THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1865

TEJil MONTH. Parliament resumed after the Christmas recess on ? the 17th January. The Land Act Amendment Bill was passed through committee iu the Legisla tive Assembly with but little alteration, and was read a third time without a division. In the Upper House, the bill passed the second reading without a division, and is now under consideration in committee. The bill appears likely to be ac cepted by all parties in the character of a compro mise, and it will probably be passed without under going any very material alteration. ' The Treasurer submitted his budget on the 19th January, and the discussion en the proposed fiscal changes lasted until the 9th inst. The chief altera tions proposed in the existing duties, were the reduction of the impost on tea, sugar, and opium, by one half, in order to bring these articles on a level with their position in the other colonies, with the view of v conserving our colonial trade. .The total amonnt of new 'imports' it ivas proposed to levy was ...

EXPLOITS OF THE SHENANDOAH [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1865

EXPLOITS OF THE SHENANDOAH Captain 'Waddell of the Shenandoah, it seems was not particular as to the means housed for increasing the number of his crew, after he had fairly started on his niratical career. If report is true, he resorted to conduct of a most cruel and barbarous character to compel some of hia prisoners to enter his service. The first crew he practised on was that of the schooner Lizzie M. Stacey, which he took, and burned. The crew were, of course, put in irons for the first night — they with the mate being penned up in the forecastle with a number of sheep and fowls. Next day they were brought out on deck to breakfast, which meal they had to toko with both hands shackled. When asked to work they refused, on the ground that they were prisoners of war. They were told that it was no odds -what they were, they must go to work. In a short time, all the crew, except the mate and one seaman, consented to work. The mate was then taken into the forecastle and handcuffed. A l...

ANNUAL MEETING OF THE MECHANICS* INSTITUTE. Tho annual general meeting pf the members of the Mechanics1 Institute was held on 30th ult. The meeting, which was; very thinly attended, was pre sided over by Mr John Edwards, senior. The minutes of the last annual meeting having been confirmed, Mr W. Thompson, the secretary, read the report for the past year, which stated that the revenue of the institution had in all respects equalled that of the preceding year, and that the abstract of the treasurer's account current for the year 1804 showed that the total amount of the liabilities of the institution on the 31st December, was £300 7s 4d, inclusive of the amount due to members for library deposits, showing a large re duction of the liabilities of tho institution, as com pared with the previous year. The committee had, therefore, evei-y confidence in stating it as their belief that the institution will be free from debt by the end of I860. The revenue for tho last year was stated . to be...

A NUGGET OF 190 OUNCES DISCOVERED AT FRYER'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1865

A NUGGET OF 190 OUNCES DISCOVERED AT FRYER'S CREEK.   It is very rarely that we have been called upon to record so gratifying a piece of intelligence as is conveyed in the above heading. Large nuggets have been scarce enough of late, and at is therefore not surprising that the discovery which we are about to notice should have created a genuine sensation   in Castlemaine, yesterday afternoon. The facts are as follow: — On Wednes- day afternoon, a lad, fourteen years of age, named Jeremiah Fullerton, son of an old resident in Nuggetty Gully, sunk a hole in some unbroken ground at no great distance from where, about six years ago, a heavy lump of gold was unearthed. The boy, whose parents are — or we should say were — by no means   well off, was in the habit of searching about for what gold he could obtain in the old workings, and, by a lucky chance, commenced to dig upon the spot from which he obtained this splendid specimen. When he had sunk ab...

GREAT FIRE IN PRINCES STREET, DUNEDIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1865

GREAT FIRE IN PKINOES STREET, ? DUNEDIN. I*or the third time' within ten days the inhabitants of Dunedin have been startled from their sleep by the fierce pealing of the alarm bell. We have now to re cord a fire which, for its calamitous extent, is second in the history of Dunedin only to the great conflagra tion in Stafford-street. But that fire resulted in little injury to persons, and there -was no loss of life. The one that occurred on Tuesday, the 24th January, has certainly resulted in very severe injury to several per sons. Glad, indeed, shall we be if examination should prove that there has not also been a considerable loss of life. The alarm bell was rung shortly before two o'clock. Those who were in houses in the neighbor hood of Eattray-street and High-street, or noaring Princes street, were met by a suffocating smoke, through which nothing could be seen but which was laden with great flakes' of fire. Almost ere one could ask where the danger was, flames shot out high and...

BEN HALL'S GANG NEAR BERRIMA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1865

BEN HALL'S GANG NEAR BERRIMA. [FROM THE SYDNEY EMPIRE, FEBRUARY 7.] The bushranging gang, instead of being dispersed or captured by the regiments of police after them, seem to be daily increasing in their daring and depredations. A gentleman who reached Sydney yesterday, from the neighborhood of Berrima, has furnished us with the following particulars of what took place in that vicinity on Friday and Saturday last. The gang, consisting of Ben Hall, Gilbert and Dunn, were seen at Glenrock, near Marulan, on Friday. Shortly afterwards, some of the Berrima police made their appearance, and were informed that the bushrangers had gone towards Paddy's River, and had said that they intended to visit Jenkins's place and Cowra next day. Word was also sent to Mr Blue, at Cowra, of the intended visit, and preparations were made to give the bush- rangers a warm reception. Mr Blue and six men armed themselves with two double-barrelled guns, a revolver, axes and such other weapons as were readily ...

INTERCOLONIAL CRICKET MATCH. MELBOURNE V. SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1865

INTERCOLONIAL CRICKE T MATCH. ilELBOUItNE V.- SYDNEY. The intercolonial match ? between the Melbourne Cricket Club and Albert Cricket Club came off on Thursday, 9th February, on the ground of the latter. The. weather was all that could be desired, and a great number of spectators -were present. ? .The toss was won'by the Albert team, .who elected to go to the wiokets, putting in Gilbert and Thompson, to the. bowling of Gaffyn and Con way, who were in1 fine form, and scattered the stumps right and left to the surprise- of the spectators and dismay of the batsmeil. An opinion was generally prevalent that the Albert team were unlucky, as the ground was nearly, everything that could be desired, and it wns known they were capable of much better play. The opportunities of fielding wore, however, very scant, the bolls being; delivered too well oh the wicket to admit of it, as ' will be apparent' from the result. Tae innings was over before lunch,* for tho small total of 36' runs ; and, on ...

THE DAYLESFORD MURDER. DAYLESFORD, Tuesday, 7th February. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1865

THE DAYLESFORD MURDER. ( FROM OCR SPECIAL REPORTER.] Daylesford, Tuesday, 7th February. After three remands, extending over about a month, David Young, alias Tatbam, alias Mansfield, was, to-day, brought before the bench of magis- trates ; Mr Drnmmond, P.M., in the chair. The hearing of the case was not commenced till two o'clock, the ordinary civil business of the court being first disposed of. The court was crowded through out the day, and the greatest interest was evidently felt in the investigation. The prisoner is a dark complexioned, thick-set man, about thirty-six years of age, and of a revolting expression of countenance. He is evidently strong and muscular, and states that he has been employed for some years in various parts of Victoria as a farm laborer and a digger. He admits that he was transported from England to Van Diemen's Land for seven years, having been convicted of burglary. It has also been ascertained that he has been twice convicted of larceny in this colony —...

THE TYPHUS FEVER CASES BY THE GOLDEN EMPIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1865

THE TYPHUS FEVER CASES BY THE GOLDEN EMPIRE. The extent to which the disease of typhus fever, introduced into the colony by the ship Golden   Empire, has spread, and the danger to be appre hended appears rather to have been under estimated than overstated. Below will he found an 'ac- count of the illness and death of another victim who was supposed to have been seized with the disease at Belfast ; and, these cases appearing to 'be on the increase, Dr. Macadam, the health officer, deter mined, on Sunday, 5th. inst., to pay a visit of in-, spection to the Golden Empire. The captain in formed him that the disease did not make its ap pearance until the vessel was in latitude 52° on the voyage out, and that it originated among the Ger man section of the passengers, who, in point of cleanliness, were careless in their habits. The disease continued to spread until the vessel's arrival in Hobson's Bay. The captain also stated that the second mate was then being treated for what...

AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 23 February 1865

AMUSEMENTS. The conquering match at bowls, English v. Scotch, came off on 4th inst. The weather was beautiful and the green in splendid condition. Be sides tho thirty-two players engaged in the keen contest, two rinks of late arrivals were engaged during the afternoon. After two hours' play, the English side was declared triumphant by a ma jority or four points — English 86, Scotch 82 points, making a majority of five points in favor of the English, in the total of three matches. Some of tho Scotch players attribute their defeat, in this case, to the absence of three of their good men, and the consequent necessity of enlisting some fresh, recruits. In riuk No. 1, the contest was pretty even, the English commander, Mr Jupp, standing at the close 20 to 21 for Mr G-emmell, the Scotch captain. In rink No. 2, the Englisb, commanded by Mr:!F.' Banks, obtained 34 points against the Scotch, commanded by Mr G. YouDg, who scored 13 points. The force of English skill brought to bear against th...

IMPORTANT FROM TAURANGA. THE HiU, HIGH PRIEST OF THE PAI MARIRES, WITH FIFTY-SIX ? REBELS TAKEN PRISONERS. These rebel natives were taken prisoners by the Ngaitehourangi and others, at the Rotoiti, at the instigation of Colonel Greer, C.B., commanding this district, whose exertions deserve the highest praise, in being the means of having such a mob of rebels and fanatics secured while on their way to join and influence or incite the. disaffected natives of the Southern districts to join them in their wicked and false religion. Their capture was effected in the following manner : — Colonel Greer having received information that these rebels had, by some means, been permitted to pass through the dist.-ict of Maketu unmolested, felt very indignant tba' sufficient warning had not been given to Major Xirby,' who commands the fort at Maketu, till it was too late for him to impede their progress ; and upon receipt of this information he despatched Mr Rice, the Government interpreter at thi...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 18 March 1865

NEW ZEALAND. Great Fire in Auckland. — Estimated Loss, £30,000. — The New Zealander of the 15th ultimo reports as follows : — At a quarter-past two o'clock this morning, one of those calamitous fires for which Auckland is gradually becoming celebrated broke out. So far as is now known, it originated in a wooden building known as the Victoria Hotel, which extends from Fort street into Shortland street.. In less than forty minutes from the time the fire was discovered, there were five buildings wholly destroyed, and a sixth was in a blaze, namely, the large three-story hotel of Messrs S. P. James and Co., now in course of erection, and it was for some time hoped that it wonld have checked the Hames. Prom sheer heedlessness, no means were taken to guard against the fire spreading beyond James's building, and it was, therefore, not long before it did spread to the wooden building known as Bedford House. The fire then xapidly cleared its way to Canning, the confec tioner's shop, and here...

A STRANGE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 18 March 1865

A STRANGE STORY. The following strange and eventful story, if not vouched for by persons of the highest respectability, would be deemed more a tale of romance than a simple narrative of facts which have recently oc curred in the life of one of our fellow colonists, whose fate might be our own. About twelve years and a half ago, a young man, who had been liberally educated and respectably brought up, determined on pushing his fortune in this colony, and accord ingly emigrated. For some years after his arrival little was heard of him by our informant, a fellow passenger, until about four months ago, whon be raintroduced himself, and asked leave to make use of his friend's address so as to havo his letters from Melbourne forwarded safely. The request was readily granted. Five days afterwards the yonng man again called, and inquired if there were any letters. Ho was told thero would bo no mail until the Friday. Tho young man expressed his disappointment, and said he hardly knew how he w...

RESULTS OF THE HARVEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 18 March 1865

KESULTS OP THE HARVEST. It is to early at present for the Government agri cultural statistics to make tbeir appenrance. But after the close of a harvest public curiosity is al ways alive to know what the general result of that harvest has been. This cariosity ennnot be satis fied with exactitude, all that can bo done is to make an approximation. With regard to Victoria, we have already given the estimate made by the Mel bourne Age. Considerable pains scein to have been taken to secure the information on which this estimate ib based, and we know no reason for de preciating its acenracy. According to our contem porary, the Victorian wheat harvest is scarcely up to half the average of the production prior to Hie appearance of rust. The heavy losses incurred in the previous year have deterred furniers from trusting again too much to wheat, and the crops that have been reaped have Buffered to some extent from a reappearance of the scourge. This -visitation has been a serious drawback to ...

THE MELBOURNE FISH MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 18 March 1865

THE MELBOURNE FISH MARKET. The Fish' Market, now in course of erection at the corner of Flinders and Swanston streets, a view of which, ns completed, forms the subject of the accom panying sketch, is one of the most important municipal works undertaken in the city for some time. There has hitherto been little or no accommodation for- the sale of fish, and the hawking of the scaly delicacies through the streets, besides being unproductive of corporation duties, is, in some seasons of the year, inimical to the public health. Melbourne is well supplied with fish from Hobson's Bay and neighboring fishing grounds ; and there is little doubt thnt the market will ever be ill furnished or badly nttended. The building will be a very substantial structure. Its extent is 9!) feet by' 80 feet, and it occupies the whole area of available ground. The foundations and cellars are of bluestone, and tho upper portion of the building in of white and red bricks. The structure is 43 feet high from the g...
