CHAPTER III. AN EVENING AT GOVERNMENT HOUSE, MY THIRD VISIT TO CAPTAIN GREEN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 August 1865

CHAPTER III. AN EVENING AT GOVERNMENT HOUSE, MY THIRD VISIT TO CAPTAIN GREEN. I must now introduce the reader to a scene differing widely from the bushranger's cave or the prison cell, to no less a place than Government House at Sydney. j The wide saloons were brilliantly lighted and filled with a gay crowd. It was one of those crushes which colonial governors are obliged to inflict upon themselves and upon society at stated periods. I was spending in Sydney a month's leave of absence, and some friends of my family, high in office, had obtained me an invitation. I had not been long there when I started, on coming face to face with a new arrival. "Is it possibler" I exclaimed, as I held out my hamd. " Yes, it is myself and no ghost," he said, laughing. " I can- not be so much altered as I supposed, for you to have recognized me so easily." He certainly was altered ; the hair cut with military closeness, the shaven chin, and well-trimmed moustache and whiskers, made him look a very di...

LITERATURE. THREE VISITS TO CAPTAIN GREEN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 August 1865

LITERATURE. THllEE VISITS TO CAPTAIN GREEN. BY EDWAKD BRAKTHWAYT, AUTHOR OF " THE WAYWARD HEART," &C, &C. (CONCLUDED EROM OUR LAST.) " His sneering tone, the evidently intentional insult, and a knowledge that this wilfully perverted fact had been brought up by him before to do me an injury where I had much at stake, all combined to infuriate me. " ' A Tracy of Castle Tracy, even though a private,' I replied hotly, * is the superior of the grandson of an anny contractor, who gained his wealth by supplying bad clothing at a high price, cheating Government and the soldier alike.' " A look of mingled annoyance and anger came over his face. He had supposed us to be ignorant of his parentage. " ' If you refer to me, sir,' he said, hastily, 'you are aliar.' " I was out of uniform, for I had been on the point of leaving barracks, and I had a light cane in my hand. I laid this smartly over his shoulders, forgetting the consequences, forgetting his age and grey hair in my fury...

THE LEICHARDT SEARCH EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 August 1865

THE LEICHARDT SEARCH EXPEDITION. i. Tl_1.1_ "J? -1- _ l-l_ T ' ~1-_1 J_ .Ll. _ _1_ í» -I . THE problem of whether Leichardt, the explorer, or any of his oarty still exist, will, unless thwarted by unforeseen circum- stances, soon be solved. To Dr. Mueller, director of the Mel- bourne Botanical Gardens, belongs the credit of having been the first to awaken public attention to the possibility of some of the unfortunate party that accompanied Leichardt in his last expedition being still alive with the blacks of central Australia : and if BO whether they ought not to be rescued. The idea was taken up by a committee of Melbourne ladies, under .whose direc- tion the search party has been organised, with an alacrity con- trasting strangely with the apathy the people of New South Wales displayed some years ago when the shorter absence of the explor- ers rendered their being found much more probable than can now be reasonably expected. According to the arrangements made by the committee refe...

CATTLE CROSSING THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 August 1865

CATTLE CROSSING THE MURRAY. THE river Murray, or Hume, is by far the largest stream in Australia. Its total length is 2,400 miles, of which nearly 2,000 are navigable in certain seasons. It is fed on the New South Wales side by the Edwards, Lachlan, Murrumbidgee, and Darimg rivers, and the several tributaries to the same ; and upon the left, or Victorian banks, the waters of the Goulburn, Ovens, Wimmera, Campaspe, Loddon, and other small rivers. The tributaries to the Darling and the Lachlan extend in a north- easterly direction along the west side of the coast range, lying in some instances in the latitude of Sydney, Brisbane, Moreton Bay, and Port Curtis. The main tributaries to the Murrum- bidgee Uiver, and the head waters of the Murray, arise in the mountain range known as the Australian Alps, of which the snow-clad Kosciusko is the highest. Many of these rivers might be rendered easily navigable during a portion of every year, and a permanent arrangement established between the...

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 August 1865

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. The Legislative Council was opened on Thursday, 22nd June, at one o'clock, in the Old Government House, by His Excellency the Governor, who delivered a somewhat lengthy speech, from which we learn that the fixed Revenue received for the year 1864 was £3,136 in excess of the estimate, and £4,691 more than the amount received for 1863. The total revenue received from all sources for the year 1864 amounted to £71,910, the actual expenditure £70,714, leaving a surplus of £1,196 in hand on the 1st January, 1865, which, with the £2,300 repaid to the Post Office Savings' Bank, makes the revenue actually received £3,496 in excess of the total expenditure on account of last year. His Excellency estimated the number of convicts now employed on Government works in the colony at about 800, and the number of ticket-of-leave men at 1,375. A military review in honour of the Queen's birthday took place on the 24th of May, at the base of Mount Eliza. Efforts were being made to clo...

COLLISION BETWEEN THE R.M.S. JEDDO AND THE ADA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 August 1865

COLLISION BETWEEN THE E.M. S. JEDDO AND THE ADA. THE fine new barque Ada, of Liverpool, 307 tons register, Cap- tain Williamson, cleared out at this port for Shanghae on the 17th, with a cargo of 500 tons of coal. The captain, intending to go to sea during the night or early next morning, .ordered a pilot to be sent up to take the vessel out. Before the pilot ar- rived the Woniora steamer took the Ada from the Grafton Wharf, towed her down the harbour to. nearly opposite Garden Island, and then let her go. The vessel forged ahead: for1 a short distance when her way was stopped*,' and the master or- dered the anchor to be let go. Captain Williamson states that the order not being, promptly obeyed he was going forward, to ascertain the cause, when he" perceived a large steamer, which proved to be the II.M.S. Jeddo, in charge of pilot Robinson, coming right down upon the Ada. He at once hailed the steamer to put her helm hard a-starboard, but it was evidently too late, and in a few sec...

THE BURNING OF FRAZER AND CO.'S STORES, YORK STREET, SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 August 1865

THE BURNING OF FRAZER AND CO.'S STORES, YORK STREET, SYDNEY. THE extensive conflagration by which the largest ecclesiastical building in the colonies was consumed, has been followed closely by an equally extensive calamity, and we have now to record the entire destruction, by the same devouring element, of the largest mercantile establishment in the city - that of John Frazer and Co., situated at the corner of York and Barrack streets. A more complete destruction it is almost impossible to conceive. The entire range of stores, of three stories, were closely filled with a varied and valuable stock, embracing goods of almost every description, and a very large stock of liquors was contained in the cellar, scarcely an article of which was saved. The fire was discovered about half-past eight o'clock on the evening of the 20th ult. It was then confined to the back portion of the upper floor in the northern end of the building, where it appears a very large stock of candles was stored. Wi...

CHAPTER IX. KIALLA I'ASS.-THE ' OUT-STATION.'

"-BUVANT. A fortnight had passed since the instalment of Arthur Gray into his new office, and now he occupied his own hut, situated midway be- tween ' the house ' and the men's quarters. As he sprang from his bed and flung back the rude swinging shutter, a flood of light streamed in and dazzled his eyes with its glory-as if the morning reproached him for losing its beauties. Perhaps the little ' finishing touches \bestowed upon his toilet ill assorted with his new occu- pation, but they did not take long, and as the brightness of the day shone on his dark cluster- ing hair and flitted on the rich colour of his chee...

B Y tlie mail steamer that will leave this port on the 22nd, the distinguished officer, who during the past four years has so ably commanded Her Majesty's forces in New Zealand, will re- turn to his native land after having served his country for forty years. Lieut. General Cameron is a native of Caledonia, lineally descended from the ancient house of Lochiel, whose famous clan, having staked all upon the fortunes of the house of Stuart, were decimated on the fatal field of Culloden. He enter- ed the army in 1825 as an ensign, in that most famed of national regiments, the 42nd,-better known to Scotchmen as the "Black Watch,"-and had attained the rank of Lieutenant Colonel when war broke out in the Crimea ; he accompanied his regiment there, and, as will be seen by the following extract from Kinglake'sr description of the battle of Alma, soon took a prominent posi- tion and acquired a reputation second to none in Her Majesty'» service.

The summer-day had ended, and evening advanced with that rapidity so noticeable in our Australian sunsets. A lew clouds, tinged with the most gorgeous colouring, gra- dually melted to a leathery softness, and the pure background of sky assumed that pale primrose Hush which defies the imita- tive art of the painter, and which the pen cannot convey in words. Against this delicate hue, the broken western ridge rose black and abrupt, the craggy peaks being thrown forward with remarkable distinctness, and casting their long sombrous shadows where the spurs ran down from the ranges to meet the lower hills and plains. Everything wore an air of peace and quietness ; there was a sudden hush of our bush songsters, whose rather noisy carolling had given place ...

To PREVENT ARTICLES OF STEEL OR IRON FROM RUSTING.-Oxygen is abundant in the com- position of water and atmosphere; and that quick- lime has an astonishing affinity for it is evinced i by the practice of using a little powdered lime, I tied up in muslin, to beat out a minute portion I of dust on the surface of polished steel or I iron goods, such as fire-irons, fenders, and fronts of stoves of a superior quality, when not in use, ! to pre vent their rusting. A more delicate instance is that of the manufacturers of needles, watch springs, cutlery, &c, who generally put a small packet of quick-lime in any box or parcel of polished steel goods they may be sending to a distant customer, or with goods which they may put away as not likely to be wanted for some time, as security from rust. The following is very differeut, .yet bearing upon the same principle : When bricklayers leave off work for a day or two, as from Saturday till Monday, they ¡"push their trowels in and out of th...

[?]TROSPECT OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 August 1865

INTROSPECT ßF TEE, MONTE, THE Escort returns for the month of July are more favourable than those for Beveral months back. The decrease for some, time noticeable in the yield of our gold fields has been changed for an increase, which, ^though slight, is nevertheless satisfactory. The quan- tity of gold received by . escort during the first seven months of the year amounted to 166,787 ozs., of which the'Jul} receipts were 20,763 ozs. For the correspond- ing mc:ith,of last year, the receipts were 19,214 ozs., and for i'.he seven months, 171,346 ozs. There is there- fore, ac increase on the past month of 1549 ozs., bat a decrease on the past portion of the year of 4559 . ozs., o? ;*>bout 2¿ per cent, on the entire, yield. The Customs revenue collected at this port from January 1st to July 31st, amounted to . ¿6345,150. against £314,506 for the corresponding period of 1864. There ja therefore an apparent increase in favour of the cu; i-ent year ; but when it is remembered that the Cu...
