THE BALCLUTHA IN DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 September 1869

THE BALCLUTHA IN DANGER. . Few accidents of the kind have latterly excited so much interest as the perilous voyage of the Adelaide br'anoh mail steamer Balolutha, and -her escape -through 'the coolness and courage of her officers and the praiseworthy exertions of the crew. This account of the mishap we select from the Advertiser : — ''On Monday, at 10p.m., the mails were received on board,' the Governor of 'Western Australia, with - Mrs ! Weld, ; and the .

THE BIG "DIAMOND." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 September 1869

THE BIG 'DIAMOND,' Great excitement has been produced hroughout the country by the announcement at the beginning of the' month that a diamond had been found at Armidale, in New. South Wales, larger than the famous Kph-i-nopr; Day by day some news or other was telegraphed about it, but nothing certain. The first ex oitement got transformed into mystery, and the mystery ended in the diisooyery;' of; a hoax. From the Sydney, JBe,rald of the 12th of August we seleot the, following :— ''' Of whatever character or value the stone re ceived; per Northern escort, and now lying at the Sydney Mint, may prove, it seems, at l^ast to possess^ one oharaoteriatio ot the ' great diamond family, that of, inyolving.its.' finder or owner in difficulties.

NEWLY EXPLORED VICTORIAN TERRITORY. The following report, was laid on the table   of the Assembly on 17th August by the hon. Mr Grant:— "Melbourne Observatory, 17th August , 1869. — Sir,— I have the honor to inform you that Mr William Turton, assistant geodetic sur veyor, who is now engaged extending the triangulation between the entrance of the Snowy River, and Cape Howe, mentions in his last report, dated 2nd August, that he is now camped on the Wingan Inlet about forty miles east of Cape Howe; that about three and a   half miles east of Cape Everard there are two rivers which unite into one about half a mile   inland, one river coming from the N.E., and the other from north. These rivers are un- named. He reports hav- ing nearly completed the erection of a station on Ram Head, and of making rapid progress towards Cape Howe. He also mentions the existence of a quartz reef, rich in gold- bearing pyrites, on the south side of Mount Cann. The re...

OPENING OF THE LAUNCESTON AND DELORAINE RAILWAY—BY OUR SPECIAL ARTIST.—SEE PAGE 176. OPENING OF THE LAUNCESTON RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 September 1869

OPENING OF THE LAUNCESTON ANDDELOKAINE RAILWA T— is oub special abtist.— see page 176. OPENING OF THE LATJNCESTON BAIL WAY. [by our own hepohteb.] At half-past ten a.m. on Tuesday, 17th August, I left the Queen's Wharf, on board the Tasmania, for Launceston. Next morn ing we had a splendid view of. Tasmania, which many- on board saw for the first time, myself inoluded. From about thirty miles off, the nearest land was ef coarse dark and in distinot, but above rose a grand and imposing range of mountains covered with snow, and . glittering1 in the morning sunbeams. As we approaohed nearer, the land resolved into easy undulations, evidently rich and fertile. We soon perceived the entrance to the Tamar, which leads up to Launceston ;, but with the exception of the. little knoll upon which the lighthouse ia built on the east side, it is not interesting, the. land being low and poor. The first appearance of a dwelling is at George Town,. some short distance inside the Heads. The Tasmania...

Mr M'dULtOCH rbse.and moved that the amount of £50,000 set apart by the Constitu tion .- Aot for. religious purposes be re duced by £3.0,000 every year on and after 1870: so that State-aid tb religion should be finally abolished in 1874. This question had been, raised oh various occasions at general elections; and a very general opinion expressed that the aid should be abolished at as early a date, as possible. In the year 1866 the question was very prominently brought forward, and the result was; the introduction of a bill into that House in. 1857 proposing to abolish State-aid almost immediately. Jt passed that House, but wasrejebted in another place. In 1869, again, after the people had had another opportunity of eipressibgan opinion on the subject, a bill was introduced by himself, and wa...

THE MONTH.     The Land Bill has at last got through the As- sembly, and that too by a majority of thirty seven votes to fourteen. It passed the ordeal of committee not only with out serious mutilation, . bat considerably im- proved. The new clauses introduced for the pur- pose of ensuring publicity   in all transaotionB at the ?? Land Office afford the belt possible guarantee for   the speedy detection of   mistakes! the protection of the rights of applicants, the punishment of dum- mies and trioksters, and the fair administration of the Aot in its spirit and intent. Oat of the whole amount of land in Vic- toria there remain seven- teen million acres available for selection. These it is proposed to throw open under the new bill. Should the bill, then, get the sanction of the Council and become law, we trust the announcement thatwe have plenty of land, of fair quality, and to be had on easy terms, will prove attractive...

"FIRST CHURCH," DUNEDIN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 11 September 1869

'FIRST CHURCH,' DUNEDIN. Amongst our engrav ings this month is an illustration ef a Presby terian Ohuroh, now in prooeBB of erection at Dunedin, the capital of Otago. It is called the new ' First Church, ' and there is reason for the peculiar designation. It ooonpiea a prominent site in the centre of the city, within a large re serve set aside for ohuroh purposes at the time the province of Otago was first . colonised. The foundation stone was laid by Dr. Barns, the father of the Presbyterian Church of Otago, and ?who accompanied the first colonists to their new home in this distant JBle. The venerable pio neer still survives, al though for the last eighteen months incapa citated for public labor. The responsibilities of the pastorate have iox some time past mainly devolved upon his ' col league and successor, the Rev. George Sutherland, who occupied the manse or parsonage seen on the right of the church. The length of the Building now erecting is, over all, one hundred And seventy ...

BARROSSA DIGGINGS, SOUTH A U S T R A L I A.— See faqs 178. BARROSSA DIGGINGS, SOUTH AUS TRALIA. We present a view of the recently opened diggings in South Australia. They are situa ted within thirty, miles of Adelaide, and the north line of railway running within seven miles of the workings renders them of all the diggings in the country the most favorable for facility of access and of transport. Although not muoh gold has as yet rewarded the diggers, still there seems to . be every likelihood of a highly remunerative field, more particularly in the direotion of crashing, for the chief pecu liarity of the place ib its gold-bearing cement, a composition of hard rocky iron-Btono and quartz, which is found at varying depths from the surface, and whioh is in itself from a few inches to a couple of feet in thickness. The yield of gold from this remarkable cement has been from a couple of ounces to thirty to the ton. There is reason for believing that it simply wants crushing machinery to...
