THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 June 1866

VINE-GROWING IN THE MURRAY DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 June 1866

VINE-GROWING IN ! THE MURRAY . DISTRICT. Writing of vine-growing in the Murray diBtriot tho Ovens Constitution observes :— ' As regards tho yields of the Ovens and Murray vineyards, and the strength of the wines, amply sufficient has boon brought forward long ago to show that our virio yards yield a larger quantity to the acre, and of greater saooharine body than those of the old world..1 Vhen we take into acoount, therefore, these facts, we ' * '?-.'. -' ?'

AUSTRALIAN DEMOCRACY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 June 1866

AUSTBALIAN DEMOCRACY. A lootnre on the above subject was delivered at St. George's Hall, on the 13th inst., by Mr David Buchanan, M.L. A., of New South Wales. The lecturer prefaced the subject matter for con sideration by entering upon a short political history of England. Fifty years ago, he said, the political rights of the people of England were circumscribed. At that time they were excluded from all participation ill the Legislature ; not a single mercantile man sat in the House of Commons, and the rights of the people were ignored. It was supposed that all government rested exclu sively with the titled and landed interest of Bug land. . The power was exclusively in the hands of the aristooraoy ; and so unwilling were they to part with it that, when the question of reform was mooted, its advocates were subjected to persecution, and overy possible barrier was interposed to their advancement in life in any of the learned profes sions, or wherever Government influence could be exer...

THE LOSS OF THE NEMESIS. The following particulars of the loss of the ship Nemesis were received on the 12th inst., from Maiden Island., At noon on tho 6th of April the vessel was loaded with guano, and was ready for sea, her anchors and chains being stowed, the only fastening being a warp made fast to the shore. The men .were aloft loosing the sails when the vessel suddenly forged ahead and grounded. All sail was then made, and the vessel came off, but not before she had struck on a, sharp pinnacle rock. . She then stood but to sea, but in loss than a quarter of an hour it was ascertained that she had' seven feet of water in her hold.- It was, there fore, requisite to beach her, and she was put on the other tacit and stood in, but it was with great diffi culty that she reached the beaoh.

BAPTIST CHAPEL, SOUTH YARRA. The chapel represented is being erected for the use of the Baptist Church and congregation of South Yarra, under the pastorate of the Rev. David Rees, formerly of Brain tree, Essex. The building is situated in one of the most central and populous localities in the dis trict, and upon a large and promi nent corner allotment— the inter section of Wilson-street and Chapel-street. The old weather- board chapel, which it is intended to supersede, having been found   too small and in other respects extremely inconvenient and unsuitable, it was resolved to erect a larger and a more commodious edifice. A building committee was formed, March, 1865, who instructed Mr T. Watts, architect, to prepare a plan, and subsequently accepted Mr Brown's tender to complete the building according to the plan prepared.

PRIVATE ENTERPRISE IN BULLAROOK FOREST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 June 1866

PRIVATE ENTERPRISE IN BULLAROOK FOREST. . [l-BOM THE O'OBBBSPONDBNT OF THE AGE.] Some few weelis ago, the exigencies of basin ess led me to the pleasant little digging township of Creswick. It struck me as being, without excep tion, the cleanest little town in Victoria, forming a strange contrast to its near neighbor, Daylesford, where' Icing mud holds despotic and undisputed sway. The road through the town, in fine weather or bad, looks like a white river. In summer, it is clean ; in autumn, cleaner ; and in winter, cleanest of all — rain having literally only a cleansing effect, and after a dreary downpour, to use a stilted ex pression, you could ' eat your dinner off it,' es peoially if you had no constitutional objeotion to quartz grits. The buildings are . moderately pre tentious. At the. entrance of the town, on an eminence, fringed with low gum scrub, stands the Presbyterian church j. semi-gothio in architecture, and built of brick ; its red walls contrasting plea santly with...

THE PANAMA KOUTE. The mail service from the antipodes to England via the Isthmus of Panama is a new enterprise' adopted by the New Zealand Government, and aided by a subsidy from New South Wales.

GROG IN THE CAMP. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 June 1866

GROG IN THE CAMP. Tho deplorable scene here depicted was one actually' witnessed by our' artist. ' Somer natives had pitched their ? camp,' consisting of a ' mia inia ' or two, in the neighborhood- of a grog shop, where they had been' supplied with liquor, for which some of them had parted with their rugs and blankets ; and the result was a general fight, as usual with them when intoxi cated. The report recently published on the state of the aborigines supplies evidence only too abundant of their readiness to adopt the vices rather than the virtues of our civilisation. Mr Garratt thusrepoM ? of the, Geelong tribe :—'', I regret to have to report that the thirst .for intoxicating' drinks is as great as ever, and the miserable remnant of a once powerful tribe' is fast drinking itself to the grave. The praotice j of selling clothing for drink is still common, notwith- ? standing all our efforts to prevent it, and there really . seem but scanty hopes of doing any permanent good to those...

WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 June 1866

WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND. Wellington ia the name both of a province and a town. The province, inoluding Hawke's Bay, divides with Auckland the main portion of the Northern Island. The town, is situated at the southern extremity of the province, and on the west shore of Port Nicholson, which opens into Cook's Straits.- Tho harbor is a magnificent expanse of water, affording every possible facility for ships of -the largest burden. In consequence of its possessing the advantage of such a fine harbor, together with the oentrality of its position in relation to the several provinces into which New Zealand is divided, Wel lington has been recently selected as the' seat of Government; and more recently still, as the port of departure for the mail steamers. A special in terest attaches to it just now on these accounts. The town.

WHALE FISHERY ON THE COAST OF JAPAN [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 June 1866

WHALE FISHERY ON THE COAST OF JAPAN The above engraving depicts a most exciting scene in the waters of Japan. A vast expanse of sea is lighted up by the rising sun, while jagged rocks rise boldly from the surface on the horizon. la the centre of the picture a huge whale is spouting forth water and blood, for a number of harpoons have been fixed in her side by the Japanese whaleboats that are swarm ing round her. 'Whaling is an occupation pursued by large numbers of the Japanese, and they are very ex pert in it. The whale fishing particularly flourishes on the sea that washes the, southern shore of thb great island of Niphon, the locality shown in oar engraving. The usual manner of catching the whale. is by har pooning in .the method of the 'Greenland fishermen. The boats of the Japanese, howover, are much better suitod to the purpose than the Greenland boats, being exceedingly sharp, small, light, and capable of being propelled through the water with incredible velocity.
