LITERATURE. ANOTHER PAST LODGER RELATES HIS OWN GHOST STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1865

LITERATURE. ANOTHER PAST LODGER RELATES HIS OWN GHOST STORY. THE circumstances I am about to relate to you have truth to recommend them. They happened to myself, and my recollec- tion of them is as vivid as if they had taken place only yesterday. Twenty years, however, have gone by since that night. During those twenty years I have told the story to but onè other person. I telbit now with a reluctance which I find it difficult to over vOome. All I entreat, meanwhile, is that you will abstain from forcing your own conclusions upon me. I want nothing explained awayV .1 desire no arguments. . My mind on this subject is quite made, up, and, having the testimony of my "own sanses to rely, upon, I prefer to abide by it. ' Well !

WOONOONA~T AN AUSTRALIAN TALE OP THE CITY AND THE BUSH. BY F. 8. WILSON. N the new-comer was seen a man of about fifty years of age, with com- manding figure, and well-formed cast of features ; but the knitted brow and nervous twitching of the mouth, told that smouldering fire was sleeping in his breast. " Good morning, good morning, Mr. Gray," exclaimed the lawyer, as he extended one hand to the visitor, and placed a chair with the other. "Be seated-chair's rather dusty, hut you know my ways-we don't stand on ceremony here, eh ? " *' Good morning," coldly returned the new arrival, accepting the chair hut withoiit acknowledging the prof- fered hand of Foggleton.

Australia, I never experienced-'' " I believe you sent for me this morning ? " interrupted the merchant, curtly. " I did," replied Fogaleton.. -who,...

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. A young aboriginal woman, known as black Emma, was recently murdered in Murray Street Perth, by a ticket-of-leave man named Badcock, who has been fully committed for trial at the next assizes, on the charge of wilful murder.

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

WHOMBEYAN CAVES. ABOUT fifty miles from Goulburn, and only a few miles distant from the little town of Taralga, are situated the maguificently picturesque caverns of which we furnish a view. The caves are situated in an amphitheatre completely sur- rounded by a range of hills, the entrance to which has been formed by some mighty natural convulsion which has reft asunder the whole force of the mountain, and the visitor, entering by what appears in shape like a gothic door of giant dimensions (being no less than two hundred feet in height), finds himself in a chamber, the Willis of which are composed of marble of every hue. The bottom of the principal chamber has at one period formed the.bed of a creek which takes its rise in the adjacent hills, and in several places the marble presents quite a polished appearance, caused no doubt by being used as a pathway, along which wild animals made their,way to quench their thirst in the little mountain stream which entered the cave, and made , ...

SCENE FROM THE OPERA OF "FAUST." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1865

SCENE FRQM THE ÓPERA OF "FAUST." PRE-EMINENT amongst the musical compositions of recent years, stands M. Gounod's" Faust, one of those legitimate triumphs which for all time renders the author famous. Comparatively few in these colonies would ever have known anything of the chef d\ceuure of M. Gounod, were it not for the enterprise of Mr. Wm. Lyster, who, in his efforts to cater for our musical public, accepted the responsibility of bringing out a new opera by a com- paratively xmknowri author, and in doing so, surmounted diffi- culties ' which .< to a European manager would appear insuper- able! ' What tile result has been can be testified by every person forming a part of the immense audience assembled in the Prince of Wales Theatre on last Wednesday evening-when the opera was performed for the first time this season-and by an equally numerous assemblage on Saturday evening. The plot of the opera is founded' on the story of Faust, and Marguerite, one of, the producti ns...

THE LATE COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1865

THE LATE COMET. THE following facts, in con- - nexion with the visit of the late comet, have been fur- nished by Mr. Tebbut, of Windsor :-Perihelion pas- sage, 1865, Jan., 14 34054 G.M.T. ; longitude of peri- helion, 141 deg. 15 min. 37 sec. ; longitude of ascend- ing node, 253 deg. 3 min. ; 16 sec. ; inchnation of orbit, . 87 deg. 32 min. 20 sec.; perihelion distance, 0-026014 ; motion, retro- grade. It arrived in peri- helion about six a.m. on January 15th, Sydney time, being then only two and a half millions of miles dis- tant from the sun's centre. Its angular motion in peri- helion was very rapid, hav- ing moved over an arc of 180 degrees of its orbit in a few hours. Its imposing aspect when first seen here was probably due to its pre- vious near approach to the sun, the comet being at no time within ninety millions of miles of the earth. On the evening of January 30th, it was distant 63 mil- lions of miles from the snn and 114 millions from the earth, the length of its visi- b...

BEN HALL, THE BUSHRANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1865

BEN HALL, THE BUSHRANGER. THE Nemesis of the law has again fallen with unerring certainty. Another of the unquiet, reckless spirits, whose lawless exploits have, for months, formed a subject of comment for the press, parliament, and pulpit, has died a violent death by the hands of the officers of the law. Last month we announced the death of the monster Morgan, we have now to record that of Ben Hall. The news of this event was received in Sydney on the morning of Saturday week, and at a later hour on that day, the police arrived at Forbes with his dead body, on which a judicial enquiry was held, when the following facts were elicited. On the Thursday night previous, Sub-Inspector Davidson, Sergeant Condell, five troopers, and two black trackers, came across Hall's horses, near the Billibong Creek, about twelve miles from Forbes, and searched some time for Hall, whom they could hear in the adjoining scrub. After searching for a short time, they decided to wait until morning, and beli...
