THE LATE MR. C. W. MUNT. TO THE EDITOR OP THE WALLAROO TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 19 April 1865
THE LATE MR. C. W. MUNT. TO THE EDITOR OP THE WA1LAEOO TIMES. Sir,—In your last issue appears a letter from Mr C. Todd, with reference to the late Air Munfc, taken from the Advertiser of the 12th inst., in which he strongly animadverts upon the conduct of Mr Wauchope and myself in connection with the circumstances attending the death of Mr I Mont. I wish to show that our conduct is not nearly so reprehensible as Mr Todd supposes, and if he had obtained a;-strictly impartial, account of the unfortunate affair, and had con sidered the matter with an unbiassed mind, I feel perfectly sure that he would not have expressed himself as he has done. Mr Todd gained his knowledge of Mr Munt's death from the Advertiser report. I unhesitat ingly assert that that report is glaringly one sided. Mr W. Graham—the predecessor of Mr Munt as Kadina Telegraphic Clerk, and, I am convinced, the writer of the report in question— endeavoured yery, strongly, in cross-examining me,'to show my conduct in the v...
EASTER FESTIVITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 19 April 1865
# EASTER FESTIVITIES. Of all places in the district the most plea sant to spend a holiday in is undoubtedly Port Wallaroo. Apart from the neat and thriving township, the cyclopean smelting works, the jetty, and the; shipping, the Bay itself is well deserving of a visit. . If natural features are attractive, the crescent-shaped line of coast, picturesque in aspect, now rising, into scrub-covered cliffs, or declining in grassy slopes to the sea, here showing a segment of sandy beach of silvery whiteness, there a pebbly strand, or lines of rugged rocks, together with the sparkling billows of the Bay, and the broad expanse of water gulf-ward, form a picture of surpassing love liness. And on Easter Monday the locality was thronged with respectably-attired visitors of all rankB and ages. They came from every part of the district—from Kadina, the mines, from Moonta, the scrub, and even from Port Wakefield and the Hummocks, and were con veyed hither by rail, on horseback, on foot, and in ve...

Branchville has been captured by Genera! Sherman. Mobile is reported to have surrendered. The Confederate Senate have rejected a bill to arm 200,000 slaves.

Wallaroo Times. WALLAROO, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 19 April 1865
WALLAROO, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 19. Oub Adelaide contemporaries have on more than one occasion drawn attention to the importance of securing a regular supply of fish for the market. In Mel bourne the subject is considered worthy of the assistance of the Government, who have placed one of the Government schooners and the sum of £500 at the disposal of a company formed for the purpose of deep sea fishing. An article we saw in a Melbourne paper on the subject, gave a glowing account of the riches of our colonial fisheries. It must have made epicures' mouths water to read of the near prospect of having turbot, plaice, mackerel, soles, butter fish, fiat heads, barracouta, &c., on their tables. We are of opinion that much more extensive fishing operations might be carried on in our own Gulf than have hitherto been attempted. The supply of fish brought into the market is uncertain. No doubt it sometimes happens that, like their Apostolic predecessors, the fisher men may have " toiled al...

AMERICA [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 April 1865
AMERICA Hie fleet opened with a heavy fire 011 Fort j Fisher, and the assault was made on the afternoon-of the 15th by Ames's division, with a brigade of the 4th Army Corps, aided by a battalion of marines, all under the command of General Terry. The fighting was desperate, the Confederate garrisqp of 2500 men using the advantages of its positipn to inflict heavj' loss on the enemy. Bu| after seven hours' fighting the Federals prevailed; the garrison, falling back to the extreme point of the penin sula, was followed and captured Many of ; the guns of the fort were injured by the terrible fire of the fleet. The accounts respecting guns captured vary from 4o to 72. It is - doubtful whether Battery Lamb, which domi nates Fort Fieher, had been captured or not. Admiral Porter says the marines who assaulted the sea face of FortFisher were swept away in s minute. On the north-east corner the Federal infantry fought like lions, contest ing every inch of ground, while theiron-clads and monit...

SUPPLY OF FISH. Our Adelaide contemporaries have on more than one occasion drawn attention to the importance of securing a regular supply of fish for the market. In Mel bourne the subject is considered worthy of the assistance of the Government, who have placed one of the Government schooners and the sum of £500 at the disposal of a company formed for the purpose of deep sea fishing. An article wfe saw in a Melbourne paper on the subject, gave a glowing account of the riches of our colonial fisheries. It must have made epicures' mouths water to read of the near prospect of having turbot, plaice; mackerel, soles, butter fish, flat heads, barracouta, &c., on their tables. 1 We are of opinion that much more extensive fishing operations .might bej carried on in our own Gulf than have1 hitherto been attempted.

MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 April 1865
MimNa. Very satisfactory progress is being made at the New Cornwall Mine, where the new lode is hold ing as good as ever, being about 2 feet in average width of ore. We are informed that the bulk of the ore raised from the new lode has averaged about 33 per cent., and that one shipment of 40 tons, although mixed with inferior ore, gave an average produce of 26 per cent, of pure cppper. At the Karkarilla Mine a good quantity of ore is being raised. Forty-six tons have been sent away during the month, and above 60tonB are at grass on the mine. The last branch of ore dis covered in the western crosscut is being stripped down, and yields about 2 tons per fathom. The engine has arrived by the Harriet Hope, and is now in transitu to the Mine. The lode in the end of the 60 fathom level is somewhat contracted, but still continues to yield about four tons per fathom. The lode in the winze still holds good, but the yield of ore has been neces sarily reduced, owing to the plan adopted to ex pe...
TRANSPORTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 April 1865
TRANSPORTATION. A question of great interest was answered by Mr Catdwell in Parliament on the 10th Feburary. In reply to Mr Moor, he said it was the intention of the Government to pro pose^measure for the total discontinuance of transportation to the Australian colonies within a period of three years. When ^Parlia ment met the whole series" of despatches on this vexed question were published, commenc ing with a despatch from the Duke of New castle, dated the 29th of January, 1864, to the Governorsof the se veralcolonies, comijsicatiiig to them the original decision of tW'vVvetti ment upon the report of the Royal Commission upon transportation, and closing with Mr Cardwell's despatch of the 26th of November announcing the decision of the Government to abandon transportation. The replies to these despatches are not included in the blue book, which you will, no doubt, receive by this mail. The despatches are, for the most • part;, already familar to your readers; but there is one writt...
