MOUNT KOSCIUSKO. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1865

MOUNT KOSCIUSKO. MOUNT KOSCIUSKO-native name Munyangs-is said to be the culminating point of the Australian Cordillera. It is situate at the sources of the River Murray, about eight miles on this side of the boundary line between this Colony and Victoria. It is the highest point of the dividing rauge separating the Murray and the Snowy River. Its height is 6.510 ft., as determined by the Rev. W. B. Clarke, the eminent geolo gist. It rears its lofty peaks amidst scenery which is sublime ; and though now merely an object of curious interest, will probably, ere long, become a famous land mark to the ad- venturous miner who must in course of time develope the mineral resources of the tributaries which take their rise on both sides of the range. Mount Kosciusko does not reach to the line of perpetual snow, which, theoretically, is about 8,000 feet above the level of the sea, for the latitude (36 deg. 25min.) in which this mountain is situate.

THE MISSION CHURCH AT LIFU. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1865

" THÉ MISSION CHURCH AT LIPU. THE Loyalty Islands, of which Lifu is the principal, form a por- tion of the Eastern Archipelago. - They are situated in the im- mediate vicinity of New Caledonia, and as might reasonably bo expected, they have been the first to feel the effects nf schemes of aggrandizement which, under the title of colonisa- tion, are being pushed by the French authorities in tho South Pacific. For several years agents of the London Missionary Society have successfully laboured in the Loyalty group. The inhabi- tants, peacefully disposed, neither meddled with their neigh- bours, nor were meddled with, until the arrival of M. Guillain, the present Governor of New Caledonia, whose antipathies have obtained for him a larger amount' of notoriety than usually falls to the share of officials of his rank. The building shown in our engraving is tho Mission Church, which was the scene of the greatest outrages in connecti« n with the French expedition. It was in its. vicinity th...

QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1865

\: ' QUEENSLAND. V*T"-?'" In a letter to the Peak Downs Telegram, signed 'Geologist,' the writer says:-"In exploring the ranges to the east of Sandy Creek, I observed in many places distinct evidence of repeated and violent convulsions, breaking into myriads of frag- ments the crystalline quartz, while the soft and then partially. flexible slate-clay withstood the shocks. The convulsions came from the eastward in their greatest force, elevating the moun- tains in a westerly direction, and causing the waters to flow eastward from this district. As I looked over the ranges to the westward, I saw the evidence of a once mighty river, of the tertiary epoch, which flowed through this district in a southerly direction. In some places it was upwards of half a mile in breadth ; the depth I could not ascertain, though I sunk through the bed twenty feet. From this evidence I concluded that it might be sixty feet or more in depth-in some places I expect it will reach one hundred. This is the pl...

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1865

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. Five aboriginals, recently convicted of murdering Messrs. Bolt and Rudd, have been hanged at Bulter Abbey, near the scene of their outrage. A-staff of Government officers have been despatched to the new settlement lately founded at Camden Harbour by immi- grants from Melbourne. The January mail from England brought positive instructions from the Imperial Government, that no convicts were to be allowed to go to the new settlements in the Northern territory. Advices from England intimate that the Secretary of State will give due consideration to any compensation claims for losses sustained by colonists through the stoppage of transportation. The Governor has commuted the sentence of death passed on John Cargill, convicted of attempt to murder Mr. Harwood, to imprisonment for life. The heat this summer has been very oppressive ; numerous cases of sunstroke have occurred. The total quantity of wool exported from Perth during 1864, was only 2,430 bales. , A public meet...

THE HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY'S SHOW [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1865

THE HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY'S STTHW THE annual autumn exhibition of the Sydney Horticultural Society took place in the Outer Botanic Gardens on Wednesday last. The show was, perhaps, one of the best ever held under the auspices of the Society, and in some classes the exhibits were much superior to anything previously seen in the Colony. We refer particularly to dahlias and verbenas. Some magnifi- cent specimens of new varieties of the former, shown by Alder- man Bloomfield, were much admired, as were six verbenas, exhibited by the same gentleman. Mr. Magill's collection of dahlias was very fine, as were abo those of Messrs. Henderson and Williams. Although not the most showy or attractive, Mr. Patterson's collection of commercial and medicinal plants, were in many respects more important than their gaudy neighbours. In this collection were shown the tea plant, coffee plant, arrowroot, sugar cane, flax, hop vines, black elder, and many botanic speci- mens largely used by the medical pr...

THE ROYAL YACHT SQUADRON MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1865

THE ROYAL YACHT SQUADRON MATCH: THE second annual match of the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron, which took place on the 10th ult., though not so successful as the previous year's, attracted a good deal of attention in the aquatic world. The prize for first-class yachts was a cup valued at fifty guineas, which, it may he remembered, was taken last year hy the 4 Era,' but as Mr. Milson, her owner, considered it was not fairly won, he offered it as a prize for this season's match. Last year, if we remember rightly, there were five entries for this race, but on the late occasion only two vessels, the Xariffa and Peri, started. Tho course was from Farm Cove,, round the lightship, round Fort Denison, thence round a boat* 'J off Curl Curl, aud back to Fort Denison. The race was booked as a certainty for the Xariffa, as the strong southerly wind blowing gave her a groat advantage over her opponent, a vessel of only half her size ; yet there were some who thought there was a chance of the Peri b...

VIEWS IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1865

NORTH BRISBANE, (A. S. N. COMPANY'S WHARF IN FORE GROUND.) I _ VIEWS IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA. INDEPENDENTLY of any interest which is attached to the only portion of the Australian colonies yet cursed by the evils of transportation, the western portion of our continent is becoming of greater importance as its resources become developed. The death.-knell of transportation has airea dy been rung, and within three years England's felonry will seek in vain to find a home between Cape York and the Otway, or from the Lewin to Cape Moreton. Camden Harbour has already been colonised by a Victorian Association, and other settlements of a similar cha- racter will shortly be established in the same direction. The locality best known at present is King George's Sound, the dépôt and coaling station of the P. and 0. mail steamers carrying the Australian mails. The entrance to the Sound ia bold and well-defined-bold, rocky headlands rising up on either side. Mount Gardner, conspicuous on the north ; B...

" I have a confounded engagement. Shall you go, Astley ?" » Yes, I think so," I said, looking at the sea, which, just stirred by a slight breeze, rippled arid danced in the sunlight. «« All right, then. I shall have to bolt in a minute. What an awful row there is this morning !" » The beach is very full, sir," said Dan; " and see, you are in the middle of the crowd." We were not far from the bathing machines ; and on every Bide of us were groups of people, laughing, talking, flirting-all .supremely merry, and not over-careful about modulating the .tones of their voices. The man with the guitar appeared to be thé only person on the whole beach who was not making a .noise. He, poor fellow^ had broken one of the strings of his instrument, and was sitting by himself, disconsolately, trying to mend ...
