THE CONFEDERATE STEAMER ALABAMA. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 23 January 1863
THE -CONFEDERATE STEiMEE tt will be In the recollection of onr Tea8ers that a short time ago tbe English Govern, ment-entered into engagements with several English and Scotch Arms for swift heavily armed vessels for the British Navy. Amongst others oae was bailt at Birkenhead, but from some defects at present unknown to the public the Birkenhead one, known as No, 200, was refused tf the 'Government; her armament, speed, or steampowers was at fault, any rate she was deemed ineligible for the at British* NaW. Soon after this the (Confede rate Commissioners in Liverpool, glad of the opportunity, made overtures and finally soo ceeded in purchasing No. 290 for their navy. This fact was known- to the Federal govern ment, and one of4heir armed steamers was for a long time waiting on No. 296 then changed iuto die Confederate steamer Alabama to see that she got no arms on board, and in the event of her leaving ventral waters jt» seice and capture bjefore any arms of moment could be pnt on. b...
HIGHEST POINT OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 23 January 1863
HIGHEST POINT OF AUSTfiAUA. ^ The following, interesting to parties in this neighbourhood, we extract from the S. M. Herald*.— In this morning's herald . yon report, under the bead of Victoria, that Professor Neumiyer has recently ' ascertained that the elevatUn ofMoukl Kosciusco, the tupposed highest poiht'on the continent, is 7285 feet, instead of 6570, at teas assumed before.' The latter is the' measurement of Count Strcelecki. But in the years 1851 and 1852, I determined the elevation to be 7807 feet from the mean of a numerons series of ebser vattens by barometer and theodolite. ? The difference between nty measurement * anil that «f Professor Keumayer being only ^ 22 feet, and the difference of each from the mean of the two being eleven .feet, it is pro bable there may fee even less discrepancy between oar results and the actual height than is represented 'even by the asjigoed numbers. . . . I published my determination at page 130, 'The Searches in the Southern Gold Field*,' ...

Court of Petty Sessions, Cooma. MONDAY, JANUARY 19. (Before R. Dawson and J. W. C. Merryweather, Esq's, J.P.'s) ESCAPED PRISONER &nbsp; A party giving the name of John Weekes was brought up in custody on suspicion of being one of the escaped prisoners from Berrima gaol. &nbsp; He corresponds exactly with a description of &nbsp; one of the prisoners at large published in the Gazette. Remanded awaiting further information. ILLEGALLY DETAINING PROPERTY &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Pattrick Ware, of Collinton, appeared to answer the complaint of John Dougall, of the same place, by whom he was charged with illegally detaining &nbsp; certain goods his property, to wit, an old battered sledge hammer. The case was a very paltry one, and seems to &nbsp; have originated in a mutual ill-feeling between the parties, two publicans at Collinton. The particulars are simply these:— Some two years ago or so Mr. Dougall purchased a quantity of b...

I remember Mr. Editor -when I was a ?mall boy in the sonth of Ireland, roaming ever the hills above the bertntiful Lake of the far-famed Uillarney, and looking down season after season upon the delighful panorama that lay spread cut beneath. Distance may have ' lent enchantment to the view,'' but it was not my fate to bare glided over those limpid waters, or wakened the echo's of ' Kanturk,' or the ' Eagles Nest ;' though many and many a time I promised myself that ' not flnother season should pass over without the pleasure falling to my share, of polling ? tront out of those dear waters, and roasting him upon a skewer of nrbntnt wood upon the emerald shore of the lake.' It is sad that we cannot get on without eating and drinking, and to it is thai the most delightful poetic ideas are broken in upon. .The dreams of a ?fairy—like existence dispelled by tbe sleru realities of life— ' ? * A change came o'er the spirit of m...
