NAPOLEONVILLE, NEW CALEDONIA. SEE PAGE 10. NEW CALEDONIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 December 1866

N A P O L E OJN VILLE, NEW CALEDONIA 4-Se pvgu 10. 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 here- who have any idea of New Caledonia. . By moat it is thought a barren iiland, of which the French have' taken possession merely for the purpose of 'establishing, a penal settlement; others believe that it is becoming a naval Htation; to be of use in case of war ; and it is not so long ago that I heard the opinion expressed that the naval and military forces of New Caledonia would some day make a descent on* these shores.. ? There ore others who know that it: is of some use to Sydney, inasmuch as the French Government spends a considerable sum of money in this colony, and that there are traders on ' the island who supply themselves almost solely front this market, whose raquirements increase ...

DEATH OF DR. OWENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 December 1866

DEATH OF DR. OWENS. We regret to have toannouhco the death of Dr. Johii Downes Owens, a gentleman whose name a few years since ranked amongst the- foremost of the Liberal leadex-s of public opinion in Victoria. His departure from amongst those, for whose political and social ' advancement he most earnestly and honestly labored follows,, close upon that of a spirit in many respects akin to his own, Charles Jardine Don. It illustrates strangely and somowhat 'mournfully the sudden mutations of life in a young and vigorous community that these two men should have ended their brief careers in isolation from the busy arena in which the most energetic portions of their lives were passed. Those' who can from per sonal experien-ce recall tho early days preceding the enfranchisement of the mining population of the colony from an oppression of officialdom scarcely conceivable by persons whose know ledge of life is confined to the quietude of the ' old country' will remember when the name which...

SADDLERY AND HARNESS, BOOTS AND SHOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 December 1866

SADDLERY AND HARNESS, BOOTS AND SHOES. The manufacture of these, articles forming, on 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 neceBsary. 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 tho boot and shoe department, but what there is possesses great excellence, and is deserv ing of some notice. In the saddlery and harness exhibits, Messrs M'Farlarie 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 spocimens of their workman ship. They consist of one set of pair horse, and one set of single buggy harness, with chaste and ornamental mounting. The workmanship is of the most careful descript...
