FIRE IN BEECH WORTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1866

FIRE IN BEECH WORTH. On 2nd inst. a fire broke out in Beech worth in broad daylight, and as it consumed all it could possibly take hold of, the wind being as it was, we would, if we were sifted with inspiration, say that this is the last warning Beech worth will receive. About five o'clock the fire-bell rang, and it was soon found that there was something more than a chimney on fire. A chimney, it is supposed, but at all events a kitchen at the back of the last cottage of those   known as Mrs Abbott's property, took fire ; and, although the alarm was immediately given, the main cottages were soon in a blaze. The buildings were situate at the corner of Church and Last streets ;   and there were most decidedly endangered by the conflagration, Mr Dyer's brewery in one direction, and the whole town in the other. Providence, or   the regular course of events, directed the wind to blow away from the neighboring buildings, otherwise no man could say w...

DESTRUCTIVE CONFLAGRATION IN HOBSON STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1866

DESTRUCTIVE CONFLAGRATION IN HOBSON STREET.               A most destructive fire occurred on Friday, 26th January, about eleven, o'clock at night, , in Hobson street, commencing in two new two-story shops erected for Mr M'Clusky, engineer, and which were fast ap— proaching completion. The discovery of the existence of the fire appears to have been made by a person who was passing by the shops at a quarter to eleven p.m., when he detected flames issuing from, underneath the flooring. He at once gave the alarm by ring— ing the Hobson-street firerbell, and the ominous warning was quickly taken up by other bells in the city. Before, any steps could be taken,however, to prevent the flumes, spreading, the whole of the lower portion of the shops was in a bla '. e, and the inhabi— tants of the adjoining houses on each side, who were roused from their beds on the alarm being given, bad little time lef...

BOILER EXPLOSION AT NO. 1 SHAFT, BAND OP HOPE COMPANY'S MINE.

VICTORIAN RIFLE ASSOCIATION. FIRST DAY, THURSDAY, 25TH JANUARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1866

VimoM AN BIFL-is ASSOCIATION. FIRST DAY, THURSDAY, 25th JANUARY. Tha sixth meeting of the Victorian Rifle Asso ciation opened most favorably on Thursday. Thanks to the spirited conduct of the committee of manage ment, there is little fear of this institution failing from lack of energy on the -part of the promoters. A goodly list of entries for the various matches has rewarded their exertions, and there is every reason to believe that, in a pecuniary point of view, the, meeting will have an advantage over its pre deeepSjp. The weather, Thursday, in the vioinity of Xtfie-' butts, was very boisterous. It , blew what landsmen would call half a gale, or seamen a cap-full, and the shooting was consequently all astray. To this reason is attributed the comparatively small totals made nt the 200 yards and 500 yards ranges. Considering the drawbacks, the scores of our crack riflemen were favorable. The popularity of the 'coming man' at the last meeting has led to its continuation; and the ' ...

FATAL BOILER EXPLOSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1866

On that day Mr Howe, a well- known and extesnive agriculturist, commenced thrashing his crops, consisting of two large stacks       of wheat and three of oats.

HASTINGS AND FRENCH ISLAND WESTERN PORT BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1866

HASTINGS AND FRENCH ISLAND, WESTERN PORT BAY.   For a week's good shooting, or for a quiet retreat during the hot weather where one can indulge in dolce far niente, free from the bustle of city life, commend us to Western Port Bay. The distance from Mel-   bourne to that part of the bay which is nearest to the city is about forty-two miles. The journey may be accomplished by coach or steamer to Snapper Point, thirty miles, and thence by special conveyance twelve miles further to that part of the bay just referred to. It is but a small   fishing village, variously designated King's Creek, Tyabb, or Hastings. Strictly speaking, King's Creek is the older name, imposed upon the locality by a family who settled there at an early date ; Tyabb is the name of the Government township, and Hastings   the name of the private township adjoining. Here   kangaroo hunting in perfection can be enjoyed if the visitor is so inclined; or...
