EARTHQUAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 August 1867

EARTHQUAKE.     The shock of an earthquake was experienced in and around Melbourne at half-past five a.m. on the 10th instant.So far as our inquiries     extend, it was very generally felt in the city   and suburbs. Information has reached us   from Heidelberg, Boorondara, Hawthorn, Kew, South Yarra, Williamstown, and Queenscliff, which indicates that the vibration was more or less intensely experienced in those localities. All reports singularly agree as to the point of time at which the ' shock ' took place. The chronometer of Mr Crisp, jeweller, Queen street, stopped at 5.30½ a.m., and a clock on the premises of Mr Katzenstein, similarly re- corded the exact period of the shock. A resi- dent on the Balaclava-road writes : — 'A violent shock of an earthquake was felt, this morning, at half-past five. It commenced with a low rambling noise, which gradually increased in violence. The house in which I was s...

THE PENAL ESTABLISHMENT AT PENTRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 August 1867

THE PENAL ESTABLISHMENT AT PENTRIDGE. In another portion ot this edition we publish some illustrations of the internal arrangements and discipline of the Pentridge Stockade, in which the convict element of our population is subjected to punishment for offences of a serious nature. The Stockade derives its name of Pentridge from the village in which it is situated, which lies about four miles distant   from the city. It is an immense prison, cover ing several acres of ground surrounded with massive stone walls, and externally presenting an appearance of great security. It is capable of holding between 800 and 900 convicts'. The prisoners are divided into three classes, A. B. and C. There are subdivisions of those letters indicating the graduation of punish   ment and the character of the prisoner               who, as he ascends in the alphabetical scale, becomes entit...

A SAD STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 August 1867

A SAD STORY. A recent number of the Maryborough     Chronicle. (Queensland) contains the follow- ing sad story :- "An accident, occurred at Woody Island on Sunday afternoon, when. Mr Kerley, of this town, was unfortunately       drowned. The following are the particulars as we have been able to gather them. Kerley   was in the service of Mr District Surveyor Davidson, who, with Mr Hull, is engaged in making large surveys of agricultural land on   the coast near the mouth of the Mary. On Sunday afternoon it was proposed by some of Mr Davidson's men that an excursion should be made to Woody Island to see the light-   houses recently erected there. The excursion was accordingly, made, deceased being one of the party. After visiting the light-houses and strolling about for some time, preparations were made for getting tea, and whilst these were going on Kerley said he would go and loo...

THE DOMESTIC DIFFICULTY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 August 1867

THE DOMESTIC DIFFICULTY. I have been giving my mind so- riously to the evolvement of a social problem. I visit a good deal when business is slack, and being a tame sort of domestic animal, am an unceremoniously received and not unwelcome guest at many a family tea-table. Past the age of being suspected of intentions of any kind, I devote myself to mater familias, whilst some of my fast young friends are making — what is known in racing parlance— as strong running with the daughters. Better gifted with the faculty of listen ing than that of talking, I have   discovered a key-note which never fails to relieve me from all neces- sity of' speech. There is one     standing topic upon which your   notable housewife is never ex- hausted. "How does your new ser- vant get on, Mrs __," lets loose     a flow of eloquence upon the short comings of female domestics which nothing can stem but a proposal of short whist —...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 August 1867

A Curious Accident occurred to Mr Garsed, of Sandhurst, on 14th inst. He had occasion to go to a cellar in which he keep's some por- tion of his chemicals, with a lighted candle, and on entering the, cellar an explosion took place, and a body of flame filled the cellar. Sir Garsed made one ineffectual attempt to get up the stairs, but fortunately succeeded at the second attempt. It appeared that a gallon bottle of sulpuric ether had been broken in the cellar unknown to him, and that the light which he had in his hand communicated with   the fumes of the other. The effect was that   his hands and face were very severely burnt. A VIOLENT and destructive whirlwind passed within a mile and a half of Colbinabbin station, as we learn from the M'lvor Times. It took up large trees and threw them about like sticks ; nothing in its course stood the slightest chance of escape if not too small to expose a surface to act upon. There was also a waterspout accompanying th...

PHASES OF MELBOURNE LIFE. UNDER THE VERANDAH. NO. III. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 August 1867

PHASES OF MELBOURNE LIFE. [FROM THE LEADER.] UNDER THE VERANDAH. No.III.     We have been having rather a dull time of it under the Verandah of late. As in duty bound, we have a way of accounting for it. I assure you we don't   read the share reports for no- thing. If a pa ternal and be   nign Govern ment would but create some half dozen Cricket reserves and a dozen - or so Public Parks, and give one en tire to each of the late and pro-   sent claimants, of course keep ing back a few   for future distri bution to those who asked for   them, we would   all feel much livelier under the Verandah. As   it is, we make the most of our grievances, and really there is some consola tion in knowing what's the mat ter with 'us. I have observed something simi ar in the reports of the produce markets when refreshing a weary brain with   that light and airy class of li...

LAYING THE FOUNDATION STONE OF A ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 August 1867

LAYING THE FOUNDATION STONE OF A ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. A very impressive ceremony of the Roman Catholic Church was performed at Richmond   on 4th inst., when the foundation-stone of the Church of St. Ignatius was laid by the Most Reverend Dr. Polding, Archbishop of Sydney. For several reasons the event, is of special in terest to the Roman Catholics of the colony. The highest ecclesiastic of the Roman Catholic Church, in the southern hemisphere, by offi- ciating as principal in the religious rites proper to the occasion, invested them with increased interest, and it is, no doubt, a subject of con— gratulation among the members of the denomi-   nation that the day's proceedings signally mark the settlement in this colony of a   regular order of clergymen, chiefly, devoting   themselves to higher educational duties. The   clergymen of whose administrations the Church of St Ignatius, is intended, commenced their educatio...

EXECUTION OF SEARLE AND BALLAN. [BALLARAT POST, AUGUST 7.] [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 August 1867

EXECUTION OF SEARLE AND BALLAN.         [BALLARAT POST, AUGUST 7.]   The murderers of Mr Thomas Ulick Burke, suffered the extreme penalty of the law at nine o'clock this morning. It is scarcely three months since the date of the crime, and yet all the claims of justice have been fully     satisfied. In this case moreover there is not the slightest shadow of reason for supposing   that others than the guilty have been sacri-   ficed to appease the requirements of an un- bending law. From the period they were sen- tenced they have had no hope of escape from death held out to them, and a petition to the Executive Council, from Searle, praying for clemency, on the ground that the information given by him was with the expectation of his life being spared, received prompt and care- ful consideration, but there was nothing to warrant any favor being displayed to either of th...
