TO OUR READERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1865

. " ' TO OUR READERS. ; WE cannot close this, our First Volume, without ex ' pressing our obligations to the Public for the handsome manner in which they have supported our efforts to provide the people of New South Wales with a first class Illustrated Paper. In. doing so we have had to contend with many difficulties which are gradually being . overcome, and it will be our aim to make the ILLUS- TRATED SYDNEY NEWS still more worthy of their favour. To our brethren of the Press we have to return our acknowledgments for the very flattering notices they have favoured us with, not the lea t encouraging of which is contained in one of the English letters from Mr. John Plummer, which appear monthly iii the S. M. Herald. . He says, " The Illustrations given in the ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS afford a better idea of colonial life than all the sketches hitherto published in our pictorial journals." Such testimony as this is highly gratifying, and if our past efforts have been productive of such ...

NATIVE PA AT MAKETTU. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1865

MAKETU PA, NEW ZEALAND. -[SEE PAGE 3.] NATIVE PA AT MÁKETTJ. FROM the earliest period of New Zealand history to the present day it has been the custom of the natives to erect fortified works of defence, which are called pas. These works are of. various dimensions, according to the strength and number of the tribe. They are formed of a double row of palisading, consisting of ti-tree stakes securely fastened with flax. The outer row of sticks, which are sharpened at the point so as to resemble teeth, do not reach to the ground. Within the palisading, and run- ning round the whole length of the pa are traversed rifle pits allowing of flanking fire at right angles. The warriors of the tribe, with the women and children, reside inside the pa in whares constructed of raupo, and generally thatched with nikaw. In our present number we present a sketch furnished to us by Lieutenant Lobby, of the 68th Light Infantry, of a pa at Maketu, on the east coast, belonging to the friendly natives. Thi...

POLITICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1865

POLITICAL. j The Assembly has agreed to a resolution, that the colony shall become responsible for £55,000 a year towards the Panama mail contract. The select committee of the Legislative Council, appointed on the 22nd March, 1865, to inquire into the ' Question of Vacancy,' have agreed, That, in their opinion, the Hon. Alex- ander Macarthur, the Hon. William Russell, and the Hon. ' Francis Lewis Shaw Merewether, have not, within the true ¡ intent and meaning of the 5th section of the Constitution Act, , ' failed to give their attendance in the Legislative Council for two successive sessions of the Legislature of the colony,' inas- much as the sitting of the Parliament from the 18th October to the 9th November, 1864, was not a session thereof, within such intent and meaning. The Elections and Qualifications Committee brought up their ¡ report on the 21st idt. respecting the petition presented by Mr. Asher against the return of Mr. Mate for Albury; The com- mittee declared Mr. Mate t...

THE VICTORIAN REPRESENTATIVES AT THE BORDER CUSTOMS CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1865

THE VICTORIAN REPRESENTATIVES AT THE BORDER CUSTOMS CONFERENCE. THE three gontlemen who represented "Victoria at the recent Border Customs Conference, and whose portraits* we present, are all members of the present Govern mEut of the sister Colony. The Hon. JAMES MCCULLOCH, who holds the important position of Chief Secretary, was born in Glasgow in 1819, and was brought up to mercantile pursuits in the office of Messrs. J. I). Dennistoun and Co., of that city. Mr. McCulloch arrived in the colonies in 1853, as the representative of the firm, and opened a branch house . at Melbourne, under the title of Dennistoun Brs. and Co. In 1854 he entered political life as a nominee member of the old Council, and acted in that capacity until the era of responsible government, when he was returned M.L.A. for Wimmera electorate ; and on the defeat of the first O'shannassy ministry Mr. McCul- loch formed a new one, of which he was Commissioner of Customs, and retained office for about two years.

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

NEW ZEALAND. The. Wanganui campaign has terminated for the present, and the troops ai*e moving into winter quarters. A portion of them are to he sent to Auckland, but there is no doubt .that orders, received by last mail, for the immediate return to England of five regiments will materially alter the programme. Col. Warre has recently taken a new position at Pukemahi, commanding the pass through the White Cliffs. A large party of rebels are reported to be in the vicinity of Tauranga ; fears of an attack are anticipated, and Col. Greer has declined, for the present, to permit the removal of the de- tachment of the 68th, which now forms a portion of the garrison. An effort will be made during the next session of the Assembly to oust the present Ministry, who are. odious in the eyes of the Northern representatives. This is what might be expected, as the Auckland people have so long been accustomed to lord it over the remaining portion of the colony that they feel acutely their importan...

PRESENTATION OF AN ADDRESS TO MR. HOLT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1865

PRESENTATION OF AN ADDRESS TO MR. HOLT. THK recent prosecution of Mr. Holt, for an alleged personation at the Glebe election, was the occasion for the public expression of sympathy and regard, proffered to him on the evening of Monday, the 24th of April. The presentation took place at the New town.School of Arts, the large room of which was densely crowded. T. C. Breillat, Esq., having been moved into the chair, then proceeded to state the objects of the meeting, and remarked that they were met together to testify their ad- miration, and esteem for Mr. Holt, both in his public and private character. In both capacities they had had ample opportunities for becoming acquainted with him, and the interest he had taken in all matters, whether municipal, parliamentary, social, or religious, -was well known. Having remarked upon the improbability of Mr. Holt being guilty of the act alleged against him, Mr; Breillat went on to say, that, in his own mind, he attri- buted the accusation to an ...

MR. THOMAS HOLT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1865

u MR. THOMAS HOLT. MR. THOMAS HOLT,"of 'The Warren,'near Sydney, is the subject of our present sketch. He is übe eldest son of the late Thomas Holt, Eäq., of Harrowgate, Yorkshire. Mr. Holt was for several years in partnership with his father, as wool merchants in Leeds and Berlin, during which time he travelled a great deal as a buyer of wool for his Leeds house, in Germany, Hungary, Poland, and Spain. As the Australian wools were rapidly super- seding those grown on the continent and the peninsular of. Europe, Mr. Holt deter- mined, on his father retiring from business in 1842, to visit Australia, and has been a resident in this colony since his arrival in . Sydney in that year. Mr. Holt retired from business as a mer- chant about ten years ago, but has since been actively engaged in pastoral pursuits, and the improvement of his estates. He has an estate of about twelve thousand acres, within a few miles of Sydney, on which he has expended during the past live years, on labour alo...

THE CUSTOMS BORDER DUES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1865

THE CUSTOMS BORDER DUES. WE are pleased to announce that the border duties' question which for so long a time have been a bone of con- tention between this colony and Vic- toria, and which furnished a standing grievance for our Riverine friends, has been settled amicably, and in a remarkably business-like manner. The Victorian delegates, consisting of Mr. McCullock, Chief Secretary, Mr. Ver- don, Treasurer, and Mr. Michie, Minister of Justice, arrived here on the 13th, and on the 15th a meeting was- held at which Messrs. Cowper, Smart, and Darvall, represented New South Wales. The subject of the con- ference was discussed on its merits, without any hair splitting, or rude show of dogged firmness, such as characterised Mr. Forster's treatment of this question ; and on the 17th it was decided that the Sydney Govern- ment abandon their claim to exclusive jurisdiction over the Murray. The right of collecting the Murray duties is to be farmed to Victoria for an annual payment of a sum eq...

THE NEW SETTLEMENT AT PORT HINCHINBROOK, ROCKINGHAM BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1865

PORT Hinchbrook, the New Settlement at Rockingham -[SEE PASE 9.] THE NEW SETTLEMENT AT PORT HINCHINBROOK, ROCKINGHAM BAY. What the'far west''is to Americans,       Northern Australia is to the resident   of the older colonies of the Australian   group. It is remarkable with what gigantic strides the pioneer settlers   have, during the past two or three years, pushed onward beyond the con- fines of civilization, heedless of the risks which they were sure to incur in their search for new homes, until at length we have Anglo-Saxon homes at Cape York, at Palmerston, and at Camden Harbour ; io fact, we have established a fringe-work of civiliza- tion which completely surrounds the island of New Holland, and although a wide expanse of country lies between the settlements on our northern coast, the day is not far distant when there will be" very little of the coast line which will not be dotted with towns and vil...

BO ALLIA, DUBBO. THE subject of our en- - graving, tbe residence of" J. E. Serisier, Esq., J.P., (from a sketch by Mr. A. J. Campbell), is one of the neatest speci- mens of architecture in the Western districts, combiningthe advantages of a comfortable resi- dence, and all the con- veniences requisite for carrying on a first class mercantile business.

SECOND DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1865

SECOND DAY. Hurdle Race, of £20-Stingo. District Purse, of £40-Fireball. Hack Race, of £10-Long-legs. On the 22nd ult., a pair-oared race for the championship of the colonies, Connor and Donnelly against Green and Galbraith, took place over the usual course on the Parramatta River. The betting was greatly in favour of the latter, who failed to justify the confidence of their backers, as Connor and Donnelly took the lead soon after starting and were never headed, winning easily by twelve boat lengths. . Intelligence was received by last mail, that the celebrated cutter Enid, of the Royal Yacht squadron, has been purchased for Mr. Walkèr, Commodore of the R. S. Y. Club, and may be expected here in about two months.
