ENTRANCE TO THE BULLER, NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 August 1869

ENTRANCE TO THE BULLER.NEW ZEALAND. The West Coast of New Zealand is lashed by storms, and her rivers are famed for the danger of their bars. In our illustra tion of the Boiler, one of the rivers on the . West Coast, the artist has succeeded in conveying an idea ol the swell and sun, whioh sweeping in from the ooeon, and meeting the rapid rush of water whioh comes down from the snow-clod heights, thus creates, as a matter of course, the river bar, with all its attendant difficulties and formidable dangers. The coast is bleak, and the soenery is of an Alpine charaoter, presenting a succession of ranges, _ swelling one above another, and risinc attvrarSm tn thn hold nsaka of {Mount Kaikoura. Gold was found at the Boiler about five years ago, and since the first rush, a large population has accumulated in the locality. About 10,000 people occupy the township of Westport and the diggings scat tered about. Some of the diggers' tents, pitched on the lower mountain ranges, are vieiblo from...

THE RIVER AVON, GIPPS LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 August 1869

THE RIVER AVON, GIPPS LAND. The Avon is one of the many fine rivers in Gipps Land. It is not e.qual to the Snowy River in length or volume of water ; bat it has attractions of its own, and a corresponding importance. Rising in Mount Wellington, and flowing fifty miles in a south-easterly direction, it joins Lake Wellington. Its average depth is about twenty feet, and its width about two hun dred and twenty yards. The township of Stratford is situated on. the Avon, and . not far from Stratford, on the east bank of the river, is theremarkable cliff represented in our engraving. The oliff, whioh is formed of red clay, presents the appearanoe of an overhanging preoipice, corrugated by the trickling of the rain into number less columns ; the water below receives a red tinge from the shadow oast by the red olift above. To these features of the scene, add the presence of gum trees, whose foliage is thick and glossy, along the river's bank, and you have a picture which will charm any one wh...

BLACK CAMP, LAKE TYERS MISSION STATION, GIPPS LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 August 1869

BLACK CAMP, LAKE TYERS MISSION STATION, GD?PS LAND. It has long been a general opinion that the aboriginals of Australia are a doomed race. So rapid indeed, and so extensive has been their decrease and decay since the white man set his foot on their land, that there was at one time some show of reason for the opinion, and accordingly the matter appeared to be settled beyond doubt or possibility of question. It turns out, however, that we have been too hasty in arriving at our conclusion. - We have looked at the matter superficially, and we have therefore judged wrongly. While the great majority of the white population were settling the question in one way, a small minority were settling it in quite another. Faots are now producible with regard to the aboriginals whioh show the possibility not only of a restoration in point of numbers, but also of an elevation in the soale of civilisa tion. To use a well-known phrase, ' There is life in the old dog yet.' To any one who visits the sta...

THE REV. MR. CLARK PREACHING IN THE THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 August 1869

THE REV. MR. OLARK PREACHING IN THE THEATRE ROYAL. The Rev. Charles Clark, pastor of the Albert-street Baptist Church, has been increasingly popular as a preacher from the first day he appeared in the pulpit un til now. when he is attracting to the Theatre Royal, where he preaches every Sunday evening, audiences whioh crowd the place from the floor to the roof. All classes flock to hear him, and many are seen there who are not given to sermon hearing anywhere else. To convey the best idea of Mr Clark's power and popularity as a preaober, we may Bay that he is recognised as the Spurgeon of Melbourne. Our first page engraving represents the scene at the Theatre Royal when he preaches. Mr Clark was born in London, 19th April, 1838, and went to the Baptist College, Nottingham, when he was twenty years of age. He has had some changes in the course of his ministerial career, having, before his arrival here, been pastor successively of North Parade Church, Halifax; of Maze Pond, London ; a...

WANGARIE FALLS, NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 August 1869

WANGARIE FALLS, NEW ZEALAND. There is a considerable amount of the pic turesque to be found in New Zealand — as we bave often observed in oonneotioa with sketches of soenory both in the North and Middle Island. In our issue for Maroh'wo had a view of the Wangarie Biver, with the falls in the distance. In this iaane we preient a oloae view of the water-fall itself. The scene will be recognised at once as presenting a fine combination of rook, water and wood. The 90 feet descent of water without a break into the basin below is net in a frame werk of characteristic New Zealand foliage. You may see the spiky cabbage-tree, the rope-like supple- jaok and the thick under growth of fern. A solemn stillness reigns around, which ig rarely broken.

THE FINE /RTR FXHIBITION IN BALLABAT. ' The opening of the Ballarat Fine Arts Ex hibition in connection with the Mechanics' In stitute took place en 21it July. The day was all that could be desired, and the township from an early hour exhibited symptoms of that ex citement which, as a rule, the Anglo-Saxon race display when any event is about occurring in which royalty or ihe representative of royalty is conoerned.

FATAL ACCIDENT AT KOROIT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 August 1869

FATAL ACCIDENT AT KOROIT. Mr Brodie, a chemist, in Koroit, was killed a few days ago by a fall from his horse, and there seems reason to suppose that he was in toxicated at the time, although the local papers, in reporting the occurrence, do not actually say so. There can be no doubt, however, as to the state of some of the witnesses examined at the inquest. Thomas O'Mara deposed that on Friday, 16th July, as he was coming home from Belfast, the deceased passed him at a smart cantor. Witness soon after found de ceased's horse grazing on the road. Went to a house. Told them "I thought Mr Brodie had fallen off his horse ; came home ; had get a few nobblers and don't recollect much about   it. W. Ryan, deposed that he assisted to put deceased on his dray, and took him as far as Kelly's Hotel. There found a man going to Koroit with a dray, and got him to take Mr Brodie on with him. Thought deceased was drunk and asleep. James Kelly deposed that he took deceased on his dray ...

AROUND THE MIDDLE ISLAND. THE BLUFF TO INVERCARGILL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 August 1869

AROUND THE MIDDLE ISLAND. THE BLUFF, TO INVERbAR&iLi/.' I am not going to write a guide book.

I wiBh to be recognised merely as a Nobody, and the remarks which follow about New Zealand must be taken purely for what they are worth, as coining from one who travelled through the more favored island of the New Zealand group, partly on business and partly on pleasure. Those who know New Zealand will know that I am innocent of Maori knowledge, except on hearsay evidence ; those who don't know it, and I fear that, in this hemisphere as well ; as the other, there are many thousands such, .may be told that except ' that their pockets feel the strain of a lavish expenditure worwards, the Middle Island people know as much about the Great New Zealand War as we in Viotoria do ; and after a six months' resi dence there, I can say honestly, care almost as little.

THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND IN BACCHUS MARSH. An address, accompanied by a purse of so vereigns, was presented, recently, to the -Rev. W. H. Cooper, by a large number of his late congregation in Bacohus Marsh. Mr J. E. Crook presided, and there were about fifty penonB present in the Bacchus Marsh Me chanics' Institute, where the presentation took place. In acknowledging the testimonial, the Rev. Mr Cooper made the following explana tion : — ' Bacchus Marsh had been very much agitated during the past twelve monthB with various things ; indeed, there had been quite an epidemic of quarrels. He did not know whether it was always so, but he trusted the place was 'suffering a recovery,' and would nettle down into a peaceful township. He was not going to say anything personal, but he must speak about himself. He would give no account of his doctrine here. As a priest pf the Church pf England he could only dp that before a pro perly constituted court. He could not tell them the number of services...
