OCEAN TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent and Illawarra and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 18 August 1863

OcEAN TELEORPII.-JIr. Cyrus W.Field has issued a tabular exhibit of the results of ocean telegraph-making, from which we compile the following facts:-The first telegraphic cable laid across a sea or strait was that which connectsGreat Britainancd France by way of Calais.and Dover (27 miles across), where the greatest depth is but 28. fathoms or 168 feet. That was laid only twelve years ago; and already forty-nine submarine telegraphs are re corded- only three of them .in this hemisphers)-which have a total length of 5,684 miles, or, if we count the different strands or insulated wires, of 9,557 miles; so that the wires already laid.down in submarine cables would considerably more than span the full diameter of the globe. The longest cable is that which connects the isle of Malta with Alexandria in Egypt by a circuitous course, whlich mnakes the distance 1,535 miles, with a maximunm depth of 2,520 feet, or nearly half a mile; but fair deeper water is tra versed by tlhat only 520 mile...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent and Illawarra and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 18 August 1863

A coon stand-up fight, a well-contested trial of strength and skill, whether mental or physical, is an exhibition which seldom fails to attract and to interest as many as have the opportunity of witnessing it. This fooling is peculiar to no race or climate ; but is plrobably as largely de veloped in the various elements which form British society, as anywhere else. Independently of the importance, what ever itnmight be, of the stake at issue, the people of East Maitland had, oil Monday the 1st instant, a rare opportu nity of gratifying the propensity which delights in witnessing a displaty of intel lectual gladiatorship. On that day took pltce the nomination of the rival candi dates for the representation of the borough we have mentioned; and the competitors were, each in Iris way, tmen of mark and likelihood. Mr. J. B. DARtrLyt, and Mr. TtIENtY PARKES have both figured conspicuously for many years le fore the colocnial public as leading politi cians, though of different schools. Mr...

FRIGHTFUL SCENE AT THE ROYAL PAVILION, BRIGHTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent and Illawarra and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 18 August 1863

FItIGIITFUL SCENE AT THiE RO1YAL PAVILION, BRIGIITON. TilE Royal Pavilion at Brighton, was on Wednesday night a scone of conster nation rarely equalled in intensity. At the commencement of the present reign the building passed into the hands of the Brighton Corporation, and its rooms are now let off for meetings, entertainments, &e. On Wednesday evening the Coillns' troupe of Christy's Minstrels had en gaged the Music-room for the perform ance. A crowded audience assembled. As soon as the doors were opened an escape of gas was preceptible. The large chandelier of the room was lit up, and none of the others appeared to be turned on; therefore the increase of the pe culiar smell common to gas - escapes created a good deal of anxiety amongst the assemblage. However, people came trooping in every minute and only a few cautious ones retired. As the time for the commencement of the performance eight o'clock- approached, the atmos pliere of the room began to get quite op pressive, ...

COOLIE LABOR. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent and Illawarra and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 18 August 1863

COOLIE LABOR. TO TLE EDITOR OF T?HI, COURIER. SIm,-From having noted the effect of Coolie labor in other countries, and having resided for some years in India, I believe I am not altogether ill-qualified to offer a few observations on the intro duction of Coolies into Queensland, and shall feel obliged by your permitting this letter to appear in your columns. It seems the natural course of events that all measures tending to an advanced prosperity should, even while in embryo, meet with the severest execration. A majority will always be found to shake the head and predict portentous evils from the birth of any monster innovation "If the national debt should increase," said the most acute statesman of his time, in the infancy of that incubus, "the country will be bankrupt!" And, yet since that sagacious dictum, it has trebled itself very many times without any such alarming crisis. Vaccination, railways, free trade, all have had to con tend with the same tempest of abuse and dismal f...

AUSTRALIAN HORSES AND AUSTRALIAN RIDERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent and Illawarra and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 18 August 1863

AUSTRALIAN lORSES AND AUS TRALIAN nIDEI'S.' TuiIs defective breaking in Australia, which aggravates and hardens the natural vice of our horses, arises in part from the high price of labor, and the ignorance of many of our breakers: for all who can ride here consider themselves competent to break, and do break when opportunity offers. In other and very frequent cases, especially in the old bush districts of New South Wales, this faulty breaking comes from another cause; the pleasure experienced, by the rider in mastering a savage horse in his angry mood. His ob ject is not to quiet, pacify, and break his horses, but to make him do his worst, and sit -him. Perhaps there are. no people under the sun who can sit a vicious horse like the Australian-born Englishmen of the bush district of New South Wales. After several generations climate food, and habit, have as usual, left their impress on the figure. The bush-born enative (as they are called) of New South Wales are, as a rule, tall sli...

THE EXODUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent and Illawarra and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 18 August 1863

Tlr .Exoinus.-Frilday afternoon another batch of emigrants left Sligo for Liverpool, en route to the United States. About 120 in all took their departurc; and the same remark made on this as on former occasions -they were of the small fiarming classes, and seemed to be devoting the last resources in procuring i passage to a distant land. Since the conmmencement of the emigration season between two and three thousand persons have left this and the adjoining counties of the United States for our British Northl American possessions. It is a feature worthy of remark that all the eom fortable passengers-if we may employ a popular expression--select the British colo nies iii preference to the territories of Usncle Sam.-Stigo Chronicle.

THE AMERICAN WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent and Illawarra and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 18 August 1863

THE AMERICAN WARl. We quote the following passages from recent letters of Dr. 'Mackay, the Spe cial correspondent of the Timess - WOMEN AND WAR. There is an old Scottish rhyme which says " Wh on grey boards w:cp nail ions crow, itol pride or t o natlon liot low." These lines are but too applicable to the present condition of this country. If " gray beards" do not yet weep for the miseries and degradation of the land it is not tor want of cause; and if the growing of hens be a metaphorical expression for the unseemly interference of women witli the political affairs and partisan passions of men, the crovwing has begun, and be tokens a wide-spread demoralisation of the people. A woman named Dickinson a spinster of twenty-five, from the city of Philadelphia, fresh, fair, and blooming, with an amazing volubility and power of vituperation, somewhat impaired by the nasal twang and the Yankee mispronun ciation, has been engaged by the " Con tractor's League" to enlighten the Nor thern publ...

JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent and Illawarra and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 18 August 1863

JAPAN. The position in which France and England respectively stand towards Madagascar and Japan are entitled to attention not only on account of such reasons as make every political event of our time more or less in teresting, but also as illustrating the many chapters in the history of the world which record the conquest of countrieslcss power fill or less advanced in civilisation by othler nations whose actions in the course of time, when causes and motives have become comparatively obscure, are commonly at trihuted to unprincipled ambition or acqui sitiveness. In ipth these instances here mentioned, the' invaders, as they will be termed, if hostilities should be resorted to, first settled in the TKingdoms of Japan and Madagascar in consequence of a peaceful understanding, and for peaceful and com mercial objects. In both cases, as in many others during the past, the inhabitants soon becoming. aware of the superior pover, and jealous of the superior intelligence of their visitors,...

THE REVOLUTION IN MADAGASCAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent and Illawarra and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 18 August 1863

TIHE REVOLUTION IN MADAGASCAR. (FRo3I THE pORaT LOUIS OVERLAND GAZETTE, JuNE G. The event of the month, which has caused much sensation here, ancd will be received with surprise and regret in Euiope, is the revolution in Madagascar. On the 12th 1?ay, King ladamnt was deliberately strangled by the H-[ovas, and at the same time, all his native ministers shared a simi lar fate. Immediately afterwards, the Queen JRaboudou, wife of Radanm, was placed on the throne. We must endeavor to seekl out from the information that has reached us, the origin of this revolution and regicide. That the King could have bhiee approeached'and deliberately strangled the guards and the troops must have been gained over by tihe conspirators: that the act when committed caused no excitement among the people leads one to suppose that they wero prepared for the event, and that their sympathy was for the revolutionary e srty. King Radama was in advance of his age. He was liberal in his ideas of go vermcnit, husm...
