NATIVE CAMP NEAR WELLINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 15 May 1869

NATIVE CAMP NEAR WELLINGTON. The accompanying sketoh represents the resi dence of the chief of the natives who are A NATIVE CAMP NEAR LAKE WELLINGTO N,—*hom a vhotoqwv bv o. wawur. A NATIVE CAMP NEAR LAKE WELLINGTO N,—*hom a vhotoqwv bv o. wawur. under the superintendence of the Rev. Mr Hagenauer, at Lahe Wellington Station. The old chief, who ia known under the name of King Jamie, and his wife under that of Queen Lillie, asoort their native dignity in refusing to live in' any of the huts provided for natives at the station. They prefer a mia-mia such as they have been accustomed to from early life. The mia-mia, or native hut, is chiefly constructed of gum-tree bark, and where this material is not procurable, tea-tree and other sorts of scrub are made to serve the purpose, the whole being covered with old blankets. Such a mia-mia aa that occupied by King Jamie is in no respect superior to those of other natives. Although still adhering to old habits in regard to residence, King Jami...

THE LATE CAPTAIN MATHEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 15 May 1869

THE LATE CAPTAIN MATHEWS. The news of the death of Captain B. R. Mathews, agent for Lloyd's. in Melbourne will be reoeived with regret by the whole mercan tile community. It took place on the 23rd April, at nine a.m., at his residence in Regent-street, Fitzroy. The career of Captain Mathews has been a somewhat eventful one, and he has held a variety of responsible em ployments in his calling whioh attest to his ability. He became a sailor at a very early age, and speedily rose to the top of his pro fession. While yet a young man he obtained his promotion to the command of a vessel; his. first experiences being as captain of a clipper schooner in the service of Sort Pedro -during the siege of Oporto, where he saw active service. 'Afterwards he obtained the command of the City of Pembroke steamer, and, while aoting in this capacity, he saved the lives of 40O souls, by towing two vessels over the bar at Oporto. He next took command of the steamer Benledi, trading between Bristol and Sw...

The Western Australian papers report that a party consisting of six men and fifteen horses was to start about the middle of the present month to search for the remains of Dr. Leiohhardt. This expedition has been under taken in consoquonoo of the report brought by Sir Monger that the natives had spoken of a massaore of three whites at a ' plftpo some fifteen days' eastward of the farthest point reaohed by that explorer last year — the date of Buoh maesaoro corresponding nearly with' the date at which DrXoiohhardt would, under ordi nary circumstances, have penetrated nearly to the Western Coast. The Ballarat Corner men are, generally speaking, set down as a very sharp lot, and they fully deserve the description. ' Some times, however,' observes a Geelong con temporary, 'Jthoy are too sharp, and an instance of this kind occurred on Tuesday, when our old fellow-townsman, Mr L.

NEW BUILDINGS IN MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 15 May 1869

NEW BUILDINGS IN MELBOURNE. . . It has been asserted on very eminent authority that tho prosperity and culture of a people are ever correctly indicated by the stability and elegance of their public and private buildings; Melbourne may appropriately be cited as ati illustration of the accuracy of this assertion, for with its increasing prosperity there has been a steady and constant improvement in the style of its street architecture, not only as regards the comrnodionenesa and stability of the buildings themselves, but also in 'the ap priateness and purity of the architectural ornamentation with whioh the exteriors are embellished. No person who will compare the buildings lately finished or now in course of erection, with those ereoted a few years since, will hesitate to acknowledge the truth of this statement. In directing atten tion to a feiv of the prinoipal improvements whioh are now being effected in the city as evi dencing an improvement fn our taste, and an increase in our .c...

THE PASTOBAL LETTER. Among the subject* dealt with by the late Roman Catholic convocation of prelates that of mixed marriages was one of the princi pal. The pastoral lotter adopted con tains the following remarks :^-'The fre quency of. mixed marriages is .a .terrible blot upon the charaoter bf our Catholic com munity. It is sad to think with what faoility Catholic p'orenjs oonsent to suoh irreligious connections, with how little caution they ex pose their young people to sooial intercourse, where __ passionate fancy and the thought lessness of youth are certain to entail the danger of mischievous alliances. If young people heard from the clergy and their parents aa often and as explicitly as they ought, the sense and doctrine of the church concerning such marriages, they would be a far rarer calamity than they are. The generosity itself of the young would revolt from such unions if they saw them in their true light as a danger and a disgrace. Yes, a disgrace ; not, perhaps, always i...
