THE ZIG-ZAG OF THE OTIRA., N.Z. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 February 1869

THE ZIG-ZAG OF THE OTIRA., N.Z. We this month give another of M. Cheva lier's sketches on the overland route be tween Christohuroh and Hokitika. It is the descent of the Otira Gorge towards the . north-west, and illustrates well the alpine / oharacter of the Boenery. Wild and in hospitable as these regions were to tho. hardy diggers who first essayed to cross them, en route from the Donston and the Wakatipu to the golden shores of West land, we, or ear children, will yet see them resorted to as the sanatorium of these southern lands, where a cool and invigorat ing summer will restore the system, ex hausted by the toil of our dusty Australian cities. . ; A disthesbino ciroumstance . occurred on the 7th February, near St. Leonards. Mrs Lloyd, wife of the postmaster of that dis trict, went with her four children to visit a friend about two miles distant. While there the children were allowed to go out to amuse themselves. After a while threo of them only returned. They stated their bro...

' Old Times' seem to be revived in these days of new rushes and monster nuggets. Old JDunolly, after having turned out a multitude of nuggets that pnts every other gold-field in the colony in the shade, has at length .'.beat the world,' as the papers say, in producing a mass of gold two hundred pounds weight, and worth ten thousand pounds. This enormous mass of gold, the largest in the world, was found lying within two inches of the Burface.

GEORGE W. GQYDER, ESQ., J.P. George Woodroffe Goyder, Esq., J.P., Sur veyor-General of South A&Btralia, whose por trait we give in our present issue, has been selected by the Government to carry out the onerous task of surveying the much talked of Northern Territory, which unfortunately, as far as South Australia is concerned, has been truly ' a white elephant.' Mr Goyder has by his energy raised himself to his present high . offloial position, and during his oareer has drawn upon himself no small share of unenvi able notoriety in the discharge of his duties, especially in carrying out the very difficult and invidious task of valuing the runs of the colony, which elioited an amount of public criticism that very few men have been called upon to bear. In. the celebrated ' Moonta' case he had the extremely delioato and respon sible duty of fixing the claims of rival dis coverers, and the odium mineralogioum has not * left Mr Goyder scatheless ; however, be this as it may, it ap...

FORD'S ROCK-BORING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 February 1869

FORD'S BOOK-BORING MACHINE. The application of ma chinery, in one form or other, has now become ap plied in almost every branch of industry ; bat only with in the last few years has any application of mecha nical power, as a substitute ' for manual labor in the ex traotion of the minerals and the .removal of hard rooks, been made. One of the greatest items of cost generally in the wages paid for _ the excavation, by holing or jumping, or other wise perforating the rook or minerals to receive the blasting charges. The non application of suitable ma chinery has long been de plored by almost every, mining proprietor or em ployer wuo has to do with each operations. The great depth of onr mines, and the increased difficulty attend ing ventilation, are condi tions met at once by the application of compressed air - driven machinery, which, after doing the work of excavation; wastes not its residue products, bnt expends them in giving a - most effective ventilation, by thoroughly diluting t...

THE "WELCOME STRANGER." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 February 1869

THE ''WELCOME STRANGER.' The other day the telegraphio wires dashed throughout the colony the startling announcement that a nugget had been un earthed, the largest ever seen, that it was heavy luting for two men to put it en a dray, that it neighed about two thousand ounces, and was worth ten thousand pounds sterling. However startling it may appear, the announcement was perfectly true. The monster nugget was found at a place called Moliagul, about eight miles from Danolly. We take from the local paper, the Dunolly Express, the following particulars of the event : — ' Tho Dunolly district, after - having turned out a multitude of nnggets that puts every other goldfiold in the oolony in the shade, has at length, in tho words of the Melbourne journals, ' beat tho world' in producing the largest mass of gold on record.

A breath of wind scarcely ruffled the face of the river, and but for the tide the sailing oraft would havo. ap peared as . ' painted \ ships upon a painted ocean.' There were in all eleven races, the first having a competitor from Ho bart Town, Mr Thomas Turner, who showed himself to be the master of the field, and won. The most exciting, however, was for the Chal lenge Sonlls, the gift, of Mr John Cathcart. The possessor of them must win on two suc cessive years, when they beoome, his. property.
