VIEW OF WOOLLOOMOOLOO. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1864
VIEW OF WOOLLOO- MOOLOO. THE City of Sydney, which, according to the Police Act of 1833, com- prises the whole of the lands contained within a "line drawn from the head of Blackwater Swamp to Rushcutters Bay, and thence to the waters of Port Jackson," has of late been so sub- divided under the pro- visions of the Munici- palities Act, as to lead persons unacquainted with the city, to suppose that Woolloomooloo is a distant portion of the suburbs, instead of an integral part of the city proper. Daring the past few years Woolloomooloo has progressed rapidly from the few residences which ten years ago lay scattered between the South Head Road and and the Bay. It has risen to a densely in- habited locality. The situation is all that could be desired, and the only drawback to its position has been the miasmatic vapours arising from the drainage of the district being spread over the swampy shore of the harbour; but this complaint will soon be remedied by the ' tabooed ' ground being fille...

WATERFALL IE SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1864
WATERFALL IE SOUTH AUSTRALIA. THE scenery in. the colony of South Australia is in many respects the, most beautiful of any portiqn of the continent. We present to the readers of the 'News' an illustration of a Waterfall, situate on what is called the Grand Creek, near Adelaide; and some idea may thus be formed of the wild and singular, beauty pf some of our Australian forest views. Palling over a succession pf terraces or steps, the thick foliage of the shrubs which bprder the margin of the stream to its very edge, the gaunt bare gum-trees which likewise rear their stately limbs upon its banks, the waterfall tumbling over a large boulder of ironstone rock with deafening roar,-all combine to present one of the most picturesque and romantic scenes in the colony. The view is a faithful representation of the Waterfall, which is one of the ' sights ' in the neighbourhood of Adelaide. ll WATERFALLS, SOUTH AUSTRALIA. -[SEK PAC« 7 ]
BLACKS VISITING AN OUT-STATION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1864
BLACKS ViíáiTING: CUT-STATIONS. Î BLACKS VISITING AN OUT-STATION. XT_! i isEw arrivais, and even many residents of Sydney whose know- ledge of the aborigines is limited to seeing a half drunken blackfellow in the streets, or being persistently dogged by one of them for 'white money, massa,' must have a very low opinion of the race. It is hardly fair to judge of them by the specimens we refer to, who have been rendered more degraded by the vices imbibed from the white race. The aborigines only require proper treatment to be made use- ful for something more than mere savages. On many of the ! distant stations they form valuable assistants to the settler, either as stock-riders, or labouring about the home station. There are, however, numbers of them who will not content themselves in any fixed spot, but wander about from station to* station, selling or bartering boomerangs, spears, and other rude implements, for food or tobacco. When their rounds of visits terminate they return to the...

OUR COLONIAL INSTITUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1864
' ' OÜBrCOLONlÄir INSTITUTIONS: Ii^our lastiis3ue we promised to give some authenticated particu- lars, in the present number of the working of the Australian Mutual Provident Society, which for usefulness and magnitude of, operations, may now he said to occupy the very highest position. When we consider that only three-quarters of a century ago, the shores of Port Jackson had never been trodden by the foot of the white man, that about fifty years ago, within the memory of many colonists now living, there were no chinches in the land, no roads to the interior, no city properly aligned, no ship- ping belonging to the port, and only two or three in a year, laden with the refuse of home society, arriving at all, and after a/voyage of six or more months ; no charitable institutions, no banks, or monetary associations. When we consider this and compare it with what we seo to-day, the change is marvellous. Here we have steam fleets, the property of colonial capitalists, of greater tonnage...
THE 'PITCHER' PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1864
THE 'PITCHER' PLANT. THESE trees are generally found in, the vicinity of the. Burnett, Dawson, and', Fitzroy Rivers, where they arrive at full per- fection. They are in height about 15 or 20 feet, with no branches till near the top, where the stem pre- sents the appearance of a gum sapling,, having a white open- ing bark, and leaves; similar to the red gum. The lower bark of tree is soft, and can be easily cut through; the inside of the f tree, when at full growth, contains a soft, pulpy substance, eaten by the aborig- ines, who make canoes, from the outer shell. This tree receives its name from its resem- blance to a bottle ; it grows on rich soil* in the vicinity of dense scrubs, and presents a picturesque appearance.

WILLIAM MITCHELL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1864
WILLIAM MITCHELL. On the 24th ult., the Victoria Cross was presented for the &nbsp; &nbsp; first time in this Colony. The recipient is a seaman named Samuel Mitchell, of H. M.S. Harrier. His Excellency Sir John Young, in presenting the honourable badge, remarked that "it. was awarded for bravery displayed on the 29th of April last, at the Gate Pa, Tauranga, New Zealand." Mitchell, who was one of the storming party on that occasion, seeing his leader, Com- mander Hay, of the Harrier, mortally wounded, disdained to fly with the retreating crowd, and raising Captain Hay in his arms, bore him out of the works under a heavy fire of musketry. One of the lamented officer's last wishes was that Mitchell's bravery, should meet its reward. The presentation was witnessed by at least 10,000 spectators, including all the military in garrison, &nbsp; the seamen and marines belonging to the men of war in port, the Naval Brigade, and Volunteer Force ; and no sooner was the b...
WOOL WASHING AND SHEARING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1864
SHEEP WASHING. -[SEE PAGE 7.] Ç SHEEP SHEARING. I -[SEE PAGE 7.] WOOL WASHING AND SHEARING. THE pastoral interests have long been considered the most important of the colonies, and many an English firm who hardly know whether Sydney is in South Australia, or vice versa, are as conversant with the usual quality of wool in the bales marked with the brand of some large Australian squatter, as the persons by whom it was first packed. In station life sheep shearing is usually the most important event of the year. All around the home station bustles with life; gangs of men known as shearers - migratory in their habits, with their swags on their backs, and tin ' billies' in their hands, are to be found all over the country. The flocks are driven in from the out- stations to the wool-sheds, which are usually erected near a creek, on the banks of which are situated the ' drafting yards,' with lanes leading down to the water, into which the sheep are driven, and a number of station hands, wit...

THE mail coach, was trundling merrily down a hill within andie or twp of Hartley, with a half-tipsy coachman driving! and in considerable danger of a wheel reeling off, or of broken traces, Upon the bos-seat was one of that numerous set of young, up- country gentlemen who, however they may be able to head a regular ring-horn, or sit a buck-jumper and emphatically " make him go it," are not therefore necessarily acquainted with, the management of the ribbons, although, with a firm faith in their own capabilities, they would be ready to " punch his nob" who dared to doubt it-one of those men who have far more of what they call "pluck" than of common-sense, and who con- sider pluck and manliness as identical terms.

"Never mind !" cried Repton, " so it keeps m our hand, wre wont care. We'll may be rust if we don't get practice. So, speak up, noble captain." " Lads !" said Mick, with a roaring laugh, "I want to stick np the priest. I've got a use for his reverence." "Come, though, that's too much of a good thing!" cried one of the party, and the others demurred with more or less vehemence.

THE RECENT GALE. DISASTROUS SHIPWRECKS AND LOSS OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1864
THE KECENT GALE. DISASTROUS SHIPWRECKS AND LOSS OF LIFE. XHE Heaviest gale ever known on this coast set in early on the morn- ing of the 30th ult. The weather during the previous week was un- usually fine and clear. On Thurs- day, the 29th ("one of Saxby's days"), the wind in the morning was southerly ; during the day it shifted to east ; in the evening to north-east. Heavymasses of clouds banked up on the horizon gave in- dications of an approaching change. Early on Friday morning the wind shifted to the southward, and during that day blew in very strong squalls from south-west to south- east, with heavy rain. During Friday night the gale reached its height, and during some of the gusts the pressure registered by the wind-gauge at the Observatory was greater than ever previously recorded at that establishment. , During Saturday, the 1st, the wind moderated a little, and on Siinday died away to a steady breeze. It was' known that just before the gale set in a number of vessels had s...
