BURNING OF THE SHIP LODA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 24 March 1866

BURNING OF THE SHIP LODA. On Tuesday, 20th February, great cons teriation, and exoltoineht was created in Brisbane! by the receipt of a tolograni from Gladstone, stating that the Suionia, stoamer, while on her ^passage from. Sydney to (3tlad stone, had passed a large' American-built ship on firo near Xady Elliott's Island. ,. This was the wholo of the iniqrmatioii then transmitted, ?:. and 'from this it was surmised that the ship was an immigrant vussel bound to some brie of the northern ports of the colony. The greater probability was given to this conjecture by theifact that' the' Snltana from Liverpool . to Her vey's Bay ywas due, and might have been sighted in the neighborhood above mentioned. It may bo readily imagined what distress and anxiety would be ' felt by those who expected friends and relatives among her five hundred and fifty-eight passengers. On tho fol lowing evening, however, a telegram was received from Maryborough, which put an end io all doubts as to the name an...

BARFOLD FALLS, CAMPASPE RIVER.—[FROM A DRAWING BY ABRAHAM LINCOLNE, ESQ.]—SEE PAGE 10.       BARFOLD FALLS, CAMPASPE RIVER. The romantic locality in which these falls are situated lies to the north of Kyneton, about twelve   miles, and is a very favorite resort for the elite of   that district for holding pic-nics and fishing excur-     sions. It forms part of the boundary between the   magnificent property of the hon. W. H. F. Mitchell and Green-hills Common, and is the lowest fall on the river. The country is of a basaltic formation, and has three distinct strata, conjointly about 250 feet   thick. There is evidence, of deep ground in the neighborhood, from the fact that the sandstone rocks crop up nearly to the level of the basalt plains, both below and above the falls. The richest pasture sur-     rounds this spot; and, although the kanga...

THE LATE MR. JOHN DELL, OF LAUNCESTON, TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 24 March 1866

THE LATE MR JOHN DELL, OF LAUNCESTON, TASMANIA. In the first member of the Australasian Monthly Review, which, appeared on the   1st of the month, there is a lively article on   Tasmania, its scenery, people and prospects. Referring to the number of old people one meets with in the 'tight little island,' the writer thus speaks of a venerable patriarch whom he met at Launceston : —   "It brought one face to face with a   remote antiquity to talk to a man who had been born when George the Third was in the prime of life, and when Mr George Washington was hunting foxes, or shooting canvas-back ducks, or leading out the   young ladies of Annapolis to dance, in company with Lord Fairfax and other English   gentlemen in America. It seemed a sort of anachronism to be conversing, in the     year 1864, with a person who remembered a time when the United States were a   dependen...

SALE OF MR HURTLE 'FISHER'S STUD ?'OF -RACEHORSES. ' - ^ -: The breaking up of the far-famed horse training and breeding establishment of - -Mr Hurtle Fisher, which has been announced for some time past as about to take place, by an auction sale, was accomplished on the 10th inst., on the .domain of Maribyrnong. ; Strictly speaking, it was one of those occurrences which fall within the general category of sporting events, and, as such, claims prominent notice rather at the hands of the professedly sporting portion ' of the press than in the columns of a goneral newspaper. But on the other side it may be said that the stud which has in this instance been broken up was organised upon so large a scale, and at so high a. cost, as to render it an in stitution of national importance. Whatever may be said of the merits or domorits of horse racing, it cannot be questioned that the introduction of some of the best blood stock in -the world must of ne cessity improve the horses of the colony,...

The bullock-dray and: carts formed the baok-ground ; in the fore ground smoked the blazing log or camp fire, be side which stood the sturdy cook; while seated on the grass were sixteen sporting gentlemen, from Melbourne, deciding who should be their oaptain.
