The repairs which have been recently carried out, both on the out ?side and in the interior of the building; have added much to' its appearance and comfort, while at the same time it has ren dered it more susceptible of ornamentation.

THE SQAUTTER'S TIGEB. Familiar with, the .manners and customs of Botten Bow, it strikes 'the new chum .newly landed hero as strange that gentlemen equestrians are never attended by grooms i when they ride through our streets. What would the landowner think of the person who rode groomless in any region of the 'fashionable west ? He does not kaow how costly would bo that smart article, ; with its white choker and unexceptionable top boots, riding at respectful distance behind, bearing the , umbrella of my lord . or Sir Harry, or plain Mr, his master. To see an equestrian attendant on our pastoral aristocracy, the new chum must pack up his traps for a ride up country. To saTO this trouble, our artist has sketched the 'squatter's tiger,' bo called in these parts in forgetfulness that 'tigers' proper do not . bestride ateeds, but are. perched up behind the ' cabs,' with which fast young gentler . men and ' swells' do their locomotion in western Lon don.

COLLINS S T K E E T— bib page 13. COLLINS STREET. : In recent number's of this journal we have given rarious illustrations of our principal business thorough Fares, which in a striking manner exhibit the wonder fully rapid progress, not merely of the city of Mel bourne, but of the colony of Victoria. This is still further exemplified in our engraving, which represents a portion of Collins street west, which may not inaptly, from its' space and the character of some of its business, details, be termed the Regent street of Melbourne. There is this difference, however, that wherever the great shopping street of fashionable England is devoted to shopping pure— that is, to the retail trade in what may be termed the decorative necessaries of civilised life, extending from the newest patterns and sweetest things that make the better half of creation bewitching, up to the most brilliant and fleeting of valses, polkas, and galops, dispensed by the fashionable music ;.sellers — Collins street...

We have in recent issues given details of the pro gressmade by Mr Angus M'lVTilinn's exploration party in cutting a track into the Alpine regions of Gipps Land. Further information lias since been received as to the progress of the party, from which it appears that they hare nearly completed the cutting of the track from Omoo to Jericho, on the Jordan river. The party left Stratford for the mountains on the 12th of March. As Jxo season was rabidly advancing when the principal port r»f the mountainous country over which the proposed track was to be carried would be covered with snow, it Became necessary to employ a large number of men. The difficulties of the work may be imagined from some of the details. They commenced at the furthest point to which drajB had been brought from Stratford into the mountains — a place on ...

ST.. ' K I L D A — see page 5 ST. KILDA. : Tho marine suburb of St. Hilda is the most fashionable, as it is one of the most pleasant and picturesque spots around Melbourne. It is to this busy and 'hardworking metropolis what Briahton is to London, with the advantage of being only some four miles distant, a space that can be traversed by car or rail with the rapidity with which the man of business does his ride from the west end to the city of mighty London. St. Kilda is, in fact, itself, a town of very respectable size, and it has its mayor, council, population of some eighteen thousand souls, and representative in the Legislative As sembly of Victoria. Stretching from thb banks of. the Yarra, which is here tho boundary of Mel bourne proper, a broad tract of low. level land, only broken by the volcanic rising ground on which Emerald Hill stands, extends to St. Hilda, which here rather abruptly rises and falls in a succession of undula tions, a pleasant feature in a seaside residence...

A WHALE HUNT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 June 1864

A WHALE HUNT. This season the whales are putting into tho bay before the whalers are ready to receive them. Some weeks ago three were observed within the lighthouse reef and yesterday after noon a whale of immense size paid us a visit and in his journey came close enough, if any way sharp-sighted, to inspect tho architecture of the new jetty. Having satisfied his curiosity appa rently in that respect, he swept north till coming to the reefs near which- the buoy is placed, directly opposite the North Bluff, he amused himself for some time with an occasional spurt and roll, the latter probably, to clear his back of the barnacles, the former to show -his satisfaction-; when more than ordinarily successful. ? Whilst : amusing himself at the buoy, two boats, a whaler and ' pick-up' were manned with volunteers .and an exciting chase en sued which lasted the best part of three hoars. The whale first directed his (her) course to the Narra wong coast,' then swept round the bay westward, ' ke...
