His appeals have been in a great ?'measure addressed to the Sunday ? school children of the several Australian colonies ; and as she is now almost wholly dependent on their contri butions, each, school contributing a minimum sum of -£5,they very naturally look upon her peculiarly as thoir own ship.

CAPTURE OF THE SCHOONER MARY IRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 28 March 1867

CAPTURE OF THE SCHOONER MARY IRA. Captain Frazor, of tho Day Spring, reports a tragedy which has re cently occurred in the South Sea Islands. We , take the following parti culars of the affair from tho Sydney Morning Herald : — A small schoo- ? ner from Sydney, on a trading voyage among the islands, was at the Island Sandwich, or Fete (New Hebrides), the natives of which place concocted an atrocious scheme for the seizure of the vessel. Tho owner was anxious to get the assistance of some of the natives to work the schooner, and ten ' were engaged, who went on board, and she then pro ceeded to sea. The chief, however, had matured his plans, and on the fourth day out they rose on the original crew, supposed to consist of four white men, whom they murdered, and then brought the schooner back again t» Fete. Hera she was completely strip ped, and the property duly apportioned. Shortly after the schooner Sea Witoh came in, and 'with the assistance of some natives from a neighboring island...

THE SUSSEX STREET MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 28 March 1867

.THE SUSSEX STREET MURDER. ' The trial of William Henry Scott, for the mur der pf Annie Scott, began on the 20th ult., before Mr Justice Cheeke, and, after a long and jmtient hearing, terminated in the conviction of the accused,- on whom sentence of death was passed in impressive language by tho loamed judge. Tho unhappy culprit preserved, throughout the trial the same . unmoved demeanor wliich had characterised him from the commencement, and only betrayed a slight emotion when the jury returned into court at nine o'clock, after the absence of an hour. Upon hearing the terrible verdict he protested his entire innocence with solemn emphasis, but with a recklessness of manner that painfully impressed all present. As he was removed, from the court, the poor young woman whom he seems to have betrayed into a bigamous marriage, threw herself on the bench where she had been sitting for some hours, and wept bitterly. During the absence of the jury,_the excitement amongst the crowd in tho co...

; THE LAUNGJLSTON CHAMPION RACES. : The blue ribbon of the Launceston turf has Gallon into good, hands, and all; genuine sportsmen must,, and ?will, congratulate Mr 3?isher en having added aiiother laurel to the many he and his family (true sportsmen all, in the best sense of the /word,) have gained on the, various convincing grounds of Australia. Fishhook has won the Champion Cup, and in such a manner as shows that the blood of old Fisher iuan (that speculation worthy of a prince amongst .turfites); has not deteriorated in a foreign ?clime. To win the Launceston Champion Cup under any circumstances is no small thing, but to win it in such company as .Volunteer, Strop, Warwick, , Cotherstone, , and three others, the pick of the 'colonies, is indeed a victory to be proud of. The 'race was a magnificent one, tho horses going in a ruck for two miles,' no doubt testing each others prowess, and saving every inch for'the last grand struggle.

THE DOOM OF THE BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 28 March 1867

, . THE DOOM OF THE BLACKS. : The aboriginals continue to be a scliocldng nuisance atEchuca; but, as usual, tlio fault lies primarily with those Europeans who supply them with drink. Mr M'Kenzie, of Wyinea, who, holds au official position under the Central Board, makes some painfully suggestive statements . on tliis subject , through the liiverine Herald. He Bays 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 can find white men who will undertake to fetch them the , grog they require , for thoir 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 are so cunning, and our laboring, classes are so willing to minister to their vices, that it is impossible to prevent thorn from drinking the whole of the w...

PATENT FUSE MANUFACTORY. The banks of the Saltwater river are a favorite . position for the establishment of manufactories; and the little township of Footscray is becoming the foci of numerous industries, in the progress and success of which, every colonist must take a deep interest. There are soap and candle manufactories, potteries, tanneries, works for the manufacture of kerosene, and amongst the rest, and the most re cently established.is apatentfusemanufactory, which is situated on the north side of tile Footscray rail way station.

The consumption is confined .almost wholly to Victoria, tho exports to New Zealand and elsewhere being very trifling. The encouragement afforded to the establishment of ne-v industries by the late tariff led to the formation of. a company for the manufacture of fuse, and the erecti...
