BUSHRANGER IN VICTORIA AND CAPTURE OF THE BUSHRANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 26 November 1867

BUSHRANGING IN VICTORIA AND CAPTURE OF THE BUSHRANGERS. [FROM THE DAYLESFORD MERCURY, NOV.18] On Thursday afternoon a most daring OUT- rage was committed about twenty miles from   this, and on Saturday .the perpetrators, two men believed to have just come across from the New South Wales side, and fitted out in every way as bushrangers, were, after a determined resistance by one of them, safely lodged in the gaol here. The particulars, we believe, are   these: On Thursday foremnoon a Chinaman, walking through the forest between Blackwood and Trentham, was stuck up by two men on horseback; one apparently about forty-five years of age, carrying a rifle, and the other, sup- posed to be about twenty-five years of age, carrying a revolver. They robbed the Chinaman of between £3 and £4 and a silk handkerchief, having first tied him to a tree, in whjch condition they left him and rode off. After, remaining tied , up for some hours     &...

HEAVY FLOODS IN THE M'IVOR AND WILD DUCK CREEKS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 26 November 1867

HEAVY FLOODS IN THE M'IVOR AND WILD DUCK CREEKS.       On Tuesday night, at about half-past ten o'clock, the people of Heathcote were alarmed by an unusual sound resembling the roar of breakers on a rocky coast during a gale of wind. At first it was thought that the sound was the effect of an approaching hurricane on the dis- tant forests, but before those who had retired to rest could turn out, the M'Ivor Creek over- flowed its banks and inundated the dwellings situated on the flats, and at one time the town of Heathcote was menaced with destruction from the great rush of water which opened out and surrounded many habitations. As the flood rose, so people cleared out of their houses, carrying their children on to the high ground, and then attempting to save such articles of household goods as ap- peared most valuable and portable. In one or two instances people who had retired to rest slept on till the water had invaded their beds. Mr Richard ...

STANFORD AND CO , BOURKE STREET EAST.   The premises of Stanford and Co., agents   for Singer's Sewing Machines, attracted a large amount of attention.

THE KUREE DANCE AS WITNESSED BY THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Amongst the spectacles arranged for the en tertainment of the Duke of Edinburgh during his stay in the neighboring colony, one was a grand corrobboreo of the natives. The perform ance came off while he was at the lakes, and the singular scene was suoh as to afford evident gratification to the Duke, and to all present. There aro different kinds of corrobborces, nnd the one performed on this ocoasion was that known as the Kuri, whioh surpasses all the others in point of singularity and dramatic effect. It is generally praotised on moonlight nights, when the gathering together of several tribes, or some other occasion of importance, calls forth a display of these native amusements. The Kuri appear...

THE ABBOTSFORD ASYLUM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 26 November 1867

THE ABBOTSFORD ASYLUM. The first stone of a new building in connec tion with the Magdalen Asylum and Juvenile Reformatory at Abbotsford, conducted by the Nuns of the Good Shepherd, was laid on 3rd inst. by the Very Rev. Dr. Fitzpatrick, V.G., in the presence of about 2000 persons. In   June, 1863, the pioneers of this order of re ligion in Victoria arrived from the parent house at Augiers, in France. Subsequently three others came from Europe, and later still four ladies accompanied Arch-bishop Polding to this colony. One lady, a native of Australia, has joined the order, so that the community at present numbers twelve members, exclusive of postulants. The nuns have three classes of inmates under their control, namely, penitent females who have been rescued from the pro fession of sin, criminal female children who are sent to the reformatory by the magistrates, and little ones whoso parents are unable wholly to support them, but may be in a position to contribute a smal...

THE POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 26 November 1867

THE POST OFFICE. As the result of its architectural superiority and of its special fitness for illuminating pur poses, the Post Office looked surpassingly grand   on Monday night. The intention with which the illuminations were here planned was to give to give to this magnificent building an appear ance of palatial splendour, and though no ac- cessories might seem to be needed for that purpose in daylight, the effect produced on the night of the general illuminations was extremely grand and imposing. And this   result was attained by a simple but judicious disposal of the light employed for the purpose. Erected close to the kerb- ing on the Bourke-street side of the building   there were nine posts, and in the same position before the Elizabeth-street face of it   there were nineteen posts. These posts were all at an equal distance one from the other, and uniformly on each there were thirteen globe lights, twelve of them on so many...

BOILER EXPLOSION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 26 November 1867

BOILER EXPLOSION.   From the Ballarat Post of the 21st. inst. we select the following account of a boiler explosion:- Last evening about ten o'clock a report similar to the discharge of some heavy piece of artillery was heard in most parts of the town, and various were the conjectures as to the origin of the sound. Few, however, knew     until this forenoon that a boiler explosion un equalled by anything of the kind of past oc- currence here, and yet fortunately unattended     with any loss of life, had taken place. It     seems that during yesterday afternoon some   thing was noticed about the boiler used at the works of the Guiding-Star Company, near the junction of the Sebastopol and Smythesdale   roads. It is averred, but we are not prepared to state how far it is correct, that the engine driven called the attention of the engineer of the company more than once to...

DEPLORABLE ACCIDENT ON THE DERWENT RIVER. [HOBART TOWN MERCURY, NOVEMBER 12.] [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 26 November 1867

DEPLORABLE ACCIDENT ON THE DERWENT RIVER. [Hobart town Mercury, November 12.] One of the saddest casualties which has ever taken place ou the river occurred yester day afternoon. A boat containing six youths, the eldest of them seventeen years of age, foundered off Beauty. Bay, a short distance above Government House, and of her six young occupants four were almost instantaneously drowned. In the accounts of the affair, which we collected from various sources specified below, there are some discrepancies as to the manner in which the accident actually hap pened, and also as to the causes which produced or contributed to it, out of these an estimate can only be formed by taking each story sepa rately. The occupants of the boat when she was swamped were Matthew Clayton, his brother George Clayton, William Clarke, his brother Andrew Clarke, James Monk, and   Thomas Weaver, and of these Monk and Weaver were succored after having been for some time in the water. The boat in ...

ATTEMPTED MURDER AND SUICIDE AT WODONGA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 26 November 1867

ATTEMPTED MURDER AND SUICIDE AT WODONGA.                 FROM THE OVENS CONSTITUTION NOV. 15.] Yesterday (Thursday) Dr. Muller held an inquest on the body of William Bennett, found dead in a butcher's shop in Wodonga. Margaret Reese, wife of David Reese, de- posed that deceased was her stepfather. At     half-past eight o'clock that morning she saw Bennett, who came to the butcher's shop say- ing to his wife ' Good morning mother,' and adding his regret at what he had said to her the previous night. Mrs. Bennett refused to shake hands with him, and said she       considered herself no longer his wife. He addressed witness in a very insulting way, and presently took up a tomahawk and and     struck Mrs Bennett twice on the head. She fell to the ground, and he said   &nbsp...

WHITE MEN LOST AMONG THE BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 26 November 1867

WHITE MEN LOST AMONG THE BLACKS.       From the Cleveland Express (Queensland) of the 2nd November, we select the following account of the Hinchinbrook Island , Search Expedition:-                 The party of volunteers who went in search   of the white men reported by Captain Major and Mr Henry, of the steamer Black Prince, to have been seen by them on Hinchinbrook Island on the afternoon of Friday; the 18th October, left Townsville on Tuesday evening, the 22nd of October, fully equipped and pre visioned for a thorough search of the island, with a view to rescue the white men from. their uncomfortable and dangerous position.

"A LADY SWINDLER." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 26 November 1867

A LADY SWINDLER.   The following account of the adventuress, supplied by a correspondent, is too good to be lost: - A very clever series of depredations   have recently been perpetrated by a lady swindler as she is termed by tbe victims. It appears that for a length of time the lady has been in the habit of visiting lodging houses     and inquiring for apartments. Having satis fied herself of tbe respectability of the house, she proceeds to inquire into the character   of the neighborhood and having ob   tained the fullest information of the next door neighbor, she takes her leave with a promise to call again. Her next procedure is to call at one of the houses near, if they be lodging houses, stating that she has been re- commended by the person she first visited She describes herself as the wife of a squatter whose station is situated near Piggoreet, and that she requires the apartments for herself and hu...

VICTORIAN STATISTICS. THE RELIGIOUS, MORAL AND INTELLECTUAL PROGRESS OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 26 November 1867

VICTORIAN STATISTICS THE RELIGIOUS, MORAL AND lNTELLECTUAL PRO- GRESS OF THE COLONY.       The Seventh part of Mr Archer's statistics of the colony of Victoria, which shows its reli- gious, moral and intellectual progress during 1866, has recently been, laid before Parlia- ment, and is generally of a highly satis factory nature. The number of buildings   of all descriptions used for public worship shows a steady increase, the number for   the year being 1766 against 1695 in the previous year. The largest increase is among the Church of England, being 39 over the pre- vious year. The Catholics show a falling off compared with the previous years, the number being 262 in 1866 and 285 in 1865. Presby terian places of worship have increased 14 ; the Wesleyans have 16 additions ; and other   Christian denominations, 24. The Indepen dents have 78 ; the Baptists, 72 ; the Lutherans, 26 , the Disciples of Christ, 1...

THE LATE HON. C. H. EBDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 26 November 1867

THE LATE HON. C. H. EBDEN. Death is rapidly thinning the ranks of those who made the early history of Victoria. In a comparatively brief period have passed away Messrs Nicholson, Haines and Heales ; and now they have been followed by Mr Ebden. It appears but as yesterday since the occurrences in which Mr Ebken took a pro- minent part were recorded. The historian who essays to mark the earnest and de- voted struggle for political existence which a few of the leading spirits of the day fought and won can find no one who filled a more prominent part than Mr Ebden. He cast in his lot with the few bold and adventurous spirits who converted a "terra incognita" into an '"Australia Felix," and his fortunes have ever   since been identified with its progress. Mr Ebden was one of the few who ventured upon the experiment of purchasing land in the em-   bryo city of Melbourne. If there was ever an Eden of the imagination, a magnificent city on paper, which was drawn up...

RAIDS OF THE BUSHRANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 26 November 1867

RAIDS OF THE BUSHRANGERS. [fhosi tug vass courier, October 26.] On Thursday evening information was re ceived in Yass by way of Binalong, that dur ing the forenoon of that day a series of de predations .had ' been committed by some armed men upon, travellers between the Five mile and 'Reedy Creeks. At a later hour this news received confirmation from a person who had been travelling that day from Gundagai in charge of a valuable horse, the property, of the Very Rev. Father M'Alroy, and next (yes terday) morning, further particulars came to hand. It would appear on comparing the various statements, that on Thursday morning two men, ' well ' armed, called at the inn kept by Mr George Bodkin, at the Five-mile Creek, near Bogolqng, and inquired if the landlord was at homo. Mrs Bodkin, to whom the question was put, replied in the ne gative. They then asked when it was likely that ho would bo at home ; she told them that she did not expect Ids return for. a day or two. The taller of the t...

NEW BRIDGE OVER THE MURRUMBIDGEE, AT GUNDAGAI, NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 26 November 1867

NEW BRIDGE OVER THE MURRUM- BIDGEE, AT GUNDAGAI, NEW SOUTH WALES. The Murrumbidgee is a magnificent river, draining a vast pastoral territory in a tortuous course of about 1350 miles, of which 500 are navigable for vessels of moderate size. The district lying between the Murrumbidgee and the Murray is known as Riverina, a flat alluvial country, liable to inundation. A new     bridge has lately been thrown across the Mur- rumbidgee at Gundagai, on the main road from Sydney to Melbourne, via Albury ; and there has been great rejoicing thereat among the Riverine communities, who have suffered from the sudden rises and floods in which their great river capriciously indulges. The weary delays they have been subjected to ; the impatient watchings and waitings of their business men for goods which, though urgently needed, were obliged to remain stationary in drays shrouded with tarpaulins, until the waters abated ; and the enforced idleness of teamsters, are now b...
