BURKE'S EARLY CAREER. The Ararat, Advertiser gives the following account of Burke's arrest in that district some few years ago : — lt appears that on Thursday, the   16th October, 1862, Burke, alias Robert Clusky, stuck up a man named Pope, opposite the point of Mount Mistake, on the Ballarat and Ararat road, and while, ordering him to deliver his money, pre- sented and snapped a pistol which did not go off - (a subsequent examination proved that it was not loaded) ; the robber instantly drew a second, saying, "I have another one yet ;" he   then took a £5 note from Pope and left   him. There were but two mounted constables (O'Shanassy and Runting) on the station at the time when the information was given, and their sergeant   Dillon. who was in charge, immediately despatched in pursuit, the formaer to Mount Cole and the latter   in the direction of Yalla-y-poora.

The coast is abrupt, rocky, beaten by a heavy -surf, and almost inaccessible. Some coral and coral debris are found on the beach of the small corea, but there are no distinct reefs of coral. ' The highest point of the island attains an . altitude of 1109 feet above sea level. ' The east side of the island, on which the principal settlement is placed, presents a picturesque: appear- ance. An amphitheatre rises from the sea, luxuriantly wooded nearly to its Bummit, and hounded on each: side by precipitous cliffs nnd naked rocks of rugged and fan tastic forms. Scattered over its wooded declivity are the simple habitations of the islanders, half concealed by tho nbnndant verdure. Tho soil is good...

ST. KILDA BATTERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 October 1866

ST. KILDA BATTERY. The scene represented by the sketch of our artist is one reflecting great credit on the volunteer force of the colony. During the end of 1864 and commencement of 1865, the St. Kilda Artillery corps (then under the command of Captain Balfour) threw up a small earthwork to reoeive two 32-pounder guns, sods and scrub being used for the embrasures and parapet, the drawings beingsupplied;by Mr Strachan, of the Engineers, and the work carried out under his superintendence; the site having also been his selection. Thia battery was used on several occasions,. but the explosion of the guns acting on the loose sandy material very soon rendered the work useless as a pro tection to the guns. At the commencement of 1866, when Captain Balfour (much to the regret of the com pany) resigned his commission, Captain Sargood, being appointed to the command, communicated with Captain Parnell, of the Engineer corps, who undertook to repair and finish the battery, and at once proceeded ...

MARBLE WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 November 1866

MAEBIiE WORK. The statnary marble mantelpiece which we Have'. engraved represents one of a pair, exhibited by, Messrs Huxley, Parker and Co., Melbourne,- and. is well worth' notice, from its being entirely mana facturod and designed by this firm ont of the finest quality of Italian marble. Its principal * attraction is an elaborate frieze of fruits and ilowors, most artistically executed by a talented Swiss carver (Francis Fallet), who can also be credited with the ornamented parts of tkepiece. The other exhibit bears on the blockings two classic heads, carved by Mr J; Gilbert, which are exquisitely finished, and will stand the closest scrutiny for both, workmanship and ? effect. ? In close proximity to these will be found a monumental figure, in statuary marble, and pe destal. The former, a kneeling child, has attracted general attention, from the very natural and life-like attitude which the artist (Mr J. Gilbert) has bo happily ren- .. . dored.
