DINNER-TO-CAPTAIN MATTHEWS OF THE GREAT BRITAIN. , On Thursdaya dinner was given to Captain Matthews at the Ex- change Hotel, by a number!of gentlemen who wished to acknow- ledge the services he had rendered to Australia in being instru- mental in the introduction of steam communication, and also to tes- tify their sense of his skill as a commander, and of his kindness, and courtesy as a gentleman. The dining-saloon was decorated with bouquets, composed of our fairest flowers. A profusion of the most delicate viands covered the tables, and good taste presided over, and controlled the display of, profusion.

; V REVIEW. - THE PRODUCTIONS, INDUSTRY, AND RESOURCES OF NEW SOUTH WALES. * THE time has gone by when works On Australia possessed interei only for the colonists themselves, and for a very limited circle c readers at home. As late events have made the name of thi country familiar to all the world, so they have created an univei sal desire for information as to its true nature and various capabi lities. As gold has been, and is, the chief object of pursui amongst mortals, the discovery of that metal anywhere in larg quantities is sufficient to attract immediate attention, and to briiij the region where it is found into general notoriety. Accordingly that Australia is a gold-producing country, every body now knows but the knowledge of very many persons in regard to it extend little farther than this. To those of the latter class, who may wish in a short time, and without much trouble, to acquire a good ide; of the "productions, industry, and resources" of the country itself the hook ...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. \ _ ' ! . THE OVENS AND THE BUFFALO. (From our own Correspondent.) Sprinsr Creek, October 30, 1853. The famed "Ovens" present a curious feature, in the rapid changes which are ever taking place in a gold-digger life. Scarcelj' has line weather set in before the old diggings, which have worn a most melancholy exterior throuirh the winter, have put on an ap- pearance of stirring bustle, and knots of hardy adventurous men , are seen sinking fifty feet shafts among the old claims ; not only incurring the risk of encountering falling flakes of earth, avisin . from the combined effects of surface drainage and the loosened state of the earth from sunken claims, worked out, but also exposing their lives, either by being smothered in the washing stuff', after the hole has been bottomed, 'or drowned by a sudden influx of seve- ral tons weight of hidden water, bursting out so unexpectedly that in many instances the digger has barely time to grasp the rope and be wound up b...

GLEANINGS. SINGULAR BEQUEST TO A MEDICAL COLLEGE.-Leissing, a leading- German actor, who died recently, left all his fortune, I which was considerable, to the charitable institutions.of Frankfort. In his will, he states that he has been tormented all his life with the idea of being buried alive; and, in order to avoid any risk;'qf such a contingency, he ordered that as soon as his death should be declared by the competent medical authority, his skin should be flayed from his body from head to foot, and that the skin so taken oil" should be (¿iven to the Museum of Natural History of Frank- fort. In his will M. Leissing also named the surgeon who should perform the operation, and left a large sum as his compensation.

SOME EARNEST WORDS ON A SUBJECT MUCH IN NEED OF THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 19 November 1853

SOME EARNEST WORDS ON A SUBJECT MUCH IN NEED OF THEM. , j IT is not the most important subjects that always attract most attention. We are often very busy and very impas- sioned about matters that concern us remotely, while sinne others that touch us nearly, we either never think bf at all, or, if they are forced on our notice, turn from them as - soon as we can with an undisguised impatience. Let but some political question arise, which may possibly affect our prosperity as a community in a trifling degree, and our happiness as individuals not at all, and with it starts up at once a host of mouth-foaming orators, ready and eager to utter any amount of trash to "split the ears of the ground- lings." But let a deadly sore-a hideous ulcer-be long gnawing at the vitals of society itself-let it diffuse its virus far and wide through the system, separate from it member after member, and threaten the existence of the whole body-and here, where we should expect that every one, who has a he...

YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION.-On Wednesday evening, the members of the above Association assembled in the theatre°of the School of Arts, in order to hear a lecture delivered by the Rev; Dr. Ross. The audience, which was very large, in- cluded a few ladies in its number. The.'Rev. George Kin.' having opened the business of the evening with prayer, Dr. Ross, whose appearance was the signal' for a burst of hearty applause, came forward, and entered upon his lecture-the subject being, " Is the Religion of Jesus Christ true ?" After alluding to, and disposing of, various objections which have been raised to an affirmative answer to this question, the reverend gentleman adduced what he considered three conclusive proofs of the truth of Christianity. First, the testimony of the ancient .Tews ; secondly, the testimony of history in «relierai ; and thirdly, the testimony of Christians of the present day.

SYDNEY HORSE MARKET.—Nov. 26, 1853. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 26 November 1853

' I SYDNEY HORSE MARKET.-Nov. 26, 1853. # Mr. Martyn reports that the Horse Market has been very indif- ferently supplied during the week, notwithstanding the continued enquiries for good horses, such as thoroughly broken, heavy and slight draughts, that are staunch to the collar, and first-rate gig and saddle horses. Well matched and properly broken carriage horses are also in demand, but there has not been any brought in for sale. The prices obtained during the week have been fair, with reference to the description of horses offered for sale ; but thoroughly good and well broken horses still maintain a high figure. The prices for middling class draughts have ranged from £30 to £43 ; hackneys, from £25 to £37 ; and inferior hacks and others, from £10 to £25. Well broken heavy mares are still wanted for the New Zealand market.

THE M'IVOR NUGGET. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 26 November 1853

THE M'IVOR NUGGET. WE have been permitted, through the kindness of Mr. Edward Salamon, of George-street, to take a sketch of this nugget, an illustration of which we this week present to our readers. We extract the following descriptive account of it from the Herald : " An opportunity was yesterday afforded us of inspecting what, in the vocabulary of the day, must be called a "nugget" of gold; but which to our imagination suggested rather the idea of a fos sillized leaf from some gigantic gold tree, which once had flourished in " the upper air." It certainly was the most beautiful and remarkable specimen of what may be called pure gold, taken I from the earth, which has hitherto, been submitted to. .inspection. It was dug from the field at the M'lvor (Victoria), and weighs 95 ounces. Its form and structure are exceedingly curious. . The specimen is about ten inches long, by six indies broad, and vary- ing from one-quarter to nearly half an inch thick. On what ap- pears to be the upp...

SCIENTIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 26 November 1853

SCIENTIFIC. Tile first American service of china and glassware ever fur- nished to the White House, has just been manufactured hy order of the President. It is said to he of exquisite make, and superior to foreign productions. A very satisfactory exhibition was made at New York, on the 19th August, of the operations of Berdan's Gold Quartz Crushing and Amalgamating Machine. In the space of two hours, upwards of two tons of gold quartz were passed through the machine, which gave a product of 175 dollars in pure gold. This is at the rate of about 4 dollars 25 cents per 100 lbs., or nearly 90 dollars per ton. The ore was from the Dorn Mines of South California, and was by no means a fair sample of ore from those celebrated mines. The quartz was mixed up with a good dqal of earth, which increased the bulk while it reduced the per cent, richness. The machine worked beautifully, and to the satisfaction of every one present. Within the ])ast few days, Mr. Benian has made the amalgamating m...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. In acknowledgment of the liberality of the Council in voting him the further sum of £4000, says the Adelaide Times, Captain Cadell advertises his intention of putting four additional steamers on the Murray, together with the requisite number of barges, within the next nine months. The Postmaster-General had issued a notice informing the pub- lic that Captain Cadell had kindly consented to take charge of letters to settlers on the banks of the Murray, and that the first i mail would be closed for that purpose on Tuesday,- November 8th, at half-past 2 o'clock. A verdict of wilful murder has been-retnrned by a Coroner's jury against Peter Fagan, alabouring man, and his wife, inveterate drunkards, for having caused the death of an infant, ten weeks old, by keeping it without food. The child had been entrusted with the prisoners by its mother, when about to start to Melbourne, about three weeks previous, and £12 had been paid for its mainte- nance for six months. Colonel...

A most attractive "bill of fare" had been issued. The "Decanter Equilibri," and the " Globe Performances," by the three Masters Lees, were cleverly executed ; after which, the Professor appeared in the arena, and if we could judge from the cordial reception he met, he both surprised and delighted the audience by his Hercu- lean feats. Tlie entertainments were well diversified ; and some excellent equestrian acts were executed by Master Melville and Misses Fawcett and Howard. A well-written farce, creditably sustained, concluded the evening's amusements. NEW YORK SERENADERS.-We beg to direct the attention of ! our readers to the Farewell Benefit of Mr. J. E.
