"A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH!" [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 April 1872

"A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH!" BY F. S. WILSON. I HAT'S how ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ they found /*{^ KiJ/Vy J morning, when '^Ji li \M ' the great gold en sun was ¿AJ| A\ s car eely two ^JBÖ«^SI hours high in n ^ the heavens, N and when his Ä^Hrmr beams had gJiñlL only just fin ^Kl) ished off gild /*<S¡? ing the hill- tops, and were gradually proceeding with their work downwards-into the river nooks and bays where the mists still floated about so sleepily. The morning sunlight was playing through the wiry foliage of the native-oaks, and twisted among the leaves like flakes of fire ; but they had scarcely descended to the roof tree when I arrived : and long before that they had found him. The way of it was this. The people in the neighbourhood had been attracted by the howling of a dog for some hours before the morning broke, and as they knew the man kept no living thing about his house except his daughter, and hadn't done so for years, they wondered that he had opened his heart so wide ...

Literature. HADDY. A MEMORY OF SCHOOL DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 April 1872

H ADD Y. A MEMORY OF SCHOOL DAYS. ABOUT eight years ago I returned to England, after an absence of some twelve or thirteen years, spent in knocking and being knocked about in this charming retreat ycleped Aus- tralia. Amongst other relics of old days, which my dear mother had kept treasured up as sad, yet sacred, memorials of the absent one, .was my -writing-desk, a gift of hers to me, on, I think, my twelfth birthday. It was locked-untouched-unopened, she told me, since my departure-for she was the very soul of honour towards us, as well as every one, and would have scorned to have sought for what might not have been meant for her to see. Well, I took it to my room, and with a half smile, half shake of the head, as I recollected a goodish many items locked up therein, that would have considerably aston- ished my worthy mother, had she read them, I slowly turned the key, opened the desk, and began leisurely to examine its contents. What a heterogeneous collection of rubbish ! Dunnin...

Poetry. THE BOY AND THE BROOK. (A new poem by Longfellow.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 April 1872

THE BOY AND THE BROOK. (A new poem by Longfellow.) DOWN from yon distant mountain height The brooklet flows through thc village street, A boy comes forth to wash his hands, Washing, yes washing, there he stands In the water cool and sweet. " Brook, from what mountain dost thou come ? O my brooklet cool and sweet ! " " I come from yon mountain high and cold, Where lieth the new snow on the old, And melts in the summer heat." " Brook, to what river dost thou go '? O my brooklet cool and sweet ! " " I go to the river there below, Where in bunches the violets grow, And sun and shadow meet." " Brook, to what garden dost thou go ? O my brooklet cool and sweet ! " " I go to the garden in the vale, Where all night long the nightingale Her love-song doth repeat." " Brook, to what fountain dost thou go ? O my brooklet cool and sweet ! " " 1 go to that fountain at whose brink The maid that loves thee comes to drink ; And, whenever she looks therein, I risc to meet her, and kiss her chin, And m...

NEW PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, MOUNT GAMBIER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 April 1872

NEW PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, . MOUNT GAMBIER. OUR illustration of the new Presbyterian Church, recently opened at Mount Gambier, is from a photograph by Mr. Wedd, and we extract the subjoined description of the building from the Mount Gambier Standard : -" The church is constructed of the salmon coloured stone locally denominated as dolo- mite, with white coral limestone string courses and facings. The style is known among architects as early English, but it possesses enrichments in bands, mouldings, labels, and buttresses, which were character- istic of the architecture of a later period. The windows are lanciform, with muilions and tracery, and the main entrance is in the western gable, beneath a large four-light tra- ceried window. A well-proportioned tower with belfry and spire occupies the north- western corner of the edifice, designed to contain a gallery entrance and stairs. The church is on a gentle eminence a very short distance north-west from the centre of the   ...

PORTRAIT OF GEORGE ROBERT NICHOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 April 1872

PORTRAIT OF GEORGE ROBERT NICHOLS. THIS person, who at present stands charged with the murder of Messrs. Bridger and Walker, is a native of Sydney, and a son of the late Mr. Isaac Nichols, of this city. He is a tolerably good linguist, and by travel is familiar with several foreign countries, in- deed, for a man of his age, about thirty, he has had a pretty varied experience of life. His education is good, and his appearance and address pleasing. He has been married for some years, and has two children. His wife appears to be a most estimable woman, and so largely had she gained the good-will of the neighbours among whom she resided, that during her husband's incarceration in Darlinghurst Gaol, some eighteen months ago, she found numbers to assist her. Among others who took a great interest in her case was the minister of the parish in which she lived. To this gentleman, Nichols paid a visit on his liberation, and expressed great penitence for his former career, and gratitude for th...

IRON LATTICE BRIDGE NEAR BATHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 April 1872

IRON LATTICE BRIDGE NEAR   BATHURST. This bridge was commenced twelve months ago last February, but the work has been much delayed by the constant rain and floods, which have prevailed ever since. In spite of many obstructions, however, through the indefatigable exertions of Mr. Taylor, the engineer who has had the charge of its erection, it has recently been thrown open to the public. It is sup- ported by brackets on four wooden piers placed 75 ft. 3 in. apart and is 7 ft. 3 in. from the floor to the top. The end piers are 13 feet high, and the two middle ones 19 and 22 ft. respectively from the bed of   the river. The floor is 6 ft. higher than the point reached by the great flood of 1867. The iron work was manufactured Messrs. M'Arthur and Co., of Sydney ; and the contractors are Messrs. Bartholomew and Smitherman. It cost about £2000 .     (See illustration page 57}

PORTRAIT OF ALFRED LESTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 April 1872

PORTRAIT OF ALFRED LESTER, ALFRED LESTER, alias Froude, appears to have come of respectable family, is a native of Dorsetshire in England, and is well edu-   cated. In appearance he is a mere lad, which carries weight to his statement that he is only twenty years of age, but, according to those who knew him in early boyhood, his real age is about twenty-two. At a very early age he assumed the duties of a telegraph clerk in a Berkshire village, and with such zeal and in- telligence were his duties performed, that he was soon transferred to a more lucrative and responsible position—the charge of the Read- ing telegraph station. This elevation seems to have been the beginning of his downward career, for habits of dissipation and extrava- gance soon led to their inevitable result ; and in a short time we find him embezzling the funds of the office, flying from justice to London, thence to Sydney. After living here for some time, in the employment of P. F. Adams, Esq., Surve...

MAXIMILIAN CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 April 1872

WRECK OP THE BRIG MARIA WITH THE NEW GUINEA EXPEDITION. MAXIMILIAN CREEK. Taking rank as one of the principal rivers in Gipps Land is the Avon, which takes its rise in the great Dividing Range, and Maxi- milian Creek, one of its tributaries, is the subject of our engraving. The precise spot from whence our view was taken is near to the township of Gladstone, which was de- stroyed by a bush fire on the 24th Decem ber, 1868, and the hut seen on the left is one that escaped the ravages of the destroy- ing element. Considerable prospecting has been carried on in this neighborhood. Almost over the whole locality auriferous country has been discovered, and a party of miners have squatted down in the old for- saken hut and are reported to have been very successful in their pursuit of the pre- cious metal in this wild secluded spot.

WRECK OF THE BRIG MARIA—NEW CUINEA EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 April 1872

WRECK OF THE BRIG MARIA-NEW ! CUINEA EXPEDITION. i Ix our last we reported the sad news that the brig Maria, carrying the members of the New Guinea Prospecting Expedition, had been totally lost on a reef north of Cardwell, and that forty-three men were missing. Since then the steamers Basilisk and Governor Blackall have been despatched to the neigh bourhood, and the result is that eight more persons have been rescued, and . that all the rest (with the exception of two supposed to have been washed off the rafts) are accounted for. Nine or ten corpses were found on the beach, being the remains of men who had evidently been murdered by the blacks whilst making their way to Cardwell, but the majority of the young fellows who per- ished in this ill-fated expedition were washed off the rafts while endeavouring to reach the mainland. The following extracts, which apply to our illustration of " the wreck," are taken from the graphic description of the affair by Mr. Goble, storekeeper to the...

Mining Matters. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 April 1872

Jflmmg patters. Is our article " The Mouth. " we have given a synopsis of the mining intelligence of the past few weeks. From the Hill End Times, we glean the following particulars : On Saturday morning last most startling rumours were current on Hill End respecting a still richer find then ever in Krohmann's claim on the previous night. One individual gravely assured us that they "had come on i it solid at last, and that they Avere cutting [ up the gold in chunks with cold chisels." The fact turned out to be that stone surpass- ing any yet found for size and richness had been come on, iii such quantity that it was impossible to bring it up from the claim that evening. Messrs. Krohmann and Heinz went down next morning and brought it up in a cart, placing it in a safe in Hodgson's Free Selection Store, where wc were invited to see it. In this instance, rumour of the thou- sand tongues had proved correct, for the richness of the stone was certainly a caution. One very large piace, far...

Chapters on Common Things [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 April 1872

Cftapteps on Common C&ûtg* SPICES-No. II. NUTMEG-. HAVING, in a previous number, given some account of tbe growth and culti- vation of the Cinnamon tree, we shall now proceed to describe the plant to which we are indebted for the Nutmeg. This tree, Myristica moschata, grows principally in a group of islands forming a part of the Moluccas, and called the Isles of Banda ; a cluster which seems to have been thrown up by the sea in some volcanic effort, as there is now upon one of them, named Gonong Api, a volcano, constantly emitting smoke, and often flames. The first island, Banda Neira, is the chief settlement, and contains two forts ; its harbour is spacious, but diffi- cult of access. The second island is Banda Lantoir ; the third and fourth in importance are Pulo way and Pulorun. These four is- lands were the only places where the culti- vation of the nutmeg was allowed by the Dutch, but there are several others under the same government. What these islands produce in supe...

The Month. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 April 1872

THE MONTH. THE Political events of the past month, although they have by no means formed the engrossing topics of talk, call for mention at this point on account of their character. In the first place, then, the general elections are over ; and, as we anticipated from the first, have resulted in an emphatic defeat of the Martin-Robertson Ministry. Messrs. Windeyer, Wilson and Byrnes, three members of the Government who were persistently thrown out by the voices of electorate after electorate, have, of course, no option now but to retire into private life : indeed, the first-mentioned gentleman, accord- ing to the Herald, has sent in his resignation already. As to the rest of the Ministry, all sorts of rumours are afloat with regard to their future movements. Some think that they will part with the seals of office forthwith ; others anticipate an attempt on the part of the Premier to pass the Estimates prior to the date of resig- nation ; but large sections of the public appear to be...

OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 April 1872

OURSELVES. It is our intention to introduce in the Illustrated Sydney News a number of new features, in order to render our periodical more valuable and attractive to the reading public of Australia. Foremost and most important among these alterations, will be the setting apart a portion of our space to a series of original articles and correspondence on Agricultural and Pastoral matters. It is intended that this particular section of the News shall comprise all that will be of practical value to those engaged in the various branches of farming and grazing. It is almost impossible to enumerate all the subjects which will be introduced, of real practical utility to the above classes ; but we have men- tioned a few of the leading ideas in the circular enclosed with this issue. It is also intended to give the Illustrated Sydney News, for the future, more the character of a general Australian Family Magazine, wherein will be found something to interest, instruct, and amuse the thousands...

NEW RAILWAY TERMINUS, REDFERN, SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 April 1872

NEW RAILWAY TERMINUS, RED- FERN, SYDNEY. WE present, in this issue, an engraving of a new Railway Station, intended as the Me- tropolitan Terminus, and which will replace the old, wooden, barn-like edifice, which has been in use for so many years. The work is now in rapid progress, and although the brickwork is only up to the springing of the arches, we have-been enabled, by the courtesy of the gentlemen from whose office the plan emanated, to give an illustration of the building, as it will appear when finished. The length of the structure will be 235 feet ; the walls, twenty feet in height, will be built with red and white bricks, on a stone plinth. The piers and arches will be of white bricks, and the filling in will be red bricks, relieved between the spandrils of the arches by lozenge-shaped, sunk panels of white bricks, and the whole surmounted by a bold, projecting cornice of stone, supported by stone brackets with panels between them. The ends of the main building will each ...
