The Country. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 19 May 1856

€Jjt Cnttiifn}, Maitland School of ArtSi— At the fortnightly meeting, oit Thursday evening* Mr. Sinclair gave an essay on 'Spirit Rapping.' After a few remarks on the debateable nature of tho subject, he proceeded to show tho different tests which had been applied to it iti England ; some ascribing it to desease, to mono mania, spectral illusions) mental illusions, Ac. But I10 argued that they could not be brought to bear upon the subject. Many of the wisest men have tested it in a great many ways, and wero perfectly bewildered ; and the only conclusion that could be arrived at was, that the sounds were occasioned by mysterious agencies. Having explained the subject of the ?? mediums,' ' of whom he asserted tnere Wet'e 30,000, and through whom the spirits were supposed to communicate with man in the flesh, be proceeded to show the manner in which the communications were made, adducing several amusing and wonderful incidents as con vincing truths. He concluded that imposture was out ...

[?] An American Breakfast.— (Present, a gentleman, and two young ladies.)—' Miss, it's Jeediii'* time, I guess ; what will you eat?' 'You're very polite ; what's the ticket?'1 'Chickens and corn fixings, and pork with onion fixings.'* ' Well, I'm hungry some : I'll have some pig and fixings.'1 The swain retired, and brought a profusion of viands, which elicited the remark, ' Well, I guoss that's substantial, anyhow.' ' ihe J'Oting ladies' appetites seemed to be very good, for I heard the observation, ' Well, you eat considerable ; you're in full blast, I guess.' ' Guess I am ; it's all-fired cold, and I have been an everlastin' long time off my feed.' A long undertoned conversation followed this interchange of civilities, when I heard the lady say, in rather elevated tones, ' You're piling it on a trifle too high.' ' Well, I did want to put up your dander. Do tell me now, where was you raised ?' 'In Kentucky.' 'I could have guessed that; whenever I sees a splenderiferotis gal, a kin...

His Excellency the Governor Genera^ .read a paper on Railways, of which the following is an abridgement from the Empire, of Monday. J The experiments which have been carried on for the last 30 years in various parts of the world have been uniform in certain results, which may, therefore, be safely laid -lown as general principles for our guidance in discussing the policy of adopting railroads as our principal means of internal communication. It has been shown that in creased facilities of communication have an immediate tendency to augment traffic. The augmentation, however, takes place to a much greater extent in passengers tlmii in goods. That increased facility of communication is in all cases productive of economy ; this, however, is shown more in the transit of goods than of passenger...

THE CLERICAL NOMINEES OE THE UPPER HOUSE. The long expected advent of the New Constitution is about to dawn. Members fop the Lower House, or Parliament, have been chosen, and nominees for the Upper House have been nominated. In our last issue, we gave, in extenso, the names of the gentlemen who are fcj form our future House of Lords ;, and, sure enough, they are a motley group. Long ago, and while the ? subject of a Botany Bay Peerage was being agitated, cjmmon sense people were continually asking : ' Where are our Peers to come from ?' 'Where are the elements out of which a truly respectable Upper Ho.use can be formed?' In answer to such queries as these, some could see no difficulty in the; matter whatever. Over night, our lovers of sauce might ask, 'Where shall mushrooms be found?' When, lo T the sun rises,, and there they are in great abundance at your very doors : and, so, while we were sleeping and dreaming, Peers and Peeresses were being formed ; and n.ow, by his Excel lency'...

Though he affected a smile of open-hearted jollity and good-humour, as well became him on this evening, there was a dark twinkle in his eye, and a quiver in his under lip, that showed his temper was not entirely unruffled. In fact, the numerous excuses he had received from pe: sons whom he would gladly have had honour his daughter's nup tials with their presence had greatly chagrined Mm, and he was, besides, at all times of a haity and ireful mood.

(From the Herald's Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 19 May 1856

\ (From the Herald's Correspondmt.) A singular instance of partial justice has occurred within the last few days. Four voun men, recent arrivals, tut well connected, especially with the squatters, were recently taken before the city Magistrates for a violent assault on the police at the Theatre Royal. Their conduct was ruffianly in the jxtreme, and the charge was clearly brought home to them; So strong an opinion had the Bench of Magistrates, Mr. Stur presiding, of the necessity of making an evample of them that tiny were committed to prison for one month. Great influence was, however, at once set in motion ; they were sent to gaol, by themsdves, with a polite request to the governor that they might be treated with ' con sideration.' A second examination, this time vitli closed doors, t ok place immediately, the decision of. the Beich was reversed, and the young men were set at liberty after an incarceration of one night only. The Melbourne Bench has ievor been very popular, and thi...

NEW ZEALAND. SERIOUS NATIVE DISTURBANCES. (From the Taranaki Herald.) We regret to announce the renewal of the native disturbances at Bell Block, and a new inroad of the Ngatiruanui people swelling the combatants. From our inquiries it appears that Pirini of Whareroa, with about forty of the Ngatiruanui natives, came up by the mountain route, and reached the IGiipakonako on the 12th instant, and 1 commenced hostilities by firing ball cartridge at the Ninia .This new calling in of the Ngatiruanui people bv Katatore, and subse quent aggressive proceeding, occasioned fierce excitement, which has led to a fatal conflict, in which several have been killed, and a number mere or less seiiously wounded. The particulars of the affray are, as near as we can learn, as follows : — On Tuesday the Ngatiruanui men, with Katator's people, at tacked the Ninia natives who were cutting the fern by the Mau gatarawaho, and drove Jthem from their work. Later in the day ao irregular firing having been kep...
