THE FREE BANQUET IN THE BOTANICAL GARDENS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 December 1867

THE FREE BANQUET IN THE BOTANICAL GARDENS       The Free Banquet or "snack,'' which was   given to all comers in the Botanical Gardens, on Tuesday says the Geelong Advertiser, if contrasted with that lately given in Melbourne might be deemed a comparative success, but   withal was a failure, if the intention of those who contributed the supplies is taken into consideration. Certainly some of the more   rowdy of the gathered multitude appeared to enjoy themselves, but to persons of the most ordinary civilised habits the exhibition pre- sented: at the tables where the food was dis- tributed was most disgusting. This, perhaps, may not have been the fault of those who had the management of the affair, for their arrange- ments evinced considerable care, and reflected credit upon them for the indefatigable manner in which they must have prosecuted their ar- duous and self-imposed task. The scene   o...

THE BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 December 1867

THE BALL. 'We extract from the local journals the -fol- lowing particulars : — . The hall of the Mechanics' Institute never looked better than on Monday evening, when the brilliant and fashionable assemblage welcomed his Royal Highness Prince Alfred and his Ex- cellancy Sir. J. H. T. Manners Sutton. The ball committee were indefatigable in their exer- tions to conduct the ball on such a principle that all classes of the community of good repute could be present, and to make it eclipse all others previously given in the town, for which purpose they engaged at a high price the whole of the Mechanics' Institute, and removed the platform in the large hall, to make more room for the expected large number of dancers. The removal of the platform gave an addition of 20 feet in length to the hall, making altogether a space of 85 feet by 50 feet on which the company could trip it on the ' light fantastic toe.' The hall was decorated under the super- intendence of Mr Wheatland, secretary to th...

Not the ordi nary life of business as it is seen when the bulls and bears meet at tho Comer to sell each other, but a great, healthy, joyous life, which bespeaks the approaoh of a great event. For the first time in its history, this great district, which has grown into existence in fourteen years, is called on to welcome a son of the Queen of England. That it is prepared to do so right loyally is evident by the signs around. Tho streets swarm with the animal called man ; they are wreathed in the gayest of gay smiles, and |tho houses and house-tops are '.adorned in a manner it has been cus tomary to adorn houses and housetops^ in all time since royalty was an institution amongst leal-hearted Englishmen. If the Royal Reception Commission has favored Ballarat more than it has other places in its ?arranseinents, Ballarat has evidently deter mined to' show its gratitude in a becoming ...

THE PBINOE AT COLAC. In reporting the proceedings connected with the reception of the Prince at Colac, the Observer gives tho: followingparticulars :— . The first position of the mounted 'cavalcade was talcon up at some distanco past tho Great Western Hotel, on a spot known . as Hurkor's reserve, and a line of horsoinen was drawn up on either side of the road, in anticipation of tho immediate advent of our expeoted visitor, it being now about noon, the sun's rayspow erful and the thirst universal, Shortly after this state of things bad been ar/ived at a courier passed, and, informed tUoso Yfho VfQVQ thus patiently waiting that the objeot of their anticipations could not be expected! to arrive before three o'clock. This had tha effect of a dissolution, many taking to tha shade of the neighboring trees and not a few to the shelter ef the not very distant hotel.

EXTRAORDINARY OUTRAGE IN THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 December 1867

EXTRAORDINARY OUTRAGE IN THE CITY. A serious disturbance, resulting in loss of life,   took place on 27th ult. at the Protestant Hall, Stephen-street. The front of the hall had   been decorated with a large transparency in honour of the visit of H.R.H. the Duke of Edin-   burgh. It represented William the Third crossing the Boyne, with Britannia on one side, and the motto, ' This we will maintain,' on the left side. The exhibition of an illumination of such a decided party character was generally condemned as being in very bad taste and likely to provoke the animosities of' a large portion of the Irish- population. During the   time the illumination was lit up on Tuesday evening, a number of boys and young men collected in front of the hall and made sarcastic   remarks on the subject of the painting ; one or two of the more venturesome among the crowd throwing a few stones at it, and causing a slight amount of damage. ...

THE LATE WILLIAM THOMAS, GUARDIAN OF ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 December 1867

THE LATE WILLIAM THOMAS, GUARDIAN OF ABORIGINES.     Mr Thomas was born in the city of West-   minster, London, of Welsh parents. He was     the son of an officer in the British army, who was killed at the battle of Cairo, in Egypt, the same battle in which the gallant Sir Ralph Abercrombie fell. In his early years the sub- ject of our memoir received an education com- mensurate with his position in life, and, as was customary for men of his rank of' life at that period, made the "grand tour"     on the Continent. The chief part of this time, nearly twelve months, he spent in Spain principally at Gilbraltar, at which depot his brother was chief of the commissariat depart- ment. At the conclusion of this part of his career, Mr Thomas returned to London and       opened a; school in the Old Kent-road, which proved a success. He acquired here a consi- &a...

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

THE ALEXANDRA DIGGINGS. In this number we give two views of Alex- andra, one of the new rashes much talked   of lately, and, indeed, the most promising of them. The township, which is represented on page 12, is on the Goulburn; twenty miles from Yea. Like all new townships, it consists       chiefly of public-houses and stores. It is use-     less attempting to state what the population is, as it is daily receiving accessions. The occu-   pation is mining, of course, either in quartz or alluvial workings. We believe that payable alluvial ground has not been found to any   great extent ; there are a few patches how- ever, and one of the best of them is repre sented on the 13th page, in the centre of the picture. With respect to quartz reefs many payable, and even rich leaders, are being   opened up. Among those which maintain their prestige for good yields, and from al...
