PHASES OF MELBOURNE LIFE. UNDER THE VERANDAH. I. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 July 1867

PHASES OF MELBOURNE LIFE. [FROM THE LEADEIt.] UNDER THE VERANDAH. I. Under tho Verandah of tho Hall of Com-' merco I spend my winter and my summer days. Of courso, I am a shorebroker (some call mo a -jobber), and I xaav at once openly confess that I am quite open to be cither as circum stances permit or opportunity offors. There are iH the business to' which I have betaken rpysolf, owing to the failure of everything else I ever tried; high-souled and most impressive persons, in canary-colored waistcoats, who make — or profess to make — nice distinctions in this matter. However, I acknowledge the restraint of no such scruples, and it is perhaps owingto the heresy of my ideas upon the subject that I am not much troubled with brokerage business. And as my available capital consists only of what I flatter myself was a somewhat skilfully obtained bank overdraft, and a substantially' bound note-book — a sort of cross between the sober seriousness of a grocer's pass-book and tho elegant tr...

SUNBURY INDUSTEIAL SCHOOLS. Tho reports of the condition of the Indus trial Schools, which tho Chief Secretary pro mised ts' lay periodically before Parliament, are either mythical' or of a character which it is considered impolitic to publish.

THE COLIBAN MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 July 1867

THE COLIBAN MURDER. The Castlemaine Circuit was opened on Tuesday, 9th inst., by his Honor Chief Justice Stawell,   when William Henry Terry, otherwise known as Hopkins, Williams, Maguire, McGill and Mitchell,   was arraigned on the charge of murdering     Peter Reddick at the Coliban, in July, 1862. The prisoner pleaded Not Guilty.                 Mr. G. C. Leech defended him, instructed by Mr. Merrifield, who was appointed by the Crown to conduct the defence. Mr. Smythe, who         prosecuted for the Crown, opened the case, and   gave an outline of the evidence as it has already been published. He stated that Professor Halford, since the preliminary examination, had   made an incision in the bone, by which he was enabled to say that it was the skull ...

THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 July 1867

THE MONTH. The May mails from Europe and the East have arrived with unprecedented punctuality. The branch mail steamer arrived off Glenelg at eleven a.m. 9th inst., but the R.M.S. Bombay herself was off Cape Otway at three p.m., arrived at the Heads at nine p.m., and dropped anchor in the Bay at about one a.m. on the 10th inst. The Bombay, Captain Burne, left Galle on the 19th of June, and arrived at King George's Sound at half-past two p.m. on the 4th inst. three days before her time, and she was on the point of leaving when the Rangitira arrived.   Commander Gosse, naval agent; purser, A. Bailey. There is a very notable contrast   between all this and the former management   of the P. and O. Company. The P., N.Z. and A.R.M. Company's steam- ship Rangitoto, with the mails, penodicals, &c. from England and America via Panama, ar- rived in Hobson's Bay, on tho 30th ult., at ten a.m. Now that party spirit has well nigh worn itself out, ho...

THREE CHILDREN LOST. [DAYLESFORD EXPRESS, JULY 4.] [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 July 1867

THREE CHILDREN LOST. [DAYLESFORD EXPRESS, JULY 4.] No event since the murder of Margaret Graham has stirred the heart of the people of Daylesford like the loss of the three children, on Sunday. As we stated in our last, on that   day William and Thomas Graham, sons of Mr William Graham, and respectively aged seven and four years, with another child of five, named Arthur Burman, son of Benjamin Burman, left, their homes in Connell's Gully about ten a.m., to search for wild goats. As the boys did not return to dinner, the father with some neighbors searched all the after-     noon for the truants. It was ascertained that they had gone in the direction of the junction of Stony with Wom-   bat Creek but no further trace of the missing ones could be found. As night set in serious fears for their safety were felt, and during the evening the facts were communi- cated to the police station at Daylesford. Senior sergeant Whelan thereupon de...

[FROM THE DAYLESFORD MERCURY, JULY 8.] [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 July 1867

FROM THE DAYLESFORD MERCURY, JULY 8. On Saturday, a large party headed by the police magistrate searched the country in and around Italian Gully, where it was said the cry of cooeying of children had been heard. They were accompanied by five black trackers, and a most patient and careful search satisfied those engaged in it that the rumor was like all that preceded it, the mere work of imagina-     tion. The same bad success attended all the other parties engaged in searching, and as they one after another arrived in town towards nightfall the feeling of disappointment       was very great, combined with a feeling of   surprise that such an extended search and by       so many should have failed in obtaining the slightest trace of the missing ones. At seven o'clock there was a special prayer meeting in the Wesley Church, which was largely attended, and the prayers for...

THE ALEXANDRA RUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 July 1867

THE ALEXANDRA RUSH. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] Having just returned from a short tour of               inspection over Alexandra and its vicinity, I   now address you a brief description of the new El Dorado, thinking the same may not be unacceptable to some of your readers, espe- cially those who contemplate visiting the reefs there. In the first place, then, I must inform you that the place is rapidly becoming of con- siderable importance. Buildings (such as stores and public houses) are going up in various directions, and the main street is extending daily, in the direction of the rich reefing claims. Where a month or two ago there were only one or two shanties, is now a respectable township; in fact, all the usual signs of prosperity are now to be seen in the district. There is now a police camp, post- office and bank, and a deputy registrar has been appointed, who seems to give ...

AN INCIDENT OF THE FLOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 July 1867

AN INCIDENT OF THE FLOOD. Mr F. B. Sutton, writing from Burrandong, describes one of the saddest incidents of the flood :— "The hut of a shepherd of Mr Blunden, named Baker, who lived near the junction of the Mudgee River, got surrounded before he and his family could move (the water rising six feet in ten minutes), and out of eleven persons all were drowned but three. Those saved are the eldest boy and girl and father. Those drowned are the mother, five boys, a baby (girl), and a married man named Smith, who came to help them about dark, just before the sudden rise of water. At the first rush of the flood, they all got on to the tables, then on to a loft, and then had to cut a hole in the back and get on to the top of the roof. Here they remained until the water reached their mouths, when the four left alive swam to a tree. Smith not being able to swim sank as soon as he left the hut. The poor old father (Baker) gave a most distressing account of the scene — how he held his childre...

A SHOCKING ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 July 1867

A SHOCKING ACCIDENT. A telegram from Bathurst, of the 4th.   ints ,- published in the Herald, reports the occurrence of a shocking accident on the   Maquarie River: — "A shocking accident,   caused by the misbehavior of a drunken scoundrel, occurred on the river last night. It was six o'clock and dark, when the boat built by Cobb and Co. was engaged in conveying the mails and parcels brought by the coach across, the river. There were a number of people waiting to be ferried over from the Kelso side, and, against the wish of the person in charge of the boat, seven or eight of these jumped in, and amongst them a drunken ruffian, who, see- ing a female in the boat, stood on the gunwale, and commenced rocking it from side to side, despite all entreaties. The boat was very deep in the water, the sides not being more than a few inches above its level. When the centre   of the stream was reached, an extra lurch given by the fellow turned ...

EUGENE VON GUERARD [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 July 1867

EUGENE VON GUERARD Was born in Vienna, where his father, who was descended from an old Lorraine family, was court painter. At a very early age, Eugene, evincing a strong predilection for art, went with his father to Italy, where he studied the old   masters in Venice, Milan, Florence and Rome, and made rapid progress in art. In 1832, he proceeded to Naples, where he remained for six years, actively engaged in depicting   the lovely scenery of the Two Sicilies. Returning to Germany, he established himself at Dusseldorf, being attracted there   partly because it was his father's native town, and partly by the high reputation of its Royal Academy of Art. While at Dussel-   dorf he made various excursions into   Belgium, , Holland, and the German Princi-   palities, for artistic purposes. In 1852 he emi- grated to Australia in order to find here an un- explored field of study. During the last twelve years, he ...
