SMOKING-OUT OF A MINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 28 March 1867

SMGKING-OTJT OF A MINE. A case of smoldng-out took jjlace on Sunday morning, on the occasion of a meeting under ground of tho drives put in by the Southern Free hold and Great Western Companies. It is scarcely possible at this stage to give exact parti culars as to this fresh instanco of a barbarous method of carrying on mining disputes, and there fore it must at present suffice to give as nearly as possible the opposite versions of tho transaction. It seems that the Southern Freehold men broke into a drive of the Great Western at about eight o'clock .in the morning, immediately after which, according to the Southern Freehold version, they drove the Western men back to their shaft by simply rushing against them. , The Great Western men assert, on the contrary,' that a steam jet was turned on, by which they were steamed out, and immediately after that a fire was lighted and foul air created by the Southern men, so that they were obliged to evacuate tho mine. The Southern Freehold sha...

MYRTLEFORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 28 March 1867

MYRTLEFORD. Myrtleford is the name of a postal village, situated on Happy Valley Creek, about twelve miles from the Buafllo Ranges, which are seen in the distance. The population of the district numbers about 400 inhabitants. A few quartz reefs have been found in the nearer range, which bears the same name as the village. The stone is crushed at the water-mill visible above the foliage in the centre of the en- graving. The whole country thereabouts is moun- tainous, and the geological formation lower silu- rian. Mr Rowe, a farmer, residing near Mr Logan's station at Burrambeep, killed one of the largest snakes last week that has ever been met with in the   district. Mr Rowe tells us that this snake has been seen on his land for some years back, but although repeatedly chased it always managed to escape without giving any clue to its retreat.   The late members of the committee of St. An- drew's Church, Creswick, are taking the necessary steps for the format...
