BEACH ENCAMPMENT. The accompanying view of a beach encampment and diggers at their evening meal, on the West 'Coast of ;New Zealand, is a lively illustration of a happy group who, we may imagine, have been suecessfal in pro curing a share of the preoious metal. When fortune favors them, diggers are not the men to deny them- 1 selves tho comforts of life i; and in this instanco, we may observe some suspioioua looking1 bottlos, with the contents of which' they 'have' no doubt been cheering themselves.

' His name is George Whittol. I was yesterday introduced to him by John Neale, Esq., J.P., who can very nearly. claim to be one of the oldest nativea himself, and who, knowing Whittel upwards of sixty years ago, takes a great interest ia the old man. Thinking it ra'ight not be altogether uninteresting to some of your readers, and knowing that many things con nected with the colon j's early history are com pletely dark to the majority of the inhabitants of the present day, I have taken the trouble to note down, from the old man's lips, the following short biographical sketch of his life, and a few matters connected with the oolony in the did times. I may here observe that although Whittel has exceeded the age allotted to man, he is yet in perfect ^healthj' his vision, hearing, and voice are fault les...

MOUNT WINGEN, NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 19 May 1866

MOUNT WINGEN, NEW SOUTH WALES. The only volcano yet known to exist in Australians that bearing the above title, which is situated about twelve miles from Murrurundi, near the'head of the   Page, an affluent of the Hunter, in lat. 81° 54' S., lon. 15° 56' E. It was discovered in 1818, and from that time to the present, has been in a state of com- bustion. There at present exists what is supposed to have been the ancient .crater, but the subterraneous fires appear to have long since worn out their fury in that direction, and are at present raging nearly a thousand feet further south, higher up the mountain. Through the great fissures in the ground can be heard the fire roaring beneath like an immense furnace ; and to such tremendous depth has it penetrated in some places, that if a large stone is thrown down it cannot bo heard to touch the bottom, but the sound gradually dies away in the depths below. In others, a stone - thrown down immediately explodes with a noise like...

BOILING SPRINGS OF OROKOKORAKO. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 19 May 1866

BOILING SPRINGS OF OROKOKORAKO. On the Waikato, in the North Island of New Zen,- . land, the boiling springs are almost innumerable. Some of them shoot up a .column of water to a con siderable height, and are little, if at' all, inferior to the geysers of Iceland. A village is often found in the midst of them. The'1 reason assigned by the natives for living in such a singular locality, is that ^there is no necessity for fires, all their cooking being done in the hot springs;, and further that, froth the warmth of, the ground, they are enabled to raise' their crops several weeks earlier than their neighbors.' But, as counterba lancing these advantages, many fatal accidents 'occur in consequence of 'persons; especially, strangers, and children, falling into these fearful caldrons arid being boiled. One of. the boiling springs of this neighbor hood possesses the- ? property :0f.- changing; tho nature of anything which may be placed .in it,, and' converting it into a .beautiful siliciou...
