DESTRUCTIVE FIRE IN BALLARAT. A tire broke out, 12th inat., about 1 o'clock, at the Works of the Great North-west Com pany's No. 1 shaft, and the whole of the sur face plant, housings, and firewood, . excepting one or two outhouses, haB been destroyed. We gather, the details from the Star. By the time tho Plough toll-gate was reached, the flames could be soen in large force, one large stack of firewood being on tire, and the wind, which blew from tho north-west, sending the flames towards the largo ? mass of housing where the company's valuable engines, boilers, and all the appurtenances of : the ? shaft were situated. Tho chief aim at onco was'.to do what was possible to save the,. housing aud machinery, but there waB. little , or no water, and the immense stacks of fire wood lay close by, and all to windward.

NATTAI, NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 29 March 1869

NATTAI, NEW SOUTH WALES. Nattai, or the New Sheffield of Australia an the New South Welshmen love to call it, is a village and district in the county of Camden, named after a creek which has several picturesque foaturoa, one of which is aolooted tor the oooompanying illustration. The celebrated Fitzroy ironworks are in tho town ship, and give employment to about 150 persons. The following description of the Fitzroy iron and coal minea in from ? the Sydney Morning Herald : — ' Some where about 15 years ago, a large deposit of iron ore was disolosed on the Southern-road, about half way from Sydnoy to Goulburn. Tho land waa eagerly purchased, and great expeota tiom were cherished that a prosperous iron manufacture would soon be established. From that day to thia these expectations have been perpetually renewed and perpetually disap pointed.

GROUP OF TANNESE NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 29 March 1869

GROUP OF TANNESE NATIVES. As recent events have brought the natives of Tanna prominently before the public, it is deemed a suitable occasion for presenting some portraits of them. The island, the largest in the southern portion of the New Hebrides group, 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 Eromanga, whore he was massacred. Williams left behind him three converted Polynesians to commenoe 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 preision has been made upon the heathen mind, the success of missionary effort at Tanna has not been so marked as in some other islands of Polynesia. The visits now made are of a very different character from that of the mis sionaries. The planters of Queens land are anxious for cheap labor, and to procure it are importing natives from the isla...

LAKE MORA, NEAR THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 29 March 1869

LAKE MORA, NEAB THE MURRAY. Lake Moira may be described as an immense morass, which at times is perfectly dry and fed over by iheep and cattle, but which is annually filled by the floods of the Murray. The river flowB right through it, and the water of the river poors into the moragg on both sides gradually along a number of small creeks, by which the bed of the morass is intersected. On the fall of the river, the water recedes by the game means, leaving a series of lagoons or lakes. The Murray, which along the whole of its course exhibits the peculiarities of all deltaic rivers, here displays them in a very prominent and observable manner. The banks on either side are raised in such a manner that there is a fall back from the stream into the lakes. The appearance is ai if the channel had been dug oat and the earth thrown on either side. The-1 'trees along the river coarse are very heavy and umbrageous, and have a picturesque appearance. In the area oc cupied by the morass or lakes ...

OUTING AT CAPE SCHANCK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 29 March 1869

OUTING AT CAPE SCHANCK. Holiday-making is not so difficult a matter for the people of Melbourne now as it was some ten years ago. If you then ventured forty or fifty miles out of town, you had to arrange your business affairs, pay a visit te your banker, and see that for a week, at least, your absence would not seriously derange your schemes; but thanks to railways,, steam boats, &o., you can now make .such an exoursion in the briefest' intervals of labor, and the number of comfortable hotels whioh, have been established for excursionists in by-nooks and corners give comfort and con venienoe,° where formerly the only resource was to camp out with your feet, to the fire, your head on the flap of your saddle, and the prospeot of waking in the morning aching all over, with the long-extinguished embers moot ing the confidence you had reposed in them , when you trusted your weary trotters out of your beots.

CRIME AMONG THE ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 29 March 1869

CRIME AMONG THE ABORIGINES. In1- justice ? to the Victorian aborigines, it must be said that crimes of a serious cha racter have not been frequent among them of late years, and we had begun to hope that in their regard civilisation wag developing some what better then it usually does among '.' the inferior races,' when there turned up two occurrences absolutely fatal to the theory. For example, we toko the following from the Oipps Land Times of 13th inst. : — ' It has been reported that ' Paddy ' and his gin, two well-known aboriginals, were, murdered and buried in the Band at Lake Tyers, olose to the aboriginal station, about four months ago. This statement was made by the blacks, and the occurrence was also mentioned by a gentleman on whom the utmost reliance can be placed. It is quite time steps wore taken to ascertain the truth of the matter.' From another district comes intelligence of another atrocity about the perpetration of which there can be no doubt whatever: — 'A brutal ...

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, induoed so many thousands to wend their way to the course ag to make this the most numerously attended meeting ever held in South Australia. Appearances were very much against the Prince if he did not enjoy it. At all events he deserved it, for in everything he 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 his equerries, the Hon. E. Yorke and Lieutenant Haig, Mr Morris, the Provincial Aide-de-camp, and one or two officers of the Galatea. Scoroh ing hot as it was, he went into the racing with a will, and witnessed all the events at which he was present from the stewards' plat form over the judge's box. ...
