THE FREE BANQUET. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 December 1867
THE FREE BANQUET. Undoubtedly, the largest assemblage of &nbsp; &nbsp; people there has ever been in Victoria was at the Zoological Gardens, 28th ult., where there was to have been a Free Banquet for the mil- lion. Early in the morning men, women, and children began to proceed to that pretty spot by the banks of the Yarra, opposite the Botanic Garden,s and about noon all means of approach &nbsp; to it were thronged by a long line of people on pleasure bent. The weather being cloudy and &nbsp; hot, windy and dusty, was not propitious for the promised feast, but this could not have dis- couraged many from visiting the grounds, for within a large radius around Melbourne those who did not do so must have been very few. As the city and suburbs could scarcely have spared from business and other occupations the sixty or seventy thousand people who were con- gregated in the Zoological Reserve on 28th ult., not an inconsiderable proportion of them must have be...

BANQUET AT THE BENEVOLENT ASYLUM. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A banquet was given, 28th ult., to the inmates of the Benevolent Asylum, in honor of the visit of his Royal Highness the Duke of Edin burch to this colony. A spacious marquee, &nbsp; handsomely decorated with evergreens, flags and Chinese lanterns, was erected on the ground immediately in front of the building, and &nbsp; under this tables to accommodate the large number to partake of the feast were laid out in first-class style. At the furthest end a table was provided for the members of the committee of the asy- lum, visitors and the press. Amongst &nbsp; &nbsp; those who sat down at this table were the hon. &nbsp; George Harker, chairman ; the Rev. Mr Rintel, Professor Wilson, Messrs O'Brien, Mayne, &nbsp; Curtain, Lynch, Clegg, Munce, Sturt, P.M. &nbsp; Tankard, Bacon, Burtt, M.L.A., M'Pherson, Cole, Bannin, Dr. Farrage, Dr. Smith and Dr. Neild. ...
PRINCE ALFRED IN VICTORIA. CONTINUED. ST. KILDA FIRE WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 December 1867
PRINCE ALFRED IN VICTORIA. CONTINUED. &nbsp; &nbsp; ST. KILDA FIREWORKS. On the day of the Galatea's arrival in &nbsp; &nbsp; Hobson's Bay the St. Kilda beach, which was crowded with private vehicles of every sort and shape, as well as pedestrians, assumed an ap pearance it has rarely before presented. The Esplanade and the jetty were so crowded that promenading was not accomplished without &nbsp; much difficulty. The balconies of the houses were inconveniently packed with their gaily attired occupants, and flags floated from every hotel and public building, and from many private residences along the whole length of the beach. No sooner had the Galatea cleared the Bluff than everybody began to move rapidly toward the Esplanade, which at five o'clock could scarcely be approached from either end. Shortly after eight o'olook a large bonfire was lighted on the Bluff, and numerous fireworks, which had been, purchased by the local council, were let ...
THE ILLUMINATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 December 1867
THE ILLUMINATIONS. ,'Out from the glare of a million lights, with eyes, dazzled by the brilliancy of colors as diverse -as those of the rainbow, with ears deafened with the tnurmmvof many voices, feet a- weary, and body generally dilapidated we come to describe a scene which certainly has no parallel in the history of Australasia, which probably has no more than ? a parallel in the history of the world. We may be drunk with loyalty, but our drunkenness takes, to it self: ;a very pleasant fdrm sometimes. It could clothe itself in no brighter' colors than it did on Tuesday night. ? If it triod over so hard it could not show itself more i vividly, or, speak so strongly to the senses; ? It was written on every wall, pictured fvptn ;o'vhry window,' reacted in the ..smiling,' jocund faces of many thousands. ' : To'i those who are familiar with Melbourne. in its work-' a-day attire, the sight was a marvellous one ; to those who know not Melbourne at all, and are not acquainted with the dee...
VICTORIA RACING CLUB—SPECIAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 December 1867
VICTORIA RACING CLUB— SPECIAL MEETING. &nbsp; Stewards : Captain Standish, C. B. Fisher, Esq., G. Watson, Esq., R. H. Power, Esq., A. W. Robertson, Esq. Judge: Captain Scott. Starter : G. Watson; Esq. SATURDAY, 30th November. &nbsp; If bright, balmy, breezy weather be Queen's weather, then the second son of that august &nbsp; lady is already enjoying in anticipation a por &nbsp; tion of his maternal inheritance. The Queen herself could not have brought a better climatic talisman than the Prince took with him to Saturday's races. The road offers little sub ject for comment. As the Prince passed along in his postitioned chariot he must have observed how fashionable a color the ocean blue has become. In every cottage, however modest its pretensions, the fair spec tators beamed bright in sashes, dresses, or head-gear, or something of the color that the sailor is presumed to love ; nor does he love it the less when sported by a pretty lass. Was there anyon...
THE LATE PETER SNODGRASS, ESQ. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 December 1867
THE LATE PETER SNODGRASS, ESQ. &nbsp; We regret to have to announce the death of Mr Peter Snodgrass, whom we must now de- scribe as the late member for Gipps Land. He died on 25th inst., at his residence, South Yarra, of aneurism of the heart. It is long since &nbsp; there has been such an awful instance of sudden death amongst our public men. Mr Snodgrass was in his place in the Legislative &nbsp; Assembly on Monday, apparently in the enjoy- ment of perfect health. He was the son of Colonel Kenneth Snodgrass, for a long period senior officer in command of the troops, and as such performed the duties of Officer Ad- &nbsp; ministering the Government on more than one occasion; both in New South Wales and Tas- mania. Mr Peter Snodgrass distinguished &nbsp; &nbsp; himself, while a mere lad, in the capture of the first band of bushrangers that ravaged Port Phillip; and the examples then set has been so well followed up that every succeeding...
