THE ICHTHYOSAURUS AUSTRALIS (M'OOY). A NEW AUSTRALIAN FOSSIL MONSTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 12 September 1868

THE ICHTHYOSAURUS AUSTRALIS (M'COY). A NEW AV8THAMAN FOSSIL MONBTKK. Oar figures represent, perhaps, the most in teresting fossil remains that have ever been found in Australia, some of the principal frag ments of the great nowly-discovered Enalio saurian fossil rentiles described hv Prnfnnanr M'Coy at a recent meeting of the Royal So ciety, and now in the National Museum, to which they havo been presented by Mr Carson. The Enaliosduria are extinct fossil monsters classed with the Jteptilia, having very nnmerons conical teeth like those of croco diles, but having each of tho joints of the backbone hollowed conically on both endB as in fishes, and having the limbs modified into flippers like those of a whale, so that the creature was fitted for Jiving in tho sea. All creatures of this type of structuro have long ceased to exift, and their remains aro only found in geological formations of the Mesozoio age, of whioh tho lias and oolitic rocks of the middle of England are, togother wit...

WARNE AND WEBSTER'S WABE HOUSE, PLINDER'S-LANE, MEL BOURNE. Flinder's lone, with its gigantic warehouses, will, before long, rival the most pretentious business localities in any of the older cities of Europe, or great emporiums of America Trudging along its narrow footpaths the other day, we were struck with amazement at the Bight of another five-story warehouse drawing towards completion, and on making inquire' learned the following particulars regarding it : —This stately and elegant structure is beinp erected for the enterprising firm of Warnc and Webster, importer and clothing manu facturers. The space ocoupied is 27 feet frontage by a depth of 90 feet, and 62 feet in height from footpath to the top of blocking. The half sunk basement is of. blues tone ashlar to the level of the ground floor, and from thence, to the top of the building, of brick, each floor being lit by windows on both sides.

UNDER THE VERANDAH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 12 September 1868

UNDER THE VERANDAH. When the would-be assaoain of H.R.H. Prince Alfred wns upon his trial in Sydney, a witness from Ballarat was examined .as to O'Farrell'e antecedents in tho latter place. In the coarse of bis evidence he had more than once occasion to mention ' The Corner,' at Ballarat. Counsel, interrupting the witness, inquired what place he meant to designate by 'The Corner?' Besenting the learned counsel's ignorance of a place which he considered ought to be so well known, the witness, with, severe dignity, replied, ' I know, sir, but of three great centres of cemmerco in the world, viz., tho the Exchange at Liverpool, the Bourse in Paris, and the Corner at Ballarat 1' Now, al though there can scarcely be claimed for the locality, to-day illustrated, so distinguished a parallelism, there is not another spot upon the golden Boil ef Australasia where so large an amount of business is transacted as Under the Verandah., Situated u,pon the sunny side of the leading street of t&...

PORT PHILLIP FARMERS' SOCIETY'S PLOUGHING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 12 September 1868

PORT PHILLIP FARMERS' SOCIETY'S PLOUGHING MATCH. ' .. 'The military reserve, between Prince's bridge and Emerald-hill, was, on the 2ndinst., the scene of operations that now rarely take place in such cloae proximity to Melbonrne. A portion of the reserve that boro distinct in dications of having been under the plough at some period of the colony's exist ence was tho site of the sooiety 'a cham pion ploughing match, and tho indications of which we have spoken proved to have been made by the hon. J. P. Fawkntr in 1836, who in that year ploughed a largo por tion of this flat with a view to raise the ordi nary crops of the farm. Mr Fawkner, how over, never reaped what he had sown, for the Government of the day turned its horses on the spot. We are not qaite sure that farmer Fawkner would have had a crop even had tho horseB let it alone ; for the land, judging from the cLmraoter of the natural herbage, is too brackish to bear wheat, oats, or fresh water grasses, and there can be little d...

THE MELBOURNE ANNUAL SHOW OF ENTIRE HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 12 September 1868

THE MELBOURNE ANNUAL SHOW OF ENTIRE HORSES. We don t think memory has played us false, but we are certainly of opinion that Bourke street, 1st inst., was fuller than on previous occasions of a similar kind. The orowd during show- time was so dense about the region of the Roval Horse Bazaar as to render the pasoage oi vonioiea tno reverse oi easy, ana ii asked to say whether so great interest was jus tified, we must unhesitatingly say that we think it was. Both in draught horses and thoroughbreds there was muoh more than usual to attract men who deal in horses or h«ve a tuste for equine beauties. Amongst the draught entires that were ostensibly sent only to be admired was Victor, a recent importation from Adelaide, belonging to that enterprising breeder, Mr Andrew Rowan, of Kyneton ; undaunted by tho loss of his last Victor, he has imported another and a remarkably handsome one of the same name. Then Mr Dt-rhum showed a couple, one of which that cl lims to be tho trun Boh Burns, was ...

THE EARTHQUAKE WAVE AT THE CHATHAM ISLANDS. The schooner Rifleman arrived at Port Chalmers on the 27th August, from the Chatham Iaiands, with a cargo of cattlo and horses. She left the islands on tho 21st, and has brought the following information : — On tho morning of tho 15th August the Chathams were visited by three tidal waves, whioh were attended with loss of life and pro perty. The settlement of Tupunga, situated on the northern side of tho island, felt the greatest force of it. The settlement was en tirely destroyed; not a mark is left to toll where it stood, tho ground being covered with sand and seaweed.

COMEDY OF ERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 5 October 1868

COMEDY OP ERRORS. Last week we quoted from a Bendigo paper a thrilling narrative of a 'desperate Btrnggle with Chinese thieves,' at Inglewood. A subsequent account in the Inglewood Adver tiser gives a version of the affair to whioh 'The Comedy of Errors 'would be a fitting title: — 'In our last issue we gave an account of an attempted robbery of copperplates by .Chinese, at Harvey's mill, about three o'clock on the morningof 13th ult., and of the desperate struggle in whioh constable Gordon was en gaged while trying to capture one of the rob bers. As far as these main incidents are con cerned, the account was thoroughly correct, for the condition of two of the copperplates, and the finding of a Chinaman's hat and Blipper prove tho visit of the Chinese, while constable Gordon's head, with no less .than fonr wounds right down to the skull, bears ample testimony to the severity of the en counter between him and his assailant. In other respects, however, our acoouut was not 80 correot. ...
