MR. JAMES MACARTHUR, OF CAMDEN PARK, NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 18 March 1865

MR. JAMES MACARTHUR, OF CAMDEN PARK, NEW SOUTH WALES. James Macarthur belongs to a family that will ever be held in honor by Australians. His fathor, John Macarthur, was the founder of the Australian wool trade, having been the first to introduce fine-woolled sheep into the colony. Sheep had been intro- duced from the time of earliest settlement but solely for the purpose of supplying the population with mutton. These sheep were mostly of a breed which was originally brought from Bengal, and the covering they wore was like hair rather than wool. In 1793, five years after the foundation of the colony, Captain John Macarthur was stationed in Sydney with his regiment, and, being gifted with a faculty of keen observation, he noticed that the texture of these hairy Bengalese sheep was susceptible of ameliora- tion. By patient and vigilant, observation he became fully assured, of the fact that the coarsest fleeces grow sensibly finer in the course of time, and, by theorising on the fact, ...

HARSH CONDUCT OF A SQUATTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 18 March 1865

HARSH CONDUCT OF A SQUATTER. A correspondent forwards us the following particulars relative to a case of alleged harsh conduct on the part of a squatter towards a poor widow : — ' Some years aco an hotel was erected and licensed on the run of a squatter named John Ware, of Yalla-y-poora, and, be ing situated in a somewhat sparsely inhabited neighborhood, was considered a great boon to the traveller, as no other hospitality could be procured within many miles of the place. For a considerable time the business was car ried on in a way that reflected credit on the proprietor, and induced the custom of a number who were resident in, or travellers through, the locality. After a time the host died, and the cares for the provision of a large family, as well as the carrying on of the hotel, devolved upon the widow. She struggled, with an energy that excited much sympathy, to support her self and family. The hotel was situated not far from the residence of Mr John Ware ; its proximity excite...

NEW SOUTH WALES. Teaces of Leichhardt. — A correspondent of the Queensland Guardian, on the Warroo, Mr Frede rick Braoker, sends the following communication : — ' Having read in your valuable paper the report of Mr Macintyre's discovery of what that gentleman supposed to be two of Mr Loichhardt a camping places, and of his having subsequently found two horses thonght to have belonged to that gentleman, while on his expedition, I feel moved, through a long and intimate acquaintance with the doctor and his friends in Germany, to give you what little information I possess which may throw any light on hiB last unfortunate expedi tion. If it be not of much importance in itself, it may, perhaps, prove of some use in helping to decide, amidst the many conflicting statements made and doubts entertained, respecting Dr. Leichbardt's fate. When I was managing the com pany's station at Rosenthsl, Dr. Leichhardt called to visit me, and left a number of his horses with me to be sold to the best a...

MINING ENTERPEISE AT TARADALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 18 March 1865

MINING ENTERPRISE AT TARADALE. Taradale, on the 6th inst., was the scene of one of those festivities which now usually take place at the beginning of a new min- ing enterprise. Taradale and its neighborhood had a reputation as a gold-field some eight or ten years   ago, during the period which miners call "pipe-   clay punching," or shallow sinking; but, as soon as the surface hills and gullies and the present bed of the Coliban River and Bock Creek had been washed to the edge of the blue stone plateau, the mining en- terprise of the place died out, with the exception of some few efforts at quartz mining. Profiting by the example of the miners of Ballaarat, some of the more enterprising of the Taradale miners began, a year or two back, to make attempts to ex- plore the country beneath the basalt, by putting in drives either from the Coliban or Back Creek side, the result always be- ing that although they frequently found gold to repay them, they always foun...

ALARMING BUSH FIRES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 18 March 1865

ALARMING BUSH FIRES. The hot winds which prevailed in Melbourne, on 27th February, appear to have been prevalent throughout the colony, and bush fires, which proved more than usually destructive, seem also to have been of very general occurrence. We take the fol- lowing particulars from our country contem- poraries : — ? ', BALIiAAItAT. The fiercest hot wind day of the season occurred -on Monday, and by the the middle of the day the whole air was charged with dust, which the gales from the north drifted violently into every cranny and crevice. 'What with dust and smoke, the hori zon was scaroely visible at all, and frequently it was entirely hidden , while the hot blasts and still ing dust kept the streets clear of all but those per sons who were compelled to be about town. At about four p.m. the wind veered round to tho south ward, and with a cooler air there came also slight showers of rain. About midday the thermometer .kept at tho District Survey Office showed 99 deg. in the sha...

BRUTAL CHILD MURDER ON EMERALD HILL. A brutal murder of a child was perpetrated be- tween ten and eleven o'clock on Tuesday night, the 28th ult., on Emerald Hill. The particulars,   as at first reported, were as follows: — A man   named Stacey, late an engineer — at is said on board the Alhambra — was living with a woman in Alfred place, Emerald Hill. He had three chil-   dren by his own wife; and the woman with whom he was cohabiting, and whose husband is in New   Zealand, also had a child, who was living with her in Tracey's house.

IMPORTANT FROM TAURANGA. THE BAU, HIGH PRIEST OF THE PAI MAMRES, WITH FIFTY-SIX REBELS TAKEN PRISONERS. These rebel natives were taken prisoners by the Ngaitehourangi and others, at the Rotoiti, at the instigation of Colonel Greer, C.B., commanding this district, whose exertions deserve the highest praise, in being the means of having such a mob of rebels and fanatics secured while on their way to join and influence or incite the disaffected natives of the Southern districts to join them in their wicked and false religion. Their capture was effected in the following manner : — Colonel Greer having received information that these rebels had, by some means, been permitted to pass through the district of Maketu unmolested, felt very indignant that sufficient warning had not been given to Major Kirby, who commands tho fort at Maketu, till it was too late for him to impede their progress ; and upon receipt of this information he despatched Mr Rice, the Government interpreter at this stat...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 March 1865

NEW ZEALAND. Great Fire in Auckland. — Estimated Loss, £30,000. — The New Zealander of the 15th ultimo reports as follows : — At a quarter-past two o'clock this morning, one of those calamitous fires for which Auckland is gradually becoming celebrated broke out. So far as is now known, it originated in a wooden building known as the 'Victoria Hotel, which extends from Fort street into Shprtland street. In less than forty minutes from the time the fire was discovered, there were five bnildings wholly destroyed, and a sixth was in a blaze, namely, the large three-story hotel of Messrs S. P. James and Co., now in course of erection, and it was for some time hoped that it would have checked the flames. From sheer heedlessness, no means were taken to guard against the fire spreading beyond ? James's building, and it was, therefore, not long before : it did spread to the wooden building known as Bedford House. The fire then rapidly cleared its way to Canning, the confec tioner's shop, and...

A STRANGE STORY. The following strange and eventful story, if not vouched for by persons of the highest respectability, would be deemed more a tale of romance than a simple narrative of facts which have recently oc curred in the life of one of our fellow colonists, whose fate might be our own. About twelve years and a half ago, a young man, who had been liberally educated and respectably brought up, determined on pushing his fortune in this colony, and accord ingly emigrated.

CHINESE GARDENING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 March 1865

CHINESE GARDENING. The class of Chinamen mostusoful to their Euro can neighbors, next to the miners, who are adding the wealth of the country, are the gardeners. There are few townships in the colony the inhabi tants of which are not mainly dependent on the Chinese for a constant and regular supply of fresh vegetables of the very finest quality. Such, at least, may bo said to.be the case on the gold-fields. Any idea of competing with the Chinese among our gold-fields townships, in the production and sale of vegetables, appears to be pretty generally aban doned ; and, although farmers will bring cabbages, pumpkins, and suoh like to the weeldy markets, the Chinamen maybe seen moving from door to door, by seven or eight o'clock every morning, laden with fresh green esculents. At all seasons, and in every description of weather, the Chinese gardener has got some kind of vegetable for sale. Neither heat nor cold, droughtnor rain, affeots thisregular supply. There are a great many of thos...

THE MELBOURNE FISH MARKET. The Fish Market, now in course of erection nt the corner of Flinders and Swanston streets, a view of which, as completed, forms the subject of the accom panying sketch, is one of the most important municipal works undertaken in the city for some time. XJiero has hitherto boon little or no accommodation for the sale of fish, and the hawking of tho scaly delicacies through the streets, besides being unproductive of corporation duties, is, in some seasons of tho year, inimical to the public health. Melbourne is well supplied with fish from Hobson's! Bay and neighboring fishing grounds ; and there is little donbt that the market ?will ever be ill furnished or badly attended. The building will bo u very substantial structure. Its extent is 99 feet by 80 feet, nnd it occupies the whole area of available ground. The foundations and cellars are of bluestone, and the npper portion of the building is of white and red bricks. The structure is 43 feet high from the gr...
