THE NATIONAL MUTUAL LIFE INSURANCE ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 17 July 1869

THE NATIONAL MUTUAL LIFE INSURANCE ASSOCIATION. A meeting of the polioy- holders of this ? society was held on 6th inst, for the purpose of considering and adopting the articles of asso ciation. There were about forty gentlemen nresent. bv whom Mr Georse Rolfe was called to the chair. The chairman, on introducing the business of the meeting, said that for some time past it had been observed that everywhere the system of mutual assurance was growing fast into favor, and as there was an excellent opening 'at present for the establishment of a society on that principle in the colony, it was determined to attempt its formation. The provisional directors of the inititution, being. aleo directors of a well-established, fire company, conceived that if would be an advantage to both if an alliance were established between them, since it would reduce the coat of management, and also aid in an accession of members. The two corporations we're to be kept perfectly distinct in the disposal of the...

OVER-PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 17 July 1869

OVER-PRODUCTION. [from thb age, june 29.] . There is a happy medium between over- con- fidence and faintheartedness, whioh it ib very desirable for every one to attain. But since it is difficult to hit the exact mean, it is better o err on the side of hopefulness than of des pair., This is especially true of settlers in a new colony. If men wero to weigh timorously and scrupulously all the possible evils that might spring from any given course of action, colonisation would be impossible. The same might indeed be said of every kind of enter prise. If the bugbear of over-production had been ever present to the manufacturers of England, Manchester would still bavo been a village of spinning-wheels and hand-looms. There is just one branoh of industry which modern political economists assume can never be overdone — that is, commerce. A glut caused by over-importation is hailed by them an a godsend. A glut caused by over-production ia deplored as a- calamity, and a thing to be avoided eve...

AN EARTHQUAKE AT CHRISTCHURCH From the Lytttelton Times of the 7th of June we condense the following account of the earthquake and its consequences up to that date: — A series of shocks from earthquakes have been felt throughout the province since Satur- day morning; causing some damage to property. The first was the most severe and the worst that has been experienced for many years. It   occurred about eight a.m. on Saturday, and slight vibrations were felt several times during the day, a very distinct shock taking place in the evening, and another yesterday afternoon.

HOW PALMER WAS CAPTURED. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 17 July 1869

HOW PALMER WAS CAPTURED.   Ever since it became known (says the Gym- pie Times of June 2) that Palmer, one of the suspected murderers of Mr Patrick Halligan,   near Rockhampton, was lurking in the neigh- borhood of Gympie, the greatest interest has been taken in the movements of the police sta- tioned here. The following information is new :— "It appears that Palmer was at Gympie last year, and one of the two men who stuck up the Gympie coach, upon which occasion a gallant resistance was offered by Mr Selwyn King, a bank clerk in Gympie. Mr King shot Palmer's mate, a man named Bond. He was carried off the scene   of action by Palmer. The place be-   came too hot for Palmer after this, and he came to Rockhampton in December or January last. Some time after he met Archi- bald, Charles Taylor (who had been Archi- bald's groom), and a man known as Jack Wil- liams — Old Jack. They met in a private house in Rockhampton, and concocted a p...

PROGRESS IN GEELONG. The Albion Woollen Factory at South Gee- long, built by Messrs Gray, Robinson and Co., on the site of their old flour mills, is now almost ready for the machinery. The ma-   chinery was shipped on the 10th April, from London, by the Aurora, and in charge of Mr Horsfield, jun., who so satisfactorily brought out and erected, in conjunction with Mr Ward, that of the Victorian Woollen Factory. This latter company will hold their seventh half- yearly meeting on the 14th, inst., when a divi- dend of ten per cent. will be recommended, as also an extension of the works.

The stock on hands and in process of manufacture is valued at £3749 as against that remaining from last half year, £3456. In the six months they have manu- factured woo...

CAVES ON THE MOSQUITO PLAINS, SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 17 July 1869

CAVES ON THE MOS- QUITO PLAINS, SOUTH AUSTRALIA. About ten miles from the township of Narracoote, in South Australia, some very singular caves are to be found, well worth a visit   by each as have time to make a detour in travelling through the border land between South Australia and Victoria, These caves are evidently of voloanic origin and of ancient date. They constitute a series of chambers, leading the one into the other, differing somewhat in size, and some of them have never been thoroughly explored. The first chamber is toler- ably easy of access, through a small opening in the ground, which is not visible until you are close to it. You descend by a slope formed of the debris which has fallen from the mouth. At the bottom of the slope youu find yourself in a large oval-shaped chamber about 140 feet long, 75 wide, 40 high, and having a toler- ably level floor. At the end of this chamber are two large stalactites which serve as pillars to support the roof. A passa...

ATTEMPT AT PRISON-BREAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 August 1869

ATTEMPT AT PRISON-BREAKING. [FROM THE BATHUBST FBEE PRESS.] Considerable excitement was caused in Ba thurst, on 17th July, by the report that the convict Pearson had very nearly made his escape. It appears that on Friday afternoon an attempt was made to make a breach in the gaol wall under the following circumstances : — One of tho prisoners had surreptitiously obtained a large spike nail — one of the kind used to fasten a mophead to the handle ; he bad also got pos session of the handle of a small iron scoop used for earth purposes in the closet, and with those, he was prepared to go to the work of making 'a hole in thie wall.' In order to attraot the attention of the warden then on duty, and to ward off suspicion from the 'working hand,' Pearson procured a nook,' from whioh he read aloud, while a number of the prisonets were colleotod around him apparently listening very attentively. While this was going on, a prisoner under sentence, for committal for horse- stealing, was busily ...

SUGAR-GROWING PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 August 1869

In New South Wales, the veteran Soott complains that he has been endeavoring for a quarter of a oentury to hammer into the heads of farmers the profitable nature of sugar-growing from the cane, and that has only just succeeded in doing it. It is some half-dozen years or more since we first distributed gratis, for the hon. Capt. Cole, the seed of the imperial sugar-beet that he had taken the trouble to import from France, and yet nothing has come of our joint effort...

AUSTRALIAN DIAMOND MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 August 1869

AUSTRALIAN DIA.M0ND MINES. If Siudbad's ' valley of diamonds ' is not to be literally rivalled by the bank? pf tho Cadge gong river, the Australian Diamond Mines Company has, at all events, been fairly floated, a meetincr haviner been held 22nd July, for the elootion of direotors, Sec. Tho report presented stated that 115 diamonds had been sent to England by tho last mailj to Mr Verdon, to be out and polished ; and since then forty-four diamonds bad been found. The shareholders in this company are represented as having a very good prospect, as amongst the stone^ found are said to be several of very good size, and all of them of first rate quality. Amongst others is a great natural curiosity, viz., a diamond of a blaok color, with some foreign substance attached. This has been pronounced by skilled lapidaries to be an altogether unique circumstance in the diamonds, since snob, gems are. usually fonnd quite distinct from other substances. The Sydney Herald is very natarally jubilant o...

During the year the committee had, by the sale of the improvements upon the Yelta Station, paid all that they owed, and a Bum pf money remained on hand. But this, the report stated, was hardly a cause for congratulation, Bince, in order to effeot their present state of solvency, the committee had applied to the payment of the society's debt what should have been regarded as capital.'

THE BANK ROBBERY AT EGERTON. The protraoted trial of Brnun, aconsed of robbing the Egerton Bank, in which he was clerk, has terminated in an acquittal.
