The First Christmas Day in Australia [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 December 1926

The First Christmas Day in Australia BY CAPTAIN J. H. WATSON, PRESIDENT ROYAL AUSTRALIAN HISTORICAL SOCIETY. "Christmas Day was observed with pro per ceremony, Mr. Johnson preached a sermon adapted to the occasion, and the major part of the officers of the settle- ment were afterwards entertained at din- ner by the Governor.-25th December, 1788. So wrote Captain David Collins, of the Marines, Judge Advocate of the territory called New S'outh Wales, Governor Phillip's secretary, and author of An Account of the English Colony in New South Wales. Reading Collins' words and interpreting them by present-day conditions, we would come to the conclusion that a beautiful, bright, Christmas service was held in a church suit- ably decorated, and the officials dined at Gov- ernment House, amidst the usual vice-regal surroundings. Now let us look at where Christmas Day was being observed. The place had no name, but was known as "The Camp," or "The Settle- ment," and was confined to an area bound...

Greetings [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 December 1926

Greetings This issue arrives , when the spirit of Christmas is abroad. On all sides one hears plans for holidays, visits to the old folk and comparisons with other festive seasons.

HEAVY WEIGHT CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 December 1926

HEAVY WEIGHT CATTLE. A deal of controversy has taken place about the heaviest beast bred in the Federal District of Monaro. Without doubt the honour goes to Duntroon. Before it became Federal Ter- ritory, and where the Royal Military College now stands, was Duntroon homestead, con- nected with the Duntroon Estate. Splendid cattle, sheep, and horses were bred on the Duntroon plains and mountains. When Mr. J. T. Tully was manager of Duntroon, a bul- lock was sent to market, the weight of which alive was 28 cwt. 29 lbs. When killed and dressed, the weight was l8 cwt. 5@ lbs.-a re- cord for the Monaro district. Do you wish to encourage the publication of The Pioneer Magazine? Well, tell your friends to get it.

In the Tracks of the Explorers Old Western Road Relics [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 December 1926

In the Tracks of the Explorers Old Western Road Relics BY FRANK WALKER, F.R.A.H.S. A large party of members of the Royal Australian Historical Society paid a visit to Woodford and Linden lately to see for them- selves some of the interesting relics of other days, which are to be found in those localities. These two places are very closely associated with Blaxland's journey across the Blue Moun- tains in 1813, and here and there are still to be found traces of the old road constructed by William Cox, which followed very closely in the explorer's tracks. On arrival at Wood- ford, the first object of interest inspected was old Woodford House, now an academy for boys, which has had a most interesting history. Originally a military station, erected in the late twenties, after the withdrawal of the forces from the then colony, it became an hotel, known ail over the district as "Buss' Hotel." In the gold days it did a thriving trade, as all trafile to and from the west passed its doors. Th...

AUSTRALIA'S GREATEST EXPLORER AND HIS WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 December 1926

AUSTRALIA'S GREATEST EXPLORER AND HIS WORK. By E. Waterman. The name of Captain Charles Sturt is one which will live for ever in the glorious list of heroic and daring Australian explorers. Sturt wrote that he undertook his series of toilsome explorations from "a wish to contribute to the public good." The spirit of his work was en- tirely in accord with this fine profession of true patriotism. Sturt came to New South Wales with his regiment, the 39th Dorsets, and at once be- came fascinated by the baffling mystery ot the problem of the rivers. Whence came the rivers which Oxley had navigated, and whicti Hume and Hovell had crossed? Whither did they go? Many speculated that their waters flowed into a vast inland sea. If that were true, where was that sea? For the three years prior to 1828 Australia had been afflicted by a severe drought. It was Urgent therefore, if watered areas existed in the interior, that they be found. For crops failed and stock died for lack of grass and water....

Honouring Pioneer Explorers [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 December 1926

Honouring Pioneer Explorers Readers of The Pioneer who have followed Mr. Henry Selkirk's excellent articles on "Early Canberra" will recall mention of Miss E. S. Moore and her sister of Caulfield, Vic- toria, the only living descendants of Lieut. J. J. Moore, the first settler at Canberra, who was their grandfather. Showing their con- tinued interest in Canberra, the Misses Moore donated two guineas towards a prize for the best essay by a senior class boy and senior class girl at Telopia Park School on "Who Was the Greatest Australian Explorer?" A number of scholars competed, and the editor was. asked to adjudicate. The prize essayists were : Master E. Waterman: 1st , boys. Miss Edna Williams: 1st, girls. The pupils showed a wide range of know- ledge, and Sturt was the ideal of the majority. Miss Williams has made a fine attempt in deal- ing with explorer Eyre. We publish the win-t ning essays to encourage the young in their studies of the early pioneers, and to stimulate literary e...
