THE THAMES RIVER GOLD-FIELD, NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 2 November 1868

THE THAMES RIVER GOLD-FIELD, NEW ZEALAND. Our. correspondent at .the Thames River, to whom we are indebted for the sketch of this comparatively new gold-field, sends us the fol lowing interesting account of the place : — The Thames river is about 44 miles from Auckland. Steamers ply regularly two or three each day, and at suoh hours as the tide will suit for landing at Shortland — the town ship. The trip is performed in from four and a-half to seven hours ; some of the boats — or one, I should say — makes' the passage in four and a-half hours. She has been built here, is a paddle-boat, and is able to carry some 300 persons ; the fare is 7s - 6d, and you spin along in fine style. The views along . the route are very pretty, the islands most picturesque, covered with verdure and foliage of the most delightful rich color- : ing — striking contrasts to the dingy tints of : Australia. The Frith of Thames is a huge ' gulf as large as - Hobson's Bay, and you steam right across it. It is on...

THE EARTHQUAKE WAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 2 November 1868

THE EARTHQUAKE WAVE. The terrific news from the Pacific coast of South America, to whioh additional interest' has been given by the fact that the earthquake made itself visible, although not felt, in Aus tralia, will, it is to be hoped, lead to more careful observation of similar phenomena in this hemisphere. Indeed, the attention already bestowed upon the subject by Mr Ellery, as may be seen from his observations at a late meeting of the Royal Society, may be taken as an assurance that this will be done. These earth-shooks and earth waves are veritable messages from the interior of our globe, and it is not presumptuous to hepe that future ob servers will find a clue to their language, al though we can scarcely ' flatter ourselves that we have more than entered upon its alphabet. It may yet be found, by means of delicate in struments, that violent convulsions suoh as that whioh has (just been experienced shake the whole earth, and that the 'impulse is con veyed by subterranean chann...

THE EARTHQUAKE IN PERU. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 2 November 1868

THE. EARTHQUAKE IN PERU. Oar; engraving in page 8 represents a, scene- in' connection with the earthquake which poonrred lately on the coast of Peru, attended with effeots so widely spread and; terrible, that all towns and villages within a. radius of 150 miles were destroyed, and. every interest, agricultural and commer cial, throughout the country, was ruined. The scene represented is Arica at the moment of the approaoh of the terrible wave whioh ac companied the earthquake. The features of the locality are faithfully depicted, our artist having- been guided by some sketches taken on the spot. It was from. Arica, it will be re membered, we had the most graphic picture of the sad event. The agent of the Pacifio Steam Navigation Company, in his letter to the manager, writes : — ' Into other matters it 'is ? now. useless to enter, as I write under the shadow of a great grief. Arica no longer ex ists. At about 5 o'clock in the afternoon of the 18th we were visited with a tremendous ea...

THE CASE OF THE BEV. JAMES TAYLOR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 2 November 1868

THE CASE OF THE EEV. JAMES TAYLOR. The charges preferred against the Eev. James Taylor, late pastor of the Baptist Churoh, Col lins-street, have now assumed a graver cha racter than' the public were led to anticipate. When first the charges came out in the shape of vague rumors they were! regarded .as exag gerations, -and a hope was entertained that the utmost - of. which he could- be ; guilty might prove to be nothing more than some indiscre tions, for which a verbal rebuke or temporary retirement '-would be sufficient . punishment. To many who had.- known and esteemed Mr Taylor for years it seemed, unlikely that at his time of life he should have fallen suddenly into criminality. ' ' It: seemed to them equally unjikely- that he could have escaped deteotion until now, supposing he bad for a length of time bBen addicted to a course of life incon sistent with his profession. The studied mystification in whioh the charges were involved contributed in no small measure to :v. the genera...

THE TOURNAMENT OP CASTLEMAINE LIGHT HORSE. see page 6. THE TOURNAMENT OF CASTLEMAINE LIGHT HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 2 November 1868

THE TOURNAMENT OF CASTLEMAINE LIGHT HORSE.— SEE PAGE 6.   THE TOURNAMENT OF CASTLEMAINE LIGHT HORSE. 7th. October, was a gala day with the Castle-   maine contingent of our Victorian cavalry     force. Colonel Anderson was present, so were     Captain Stubbs and Lieutenant-Colonel Bull, and the Camp Reserve was grand in all the pageantry of mock warlike display. Nearly sixty of the Prince of Wales Light Horse went through, a variety of difficult evolutions, not as a matter of duty, but as one of pleasure, as a display in some instances of good horse- manship and precision of movement, matters of no small moment to men who may one day have to use the lance at the charge, or maintain a good seat in the saddle,   in a hand-to-hand encounter with some armor- plated foe. It was a creditable exhibition of skill throughout, and although of a semi-mili- tary character in some respects, it was a public...

M'ARTHUR, SHERRARD AND COPELAND'S NEW WAREHOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 2 November 1868

M'ARTHUR, SHERRARD AND COPE-   LAND'S NEW WAREHOUSE.   Visitors entering the city of late by Prince's bridge, or. from the suburbs to the eastward, cannot fail to have noticed an immense struc- ture in course of erection in Flinders-lane. upon the site of the old Prince of Wales Hotel, and towering in a most conspicuous manner above all the surrounding buildings. Many surmises have doubtless been made as to its purposes, and probably most persons have rightly concluded, from its great height and extension rearwards, with the narrowness of frontage, that it is to be a warehouse of some kind, although the ornate nature of the architec ture renders it very dissimilar to the generality of such places in Melbourne. The elegance of the design can bo perceived even in' its present unfinished condition, and will un doubtedly cause it to take rank among our handsomest palaces of trade. The style of ar chitecture is the Romanesque, whioh has been employed with happy ...
