SOMERSET. NEW SOUTH WALES.   Somerset township is one of those thriving settlements which of late years have sprung up   so generally on the Australian coast line.     Almost every inlet and bay on the New South   Wales coast has its settlement, to which nu-   merous craft of small or large tonnage ply for     purposes of trade.' The staple products of   these embryo towns are eggs, butter, cheese, and such like commodities.     ...T O W N S H I P O F S O M E R S E T , N E W S O U T H W A L E S.-See page 11.

MOUNTAIN SCENERY IN CHE-KEANG. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 June 1868

MOUNTAIN SCENERY IN OHE-KEANG. .The maritime province of Che-Keang is the rival of the greater province of Keang-nan in the manufacture of silk, and. the extent of its plantations of the young mulberry trees, whioh are subjected to constant lopping and renewal, as the most certain method of removing the silk spun by the insect weavers who feed on the leaves of the plant. By this system a very fine silk is produced, as the trees bear a leaf tender in proportion to their youth, and the tenderest foliage yields the finest silk. Tho : inferior quality of silk prepared on the Con tinent of Europe and in some countries of the East , is accounted for by the ne gleot of this practice. The principal city of Che-Keang is Hang-chow, j^ch^stands close, to the famous Lake .?Sy:hoo^l.(rTbls' magnificent sheet of water is six miles in cir cumference, quite limpid, and considerably overspread with the beautiful waterlily.'

TRIP OF THE SOUTHLAND TO THE WRECK OF THE GENERAL GRANT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 June 1868

TRIP OF THE SOUTHLAND T0 THE WRECK OF THE GENERAL GRANT. [hy one of the paiut.] It is now nearly four months since I engaged myself in an enterprise from whioh ,1 looked for a return in a great deal of exoitement, and possibly an adequate pecuniary recompense. When the news first roaohed Victoria of tho melanoholy 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 mot their fate so nobly, and for tho 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 JE20,000_ worth of specie the Yankee clipper carried in her strong room could not be restored to the world and circulation by meant) of that most useful invention, ...

ARCHITECTURAL IMPROVEMENTS IN MELBOURNE AND THE SUBURBS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 June 1868

ARCHITECTURAL IMPROVEMENTS IN MELBOURNE AND THE SUBURBS. A rapid increase of buildings of every de- scription simultaneously with the establishment of valuable industries is perhaps one of the best proofs that can be given of the progress of a young country. Nearly all those rude structures which the climate and materials to hand twenty years ago compelled Victorians to adopt, have been superseded by buildings in the erection of which much taste as well as a regard for the comfort and health of their occu- : pants has been displayed. Side by side with   these dwellings have sprung up ecclesiastical   edifices, public buildings, and commodious stores, which, as architectural compositions, pos-     sess considerable merit, and denote very strik- ingly the wealth and industry of an enter-   prising population. A very large majority   of the buildings now in progress, especially   dwelling-houses,...
