THE CATTLE DISEASE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA EXAMINER [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 March 1860
. THE CATTLE DISEASE. TO Tun EDITOR Or TOE KIAMA ETASOISEiS Smi,-If theo preservation of the. health and condition of domestic animals, is an object of first importance in any country, under any circumstances; how much more then tiust it be an object of anxious solicitude in this colony, and particularly.. in this district where the natural pros perity of its inhabitants is depending solely upon the productivo qualities of their cattle. We need not there fore wonder at the alarm evinced by the good people of the.Kiama district, upon seeing their choice aund beauti ful stock suddenly attacked by a mysterious malignant and fatal diseo1e. It was my consciousness of this as well as my senise of the manifest necessity that exists on the part of every good colonist, to contribute whatever little knowledge ho may consider himself possessed ofre lIting to questions involving the general interest of the community, that induced me to attend the late meeting at Kiama, where, by giviug expressi...
ULLADULLA. February 29. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 March 1860
ULLADULLA. February 29. Teae Fooons.-Tho amount on the Relief Subsoriltions. list is fast increasing, and I have no doubt but what we will raise a handsome sum hereo; and that too without the aid of the so.called sporting men who could not forego their pleasure for a short while, to render assist. anuce to their starvinig fellow-mortals. In connexion with this, I may as well state my opinion that there will not be any races here this year, for there is likely to be 1no horses come to compote for the prizes, and therefore there will not be enough to makeup the, entrances. This will serve them (the sporting men)l right, and I shall not be sorry to see them go to the dogs. 'lis not a tie to sport and play .

BRUNELL, DIED SEPTEMBER, 1859. STEPHENSON, DIED OCTOBER, 1859. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 March 1860
BRUNELL, DIED SEPTEMBER, 1859. &nbsp; STEPHENSON, DIED OCTOBER, 1859. A Nations' Pioneers — they rest. To mock Renown like theirs with sculptured tomb were shame ; Where the bridged chasm, or where the pierced rock Attests mind's victory, read each hero-name. Yet in an epitaph their names shall live, That Silence, there, may pay one noble due: THEY DIED UNTITLED ! Of what courts can give. No jot, O knaves and fools, they grudged to you. — Punch.
FASHIONABLE ANTHEM [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 March 1860
FASHIONABLE ANTHEM. Long live our gracious Queen, Who won't wear Crinoline, Long love the Queen ; May her example spread, Broad skirts be narrowed, Long trains be shortened ; Long live the Queen ! O storm of scorn arise, Scatter French fooleries, And make them pall. Confound those hoops and things, Frustrate those horrid springs, And India rubber rings, Deuce take them all ! May dresses flaunting wide, &nbsp; Fine figures cease to hide ; Let feet be seen ; Girls to good taste return, Paris flash modes unlearn, No more catch fire and burn, Thanks to the Queen ! — Punch.
JAMBEROO. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 March 1860
JAMBEROO. I have for once an event of huge importance to record. The reverend Percy Jennings Smith has resigned his "core of souls" in the locality. The glory is departed from Jamberoo ! Such is the disconsolate exclamation of the young woman of his singing class, no loss than of those among their elder, whose delight is in the inno cent and edifying gossip which sweeten tea more than even untaxed sugar can do. The latter are indeed con vinced that more agreeble companion of their social &nbsp; hours and piano small talk, never did and never will wear the shape of man. " No, sir, nor woman neither." It may not, perhaps, he absolutely impossible to find ano ther minister of the Gospel endued with equal zeal and eloquence ; but what, I wonder, is to become of those un fortunate and interesting animals which, at such a prodi gious expenditure of trouble and treasure, Mr. Smith contrived so completely to naturlise on Episcopalian ground in Jamberoo-I mean the three blind mice.

JAMES' REVOLVING BATTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 7 March 1860
JAMens' REVOLVING BATToRY.--Our readers will re member that some two months ago we called attention to the ingenious invention of Mr. William James, of Dowling-street, Woolloomooloo, for the defence of' Port Jackson; We had the satistfction on Thursday last of inspecting the model of the revolving battery, made cooformably to the strongly expressed wish of his Excel lency the Governor-General. MIr. Jones politely worked his model for us, and impressed us with the conviction that his invention is a complete success. The model, small as it is, is eminently suggestive. On a revolving platform are twelve tiny gmns, protected in front by screens (which can be lowered on the instant a gun is ready to be discharged), and the whole covered by a dome, in the actual erection of a battery to be mdo o of heavy wrought iron. The guns are placed on carriages, which run backwards and forwards on rails, and can be all discharged-ono every two seeond-lby a single gunner. Seven men only are required ...

THE "TIMES" ON THE AUSTRALIAN COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 7 March 1860
THE TIJIES'" ,';;ITE AUSTRL 1t 1 .(FROMV T E TIMES, 10TH.DECEMDER.) - 'How,,those, children do -grow I" A hundred thousand aunts and -uncles and "friends .of ,the ,family".will be making this sago reflection during tho next three weeks, and many hundreds of thou sands of'pa.pas and mammas will look round with much pride and some little apprehension. "IIow these colonies do grow I" France, who looks in just now with a friendly face, thinks of her own Aigeria, the sun of her mature age, nursed and taught upon the strictest principles, and with utter disregard to expanse, and yet who won't grow; Spain thinks of her own dwindling scapegrace soils; and both compare their offspring with those tall Anglo-Saxon olive branches who were babies in logeclothes yesterday, sand who stand erect in shooting-jackets and crinolines to-day. Old gentle men are apt to think that children certainly do grow much quicker than they used to do, and, it were lawful to judge of individuals by political develop...

The.author of the " Friends of Bohemia" and " The Governing Classes" had passed away in the spring tide of his youth having given the world barely an indication of his extra ordinary powers. For. years few things have more shocked and saddened us than this. Mingled deep sympathy with griefs hich made his case with our intense adniiration of his genius,' was a signal and ?salient in the annitls of domestic sor roiw.. We'had never had.the pleasure. of seeing Mr. Whitty, but kindly letters had. been ex changed, :mutual friends had created a mutual interest and he once wrote of his iritention to visit Sydney.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 7 March 1860
A PARAGRAPHI in our last issue will have in formed our readers of the retirement of the FOeaSTER Ministry. On the morning succeeding the passing of the vote of want of confidence, moved by our member Mr. GRAr-whose speech on the occasion will be found in full in another part of this issue-the PREMIERt waited upon his Excellency the GOVicRNOR-GENERAL to place in his hands his own resignation and that of his colleagues. This event will scarcely have occasioned a feeling of even momentary surprise to the public. Mr. FORSTER'S move ments when only upon the threshold of office showed him to be deficient in decision and judg ment, qualities upon which success in any posi tion of life greatly depends; and wanting which a man in the prominent and responsible situa tion of the leader of a Government needs the surest and safest guides to power, and the best guarantees for retaining it. His writing to Mir. ARNsore and Mr. ROTTEN, asking them to join his Ministry, and then, before the ink on hi...
