THE FERN GATHERER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 5 October 1868

THE FERN GATHERER. ' Thisrpninting, by R. Herdman, U.S.A., was purchased for our National Gallery. It repre sents a girl coming home with a bundle of fern which she'has gathered on a moor. She ap pears to be tired ; tho flush upon her face, and her attitude as she loano against the rock upon which she has deposited her ferns, indicate the feeling of weariness whioh tho painter wisheB to convoy. This impression ia still further con veyed by the long stretch of moorland which she has had to traverse, and on which tho shades of evening are beginning to gather. It is a slight subject, but handled in a masterly manner. Every line and every bit of coloring contributes to tho ono eft'eot of making the picturo at once tell its own story.

His - companions narrowly escaped a similar fate. 4 , The Ararat and Pleasant Creek Advertiser vouches that the following romantic story comes from the best authority: — 'A wedding will shortly bo celebrated between two who aro now dwelling in the neighborhood of Pleasant Creek, whose experience in the pleasant and ordinarily rosy path of courtship has certainly ' proved of the most trying kind. Perseverance, however, has been tardily rewarded, and if rashly uttered vows have been rigidly adhered to, they have in this instance proved the means - of achieving a well deserved succe...

THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 5 October 1868

THE MONTH. ? *— ? .. % Parliament was prorogued on the 29th, with - the UBaal ceremonies. Daring the month it baa been occupied in passing some praotioal measures' of legislation which were urgently called for. First and foremost was the bill proposing to borrow upwards of a million for , the purpose of forming, a railway from Mel bourne to the Uppor Murray and Ovena dis triot; and a session cannot bo said to bo barren daring which a bill of so important a charaotcr has 'been passed. Xhoro was a good deal of debate on tho measure, bat all opposition disappeared before tho strong case mado out in favor of the Government scheme ; for the line proposed is to that portion of the colony which is in the greatest want of railway communication, and which is likely to furnish the best return. Both the Western district and Gipps Land want railways, but the policy of the Government is to make one line at a time. If there is anything like judicious management, the work of railway construction m...
