DISTRESSING ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 December 1865

DISTRESSING ACCIDENT.   A fatal disaster happened in the Ballaarat Bath Company's swimming bath on Wednesday, 13th inst. ' Among the bathers,' says the Star, ' was Mr Giles, of the Globe Inn, Soldiers'-hill, -who jumped in at the deep end. He could swim, though not a strong swimmer ; and as swimmers often dive for a good distance before reappearing, and as they also sometimes play a variety of antics in the water, the other bathers, took no notice of him when be was seen with his arms only above water. But when he was seen to go down again, something wrong was suspected, and an alarm was raised. Mr McCartney (of M'cartney and Aldred) dived for him, and was seized by what was in truth the drowning man. Another person got a ladder, and at length the poor man was got out and medical aid at once procured. This was about six o'clock, and Dr. Richardson, Dr. Wallace, and Surgeons Bunce, Nicholson, and Holthouse were soon in attendance. For over two hours the usual means for r...

A CORONER'S INQUEST AT TALBOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 December 1865

A CORONER'S INQUEST AT TALBOT. The Talbot Leader says:— "The inquest on the   body of Ay Yong, the Chinaman shot at the Emu the other week, promises to prove quite a curiosity in its way. On 5th inst., after Dr. Dixon and Mr Crespigny, P.M., had been examined, and Hon Gee partly so, a juror named, Coombe, the defendant in the impounding case of Cox v Coombe, interrupted the proceedings in such an unjustifiable manner as induced the coroner to send him to gaol for twenty- four hours. The removal of this fractious juryman prevented the inquiry proceeding, and it was there- fore adjourned until the following morning. On Wednesday another hitch occurrod. Coombe, cool and repentant after his incarceration, took his seat   quietly; not so with a juror named Scott, whose   behavior soon attracted the attention of Senior Constable Wood, who called the coroner's atten- tion to the fact that he was drunk. Dr. Dow ordered him to be imprisoned for five day...

THE WOOD-SPLITTERS' HUT IN THE FERN TREE GULLY—SEE PAGE 13. THE WOOD-SPLITTERS' HUT IN THE FERN TREE GULLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 December 1865

THE WOOD-SPLITTERS HUT IN THE FERN TREE GULLY— See page 13. THE WOOD-SPLITTERSyaCTrllS THE FERN TREE GUTiIjY.' The subject of the accompanying engraving ia tolerably well known to the adTonturoua few who haTe explored the recesses of the Dandenong Banges. The most prominent feature in the beautiful scenerv of these ranges has Buffered considerable defacement dnring the last few yoars. Many of the huge Eucalypti, which used to excite the admiration of visitors, have fallen under the woodman's oxo;;nnd such havoc has beon xnado among the fern trees that comparatively few of them remain to give atT adequate idea, of the i enchantment which their graceful frondoge lent to the ' scene. Conspicuously in the illustration may be observed the Eucalypti, still maintaining their upright position, but long since dead and bleached in the sun. The average height of these trees is computed at 800 feet ; one of those on the ground to the left is now over 800 feet, and said to have had about 12 or 1...

CUNNINGHAM'S GAP, QUEENSLAND. The road from Warwick to Ipawioh is diversified by openings in the traoks which exhibit most beautiful rooky and mountain scenery. The illustration chosen by our artist on one of these traoks will giv.e a very fair idea of an opening of this, description, and shows in the distanoo the double-toppod mountain, and whioh forms a conspicuous object on the dividing i tinge and the coarse taken by Allan Cunningham on his botanical exploration in 1826-7.' 'The passes through the dividing range are extremely rich in botanical specimens, including the rarer sorts of ferns which, in the crevices of the rocks, attain grent perfec tion. The stag's-horn fern may be found in luxurious profusion, with it gigantic antlers spreading from the forks of the, Eucalypti, while the long bunging masses of various parasites droop in graceful masses, and entwine' with the' tendrils' ef various species of the wild clematlB.
