FORD'S BOOK-BORING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 March 1869

FORD'S BOOK-BOBING 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 baa any application of meoha nical power, ai a substitute for manual labor in the ex traction 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 en - ployer who has to do with euoh operations. The great depth of our 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 exoavation, wastes not its residue produots, but expends tbpm in giving a most effective ventilation, ? by thoroughly dilating...

GEORGE W. GOYDER, ESQ., J.P. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 1 March 1869

GEORGE W. GOYDER, ESQ., J.P. George Woodroffe Goyder, Esq., J.P., Sur veyor-General of South Australia, whoBO por trait we give in our present issue, has been neleoted by the Government to carry out the onerous task of surveying the muoh 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 bis present high official position, and during his career has drawn upon himself no small share of unenvi able notoriety in tho discharge of his duties, especially in carrying out the very difficult and invidious task of valuing the runs of the colony, which elicited an amount of public criticism that very few men have been called npon to bear. In the celebrated ' Moonta' case he had the extremely delicate and respon sible duty of fixing the claims of rival dis coverers, and the odium mineralogicum has not left Mr Goyder scatheless ; however, be this as it may, it appeared th...

NEW ZEALAND. , A slight shook of earthquake was felt at the Mannkau and at Wahganui, on Sunday, the 3rd Jan., and also at Nelson; on the following .day the tide in Taranaki roadstead exhibited extraordinary eccentricities. It was high tide at about six minutes past one, when, although it was neap tide, it !roso higher than a spring tide;. it ebbed for three or four hours, occa sionally receding and flowing up to the boat . sheds, and it did not thoroughly fall during the whole afternoon. On Sunday, the 10th, two slight shocks of earthquake were felt at Dunedin. The Northern New Zealand papers are puz zling over the question of what is to be done''' with the prisoners taken at Ngatap'u. , Th'e re sults of the ' escape of the rebels from tho Chatham Islands are pointed to as a warning of the dangers of imprisonment or depor tation, and some of tho .papers strongly advise that they should be all dealt with aB murderers.

FIRE IN EAST MELBOURNE. A man was burned to death at about mid night on Friday, the 19th ult., during a conflagration whioh. destroyed an ' out house at the rear of Hotham-terraoe, Hotham streot, East Melbourne. Tho building was of timber, and was scorched by the sun oi tne iast few days until it was as inflammable as matoh wo'od; so that the firo did not last more than ton minutes. It was never Buspeoted, until too late, that a man was in tho nhod, for, as usual in suoh cases, the people in tho neighborhood who had seen him going towards his domioile at about half-past ten, had not their wits suffi ciently about thorn to make proper inquiries as to the man's wheroabouts while the firo was blazing.

HAMILTON PASTORAL AND AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869

HAMILTON PASTORAL AND AGRICUL TURAL SOCIETY'S SHOW. On Wednesday 10th inst. the seventeenth show was held at the yards, Hamilton. The day was fine, and there was a large attendance; but the exhibits, although perhaps more numerous than hi any preceding year, were not sufficient to induce that healthy competition necessary to the active promotion ot agricultu ral enterprise. In the ' Agricultural Produce' department there were no exhibits in classes 3, 6,9,12, 13, 14, 15, 16, or 19; in other de partments there was little or no competition; and in many cases, the exhibits were unworthy of notice. There ore evidently faults some where, and we think tho goneral management susceptible of a little improvement. Practical men — agriculturists — might be added to the committee, the admission to whioh might not be prohibited by a throe-guinea fee. The en trance fee, too, charged to exhibitors might he reduced to a nominal thing, and so remove a bar to many exhibitors. The expenses of ad verti...

* A DUST STORM. - The city and suburbs were, 3rd inet., visited by the severest dust storm which I as been experi enced for many years. At about seven o'clook a.mi, 'Wednesday, the wind, which had been blow ing all night from the north, suddenly chopped ., round to the west, bringing with it vast clouds .of dust. For nearly half an hour Melbourne was „ involved in darkness. Oat of doors it was almost impossible to breathe without swallowing ?a mouthful of gritty dust, and the wind was so violent that locomotion was impos sible. In about half an hour the violence of thy- wind somewhat moderated, but .the dust continue1 to be disagreeably felt ' until nearly noon. Singularly, enough, the dust appeared to have onsen on the Worri&ee ? Plains, which looked as if they were on lire. We have not heard of any fatal accidents during the storm, although several houses were unroofed, and a large amount of property was seriously injured. Very little damage was done at Emerald-bill and Sa...

There was a fair Bhow of horse stock, amongst which were con spiouous the two Cleveland entires, Stonewall Jaokson and Governor, the property of Mr Horwooa, and the pretty Welsh pony, Toffy, the property of Mr Boyd.
