THE PARLOUR MAID IN A DILEMMA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

THE PARLOUR MAID IN A DILEMMA. IF tho proverb, " Like master like mau,"be true, as applied to the sterner sex, if, in fact, it is natural for our inferiors to take us as models, it is especially amongst the femi- nine portion of the creation that the maxim holds good. Observe well, ladies, your servants, and you will see that they imitate you in everything, language, manners, and apparel ; for it is one of the peculiarities of the present epoch to have created a sort of uniformity of costume which differs not in its fas bion but only in the quality of the materials employed. On Sunday, at church, the mistress is clothed more quietly than her cook or her housemaid. It was not so a hundred years ago. Servants wore a livery which they could not take off without the express permission of their masters, a per- mission which was not frequently very readily granted. The maid servant had a special dress, which has become quite classi- cal, of which our engraving gives a specimen as coquetti...

The Month. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

Cí)e Monti). FOR a brief time-the few short months of palpable life remaining to our long since moribund Parliament-Mr. Chas. Moore will have the honour of serving the Government as member for Sydney East. It is scarcely possible that during that interval any great question will.arise in deciding which the new member's vote will be thought to possess any special value; but, nevertheless, when the occasion calls for it, he will be able to count one in opposition to such weighty obstruc- tionists as Mr. Lucas, Mr. Buchanan, and other orators of the frothy school, whose fixed idea regarding the' present Ministry will not allow them to believe that any good thing can emanate from the Premier or his colleagues ; and should Mr. Moore's return have no other effect than that of reducing, in ever so small a degree, the voting power of those retrogressive politicians, the country may be spared the pain of contemplating a few of those spectacles which disgraced the Legislative Assembly during ...

WAIRAU GORGE, N.Z. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

WAIRATT GORGE, N.Z\ THE Wairau Gorge, Province of Marl- borough, N.Z., ia, and has been, a very favourite subject for the exercise of Mr. Gully's pencil, and deservedly so, as the scenery of the gorge is all that an artist ' could wish for. Sylvan nooks, pretty water- falls, winding streams, and great ranges capped with snow, broken into weird and beautiful forms in never-ending variety, catch the eye in all directions from tho Top House, to where the gorge merges into the Wairau valley. The steep ranges on either side form the watershed of the Uiver Wairau, a stream tragically known in the history of New Zealand in connection with the famous Wairau massacre, where so many pioneer colonists, including Captain Wakefield, the New Zealand Company's agent, met their fate.

THE BAWDEN BRIDGE, AT GRAFTON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

THE BAWDEN BRIDGE, AT GRAFTON. I FOR a sketch of this bridge, which was named and opened with great ceremony on Easter Monday last, we are indebted to Mr. F. A. Franklin, Hoad Superintendent, under whose superintendence the structure was completed. The Bawden Bridge is situated some nine miles from Grafton, in a south- westerly direction. It is on the continuous lattice principle, and is 252 feet in length. It is supported in the centre, and at the ends, on cylindrical columns of wrought iron, each column being five feet in diameter above the ground, fitted on to cast iron cylinders, six feet in diameter, which are founded six feet deep in sound trap rock, twenty feet under the bed of the river. The cylinders of each pier are coupled with wrought iron bracings, on the box principle, strengthened internally with strong angle-iron bracings, having four circular openings for waterway, ten feet in diameter. This provision allows of the Hood water escaping more rapidly than it other- wis...

A hill to increase the Governor's salary, has passed the Queensland Assembly. The Elsmore Tin Mining Company's pro- perty has -been sold to British shareholders for £45,000. Mr. C. A. W.

OPENING OF THE VICTORIA BRIDGE, BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

OPENING OF THE VICTORIA BRIDGE, BRISBANE, QUEENS- LAND. MONDAY, 15th June, was a great day in Queensland annals, the new bridge across the Brisbane having been officially opened by His Excellency the Governor, with great ceremony, in the presence of some 8000 or 9000 persons. The procession and formal opening were followed by a banquet at the Town Hall. The bridge was christened by His Excellency as '4 The Victoria," and the splendid structure is worthy of the name. It is 1013 feet in length from one abutment to the other, with a central roadway of 30 feet width, and on each side of this is a footway six feet wide in the clear, supported upon cantilevers, the whole construction being on the lattice-girder principle, supported on cylinders. There are ten spans altogether, two of 52 feet, and the rest 82 feet, the difference being caused by au alteration insisted on by the Government in the length of the swing after the plans had been prepared, and the work commenced. The swing, which...

THINGS NOT KNOWN ABOUT INOCULATION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

THINGS NOT KNOWN ABOUT INOCULATION. Now that pleuro-pueumonia is again devas- tating the flocks of this aud the other colo- nies, aud everybody is inoculating, practical hints will prove of immense advautage. Ti> select the safe virus, inoculate some beast .not much thought of, in the fleshy part of the" hip or thigh, by making an opeuing with a knife, and insortiug a bit of wool which has been dipped iu any kind of virus. This place will swell enormously. After it has hardened, the auimal is killed, bled, and the part cut out. The piece extracted often weighs six pounds. Mash this up, wet your threads, and proceed to work-no deaths or aggravated swellings follow this. How to Inoculate with least risk, with any hind of Vivas.-Remember this, the youuger the virus, that is, the younger the disease, and the younger the auimal, the larger may your threads be made ; the older the disease, and the older the auimal, the smaller the thread. I have inoculated with common sowing thread mos...

LANDING PASSENGERS FROM IMMIGRANT SHIP JERUSALEM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

LANDING PASSENGERS FROM IMMIGRANT SHIP JERU- SALEM. THE above vessel, the first of a number to be chartered by the New South Wales Agent-General in England, to convey pas- ^ sengers under the assisted immigration laws to Sydney, arrived in Port Jackson on' the' 22nd June. Her arrival was most opportune, as the Government had just announced their intention of pushing ahead as speedily as possible the various lines of railway already surveyed, north, south, and west, and consequently will require a number of workmen of the class similar to those the Jerusalem brought out. In addition to the agricultural labourers and unskilled work- men upon the list of new arrivals, there were also niaDy young men of various trades whose terms of apprenticeship had only re- cently expired, and who therefore must be regarded as a great acquisition to the pro- ducing elements of the colony. The servant girls and young women are also of unexcep- tionally good character, their conduct throughout the whol...

FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

FOOTBALL. THE Australians inherit that fondness for out-door and athletic pastimes which is one of the leading characteristics of a Britisher. In the summer months cricket is pursued with an amount of ardour and enthusiasm which canuot be exceeded by the votaries of the game in England, and the more robust sport of football in the winter months is the most popular means of recreation and amusement for the young men of the colony. Of late years it lias become quite as fashion- able a game in the largo towns of New South Wales, Victoria, and New Zealand, as it ever was iu any village green in Old England. The Saturday half-holiday ob- served in most large establishments in and around Sydney, gives the admirers of foot- ball play an excellent opportunity for enjoy- ing their favourite sport-whether as "kickers " or spectators, is entirely a matter for their own arranging-and no occasion passes, if the weather is at all favourable, without a number of well contested matches taking place...

THE CHARTISTS—JONES AND WILLIAMS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

THE CHARTISTS-JONES AND WILLIAMS. Two out of the three prominent leaders of the Chartists-Frost, Williams, and Jones who played an important part in the history of British politics in connection with the famous riots of 1839 have died recently at Launceston, the other, Mr. Frost, still sur- vives, and resides at Newport, South Wales, having left Hobart Town some sixteen years ago, and returned to the town at which he was Mayor at the time of his expatriation. Mr. Frost has reached the advanced age of ninety years. The portraits of Mr. Zepha- niah Williams and of Mr. William Lloyd Jones are given in this issue. Mr. William Lloyd Jone? died in St. John street, Launceston, on Friday, 26th Decem- ber, 1873, after a long and painful illness, aud in great poverty. He was one of the three great Chartist leaders who were trans- ported to Tasmania upwards of thirty years ago. Mr. Jones was formerly in good cir- cumstances in the colony, but he lost much of what he made in speculations he ent...

NEW SOUTH WALES MINING BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

NEW SOUTH WALES MINING BOARD. WE this month present our readers with portraits of the eleven members of the New Mining Board, whose election we noticed last month, and who have since then been busily engaged iu framing regulations for the guidance of miners on the various gold-fields of this colony. As a matter of course, their duties are of a very arduous kind, much new legislation having to be effected, and quite as much old and useless mining law to be swept away. From the manner in which the Board attacked the difficulties before them, we have every reason to expect that when this, their first session is ended, the miners and mining speculators here will be placed in a far more secure and desirable position than either have occupied since Hargraves first made known to the.world that gold, The yellow shining gold, was one elemental portion of Australian soil. All the representatives in this first Mining Council, as will be seen on reference to the annexed biographies, are men to ...

OUR COLOURED PICTURE. MAORI AND HALFCASTE GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

ÖUE COLOURED PICTURE. MAORI AND HALF CASTE GIRLS. THE promise made by us last mooth, to pre- sent our readers with this ""very excellent specimen of Mr. T. S. Cousens' artistic skill, we gladly fulfil, and in such a manner as to leave no doubt upon our minds that it will afford them as much real gratification in re- ceiving, as we have in bestowing it. New .Zealand, that country whose scenery is conr Bidered to be the most sublime in the uni- verse, and whose people are the most re- j markable amongst semi-civilised nations, has always been a favourite field for artists of the highest order, who have repeatedly pre- sented us with faithful representations of the many wonders nature has placed within so small a compass. Chevalier, Gully, Hanna- ford, Robins, and Mr. Cousens, are amongst the best-known painters whose works have come before the public ; and, of the latter gentleman's productions, "Maorie and Half caste Girls," if not actually the best, stands very high upon the list.
