On a recent occasion our artist had an oppor tunity of witnessing the modus operandi of the wholesale duck-shooters, by whom our markets are supplied with game. Being en the border of the Fifteen-mile Swamp, near Mount Hope, he came upon a clump of umbrageous swamp gums, which sheltered the teat of the sportsmen, if so they may be called, though the designation is scarcely appro priate. Close to the edge of the swamp was a small, light, flat-bottomed boat or scow, in the fore part of which was fixed; a largo gun, , working ; on a swivel. /Behind --the , gun lay 1 one of the men ; waiting' a chance 'for a ' shot,whilb a sturdyblack wrappedin an cipposumrng ; propelled the scow, to the proper spot. .

GOLD NEAR WANGARATTA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 April 1867

GOLD NEAE WANGARATTA. 'We glean a few further particulars relative to the discovery of gold in the vicinity of Wangoratta, from two men, Messrs Heary Faithful and John Malonev, who have visited the locality, near Mr Farrell's, Bedi sta tion. The following is the substance of their story : — The new diggings ore about fifty miles from Wangaratta, towards Myhree, on the road to the Broken River. The country in the vicinity is very scrubby; in fact, the creek on which the men are' work ing is called Scrubby Creek. Faithful and Maloney' had some difficulty in penetrating through the scrub on account of its density. On arriving' at the creek, they found throeN Hien engaged in box-sluicing; the depth of the ground being about five feet. The top soil is stripped, and all the gravel is put through the boxes. The creok has almost no' fall, so that a tail-race would bo of little or no benefit. About one hundred yards of the creok lias already been werked by the men, who say they have been in ...

THE VICTORIA REGIA IN THE BOTANICAL GARDENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 April 1867

THE VICTORIA REGIA IN THE BOTANICAL GARDENS. The Victoria Regia plant of South America, has for some years been familiar to English horticultu raHsts, through specimens which have been reared in the greenhouses of wealthy societies and indi viduals, but it is only within the last two months that it has been successfully brought to maturity in this colony. Attempts have been made from time to time to raise plants in our Botanical Cardens, and have almost inexplicably failed until recently. The latest experiment,\of which we now record the suc cess/'was made with some seeds obtained from the Botanic Garden at Amsterdam. These, were placed in,a flower pot, and-Dr. Mueller, 'the curator of the gardens, had- the '??. pleasure of seeing one young plant 'spring- up; and promise a vigorous .growth. The rest all failed. ' The shoot. whidvappeared; was removed into. a: tub of , water,' with 'a few inches.of earth at- the -bottom, and a large .'tank. was. constructed with the greatest possible...

The old baths, however admirable in their way, were after all, mere makeshifts in. many respects, having been added to, altered and modified as the necessi ties of the undertaking increased, and the entire affair might be fairly described as ' a thing of shreds and patches.' The Turkish Baths, from then* com mencement in Melbourne, rapidly grew in pnblic favor, and have now become a necessary institution, of which thousands of persons have felt and know the advantages.
