A JAPANESE JUGGLER. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 23 April 1859
A JAPANESE JUGOLER.-Here are some of his feats :-No. 1. He took an ordinary boy's ,top,:spun it in the air, caught it in his hand, and then placed it (still spinning) upon the edge of a sword, near the hilt.. Then he dropped the sword point a little, and the top moved slowly towards it. Arrived at the very end, the hilt was lowered in turn, and the top br6ught back. As usual, the sword was dan gerouslysharp. No. 2, wrs also performed with the top. He spun it'in the air, and then threw the end of the string back towards it with such accuracy that it was caught up and wound itself all ready for a second cast. By the time it had done this, it had reached his hand, and was ready' for another spin. No. 3 was still per formed with the top. There was an upright pole, upon the top of which was perched a little house, with a very large front door. The top was spun, made to climb the pole, knock open the said'front door, and disappear. As well as I remember, the band end of the string was fas...

TEN YEARS AGO. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 23 April 1859
TEN YEARS AGO. (FROM.TUE NEW YORK TIMES.) .It would be hard to imagine anything more ctitirely;different from the state of things which all the signs of the times prognosticated in 1848 than the state of things which we. now witness in Europe. Almost every expectation which :the wisest man might then have fairly enter "tained has been utterly falsified. The events of that time have led to any results but " those 'we:looked for, and the actors have any parts but those they promised us. Smith O'Brien *has been round the world; has come home somewhat sadder, and we feel sure much wiser, and now makes almost as strange a. figure 'upon the political stage as if he were a man of an other. generation. Thomas Francis Meagher, from the brilliant orator and whilome candidate for Parliament, with a gorgeous future before him, has dwindled in a lecturer on Costa Rica, with appropriate illustrations, and editor of a local Irish newspaper. John Mitchel, when last seen, was the frantic defender of...

THE LAST DEVIL'S WALK. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 23 April 1859
THE i.ASTi DEVI ,'S 'AE ?( aBY CHARLES DICKENS. -Prom his brimstope bed at break of'day A devil has walking gone, To trample and char the flow'rs to death, To infest the air ivith his pestilent breath, And to cloud the morning sun. And, pray, how was this devil dress'd? Oh, ihe was cased in an iron vest; tlis scales were close, and his rivets true, With never a chink for a spear to get through. -And over the hill, and over the dale, He walked, and over the plain, And an air-gun, elegant, polish'd, and round, That would kill miles off, with never a sound, He twirl'd like a harmless cane. And over the laurels of full-blown Fame, And the tender shoots of the young Good Name, He stamp'd with his merciless hoof of shame, And he left his pirint on each. And backwards and forwards he wri~gled his tail, Through rose-trimmed garden and lly-strewvn vale, .Marking his course by a loathsome trail,' Lik a snail-track over a peach. He spied a laborer hard at work, Early at his vocation. His promi...

AMERICAN INSTITUTIONS, AS PICTURED BY AMERICANS. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 23 April 1859
AMERICAN INSTITUTIONS, AS PICTURED BY AM?ERICANS. -.We, (Herald) recently called attention to a sad picture of American political life and mauner.3, as sketched by the New York Correspondent of the London Times. It is with sincere regret that we find even graver charges alleged by the American Press. We could give almost any number of such extracts as the following :- " Freed from religious or military or aristo cratic despotism, we seem to have attained the highest political happiness. But such is not the fact. -We cannot shut our eyes to the truth, and therefore we are beginning to acknowledge that our. governing power is the mob; and that is des potism worse than that of Russia or France,. be cause. it is senseless, cruel, and bloody. Here we have, within ten miles of the City Hall, a population of over a million of people, presumed to be eminently blessed in their political sur roundings. The law guarantees to every citizen the right to choose his own rulers, as well as pro tect...
THE ALPACAS. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 23 April 1859
THE ALPACAS.-The proposition of the Govern ment for the purchase and management of the alpacas introduced by Mr. Ledger was assented to in the Legislative Assembly last evening. A lengthened discussion took place on the question, but the preponderating opinions affirmed the de sirality of retaining the flock in the oclony. The chief opposition to the proposal was based on the general principle that Governments are not justified in interfering in commercial matters, the purchase and management of the alpacas being purely a mercantile speculation; but by most of those who took this objection, the importance of opening up the new branch of commerce offered by the arrival of the alpacas was fully admitted, and a readiness was expressed to grant a compensation to Mr. Ledger for his losses in the enterprise. Objection was also taken to the appropriation by one colony of either the honor and advantage, or the loss, of propagating the animals; and it was accorlingly proposed that half the a...

Richmond election, is de' scrihed as .having been obtained inla way rathcr perilous.to the Ministry .Theb principal topic urged against him was the o.land question, ias expounded by the short sketch of their intended policy recently given by the Ministry. He further explained it, and defined the meaning as to. the squatters to be that they were to remain, undisturbed. for three years, when the leases would expire. and the system then to cease. This,. however, did not satisfy the Convention party, anrd they set uip Dr. Mackay against him as an opposition candidate. Dr. Evans, it is said, finding the opposition .look serious, wa .vered, and at an interview held between him and the leaders of the coiiveition, he abandontd his own land views, adoptod " theirs, aild 'ivein signed a written dechiration to that effect, the,: principal clause .beinghis adhesion ...

Could we wreath our columns round with gar lands of gay flowers we would do so. in very joyousness that the Parliament of New South Wales has breathed its last breath, never to be resuscitated under the electoral law of 1851 ; for most assuredly we have..little, very little, to be satisfied with, either in the statesmanship of re sponsible ministers, or in the, wisdom of represen tative legislators. The greater part of the late long and weary session has been frittered away in idle declamation, angry recriminations, petulant abuse, ungentlemanly personalities, and undigni fied wordy squabbles, mis-called debates. Trifles, light as air, have been too frequently seized upon and carped on with pertinaceous avidity, to em barrass the Government, and mischievously delay -the business of the country, in the hope that by so impeding the State miachinery, some chance might occur, some lucky slip, to upset the Ministry, not for the country's good, but solely that a par ticular set of men sho...

THE "S. M. HERALD" AND THE INCUBUS LIBEL CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 23 April 1859
THE" S. H HERALD" AND . THE INCUB US . LIBEL CASE. -. (craosc THE ARUIDALE EXPRESS.) :, The Illawarra Mercury and the Kiama Examiner complain, and we think with justice, of the course .pursuied by the S. H. Herald with 'reference to the chairges brought against Mr. Berry of Shoalhaven, by the Rev. Dr. Lang. When Mr. Berry found that the criminal prosecutions which he had been the cause of instituting against Dr. Lang and Mr. Fus- sell were disposed of, by two juries returning a ver- dict of not guilty, he published a long letter in the Herald, as an advertisement, in which lhe endta vored to justify his career since his arrival in the colony. This, to say the least of it, was an im proper proceeding, as, in.the meantime, Mr. Berry laid actions for £1,000 each against the proprietors of the llawarra Mercury and the Kiama Examiner for publishing the alleged libel 'by Dr. Lang; and these journals--in deference to an understood rule in such cases-were precluded from discussing the maitt...
