TO THE GOLDiTELDS AND BACK. [Bronx Special Bepreaentative.] No. I.— THEOUSH THE NOBTH-HA8T. 'Gold, gold, gold, Heavy to get ana light to hold.' Since the world-famous day in February, 1851, when Hargreave's startling discovery of the yellow dross at Bathurst woke the plodding colonists of that time to the astounding fact that they had been walking on untold wealth for years, and turned the easy-going graziers and. shepherds into an eager bustling throng of dirt-stained gold grubbers, no word has had such an elec trical effect on all classes of the community as the short word ' gold.' Staid sober-sided - men feel a thrill of excitement at the very whisper of the discovery of the royal metal, - while to the mind of adventurous youth the - picture of another Bendigo or Billarat, where a ragged tamper might become a millionaire by the stroke of a' pick or turn - of a spade, is at once conjured up, and no privation, hardship, or danger, is deemed too - great that will enable one to try- ...

No. II—THE BARRIERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881
Ko. H.— THE BABBIEBS. Thacksringa is not an imposing city. As a matter .of fact it consists ©f a public house and a couple of tanks or dams. Be it understood that tank in the North usually means a great hole scooped out of the clayey soil by means of ploughs and scoops. We found it a very lively place, however, for when we arrived there were not -less than ten or a dozen teams of all descriptions camped round the water. Things began to look like ' off to the diggings' in earnest; and at night the white, tilted waggons and drays, with the numerous camp-fires throwing a warm red glow on the figures of swarthy, bearded men, and feeding horses, were really picturesque, while the sounds of concer tinas, penny whistles, and beaten tin pans, mingled with snatches of song and snouts of laughter, with ever and anon in the pauses the tinkle of a horse bell, or weird cry of curlew or plover, were highly suggestive of old diggings days, and jolly camps amongst the stringy barks and messmates of...

CANADA AS A FIELD FOR AGRICULTURAL SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881
CANADA AS A FIELD FOR AGRI CULTURAL SETTLEMENT. Evee since Australia was thought of as offering attractions to Englishmen desirous of establishing for themselves a home in a new land, America has been the one formid able rival in the emigration department — we will not say market — for to those who from their own memories look back upon the buried past, that expression might re mind them of slavery in the United States and convictism at Botany Bay and at that more horrible abode of crime and misery, Port Macarthur. We have changed all that long since ; no convicted felon from Europe has been transported to Australian shores for the last thirty years to serve his sentence in this part of the world, if we except the little colony of Western Australia; and owing to the vigorous remonstrances of the eastern provinces transportation to that portion of the continent ceased fifteenyears ago. All these colonies have long since shaken off the stigma of convictism, and have invited the enterp...

Mr. Wm. Lewis, J.P., acted as coroner, and Mr. Henry B. Hayman was fore- man of the jury. William Bradley, shoemaker, of Stirling East, said — After dinner yesterday I went into the gully. Turning off the bank I saw a man lying down. Put my hand on his shoulder and then called to my man, saying I thought there was a man lying dead, as he did not move. The man came down. We lifted up deceased's head, and on seeing his face recognised him as Charley. Then telegraphed to the police. I do not know his other name. By the jury — There was no water in tbe gully. He looked as if he had been struggling. &nbsp; Adolphus George Ross said — I saw deceased on the main road yesterday mo...
