GREAT CONFLAGRATION IN ELIZABETH-STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 13 June 1868

GREAT CONFLAGRATION IN ELIZABETH-STREET. About, ten o'clock on the night of the 15th nit., a. fire .broke out at the Albion saw-mills and timber .yard, awned by Halstead and Kerr, corner of Elizabeth and A'Beokett streets. The fire bri gades were qaiokly on the spot, but for several hoars their efforts to sub due the flames were perfeotly futile. The two-story row of iron buildings adjoining the timber yard in Elizabeth-street were completely gutted by the flames, and the firemen with great dif&onlty suooeeded in saving the Rose of Molbourno Hotel and the ex tensive stores on the opposite side of A'Beokett street. The amount of damage was not so great as expeoted, owing to the persevering efforts of the firemen to confine it within its original limits. Although it continued to smoulder for several hours on Saturday, it was effeo taally extinguished by nine o'olook. The 'Melbourne brigade had seven jets, and the suburban brigades- five jets of water, playing on the fire at on...

iu:- ? ' :,'? YAlA.. ^. , ? , ? . . ^= , MOUNTAIN SOENEEY INii.OHE-KE ANG. ,. The maritime .provincb of Che-KoanR is tho rival of the greater prpvipoe of Keang-nan in. the naannfactnro of silk, and the extent of its plantations of the young mulberry trees, which, are subjeoted to constant lopping and renewal, as the most certain, method of removing the eilk spun, by the jinseot' weavers; who feed on the leaves of tlio plant. By this system a very flue silk is produced, as the trees bear a leaf tender, in proportion to their youth, and the tondercst foliage yields the finest-silk. The inferior-quality of silk prepared on the Con tinent of Europe and in some countries of the East is accounted for by 'the ne glect of this practice. Tho prinoipal city ot Che-Keang is Hang-chow, which stands close to the famous Lake Sy-hoo. This magnificent sheet of water is six miles in cir oamferenoe, quito limpid, and considerably overspread with the beautiful waterlily. .It is; frequently roferred to...

THE MONTH. In onr lost issue we announced the forma tion of .the Sladen Ministry. We have now to state that, on the Boven newMinisters appeal? ing to their constituents for' re-election, ^Bve only were returned. Three out of the five were returned without any contest at all, viz. —Mr Sladen, to his seat in the Oounoil ; and Messrs Follows and Langton to the Assembly. The four contested seats were, Villiers and Heytesbnry, where the new Ministers, Messrs M'Donnell and Bayles, were opposed by Mr Cook ; the Ovens district, where Mr Kerferd was opposed by Mr Graham Berry; Ballarat West, where Mr Gillies had to do battle with Mr Jones ; and, 'finally, Sonth Bourke, where Mr O'Grady met Mr Crews. In the two latter, which are large and impor tant constituencies, the contest was keen, and the defeat of Ministers in both by decisive ma jjorities was felt to -be a severe and significant .blow. Thus emerging from tho electoral contest 'in a Badly crippled condition, the Ministry had to meet Pa...

TRIP OF THE' SOUTHLAND TO THE 'WRECK OF THE GENERAL GRANT. ' [ny ONE OF THE PABTY.] * It is now nearly four months since I engaged myself in oh enterprise from whioh I looked for a return in a great deal of excitement, and possibly an adequate pecuniary recompense. When the news first reaohed Viotoria of the melancholy loss of the ship General Grant,- in a cave on the dreary iron-bound shores of the Auckland Islands, where I fear many a good ship has beaten herself despairingly to death, the first and general feeling was one of profound sympathy for those poor souls' who had met their fate so nobly, and for the widows and orphans who mourned their loss. After a while the commercial spirit began to set itself to ponder whether it was not possible to snatch from the greedy sea at least some portion of its spoil ; and whether the £20,000 worth of specie the Yankee clipper carried in her strong room could not be restored to the world and circulation by means of that most useful inventio...
