BELL BLOCK. Saturday, August 4. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 September 1860

BELL BLOCK. (From the 'Taranaki Herald's own Correspondent.) Saturday, August 4. SThis has been a day of unnusual excitement, '-he enemy having been very busy about seeking for .any white specimen of humanity that chance might throw into their way, or their own industry in that particular pursuit find ,OUt. At about half past seven o'clock a.m., an ilarm was given that William Lyall was pur sued by some of the rebel natives, who had been lying in wait at Mr. Hulke's bush. A party of Bifles from the blockhouse, over will ing rto 'trn out to have abrush with the enemy, were soon doubling down the hill, to the immi aent danger of their necks, to assist a comrade in such urgent need. It seems that Lyall, on going to Mr. Hulke's early in the morning, as sas his usual custom, to see that the premises and garden were all right, fortunately for him, he observed five natives in the bush about 100 yards off; he levelled his rifle and fired at them, an to the friendly cover of a furze hedge, r...

[FROM OUR SYDNEY CORRESPONDENT.] September 3rd, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 September 1860

[FROM OUR BTDNEY CORRIEScONDENT.1 September 3rd, 18.60. IT- is very difficult to say whether the Melbourne riots or the thampion Race has created most sensa tion this week. I think, however, that the Iaces preponderated for the time being, and by and by people will have leisure to attend to Messrs. Wilson Gray and Co. De Quincey in one of his essays makes the remark that when two or three men are conversing together the casual passer by is almost sure to hear the word "money" from one or other, so during the last ten days it would have been safe betting to give'radds, thatrin two cases out of three tile nuines of Strop, Veno, the Buck, Zoo, &c., would be mentioned in the street confabulations of ac quaintanuces. The weather, which has been threat ening with squalls of rain, fortunately turned out quite fine on the eventful day, and those who had invested in umbrellas for the occasion found the spec a batl one. The road to the races presented tie usual appearance of overcrowd...

BURNING OF THE BRITISH MERCHANT. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 September 1860

BURNING OF THE BRITISH M?IERCHANT. --+-- (tnarO THE EFatIRE.) YESTERDAY morning, shortly after 3 o'clock, Captain Duthie, of the above vessel, while asleep in the. cabin,, was alarmed by a noise, which afterwards be supposed was the bursting of an oil can; and, jumping out of bed, found the vessel full of smoke, the flames bursting up from the after hatch and the smoke nearly smothering him. He gave thie alarm to the crew, who all seemed in a sort of stupor from the smoke which was in the vessel. The vessel was, at the time the fire broke out, lying at Smith's Wharf. Mr. Crook, Harbor-master, was immediately sent for, and lost no time in removing the vessel from the Wharf by hauling her out of her anchors. The Volunteer Fire Company, No. 2, was down at the Wharf about half-past 5 o'clock, and proceeded to fix their engine in working order. A hose was conveyed on board the burning vessel, and as the water was about to play down the cabin skylights, the flames burst out, which compell...

RElMINISCENCES OF A GOLD-DIGGER. [FRo 'rHEn . T M. IHERALD.] ON the: gold-fields, some few years ago, when the claims were much smaller than those allowed now, in consequence of the richness of the ground, scarcely a day passed but there were several dis putes, and the commissioner was summoned to decide them, for at that time his decision wae final, there being no local courts or mining boards as. there is at the present time. At the appearance of the commissioner, always on horseback with one of the mounted police as orderly, it was a signal for a rush of diggers tea claim in dispute, to hear the pros and cons, and pass remarks on the decision of the commissioner. Towards noon, one. day, the cry of " Joe" passed along the lead I was working on--for at the sight.of a single policeman it was always thought there was to be a " digger hunt," that is, a search for licenses, and they scarce had entered a gully before "Joe " was cried from one end to the other, and all those who were not...

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 September 1860

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRA TS. -4+---. A DIFFICULTY WIT Hlooprs-The follow ing incident is related as having occurred at Chicago during the recent convention held there: Two fashionable young ladies from New York, with a profusion of skirts and an immensity of hoops, desired to enjoy a bird's-eye view of the city, and "wore for that' purpose conducted by some gallant gentlemen, to the roof of a high building. When they reached the ladder reaching to the scuttle-hole it became desirable'of course for the gentlemen to ascend first. This they did : and taking the hands of the youngladies as they made. their appearance through the scuttle, handed, or rather dragged them to the roof. As they rose through the small opening, their hoops .from the waist down, became more and more depressed, requiring no little effort to pull them through; but suddenly the feat was accomplished, and the hoops, bursting forth from the scuttle hole, once more expanded to their original rotundity. After enjoying the s...

CIVIC RIOT"IN GEORGE-STREET. S(FnOM TuE E.PIiR.) AnomT half-past two o'clock yesterday afternoon, a number of men, acting apparently under the authority of tho City Council, proceeded to the premises of Mr. Lasseter (known as Iredole and Company's), ironmonger, George-street, for the purpose of removing by force, a shop window, recently put into the front of the premises. Before dcscribing the disgraceful scene that took place, it may be necessary to promise it by stating, that it is provided by the Alignment Act, that no htterations shall be made in any building encroachment on a public footpath; and that if any seloh alteration be made, thle party mnakling it shall be proceeded against in the usual way. Now, at first sight, it would appear that Mr. Lnsseter's shop front does encroach on the footpath; we have made inquiries on that head and, without committing ourselves in any way to tile result of those inquiries, simply place them before the public. Mr Lasscter asserts that hIis ...

Mr. Rarey was recently operating upbn a two year-old filly, at Oxford,iwhen suddenly, from some unexplainable cause, the animal dashed a way amongst the spectators, dragging Mr Rarey with him. Three front rows of seats in the half crown places were broken, and uipwards of thirty occupants were unseated. MIost of them, we are happy to say were more frightened than hurt. One hidy was obliged to be taken hIome in a fly, and three young men were also rather injured.
