Wallaroo Times. WALLAROO, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 29 March 1865
WALLAROO, WED2JESD AY, MARCH 29 We liave a great dislike to be teazedinto anything, and we have quite* an equal dislike to teaze .anyone else into doing that which lie is unwilling to do. 3?or this reason we do not altogether like to write repeatedly on the same subject, or to harp continuallyon one string. Besides, it looks as if we had liothing else to wi^ite about, whereas we have so many subjects that we do not know wMdi ,to tackle" first. "We have had occasion ilaitely more than once to refer to a subject which we Intended ^6 take leave - of for a time, in our allusion last week to the want of a lightship at Tipara Beef. This subject has, however, again been unpleasantly forced upon our notice by the recent accident to the steamer Kangaroo. In another column will be found a full account of the disaster ; and we have no hesitation in saying that it would not have occurred had there been a lightship at the ILeef The accident happened owing to the lights of the township of Moonta ...

STRANDING OF THE STEAMER KANGAROO. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 29 March 1865
STRANDING GF THE STEAMER KANGAROO. On Monday morning, the chief mate of the Kangaroo, with four men, arrived at the jetty in a boat, bringing the intelligence that the steamer Kangaroo had on the previous night grounded on the Walrus rock near the Tipara Reef. The news, as may be imagined, caused much anxiety throughout the district. Mr Nation, the Harbour-Master, immediately started for the locality of the accident, and men were dispatched iu the ship's boat for the purpose of rendering assistance. Captain Orchard had instructed the mate to procure a lighter to lighten the steamer of her cargo, but no such vessel being procurable, the schooner Walrus cast off the jetty and stood off in the direction of the Walrus rock. Tfaesteamer, where she lay, could be plainly seen from the higher parts of the township. In the afternoon, about 4 o'clock, it was observed that she bad shifted her position, and soon it became apparent to the satisfaction of those who were watching her that she was ...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 29 March 1865
NEW SOUTH WALES. The SncKiNG-up of the Gukdakoo Mm. by HaCi. amd his Gang.—The S. M. Herald says—The following letter has been politely handed to us for publication :—-** Gundaroo, 5th March, 1865. My dear Bob—I have been stuck-up at last, and lost all my arms without a shot. Of course I shall be laughed at, after lugging them all the way to Sydney and back,,to go and lose ;themin^that way; but that does not trouble me half so much as my own disgust at being caught napping, and so simply. Of course, I never expected to meet the bushrangers in this neighbourhood, so near home. I had placed my rifle among the luggage, and the girls were on it inside the mail. My gun, loaded with cartridge and capped, was by the side of the driver, covered with mf coat. When we came to the foot of the gap leading off Lake George I said I would walk up, levying my gun on the box seat, not thinkingit worth while to carryitup that hill. I haWMearly reached the top, and was about 10 yards in front of the m...

RESOURCES OF THE SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 1 April 1865
RESOURCES OF THE SOUTH.' The Richmond Whig-oi December the 20th had a most minute calculation of the resources of the South in white men, and showed to its own satisfaction on paper that the South has still 692,795 fighting white men, and that its army in the field should consist of 461,864 white men. at least. It is pleasant to know on; 'paper, to a man exactly what number the President ought to have, and the Richmond editor must have felt great satisfaction in numbering up the last four of that large number. Unfortunately, however, his inference is bad, for after getting at the niim\x=req-\ ber of males of the right age in his own way, hie deducts only 10 per cent, for " disability and other causes," which must be vastly under the mark. The most gigantic effort ever made in Europe was made by France under the Convention, when she put about one twenty-fifth of her population under arms. This calculation makes the number available about one-sixth of the Confederate people. But we ar...

Irishman who can read and write, and who has no property at stake,, is an4 organiser' among the Fenians, and lodges are Springing up with incredible rapidity. In their published documents the Fenians state their object to be simply to restore Ireland * to an independent position^ such as it was before the union with England • and Sa>tland^ but in their daily, conversation they talk of the entire independence of Ireland, and this object they seek to ^accomplish through their secret organisation, either by involving GreatBritan and the Northen States in war, or by lighting the 1 fires of revolt in. Ireland itself. An active correspondence is kept up with the discontented in Ireland; the poorest labourer here subscribes his dollar* towards the general fund, and arms are b...

Active measures were taken to discover the leak, which was eventually found to be abaft the mainmast in the garboard streak' on the starboard side, and consisted of two holes, one of which was large enough for a man's fist to go through. A piece of rock was stuck fast in one . of the holes, «nd in the other a blubber fish and a quantify of sea weed. On removing these the water rushed into the hold with great force and volume, and it was quite apparent that had not the holes been so fortunately plugged, the steamer must have gone to the bottom.
