ANOTHER NEW INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 23 May 1868

ANOTHER NEW INDUSTRY. The manufaoturo of the American broom, a very useful and therefore indis pensable domestio article, is now engaging the attention of several enterBrisins colonists. That such an industry, like others introduced in Victoria sinoe the inauguration of the existing tariff, will add to the prosperity of the colony is evident from the fact that in the manufac ture of nearly 3,000,000 brooms sont here yearly from America, over 500 men and boyB will .find perman ent employment and good wages. It is fortunate that to success fully Iciunoh this undertaking a largo amount of capital is not necessary ; and that the article in its raw stato can be disposed of to advantage in various ways. It was with the in tention of commencing to nianu facturo the American broom that Messrs Robert S. Paterson and Stout, who have been 'engaged for many years in the trade in America, de termined, about two years ago, to .import the seed and grow the plant. Accordingly, a piece of land, abou...

GRANITE BOULDERS AT THE BLACK HILLS, NEAR KYNETON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 23 May 1868

GRANITE BOULDERS AT THE BLACK HILLS, NEAR KYNETON. The looality is situated about a mile to the right of the M'lvor road, turning off at a point about eight miles distant from Kyneton. A visit will well repay the geological student, or the lover of the beautiful in nature. For a distance of many hundred yards the sides of the range are covered with enormous masses of granite, here scattered about in the wildest profusion, and there piled one on another like the fabled' handiwork of the Titans. The weight of many of the detached blocks may be estimated by thousands of tons ; but they are undergoing rapid disintegration from atmospheric in fluences. Owing to the romantic character of the scenery, the locality is a very favorite re Borfc of excursionists and picnio parties from Kyneton and its neighborhood. Good water is obtainable in abundance from a creek at the foot of the range, and it would be difficult in deed to seleot a more thoroughly eligible spot for a day's enjoyment. Our e...

. MOUNT BULLER Ia certainly the prominent fea ture amongst the grand Alpine ?oenery by which Mansfield is sur rounded. It was discovered by Sir Thomas Mitohell during his memor able expedition, more than thirty years ago, when the first exploration of the creator uart of the Victorian territory was accomplished. On obtaining a distant glimpse of this snow-capped mountain, the groat Australian explorer bestowed uponit tbe honored name of .a man who, in the British Parliament, was long a friend and champion of the colonies.
