Destructive Fire in Melbourne. ] !, Damages Estimated at JE2C0.C00. j A FEW minutes after 6 o'clock on Friday evening the largest fire that has ever occurred in Melbourne broke out in the central block of Collins-street, and devastated the magnificent drapery emporium of Messrs. George and George (limited). The fire broke out shortly after the building had been closed, and was noticed by some passers-by. The brigades were soon ou the scene, but there was a smart breeze blowing from the south, and the huge masses of flames rolled up and over the block in a northerly direction. The great music ware- houses of Messrs. Glen and Allan, in Collins-street ; the large furniture warehouse of Messrs. Collis and Hill, in Elizabeth-street, and tbebnildings occupied by Messrs TUalderson, tailors ; Hutchinson, Bleasby, and Atkinson, ironmonger?, and the Melbourne Sports Depot, were almost simultaneously attacked, but the efforts of the firemen, ably directed by Superintendent.

Social [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

Social A LOVE MATCH.-The S. M. Herald's correspon- dent writes :-" The Princess Louise, ' eldest daughter of the Prince of Wales, was married to the Earl ot Fife, KT. It is understood that the marriage is purely and simply a love match. The Earl of Fife has large estates contiguous to those of the Queen at Balmoral. For many years he has been an intimate friend of the Prince of Wales, and a constant visitor at Marlborough House. So an attachment gradually grew between himself and the Princess, and, with the sanction of her parents and of the Queen, he proposed to her at Ascot last month, and was at once accepted. He is 41 years of age, and being an exceedingly wealthy nobleman, with large estates in land and a big fortune in money, he has long been regarded by Belgravian mothers as the great " catch " in the matrimonial market. ' Of course he is much older than the Princess, who is only 23, and yet he appears to be considerably younger than he really is, and one might easily mistake...

Public Meeting at Tynedale. FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889

Public Meeting at Tynedale. FHOM ODS COBBESPONDENT. PURSUANT to advertisement, a public meeting vas held in the Protestant Hall on Monday evening, to consider thennsatisfactory reply of Roads Dei art ment to resolutions passed at a public meeting here some short time back, re the Brushgrove Maclean road. There were 28 persons present, Mr. Chisholm in the chair, and after reading the Departmental reply, he said it was most one-sided, and it said nothing in reference to opening the i road along the river bank from Mr. J. F. Small's ' to Rocky Bend, the principal grievance of the I residents. [ Mr. A. J. MUNRO said it was about 28 years since this road was surveyed along the river bank, that being the time of survey of the land. The road now used was an old one. made in early days by travellers who had to avoid the scrubs on the banks. He knew one man who had a grievance on account of this road (or at least part of it) not being officially opened, and Mr. District Surveyor Donaldson ca...

Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889

Letters to the Editor. THI Editor does not bold himself responsible for opinions .zpressed by correspondents. SIB.-A letter appears in your paper to-day signed " John Bnrns," and in which my name is freely used. The latter part of it is contemptible, if not woree, and other parts of it is untrue. For my own part I would not trouble yon ; but that he connecU others with such, fie says that I sent a request to Mr. M'Farlane to have this 16 by 18 shed erected, and that he heard me ask Mr. Hurley to mettle the road-neither of which is true, nor is either of those gentlemen the proper person to approach for suoh a purpose. The way I read " Bonny Play's " version is tbat the fishermen wished to protect their ice hy putting it in the shed and ice house, which they certainly did. Mr. Burns having connected me with "Bonny Play," the tone of his epistle shows the cause, as stated by " Bonny Play," to be correct. I may, however, for Mr. Burns? information, say that I not only forwarded the fis...

How to Study the Bible. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889

How to Study the Bible. THE following-letter from Mr. Gladstone has been addressed to the leader of a men's Bible-class in Manchester: "It.is wholly ont of my power to reply to your letter in the manner in which its purpose would recommend and its subject requires. But I am un- willing altogether to withhold a few words which may, at any rate, serve as an indication of sympathy with your desire to profit by the treasures of Divine Word. I will not dwell on the need of the light from above, or the duty of seeking it, of being vigilant against the excuses of the private spirit, of cultivating humility, of bearing in mind that God has, through all the long ages, had a people whom he has led : that we are not the first who come to the wells of salvation opened by Christ and His Apostles. I will assume that you are strict adherents of method in this great study, so as to make your results comprehensive. In this view, if you are churchmen, or, indeed, if you are not, I recommend you to co...

The Dock Labor Strike. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889

The Dock Labor Strike. A CABLMBAM informa us that at the demonstration in Hyde Park, which marked the conclusion of the «trike, the most special honour was paid to the Australian flag. It was giren precedence of all other flags in the procession, and on the platform it occupied a posilion of equal prominence, being, we are told, surrounded with flowers. By resolution, also, the thanks of the dock labourers were conveyed to Australia. This spirit of gratitude is naturally very satisfactory to those who contributed to the fund. Through the assistance of Aus- tralia, the dock labourers are to-day victorious, and this has bec-u fully acknowledged. Kany of the strikers repudiate the right of their leaders to pledge them to. an amicable treatment of the non-union work- men. Mr. Burns addressing a meeting of-the men who wera on strike, advised them to be patient, and threatened that if the dock companies violated the agreement they had entered into, he would organise another strike and par...

OUR COASTAL CURRENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889

OUR COASTAL CURRENTS. MB. RUSSELL, the Government Astronomer, has been I «ailing attention to an interesting subject, " Oar ! coastal currents." Mr. RUSSELL quotes from a communication received from Mr. W. E. LANGLEY, of Lord Howe's Island. "Exactly 29 days after you had your first heavy floods on the mainland we had evidence of it here, for cornstalks in quantity began to wash ashore, until the beaches were covered with them. We also had landed in the same way several trunks of red gum trees. As we had no strong west winds here to account for the rapidity with which the debris came across, I am of opinion that a great deal has yet to be learned in reference to our coast currents. Our nearest point of contact with the mainland is Port Macquarie, which is 300 miles due west, so that even if the debris came from there is must haye drifted 10J miles a day in order to reach us." Mr. RUSSELL thinks the light south- west winds were the main cause of the drift of the cornstalks, starting! ...

"IT IS A M. S[?]ERY, INDEED" [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889

"IT IS A Al. S PERY, IXDEEDr A GENTLBMAN residing in South Australia having made some enquiries respecting the North Coast and Tableland districts, expresses wonder and surprise that districts with such capabilities as they possess, should be so grossly neglected in respect to harbours and communication with the interior. Had such districts, he says, been within South Australian territory, railways would have been constructed long ago, and cities, probably equal to Newcastle or Brisbane, would have been in existence. Considering the fertility of the land, and the nature of the climate, he holds that man's delay in utilising' those natural advantages to the full is a sin against that struggling and starving humanity congregated in such large cities as Sydney, and the great cities of Europe and America. Contrasting these districts with the districts of South Australia, he says : :i In those districts we have only an average of about 13 inches of rainfall per annum ; no rivers, and the...
