SUMMARY OF EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1892

It was expected that the third and final ses sion of the present Parliament would have closed on the 23rd December, but owing to tlio unlooked for delay on the part of the Legisla tive Council the ceremony of prorogation had to be postponed until the 29th December. The labors of hon. members for the six months' sitting have . eventuated in much . disappointment. The Government were not as fortunate as they expeoted in tbe conduct of business, and many valuable and important measures were included in the list of slaughtered innocent's. It would now appear to have been a mistake to have increased the num ber of Cabinet Ministers in the Upper Chamber, especially aa those appointed there, withand with out portfolios were of conservative proclivities, while the bulk of tho Ministry were supposed to profess Liberal principles. The arrangement had tbe effect of conferring a new privilege, and of inducing obstructive tactios wholly incom patible with the expeditious despatch of busi ness. M...

A NEW HOLIDAY RESORT. SOUTH GIPPSLAND BY THE GREAT SOUTHERN LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1892

A NEW HOLIDAY RESORT. South Gippsland by the Great Southern Line. By J. M That part of Victoria lying between Dande- nong and Port Albert, the main Gippsland line and the Southern Ocean, and known as South Gippsland, has hitherto been little better than a vast tract of almost impassable country, but now that the Great Southern railway has been laid through it, the aspect of the country will be gradually changed and another wide area opened up for, population, capital and industry. The route lies south-east from Dnndenong, passes for some distance near Western Port Bay, then strikes across the rugged mountains, so typical of Gippsland, to Corner Inlet, and thence due east to Palmerston, the present terminus. I left Dandenong by the Korumburra train at 10.20 a.m. No sooner was it started than my   three fellow passengers simultaneously dived into their portmanteaus, each producing a book, in which he became absorbed at once. The train stopped at Lyndhurst, and disgorged t...

THE CALEDONIAN GATHERING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 February 1892

THE CALEDONIAN GATHERING. Among the attractions of Boxing day was the sports meeting of the Caledonian Society of Mel bourneattheExhibitionBnilding, where the meet ing took place for the first time, previous) gather ings having been held on the Melbourne Cricket Ground. This change was a Hfcop in the right direotion, and accounted for the marked sucoess of the meeting in every respoot. The grass plot in the oval and the asphalted running truck gavo scope for every form of athletics represented on the comprehensive programme, while the cover of the Exhibition Building gave facili ties for musical entertainments, for re freshmonts of all kinds, and for sovornl small side shows. In the event of bad weather the building would have been available to carry on competitions, such as dancing and. pipe music, which are a feature of the Highland gatherings, but this condition was as favorable as could be wishod for, and the sports were conducted in the open air both by day and night, tlio prov...

NOVEL THEATRICAL SHOW.—CHINESE PLAYS IN MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 February 1892

NOVEL THEATRICAL SHOW.— CHINESE PLAYS IN MELBOURNE. The Chineso colony in Melbourne have enjoyed the gratification of having presented to thorn dur ing tho holiday season a series of plays written by theirown people andactod by professional actors and actresses, soino of whom oomo straight from tho Flowery Land, whilst others have been long resident in the city. The enterprise has boon undertaken by Messrs. E. Toager and Co. Whether tho hopes of tho management will be realised it is difficult to say, and so far wo understand tho audiences have been mostly composed of Mongolians ; but this much is certain, that anyono in search of something now and cntiroly original will find it in the performances of tho curious company referred to. Thoro is an impression that Chinese plays last for a week or so, and, howover this may be, the management in this instance have had meroy on their patrons, and are playing pieces whioh simply extend over a single night. Indeed, thoy so far oonsult modern...

THE LATE MR. J. G. KNIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 February 1892

THE LATE MR, J. G. KNIGHT. Tho death of Mr. J. G. Knight, Government ? Resident in the Northern Territory, removes from our midst a man of many parts. His life was one of usefulness in the highest senso of the word. Beginning as an engineer, ho had tho fine instincts of a designer and constructor, and perhaps it was this gift, well cultivated, whioh so fitted him for the important duties which on sevoral occasions ho performed at international exhibitions. Abandoning his profession, ho struck out quite a now lino in life, and the engineer and architect becaino a Government official, who onded his days in tho capacity of the Government Resident of tho Northern settlement. His father, Mr. John Knight, and his older brother, both deceased, wore tho firm of Knight and Son, tho well known engineering contractor?, stone and marble motohants, of London. Boing imbued with a love of engineering, Mr. J. G. Knight beoamo a pupil of Mr. H. D. Martin, tho dock and railway engineer, and was subse...

SPORTING NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 February 1892

m^i The Summer meeting of the V.R.C. took place at Flemington on 1st Jan. under most aus pioious circumstances, with the excerption that the attendance was smaller than usual — a fact which was due largely to tho counter attraction of the international cricket matoh. Tho two principal races of the day were appropriated by outsiders, and so were most of the others, the public getting considerably the worst of their speculations with the bookmakers. The Nor manby Stakes was won by Tho Captain, who was favorite, and tho Hurdle Raco fell to Kirnberley, who has been performing very inconsistently lately. Barefoot appropriated the Standish Handicap, being followed home by the favorite, Pygmalion, who got off badly, but ran very brilliantly at the finish. The Steeplechase brought forth a splendid dis play of jumping, and only two mistakes were made over the two miles and a half course. Sohoolboy, who made most of the running, got home first from Quo?nBliuuler, .who jumped splendidly. The B...

LORD SHEFFIELD'S ELEVEN V. ALL AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 February 1892

LORD SHEFFIELD'S ELEVEN V. ALL AUSTRALIA. The matoh between Lord Sheffield's Elevon and All Australia, whioh was commenced on tho Melbourne orioket ground on New Years' day and finished on 6th January, will bo remembered when the youngsters who witnessed it are grey beards. A mure interesting match has oortainly never been played on the orioket field, which was witnessed by 63,000 spectators, tho authenticated attendance according to official returns. That tho visit of. Lord Sheffield and his team has thoroughly aroused publio interest is sufficiently demonstrated by the above figures, and we aro ploaxed to add that the use of the Molbourno oluli'n ground having boon most generously givon, the whole of tlnj reouipts (£3091) less working expanses, and the grand stand entrance money (whioh the M.C.O. committee are compelled to reserve for the debenture holders) will go towards defraying the heavy expenses of the tour.

A NEW TORPEDO BOAT FOR VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 February 1892

A NEW TORPEDO BOAT FOR VICTORIA. About three years ago tho British Admiralty gave an order to Messrs. Yarrow and Co. for six seagoing torpedo boats. These were built on quite a new model, and on trial proved to be the fastest, handiest and best boats possessed by the royal navy. This was afterwards amply veri fied in actual service, for the mauunivres of the following and succeeding years proved these vessels to have quite exceptional seagoing qualities, in addition to speed and man oeuvring powers. Tho Argentine naval authorities took advantage of tho British experience, and gave the above firm an order for six seagoing torpedo boats, which were con structed on the same lines and with similar machinery. Tho vessels wero delivered at the end of lust year, and camo fully up to the expec tations of tho authorities ; indeed, the last of them, which was fitted with a new class of machinery, obtained the great speed of 24£ knots on a two hours' loaded trial, which far exceeds the perform...

LIFE IN THE FIFTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 February 1892

LIFE IN THE FIFTIES. Uv Gimuos. No other gold field in the colony rose into prominence so quickly — or dropped into obscurity so suddenly — ns the Woolslied. I left there in 1856 and on revisiting the Creek in 1865 — just nine years after — I was unable to recognise any of tho old land marks. So complete a change had taken plnce that I had great dilHculty in finding tho site of the slab hut that had during the most exciting period of my life boen my home, every vestige of the hut itself had vanished and not even a fossickcr was to bo seun for miles in any direction. Lower down the stream, however, where the flats widen out into deeper ground a fairly prosper ous digging township still exists, known by the inappropriate name of Eldorado. The Wool shod goldfielil was essentially a 'wot 'diggings, very littlo gold being obtained from the high banks ; excepting n limited area called the 'Devil's Elbow.' None of tho dry shallow ground yielded much return for the labor ex pended ; tho wea...

ICEBERGS IN THIS SOUTHERN OCEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 February 1892

ICEBERGS IN THIS SOUTHERN OCEAN. Tho crow of the ship Gainsborough, which arrived on 2nd Jan. from Antworp, witnessed a wonderful sight when their vessel was a little to the westward of tho Capo of Good Hope. Tho ship's surroundings at the time were so dangerous that the beauty of tho scene was not appreciated at first, but when tho danger was in tho rear oven tlio'pronaic merchantmen could not but admiro tho scene, and on the ship's arrival tell quito a picturesque story of her adventures in an ice field. The story ofthe vessel's passage from tho port of Antwerp to the latitude of 43 dcg. south is of little interest, so the narrative of tlie advoutures.of the Gainsborough will be confined to her passago from tho prime meridian to a point 160 miles to the eastward. The ship passed from the western to the eastern hemisphere in tho latitude of 43 south, tho weather though cold being fine and clear. The winds wore favorable and of moderate power, and the ship was travelling at a fair r...
