THE PASTORAL LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 May 1869

THE PASTORAL LETTER. Among the subjeoti dealt with by the late Roman Catholic convocation of prelates that of mixed marriages was one of the princi pal. The pastoral letter adopted con tains the following remarks : — ?' The fre quency of mixed ' marriages is a terrible plot tlpon the character of our Catholic com munity. It is sad to think with what facility Catholic parentB consent to such irreligious connections, with how little caution they ex pose their young peoplo to social intercourse, ' where passionate fanoy and the thought lessness of youth are certain to entail the danger of mischievous alliances. If young peoplo heard from the clergy and their parents as 'often an& as explicitly as they ought, the sense and doctrine of the churoh 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 £h'ey saw thorn in their true light as a danger and a disgrace. Yes, a disgraoe ; not, per...

THE CATHOLIC COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 May 1869

THE CATHOLIC COUNCIL. The oeremony of publicly closing the Pro vincial Connoil of Catholic Bishops of Aus tralia was performed on the 25th nit., in St. Patriok's Cathedral. (The religious cere monials which took place were very much similar to those whioh were wit* nessed at the opening of the Synod. The church was, notwithstanding, crowded in every part, and apparently as much interest manifested in the event as was apparent on the previous Sunday. Soon after the hour appointed for the commence ment of the services a procession of acolytes, clergymen and bishops moved from the residence of Dr. Goold, the Bishop of Mel bourne, and passing throngh the grounds at taohed to the palaoe, entered the cathedral by the main entrance, and traversed the nave of the ohuroh to the chancel, where the olergy and dignitaries oocupied seats prepared for them. ..Th,e Litany of the Saints, which' had been chanted as the procession moved along, baying been concluded, pontifical ' high mass was commenc...

TESTIMONIAL TO THE HON. G. P. VERDON. C.B. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 May 1869

TESTIMONIAL TO THE HON. G. F. VERDON, O.B. It may be remembered that on the occasion of Mr Verdon leaving the colony a public sub scription was set on foot by the inhabitants of Wilnamstown to present him with some slight testimonial of their appreciation. We have had an opportunity of inspecting the result of that effort, which has taken the form of an elegant and chaste epergne. The testimonial, which is of frosted silver, is entirely in the Arabesque style. A column, beautifully ohased and embossed, springs from a base of highly worked and ? polished silver, on whioh are figures in gold of an emu, a kangaroo and a native companion, executed with great spirit and character. From the summit of the column springs a coronet of branches and leaves, whioh forms a support for the centre dish of the epergne ; while, from just below the crown of the ?haft, three branches in a similar style spring and bear the three side vases. The shaft of the epergne is connected with the ends of the sid...

AN AUDACIOUS BANK ROBBERY. .From the Star we select the following report of the most daring bank robbery reported for many a day :— On Saturday nisht. at about ten o'olook, a robbery of a very barefaced character was perpetrated at the Mount Egerten branch of the London Chartered Bank of Australia. A young man, aged about nineteen, named Louis W. Bruun, who was in charge ef the branch bank there, returned to his office at ten o'clock on Saturday night, after having paid a visit to tho township, and was in the act of placing the key in the door, when a man suddenly ap proached from behind and told him not to kiok up a noise, or he would knook him down, at the same time cqckiug a revolver (sup posed to be a Colt's) and placing, the muzzle close to the side of the young man's head. The robber then told Bruun to give every thing that he had up, and, as he was unarmed and unable to offer resistance in the presence of an armed man, he found himself compelled to comply with the demand.

VIADUCT ON THE GREAT SOUTHERN RAILWAY, N.S.W.

NEW BUILDINGS IN MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 May 1869

NEW BUILDINGS IN MELBOURNE. It has been asserted on very eminent authority that the prosperity and culture of a people are ever correotly indicated by the stability and elegance of their public and private buildings. Melbourne may appropriately be cited as an illustration of the aoouraoy 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 commodiousness 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 ereotion, with those ereoted a few years since, will hesitate to acknowledge the truth of this statement. In direoting atten tion to a few of the principal improvements whioh are now being effected in the city as evi dencing an improvement in our taste, and an increase in our commerci...

From a well written obituary in the Guardian we select this passage : — ' He first settled here as a minister in connection with the Presbyterian Church in 1848, when the congregation only numbered about half-a-dozen members. The duties pertaining to the office were scrupulously performed, and many hard ships, and some dangers, were encountered in hia visits through the district to the out sta tions at a time when roads and bridges were almost unknown.

THE GOLD-FIELDS OF VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 22 May 1869

THE GOLD-FIELDS OF VICTORIA. *J This is, without exception, the most im portant and well got-np wotk that has yet issued from the Viotorian Press. It is a compilation of mining data collected and arranged by Mr R. Brough Smyth, the Seoretary for Mines for the colony. It forms a thick imperial 8vo volume, and the typography, illustrations, and binding is equal to any work of a similar class issued from the .English press, and reflects great oredit on Mr John FerreB and all . connected with its publication. The sketches in the work have been en graved by Mr F. Groase, and as specimens of the art are worthy of com parison with most of the old world productions. In the introdaction we learn that as far back as 1858 it was suggested by the hon. Andrew Clarke, E.E., that the interests of the colony would be promoted by the publication of soion tifio papers, on the plan of the ' Memoirs of tbe Geological Survey of Great Britain,' and some steps were taken to give effeot to his proposals.

Mr Hugh Glass is an extensive squatter, long suspected of driving a coaoh and six (to ugo O'Connel's phrase), or an omnibus full of dummies, or thousands of flocks of sheep through every land law the colony has ever passed ; who has been long suspooted of bribery and corruption in regard to the proceedings of oar legislature ; and who, if not a criminal in the highest sense, it is impossible tj define a criminal at all. Mr Glass has at last been detected by the Parliamentary Bribery Committee, oonsignod'to the Melbourne gaol, and discharged with unseemly haste, and by a manner of procedure on the part of the Supreme Court whioh we will not farther characterise than by saying that it renders our Legislature a mere nonentity.
