' BIND OF HOPE ' COMPANY,!' I'LOODINQ-OUT OF NU11BEII TWO SHAFT. Wo regret to have to record that the No. 2 shaft was ' swamped-out 'on Friday afternoon, and so quickly did the water rise that by a little after six o'clock the water had filled the whole of the lower workings, up to the cap-pieces of the .chamber. Fortunately for the lives of the men employed, the occurrence s happened iust ds the four o'clock shift of men was going to work, and before they had got to -the nethermost parts of the mine; and thus about seventy-five men had timo to reach the sur face before the main reef drivb was quite filled. The last men to be hauled up wore Mr Ward, mining manager, arid Mr Smith carpenter, who, be fore anally relinquishing the mine, made strenuous exertions to save some of the horses, but without avail. They succeeded in loosing throe of them, but the water continued to rise so fast that it was found there, would be no time for the pro cess of lashing to be gone through; and all nin...

DETERMINED SUICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 September 1866

DETERMINED SUICIDE. A deliberate suicide was committed in Vincent street, Daylesford, on Thursday afternoon, tho Gth inst. From the Express, we learn that ' a Prussian named Frederick Michael Henrioh Kastner entered the shop of ' Mr Gutheil, the chemist, early that morning, and asked for mice poison. Mr Gatheil declined to sell the powder, unless Kastner should bring a witness to vouch, for his character. Kastner went away accordingly, and roturned with a carpenter named Winsch, and upon the faith of the latter's representations, the poison, duly labelled, was supplied. About two hours later Winsch came baok and ex pressed fear that the purohasor intended to take the powder himself. Mr Gatheil . informed. Dr. Jones of what had been stated, and the latter went over with Winsch to the Manchester Hotel. They found Kastner smoking his pipe before the bar fire, apparently quite well and composed. ' He not only denied having any intention to destroy him self, but declared he 'had thrown t...

It . appears that ? a party of eight Chinamen ?were some time' since working on' a portion of the Hopeful Company's ground. When the comr pany found this oat, the Chinamen {were sued for encroachment, and the consequence was that they had to leave the ground, on which they had sunk a shaft to the depth of §0 feet. /They,; then went to work nt the , Green-hills, and in a short time, suoceeded in bottoming a new shaft at ? a depth of 70 feet, from which' they were gettiag some good returns up to the .time the accident occurred;' On Friday, morning, as usual, four of the Chinamen (three of whom were : brothers) went below to send up some washdirt.

'''' : Th'e Kegislra'r-G-eheral's report on the' vital siiatistica' of Melbourne and the suburbs for the month ending the 31st of July last, is published in last night's Government Gazelle. The number of deaths during the month was 268, those of females numbering 145, and those of males 123. The deaths in July were fewer by 73 than those in June. They were above the average for July extending over soven years, but not more so than might be expected from the increase of popula tion. The mean temperature was half a degree lower than the average. Males contributed 54 per cent, and females 46 per cent, to the mortality of the month. _ Forty, per cent, of the deaths were of children who had not attained their fifth year. This is a lower proportion of infant mortality than that which obtained in the same month of any of the six previous years. In July, 1865, and also in July, 1864, 44 per cent, of the deaths were of children under five ; 4...

Indeed, it may be questioned whether the manner in which the, proceed-     ings passed off should be most gratifying   to the new Governor of the colony, to whom it was sought to do honor, or to those over whose destinies he has been sent to preside.

HONOLULU, THE CAPITAL OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 September 1866

HONOLULU, THE CAPITAL OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. The Sandwich Islands are situated in the northern Pacific Ocean, and occupy a position nearly equidistant from the coast of America and Japan ; their geographi- cal position is thus one which gives them an import ance, politically and commercially, which they would not otherwise possess, being as it were a stepping stone between two worlds. The origin of the islands is un- doubtedly to be traced to volcanic agency. This is very apparent in the case of Hawaii, where   two mountains, Manna Kea and Manna Loa, have been tossed up to a a height of about 14,000 feet. As might be expected, from their volcanic origin, the islands are destitute of the useful or valu- able metals. The soil is generally thin and poor, but there are tracts of fer- tility at bases of mountains and in the valleys, where   large herds of cat-       tle are fed for the   supply of whalers and...

He was born in the year 1830, in Penang, or Prince of Wales Inland, where his father and progenitors have been carrying on, for the last century, an extensive business as merchants .and contractors. Mr Kong Meng left Penang in the year 1847, (after having received a thorough education in English, French and Malay, at an English school), for the purpose of visiting Mauritius : and other places ; and in his voyage,       which extended over six years, he traded to various places in the East.

CHINESE IMMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 September 1866

CHINESE IMMIGRANTS. : The sketch by our artist, repre sents the arrival of a batch of Chinese immigrants, gives 'a graphic im- . pression of a scene which, since it has become a matter of such frequent occurrence, has long ceased to be a novelty to colonial residents. Some years ago, and more especially during the height of the 'gold fever,' the Chinese element constituted a 'pretty, large item of the colonial population, there being then be     tween 40,000 and 50,000 of them who had found their way to Victoria, attracted hither by the same cause as led to such an extensive immigration- from various parts of Europe. The subsequent reaction, however, tended to check the stream of immigration from China, as it did that from other sources, and the Chinese population in the colony is now estimated at from 20,000 to 25,000. The district of Knung Tong seems to be the source of supply, and   they arrive in the colony at the rate of about 2000 per ann...
