VIEW OE BRISBANE. GENERAL VIEW OP BRISBANE. THE daily increasing importance of the me- tropolis of Queens- land is a matter of no small surprise to manywho remarked its appearance a few years ago. It continues to prosper and attract from other colonies some of their most enterprising colonists, who hope for brighter future in the new colony. Our engraving represents a distant view of the city of Brisbane, taken from the banks of the river, and is the first; of a series of views which we shall present monthly.

MESSRS^ LARCOMBE AND PEPPER'S DRAPERY AND FURNISHING- ESTABLISHMENT, BRISBANE. ' THESE handsome and commodious business premises, which have lately been leased from Mr. -Southerden, were erected for him towards the close of, the year 1862 by Mr. R. Scott, and were considered at that time the handsomest buildings of the kind in Brisbane, and up to the present have not been surpassed. It is a well-finished, two storied brick structure, stuccoed' surmounted' with a handsome terra cotta cornice. Its interior arrangements are in every way perfect : the shop is very lofty, fitted with polished cedar compartments ; at its extremity is a raised platform, leading to the Mantle and Millinery Room- - which is fitted and furnished in the most tasteful manner. Returning "" into the shop, we ascend by a handsome Cyprus pine staircase to the Carpet, Furn- ishing, and Wholesale Department, forming one capacious room running the entire length of the build- ing; at the side, but detatched, are the do...

THE HON. CHARLES COWPER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1865

. I THE HON. CHARLES COWPER. I FOREMOST amongst those who have "been brought to the surf ace of colonial politics by responsible government stands the present premier of New South Wales, who now, for the fourth time, has accepted the command of the 'Ship of State,' regardless of the financial quicksands by which it is surrounded, and from which we trust he will safelv extricate it. Mr. Cowper, senior, is the son of the late Archdeacon Cowper, a clergyman whose name will ever be remembered in connection with the Episcopal Church of New South Wales ; he accom- panied his father to this Colony when a boy, and in a few years entered the Government service, from which he retired to enter the Legislature of the day,--the old Nominee Council-where he was the contemporary of Wentworth, Windeyer, Robert Lowe, and others, who have carved their names deeply on the page of colonial history, and, though not possessed of the brilliant oratorical and debating powers of some of his colleagues, Mr. ...

The increasing demand for this j emedy is the most convincing proof of its effi- cacy and value. The following testimonials taken from a number of others, are respectfully submitted to the public. " An advertisement appeared in our last issue stating that Mr. La Roche, chemist, George street, had discovered a cure for the terrible cattle disease, pleuro-pneumonia. A valuable bullock belonging to Mr. Matthew Waddell, Ellisland, exhibited symptoms of the complaint on Saturday last. It was lying down, evidently very ill» and much swollen, and the owner thought it would not recover. However, on seein0, the advertisement above mentioned, he determined to try Mr. La Roche's medicine. The animal did not seem to be affected by the dose until a considerable time after taking it, but we are informed that it gradually came round, an...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1865

NEW ZEALAND. A Gazette published on the 6th lût. contains the first procla- mation issued under the "New Zealand Settlements Act," setting apart certain defined lands for settlement. These blocks are eight in number, and comprise fully one-half of the area lately confiscated. Schedule 1, set apart for military settle- ment, includes the greater part of the land on the confiscated area south of a line passing east and west through the town- ship of Ngaruawahia, including of course within its boundaries the military settlements of Alexandra and Cambridge, and the country around them. The other blocks are of smaller extent, and the Gazette does not notify, as it does in the first-men- tioned one, for what purposes they are set apart. One at Patumahoe contains 701 acres ; one at Pukekohe contains 5,381 acres. There is a large block of 19,000 acres at Pokeno ; and at Taukau, where the land is very rich in quality, an area of nearly 11,000 acres. There are three other blocks, Waiuku north...

BUCHAN RIVER, NORTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1865

BUCHAN RIVER, NORTH AUSTRALIA. THE recent discoveries of Stuart, Burke, M'Kinlay, and Landsbrough, have awakened public attention to the fact that there exist on the northern . shores of ' tnis continent vast tracts of magnificent country, presenting almost unlimited resources, and only 'awaiting some enterprising settlers to turn them to account. Our Australian pioneers are building up new homes in this, hi herto, terra incógnita. Buchan Paver, the subject of our engraving, is situated on the north- ern coast, within the tropics ; its shores are covered with tropical vegetation, the back country is admirably adapted for pastoral purposes, and the climate is very equable.

OUT OF NAZARETH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1865

OUT OF NAZARETH. A QUEER little town among hills and streams, where, under the thrifty, pains taking New England farming, the very rocks had blossomed into gardens, and every little brook had to turn a big mill-wheel. A place tnat might have been poetical, if it bad not been so severely useful ; with skies blue as Italy, and peaks which made you think of Switzerland; and yet a place where no tourist went, and which nobody ever thought of talking about. The site for the little red school-house on the hill-side had been chosen because the land was rocky and therefore cheap, as well as because it was near the centre of the district. By the merest accident it was the most picturesque nook in the whole town. At its back a wood crowned the hill-a pleasant wood, where there was little underbrush, and the school-boys kept all the snakes killed, so that timid girls could go there and gather flowers in spring and summer, and fill their dinner baskets with chestnuts when the early frosts opene...

LAUNCH OF THE KENNEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1865

LAUNCH OP THE KENNEDY. AS a pleasing contrast to the lawlessness prevalent in the ulterior, we haye to record marked progress in the development oí colonial industry, /as evinced by the launch, during the past six months, of two ocean-going steamers, both built' for colonial proprietaries. Uï the two vessels we attach the greatest importance to the Kennedy, because her construction is a proof that the timé has arrived when colonial enterprise follows so fast on the discoveries of the old world that any improvements which are deemed likely to he beneficial are adopted, and carried out without waiting to be informed that we are behind the age. The principle of twin, or double screws, as a propelling power, has been for a number of years considered as useless-:by some thought entirely worthless. About fourteen years ago an American mechanic suggested the combination of screws and paddles, and, assisted by a number of capitalists, be constructed a vessel propelled by two screws and a pa...

EIGHTEEN HUNDRED AND SIXTY FIVE, OR THE GREAT WHEEL IN MOTION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1865

EIGHTEEN HUNDRED AND SIXTY FIVE, OR THU GREAT WHEEL IN MOTION. BY THE WOOLLAHRA. HERMIT. "WHAT an age is this, with its obvious signs of expansion, diffusion, and universality ! Who can anticipate the issues ? They who fain would resist monopoly, root out restriction, and banish exclusiveness, should hold themselves in readiness, if necessary, to fight their way through reverse extremes ; for what if wilder reaction should spring out of ruder agencies ? History shews what incarnate fiends may be nursed in the lap of licentious freedom. Our politicians should duly consider that miscalculation and premature action have often proved fatal to man's best interests. The masses are unprepared to accept of a sudden change to higher destiny. Backs that have been accustomed to burdens acquire a bend, from which they recover with pain and difficulty. Do we argue correctly ? Let the fruits already produced by our boasted elective franchise decide the question. What would they have been, if resu...

ABOUT two o'clock on the 25th ult., a telegram was     received from Cape Otway, at the Melbourne station,   announcing that a large screw steamer, showing no colours, but supposed to be the Royal Standard, from Liverpool, fifty two days out, was then passing, inward bound. Of course the agents were delighted at the supposed wonderful   achievement of their vessel, and the public, anxious to hear the latest news-when by the electric wire came the astonishing intelligence - "The Confederate steamer, Shenandoah, 8 guns, Lieutenant Waddell, commander, has gone up the west channel." This was followed by the appearance of the vessel amongst the shipping in Hobson's Bay, where she   anchored at a short distance from the railway pier, and   immediately after mooring, her first lieutenant was despatched to Toorak, to inform the Governor of her arrival, and ask permission to refit and coal.
