BUSH FIRES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 January 1865

BUSH FIJ&ES. A vekv extensive bush fire occurred in the Bendigo district1 on 1st inst. The Advertiser states that ' commencing in the forenoon in the Whipstick Scrub, somewhere about the neighborhood of Flasr tetaffHill, it burned- furiously all day, taking asouth east direction. As the scrub in this line is dense, and has been completely dried up by a! long time of hot weather, it readily took fire, and the devouring element rushed rapidly and remorselessly on, driven by strong gusts of wind from the north-west. Im mense clouds of smoke darkened the air, and for miles to tho leeward of the fire the heat was in tolerable. ? The country on both sides of the railway from Harcourt to Ravenswood was also on fire, the conflagration apparently having been caused by tbe sparks from the locomotives. Some of the fencing of the railway was ? likely to fall a prey to the ilames. ... Bush fires were observed in the direction of Huntly, Mount Ida and G-oulburn. Cas'tlemaine experienced a...

THE LAUNCESTON CHAMPION RACE. ThROM OUR OWN COBItESPONDENT.l On the morning of the race the city - was crowded, and the greatest excitement pre vailed, this being one of tbe most open champion races ever known.

By some, Musi dora was taken against the field.. The winner was hardly mentioned. Tuesday was a splen did day, but the weather was very hot. Upon arriving at the course, I had a look at the horses, and then a walk, round. I cannot say much for the course.

TARANAKI. OCCUPATION OF TUE NGANA, NEAR THE STONY RIVER I hanqatahtiaI . Since the arrival of the Defence Minister, from Auckland, the inactivity that has so long paralysed the energies of the Taranaki settlers appears at last to be replaced by a spirit of determination to do some thing on the part of the Oovarnment in the shape of locating the military settlers on their homes. The town acres will at once he allotted, and, as soon as circumstances will allow, the fifty-acre farms will be handed over to their future respective occupants. As a preliminary step, on Saturday last, Colonel Warre and staff, accompanied by Major Atkinson and Mr Parris, rode to Tataraimaka, where they remained for the night.

THE YIELD OF GOLD FOR 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1865

THE YIELD OF GOLD FOR 1864. In glancing at the progress of the colony during the past year, the subject that of necessity demands the first notice, and 'which, from its paramount im portance, first forces itself upon our attention, is the condition and prospects of the mining industry. It is to the unparalleled wealth of her gold mines that Victoria owes the proud position amongst the Australian colonies which , she at present occupies, and, notwithstanding the importance that her other industrial- pursuits are gradually attaining, it is on her gold that for some time to come she will have principally to depend. Under these circumstances it is a matter of no . small amount of congratulation that, as compared with 1863, the gold mines of Victoria exhibited, during 1864, no signs of decline, but that, 'on the contrary, the position and remune ration of those engaged in the mining industry of the colony underwent a sensible improvement. Re viewing the progress of our gold-fields during...

The chairman said that, having read in the papers the advertisement of the proposed society, he had deemed it his duty to attend the meeting. He was of opinion that the establishment of such a society would bo specially serviceable 'both to arts and to manufactures. Societies similar to that which they were met to project had been in existence on the continent of Europe and in England; and, as they had been found useful in these old countries, it would be a wise thing for a young country like Australia to follow the example.
