No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 24 December 1864

.ThIthoso times, so much regretted by th6 good Isaacs, wthen diueolling was generally tolerated and encouraged it was considered bh thlose whoso opinions were worthy of respect that it required a higher kind and a greater amount of courage to refuse than to accept .a challenge. Of course this opi& nion was not held by society generally, or duelling would have ceased to be commonly practised. But as the march of intellect went on mon could not shut their eyes to its truth; and now society no longer regards .as a coward the man who is brave enough to defy the opinion of those around him and td6 act in accordance at once with his own sense of right and with the laws of God and man. But although in the matter of duelling 'thero are now but few old-world opinionists of the Isaacian stamp, many men are yet far from having correct ideas with respect to moral courage generally; and he who acts impartially and temperately is; often set down as wanting in courage. This is particularly...

A COLONIZATION PROJECT. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 24 December 1864

A COLONIZATION PROJECT. (From the Emprte.) WE have frequently had occasion to advert to the probability of late discoveries and ontsiprises to the northward leading rapidly to olilargod intercourse with India, China, and the islands in the Indian Ocean: Some information which we publislhed in our issue of Thuisday last revives the subject. It appears that by the French barque Reine, which arrived in Sydney last week from Adelaide, Mnr; Joobert,' Who is well known as a merchant in this city, returned to Adelaide from a visit to the Pacific and Indian Islands. lIe had been at New Caledonia, and at Bourbon, or Reunion, as the islasd is homowhat significantly called, considering its proximity to Mauritius, or the Isle of France. The political or warlike 'signification of the name of the place, lhowever, has little to do with our present purpose. Mr. Joubert has addressed an intelligent letter to an Adelaide paper, in troducing a gentleman from Bourbon, M. Lahluplpo, who has come to Aust...

(.Arom the ns.ldshe.) Tun triumph of a successfiul election goes a very little way towards redeeming the ministor for lands from the Iumiliating position inl which hlie lhas been placed by receit disclosures. The appearance he pre sents to tile public eye at the present mo ment is not unlike thalt of a klitclhen-maid who, being suspected of robbing her mis tress, and being throatened with a polico man, immediately opens her trunks and brings to light the evidence of her guilt. As soon as it became known that hlie had obeen, for many months past, engaged in pilfering tricks at the exponso of his em ployeors, ho mndo no attempt to deny tihe crime, but simply strove, as guilty persons goenorally do, to throw the blame on some body olso. "Me, sir! no, sir! it wasn't me, sir; it was my predocssor, sir." Certainly it was inot a very dignified course for a minister of the crown to adopt; but thile sitiuation was a painful one, and ho must be excused for snatching at any pitifal ex pedient ...

To the 1ditrr of the lIeralld nd Cahroncle. Sin--I have hithorto considered that in whatover respects Goulburn might be unfortunato it was most fortunate in its newslpapers-izi having two journals unequalled out of Sydnoy, for theoir impartiality, ability, and for the oxcellenco of their general man ngement. But if they continue to allow them eolves to be imposed on in the way they were on SRaturday last, I shall roluctantly chango this opinion. I of course alludo to the vory lengthy roport of the so-called nthletic sports at thelo granmmar school. I was not previously aware that running in scks, or wvhcoling barrows blind-fold, were considered athletic oxorcises, or that the respectable and aristocratic parents of our Goulburn young gentlemen would fool particulanrly delighted at finding their hoirs dis tingulished us winners. It appears to mo that such oxhibitions hasve ben well classed by a writer in the Argus along with tihe old Englishl and atltlic sport of grinning through hor...

FRIGHTFUL RAILROAD CATASTROPHE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 24 December 1864

FRIGHTFUL RAILROAD CATASTROPHE.   (From the Pittsburgh Commercial.) During Wednesday afternoon the city was full of the most painful rumours in regard to a distressing railway accident which was said to have occurred at Thompsontown, eleven miles east of Mifflin, about four o'clock on Wednesday morning. Although the rumours were of the wildest and most painful character, the appalling nature of the disaster had not been in the least exaggerated. We are indebted to the courtesy of Mr. Oliver McClintock , the   well-known carpet dealer of Fifth-street, for the following full and graphic account of the appalling scene. Mr. McClintock was   returning from the east, and reached the point at which the accident occurred a few minutes after it took place, and remained there for some hours, and was an eye witness to the harrowing scenes which he describes. The fast express train, which left Pittsburgh on Tuesday evening, at 8.45, consisting &nbs...

CORN FLOUR A SUBSTITUTE FOR WIIEATEN FLOUR. (To the Edlitor of the eozpire.) Sm,--In the weekly issue of your paper of the 25th ultimo, I read with uncommon pleasure a long and interesting letter from Thomas S. Mort, Esq., of Bodalla, on "corn flour, a substitute for wheaten flour." It is addressed to the public of Noew South Wales, per favour of the Empire. And well it may be so addressed, as it is on a subject of the greatest public importance, and ought to awaken extensive and en grossing interest. I was so struck with the scope and whole bearing of the address, and so much did it express my own views of the matter, entertained for years past, that I in tended requesting insertion in your next weekly issue for a short communication, con current with Mr. MIort's statements, and auxiliary to Mr. Mort's design; but a more than usual pressure of duties prevented me. And to-day, the perusal of your own judi cious and well-timed article in the same strain in the Empire of the 3rd, has ...

LATER AMERICAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 28 December 1864

LATER AMERICAN NEWS. (From theo S.?. Hecrald.) TnR American news just received via Cali-; fornia does not at all confirm the statement made on the faith of one of Routoi's tolo grams that Atlanta had boon rotaken by Hood, together with 'four regiments of Federals. That telegram did not purport to give intelligenco from New York later than the 15th of October, while the intelligence now received comes down to the 21st. The report possibly had its origin in the capture of Dalton, or in the capture of Resaca, both of which, with their garrisons, were, it seems, re-captured by Hood. But Atlanta, the great prize of Sherman's eampaign, was still at the latest dates in the hands of the Federals, though it was temporarily cut off from its communications by an intercepting Confederate army. The Confederates had also failed in an attempt to take Allatoona, which was one of the strong posts along the line of route, where provisions-wore stored under the protection of a garrison. The California...
