NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 May 1865

NEW SOUTH WALES. Recovery: op the ? Backhouses Zknobia and 'Kildare.— The -; extraordinary 'seizure ef' theso; horses by Mrs Dickson, and some persons unknown,' has caused much' excitement amongst sporting men, and their recovery, on Saturday, was effected under very peculiar cironnostances. It appears that, notwithstanding a strict search, was made by the police and other parties interested, all Friday and part of Saturday, no clue could' be discovered ns to the whereabouts. of tho horaos. , The. offer ,of £20 reward, however, caused a .tailor, named- Ouster, to give information which led to their, recovery. The horses, after having been seized by, ATrs Dickson : and party were taken to a; stable, let by, a cabman.' named Cunningham, at the back. ?'. of Mr. Hilly's -house, Potts' Point ; and Mr Yeoman's having got upon the right :; track, ^imme diately proceeded there,' and with' the assistance of the services of Sergeants ?

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

THE MONTH. . The Peninsular and Oriental Company's steam ship Northam, with the European mails to the 27th of March, arrived on the 14th inBt. The Northam sailed from Galle punctually to time, but severe ??weather, and some mishaps, made her passage un usually long. Recent irregularities have not im proved the public temper, or modified the general desire, for a reform of oar postal communication -with the mother country. The past month, if uneventful, has been signifi cant of our progress and prosperity. The first session of the new Parliament, which has already given substantial proof . of being a working one, is bow drawing rapidly to a close, and honorable gentleman, who have labored so hard for their Country's good, will probably be free to attend to thair own affairs, each in his own locality, in about a fortnight. The substantial character of the session's legislation was illustrated on the 9th inst., when his Excellency the Governor signified the royal assent to another bato...

Mr President and Gentlemen,— -As I promised two months ago to read a paper on the above eubr ject, I wiil endeavor to be brief for two reasons., The first is that I have not had sufficient time at my disposal, and the second is a feeling of inability to do adequate justice to so large a subject. I' have had opportunities of noticing and . studying the fruit markets of Melbourne for the. last two years, and have often remarked the small quantity of fine fruit and the quantities of rubbish with which the market is now inundated, and. have wondered . that the energy and intelligence possessed by' the market gardeners is not turned to better account in working or procuring the best, arid only the best, varieties. This is easily' accounted for in the case of...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 May 1865

A Bushhanging Story. — Keeping bad company has from time immemorial been productive of unfor tunate consequences ; but from what happened to a' man in Victoria the other' 'day it was shown that even the suspicion of having kept bad company leads to an unhappy termination. Rather late on. Monday night a traveller on horseback was leisurely proceeding along the Englohawk road towards Sandhurst; where he intended resting for the night. Overtaking a couple of men — Irishmen by the way — : the horseman, with the colonial freedom in the in terchange of courtesy, saluted them nnd entered into conversation. -In the course of their chat the tra veller informed the two men that he was from New South Wales, when, naturally,' the conversation re verted to- bushrangers. The traveller naively re marked that he- had often been in company with Ben. Hall ? and 'Gilbert,'.- whom ho familiarly indicated as ?' Johnny,' and other knights of tho road in that part of the colony. Tlie two men .took the ? a...

THE NEW ZEALAND—LATE BLOCKADE RUNNER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 May 1865

THE NEW ZEALAND— LATE BLOCKADE RUNNER. The mere fact that a small steamer has, on no less than seven distinct occasions, successfully run the blockade of Wilmington, is sufficient to invest her with no common interest in any portion of the civilised globfe. How deperately hazardous such an enterprise is .probably none but those who havo ex perienced it can form a fully adequate idea. It means 'nothing .more or less than a little steamer, totally destitute of all means of defence, nnd so slightly con structed that a single shot from tho coinmonoat piece of ordnance is capable of utterly destroying her; run ning the gauntlet of tlie armed navy of one of the greatest maritime powers in tho universe. In..the;i pitch gloom of a dark night, or the fog or mist of a favoring, day, a little craft of this description, trusting mainly to hor spead, steers blindly in amongst a fleet of hostile cruisers, hor crow well knowing that a sud den break, in tho haze, or the casual explosion of a single...

THE POISON PLANT OF NORTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 May 1865

THE POISON PLANT OF NORTH AUS- . TRALIA. The accompanying drawing of the gastrolobium or poison plant of the north, of which we have recently heard so much, will, no doubt, be of equal interest to the'botanist and the owner of stock. We are indebted to our distinguished savant, Dr. Mueller, for the follow ing scientific notice. of the plant. The genus gas trolobium comprises several species of s6 strongly poisonous properties as to be the bane of many Of the pastures. of South-West Australia, where these' pretty and irmocent-looking bushes prevent actually the occupation of many tracts of country, for herds and especially flocks. It was, however, unknown, that any species of this genus occurred also in other parts of Australia, until the indomi table . explorer, T. M'Douall Stuart, discovered 'a, tropical species at Attack Creek, in the rear of Arnheim's Land. This, since described as gastrolo bium, grandiflorum (in Dr. Mueller's fragmenta phytographial Australiae vol. HI, page 17),...

DARING ESCAPE AND RE-CAPTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 May 1865

DARING ESCAPE AND RE-CAPTURE. , The inhabitants of Maryborough were disturbed in the course of their usual business avocations, on Wednesday afternoon, at about half-past two odoak, by a violent ringing of the gaol bell, followed by a rush of several policemen towards the scene of com motion. On making inquiries as to the cause .of the uproar, wo learned that a prisoner, named John Son, who was committed for trial at the .Majorca police court, on the 24th February last, on the ?£w«™ of hnrelarv and an attempt to murder Dr. Sout&hee7on whose premises the burglary was com mitted, had made his escape by scaling the outer wall of the gaol. The first alarm was given by the rh,Kin' of the bell, and Mr Sbegog, the senior turn ?S who was engaged in hi, garden, caught sight of the absconder as ho was making off, and, sus pecting something different from the ordinary ^course of events, made after him on ^ot-^ Mr Chftord at this moment came up, and, with Mr Hutcbinson, warder Gaynor, a...

? — — ? ? 1^— ?— ? ? ~~~ THE SAILORS' HOME. ???-?? It is- much-to-be regretted that the appeals made from time to time to the public for some pecuniary assistance on bohalf of the above valuable institu tion have as yet failed to awaken any adequate con sciousness, on the part of the community to the importance of the objects which it is the desire ot the founders of the establishment, to accomplish. Those objects, are the moral elovation^and, protection against wholesale robbery of one of the. most useful ? and hard-working, and, certainly, the most neglected, S of sooiety, and should, therefore, commend themselves to every friend of social progress ; and, in a still more urgent manner, as involving their personal monetary interests, to the members ofthe commercial section of the public.

THE ESSENDON RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 May 1865

THE ESSENDON RAILWAY. The correspondence relating to tho prop^^d: .. parohase of the Eaaendon Railway by tho Govern- ' ment, together with ' the reports of the engineer- in chief as to the state and value of the line, has been printed, with a view to its being placed on the table of the Legislative Assembly. The correspondence it somewhat lengthy, and shows that several propo sals have been made to the i Government by tho. company,' with a view to the purchase of the lino by the former, and that eventually the' parties hare come to something like an understanding on tho subject. The first proposition mad e by the oompany to the - Government appears to have been one con tained in a letter, dated 23rd January, 1863, andis to tho effect that the company agreed to transfer the line of railway, together with the rolling stock, and other appliances connected with it, on the following conditions :— Fire t.ithat the price ? to be paid should be determined by two or more valuators to be ap p...

THE WILLIAMSTOWN GRAVING DOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 May 1865

THE 1 WIIiLIAMSTOWN GRAYntG DOCK. As the first contraof for the construction of the above-named important engineering work is now rapidly approaching completion, it- may not be out of place to give a brief sketch of the progress which has been made, and the results which ' still remain to be accomplished. We may, however, before doing so, be permitted to congratulate the colony upon the prospect now lying immediately before it of possessing asuitable place of repair, free from all chances of straining, for vessels- of any burthen likely to bo employed in the mercantile marine ior many years to come, a want which has been long felt by the mercantile community, and tho existence of which could not be regarded otherwise than as a reproach to one of the most important shipping ports of the world.'

THE BUSHRANGERS. ENCOUNTER WITH CAPTAIN THUNDERBOLT AND   HIS GANG. [FROM THE TAMWORTH EXAMINER, 29TH APRIL.] In our last issue we gave the particulars of the robbery of the Warialda mail, near Manilla, by this newly-fledged gang of bushrangers, and we now furnish an account of their proceedings since that time, supplied to us by our correspondents at Bar- raba, Narrabri, and Wee Waa. It would seem that on the night of the day on which the Warialda mail was stuck up, Thunderbolt alias Ward and his companions, went to a paddock on the station of the Messrs Lloyd, at Manilla, where there were a number of horses, and took two of the best. Proceeding onwards towards Barraba, we hear that two more horses were taken from there belonging to the Messrs Sinclair, they at the same time leaving there the horse they had taken from the postman when they stuck up the Warialda mail, and one they stole from Lloyd's station. On the morning of the following day, the 20th instant, they went to Mr Chee...

UNSEEMLY PROCEEDINGS AT A FUNERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 May 1865

UNSEEMLY PROCEEDINGS AT A FUNERAL. Yesterday afternoon, the mortal remains of the late Mr. Joseph Abbott were buried at the White Hills Cemetery. The funeral was attended by a considerable number of Sandhurst citizens, among whom the deceased, even at his advanced age, had many friends, by his simplicity of character, good heart and sound sense. We regret to say that the funeral was not allowed to take place in that quiet, grave and decorous manner befitting the occasion. Priestly intolerance and sectarian differences, which cause dissensions in the world, on this occasion chose the graveyard itself as the scene for exhibi- tion. It appeared that the grave in which the re- mains of deceased were to be interred was situated in the Church of England portion of the cemetery, by the side of the grave of his deceased wife. Mr J. H. Abbott, their son, had purchased this   portion of ground at the death of his mother, as a family burying place. The deceased belonged to the Bap...
