NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 August 1864
NEW ZEALAND. The war cloud -which has go long hung oser the northern island is at last clearing away, and there is now. every pros- pect of a speedy and lasting peace. One hundred and fifty Maories, including some of the leading chiefs in the Taurangi district, have voluntarily surrendered their anns and taken the oath of allegiance. The recent def eats of the king party, and the privations to which the rebels have been sxibjected have had a wholesome effect ; the *¡ast coast natives have offered sub- mission to the Queen's authority, and by latest advices Sir George Grey and General Cameron were on their way to receive their formal submission. William Thompson is said to be recovering ; his tribe, formerly the finest in the colpjuy, has been decimated by the war, and now numbers only some 200 men. The garrison at Taranaki has been doubled and preparations made for any attack of the rebels. It is, however, extremely probable that the defection of the East Coast natives will show the...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 August 1864

THE LATE MR. CHARLES J. FAIRFAX. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 August 1864
THE LATE MR. CHARLES J. FAIRFAX. THE immense power of the Press, for good or evil, is one of the recognised facts of the present age. If, then, that power exists, , it is a matter of public importance that those who control it should be men whose influence shall have a beneficial effect on the social and moral well-being of the community in which they live. The good that they do will live after them. The loss of such men is in every respect a public bereavement. There has never been connected with the press of these colonies, one whose career promised a brighter future, or whose personal worth rendered him more fit to control the influence ' THE LATE MR. CHAS. FAIRFAX. (FROM PHOTO, BY MR. DALTON.) the leading journal of Australia, than the lamented gentleman whose portrait we present to our readers, and whose accidental death on the 28th December last, at the early age of thirty-five, created so profound a sensation in this city. Nor was the expression of regret confined to this cit...
DUCK SHOOTING ON THE MITTA MITTA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 August 1864
AUSTRALIAN SPORTS - DUCK SHOOTING ON THE MITTA MITTA. DUCK SHOOTING- ON THE MITTA MITTA. "KANGAROO hunting is not the only amusement that Australia -offers to lovers of field sports. The disciples of Colonel 'Hawker wffl jind plenty of exercise for their Mantons. ..or . Westley Richards, as in almost every part of the country a good shot .can secure a very fair bag of game. A few years ago large Hocks of duck might be met with iu the vicinity of this city, but the increase of population and traffic has now driven them to more secluded districts, where their haunts are unmolested, save by an occasional sportsman. ; On the Illawarra lakes numbers of these birds, including the wood, black, and musk duck, and the common and painted teal, are still to be found. The Murray and Murrumbidgee rivers and their tribu taries are the resorts of myriads of wild fowl of almost every description ; the hirds are not often disturbed, and the large shallow lagoons and water-holes afford them plenty of...
AERIAL NAVIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 August 1864
AERIAL NAVIGATION. A Mr. Walter Weldon writes in " Weldon's Register of Fact» and Occurrences" a valuable article on aerial navigation. He condemns the balloons that have hitherto been made, and insists that they ought not to be spheroidal, but more or less, fish-shaped, or, in other words, that they ought to be flattened cylinders with paraboloidal ends. He contends that such a. balloon could be propelled by a motive force, for the production of which we have abundant means at command, and bases his. statements on the following established facts : " 1st. The weight of a cubic foot of hydrogen is 36 "5 grains,, and that of a cubic foot of atmospheric air, 523 grains. A cubic foot of hydrogen will, therefore, sustain in the atmos- phere a heavy body weighing 486 '5 grains, being the difference between its own weight and that of the volume of air which it displaces. There *e 7,000 grains to the pound avoirdupois,. and 14*5 times 486-5 is 7,054'25. Consequently, 14| cubic feet, of hydr...
NEW PUBLICATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 August 1864
, NEW PUBLICATIONS. "SPRING LIFE LYRICS."-In a neat little volume bearing the above title, Mr. J. Sheridan Moore presents his poems to the public, ¡and we cordially welcome , the work as an addition to our Australian literature. Many of Mr. Moore's poems are indicativè of high literary ability, and entitle their author^ to take frönt rank amongst those who are giving to Australian poesy something more than the mere fugitive chai'acter it has hitherto possessed. We trust the sale of the work will be such as to encourage the author to further efforts. "ONLY OF THEE."--We have received a new musical com- position, by Mr. F. S. Wilson, entitled " Only pf Thee." The libretto is good, and the melody pleasing. Messrs. Elvy & -Co. are the publishers.
SYDNEY HARBOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 August 1864
SYDNEY HARB0ÜE/ /U^¿!"'* » ; I IN April, 1770, Captain Cook, sailing northward from Botany Bay, saw I I a . singular fissure, about a mile wide, in the bold freestone cliffs which form the coast line, and, considering the place to be merely a boat harboiuy^gave to it the name of the seaman then on the look out at the mast-head-hence its designation, Port Jackson. It was not, how- ever, till some years after Cook's discovery that the harbour was entered and explored by Europeans. In 178S, Captain Phillip, who came out in charge of the first convicts, first examined its shores, and finding the position moi'e suitable than Botany Bay, decided on forming a settlement, and accordingly removed his head quarters to the shores of Sydney Cove. The entrance to the harbour lies between what is commonly called the North and South Heads, which rise perpendicularly from the water to a height of about 200 feet. Once within these portals, the com- bined navies of the world might ride out safely, in...

EDUCATION IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 August 1864
EDUCATION m NEW SOUTH WALES. I THERE have been occasional displays of something like a be- coming sense of the deep interest of the country in the advancement of Education. Once or twice this subject has /been put forward as the great question on which the attention of the people and the Parliament was to be concentrated. But hitherto, either no scheme fitted to enlist general confi- dence has been devised for the extension of Education through- out the colony, or political and religious sectarianism have interposed insuperable obstacles to the adoption of' such a -scheme. In a fit of munificence the Legislature, fourteen years .ago, founded the University of Sydney, the operations of which were commenced in 1852, and about £300,000 has been devoted to the building of the University and the affiliated Colleges, besides the annual amount of £5,000. It might have been supposed that such liberality in providing the means of the highest mental culture for a few of the sons of the wealth...
