NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1866
NEW ZEALAND. Of the twenty-five prisoners connected with the Whakatane affair, sixteen have been found guilty of the murders of Fulloon and Ned. The Neko7i Colonist has the following notes as to the progress of acclimatisation in that province. It says,-" The red aud fallow deer which were let loose in the Waimea lately appear to be thriving. They are increasing in number, and were seen lately with young fawns among them. The pheasant is multi- plying in several districts of the province. Some recently turned loose by his Honor the Superintendent, on the small island above Wairoa Bridge, have already had broods, and are be- ginning to spread, and will no doubt soon find their way up the Wairoa Gorge. Our imported song-birds are also multiplying, and the notes of the blackbird, the thrush (' mellow mavis' as Burns calls it), the goldfinch, chaffinch, and other linnets are not strange among the trees of some town gardens, and are sometimes to be met with in up-country districts.

ORIGINAL POETRY. TO THE MEMORY OF OUR BABY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1866
ORIGINAL POETRY. TO THE MEMORY OF OUR BABY. 'TWAS a gentle, fragile little flower, That bloom'd awhile in this earthly bow'i', As a dewdrop bright that would exhale, Too frail to weather a stormy gale : Too pure and sweet for this chilly earth, It regain'd the Heav'n that gave it birth. Then, weeping mother, grieve thou no more, Thy flower blooms on a fairer shore ! Wilt thou raise thy gentle, tearful eyes, To that bright world beyond the skies ? Dost thou see that group in spotless white And, amongst the throng, thy cherub bright ? Markest thou how bright its sweet young face ? Which cankei'ing care can never trace ; . Then, weeping mother, O cease to mourn, On seraph-wings aloft it was borne. 0, do not fret for the form of clay They bore from thy aching sight away ; The empty shell must aside be thrown, When the golden butterfly has flown. Thy babe is freed from its house bf earth : It has soared away to a holier birth. Then, mother, give to thy tried heart rest 'Tis safely housed...
NEW PUBLICATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1866
NEW PUBLICATIONS. Louis Napoleon, Destined Monarch of the World, 383 p.p., lümo., .cloth, A. J. Smith, Melbourne. The Rev. M. Baxter, in the strange, work bearing the above title, has endeavoured to prove that ¡the whole of Biblical'prophecy points to the present .Emperor of France as the future Antichrist. The arguments in - support of this theory are evidently the result of great re- search, and many of them are ingenious, but we imagine they are unlikely to make many converts. By last mail we received a spécimen copy of Cassell?s Family Bible, illustrated by Dore, the greatest Hying engraver. The letter-press, plates, and paper, are all worthy of the celebrated establishment to which the world at large is indebted for its efforts to bring the highest and best literature.within the reach of all classes of the community. .

The bridge has a clear span of 120 feet, and affords a wide passage for the heavy winter floods, which roll down with such destructive violence, and which, in one year, swept away every structure on the river with less amplitude of dimensions.! The bridge is constructed of iron, is tubular in form, and devised on what is known as the bow string " principle. It forms the highway to the northern country, and over it, in times gone by, Stuart's expe- ditions have passed, and " also Gregory's, in search i if Leichhardt. When the remains of the lamented explorers, Burke and Wills, were brought into Adelaide from Cooper's , Creek, it was by this route. '
FERN TREE GULLY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1866
FERN" TREE GULLY. ONE of the most lovely features in Australian scenery, and it may be questioned whether there is anything else to surpass it, in the world, are the Fern Tree Gullies. . Gipp's Land, which im- mediately adjoins our south-eastern boundary, is peculiarly rich in these feathery forms, amongst the most graceful of na- ture's bounty in the beauty of vegetation. But Fern Tree Gully, as traced by the faithful pencil of Mr. Chevalier, will be, we will venture to say, much more agree- able from the contempla- tion of the easyarmi chair than being really half submerged in making one's painful way .

INAUGURATION OP THE PRINCE CONSORT STATUE. MONDAY, April 23rd, 1866, will be recollected by thousands of the rising generation, long after their seniors, who took part in its ceremonies, have shuffled off this mortal coil. Everything .was worthy of the occasion. It was a day to be remembered as that on which, as with one accord, the people of New South Wales testified their loyalty to England's Queen, their recogni- tion , of the loss she and the nation had sustained, and their appreciation of the many virtues and noble qualities of Albert the Good. Our space not admitting of further preliminary remarks, we will, for the benefit of those of our readers who were not present on the occasion, give a brief outline of the proceedings. It will be recollected the statue, which was pur- chased by public subscription, is a copy of that executed by Theed, by ordei of Her Majesty, for presentation to Prince Albert's birthplace. lt arrived here some months ago, but owing to a temporary want of ...

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1866
WESTERN AUSTRALIA. A very interesting dispatch from Mr. Sholl, the Resident at Tien-Tsin Bay, appears in the Perth Gazette of March 23. The news is very favourable. They have had heavy rains ; the stock is - in splendid order, and the people in good spirits ; grass grow- ing and rivers running. I. have little doubt that that portion of Australia will become the seat of a large and thriving com- munity before long, as well for the growth of tropical produc- tions as for pastoral purposes. The overland journey of Mr. Cowle and his party from Roebuck Bay to the De Grey River proves the non-existence of any river between the latter and the Fitzroy, which empties itself into King's Sound, and is therefore the main drain of all the north-western interior. The country passed over by Cowle he describes as almost all good pastoral, and consists of plains without any rise worth calling a hill. "Water, he thinks, can be obtained anywhere 'by digging a few feet. This gives an enormous expansion...

APvKER, draw the curtains, and place some wine on the table. Walking is fatiguing work this Christmas weather, and your journey has made you pale, Mr. liavensden. The room was an old-fashioned one, furnished with attention to comfort solid, sturdy comfort, rather than to dazzle with fashion.

THE MURDER OF CONSTABLE O'GRADY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1866
THE MURDER OF CONSTABLE O'GRADY. TOWARDS dusk on the 9th ultimo four horse- men were observed coming into the town of Nerrigundah, two abreast; they were Clarke's gang of bush- rangers ; two stopped -at Wallis's public house, the first on the left as you enter the town; the other two rode on to Pollock's store. The two former commenced operations by bailing-up Mr. Wal- lis and allin his house ; while so engaged, Clarke brought in Mrs. Pollock, from whom lie took £7 in cash, and the key of the safe. While at the door talking to one of the others, observing the key in his hand, she gently withdrew it, and on his demanding it she threw it over his head into the street, and, strange to Bay, although they searched up and down with lamps they could not find it. Soon after Fletcher, another ?- of the gang, entered with Mrs. Pollock's chil- dren, servant, and two -.

TO BE TAKEN FOR, LIFE. Sophy read through the whole of the foregoing several times over, and I sat in my seat in the Library Cart (that's the name we give it) seeing her read, and I was as pleased and as proud as a Pug-Dog with, his muzzle blackleaded for an evening party, and his tail extra curled by machinery. Every item of my plan was crowned with success. Our re-united life was more than all that we had looked forward to. Content and joy went with us as the wheels of the two carts went round, and the same stopped with us when the two carts stopped. But I had left something out of my calculations. Now, what had I left out ? To help you to guess, I'll say a figure. Come. Make a guess, and guess right. Nought? No. Nine? No. "Eight? No. Seven? No. Six? No. Five? No. Four? No. Three ?, No. Two ?
