AN ACCOMPLISHED SOMNAMBULIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 29 April 1865
^ACCOMPLISHED SOMNAMBULIST. A curious circumstance has been related by a highly beneficed member of the Roman Catholic Church. In the college where he was educated was a young seminarist who habitually .walked in his sleepy: and while in a state of somnambulism used to sit down to his desk compose the most eloquent sermons, scrupulously erasing, effacing, or interlining whenever an incorrect expresion had fallen from his pen. Though his eyes T»rere apparentlyfixed upon the paper when he wrote, it was clear tha$; they exercised no optical functions; for he wrote just as well when. an opaque substance was interposed between them and the sheet of paper. Some times an attempt was made to remove the jpaper-ih |he idea, dipt he would write upon the desk, beneath, but it. was observed that he instantly discerned the-change, and sought • another sheet of , paper, as nearly as posable ■ resembling the 'former -one. At other times a ,.blank €he^t^ \$i:.paper -^^ subsdtuted by i the' bystander...
MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 29 April 1865
MISCELLANEOUS. A question has lately arisen whether any body ever lived to be 100 years .old- A case is mentioned by the French ps^jers of .the recent decease of a lady at 106 years and three months, and as she was a person of rank and fortune, the notoriety of her age .in her family may be deemedvery, considerable evidence. Her name was •; Madame > Scholas tique—Jeanne Prieuze, endow - of M- Goujop, and married a second tune ,to Count; Prieurre de Saint Qiuentin. She died lately at Ver sailles; the day of her death isjnot mentioned. Her son, M. &lt;xou]on, who lived to a good old age, was a pupil of the Polytechnic School,a receiver of taxes, and the author pf gooiiQ comedies called Ze Cercle and Les Philosophes. \ It is related that at the pge of S3hewent-$o | Versailles to pay a visit to tyis mother, and being infirm was helped out of his carriage by two officers of the garrison, to whom |t$ said, UI wiH tell mamma that I have met with two extremely polite officers."

"BOUNTY JUMPING" IN THE FEDERAL STATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 29 April 1865
"BOUNTY JUMPING" IN THE FEDE RAL STATES. The Albany Journal of the 3rd Jan. says:— " Several squads of bounty jumpers recently passed through this city on their way West to 4 operate.' The first squad took the train a week ago, and were mostly Albany thieves, who knew it would be useless for them to present themselves here as recruits. The second squad were nearly all from New York, and came to thiscityto enlist, under the impres sion that our Marshal would be green enough to accept them. But of the whole number who offered themselves only three were received. The rest sought other localities, and selected Oneida country as their first field of operations. The next squad who wended their way eastward were all from New York, and numbered over a hundred. They were chiefly labelled for Utica, Water town, and Binghamton. Of the first squad most of them enlisted in Utica, and nine of them jumped before they reached the rendez vous in this city. Of the second squad, all enlisted in Utica ...
A WIFE SOLD IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 3 May 1865
A WIFE SOLD IN ENGLAN©. The sale of a wife has actually taken place in England, though not at the traditional Smithfield, and with a halter round her neck. The vendor, it is stated, was a Mr Samuel Jones, of Wolverhampton. The purchaser was an American gentleman, and the price was £150. This, however, included three children, so that one is still at a loss lor a standard by which to estimate the market value of a wife. Whether the children were considered in the transaction as valuable pieces of property, or encumbrances, is a question upon which no light has been thrown. But the most singular part of the affair is the conduct of the vendor. After the sale had been completed and the goods handed overr the lady complicated matters by retnrning to the gentleman who had disposed of her, and the unfortunate speculator was compelled to offer an additional £50 in order to recover his purchase. The transaction seems to have been managed with mutual caution, if not suspicion. It was settled...
THE ROUPELL CASE [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 3 May 1865
THE ROUPELL CASE The last act of the drama in which William Roupell, the late M.P., performed so promi nent a part, will he played out, if such a term pan be rightly applied to a transaction of this description, at the ensuing assizes for the country of Essex. As all the facts have been so frequently alluded to, it will only be necessary to give a brief narrative of some of the principal circumstances of this most extra ordinary case, in order that the public may know what is intended to be done when the matter comes , before the court. It will be remembered that in the first instance, Mr Richard Roupell, the heir-at-law of old Rou peli, brought an action in that capacity at the Guildford assizes in 1862, to recover possession of an estate worth about: £15,000, at Kingston, in Surrey, on the ground that William Rou pell, who claimed the property, with every thing else that his father was possessed of under his will, and who had disposed of it. hadno right to do so, as the will under...
GREAT FIRE IN PHILADELPHIA. STREETS ABTAZE WITH BURNING OIL—SERIOUS LOSS OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 3 May 1865
GREAT FIRE W PHILADELPHIA. STREETS ABTAZB WITH BURNING OIL—SERIOUS LOSS OF LIFE. Philadelphia, Feb. 8.—A large fire com menced about 3 o'clock this morning,, in the Goal Oil Works on Ninth and Federal Streets. About 50 dwellings, mostly three storeys, have been consumed, occupying two squares on both sides of Ninth Street, beside? a few on Federal and Wharnton Streets. Several lives are reported lost. The streets were at the time flooded with snow, water,* and oil. Hie oil ran along the streets in full blaze, setting fire to the lower portions of dwellings, and preventing the escape of the inmates. Four children are said to have perished in one house. The fire originated in Blackburn and Co.'s sheds for storing refined oil in bond. Two thousand barrels have been destroyed. It was insured mostly in New York. Of the origin of the fire hut little is known i beyond the fact that it broke out about half past two o'clock yesterday morning, m an open lot on Washington and UTinth Street, wh...
EXTRAORDINARY CASE OF CONCEALMENT OF BIRTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 3 May 1865
EXTRAORDINARY CASE OF CON- | CEALMENT OF BIRTH. j At the Marylebone Court, London, on] Saturday, February 12, Susan Anne Medbury, a governess, was charged with unlawfully disposing of the dead body of a child by placing it in a box; and further charged with concealment of birth. Wm. Beanham, re freshment house keeper, of 26 London Street, Paddington, said about the middle of October last the prisoner came to his house, bringing with her three boxes sewn up in canvas. Shortly after she had taken up her abode she opened one of her boxes, and everything, appeared to go on well as regarded her. On the 21st of December she left, without either giving notice or taking away her boxes. One ; of them was broken open, and found to con- j tain a quantity of foul linen and rags ; the other box remained unopened till Friday last, when he called in a locksmith, and discovered upon breaking it open the dead body of a female child, which was conveyed to the station house. Police-constable 62 D stat...
THE EFFECT OF MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 3 May 1865
THE EFFECT OF MARRIAGE. Doubtless you have remarked with satisfac tion how the little oddities of men who marry rather late in life are pruned away after mar riage. You have found a man who used to be shabbily and carelessly dressed, with huge shirt-collar frayed at the edges, and a glaring yellow silk pocket-handkerchief, broken of these, and became a pattern of neatness. You have seen a man whose hair and whiskers were ridiculously cut, speedily become like other human beings. You have seen a clergyman who wore a long beard in a little while appear without one. You have seen a man who used to sing ridiculous sentimental songs leave them of. You have seen a man who took snuff copiously, abandon the vile habit. A wife is the grand wielder of the moral pruning-knife. If Johnson's wife had lived, there would have been no hoarding up of bits of orange peel; no eating and drinking with a disgusting voracity. If Oliver Gold smith had been married, he would never have worn that memorable ...
STRIKE AGAINST AN ARCHITECT, MANCHESTER. (From The Builder, Jan. 28) [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 3 May 1865
STRIKE AGAINST AN ARCHITECT, MANCHESTER. (From The Builder. Jan. 28) I A strike occurred some months ago, and stall continues, against Mr Bramall, the con tractor for the Assize Courts and the new gaol in Manchester. The strike related exclusively to the management of the works. Mr Bramall employed as foreman a man named Kettle, in whom he trusted; and Kettle, who had been a master, put at the head of the bricklayers' labourers a man who had already served him in the same capacity. This arrangement was resisted by the men. They alleged that, by custom of the trade, the first labourer who offered him self for a job was entitled to be the head man ofjihegang. There was. no written rule to this effect, but it was a custom. It is not disputed that the master has the power, by dismissing all the men above any man whom he may prefer, to place him at the .fiead of the gang, and take on the rest at the tail, so that the utility of the rule is not very apparent. However, Kettle had broken it...

GUNPOWDER. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WALLAROO TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 3 May 1865
GUNPOWDER. TO THE EDITOfi OP THE WA1LASOO TIME8. r Sir,—Allow me, through the medium of your paper, to protest against the present arrangements for landing gunpowder. Thfe. L'ord Nelson, barque, arrived here on the 24th instant, with 400 qr-barrels of gunpowder aboard. This was transferred to the- hulk Rebecca, and at present is being landed at the rate of one ton per day. The hulk is moored within a cable's length of the jetty. The powder is landed on a spot frequented by bathers and, fishermen. Accidents are of daily occurrence, the origin of which for ever remains a mystery, such for instance as the burning of H.M.S. Bombay, the particu lars of which reached us by the last mail. no other provision can be made for the pre vention of an accident, surely .the Marine Board can alter the place of landing to south of the jetty—say at Snug Cove, near Point Hughes. The lives and property of the people of Port Adelaide are protected by vessels being compelled to land their powder before c...

WATER SUPPLY. TO THE EDITOB OP THE WAXiLAEOO TIMES. Sib,—Now that Mr Rogers. has come amongst us to examine and report to the Government the best means of supplying (by preserving in tanks or otherwise) fresh wafer for the various townships, would it nptlbe wise on the part of the inhabitants to consult together ?—and as it is said there is wisdom in a nutnber of councillors, let them deliberate and report to the proper quarter.: ; |5y adopting this course, it might be the means of guiding the Government and» enabling thefn to adopt the most useful means for effectually carrying out the object in view It would be a great, pity, after having waited so long for Government to adopt some means to preserve water for the district^ not to bestir ourselves now an' opportunity offerp. It may be some time before we have such another chance, and should we neglect our duty now, it may cause us long repentance.— Yours, &c., - caustic: May 2,1865.
