GRAND MASONIC BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

GRAND MASONIC BALL AT THE PROTESTANT HALL, MELBOURNE (SEE NEXT PAGE ; \ GRAND MASONIC BALL. WE last week laid before pur readers the particulars of this ball, in the form of a letter from our Melbourne correspondent, to which we reter. We may repeat that the ball took place in the Protestant Hall, Stephen-street, on Tuesday, the 18th ult. The hall, we be- . J.*«.I, ~^r.._.-,-, lieve, was, till then, wholly unsuited for a .public ball. The im- provements, however, effected by the introduction of appropriate embellishments and convenient reception rooms, transformed it into an eic;ant saloon, which, together with the whole arrange- ments, gave unqualified satisfaction. We p ive the following ex- tract from the Melbourne. Morning Herald, of the 25th ultimo : " The company entered.the room through a floral arch, affording a fine view ol'the whole, and of the brilliant , effects of light colour, and ornament, and their harmonious combination. The room was arranged in panels, pilasters, &...

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

"PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. MALCOM'S AMPHITHEATRE.-We paid our usual visit to the Amphitheatre on Thursday evening.. The spirited proprietor still continues to introduce novelty and variety, not only in the arena, hut on the stage : and is evidently resolved to spare no expense either in this respect, or in the decoration of the Circus. Mr. Malcom's visitors will be »lad to learn that he has engaged the services of Professor Lees and his clever young family, who are to make their debut in the Circus on Monday evening. Those who have witnessed their performances in England, or during their short stay in the Colony, must haye admired the dignity and classic beauty with which they grace every action .and movement. We hope to be able to give an illustration of them, in one of their graceful attitudes, in an early number. Miss Howard, who is really a talented young lady, appeared in her usual chaste style, in ' Constance on the Love-Chase.' We are a.aih called on to notice the ' Australian Star,...

SCIENTIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

SCIENTIFIC, GAS LIGHTING.-An important improvement is said to have just been made in France in the mode of purifying gas for lighting. Instead of lime, .the inventor used peat charcoal and acids, which deprived the gas of the sulphur and ammonia. The gas thus puri- fied is said to have an addition of 10 per cent, to its illuminating power, and the materials used for the purification of the gas are converted into a manure so valuable, it is declared, that it can be sold for more than the original cost.-Builder. We learn from the Stamford Mercury that a journeyman carpen- ter named Spring, residing- at Peterborough, has invented a musi- cal bellows by which, while blowing the fire, he can play three popular airs with " astonishing precision." The music resembles that of a concertina, and the tone is exceedingly mellow. CURE FOR RHEUMATISM.-The following recipe for rheumatic incarnation has been lately presented to the French Academy of Sciences, by a retired army surgeon of Paris, as ...

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. Nightmare.- We rire afraid that this article, as a whole,-is un- suited for our columns. The writer, rue think, is too deeply read for the generality of readers.

STRANGE MODE OF GETTING A WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

STRANGE MODE OF GETTING A WIFE. The following sketch illustrates the fact, that one little act of politeness will sometimes pave the way to fortune and preferment. A sailor, roughly garbed, was sauntering through the streets of New Orleans, then in a rather damp condition, from recent rain and the rise of the tide. Turning the corner of a much frequented and narrow street, he observed a young lady standing in perplexity, ap- parently measuring the depth of the muddy water between her and the opposite pavement, with no very satisfied countenance. Tho sailor paused, for he was a great admirer of beauty, and cer- tainly, the face that peeped out from under the little strawbonnet, and the auburn curls hanging, glossy and unconfined, over her muslin dress, might tempt a curious or an admiring glance. Per- plexed, tjje lady put forth one little foot, when the gallant sailor, with characteristic impulsiveness, exclaimed-"That little foot, lady, should not be soiled with the dirt of this st...

ORIGINAL POETRY. LINES UPON HE AUING A LADY PLAY "HOME, | SWEET HOME." ( Written for the Illustrated Sydney News.) Olí ! wake again that solemn strain, It tells of happier years, Ere yet the heart was rent with pain, The eye bedim'd with tears. 1 Oh! wake that sôlemnstrain again, Strike, strike that well-known note, And let those scenes where we have been, In fancy o'er us float ! . Why are ive wont" so high to praise The days so long pass'd by, ' Why do our thoughts of childhood rise To memory with a sigh' '! ? ?

How like that transitory tread, , The hopes are cherished then, Those sunny ...

THE UNCERTAINTY OF APPEARANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

THE UNCERTAINTY OF APPEARANCES. The most remarkable instance of appearances being opposed to facts is contained in a true incident which befell Prasca Loupow loff, the'heroic Russian girl who travelled on foot from Siberia to St. Petersburgh, for the purpose of soliciting the pardon of her ex- iled parents at the hands of the Emperor, upon which noble proof of a daughter's love, the exquisite tale of..." Elizabeth, or the Ex- iles of Siberia," is founded. She chanced to arrive, after nightfall, in a town, the name of which she never could learn exactly, and knocking at the door of the first house she came to, it was opened by an old man of a most forbidding countenance. He rudely in- quired what she wanted, and when she asked for a night's lodging, shut the door in her face. An instant after he called her back and said she might come in if she pleased. Prasca felt rather sorry than glad that he had changed his mind, and the sight of his wife, an old woman even more unpleasant lookin...

FACETIAE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

FACE TUE. ! Matthews, in one of his entertainments, used to give, as genuine, an inscription on the gravestone of a person who had died sud- denly :- , Quite well at ten, had a party to sup with me, To oed went at one, and at two 'twas all up with me. The attention of the mistress of a family was lately called to the fact that a little .coloured girl was constantly seen lying on the grass-plot, with her face turned up to the sun. Upon being ques- tioned why she assumed mat posture, she answered, " Why, missis always lays de tings on de grass what she wants to make white. I want to get white too." A shrewd gentleman of the shears and goose, having occasion to leave his shop for a few moments, stepped to his desk, turned the ? key, and put it into his pocket. A spendthrift son being present, said :-" You need not have taken the trouble to lock your desk, for I shall stay here while you are gone."-" That is the very reason why I locked it," replied the tailor, " for there is money in i...

GLEANINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

.--A GLEANINGS. "' HEALTH AND WEALTH.T-t-There is this difference between those two temporal blessings - health and wealth ; wealth is the most envied, but the least enjoyed'.; health is the most enjoyed, but the least envied ; and this superiority.of the latter"is still moré obvious when we reflect that thepoorest man would not part with health for wealth, but that the richest would gladly part with all his wealth for health. .

THE CORPORATION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

THE CORPORATION. THE Bill, enacting the dissolution of the Corporation oí Sydney» which had .passed the Legislative Council, received1, on Saturday last, the assent of His Excellency, the Goverr nor General. Whatever opinions may exist as to the uti- lity of such bodies in general, one thing is certain-that this particular corporation .has sunk amid the odium and derision of those who elected it. No one can deny that the citizens -have had every opportunity of expressing their sen- timents-with regard to its retention, or abolition : and what those sentiments were, they, when called upon, expressed most emphatically by not expressing them at all. In vain did the Mayor solemnly convene public meetings to pro- test against the annihilation of the body over which he pre- sided ; in vain were the walls of the town covered with fiery manifestoes, conjuring, the citizens to rush to the rescue of their imperilled corporation : nobody read the one, and nobody attended the other.

PARRAMATTA ANNUAL RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

PARRAMATTA. ANNUAL RACES. THE old proverb tells us to." make hay whilst the sunshines;" but-shades of Nimrod!-what forage for their equines can the sporting folk pick up in such Noah's Ark weather as greeted the Parramatta meeting ? Talk about casting a. damp upon an intended merry gathering ! why, the first day of tlie programme was a regu- lar soaker, and would have made ihree-quartcr grog of the most ardent spirits ; and patent india-rubber invulnerables, not being at the 6ec/f-and-call of every one, it was wisely determined to defer the sports till the next day, Thursday. The discretion of the Stewards in thus actin?, was fully proved by the result of the l'acing, as influenced by the state of the course. All turfites must acknowledge that the Parramatta course is any- thing but a play-ground for their nags at the best of seasons, and many serious accidents to good horses, fully bear out our {jiving vent to the truism, although our Parramattonian f iends may think it better left...

A PAPIER MACHE VILLAGE FOR AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

.A PAPIER MACHE VILLAGE FOR AUSTRALIA. Building houses with cards lias been a favourite pastime of many a past generation ; hut it was reserved for the ingenuity of the pre sent day to construct habitations of paper. Yet of this frail mate- rial is manufactured the "village" shown in the accompaying Il- lustration. Papier-mache" has long been extensively employed for the intaiior decorations of houses ; but to Messrs. Bielelield is due the merit of applying the elegant material in external constructions ; and, having been commissioned hy Mr. Symour-a gentleman about to I take up his residence in Australia-to manufacture for him a cer I tain number of portable houses; the paper village was executed, and temporally set up at the works of Messrs. Bielefield, near the Staines statton of the South-Western Railway. The village is com- posed of ten houses, including a villa, with nine rooms, 12 feet high ; a store-house, 80 feet long, with four dwelling-rooms, (sit- ting room, two bed-room...

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AUSTRALIA. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1853. THE DEFENCES OF SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1853. THE DEFENCES OF SYDNEY. THE mareil of events is so rapid in these exciting times, that the plans of to-day are liable to be mocked by thc necessities of to- morrow. Since wc last wrote, news of the most vital importance to the safety and welfare of the colony have reached its shores. The French nation has become our nearest neighbour, and has estab- lished a colony on the shores of New Caledonia. There is no doubt that this infant partaking of the warlike character of its sire, will spring like Minerva, ready armed, from the train of Jove. The toys of young France are the bayonet and the cannon. We plodding, business-like Anglo-Saxons, must not remain complacent ánd defenceless, with such an active and excitable friend in such close proximity. For, supposing we may be able to answer for.our own good fellowship, we must remember that contingencies may occur 16.000 miles away, Avhich would convert these polite neigh- bours into inveterate foes, and our mott...

CHEAP DIET. PART V. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

CHEAP DIET. ' . .. ; PART V. , 3W had come the great ; crisis of GeoflreyFennel's life. He felt it, as he .: stood face to face with Miss Wynn in the ver- dant alley. There was to be no more postpone- ment-no more evasion. The great question was to ba put now, the answer to which was to decide the happiness or misery of his future life. Miss Wynn seemed possessed with the same consciousness. Her eyes sparkled - her cheek flushed-and her whole I countenance was ani- j mated with .the anticipa tion of her final triumph. Why should I pain my readers with the details of the scene that ensued? Geoffrey's love was absurd-was ridicul- ous, if you will : but it was earnest-it was true. It was it that now touched his lips with real eloquence - that made his face appear almost hand . some. eei\ ainly interesting-and that-forcing him to forget tl] unapproachable distance between him and the object of his pas sion,-forcing him to forget all things hut the fact that he lovec and that she whom he...

SWAN HUNT NEAR MUMMELL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

SWAN HUNT NEAR MUMMELL. The above engraving is from a sketch by T. F. Balcombe, Esq., at present residing at Mummell, near Goulburn, who has kindly forwarded it to us, along with the following communication : (To the Editor of the Illustrated-Sydney News.) 25th October, 1853. SIR,-I enclose you a sketch of a swan-hunt which took place a few days ago. Being anxious for some duck-shooting, I left Mum- mell, the residence of Mr. John Chisholm, in company with, young Henry Strickey, and rode to an extensive lagoon on Breadalbane Plain, where we saw large flocks of ducks, which were, however, so-shy, that we had great difficulty in getting within shot ; .riding down the margin of the lagoon, we sighted two black swans at some distance, swimming rapidly to the tall reeds, apparently some two or three hundred yards from the margin of the lake. We imme diately put our horses' heads towards the rushes, in the hope of cutting off their retreat ; and, after floundering and splashing a good dea...

CRIME IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

CRIME IN VICTORIA. WE last week laid before our readers a truthful representation of the state of vice in Sydney. The picture was a frightful one ; and we dare say that many of them were both shocked and alarmed by   the naked exposure of the wickedness in the midst of which they are existing. We can readily believe, too, that persons, who in England peruse that account, will endeavour to mitigate the sense of any immorality which they may see around them by the reflec- tion-"after all, we are not so bad as we might be. Thank God,   we are not like Sydney yet !" Well, to us, also, a similar conso- lation, selfish and unsatisfactory though it he, is open ; and, girt, as we are, with sottish drunkenness and brazen harlotry, we may still thank Heaven that we have not yet sunk to the degradation of Melbourne. With all our vice, we have but little serious crime: none, perhaps, more serious than the burglaries and highway rob- beries which have recently occurred,...
