THE WAY TO ENJOY HEALTH IN THE COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 23 July 1859
STHE PWAY TO. ENJOY.HEALTH IN - THE COLONIES. .. (rnokT MO1LETON DAY counaen.) In this country, with all the aid which medical science and sanitary 'regulations can, bring to bear on the question, there exists a very large propor tion of deaths, which arise from causes that might -be removed; and there is no reason to suppose that the rate of mortality in the young communi 'ties of. Australia, due to preventable causes, is less than in this country. On the contrary, looking to the habits of the people, the rapidity with which .wealth is.in:many cases acquired, and the readi-.. nsess.with which it is squandered, it would not'be matter of surprise if it were shown that to, the" ,neglect of proper sanitary regulations, 'of sufficient, care in the adaptation of diet and clothing! to: the' :changes and -vicissitudes of the. climate; a very. large share of the colonial mortality is duie. . 'Veiy recently the necessity of some -change in. the habits of the colonists has been pressed on the...

While the Treasurer congratulated himself on nhs success he ha'd" niet with, he also informed the meeting that, had all the new...

LOOK OUT FOR YOUR CLOTHE-SLINES! TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA EXAMINER. Sir,--I consider it a service to the public, more &nbsp; especially in and about this little township, to warn all who are in the habit of leaving clothes out at night, as there are of late either a thief or thieves prowling about, and watching every chance- they can get to strip the clothds-lines of any, or every thing, on them. Hoping this will be a warning to all new-comers not to trust their property to the tender mercies of these pillering vagabonds, . I remain, yours, &c: WATCHMAN.

UNIVERSITY PRIZE POEM. "COOK, IEDITATING ON AJSTRALIA'S FUTURE." DBY W. H. YARRINGTSN. (Delivered at the University Commemoration, July 18th, 18590.) The stillness and the hush of evening lay O'er sleeping nature; and the quiet bay, : Clmly reposing, as in tranquil sleep, Stirred not, save as the swelling front the deep -Came stealing o'er it, just as gentle breath Lifts the soft bosom, that, in seemning death, By passions all untortured, quiet lies, Untorn by anguish, undisturbed by sighs. So slept the waters, o'er whose face a beam Of softest light, e'en as a living stream Of purest silver, lay ; and from her throne Amid the floating clouds, in beauty shone The quiet moon :-a mild and holy calm Hunig o'r the scene : and, like an incense-charm, SThe fragrinice that from woodland flow'rets swept - Flow'reots that with the dews of evening wept Came o'er the waters with the gentle air, Then, rose to Heaven, like a hallowed prayer. Resting upon the water's surhico lay Two noble ships, ...

': ATURDAY, JULY 30, 1859.> . IS T'HERE CAUSE FOR ALAARM,? W. e r all' familiar with the old adage, that, when.our neighbor's house isoon fire it is quite as well that we should look to our own. The great armies'now drawn up on the plains of Italy-an •old and renowned battle field-have set diploma tists of all nations at work to reflect upon the ultimate issue of the cannous arbitrament. Upon, ,'surface, the plausible reasons assigned by NrPo FLEON, TIE TnIRD, of building up an Italian :power which cannot be torn asunder by the out-. break of internal revolution, or the aggression of foreign despotism, go far to lull into security the fears and suspicions of many. On'the other hand, the ?vil known attempts of the French Emperor to raise' himself from the platform of a popular Sassembly to an Imperial Throne by a successful ; coup d'etat, have convinced the more reflective that'his individual policy foi the purposes of self aggrandisement is not hemmed in by candor, faith, or scru...
