SUFFOCATED BY GAS. An extraordinary case oi death from tuo in halation of gas was the subject of an inquiry held by Mr Candler on 24th July, at the Golden Fleece Hotel, Russell-street. From the evi dence given it appears that a miner named Elliott Brown came to Melbourne a few days ago, and Haa been staying at me u-oiden Fleece Hotel. On Friday evening, about ten o'clock, he went home, and as he was rather under the inflaonoe of liquor, Mr Hanson, the landlord, advised him to go to bed, and nocom panied him and a friend who was with him up to his room.

VELOCIPEDE BAOE ON THE MEL ! . BOURNE CRICKET GROUND. Melbourne is getting on wheels as fast as possible. The golden city of the south is determined, with its. usual spirit of goa headism, not to be far behind Paris, New York, and other great centres of. civilization nnfl fashion. History is making itself here as well as elsewhere. Accordingly we have now to re cord the history of velooipeding from its earliest dawn amongst us to the present stage of de velopment. First of all whispers were heard that some one had boon seen during the 'gloamin,' propelling himself on a queer looking; maobine, and zigzagging .along, the road in a fashion rather dangerous to passers by. Meohonics got hold of models, and set to work. Some even boldly attempted improve ments; and week after week someitrioyole or Hioyole was. heard of or actually seen, whioh was pronounced to be decidedly better than anything that bad been decidedly better than fore.

THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 7 August 1869

THE MONTH. The Land Bill is still in committee. The clauseB relating to settlement and auotion have passod, and . so at last have the squatting clauses. Notwithstanding, the ta.pt that the oonntry uj a jvhole is satisfied with the measure, the opposition to it in the Assembly has been faotious in the extreme, and hardly intelligible, on the supposition that members meet for the purpose of carrying oat the wishes of the country. Can it be that under a sys tem of triennial Parliaments, such as we have here, the intermediate Parliamentary year is unfavorable /or the despatch of business ? Daring the first year members are freah from their constituents, and still under the influence of their pledges. Daring the third year they have the fear of an eleotion before their eyes, and in prospect of the ques tions which may then be pot to them, make a show onoe more of good behavior. In the in termediate year, however, such as have got into 'the Assembly merely because they have taken 'up the ...
