THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN WHEAT CROP FOR THE CURRENT SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 January 1869

THE SOUTH AOSTBALIAN WHEAT CROP . FOR THE CURRENT SEASON. fi-nosr s. a. BEaisTEn, December 15.1 . : A'ooording to the official statistics, the total' yield of wheat for the province in 1866-7 was 6,561451, bushels. Our estimate of the quantity made many weeks before the appoaranoe. of these statistics, and based entirely upon the information supplied by farmers in reply to our ciroulasr, was six million and three-quarter bushels. In thiB case the discrepancy amounted to only 200,000 — a faot which proves how close an approximate estimate can be formed before hand of the produce of an ordinary crop. In 1867-8 the red rast came and baffled all attempts at anything like an accurate calculation. The lowest estimate considerably ? exceeded what proved to be the aotual. fact. The farmers themselves evidently were puzzled, for Mr Boothby's returns . cannot . bo altogether re-,' .oonoiled with the figures representing' our aotual ' surplus for laBt season. In every respect it was a memorabl...

THE BLACK BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 January 1869

THE BLACK ROCK, i The Blaok Rook, Half Mucm .Bay, situated about five miles south of Brighton, s a well known spot for snapper fishing during the season, which lasts from November to the end of January ; after . whioh 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 baaketload just emptied out on the sand. The size varies irom 6 indies 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 eammer, as ether fish besides snapper are frequently caught, viz., rock cod, mackerel and fluthead. The scenery is very picturesque : the bluff re- . presented in our engraving is lightly timbered with teatree and honeysuckle...

VIEW FROM ONE TREE HILL—FERN TREE GULLY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 January 1869

VIEW FROM ONE TREE HILL— FERN it, . ? TREE GULLY. We .have; dismounted from none ? or baggy, .left'.' the merry group of friends below, and with the aid of a stout stick and a good pair of legs have climbed to tbe height above the crnllv so well, known to Melbourne pleasure seekers. Close beneath ns lieg a mass of denBa foliage, and beyend BtretcheB a wide expaaee'of country, with the waters of the Boy in the dis tance. It is worth while certainly even leaving that pleasant party below, and all the other de lights of Fern Tree Gully. The waters of the Bay ' are there in the far off background ; ships are sailing to and fro on its bosom. Mount Eliza and the lower lands of Western Port lie broadly before us, a picture of rest and solitude. It is little to us standing on that rise that, barely thirty miles away, men's hearts ore throbbing, beating— aye, and breaking — in the strife and turmoil of a great city, where each elbows Mb fellow man, and struggles hard for a place on the pathw...

A CHRISTMAS PARTY ON MOUNT MACEDON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 January 1869

A CHRISTMAS PARTY *-N MOUNT MAOEDON. ; A gully of -Mount Macedon by M. Cheva lier— a name as familiar in the mouths of all admirers of Australian scenery as a house hold word. How like reality as it is ; how unlike what it was! A picnic in a gully of Mount Macedon, in the recesses of the old Blaok Foreat— shades once possessed ' of as bad- a name as ever was the most robber ridden forest road in old * Rhineland, and in fested with denizens quite as disagreeable, if not as romantic in their habits and manners. The old robber-baron, the f reebooting Freiherr, whose haughty petulant assumptions nearly drove half a dozen, kaisers mad, rode, it is true, thfongh the glades of the ' Blaok Forest of Allemagne' with 'vizor down and all the shining panoply of arms, while the bushranger of tbe ' Blaok Forest of Australia' performed a toilette in which red shirt and thigh boots formed the moBt conspicuous features. But their ends and aims were all the same. . It was the beauty of the golden dem...

REMARKABLE CASE OF SNAKE-BITE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 January 1869

REMARKABLE ; CASE OP SNAKE-BITE. Another' of those accidents from snake-bite which are becoming so distressingly prevalent in various parts of the country oocurred on 30th November, near* the Elsternwick station of the Melbourne and 'Brighton line. About eight o'clock on that . morning; a plate-layer named Harry Short, who was at work at a spot' near the station, while coming from, his breakfast, discovered a brown snako abeut three feet long, and as ho considered, killed it with a stiok, 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, bnt with' the natural antipathy again Bt 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 nse his own expression, 'as flat as the peak of his cap.'

OTIRA GORGE, CANTERBURY, N.Z. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 January 1869

OTIRA: GORGE. CANTERBURY. N.Z. The Otira Gorge, in the provinoe of Canter bury, N.Z., is alarge gap or fissure in the Southern!. Alps, ' extending many miles in length, and at an elevation of between 2000 andi 3000 feet. Tho river Otira runs along the principal- portion of its extent,* and the scenery is of the very grandest de scription,' the rocks ..on' each side rising often almost perpendicularly, and at other places gradually- sloping upwards, covered with the pine, scrub and vegetation peculiar to the New Zealand Alps. Up to the commencement of the year 1865 there was no road aoross the mountain- chain from Ghristchuroh to the West Coast, except a very dangerous path cut aoross the Hurunui saddle, and this was the only practicable part of the way for horses. Tho finding of gold, however, nt Hokitika, on tho West Coast, in 1865, led the diggers— who are seldom deterred by any obstacle in the pursuit of their favorito metal — to endeavor to cross the Alps, and it became speedily...

CHRISTMAS EVE IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 January 1869

?CHRISTMAS EVE IN AUSTRALIA. ._; Christmas Eve sixteen thousand miles away,: in the 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 the bodies of tired horses, as they, tramp slowly homeward with the late wag- ? gon;load, gathers in the froBty air. Outside all ,is still, but inside there is much merri ment. Read Washington Irving's description of tho Christmas doings at Braoebridge Hall, and see how even, a Transatlantic can gloat over and yearn after the Christ- - mas pleasures of Morrio England. In no other country, in faot — though there is goodly merriment in Germany or Denmark, and the other northern countries — is Christmas half so delightful in jits surroundings as in England. The oliraate, somehow or other, is in favor of the ceremonies that usage has enjoined. on the occasion. Frost and fun, winter and wassail, seem, in faot, ...
