Act of Council, the Government of Victoria has taken
into its own hands this punt, with many others, compen-
sating the owners thereof, of course, for their vested in-
terest therein. The River Campaspie empties itself into
the Murray about a mile and a half below Maiden's
Punt or Moama and in a snug comer on the Victoria
side, just on the junction of the two rivers, an enterpri-
sing publican has 'squatted' himself. To his inn he
has artached among other things, a punt of very supe-
rior construction, ta ply over the Murray; and he is also
about to launch another punt for the purpose of crossing
the Campaspie, near the junction. The Act of Council
specifies that no person shall establish and ply a punt
within one mite of any Government punt, and this of
course has been properly provided for by the rival punt pro-
prietor. Whether it is from the superior accommodation
afforded at the new ferry, or whether it is from the fact
that the man who has leased from the Government of
Victoria Maiden's well-known punt is generally disliked
by those who have been accustomed to pass this way, the
reader will guess when all the facts are known, but the
Ferry. It should be borne in mind that the township of
Maoma, as well as all the land in the neighbourhood of
the two ferries is a part of a very extensive run occupied
by Henry Lewis, Esq, J.P. To reach Hopwood Ferry
some distance before it enters the township, and thus
two roads are made through Mr. Lewis's run, of which
he complains. For the accommodation of persons tra-
velling with horned cattle, Hopwood built a stockyard
on the New South Wales side of the Murray, and on Mr.
Lewis'a run of course. The latter gentleman brought
the matter before the Bench of Magistrates at Denilo-
quin, or the Sand Hills, and the proceedings are still
pending in that Court; but Mr. Lewis not relishing the
"law's delay," determined on adopting prompt mea-
claim. A vast amount of correspondence has passed
between the latter party and the New South Wales
Government respecting permission to occupy the dis-
puted territory or to purchase it, but no satisfactory
termination has been arrived at. Thus the matter

  22. Australia First conspiracy trial
    List
    Public

    In 1942, a small group of individuals in Western Australia planned to seize the reins of government "when the Japanese landed". They moulded themselves on the various European collaborators with the Germans, but were totally pathetic as plotters. The coverage is taken from the 'Kalgoorlie Miner': this is for consistency, because I first encountered it there: I may add other sources later.

  27. Calvert's gold
    List
    Public

    I selected John Calvert (1814-1897) as a suitable case for treatment when I came across a reference in an 1850s 'Scientific American' to a London court case against James Wyld in April 1854 (Wyld was, at that point, the subject of my enquiries). Calvert shares his name with one of Leichhardt's 1844-1846 exploration party, but I knew it wasn't the same man, and he sounded sufficiently dubious to be interesting to investigate. The entries are in chronological order. The 'Encyclopaedia of Australian Science' says some thought him a romancer. I am at one with his contemporaries (you will find them in this list) who called him an impostor and a Munchausen.

  28. coolies in Australia
    List
    Public

    Looking at the various attempts to introduce coolies into Australia. I hope soon to annotate the rest of the entries more usefully. Note that "coolies" at first meant Indian workers only, but was later extended to include Chinese. The systems under which they were employed were similar to the contracts used with Kanakas, late in the 19th century. Note that the language and attitudes of the day were somewhat confronting (or worse!). The order is strictly chronological, so if you know a date, scroll down!

  30. early use of language
    List
    Public

    This records my searches for the earliest instances in newspapers of a number of apparently Australian terms. The order is alphabetical by term and then by year, with the year of use appearing in each note. My plan is generally to offer three to five of the earliest hits that I find on any given word or phrase. (This parsimonious intention has been ignored, as in "billy", where there is a curious pattern of uptake to be observed and tested more fully.) Note that some of these selections have explanatory comments and references as well. IMPORTANT: please look at the first item, as I have now started assembling these into a rather more accessible web page, which is the first item in the list.

  37. Kokoda track
    List
    Public

    This began as a selection of the best journalism written by those unsung heroes, the Australian journalists who travelled the Owen Stanley Track, and against trenchant censorship from the Brass, told the tale. I have since added a few other useful backgrounders on the early history of the track. The order is chronological, the selector's bias shows in the way items referring to the "Kokoda Trail" have been ignored. Those items were mostly left out because they are more likely than not to be poisoned by McArthur's publicity machine, written by people who had been no closer than Melbourne. Those who actually went there called it a track.

    A Wellington shepherd named Hugh M'Gregor, alias Macgregor or McGregor was widely credited with being the first to find gold. This is an attempt to pull all of the available information on him together: it will certainly assist anybody trying to track down this elusive character. With this aim in mind, I have also flagged the rare items which mention his forename, and attempt to follow his later life.

  43. Royal Commission on Gold Stealing
    List
    Public

    Stories relating to the W.A. Royal Commission which examined the prevalence of gold stealing in the eastern goldfields. It began with a 1906 report on gold theft by an English journalist called Scantlebury, and ended up leading to some changes, aimed at trapping the fences who bought stolen gold. The hero was 33-year-old Detective Sergeant Peter Kavanagh who got the evidence, but died in Sydney in 1908.

There are two conscious purposes shaping my selections: my writerly aim is to find material relevant to a writing project that I have in mind, my pedagogical aim is to provide a collection of thought-provoking pieces for use in education at any level. That is to say, I hope that these choices may help learners to think—and to question their assumptions as I did, when I found the marine spiders!

    Before Ludwig Leichhardt took off to find a route, others were talking about it. This pulls together some of those threads and reveals why people thought finding such a "road" would be a good idea. Personally, I suspect that some of them were thinking of a future railway, but did not dare stick their necks out that far.

    A Dutch or German sailor called Wildman claimed in 1863 to have found gold in Camden Harbour (near the Glenelg River) seven years previously, and claiming to have sold the gold in Liverpool. He offered, for a remission, to lead the way there. The gold was never found, in part because he failed to cooperate, and then tried to steal the ship's two boats and make a run for it.

    Articles relating to the visit to Australia of zoologist William Hay Caldwell who elucidated the reproductive modes of monotremes and marsupials and studied the lungfish, along with some notes on his little-known marriage to a Sydney heiress. There are many more articles tagged with Caldwell's name which may be accessed from any of these. There are also other tags that may help the dedicated scholar: the furore over marsupial reproduction can be identified by the tag "bad science". Just watch the tags, OK?

  54. Women in trousers
    List
    Public

    The very idea of women wearing trousers horrified many in the 1930s and 1940s. The war changed a lot of that, but even in the 1950s, there were strong reactions. This is an attempt to landmark some of the events in the slow climb to rationality. This will be a slow-growing collection, but there is already enough to reveal the sort of shock that was aroused. I cleaned this up in late 2015, and will now stop, because researchers have enough leads to follow by looking for key words in my selections.
