THE INTERCOLONIAL TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent and Illawarra and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 22 September 1863
Tue LNTEECOLONjALl TTELEGRAPH.-The delay of one day, which has occurred in forwarding the Bombay's news, illustrates the inconvenience of there being only one telegraphic route between Adelaide and Sydney. There'.re two between Melbourne and Sydney,'so that if,' aiany time one line is down the other is available. A duplicate route to Adelaide has long been proposed, down the Murray River, and would have been carried out before now but for the folly of the South Australian Government in not agreeing to divide the receipts for through messages, according to mileage. From Adelaide to the boundary is only half the distance that it is from the boun dary to Sydney, and bur telegraphic do * partment naturally asks: therefore, for two thirds of the receipts, as it hans to go two thirds of the expenditlure. This arrange. ment is in force with Queensland, where the boundary-line is similarly much nearer to one capital than it is to the other. The consequence of having only one line to Ade lai...

THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent and Illawarra and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 22 September 1863
THE ADlINISTRATION OF JUSTICE. TO TIlE EDITOL.OF TIE KIA.IA INDErIENDEST. Sin,-As'the above-named subject is one of the utmost importance to the commu nity, arid at the sanle time, a very proper theme for public discussion, perhaps you will allow nme to mauke in your colunns a few remarks on a case decided in the Dis trict Court on Tuesday last. It may be great presumption to review the decisions of a learned Judge in the light of common sense; hut there are, I imagine, worse sins than that of presumption, and it is in tile interest of common sense and commnon justice that.I wish to speak. I know that many people have been in the habit of re garding his Honor Judge Chleke, as little ss than th ne s plus ultra of judicial ex cellenc;. and I acknowledge that I have beeni very much of the same mind. I was therefore much concerned at witnessing in the 'District Court the other day a decision in the case of M'llwrath v. Vance, such as seemed toset at defiance all notion of com mon justic...

ENGLISH AND FOREIGN EXTRACTS. TurE CAPTUnru OF TiHE CONFEDERATE IRON-crAD STEAMER ATLANTA.-Tho cap ture in Warsaw Sound of the Confederate Iron-clad Atalanta, alias Fingal, by Cap tain- Rogers, of the Mcehawkcen, is a splendid affair, and the most important naval capture of the war. She was the finest vessel the,Confederates ever had, and far more formidable than the Merrimac, and the result proves the efficacy of the 15 inch guns. She was armed with six guns, bone -inch pivot gun fore and aft, two 6 inch guns on each broadside, these were all of the Brooks pattern, which did" such execution on the Federal Iron-clads during the attack on Charlestown. They are rifled, and throw o1ng steel-pointed missiles. The Atalanta was formerly the British steamer Finial, was built on tie Clyde, and run the blockade successfuldly; she is 300 feet long, 40 feet beam; her gun deck covering is 200 feet long, 40 broad, and at the top 100 long by 14 broad, and six feet high; her armour is twelve inche...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent and Illawarra and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 22 September 1863
TO THE EDITOR OF TIlE KIASIA INDEPENDENT. SIl,-I should like to inquire how- it is that those gentlemen who were at one time ap pointed local patroens of the non-vested school in Kiaman, continue to allow it to re main without a competent teacher fobr such a length of time, thereby subjetingparents to a positive cailauity-tlheir children losing what little education they may lhave ac quired, and which, no doubt, in many eases parents have found a dilliculty to pay for. it surely cannot be that the school has not been remunerative enough, for I under stand that the former teaoher's salary and other emoluments amounted to something very handsome yearly; besides, it is said that some gentlemen, for the education of their sons by a properly qualified teacher, hlive expressed themselv-es di posed to come out very liberally tpwards his support. It is true we have ontaotller school, but who would be so insane as to send his child to a school held in a building, which some five years lgo wa...
