MECHANICS' INSTITUTE/ GEELONG. The'building.now- coinpletjed for a Mechanics' institute at Goelong, is a credit to that town, and characteristic of the energy of its inhabitants. ' To those who are less acquainted with the western district of tho colony, it may not bo \ superfluous to point oat that Goelong, without oooupying tho position of a metropolitan city, Or being endowed with mineral wealth, has al ways turned tp good aooonnt its natural advan tages.

THE MONTH. The sab j Got which above all others occupies the publics mind is the horrible deed committed the other day at Sydney. Incredible as it inay seem, 'it is true that an attempt has bben mado on the life of H.R.H. the Duke of 'Euiiiburgli ; and though the attempt happily failed, it bus caused feelings of grief and indignation; which, after spreading throughout the Australian co lonies'; will travol all ovor the civilised world. The'Priribo attended tllo Sailors' Home picnic, at Clontilrf, near Sydnoy, New South Wales, on; the 12th lust., and after luncheon was -walking with the Countess of Bolmore and Sir William Manning, when a man stole behind him, and, at the distance of two paces, dis charged i a pistol-shot into his' body. ,The Prince immediately foil, exclaiming; ' Good God I my back is broken.'

CHINESE OOSTER,MONG E . -R.— see page 18. CHINESE GOSTEEMONGEB^ . The Chinese are very ? numerous . in Victoria. The greater part dl them- are engaged in mining, though . . many of them devote their ener gies to various useful and profitable sources of employment. In market gardening they excel many of their more formidable European competitors. Troops of Chinamen, bearing baskets of fresh green ana delicious looking vegetables, are to be seen in every town of the. colony. The miners on the gold-fields derive their principal supply of green' staff from the' Chinese, whose , gardens are often situated amid the. - old shafts and abandoned claims. Others : of the race pursue a lucrative coll ing as pedlars, the colonists rarely refusing to buy some cheap article or other from ',' Poor John.'

THE LATE SIB DOMINIC DALY. [S. A. ADVERTISES, FEB. 24.1 , The last solemn ritos are over. Oar good old Governor, esteemed by all, and loved by not a few, has been gathered to his fathers. Like those amongst whom he lived,, his bones will lie in this far-off land, and this, we believe, is aa , he would have wished it to be. Sir Dominio Daly, when he game here as the representative of her Majesty, be came at heart a South Austra lian. His govern ment was a labor of love. He re speoted the people over whom he ruled as chief , and they respeoted him. He was too old to form' new ties, and we believe it is no seofet that Sir Dominio has for years had the impression that he would end hia. days in South Australia. It ia hard to part with him, even when: his work is over and his remains . continue with us; but it would have been harder to see the, good old man— so ripe in wisdom, so rich in expert ence, so gentle in spirit, , and so prudent in counsel, super seded by a stranger, and leaving ...

DEMEANOR OF THE PRINCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 23 March 1868

DEMEANOR OF THE PHTNCE. ' Tho effect of this dastardly attempt at assas sinating the Prince amongst tho immense num ber of persons congregated at Clontarf , may be more easily imagined than described. ? A large number of ladios fainted, others were seized with hysterics, and. the whole multitude was convulsed. Suddenly a joyous throng had been converted into a mass of excited people, in whose breasts sympathy for the royal suf ferer, and indignation for his murderous assailant, alternately prevailed; while pallid faces' and tearful eyes told- pf.-the deep anxiety that was felt ;'ii}; reference to the extent of the injuries which : his' 'Royal Highnoss had sustained. People crowded by. hundreds around tho tent in which, the .suf ferer lay, until they woro informed that they must keep back in order to allpw free ventila tion.

CHARGE OF MURDER AT CASTLEMAINE [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 23 March 1868

CHARGE OF MURDER AT CASTLEMAINE The discovery of the death of Mrs. Atkinson,   the wife of the recently elected member of the Castlemaine Mining Board, under circumstances   inducing the belief that she met with foul     play, is (says the Daily News) creating very considerable excitement in Castlemaine. It seems that after Mr. Atkinson's election on the 29th ult., he remained with several of his   friends drinking until a late hour, when he     went home, not quite sober. Upon reaching     there, his wife was absent. It is alleged that she had gone to look for him. He left the house and met her returning to it. There was       mutual recrimination, and it is alleged that blows were given, and that Mrs Atkinson was   dragged home by her husband. The police, from certain informtion they had received,   &a...

SEIZURE OF THE ASSASSIN.   While this painful examination was in pro gress another scenp, which . almost defies do soription, was going on in another part of the ground. No soonor had Mr Vial grasped the arms of the man who had fired the shots, than Mr Benjamin Mortimer (an American gentle- man), Mr Whiting (of the firm of Drynan and Whiting), A. L. Jackson, and other gentlemen seized him ; and had it not been for the closing in around them of the police and other persons, they would speedily have placed him beyond the reach of the law courts. The people shouted "Lynch him," "Hang him," "String him       up," and so on, and there was a general rush to get at him. The police, headed by Superin-   tehdent Orridge, got hold of the assassin,   and they had the greatest difficulty in pre- venting, the infuriated people tearing him   limb from limb. In this the police were ably assisted by the Chief...
