YACHTING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

THE arrival of large vessels at this port is of such every clay oe-, curren.ee as to be without novelty, but instead of some marine leviathan we have to record the arrival of the smallest vessel that J8*; ever made the passage from England to this port-we refer to the fine iittje cutter yacht Vivid, which arrived here on thc i -u v from tlie Mersev- The Vivid is a very handsome vessel »mit aboiit four years ago by Hatcher (the builder of the v\ nynot Phosphorus, Phrynne, and other crack clippers), and was purchased in England for Mr. S.

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. The five natives who murdered Mr. Rudd have been executed near the scene of the murder. The prisoners were conveyed there from Geralton in a spring cart. The Perth Inquirer thus describes the scene :-"On Saturday, at daylight, every one in the camp was astir, preparing for the solemn duty about to be performed, and at 6, the police and pensioners being under arms, the executioner pinioned native. No. 1, who was then escorted in the cart by the police to the place of execution. The culprit stood up, one rope was put round his neck, and' a second round his 'waist, by which he was hoisted about nine feet from the bottom of the drays ; the Sheriff then gave the word to 'let go,' and at 13 minutes past 6 the first native murderer that was executed in this district hung by the neck until he was dead.

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

I ? TASMANIA. The Church of England Synod met at Hobartown on the 2Sth ult. ; the Bishop of Tasmania occupied the chair. Frith's, picture, « The Derby Day,' has been on exhibition at the Hobartown Museum, and proved a great attraction. Mr. J. H. Westbrook, for many years manager of the Bank of Australasia, Hobartown, has recently been removed from office by order of the London Board. The only reason for thus treating a servant of twenty-seven years' standing being, that the bank has lost heavily by late failures. An extensive fire, the work of an incendiary, occurred on the morning of the 21st ult. at Ellinthorp Hall, whereby the whole of the barns, woolshed, and granary were destroyed. A telegraph station was opened at Ross on the 24th of March. Mi*. Hargreaves is exploring for gold in the Hellyer River district. The Campbelltown Grand Annual Races are to come off in the beginning of May. The Governor and suite returned to Hobartown on the 16th ult., after a lengthened tour in the ...

THE EIGHT HOUR SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

Il Country Sitbscribers and Purchasers are requested to take I notice, that if this Paper is discontinued to Agents I through whom they may get their copies, it will be ! because non-payment in a few instances has rendered ¡ such discontinuance necessary. I THE EIGHT HOUR SYSTEM. I THERE is nothing more humanising than the influences of Home. I Even the most debased may be raised in the social scale, and I the most brutalised be soothed into gentleness by the action of I Home feelings and sympathies, and by the endearment of family I ties and affections. A large proportion of those who are now I plunged in misery, vice, or crime, owe their abasement in no ¡ § small measure to the absence of the many happy influences and I tender associations that cluster round the social hearth. An I unhappy or uncomfortable home drives forth from it those who I seek it for rest and repose, and forces the I parent to the public-house, and the child to I evil associations. No man who ...

THE REV. JAMES R. THACKERAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

THE EEV. JAMES R. THACKERAY. We present our readers with a portrait of a deservedly popular minister, whose reputa- tion and labours are not confined to the formal limits of his parish, and who, by . simple honesty of purpose, has won the re- spect of all classes in the Hunter River Dis- trict, and in his former pastorate at Victoria. Mr. Thackeray is a native of Yorkshire, Eng- land, where he was born in 1827, and gradu- ated at St. Bee's College, Cumberland, in 1851, and the same year was ordained by the Bishop of Manchester to the curacy of St. Paul's, Preston, where he remained until 1854, when he emigrated to Victoria, and was the first Church of England clergyman ap- pointed to the now extensive town of Bal- larat. In 1856 he removed to this colony, and after settling in the diocese of Newcastle was inducted into his present incumbency at Maitland. When he arrived he found the place without schools, church, or any of that delicate parochial machinery so invaluable to a clergym...

ST. MARY'S CATHEDRAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

ST. MARY'S CATHEDRAL. JLHE Roman Catholic Cathedral of Sydney is situated in College street, faciug Hyde Park, and immediately adjoining the suburb of Woolloomooloo, which it overlooks. It is the largest and most expensive ecclesiastical building in the colony. It owes its erection chiefly to the indefatigable exertions of the late Father Therry, by whom it was first suggested, and under whose auspices the foundation stone was laid in 1820 by Major-General Macquarie, then Governor General of the Colonies. For several years the work progressed very^slowly, indeed, strictly\ speak- ing, it is not yetjwholly completed. The build- ing is in the form of a cross, and is composed entirely of brown free- stone. The architecture is purely Gothic, and is a very fine specimen of that order. The prin- cipal entrance to the building is through the centre door, leading directly into the nave, immediately under the great western window. Finely-carved statues occupy two niches on either side of the...

ATTEMPTED ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

ATTEMPTED ESCAPE. fr At one of the late sittings of the Goulburn Circuit Court a young man, named Laurence Cummins, was convicted of bush ranging, and sentenced to fifteen years' hard labour on the" roads. While being forwarded down to Sydney, he successfully feigned sickness, together with one Henry Thompson, under sentence for the robbery of the Mudgee mail. About ten o'clock at night the coach arrived at the Bargo Inn, and Sergeant Green and Constable Malone went inside to have a cup of tea, leaving n_"+o1-.lzia Mans finn ' \JV u«»» Marshall in charge of the prisoners. Shortly after, Cummins sprang out of the coach, nimbly leapt over a high fence, and escaped into the bush. Marshall fired four shots at him, but the night was dark, and none of them took effect, so at this time it seemed the escape would be effected. Ma- lone and Marshall re- mained to continue the search, while Green and Moss came on. They soon came across and secured the man, afterwards he was lodged in the Bargo...

CHAPTER II. THE LAWYER AND HIS CLIENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

ClIA-l'TEH, II. TUB LAWYER AND HIS CLIENT. " Hadst not tliou boen bj', A fellow by the hand of Nature marked, Quoted, and signed to do a deed of shame, This murder lind not come into my mind." ' Jacob Foggleton ' was the name inscribed on a little old brass plate, which ornamented the blistered door of a house in Clibb's Court. The paint had contracted and gaped, leaving slimy-looking cracks all over the door, like the various intersections of a map, or as if some bewildered snail, of convivial habits, had lost his way while coming home from an evening party, and had wan- dered about without the remotest possibility of ever finding it again. Oh! a charming door was that for a lawyer's office! where the savage iron knocker always seemed out of humour with itself and everybody else, taking delight in sticking up stiff in the air, and suddenly coming down on the tips of your fingers . with the vengeful snap of à nutcracker ! And a jolly companion Avas that squinting keyhole, which look...

POLITICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

" POLITICAL. The estimates for 1805 have been laid before Parliament, from which it appears that the sum appropriated last year was £1,429,873. The sum to be voted this year is £1,434,600. The only reduction visible on the face of the estimates is in the loan ' account. Last year, the expenditure provided for by loan was £670,026. This year it is to be only £185,400. The estimates of the Colonial Secretary's Department show a reduction of £14,523. There is to be a heavy reduction on the item of police -from il72,881 to 152,325-effected mainly by a reduction in the strength of the force. The gold escort service is also reduced from £8,000 to £7,200, and the sum to meet unforeseen expenses is reduced £1,500 less than last year. The grant in aid of public institutions is to be reduced from £3,275 to £700. The charitable allowances are to be reduced from £30,643 to £21,993. In the department of justice there is an increase of £2,000.^ The Treasurer's department shows an increase from £2...

THE REV. JOHN GRAHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

THE REV. JOHN GRAHAM. 1 THE period is not far distant since, rn commercial as well as religious circles of the mother country, the generally received opinion was that anything would do for Australia, and in too many cases this idea was acted upon ; but we are glad to perceive it is fast being dispelled amongst the former class by dearly bought experience, and in the latter, by the more earnest recognition of the claims of the Australian colonies upon the sympathies and assistance of the christian churches of Great Britain, who are weU able to spare some of their talented evangelists, for whom a mighty work awaits. Many of our readers are aware that about three years ago the Rev. Mr. Cuthbertson, pastor of the Pitt-street Congregational Church, obtained leave of absence to visit England, on account of the ill health of his wife, and for two years the congregation were rninistered to by pastors of various churches throughout the colonies, until at length Mr. Cuthbertson having resigne...

THE YAN YEAN RESERVOIR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1865

ALBAN 7, WESTERN AUSTRALIA. THE YAN" YEAN RESERVOIR, i sso city in tne southern .Hemisphere, and very few of the Nor- thern, can boast of as fine a supply of water as that provided by the Victorian Government for the use of the citizens of Mel- bourne. Viewed from a sanitary point of view alone, it has been of incalculable value, and to its copious use may be attributed the absence of miasmatic and other diseases indigenous to all low " lying tropical cities, and which, in the absence of efficient sewer- age, would be certain to prevail in the capital of Victoria and its suburbs ; a great saving has also been effected in insurance by the diminished risk of fire. Melbourne was for many years supplied from the River Yarra, until the drainage from the contiguous suburbs, and the refuse from various manufactories along its banks threatened to render the water too impure for human consumption, and it was de- cided to provide a supply of purer water from some place of YAN YEAN RESERVOIR, ...
