NAPOLEONVILLE, NEW GALEDONIA.—SEE PAGE 10. NEW CALEDONIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 December 1866

SAPO h J3.Q N V J L L jg, N J'J W QAf( )i) »i)Mf A»— BPn PAflOOi NEW CALEDONIA. A correspondent of the S. M. Herald gives an account of New Caledonia, its products and re sources, from which we take the following ex tract: — ? . ' Though only eleven hundred miles distant from Sydney, there are few , hero who .have any idea of New Caledonia. By most it is thoright a barren island, of which the French have taken possession merely for tho purpose of establishing, a ? penal settlement ; others believe that it is becoming a naval station, to be of use in case of war ; and it is not so long ago that I heard the opinion expressed that the naval aud military forces of New Caledonia would some day make a descent on these shores. There are others who know that it is of some use to Sydney, inasmuch as tho French Government spends a considerable sum of money in this colony, mid that there ore traders on the island who supply themselves almost solely from this market, whose requirements increase...

DEATH OF DR. OWENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 December 1866

DEATH OF DR. OWENS.

His departure froni amongst those for -whose political and social advancement ho most earnestly, and. honestly labored follows close upon that of a spirit in many respects akin to his own, Charles Jardiue Don. It illustrates strangely and ^ somewhat mournfully the sudden mutations of life in a young and vigorous community that these two mon should have ended their brief careers in isolation from the busy, arena in which the most energetic portions of their livesvwere passed. Those who enn from per sonal experience recall the oarly days preceding tho enfranchisement of tho mining population of the colony from an oppression of officialdom scarcely conceivable1 by persons whoso know ledge of life is confined to the quietude of tho 'old' country' will remomber when the name ...

SADDLERY AND HARNESS, BOOTS AND SHOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 December 1866

SADDLERY AND HARNESS, BOOTS AND SHOES.   The manufacture of these articles forming, as it does, the staple of the leather trade in this colony, some mention of the specimens of workmanship in   their several branches, which are on view at the   Intercolonial Exhibition, is necessary. The firms or business houses, represented offer no indication of the extent to which of late years these essential branches of colonial industry have attained? There is, in fact, a paucity of' competitors, especially in the boot arnd shoe department, but what   there is possesses great excellence, and is deserv- ing of some notice. In the saddlery and harness exhibits, Messrs M'Farlane and Sons make a very handsome show. Their case is placed near the organ gallery on the left of the grand hall, and contains some choice specimens of their workman- ship. They consist of one set of pair horse, and one set of single buggy harness, with chaste and ornamenta...
