WRECK OF THE SHIP CRAIGBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 June 1891

WRECK OF THE SHIP ORAIGBURN. Publio interest, naturally excited by the early news of the wreok at the Barwon Heads, was kept at great tension during the whole of the 8th May by reports of the imminent peril of another vessel. This ship, the Oraigburn, a fine four - masted olippor, had left the previous night bound for Now Zealand. Finding that the weather had Bet in unusually rough, it was determined by the captain to stay within the Heads until daylight. Early in the morning, the sea being still high, an attempt was made to make the passage of the Heads in tow of a tug. When pretty well through the Rip, owing, no doubt, to the strain of the boisterous ourrents working crosswise between the two vessels, the tow line broke. The captain of the Oraigburn, finding that she was drifting dan gerously, put out all his anchors ; but the anohors were dragging hopelessly, and in the meanwhile, the tug was still beating about, unable to get in olose enough to throw a line aboard. Later two tug...

THE NEW CITY MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 June 1891

THE' NEW CITY MARKETS. For a long time past the serious lack of market accommodation, wherein the supply of fish, meat, game and general produce sent to the city from country districts could be dis posed of, has been sorely felt by every one engaged in the trade, though perhaps the public generally— the regular customers — have been the groeter sufferers through the inconvenience attending the present cramped system under which the sales are conducted. The agitation in favor of accommodation which should be a credit to so large a city as Mel bourne became week by week more pronounced, and this led to the City Council and the   Victorian Railway Commissioners entering into correspondence with tho object of securing an exchange of certain pieces of land. Parliament was also called in to aid         these bodies, and its sanction having been given, the City Council were enabled to treat for the possession of the large tri...

Anyone can go there, and; receive a welcome from the kindly matron, who is ready to place at the applicant's dis posal a oup of warm tea and some bread, and a comfortable bed with plenty of warm   blankets.

DEATH OF A CRIMEAN VETERAN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 June 1891

DEATH OF A CRIMEAN VETERAN. Thomas O'Grady, 65 years of age, died at the Immigrants' Home, St. Kilda-road, on 17th May. He was a Crimean veteran, and received the Victoria Cross for valor displayed in battle at Sebastopol, Inkerman and Alma. Private O'Grady, as he liked to hear himself called, suffered acutely from asthma for some time, and it was the immediate cause of his death. The deceased passed through exciting ex- periences in the Crimea during the latter part of 1854, and the honors he won showed that he must have shown conspicuous bravery. He obtained the Crimea medal of three clasps, representing the battles of Alma, Inkerman and Sebastopol, in which he fought ; but in addition he was deoorated with the Viotoria Cross, an emblem that is highly prized by every brave soldier, while at tho same time its wearer is entitled to a pension of £15 a year. He had moreover a medal for distinguished services in the field. It is very rarely that a soldier succeeds in getting awarded to...
