THE PRINOE AND THE COLLEGIATE SCHOLARS. Tho united ' Speech Day ' of the Wesley College, Church of England Grammar School, St. Patrick's College and Scotch College, took place in tho New Exhibition building on 21st ult., under tho presidency of ? H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh. Long before the publio entrance to tho New Exhibition building was thrown open an immense number of fashionably-dressed ladies and gentlemen had congregated in the street, and ? at ' eleven o'clock, when the door was opened,:' the crush to get into the great hall -was so great that it ?? required considerable fortitudo and physical capability on the part of the ladies to undergo the ordeal of transit. However, there was no flinching, and the labor . of pushing through tho crowd was qualified by the interesting event in prospective. Masses of persons continued to pour in, and as the fine hall filled it presented a vory brilliant appear ?ance. A slightly raised platform, approached by three or four' Btops ? and r...

WRECK OF THE SHIP LIGHT OF THE AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 February 1868

WRECK Oi? THE SHIP LIGHT OF THE AGE. Immediately on the tolograph office being opened Thursday morning, the appalling news that a large ship bad gone ashore on the rooks running off from Point Lonsdale, during the night, was transmitted. Shortly afterwards, however, it wag ascertained that although, there appoavud but little diance of saving the ship or cargo, as the musts had been out away and the vessel herself bilged, yet the passengers were in a place of safety, having boon taken on board the pilot schooner Hip. : Immediately on receipt of the intolligenco two or three tug-boats were despatched to render whatever assistance wa& possible, and at one o'olock the Wtirhawk steamer went down with Lloyd's agent to look after the vessel and ascertain full particulars. About 4 o'clock in the afternoon the pilot schooner Rip came up to Hobson's Bay with the passengers, who wore under the directions of a representative of the agents, Messrs Lorirner, Marwood and Borne, and were se...

THE FANCY DRESS BALL IN THE .

That has been manifest any day the last few weeks to tffe'moit iciaBual 'observer. Knowing that they had the : spaoipus Exhibition building at their entire . disposal for the evening, the Corporation of ?

THE BELLS OF GEELONG. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 February 1868

THE BELLS OF GEELONG. Future chroniclers of the history of Geelong will have the pleasing task of relating how on Christmas Day, 1867, the heart of many an old London colonist was gladdened by a sound he thought he had parted with for ever when he sailed from the vicinity of Bow Bells to take up his abode amongst the slab and shingle tenements of Geelong in its infancy. To an old resident, Mr. Joseph Holdsworth, who longed to hear the familiar chimes of " Queen Charlotte's Change" again, the town is indebted for initiating the voluntary contri butions to order from the celebrated three   hundred years established bellfounders of Whitechapel, London, Messrs Mears and Co., the peal of eight which has   within the past few days been hung in the tower of St. Paul's Church.   It is four years since Mr Holdsworth first wrote to inquire the cost from the founders, on the roof of whose then new factory he had himself worked as a boy forty years ago ; b...

FATAL ACCIDENT IN CORIO BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 February 1868

FATAL ACCIDENT IN CORIO BAY. A melancholy accident occurred on Monday, 80th ult., in the vicinity of Geelong by which the lives of Mr Robert Upston, rate-collector     to the corporation, and of Henry Robinson, a fisherman, have been sacrificed. The catas-       trophe was brought about under the following extraordinary circumstances : — During the severe gale which swept over Corio Bay on 27th ult., an open boat under sail, in which   MrUpston and a friend were fishing, was driven on a mud bank, at a point in Stingaree Bay, near the rifle butts. In attempting to shove the boat off, Mr Upston nearly lost his life through sinking in the mud, and on regaining the boat he and his companion arrived at the conclusion that they should be compelled to remain in their wet clothes until the tide receded ; consequently, it was not until five o'clock on the following morn ing that they were enabled to get ashore.

MY DYKES'S ESSAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 February 1868

MR DYKES'S ESSAYS.*       The paper and printing of this neat, little volume may be considered perfection. There is one regret only to be expressed, regarding the volume, and that is that it isn't several   times larger. It contains four essays alto-     gether; the first being of considerable length, but, the others very brief. In the preface Mr Dykes tells us that the substance of the   first essay, was originally preached before the National Bible Society of Scotland; and of the remaining essays it may be said that they probably formed ports of a sermon on the subject discussed in them. Headers may be inclined to ask, what is , the use       of changing from thoe sermon to the essay form; why didn't Mr Dykes give us sermons without any disguise at all and lots   of them too? Mr Dykes had his own reasons, no doubt, for the plan he has adopt...

MRS HICK'S CASE.                 It will be remembered that we published the     particulars of the case of Mrs Hicks, the Hyde   Park cake-seller, who was unceremoniously   ejected from the cottage she held by royal favor, in order that the contractor for the sale of cakes in the Great exhibition should not be interfered with ; and who, tired out with in- effectual efforts to obtain a hearing of her   case, procured funds wherewith to emigrate to Victoria, by the sale of a little brochure by Charles Dickens- "The cake-seller's Story."         We told how the badly used woman clung to the belief that if she could get her case fairly laid before the Queen, she would have justice done to her. The arrival by the Duke of Edin- burgh was hailed as a favorable opportunity...

CHILD MURDER AT WINTER'S FLAT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 February 1868

CHILD MURDER AT WINTER'S FLAT. An inquest was held on 4th inst., by the dis trict coroner, at the George Hotel, Bal- larat, on the bones of a human infant, supposed to have been first murdered and afterwards burned by its mother, Ellen Sare. The pro- ceedings, are thus reported in the Courier ; — Eliza Jane, White deposed as follows : — I     am sixteen years old and have been nurse girl at Mrs. Paulmann's, Winter's Flat, since the 23rd December 1867. I slept in the kitchen with Ellen, the prisoner. From my bed   I could see anything going on in the kitchen through the cracks between the     boards. On last Sunday I went down to go to bed in the kitchen at about ten o'clock p.m.   There was no one either in the kitchen or the bedroom, but there was a light burning. I shouted out "Ellen," but got no answer,   so I called out again, when she answered me from the back of the house, and asked me t...
