JAVA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869
JAVA. The Javanese scenes, page 76, are engraved from photographs which were taken by Messrs Woodbury and Page, of Batavia. The one view was taken at Batoe Toelis (which means ?'Written Stones'), a plaoe deemed holy ao eordingto the Mahomedan creed. Be it un derstood that the Javenese profess to be Mahomedans, bat they were formerly Hindoos, though whether followers of Boodh or Brahma, or of both, is not so clear. Independently of the testimony that is famished by their own language, whiob. abounds with Sanscrit words, we have the dearest evidence of their Hindoo origin in the traditions whioh stilf exist re specting their ancient faith, in many of their religions observances to this day, in the nu merous temples and idols peoaliarto the worship of Boodh and Brahma, that are scattered over various parts of the country. The other scene is that of a ferry boat crossing the Tjitaroem, whioh in one of the main rivers of the country. On the right we have a peep into a Javanese village. T...

WELLINGTON. NEW. ZEALAND. Wellington is the name both of a province and of a town at the south end of the Northern . Island of New Zealand. The town is- situated on the west shore of Port Niohelson,. which opens into .Cook's Straits.- In consequence of its possessing the advantage . of a splendid harbor, together with tho oentrahty of its posi tion in relation to the several provinces into whioh New Zealand is, for governmental pur poses, divided, Wellington has been selected as the seat of Government, and when the Panama mail service was instituted, it was made the port for the stoamers. On these accounts it is a place of considerable importance. Theview, page 80, gives an idea of the scenery, which is bold and picturesque. The situation is con sidered to be rather windy. A townsman is said to be known by his walking in the middle of tho street to avoid tiles and shingles, and by clapping his hand to 'his hat at every corner. Mr Dllke halted at Wellington, in his passage from Panam...

THIRD DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869
THIRD DAY. . The New South Wales orioketers were quite buoyant, thinking that 23 runB with no wiokets*: down was an average, that could bo kept up till* the score reaohed the required number, as they had Thomuson. Caffvn. and Hewitt', who had scored little or nothing -in 'the. first innings..' They might have won .the .matoh had not any meannesB been perpetrated, as on the previous night the ground was well watered by some one, of course unknown, so as to prevent Allan and Wills's bowling being dangerous. This very, uncricket-like .swindle met with its deserts, for although it had the eftect of knocking Allan off, it bad also the contrary effect of making Wills ; and, Cosstick dangerous iu ..the: ex treme,, for their bowling kicked most tremendously, knocking up a. piece of turf nearly as big as one's hand every ball. Had the wicket been kept in its previous state there is no 'knowing what would have been the result. ? So diffioult did the bowling play that Caffyn,' Thompson and Hew...

Even when dry and hard, 'the Sydney groand is'.as - slow again as ours,, and when in I ttie soft . condition _ it was^duriug th e receut. match,; nothing could be more opposite than the manner in whteh't.he two gronnrta play.
