BLESSING ST. PATRICK'S BELLS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 January 1869

BLESSING ST. PATRICE'S BELLS. An impressive and solemn ' ceremony of the Catholic Church was performed on Sun day, 29th November, in St. Patrick's Cathedral, Eastern-hill, when the peal of bells which have so long lain silent within the walls of St. Francis' were consecrated. prior to their being placed in the tower of the cathedral. Never before, excepting perhaps on the occa rion of the consecration of Dr. Shiel, the; Bishop of Adelaide, in August, 1866, did so magnificent a ceremony take place within the walls of a Catholic Church in these colonies, or did so large an assemblage gather together within the precincts of any church. The congregation was literally a mixed one, com posed, as it was, of representatives of every Christian denomination, and even of the Hebrfewpemasio^*7 The doors wen opened at half -past, teno'jfioci, half an hour before the advertised .JtoeWpr commencing the cere mom«s;-bji|»^ff before that hour the pre cincts ojtBHffihedral were thronged by persons anx...

REMARKABLE CASE OF SNAKE-BITE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 January 1869

REMARKABLE CASE. OF SNAKE-BITE. Another of those acoidents from snake-bite whioh are becoming so distressingly prevalent in various parts of the country occurred on 30th November, near the Elsterawick station of the Melbourne and Brighton line. About eight o'clock on that morning, a plate-layer named Harry Short, who was at work ac a spot near the station, while coming from his breakfast, discovered a brown snake about three feet long, and as he considered, killed it with a stick, leaving it hidden by a blue jumper, to frighten his mate with the idea that it was still alive. His companion, however, on removing his jumper, felt assured the animal was dead, but .with the natural antipathy against the ser pent tribe which seems to be almost instinctive with many people, took it on to the railway line, laying, it down on a sleeper and putting the heel of his Heavy boot on its Head, smashed it, to use his own expression, ' as fiat as the .peak of his oap.' Mr John Brown, the sta tion-mas...

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

CHRISTMAS EVE IN AUSTRALIA. Christmas Eve sixteen thousand miles away, in tho old country, one cannot, at this time of the year, forget. Fires are burning brightly in many an old country house, and shining with a reflected red on the whitened Ground outside. The steam from tho bodies of tired horses, as they tramp slowly homeward with the late wag gon-load, gathers in the frosty air. Outside all is still, but inside there is muoh merri ment. Read Washington Irving's description of the Christmas doings at Braoebridge Hall, and see how even a Transatlantic can gloat over and yearn after the Christ mas pleasures of - Merrie England. In no other country, in fact — though there is goodly merriment in Germany or Denmark, and tho other northern countries — is Christmas half so delightful in its surroundings as in England. The climate, somehow or other, is in favor of the ceremonies that usage has enjoined on the oocasion. Frost and fun, winter and wassail, seem, in fact, to go well togethe...

THE REV. A. M. HENDERSON ON THE DELUGE. The Rev. A. M. Henderson, pastor of the Collins-street Independent Church, gave ' a lecture therein, on the 10th Deo., on the snb jeot of ' The Deluge.' Professor M'Ooy presided, and there was a very large attend ance ol auditors. The leotnrer, in a few preliminary remarks, defined as a main principle upon which his theories would be based, the conception of a personal God, or exalted being with human feelings and intellectual qualities in per fection, and at the same time a being capable, as represented in Scrip   ture of a sentiment analogous to that of repentance in the natural man, in such a sense that, without imagining any derogation to His omniscience, He might repent of hiving called a race into being which afterwards proved utterly vicious. He resolved to destroy every impious person on the earth, and em ployed natural instruments for that purpose, and also for preserving the few who should be saved. One hundred and twent...

THE NEW GOLD FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 January 1869

THE NEW GOLD FIELD. Prom accounts that we continue- to receive with regard to the new diggings at- Spring Greek, there can be little doubt of their general richness ; and as they appear to be of consi derable extent there is every probability of their being permanent. ? The following is an account given of them by the special corre spondent of the Bendigo Advertiser : — ' The new diggings are situated on a flat averaging from a quarter to half a mile wide, with a gentle slope towards the Goulburn River, or towards the south. This flat is skirted by quartz ranges, on one of which a reet is being worked, where at a depth of twenty feet from the fl rfaoe, they discovered stpne seven feet thick, which goes an ounce and a half to the ton. The stone has to be carted into Whroo to be crushed, but even with this expense it pays well. On the opposite hill, viz., the Evening Star, some men are prospeoting for a reef, and from the indi cations downwards from the surface they are confident of d...

THE BLACK BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 January 1869

THE BLACK ROCK. The Black Rock, Half Moon Bay, situated about five miles south of Brighton, is a well known spot for snapper fishing during the season, which lasts from November to the end of January ; after which period of the year these fish are to be found on the western side of Hobson's Bay, and near to Gellibrand's Point. They are readily bought up by fish dealers, who find a quick sale within the city and suburbs. Our illustration shows, in the foreground, two of these men bartering with   the fishermen for a basketload just emptied out on the sand. The size varies from 6 inches to 3 feet in length ; however small they are always marketable, the flavor being considered very delicate. Many pleasure parties on fish ing excursions resort to this place in summer, as other fish besides snapper are frequently caught, viz., rook cod, mackerel and flathead. The scenery is very picturesque : the bluff re-   presented in our engraving is lightly timbered with t...

MERIMBULA MAIZENA WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 January 1869

MERIMBULA MAIZENA WORKS. One of the industries which have been thoroughly established in these colonies is that of the manufacture of maizena or corn-flour. Formerly, when we were dependent for our supplies on other countries, the article was too high in price to become one of general consumption Since, however, it has been produced   in these colonies, not only has the price   been reduced to the lowest reasonable amount, but the quality of the article has been greatly improved. Lately, Mr Matthew A. Mann, who was the original projector of the Melbourne Maizena Works, has started a large mill and factory at Merimbula, in the Twofold Bay district, New South Wales, where   be is making maizena of the finest quality. The country around Merimbula is one of the finest in the world for maize-growing, a fact which has rendered that grain a staple product of the farmers there, and has been one   of the principal reasons that induced Mr Ma...

WANGANUI, WELLINGTON, N.Z. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 January 1869

WANGANUI, WELLINGTON, N.Z. Amongst our illustrations of this month we publish an engraving of the town of Wanganui, situated at the mouth of the Wanganui river, in the province of Wellington, which forms a portion of the nsrthern island of New Zealand. The town is very prettily situated at the foot of a gently sloping bin, and reaches down to the ocean on the western side of the island, rendering it accessible to vessels of large size. Wanganui has been particularly brought under public notice during the last few months from the fact that it and its neighborhood has been ren dered one of the principal seats of the war that has unfortunately been forced on the English settlers of New Zealand by the Maories, whose atrocities during the present put break have been of the most barbarous and dis gusting nature. A few months ago the rebels took up arms in the thinly settled country lying inland from Wanganui, achieving various successes, driving most of the settlers into Patea or . Wangan...
