THE COURT-MARTIAL UPON COLONEL CRAWLEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 16 February 1864
THE COURT-IIAItTIAL UPON OOLON EL tfRAWLEY. (From thde Times of November 16, 1863.) At Aldersfot to-morrow tile court martial willat length be entered upon which, frois circumstances of various kinds, hasohssumed an importance little inferior td that of a State trial. There are few who are not familiar, by name at least, with the case of Paymaster Smnales and witfl thle melancholy death of Ser geant-Major Lilley; but as the regiment which acquired so unenviable a notoriety in connection with these officers has been abroad some time, and as there must evi dently be a wide gap between the depar tune fromn this country of the 6th Ennis killen Dragoons, then, in thie words of his Rloyal Highness, the Commander - in Chief, "all that could be desired as to esprit de corps, unanlimity, and goIt feeling among the officers, and as to geill and discipline among the men," anis the return to Engl:md pof one-fourthlof the same corps to give evilnce for gr against tbheir Colonel,, aho im arraighe...
THE STATE CHURCH IN IRELAND. (Letter to the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 16 February 1864
THE STATE C0-URICH HN IRELAND. ' (Letter to the Times.) Sir,--In a recent article in the Times you seem to invite all persons interested in the question of thie Irish--or more accurately speakjng, the anti-Irish-State Church, to express their opiniols on the subject. It is, therefore, thalt I venture to address to you the notions of an Irish Catholic, which, possibly, may exhibit to your readers at least one reason -why the State Church has failed to fulfil the chla racter assigned to itby its advocates, of a "missionary Church." In the article to which I refer you say, with perfect truth,-" The money ques tion is bad enough, but the political problem is the teal trouble of statesmen. These iliternalp.uobmalies are mere symp toms of a radical vice. The Irish Pro testant Chiu'rch is ifself the great original anomaly." You have done well thus to hit the nail on the head. The great mass of the Irish people do not care one straw how the ecclesiastical revenues are distributed among the ...
FEBRUARY 10. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 16 February 1864
Fenauxnv 10. The Chalirman of Committees bhaving tnaken the chair in the absence of the Speakler through illness, dIr. Wilson moved a resolution to the fclfect that it was desi rable to dispose of the flock of alpacas pur clhased by the Govcrnment in 1859. Phe purchase hadl not been a remunerative ollce, the increase bcing very small, and the pro duce not important. To shoe that the animals had been i~celhnatised, those which had been born in the country had proved of a superior qnlality. The course which t?Ie Government proposed to takle was to divide the whole tflock into small lots, and to sell them in such manner as should be deemed eipedient. In tlhus distributing tie animals tlhroughlout the colony, greater -scope ovmld be.givenfor testing thle explri mc "ant l an it. would probably be attended wiethipeate ,success in the hands of privato' individuils than in that of the Government.

RUST IN WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 23 February 1864
]RUST IN WHItEAT. A great deal of error is just now being propagated by non and pseudo agricultu ral journals in reference to the nature and causes of this. scourge of the farmer. A few weeks fince a communication to the S'ydnecy .Morning Herald reprinted in our colunoois, contained, amongst a great deal of useful information, the erroneous state ment that rust could be prevented by steeping the seed as usually practised for the prevention ofnsmut; and more lately metropolitan publication informed its readers that the rust was occasioned by "want of drainage." The rust, though new to farmers of exclusively Australian experience is familiar to every one who farmed in the mother country; where, in every season it is present in th; et crop to greater or less extent. .our more highly favored climate, bho? ver, the coilditions assontial to its spread-very rarely occur. ]ine dry weather for a month or six weeks before harvest would here be a total preventive of rust, which requires for it...
