RESCUE OF THE NEWCASTLE LIFEBOAT'S CREW. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 July 1867

RESCUE OF THE NEWCASTLE LIFEBOAT'S CHEW. The following is abridged from the New castle Chronicle of the 26th ult. : — ' The story of the rescue is a significant and deeply interesting one. After dark en Friday night, no effort of any kind could be put forth to rescue the lifeboat from her perilous position. The night to many, as may well be supposed, 'was tax intensely anxious one, and long before daylight on Saturday, numerous were the eyes that were scanning the dark surface of the Pacific, trying in vain by the faint light of a clouded moon, to make out the situation of the hapless boat. The gale continued to blow with great force until about 4 o'clock, when it moderated considerably, and it was hoped by many that the boat would be able to come in. Hour after hour passed, however, and still no sign of either the boat or her crew, dead or alive — and some were beginning to give up all hope. As the day advanced, the light, of course, increased, and in a short tune mere the outline ...

A SINGULAR CAREER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 July 1867

A SINGULAR CAREER.   A certain amount of interest attached to the late Mr John King, who died in Beech- worth Distrist Hospital, recently, on account of his courage in defending Mr Osborne's house, at Yackandandah, when it was attacked by armed robbers in 1854, when ho received injuries the effect of which rendered it neces- sary to confine him for some time in the Yarra Bend. Hitherto, however, it has not been mentioned that Mr King had once been in pos- session of considerable property, that he was a large merchant, and that he failed in business. Tko following curious scrap from an old news- paper, in relation to his bankruptcy, was found in his pocket book. It is incomplete, but (as the Ovens Advertiser observes) it is sufficient to show that he was one of those persons whom fate has marked out for a strange and chequered career : — ' Bankrupt Court, Wednesday, 8th November. In re King, a bankrupt. There was a meothig in this case for the proof of dobts and liual di...

Three Children of Mr Crabbe, a solicitor,   of Dunolly, the eldest a girl of thirteen, lost themselves in the bush on the 6th inst., while searching for wild flowers. News having   reached there of the fate of the children, in Daylesford great excitement prevailed. The inhabitants, after dark sent up rockets, and turned out with torches, the zeal of the search-   ing parties being happily rewarded , about half— past ten p.m.,by the discovery of the truants       among the ranges,a considerable distance from home.     MESSRS. BREARLEY BROTHERS TANNERY, at the Breakwater, Geelong, has undergone ex—   tensive improvements by the erection of a large drying shed, ninety-eight feet in length by sixty-four feet in breadth, and the importation   of a newly-invented rolling machine from         Leeds.

The water; ia the river has in ttiis instance reached a height certainly above that at tained in August, 1857, though the amount of excess is and will be in dispute. This flood will be remembered, not merely for its great height, but en account of' tho pecu liarly distressing circumstances attending it.
