VIEW OF MpSSMAN'S BAY. ONE of tte most romantic spots on the shores of ' Port Jackson, is that shewn in our engraving. It is a favourite resort for picnic parties and holiday makers, to whom the fine scenery and the excellentV grounds are attractive. The bay is very narrow . and extends from Cremorne Point, nearly a mile inland.- The shores, exceptât one or two landing; 1 places,- are rocky and precipitous. . ' Two very beautiful windows, in stained glass, by Wailes', of Newcastle-on-Tyne, have lately been presented to St. Matthew's Church. Two mailmen, in crossing the Billibong, about a fortnight ago, had a narrow escape from drowning.

';f'" ' LITERATURE. ' THE TELLING TREASURE. ' I CAN tell yon all about it, how much it was, and how I came to get it at last ; but previously to that there is a preamble. It is necessary to give you a little bit of family history, and personal . history with it. -mi My maternal grandfather was named Godfrey Telling. The Tellings are of a respectable family, connected with the Létmenoes and the Informings, and, by marriage, with the French Racon- teurs. He had but one daughter, who married with Adolphus Story. The Storys wore of a good family too-kin to the Rousers, Bouncers, and Tarradiddlcs. I was named af ter both my father and grandfather-Telling Adolphus Story. I was usually called . Dolly, when a boy ; but, from dislike to the abbreviation, I sunk the middle word when I grew older, and wrote my name after the usual way. : My grandfather had the reputation of being quite rich. He had at one time a number of houses and farms, scattered through several counties. They happened to l...

BUSHRANGING IN QUEENSLAND - THE CAPTURE OF FEGAN. - - (SEE PAGE 3.) . . -         THE CAPTURE OF FEGAN, THE BUSHRANGER. THE people of Queenslan may be congratulated on the speedy termination of the bushranging career of the three ruffians who escaped from the Rockhampton Gaol and for a       short tim lived by plundering travellers and the residents of the surrounding districts. The credit for their extermination is due not to the policeforce, but to civilians, and if the same determination to put down crime was exhibited by the residents o the Southern and Western districts of this colony as that which characterized the conduct of Messrs. Jardine, Paton, and Caldwell, we should soon be rid of Ben Hall, the murderer Morgan, and others, whose acts of violence have brought this colony and its inhabitants into unmerited disrepute, and en- abled some of our envious neighbours to cast a stigma on t...

THE CITY OF BRISBANE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 September 1864

THE CITY OF BRISBANE. THE site now occupied by the City of Brisbane was originally chosen for a penal settlement, but in 1842 the district was thrown open for free settlers, and the land was marked off into building allotments, and offered for sale at the upset price of £100 per acre. The progress of the city was at; first very slow, in consequence of the excessive reserye , VIEW OF BRISBANE, THE CAPITAL OF QUEENSLAND. placed on the land by the Government. A much lower rate was charged for land now known as South Brisbane, on the opposite side of the river. À township established by private speculation at Kangaroo Point also assisted to divert settlers from the City proper, and thus, until Separation enabled the Queensland people to manage their own affairs, the interests of the City were sacrificed by the mismanagement of a Government careless and ignorant of its requirements. Brisbane is situated on the Bremer River, about twenty-four miles from its mouth. Vessels of from two to t...

THE LOWER LIGHT, SOUTH-HEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 September 1864

THE LOWER LIGHT, SOUTH-HEAD. OUR Sydney readers will readily recog- nise the subject of our illustration, form- ing as it does one of the most prominent land-marks to the entrance of Port Jack- son. The melancholy loss of the Dunbar first pointed out the absolute necessity of a lighthouse in this position. Soon after, .that disastrous occurrence its erection I was commenced, and it has now been lit j for about four years. The lighthouse is situated on the edge of the cliffs, imme is fixed, to distinguish it from the Upper light, which revolves. It throws its rays directly across the entrance of the Harbour, and by its aid vessels can enter at any time and in any weather. Visitors to the Heads will be well repaid for their excursion by the magnificent view obtained from the top of the Lighthouse; North Head, Manly Beach, Middle Harbour, the lower portion of the bay. and the South Pacific dashing its foam against the rocks beneath, form a panorama of exquisite natural beauty.

THE NEW BRIDGE AT WAGGA WAGGA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 September 1864

THE NEW BRIDGE AT WAGGA WAGGA. THE imposition of the Border Duties has brought the South - Western provinces more prominently before the public. Our Victorian neighbours have completed their railway to Echuca, and will now be enabled to compete with the Sydney mer- chants in supplying a large tract of our territory with merchandise. It was with a view to take advantage of the traffic that would thus arise that a joint-stock Company erected the Bridge shown in our engraving. The structure is one of the most pcfect of the kind in the colo- nies; it presents a very light, airy ap- pearance, and is entirely composed of wood, resting on three piers. The span between each pier is very wide, but due care has been taken to give solidity to the work by cross tiers and longitudinal girders, and, though very heavily tested, the deflection has been hardly noticeable. As a financial speculation the Bridge Company has already proved a success, and with the increased traffic from the Murray to the...
