DEATH OF MR VINCENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 16 May 1868

DEATH OF MR VINCENT The public, and especially the play-going   portion of it, will hear with extreme regret that the unfortunate accident Mr Charles   Vincent, of, the Theatre Royal met with a few days since terminated fatally, on 10th inst. The suddenness of the event will cause as much   surprise as sorrow . The accident at the time of its occurrence was considered of little mo-   ment, and it was fully expected that a day's rest would enable Mr Vincent to again appear upon the stage. Ten days ago, Mr Vincent was trying to mount his horse barebacked in the yard of his residence at Palmer-street, Fitzroy, when the animal threw him. He   complained of having hurt his back and thumb, and on calling in his medical adviser it was found that the thumb was dislocated. On the   3rd inst., he was attacked with extensive   erysipelas,- which gradually extended from the thumb joint to the shoulder. Hi...

THE YARRA BEND ASYLUM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 16 May 1868

THE YARRA BEND ASYLUM. The Asylum for the Insane at Yarra Bend, about three miles from Melbourne, is the only institution of its kind in the colony of Victoria. It is situated on rather low ground, on the north bank of the Yarra, the tortuous windings of the river nearly surrounding it. The prospect presented to the spectator from the elevation in Studley Park, on the opposite bank of the river, is perhaps the most attrac tive to be found in the neighborhood of the metropolis. The sward is peculiarly verdant for Australian turf, and the wood, whose foliage knows no decay, is beautifully varied by the fantastic windings of the stream, and here and there a patch of agricultural land. Seen in the distance, but from this same stand point, the Asylum below, with its picturesque looking little buildings, at straggling inter vals, presents the appearance of a village seen in the early morning before its little life has begun to show itself. The buildings have been erected from time to time...

THE MITCHELL FALLS ON THE M'IVOR CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 23 May 1868

THE MITCHELL FALLS ON THE M'lVOR CREEK. Amongst the piotureB exhibited in our Na tional Gallery are several by colonial artists, and one of these we have made the subject of an engraving in this number. The artist is Mr Van Der Houten, who has been a resident in the coleny for fifteen years, and has been employed most of the time as a teacher of drawing in many of our principal sohools. Tho scene represented is a waterfall on the M'lvor, — a creek flowing through an extensive' tract' of amjiferous country, which has beep worked since the commencement of gold digging in the colony. The subject is well handled ; the idea of sunset, the light and shade, the transparency of the waterfall being brought out effectually, and the trees being distinctly recognisable by the peculiarities of their foliage. Since its exhibition in the pioture gallery of the Publio 'Library the original pointing has been regarded by the publio as a faithful representation of one of those peculiar but charming la...
