Ladvektisement.J , .': . ?.. ; . ?- The Philosophkk's Stone.- -The imaginary 'Philo- sopher's Stone,' -which was suppossed to turn all .things into gold, and consequently to bo the source of .untold weulth to its possessor, was eagerly sought after by] the ancients, as the grand desideratum of all their earthly aspirations. ' As an unlimited producer of gold, it 'was considered of far greater value than gold itself, and any or all other limited amounts of wealth of whatso ever Itind. It was the theme of their' thoughts and words by day, and the director of thsir fairy visions by night, and its fancied . possession the ' ultima thulo ' of all their earthly aspirations. . ' ?? ? .... But there is a better and. a greater earthly good than the ' Philosopher's Stone,' or.all the woalth.it. has been supposed to bestow! Gold, riches, position or even the highest honors are of very littlo use without health, which alone gives them ' any real value,' or makes life itself a blessing to its po...

THE YARRA—ABOVE STUDLEY PARK—SEE PAGE 7. THE YARRA, NEAR STUDLEY PARK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 18 March 1865

THE Y A B R A— A BOVE STUDLEY PAR K— see page 7. THE YARRA, NEAR STUDLEY PARK. In the annexed sketch our artist has selected, for pictorial representation, one of the many wildly ro mantic bits of river scenery peculiar to Australia, and which are nowhere found more beautiful than in the neighborhood of Studley Park — a thickly timbered domain, presenting at every turn some new variety of form, either of hill or dale, brake or fell, eminently picturesque in their surroundings, and worthy the canvas of the greatest jtaysogistc, — through which the ' Yarra forces its winding course in a hundred devious turnings. On festal days this locality is by right the iesort, pur c.c cellencc, of pic-nic parties ; and, on these occasions, the bright margin of the flowing stream has attractions other than those, botanical and floricultural native to the place. The disciples of Isaak AVnlton, too, here have trysting place. The members .of the finny tribe chiefly relied on for sport are herring and ...

VIEW OF NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 18 March 1865

VIEW OF NEWCASTLE. Tho city of Nowunatlo, Now Sonth Waloa — of which our engraving in u faithful picture, taken from tho high ground, near tho ImrrnakH, nnd nt the bnok of the town — is situated nt tho mouth of the Hunter Riyoi', on tho oust coast of Austrnlin, nnd nhoiit ninety miles north of Hyilnuy. It lies in tho contra of oNloiisivo nnd very rich coal'fichls, which supply nil the ports of Australia nnd India. It is also the port of the wealthy agricultural, pastoral and mining districts of the Hunter, New England and the Northern Gold fields, and is the southern terminus of the Great Northern Railway, which runs through Maitlnnd and Singleton into the northern parts of New South Wales. The railway was opened in 1857, from New castle to East Maitland, about twenty miles, and has since been extending, year by year, until it now reaches Tanaworth — a distance of about seventy miles. Prior to the opening of the railway, the whole of. the country produce was brought down by bullock ...

THE YARRA—NEAR THE JUNCTION OF THE SALTWATER RIVER—SEE PAGE 7. VIEW OF THE YARRA NEAR ITS JUNCTION WITH THE SALTWATER RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 18 March 1865

THE Y A BRA-NEAR THE JUNCTION OF THE SALTWATER R I V E B-sEE page 7. VIEW OF THE YARRA NEAR ITS JUNCTION WITH THE SALTWATER RIVER. Tho view of the Yarra presented in the accompa nying sketch is at tho junction of this stream with tho Saltwater River, which it joins near the borough of Footscray, at a point about two miles distant from Hobson's Bay. ' The Saltwater River is here a broad sheet of water, of far greater expanse than tho Yarra ; and a reach of several miles from the junc tion, pursuing au even course in almost a straight line, is used for the purposes of the Mel bourne regatta, an aquatic exhibition which annually attracts some thousands of people to the river's banks. On these occasions this stretch of water boasts quite a flotilla of small craft, and the scene is almost as ani mated si one as that presented by the Thnmes .at Putney on a race day. This position of the Saltwater, being in close proximity to tho Bay, and being capable of carrying ships of large draught, o...

SCENE AT AN OUT-STATION.—ATTACK BY THE NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 18 March 1865

SCENE AT AN OUT-STATION.— ATTACK BY THE NATIVES. The life of a squatter in tho far interior of tho Australian bush is not all pleasure, nor yet all profit. Sheep-farming is, no donbt, an almost sure method of becoming wealthy, but there are numerous drawbacks to it as to every other trade, profession and culling in the world. Bush fires sometime.-! destroy whole flocks of sheep, attacks of scab and other diseases to which they are subject render them comparatively valueless, except for boiling-down purposes. Continued droughts or sudden floods carry them off in thousands, tho ravages of the dingo and the carelessness or malice of shepherds thin their ranks, and sometimes tho wily and treacherous hordes of aboriginal savages, driven from their hunting grounds, aud treated, it must be acknowledged, in many instances, in a shameful and inhuman manner, retaliate by slaughtering large numbers of sheep, murdering the shep herds and committing their hats to tho flames. Our engraving repres...

Tin: papers say Kged forty-iiiue, but his appearance would denote that he was much older. Mr Nicholson was a most ex emplary citizen, and in his day has doun the colony much sorvico. He is an instance of what a mau may accomplish by sobriety, persevering industry and average ability ; for he was prosperous before the gold-fields, and, so far back us 1818, was a civic councillor, mid, two years later, Mayor of Mel bourne. By the way, he occupied tho mayoral chair in tho most eventful year of the history of Victoria— that of tho «old discovery. He whs a member oE the first Legislative Council, and he assisted materially in framing the Constitution Act. Originally opposed to the ballot, he afterwards changed his views, and moved that the Electoral Act — which was to accompany the Constitution Act — should provide for electors recording their votes by secret ballot.

MOUNT M'MILLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 18 March 1865

MOUNT M'MILLAN. Our. full-page sketch represents one of tho many Alpinc'viows in which Gipps Land abounds. The highest peak, in the centre of the view, is Mount Bl'Millan, so named after Mr Angus M'Millau, the discoverer and explorer of the district. The lower peak, to the right, is called Mount Valentin. The ranges all round these mountains are magni ficently timbered and rich in quartz reefs. At -the bottom of the valley is the Mitchell River, which takes its name from Sir Thos. Mitchell, the celebrated Australian traveller. This river flows into tho Gipps LandLakes, and could be made navigable from the Lakes upwards to a distance of about twelve miles. It abounds iu fish, and is very pcturcsftu^ throughout the whole of its course. The time ro£-i escnted by the artist is' early morning, ' and the place from- which the view is taken is on the old road {.from the Dargo Valley to tho Crooked River.

EXTRAORDINARY ACTION FOR MAINTENANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 18 March 1865

EXTRAORDINARY ACTION FOR MAIN TENANCE. The case Grave v. Moon, which has for some time past been eagerly looked forward to as likely to be productive of disclosures of a startling and not very creditable nature, came on for hearing in the county court on Friday, 24th ult. The fact of being ' a lady in the case' — one who has held a prominent position in metropolitan musical gatherings — was, combined with other at tendant circumstances, sufficient to insure a crowded court. This was an action in which Mr William George Grave, a trustee under a deed of separation, sued the defendant, Mr Augustus Graham Moon, for the recovery of £49 19s, being arrears of pay ments due to him, as maintenance to Mrs Eliza Octavin Moon, otherwise Miss Octavia Hamilton, his wife. The circumstances of the case were briefly stated by Mr Newton, who appeared for the plaintiff, from which it appears that the defendant, who is a clerk in a Government office, some years ago married a lady known as Miss Octavia ...

DARING OUTRAGE AT MAJORCA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 18 March 1865

DARING OUTRAGE AT MAJORCA. A daring act of burglary and attempt to murder was made yesterday- morning, at Majorca. It appears that on Tuesday evening a fellow rode up^ to Mr O'Farrell's store, Talbot street, and inquired where Mrs O'Donoghue resided and Dr. Southee, the fellow, and tho . circumstance caused no further \ remark, yesterday' morning, Mr Williams, the \ chemist, got up before daylight, and left for Fiery I Creek. Shortly after his departure- Dr Southee ,. who resides in tho same house was uwoke by bear ing tho front door opened, and some person walking about in Mr Williains's room, but, thinking it was Mr Williams, took no notico of it. In a few minutes his own bedroom was opened, and tho doctor observed the figure of a man crouching down. Waiting for a second or two, Dr. Southeu jumped out of bed, and tho intruder made a bolt of it, but, not being acquainted with tho premises, raD , behind tho counter instead of the door.

FATAL MINING ACCIDENT AT BENDIGO. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 18 March 1865

FATAL MINING ACCIDENT AT BENDIGO. An accident occurred on Friday in the Indepen dent Company's claim, Pottery Flat, by which two men have lost their lives, and a third narrowly escaped a similar fate. It appears that tho threo men were engaged timbering a wide excavation in a drive a hundred feet from tho shaft, which is over that in depth, when the roof gave way and fell, timber and all, on two of the men ; tho third, some how, was driven back from the falling mass into the drive towards the shaft, and managed to get out without much injury, and gavo the alarm. This was about eight o'clock in the morning. Speedily a ,large number of miners from the surrounding claims went down into the drive, and worked in relays, with the utmost energy, to reach the en tombed men, but it was at the imminent risk of their own lives, for as fast as they shovelled the sand away it kept running down in a stream from the top strata, till a large hole, some twenty feet high, had been formed.

FEMALE BUSHRANGERS. The Goulburn Herald of the 22nd ult. reports the hearing of the charge against the three women accused of aiding Gilbert, Hall and Dunn, the bushrangers to burn the premises of a storekeeper named Morriss, on tho 24th December last. Two of the prisoners were committed for trial, the other was discharged. The evidence of the prosecutor affords an extraordinary picture of life over the border. Edward Morriss stated : I have at present no oc cupation. I was a storekeeper at Binda on the 26th December last. The store was built of slabs, and had a bark roof. I knew the three prisoners well before this for the last eight or nine years. I was formerly in the police stationed at the Binda, in the neighborhood of which place the prisoners reside. One of the prisoners was servant to me for nearly a year, Ellen Monks. There was a ball at Binda, at Hall's public house, on the 26th December. I was taken there. I had not been to the house for some weeks before. About eight o'c...

BOAT RACING ON THE YABRA. The sculling match between watermen for the .championship of the Upper Yarra came off oh Sa turday afternoon last. The weather being ? fine there., was a large assemblage of spectators' at tho. foot of the Punt road — tho vicinity of the winning. poiht^-and the river was quite alive with boats. The match consisted of three heats, for which there were six entries ; and the course was from the Richmond Bridge down to Turnbull's Point— a bend in the river between the Punt road and the Botanic Gardens bridge — making a distance of about a mile and a half. In the first heat the com petitors were — Tom Bryant (Alhambra), J. Brown (Little, Star) and Harry Lawrence (Eve). Lawrence won the toss and chose the' north side, by which he had. the advantage, and Bryant got the south side with the benefit of the stream. Brown, of course, had the middle. An excellent start having been effected, under the direction of Mr Whitehead, the boats went away well together. Before r...

CHINESE GARDENING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 18 March 1865

CHINESE GARDENING. The class of Chinamen most useful to their Enro -ean neighbors, next to the miners, who aro adding the wealth of the country, are the gardeners. There are few townships in the colony the inhabi tants of: which are not mainly dependent on the Chinese for a constant and regular supply of frosh 'vegetables of the very finest quality. Such, at least, may be said to be the case on the gold-fields. Any idea of competing with the Chinese among our gold-fields townships, in the production and sale of -vegetables, appears to be pretty generally aban doned ; and, although farmers will bring cabbages, pumpkins, and such like to the weekly markets, the Chinamen maybe seen moving from door to door, by seven or eight o'clock - every morning, laden with fresh green esculents. At all seasons, and in every description of weather, the Chinese gardener has got some kind of vegetable for sale. Neither heat nor cold, droughtnor rain, affects this regular supply. There are a great many...
