A VISIT TO THE MELBOURNE MEAT—PRESERVING CO.'S WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 9 November 1868

A VISIT TO THE MELBOURNE MEAT PRESERVING CO.'S WORKS. An extremely tine day, a capital horse, a civil Jehu, and a car loud of the 'lords of the soil,' together with an excellent lunch, made the jaunt about to be described by no means an un pleasant one. Although the car was freighted, pretty heavily too, for these squatting lords were men of weight, ns previously mentioned, there was one individual who had no pretensions to be ranked amongst that class ; and as cabby does ? net write this, it must be— well, for the matter of that, a poor scribbler, and the reader's very humble servant.

THE VICTORIA. REGIA. The following Is the latter portion of a very Interesting paper read by Dr. Schomburgk before the Philosophical Society of South Ans tralit ob thla magnificent watorllly :— 'I will now give, in a few words, the his tory of the Victoria Regia, in the Victoria* house of the Botanic Gordon. By the April mall I received from Germany in a letter thirteen geeda of the celebrated plant, contained in a little phial of pure water hermetically sealed. Had the contents of this letter been known at the Post-office, probably the officers of the Post office Department might have refused the letter, and we should then have been without this highly valued plant. As aoon as the seeds came into my possession I sacrificed one of them to convince myself of their vitality; the trial, to my great joy, proved a success. They were ?own on the 14th of April. Fourteen days after, being very anxious for their success, I sacrificed another seed to test their vitality, and found that they w...

FEARFUL EARTHQUAKE AND TIDAL WAVE AT ARICA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 9 November 1868

FEARFUL EARTHQUAKE AND TIDAL WAVE AT- ARICA. Our artist has given a vivid and life-like representation of the destruction caused at Axica, in Peru, . by the recent tidal wave. Arlca, the capital town of the Department of Arica, in Peru, is situated close to the shore of a small bay about 650 miles south-east from Lima. In the old days it was d rich and popu lous town— so rich that In 1679 Sir Francis Drake thought it worth his while to plunder It ; tut frequent earthquakes, especially the heavy . one in 1855, have well-nigh ruined it. A popu lation of 36,000 decreased at one time to 5000, its want of progress being increased by the diffi culty of the approach from the sea. At one time landing, except in bulsas, or native boats made 6i Inflated skins, was impossible; but since the erection of a landing place and the establish ment of a railway connecting the town with the city of Tacna, forty miles to the north, its pro sperity hBB increased, and the population at the time of the lat...
