ST. MICHAEL'S ARCH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1864

ST, MICHAEL'S ARCH. This beautiful Arch is situated on the estate of the late Very Reverend J. J. Therry, about three miles south of Broken Bay. As the scenery along. the coast from Manly Beach to the Bay is of the loveliest description, we advise all lovers of the pictu- resque to hire a spring cart from Mr. Miles - who lives about half a mile from the Pier Hotel - and proceed, early in the morning, to Mr. Collins'- house, about thirteen miles distance, so as to be able to inspect this extraordinary specimen of natural architecture, and to return to Manly the same day if necessary. As this excursion may gradually become fashionable, we quote a description of the places on the road from the late Postmaster- General Raymond's valuable work, the "Post Office Directory for 1855." "Seven and a half miles from North Harbour, - Jenkins' house ; the road for the last mile along a level sandy beach. On     the left is Narabeen lagoon. Mr. Jenkins has a snug house h...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1864

VICTORIA. i The elections for the .Legislative Assembly are passing oft ?without excitement. Several of the Ministry have been elected without opposition, and nearly all the other Members elected have been returned on the Ministerial policy. The Crown Law Officers have appealed to the Privy Council against the decision of the Supreme Court in "Regina v. Dalli more," which constitutes the squatters heirs apparent to the public lands until 1870. According to the ruling of Mr. DoAvling, police magistrate at Creswick, it is imperative that when a man is summoned for having an unregistered dog, the Dog Inspector should prove that the animal in question is more than six months old. The following are the rates of carriage fixed for goods from Melbourne to Echuca, per rail per ton :-1st class, 60s. ; 2nd, 78s. ; 3rd, 91s. ; and 4th, 116s. Mr. Edward Wilson has resigned the office of President of the Acclimatisation Society. He returns by next mail steamer to England, where, no doubt, his la...

DEBT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1864

DEBT. THE greatest curse of this land is not, as some imagine, drink, but. debt. There are many per- sons in a position to declare that, among aU their acquaintances, they do not know a drunkard. I believe, however, there is not one who does not know several persons who are in debt, and who' suffer great misery in con- sequence. In whatever rank of society you move, from the very highest "down to the very lowest, you cannot live long without becoming acquainted with men and women who are a trouble to themselves, and to their friends, through owing money. So com- pletely does insolvency pervade ' society, that those who are not in debt are almost as much vic- tims to the consequences as those "who are. What does it avail me that I pay on the nail for every- thing, and owe no man any- thing, when I have relatives, and friends, and acquaintances who are in debt to every one with whom they deal ? They come and carry off the money I have saved by my prudence and eco- nomy ; they come and...

THE PONTOON BRIDGE AT ECHUCA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1864

THE PONTOON BRIDGE AT ECHUCA. OUR engraving represents the scene of the opening skirmish in the Border Customs war-a battle, fortunately, of words only. The Bridge is the property of Mr. Hopwood, the well known proprietor of the hotel bearing his name, situated on the banks of the Murray at Moama.       Mr. Hopwood, a few years ago, seeing the large losses of stock occurring by swimming fat cattle across the Murray, PONTOON BRIDGE AT ECHUCA - SCENE OF THE BORDER DIFFICULTIES.   decided on erecting a bridge at his own expense over the river, and thus afford an inducement to squatters to make Moama the principal crossing-place. The bridge is of a somewhat novel   design ; it has been constructed in such a manner as to involve the smallest possible cost consistent with efficiency, and at the same time to offer no impediment to the free navigation of the river. Both of these objects have been met-the first by build- ing it...

RETROSPECT OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1864

RETROSPECT OF THE MONTH.   THE financial statement recently issued from the Treasury will   not tend to improve the position of New South Wales securities   in the London market. It was to be hoped that at least on one   occasion the balance would be on the right side of the ledger;     but that pleasing hope has been dispelled, and we have the broad fact presented to us that, on the 1st of October last, the   deficit had increased, in round numbers, to £116,000. During   the first nine months of the present year the Customs revenue amounted to £402,575; for the same period last year it was     £509,189; the deficiency (including refunded duties, collected   without authority) being £122,000, but the deficit in this depart-   ment is reduced by an increase in others of about £6,000.   The statement for the past quart...

THIS establishment is situate at the corner of.Market and Lewis streets, two of the principal thoroughfares in the rising townjof Mudgee, and as an instance, of the successful results of private energy and enterprise, will bear favourable ' comparison with similar business premises in. any part of the Colony. . We notice -with great pleasure the improved style, of architecture which "begins to obtain in our inland townships, and are glad to see premises at once ornamental and .durable, superseding the more primitive structures of the interior. The firm in question is one of the oldest established in the. Mudgee district, employ- ing a large number of hands, and, in addition to the premises shewn, and others only partially, depicted in our engraving, have been recently compelled, by the requirements of an extending business, to erect additional stores on the opposite side of the street, of the same solid and substantial; description, and upwards ...

KITTY DAYTON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1864

KITTY DAYTON. AT fifteen Kitty Dayton was beautiful-yes, beautiful-if a classical-shaped head, set upon a white neck, which looked as if turned from a block of ivory, exquisite bust and arms, and a slender figure, whose every motion was graceful and easy, could make her so. Perhaps we might miss from the eyes the depth and tone of expression that would have given life and beauty to a less perfect face ; but be that as it may, she was faultless in form and feature, So thought Frederick Manning at the end of one of his long summer college vacations, when he met her, in his native village. _ ¡ Kitty was an only child. Her mother, a widow in very deli , cate health, clung with all a feeble mother's idolatry to her 1 only comfort. Of course Kitty's faults Avere not regarded with a very searching scrutiny. She was not more self-willed than j most pretty children of lier age ; nor more diligent in her studies, nor more unselfish than could be expected of anindulged, petted, idolised darlin...

LITERATURE. KATE CARROLL'S HUSBAND. A TALE OP THE BUSH. (Written for the ' Illustrated Sydney -News.') [CONCLUDED ÉR05I OUR LAST.] CHAPTER VII. As soon as Mrs. Hugh could be safely removed she was taken to Rosedale, the station of her brother. There slip speedily recovered health, mader the influence of what the doctors firmly believed to be a pleasing hallucination. She still steadily maintained that she had seen her child in the cave, and minutely described his appearance as he lay upon Kate's knee. Mr. Hugh did not dare contradict his wife while she related her tale and ever prattled of hope and coming happiness ; but, in common with her medical attendants, he was inclined to be- lieve that her wandering brain had grasped the tale of Father Dent's exploit, and, fusing it with her own grievous recollec- tions, had conceived with delirious self-conviction the picture which she described with such undeviating strictness. Yet he was staggered as, while day by day her returning health...

! SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Intelligence has been received from the-northern expedition showing the existence of much disorganisation. Serious com- plaints are made against Superintendent Finnis ; an officer will probably be sent up to investigate them. The natives-who are said to be cannibals-have given much annoyance to the settlers, and carried off quantities of stores. Government at once char- tered and despatched the steamer South Australian with re- inforcements, and have applied to the Home Government for a I military force to be sent there.

Situated on the Cudgegong-about midway between the source of that river and its confluence with the Macquarie at Wellington-surrounded by some of the best agricultural and pastoral lands m the Colony, and the centre and entrepôt of many of our earliest and most productive gold-fields, Mudgee may be said to possess within itself every element of material and permanent prosperity, whilst its more immediate site, nestling in the bosom of a wide extended amphitheatre of surrounding heights, affords at once a rich treat to the lover of Nature, and a wide field for the talents of the artist. But a few years back, and still within the memory of many of its hardy pioneers, this interesting spot, now the smiling home of a happy commuuity, was an untenanted wilderness, or, at the most, afford...
