12-08-1870: Sydney Intercolonial Exhibition 1870.

The Argus, Melbourne, Friday 12th August 1870, page 4.

“The Dandenong, which sailed yesterday for Sydney, conveyed 60 packages for the Intercolonial Exhibition. The exhibits included specimens of auriferous quartz from Messrs. Latham and Watson; Pianos of local manufacture from Messrs. Wilkie, Kilner, and Co; an interesting mineralogical collection from Professor Abel, of Ballarat; stained glass from Messrs. Fergusson,[sic] Urie, and Lyon; and a large quantity of agricultural implements, beer, spirits, oatmeal, and biscuits. The Victorian commissioners intend to make their last shipment by the City of Adelaide, as they have already exceeded the time allowed them by the Sydney authorities.”
