FELLING A GIANT GUM TREE IN THE RANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 February 1869

FELLING A GIANT GUM TREE IN THE RANGES. In the Dandenong ranges, at the Black Spur and various other parts of Victoria, are to be found gum trees of such a marvellous height as to rival the Wellingtonia of California, hitherto regarded, as the tallest trees in the world. A fallen gum tree on the Black Spur measured 480 feet in length. Another at the   Dandenong showed a height of 295 feet to the first branch, the height then extending 70 feet farther in ramifications to the broken top branch, which at the place of fracture still measured 3 feet across. The stems of these gigantic eucalypa are as straight as arrows, and for the greater part of the length branch less. Some of the larger sort have been found to measure about 80 feet in circumference at a distance of four foot from the ground. There are two varieties; 'one is called eucalyptus   radiata, of which the stem is beautifully smooth , and of an ashy color, inasmuch as the outer layer of bark periodic...

THE ' WELCOME STRANGER.' The other day the telegraphies wires flashed throughout the colony the startling announcement that a nugget had been un earthed, the- largest ever seen, that it was heavy lifting for two men to pat it on a dray, that it weighed about two thousand ounces, and was worth tan 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 : — ' The 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 the words of | the Melbourne journals, ' beat the world' - in producing the largest mass of gold on ; record.

QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 March 1869

QUEENSLAND. A Rookhampton paper gives the following particulars of a strange animal lately dis covered at a place called Morinish :— ' A miner named James, while at work in a temporarily abandoned claim in No. 2, North. Alliance, discovered a sin gular animal, which as yet appears not to havo, been desoribed in the fauna of Aus tralia. In size it is like the eohidna, or native porcupine, but appears - ambidextrous, the only two organs of locomotion partaking of the digitate and pedicular anatomy. It ap pears nocturnal in its habit, and forms on ex ceedingly, neat nest of dried grass roots and small branches. It is oviparous, the one captured a female, containing a bunch of eggs, in whioh the germs of life were plainly perceptible. The discoverer intends forwarding it to the Acclimatisation Society at Brisbane, who will doubtless value it as a remarkable production of our northern distriot.'
