ARRIVAL OF HIS EXCELLENCY AT THE TREASURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 19 May 1866

ARRIVAL OF HIS EXCELLENCY AT THE TREASURY. As noon approached, a number of carriages drew up at the Government offices, and then formed in line down Collins-street. Most of the windows of the Treasury were -occupied by spectators, chiefly ladies,' and indeed almost all the windows in the locality were similarly filled. Meanwhile, the various trades' societies, with their large banners, were- mastered in Stephen-street, ready for a start, and the horsemen, about 100 in number, assembled together, ready to fall into their places in the pro cession. The most noticeable feature- of the whole gathering was its quietness. There was Boaroely any noise, and walking in and out of the crowds which thronged all the thorbugfares, it was impossible to avoid feeling respect for those who composed them, and indignation at those who, from ignorance, or determined prejudice, will no doubt sneer at the ' mob.' The general current of conversation was pretty much to tho effect that they owed al great d...

ARRIVAL OF THE SALMON OVA AT HOBART TOWN.   H.M.C.S. sloop, the Victoria, Captain W. H.

LOSS OF THE STEAMSHIP URARA, AT THE CLARENCE RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 19 May 1866

LOSS OF THE STEAMSHIP URARA, AT THE CLARENCE RIVER. On Thursday morning, shortly before six 'o'clock, a boat, in charge of the second officer of the steam ship Urara, arrived at Grafton with tho mails and sad intelligence that the C. and R.R.S.N. Com pany's steamer Urara, in entering the heads, at three p.m. the previous day, had struck on the south reef, and was a total wreck; but that the vessel, although stranded on the reef, was out of deep water, her after hold being dryi and that there was some hope of saving a portion of her cargo. The cause of this sad disaster, which fortunately   has not been attended with any loss of life, will form the subject of an inquiry. We     therefore refrain from giving expression to any remarks calculated to prejudice the   minds of those who may be called upon to     investigate the matter, or to throw any blamo   upon Captain Merritt.

THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 19 May 1866

THE MONTH. The great event of the   month has been the removal of Sir Charles Darling from the Governorship of the co- lony. The telegram an- nouncing his recall was dis- believed for a time, because it was deemed incredible that the Imperial authorities could be capable either of treating so unjustly a Governor who had ably and impartially con- ducted the colony through an unparalleled crisis, or of in- terfering so unwarrantably with our right of self-go- vernment. Following the   telegraphic announcement came the. despatches by the mail; and the astounding fact immediately called forth an expression of feeling suchVas onghtto convince the Colo nial Offico that it lias com mitted a great mistake. As an indication jof tho enthu siasm with whioh the people took up the dofenoo of Sir Charles DurliDg ogainst tlio action of tho Colonial Office, we may refer to the iininonso DBsemblago convened in tho Exhibition Building, the largest public building in Melbourn...
