CASTING BELLS AT BALLARAT. At Ballarat, on 19th ult., the casting of. a large bell for the Free Church of England, attraoted to Mr Higgins's foundry a large num ber of ladies and gentlemen to witness the process. The Ballarat Star gives the follow ing sketch of the scene : — ' When the proper time came, the operators threw into the. furnace some 3 owtor so of metal, consisting of old brass engine-dttings and blocks of copper and tin, more fuel was neaped on, the air-drum hummed and buzzed more vigorously, and as the sulphurous flames emitted more and more brilliance the. faces of the spectators were lit up with a ghastly huo, as if they belonged; to a crowd of ghosts huddling together to see a weird scene on the verge of Pandemonium. Presently, after, the chief ministers in the rite had poked and probed vertically and horizontally into the hissing furnace, the metal was pronounced to be ready for the flow. Then the iron ladle was sot beneath the bottom' of. the- furnace, and the mol...

Via Sydney we have papers to the 201b last., from which we extract the following :— CAPTURE OF. A PARTY OF- QUEENITES ? . BY THE EX-PRISONERS. | (From the correspondent of the Southern Cross, 20th October.) About, the end of September a scouring party of friendly natives, under a chief named Earai tlana, wero dispatched by Captain Seighton, R.M., to get information about the ex-pxisonere. They should have been back in three or four days. Fourteen days elapsed, and anxiety for their safety became very great. They were sup posed to be murdered, and there was great ex citement in consequence. A native force of 100 men were preparing on the 14th Inst. to start ia quest of thorn, and the Mohako and other, native allies had been sent for to render assistance. ' ? This news reached Napier on Wednesday last.

THE CASE OF THE REV. JAMES TAYLOR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 9 November 1868

THE'~'CASE^OF' THE BJEV; JAMES TAYLOE. The charges preferred against the Rev. James Taylor, late pastor of the Baptist Church, 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 Bhape 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 indisore 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 bis time of life he should bare fallen suddenly into criminality. It seemed to them equally unlikely that he could have escaped deteotion until now, supposing he ? had for a length of time been addicted to a course of life incon sistent with his profession. The .studied mystification in which the charges ' were involved, contributed in no small measure to the general incredulity...

SUICIDE OF ALICE MAES (MARIE ST. DENIS). [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 9 November 1868

SUICIDE OV ALIOE-^MAES' (MARIE ST.: ? DENIS). Truth is stranger than fiction. Before the realities of life the inventions of the novelist fade' into nothingness. In the brief .brilliant, ' miserable,' terrible career- of the actress whoso .death it is our duty to record, there is com prised material 'from which might be moulded; half a dozen of the heroines Miss Braddon and Mrs Wood have created. Let us glance at that portion of her life which has familarised her to the public. In doing this we have little to do with Alice Moos. That young lady, less than two years ago, was a governess, residing in the neighborhood of Geelong. Her accom plishments (she -was a fluent linguist, a finished musician, and, when Bhe chose, a most agree able companion) were the cause of her intro duction to tbo best society there, and it does not seem that at this time she bad any thought of embracing the stage na a profession. Wearied of the irk Bomeness of teaohing, she resolved on coming - to Melbourne,...

THE UNITED SIR WILLIAM DON GOLD MINING CO., BALLARAT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 9 November 1868

THE UNITED SIR WILLIAM DON GOLD MINING CO., BALLARAT. ' The announcement of the proposed wlnd ing-up of this company, which has made so much nolee'ln the world, and been the parent of so many other mining enterprises in its neigh bourhood, seems to afford a fit opportunity for a 'brief review of its origin and history, and most brilliant, though unfortunately too short-lived suscess. It was in' 1865 that the company got Into an Independent existence, during which year it became an offahoot from the HandIn Hand Co., which was tbon bent upon finding the deep ground of the Inkermann gutter by means of a No. 2 shaft on the site oi the present Park Reserve. -To the Sir Wm. Don Co. was ceded the No. 1 shaft, together with the reef ground embraced within certain limits, which were duly registered. There was nlso banded ovor tho right to mine under the Cricket Reserve ob tained by the Hand nnd Band in 1859. The company' for some time was looked up m as anything but a good thing, and many op...

THE BALLAE AT NATIONAL SHOW. This show, which was held at Ballarat on the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th October, is thus described by The Herald's special correspondent :— . ? If a universal expression of popular opinion maybe taken as a fair criterion, the Ballarat National Show has been ono of the greatest, successes on record, and has. fully answered the purpose ftt which it was initiated. The money receipts at the gate, amounting to L46 on the first day and to L505 the second day, also prove that Ballarat, from its central position, is ? one of if not the bast, places for holding shows of a Bimilar nature. Not only is it the. market town of a large, fruitful, and populous agricultural district;, but it is the natural emporium for all the stock of the wealthy Western district. Agri cultural produce and live stock can alike be forwarded there with facility, and the exhibition of the 23rd proves that both can be brought to a high state of excellence. The show was held at tha cattle yards, n...

THE TOURNAMENT OF CASTLEMAINE LIGHT HORSE. 7th Ootober was a gala day with the Castle maina contingent of our Victorian cavalry force. Colonel Anderson was present, so were Captain Stubba and Lieutenant-Colonel Bull, and the Camp Reserve was grand in all the pageantry of mock warlike display. Nearly aixty 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 preoiaion 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 enoounter with some armor plated foe. It was a creditable exhibition of. ff Trill throughout, and although of a semimili tary oh&acter in some respects, it was a publio performance that will well bear repetition, both to the advantage of the men who tookpart in it, and for the gratification of the publio, who like anyt...
