DESTRUCTIVE FIRE IN BALLARAT. A fire broke out, 12th inst., about 1 o'clock, at the works of the Great North-west Com pany's No. 1 shaft, and the. whole of the sur face plant, housings, and , firewood, excepting one or two outhouses, has been destroyed. 'We gather, the details from the Star, By the time .iije. Plough toll-gate was reached, the flames could be seen in large force, one large staok of firewood being on fire, and the wind, whioh blew from the north-west, sending, the flames towards, the large mass of housing where the company's valuable, engines, boilers, and all' the appurtenanpes of the shaft were situated. The chief dim at once was to do what was^ pbsf ible , ,tp, iave the kousing and i machinery,; bijit theres ,was , littlo or no water, and,, the immense stdpks of fire wood lay, clo'se '??, by,!

The M.C.O. had to take a very inferior team, and also play one' man abort, a * place being left opeu for Robertson until the last moment, an it was expected ho would come down.

BUSH ROMANCE AND REALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869
BUSH ROMANCE AND REALITY. The Ararat Advertiser narrates the oiroum stances of one of those remarkable deaths in tho bush which are often attended by appear anoes equally remarkable and suspicious. The occurrence took plaoe on one of the stations of the Messrs Ghirnside, near atreatbam : — The overseer of the station alluded to has had a shepherd called Simpson in the employ ment for years past, who was understood by his employers and fellow servants to be the son of an English gentleman ; this statement was partly borne out by the fact that he was in the habit of regularly receiving a kind of annuity amounting to £100 from his friends at home. -JJiiagenerallyarrived in half-yearly instalments, andituBna^ocotS;23d4bnat.BO long aBthe money lasted, a/iSaroufle, or wm?H21-3Se*'*er understood as ly1' jolly spree,' was kej&sJP b* the re' client and the favored of his teWg servants.

THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869
THE MONTH. Prince Alfred has bidden ua farewell, and it is to be hoped he bean away with him memories as pleasant as he has left behind. Untrammelled by ceremony, the Queen's son has come and gone whithersoever he listed, and he has thus had a real opportunity of knowing and becoming known to a pretty fair proportion of the community* The enter tainment of Bach a guest involved no light responsibility, and it is a matter of congratula tion that the people have acquitted themselves to perfection — neither displaying snoh in difference as would canee the Prince to feel himself among strangers, nor debasing them selves by intrusive fionkeyism. Thanks to the almost unexceptional good taste of the people, his sojourn in Victoria has been a round of genuine enjoyment. Experience has shown that custom con wither even the charm attaohing to the presence of a real live prinoe — yet it would bo a libel on the community to Bay that the absence of demonstrativeness prooeeded from any element of...

He was an old colonist, and h6 remembered that when Mr King first came before the 'West Bourke constituency he received several letters from highly influen tial citizens of Melbourne strongly recommend ing Mr King, but still he determined to pro ceed to Melbourne, and make inquiries respect ing him. Those inquiries so satisfied him of the character of Mr King that ho went back pre pared to do all in his power to assist in securing his return. The opini...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. His Royal Higliu cud the Duke of Edinburgh left Adelaide on the 19th ult., carrying with him, aa he did on a former ocoasion, the best wishes of the colonists. His visit this time has been a very pleasant one, and the more so aa there was none of that obtrusive fuss and burdensome ceremony which were displayed on the. former occasion. The three great events which were prominent in his late visit wore, the ball, the ceremony of laying the foundation stone of the new Sailors' Home at Adelaide, and the raoea at the old Racooourso. The first was specially for the ladies, and they enjoyed it immensely. The second had more of an offioiol oharaoter about it than any ceremony in which bis Royal BighneiL took port, ana very appropriate it was to inaugurate a' work whioh is intended for the speoial benefit of a class to whioh his Royal Highness belongs ; and the third was for all and sundry. In ad dition to these public gathering* there were one or two pleasant ones of a more...
QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869
QUEENSLAND. A murderous assault, says the Courier, was committed on Tuesday by some soldiers of the 50th regiment on a constable named Coolahan. It appears that, about 6 o'clock p.m., Coolahan, who had come down from his station at lpswicb in tue morning witn. some prisoners, went into a house off Charlotte-street, at the rear of the Red Lion Hotel. A party of four soldiers and some prostitutes were in the house, and immediately on Coolahan's entering, he was attacked and knocked down. The cowardly fellows seem to have all set upon him, some using their belts, and others kicking him wher ever they could. They then threw him out into the yard, where he was found by the neigh bours quite senseless, and' severely injured both externally and internally. His head and' other parts of his body are much out, and judging from the fact that he boa vomited a great quantity of blood, it ia thought by Dr Hobbs, who has attended him, that he has re ceived a seriouB internal injury. The ooour reno...
