TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 January 1869

TASMANIA. [feom oub own cobbespondent.1 The month has been one of great anxiety to the great body of our colonists. For several weeks there was a continued drought. ' The country, before so green and so promising, became dry and parched; bush fires in several distnots bucame general, and our crops were. in peril. All, however, have been relieved. Most genial rains, and that in abundance, have fallen in all parts 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 flocks, 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 olimate. In all parts of the colony are there visitors from Viotoria and New South Wales, who...

Philip Grossard, who met his death on the 17th Dec., by a gunshot wound.

MERIMBULA MAIZENA WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 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 con- sumption. Since, however, it has been pro- duced 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. Munn, who was the original projector of the Melbourne   Maizena Works, has started a large mill and factory at Merimbula, in the Two- fold Bay district, New South Wales, where he 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 pro- duct of the farmers there, and has been one of the principal reasons that induced Mr Munn to establish his manufactory at M...

The second was felt by some persons at the other: end of the town. Some men sitting on the ground near the Queen's Hotel felt the shook very strongly. Mr Mitchell, of Gollan's Bay, states- that his house was shaken as if by a'heavy blast. ?

SHEPHERD'S HUT ON THE MOIRA STATION, NEAR THE MURRAY. This scene ocours on tho station of the hen. John O'Shanassy, at the Upper Moira,; about twelve miles from the Murray bank, on the road to Deniliquin. The subjeot depicted is a shenherd's hut on the extreme confines of the run, looking towards Mathoara, or Red bank. It was', chosen by our artist partly to show the hut, whioh is picturesque enongh in itself, and partly to show the pine tree foliage with which few in Victoria are well acquainted. .The hut, it will be observed, is built, .Cana dian fashion, ef logs squared inside and mud plastered. The roof, of gum-tree bark, is held on by a superincumbent framework pegged to gether with .tree-nails. Of all' the huts known to the bushman those of this sort ore the most comfortable.
