AGRICULTURAL AND HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY'S SHOW, GEELONG. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 9 November 1868

AGRICULTURAL AND HORTICULTU- RAL SOCIETY'S SHOW, GEELONG. The annual exhibition of the Geelong and   Western District Agricultural and Horticultural Society took place on 15th ult., at the show-yards in Geelong. and appeared to create some Interest amongst the inhabitants of the 'sleepy hollow,' where an 'event' is of such rare occurrence   that the opportunity to turn out and make holi- day is turned to the best advantage. During tho early part of the afternoon the richly, pastured streets of the town became more than usually deserted, and the show-yards evidently the centre of attraction. There, inside the fence and outside, was congregated what for Geelong might be described as a large crowd, in which the different interests, agricultural, horticultural, and bucolic, were well represented. The local volunteer band was in attendance on the ground, and those who did not care to view the fat and sleepy pigs, the cows, or the agricultural implements, could c...

KING THAKAMBAU. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 9 November 1868

KING THAKAMBAU. This potentate, who is now acknowledged as King of Fiji, is in reality only a leading chief, who.was brought prominently beforo the public   by reason of being the ruler of that portion of tbe largest island on which the principal harbour of . the group is situated, and on which most of the European settlers are located. He it was who proposed tbe cession of the group to the English Government, provided they would pay a sum of     money, claimed as indemnity, to tbe United States Government, for outrages perpetrated by the islanders on American citizens. In the correspndence with the Home authorities, Tha kambau was treated as a sovereign, and he has   since accepted the honours of the title, though it seems he is powerless to enforce his authority. The king and most of his subjects have been converted from heathenism by the efforts of the Wesleyan missionaries, whose opinions he always   consults on an...

THE THAMES RIVER GOLD-FIELD, NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 9 November 1868

THE THAMES RIVER GOLD-FIELD, NEW ZEALAND. Our correspondent at the Thames River, to whom we are indebted for the sketch of this comparatively new gold-field, sends us the fol lowing interesting account of the place : — The Thames river is about 44 miles from Auckland. Steamers ply regularly two or three eaoh day, and at such hours as the tide will suit for landing at Shortland — the town ship. The trip is performed in from four and a-half to seven, hours ; some of the boats — or one, I should say— make the passage in four and a-half hours. She has been built here, is a paddle-boat, and is able to carry some 800 persons ; the fare is 7s 6d, and you spin along in fine style. The views along the route are very pretty, the islands most picturesque, covered with verdure, and foliage of the most delightfully rich color ing — striking contrasts to the dingy tints of Australia. The Frith of Thames is a huge gulf as large as Hobson's Bay, and you steam right across it. It is only possible to...

M'ARTHUR, SHERRARD AND COPE-LAND'S NEW WAREHOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 9 November 1868

McARTHUR, SHERRARD AND COPE LAND'S NEW WAREHOUSE. Visitors entering the city of late by Prince's bridge, or from the suburbs to the eastward, cannot fail to have noticed an immense struo tare in course of erection in Flinders-lane, npon the site of the old Prince of Wales Hotel, and towering in a most conspicuous manner above all the surrounding buildings. Many surmises have doubtless been made as to its purposes, and probably most persons have rightly concluded, from its great height and extension rearwards, with the narrowness of frontage, that it is to be a warehouse of some lrind, although the ornate nature of the architec ture renders it very dissimilar to the generality of sacli places in Melbourne. The elegance of the design can be perceived even in its present unfinished condition, and will un doubtedly cause it to take rank among our handsomest palaces of trade. The style of ar chitecture is the Romanesqe, which has been employed with happy effect in embellishing a vast obl...

SPBING SHOW OF THE SMEATON, SPBING HILL AND BULLABOOK ASSOCIATION. The engraving on page 13 depiots the Spring Show of the Smeatbn, Spring Hill and Bnlla rook Association held during the present month.' The yards cover over six acres of ground and are divided into three nearly equal proportions. Around the first yard are exten sive sheds, one of which was filled with sad dlery and .harness, and another with dairy produce. Along two Bides - of the yard-thig£ dogs found accommodation under canvas awnings specially erected. In the body of the yard were arranged in good order the im plements and machinery, of which, considering the distance of the locality and the badness' of the roads, the display was satisfactory. Thoro were several thrashing machines worked by steam and horse power, and agricultural machi nery of every description. 'Afeatnre of the Bhow was the exhibition of dogB, which proved an attraction, and in the farther yard the horse and cattle stock were located. The show wa...

NEWS FROM WANGANUI. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 December 1868

NEWS. FROM WANGANUI The- Eangatiro, arrived here . (Wellington) this morning. . ' . Patea and other settlements have been aban doned. It is said the troops generally are dis contented, and there is a want of confidence in the friendly natives. 120 dismounted cavalry from Auckland arrived at .Wanganui by the JtaDgatira, and farther reinforcements are ex - peoted. Business is suspended at Wanganui. The Governor and Mr Stafford left for Wan ganui yesterday morning. A meeting is to be held this . afternoon to consider the present state of tho oolony. A public demonstration is likely to result. Serious complaints are made regarding the manner, in which the volunteers at the front have been treated in tbe matter of rations. During the voyage of 127 of the armed. con- stabulary from Wellington to Wanganui, the men were kept for forty-one hours without a proper supply of food, . and would have been starved had not three sheep been ..obtained by the captain at Kapiti. The men naturally looke...

THE ECHIDNA, OR AUSTRALIAN PORCUPINE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 December 1868

THE ECHIDNA, OR AUSTRALIAN PORCUPINE. This curious ani mal) which ia 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 spines are of a light straw color, beautifully barred and pointed with black ; they are ' capillary in structure, and highly sensitive, and, 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 cupine and hedgehog.,.. Like them, it bnrrows '' iu th,e ; ground by mean's: of its strong claws, and lives on worms, insects, ten der roeta, wild fruits, tints, flies, &o. It is of the edentata family, and has no teeth, and procures its food by means of its tongue, which is well adapted for the purpose of capturing flies, ants, and other insects, being covered with a visc...

RIVER WAIAU, OTAGO. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 December 1868

RIVER WAIAU, OTAGO. Oar engraving represents a beautiful view on the river Waiau, whioh divides the south western portion of Otago from Southland, issuing out of Te-Anan Lake, and flowing into the sea at Towywy's Bay. From the outlying districts through whioh it runs being diffloult of access, that portion of the country is only oooupied as sheep and cattle runs, al though the land is admirably suited for agri culture. The Waiau is a very rapid flowing river, if not the swiftest in New Zealand, and it contains a greater body of water than the Mojyneux, but the length of the river is not so great. So swift is the flow of this immense body of water that it takes four men to poll a boat aoross in ordinary times. The country in whioh the Waiau takes its rise is very wild and picturesque. Being situated not far from the West Coast, attempts have been made to cross the ranges dividing the interior of the country from the sea; but we believe no one has succeeded in the attempt, the mountai...

A STRANGE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 December 1868

A STRANGE STORY. One of those tragic stories which in the early 1 days characterised digging life1 in Victoria is likely to be revived with the discovery of the , human remains alluded to in a former issue of this journal, as having been found at Elm hurst. ? It appears that some of the surround- ' ings of the skeleton have been recognised, or have led to the belief that they belonged to a squatter named Young, who ? was murdered, bat, of whose remains no trace was ever dis covered;! thus leading to the supposi tion that the' body of the unfortunate man - had been burnt by his assassins. The facts ap pear to be briefly these : — About ten or twelve years ago, a flook of abont 1200 sheep was travelling in the neighborhood of Mount Cole — on their way to a diggings market — when the scab appeared amongst them, and leave was obtained to dip them on Mount Cole station. There were throe men in oharge of the flook — the port proprietor Young, a shepherd named Coleman (who had once been a ...

However, as it is a subject of much importance, whatever facts can be collected as to the course, speed, height, and momentum of the mighty earthquake wave, ought not to pass unrecorded.

TARRING AND FEATHERING A JUMPER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 December 1868

TARRING AND FEATHERING A JUMPER. A case of tarring and feathering, .whioh occurred at Chines, on 12tn November is thus reported :— ' Some, time ago, th'e^ew. North' Glunes Company held its claim . under two leases, and about tho time tho ground was proved, the company thought to make itself moreseoure by applying, for a new lease to cover the two already held. This was granted; and the document arrived a few days ago, but is. considered by some knowing, ones to be faulty1, and the claim has therefore been applied for by.persons holding a sufficient number of miners' rights. 'That dispute it was decided to allow to be settled in a quiet manner, but ano ther attempt to deprive the company of some of the property it has so long held has been differently treated. There is a blook of 1000 feet, which some say is not included in the leaaeB at all, and early on the 12th November, Mr John Black and Mr Truswell, of Ballarat, accompanied by Mr Stevenson, mining surveyor for the division, proc...
