THE MELBOURNE HUNT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 27 September 1867

THE MELBOURNE HUNT. The earliest paoks of hounds date back as far as 1845, when Mr Tom Pike, of Ballan, hunted a pack at his own expense ; and between 1845 and 1850 Mr Oompton Ferrars hunted the Leigh, near Geelong, with a bitch pock. Beth of these packs had been bred from imported hounds, and no trouble or expense was spared to form them into a good and serviceable pack ef hounds. The Melbourne country had, how ever, been as yet left untouched, and it was not until about 1850 that the present Melbourne Hunt assumed the ' shape of a olub. In that year a meet ing was held at the old Shakespeare Hotel, Collins-street, and in one evening £600 was subscribed to place the olub on a lasting footing. The foremost in the movement were the present master, Mr Geo. J. Watson, Harry Bignell, Sydney James, Knox, ' Tom Moody, Turner, Dunnett, Frank Stephen, the three brothers Payne, and J. Gorton, besides many others, whose names have escaped our memory. Mr Geo. Watson was unanimously chosen the ...

A NOTORIOUS SWINDLER. A notorious swindler who is well known in the colony and in England, was arrested by the detective police on 26th ult., for obtaining money under false pretences. The man, whose name is Edward Bathurst, will be re- membered as a few years since clerk of petty   sessions at Heidelberg, in which capacity he embezzled the Governments moneys, and was sentenced to three years' imprisonment. After his   liberation, he was arrested on another charge,   for which he received a a term of imprisonment after having served which, he made his way   to Adelaide, where he so ingratiated himself with the Governor of the colony as to obtain an appointment as police magistrate. He   was however recognised, and obliged to quit   the country rather hastily. He afterwards   turned up in London, where he carried   on his wild career with success, until   &nbsp...

MENZIES' HOTEL, MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 27 September 1867

MENZIES' HOTEL, MELBOURNE. Mr Menzies, an old and respected landlord, is building a splendid hotel, whioh will be a   great ornament to our metropolis. The site   chosen is at the corner of William and Bourke   streets— a locality sufficiently near the centre of business, the wool sales, the shipping, and   the railways, and yet enjoying, because of the absence of shops and the close neighborhood of the cathedral church, a sort of suburban repose. The building has for frontage 100 ft. in Wil- liam-street and 182 ft. in Bourke-street. The     design, which has' been furnished by Messrs   Reed and Barnes, presents a building three stories high, and of imposing appearance.   Along the facade of the. ground story is an arcade of Romanesque pattern, , the round     arches supported' by iron pillars, marked with a spiral ornament. This faces the cool south- &am...

TIGRE, ABYSSINIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 19 October 1867

TIGRE, ABYSSINIA. Some interest is attaohed to Abyssinia at present in consequence of the lengthened de tention of Consul Cameron, and severalother British subjects. Often as the names of the captives and their gaoler have been mentioned in telegrams and news paper paragraphs, we are 'still in the dark as to the whole business. We /want to know something of the history and character of; this Theodore, who calls himself emperor, and who is said to have been intensely disgusted at the Queen of England for refusing to respond to his offer of marriage. We suspect that there . is a considerable amount of misrepresentation current in regard to the mutter. In the meantime we present a a view of J one of Theodore's strongholds ; the one, probably in which the British prisoners were kept. The physical features surrounding the fortified building present an extraordinary oppear ance, but they are quite oharuc teristic of the country, which may be described generally as consist ing of a vast se...

FARMING IN QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 19 October 1867

FARMING IN QUEENSLAND. ,' [FROM , THE QUEENSLANiJEll.] . Farming in Queensland can yet scarcely bo looked upon otherwise, than as . a speculative occupation. One season there is abundance, tho next, maj'bo, almost a earth. To the new comer, -who does not enter upon tho culti vation of the soil, it is a profound , puzzle why such should ,bo the case. He here neither sees nor feels the great climatic changes which .the least sensitive and observant must , be aware of in. Europe and America. There may bb' a scarcity of rain, but not to the extent of causing* such a. stoppago of vege tation as;do the snows and frosts- of other lands. . Under ; those oircmnstances, the niero looker-on' is very prone to lay a considerable share of the' failure in vegetation, when such does occur, to the cultivator of the 'soil, who ' ought to. use proper precautions; ho ought to work his land deeper and closer. Above all, he ought to irrigate.' This latter desideratum is looked'up'on bytho majority of tho...
