AGRICULTURAL CAPABILITIES OF N. S. WALES. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) No. I. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 26 May 1856

AGRICULEUEAL CAPABILITIES OJF N. S. WALES. (To the Editor of the lllawarra Her cur.) ' . No. I. Bkyond the boundaries of the colony it is an almost universal opinion that the soil and climate of New South Wales are altogether unadopted foragricultural pursuits. Not very far back the sum© opinion prevailed to a considerable extent even among persons residing in the country. But who, either through prejudice or selfish motives, clung to it. To what extent it still exists among us, we cannot exactly say. We have no svmnathv with shp.K n» idea. Its advocates have surely hud suflicient proof of its utter absurdity. While holding this idea to be false, v,e do not at the same time set down all the country as one continuous ragton of unprecedented fertility. Far from it. Every one is aware that a vast extent of this oolony is altngether worthless for agriculture: But what we hold is this, viz. — That, althouhh New Soil h Wules werethe most densely peopled country on the face of the globe, s...

TO CHARLES KANSOME, ESQ., OF EANSOME CASTLE KIAMA. (PerfavourofthelllaivarraMereurv.) ' Sir — Having a few leisure hours to spend at this beautiful and lovely watering place, I have left the busy scene of city lite, hoping thereby to recruit, my health, and return to Sydney with some degree of satisfaction at having been a tourist in 'New South Wales _; and, although I cannot come out as one of the Upper Ten- yet, still, I will eniov myself as far as mv finannea o-n. T Imvo. therefore, located myself at a spot where I can overlook the' crowd, and I deeply regret that this highly spoken of Kiama abounds with defects, which I hope to see remedied at some future period. In the first place, it certainly has been to me a source of pain as a visitor to see every morning cattle or horses taken to the publie pound, and on enquiry I have invariably had the answer of ' Oh, they are Charley's.' Why your cattle are singled out of a num ber that are running about in all directions, I cannot pret...

Country News. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 26 May 1856

: Cntmfnj 3km, Maitxand ScnooL of Arts. — The fortnightly lecture was de livered by Mr. Ewan, on Thursday evening, the subject being 'Domestic Economy, Social Economy, and Political Economy ; their relation to each other, and the moral influence which they have oil the happiness of the community.' The lecturer started by telling his audience that he intended to lecture them, and to tell them how to conduofc themselves, and by so acting: they would ensure genuine happiness. The word economy is derived from two Greek words, oikos, a house, and momos, a rule or law, which means the rule or law of the house. By degrees it took a moro extensive application, and was applied to villages, towns, and nations. The word eoouomy has outgrown itself, and certain words have been added to it, so as to clearly define its meaning. Domestic economy is the regulation of the house, social economy is regularity amongst friends, and political economy is the regula tion of a country. He explained that dom...

ILLAWARRA STEAM COMMUNICATION. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 26 May 1856

ILLAWAItRA STEAM COMMUNICATION. (To the Editor of the lllawarra Mercury.) Sir — There are three steamers in. lllawarra ; one on three several points of the district, and yet, from some evil working in their management, the intercourse be tween the several ports is almost neutralized. It is all but impossible for the inhabitants or visitors of 'Wollongong to reach Kiama or Shoalhaven — nor to reach Sydney except at the pleasure of one steamer, neither ae a corrollary, can the inhabitants or visitors of Shoalhavens or Kiama reach 'Wollongong. . By a system of friendly co-operation between the re spective owners of the steamers, we could have almost a daily access to Sydney by sea, and on most days of the week to the other portions of the district. But no ! although the port of Wollongong is public property, and created for the benefit of the public, it is hermetically sealed by the power of four or five individuals against all comers. Business of every kind is injured, and the sea por...

THE ROAD TO DAPTO. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 26 May 1856

THE KOAD TO DAPTO. tier favour of the lllawarra Mercury.) It will, no doubt, be necessary, at some early period, to devise and carry out some better mode of raising the means of repair- ? ing the public road through {his district, than is at present 'flruvlad by a pittance of seven pounds a mile doled annually from the Government, and supplimented by subscriptions. Can there be greater cruelty than to give a man seven pounda a mile to repair the Dapto Eoad with, aiid exnect him to make a reasonable display of skill iu road making? Such is the task of a warden : to which is added (as it is impossible to do the road for the seven pounds) the pleasing business of collecting, by subscriptions, the deficient funds. To arrive at a better state of things than this, will take time. Our new Parliament will have much on its hands at first, and considerable dela47 may occnr before any road act is passed, or brought into operation ; and, as for further grants of public money this year — as each...

: ICnral ffetarwtttf. {Abridged Uom the Age, May 18.) ' We have just received the proof-sheets of another local history which gathers up these fragments of the past. It k the production of Mr. Bonwick, who has already made *ome valuable contributions to Australian literature. His present work is not a mere compilation from previous books of the kind, but opens up new ground. And not only ao, but it throws new light upon some points in our «arly annals. For example, Batman is not the semi - aboriginal that he has generally been described by Mr. Fawkner, who is here convicted of having aspersed the ?character of his co-pioneer in the colonization of this country. Batman, as depicted in Mr. Bonwick's pages, is entitled to our respect. Mr. Fawkner also, figures as * decent, respectable gentleman, who has no occasion to be ashamed of his ' antecedents.' In fact, ' the Fawk ners and the Batmans' appear to have been two rival Vandemonian tribes, like the Campbells and the Mac donalds, or l...
