CONVICTION OF AN INNOCENT, MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866
CONVICTION OF AN INNOCENT, MAN. TUE convict Dunn has addressed the following document to the Executive, relative to a man named M'Cormack,* convicted of robbing a Chinaman near Murrumburrah, and sentenced to 10 years : " As I know that Mr. M'Cormack is totally innocent of the crime for which he is suffering, I believe it my duty, before I leave this world, to give the following testimony for you to make Avhat use of it you may deem best conducive to his interests. , Perhaps this statement would be more conclusive were .Pto give the names of the parties who really committed the robbery, and the attached crimes j but, after considerable deliberation, I have refrained from doing this. I may be wrong in this conclusion. The law of man may justly demand that I should give lip their names, but if the robbers haye violated the laws of man, they have also disregarded the laws of God, and to Him I leave their fate, relying upon my own assertion ' made at a moment when I know that in a few sh...

QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866
QUEENSLAND. A man named James Gleeson, who was convicted in July last ' for horse-stealing, and sentenced to two years' imprisonment, I with hard labour, in Brisbane gaol, managed to make his escape ' whilst employed with the hard-labour gang at a cutting near the I gaol, opposite the lock-up. He asked leave of the sentry to go to the rear, and contrived to get clear away unobserved, and has since been seen on the Logan River armed. He stated his inten- tion to join M'Pherson. The Port Denison Times reports that two unknown bushmen have been murdered by the blacks, within ten miles of Inker- man Station, in the Kennedy District. The steamer James Paterson, whilst going alongside Rock- hampton to the wharf, with a strong tide, broke one of her plates on the port side, and immediately commenced to leak greatly. The engineers succeeded in clearing her of water. The barque Loda, 637 tons, Captain Warde, from Melbourne to Shanghai, laden with coal, was dismasted in a hurricane, in latitu...
TASMANIAN SCENERY—CORA LYNN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866
TASMANIAN SCENERY-CORA LYNN. So far as the beauty and grandeur of her natural scenery are con- cerned, Tasmania certainly de- serves the name that has been sometimes given her, of 'The gem of the South.' On the highlands, and growing upon the summits and , precipitous sides of the grand moun- . tain rangés which abound in the colony, trees of enormous size and gigantic height rear themselves ; , thé foliage, too, of the shrubs and plants growing in the beautiful valleys rich and luxuriant; here ' and there gigantic boulders of rock, cropping out from the steep moun- . tain side. These varied and oppo- site features of the picturesque and . beautiful combine to form pictures of such scenery as is rarely beheld. The illustration which we present of what is termed Rose's Bridge, which crosses the River Esk, some nine .miles from Launceston, will convey some idea, not only of the structure ; itself, but also of the beauty of the . scenery of the spot. In fitting, t taste, a name at once...

I MRS. KINDER Was brought .before the court and discharged by proclama-: tion, the crown law officers considering that the evidence waa . insufficient to establish her complicity in the murder. The Judge :'i advised her at once to leave the colony. She. fainted as 8he left the court, and returned to the gaol, but has since acted upon his Honor's advice.
TO LIZA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866
'., ? TO LIZA. I LOVE to look in thy downcast eyes, And wonder what secret hidden lies Beneatl^.their fringe-like curtain ; For surö*amci there doth abide Something-but what, 'twould ill-betide To guess-yet am I certain. For, ever andanon,-as .musing,. . ^, You sit-a quiet corner choosing ; *"~v'" There mounts, all trembling, A smiling blush-a blushing smile, That trembles on thy face awhile, Then leaves it calm-dissembling. Your eyes and heart sweet commune hold, As if the ono the other told Stories for tears or laughter. I Else, why is't every now and then You softly smile a moment, then Look sad directly after ? Is it the memory of happier years Bedews thy heart with silent tears, : . . Some by-gone grief revealing ; ; : Or, haply, hope of brighter morrow, Chasing away the marks of sorrow, With smiles thy face o'er-stealing ? i Or, do'st thou, with a fairy's might, Summon around thee spirits bright The shapes of joys departed : Of old home-friends left far behind, Tho' lost to si...

TO VICTORIA; : For thee, Eight Iloyal Lady, the Woollahra Hermit Hf ts A harp which he lias found amongst these Australasian drifts. A simple oasis would fain contrast poetic flow'rs " With literary desert in this sandy world of ours. The cell that Destiny has made his refuge from nnich woe Is far from being furnish'd as a classic studio Its only books are lectures, as they issue from the press Of nature's own simplicity-all else is wilderness !.. The Hermit once was sent to'school'with' other men, I ween,' Then he could play the courtier, and the air "GOD save-the Queen !" Far deeper, holier, feeling nov) suggests a loyal strain, Such as earth's monarclis seldom hear-nor wilt thou liearin váin ! Events have rear'd a cenotaph within his studious mind, .. And graven thereon one "word imbued with deepest thought refin'd- . That word is elsewhere, everywhere, embalm'd in deathless fame Oh, Queen, how can the Hermit speak thy husband's precious name ?. ,' ', , His rich ascent to GOD, an...
TREE PORTS, AT THE SOLOMON ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866
TB.EE PORTS, AT THE SOLOMON ISLANDS. WE are indebted to Mr. Folgambe, of H.M.S. Curaçoa, for the accompanying sketch of a curious description of native fortifica- tion found on Isabel Island, Solomon Group. These forts are quite common throughout the group, and are used as a protec- tion from the raids of the cannibal tribes inhabiting the adjacent islands. Each village contains one or two built in the forks of trees of the banana species, usually about fifty feet from the ground. The only entrance is through a door in the bottom, from which hangs a rope ladder made from cocoanut fibre, which is at once light and flexible. When an alarm is given, the inhabitants flock into their little forts, and by pulling up their ladder after them, render an assault on their position almost ! impossible.
THE BERTRAND AND KINDER TRIAL. BERTRAND'S TRIAL AND CONVICTION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866
THE BERTRAND AND KINDER TRIAL. -(THE SKETCHES BY OUR ARTIST.) BERTRAND'S TRIAL AND CONVICTION. IN the numerous scenes where the tempter has triumphed, none has exhibited more extraordinary features than the Kinder mur- der, for which Henry Louis Bertrand now lies under sentence of death. Very questionable is it if, in the whole calendar of crime, a parallel case is to be found, and if such does exist, it will be found in the judicial archives of France. The tragedy is so .thoroughly French in all its surroundings, that one would almost instinctively trace it as the result of the deleterious literature of 'Sue or George Sand. An account of the murder appeared in this iournal immediatelv after the institution of the proceedings BERTRAND DESCENDING SUBTERRANEOUS PASSAGE LEADING TO COURT HOUSE. . which, initiated Bertrand's conviction. It is, therefore, needless to go into details, further than will show the nature of evidence on which the jury returned a verdict of guilty. Bertrand, wi...
MR. JAMES COOKE, OF THE WORLD CIRCUS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866
MR. JAMES COOKE, OP THE WORLD CIRCUS. DURING the past mouth a monster hippodrome, designated the "World," arrived here, nor is the term a misnomer for the company, or rather the companies, represent almost every nationality. The proprietors are, Cooke, Zoyara, and Wilson, the former of whom is the subject of our sketch. Mr. James Cooke was born in Dublin, and at the age of 12 years commenced training for the profession in which he waa ' ' to the manor born." Possessed of a fund of native humour, he after- wards joined the celebrated Pablo Fanque, in the capacity of clown, and became a great favorite ; for, hackneyed as the busi- ness was, and is, Mr. Cooke opened up an entirely new Bphere, and most successfully demonstrated that a clown is not necessarily a fool-that genial wit is not necessarily offensive, or even coarse, and that there can be as much true philosophy and sound maxim in an ostensible jest as in the weightier deliverances of'some of our would be sages. Mr; Cooke left...
DUNN, THE BUSHRANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866
DUNN, THE BUSHRANGER. THIS unfortunate young man, the last of the Gilbert and Hall gang, and the only one who has escaped a violent death, now lies in Darlinghurst Gaol,. awaiting the execution of his sentence on Monday next. His trial took place at the Central Criminal Court, on the 20th ult., before his Honor the Chief Justice. The prisoner was arraigned, and pleaded not guilty to a charge of wilfully murdering Constable Nelson, at Collector, on the 26th of January, 1865. The witnesses called for the Crown were Thomas Kimberley, Frederick and Henry Nelson (sons of de- ceased), James Bull, William Davoren, Janies M'Kay, M'Hale (who apprehended prisoner), and Dr. Handford (who made a post mortem examination on the body). By their evidence it was shown that, on the before-mentioned date, Hall, Gilbert, and Dunn stuck-up Kimberley's public-house at Collector, Dunn keeping guard outside while his companions plundered the house. Nelson, hearing of the raid, armed him- self and went towa...
THE SEPARATION OF RIVERINA. SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES TO GOVERNOR SIR JOHN YOUNG, BART. (No. 87.) Downing-street, 21 December. 1865. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866
THE SEPARATION OF RIVERINA. SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES TO GOVERNOR SIR JOHN YOUNG, BART. (Nb. S7.) Downiiig-street, 21 December. 1S65. Sir,-I liave to acknowledge the receipt of your despatches, ' No. 63 of the 21st July,"and No. SS of the 21st September,, enclosing, for presentation to Her Majesty, Petitions in favour of ' the separation of the Riverine District from the Colony of New South Wales. The former of these despatches also encloses, . amongst other documents, a copy of a minute by your Cabinet : on the prayer of your Petitioners. I have to inform you, in reply, that I have laid these Petitions before the Queen, but that I have been unable to advise Her ' Majesty that any steps ought to be taken for giving effect to .' the wishes of the Petitioners. I regret the inconvenience to which the inhabitants of the Riveriue District are at present subjected by their distance from the seat of Government ; but these inconveniences are in a great measure removable, and I oug...
THE BRIDGE STREET EXPLOSION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866
THE BRIDGE ¡STREET EXPLOSION. AT half-past six o'clock on Sunday, the 4th instant, while the majority of the citizens of Sydney were preparing for evening service, they were startled from their propriety by a sharp concussion, followed by a report, as if several parks of artillery were discharged simultaneously. Those who happened to be in tlie vicinity of the accident, might have seen an immense mass of debris driven a couple of hundred feet in the air, the heavier portion falling in a radius of about two hundred yards, the lighter portion going off with a. cloud of smoke that arose from the ruins, and falling along Darling Harbour, and some even in Pyrmont. The scene, viewed from Bridge-street, was one of the most utter destruction. The two large and sub- stantially built stores, occupied by Molison and Black and Mr. Thompson, had literally not one stone standing upon another ; the whole side of the new building adjoining on, the east was blown p.way, and presented a sectional vie...
