TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 January 1869

-TASMANIA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.! The i month has.boen one of great anxiety to the great body of our colqnistB. For several weeks there, was a continued drought. The country, before bo, green and so promising, became dry and parched ; bush fires in several districts bucame general, and our crops were iu peril. All, however, have been relieved. Most genial rains, and that in abundance, have fallen, in all ports of the colony. Feed will soon again spring up, and our harvest be made promising. ? The shearing of sheep is now general; but it is believed that from the effects of fluke and. the deterioration in some of the Hooks, the quantity of wool shipped this season will not be equal to that of former years. On the other hand, there are growers who now produce wool, both in quantity and quality! superior to that, ever obtained before, and, whioh will ultimately be more general in this favored olinaate. In all parts of the colony are there visitors from Viotoria and New South Wal...

THE PIONIC.—AN AUSTRALIAN CHRISTMAS STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 January 1869

THE PICNIC ? AN AUSTRALIAN CHRISTMAS STORY. Night was approaching as tired and hungry I crossed the Maointyre, and rode into the township of Inverell. It was Christmas time, and sounds of revelry prooeeded from the first two inns I came to. Wishing for a quiet night's rest, I passed on and finally alighted from my horse at a small but clean losking house. In answer to my inquiries, the landlady professed her willingness to give me the do commodation I wanted, but added she was afraid the bedroom would not be all I could desire ; ' for,' she said, ' the beBt room is oc cupied by a gentleman, a surveyor, who stops here always when surveying in the neighbor hood.' Replying that, provided it was^cleon, I should be satisfied, I passed into the, paMor, and who 'should rise, and with a smile of wel come greet mo, but Charley Dashwood. 'Why, Dalton,'he exclaimed, 'I heard some, one had arrived, but who would have thought of seeing you? Why, it's nearly two years since we met.' Charles Dashw...

CHRISTMAS MORNING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 January 1869

CHRISTMAS MORNING. Christmas morning in Australia. A bright happy party, assembled on the landing stage of a suburban villa on , the Yarrii. Already one party has embarked,. and, from their boat are waving handkerchiefs as signals. These are responded to by a pretty, girl in a killing hat and robes cpurtes. Very pretty Jn deod, with ;a light,, yqrithfuj flgurej but. the attraction for her is evidently in jhe.^pther boat, and the young gentleman escorting her evidently knows it, and devotes his attention to the lady on his other arm. Sitting on a paoking-oase, probably well filled with the good things of life, is a handsome boy, evidently home for the holidays, oaroBsing a large New foundland dog, not a bad companion on a water party, where accidents will sometimes happen even on Christmas Day, and in the best regu lated parties. Alongside the landing-stage is another 'boat, under' Ihe canopy of which 'several ladies are seated, and into whioh a young fellow is handing another. In th...

QUEENSLAND. There are exoellent accounts from the Dar ling Downs with regard to the state of the country in that district. Raoeat refreshing showers have brought up a fine spring of grass, and there is now water on the roads leading to the Gympie gold-Uelda.

Close beneath us Hob a mass of dense 'foliage; and beysnd stretches a wide- expaase'of 'country, with the waters of the Bay in the dis tance.
