THE HARBOUR WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 28 July 1864
TIlE HARBOURi' WORiKS. Wa". are glad to hear that'there is now a chance of seeing the works'at thie harbour once more resumed at the old pace. By the time that our subscribers in the town re coive.their copies of. our present issue, the proceedings will have been re-commenced by the former contractor, IMr.Johiu Hughes, who has entered into a contract with the Works KDepartment for the continuation (we believe not exactly for the completion) of the excavations, &e. Past experience has, no doubt, enabled. Mr. Hughes to judge satisfiactorily what price will really remunerate him for the amount of labour required under the circumstances, and we hope ihe will be able to go on in such.a manner as may give satisfilotion to those who employ him, as well as to those lie employs, and to find at the end of the chapter that he has done something worth while for himself. Perhaps our expectations for the future of this undertaking ought to be modified by our knowledge of what has taken il...

ENGLISH AND FOREIGN. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 28 July 1864
ENGLISH' AND FORIEIGN. (From tIhe Home News.) A SoiNE of a very unusual character oc curred in one of the committee-roonms of the House of Commons on April 28. A committee, under the chairmanship of MIr. Gaskill, was sitting in No. 8 room for the purpose of considering the Bel fast Improvement Bill, a Mr. Rae appear ing on behalf of the ratepayers. During the cross-examination of a 'witness by Mr. Rae, the committee complained of tho.manncr in which he conducted him self, and entreated him to adopt a milder course than hoe was pursuing. Mr. Rae dissented, and continued in an offensive manner to address the comnmittes. );ýepn which the chairman said that thiy conu sidered his manner highly discourteous, and had' come to the conclusion that he should leave the room. Mr. Rae, how ever, instead of retiring, said he would remain in spite of the committee, and that he would not leave the room. Mr. Gaskill' then ordered the police-officers to. be called, and told them to remove the offende...

PLEURO-PNEUMONIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 28 July 1864
P.LEU1O-PlNOU [LONiIA. (Fro in flbourne .Argus.) lMANY of our owisers of cattle are begin ning'.to congratulate themselves on the apparent fulfilment of the prophecy that pleuro-pneumonia would become less fatal in its attacks each year, and, finally die out altogctier--the largo herds havingi suffered so little from this disease during the past six or eight months. It is still as destructivo as over ainongsvt working billocles and dairy cows; some districts, however, suffering more thailsothers. As the managers, of farmers' commons, and the owners.of the small lots of cattle de pastured thereon are thus the only per sons immediately interested in the sub ject, they will most probably be left to the care of themselves as well as they can, and the public will then iave no protec tion against, tlhe~osale of un;wholesome meat, except what -may be.offered by the different municipal councils, and they have the power to enforce a rigid inspec tion of tlle slaughter-houses 'and markets, if...

THE FLYING PEGASUS. A CASE FOR THE LAWYERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 28 July 1864
TIIE TLYING PEGASUS. A. CASE 'FOR THE LAWYERS. ONE of the most remarkable escapades on the part of a horse that has over occurred in the annals of East Lothian was exhibited by one of the genus a weok or two ago. A gentleman, having his usual'rosidence in 1England, but who has for some time been living with his relatives not far from East Linton, sent instructions to the south to forward by rail his favourite riding horse-an, animal of considerable value, and of no small racing powers, as the sequel will show. The horse was consigned to East Fortune station, but it so turned out that it went the length of Linton before being taken out of the horse-box. Hero it was liberated ; but through some cause or other-which is, we presume, to frm tlhe ground of judicial inquiry-the animal got loose on the line, just as the afterioon ex press train from the east came insight.
