REV. J. OSWALD DYKES, M.A. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 26 November 1867

BEV. J. OSWALD DYKES, M.A. This gentleman has been for some time con nected with the Presbyterian Church of Vic toria, .but has never formally joined it. As stated in a recent Presbyterian publication, 'he has rather taken the position of a deputy from the Free Church of Scotland, and it is in that capacity he has wished himsell to be known in Australia.' Mr Dykes, we learn, is a native of Dumfriesshire, graduated at the University of Edinburgh, and almost immediately on his being licensed to preach, was chosen co-pastor with Dr. Candlish, -well known as one of the leaders of the Free Ohuroh. To say that Mr Dykes was able to occupy the pulpit of Free St. George's along with. Dr. Candlish is at once to stamp him as no ordinary man. His health breaking down, he was recommended by his medical advisers to try the effect of a voyage to Australia. He arrived here in 18G5, and after resting for a while and feeling him self somewhat recruited, he took to work again, and has continued at it ...

THOMPSON'S FERRY, AT SWANPORT ON THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 26 November 1867

THOMPSON'S FERRY, AT SWANPORT ON THE MURRAY. ' Swanport is a name lately given to a crossing on the Murray river, about eighteen miles above Wellington^ in the colony of South Aus tralia. It is a place where the: Murray steamers call with supplies for the neighboring Bottlers, or take-in produce for shipment. The district-is almost entirely pastoral,: and the population of the neighbourhood numbers about 160 persons. The crossing used to be called Thompson's Ferry, owing to a gentleman of that name having for a long* time ocoupied. the country on both sides of the river as a run, and having been the first to;' crpsj cattle and sheep at this particular spot. The ferry now belongs to Government. The punt or ferry boat .is enclosed by high rails, so that there needbe no fear of losing stock overboard. In the middle of the river is a small rock, danger ous for steamers. To warn them of the danger a post has been fixed on the rook, with a lamp attached, which is always lighted towards du...

AMATEUR ATHLETIC SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 26 November 1867

AMATEUR ATHLETIC SPORTS.' The sixth meeting of these sports, and the first under the auspices of- the Viotorian Cricketers' Association, took' place on the 9th inst., on the Melboraeu ground. The attendance was by no ?means-so' large as ordinary, which can 'only be explained by the fact that the same influence deterred the public from attending as for the past few weeks has had such a baneful influence on all public amusements. Another reason for the falling off in the attendance may be found in the fact that Mr Harrison* has withdrawn from the contest for the Challenge Cup ; and this has made tho races for that a mere matter of form, the present holder, Mr Harris, being able to win them in his own time. The weather on Saturday was magni ? fioent, and in the ladies' pavilion there was a tolerably large concourse of the fair sex. It is a pity the committee did not contrive to get their programme over sooner. They might next time commence earlier (say at twelvs instead of ono). Six o'...
