SATURDAY NIGHT IN A DIGGER'S HUT. SATURDAY NIGHT IN A DIGGER'S HUT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1865

SATURDAY NI6H1 IN A DIGGER'S HUT. [DRAWN BY N. CHEVALIER, E3Q.]— Ske page 7 [DRAWN BY N. CHEVALIER, E3Q.]— Ske page 7 SATURDAY TSTIGHT IN A DIGGER'S HUT. The scene here depicted . by onr artist is one that must be familiar to every one acquainted with our gold fields. Saturday night in a digger's hut, after a week of toil, hopes and fears, and often bitter disappoint ment — here is the result ! The sluice-box is cleaned out, the contents ' panned off,' cleaned, and carefully weighed, and the result, apparently, not unsatis factory, judging from the expression on the countenance of the one with the gold bag. The hut is one of those slab-built and bark-roofed ones so .numerous on all the diggings, and the speaker is one of a party of four who have stuck together through fair and foul for many a long day, and who have got into a good claim at last. Many a hard struggle have they had together, many a dark prospect, when the hard unyielding soil would not surrender its golden treasure fo...

SEIZURE OF THE SHENANDOAH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1865

SEIZURE OF THE SHENANDOAH. On Monday, 13th. inst., Mr Superintendent Lyttle ton. having obtained a warrant from the police magis trate at Williamstown, to arrest a British subject, named Charley, charged on oath, with having enlisted on board the Shenandoah, at this port, proceeded on board the ship and applied to the first lieutenant, to. whom he showed his warrant, to be allowed to, execute it. He was at once refused permission to do so, and he consequently left and returned to town. On Tuesday morning he again visited the ship, and stated his busi ness, offering at the same time to Captain Waddell, who was then on board, to produce his authority. Captain Waddell refused to allow him to execute the warrant, which, he said, it was unnecessary to show him. Mr LyttletoaTreturned to town and acquainted the autho rities ;\vith tliis second refusal.

CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE DUBLIN EXHIBITION.' The commissioners of the Dublin International Exhibition of 1865 will probably havo no reason to be dissatisfied with this colony for the share we have taken in promoting tho undertaking.

NATIVE CAMP. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1865

NATIVE CAMP. Our engraving represents an aboriginal family, as thoy may be seen in the unsettled parts of the country, camping out in tho open air. The blackfellows' camp is usually situated either on the border of a forest, or in a cleared space in the midst'of a thick scrub, and in either case not fur from a'creck or a native well. It generally consists of from three or four to a dozen rude mi-amias, or, as they aro palled in tho more northern ports of Australia, junyahs, which are constructed of three sticks, placed in the form of a tripod, and a nnm- ' 'berof sheets of bark or boughs placed upon them, as a protection from the wind and rain. Facing each of these, and at a distance of about throe or four feet from them, the proprietors make 'fires, which, at the same time, servo to warm tho occupants, to cook their victuals, and to Ice op away tho debbil-debbil, an evil spirit of which the nativoB aro oxtromely afraid in the; dark.

MORE OUTRAGES BY HALL'S GANG. ANOTHER MURDER BY THE BUSHRANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1865

MOKE OUTRAGES BY HALL'S GANG. ANOTHER MURDER BY THE BUSHRANGERS. Our police force has been again reduced by one, and the murderers have escaped. The victim in this case is Constable Nelson, stationed at the town of Collector, and his cowardly assassin is Dunn, who, in company with Hall and Gilbert, had taken advan tage of the temporary absence of the police to visit the township. The members of the gang, long ago, by their heinous crimes placed themselves beyond the pale of human mercy, and it is lamentable to think that any number of persons can be found in a civilised country to shield them from retribu tion ; yet, in the vice-regal speech, we are told, 'It is quite certain that these bush rangers are constantly aided by numbers of the inhabitants in the districts in which these crimes are committed.' The present is but one illustra tion out of many that theso felons have at all times means of obtaining accurate information of the movements of the police. The following is the tele...

ASSAULT BY A POLICE MAGISTRATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1865

ASSAULT BY A POLICE MAGISTRATE. There appears to have been a serious quarrel at Beeohworth, between Mr Barnard, the police magis trate, and his Honor Judge Cope, in the course of which the former struck the .latter, and which has resulted in the removal of Mr Barnard to some other place. Referring to this matter, the Ovens Constitu tion says :—-' It is now, we believe, no longer a secret that Mr Barnard, the police magistrate at Beeohworth, is about to be removed to another place. His.lo3S, both as a private gentleman and as a police magistrate, will be deeply felt by all who have known him. Being thus respected in public and private life, it is the more to bo regretted that any cause for his removal should arise, and thut in an evil hour he should so far have forgotten himself as to have committed at one and the same time two serious offences — the one a breach of the peace on the part of a police magistrate,' tho other an assault on a superior officer of the Government by one who ...

THE BUSH ON FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1865

THE BUSH ON FIRE. In the summer season of Australia, when for months not a drop of rain falls to refresh the parched earth, when the grass grows sear and yellow, and the cattle wander uneasily from one failing waterhole to another in search of the sparse green and succulent herbage, and the wherewithal to quonch their thirst, it is not unfrequent on the vast rolling plains that a fire accidently kindled will, in a few hours, lick up all tho sustenance, small as it is, that serves to keep the flocks and herds alive until the ram comes, and the fresh grass springs up, as it were, in a single night.- During the hot season, all hands on a station continually are on the look out for accidents of this land ; as, when they occur, as they often do, from the ?thoughtlessly thrown down match of- some careless stockman or shepherd, who, after lighting his pipe; recklessly drops the blazing splinter amongst the tinder-like grass, or from the glare of the sun upon some piece of broken bottle, wh...

OUTRAGE BY A BLACKFELLOW. Oar dates from South Australia are to the 7th inst. The Register says : — ' Another horrible out rage has been perpetrated upon a female by a half caste who lives with the aborigines in and about Port Elliot. It appears that the wife of a former named Ashbury, residing at Hindmarsh Valley, was, on Saturday evening about half-past six o'clock, returning home on foot from Port Elliot. She met three blackfellows, one of whom asked who she was, ohe replied ' Somebody,' and passed on. A short time, afterwards one of the party over took her, and commenced speaking to her in such a way as to disarm all suspicion. When they reaohed a place, however, that suited his purpose, he laid hold of a basket which she carried, and then the poor creature.noticed that the fellow, had been drink ing, and looked as if he meant her some mischief. She let go the basket, and ran away screaming in tho hope of obtaining assistance.. The villain, how ever, soon overtook her, threw her...

THE CONFEDERATE WAR STEAMER .SHENANDOAH. -.-?''? The arrival of the Shenandoah in Hobson's Bay on Wednesday, 25th January, the first Confede rate war vessel that has visited Victorian waters, ?appears to have created almost as much excitement t.a8 might have been anticipated — judging from the commotion occasioned a few monthB ago by a report that the Alabama was at the Heads — had that suc cessful cruiser herself found her way into Hobson's ?Bay before engaging in her last action. No small portion of the interest attaching to this visit of the Shenandoah and her crew is derived, from their fancied connection with Gapt. Semmes, and his ex ploits: in the craft which has become indissoliibly connected with his name. The Shenandoah is re garded as tbo Alabama radivlous, or the Phccnix like product of the wreck of that world-famed vessel.
