KAir.WAY .rorsiiKuv. A i-'kw of mil" readers m.'iy probably have noticed a string cif advertisements hcided "Victorian Railways,'' which have appeared in some of our contem poraries, t'.illin.j '.'or temiers for tiitnil.tr girder bridge.-!, cranes, turn tables,water pipes, chairs, keys, switches, and other materials of railways, oil account of a Melbourne and Willi.unstown railway. 1'ue colony of Victoria, for which these articles are stated to be destined, pos sesses four very striking characteristics - it is the youngest or" the colonies ; it lias the largest amount of trade ; but all the gold produced in the country iias not suiiiccd to prevent it from hav ing the unenviable notoriety of being "the Insolvent Colony."

GREAT FIRE AT THE WHITE HILLS. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 4 February 1857
GREAT FIRE AT THE WHITE HILLS. A BOUT one o'clock on Thursday morning the people of Sandhurst were aroused by tiie cry of " fire," and by the noise of the Fire Brigade getting out the engine, in consequence of a fire which occurred upon the premises of Mr I'Vicker, of the 4th White Hill, or next to the Robin Hood Hotel. The blaze appeared to he much nearer, and hence many persons went out who otherwise would have remained in town; but it ia highly creditable to the people of Sand hurst that they were so ready to turn out; and great praise is also due to the members of the brigade for the prompt manner in which they got out the engine and the other appliances ncce?sary for putting out a fire. The premises con sumed were the stores in the rear of Mr Pricker's shop, in which he had a large quantity of good*, and amongst other articles, many kegs of powder, which exploded in regular succession, like the guns at Sebustopol. The fire, whilst it lasted, raged furiously, and, from the infla...

SVk live in strange times nntl in a strange country, but the strongest mat ter w11ie;i has strue&lt; us in contemplat ing our present political position is the carelessness and wilfulness with which the ministers of thejday tieat some of the most important features of parliamen tary institutions. The Victorian con stitution confers upon the people the rights of self-government through a popularly elected parliament, whose functions anil duties are to control and check the despotic and unprincipled vagaries of the ministry by keeping the dread of responsibility in full view. Both houses of parliament have ac knowledged the value and importance of the general rules on which pflklir business is , transacted in the imperial legislature.

COLONIAL WINES. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 5 February 1857
COLONIAL WINES. WtiY should we id Australia trouble gentlemen in Kngland to manufacture bad wines, mid ship them out to us under false labels, at great expense, when we could produce and ought to produce, a better commodity for our ..selves, at /it leist /is low a price ? The cliinntc and soil of this colony have been proved to be eminently suitable to vine culture, yet this branch ol" industry has never yet assumed commercial import ance. It has been the hobby of a few rich men, but it has not been followed as a regular branch of husbandry. The failure of the viuyards in Europe might serve us a stimulus to this too long neglected opening for colonial industry. The testimonial given to the sample of Australian wine shown ntthe Paris Kxhihition, sufficiently proves tint this colony possesses all the essential re quisites lor making good wine. Uniform excellence is, of course, not to be obtained .at once. Much patience anil perseverance will be requisite, experiments and even mistakes...
