old as ecclesiastical encroachment, and must be as perennial as the e...

CAPTURE OF TWO BUSHRANGERS BY THE POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 16 September 1865
CAPTURE OF TWO BUSHRANGERS BY THE POLICE. We lately gave an account of the proceed ings of a band of four bushrangers, who had stuck-up the Ginerioi station on the Gwydir or Big River, where they obtained some fire arms, when they immediately afterwards left, passing over to the opposite side of the river, and helped themselves to ahorse, bridle, and saddle each at the Singapore station, belong-' ing to Messrs- Glass and Corrigan. Imme-; diately on thia infoimation. reaching the Bingera police, Senior-constable Doyle, Constable Bobson, Mr Walter Redhead, a volunteer, vand a black tracker, started in pursuit. They proceeded to Messrs. Glass andCorrigan's station, called Bangheet, where they found Mr Corrigan and four men determined to give the scoundrels a warm reception should they pay that station a visit. Mr Corrigan told the troopers that he heard the-clank-of horses' feet about two or three hours previously, going in the direction of Pallal, but fearing that they might miss the ...
