?- SWEABING-IN OP SIB JAMES5 ... ????-!. - ???? FERGUSSON; ' The Bight. Honorable Sir James Ferguison, Bart.V the new Governor of South Australia, was duly inducted into the vice-regal office on; Tuesday,l.i6i;h February, 1869. With a view to invest the ceremony with additional interest, „ the swearing-in took' place in tho Adelaide Town Hall, which was densely crowded! Hither to ' Governors have taken the oaths in some small apartment at Government House or at the Treasury offices in the pr sence of the ' prh -' oipal inhabitants,' whoever that indefinite .term might include, and it was a great improvement that' the ceremony should take place in a ball where the proceedings could bo witnessed by the populace and. could pasa off with such eclat and enthusiasm as the importance of the occa sion demanded. The gallery in the hall was specially '3' t ipart for ladies who might wish to be prtne'nt, and here a galaxy of beauty and fashion assembled which has not often been surpassed in So...

COUNTRY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 March 1869

COUNTRY NEWS. The Foundation Stone of a new Baptist Chapel was laid in Warrnombool, on the 23rd Febrnary.   Mr Malyon, of Skipton-street, Ballarat, has applied for a patent to make a cement on Ballarat, which he considers will equal Port- land cement, at about half the price. Dunolly still maintains its repute as the region of nuggets. A twenty-ounce nugget was found on 22nd ult., on the old lead, by a man known as Maori Bill. Owing to an increase in the rates of ex- change charged on London, the buying price of gold was raised threepence per ounce by the Sandhurst banks on the 19th ult. Mr William Williams, of Ironbark, Tarna- gulla, recently fell down a shaft 70 feet, from one of the rungs of the ladder breaking. Cu- riously as well as fortunately, he escaped with a fracture of the ankle and some bruises.

A DUST STORM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 29 March 1869

- A DUST STORM. , The city and suburbs were, 3rd inst., visited by the severest dust storm which has been experi enced for many years. At about seven o'clock a.m., Wednesday, the wind, whioh bad been blow ing all night from the north, suddenly chopped round to the west, bringing with it vast olouds of duet. For nearly half an hour Melbourne was involved in darkness. Out of doors it was almost impossible to breathe without swallowing a mouthful of gritty dust, and tho wind was so violent that locomotion was impos sible. In about half an hour the violence of the wind somewhat moderated, but the dust continued to be disagreeably felt until nearly noon. Singularly enough, the dust appeared to have arisen on ,the Werribee Plains, which looked as if they were on fire. We have not heard of. any fatal aooidents during the storm; although several houses were unroofed, and a large amount of property was seriously 'injurad. Very little' '.damage was done at Emerald-bill and Sandridgo, but in t...

THE YARRA GRAVING DOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 29 March 1869

THE YARRA GRAVING DOCK. Within the last few months a very effioient ' graving dock has been completed on the south bank of the Yarra, just below the Spencer street ferry; and it has proved a great ac commodation to the intercolonial steamers and all such 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 dock, but for a patent slip, whioh was considered to he ex tremely necessary on the banks of the Yarra, and which it was expected would have been executed for a very small outlay as compared with the capital invested in the present graving dock. It may be stated that, before commenc ing on their present site, the firm referred to held a lease of other land situated much lower down the river, and consequently farther away from the shipping. On testing the ground, they beaame convinced from the nature of the soil that the influx of water would ...

HAMILTON PASTORAL AND AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 29 March 1869

HAMILTON PASTORA.L AND AGRICUL TURAL SOCIETY'S SHOW. On Wednesday 10th inst. the seventeenth show was held at the yards, ; Hamilton. The day was fine, and there was a large attendance ; but the exhibits, although perhaps more numerous than hi any preceding joar, wero not sufficient- to induce that healthy competition necessary to tho active promotion of agricultu ral enterprise. In the 'Agricultural Produce' department there were no exhibits in classes 3, 6, 9, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, or 19 ; in other de partments there was little or no competition ; and in many cases, the exhibits were unworthy of notice. Thero are evidently faults some where, and we think the general management susceptible of a little improvement. - Praotical men— agriculturists — might be added to the committee, the admission to whioh might not be prohibited by a threo-guinoa fee. The en trancoifoo, too, oharged to exhibitors might be reduood to a nominal thing, and so remove a bar to many exhibitors, Tho expenses of...

THE INDUSTRIAL SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 29 March 1869

THE INDUSTRIAL SCHOOLS. The Industrial Soheols, both at Sanbury and at Prince's-bridge, are in a highly satisfactory state as regards the health of the children, though their crowded condition cannot .be taken as a happy sign, unless looked at in the light that tue unfortunate outcasts ore so many lives saved from mUery and fsoulB '- from ??? sin, .though - it would be , too much to hope that of these hundreds of orphans nurtured : in crime, none will succumb -to the effeots of. evil early instilled into their minds. The best that can be dope, however, is to- give them good food, clothing and education ; and) when employment, or the certain means of finding it, has been given to them, it will in a great measure depend upon their own innate energies - and tendencies for : good or evil to make or mar their own future. At present, in con sequences of the fear of smallpox being communicated to the inmates of the various schools,' all' new admissions from Melbourne and its neighborhood a...

GRAIN AND 'WINE SHOW AT OASTLE ' .?'-?;'' '?:!; ;;! -MAINE; ?-? -;! r^,. The agricultural shbtr on the 17th inst. at Oastlemaine was far inferior to any that has taken plaoe there for some! 'years, whether regarded in poiritof exhibits or in attendance .So little interest appeared to be manifested in it that only those living in immediate proximity to the locale of the. exhibition Beemed to be aware that anything of an unusual character was taking place to disturb the wonted tranquillity of the town. The funds of tho sooiety would appear to be at a low ebb, for at one time it seemed doubtful whether tho society would give an exhibition this season, and it was only, it is understood, by temporarily co-operating with the local Association of Vignorons, and thus securing funds for the bulk of the wine prizes, that they ventured to make the an nouncement. The chief features yesterday wero, indeed, the wino and fruit classes ; for, although tho exhibition was osten sibly for a competitiv...

The show itself was a deoided improvement on that of the previous year, in all the principal classes, viz. : — Wheat, oats, flour, &o. ; and if the aocioty can con trive to increase in future the exhibition of orohard fruits and products incidental thereto, they will in time succeed in making their autumnal gathering as popular as their spring one.
