Lake Boloke is a lareo fresh-water lake between Ararat and Mort lako, but there are a number of salt lakes in the vicinity, which produce coarse salt by evaporation in the summer season. The principal salt lake is that of Parupa, which contains .the strongest brine of all the lakes in the locality, yielding on ah average 30 per cent, of salt. This lake is nearly half a mile in circumference, and, although only two feet in depth, has never been known to .he dry. It is upon this lake vthat the salt works of Mrs Maedonald, widow, are situate. The process of manufacture is similar to that adopted in England. The l-riue is boiled in shallow pans to a cortaiu consistency ; it is then takqn out and heaped in a shed heated by a flue.

AN AGREEABLE SURPRISE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 December 1866

AN AGREEABLE SURPRISE. An agreeable surprise is reported as follows by the Gippslander of last week :— 'i Among the pas sengers by a lately arrived Liverpool 'ship-was a lady who had been separated by 16,000 miles of ocean, through her disliko to water, from her hus band, to whom she was united in a village closely adjoining the largest town in Warwickshire, in 1851. Within three years of this time' the husband, who 'was a steady and industrious farm bailiff, caught the gold fever, and having some' relations already iu Victoria, ho determined to emigrate, when, after using every argument in favor of the antipodes that one who is struck with his malady so well knows how to use, it was ultimately agreed that he should do so, but alone, for 'his' wife of scarcely three years would rather part with him than risk the voyage. The parting came, and she returned to her friends, who wore pretty well off in this world's goods, and contented herself again with a single life, occasionally relie...

DESTRUCTION BY FIRE OP THE OLD OLYMPIC THEATRE. The fire which broke- out on Thursdaj' morning, 29tli tilt., at this Theatre; was far moro serious than was at first thought. It appeal's that the fire was first discovered, shortly after one o'clock, by constable Delaney, No. 104, who, in passing the front of the promises, noticed a lurid glare . inside. He at once raised an alarm, and almost immediately after the lire burst through the -windows in the upper stories of the premises. Delaney, knowing that there were persons sleeping in that part of the building which formed the Turkish Baths, forced the front entrance, and succeeded in arousing a man and a ?woman who had charge of the bath.

OPOSSUM SHOOTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 December 1866

OPOSSUM SHOOTING. The opossums, of which there are various species, are nocturnal animals, nearly the size of a cat, who nestle in trees, and live on birds and in sects, &c. Their greatest peculiarity is their pre nwture production of their young, which are born in a state of development scarcely comparable to that of an ordinary foetus a few days after conception. Incapable of motion, barely exhibiting the rudiments of limbs or other external organs ; rarely more than a few grains ., in weight at birth, these minute specimens of vitality attach ? themselves to the teats of their mothers, and remain fixed there until they have acquired a degree of. development an alogous to that in whioh other animals ore bom. Amongst the marsupial of Australia perhaps the opossums are the most singular. They ore chiefly sought after on account, of their beautiful furs, out. of which are riiauufactured those opossum rugs wliich are in such ropate, and so extensively used by the goldseekers o...

The fifth: Intercolonial Rifle Match '?was brought to a olose at six p. hi., on Saturday 8th inst., New gonth Wales obtaining a . victory by the very, largo number of ninety points. , To add to the chagrin which Bach a result has created, this is the second successive matoh which New South 'Wfilea has won, gnd their . chances of securing possession of the shield are proportionately increaaod from the fact of tho next match having to bo shot on their own ground. In tho selection of the representatives of this colony, it iB questioned whether the best ten httve beon chosen. The complaint urged by tho Victorians for their want of success at the last match- shot at Sydney was that muny of , onr best men could not spare time from their business to go to Sydney, and their tenm wna consequently weaker than would have been the case had tho shooting taken place at Sand ridge.
