AMERICAN CREEK, WOLLONGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 September 1865

AMERICAN CREEK, WOLLONGONG. THE American Creek, of which the accompany- ing sketch is a truthful repre- sentation, lies near the small but thriving sea- port of Wollon- gong. The Illa- warra district, in which Wollon-   gong is situated, is one remark- able for the beauty and gran deur of its scenery, and for the peculiarity of its arboral vegetation. The first view of Wol- longong from the Sydney Road is at once highly picturesque and   striking. After travelling along an elevated road over a rugged granite for- mation, and through a dense eucalyptus           scrub, for seve- ral miles, the tourist suddenly comes upon a sight which, if he has the lei- sure, and unless he be totally de- void of all idea of the beautiful, must cause him to stop and gaze in admiration. Turning round the corner of a large rock on the left side of the road he suddenly comes to the very edge of a preci- pice, when...

AQUATICS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 October 1865

AQUATICS. .YACHTING.-Tlie racing spars of the Alerte arrived from England on Sunday, hy the Margaret Mitchell ; so we may reasonably expect that the opening trip of the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron will not be deferred much longer. All the other vessels of the squadron are in commission, or nearly ready. The Vivid and Xariffa have been docked, and are again afloat. The 22-feet open boat, Thought, has been meta- morphosed by. Shea, of Woolloomooloo, into a 7-ton yacht, to be known hereafter as the Vivandière. She has been length- ened and raised, and will probably prove a stiff weatherly craft, but too much of the Ivy Green and Coquette class to please the eye. Russell, of Pyrmont, has launched his new open boat -a beauty to look at. Prom what we have seen of her sailing, she is as fast as she is good-looking, stands well up to her can- vas, and will puzzle anything in this harbour to beat. Yates' new clipper, the Torment, is also afloat, and appears a nice, handy boat, very fast in l...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 October 1865

MISCELLANEA. ELECTRICITY IN THE CHIMNEY CORDER: Some very curious experiments in electricity may be performed without the aid of the electrical; machine, and with no more'expehsive. ajm'af atus; than a bit of cloth and a sheet of papei^.J^has recently been discovered that a: sheet of paper may be charged with electricity by sim ply ""heat- ing it rapidly, before the fire and then rubbing, it vigorously with a piece of silk or woollen stuff. Part of a'gown or coat will answer perfectly for. this purpose. /The paper thus prepared, electric sparks may be drawn from it by ap- proaching the tips of the fingers or the nose to any part of its surface ; and, if the experiment is performed in a dark room, the sparks will be distinctly visible. If the paper is placed above the head of a person whose hair is soft, and not oiled or bears'-greased, the points of the hair will be seen to raise themselves, one by one, I towards the paper, until they assume the form I of a tuft. Any light bodies, s...

AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 October 1865

AMUSEMENTS. THE dramatic season at the Prince of Wales, though not a great finaucial success, has deserved to be so. Mrs. Poole's well established reputation, and the services of a good company ought to command fair support from the public. Mrs. Poole's " Hamlet " has been the feature of the month. She plays the character as well as a lady can play it ; but we imagine Shakespeare did not intend it for one of the fair sex. The minor characters were well played, except, indeed, that Horatio fancied that the prompter was solely for his use, and he was to speak solely what the prompter told him. Miss Cleveland and Mr. Vincent havebeen playing to tolerable houses at the Victoria, which we are glad, to perceive will shortly be re-modelled and renovated. Mr. and Mrs. George Case have just closed a brilliantly suc- cessful season at the School of Arts, and are about visiting New Zealand. They have been succeeded by the Bellringers, whose delicious music ought to attract better audiences. Ma...

RETROSPECT OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 October 1865

RETROSPECT OF THE MONTH, " WE regret to find that the Treasurer's estimate of revenue for the current year will likely prove as fallacious as those of his predecessors, or, in ; other words, that we shall have again to close the year's ac- count with ai> balance on the wrong side of the public ledger. Had there been no new taxes the deficit wouldhavebeensome thing alarming, for we find that, with the in- crease pf 20 per cent, on the tariff, and the stamp and package duties which have both yielded hand- some amounts, the to- tal amount collected puring the first' nine ~ months of the year is only £1,136,442, against £1,005,994 collected under the old tariff during the corresponding period of 1864. For the quarter ending the 30th September, the receipts were £430,843 9s. 8d., against £378,178 12s. ld. There is there- fore an increase of about 14 per cent., the greater portion of which is composed of increases in the Cus- toms and Land re Tenues. The quantity . of gold delivered bj...

ORIGINAL POETRY. FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND! AN AUSTRALIAN SEA-SIDE LYRIC. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 October 1865

ORIGINAL POETRY. FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND ! AX AUSTRALIAN SEA-SIDE LYRIC. BY P. S. WILSON. THE headlands force their rifted peaks Thro'scanty garbs of green, "Where muttering waves are spread before And the white beach lies between : The billows trail their snrfy fringe Over the shining strand Ever chiming a sweet refrain, They drift from shore and return again, Washing away with their sparkling rain Our footprints from the sand ! The fig-tree casts a pleasant shade , On the straggling ferns below And.the tea-scrub lines the shadowy creek Where the sea-wares ebb and flow : - The shells are crushed by a tiny foot And I clasp a trustful hand ; While forward the flashing foam-streaks leap. Or slyly over the sand-bar creep And, as we wander, the waters sweep Our footprints from the sand ! O never a footstep¡trod the sand . ¡ That beaches Life's sea-shore But the waves of Death have cover'd the strand And the much-loved marks it bore ! The trace of the child who lied from the sea That rush...

THE GREAT HALL OF THE SYDNEY UNIVERSITY. AT the northern end of the fine range of buildings known as the Sydney University, and fronting the Parramatta Hoad, stands the noble edifice of which we give an illustration. Taken as a whole in its proportions-tasteful, scientific, embellishment, and I «architectural beauty-it stands unrivalled, not only in Australia, but in the whole of the southern hemisphere. The building is of brown free - stone, en suite with the oilier portion of the establishment. On entering through a massive recessed Gothic doorway eight feet, in width, the visitor finds himself in a splendid apartment of 135 feet long and 45 feet wide, with walls 45 feet high, surmounted by an open timbered roof, the apex of which is 70 feet from the floor. The Avhole of the lights are of stained glass, and each window is in itself an historical chapter. The Oxford'window, situate over the chair of state at the back of the dais, is of severn lights, and contains fourteen life-size...
