THE POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 12 January 1864
Trel following coflrnieation has been ad dressed to .t various local benches throp~dhstt tho colony. We may congra. tulate ourselves that the magistrates of Kiama have not had the same motives to discover defects in the police organization as those of certain western districts have done. The qualities of officers and men have not been put to the severe test of chasing or fighting bushrangers ; and there has been no dillficulty in tle pecrformance of such ordinary duties as have illcen to them to undertake. Moreover there has been no sort of collision, but a peribet good feeling and cordiality between the sub-inspcetor located here on the one hand, and the bench of magistrates and the inhabitants on the other. Colonial Secretary's Office, Sydney, 19th Dec., 1863. Gentlemen,--The alleged inoefficiency of the police under the netw system, esta blished since the passing of the Police Re gulation Act of 1861, having been of lito t?he subject of much comment and ;'om plaint from various q...

ENGLISH AND FOREIGN EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 12 January 1864
ENGLISII AND FOREIGN EXTRACTS. Tan cultivation of tea appears to be rapidly extending in India. The whole of the slopes of the Himalayas are being taken up, and it is c?cnlated that in a few years at the presehli rate of progress, the oxport will exceed that of China.. SIet B. B. LYTTON ON FonaMs oF GOVERINMENT.-If I Were an American, I should regard as the worst afflic tion that could befall my country the sub stitution for democracy, with all its faults, of a constitutional monarchy, with its merits, because my countrymen would have been accustomed to associate their elementary ideas of liberty with republi can .institutions. So being an English man, I should regard it as the worst aflic tion that counld befal my countrymen, to substitute for constitutional monarchy a democratic republic; because their liabits of mind are formed on the notion that libeity, on the whole, is safer, and in the dignity of life is higher, where the institutious essential to the duration of constitional...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 12 January 1864
Txaiproceedings of the Legislative Assemn bly during the past week have not been calcilated to improve 'the opinion.,pnttr tained by the country in general either of the intelligence, the. manners, or .the special fitnesss for their functions, exhi bited by our reprdsentatives in Parliameht assembled.' It is remarkable that the di1isions which have lately taken place while the House has been engaged with the consideration of the tariff, have uni formly exhibited a very decided majority for the Ministry. The latter, indeed, ap pear as safe in this. respect as evern the Cowper Ministry was supposed, tobe.; and the squiad of membe"rswhlo almoust-oialtbo gether in silence, follow Messrs Martin iind Eagar on every division,' sebu justly entitled to the contemptuous taunts With which they have been assailed by thoe p position.

RAILWAY AUCTION DEPOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 12 January 1864
SAILUWAY AUCTION DEPOT. Fat Cattle-A col~tinuatiost of.the previous depression, aggravated, if anything, by the recent large arrivals. I sold at the. Victoria Yards 209 head of White's cattle' (very prime), at £3 3s. I also passed 230 head for shipment to New- Zealand. During the'last month, however, the bulk of the sales have been under 40s per head, which entails such a loss on the stock owners, that I have been induced to open the Collingwood Boiling-down Establishment, which will have the double advantage of reducing the glut. and prevent ing squatters selling below boiling rotcs. Fat Sheep.-Thle arrivals are greater than the demand; inferior almnostunsaleablo ; prime flocks, lls to 12s. Store Sheep.-Some cnquires have lately arisen for this class.

THE COLONIAL SECRETARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 12 January 1864
THE COLONIAL SECORTAZY. NEAItLY everybody h1as been deceived aboot the Hen. William Forster. We have heard so much about his honesty, purity, and singlemindedness, that Iho passed muster as a sort of Andrew Mar vell. I used to think that if Diogenes had met him in Athens, lihe would hiave blown out his lantern and said-"Alh ! here's an honest man at last.". This was all an illusion, and it shows how casily a man acquires a reputation for that wihich he does not possces. You may now print it ts a fact thsat William Forster is an in sincere, painstaking, political humsbug, not a bit Ihonester than his nceighbors. Could a really honest man:, known for a few years as a freetrader, and anti State-aid man, a democrat, ever associate himself with a body of men like the Martin Ministry? I trow not. How could an honest free-trader stand up and vindicate the Eagar tariff? It could not be done, as we know, by an honest nmn, but William Forster, the honest, honest politician par excelletce does...
PLEURO-PNEUMONIA AND VACCINATION. To the Stockowners of Victoria and New South Wales. (Concluded) [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 12 January 1864
PLEUIIURO-PNEUMONIA AND VACCI NATION. BY OGIIirAlO MITCHELL, ai.i.O.v.8., F..Bs.E., DOONNYBROOK AND 3IELBOURNE. To the Stocloioners of Victoria and New South lYatles. (Concluded) TiHE preventive measures that have been adopted here by the Government and by the owners of cattle proved abortive in ridding the colony of the disease; having been delayed till it was too late, and little or no benefit being found from ad ministering medicine. It became neces sary to look for something else easily ap plied and effectual in preventing or cheeking this disease. Attention was then directed to inoculation, which, no doubt, would have been the cure resorted to in England twenty years ago, had not the practice of slaughtering and eating the affected animals been generally adopted, and it appears that inoculation, as there applied, soon got into disrepute, until re-introduced by a physician in Belgium, in 1S52, whose practice proved highly successful, though deaths from the operation occasionally...
INDEPENDENCE OF IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 12 January 1864
INDEPENDENCE OF IRELAND. Now, an independent Ireland is of course out of the question; but surely it is not to be said that the extinction of this rank injustice of the law of landlord and tenant is out of the question ? If so -if English statesmen choose rather to acquiesce in the will of the Irish land lords and their ally the Church, than to consult the clear rights and interests of the Irish people, they must not be sur prised if a worse difficulty should arise. The.young men. of Ireland who still re main at home do not think that for the present they could have any chance against England, but quiet discontent makes. them nourish the hope that the time may come. This was the tone of the Tipperary meeting. .And may the time not come, and come too largely in conse. quenceo of the existence of this feeling of Irish hostility towards England. People here who talk lightly of a war with the United States know little what they say. Not a soldier nor a seaman would be got from Ireland t...

THE OLIVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 12 January 1864
THE OLIVE. The following very interesting and use feal letter has been addressed by the Elon S. Davenport to the Editor of the Ade laide Register : Sir,-As our science of agriculture needs extension, and as eternal wheat-, growing now fails to remunerate those' cultivators who do'not renovate the older soils annually producing it, I may, per-. haps, invite attention to the olive, whose cultivation, I venture to say, ought to form a portion of' the stated business of many'a farm. Rows of. it in the vine-: yard will give useful slelter .and add'to the returns. A recent visit 'to districts ii Europea where it is' grown enabled me to gather some information on the olive, which I-. gladly place at the disposal'of those whom it may interest. That the olive-tree will' rise with rapi dity and luxuriance amongst us is evident from the many:ekcellent examples already existing in the gardens and other planta tions about Adelaide. That it will flower most abundantly may be 'seen in nume rous lo...
HALLETT'S PEDIGREE WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 12 January 1864
EALLETT'S. PEDIGREE WHEAT; (From"'tce farmer's Jourtnal.) ALL previous attempts to acclimatise this celebrated wheat in the Melbourne dis trict, and..as ,far as we have yet ascer tained, in the colony, ohaving failed, it is with no ordinary pleasure that we chroni cle the genuine success that has at letigth attended theicombined efforts of Mr. Ed ward 'Wilson and his overseer, Mr. Meor gan. The dilficulty, that has always been experienced in. getting English seed wheats to grow here is attributable to a variety of causes, a knowledge of which would have enabled importers to avoid them by the adoption of .a few common sense precautions. In few English sum mers is wheat so well mintured as to stand a long sea voyage without injury to its vitality, 'especially, when consigued, as has generally been the case with impor tations of this pedigree wheat, to the holtd of the vessel. Witi the knowledge possessed by seed importers, we are sur prised that no directions for extra drying have bee...
THE AUSTRALIAN MAIL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 12 January 1864
TIHE AUSTRALIAN a?LIL SERVICE. TiE fome rives sayv, in reference to this subject:-- The lifferences existing botween the Australian crlonics on the subject of a fortnightly mail conmmunica tion with England seem to increase rather than diminish at the prospect of a settle ment of the question. Indlependently of the original grounds of difference, which are familiar to all our readers, a fresh dissension has arisen out of the offer of the Peninsular and Oriental Company to undertake the extra service for an addi tional subsidy of £50,000 per annum. This proposal is £10,000 less than the offer made by the same company for the same service last year; and the reduction is attributed by the dissentient colonies to the impending threat of competition on the part of New Zealand and New South Wales. That the Peninsular and Oriental Company should be stimulated to greater activity, and even to a lower bid for the contract, by the apprehension of a formidable rival in the field, is the most n...
