TRUE TO THE LAST! OR AUNT MILLY'S CHRISTMAS-BOX, AN AUSTRALIAN CHRISTMAS STORY. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865

TRUE TO THE LAST ! OR, AUNT MILLY'S CHRISTMAS-BOX, AN AUSTRALIAN CHRISTMAS STORY. i BY F. S. WILSOJST. CHAPTER I. Ah ! what pleasant visions haunt me, As I gaze upon tho sea ! All the old romantic legends AU my dreams, come back to me."-LONGFELLOW. IT was Christmas Eve in the sunny land of Australia ! Christ- mas Eve, too, in the charming district of Kiama, with its grassy western slopes, and eastern line of cliffs, and sand, where the billows sparkle and toss right merrily ! Christmas Eve's sun shining warmly on the landscape's smil- ing features, and no less warmly on the glowing face of Mr. Phelim O'Grady, as he alternately turns up a spadeful of earth in Mr. Grafford's nursery-garden, and gives an admiring glance at Mrs. Grafford's nursery-maid, who is strolling with a crowd of boisterous youngsters down to the sea-shore. Whether the pleasant prospect spread before him, or the ap- proach of the coming festal season, or the sight of the gentle maiden aforesaid, touched the heart-...

CHAPTER XVII. THE CURTAIN FALLS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865

CHAPTER XVII. THE CUHTAIN PALIS. .. ¡sow tue piay is ctoiie : All is well ended."-ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL. "To his eye . There was but one beloved face on earth, And that was shining on him."-BYRON. But it is time to draw in the loose threads of my story, and bid ' good-bye ' to those who have travelled with me through thc foregoing pages. Like a captain who has piloted his vessel safely to port, I cannot but feel regret at parting with the passengers who have sailed with me over the waves of fiction. Like those who take a journey over pur rude Australian roads, we have experienced many rough passages together, which may have sadly shnken our vehicle, but we have safely arrived at our destination, ' the last chapter '-and if the steeds of my story have occasionally . shied' or kicked over the traces, it must be attributed to the author's not being accustomed to drive so many ' in hand.' There was much to do when Mr. Ashworth returned to his station, which he did immediately on rec...

CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865

CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA. " To each, to all-to high, to low, Our greeting is the old one still : The tidings uttered long ago, Of peace and kindness, and good-will. "A merry Christmas, then, to all ? We utter the good wish once more ; For sure the greeting will not pall, Tho'we repeat it o'er and o'er." THE flight of time has brought us to the close of another year, and ere our next issue is in your hands, kind reader, the year 1865 will be numbered with the past ; its Christmas will have been spent, and its festivities will have ceased. Go where you will, wherever Christianity has been established, the same characteristics mark the season. It is looked forward to by young and old with pleasurable anticipations ; and Australians know how to celebrate it as joyously as if we resided in the land which we all claim as our mother country; True, the modes of our festivities differ almost as' widely as tlie seasons differ in which the Australian and the English Christmas occur. In the latte...

BALMAIN REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865

BALMAIN" REGATTA. THIS, the legitimate opening of the yachting season, took place as usual on St. Andrew's Day, and, in accordance with the almost proverbial rule, a 'nor-easter of the stiffest kind blew all day. The water was rather rough for light skiff contests, but for sailing crafts nothing could have been better to test the merits of the various competitors. Great iuterest was created in the open boat race, as in it Tarragon, built by Reynolds, Cinde- rella, by Russell, Clio, by Langford, and the Torment, by Yates, met for the first time, each having a host of admirers, who freely backed their respective fancies. Unfortunately Clio carried away her boom when, bar accidents, the race was well in hand ; and the manner in which the Cinderella was handled destroyed any chance she might have had ; so that, in fact, the Tarragon secured a barren victory over the little Torment, but we feel satisfied that when next the same boats meet there will be a different result. The following i...

OUR COLOURED SUPPLEMENT. "CAPTAIN COOK TAKING POSSESSION OF NEW SOUTH WALES." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865

OUR COLOURED SUPPLEMENT. "CAPTAIN COOK TAKING-. POSSESSION OF NEW SOUTH WALES." SOON after the Emperor Claudius won his final victory over the sturdy Britons, and when the 'Imperial City' was bent upon colonising her newly-acquired possession, I dare say sneerers were common enough. Koman exquisites would feign ignorance of the ' unimportant island's ' existence ; young bloods, whom impecuniosity, and not choice, compelled to take government appointments, would express horror at being sent to such a locality as attaches to an embassy. Those who had been thither, and had returned, would have quite the contrary of complimentary things to say of the new cities, Londinium and Verulam. Romans who had settled in the recently-acquired territory, too, intent on trading speculations, or emigrating thither so as to be out of the way of troublesome creditors, would openly disparage their adopted home, and boast of the Appian way, the Capitol, and the Aventine, to unsophisticated natives. Every...

THE KINDER TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865

THE KINDER TRAGEDY. "WRITERS of fiction and recorders of facts appear to have, of late years, vied in supplying the demand for sensational reading. At one time fiction was the most startling, lt were well if it had continued so ; but, unfortunately for the credit of the present age, stern fact has, within the past few years, eclipsed its rival - startled society by its pictures of the Road tragedy, Dr. Pritchard's case, and many others of a similar hue, display- ing human nature in phases almost too horrible to be real. Happily for Australia, these things were, until the pa&t few days, only known to us by report. Would that they had re- mained so ; but, if we are to believe all the evidence taken in the case just finished at the Water Police Court, this colony is destined to furnish a case more atrocious, more unreal, and more disgusting in its horrible details than any before recorded in the annals of crime. As our space does not admit of a full report, we have en- deavoure...

DAWES' BATTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865

DAWES' BATTERY. IT is creditable to the earlier authorities of New South , Wales, that, however recklessly they sanctioned the aliena- tion of frontage to the harbor of Port Jackson, due care waa taken in the reservation of the points of the several promon- tories on which Sydney stands, as sites for harbor defences. Dawes' Battery, which forms one of the reservations referred to, is situated at the north-western extremity of Sydney Cove, and has the honor of being one of the first efforts at fortification constructed in the colony. As a work of defence it is, in these days of Armstrong guns and Whitworth rifles, considered rude and ineffectual, consisting merely of a rough earthwork on the slope of a hill, having a rising ground in the rear, down which shells would roll into the trenches, and thus render the place untenable by any defending party. It is at present used more as a barrack yard, its contiguity to the artillery barracks render- ing it the most suitable place for keepin...

THE MOA (DIORNIS GIGANTICA). [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865

THE MOA (DIORN1S GIGANTICA). [RESTORED BY PROFESSOR M'COY, OE THE MELBOURNE UNIVERSITY.] THE Moa, or Dior»ls, which, as restored by Professor' M'Coy, forms the subject of an engraving ia our present number, is a gigantic bird indigenous to New Zealand. Hitherto the genus, of which five different species have been recognised, has been considered to be extinct ; but if the reports received from miners travelling between Otago and the gold-fields are to be believed, the 'terrible bird,' as its scientific names describe it, is still a living inhabitant of the Middle Island-several/: accord ing to recent accounts, having been seen stalking across the desolate hills. The restoration, as represented in the engraving, is made to a scale (a figure of a man being introduced to mark the proportion in size) from a consideration of the nearly per- fect skeleton in Loudon, combined with the character of its nearest living allies. The general form, proportions, and pecu- liar unfeathered-like plum...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865

VICTORIA. THE colony is in the midst of -what promises to be the most exciting general election ever held in Australia, and as the issue will probably decide the future financial policy of Victoria, both freetraders and protectionists will exert all their influence to return candidates favourable to their particular views. The crisis is the result of the 'deadlock' precipitated by the obstinacy of a majority of obstructionists in the Upper House, who per- sisted in rejecting the financial measures of the Ministry, and at the same time declined the responsibility of forming a new administration, or suggesting any schemes to supersede those rejected. At first they alleged that the tacking of the Appro- priation and Tariff Bills together was the ground of their oppo- sition, and their apologists said that if the bills were sent up separately they would pass. The Ministry tried this course, and, as was predicted, the Council rejected the Tariff Bill on its second reading by 19 to 5. All...

The sunlight glinted right joyously over the undulating line of "western hills rilling in the background as you glanced from seaward over the quiet little town of Kiama, Here, the dusty red band of road leading inland, stretched abruptly from the foot of the town to the ridge of Pike's Hill, and then fell away quite as suddenly to the green mountain belted slopes and flats of Jamberoo. At different heights on the hill overlooking Kiama, cottages peeped archly from snug coverts of orange trees, and sent up curling lines of smoke to tremble and melt in the breezy air. Over some of the paddocks, shuffling herds of cattle were lazily jogging home to be milked ; while a few bullock teams ...

WOOL DRAYS "GOING TO TOWN." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 December 1865

WOOL DRAYS "GOING TO TOWN." THB progress of a number of wool drays en route from the station to Sydney or Maitland is a bit of Australian bush life, true to nature, and as common as the wool season comes round. By many denizens of the distant bush the wool drays are looked for with as much longing as is the Christmas visit of ' Santa Claus ' in the nurseries of Old England. On former occasions we gave illustrations of sheep washing and sheep shearing. Our present engraving represents the conveyance of wool to market, or, in bush parlance, 'going to town. ' On the more distant stations this is effected by the station bullock teams, on each of which from twelve to twenty bales are placed, and secured by ropes, or substitutes formed of strips of green hide, the whole covered by a tarpaulin. The inevitable 'billy,'the bullock bell, and aundry other et ceteras, are slung from the bottom of the dray, rations for the trip are weighed out and packed, and thus equipped they start on a journe...

THE KINDERS' HOUSE, THE SCENE OF THE ALLEGED MURDER. THE NEW PARLIAMENTARY BUILDINGS AT BRISBANE. OUR Queensland neighbours deserve credit for magnificent intentions. They are following up their extensive railway scheme by the erection of the splendid pile of buildings shown in our engraving. The site is the west end of the Queen's Park, between George-street and the Government Domain. The build- ing forms a quadrangle, having a frontage of 304 ft. by 86 ft. deep, with a magnificent carriage porch 103 ft. high in the centre. The style adopted is the Renaissance. The external walls are of freestone, the internal of rubble.
