THE MISSING SCHOONER EVA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 May 1867

THE MISSING SOHOONEB EVA. Roolringham Bay and Cardwell are so well known, and tho description and disoussion of characteristic merits and demerits of the settlement tkero have beon so thoroughly exhausted in the glowing pic tures of its founder, G. E. Dalrymple, Esq., and the later ^accounts of many more sober and loss imagin tive visitors, that but little is left on. the general subject for the tourists of the present tune to re mark. Still, in relation to the incidents attending .the late cyclone which visited the ooast, and the public anxiety concerning the fate of the schooner Eva, which left this bay late on the evening pro ceding the storm, perhaps a sketch of the late trip of the steamer Blaok Prince to Rocldngham Bay and back may be interesting to our readers. Immediately after the departure of the Boomerang last week, and as soon as practicable after the loss of the Eva became probable, and principally with the view to ascertain, if possible, something relative to the fute ...

The bridge was 130 feet long, CO- feet between the perpendiculars, and 12 feet broad. It was a very strong and simple structuro, and a creditable specimen of the skill of our volun teer engineers.

THE BARRIER RANGES. The Adelaide journals are even still harping on the theme of the Barrier Ranges. In the Advertiser of the 23rd ult. we find, this reference to the matter : — ' The Barrier Ranges. — We are informed on what appears to be pretty good autho rity that a person well known as having formerly resided in South Australia, has just arrived from the eastern border with the declared intention of .   claiming the reward for the discovery of gold within the limits of the colony. The exact locality is not mentioned, but it is, understood to be in the neigh borhood of the Barrier Ranges, though at a con siderable distance from any place to which former rumors have referred.'

ADVENTURES OF A DIVER IN AUS TRALIAN 'WATERS. About five years, ago a barque, named The Lady Kinnaird, was lost in Torres Straits. She was going through Rain Island ckannel at the time, and having struck upon one of the numerous reefs, went down in nine fathoms of water. Her, cargo of copper, which she was carrying from Melbourne to Cal cutta, was worth making an effort to recover, and for that purpose my services as a diver were engaged by the Victorian Insurance Company. Ac-' cordingly, I left Melbourne for the scene ©f opera tions. The voyage thither was. interesting, as our ship, the Jeanie Oswald, went in side the Great Barrier Reef, being the second merchant ship on record to take tho inside route. To get in between tho reef and the mainland wo rounded Break-Seas-Spit, which is a point of land running about twenty miles out from the coast of Queensland.

THE ABORIGINAL CRICKETERS. A series of sports took place, oh Saturday, 4th inst., on the Melbourne Cricket Ground -(which was given free for the occasion), for the purpose of raising funds to enable the aboriginal cricketers, who have lately been hawked about, the colonies, to re turn to' their home at Lake Wallace. There Were . about 500 people present, but probably there would have beon mere if the weather had proved favorable. It was disagreeable weather for sports of any land, much more so when the so-called sports necessitated the mens' reducing, themselves, so far as costume went, to trunk hose and skull caps. There was some nice, cool, drizzling rain at intervals, which compelled ths ladies to crowd into the pavi lion, and made the course spongy and sloppy. But the contending ' athletes,' as they are now called, didn't seem to mind the weather much, though people who were warmly clad found it by no means pleasant. The programme contained ten events, but only eight came off. T...
