BATHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1865
BATHURST, NEW SOUTH WALES. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; BATHURST. THIS prosperous and rising town may be termed the capital of the Western &nbsp; Districts. It is situated 120 miles from Sydney, in the midst of some of the most fertile agricultural and pastoral land in the colony. It is pro- &nbsp; posed that the Great Western Railway, now in course of construction, shall have its terminus at Bathurst; and when this is completed the town &nbsp; will receive an impetus certain to add to its commercial prosperity. Two bi-weekly papers are at present published in Bathurst. It also contains a flourishing School of Arts, and its religious and educational establish- ments are fully adequate to the requirements of the inhabitants.

LITERATURE. WOONOONA. AN AUSTRALIAN TALE OF THE CITY AND THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865
LITERATURE. WOONOONA. AN AUSTRALIAN TALE OP THE CITY AND THE BUSH. BY F. 8. WILSON. CONCLUDED. OW, as I have said before, the paths by , which Nyarra generally pursued his way I were as rugged and tangled as they were j) short ; so that what they lost in length ' was more than counterbalanced bv their roughness : and the track selected by him on the present occasion formed no ex- ception to the general rule. It was in- tersected by numerous creeks and deep chasms, that seamed the rocky ground, through which the water gurgled fifty feet below. Many of these had to be traced round their edges till places were found where the banks annroanhed aarh - ?.-»iTiuav,ii=u cami other closely, and where a man might leap the space with ease. It %vas as Arthur's horse was bounding across one of these crevices that a low smothered cry startled the whole of the party and brought them to a sudden halt. The cry evidently proceeded from the ravine, but the difficulty was how to reach the person by who...
WAITING FOR THE MAIL! [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865
WAITING EOE THE MAIL BY F. S. WILSON. BREAKS a sun-streak through the casement-streams its glory on the floor, And the crisp and matted leaf age rustles round the cottage door; Where the truant buds are climbing, Tapping on the glass, and chiming With the sounding burst of billows breaking on the shingly shore ! Watching by the open casement where the starry blossoms cling Listening to the weary song the weeping waters ever sing Sad and thoughtful sits a maiden, For her peaceless breast is laden With the wish for news of one whose memory makes the tear- drop spring. So she watches where the sun is fading on a distant sail Where the scattered sea-spray drifts and tosses in the summer gale, And her girlish heart is throbbing, Like the cold wave's ceaseless sobbing O ! for weary youth and beauty-waiting, waiting for the Mail ! Let us track the steps so longed for, o'er the parched Australian plain Mark the spot that heard the raving death-calls of his thirsty pain ! See the ironbark, u...
ORIGINAL POETRY. TO HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS THE PRINCE OF WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865
ORIGINAL POETRY. TO HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS THE PRINCE OF WALES. BY THE WOOLLAHRA HERMIT. PRINCE of a right royal household of ages, Traversing realms in thy youthful career, Welcom'd by warriors, statesmen, and sages, Wherever British remembrances cheer Chivalrous hosts, with their bannerfolds floating, Marshall'd to witness the soul-stirring scene ; Multitudes, multitudes, everywhere shouting, "Long live Prince Albert, and GOD save the Queen !" Wherefore not visit this new world of loyalty ! , Good men and true would with-triumph behold The son and tho heir of old Albion's royalty Land on the shores of this region of gold ! Far through the depths of its dim penetralia, Echoes should waft from emporium displays, Until the length and the breadth of Australia Rang with reply to our heartfelt hurrahs ! SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALKS.-18(33.

POLITICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865
POLITICAL. POLITICAL affairs appear unsettled, and there are marked indi- cations of an early struggle for the place and power. The Colo- nial Treasurer has laid before the Legislative Assembly the estimates for 1866, supplementary estimates for 1865 and previous years. The expenditure for the several departments, including the schedules for the year 1866, chargeable on the general revenue, amounts to £1,391,020, against £1,432,786 appropriated for 1865 ; so that there is a decrease in the expenditure for the year of £41,766. The total amount required for 1866, including special appro- priations chargeable on revenue, is £1,876,520. The sum ap- propriated for 1865 was £1,824,244. The increase in the expenditure for 1866 is, therefore, £52,2S0; but this is caused by the interest on debentures and Treasury bills exceeding last yearby £88,000. The supplementary estimates; for. 1865, amount to £99,396 13s. 9d., and of this sum £26,827 14s. 2d. has been paid up to 30th September, and £72...
RELIGIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865
RELIGIOUS. Arrangements have been made for the erection of a new church in Woolloomooloo, for the accommodation of the members of the Church of England in that populous part of the city. The site of the new church, which is to be known as St. Peters, is the corner of Crown and Stanley streets. A suffi- cient amount has been subscribed to pay for the exterior of the * church, which is to accommodate nine hundred persons ; all the sittings are to be free. The foundation stone is to be laid by the Bishop of Sydney. The llev. G. H. Moreton, the present assistant minister of St. James's, will be the incumbent of the new church. Archbishop Polding sailed by the mail steamer Bombay, en roule for Rome. The cause of his sudden departure is said to be owing to instructions received from the Papal See. The steamer Kembla, with the leading members of the Roman Catholic Church, accompanied him to the Heads. A new Congregational Church has been opened at Woollahra. It will accommodate from 350 to...
WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865
WESTERN AUSTRALIA. j.nere is now m course oí building at Albany, by tbe P. and 0. Company, a floating dock of the following dimensions : Length, 130 feet; depth, 10 feet; beam at top, 30 feet ; at bottom, 25 feet. The lower part is built of the best Swan River mahogany, and the top sides of red pine. It is constructed for the purpose of receiving and repairing the seven iron lighters now in use for the purpose of coaling the mail steamers of the P. and O. Company : but will be enabled to render valuable services to coasting vessels in case of need. > A number of convicts attempted to escape from the colony in a small vessel which they seized at Freemantle. Fortunately they were overpowered, and all recaptured, save one. The total exports for the colony for the year ending 30th September, 1864, amounted to £135,371 ; ditto for 1865, to £144,093 ; giving a balance in favour of 1S65 of £8722. The imports for 1864 were £169,856; those for 1865, £175,708; being au excess over the form...
NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865
NEW ZEALAND. Mr. Stafford has carried out his promise of retrenchment in the Estimates to the amount of a quarter of a million. The next General Assembly meets at Wellington next March, when a proposition for separation of the Northern Island will again be brought forward. This the Government are unlikely to oppose, as the separation scheme proposes having one General Parliament, to meet every four years. In other respects, it will be similar to the Canadian Government scheme. Poverty Bay advices state that several influential chiefs had asked for terms of submission, and the war seemed to be all over, when a large body of the Hauhaus entered the district. Their influence turned the scale, and a resumption of hostilities was decided upon. The settlers, abandoning their homesteads, fled to Turanganui. The latest news asserts that the rebels were burning and destroying h .uses and property belonging to Europeans, and taking prisoners all settlers who did not take warning and leave. Se...
YACHTING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865
YACHTING. THE only formal meeting of the squadron which has taken place since our last was on the 22nd ult., when, obedient to the Commodore's summons, Xariffa, Vivid, Mischief, Crusader, Julia, and Ida, met at the usual rendezvous in Double Bay, for tbe purpose of paying a mark of respect to the late treasurer of the cmb, Mr. Dangar, who was that day leaving per mail steamer for England. Shortly after one o'clock the Commodore signalled from the Alerte, "Up anchor, make sail, follow me," and away they went on the port tack with as line a breeze as could be wished for, just enough to permit gaff topsails to be set with safety. On nearing Bradley's the Vice-Commodore in the Era met the fleet and dropped into position. The fleet then stood down harbor to Shark Point, where the Commodore up helm and stood away for Sydney, at the same time displaying No. 1346 (make more sail), rather a good joke, considering that each ves- sel was staggering along with as much as she could carry, but th...
TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865
TASMANIA. The Lyster Opera Company is again to visit Hobart Town, opening a short subscription season early in the month of Feb- ruary. The young salmon which have been hatched in the Tasmanian .waters are doing well, but are much preyed on by aquatic birds, of which the cormorant appears to be the most injurious. The Government, in order to relieve the distress of the unem- ployed j has consented to find work for a number of men on the roads at 5s¿ a day. &lt; Mr. Wilson has been returned for Hobart Town by a majority of 44 over his opponent Mr. Fysh. The Executive Council having refused to interfere in the case of the convict Griffiths, sentenced to death for the murder of two children^ at Glenorchy, the unfortunate wretch was hanged at Hobart Town on the 2nd instant. A whaling company, with a capital of £60,000, has been pro- jected at Hobart Town. The annual anniversary regatta was held at Hobart Town on . the 5th instant. There was some very good sport. .
