THE CALEDONIAN SOCIETY. ANNUAL GATHERING. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 January 1865

THE CALEDONIAN SOCIETY. ANNUAL GATHERING. The seventh annual gathering of the Ballarat Caledonian Society took place on Monday, the second day of the New Tear. The trysting place was, as for several years past, at the Copenhagen   grounds, and as the day was fine the gathering was a highly successful one. Not even the counter at- tractions elsewhere, nor the great demands made on     the holiday-keeping capacity of the public by the   late Orphan Fete, and the intermediate term of holidays, could make any appreciable difference in   the appearance of the gathering, where, as hereto-   fore, the red lion and the thistle were in the   ascendant. Not fewer than from six to   seven thousand persons were present on the grounds, and the financial results of the gathering must be considered highly gratifying. There were taken at the gates £310 16s, for entries £21, and for booths £84, ma...

SUNDAY SCHOOLS NEW YEAR'S DAY PICNIC IN THE BOTANIC RESERVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 January 1865

SUNDAY SCHOOLS NEW YEAR'S DAY PIC- NIC IN THE BOTANIC RESERVE. On Monday,tbe Botanic Garden Reserve presented   a scene of enjoyment such as it has rarely, or never,   except on tbe occasion of tbe Orphan Asylum Fete   on Boxing Day, been witness to. The ground was   literally covered with parties of Sunday School   children from all quarters of Ballarat and Ballarat   East, who had chosen the opening of the new year   as the occasion for holding their anunal picnic. And   right merrily they all seemed to enjoy themselves,   the beautiful situation of the reserve, and the   splendor of the weather contributing alike to pre- mote that feeling of jollity and innocent excitement   which seemed to prevail in every direction. The   appearance of so many children, all attired in holiday   dress, and accompanied by their pa...

STOCK REPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 January 1865

STOCK REPORTS. DENILIQUIN.-Holders of store cattle arriving now at Deniliquin come fully impressed with the idea that their mobs will realise extraordinary prices. The news of the great demand existing in the south for this description of stock has travelled to New England, and speculators and owners having purchased and started with an idea that they will meet a wonderful market, are not pre- pared to receive the news of a fall in fat stock, which more or less affects the price of store. The local mar- ket is still good, and yesterday, when Mr McCullough (Power, Rutherford and Co.) offered Mr Stivens' mob of 800, a fair lot, but young, and the owner refused to sell at 45s all round, considerable surprise was felt at his ignorance of the real state of the market. It is generally believed that at the present time the best market for store cattle coming from the North is at Denilquin, and that the above offer was above rather than below the value of the cattle. We have heard of no tra...

PICNIC AI LAL LALA. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 January 1865

PICNIC AT LAL LAL.   Lal Lal was all alive with gaiety on Monday. In addition to nearly a thousand persons taken there by railway, there were between twelve and fourteen hundred who came in every imaginable conveyance, from the light and spruce buggy to the humble farmer's dray. The special train of thirteen car- riages from Ballarat, which should have started at   9 a.m., did not get away from Ballarat East till about 9.45. There was on the platform awaiting its arrival between three and four hundred of the Catholic School children, besides a large crowd of adults. After starting, however, only twenty-three minutes elapsed ere it reached its destination. The Lal Lal falls do not at present exist, owing to the head waters of the creek being dammed and otherwise entirely diverted. The beauty of this picturesque bit of scenery is sadly marred by the absence of falling water. This drawback is, how- ever, not without its advantages, as the transit from side to ...

THE ANGLO-AUSTRALIAN TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 January 1865

THE ANGLO-AUSTRLIAN TELEGRAPH. The following interesting correspondence, with     reference to the practicability of carrying a telegraph from England to Australia, has appeared in the Times - " To the Editor of the Times. "Sir,-I find by your impression of to-day that I   have two long-electric cable engineers to deal with-- Sir Charles Bright rejoining and Hr Henry Forde backing up. I have not the least objection to the opposition of any number of these gentlemen. Let us begin by looking to the results of their previous performances before we trust them with our money in laying down cables to China and the Antipodes. The great Atlantic cable was a total failure, accom- panied by a heavy loss. No one has succeeded in picking op the two ends, or, as the case may be, its many two ends. It lies at the bottom of the ocean, to be traced by some future geologist in a future re- volution of the earth's formation. The Red Sea cable gave one squeak, an...

"To the Editor of the Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 January 1865

"To the Editor of the Times.   " Sir,-The points at issue between your corres- pondent ' C.' and myself are now reduced to a very small compass. The sea between Timor and Port Essington, ' almost every foot ' of which he asserted before to be 'so deep that it has never been fathomed,' is now admitted to be shallow, except for the distance ot seventy miles, which he says, is ' so deep that even the skill of Captain Denham could not fathom it.' This triumph over the powers of the marine surveyor is altogether imaginary, inas- much as he did not attempt to take any soundings within seventy miles to the south of Timor. Should it prove that the depth of water in any part of this short space is greater than will admit of the cable being raised for repairs, the loss, in the event of a portion needing to be replaced, would be trifling; but as I said before, there is no reason to expect any very great depth in this locality. "As regards the land line in Australia, the diffi- cul...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. j ADELAIDS, 3rd January, j Tbe Perth Gazette (Wetters Australia), comment- ing on the settlement on the North-West Coast at j Camden Harbor, expresses deep disgust at the !

EXPLORATION TO CARPENTARIA AND SACK. On Friday last, Mr M'In tyre, an explorer in search of new grazing country, arrived in Echuca, ann supplied to the Riverine Herald an interesting narrative of Ins adventures. The following is Ute most important part of the history :-" The Messrs M'Intyre Brothers left Victoria about two years since with sheep, cattle, and horses, and a splendid outfit, intending to proceed to the Gulf of Carpen- taria. On their arrival on the Darling they found that river flooded, and were unable to cross their sheep, Mr Duncan M'Intyre, the gentleman now in Victoria, then proceeded northwards .with a small party, in order to find a good route as far as Cooper's Creek. In the first journey he reached those waters, and discovered several new creeks and lakes on the trip, and ascertained that no difficulty ; existed for taking stock to that point. On his re- ! turn he learned to his great disappointment that the Queensland Government had forbidden the en- trance of...
