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

LITERATURE. OUT OF NAZARETH. (CONCLUDED FROM OUR LAST.) It was time, she said to herself, with a smile and a blush_ she was almost tNventy-three, and if he did not make haste " the invisible, unknown he," she would be old and faded before he came for her. That- night she passed on the Sound. The next forenoon she reached Riverdale station. The other passengers who got out there marched away, as if each one knew where he was going. She was left nearly alone, when a respectable looking coachman asked if it was Miss Amber, and con- ducted her to a carriage where a middle-aged lady and two little girls sat waiting. It was kind of them, she thought, to meet her. She went forward With a pleased smile on her face that made her lovely. Mrs. St. Clair looked at7her critically. She liked the graceful figure in simple, lady- like traveling garb ; the pale, high-bred face ; the simple yet elegant manner. Sirj congratulated herself. She had not done ill in trusting to her intuitions. She welcome...

ORIGINAL POETRY. BABY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1865

ORIGINAL POETRY. BABY. J BY EDWARD BRANTIIWAYT. SWEET babe, how near my heart you've crept You know not, and may never know ; Cold were my heart if it had kept r Frozen, and felt no loving glow. , Your little feet go prattling past, Making soft music as they fall ; * Your tiny fingers, clinging fast, ^ Though weak, have power to enthrall. How lovely is your angel head, Where silkworms surely spun that-hair Your eyes of blue and lips of red, . . ... Your pretty neck and shoulders fair. But.most, your playfulness beguiles A Your changeful, quaint, capricious airs : Prophetic of coquettish wiles Of lovers' hopes, and lovers' fears. Though ere that day has come, the snow Of time will fall upon my head, I'll wish you well wheree'r I go , May all good gifts on you be shed. Then may there be in you combined * Your charming mother's witching grace ?v Her tender heart, her guileless mind, The iascination of her face. What richer dower can you need- 1 What greater happiness desire ? For then ...

BLACKS ATTACKING AN OUT-STATION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1865

BLACKS ATTACKING AN OUT-STATION. SCENES such as we have depicted have been common enough throughout the Australian colonies, and although we now rarely hear of deeds of violence committed by aboriginals in the settled districts, they are unfortunately still too numerous in the newly settled portion of Queensland, more especially in the district of Port Denison, where, within a few months, several persons have been murdered by the natives. Many persons allege, that in most instances the whites are the aggressors, the blacks merely retaliating for injuries inflicted by the settlers. This may be true in some cases, but we know of several instances in which those who were kindest to the blacks were the first victims ; indeed, it rarely happens that, on stations where the aboriginals are distrusted and habitually kept at a distance, any violence is committed, as a close watch is kept for shem, the station hands go armed, and the sight of a gun is usually sufficient to keep a tribe of bla...

VIEW OF NEWCASTLE. rN point of commerce the city cf Newcastle is the second city of Vew South Wales, ranking next in importance to Sydney. It is situated on the slope of a hiU, on the southern shore of the embouchure of the Hunter River, about seventy miles north of Port-Jackson. Like its great English namesake it owes its position to « black diamond«. ' Twenty years ago Newcastle wa» an insignificant village, with but a single coal mine-that of the A. A. Company, who, enjoying a monopoly, wcr° content with :'o raising 25,000 tons during the year. At that timo the harbour. ?-'>''' was, comparatively, an open roadstead, without oven a single wharf to accommodate shipping ; the town consisted of a few huts, and the military barracks ; tho inhabitants wcrp all dependent upon one mining company, who thus ruled the destinies of the town. This state of things was not destined to continue long. A few enterprising individuals who foresaw what the place might become, consulted together an...

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

NEW ZEALAND. , The intelligence from JN ew Zealand is important. The seat of war is now removed from the province of Auckland to Wan: gauui, on the south-east coast of thè Northern Island. On the 24th and 25th of January an engagement took place with the Maoris at a place called Nukumaru, in which the force, com- posed' of detachments from the 18th and 50th Regiments under Brigadier-General Waddy, sustained a loss of 17 killed and 33 wounded. Lieutenant F. D. Johnstone, 40th Regiment, D.A.A.G. was amongst the killed, and Lieutenant Wilson and Ensign Grant, of the 50th, severely wounded. The .number of Maoris killed and wounded is not known. Twelve dead bodies have been found, and it is supposed, from the care with which the Maoris look after their dead and wounded-, and from the nature of the contest, that there must have been about a hun- dred killed and disabled. William Thompson, surnamed "the Kin? Maker," and one of the most influential of the New Zealand chiefs, has surrendered...

CLEVER CAPTURE OF FOUR DESPERADOES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1865

CLEVER CAPTURE OP FOUR DESPERADOES. . About the middle of February the Queensland police au hori .ties received information that four men, suspected of robb.ng the mail in New South Wales, and other crimes, would likely , visit Brisbane, en route, for the North, where they intended to rob the Peak Downs Escort. Sub-inspector Lloyd, and the de-, tectives under his command, were on the qui vive for the coming men ; and after waiting about a week the quarry was tracked to Turner's public house, at One-Mile Swamp. Having ascer- tained that there were four men in the gang, it became a matter of consideration how to effect their arrest; and as it was pos- sible that if they were arrested singly one at least of he. g.mg might take alarm and escape, it was therefore decided to en- deavour to capture them together if possible, and, accordingly, Inspector Lewis, Sub-inspector Lloyd, Detective Craven, . Ser-1 géant Buckley, and two constables in plain clothes, all of whom were well armed, cros...

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

MUSTERING. Of the various scenes of life io the bush, we know of none more exciting than that depicted in our engraving, and is familiar to all who have ever lived on a station as a red letter day amongst the many monotonous ones which they have passed midst gum tree patches, mallee scrub, sandy ridges, and unpicturesque plains stretching away to the horizon one brown waste unrelieved " by a single tree, rock, or eminence. The term mustering is applied to the collecting of cattle and horses, which takes place periodically. Some stations muster every two months, some three months, and others at unsettled intervals. It is on all occasions a period of general activity-all life and activity, from the proprietor or his representative the ' super,' down to the humblest juvenile that can back a buck jumper, or crack a stockwhip. It generally happens that some of the Rtockmen from the ad- joining stations attend not merely for the purpose of assisting, DU& UISU Ul¡um any DWUJV. bear...
