FORGIVEN: A CHRISTMAS STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873
FORGIVEN : A CHRISTMAS STORY. BY F. WESTBURY. IT was Christmas Eve ! The day had faded into a calm, still, beau- tiful evening, the intense heat having given place to a delicious and invigorating coolness. People who remained at home had thrown open their doors to admit the refreshing breeze, and the chance passers-by, looking in, caught glimpses of good things laid out ready for the morrow's festival. Here, at the Antipodes, we had no snow, enfolding the landscape like a vast winding sheet ; nor yet the falling snow-flakes that covered the frozen rivers, streams, and pools ; but a bright, warm, lovely night, such a one, perchance, as the shepherds of old expe' rienced when they saw the glorious star appear over the plains of Bethlehem. The streets of Sydney were crowded, as if its tens of thousands of inhabitants were in- tent upon doing justice to the time-honoured season. Clerks were pushing their way home- wards, after being detained later than usual at their several places of b...

CHRISTMAS-DAY IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873
CHRISTMAS-DAY IN THE BUSH. IT was the first month at a new station on the Murrumbidgee that I went up to help Jack Martyn to establish. Jack was a cousin of my early frieud Phil. Paginton, we used to call him Betty Martyn, because before he grew colonial, he would black his boots and wear gloves. He was a capital fellow, fourth son of a parson with eight children and £300 a year, and an Irish dean's daughter for a wife. Jack had been sent out in.a hurry, on being suspected of an inclination to demean his family by marrying the very pretty daughter of a rich pawnbroker, at three days' sight, to the intense horror of his mother and his aunt, Lady O'Leathery, to produce a second edition of the dangers between the matrimonial Scylla and Cha- rybdis. It was Christmas Eve, and hotter than usual at that time of the year ; we sat oppo- site each other iu the lightest possible costume, dusty, and rather disconsolate. " Well, Jack," said I, "this is a pleasant look-out for Christmas-Day-no dr...
Literature. BOB WYCHERLEY'S DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874
literature* BOB WYCHERLEY'S DREAM. BY F.- S. WILSON. J "-1 speak Of what I know, and what I feel within." WORDSWORTH. IT was Christmas Eve-Iwon't say how long ago, because the time is immaterial, but that it was in Australia, I have no objection to tell. Christmas Eve, in that land of sunshine and gold, where the weather, at this parti- cular season, instead of making Christmas a time of ice and snow, and freezing the very avenues of love and charity, opens, as it were, th-s pores of good humour, and brings out your better feelings in an atmosphere where- the thermometer stands at 92 in the shade 1 Christmas Eve in Australia* ! and everyone seemed going to market, as if life and death depended on the quantity of eatables pur- chased on that particular evening-people crowding and jostling up George-street, with huge baskets on their arms-baskets which it appeared almost impossible to fill, and an entirely hopeless task for their owners to cany them home after they were filled. But it...
A RELIC. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874
A RELIC. A quaint, old-fashioned common thing it was, And scarcely worth, at best, an English pound, A trifle worn, too, dull from long disuse, A homely toy which few men now would choose > To wear, or treasure up as years go round. A simple ring of gold, marked on its face With tiny flowers, forget-me-nots and such ; With underneath a childish legend writ, So plain that age had hardly injured it, Or blurred the sharpness of the letters i much. I In time of want it might have purchased me A meal or two, a place to sleep at night ; And yet its loss caused bitter agony Put worlds of space betwixt my love and me Called up a gloom that shut me from the light. a A trifling loss-a silly cause for grief ; But, ah ! 'twas all my wealth,-the only thing Remained to me of her whose dreamless sleep Began so soon, a charm I hoped to keep Till I, too, slept-my dead wife's wedding ring. Whilst it WAS mine I knew not half my loss : A reverent touch, as told in Arab tale, Would give the senseless...
DEATH OF THE CELEBRATED BULL, "IMPERIAL PURPLE." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874
DEATH OP THE CELEBRATED BULL, "IMPERIAL PURPLE." WE regret to announce that Mr. W. Lamb's great bull is dead. He got injured some months ago, but recovered sufficiently to per- form duty until recently. While at work, j he slipped, lacerated some tendons, and broke ' the leg bone, which set up inflammation of the joint. Although his owner did not ap- j -prehend immediate danger, he died shortly ' afterwards. " Imperial Purple " was bred j by Mr. M'Dougal, of Victoria, and was a descendant of the pure Booth family, there- j fore, a colonial bull, and, although never as much liked in the ring as his shorter legged compeers, had, nevertheless, a fashionable style, and softness of touch, not equalled by any other animal of his tribe. His sons have proved themselves equal to all the imported, and better than any other animal south of the equator. We have never seen any parent with such a large family of first-class pedi- gree animals : the fineness of their touch surpasses that of any an...

THE AUSTRALIAN OINTMENT "Patented," of a pure green colour, MADE FROM THE WILD PLANTS OF THE COLONY, AND GUARANTEED FREE FROM ALL POISONOUS QUALITIES, STANDS UNRIVALLED.

SORE EYES are cured instantaneously. In all cases the immediate relief from pain is really miraculous. STIFFNESS OF JOINTS is got rid of by one ap- plication. BUNIONS are soon removed.

" I had a severe bum on my hand, caused by acciden- tally taking up a red hot iron, the pain was most ex- cruciating and I could get no relief until I applied the AUSTRALIAN OINTMENT, which gave instant ease, and in a day or two perfectly cured me. to my extreme joy, as I could not afford to lay up. I consider it my duty in consequence to add my testimony...

ENCOUNTER WITH A KANGAROO. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874
ENCOUNTER WITH A KANGAROO. The kangaroo is naturally a timid animal, and seeks safety in flight at the sight of man. Even what is known as an "old . man " acts upon the principle that discretion is the better part of valour, and generally heads the stampede in the event of a pur- suit. At bay, however, like the stag, he is a very ugly customer to encounter, and none but the best trained dogs, or most courage- ous and experienced hunter, can approach him. Our sketch represents a kangaroo in this extremity, and his mode of punishing his enemies. The incident depicted occurred about two weeks ago, not far from the Murray River. Mr. T. Wallace, of Kilfera, and two neighbouring farmers, named Alexander Dowd and Robert Montgomery, were out kangaroo hunting, and tho dogs started a regular "boomer," about seven feet in height, which they soon succeeded in sticking up, but were not game to attack at close quarters. The men dismounted to procure saplings to despatch it, and Mr. Wallace being ...

THE LATE W. J. T. CLARKE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874
THE LATE W. J. T. CLARKE. Mr. William John Turner Clarke died on the 13th of January, after a comparatively short illness, which was simply the result of the decay of nature. He was in his seventy- third year, and though suffering lately from paralysis in the lower extremities, retained his intellect clear to the last. The deceased was in every respect a self-made man. By his natural shrewdness, his enterprise, busi- ness tact, and habits of frugality, he may be said to have realised Dr. Johnson's idea of potentiality, of being rich beyond the dreams of avarice. His father was a brewer and farmer, living in Somersetshire, and the subject of this notice was born in London, where his parents were on a visit in the year 1800. He may thus be said to have sprung from the yeomanry class of England ; and certainly throughout his long and active life he evinced those sturdy and persevering &nbsp; qualities of mind which have in all parts of &nbsp; &nbsp; the globe, a...
CAPTAIN ROSSI AND THE GOULBURN VOLUNTEERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874
CAPTAIN ROSSI AND,THE GOULBURN VOLUNTEERS. WHEN the Parliamentary annals of New South Wales are fairly written, amongst its causes célebre no doubt the case of Capt. Eossi, citizen-soldier and War-office disciplinarian, will have prominent place, and the public importance it has been made to assume will be properly accounted for and explained. At the present time it is difficult to imagine why such a trivial matter as this continued quarrel be- tween an elected volunteer officer and his company should occasion whole nights of debate in the Assembly, or be made a party question by the Government and its supporters and the Opposition. From being purely a matter of departmental inquiry and settlement, in no wise affecting the interests of thc country, what is now referred to as the Rossi " nuisance " has been agitated in such a manner that at last it has assumed a significant appearance. As the history of the case is so.fresh to the public, it is only necessary to recapitulate the main...
" GOLD AT LAST." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874
" GOLD AT LAST." WHAT a world of meaning is conveyed in these few words 1 It is only those who have had some experience of the goldfields, and have been made practically acquainted with the joyous anticipations and dissapointments, the long struggle with what at times appeared superhuman difficulties, and the triumphant issue of the labour perhaps of years, that can ;' fully realize their significance. Here we have two miners, excellent specimens of their class. One holds a lump of quartz, in which he detects traces of the precious metal. He is calm and collected, and, considering the im portance of the discovery, one would think looks extremely cool. His companion, how- ever, evinces greater interest in the quartz specimen that has just been removed from the side of the tunnel. Time was when a find of this kind would have driven a mau half mad with ecstacy ; but since the opening up of quartz claims and the carrying on of mining operations by means of large co-opera- tive companies...
SPENCER'S MECHANICAL MUSEUM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874
SPENCER'S MECHANICAL MUSEUM. THERE has been no lack of attendance at the theatres this month, consequent upon the arrival of intercolonial and country visitors who have flocked to Sydney to enjoy the Christmas holidays, and witness the performances of the All-England Eleven and our own cricket teams. Spencer's Museum, notwithstanding the attractions else- where, has been nightly thronged with crowds of pleasure-seekers, who eagerly inspect the nume- rous scientific and mechanical wonders with which it is filled. The model of the great Mount Vic- toria Zig-zag is an object of universal interest, every detail in this vast engineering work being so faithfully reproduced in miniature that visitors from the Western districts experience no difficulty in recalling that portion of the scenery through which they passed on their journey to town.
OUR ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874
OUR ANNIVERSARY. FEW years have opened so auspiciously for New South Wales since its discovery and foundation as the present one, which has commenced its course surrounded by many cheering circumstances, public and private, not- withstanding the several transpositions of individuals and fortune which are included amongst the experiences of the last twelve months. In colonial life, a single year is often long enough to encompass the birth and solid growth to perfection of most important enterprises, complete revolutions of governmental policy, and the inauguration and practice of new systems which are intended for guidance through future times. The year just ended has witnessed its full amount of change, both in the community itself and amongst the units who compose it ; but, on the whole, it may be reckoned to have been a period of general prosperity. Eighteen hundred and-seventy-four has ushered in the eighty sixth anniversary of New South Wales, and few people will deny-although t...
