THE NEW MERRI GREEK BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 June 1868

THE NEW MERRI CREEK BRIDGE. The new bridge over the Merri Creek, on   the Heidelberg-road, was formally opened for   traffic on the 6th inst., by Mr Sutherland, chair- man of the Heidelberg Road Board. The ob- struction to the approaches having been re moved shortly after noon, Mr Sutherland broke a bottle of wine over the parapet and christened the bridge the Merri Creek   Bridge. A few appropriate remarks were made, and the company then adjourned to the Alphingstone Hotel, where a cold collation was provided by the liberality of the engineer, Mr Francis. The whole affair passed off very satisfactorily, the usual loyal toasts being drunk, with enthusiasm, with the exception of that of the "Governor," which   was drunk in solemn silence. The new bridge is a great improvement on the old and rotten one, and reflects great credit upon the con- tractors, Messrs. Reid, Stewart and Duguid. The cost of it amounts to nearly £9000, the whol...

THE ALEXANDRA GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 June 1868

THE ALEXANDRA GOLD-FIELDS. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] The richness of the quartz reefs at Alexan dra, and the daily discoveries of new veins, have naturally drawn a considerable amount of attention amongst city men and speculators lately, and a short sketch of the place cannot fail in being interesting. Twenty months ago, little or nothing was known of the locality fur ther than that the neighborhood was a very fine sheep run, the property of Mr M'Kenzie. Although various parties had pros pected the district, few of them   were fortunate enough to hit upon   auriferous spots. The difficulties these men had to contend with were further increased by the squatters, who refused to supply them with rations, and there being no stores within many miles, they were often literally starved out. The squatter naturally enough feared, in the event of payable gold being found, the utter destruction of his run; and this has really been the case. When I first visited Alexandr...

JUNCTION OF THE MANUHURAKIA WITH THE MOLYNEUX RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 11 July 1868

JUNCTION 0P THE MANUHURAKIA WITH THE MOLYNKUX RIVER. This characteristic pieco ef New Zealand scenery is from one of a series of photographs, ' executed by order of the Otago Government, to illustrate the features of the province. The Manuhnrakia waters the valley lying between the DnnBtan and the Raggodrangos, a fine pas toral distriot, bnt which has been reoontly well: ransacked for gold,, not, however, with the success which has . attended the search at Taapeka on the south, or the Dans tan on the north. It falls into the Clutha or Molyneux, on the east bank, about eight miles below Clyde, the principal township of the Dunstan diggings. In honor of the Princess of Wales, the local authorities have reserved a site for a township, which they . name Alexandra, at the ferk of the two rivers, with which no. -great progress seems to have been made. But as ' population increases and ?agriculture extends, a great trade must open up in these wild regions, as ? the varieties of soil whioh ...

CALIFORNIAN BREADSTUFFS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 11 July 1868

CALIFORNIAN BREADSTUFFS. [FBOM' THE B. A., BEOI8TBR, JUNE 26TH.] We sincerely pity those who have to take any practical interest in Californian market reports. They are bo thoroughly consistent in their inconsistency, so regular in contradicting each other, and so utterly regardless of what their readers may think of 'them, 'that . ihey ought to be treated simply as literary curiosi ties. A month ugo wo received San Francisco advices via Panama to the 10th March, wMeh represented the local market as beiug iu the last stage of tightness. Tho stocks of wheat and flour had declined to a minimum, quota tions were advancing, and it was expected that little business would bo done prior to the -3e- livery of the new crop. Similar intelligence from Valparaiso added tp the consequent im probability of our receiving much relief during the present season from Pacific shipments, Both in Adolaido nud Melbourne prices showed a hardening tendency, and holders of breadBtuffd thought that their long...
