TEA GARDENS OF SHANGHAI. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 June 1868

TEA GARDENS OF SHANGHAI. Shanghai is one of the treaty ports, and is enclosed by a high thick wall, about five miles in cirouit, with five or six gates. The shops and warehouses are numerous, and the bustle of trade and commerce is great. On pene trating into the interior, however, activity dis appears, and large gardens surround the houses. One of the pleasure tea-gardens is depicted in the view on page 12. Shanghai is conneoted by water communication with one third of China.. Its population is nearly 300,000. Within the last five or six years it has made rapid strides towards real im portance, such as it has now attained. It ha-i completely thrown Hong Kong; into the shade, and is leaving the other; Chinese' ports far behind. Not many - years since the city could boast of no roads, and passengers bad to wade knee-deep in mud, with long boots like those worn by diggers. Now there are creditable thoroughfares, brilliantly lighted with gas ; the city is well drained, and an effioient...

BADGER'S CREEK, [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 June 1868

BADGER'S CREEK. Or the Badger Creek, as it is most frequently named, rises in Mount Juliet and flows west ward into the Upper Yarra. The creek is a clear and rapid stream, running over a gravelly bed for a considerable part of its coarse, ana having an average width of about twenty feet. The banks are thickly wooded, and conspiou onB among the overshadowing foliage is the ' graceful fern-troo. To the lover oi_ sport it affords capital fishing, and to the artist, many a scene of beanty and enchantment. The deep brown pools, the gurgling of the water over the stones in the bed, the eddies caused by projecting moss-covered trunks of trees, and the play of light and shade through the leafy thioket along tho banks, remind one more of an English stream than any other water course we have seen in tho colony. The scene se lected for illustration, is about a mile or so from the Aboriginal Station at Coranderrk, and about the same distance from the spot where a considerable quantity of salmon...

AT AN OYSTER STALL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 June 1868

AT AN OYSTER STALL. [BY A STB0LI.ER.] Going np Bourke-street the other evening, ahout eight or nine o'clock, I .observed an oysterman at his stall, busily taking the roofs off oysters' houses, and turning oat the tenants as though he were their landlord, and they were in arrears for rent. The oysterman had nothing to say but ' Oysters sixpence a dish. Here y'are, sir ; all alive ;' so, like a barrister with only one argument, he said it very often. The man was some two or three and thirty years of age, of medium height, olean-shaved, and fat. He wore only one ooat, and that was of thin tweed ; but, judging by the bulgy, un symmetrical, stuffed-btooking appearance of the sleeves, his shirts must have been a per fect outfit, or made of exceptionally thick flannel. An apron of blue serge protected his unmentionables — (the proper name I believe) — from the defilements of his business. His general appearance was that of a hardy-bodied, softy-minded man. I, being an invalid, and baying h...
