MESSRS. GUTHRIE AND LARNACH'S WOODWARE FACTORY, DUNED1N, NEW ZEALAND. The application of machinery to ? wood- working is a very important practical invention. By meauB of this clasB of machinery the thousands of articles of necestity and convenience which even the most humble must possess are quickly and cheaply produced, and others, which the high cost of labour would place beyond the reach of any but the wealthy, can be manufactured and gold at a moderate price.

TERRIBLE ACCIDENT AT ECHUCA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 May 1877

TERBIBLE ACCIDENT AT ECHUCA. The Echuca correspondent of The Argus, on April 16, sent the following account of this shocking disaster :— A terrible accident happened at the works in connexion with the new Murray bridge to-day. Soon after 4 o'clock one of the ' travellers ' on the Moama side of the river, 50ft. from the ground, upon which seven men were working,' suddenly fell, fearfully crushing all the poor fellows. The traveller at the time of the accident was being employed to lift the dead-weight used for sinking the cylinders from the top of one of the piers. Too much of the material, consisting of railway iron and bluestone, was taken off one side, and the cylinder canted over, struck the traveller, which in turn was overbalanced, knocked away the girders underneath it, and came crashing sideways to the ground with all upon it and about 50 tons of the loading. The men were fearfully hurt. Their names are William Godfrey, William Herbert, William Phillips, George James Maddrill...

NEW GUINEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 May 1877

NEW GUINEA.   A somewhat humorous as well as an interesting lecture on New Guinea was given a few weeks ago by the Rev. W. G. Lawes of the London Missionary Society, at the Collins-street Inde- pendent Church. From the account Mr. Lawes furnished of the results of two years' residence, it appeared that his travels had been limited to the southern coast of tbe narrow strip which forms the eastern prolongation of the island. Some 200 miles of coast line from Yule Island to China Straits had been explored by him, and harbours and freshwater streams found to be numerous. The natives were distinct from the Papuans or blacks in the western portions of New Guinea. They spoke numerous dialects, and were made up of many peoples, but all seemed to belong to the Malay race. They had light complexions, did not practise cannibalism, and as a rule restricted themselves to one wife. Sometimes chiefs had two or three. The reason one chief gave why he had not two wives was that, he foun...

SERIOUS FIRE IN SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 May 1877

SERIOUS FIRE IN SYDNEY. A TELEGRAPHIC despatch from Sydney on April 14 stated : — 'A serious fire broke out about midnight at the establishment of     Mr. Mountcastle, hatter, George- street. The inmates, who were asleep at the time, consisted of Mr. Mountcastle, his wife and   his daughters, and Mrs. Merritt, a friend from New Zealand. The fire appears to have broken out in a room over the shop, occupied by a Mr. James, agent for a Melbourne firm, but in what way it commenced has not been ascertained. The flames spread with great rapidity, so much so that they had extended along the corridor and to the upper bedrooms before the inmates were aware of their perilous position. A scene of indescribable confusion followed. With the flames at the doors of the bedrooms and suffocating smoke penetrating everywhere, there was not time   for the inmates to put on a particle of clothing, and in their night dresses they rushed, some for the w...

We here present an engraving, prepared from a photo graph, of the works at the bridge in course of construction across the Murray at Echuca, showing the mode of working and the system of loading the cylinder piers, to which the late unfortunate accident was attributable. A full account of the disaster appears in another part of our issue. BA VATU, ISLAND OF VANUA BALAVU, FIJI. The scene depicted is one of the many charming views - on the island of Vanua Balavu.

THE LATE HON. EDWARD COHEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 May 1877

THE LATE HON. EDWARD COHEN. By the death of Mr. Cohen, which took place on April 13, Victoria lost an old colonist and a good citizen. Mr. Cohen was born in London in the year 1822. He emigrated with his parents to New South Wales in December. 1833, being at that time only 11 yeara of age. The ship which brought him to Australia waa under the command of Captain Towns, who afterwards achieved so high a position as a successful colonist. At a comparatively early age Mr. Cohen was in business with his father as a wholesale grocer in Sydney. In 1842 he came to Melbourne, and joined Mr. B. Francis in tbe business of an auctioneer. The partnership having been successfully carried on for a number of years, both members of the firm retired from business, and in 1853 Mr. Cohen returned to New South Wales. The climate did not appear to suit the health of hia family, and in a short time he was back again in Melbourne, and in business as a general merchant. He next joined Messrs. S. H. Cohen (h...
