ON A NEW RUSH—THE FIRST FUNERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

ON A NEW RUSH-THE FIRST FUNERAL. ONE of the most melancholy, but at the same J time Christianising, scenes to be met with.in Australia is the ceremony of inteiment or funeral obsequies performed iii the wild, new country by "mate for mate." The recent rush to the Palmer has afforded many accasions for the exercise of this last friendly service, and many arid many a bitter salt tear has been shed at the rude burial of old friends who have braved the dangers incident to a digger's life in all parts of the world, only to sink to death when the longed for " El Dorado" had been all but reached. Out from the busy haunts of men, where nought but the tread of a half cannibal race, and the sportive gambols or terrified rush of animals, break the stillness of the scene, it is hardly, tn be expected that a funeral cortege will be either lengthy or imposing ; but there is often greater expression of genuine sorrow.than is to be seen in our more tastefully planned and conserved metropolitan grav...

LEAVES FROM AN OTAGO SKETCH BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

LEA.VES FROM AN OTAGO SKETCH BOOK. TRAVELLERS, as a rule, when visiting New Zealand generally take the steamer which, calling at the Bluff, goes along the coast to Port Chalmers. Landing here they proceed to Dunedin, and usually content themselves with making a few insignificant excursions to the outskirts. They spend most of their time in the city itself with the friends to whom they have letters of introduction, and after a day or two's rest, go on in the next boat to Canterbury, where the same thing is repeated, and so on till they take their final departure from the West Coast on their return journev. This is called doing the round of New Zealand, but whilst it enables the traveller with a limited time at his com- mand to make acquaintance with the prin- cipal ports, it can scarcely be said that it gives him at all a fair idea of what the coun- try is like. The illustrations in this issue represent a few of the many picturesque views to be met Avith on a route we beg to suggest ...

CAPTAIN ONSLOW. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

CAFTtUN ONSLOW. Cap bain Arthur Alexander Walter Onslow, first entered the Houae at the General I Election of December, 1869, when he was elected, with Mr. Morrice, to represent the Camden Constituency. He was again elected, in 1872, for the same electorate, in conjunc- tion with Mr. Garrett. Since he has been in the House, Captain Onslow has been somewhat erratic. When first elected, he was supposed to be a supporter of the Mar- tin party, but when that party came into power, his lance was as often couched against them, as for them. For the last two ses- sions, however, he has been firmly fixed in Opposition, being a determined opponent of the Government, without the slightest sym- pathy with the hon. gentlemen who lead the Opposition. Captain Onslow might make a good speaker were he not so impetuous. He allows himself to be carried away by impulse, and, commencing an address reasonably enough, he will suddenly raise his voice into a fortissime tone, and bellow out a denunci- ation...

MR. BUTLER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

MR. BUTLER. Edward Butler, Esq., Q.C., entered the House at the General Election of December, 1869, for the sixth Parliament of New South Wales, having been returned for the Electoral District of Argyle. For this electorate he has continued to sit up to the present time, having been returned in 1872, for the seventh Parliament, and having afterwards gone back for re-election in May of the same year, on his appointment to the office of Attorney General, in the existing Parkes administra- tion. Mr. Butler's very extensive practice at the bar of the Supreme Court prevented his taking any very regular part in the pro- ceedings of the sixth Parliament, until to- wards the end of the Session of 1S71-2, when Sir Janies Martin's administration was finally defeated, on the Border Customs question. The appeal that was then made to the country resulted in the return of so large a number of members opposed to the Martin Govern- ment, that its members at once resigned, aud room was thus made for...

MR. S. C. BROWN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

MR. S. C. BROWN. ! Stephen Campbell Brown, Esq., after twice I before contesting the seat for the Borough of Newtown, was at last returned for that . constituency, at the General Election of I 1869. The interest he took in his cousti I tuents, and the benefits he was enabled to confer by his position upon the electorate I he represented, caused his return to the present Parliament. Mr. S. C. Brown, though never in a ministry, has held two or three important positions, by which his valuable , services have been made available to his constituents, and to the country generally. He held a seat, by election, in the Newtown and Cook's River Road Trust, one of the best managed Trusts in the colony, and, by I his exertions, a Bill was passed through Par- liament, allowing that Trust to appropriate a portion of the funds at its disposal to fight- ing with gas the line of road under its con- trol. The result has been, that one of the best roads in the Colony is now lighted, from i Parramatta-...

THE VOLUNTEER ENCAMPMENT AT CAMPBELL FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

THE VOLUNTEER ENCAMPMENT AT CAMPBELL FIELDS. VOLUNTEERING is not all child's play, as those of our citizen soldiers who braved the wet and cold at Ham Common last year, can abundantly testify. What with the pouring rain which fell,withoutgreatinterval,during the whole time camp was formed on that oc- casion, the slush and mud through which the whole force had to tramp to the re- view, and the discomfort to which both visitors and soldiers were subjected, it is not wonderful that fine weather, was ardently wished for by them at the next yearly/turn- out, and in this wish those who visited.'.1.the Volunteer Camp at Campbell Fields, on Mon- day last, were not wholly disappointed. Cer- tain unforeseen circumstances 'prevented.the campaign being entered upon as usual, at Baster; and thc eventful day had to be. postpoucd till the next holiday,, 24th May, when it was determined that the'force should have ample opportunity of testing their dis- cipline, and displaying their warlike skill du...

MR. WATSON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

MK,. WATSON. James Watson, Esq., has held a seat in the House for two Sessions, having first been returned in December, 1869, and, afterwards, in 1872, for the Electoral District of the Lachlan. When first elected Mr. Watson was connected with an extensive business in Young, which supplied a large number of storekeepers in most of the surrounding mining townships. He has thus a very in- timate knowledge of the requirements of the district he represents ; and, though he' has since become a member of one of the largest wholesale mercantile firms in Syd- ney, the interests of his constituents are well looked after in his hands. With a tho- | rough knowledge of mercantile business, and an intimate acquaintance with the wants and requirements of the interior, Mr. Watson can bring no small amount of experience to bear upon many questions that come before the House. It is only when he can do so, that he rises to speak, and, as he deals suc- cinctly with the question at issue, and with- out...

MR. HOSKINS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

MR. HOSKINS. This gentleman was first returned to Par- liament under the new Electoral Act, in July, 1859, when he was elected for the Gold Fields North, a new constituency, created under that Act, for the purpose of giving re- presentation to the miners. Mr. Hoskins was, at the time, practically interested in mining pursuits, and his fellow miners thought so highly of his ability, and of the sex'vices it would be in his power to render them, that they undertook to pay him an annual stipend during the time he repre- sented them. This was continued for a time, but gradually fell off ; but Mr. Hos- kins continued to represent them until Feb- ruary, 1S63, when he resigned and accepted the office of Road Superintendent, offered him by the Cowper administration. He held office until 1868, when he resigned his post ; and, in July of the same year, was again elected to represent the. Gold Fields North, on the resignation of Mr. Pickering, the then member. At the general election of Decembe...

THE HON. W. M. ARNOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

THE HON". W. M. ARNOLD. Mr. Arnold was first returned to Parlia- ment for the County of Durham, in April, 1S56, being the first Parliament summoned under the New Constitution Act, and con- tinued to sit for that constituency until the passing of the'Electoral Reform Act. At the . first election under ' that Act, in June, 1SCS, Mr. Arnold was returned for the Elec- torate of the Patterson, for which he has since continued to sit. On the 8th March, 1S64, Mr. Arnold accepted office under the Cowper Administration.. In November, 1S65, he was elected speaker, not, however, with- out some considerable opposition, and, after a rather acrimonious debate, led off by Mr. Macpherson. The speech of Mr. Arnold, on that occasion, by its calm reasoning, and by the perfect command of temper it shewed, whilst the Speaker must necessarily have been smarting under. the virulence of the attack, made, at the time, a favourable im- pression upon the House and the country, and pointed out Mr. Arnold as a ...

MR. BAWDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

MR. BAWDEN.   Like the gentleman who has preceded him, Robert Bawden, Esq., first entered the House in December, '69. He was elected for the Clarence district, for which constituency he has since continued to sit. Mr. Bawden is an old resident of the Clarence district, and has the full confidence of his constituency,   who, until they obtained Mr. Bawden's ser- vices, had not been represented by a resident of the district. He does not frequently ad- dress the House, but when he does, his plain good sense, and the information he brings to bear upon the matter under discussion, always cause his speeches to be heard with attention. He makes no pretention to the   possession of power of language, and as he invariably deals practically with questions under debate, his speeches are never either long or tedious. He is a moderate supporter of the Government, though he takes his seat on the cross-benches. He came into the House as a strong supporter of ...

MR. WEBB. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

MR. WEBB. Edmund Webb, Esq., was elected in De- cember, 1869, to sit in the sixth Parliament of New South. Wales, for the electoral dis- trict of West Macquarie, and has since con- tinued to represent that electorate. Mr. Webb is a resident of Bathurst, having, in the course of a long and well-conducted business, amassed a very considerable pro- perty in that and the neighbouring districts. He was the first Mayor of the Municipal Council of Bathurst, and appears to have the very general confidence of the electors of that locality. He has done very much to- wards beautifying the City of Bathurst, his new stores, in the centre of the town, being   the finest private building in the place,   having been recently enlarged, at a very con siderable expense. Mr. Webb is not a pleasing   speaker, his somewhat harsh voice taking off very much from what would otherwise be the telling èffect of his speeches. He never indulges in oratory, but deals exclu- ...

THE LATE REV. THOMAS BINNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

THE LATE REV. THOMAS BINNEY. THIS gentleman, though one of the strictest Nonconformists of modern days, and one who fearlessly took up the cudgels for Inde- pendency at a time when to do so was to speedily abandon the treasures and profits of this world to worship God honestly, and to do good to mankind without regard to creed or class, was known and respected in every English-speaking community and many foreign countries as much as by his own co- religionists. His death, which took place on the 24th February, 1874, at London, was a sad loss to the Independent confraternity, who looked up to him as a leader in the service of the Lord-one who did the work appointed him faithfully and fearlessly. Mr. Binney was born in April, 1798, at Newcastle-on-Tyne. His early youth was passed in business occupations, but his friends having discerned in him character and gifts which they believed qualified him for the Christian ministry, and his belief being that he was called to become a religious...

MAJOR WARBURTON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

MAJOR WARBURTON. THE adventures of Major Warburton, whose portrait appears on another page, will entice his name to rank amongst the most illustrious explorers of Australasia. Supported by a good party and provided with several camels he left Adelaide in September, 1872, for the purpose of exploring a ti act of country to the north, hitherto untouched. In the morn h of December they reached Alice Springs, on the overland telegraph line, a spot as neaily as possibly in the centre of this great island continent. From the time they dep'atted from the Macdonnell Ranges until they struck a creek leading to the Oakover, the couii'ry was similar to that describpd hy Gregory as the teiminus of his N. W. exploration , «andy ridges and hollows without grass, and clothed with bushes and sciubby timber. F>-r months this monotonous country was un- versed. Water could only be.-obtained 'Mit of native wells, and these were discovered by following the recent tracks of natives, which caused much ...

THE WIDOW'S MITE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

THE WIDOW'S MITE. OUR engraving, from a picture by a Belgian artist, represents the Eastern widow deposit- ing her offering, humble in amount, but large in proportion to her means. The incideut which the artist has depicted is one not altogether without its useful lesson, even in New South "Wales. Large as are our con- tributions towards the alleviation of suffering and want, it is notorious that the largest subscribers are not among the wealthiest in the community. The mites of the poor would, in the aggregate, amount to much more than the more ostentatious subscriptions of the rich.

PLOUGHING SOD.-The manurial value of a sod ploughed beneath the surface very much depends upon the manner in which it is turned under. If the furrow is turned in a continuous strip, unbroken, and made to lap upon the preceding fallow, the utmost value of the sod is secured ; . for it is ouly a3 it be- comes decomposed, and furnishes food for the succeeding crop, that it is of any value. If the furrow is irregularly turned and broken into fragments, a large portion of the sod is uuburied ; it simply dries upon the surface and remains useless. Besides, a furrow so turned, furnishes a poor seed-bed, because it is not compact and solid. On the contrary, a properly turned sod forms an excellent seed-bed. The surface of the field, when ploughed, forms a succession of ridges of soil exactly parallel with each other. When these ridges are. harrowed down the sod be- neath is not torn up, but is evenly covered with a fine layer of soil, just sufficient in deptb to form a seed-bed, beneath whi...
