THE PRINCESS OF WALES AND HER RELATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 1 March 1864
THiE PRI0NOCESS OF WALES ANT.D HER E RELATIVyES. (From the European c orrespondent of tce ".Nelson ExOninerc."). " Prince Christiaun's housekeeping _was conducted on the simplest possible scale.1 There was but one lady's'maid to wait on the Princess anid her two daughters, and a single valet supplied the corresponding needs of the Prince and the five boys. The other departments of this curiously-, simple PRoyal household were managed on. just the same scale. Princess Ale.xandra whls is saidpossesses "the gift of fairy fingers," and' is wonderfully expert in the use of the needle, always mado her own dresses and bonnets, planned, and partly made, those of lier mother and younger sister.. Nearly all the wearing apparel of the family was made at home, under the auspices, and with the help; of the one lady's imaid and;the other women servants. Of this homely talent, and tlhese homely ways, the future Queen of Eng laid has the good sense to be a little proud. She makes frequent allusions...

TRANSPORTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 1 March 1864
TRANSPOITATION. (From the Times, Nov. 18.) The bad shilling is always coming back to us. All Australia is bristling up to repel our convicts, if ever they touch the loneliest beach, the most solitary crag, on her vast circumforence. The instant a regulation boot from Dartmoor or Wool wich marks the virgin sands, an electric shock will pass round tile island conti nent and put every drop of British blood on its mettle against the intruder. Our unhappy statesman and philanthropists, who have all been taught in their youth that Australia is a very large island in deed, nearly as large as Europe, and, in faet, a fifth quarter of the globe, have been looking wistfully at a very bare space and very naked line of coast on its western shore, and they bethought-them selves that they could land a few reformed convicts there and not hear of theme again. But upstart C abinet and Legislature, coloe nial public and press, all round the isle, and a thousand miles off, and declare they'll lhave no ...
PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 1 March 1864
PUBLIC MEETING. The meeting, whichlul had been called by alvcrtisement in our columus. as well as by circulars distributed through the district, took place in the large room of tihe Per. inianagh lotel on Tuesday last. The at. tcndilace swas numerous, and many per sons were gathered round the doors outside. The chair was taken at ahout half-past one, by Thomas Chllpmli, ,Esq., .T.P. The proceedings excited nmuchl in terest; but, were stormy and irregular. Though the mrectling was called as a public one, it is probhabll that some of those who were chiefly concernec in initiating the movrmenet, neither expected nor desired that it sholld be made tihe occasion of.dis cussing the wholo quesetio of the Corpo ration-past, present, and to come-as it was actually made. It was rather intended, we believe, as a matter of sact, to be a meeting of those who were in favour of the plan of taking immediate steps to re mnedy by some means the evils caused by the sndleniable collapse, and consequent...

THE BENECIA BOY. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 1 March 1864
THE IDENEC.L?. BOY. :John Carmel Heenan wits born M1a42, 1833, in the United States Naval Airenal, at WYest Troy, County Albaiy,.

IHe is Oft. 11 in: in height, and weighed on Thursday ex actly '14 stone. His parents 'are Irish, having.boeen born in King'- County, Ire land, and being descended fromt such a pugnacious race, is, no doubt, one of the reasons the juv?i le. took so kindly and naturallto tp ,of his digits. He be came at lt eaeyage : foreman at lie necia, Californiai?(hence Iris familiar so briiuelt) where lie had opportunity of try ing his fistic capabilities. He acquired early experience somehow, and several occasional turns-up on the " diggins" in Califbrnia greatly improved his practical knowledge. On his arrival in New York he managed to attain the position of one of the leatding pugilists, without having entered the ring....
THE FIGHT FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 1 March 1864
THE FIGHT FOUl THE CHAMIPION : :SHIP., (Froi. ihe'London Sporting Life.) Although' Heenan and King both dis claimed the idea of the late match beiing an international one, the publie at large, both in England and America, evidently placed that construction upon the contest; And it cannot be wondered at that, while America is occasionally so insolent and defiant towards the old country, there should be strong feelings thrown into the balance when the victory of King is an nounced. Still, Heenan has a .large party in this country, and there is an im pression abroad among some people that lihe did not receive fair treatment in his fight with Sayers, and the general wish was that he might have some opportunity for the display of his prowess. We musty confess that we rejoice that IHeeian Ir had that opportunity, and that lihe has? been enabled to bring to a decisive issue an engagement with the Englishman. Everything -was carried out yesterday in a manner worthy of a national occa sion, ...

From our Special Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 1 March 1864
From our Special Correspondent. Word hs just been brought down that our men have lhad a fight with the rebels at. \aianu, on the 11th. It appears that a party of soldiers, when going down to bathe, :mnused themselves by chasing each other with their towels. The natives thought there was a good chllance to pounlle o llI1 unarnmed body, andll accordingly attacked thmln, bat Colonel \\raddl , with the 50th .Regiment and Forest Rangers. tired iato the lMaories, killing twenty-four and wounding several others. Our loss was bour menu of the 14th Regiment killed. The messenger states that IS bodies had been broaghlt in. Captain H-etphy, of the Auckland Rifle Volunteers was presenlt, andl rendered ser vice. He is slightly wounded in several places, but no danger need be anticipated by his friends. As this ambuscade has succeeded so well, it is likely our brave General will have a few more. Two of the men who wore severely awounded have sincee died.
PROTECTION IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 1 March 1864
P1TJ3OTE TION IN AMERICIA. (From the iJerald.) The example of America is often re ferred to as a proof of the benefit of pro tection. Properly read that example tells precisely the other way. Protection has complicated the whole course of politics in America. The manufacturers of the North-Eastern States, finding that they were in a minority, and that their inter ests were adverse to those of the great body of consumers, were under the neces sity of purchasing political support, and they bought it by a compromise with slavery. Free tradcl and free labour ought to go t~gothser-they have a natu ral sympathy and.co-.rdinatieu. But in America commnerce cislared went into partnership with labor'enslaved, :and to the injury of the country .hle partnership was maintained for half a century. The South, asau agricultural country, wasal ways enamoured of free trade, but then it loved its slave system still more. If it could not have both, it was willing to surrender that to which it. w:as the...
SILK CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 1 March 1864
SILK CUJLTIAT ? ION. (From the Herald.) • With reference to the medal offered by tho-Society of Arts for the production of Australian silk, a correspondent (Mr. J. Mi. Bate) reminds us that the matter has been abundantly pressed upon public at tention, and that the profitableness of the occupation has been proved so far as it is possible to do it, short of actual experi ment. But it is only experiment that carries experiment to the multitude. The persons who are convinced by reasoning are few, and are generally derided as theorists. It is the appeal to the senses -to realised facts that alone can satisfy the scepticism or despel the prejudices of the great mass of mankind. Talking and writing about new industries is of no use at all, except in so far as it may inspire some energetic enterprising person to de vote himself to a trial. The person who works out an idea may have many follow ers if he achieves a success; the person who merely propounds .an idea must not expect to witue.ps...
