THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 14 August 1869

THE MONTH. o ? ?' Tbe Assembly, alter a very protracted dis cussion, has passed the second reading of the Laud Bill. Notwithstanding the fact that the ootmtry an a whole is satisfied with the measure, the 'imposition to it in the Assembly has been factious in the extreme, and hardly intelligible, on the supposition that moinbers meet for the purpose of carrying oat the wishes of the country; Can it be that under a sys tem of triennial Parliaments, such as we have horo, the intermediate Parliamentary year is unfavorable for the despatch of business ? During the first year members are fresh from their constituents, and still under the influence of thoir pledges. Daring tho third year thoy have the fear of an elcotion before their eyes, and in prospeot of the ques tions which may then be pat to them, make a show once more of good behavior. In tho in termediato year, however, such as have got into tho Assembly merely because they have taken up tho popular cry for tho moment, are ' tempt...

IN QUEST OF KANAKAS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 14 August 1869

IN QUEST OF KANAKAS. ' ['Kanakas we believe te be a general name applied to all natives of the South Sea Islands, whatever maybe th'e particular Island they belong to. The foUowing narrative is true in regard to the faota related, and perfectly authentic, Queensland alone, bnt of all the colonies con stituting Australia.] The Polynesian slave trade is now occupy ing a good deal of the publio attention, not only in Australia, but in the mother country. Many strange rumors are afloat as to the manner in whioh this traffio in human beings is oonduoted ; and same of the tales that are told are of a startling choraoter. There is great difficulty in ascertaining the faots, he cause the white men who are engaged in the trade are prudentially reticent about their doings among the islands, and the natives, being nnable to speak English, bave their tongues tied and their lips hermetically sealed. The following narrative may be relied upon as perfeotly authentic the faots having been communica...

EXECUTION OF RITSON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 14 August 1869

EXECUTION OF RITSON. James Ritson, the murderer of the Rev. Mr Hill, at Pentridge, expiated his crime on the scaffold on Tuesday morning, 3rd August, and died with a full acknowledgment of his crime and the justice of his sentence. The   following particulars of the life and doings of the criminal may perhaps be interesting, more especially as since his conviction he has announced the causes that led him on to both his crimes. James Ritson was born in Eng- land in 1844, and was consequently 25 years of age at the time of his death, but never knew his parents, both of whom died in his infancy. He was brought up by an uncle who, in 1860, when he was 16 years of age, paid £20 for his passage out to Melbourne by the Empress of the Seas. After knocking about various parts of the colony, he finally settled down to the life of a costermonger, buying vegetables in the Eastern Market and retailing them through the city. In June, 1868, he was arrested on a charge of shooting Mr K...

THE LATE SIR RICHARD DRY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 September 1869

THE LATE SIR RICHARD DRV. The Premier of Tasmania, the announce ment of whoae death appeared in our last issue, was the «on of a gentleman who had been exiled for oooneotion with the politioal troubles of Ireland daring the lait oentury. The Irish exile's ion, inheriting the wealth and property which his father had amassed in bnsinei8, got a fair start in lite,' and before his death, at the comparatively early age of fifty-four,' was chief of the Government, the most eminent member of the Legislature, and the moat honored citizen of the colony. His first entrance into active politioal life, as a member of the Legislature, took place on his nomination to a seat in the old Counoil by Sir John Eardloy Wilmot, then Lieutenant-Governor, in February, 1844. He was one of the now historio ' Patriotic Six ' who resigned in 1846, in con sequence of an accusation of disloyalty preferred against them by the Governor for re sisting his arbitrary procedure in borrowing money without the authority...

Although not mnch gold has as yet rewarded the diggers, ? still there seems to be every likelihood of a highly remunerative field, more particularly in the direction of crushing; for the chief pecu liarity of the place is its gold-bearing cement, ? - a composition of bard Vooky iron-stono and. quartz, which is fonnd at varying depths from the surface', and which is in itself from a iaw inohes to a con pie of feet in ? thiokness.

"FIRST CHURCH," DUNEDIN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 September 1869

'FIRST OHUBOH,' DUNEDIN. Amongst our engrav ings this month is an illuitration of a Presby terian Ohnroh, now in process of erection at Ponedin, the capital of Otago. It is called the new ' First Ohnroh,' and there is reason, for the peculiar designation. It occupies a. prominent site in tho centre of the city, within a large re serve set aside for chnroh purposes at the time the province of Otago was tint colonised. The foundation stone was laid by Dr. Burns, the father of the Presbyterian Chnroh of Otago, and. who accompanied the first colonists to their new home in thia distant isle. The venerable pio neer still survives, al though for the last eighteen months incapa citated for publio labor. The responsibilities . of ibe pastorate have for some time past mainly devolved upon bis col league and successor, the Bev. George Sutherland, who occupied the masse or parsonage seen on the right of the church. The length of the building now erecting is, over all, one hundred and seventy th...

A GROUP OF MAORIES. ? : ' As the Pakeha fly has driven out; the Maori: fly;' ' ?' i As the Pakeha grass has killed the Maori grass; ; As the Pakeha rat has slain the Maori rat ; : As the Pakeha olover has- starved the Maori fern, ' , ..',?' \ So will the Pakeha destroy the Maori.' : These mournful words of a well-known Maori, song are considered both by the Maories themselves: and by. the Pakehas, or European settlers, as prophetic, of the fate to whioh the native race of New Zealand is doomed. We trust the propheoy will fail in its fulfilment. We are well aware that in . giving expression to our hope in regard to this matter we -are if1' ?' running counter to the ideas entertained by the majority of men at the present day — a majority composed of the thinking and the unthinking alike. Even intelligent travellers, like Mr Wentworth Dilke, regard the fulfilment of the propheoy as certain.

MOUNT KOSCIUSKO, NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 September 1869

MOUNT KOSOIUSKO, NEW SOUTH WALES. Mount Kosoiusko is the Mont Blanc of the Australian Alps. This culminating point of our great mountain range reoeived its name from the first explorer of the locality, Count Strzeleoki, in consequence of the resemblance which it bore ta a tumulns ereoted at Cracow over the remains of his illustrious country man, the Polish patriot. The elevation of the mountain, according to baro metrio measurement, made by the Rev. W. B. Clarke, is considerably over seven thoutand feet from the level of the sea, and the plateau upon which the snow Hob far into the hottest months of an Australian summer it from four to five miles long. Its sides are densely covered with timber, to within seven hundred feet of the top. The distance from Sydney is three hundred miles, and from Mel bourne little more than a hundred.
