VISIT TO A BURNING MOUNTAIN. (FROM THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 22 October 1864
VISIT TO A BURNING MOUNTAIN. (no* TBS STDKBT HOREISO HERALD.) A brief account of this natural curiosity ; may not, perhaps, be unacceptable to our ! readers, the majority of whom are probably 1 not aware of the existence of snch a phe nomenon in the Australian continent. The mountain is situated about twelve miles from tbc pretty and growing little township ■ of Murrnnundi, the scenery around which is 1 perhaps as picturesque as any to be fonnd in Australia, and is very similar in appearance to some parts of Italy. The town is com pletely surrounded with mountains, and, viewed from any of these etpinepces, the beautiful green valley beneath—through which winch, sparkling, the small rivulet of the Page—and the pretty little village, nestling among the hills, together form a picture that many a poet and painter might revel in. Our present business, however, is with the mountain, and one fine morning we started, in company with a friend, for the Battling Mountain Inn, which is about tw...

The Australasian. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 22 October 1864
ItyrAitstralmn. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1804. That then is a large amount of des titution in Melbourne and the suburban municipalities is not to be denied. Those, however, who attribute it to the absence of protection to local industries labour under a very considerable and serious mistake. Tlic real causes of the distress which exists are to a large extent attri butable to tlie peculiar circumstances which have marked the progress of the oolony, and it may be said at once, and without reservation, that they are not reachable by legislation. The time will come, no doubt, if it has not already arrived, when those causes will cease ; and we Bhall be left to deal with the poverty which is to be found in our social system, without much fear that it will extend further, or become very much more burdensome. One main cause has been the un suitability of many of the immigrants who have sought the colony from the mother country. No one who has had experience of life in Australia has made the v...

QUEENSLAND AS IT IS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 22 October 1864
QUEENSLAND AS IT IS. Tli8 following description of Queensland is extracted from a letter, written by Mr. J. Mackenzie Shaw, Acting Registrar of the Supreme Court, Brisbane, to the Northern 1Yhig, a Belfast paper. Mr. Shaw was for merly a barrister at Belfast, Ireland, and the letter appeared in tbo columns of the Northern I Yhig on the 28th of Jane last. Writing, of tbe natural feature* of the country, Mr. Shaw says:— Much of tbe low-lying alluvial land along tbe banks ot the riven and creeks (as the branches of tbe rivers are here called) is wonderfully fertile; in many parts it is densely overgrown with the rank, luxuriant, semi-tropical vegetation called here "scrub," where mighty trees tower high above the thick undergrowth of flowering and other shrubs; climbing vines of many kinds, their hums often entwined like tbe strands of a rope, reaching from the ground to the lower branches of the nearest tree, round wbicb they twine, commingling its foliage with their own, their wild l...
