CRIME AMONG THE ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869

CRIME AMONG THE ABORIGINES. In justioe to the Victorian aborigines, it must be said that '.crimes of a serious oha raoter have not been frequent among them of late years, and we had begun to hope that in their regard civilisation was developing some what bettor then it usually does among ' t&e inferior races,' when there turned up two occurrences absolutely fatal to the theory. For example, wo take the following from the Oipps Land Times of 18th inst. : — 'It has boon reported that ' Paddy ' and hia gin, two well-known aboriginals, were murdered and buried in tho sand at Lake Ty'ers, oloBe to tho aboriginal station, about four months ago. This statement was made by the blabks, and the oocurrenco was also mentioned bw a gentleman on whom the utmost reliance can be placed. It is quite time steps were taken to ascertain the truth of the matter.' From another district comes intelligence of another atrooity about the perpetration of wWph $heye pan, bo no dopfet whoever ?--;?? A b...

PRINCE ALFRED IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869

PRINOE ALFRED IN VICTORIA. The arrival of H.B.H. the Duke of Edin burgh in Viotoria was the aabjeot which most of all others engaged the attention of the in habitants of Melbourne on the 22nd nit. It was expected that the Galaten wonlrl have reached the Heads on Sunday night, so as to enable the Prince to take advantage of the earliest dawn to have his vessel piloted through to Hobson's Bay by seven o'clock a.m. at the latest. At that hoar a few foot policemen, with about eight mounted1 troopers, were in waiting to maintain a clear roadway and pre vent- any undue crushing which might occur Nothing was heard of the Galatea, however, until hours afterwards, chiefly owing to the break-down of the telegraph, which usually meets with mishaps when it is most desirable that it should be all right. Telegraphic com munication was, however, kept up with Queenscliff, but no word came -thence until several hours after tho police had retired from inhospitable-looking Sandridge. At a quarter }-u»...

THE PRINCE'S MEETING AT ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869

THE PRINCE'S MEETING AT ADELAIDE. The races held on the old Adelaide race course, 19th, February, in honor of the visit of the Duke of Edinburgh, were a complete success. The proclamation of a Government holiday, and the presence of the distinguished guest, combined with splendid weather, induced ' so jmany thousands to wend their way to the course as to make this the most numerously attended meeting ever held in South Australia. Appearances were very muoh against the Prince if he did not enjoy it. At all events he j deserved- it, for in everything bo showed the true spirit of a sportsman. A few minutes before the advertised time for the first race he drove up to the Grand Stand, attended by bis equerries, the Hon. E. Yorko and Lieutenant Haig, Mr Morris, the Provincial Aide-de-camp, and one or two officers of the Galatea. Scorch ing hot as it wus, he went into the racing with a will^a and witnessed all the events at which he was present from the stewards' plat-, form over the judge...

GLENLYON, FRANKLIN AND DAYLESFORD AGRICULTURAL SHOW           The fifth annual show of the above society was held at the yard opposite the Farmers' Arms and the whole was not inferior to the display of last year. Considering that preparations   for the' exhibition were commenced   later than usual, and the society was deprived   this season of the usual grant-in-aid, they have no reason to be dissatisfied with the result of their efforts. We have no doubt that had more publicity been given to the show, that both the number of entries and the attendance of the   public would have been larger. A well-known farmer at Mount Franklin informed us that residents of that neighborhood were unaware till Tuesday that the show was about   to take place, and some owners of stock were heard to express regret that they did not know of the approaching event in time to en...

It could not have been contemplated, even by the most sanguine speculator, that Kyneton would in so short a time have attained snob a position in the racing world ; and its elevation, whioh is as permanent as it is sound, reflects great credit on those who have worked to render it worthy of the position it now enjoys.

So little interest appeared to be manifested in it that only those living in immediate proximity to the locale of the exhibition seeined' to bo aware that anything of an unusual 'character was taking place to disturb the' wonted tranquillity of the town. The funds of the' society would appear to be at a low jabbj for at one time it seemed donbtful whether the society would give an exhibition this season, and it was only,' it is understood, by temporarily co-operating with the local Association' of Vignerpns, and thus securing funds for the bulk of the; wine prizes, that they ventured to make the' an nouncement.
