FASHIONS FOR NOVEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 21 January 1860
FASHIONS 'FOR. NOYNa )*E. . R? oM .TA FOLtE.) * After having been for some. tine 'alternating between summer and winter garb, we think we may now expect that the cold weather has fairly set in, and, therefore, wb recommend to the notice of our readers some new material which will be in vogue. A new woollen fabric, with patterns of flowers woven in, or broches, will be very fashionable this winter. Reps antique with black or brown ground, sprigged all over with small flowers in blue, pink, green, lila'c, &c., are also in great favor. This ma terial is very thick, and is also made in stripes. One of the prettiest of these designs is narrow drab stripes, with small bouquets of lilac-colored flowers between. Another is dark green stripes, with Pom padour bouquets. There is also a now poplin called the bombix, resembling the woollen poplin, but finer, and much better made. The patterns are copies of the silks of the present season. We must also mention a woollen material used for...

HAWORTH v. GARRETT. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 21 January 1860
HAwoRTH v. GARRETT.-This was an action for libel brought by Alderman Haworth against the proprietor of the Wollongong Mercury. The damages were laid at £200. Judge Cary heard the case on last Thursday, and gave judgmenut in favor of the defendant. THE CRAWLEY'S FOREST WESLEYAN SUNDAY-SCHOOL ExAMINATLON.-'rhe examination of the above school took place on Wednesday, the 18th instant. The day was bautiful and fine, and there was a good attendance of children and parents, the largest number that ever as stmbled in that place before.' Varions classes were exa mined by the i'ev. H. Mack, and it was quite pleasing to see the children stand and repeat passages selected for the occasion.' After the examination, tea was provided by a few of the very kind ladies who plenteously sup plied the tables with many kinds of cakes of an excellent quality. After a short recess, during which the tables were removed, they again re-assembled, and prizes were awarded to the boys and girls according to thei...
DR. LIVINGSTONE ON LIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 21 January 1860
Dn. LVINo?STONE ON LIONS.-When a lion is met in the daytime, a circumstance by no means un frequent to travellers in these parts, if preconceived notions do not lead them to expect something very "noble" or "majestic," they will see an animal something larger than the biggest dog they ever saw, and partaking of the canine' features ; the nose is not much like the usual drawings of a lion, the nose being prolonged like a dog's; not exactly just as our painters make it though they might learn better at the Zoological Gardens; their idea of majesty being usually shown by making their lions' faces like old women in nightcaps. When encountered in the daytime the lion stands a second or two gazing, then turns slowly round, and walks as slowly away for a dozen paces, looking over his shoulder; then begins to trot, and when he thinks himself out of sight, bounds off like a greyhound.
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 21 January 1860
'The citizens of East Sydney are now engaged in scrutinising the relative fitness of Messrs. FAUOETT, CAMPBELL, and STEWART, to fill the seat in the Assembly vacated by Mr. COWPER. SSofrequently have the electors of this constitu ency been engaged in this sort of work, that they ought, by this time, to have mastered it, since practice makes perfect. We are satisfied that due discrimination will be employed; and we would, therefore, predict that Mr. FAUCETT will be again rejected, and that, in all probability, Mr. STEWART will be elected. Mr. FAUCETT is, in no sense of the word, a politician, and in general it is thought that in his interfering with politics, his aim is to secure a place. Few electors, well informed as to their duty to their country, would record a vote for him. He may, however, calculate on getting the blind support of the less intelligent of his countrymen, who will, perhaps, be again led by some undue influence-to support him. A .constituency in the remote interio...
ADELAIDE. Last Saturday afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 21 January 1860
ADELAIDE. Last Saturday afternoon Flour in brisk demand at £16 10s. Few of the millers are able to supply for prompt delivery. Weather moderately warm, but dusty. Last Monday afternoon. Wheat is still scarce, and worth 7s. at the port. Great complaints are made by stockholders of the shortness of feed, in consequence of want of rain. The river Torrens has ceased to flow regularly below Hindmarsh. This has not happened before for twenty years. The weather, which has been cool for the last few days, is now again becoming oppressive. Last Tuesday afternoon. Wheat cannot be bought under 7s. Id. to 7s. 3d. per bushel. For flour, holders are asking £17, and little is offering. The Omeo sails at 10 a.m. to-morrow, for Mel bourne. * Weather oppressively hot. : Last Wednesday afternoon. No change in the grain market. The branch steamer, with the English mails, leaves Glenelg, at 9.30 a.m. to-morrow. . Weather hot and sultry.
THE TURKISH BATH. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 21 January 1860
THE . TURJlSII BATH. -----+---- (rOea TiE CORK CONSTITtTION, 29gS H SiPTEDBER.) By Rt. Wollaston, Esq., M;.D, fate Piysiciail in the Medical Staff of the Army ini the Crimea and Turkey. Among the various efforts consecrated to the noble and humane object of mitigating the sor rows of life and the evils that mortal flesh is heir to, there has been lately established a method of cure, new in this country but of ancient origin, sanctioned by the oldest and politest of nations of antiquity, the ruins of the colossal baths at Rome, those of Caracalla, of Titus, of Diocletian, fill the mind of the beholder with astonishment. Their magnitude, number, beauty of architecture and harmony of arrangement, indicate the high value set upon them by those great Romans who have filled the world with their literature and their exploits. These baths have been erected in every part of civilised Europe where that energetic people settled down and colonisrd; they have been found in Italy, Germany, France...
MUNICIPAL COUNCIL. WEDNESDAY, 18TH JANUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 21 January 1860
JIl UNICIPAL COUNCIL. WEDNESDAY, 18TH JANUARY. Present-His Worship the Mayor and a full Council. After the minutes of the last meeting had been read and confirmed, the Clerk read a letter from the Colonial. Secretary stating that the 30th clause of the Municipali ties Act referred to the expenses of the first election, and if the Returning-Officer had provided ballot boxes without being sanctioned, the Council had no claim to them. Alderman IILLER presented a petition from some of the rate-payers of Ger,'ingong, asking the Council to re pair that part of the road between Ilenry Gray's land and Mount Mitchell. Alderman MILLER nioved and Alderman BLOW se conded That the petition be received and taken into consideration for next meeting. The motion was put and carried. Alderman BLow moved and Alderman MILLER se conded That the motion passed by the Council on the 16th November, affirming the principle that Gerriogong and Jamberoo wards pay respectively 15 per cent. of their revenue towa...
JAMBEROO. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 21 January 1860
JAMBEROO. My hastily penned conjecture that Mr. J. Hanrahan would be re-elected without opposition to the post of alderman, is not, it appears, destined to be realised. Some readers will, no doubt, surmise, and with a certain amount of truth, that the wish was in this case "father to the thought." I am, I confess, not anxious for the success of any opposition that may be offered to Mr. Hanrahan's re-election, though I do not particularly wish that the important day should pass over without the gentle excitement of a civic election. Some friends of Mr. John Black have'been collecting signatures for a requisition addressed to him. Of Mr. Black I have my self scarcely any knowledge whatever. It may be true that "he would make an excellent alderman;" but we ought to be very sure of this before we consent to his substitution for the present occupant of the seat whisih he seeks, or which his friends seek for him. Of Mr. Black's opinions, qualifications, or talents, the public has hitherto...
THE DEAD WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 21 January 1860
THE DEAD WoRLD.-Scientific writers assert that the number of persons who existed since the beginning of time amounts to 36,627,843,275,075,845. These figures when divided by 3,095,000 (the number of square leagues of land on the globe)leave 11,320,689,732 square miles of land on the globe, which being divided as before give 134,622, 976 persons to each square mile. Let us now reduce miles to square rods, and the number will be 1,853,174,600,000, which being divided as before will give 1,283 inhabitants to each square rod ; which bein, reduced to feet will give about five persons to eacT square foot of terra firma, Thus it will be asee that our earth is one vast cemetery-,-1,283 liuman beings lie buried in each square rod, scarcely suflicient for ten graves. Each grave must contain 128 persons. Thus it is easily seen that the whole surface of.the globe has been dug over 128 times to.biry'its deid.
POLICE COURT. THURSDAY, 19TH JANUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 21 January 1860
POLICE COURT. TIIURSDAY, 19TII JANUARY. (Before Messrs. Perrott, Waugh, Hindmarsh, and Robb, J.P.'s.) /Mr. Waring asked the Bench if there was any day. appointed for the purpose of hearing the appeals of rate paiers in the municipality of Shellharbor. The Bench said one or two of the rate-payers had ap plied, but as it was not down on the charge sheet they supposed no notice had been given. It was the duty of the Council to move in the matter. The Bench were willing.to appoint that day fortnight to hear the appeals, upon the Council making application to that effect. James Harvison suimmoned John Sharpe for illegally impounding a bull. Mr. Waring appeared for com plainant. Mr. Sharpe made application that in conse quence of his solicitor, Mr. Owen, being detained at the District Court of Wollongong, the case should be post poned to that day fortnight. The Bench said they had not yet heard from the At torney-General, and they would, grant the request with the understanding that it sh...
DISTRICT INTELLIGENCE. GERRINGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 21 January 1860
DISTRICT. INTELLIGENCE. (FROM OUR CORREsPONDENTS.) GERRINGONG. Accidents, I am happy to say, I have seldom to re cord, but I have one this week which I report more fully than is perhaps necessary, but I want to expose the man through whose carelessness or stupidity, or both, it oc curred. On last Thursday, Mr. Nugent and Mr. W. Grey were driving a young mare in a cart to Kiama ; the beast was very quiet, and worked well and gently all along that worst of roads from the Fox Ground, Mount Mitchell, &c, out through Mr. H. Grey's, but just as they turned out on the high road they saw a man riding fast towards them from the southward; this started the mare, and she became very restive, and though the rider was near enough to see this, and also that there was a man on each side of her head, yet lie persisted in his fast pace. The nearer he came, the fiercer became the struggles of the mare ; but quite unheeding, on lie went. As he came abreast, the mare became unmanage able, and b...
GARIBALDI. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 21 January 1860
:AGARIBALDI. (- ROM THE TIMES, 14TH NOVEMBER.) The long contest for Italian independence has prbduieed n nobler'man than Joseph Garibaldi. It is strange hdw much and for how long a time tle public opinion of Europe, and more especi ally of Enigland, has been mistaken as to the character and ability of this remarkable man. There "arel no two men in Europe more entirely dissimilar than. Joseph Mazzini and Joseph Gaibaldi' --. The. simple, frank, open-hearted soldier,-ther man of mid-day-has nothing in coimmon,' ili, the gloomy, dreaming, burrowing conspirator -the man of midnight. The lan guage of Garibaldi has always been " Follow me" ?thli language of Mazzini, " Go, and I will scheme for you." In what contest in which he has borne a part has not Garibaldi stood in the foremost rank ? In what conspiracy of the many that Mazzini has set on foot has he not dexter ously slipped his neck out of the noose and left his victims in the hands of the gaoler and the executioner ? For a time, no...
