DEATH OF MR. AMBROSE KYTE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 December 1868

DEATH OF MR. AMBROSE KYTE. We have to chronicle, with feelings of regret, the death of Ambrose Kyte, which took place on the I6th November, at his residence, Lygon- street, Carlton. He had been ailing for some time, and confined to his bed, with inflamma- tion of the right lung. His medical atten- dants were Drs. Gillbee, Motherwell and Bird, but their efforts were unavailing to arrest the disease, which there is reason to believe was somewhat aggravated by the mental anxiety he has undergone during some weeks past, owing to pecuniary difficulties. He was a very old colonist, having arrived here in 1840 ; and a man of his' active temperament soon     found employment, the moderate salary he ob- tained as a brewer's laborer sufficing for his requirements. Two or three years later he   had, by his frugal habits, contrived to save a sufficient sum of money to commence business for himself in a hay and corn store where Kyte's Buildings are now erec...

OUB EPISCOPAL VISITORS. . We had no fewer than three . bishops preaching in Melbourne on ' Sunday, the 8th November. The Bishop of Liohfield preaohed at . St. James's in the forenoon ; Christ Church, Sooth Yurra, in the afternoon'; and St. Mary's, Hotham, in the evening. The Bishop of. Wellington preaohed at Trinity Church in the morning, and at St. Peter's in the evening. The announcement that the Bishop of Lichfield was, to preach at St. James's Church drew a large number to that place of worship on Sunday morning. The crowd was so large that it was impossible to find accommodation for all in the pews, and the forms which were- intro? duced into the aisles were occupied as fast os I they wero deposited. .

THE BANYAN TBEB (FIOUS MIORO PHYLLA) OF TANNA, NEW HEBBIDES. For this sketch and description wo are in debted to Mr Gailfoyle, who states : — ' Dur ing,' the stay of H.M.S. Challenger at Port Besolution, in the island of Tanna, New He brides, I had. a ramble to the volcano, which is situated about six miles inland, and, amongst other new and ornamental trees, I met with a speoieB of fig, which I have ventured to name fieus microphylla, or the banyan tree of Tanna. One meets with few trees in the island that attain a greater height than this - mest interesting object. The specimen, of which we give a representation, on page 1, 1 - sat beneath for half-an-honr, in spite of my native guides indicating te me by signs to hurry on to the burning mountain, as it was getting late. I measured this singular tree, and found its girth to be 45 feet round the trunk ; its width, from the extremes of the opposite branches, as near as I could judge, was nearly 260 feet ; its height 100 feet.

THE NUNTIN TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 December 1868

THE NUNTIN TRAGEDY.   From THE GIPPS LAND. TIMES, NOVEMBER 14.] The public mind had hardly, been diverted from the unpleasant contemplation of the Shady Creek murder, when the inhabitants of Sale, Stratford and Maffra were startled by the report of one of the most horrible and revolt ing tragedies whioh has ever occurred in Gipps Land, and which finds few parallels in the Australian colonies. On Wednesday afternoon, between three and four o'clock, information was brought into Sale that a man named Daniel Cuddihy, a packer residing at Nuntin, and who had always been distinguished as a disagreea ble member of society and for extreme violence of temper, had, on the road between the Nun tin and the Stratford bridgoes, cut his wife's throat, shot a man named Croft dead, and as a sequel to the double murder, had committed suicide by drowning himself in a waterhole within a few hundred yards of the scene of the diabolical perpetration. Those acquainted with the murderer and su...

ST. MAEY'S EPISCOPALIAN OHUBOH. During Iho post few yean there have been many large and handsome church baildinga erected in Melbourne and its immediate suburbs bythe.varioua religions denominations, and in most instances the churches have been altogether or nearly cleared of deist by the time they were opened for publio worship ; thus affording an undoubted proof that amid all the bustle of the commercial affairs of a young and thriving oolony, the people still hold to the re ligions principles under which they were in stracted, and by liberal contributions and do nations, Bhow clearly that religon is not merely with them an empty profession. The Church of St. Mary's, Eotham, of which we give an engraving in this issue, was opened for Divine service, after being enlarged by the addition of the ? transepts and chancel, on Sunday, the 8th inst., the servioes being conducted by the Lord Bishop of Lichfield (England), the Bev.
