THE REVOLT IN VENEZUELA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1892

THE REVOLT IN VENEZUELA. [Br Jose Bornn in Hakpeb's Weekly.] Venezuela, South America's norfchernmosfc ropublio, is again the theatro of a revolution, that seemingly chronic condition of the Latin American states— from the view point of colle'ctiveness — that so seriously militates against their highest development. With them, unfortunately, a Presidential eleotion cannot take plaoe peaceably, and thus be allowed to resolve itself into an expression of the people's choice. Its result is oftoner apt to be instead the manifestation of might, for the man in power, desiring to continue in power, either in propria persona or through a proxy, rarely fails to attain his ends by adopting suoh measures and means as the suppression of hos tile newspapers, the banishment from the country of other candidates, the imprisonment of party loaders or other influential persons not favorable to his cause, and various other oppres sive methods that are abundantly calculated to stifle all opposition.

I gave him a lot of things, and we went on shore to wait for his mate to come baok from Star Harbor.

Tho exhibition opened by his Excellency on the 27th May is the most important one the Hocioty baR ever hold, and although two of the leading Victorian artists (Mr. M'Cubbin and Mr. Tom Robertson) exhibit works previously seen, the majority of pictures are new and represent the society worthily.

With the reorganisation of the fire brigado system of Blelbourno the necessity of a new cen tral station, comprising all tho latest improve ments dictated by English ami American ex perience, is considored a necessity. One of the first notions of the reconstituted board was tho purohaso of a site for a head station at tho corner of Victoria and Gisborno streets, Eastern Hill.

INTERCOLONIAL EIGHT-CARED BOAT RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1892

INTERCOLONIAL EIGHT-OARED BOAT RACE. The sixteenth annual Intercolonial Boat Raoe was rowed on 28th May, on the Bulimba' Reach of the Brisbane River, and after a well rowed contest resulted in a viotory for the ' Viotorian crew. Very great interest was taken in the event, it being the first raoe of the kind rowed on Queens land waters, and the success of the Brisbane oars men in tho previous raoe rowed at Melbourne, combined with the faot that the home orew for to-day's oontest had been carefully selected and conch od, gave hopos of a second win in succession. Unfortunately the woather was unfavorable, as a drizzling rain fell during the early portion of tho raoe, which, however, did not appoar to militate against the attendance of spectators, thousands of whom lined the banks of the river along the oourse. The water was smooth and tho tido was ebbing, so that fast time was antici pated. Tho raoe was to have been started at 3.30, but owing mainly to the rudder of the New South Wales...

VIEW OF PORT LOUIS FROM HARBOR BEFORE THE STORM.— See Page 19. ;? MAURITIUS BEFORE AND AFTER THE HURRICANE. By Beta. The reoent calamity at Mauritius brings into prominence a fair spot in the Indian Oooan with which Bernardin do St. Pierre mado us familiar during our childhood, for I presume that moat of us have found pleasure amongst the leaves of that charming little book Paul and Virginia. The Mauritius of to-day, howover, differs in many respeots from the tropical .elysium in which De St. Pierre spent two years of his life nearly a century and a quarter ago. Then, the island was covered with a virgin forest, with the exception of two or three clearings on the coast, where tho pionoer sugar industry had already taken root. One of these was at Riviere Noir, and tho other at Rivi&ro du Rom part, on nearly opposite sides of the island, whilst the ancient capital, Mahebourg, had already been abandoned for tho moro convenient site and superb harbor of Port Louis.
