MELBOURNE. Wednesday evening [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 7 May 1886
MELBOURNE. [From our own Correspondent] Wednesday evening "HIave you seen the c.met!" is the questioi now-a-days. No one need be hbard up for a topic of conversation,tlie coumet supplies lhat. Our interest it the weather, the Womens' hospital bazaar, and the Scots Church dilficulty has wanted, anod our initds are occupied by our celestial visitor with the tail. Mr Ellery the gentleman in charge of the weather, says it is the Fabry comet, and no doubt he is correct, as least few will leave the temerity to question it, as Mr Ellery is a very dreadful per sonage currently credited with the gift of prophecy. It is true that the pro phecies hive an unple.sant habit if "goiogback" on Mr Bllcry, and when lie predicts frost people don dust-costs, while " set fair" itn the weather. guide is the signal for umbrellas and oil skins, still I am quite content to accept our astronomer vice-royal, as an aathority of the first water, and firmly believe that the fairy.tailed sky tra veller now visibl...
THE RUSSIAN WARSHIP VESTNIK. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 7 May 1886
THE RUSSIAN WARSHIP VESTNIK. The effort that has been made to satis factorily explain the singular proceedings of the Runsslan warship Vestlik, before she left.Hobson's.Bay on Thursday last, sug gested the advisableness of strict enquiry being made as to what really did occur. Accordingly. a member of "The 'Ago" reporting sitaf'yesterday visited Queons. cliff and Point Franklin, and had personhal interviews with several persons who had observed exactly what did take place. The result is that the account published in "The Age" is"proved to besubstantially correct.. It appears that the Vestnik left her moorings on Thursday morning, and steamed slowly down the West Channel till opposite Quecnsliff, when she altered her course and steered straight across towards Point Franklin, ultimately coming to an sanchorage inside theinnerchequered buoy, about 1000 yards from the shore. The wind at the time was blowing from the south-west, and was what nautical men would term "a six knot breeze," w...

MORWELL. Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 11 May 1886
MORWELL. [From our own Correspondent] Monday. Some weeks ago you published a series of articles under the head " Local Industries," • which were not only read ,with much interest, but were calculated to let persons, who live in one part of the district, know what is going on in the other parts. I purpose in my contributions to you, irregular though they may be, to give your readers a short account of our M .rwell industries, as there are several worth mentioning. To begin, I desire to give a " par" oa our cordial factory. This factory was established by Mr Howard Tonkyn, and operations in the facto'y were commenced on last r oing Day. Of course there was the stereotyled reason given for the establirnmrnt of a local factory-it was to supply a long felt want. But unlike many of the new ventures of the present day, Mr Tenkyn has been eminently successful, for. the want of good ' soft" dlinlks really existed. As the method of making arated brer ages, has a'ready been fully decribed in t...
