ALLEGED CASE OF STICKING-UP. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 March 1865

ALLEGED CASE OF STICKING-UP. ? The Gipps Land Times gives currency to the fol lowing very doubtful story of a case of alleged 8ticldng-up :— ' There has been a considerable amount of excitement created on the Donelly's Creek road by a German, named Ficarou, coming into Stringer's Creek, on the 20th February, and alleging he had been stuck up by a man answering to the following donoxi0on, which Is a pretty cor xcdb one, of t)-o bjjBhrangqr Morgan ! — ?

RESULTS OF THE HARVEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 March 1865

KESULTS OP THE HARVEST. It is to early at present for the Government agri cnltnral statistics to make their appearance. But after the close of a harvest public cariosity is al ways alive to know what the general result of that harvest has been. This curiosity cannot be satis ,-fied with, exactitudes, all that can be done is to make an approximation. With regard to Victoria, we have already given the estimate made by the 2-fel- bourne Age. Considerable pains seem to have been taken to secure the information on which this estimate is based, and we know no reason for de preciating its accuracy. According to our contem . porary, the Victorian wheat harvest is scarcely up to half the average of the production prior to the appearance of rust. The heavy losses incurred in the previous year have deterred farmers from trusting again too much to wheat, and the crops that have been reaped have suffered to some, extent from a reappearance of the scourge. This visitation has been a serious drawb...

THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 March 1865

THE MOJNTH. The past month has been one of greater political excitement than the colony has seen for many a long day. When 0--i« lost- mail lnffc. (hn flrvrmmort fiscal scheme had just been adoptedin the Assembly. Since then demonstrative meetings have been held in all parts of the country, both in support of the tariff and in opposition to it, the opponents of the mrpsnro rnnlciriK tlipmsfilves under the banner of free trade, and its supporters— by far the more numerous section of the colonists — following the standard of protection. The question has thus virtually resolved itself into a combat between free trade and protection, and I lie win- h us hern wiiped wiHi profit bit terness and acrimoniousness of discussion. Several great demonstrations have been made in Melbourne, The Free Trade League leading off -with a monster meeting in the Exhibition Building, at which their doctrines, though not carrying convic tion, were at all evonta listened to. The case wns far different, howev...

MR. JAMES MACARTHUR, OF CAMDEN PARK, NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 March 1865

MR. JAMES MACARTHUR, OF CAMDEN PARK, NEW SOUTH WALES. James Macarthur belongs to a family that will ever bo hold in honor by Australians. His father, John Macarthur, was the founder of the Australian wool trade, having been the first to introduce fino-woolled sheep into the colony. Sheep had been intro dnced from the time of earliest settlement, but solely for tho purpose of supplying the population with mutton. These shoep were mostly of a brood which was originally brought from Bengal, and the covering they wore was like hair rather than wool. la 1703, fivo years after the foundation of the oolony, 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 Bengalose 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 La tho course of time, and, by theorising on the fact, ho ...

NEW SOUTH 'WALES. Traces ov Leichhardt. — A correspondent of tho Queensland Guardian, on the Warroo, Mr Frode rick Bracker, sends the following communication : — ' Having read in your valuable paper the report of Mr Macmtyre's discovery of what that gentleman supposed to bo two of Mr Leichhardt's camping places, and of his having subsequently found two horses thought 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 his lost 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. Leichhardt's fate. When I was managing the com pany's station at Rosen thai, Dr. Leichhardt called to visit me, and left a number of his horses with me to be sold to the bes...

BRUTAL CHILD MURDER ON EMERALD HILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 March 1865

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 nit., on Emerald Hill. The particulars, as at first reported, were' as follows : — A man ?named Stacoy, late an engineer— it is said -on board the Alhambra — was living with a woman in A If red 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. Tues ?day morning Stacey's wife was locked up in consequence of some disturbance which she had ?been creating, and, in the evening, Stacey had a .quarrel with the other woman, who was living with him as his paramour. Stacey struck her in the face, and, on her remonstrating, he caught hold of her child — a 'little boy be tween two and three years old — and snatched it from the bed where it was lying.

MINING ENTERPRISE AT TARADALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 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, t...

HARSH CONDUCT OF A SQUATTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 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 ago an hotel waa 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 travellei's 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 excit...

ALARMING BUSH TIRES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 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 : —   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 duBt, which the gales from the north drifted violently into every cranny and crevice. 'What with dust and smoke, the hori zon was scarcely visible at all, and frequently it was entirely hidden, whilo the hot blasts and still ing duBt kept the streets clear of all but those per sons who were compelled to bo about town. At about four p.m. the wind veered round to the south- ', ward, and with a cooler air there came also slight showers of rain. About midday the thermometer ke...

'1 he allotments ore sot to be less than forty acres, nor more than six hundred and forty, and no person may purchase in any one year more than tbe latter nnantitv.

RECOVERY OF THE REV. MR GRACE FROM THE PAI MARIRES. The New Zealand Herald of the 20th March says:- [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 19 April 1865

RECOVERY OF THE REV. MR GRACE FROM THE PAI MAKIRES. The Ifew Zealand Herald of the 20th March says : — 'When the Revs. Messrs Volkner and Grace were taken on thoir landing from the schooner Eclipse, they were confined together for the night, their enptors consult ing which of tho two should bo first executed. Tho discussion ended iu tho choice of Mr Volkner as n victim. It has been stated that the life of Mr Volkner was taken as utu for that of To Apnrama, and when we find theso natives discussing which of two men they should kill, we are led to believe that this possibly may be tho case. It was evidently not from any ill-will borne towards Mr Volkner personally that he was sacrificed, else there would have been no discussion. It will bo remembered that at the fight at Muketu between the Arawas and tho rebel natives, on the 11th of Juno last (if we remember rightly), the loyal native chief Beckbam was killed. His -wife had taken tho body into a hut, and shortly afterwards some rebel...

THE OKITIKI RUSH. Tho intelligence from this rush is to the 20th March, and tho accounts are very conflicting. The Canterbury Press of tho 18th says : — ' News reached Christchurch overland from tho West Coast, yesterday, by a man who returned from the dig gings. Food was plentiful, all the steamers having got over the bar. Oats, however, aro reported at 20s a bushel, there being no natural horse-feed. The gold escort wa3 met on tho lower Teremakau, and expected to get to the Okitiki on Monday night. The men were much knocked up, and the commis sioner was of opinion that to retnrn by that route was impossible. Tho yield of gold is described as good, but tho difficulty in prospecting fresh country, owing to the density of the bush, was very great. Tho following extracts from a letter received on Wednesday, by a resident in Christchurch, from a friend who loft some time ago for the West Coast, have been handed to us for publication.

NEW ZEALAND. TRIAL OF CAPTAIN JARVEY FOR THE MURDER OF HIS WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 19 April 1865

NEW ZEALAND. TRIAL OF CAPTAIN JARVEY FOR THE MURDER OP HIS 'WIFE. The trial of Captain Jarvey for tho alleged poisoning of his wife will certainly form one of the causes celebres in the criminal annals of Otago. It nnnnnied the whole of seven davs, and resulted in the jury being discharged without arriving at a verdict, after having boon locked up for over forty hours. The case excited groat interest, arid was chiefly remarkable for the examination and cross examination of Dr. Macadam, which lasted three days, and for the unprovoked attack made upon him by his Honor Judge Chapman in summing up. It appears that the medical fraternity of Dnnedin were highly indig nant that the analysis of tho stomach, &c, of tho deceased Mrs Jarvey was entrusted to a gentleman resident out of tho colony, and Dr. Macadam, on his arrival, consequently found himself in a regular hornets' nest. It appears that, prior to tho trial, lie was experimenting upon somo animals with strychnine, and, whils...

MURDER OP THE REV. MR VOLKMER. The correspondent of the Sydney Morning Herald, writing from Auckland on tho 21st ult, gives tho following information : — The horrible circumstances accompanyincr tho murder of the Rev. Mr Volkner are now ascertained to have been in no respect exaggerated by tho natives from whoso report it was taken. The account of the survivors is, if possible, more harrowing in. its horrible detail tlmu the former story. One thing is satisfactory, however, which is, that Mr Grace was allowed, although in constant expectation of his own death, to bury his late companion's body. The head had been preserved, and was being used in the way they seem to patroniso for delivering lectures on the Pni Mariro faith ; of course, effected by clever ventriloquism, in which the Maori Tohungas havo at all times been noted as adepts. Tho escape of Mr Grace was a romarkublo and providential one, being entirely attributable) to the absence of the mass of tho fanatics at a meeting som...
