FACETI[?] [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 October 1853

A " COOL HAND."-Whcr*' kprd Dorchester was Governor bf ' Canada, a young ensign of thfgarrison» newly arrived./was invited, I as a matter of course, to dine fe1 Government House. Thc Gover- nor was a precise, pragmatic^ man; while the young "slip of j quality"-for such he happen\ed to be-was, on the contrary1, a gauche, ignorant, under-bred ltfQ' On this occasion he first m¿h ! gled a fowl, in endeavouring tk carve it, to the silent horrör'of Lord Dorchester; and then he UPset.A glass of wilie on the table ¡ ! in trying to recover his balance. \This was too much for guberna- ! tonal flesh and blood to bear, "pood God, Sir," exclaimed the irate Governor, pointing to the st?lned damask, " where could you ¡ have been brought up?"

SPORTING EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 October 1853

j SPORTING EVENTS. MATCH BETWEEN SPORTSMAN AND COORAMIN FOR £1500. The Match par excellence, which had for some months created the greatest excitement in the Sporting circle of Sydney and its neighbourhood, came off on Thursday, 29th September. Want of space compels us to lay aside our sketch of this match, for which, however, we hope to indemnify our Subscribers by the illustration which we shall give in our next number of the Race for the Champion Handicap at the Drapers' Meeting. Of thc match itself little is to be said, it being "alione way." On the word " go" being given, Cooramin jumped off with a lead of about two lengths, which he maintained for half thc distance, when Sports- man came up, passed him without an effort, and won ila the commonest of canters by a dozen lengths ; time 2 min..56 sec. THE DRAPERS' HOMEBUSH RACES. - These Races, which, were exceedingly well attended, came off on Thursday last. Press : of matter in this, as in other instances, obliges us to defer ou...

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 October 1853

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. MALCOM'S AMPHITHEATRE.-We account for the thinness .of the house, on tile occasion of our late visits, to the attraction which has been held out, during the past week, within the walls of the Victoria Theatre. The attendance for several nights past would really induce a stranger to believe that the performance was unworthy of a visit. But far from this being the case, the whole of the arrangements are most creditable to the proprietor. Where all do well, it would be invidious to particularize ; but we must say that Mr. J. Melville's execution on a rotatory globe is truly wonderful, and his riding shows that practice will make him one of the first equestrians of the day. Miss Maria Louisa Fawcett deserves a compliment for her depiction of the passions, love, prayer, joy, fear, jealousy, and revenge. Mr. Malcom will accept our thanks for his courtesy to our reporter. THE THEATRE.-We visited the house on Monday evening on the occasion of Mr. Howard's benefit. We have...

SYDNEY RIFLE CLUB. ON Monday last, the 3rd inst, this club held one of their quarterly meetings, to shoot, according to their regulations, for 3 prizes. The first at 200 yards, the second at 150 yards, and the third at 100 yards; each member contending to nre ö snots ; for each prize, from the shoulder, standing up, without a rest. The winner of one prize not to be allowed to gain another ;' owing, j doubtless, to the fact of the " venue " having been changed from the usual shooting ground, to the back of Thurlow's Terrace, corn-: paratively few spectators were present, The members of the club mustered about 20 strong, and the shooting, especially for the 2nd and 3rd prizes, came quite tip to the average.

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AUSTRALIA. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8TH, 1853. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 October 1853

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8TH, 1850. WE present our readers to-day with the first number of THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. Aware of the expec- tations that have been raised hy its announcement, and knowing the high standard of pictorial excellence to which our readers have been accustomed, we heg for it their in- dulgent consideration. 'We attempt to establish in a young colony a publi- cation resembling that which taxes the pictorial genius of a great and polished nation. It is a bold attempt ; for all experiences teaches that in young socie- ties the useful sciences far predominate over the elegant - arts. But the circumstances of this community would seem to furnish an exception to this general rule. A very large proportion of our population. hav.ei had their tastes cultivated, and their intellectual, faculties sliarpehed, by European education and refinement. We trust also that the native Australians will hail our humble effort as the \ harbinger of that glorious era in the history of a n...

Thou into whose lap,   Unconscious of its wealth, kind Nature shower'd     Treasure untold, and on the world's wide map No other country half so richly dower'd― Advance, and bear thy quick and keen regard   Undazzled o'er thy glittering bounds of gold;   Anticipate thy future, lest, blight-marr'd, The full-blown flower match not the bud leaf-rolled.   Advance, Anstralia! At last thy sire     Has loosed from thine his strong and guiding hand;   Henceforth, thou walkest by thine own desire,       Art free to retrograde, art free to stand;   Oh, let thy proud march, then, be onward ever,   Lifting thy bright looks o'er the present while,―     To those wh...

CHEAP DIET. PART I. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 October 1853

CHEAP DIET.     PART I.   THE most timid of my readers need not appre- hend that I am about to inflict upon them a   disquisition on the eco- nomy of articles of food;   that I have any inten- tion of demonstrating that venison is dearer than mutton, and plain bread cheaper than plum-cake. My pur- pose is to give them a slight sketch of a cha- racter with whom I was acquainted in my early days; and if from some of the circumstances with which he was con- nected, even one of my readers derives any be- nefit, I shall be more than compensated for the trouble of narration. It is a great many years ago―how many, I fear to say―and I am standing, a boy of eleven or twelve, before the open door of my father's house. With me are a brother and two sisters, all younger than myself. It is a fine summer evening, and the declining sun shines .brightly on the small, but pleasant lawn, unsurpassed in freshness and verdure by any in th...

SCIENTIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 October 1853

I SCIENTIFIC. THE AMERICAN EXHIBITION OF THE INDUSTRY OF ALL NATIONS.-New York, .June 9th, 1853. It is the boast of progress that from a small beginning, it. advances with every hour to a more perfect development. But in the enterprise of a worlds fair, and speaking solely with a reference to its American, successor, this boast becomes a brag. The glittering avalanche of Hyde Park has dwindled to a snow-ball and the country proud of the " tallest cata- racts " and the " loudest thunder " will probably produce an exhi- bition inferior to that now being held in the Irish Metropolis. An undertaking so vast seemed to re.quire the sanction and support of something more than private enterprise. Nevertheless the form of the American political system, and the constitutional restrictions imposed on the federal executive, rendered it impossible that the matter should be taken up and carried through by government. It therefore devolved upon c a company ; and it is but just to add, that the Dir...

OUR CONNECTION WITH ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 October 1853

OUR CONNECTION WITH ENGLAND. ' WE wish to take the earliest opportunity of laying befoi our readers once for all, and unmistakeably, our opinion on this important subject. Those who object to our con nection with England-those who wish to sever that con nection-admit the intrinsic excellence of the Euglis Government,-admit that, in England, a desire to over throw it would be folly. The good we receive, is nc denied ; the distance, from which we receive it, is quarrells with. Yes : we cannot too often repeat that the sole rea argument, drawn from the present state of things, in favo of Australian independence, is the remoteness fror England of these colonies. But we verily believe ther are persons who think it a grievance to be shone upon b; the sun, and who would, if they could, prevent his beam: from ripening their wheat and maturing their vegetables because he dispenses warmth and light from a distance o ninety-five millions of miles. We have used the word: "present state of thing...

LETTERS HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 October 1853

^^/'^^S^ LETTERS HOME. AVe have much pleasüre^ii(i giving insertion to the follov ing extract from a " Recent/Arrival's Monthly Lett« Home:"- : ? " \ Sydney, July, 1853. It is an invariable rule with merchants here to send home di plicates of létters and other important documents (by diffère: . vessels, of course) not so much in case one copy should be lost, ¡ that one might reach England sooner than the other ; and you kno that even a few days are, in many cases, of the greatest possible coi sequence' to mercantile men. Trade here, in consequence of variety of circumstances, which cannot possibly exist in a countt whose institutions are more firmly established, is liable to sudde and repeated changes; these changes, at the same time, are gene rally extreme. In Melbourne, for instance, a few weeks ago an article sold, and at any price ; it appears now that, in consequenc of recent arrivals from America and England, the market is pei fectly glutted and trade is as dull as ditch-water...

TROWEL AND MALLET PRESENTED TO HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 October 1853

TROWEL AND MALLET PRESENTED TO HIS EX- CELLENCY THE GOVERNOR GENERAL. THE above illustration is a correct representation of the Trowel and Mallet presented to his Excellency, on the occasion of laying the Foundation Stone of the New Exchange, from a sketch taken at Government House, with the kind permission of George Fitz- Roy, Esq. It may be as well to recal to the recollection of our readers the particulars of an event, which, we think, will prove a most interesting one in the annals of Sydney. On the 25th of August, 1853, the Directors of the Sydney Exchange proceeded to the site of the proposed building, where they were met by the principal military and civil dignitaries, the Foreign Consuls, and a large concourse of spectators. His Excellency the Governor General arrived shortly after two o'clock, and, on his arrival, was addressed by the Chairman, Mr. Alexander Campbell, and pre- sented by him with a glass bottle, containing the following coins : In gold, a sovereign ; in silv...

FINE ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 October 1853

FINE ARTS. THERE is not so much difference between painting and literature as some would imagine. A picture is a book for the entertainment or instruction of those who may peruse it, and -the artist is an author seeking to propound a theory, to narrate a story, or to indite a poem, by the aid of the pencil instead of the pen. Thus the painter of history and of ordinary domestic scenes may be com- pared with the dramatist whether of tragedy or comedy, to the no- velist, and to the descriptive writer ; he who practises religious art with the theologian and the purely didactic writer ; while the land- scape painter may take his place beside the poet whose inspirations are drawn from the world of nature around him. It would be difficult to determine the question whether the productions of au thor or artist tend more to the moral benefit of mankind ; one thing, however, may be stated without fear of contradiction, that while much, very müch has been written, even by the most gifted minds...

RUSSIA, TURKEY, FRANCE, AND ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 October 1853

RUSSIA, TURKEY, FRANCE, AND ENGLAND.   No subject of modern times, internationally considered, has created a greater sensation throughout European so- ciety than that which has recently become matter of dif-   ference between the Russian and Turkish Governments. Whether we regard it in its prospective effects in reference   to the future advancement of the principles of liberty, or the almost certain retardation of civilisation, as the balance   may preponderate on one side or the other―or whether we regard it in its effects on the future geographical relations,   or on the monetary relations of states, the subject is, at the present moment, equally important. To none is it more   important, in the latter acceptation, than to our country- men at home―and through them to all the colonial inter- ests which bind many of the most distant parts of the world with the commercial and monied interests of the Britis...
