WINE, WHEAT AND TOBAOtib^A , [border. tost, 14th august.].'. The farmers this year have learnt a lesson they are not likely, to forget in a hurry. They now see :thov absurdity of. putting all their eggs ? into one basket. Till lately, 'wheat crops were all the go ; but now the' farmers have to ': feed horses, pigs, and fowls Mwitji ? that cereal; and after they have . done that,'-: they, have' to try and sell the balance 'of their prop at 3s' per bushel.

FATAL TERMINATION TO A LAW SUIT [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 September 1867

FATAL TERMINATION TO A LAW SUIT ACTION FOR MALICOUS PROSECUTION.   Ownership of Racehorses. — The case of Dickson and Wife v. Yeomans, now in course of trial before the Chief Justice and a jury of, four, is the most strongly contested case of the kind that has been tried in this colony. It has already lasted five days, and does not appear to be half over yet. It has arisen out of a series of disputes relative to the ownership of certain racehorses, which disputes. have been repeat edly before the public in various ways during the last year or two. The present notion has been based upon the prosecution of Mrs Diokson, at the instance of Mr Yeomans, for having stolen the racing more Zenobia and the race horse Kildare.- Yeomans has got possession of those, animals under a bill of sale from Miss     Dickson, the plaintiff's daughter, as security for certain advances which he had made to her. Mrs Dickson claimed these horses as her own property, and...

GREAT FIRE AT NELSON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 September 1867

GBEAT FIBE AT NELSON. We condense the following from the Nelson Colonist : — - Shartly before six o'clock on Wednesday morning, 14th Au gUBt, fire was discovered in 1ho store of Mr Thomas Askew, Bridge-steet. Mrs Askew, whose husband is from home, first ob served the fire, and her cries alarmed Mr James WilMe, -who : generally sleeps on his father's premises adjoining. He at tempted to extinguish the fire, which was then confined to a small office behind Mr Askew's front shop. Here it is believed a candle had unwisely been left burning, and which, burning to the socket, had probably ignited some loose papers in the narrow and confined room, and the fire rapidly spread. In con sequence of some hitch in the - removal of the large engine from the shed at the Government buildings, it did not arrive on the ground until Mr Askew's house was one mass of flames and nearly consumed, and Mr WilMe's buildingB hopelessly on fire. A large crowd assembled, and. the fire brigade were busily playin...

A ROMANCE IN REAL LIFE. This curious story of real life has been com municated to tho Quceii&land Guardian:— . We have recently been made acquainted with one of those romantic circumstances whioh throw in the shade the most thrilling inven tions of the sensation novelist, and give fresh force to the trite remark, that nothing is so strange as real life. It appears that, some years since, the sou and heir of a Scotch baro net of ancient lineage, owning one of ; the oldest and finest castles in the county, in which he resides, committed some .youthful indis cretion, and in order to avoid the consequences; forsook his home and emigrated to Queensland, being then about sixteen years of age. ^ .For. some years he travelled through the northern portions of the colony, now a hutkeeper; : arid then a diggor ; after undergoing the usual ups and downs of the bush, hefinally obtained a situa-. tion as a bullock- driver in oho of the cedar dis tricts.

ATTACK BY WILD HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 September 1867

ATTACK BY WILD HORSES. The incident of which we give a sketch on page four, occurred last summer on theLaohlan plains, N.S.W., to two well known squatters of Riverina. They were travelling in a light-fear - wheeled buggy, with a pair of Gobb and Co.'s coach herses, and when well out on the plain a large herd of wild horses were startled by their approach. One mob bore down towards them headed by a large black stallion, and this animal charged madly to within a hundred yards of the vehicle, when he brought up sud denly, raising his head and roaring savagely as . only suoh creatures can roar, the mob mean while thundering round in wild career. The baggy horses, much startled, were difficult to control. ' One of the gentlemen alighted, and with a branch of stunted scrub kept the brute at bay. Fortunately a wire fence which runs across the plain was within a quarter of a mile, and towards it the party retreated until the gate was gained, when it was hastily passed and bang*! in the face...

MENZIES' HOTEL, MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 September 1867

MENZIES' HOTEL, MELBOURNE. Mr Menzies, an old and respected landlord, is building a splendid hotel, which will be a great ornament to; our, metropolis. The site, chosen is at the corner of William and Bourke Streets — a locality sufficiently near the centre of business, the wool sales, the shipping, and the' railways, and yet enjoying, because of the' absence of 'shops and the. close neighborhood of the cathedral church, a sort of suburban repose. The building has for frontage 100 ft. in Wil liam-street and 132 ft. in ' B«urke-street. ° The ' design, which has been furnished by Messrs Reed and Barnes, presents a building three stories high, and, of imposing appearance. Along the facade of the ground story is an arcade of Romanesque pattern, tlio round, arches supported by iron pillars, marked with a spiral ornnmont. This faces the cool south west, and floored with encaustic tiling will exactly achieve the object sought, and be a delightful little promenade on summer, even ings. At e...
