LAYING THE FOUNDATION STONE OF THE ALFRED GRAVING DOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 February 1868

LAYING THE FOUNDATION STONE OF THE ALFRED GRAVING DOCK. Assembled within the portion of the graving dock, hereafter to be known as the "Alfred.       Dock" was a large crowd of ladies, inter- mingled with the usual proportion of gentle- men, who had asssembled to witnesss the Prince's last public act in Victoria. Amongst the com- pany assembled on the dais, which had been erected round the stone, were his Honor Sir Redmond Barry, the hon. the chief Secretary,     the hon. the Treassurer, the Mayor of Mel- bourne, the Mayor of Sandhurst, and other gentlemen. When the Prince arrived he took the station under the dias, and the hon. W. M. E. Vale, Minister of Public Works, advanced and said:- "May it please your Royal Highness, - I feel it will be a satisfaction to the people of this colony to have your name associated with one of our great public works, and I therefore in their behalf, ask you to allow this dock to bear y...

MECHANICS INSTITUTE, COLLINGWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 4 February 1868

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE, COLLING- WOOD. The foundation stone of the Mechanics' Institute in East Collingweod was laid by H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh on 27th ult. H.R.H. arrived a few minntes before the hour fixed. He was accompanied by the hon. Eliot Yorke, and drove the brougham in which he came himself. The escort consisted of a few mounted troopers. The preparations made by those connected with the institute were of the, usual character, and although the deco- rated arch, which formed the entrance to the arena where the ceremony was gone through, did, at a later period of the day, come crash- ing down, to the serious damage of those who were taking part in the proceedings, it would hardly be fair to attribute any blame to those concerned in its erection. The unusual viol- ence of the storm which swept over Mel- bourne on 27th ult. left evidences behind of a   much more fatal character than the accident at Collingwood. Fears were entertained before the erection fell tha...

RUMORED GOLD DISCOVERY NEAR BRISBANE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 3 March 1868

RUMORED GOLD DISCOVERY NEAR BKISBANE. [QUEENSLAND GUARDIAN, FEB. 17.] The rumor which spread about the town on Saturday morning, that n payable gold-field had been discovered within a few miles of Brisbane, caused cousi'lerablo excitement amongst all classes of tho community. Tho most absurd reports were current us to the quantity of gold found, and the numbers who had applied for miners' rights. By some it was snid that a nugget, far surpassing in size tho oighty pounder lately discovered at Gympio, had been brought into town ; and we were coir Silently nssured that, at least, two hundred ap plications had been made for miners' rights, During- yesterday (Sunday) the excitement was, to a, groat extent, kept up ; an I mimbe-ra, wo believe, took a trip to Euoggera, tho supposed site of the new field. Everyone set mid delighted at tho idea of a real gold-field being discsvered closo to Iho town, and in the enthusiasm of tho moment tho read to Gympio was, we fwir, forgotten. So fur as w...

THE GALATEA ENTERING, SYDNEY HARBOR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 3 March 1868

THE GALATEA ENTERING , SYDNEY HARBOR, v - ; On the 21st January H.R.H. Prince Alfred arrived at Sydney, and bad accorded to him as hearty a welcome as loyal subjects to tho British tbrone can give. The first demonstra tion took the form of a grand naval reception, in which a flotilla of steamers . took the pro minent nort. It was a erreat success, and both the Prince and the SydneyiteB have reason to be proud of it. ' As a naval officer,' says the Sydney Morning He, aid, ' his Royal Highness is understood .to have highly appreciated the reception prepared for him in our colonial fleet of sea-going steamers, which in their ap pointed order formed a double line, through which the Galatea passed onward to her desti nation.' The vessels having' been so passed, then followed two and two in the wake of the long-expected ship — thus forming a most beautiful, imposing, and unprecedented sight. At' a convenient distance from oar rugged, rook-bound coast, her Majesty's ship Galatea, with .her...

LOSS OF THE SHIP ANNA DOROTHEA [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 3 March 1868

LOSS OF THE SHIP ANNA DOROTHEA By the barque Briton, whioh arrived on 5th February from Maiden Island, there have arrived Captain Flannery and ten of the crow of the above vessel, which was wreoked on Starbuck Island in the South Pacific. The chronicle of disasters to shipping, either in this port or connected with it, has daring the past month or two been rather long, and the latest to hand is this report of the wreck of the Anna Dorothea, which will take its place among the numerous and interesting records of the perils \9hi0h beset those ' who go down to the sea in ships.' Captain Flannery was well known in this port several years ago, when in command of the barque John M' Vicar. Of tho present catastrophe, Captain, Flannery reports :— ' Left Royal Roads,': -Vancouver's Island, on 27th September, with a cargo of timber, for Sydney, foe. orders, to the address of Henry Moore, Esq.

THE KEROSENE SHALE BEDS OF THE UPPER DAWSON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 3 March 1868

THE KEROSENE SHALE BEDS OF THE UPPER DAWSON. [BY CVCAS, IN THE BRISBANE C0UEIEH, FEB. 1.] At this time, when public attention is directed to now discoveries of gold at Maryborough and ether places — copper, lead, and silver on the Burnett — coal, kerosene, and various other metals and minerals in different parts of Queensland ; and when tho question of develop ing those natural resources ib bo prominently pointed to and believed in by the Parliament, every little scrap of information on any of these — or on any kindred subject — may not be out of place, but may bo of -the utmost use. A slight sketch of the undeveloped kerosene jhal beds of the Upper Dawson district will probably be at least interesting, if not valu able. In. writing this paper as a sketch of the geological oharaoter of the country in which those kerosene beds lie, it has been thought advisable to make the town of Taroom the start point of our survey.

THE FIRST AUSTRALIAN MONITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 3 March 1868

THE FIRST AUSTRALIAN MONITOR. No harbor is now considered to be in a pro per position for defence without having a 'Monitor' afloat. But although tho fact is recognised in Europe and America, it was not expected that the less exposed shores of Aus tralia would be supplied with the newest novelty in warlike armament until a considerable period had elapsed. 'Those who calculated in this way, underrated tho pro gressive spirit of the inhabitants of this newest division of tho world. Tho Victorian Monitor is now actually in courso of construction by an English Iirm, under contract to bo finished ut the beginuing of 1869. She will be an iron clad cupola ship of 2107 tons, and 250 nominal horse-power, fitted with twin screw-propellers, so that sho will be able to turn in a very limited space. Tho guns, four in number, will be worked -within tho two cupolas, and will be of the kind known as 18-ton guns, throwing 600 lb shot, tho equivalent of the former 22 J -ton guns, tho largest ever mad...

NOTES OP A TRIP TO THE BLACK SPUR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 3 March 1868

NOTES OF A- TRIP TO THE BLACK . SPUR. I have just returned from a week's excur sion which has yielded more real satisfac tion than any of my little ' oats' in the country hitherto. I went as far as tho Black Spur on the Wood's Point .-. road, or what is commonly called the Yarra Track. I went up one side of the Yarra. by Kow and Lilydale, and came back on the other side by Eltham and Heidelberg. Both iti going and returning I saw mniiy bits of scenery which would delight an artist's eye. I am not an artist, neither am I an art-critic, but I know when I am pleased with 'a landscape, cither as nature made it, or us art can pnt it on the canvas ; and I know of no re gion in Victoria where an adept with the pen cil could find moro subjects to nil his portfolio in a day or two than in this district of* rivor, valley and mountain, which lies within a day's journey of Melbourne. Many a time do you come upon such a scene as this: a stoop, rough, brick- colorod road, with a stump or two in t...
