MR. STEPHEN DONOVAN. J.P. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 9 November 1868

MR. STEPHEN DONOVAN. J.P.'' Death is rapidly thinning the ranks of our old colonists. Mr Stephen Donovan, J.P., expired on 14th ult., in his 46th year; and few of those who have been disappearing will be mourned with more sincere regret. Mr Donovan was a native of Cork. He was eminently a self-made man. He accompanied his parents to Sydney in 1837, being then a young lad, and was soon after wards apprenticed to a' builder. Having served his time1, he worked assiduously at his business for some years in Sydney. He came to Victoria in 1847, still occupied in the building trade, but on the dis covery of gold he proceeded to the diggings, where he was particularly fortunate. Having next invested in a hotel, he continued to prosper, not having been long in the hojbel business till he was able to dispose of it on terms whioh rendered him virtually inde pondent. Possessing a genjal-^tdisposition, accompanied by calm good sense, Mr Dono van not only won many warm friends ,but soonred the es...

GOOD NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 9 November 1868

GOODNIGHT. Our engraving,- represents ona of (( those quiet incidents in domestic life, interesting without tbe slightest tendency to exciting senaation. In a tiny bed in a. not over well furnished room, covered with one of those patch work quilts so common In English cottages, lies a fine healthy blooming child, tbe little fair head gently depressing the pillows, and the small childish, delicately formed band appearing from under the bedclothes. The little, one has evi dently just finished the nightly prayer that God may bless and keep bis parents— -one probably absent— and is receiving the last kiss before going to sleep. Over him, with one hand resting slightly on the edge of the cot, and the other holding a candle, leans the mother, peering fondly into the childish face, as if seeking : to trace in the childish features some resemblance to a face even dearer— some look of him to whom her life has been tied. A few momenta more and the 'Good night' will havebeeu uttered, the last ...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. BALLARAT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 9 November 1868

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE, BAIXARAT. The Mechanics' Institute of Ballarat Is note worthy In several respects. Commenced long after the date of the Melbourne and Geelong Institutes, It has now, in the ninth year of its existence, a larger number of members than either, and a greater Income than both com bined. Great as has been the progress of this lnatttutien hitherto, there are abundant proofs that 11 Is yet in Its Infancy. Even the ex tensive and costly additions now being made will not more than provide for the immediate wants and requirements of the district. Should Bal larat continue to advance at its present rate of progression, not many years will elapse ere the Mechanics' Institute must also extend its boundaries. When the present works are com pleted, tbe institute wiil rival some national undertakings of the same class In its extent and completeness. The library, which already con sist* of nearly 7000 volumes, will bo placed In a room of magnificent proportions, with ample ?pac...

THE ECHIDNA, OR AUSTRALIAN PORCUPINE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 9 November 1868

THE ECHIDNA, OR AUSTEALIAN PORCUPINE. This, curious ani mal, which 10 com monly known by the name of the Austra lian porcupine or ant eater, resembles (and is ' a congener of) the European hedge hog. Its opines are of a light straw color, beautifully barred and pointed with black; they are capillary in structure, and highly sensitive, an d , com pared with those of the hedgehog, they are longer 'and stronger, and as large , as a goose quill at the base. The echidna, although smaller than the 'porcupine, is a much larger animal than the hedgehog. Its habits, food, and mode of life are nearly the same as the por oapino and hedgehog. Iiiie them, it burrows in the ground by means of its strong , claws, and lives on worms, insects, ten der roots, wild fruits, ants, flies, &c. It is of the edentate family, and.has no teetb, and procures its food by means of its tongue, which ia well adapted ! for the purpose of capturing flies, ants, and. ?. other insects, being covered with a. vi...

FITZROY GARDENS, MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 9 November 1868

FITZROY GARDENS, MELBOURNE. Melbourne is abundantly provided with public parks' and gardens ; and were we disposed to expatiate with patriotic enthusiasm on the surpassing merits' of everything Melbournian, we might easily find iu 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 attraotiveness ; . while they have this advnn? tago, that they are noarer 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, stooked with all sorts! of ornamontal trees, . reticulated with running' water, which keeps the- grass ever : green and the shrubs umbrageous, and is intersected im all directions with broad and well-kept avenues. Our view, whioh is token from the Eastern hill, presents the main avenue, and includes, some of t...

REVIEW. Sewage Matters, by J. Fielding Higgins, Civil Engineer. Melbourne : H. G. De Grucby and Co. . A stato of things exists in Melbourne In the direction of sewage matters tbat must startle even the most careless. We are, no doubt, a rapidly advancing people, a people with go-ahead ten dencies to any extont— a people with o capital city of , (for ita age) extraordinary growth, with theatres,, public .buildings, broad streets, etc. ; but, at the. same time, we nre a people with a system, or rather want of system, regarding the disposition of our sewage ' that would disgrace nearly the dirtiest Arab village on record. The matter has been talked about, written about, and suggested about for years, but nothing has been done, and night after night the unfortunate who is compelled for his sins to walk tbe streets after midnight, is put through a course of olfac tory purgatory sufficient, at any rate, to so some distance in the way of expiation.
