THE ALBATROSS (DIOMEDEA EXULANS, LINN.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 December 1868

THE ALBATROSS (DIOMEDEA EXU LANS. LINN.) The name albatross is a word apparently corrupted from the Portugese Aloatraz, whioh was applied by the early navigators of that nation to cormorants and other large sea birds. Every one who has rounded either the Gape of Good Hope or Gape Horn is familiar with the albatross. He knows how the appearance of a dozen or so in the wake of a ship breaks the monotony of the voyage, and how muoh aauwe ment is afforded by at tempts to catch them with a baited hook. The wandering alba tress is the largest sea bird known. Its weight has been vari ously stated from 12 to 28 lb ; and a simi lar difference of opi nion seems to exist as to the distance be tween the extremities of the extended wings. One say« 10 feet, an other 11, another 12, and some go as far as 17. This noble bird is most abundant be tween the 30th and 60th degrees of south latitude, and appears to be equally nume rous in all parts of the ocean bounded by those degrees. ' I feel assured,...

THE EARTHQUAKE WAVE.

W. B. Clarke appeared, and as it comprised all, arid more than I could say oh the matter, it prevented me from forwarding what I had written. However, . as. it is a subject of much importance, whatever facts can be collected as to the course, speed, height, arid momentum of the mighty earthquake wave, ought not to pass unrecorded. We have still to receive accounts from many of the' groups to the eastward. I fear that the low lagoon is lands, whioh rise only five or six feet above high water mark, may have been swept as...

The prospects washed up . from the extreme ends of the lead vary but little in quality. Tbe washdirt contains gold for three feet in height, and in some olaima will give two ounces per -load for one foot in height, the re mainder paying fairly for puddling.

?- THE BUSH AT WARANGA. A correspondent of the ^e'ndigo Independent, 'writing from Moonlight Flat, Spring Greek, with .'the view of correcting erroneous state ments wnich have appeared in some papers, denies that such prospects as 2 oz to the dish have been got. ' The prospeots,' he says, 'are from 1 gr to 2 dwt to the dish. The best return which has been got was 1 oz 8 dwt from ten oil-cans fall of stuff. The depth varies from forty to sixty feet, the. lower end being the deepest. The width of the lead is not known, as it appears to take sudden turns. - The gold has been traced for three ; quarters of a mile, and. claims are marked out for at Iea9t two miles. A number of shafts are going down, but it will take a week to test the payable quality of the flat. The general opi nion is that a large number of miners will find profitable employment for some months to come. The flat is large enough to give employment to thousands, that is, of course, if it is all auriferous. The supply of ...

There were several thrashing machines worked by steam and horse power, and agricultural machi nery of every description. A feature of the show'i was the exhibition of dogs, which proved an attraction, and in the farther, yard the horse and cattle stock were located. The show ...

DEATH OF MR. AMBROSE KYTE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 December 1868

DEATH OF MR. AMBROSE KYTE. We bare to chronicle, with feelings of regret, the death of Ambrose Kyte, whioh took place on the I6th November, at his residence, Lygon street, Oarlton. He had been ailing for some time, and confined to his bed, with inflamma tion of the right long. His medical atten dants were Drs. Gillbee, Motherwell and Bird, bat 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 hia 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 erected, and from that period he mounted the run...

RIVER WAIAU, OTAGO. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 December 1868

RIVER WAIATJ, OTAGO. g? Our engraving represents a beautiful view on the river Waiau, which divides the south western portion of Otago from Southland, issuing out of Te-Anon Lake, and flowing into the sea at Tewywy's Bay. From the outlying districts through whioh it runs being difficult of access, that portion of the country is only occupied as sheep and oattle 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 Molyneux, 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 pull a boat aoross in ordinary times. The country in which 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 mo...

The announcement that' the Bishop of Lichfield was to preaoh at St. James's Ohuroh drew a large number to that plaoo of worship on ? Sunday morning.
