THE DANISH SOLDIER'S SONG. DEN TAPPRE LANDSOLDAT. TRANSLATED FROM THE DANISH BY JORGEN ERICKSEN, ESQ. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 August 1864

THE BANISH SOLDIER'3 SONG. (DEN TAPPRB IiANDSOLDAT.) TRANSLATED FB.OSI THE DANI3II BY Johgen EnicksEN, Esq. Tho Danish soldier's song, under all his vicissitudes, be it on tbe battle-field or by his own fireside, you will hear it everywhere, from, rich or poor, old and young, it is, I may say, almost as well known as the Lord's prayer. The strain of this immortalised song has got a1 strange influence on tho Dime's mind— it. inspires him with pure and holy, as well as patriotic, feeling.. It calls him to bis duty, cheers him. on Ms long inarches, .sounds through' the camp, and at the hour of merry-making ; it was tho list song his sweet heart tried to sing to him, although her eyes were bedewed with tears at his . departure ; or, perhaps, as he gave tho parting Iriss to his wife and baby, its young lips prattled, some lines of this song, taught by its mother, therefore to him it Js like heavenly music. But fearful it sounds to the enemy, when with, fixed bayonet the1 small Danish for...

THE NEW POSTAL REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 August 1864

THE NEW POSTAL REGULATIONS. ?? The Postal Act passed last session was, it has hitherto been imagined, intended to facilitate the transmission of letters, and at the same time to reduce some of the charges which had been found, by .experience, to be excessive, .and the tendency of which was to confine within narrow limits the business transacted through some of the branches of the department. Amongst other reforms was the reduction in the book postage, and also in the letter postage within a certain distance of the principal postal towns. By the regulations, however, which have recently ;' been framed and published by the department, and which came into operation on the 1st inst., all the benefits conferred by the act have been more than counterbalanced, and it would have been far more convenient had the old act and the old regula tions been allowed to remain in force. Under the old regulations letters sent to any post office within the colony wei'e forwarded to the persons to whom t...

COLONIAL INSURANCE COMPANIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 August 1864

COLONIAL INSURANCE COMPANIES. . . The recent1 developments of the policy of several of the Colonial 'Insurance Companies suggest the question ' as to ^whether it is reaJly worth while to insure at nil. So long as the premiums are being paid of ; course everything gees along swimmingly, bat as soon as a risk falls in unpleasant accusations of fraud ore made for the purpose of evading pay ment of the liability incurred, or some fortunate technicality is bad resource to for the same purpose. Such a course is calculated to destroy all confidence in insurance, and must prove Mghly injurious to the several institutions of which it is a characteristic. The speedy payment of the insurance due upon any risk is frequently of the highest importance to the credit of the insurer. He may have relied: upon the return from Ms venture to relieve him front pressing liabilities; and, to guard against the possibility of failure, be has secured himself by an insurance policy. By ; some mischance bis pol...

HORSES FOR THE INDIAN MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 August 1864

HORSES' FOR THE INDIAN MARKET. A correspondent of the Ballaarat Star, ; writing from Calcutta on the 7th June last, gives the fol lowing interesting information: — '? The horses Bhippedfroni the Port of Melbourne, for the Indian market, on board the Blanche Moore, arrived in safety and were highly approved of. This is a gra tifying -fuct to every well-wisher of the progress of the colony, as the Indian market .will always be -the best in which' to dispose of our surplus stook of good riding horses, fit for military and civilian purposes. In return we ore likely to have an addition to our breeding stock in the shape of Arab stallions, if not Arab mores, but, judging from the tenor of the correspondence, it seems doubtful if the genuine Arab can be easily purchased in the Calcutta market, though what is called the Gulf Arab is to be ob tained without difficulty, and at no great price, as the breed -is not thought much of. The health officer is likely to be required to look' sharply af...

The view of Mount Arapiles, which we have intro duced into tho ivcios this month, is a cut from an oil painting by Chevalier, who has established. his reputa tion as a foremost colonial artist, pre-eminently skilled in transferring to canvas the similitude of Australian scenery, faithfully representing the peculiar linos of the foliage of our trees, the varied, brilliant and molt ing tints of our skies, the dense shadows of our forests and mountain ravines, and the strange and im pressive aspects of i our rocky ranges. This artist's picture of Mount Arapiles is generally ranked by those familiar with the products of the bush, as one of his most successful works. ,11 was pointed, We believe, for Mr Alexander Wilson, a gentleman belonging to one of the families who aspire to be our ' shepherd longs,' and whose flocks, with those of his numerous brothers^ range.overan immense tract of territory in the dis...

THE YIELD OF OUR GOLD FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 August 1864

THE YIELD OP OUR GOLD FIELDS. Cfhom the age.) At the close of the six months ending the 30th. of June, 1863, and again at the commencement of the present year, we published a set of carefully pre pared statistics showing the amount of. gold which had been produced from our mines during the half year and year ending the 30th of June and the 31st of December respectively. We now give similar tables for the first six months of ' the present year, and the results will be found to be of an encouraging oharactor ; for, although there has been a slight de crease in the gross yield of our eold-fiolds, there has been an increase in the average earnings of the miners engaged. From the tables which, we give below, it will be seen that we commenced the pre sent year -with a balance of 74,100 ounces of gold in the hands of the banks, and of 8372 ounces de posited in the Treasury, malting a total of 82,472 ounces. On the 30th of June, there remained in the hands of the banks 82,529 ounces, and de...

BAILEY V. THE ' SYDNEY MORNING HERALD.' A trial which certainly should rank amongst Australian causes celcbres has .recently taken place in Sydney. It was an action brought by one Bailey against the proprietors of tho Sydney Morning Herald for libel,- damages being laid at £5000. It appears that this Bailey was at one time a clergyman of the Church of England, but that, in order to possess himself of a considerable amount of properly, ho connived at tho execution of and issued certain forged documents. For this he was tried, convicted and sentenced to transportation for life.

MINERS PROSPECTING Drawn By N. CHEVALIES, SEE PAGE 10. MINERS PROSPECTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 August 1864

MI NEKS PROSPECTING [drawn by h. qskvulox, E8Q.-- 43B PAQE 10. MINERS PROSPECTING. 'Miners Prospecting' is the title of our sketch, but it may be necessary to explain to, many of our homo renders the technical significance of this phrase. To ' prospect' is to search for new gold-fields, or, on a more limited scale, to try new gullies and Hats, or other likely places in the vicinity of an old and well -drought gold-field, in hope of unearthing other auri ferous deposits. It is by enterpi-ises of this nnture thnt the bounds of our gold-fields have been so widely extended; and as thero is every renson to believe that tho precious metal, in one form or other, and under some one or other of the well known conditions of its ' native stato, exists throughout all the mountain ranges of Victoria, if not over the entire territory, numberless ' prospecting' parties have been equipped and sent out to search for fresh gold-fields and deposits new.

CHINESE SLUICING, NEAR BEECHWOBTH [FROM A SKETCH BY N. CHIVALIRR, RSQ].—[?] CHINESE SLUICING NEAR BEECHWORTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 August 1864

CHINESE SLUICING, NEAlt BEECHWORTH [prom a.skktoh bt n. OHBYAMaa, bs-j].— saa paghi 10. CHINESE SLUICING NEAR BEECHWORTH. Out of some 80,000 men engaged in mining on our gold-fields, rather more than one-fourth are Chinese. These people, it is well known, have, from the first discovery of gold, emigrated from the flowery land in vast numbers, with the hope of procuring, by the labor of a few months or years, a sufficiency of the glitter ing dust to enable them to spend!the rest of their lives in comfort and repose,' by the hearths of then- families, and near the tombs of their ancestors. Hence they have always preferred those forms and methods of mining where the smallest means aro requisite at the outset, and' the chances of speedy success are the greatest. That is, instead of entering into quartz mining — which requires a large outlay in machi nery, has to bo ' prosecuted with patience for long periods; and, after all, is very precarious and uncertain in its results — they give th...

DISCOVERY OF AN ANTIQUE STONE IMPLEMENT AT BALLAARAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 August 1864

DISCOVERY OF AN ANTIQUE STONE IMPLEMENT AT BALLAARAT. We find, in Dickers's Mining Record for July, an interesting description of a stone imple ment, ,or weapon, discovered at Ballaarat. Tho description reads as follows : — ' It is a stone, bear ing evidence of having boen artificially fashioned to its present shape ; it was found in tho subsoil, at a depth of twenty-two inches from the surface, while trenching for a garden, lying upon its side and im bedded in gravelly clay, in the residence area of Mr Samnel Hutson, Ballaarat north, ou the 16th of March, 1861. It is stated, and we consider the in formation to be reliable, that the ground had not been previously disturbed. It appears to be made of bluestone — that is to say, basalt — and the whole surface, with the exception of a very small portion, Bhows it to have been laboriously wrought to its present form Its length is eight inches, its largest diameter a * little under four inches ; its weight about five pounds avoirdupois.

CHINESE OATHS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 August 1864

CHINESE OATHS. Considerable difficulty seems to have been experienced at the last Aimidale criminal ses sions, in consequence ' of a conflict of opinion as to the manner in which oaths should be ad ministered so as to be binding upon the con sciences of Celestials. It appears that tho three modes recognised in the courts of the colony were — cutting off a cock's head, blowing out a light, and breaking a plate. Ah Song, a Chinese witness,' saying ho would swear by the second of. these methods, Mr. Windeyer objected, assuring Ms Honor that he had been informed by Christian Chinese merchants that the only certain way of getting at. the truth from Chinese was by having a cock's head cutoff, the other modes being subterfuges. He, therefore, formally objected to Ah Song being sworn by blowing out a light, and requested his Honor to take a note of the objection. Mr Ateak, the Chinese merchant, of Sydney, whs was iu court, on being asked, said it was immaterial which' was used, and other Ch...
