TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 19 January 1864
TO TIlE EDITOR OF TIlE KIAMA INDEPENDENT.. Sin,-Considering the state of our roads,. which everybody has great occasion.to con aider, I cannotbut think thatwo have great reason to be dissatisfied and disgusted at the conduct of our Municipal Council in re ference to the position in which they are placed. Ihave satisfactory ground for be lieving that the late Minister for Lands did once, if not more than once, express his readiness to take charge of the roads, and to expend on them the amount to which they were entitled according to their clas sification, on condition that the Municipal Council formally resigned the charge of them into his hands. I believe the Council knew this, and the public might be in terested to know why they did not avail themselves of the chance. I am no lawyer, aid do not know what particular course they ougi o have taken, that is, as a matter o 'In; but the Mayor being a lawvyeri, tpiould think, would know all about thi -Pclrhaps the consent of all the alder...
HORRIBLE MURDER IN IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 19 January 1864
IHORRIBLE , MURDER, IN IRELAND. A murder, the details of which are almost too horrible to be credited, is re ported from Ireland. In a desolate dis trict in the county of Waterford, about three miles from a place called Ballyma carbry and twelve from lonmnel, lived an aged man named Thomas Conolly, in a wretchqd cabin, to which was attached an acre of boggy land. There is another cabin close by, and below is a slated house belonging to a farmer named Flyn. With the old man lived his grandson, Pat Heia. nessy, who married the daughter of a man named Walshie. Old Conolly had received £9 from Walshe for letting him ,nd his wife live in the house, but the two families were constantly quarrelling. The cabin contains two rooms, a kitchen, andi a bedroom. To the kitchen the light swas admitted only through a small door; the bedroom was lighted by a bit of glass four inches square, stuck in plaster. Young IHennessy went away to look for harvest work. When lie returned to the cabin lie found...

TO ITHE EDITOR OF THlE KI.MAIA INDIEPENDETT. SIn,--in your Shoalhaven correspondence of the 12th instant, I observe an error re garding the amnonunt of money which I amd 0aid( to have reported to the police that the Chinaman A.

RETURN OF CRIMINAL STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 19 January 1864
IEIkTURN OF CRIMINAL STATIS TICS. (From the Herald.) A RETURN of criminal statistics has re cently been publishcd as a Parliamentary Paper, on the motion of Mr. Deas Thom son. As there has been so much dis puting as to the accuracy of statements made about the amount of crime, a for mal official document, prepared expressly to put the facts beyond cavil, is valuable for the purposes of reference. A preliminary memorandum, by the Inspector of Police, states that several offences are often registered separately though they all are the acts of one man, and that in respect of convictions, when a criminal is convicted of one charge the others are not pressed. Some alleged robberies too have been found to be fabrications, and others are suspected of being such. In drawing conclusions front the figures, it is neces sary to bear these points in mind. The return commences at the 1st of January, 1862, and was moved for on the 30th July, 1863, and would seem, there fore, to cover the eighteen ...

A VALUABLE HI-NT F011 FARMERS. The celebrated MIr. Robert Bakewell of Dishly, Leicestershire, and the founder of the now Leicestershire sheep, used to tell an anecdote, with exceding high glee, of ai farmer not only of the olden school, but 6f the olden times. This firmer, who owned and occupied 1000 acres of land, had three daughters. Wtihen his eldest daughter mar ried, he gave her one quarter of his land for her portion, but no money; and he found, by a little more speed and it little better management. the produce of his farm did not decreaslse. Wtrhen his second daugh tcr married, he gave her one-third of the remaining laund for her portion, but no money. He then set to work, and began to grub up his flirze and fern, and iploughed uip what lie called his poor dry furze land, even when the fiurze covered in some cases nearly talu the lindt. After giving half his land to his daughters, to his great surprise he found thait the product increasedl; lie ade lmore nlonely becacse, his...

JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 19 January 1864
JAPAN. The accounts of the bombardment of Jfagasima are now completo. The British lost thirteen killed and lifty wounded. The -Euryalus, which led the line, lost her cap tain and conmmander, and her total casual ties were ten killed and twenty-one wounded. She was hulled ten times, and her masts and rigging out to pieces. The vessels engaged were the Euryalus, Pearl, Argus, lPerseus, Coquetto, la?avoc, and RIacehorse. The first two were only fri gates. The Japanese aiimmunition appears to have belen of a superior quality. The forts mounlted ninety-three guns and mortars. The ships were d50 yards from the fort. It is God's mercy, say the daily press, that the whole fllet were not sunk. Satsuma had the best 'United States guns and ammunition. His batteries were armecd with 1:3-inch and 8-inch shell guns, forty 150 pounlders, ten 80 pounders, and of the remainder nlono were of less calibre thalu 32 pounders. ,\We suppose the wind audrain, and determined attack at close quarters caused ...

VICTORIA. iBy the City of Melbourne steamer we have one day's later papers. The Argus of 4th instant says :-A-n ex traordinary occurrence took Iplace in Queen street, near the Provident Institute, at twenty minutes past two o'clock yesterday mornine. 4At that hour some of those sleep ing in tll neighborhoodwere awakened by a sudden crash, such as might be made by the fall of a house, and ou rushing out to ascertain what had happened it was found that a great portion of the building known as the Htotel de France had come suddenly to the ground, the outer wall luning tidless into the street, and the sleepers on the upper floor having been suddenly thrown beds and all-into the road. The house is a double one, the lower parts of the south ern division forming the bar, and the north ern half the restauranst. It has been kept for some years past by Monsieur ]De BCeau -a rcenlcuntan, who, unfortunately sus tained a serious loss lately, the floods ha' ing overwhlelened and destroyed a littl...
THE COLENSO CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 19 January 1864
THE COLENSO CASE. (Fsrom the Grahamstoewn Journal, Dec. 1). The case of the Bishop of Natal, so far as tlhe arguments in'favour of the accusa tion are concerned, has been fully heard. The defence was no defence. That is to say, written and printed matter put in on behalf of the defendant cannot be looked upon as a reply to the elaborate pleadings of Dean Douglas and Archdeacois hMerri man and Badnall. In reality, one side of the question, and that alone, has been heard. This, however, is not the fault of the Court. Bishop Colenso chose not to be present, t'nd before hoe made his choice he muust have fully understood what would be its effects. The reply of the clergy preferring the charges to the docu ments read in defence was made on Saturday, the 21st. Dean Douglas was the principal, indeed, it may be said, he was the only speaker. Iec took up one by one the points urged by Dr. Colenso in the letter published in to-d:y's co lumns. The argument is a thoroughly professional or theolo...
MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 19 January 1864
MISCELLANEOUS. A CURIOUs racT has been established in some of the conununes in France. It has been found that the use of threshing and winnowing machines has produced an im mense amount of bronchitis and disease of the throat and chest among the laborers employed, who are exposed to an atmos phere charged with dust, which affects them so powerfully that in some parishes there are whole families of confirmedl invalids. To such an extent has this evil gone, that tllb mayors have issued an order that laborers employed near this machinery must work in veils.
