THE REGATTA AT HUNTER'S HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1865
THE REGATTA AT HUNTER'S HILL. , THE residents of Hunter's Hill-one of the prettiest villages in the vicinity pf Sydney-have for several years ushered in the New Year by a regatta, which has now become one of the most famous of the numerous gatherings of this kind which are ? ll ' 1 ll ll !. /&lt;-¥-» . -r i rm zn". . annually neia on tue waters pt rort Jackson. The affair is purely an amateur one, and all the prizes this year were silver trophies. * , New Year's Day falling on Sunday, the regatta took place on the 2nd of January, and, accordingly, about ten o'clock oh that morning we found ourselves flying along before a stiff southerly in company with at least a score of sailing crafts of various sizes, all bound for Hunter's Hill. The day was all that could be desired for aquatic sport ; the atmosphere was cloudy and cool, there was very little sea on, though a good ' whole sail ' breeze blew steadily all day. We can hardly conceive anything finer than the view presented f...

On Christmas there came to me a letter. Eight years ago that day I had spoken my bridal vows. It was a strange coin- cidence which brought me that letter on this very day. I knew I the moment I looked at the cover that it was from Ered. My heart beat suffocatingly. My hand trembled so I could hardly break the seal ; but somehow I had strength to read its con tents.

ORIGINAL POETRY. SHADOWS ON THE WALL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1865
ORIGINAL POETRY. SHADOWS ON THE WALL. BY P. S. WILSON. WHILE years press on to their misty homme, my soul to their shadow clings As a sea-bird grasps at the passing wave that rolls beneath its 'wings ! For tho' the links of Memory's chain are dim with a thousand tears, My throbbing brain would fain retain a glimpse of vanished years ! The mingled web that the past enweaves I would remember all : Each sun-beam resting on the leaves Each shadow on the wall ! A garden wall-and twinkling buds, in starry clusters shake ; Where the shivering shafts of golden light through bending branches break And the tinkling gush of laugh and shout thro' the merry green- wood darts, As Pleasure's fingers touch, the chords that dwell in childish hearts ! O a selfish prayer from my bosom slips, That ever I might recall The clustering curls and the meeting lips, Now shadow'd On the wall ! A sea-wash'd wallr-that fronts the bay where ships their canvas furl, Where feathery foam-flakes fringe the beach, and...

" Father, I think you told a lie in the pulpit to-day, " said a little son of a clergyman. "Wiry*, what do you mean ?" "Sir, you said, 'One more word and I have done.' Then you went on and said a great many more words. Thc people expected you'd leave off, 'cause you promised them. But you didn't, and kept on preaching a long while after the time was up. " " What is the best guard against an adversary?" said a pupil in the art of self-defence to his teacher-a noted pugilist. " Keep a civil tongue in your head," was the unexpected and significant reply. ' ; (
QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1865
QUEENSLAND. John Corbett, the reputed murderer of Michael .Behan, was tried at the late sittings of the Criminal Court at Toowoomba ; he was convicted of manslaughter, and sentenced to twelve months hard labour. During the last year 15,000 ounces of gold have been shipped from the port of Rockhampton. The arrivals seaward in Brisbane, during last year, numbered 12,246 persons, and the departures 4,943 ; thus giving lis an ad- dition to the population of 7,303. The Rev. Dr. Tuffhell, Anglican Bishop of Queensland, left .for England by the mail steamer Bombay. It is stated that he will return in twelve months, but some persons assert that it is doubtful if he will again return to the colony. Brisbane is to be provided with a suitable place of reception for immigrants. The building is to be erected on the open space in front of the present Government Printing Office, and will have a frontage of two stories to William-street, and three stories to , the river. The Irish residents of Dalb...

THE CORNER. L ^'"3 THE engraving under the above designation is a scene wu won known to all city residents to require any information as to its locality. Those of our readers who are not acquainted wita Sydney may be informed that it represents the corner of George and King-streets, and although it does not by any means give as favourable an impression of Sydney street architecture as many other portions of the city, yet it is, par excellence, the corner round which the human tide rushes in densest volume, and is characterised by greater bustle, activity, and other indica- tions' of a business centre. The centre building-formerly Samuel's hotel-is now the premises of the City Bank, for the business of which the site is admirably adapted.
INTERCOLONIAL CRICKET MATCH. ALBERT C. C. v. MELBOURNE C.C. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1865
INTERCOLONIAL CRICKET MATCH. ALBERT O. O. V. MELBOURNE CC. THE second match between these clubs was played on the new Albert ground in Sydney on the 9th and 10th insts., and the result was a most decided victory for our visitors_a victory so decided in fact as to surprise everybody-the public, the cou querors, and the vanquished. While all who have witnessed the play will doubtless readily admit that the Melbourne men give ample evidence of superiority, still, when last year's campaign is borneinmind, it seems difficult to believe-in spiteof Caffyn having since joined the M.C.C.-that the A.C.C. need have been so thoroughly routed as they have been. Perhaps their previous victory is the main cause of their recent failure. The extra ordinary innings made at Melbourne last year lulled them sufficiently to take the edge off their practice, until the presence amongst us of the Melbourne team awakened them to a sense of the fact that their opponents had wonderfully improved, while they ha...

NEW ZEALAND WAR CANOE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1865
NEW ZEALAND WAR, CANOE. THE New Zealand war canoe, of which we give an engraving, will in a few years become a thing of the past, in consequence of the progress of civilisation, and the readiness evinced by the " natives to imitate and adopt the inventions and improvements of í the white man, and the unfortunate rebellion now progressing, 'r which threatens to decimate, if not exterminate, the Maori race. These canoes are constructed chiefly from the trunk of the Totara hollowed by fire, two streaks or bulwarks being I ingeniovtsly lashed to the hull with flax. The stem and stern are elaborately carved iu a very fantastic manner, and orna- mented with tufts of feathers. The length of some canoes is seventy or eighty feet, and they are capable of containing sixty to a hundred warriors ; they are propelled by short pad- dles, in fine weather, often at the rate of eight miles an hour.
