WESLEYAN STOCK BAZAAR. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 5 November 1859

\WESLEYAN STOCK BAzAARl.-According to 'ad-, vertisement this bazaar was held on Thursday last, in the paddock adjoining the Wesleyan Chapel. The attendance oil the occasion was numerous, and the spirit for purchase, cheering. The number of stock was not equal to what had been anticipaited, as some friends who had promised failed to forward their offerings; but owing to the. superior qualityjof such as were sent, also of the auctioneering ability of Mr. Waldron, whose services were given gratui tously, the prices were in general high, and the entire amount above expectation, One cow brought £17, another £14 5s., and so on. A calf of a few months old, which, from the .amount realised by it, may be considered rather interesting-it was sold and resold till the sum of £14 15s. was- ob tained; each person, as he purchased, offering it to the same object for which it was at first given. The total amount realised by the sale was £125 2s., but as there are other donations yet to come in, it ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 5 November 1859

The political events of the past week have taken the country by: surprise. Few, compara tively', anticipated the accession of Mr. FoRSTER to office, and less, perhaps, 'expected. the retire ment of Mr. CowPs'E from public life. For our own part, we never.supposed Mr. FORSTER was the man for a leadership in the House, and espe cially when-placed atthe head of a government. We believe that the elements of mind essential to a man beingan efficient and powverful leader of a majority in the House are not to be found in Mr. -FORSTER. -This opinion,-which we formed soon after the honorable gentleman entered the Assem bly, we have never since had reason to alter, though we have followed him closely, and some times not without high admiration of his talents and' peculiar, independency, -more, perhaps, .the result of certain properties 'of mind, than- of: his being a disciplined, free and impartial iember of responsible government. ' If we remember correctly; the very first speech Mr. FORSTER...

CHINA. By thea Sea :itch, we. have news from China to the:3rd September. Weo take the following from the' No:rth China Herald of that date : Our file of the Pekin Gazatte reaches from the 4th to the 10th August. They contain several curious papers on Chinese matters. One from Hoch'un, who holds the appointment of general of the Tartar Garrison of Nanking, and as high commissioner conducts operations in the neigh borhood of that city, relates how the expectant *li-tuh, or general-in-chief of the Chinese pro vincial force, by name Kiuh Tien-hwa, enraged with one Ling Shun-tung, a recently degraded brigadier, for cutting the shaft of a spear some inches too short, first abused him violently and then made him kneel down in a puddle for se veral hours, giving orders that he was to be slapped in the face with the hand uintil the evening.

CAPITAL 'PUISMnIENTs.-The Bill intro ,duced into the Loegislative. Assembly, on the 127th ultimo, by Mr. Murray, for abolishing capital .punishment in New South Wales, con :issts of three short clauses. Section 1 provides that on and after the passing of the .Act, son tence of death shall not be recorded against any person whomsoever. Section 2 enacts that im prisonment for life,"with" hard labor~ shallbe subsutituted for any crime hitherto punishable with death. Section 3 reserves her Majesty's royal prerogative of mercy. FROST AND FIRE.-The Braidwuood Dispatch says:- The Weather has been playing some strange tricks lately; in the day the. heat has been parching and oppressive, the nights cold and frosty. Owing to the former state of the atmosphere, the ground and herbage has become so burnt up that the fires which broke out all over the district during the past week have caused apprehensions of a consequent loss of food during the summer.

S (roosit Im eOCoESTER UNONx I, ST JULY) S.The promised feat of walking across the: Falls of Niagara, on a tight rope, was successfully ae complished yesterday by Monsieur:Blodin, in, i the. presence of thousands of.spectatob~ / . The weather was delightful-the sun shone brightly, but there was brdezo 'enouah froni the river to modify its influenc? and mailke every shady grove a pleasant spot to -repose in. The banks of the river on either side for half a mile were alive with people, who had solected the best pbsitions they could find to obtain ap full view of the rope upon which the feat was to be per formed. " About four o'clock M. Blondin arrived in a carriage decorated with the Americail and French flags, and was received with cheers from the mul titude, music from the band, and the 'firing of a cannon, which was answered from' the Canada side. A ring was made by a rope, 'ihd within the ring was a tight rope six feet above the ground, upon which the preliminary exibition'took pl...

S. ULLADULLA. FROM. OUR CORnesrosE:T.)] In mny last I promisod you a more full account of the municipal meeting that came off here on the 20th instant; but it is scarcely worth while, now that it is so'old. Suffice, that Mr. James Berkin shaw, ourlate candidate for legislative honors; has been round the settlement with.a'counter petition, headed by Daniel Warden, Esq., J. P., &c., and a few other obstructionists, in conjunction with all those whom they could pick up, who are totally igno rant as to:their designs, and would always sign the first that come. With regaird to the attack that Cui has thought proper to make:oi me,.through the columns of the Illawarrma Mercury, I have very little to say, for this simple reason-that he condemns himself. .

JAMBEROO. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 5 November 1859

JAMBEROO. (FROM OUR coeRRsrPONDs r.) After the. tantalising appearance and disappear ance of rain during several days, a first instalment ,was received here yesterday morning early,.in the form of a handsome shower of three or four hoirs duration, which had cleared ofl, however; by day break, and there are no present signs of more. The annual examination of the children of the Episcopalian Denominational School, took place on Monday last. The prizes, which it is the practice to distribute, will,- as usual, be given at the yearly tea party, about the commencment of the new year. I am assured, however, by an ungallant member of the masculine side of the establishment, that the girls will not be entitled to any of them. The present Episcopalian teacher, Mr. Pidcock, who succeeded Mr. Saunders, a few months since. is said to be well adapted for his profession, at least, ac- cording to the report of his pupils-not the worst judges perhaps of the matter. There are two denom- minational sc...

FOUND DEAD.-We have just heard, with regret, that a man named Charles Webb, of' this town, has been found dead in Mr. W. King's paddock. It ap- pears that while a sale of Mr. King's cattle was effected, the unfortunate man was seen helping him self to the the cursed liquid fire, the common beve- rage at sales, till at last he fell prostrate on the ground; when, after some time, he was noticed in a dying state, and soon expired. The particulars of the death we will give in our next. TilE LATE Foo.-A fog exceedingly dense en veloped this town on the forenoon of last Monday. We so seldom down hero see anything of the kind that some may have felt a little alarmed. Its density was such that the eye could not discern an object at the distance of but a few paces. ' About ,noon it was dissipated-not a vestage visible.. It brought with it no calamity save .one. of a slight nature. The usual mail was not dispatched by the steamer that day,.as th6 steamer could notbe recog nized from the post-...

GERRINGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 5 November 1859

GERRINGONG. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) THE CROPS.--The aphis has been so long a pest   in our gardens that the eating of cabbage is becoming an old tradition; and now, to make bad worse,   the insect called the lady-bird, is in multitudes   destroying the potatoes. Many persons have lost large and flourishing crops. The insect is generally worse on the early than the late potatoes; so those going in now may escape. LOCAL IMPROVEMENTS.-Mr. Miller has improved his estate and benefitted the public at the same time by a work just now completed, namely; making a permanent opening for the lagoon known as Weira Creek. A canal has been cut through the north bank from the creek to the sea, about three hundred feet long and sixteen wide at the bottom. The north side of the cutting is very high, and though well sloped, a mass of several tons of earth has slipped from it; but serious injury is not   apprehended ; it is thought the first flood w...
