THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND ABORIGINAL MISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 14 August 1869

THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND ABORIGINAL MISSION. Tbe annual meeting in connection witb|the Church of England Mission to the Aborigines took place ^ on the 23rd July, at the Mechanics' Institute. The Bishop took the chair, and there was an atten dance as auditors of same twenty persons, three-fourths of whom were ladies. Prayer having been offered by the Rev. S. L. Chase, the Bishop briefly explained the ob jeots of the Mission, after whioh the hon. secretary (MrR. H. Budd) read the annual report, which was of a discouraging character, and showed that funds were urgently needed. During the year the com mittee had, by the sale of the im provements upon the Yelta Station, paid all that they owed, and a sum of money remained on hand. But this, the report stated, was hardly a oanse for congratulation, since, in order to effect their present state of solyenoy, the committee had applied to the payment of the society's debt what should have been regarded as capital.

THE RIVER AVON, GIPPS LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 14 August 1869

THE RIVER AVON, GIPPS LAND. The Avon is one of the many fine rivers in Gipps Land. It is not equal 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 the remarkable cliff represented in our engraving. The cliff, which is formed of red clay, presents the appearance of an overhanging precipice, corrugated by the trickling of the rain into number less columns ; the water below receives a red tinge from the shadow cast by the red clift above. To these features of the scene, add the presence of gum trees, whose foliage is thick and glossy, along the river's banks and yon have a picture which will charm any one who h...

ENTRANCE TO THE BULLER, NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 14 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 oar illustra tion of the Buller, one of the rivers on the West Coast, the artist has succeeded in conveying an idea of the swell and surf, which sweeping in from the ocean, and meeting the rapid rash of water which comes down from the snow-clad 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 scenery is of an Alpine charaoter, presenting a succession of ranges, swelling one above another, and rising anwards to the bold neaks of Mount Kaikoora. Gold was found at the Bailer about five years ago, and sinoe the firstrosh, 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 visible from the d...

BLACK CAMP, LAKE TYERS MISSION STATION, GIPPS LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 14 August 1869

BLACK CAMP, LAKE TYERS MISSION STATION, GIPPS 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 wbb 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' tump' 'out, however, that we have been too hasty in arriving at our conclusion. We have looked at the matter superfioially, 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. Facts are now prodaoible with regard to the aboriginals which 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...

WANGARTE FALLS NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 14 August 1869

WANGARIE FALLS. NEW ZEALAND ? There is a considerable amount of the pic turesque to be found in New Zealand — as we have often observed in connection with sketohes of scenery both in the North and Middle Island. In our issue for March we had a view of the Wansgarie River, with the falls in the distance. In this issue we present a dose view of the water-fall itself. The scene will be recognised at once as presenting a fino combination of rook, water and wood. The 90 feet descent of water without a break into the basin below is set in a frame work of characteristic New Zealand foliage. You may see the spiky cabbage-tree, the rope-like supple-jack and the thiok under growth of fern. A solemn stillness reign's around, whioh is rarely broken. Our' en- graving is from photograph by MrBartlett, of Auckland. FALLS ON THE WANGARIE, PItOVINOE OF AUCKLAND, N.Z.— Fitow a PHOioanAPH ux Mb Babxlett.

It appeabb that a successful experiment has been made at Eohnca, with B. G. Lewen's ap paratus for raising sunken vessels. The Riverine Herald says :— ' We had an opportunity, in company with two or three gentlemen, of wit nessing an experiment on a boat sank In the Murray, with his apparatus. The principle is simple in the extreme, and the means employed are remarkably inexpensive. Mr Lewen informs ub that the coat of the appliances for raising' a veisel of 250 tons would not exceed £1000, and are so durable as to be serviceable for many years. The boat experimented on was filled with a sufficient quantity of sand to sink her, and after she had gone to the bottom a bag con taining half a hundredweight was placed in her. The operation of floating her to th^e sur face, after the apparatus had been fixed, which it did not take long in doing, occupied abont ten minutes. Those present expected, from what they had been told by Mr Lewen, to find tip trial attended with success, but they.c...

The shareholders in this company are represented as having a very good prospeot, as amongst the stones found are said to be several of very good size, and all of them of first rate quality. Amongst others is a great natural onrioBity, viz., a diamond of a blaok color, with some foreign substance attached. This has been pronounced by skilled lapidaries to bo an altogether unique oiroumBtanco in the diamonds, since suoh gems are usually found quite distinct from other substances.
