SUMMARY OF EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1890

6111111 The Parliamentary session has opened some what ominously. The debate on the address in reply and the amendments moved thereon occu pied three weeks, and although the Government carried their point, yet some few defections resulted, while the Ministerial corner has ever since displayed restlessness if not dotnoralisa ' tion. The first amendment, . moved by Mr. James Munro, had little to recommend it to the notioe of hon. members. It expressed the opinion that the Houso should have been called together earlier, and that the new Railway Bill should precede the federation resolutions. It was sought to be shown that the Ministry desired to delay the Railway Bill and possibily shelve it altogether, as the Federation proposals, if once started, might engage the attention of the House for months. The Premier, however, declined to give way, for a reason which subsequently became apparent. As to the allegation that faith had not been broken with members in neglecting to call them toge...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 August 1890

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ' The remains of a man named Joel Reed have been found at Mannralkanina Creek. Reed left Bleaze's Well, in January, 1887, intending to go 'to Teetulpa aoross country and was not heard of again. The remains were found by a stock rider and block boy. A little girl 2 years old, named M'Aloney, had her eye fearfully bitten recently at Terowie by a dog. The child went to fondle the animal, whioh was asleep on a sofa, suffering from a sore foot. The child touched the Bore, 'which caused the dog to snap at her, his teeth penetrating the ball of one eye, necessitating the removal of the eye. The Commissioners of Railways, have now practically concluded an agreement nn' behalf of the Government with the Broken Hill Proprie- , tary Company and the Silverton Tramway. Com- pany, under whioh the traffic in connection with the company'* mine will be carried over South Australian railways for eight years, certain con-' cessions being made with regard to rates.

AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 August 1890

The weather during the past month was variable to some extent, heavy' rains having fallen in somo districts, and during the week ending 19th July some severe frosts occurred, whioh caused damage to tender plants in gar dens, especially young potato plants, whioh were cut down, but very little damage was caused to farm crops, and, upon the whole, grain crops have, made a good growth, and, as reported, they never looked better for the time of year, heavy crops being assured, provided future circumstances are favorable. It is cal culated that the area under cereal crops this year will be considerably above the average. Potato digging is completed, or nearly bo, in tho later distriots, and the quality is found to be an improvement on those dug earlier in the season. In tho Guiilburu Valley some damage has been caused by slugs, whioh in Nagambie, Toolamba and other places have done so muoh injury as to require the grain fields to be re-sown ; in nu merous paddocks of .several acres in ex...

THE OLD THEATRES OF MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 August 1890

THE OLD THEATRES OF MELBOURNE. As a sigh of prosperity, one could not have a better example than the progress of theatre?, anil in thin- light Melbourne takes a prominent part, for wo have in onr midst Rome of the finest building* in- the Southern hemisphere devoted to the amusement of the public. . Looking back to the past when Melbourne wns younger, the Sal de Valentino was in the list of houses. Its performances were not* perhaps, very hieh clnss, but it generallv managed to draw a orowd either at a concert, step dance or cirous. The Queen'H in its time commanded the /lite, nnd here many a digger opened champagne . in the circle, nnd - passed it around to his neighbors. ? The building, whioh is situated in Queen- street, has been standing since 1843, and wan taken by many leading men. among whom stands prominently Conrad Knowles.

TOWNSVILLE, QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 August 1890

TOWNSVILLE, QUEENSLAND. TownnvHle is built on the north bank of the Ross Creek,, but it also extends partly nn the 'slope of a mountain 1000 feet high.. The busi ness part of the town is confined to one large street, tho private residences, many of which are very fine, being situated on tho hill, although now several hotels and private residences have been built on the heaoh. It wa* first discovered in 1864, hy John Hudson Blaolc. nnd named after his partner. Captain Town. Tho chief disadvan tage Townsville has to contend with is that there is no natural anchorage. Even intercolonial steamers have to lie out some 3 miles from the shore. To remedy this, however, two breakwaters are being bnilt, extending nearly out to the present anchorage, and the harbor dredged out so that vessels may lie in safety during sales. When this is done the trade to here will be very largely inoreased. as Towns ville is the port to an immense extent of pastoral country besides two gnldfieids. Nearly nil t...

SKETCHES. — ILLAWARRA, NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 August 1890

SKETCHES.— ILL AWARRA, NEW SOUTH ' '?' WALES. Clifton, the first of our sketches, is a rising township, situated on the coast, about 36 miles from Sydney. Owing to the beautiful scenery and its splendid beach, the place is becoming a very favorite one for visitors. The old route from Sydney vid Campbelltown and Appin has now almost fallen into disuse, and the town is connected' by the railway line, which passes through magnificent semi-tropical forest scenery. The difficulties the railway engineers had- in constructing the line may be gauged from the fact that between the 'Waterfall station and Clifton there are no fewer then seven tunnels, one of whioh is 5000 feet in length. Our seconds sketch is taken from near the Sutherland rail way station, about. 15 miles from Sydney. The ? National Park has an area of 36,400 acres, and about 12 miles of water frontage, being bounded by the Woroiiora River, Port Hacking and the Pacific Ocean. It contains some fine specimens of the cabbage tre...

THEATRES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 August 1890

ffSTOW Mrs. Potter opened a second dramatic season at the Princess Theatre during the month, and in Romeo and Juliet has scored a most legiti mate success. Her impersonation of the fair Veronese has boen the theme of univer sal applause, and the financial results have been in a corresponding (degree satis factory. Mr. Kyrle Bellow's Romeo is con sidered a companion picture no less worthy of approval, and though the subordinate members of the company are weak and indifferent, yet the abilities' of the principals have carried them through triumphantly. The business at the Royal has boen much less encouraging. The latest production has' been a drama entitled the Blaok Country, one of Pettitt's and Chas. Read. It is a very poor and absurd piece, and the company, in scarcely any instance, has not shown more than mediocre capacity. Mr. William Rignold has been playing Jack Saxton in Nowadays at the Opera House with fair prospects. The piece is, however, considered weak, and the only redee...

A WHIRLWIND AT BROKEN HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 August 1890

A WHIRLWIND AT BROKEN HILL. Although the Barrier silver field is peryaps one of the richest in the world, still as a place to live in it is far from desirable. The country is monotonous in the extrome, consisting of rooky hills and miserable Bandy plains covered with salt bush and cotton bush. Timber it has none, with the exception of. a few red gums along the bank of the creek at Silvorton and occasional dumps of gidya. For miles and miles nothing meets the ' eye but the interminable saltbush. No grass grows nearer than 100 miles further south. The climate, whioh in winter, is nearly perfect, in summer is almost unbearable. Now and again a Barrier dust storm token place. This much resembles a Melbourne briokfielder, except that the dust storm expends in one day as muoh dust as would lest the brickfielder for a generation. Another disadvantage inseparable from living on the Barrier is the whirlwinds. Looking down on the plain one may often see a great pillar of dust moving along. Wh...

SOME RELICS AT WILLIAMSTOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 August 1890

SOME RELICS AT WILLIAMSTOWN. On the southern side of Hobson's Bay lies the quaint port of Williamstown, standing on a peninsula all in its glory as if to bid defiance to all outsiders. In the olden days it was thought that this town would have' been the port and city of Melbourne, but fate determined otherwise. The consequence is that it has not gone ahead as it would have' done, and some of the relics of past day* and deeds, although fast decaying away, still stand, and are remembered as subjects for the artist, the poet and the stage. Our first nketch is' .that of an old hulk that is past redemption, quietly, rotting on the beach, bedded up in sand. The owners, if any living, not thinking her worth powder and shot to break up, sell and cleptir away. Our next is that of an old building that was in|the golden days occupied by conlvots and' their guards, who were employed on several works in the distriot. It has now a'iormidable battery alongside it, facing down the Bay. The 'old lig...

OUR ILLUSTRATIONS. WINTER ON MOUNT HOTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 August 1890

'WINTER ON MOUNT HOTHAM. Mount Hothatn, or Baldy,' to give it the name it is best known by in the district, is one of the numerous high points in the Great Divide. , Mounts' Feathertop, Bogong, Nelson and several other peaks claim to be the highest in Victoria, . although Mount Kosciuskb, just over the border in Now South Wales, is the highest of the range. With the exception of Feathertop, none of them are as well known as Baldy, for along it runs the road from Harrietville to Omeo, a route that is now becoming a favorite one with travellers in the summer, for after once ascend ing the range the road, for nearly 40 miles, runs in and out along the spurs and hills, and the altitude affords a- magnificent panorama, to say nothing of its being a good many degrees of heat below the roads on the plains. In winter, however, the road is almost impassable. No one ever uses it except the mailman, who once a week opens up communication with the outer world with his bag of letters. ' To give ...
