IMMIGRATION DEPOT.—SEE PAGE 6. IMMIGRATION DEPOT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 27 August 1867

! ? ? : ; . IMMIGRATION; D E P O T .—see page 6. IMMIGRATION DEPOT.   One of the institutions of Victoria is the Immigration Depot. Here all the single females who arrive in the colony from Great Britain in search of employment, and who have no friends to stay with on their arrival, are housed until such time as they can meet with   situations. Immediately on arriving in the   port they are taken to the depot, and are allowed several days for washing their clothes and otherwise making themselves presentable to visitors. An extensive mess-room (which is shown in our illustration), about     fifty feet by thirty, stands in the centre of a large plot of ground at the east end of Latrobe-street. The room is listed as a dining-room and sitting-room by the women. On               hiring days it is devoted to the accommodation of the vi...

THE MUCKLEFORD RUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 27 August 1867

THE MUCKLEFORD RUSH.   From the Daily News, 14th August, we select the following:---               Rumors have been in circulation for several days past, of a rush at Muckleford. Yesterday it was currently reported that a 30 OZ nugget had been turned up. The locale of the rush is about six miles from Castlemaine and about a quarter of a mile from Monk's Hotel, at Muckleford. It is about a mile distant from the Castlemaine Deep Lead Company's claim,   which bears S.E. and only 100 yards from the South Muckleford Enterprise shaft, which was   Bottomed, it will be recollected at 140 feet,   when the capital of the company (which was   a very small one) being expended, the claim was abandoned without the ground being proved beyond the washing of a few ma- chines of dirt with poor result. At that depth however, 140 feet, the working w...

EXECUTION OF SEARLE AND BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 27 August 1867

EXECUTION OF SEARLE AND BALLAN           BALLARAT POST, AUGUST 7 The murderers of Mr Thomas Ulick Burke, suffered the extreme penalty of the law at nine o'clock this morning. It is scarcely three months since the date of the crime, and   yet all the claims of justice have been fully satisfied. In this case moreover there is not the slightest shadow of reason for supposing   that others than the guilty have been sacri- ficed to appease the requirements of an unbending law. From the period they were sentenced   they have had no hope of escape from death held out to them, and a petition to the Executive Council, from Searle, praying for clemency, on the ground that the information   given by him was with the expectation of his   life being spared, received prompt and care- ful consideration, but there was nothing   to warrant any favor being dis...

THE GOAT SUCKER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 September 1867

THE GOAT SUCKER. The goat suoker, represented in page 18, is a bird rarely to be met with. ', How-far,' ; says Gould, ?' it may range over the Australian . continent is not known ; the south' eastern are } the only portions in which it has yet been dis covered; and, although' the specimens I have seen in collections were all prooared at .More ton Bay, I have killed three or four of an evening on the cleared lands on the Upper Hunter, which shows that it is far from being a scarce bird in that part of New. South. Wales. In all probability it is only a summer' visitant in' the colony, as it was at this' season only that ? I observed it. In the day time it sleeps oh the ground 'on some dry: knoll or open part of the forest, imd as ' twilight approaches sallies forth .to the open glades and ?small plains or cleared lands' in eearch of insects ; its flight, which is more powerful than that of any other goat-sucker I have, scon, enabling .'it to pass through the air with great rapidity, a...

NATIVES ROASTING AN EMU. The picture on page 13 is a pendent to one which appeared in a recent issue that re presented Borne natives Btalking the emu. This represents the roasting a captured bird; The flesh is said to bo 'good- eating; and to re semble coarse heef, both in appearance and taste. Turning ? to . Gould's ? ' Birds of Aus tralia' for information, wo find the following remarks on the subject : — :' 'There is but little fit for culinary use upon any part' of the emu. except the hind quarters, which are of 'such dimensions that the shouldering ef two hind legs homewards for a mile ' distanqe - once proved tome as tiresome a task as ever I re colloot to have encounteredin the .colony.

POPOTUNA GORGE, OTAGO, NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 September 1867

POPOTUNA GORGE, OTAGO, NEW ZEALAND. This picturesque pass carries the main road from Invercargill to Danedin through the dividing range -which forms the natural boun dary of Otago and Southland. The latter pro vince sacrificed the lake country, in whioh. the Wakatipu diggings were discovered, in an un successful attempt to wrest from their neigh bors the fertile plains and valleys whioh lie between this range and the river Matura, the presont legal boundary. But little has been done by the present conservators of the public interest for the convenience of travellers in this wild region, and the road' is one not only of difficulty but danger. For a distance of moro than a mile two vehicles cannot pass eaoh ether, and even to one there is some risk, as from the upper part of the mountain rocks and . land slips occasionally block the way, anil the roaring.forrent of- the Karawau in the /gorge below presents an ugly abyss for the 'reception of any unfortunate traveller who may have the ...

The engraving an the front page is that of a marble bust which has been recently added to the art collection at the Publio Library. This exquisite piece of soulpture is named ' La Puberta,' and represents the passage from girl hood into womanhood. The face is very beau tiful, the artist having thoroughly succeeded in making it expressive both of modest diffi dence and of the dawning consciousness of maturity. On looking at it we are at once re minded of Longfellow's lines : — Maiden 1 with tlio meek, brown eyes, In whose orbs a Bbadow lies, Like the dusk in evening skies I Thou whose locks outshine the sun, Golden tresses, wreathed in one, ' As tho braided streamlets run t Standing, with reluctant foot, Where tho brook and river meet, Womanhood and childhood fleet!

COTTON-GROWING IN QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 September 1867

COTTON-GROWING IN QUEENSLAND., In so far as the picking is concerned, the cotton season of 1866 may be considered as ended. There ore small patches to gather in well exposed situations, but the great bulk of the crop is either baled and shipped, or in a fair way of being so in the course of a few weeks. ''.Of. the total quantity we are not yet In a posi tion to speak. The season, unfortunately, has has not -- been without failures; some of the oldest and most enterprising growers are serious sufferers from tlie effects ef early grub ravages, and the long spell of wet weather which was in jurious to every branch'* of agriculture.

THE ANNUAL SHOW AND SALE OF DRAUGHT AND THOROUGHBRED SIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 September 1867

THE ANNUAL SHOW AND SALE OF DRAUGHT AND THOROUGHBRED SIRES. Far twelve years past, Messrs M'Caw and Another, of the Royal Horse Bazaar, Bourke street west, have held, on the .first Tuesday in September, a show and sale of draught horses, including sires, dams and young stock of both sexes. A' few thoroughbreds also are usually exhibited, and on former occasions the show has included donkeys and ponies, the latter in considerable numbers. On 3rd inBt., however, the horses had it all to themselves; the pony element had grown too large to be dealt with -the same day as the big ones.

MELBOURNE HUNT.—MEETING AT SPRING VALE, DANDENONG.—SEE PAGE 5. THE MELBOURNE HUNT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 September 1867

THE MELBOURNE HUNT. The earliest paoks of hounds date back as far as 1845, when Mr Tom Pike, of Ballan, hunted a pack at his own expense ; and between 1845 and 1850 Mr OomptonFerrars hunted the Leigh, near Geelong, with a bitoh pack. Both of theie packs had been bred from, imported hounds, and no trouble or expense was spared to form them into a good and serviceable paok ef hounds. The Melbourne country had, how ever, been as yet left untouched, and it was not until about 1850 that the present Melbourne Hunt assumed the shape of a olub. In that year a meet ing was held at the old Shakspeare Hotel, Collins-street, and in ono evening £600 was subscribed to place the olub on a lasting footing. The foremost in the movement were the present master, Mr Geo. J. Watson, Harry Bignell, Sydney James, Knox, Tom Moody, Turner, Dunnett, Frank Stephen, the three brothers Payne, and J. Gorton, besides many others, whose names have escaped our memory. Mr Geo. Watson was unanimously chosen the maste...

GIPPS LAND HOSPITAL, SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 September 1867

GIPPS LAND HOSPITAL, SALE. The Gipps Land Hospital, at Sale, originated with a small society, established a few years ago, for the relief of casual oases of sickness or accidental injury among indigent strangers, who were then frequently coming into Gipps Land in search of employment on publio yorks or at the mines. At first the society used to provide accommo- ? dation for the sufferers at the lodging houses in the town ; these, however, ?were so crowded with boarders who required no nursing or extra attention, that the proprietors were unwilling to receive sick lodgers. A house was then taken and fitted up as a tempo rary hospital* with accommodation for ten patients, and the beds have gene rally been all occupied, thus affording relief to many who would otherwise have had difficulty in obtaining either shelter, food, or medical care, except when brought under the provisions of the Vagrant Act.
