A KANGAROO HUNT ON THE PYRAMID CREEK. A very exciting kangaroo hunt took place recently at the Pyramid Creek, in the Mount Hope district, about sixty miles from Sandhurst. We give ? the particulars as thev were fur nished by Mr Bakoweli, of Sand hurst, who formed one of the hunting ? party on the occasion. ' ' I recently took,' he eays, ' one of my many ex cursions up the country, shooting and hunting at this season of the year. ? Our party consisted of four gentlemen ; we took two waggonB with us and one buggy, four retrievers and six kan garoo dogs. As I always go prepared to camp out, I was careful to see that we had provisions and everything necessary for the journey. After we had well filled our bags with ducks, turkeys, native companions, &c, making in all some ninety-six couple, we commenced kangaroo and emu hunting. Travelling up the Pyramid Creek, we arrived at the dam near Booth and Hollowny's wool shed. Here I was ahead, saw a mob of kangaroos in a paddock, and tw...

THE MELBOURNE MEAT PRESERVING COMPANY'S WORKS AT THE SALTWATER RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 12 September 1868

THE MELBOURNE MEAT PRESERVING COMPANY'S WORKS AT THE SALT WATER RIVER. The long dobated qnostion ns to whether pur surplus sheep nnd oxen can bo proserved, and so constituted un nrticlo of export from this colony, seems now in a fair wny of being prac tically tested, and on a scalo distancing at once all previous efforts raado by private indi viduals iu this direction. We present our renders this month with two illustrations of tho factoiy erected for tho purposo of preserv ing meat on tho banks oitho Saltwater River, at Muribyrnoiig, by tlio Melbourno Meat Pre serving Company (Limited), now commencing business. Our space will not allow us to enter into tho merits of tho question ns to whether or not it will', pay to 'tin' meat in this colony, but si) all content ourselves with the remark that it Hooms obvious that it must be a romn nerativo enterprise, when wo consider that meat is daily so preserved in England and Scotland on an enormous scalo for the use of tho naval and mercanti...

ECLIPSE OF THE SUN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 12 September 1868

ECLIPSE OF THE SUN. The eclipse of the sun, which took place on Tuesday, 18th ult., though only very partial, was clearly visible to all who had provided themselves with smoked glasses or perforated cards ; inacea, sometimes tno indentation was visible to the unprotected eye through the thin veil of clouds which partially obscured the sun's discs throughout the middle phases. The important astronomical facts, the times of the first and last contacts, wore satisfactorily determined at the Observatory, and coincided almost precisely with the predicted times, and showed in a remarkable manner the acouraoy to which the lunar tables are now brought. The Melbourne mean time of the first con tact was 3 h. 49 min. 34-7 sec, and the last contact, 5 h. 0 min. 22-5 eeo. Although this eclipse was comparatively so unimportant as an astronomical occurrence in this part of the world, it was nevertheless the most' wonderful eclipse that has occurred in the history of mankind.

ST. JOHN'S CHURCH, CAMBERWELL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 12 September 1868

ST. JOHN'S CHURCH, CAMBERWELL. - About six miles from Melbourne, beyond Hawthorn, Hob the small but rapidly increasing village of Camberwell, so called, we believe, after the well known suburb of London,* from the oircumBtanco of there being six roada meeting together at both places. Five years since a solitary public house was nearly all that - gave the village ' a local habitation and a name ;' bnt about that time some earnest * members of the Anglican Church commenced the erection of a small edifice for public wor ship. In a very short time it became necessary to enlarge this building. Then followed the ereotion of a handsome and commodious par sonage and a large common school. It has become necessary to enlarge the church again, as there is no room for the children attending the Sunday sohool, who, we are told, exceed 120 x in number. Our sketch represents the alterations as they will appear when ? completed. Flans have been prepared by Mr Billing, and if the works are completed...

Tho report of the committee stated that, taking all circumstances into account, the society was in a most flourishing condition.

' If he turn not he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow and made it ready.' — Psalm vii. 12. ' If the sinner turn not, God will whet his sword.' So, then, God has a sword, and ho will punish man on account of his iniauity. This evil generation hath labored to tako away from God tho sword of hla jus tice ; they havo ondoavorod to provo to thomselvos that God will ' clear -ho guilty,' and will by no means ' punish iniquity, transgrcsnioa and sin.' Two hun dred years ago tho predominant strain of tho pulpit was one of terror ; it was like Mount Sinai, it thun dered forth tho droadf ul wrath uf God, and from the lips of a Baxter or a Banyan you heard most torrible ser mons, full to the brim with warnings of judgment to come. Perhaps somo of the Puritanic fathers may havo gene too far, and have given too graat a prominence to th...
