THE DEAN OF GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874

THE DEAN OF GOULBURN. OüR correspondent baa forwarded us the fol- lowing information respecting Dean Sowerby whose portrait appears on page 5 : " The Very Rev. Wm. Sowerby", Dean and Archdeacon of Goulburn, was boru in the parish of Castle Sowerby, in the county of Cumberland, in the year Í799, and in his hale old age stilt bears a clear and lively recollection of events which transpired at the commencement of the present century, as for instance the battle of Trafalgar and the overthrow of the Austrian armies by Napoleon I. In the year 1809 he was placed under the tuition of the Rev. John Stubbs, then a noted teacher in the north of England, at whose removal from that part of the country the subject of our sketch was con- fined to the care of the Rev. Cyprian Thomp- son, who afterwards became curate of Tam- worth, and whose eloquence so recommended him to the first Sir Robert Peel that he con- ferred upon him the living of Fazeley in Staf- fordshire. One month after the battle of W...

The Month. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874

THE cricketing mania will, we lear, be. pro- ductive of disastrous consequences before it finally subsides. Like tbe cerebro-spinal fever, epidemic in Sydney just now, in its. attacks it considers neither age nor sex. Old. men and children, young men and maidens, each and all exhibit symptoms of incipient cricketomariia, which have become painfully noticeable since the arrival in Sydney of the noDrvictorious All-Eugland Eleven. Whe- ther our " crucial experiment " in the free trade line, by which we have managed to shoot ahead of our Victorian friends, has made our. people vain enough to believe that, notwithstanding past defeats, they may be- come as much superior to them in the game of cricket as in that of politics, it is hard to say, but it is very certain that ever since the Melbourne Eighteen were lucky enough to defeat the flower of England's batters and bowlers in one innings, New South Wales has displayed its interest in the cause of the willow to an almost insane extent.

LOAN SOCIETIES. - The object, with a large proportion of them, is not to lead money at all, but to avoid lending it, and be paid for such avoidance. This derirable end is brought about by an ingenious system of fees and fines. When a poor fellow in diffi- culties applies for a loan of a few pounds, he has to pay the registration fee, say a shil- ling-and the inquiry fee, which is according to the amount of the loan sought, but aver- aging over five shilling's. The applicant will, perhaps, give references to his own friends, among whom he wishes the inquiry to be made ; but this does not suit the so- ciety, who make the inquiries where they" choose, and who very often do not choose to make any inquiry at all, but pocket the fees, and take no more trouble in the matter. When the applicant comes to see how his suit prospers, he is informed that his proposal is declined. Of course, no money is returned, . there is an end of the transaction.

YACHTING IN PORT JACKSON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874

YACHTING- IN PORT JACKSON. THE sketch which our artist gives of yachting in Sydney Harbour is not altogether imaginary. It presents, under favorable cir- cumstances, a well-known craft included in the fleet, which may often be seen at anchorage in Farm Cove ; and which has, on more than one occasion, won honorable distinction in the annual re- gattas of the Sydney Yacht Clubs. In respect of picturesque scenery, no harbour in the known world can surpass Port Jackson ; the natural and artificial beauties of which many hold to equal those of the Bay of Naples. The pretty little sequestered bays and inlets, the pleasant glades with a luxuriant sward, the opening vistas extending to the water's edge, the sloping banks covered with leafy trees, through which may occa- sionally be caught glimpses of handsome villa residences or homely cottages, are to seen on every side. For variety and loveli- ness of landscape it gains in comparison with the approaches to the. Derwent or the grand surrou...

SIR JAMES MARTIN, THE NEW CHIEF JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874

SIR JAMES MARTIN", THE NEW CHIEF JUSTICE. THE Honorable Sir James Martin, Knight, whose portrait we present to our readers in this issue, is a native of Ireland, having been born in that country in the year 1820 ; but arriving here as he did while yet a child, and having resided in the country for the whole of his life without intermission, he may be considered, as regards education, acquire- ments, and experience, as thoroughly colonial. He was educated at the Sydney College, admitted to be in those years the principal I seat of learning in Australia, and which was presided over by Mr. T.W. Cape,whose fatherly care of the pupils entrusted to his charge has been frequently referred to on public occa- sions by our foremost politicians and literary men in terms of grateful. remembrance. When of suitable age, Sir James Martin was articled to the late Mr. George Robert Nicholls, the well-known attorney, who dis- tinguished himself quite as much in political matters as he did in those of...

DYNAMITE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874

- DYNAMITE. JLHE recent deplorable accident at the Impe- rial Hustlers' Mine, Bendigo, by which a digger named May lost his life, seems to give a flat contradiction to the safe qualities claimed for Nobel's " Giant Powder." Ac- cording to the Independent, a spark resulting from the operation of tamping caused the powder to explode with tremendous violence. As a description of how Dynamite is manu- factured and the proper manner of using it may be interesting to our readers, we here give it : " Every one knows what glycerine is-a clear, 'syrupy liquid, sweet to, the taste, and somewhat greasy to the touch. Its scope of employment ranges from the surgeou's dis- pensary to the lady's boudoir. Chemists term it a triatomic alcohol, and it may be derived from fat or tallow by the action bf lime and sulphuric acid. Its properties are many and various, but as they have nb bear- ing upon the present subject, we shall ab- stain from noticing them. If a quantity of nitric acid be added to twic...

FREEDOM TO COMMERCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874

FREEDOM TO COMMERCE. AT last, amidst cheers of rejoicing from the Free-traders and the faintest of protests from that Avell-meaning, but misguided band of politicians yclept Protectionists (properly, interpreted, Obstructionists)-at last a destroying blow has been aimed by our Legislature at the opposifig barrier which for so long made the entrance to our accommo- dating harbour a vexatious toll-gate, and which, by preventing the inflow and outflow of commerce, checked the prosperity of New South Wales for many years. The recent effort to remove some of the obstacles placed by successive Administrations in the highway of our progress has met with such glad recogni- tion on all sides, that the work of demolition commenced may be persevered in to the uttermost limits compatible with the profit- able government of the country, without fear of much solid opposition from the people. In this particular matter our Government has exhibited courage and strength. In the race for colonial supr...

TOWNSHIP OF BLUESKIN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874

TOWNSHIP OF BLUESKIN. THE township of Blueskin, Otago, Now Zea- land, is situated about thirteen miles from Dunedin, on the north road from the city. Placed as it is on level ground at the termin- ation of many spurs', which rise into hills of j considerable height, the most prominent being j Double Hill, an extinct volcano, and the silver j peaks in the distance; a more beautiful i spot for a township could not well have been | fixed upon by the early settlers, studded Í through as New Zealand is with gems of a j like nature, Vilich go to make up the fame for romantic scenery the country so justly is ! credited with. When it is considered that [ only ten years ago (when one of the first j arrivals, Mr. Quayle, settled down) there were no buildings of any description in this now flourishing township and locality, that the ground was all in a wild and virgin state, no public roads, and that provisions had to be packed on horseback from the Í Junction Hotel, on the Port Chalmers road,...

The Eeception Committee ; appointed by the New South Wales Cricket Association, met the visitors at the Heads in the Government steamer Thetis (which had been lent for the occasion by the hon. Minister for Works,) and accompanied them to the A. S. N. Co.'s wharf, where a four-in-hand drag was in waiting to convey the Eleven to Williams's Metropolitan Hotel, at which place arrangements had previously been made for their location. The reception breakfast at Tattersalls Hotel, which was appointed to take place at 9 a. m. was delayed till noon inconsequence of the Alexandra's late arrival, and by the time Mr. Grace and his eleven reached TattersalPs an immense crowd of people was gathered there, who received the Englishmen with cheers and other demons trations of welcome...

CALIFORNIA AND THE PACIFIC RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874

CALIFORNIA AND THE PACIFIC RAILWAY. WITHIN a very few days, now, we may ex- pect the arrival of the first return mail from San Francisco, and with it the news that the steam service of this new route, between the Colonies and England has been so far suc- cessfully carried out that its permanent adoption by our Government may be looked upon as certain. Beside the advantages af- forded us of a rapid postal service, upon which we can depend, and the communica- tion in which we are placed with New Zea- land and the Pacific Islands, the Californian route must prove acceptable to many home- ward-bound passengers, who object to the discomforts of a long sea voyage, while the grandeur of the .scenery through which they will pass, on their way from the western to the eastern coast of America, with the privi- lege of resting, either for purposes of obser- vation, or with the object of recruiting their tired frames on the way, must prove addi- tional attractions. It is to be hoped that the mor...

ST. SAVIOUR'S NEW CATHEDRAL, GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874

ST. SAVIOUR'S NEW CATHEDRAL, GOULBURN.   THE interesting ceremony of laying the foundation stone of St. Saviour's Anglican Cathedral, Goulburn, took place on Thursday, 15th January. The Bishops of Newcastle and Bathurst, the Bishop of Goulburn, the Dean of Goulburn, the Hon. John Campbell, Esq., M.L.C. ; the Rev. A. T. Puddicombe, together with seventeen of the clergy of the diocese, were present, the Metropolitan Bishop of Sydney being unavoidably absent through illness. The clergy and a number of the laity met at the Diocesan Depôt and from thence pro- ceeded to St. Saviour's Church, where divine service was celebrated, the Rev. P. G. Smith reading the service and the lessons ; the choir opening with an anthem, and performing Jackson's morning services. The sermon on the occasion, owing to the unavoidable absence of the Metropolitan, was preached by the Right Reverend the Lord Bishop of Newcastle. At the conclusion of the service the clergy proceeded to the site of th...

MEMORANDA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874

MEMORANDA. IN the Legislative As- sembly, on Wednesday, a message was received from the Governor, ex- pressing an opinion that it was desirable to confer an annuity upon the Rev. Dr. Lang, or other- wise compensate him for his public services. The James Patterson {steamer) was wrecked ?on Masthead Reef at midnight of the 21st instant. If the weather ?continues fine the vessel may be got off at spring tide, and a large portion .of the cargo saved ; but the chances are that she will be abandoned. The Sydney School of Design ¡has closed its ?classes for the present, and the principal's ser- vices have been dis- pensed with. At Maitland the rain which fell on Sunday last caused a flood throughout the district. In some places the water was only one foot less than during the great flood of 1867. Several buildings have been car- ried away, and many iamilies rendered desti- tute ; but no lives have yet «been announced as lost. Train communica- tion is suspended on both sides of the Maitland...

THE DEAN OF GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 January 1874

THE DEAN OF GOULBURN. THE present Dean of Goulburn-better known throughout the country as " Parson Sowerby" -has reached the venerable age of seventyr five years. He arrived in the colony in 1827, when there were only about thirty houses in Goulburn, and may therefore be reckoned one of the oldest colonial residents we have. In his work as a minister pf the Gospel he has ever been remarkable for a great earnest- ness and Christian kindness of character traits which have earned him the respect not only of his own congregation, but also of all the different denominations in Goul- burn. It was to the efforts made by him some years ago that the present diocese of Goulburn owes its existence. In the early days of the colony church-building was a labour of extreme difficultyj and, in some instances, seeming impossibility ; and the * Bev. Mr. Sowerby encountered his full share of the toil attending thc formation- of his district into something like ecclesiastical order. Many a time he had ...
