HEIDELBERG RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869

HEii)ELBEE& BA.Cl!S. , There was a large muster on 13th irist., to witness tbetie niceay jug hill which overlooks the coursi) being crowded. Picnics were going on in every direction, and as the day was tine those present appeared to be in the , height of their enjoyment. It is a groat misfortune that the ? course is not a little larger, for the natural features of the country are particularly favor able to racing, besides being very picturesque. Could it be enlarged it won Id bring together more horses, many owners objecting to run there, as it is one continual turn and very much against long striding horses.

TASMANIA. March, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869

TASMANIA. [FROM OUR OWN COBBESPONDBNT.l March. 1869. . Payable gold-fields in Tasmania again loom in the distance. Some fonr parties have lodged claims to the reward offered by the Tasmanian Government for the discovery of auriferous deposits that' will pay for their working. . As described, these have been foand at Fincral. the Den near to Mount Direotion, the West Tamar, and at the Campbell Ranges near to the River Cam. As yet, however, the Den seems the most promising. The gold found in it is of a rough,- shotty character, not water-worn, and two Germans in five weeks have washed some four ounces of gold, one of the nuggets of their finding weighing 1 oz 2 dwt. A Mr James Gardiner, from Gonnewarre, Victoria, is satisfied that the preoions metal is to be had in as. great abundance at the West Tamar as ever it was found at Bendigo or Castlemainer ~ Water flows in when sinking to any depth, and machinery is therefore necessary to pump it iouC' ,, This Mr Gardiner cannot supply, and ...

GROUP OF TANNESE NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869

GROUP OF TANNESE NATIVES. As reoent events have brought the natives -of Tanna prominently before the public, it is deemed a suitable oooaaion for presenting Borne portraits of them. The island, the largest in the southern portion of the New Hebrides croup, was first brought into notice in conse quence of the fact that the missionary John Williams called there the day before he passed on to Erotnonga, where he waB massacred. Williams left behind him three oonverted Polynesians to commence the work of Christian instruction ; from, that time till now the island has been repeatedly visited by agents of the New Hebrides Mission ; and, although some im pression has been made upon the heathen mind, the sueoess of missionary effort at Tanna has not been so marked as in some other islands of Poljnesia. The visits now made are of a very different character from that of the mis sionaries. The planters of Queens land are anxious for aheap labor, and to procure it are importing natives from the ...

METROPOLITAN HOSPITAL FOR THE INSANE, MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869

METROPOLITAN HOSPITAL FOR THE INSANE. MELBOURNE. Till recently the only institution for the insane in' the colony was the Asylum at the Yarra Bend, about three miles from Melbourne. The ? buildings there, have been ereoted from time to time to meet the crrowine wants of the establishment without any attention being paid to uniformity, either in design or in the materials of their construc tion. Three or four years ago it was contem plated to erect a new asylum on a larger scale, and on a more appropriate site. A commence ment was actually made, but an unfortunate hitoh occurred, and the project was in abeyance till about four months ago when work was resumed. The site chosen for the new building is a por tion of Studley Park, quite close to Kew. It lies on the opposite side of the .Yarra from the old asylum, and on a bank about one hundred and eighty feet above the ordinary level of the river. This high bank, which is well wooded, aooompanies for a considerable .distance the river's...

PBINCE AL FRED ,IN SYDNEY. It was known by' means of tbe electric telegraph that the Galatea . passed Twofold Bay. at about 8 o'clock on .the morning of the 10th instant, and was off the Syd ney Heads at nn early ? hour on the following day. The Rbya Sydney Yaoht Squadron, under the command of Commodore Dan gar, accord ingly left Donblo Bay on Wednes day evening, and, after evolution practice, anchor ed for the night at Watson '8 Bay. At 6 o'clock on the ..same .even ing, the Prince Alfred Yacht Squadron ren dezvoused in Sydney Cove.and also proceeded to Watson's Bay to await the Gala tea's arrival. There the two Bquadrous . ,lay until the follow ing morning, and there tbe gallant crew of each vessel witnessed the auspicious arrival of the Prinoe. For want of wind the squardons were compelled to re main stationary as the stately Galatea swept past, but the cheers that spon taneously arose from the little fleet must have been a pleasant welcome to the Duke. About an hour after the Ga...

NA.TTAI. NEW SOUTH WALES. Nattai, or the New Sheffield of Australia as the New South Welshmen long to call it, is a village and district in the county of Camden, named after a creek whioh has several nietnreaane featnrea, one of whioh ia aeleoted for the illustration given on page 68. The celebrated Fitzroy ironworks are in the town ship, and give employment to about 150 persons, and the following description of the Fitzroy iron mines, from the Sydney Morning Herald, may not be out of plaoe : — *? Some where about 15 years ago, a large deposit of iron ore was disclosed on the Southern-road, about half way from Sydney to Goulburn. The land was eagerly purchased, and great expecta tions : were oherished that a prosperous iron manufacture would soon be established, from that day to this these expectations have been perpetually renewed and perpetually disap-; nointed. The promise h«n always been on tbe' point of being realised, and the performance .has always been post poned. The long d...

LAKE MOIRA, NEAR THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869

LAKE MOIRA. NEAR THE MURRAY. Lake Moira may be deacnbed aa an immense morass, which at times is perfectly dry and fed over by sheep and cattle, but which is annually filled by the floods of the Murray. The river flows right through it, and the water of the river pours into the morass on both aides gradually along a number ol small creeks, by which the bed of the morass is intersected. Oa the fall of the river, the water recedes by the same means, leaving a series of lagoons or lakes. The Murray, whioh along the whole of its conrae exhibits the peculiarities of all deltaic rivers, here displays them in a very prominent and observable manner. The banks on either Bide we raised in such a manner that there ii a fall back from the itream into the lakes. The appe&nnoe is ei ii the channel had been dug «t tai *He earth thrown oa either side. The trees along the river course are very heavy and umbrageous, and have a picturesque appearance. In the area oo cupied by the morass or lake...

BALLARAT AGRICULTURAL AND PASTORAL SOCIETY'S SHOW. . Profiting by the experience of last year, the Ballarat Sooiety chose for its autumn show a site in every way fitted for tho purpose.. Alfred Hall was on 13th inst. the rendezvous of those who take an interest in the products of the farm; and of this class there wns a very fair attendance ; but the townspeople 'oiffier ,'jSfif | not for these things' or orb on Saturday ;toi- much engaged in business to spare the times ; at all events, up' to tho hour (three o'clopli), at whioh we had to leave, the attendance had been no more than moderate. The show itself- was a decided improvement on that of the preViotJS year, in all the principal olasses, viz. :—Whoat; oats, flour, &o. ; and if the sooiety can 'con trive to increase in future the exhibition' of orchard fruits and products incidental thereto, they will in time succeed in 'making ttieir autumnal gathering as popular as their spring ono.

FATAL FIRE AT INGLEWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869

FATAL FIRE AT INGLE WOOD. From the Advertiser we select the following details of this shocking disaster :—' The town of Ingle wood was on the 4th- inst.. alarmed by the ominous sound of the firo-belld Luckily many persons were still about, ans suided bv the reflection cast unon the housee in Brooke-street, they rushed to the rear of the Royal Hotel, and there discovered that the stable loft was one mass of flames. Those who were on the spot released the horses. In about ten minutes after the first ring of the fire-bell, the fire brigade made its appearanbe on the scene with the engine and hook, and the firo was got completely, under in about an hour and a half, leaving the walls comparatively uninjured, but the whole of the woodwork in the loft totally destroyed, a great part of the roof fallen, and a large portion of the racks con sumed from the burning hay falling into them.

THE YARRA GRAVING DOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869

THE YARRA GRAVING DOCK. Within the last few months a very efficient graving dook bos been completed on the south bank of the Ya'rra, just below the^ Spenoer ; Btreet'.-ferry ; and, it has proved a great ao COmmodation to the intercolonial ntnamnrn anil all- suoh, vessels', as trade to the Melbourne Wharf. 'The dock was commenced nearly two years ago, by Messrs Synnott and Hughes, on land leased from Government, not originally for the purposes of a graving dook, but for a patent slip, which was considered to be ex tremely necessary on the banks of the* Yarra, and which it was expected would have been executed for a very email outlay as compared with the capital invested in the present graving dock. It may be stated that, before commeno ing on their present site, the firm referred to held a lease of other land situated much lower down the river, and consequently farthor away from the shipping. On testing the ground, they beoame convinced from the nature of the soil that- the .influx o...

Admission was by ticket, and the proceeds were given to tbe funds of the hos pital ob a thankful oommemoration of Prince Alfred's enonpo from death by tho assassin's ballet. A fancy ball'is always popular, for three reasoni — it costs money, it gratifies the most powerful .of all ' human passions, vanity, and it is uncommon.
