The Earthquake at Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 14 July 1877

The Earthquake at Melbourne. SOME alarm and excitement was caused in Melbourne and the adjoining suburbs at an early hour on Monday morning by the shock of an earthquake of considerable violence, followed by two others of less intensity, which were felt in several localities. On inquiring at the Observatory, we learnt from Mr. Ellery, the Government Astronomer, that at twenty-five minutes past 3 a.m. a very decided shock occurred, sufficient to rattle windows and crockery. The vibration lasted about 10 seconds, and was succeedod by a noise like distant thunder, but no   direction of the wave could be observed, the disturbance appearing to act vertically. At 3.33½ a.m. a second but much gentler shock   was felt, and again at 4.8 a.m. a similar phenomenon occurred. Some reports received at the observatory stated that the direction of the wave appeared to be from north to south. On both sides of the Yarra, at Warrandyte, the shock was very plainly felt, the ho...

The Backhanded way of the Japanese. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 21 July 1877

The Backhanded way of the: Japanese. Ono of '¿ho'mos't peculiar habits of tho, Japanese, and ono which wo have ' never yot-'íéon commented on, is the way in which they do : s'o many things iu what would bo considered by, Europeans as a "backward fashion," to, illustrate which we' will cite a few, of, the most striking examples.'' Their saws are cut with the teeth pointing to the handle, so that in sawing the cutting is dono whan it is drawn to the person using it, which is the reverse of our way i in pluniug too, tho plane is drawn towards you, and, ; not, as with our carpenters, pushed from. Their books commence at the .back ; tho edge that wc .bind is cut, while the edge that wo cut they fold ; they commence a pago in the right hand upper corner, and write down, not across. When they build a houBe, the first finished part is tho roof, the last is tho collar if they make ono ni all. -But tho strangest and most compli cated roversing of'our customs is their system of clocks.
