TWOFOLD BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1864

TWOFOLD BAY. rm subject of our illustration lies about twenty miles to the northward of Cape Howe, and, with the exception of Port j Jackson, is by-far the finest harbour in New South Wales, and 1 seemB destined by nature at some time or other to become a | place of considerable importance, as it possesses all the natural facilities for a great sea port. The unfortunate and lamented Benjamin Boyd was one of the first, if not indeed the only person, who gave proofs of a proper appreciation of the capa- bilities Of Twofold Bay. He found it'a waste, its shores occupied only by two or three huts, situated on its northern, shores, and, after choosing what, he considered a more eligible site on the opposite shore, erected a number of substantial buildings as the nucleus of Boyd Town, and a fine lighthouse to assist the mariner iii making the port. But his untimely death put a stop to his plans for creating a commercial emporium on our southern boundary, and when we visited the place about...

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

OURSELVES. HAVING the strongest reasons to believe thata great many of our readers will be anxious to know what are our prospects, after completing the first six months of our existence, we feel called upon again to bring ' OURSELVES ' before their notice. We shall be brief, candid, and communicative, and hope that what we have to say will justify us in being so. We will not disguise the fact that during this time, we have had many adversities to contend with, most of which, fortunately, were foreseen. The greatest of these, perhaps, is the difficulty of procuring the requisite amount of artistic talent to give our pages that amount of brilliancy which is our aim. Another is what we may fairly call a strong prejudice against the chance of the N*ws holding its ground. This second ob- stacle arises from the repeated failures of similar and previous attempts. The f ollowing is a common phrase in the correspond- ence of our country agents and friends : " People say they will wait and se...

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

QUEENSLAND. James Morrell, who lived for seventeen years with the blades was recently married at Bowen, to Miss Eliza Ami Boss, for- merly of the County Armagh, Ireland.

MURDER OF MR. GEORGE WHITFIED. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1864

MURDER OF MR. GEORGE WHITFIED. ON the evening of Friday, the 4th instant, Mr. Whitfield, the well ' known gunsmith, an old resident of this city and much re- spected, was standing at his shop door in King-street, near George-street, conversing with Mr. Bransgrove, of the Great Britain Hotel, and Mr. Donovan, tobacconist, residing in the same street, when Patrick McGlynn, who is also a gunsmith, and , carried on business in York-street, came up, and, without a word even to indicate his presence, levelled a six-barreled revolver, and shot Mr. Whitfield. The bullet entered his right temple, and passed completely through his brain ; the unfortunate man never spoke, and fell dead upon the floor of his own shop. I The pistol was fired so close to the heads of Messrs. Bransgrove and Donovan, that both gentlemen thought that they were shot, j The latter turned round quickly, seized by the collar McGlynn with i one hand, and with the other secured the pistol, saying. ' 'You have shot me, " t...

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

ROCKHAMPTON. ; THE disastrous rush to the Port Cur- tis diggings which took place in 1858 ? has rendered Rockhampton familiar to thousands throughout the colonies' : ?? who were allured by the fabulous : accounts of the Cansona Gold-fields. Persons who then visited . , it, would now fail to discover any resemblance between the town, and the few sheds and shanties, which were dignified with that 1 name. I Rockhampton, which is situated on the Fitzroy River, about I fifty miles from its embouchure, has, since the erection of Moreton Bay or Queensland into a separate colony, progressed with wonder- ful rapidity, and may now fairly claim to be the capital of ' Northern Queensland. The Peak Downs Gold and Copper minea» . and the settlement of the country districts by squatters, has given ! it a commsrcial importance, second only to Brisbane. Two lines of fine ste merá, the property of the Australasian and Queensland stes m Companies, ply regularly to Brisbane, Sydney, Port Denison. Two s...

CHAPTER VIII. " REPTON, away with you to the top of the rock, and get out the windlass. Hart, make haste and get fresh horses, one for a woman: take them to the rock-you'll do that for a fellow?" said Mick Gannon, hastily, as his rebuffed band galloped away from liosedale, closely followed by the well-mounted pursuers. "We will, captain : we'll help save the girl," the two men answered simultaneously, and turned off at an angle from their main party. The gentlemen paused for a moment,-disputing if they should separate and. send some of their number after those two ; but, suspecting a ruse to weaken their force, they quickly decided against this movement, and, keeping together, continued in pursuit of Mick's party. " You needn't go lip the gully with me, mates," Mick cried to his companions, "it'll only be double danger." "No, no," cried one and all, "we wont desert you," captain : you never left us in a fix, and we wont leave you either." "But why need you go up the gully, captain?"...

PARLIAMENTARY. THE Session of 1S64-5 was opened on the 18th ult. by His Excellency Sir John Young. The speech delivered on the occa- sion was as follows : " HONORABLE GENTLEMEN or THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL, AND GENTLEMEN OE THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY " The late period at which a Session of unusual length closed its labours, and the time obviously required, not only for your reasonable relaxation, but for the accomplishment by the Go- vernment of important departmental changes and economical reforms, as well as the preparation of those measures which are to be laid before you, have prevented my calling you together at an earlier date. "During the recess a beneficial alteration has been made in the mode of keeping the public accounts, and in conducting the business of the Treasury. An intelligible system has been initiated, and is now in successful operation, by which, among other advantages, the state of the public finances can be readily and accurately shown at any moment by an inspecti...

EMU HUNT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1864

EMU HUNT. IN the absence of more legitimate sport, the emu, the largest of the Australian feathered tribes, form» an object of chase amongst the bush- men of the far interior, and a good ruu after an emu is by no means un- interesting or uninviting. A full grown bird stands about five feet high, and gets over the ground with amazing rapidity. The mode of hunting is similar to that of kan- garooing, and requires an equally good mount and swift dogs. Acrosa a level country an emu will, for four ' or five miles, run swifter than either dog or horse, but on being closely pressed it imitates the ostrich, ana, ' thrusting its head into a bush or scrub, becomes an easy prey to the hunter. We have known many in- stances of their capture by stock- men well mounted, who used their whips with as much effect on the . the birds as dogs could inflict. To any cit troubled with omni and not frightened of a 'burster,' an emu. hunt may be strongly recommended : as one of the best cures. SPORTS IN AUS...

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

ST. JAMES'S CHURCH, SYDNEY. OUR Sydney readers, or any person who has visited this city, will at once recognise the view which we present of the oldest specimen of colonial ecclesiastical architecture in the . metropolis-the principal episcopal church in the Colony, and possessing the largest congregation of any church belonging to that denomination. In a new country like ours, St. James's Church has an air of antiquity familiar only to those who have visited other lands. It is situated in King-street, east of and adjoining the Supreme Court. The building possesses few architectural beauties, but is large and commodious. The internal fittings are of cedar, and numerous monumental tablets adorn its walls. The spire, which forms one of the most prominent objects in the city, and one of the landmarks for mariners entering the port, is the finest in New South Wales ; it is a single shaft rising from the belfry, and surmounted by a triple cross. From the interior of the spire a magnifice...
