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

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. The pique which is said to have existed between the Governor and Captain Newland, Comptroller-General, has resulted in the recall of the latter, who goes Home at "the Imperial expense, and that portion of his department connected with the convict service wül be removed to Perth on the 1st May. The ceremony of laying the foundation stone of the Perth Masonic Hall took place on the 12th inst. The stone was laid with all the honours by Chief Justice Burt, who delivered an eloquent address suitable to the occasion. The Postmaster-General, Mr. A. Helmich, has proceeded to Madras on leave of absence. The new settlements on the north-west coast are progressing favourably. The Governor has written to the Secretary of State, suggesting that, for a longer period than was at first in- tended, the settlers be permitted to purchase land at 7s. 6d. per acre.

WRECK OF THE VICTOR, AT NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 April 1866

WRECK OF THE VICTOR, AT NEWCASTLE. Ox tue luth tilt, the brig Victor, ol ana tor Melbourne irom Newcastle, with coals, was becalmed off the latter port, and slowly drifted ashore until the captain, not liking the vessel's position, attempted, unsuccessfully, to wear her, and immediately afterwards she bumped heavily. The steam tug Prince Alfred went to her assistance and got her in tow, but unfortunately the line broke, and a heavy sea catching her, she went bodily on the rocks, about three quarters of a mile from Nobbys, close to the. Harbour master's residence, and at once commenced to breakup. The City of Newcastle (s.), Captain SummerbeU, steamed as close as she could with safety, and then lowered the life boat, but the sea was running too high to approach the wreck, on the forecastle of which, were assembled the crew ; and after several ineffectual efforts the boat returned. A mes- senger was then despatched for the port lifeboat, which started in tow of the Rapid. Had the unfo...

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 April 1866

TASMANIA. A proclamation appears in the Tasmanian Gazette prohibiting the importation of all cattle in Tasmania, subject, nevertheless, to the iollowing conditions :-Cattle may be imported if landed at either Hobart Town, Launceston, or Port Arthur, on con- dition of undergoing an inspection by an officer appointed by the Governor prior to their being landed. Any cattle that on inspection may appear to be infected with the disease pleuro pneumbnia to be immediately killed and disposed of as the 1 inspecting officer may direct. Imported cattle once placed in the slaughter-yards are not to be removed therefrom until slaughtered. Cattle imported from the United Kingdom may, on undergoing a satisfactory inspection, by such officer as afore-1 said, be landed at any of the above places. None of the above conditions are, however, in any way to affect the landing of cattle in the islands situate in Bass's Straits. Arrangements have been made for the reception of the salmon ova now hourly ex...

II.—TASMANIAN TIGER (Thylacinus cynocephalus). [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 April 1866

II. -TASMANIAN TIGER ( Thylacin us cynoce i phalw). At some remote period, when Tasmania was still part of the Australian mainland, this blood- thirsty animal existed not many hundred miles from Sydney, as has been proved by a number of teéfch and bones found in the caves of Wel- lington Valley, which may be seen in the Aus- tralian Museum. Its habitat, as far as we know,.is now, how- ever, restricted to the island of Tasmania, where it dwells among the rocks and impenetrable glens of the highest mountains, frequently attacldng and carrying terror among the flocks of the settlers. The number of young produced is abolit four at a time. TASMANIAN TIGER. -[SEE I'AGE 14.]

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

POLITICAL. THE Parliament of 1865-66 lias, after a lengthened session, been prorogued, and we are pleased to learn that the House will reassemble in June or July, so as to prorogue again before the heat of summer renders the atmosphere of the Assembly al- most unbearable. Last session, which commenced on the 25th of October, and terminated on the 7th inst., is chiefly noticeable for the fall of the Cowper Government and the inauguration of the second Martin administration, in whose keeping our political des- tiny still remains. The principal event of the month has been the strenuous effort made by the State-aid party to resume the pay- ment of subsidies from the public purse to ministers of religion. The principal debate on this vexed question took place on the 16th and 17th. It commenced early on the evening of the 16th, and would, probably, have terminated after a few hours in the passing of the proposed resolution, had it not been for the strenuous efforts made by those opposed t...

THE KINDER TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 April 1866

THE KINDER TRAGEDY. THIS most remarkable affair bas undergone another astounding phase, and Bertrand, whose execution was to have taken place, is now, comparatively speaking, a free man, and with every prospect of his entirely escaping the penalty of his crime. In the interval since our last issue Mr. Salomons moved for and obtained, in the Supreme Court, a rule nisi, calling upon the Crown to show cause why a new trial should not be granted herein, on the following grounds :-1st, that some of the evidence had been improperly read at the second trial. 2nd, that the Crown Prosecutor improperly exer ciaed a right of reply, when such had not been expected. 3rd, that the . points previously argued had not been argued before all the judges ; and1 4th, that the first jury was improperly discharged. The last three points', were decided by three to one against the prisoner, Mr. Hargrave being in all the dissenting Judge. The fourth point was governed by a j udgme'nt just delivered in. Engla...

VIEW OF PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 April 1866

VIEW OF PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA. THE city of Perth, the capital of Western Australia, is situated on the Swan River, about twelve miles above Freemantle. Proceeding from the latter place, a winding estuary, from two furlongs to a mile, in breadth, runs for several miles through pleasing or romantic scenery, varying the views by the circuitous course round long spits of sand rocks of grotesque shapes, con* gtitute in many places the prominent features of the banks some deokedäik the prof use'^mbf^iiafecy of nature, others lurking amid shrubs and trees, and many standing out bare and pre- cipitous. This variegated estuary opens into Melville Water, a beautiful expanse, six miles long and four wide, which has a fine back ground, composed of the Darling Bange. The mouth of the River Canning is seen nearly four miles, from the estuary on the right ; a narrow strait is then threaded, and at the foot of a hill, richly clothed with wood, is seen the town of Perth, built on one of its decli...

THE LATE EXPLOSION IN BRIDGE STREET, SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 April 1866

THE LATE EXPLOSION IN BRIDGE STREET, SYDNEY. FKOM the report of the board of inquiry appointed to investígate the cir- cumstances of the late explosion in Bridge-street, laid before the Assembly and printed, we extract the following, which is really the gist of the whole document. The commissioners consider it proved beyond doubt that the substance that exploded was a sample of nitroglycerine of about 100 lbs. weight, that the aggregate bulk of the gases generated instantaneously by the explosion of the quantity contained in the sample would probably be about 6000 cubic feet, so that the mechahical. force of the explosion would be very great, and give a summary of the evidence, tracing the I bursting of the sample of blasting oil, and describing the effects of the ex- plosion. In seeking for the cause of the explosion, they have reviewed and dis- missed, as unsupported or disproved by the evidence, the four following suppositions/ viz. : (1) that some burglar may have entered the ce...

LIVERPOOL PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 April 1866

"..' .'".'.. LIVERPOOL PLAINS, IN" THE NORTH OF NEW SOUTH WALES. . LIVERPOOL PLAINS. | THE extensive squatting district known by this name lies in the northern portion of New South Wales, and occupies an immense tract of its finest pastoral land, lying between the coast range and the Great Dividing Range. It consists bf fine open plains^ numerously intersected by belts of forest, and plentifully supplied with water; in fact, nearly all the streams to the northward of Sydney are fed from this watershed-including the Peel, Namoi, Darling, and Gwydir. The best portions of the country were originally selected under grants from the Crown by the Australian Agricul . tural Company and the Peel River Company, amounting in the aggregate to over a million acres. The district possesses much fine scenery, particularly in the mountain ranges. It is at present little known, save to those interested in pastoral pursuits ; but if, at some future time, railway or other means of access thereto is aff...

LITERATURE. THE POND HOUSE. CONCLUDED. OW I wanted that time, I said to myself, that I might think of some nlan for Elliott's aid. I then went to visit him in prison. We exchanged our thoughts, and cheered each other with hope ; and then I went away, bearing his messages and his protestations to the Pond House. Plorenee Cazneau was a woman, every inch of her. There was no screaming, no fainting, no nonsense of any kind. Sheheard all my recital with a flashing eye and a bloodless lip, and then like Demosthenes she declared in favour of action. Ay! but how? She would see this mun Connington. To what purpose I asked. She did not know. At all events she would see him and con- clude from tho interview what could be done. Woman-like, to form her opinion from physiognomy, perhaps ? No ! To gratify curiosity ? No ! Whatever was the motive I was not to know it. I had my task assigned. I must see this man Wood, the officer who had tracked out the affair so far, and arrested Elliott, and by so...
