PIANOS. . Tho musical is not the least interesting department of the Exhibition, all sorts of instru ments capable of giving ut terance to that motive power which is said to ' charm the savage ear,' being fully repre Bontea. Tho exhibits of Messrs Wilkie, Kilner and Co., piano manufacturers, from the taste ful style in which they are con structed, attract the attention of all visitors to the great hall. 'While lacking in nothing; prized in instruments of this class,' their pianos possess the additional' interest, of ' being altogether of colonial . manu facture, the wood of. which they are made being obtained from a thickly-timbered moun tain range, a few miles from Melbourne. The one we have [selected for illustration sake, .which they name the Cottage Grand, is a most highly finished article. The case is made of blackwood, and the carving, executed by Mr' Trealeld, is of the, most , exquisite design and work mansliip. The scales have been arranged on a now prin- . ciple, which 'ha...

The first of a series of horticultural shows, in con nection with the Intercolonial Exhibition, took place on Saturday ,last,. in the. grounds of the Public' Library, and under tho auspices of the Horticul tural Society of Victoria. . The show had, nothing of an intercolonial character, but' was simply the' springy show of the Horticultural Society, held on a' new site ; arid viewing it in this light, the, display will compare favorably with those of the 'two previous seasons.

THE HOSPITAL BAZAAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 November 1866

THE HOSPITAL BAZAAR. Whatever may be said about bazaars, there can be no doubt that a student of human naturo can get very good food for reflection out of one such ns that recently opened at the old exhibition building. Let a man be as miserly as he will, as cross-grained as he will, as mulish as ho will, and we defy him to go into the midst of such a bevy of beauty as that now to be Been at the exhibition building without leaving behindhim much of his worldly Bub stance._ It may be easy to resist the entreaties of one, but how is it pos sible to run away from'the blandish ments of tho next 1 To attempt to give a detailed description of the contents of the bazaar would-be the task of a Hercules. At two o'clock on Tuesday, the 6th inst., the bazaar was formally opened by Sir James Palmer. He, in a speech of some length, complimented the holders of stalls on the display of goods made. With relation to the subject of raffles, he said that the Attorney General had sent the committee a c...

A Child Scalded to Death. — A lamentable ac cident occurred yesterday morning, at Belvoir, whereby an infant twelve months old, was scalded to death. The poor child's name was Alfred John Brown, and he was a son of Mr H. G. Brown. o£ Belvoir. He was sitting at a table in one of the rooms, placed in a high chair with his back towards the fire. A pot full of boiling water had just been taken off the fire, and during the temporary absence of his mother from the room, the poor child placed his feet against the table, and pushing his chair backwards, he was precipitated head foremost into the pot containing the water. As might be expected death very quickly resulted, and when found by his mother the child was perfectly dead. The grief into .which the family have been plunged at this painful accident may be imagined. — 0. and M. Advertiser, November 6. Courageous Capture. — Early yesterday morning, some Chinamen broke into the store of the Alabama Company, Redan-reef, and were busy, by th...

THE BIRTHDAY OF THE PRINCE OF WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 November 1866

THE BIRTHDAY OF THE PRINCE OF WALES. The birthday of England's future monarch has never been celebrated with more enthusiastic loyalty in Melbourne than on Friday ; and not a few cir cumstances have this year tended to impart addi tional eclat to the festival. The Intercolonial Ex hibition and the contest for the Melbourne Cup have attracted so many visitors from the neigh boring colonies, that the grand spectacle of the day, the volunteer review, might be said to have ? partaken of a somewhat intercolonial character ; and, at all events, wo may assume that the Viotorian demonstration was the most imposing that has taken place in Australia. The Mel bourne racecourse has seldom presented a more exhilarating spectacle. It is needless to say that the seven or eight thousand spectators included tho . elite of Victorian fashion and beauty— the beauty, at all events, not being monopolised by any section of society; and the dress and demeanor of the vast concourse were iill that could he e...
