PRIVATE ENTERPRISE IN BULLAROOK FOREST. [FROM THE CORRESPONDENT TO THE AGE.] [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 June 1866

PRIVATE ENTERPEISE IN BTJLLAEOOK FOREST. (fboh the cobeespondbnt : op the age.] Some few weeks ago, the exigencies of business 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 king mud holds despotic and undisputed Bway. The road through the town, in fine weather or bad, looks .like a white river. In summer, it is clean ; in nutumn, cleanor. ; and in winter, cleanest of all-T-rain haying 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 yon lia'd no constitutional objeotion to quarlzgrita. The buildings are moderately pre tentious. At the entrance of the town, on an eminence, fringed with low gum scrub, stands the PreBbyterian ohurchj semi-gothio in architecture, and built of briok ; its red walls contrasting plea santly with the p...

ACCLIMATISATION IN- TASMANIA. The proper steps nro now being taken for the purpose of extending the benefits of acclimatisation to Northern Tasmania. The northern rivers are quite ob well suited for salmon, salmon trout, and other- choioe fish as the Plenty or tho Dorwent, and only tho exhibition' of a little patriotism, pereover anco, and public epirlt is requisite to secure by small and simple means the extension of great blessings throughout tho colony.

PORTRAITS OF MALAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 July 1866

PORTRAITS OF MALAYS. The two portraits are genuine. That of Koepa has some interest as that of a very fine type of the Malay race, and a somewhat remarkable man. During the visits of the pirates, a great many persons belonging to Billiton were seized and carried off. Koepa undertook a journey to the pira tical fastnesses at the risk of '. being seized himself, and after marvellous adven tures and courageous exploits, succeeded in obtaining the release of more than forty people, who had been carried off at various times. For this service he was publicly presented with a large silver medal, and the thanks of the Dutch Government. The other portrait is that of a girl of the island of Banka — an island near Billiton, and also producing tin — and may be taken as a fair average specimen of Malay women in general. The other engravings speak for themselves, and are fair illustrations of the general order of Javanese landscape. A Desperate Chinaman. — It was stated in these columns, on Wedne...

BILLITON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 July 1866

BILLITON. Billiton is one of the Javanese islands. As there are many persons who, - perhaps, have never heard its name before, we have engraved a few .views taken during tho present year, and present them with a short description of the place. Billiton, which is situated at tho entrance to the Gaspar Straits, is between 3 and 4 degrees of south' latitude, and 108 of east longitude. Its greatest' length is about 65 miles, and its breadth 40 ; the whole surface is composed of sand, resting upon a granite foundation, and strongly impregnated with tin. Like the rest of the Javanese islands, it presents an appearance of great beauty, its graceful avenues of cocoa-nut trees forming the pleasant shades from the fierce midday sun ; luxuriant vegetation and varied foliage, that meet the eye on every side, combined with the picturesque costume of the native inhabitants, must render it an object of interest to the traveller. Although nominally under the Dutch flag, it remained undisturbed by E...
