THE FLOODS ON THE DARLING. The following extract, from a letter from Mr R. Walters, who, in company with Mr Fisher, left Echuca some weeks since for the Warrego country, has been handed to us by Mr Hopwood. It will serve to give our readers some idea of the extent of the floods in the Darling. Mr Walters, writing on the 16th May, from Fort Burke, says :—' Wo arrived on ; the Tyntynallagy, run on the 13th April, 'and': camped in a bend of the river1 about six miles below the home station. , The ; river had not risen much at the' time,, but during the night we were awakened by the water pouring' into our tent, and to '.our surprise we found, ourselves on an island. We-Jshifted-our .'fire several times, the water continually risinpf'and .putting' it out.

PORT DE FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 June 1864

PORT DE FRANCE. Mr Jules Renard, of the Belgian Consulate, who has recently made a tour of the Western Pacific Islands, handed us the following notes from his journal, which will be perused with interest : — Monday, 19th August, caught sight of land off New Caledonia— a long way off— at daylight. Travelling along as wo did, however, with a good breeze and every stitch of canvas we could set, we were within 25 miles of the land at noon. The       coast had a remarkably mountainous appearance, as the accompanying sketch of it will testify. About three o'clock p.m. we caught sight of the white line of surf breaking on the great reef. The   captain got into the cross-trees and scanned the appearance of the coast for a long time. He suc- ceeded in discovering the break in the reef which   forms the entrance to Port de France on this side, and we accordingly made for it. As we neared the passage we could make out a small isl...

THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 June 1864

THE MONTH. The K. M. S. Bombay, with the English news to the 26th of April, arrived here on the 12th instant. The labors of the parliamentary session have been brought , to a close. For the first time almost in the history of parliamentary government in Victoria we have to record the phenomena of business results. The past session has been pre-eminently a business one; and though there, has been no lack of the talk which appertains to free assemblies, we have a very fair result „ as , shown by our statute book. Very, conspicuous is the place occupied by ; the consolidation : of . our-* statute, ? laws — an appreciable - gain on which we may 'with' all fairness congratulate ourselves. France, with '! all' her efforts in this . direction ; England, .with all her grand aspirations-, has not .surpassed .Victoria, in the.results of tho past session^' Tho: greater part i o£ ouv statuto laws, which had already become un wieldy and unintelligible, has been intelligently digested and. consol...

COLONIAL SHIP BUILDING. A steam vessel, fitted for shallow waters, has been built by Mr Oliver on the south bank of the Yarra, and is now so far completed that she will bo launched as soon as the river rises to a sufficient height, which is greatly , dependent on the direction of tho wind.

EXTRAORDINARY SUICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 June 1864

EXTRAORDINARY SUICIDE. An occurrence of a tragic and painful nature was brought to light on Sunday, 12th inst. As Alexander Mann, the night watchman at the Melbourne ter- minus of the Melbourne and Hobson's Bay Railway Company, ' was passing down the line, between six and seven o'clock,he observed the body of a man lying on the rails, at the south-west end of the Yarra bridge. He immediately gave the alarm,   and Constable Delaney, proceeded, to the spot, when he found the body of a man lying quite dead, with the face in a pool of blood. The right side of the head, from tho skull over the ear, was almost entirely severed, and the brains were lying scattered about. Tho body was identified by Mr Burton, of tho Mer- cantile Hotel, as that of Captain Scott, formerly of tho Gem. On being conveyed to the morgue and searched, there was found on the body, besides a small book and several papors, a letter, of which the following is a copy, and which explains his motive for commi...

THE MURDER AT THE ROADS AND RAILWAYS OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 June 1864

THE MURDER AT THE ROADS AND RAILWAYS OFFICE.   Intense excitement was caused in Melbourne on Saturday, the 18th instant, by a rumor that an atro- cious murder had that morning been perpetrated at the office of the department of Roads and Railways. It was found, however, that the rumor was only too true, a contractor named Harrison having shot his partner, named Marsh, through the heart. It appears,   from what has since transpired, that the murderer and his victim had jointly undertaken a Government contract, having been the successful tenderers for forming section 4 of the Jordan road. Although the contract was, according to the Public Works Gazette, granted to ''Messrs. C. Harrison and J. Marsh," it would appear that the work was executod under the   personal superintendence of the former, as he had paid the wages, and given cheques, signed with his own name, on behalf of the firm, and in connection with the job. Whether they had or had not &...

A CHINESE LOTTERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 June 1864

A CHINESE LOTTERY. Mr R. H. Horne, in one of his prose works, has written some line lines on what he calls "The Un-   seen City, where live and die the sons of toil un- heeded by the wealth and refinement around. There is an unseen, city hard by in Melbourne, with some strange features hardly known to or noted by him who hastily paces his way through the throngs of busy Bourke-street on: a Saturday evening. We         allude more particularly now to the Chinese quarter in that part of Bourke street the Little to the rear of the Theatre Royal. Accident brought us on Sa- turday evening into closer connection with one of   the unknown institutions of our celestial fellow- subjects of Australia. The Chinese passion for gambling is well known, but until a few days ago we were not aware that it had taken the form of a regularly organised lottery, within half a minute's walk of Bourke street. We certainly heard m...

A FAITHFUL HUSBAND AND A HARD-HEARTED WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 June 1864

A FAITHFUL HUSBAND AND A HARD HEARTED WIFE. An attempt to commit suicide, under romantic circumstances, was made by a miner named Sistrom, alias Spiers, at Kangaroo Flat, on Tuesday after-   noon, about five o'clook. It appears, from a state- ment made by his wife, that about fifteen years ago the two were living in London, and that Sistrom shipped as a seaman in a vessel bound for Australia. Upon his arrival at Adelaide he deserted the ship, and changed the name of Sistrom for that of Spiers, under which patronymic he has since been known by his colonial friends. About four years afterwards he returned to England with the view of rejoining his wife and returning with her to Adelaide, where he had succeeded, by dint of hard work and steady habits, in amassing a good deal of money. Upon his arrival at home he found that his wife had departed for Australia, and upon comparing dates it appeared that she must have sailed from London at the time he shipped at Adelaide, conse...
