Selections i took place at Melbourne, Geelong, Hamilton, Belfast, Camperdown, Ararat and Echuca. At the two first-named places there was comparatively little excitement, :as most of the land available was of an inferior quality. A large number of persons, however, congregated at' Hamilton and Camperdown, as in these dif tricta the areas thrown open contained first-class land. The exoitemon of a land sale is proverbial, and was increased by rumors of organised attempts at evasion. Some thousands, we are told, have a...

STORM AT WELLINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 24 June 1865

STORM AT WELLINGTON. The Advertiser^ gives the following account of a destructive atorra by whioh Wellington has lately been' visited : — A most violent storm, ac companied at intervals with a perfect deluge of rain, hail and sleet, thunder and lightning, raged in Wellington and showed little signs of abate ment. It was truly one of the roughest nights we remember to have experienced in this colony, and it is only wonderful that more casualties have not ooourred. The splendid holding ground in the harbor saved the shipping from disaster, and even at the height of the hurricane hardly a vessel moved a yard from her moorings, and no danger in this matter was to be apprehended. , On shore, however, matters assumed a different aspect, and some considerable damage has been sustained by both roads and bridges. Along the Hutt-road several, slips havo taken place, and the road on this account is rendered temporarily impassable for drays, but horsemen experience little difficulty in travelli...
