RELIGIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 September 1864

B E L I Q I O U S. j (I Tlae special case respecting the existence of a trust for the fi Church and School lands, has been submitted to the Supreme jj Court. It is now set -down for trial, and will probably be argued j dilling the present month. It is understood that the defence | will be sustained by the Church of England and Roman Cathohc | bodies. The suit is a friendly one, the nominal parties to it being | the Attorney-General and the Treasurer-the former sueing the ; latter for the proceeds of the estate, on the ground that they I belong to the Consolidated Revenue, and 'the latter resisting on the ground that it is trust property. I The Lord Bishop of Sydney held on the 19th ult. a confirm- J cftàon-at St. Mark's Colleg'ate Schoo1, whsn twenty-two of the scholars were coutirmed according to the Anglican ritual.

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 September 1864

' NEW ZEALAND. Governor Grey and General Cameron have accepted the formal submission of the east coast natives. The maories surrendered their lands and persons most unqualifiedly to the Queen's author- ity. His Excellency, in accepting their allegiance, states that '< the Government would only retain one-fom*th of their land, and promised to release the prisoners captured at Taurangi. This clemency is likely to result most beneficially ; the conquered rebels now feel that their tenure of the land is dependant on then- good conduct, and they are thus more likely not only to remain aloof from any further connexion with the King move- ment, but also to prevent'any others from joining the rebel ranks. William Thompson does not appear to have yet tendered his submission ; he is, however, now comparatively harmless, as his tribe, once the most influential an'd numerous in the island, has been reduced by the war to a mere shadow of what it was. William Kingi is reported to have ...

NATIVE GRAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 September 1864

l\rJ_'llVES' GIL-VES. NATIVE GRAVES. j IN our July number we gave a picture of a Native Funeral; wer> I this month give an illustration of one of their burial grounds. Respect for the resting place of the dead is perhaps the only feature in which the Australian aboriginal approaches to thc customs of civilized communities. The majority of the native tribes bury their dead in an upright or a sitting posture. Sheets of bark placed round the body serve as a coffin ; over these large mounds of earth are placed, chiefly for the purpose of preventing the dingo, or wild dog, from mutilating the'corpse. Some of the graves are .surrounded by sheets of ^ bark, tied together with a kind of 1 rope made by the natives from the fibres of the eucalyptus. Many of the native grave-yards contain a number of these mounds and bark enclosures ; but of late years the * aboriginals becoming scattered, and in most cases dying at a distance from the former home of their tribe, the dead are buried without...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 September 1864

VICTORIA. The cavalier manner in which the Home Government has treated the remonstrances of the colonists against further trans- portation is likely to cause more .important-results than Mr. Cardwell ever dreamed of. The Victorian Ministry have sent home notice by the. last mail, that unless the mail steamer cease calling at Western Australia, the contract will be cancelled in six months from the receipt of the notice. Invitations have been sent to the Governments of the sister colonies, inviting them to a conf erence on the transportation question. Split bank notes .axe in circulation on some of the gold-fields. The railway to Echuca is almost finished ; the whole of the works will be completed by-the end of this month. A miner named Corbett, residing at Ballarat, chopped his arm off with an axe, while labouring under a fit of temporary insanity. Three purses of sovereigns, subscribed by public contribution, have been presented to the Messrs. Dowling and Mr. Grut, for the courageou...

THE NEW POSTAL RATES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 September 1864

TSE NEW POSTAL BATES. I THE decrease of late in the number of letters and newspapers despatched from this Colony per English mails will have been observed by those who watch the Colony's progress or retro-' pression. The June mail contained 24,643 letters, and 31,468 newspapers ; the July_ mail, 19,284 letters, and 20,280 news- papers ; and the August mail, 19,680 letters, and 27,217 .newspapers. The cause of the marked contrast in these figures may be clearly traced to the recent injudicious increase in postal -rates ; and those whose province it was to decide upon the advisability of adopting an increase, must surely have «come to that decision without any lengthy sfoidy of their problem, or they would never have assented to a course likely to produce so great a permanent loss for so small 4i temporary benefit. "We would ask, is it wise for New South Wales, with rivals on all sides, in any way to arrest a cheap .and frequent intercourse with those whose association can con- tribut...

ST. GEORGE'S CHURCH, SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 September 1864

ST. GEORGE'S CHURCH, SYDNEY. THIS handsome edifice belongs to that section of the Presbyter- ian Church designated V Presbyterian Church of Eastern Australia," erected by the congregation that had been formed in this city under the ministry of the Rev. Dr. Mackay. It was commenced toward the close of the year 1858, and completed in the beginning of 1860. It was formally opened for Divine worship in February of that year, by the Rev. Dr. Mackay, assisted by the Rev. Dr. Cairns, Melbourne, and the Rev. J'. A. Campbell, of Geelong. On the departure of Dr. Mackay for . Scotland, the Rev. William M'Intyre, formerly of Maitland, was called to succeed him, and was formally inducted as pastor of the congregation, in February, 1862.

Mr. M'Intyre * became the minister, been reduced by about . £6000. The style of architecture is the ' Ang...
