A STRANGE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 December 1868

A STRANGE STORY. One of those tragic stories which in the early days characterised digging life 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- ing's of the skeleton have been recognised, or have led to the belief that they belonged to a squatter named Young, who was murdered, but of whose remains no trace was ever dis- covered; thus leading to the supposition that the body of the unfortunate man had been burnt by his assassins. The facts appear to be briefly these :— About , ten or twelve years       ago, a flock of about 1200 sheep was travel- ling 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 three men in char-   ge of the flock—the part proprietor Young, a...

MURDER OF PUBLIC-SERGEANT HULL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 December 1868

MURDER OF POLiOE-SERGEANT HULL, We take from the Hamilton Spectator of the 21st ult. particulars regarding the death of police-sergeant Hull, who was deliberately shot on the 20th ult. by a discharged mounted constable named Flannigan : — ;--. Since the departure of Mr Inspeotor Kabat, the police force of Hamilton has been under the command of sergeant Hull, a young man. of great promise, and one who, both as an officer and a townsman, succeeded in gaining the respeot of all and the friendship of nume rous of his fellow .citizens. The removal of the resident inspeotor was a step by no means acoeptablo at the time to the people of Hamilton, but so well has his place been filled by sergeant Hull that the grievance seemed to die a natural death. Hull was unquestionably a favorite, and we have reason to know that his character stood very high with the superintendent of the district. Only a few months ago he was married to a sister-in-law of the borough surveyor, Mr Jenkins, and bad comm...

SUBSTANTIAL PROOF OF PROSPERITY. [FROM THE AGE.] [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 December 1868

SUBSTANTIAL PROOF OF PROSPERITY. . [FBOM THK AQB.] . The banking returns for the quarter end ing SOth September are now complete and published in. aolleotivo form. There are two ways' in which tho ..statistics may bo ro garded, and both.aro interesting. In the first place, it is most important to compare the pre sent bunking statement, with those of past periods in. order to ascortaiu as nearly as pos sible the money profits accumulated by the people. Although there may be disturbing causes to some extent varying the result, the growth of bank deposits affords a fair clue to the increase of realised wealth. The other usofnl purpose served by the publication of the banking accounts is to ascertain tho true rola tions of tho banks and their customers — to discover whether the banks by increased liberality in advances repay the greater mea sure of confidence reposed in them as intli oated by tho deposits entrusted to them. Looking at tho bank returns in the aspect first suggested, ther...

THE NUNTIN TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 December 1868

THE NXJNTIN TRAGEDY. [PHOM THE G1PPB 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 evor ocourred 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 Ouddihy, 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 tho road between tho Nun tin and tho Stratford bridges, cut his wife's throat, shot a man named Croft dead, and as a sequel to tho double murder, had committed suioide by drowning himself in a waterhole within a few hundred yards of the scene of the .diabolical perpetration. Those acquainted with the murderer and suicide were inc...

ST. MARY'S EPISCOPALIAN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 December 1868

ST. MARY'S EPISCOPALIAN CHURCH. Daring the past few years there have been many large and handsome church buildings erected in Melbourne and its immediate suburbs by the various religious denominations, and in most instances the churches have been altogether or nearly cleared of debt 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 colony, the people still hold to the re ligious principles under which they were in- . struoted, and by liberal contributions and do nations, show clearly that religon is not merely with them an empty profession. The Church of St. Mary's, Hotham, 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 services being conducted by the Lord Bishop of Lichfield (England), the Rev. John Potter, of Ballarat, the Rev. Bobert Potter (the . i...

BREARLY BROTHERS' FACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 January 1869

BREARLY BROTHERS' FACTORY. It is one of the most prosperous signs of tbe colony of Victoria, although it is one of the latest established of the offshoots of Great Britain, that wherever an opportunity has been offered of establishing a manufacturing indus try, it has been eagerly taken advantage or. There are, of course, many goods which through the high price of manual labor cannot be made in the colony at present, bat in others natural facilities are effcred by the resources of the colony, and one of these is the manufacture of leather. Eirly in the history of Victoria, attention was directed to this branch of in dustry, the cheapness of hides through the largo number of cattle being killed — often for boiiingdown purposes only— leading the colo nists to believe that it would be cheaper to tin the hides here and make our own leather than to (iPii'l thorn home ami import the same hVea in tlm shape of mai,uf»cture-l goods.

THE ALBATROSS' (DIOMEDEA- EXU jf'A LANS} LINN.)

Every one.wnohas rounded either the Oape of Good Hope or Capo Horn is^familiar with the albatross. r He knows how the appearance of a dozen or so in the wake of a' ship breaks the monotony of the voyage, and how much amuso ment.is afforded by attempts to* catch them with a baited hook.

The above settlement is situated on a beau tiful hill on the left bank of the river Avon. r It has a commanding view over the river and \ the lake at a distance.

OTIRA GORGE. CANTERBURY, N.Z. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 January 1869

OTIRA GORGE. CANTERBURY, N.Z. The Otira Gorge, in the province of Canter bury, N.Z., is a large gap or fissure in the Southorn Alps, extending many miles in length, and at an elevation of between 2000 and 3000 feet. The river Otira runs along the principal portion of its extent, and the scenery is of the very grandest de scription, the rocks on eaoh side rising often almost perpendicularly, and at other^ places gradually sloping upwards, covered with the pine, scrub and vegetation peculiar to the New Zealand Alps. Up to the commencement of the year 18G5 there was no road aoross the mountain chain from Christchurch to the West Coast, exoept a very dangerous path out aoross the Hurunui saddlo, and thiB was the only practicable part of the way for horses. The finding of gold, however, at Hokitika, on the West Coast, in 1865, led the diggers — who are seldom deterred by any obstacle in the pursuit of their favorite metal — to endeavor to cross the Alps, and it became speedily known that...
