BREARLEY BROTHERS' FACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 January 1869

BREARLEY BROTHERS' FAOTORY. It is one of the most prosperous signs of the colony of Victoria, although it is one of the latest established of the offAoots of Great Britain, that wherever an opportunity has been offered of establishing a manufacturing indus try, it has been eagerly taken advantage of. There are, of course, many goods which through the high price of manual labor cannot be made in the colony at present, but in others natural facilities are offered by the resources of the colony, and one of these is the manufacture of leather. Early in the history of Victoria, attention was directed to this branch of in dustry, the cheapness of hides through the large number of cattle being killed— of ten for boiling-down purposes only — leading the colo nists to believe that it would be oheaper to tan the hides here and make our own leather than to send them home and import the same hides in the shape of manufactured goods. That idea was further impressed on the public mind from the fa...

BLESSING ST. PATRICK'S BELLS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 January 1869

BLESSING ST. PATRICK'S TIUT.T.S An impressive and solemn ceremony of the Catholic Church was performed on Sun day, 29th November, in St, Patrick's Cathedral, EasternhiM, 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.

The congregation was literally a mixed one, com posed, as it was, of representatives of every Christian denomination, and even of the Hebrew persuasion. The doors ware opened at half-past ten o'clock, half an hour before the advertised time for commencing the cere monies; but long before that hour the pre cincts of the cathedral were throngedby persons anxio...

These mountains were alwayB objepts.'of the. deepest admiration to sailors and the earlier voyagers, and have up to the present time remained uninhabited wildernesses. 'Many of the. mountains reach an altitude of from 10,000' to 13,000 feet, and are covered with enormous masses of snow and extensive glaciers, whioh' give rise to tho rapid rivers and nll'the numerous lakes of the middle island.

THE PICNIC.—AN AUSTRALIAN CHRISTMAS STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 January 1869

THE PICNI0.^--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 proceeded from tho 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 loeking house. In answer to my inquiries, the landlady professed her willingness to give me the ac commodation I wanted, but added she was afraid the bedroom would not be all I could desire ; ' for,' she said, ' the : best room, is oc cupied by: a gentleman, a surveyor, who stops hero alwayB when surveying in the neighbor hood.' Replying that, provided it was cloan, I should be satisfied, I passed into the parlor, and who should rise, and with a smile of wel come greet me, 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.' C...

RESULTS OF MANNING'S MEAT PRESERVING PROCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 January 1869

RESULTS OF MANNING'S MEAT PRE SERVING PROCESS. Some time since we {Sydney Mail) called attention to Mr Manning's method of preserving meat in a raw fresh state, and ex pressed our conviction that the process would prove a success. That opinion was founded upon tbe theoretical understanding of the pro eess itself, and a slight acquaintance with a few' tins of the meat which had been in keeping some months. We are now in a position te say something more about Air Manning's ap plication. It seems that he has put 2500 tins of meat, principally beef, which have met with a good market, and the cordial approval of con sumers in Hobart Town, the Fiji's, and New Caledonia. In the Fijis the tinned meat finds a ready sale at lOd per pound, and in Hobart Town at 6d. This is tho price at eaoh of these ' places. A large order has been exeoated for China, 6d per 1b being paid here. - This is, perhaps, the most remunerative pro cess of meat preserving that has yet been started in this oolony. MV Ma...
