' The following episode,' says the Ballarat Star, ' teaohes a lesson to folks/who are some what too proud of their nnanoial greatness. A wealthy and Btill highly successful mining speculator, whose cheque for a very large sum would be considered perfectly good, has just had over £1000 worth of shares forfeited for non-payment of calls. And this is how it happened — Wealthy shareholder allowed a call ' to become overdue, and the manager of the com pany chancing to meet him in tho street - politely reminded him of the fact. The ma nager was startled by being asked to go some whero out of tho world or to be utterly con founded, and was told if he ever dared to insult wealthy shareholder by asking him for money in the stroot ho would report him to the board. The manager was silenced and made a strong resolution not to ropeat tho insult, either in the street or at nil, whether verbally or in writing.

IMPROVED STATIONS IN RIVERINA. BoNDunE and Widqibwa.

INTERIOR OF THAKOMBAU'S H0USE. Ferhaps the place of greatest interest in Fiji is the residence of the king ; certainly one of the finest pieces of native architecture and workmanship in the gronp. It is of enormous proportions, and supported by massive pillars. Although so large as to hold 2000 people, yet it looks comfortable. There are several hand some pieces of furniture in it, but the luxury of INTERIOR OF THAKAMBAU'S HOUSE. INTERIOR OF THAKAMBAU'S HOUSE. reclining on the clean and raised mats is pre ferred to chairs.

The queen lives in a smaller house adjoining, and is a lady of high rank, and certainly of weight, for she cannot be less than sixteen, perhaps eighteen stone.

SPECIMENS OF FIJIAN POPULATION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 2 November 1868

SPECIMENS OF FIJIAN POPULATION. The population of the Fiji Islands has been stated by Commodore Wilkes, of the United States Exploring Expedition, at 183,500, but it is rapidly diminishing. The natives are generally above the middle height, well made, and of great variety of figure. The chiefs and chief women are usually of enormous size, and are easily recognised by a stranger after a short time on shore. The boy and girl repre sented on page 9 are good specimens of the middle classes of the islands. The boy is about nineteen and the girl about fourteen. Neither of them have chief blood, hence their being below the stature allotted to the Jiaut-ton. The youth is wearing a coral riecklaco, fronr whioh is suspended a very rare shell. The cross denotes a follower of the Lotu Pope, or Ro man Catholic religion, the leaders of whom are the French priests. The majority of the natives, however, are Protestants, having been converted from heathenism by Wosleyan mis sionaries and are convert...

MR PABKES AND THE ALLEGED ASSASSINATION PLOT. The following comprises , that portion of lor Parkes's speech to his constituents at Jam jeroo, referring to the alleged plot to as ' sassinate the Duke of Edinburgh : — ?? When he was last before his constituents he ' made one or two statements whioh appeared to create some anxiety in men's minds, and whioh had given rise to all manner of rumors.' Every per son who had the ability to' coin a pretty little story had coined some pretty little story hi consequence, and while some persons had hinted - that possibly he might be;' - too credulous, yet he found on all hands ' per. sons so credulous that they weuld believe any story, however monstrous, if it were thought calcu lated in any way to gratify the public mind. The two statements made by him when laBt before nis constituents were — and he thought he could remember them faithfully — that the Government had reason to suppose that some attack would bo made upon his Royal Highness, the Du...

FIJI AND THE FIJIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 2 November 1868

FIJI AND THE FLTIANS. . ? 'v The great interest felt just now in all mat tew connected with the Fiji Islands has in ?' daoed ns to present oar readers with some engravings, for which we are indebted to the pencil of F. A. Franklin, Esq., a gentleman ?who has just completed a tour of the group. The attention which has recently been drawn towards Fiji is very much owing to the move ments of a company formed in Melbourne for the purpose of promoting settlement in the , islands, and developing their resources. In con , sideration of paying the debt duo by Thakombau to the American Govern ment, they hare received : tracts of land in the large islands ; and they under take to give intending settlers land at reason able rates, and offer varionB other facilities for cultivation and com merce. We believe a very important era is dawning for Fiji ; and we are re joiced to find our fellow colonists are emigrating in such numbers as must ultimately be of benefit to . this colony, in giving us, i...

T-SE-^NBTTSTRTAi; SCHOOLS! . One of oar contemporaries, notorious for what we may charitably term over-oourageous assertion, -Las jaBt transcended many of ita, former efforts iu an article on the Industrial Schools. The gist of the article is that the Prinoe's-bridge branch, where there are seve ral hundred female children, is unfit for habitation, infested by rats, which bite the children's hair and feet, and thick with other vermin ; but that bad as the children are . there, the ' Minister of Education' is about, making them still worse, having resolved upon forthwith transferring them to the hulks.. Sussex, Deborah and Sacramento. A lugu brious (and very stupid) picture is then drawn of the poor little female paupers, de prived of their play -ground — 'separated even from their few friends and relatives,' and ' practically excluded from the world.' All this is so extremely touching that one muBt regret the abBenoa of the vital element of truth.. Defective as the Prince's -bridge ...

FITZROY GARDENS. MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 2 November 1868

FITZROY GARDENS. MELBOURNE. . , Melbourne is amply provided with public parks and gardens; and were we disposed to expatiate with patriotic enthusiasm on the surpassing merits «f everything Melbournian, we might easily find in the beauty of some of these reserves ample ground for praise. The Fitzroy Gardens are second only to the Bo tanical Gardens, in extent, beauty and general attractiveness ; while they have this advan tage, that they are nearer to the city. The public are indebted to Mr Hodgkinson, Assist ant Commissioner of Lands and Survey, for the conversion of what was not long ago a ..waste blank into a delightful retreat. The ground is tastefully laid out, stocked with all sorts of ornamental trees, reticulated with running water, which keeps the grass ever green and the shrubs umbrageous, and is interseoted in all directions with broad' and well-kept avenues. Our view, whioh is taken from the Eastern bill, presents the main avenue, and includes some of the prominent build...

A booth was ereoted for the weighing, and the pavilion was converted into a temporary public for. the refreshment of the inner man. There was a little of everything going on from thimblerigging upwards. Betting found occupation for the books on a limited scale. The day was dolightfally fine, and from the carriages an excellent view of a very pretty country, as well as the races, was obtained. There can be no question that steeplechases find more favor when seen over a natural hunt ing country instead of an artificially made course, and in the present in...
