NEW PUBLICATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1866

NEW PUBLICATIONS. A CANTATA suit- able to the Christ- mas season, en- titled 'Under the Holly,' has been written by Mr. R. P. Whitworth, for the Tonic Sol-Pa Society, by whom it will be brought out at their next concert, on the 30th instant. The libretto is of great merit, .and if the composer does jus- tice to it, we con- fidently predict its entire success. The 'Bronze Trumpet ' is the title of a preten- tious poetical satire, just pub- lished. The pub- lic are not favour- ed with the name of either author or publisher, but ¡¡aaa n 1a.ivm>r am rm nf", hf of the former we can state that he possesses a larger amount of the metal most used in the composition of his trumpet than of brains. The work is at best a series of silly ittacks on men possessing far more ability than the author, but whom the latter considers he has a right to attack, either to gratify personal spleen, or as a means of 'raising the wind.'

AQUATICS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1866

AQUATICS. A RACE in outrigger wager boats took place on the Parramatta river, on the 16th ult., between W. Hickey, and Harry White, for £100 a-side. The course was as usual from Charity Point to the Brother's, a distance of about 3½ miles. An excellent start was effected, and both men went to work at a strong pace, pul- ling very evenly for a short disbauce, when Hickey went to the front, but fouled a boat, and was thus detained until White had a strong lead, which it was thought would give him the race, but Hickey put on a tremendous spurt, caught his opponent in about a quarter of a mile, soon passed him, and won as he liked. The result of Hickey's performance in this, his first appearance in wager boats, is that he has since been matched to pull Dick Green on the 20th inst., over the same course, for £100 a-side, and the championship of the Colony. Both are in active training, Green under the tuition of Tom McGrath, and Hickey under the care of Pat Murray.

NATIVES DRYING THEIR DEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 January 1866

NATIVES DRYING THEIR DEAD. THIS is one of the sepulchral rites adopted by some of the aboriginal tribes. The body is first divested of the intestines and any particles of fat. It is then smeared with an earthy pigment and placed on a raised platform composed of branches, under which a slow fire is kept burning for several days, care-   fully tended by members of the tribe, until the body is quite smoke-dried, after which it is carefully covered over until, ac- cording to the native belief, the time of transformation has ar- rived and the deceased returns to life as a whitefellow.

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1866

MISCELLANEA. .NEW ICE MAOIIIN"E.-A machine for the pro- duction of ice on the large scale has been tried lately at Paris with great success. Its peculiar feature is that, unlike all the machines whose action depends on the circvdation of ether or ammonia, it requires no pump whatever. Its effect is produced by means of heat, and the cir- culation of the vapour of amylic ether (oxide of amyle). The latter is obtained, as usual, by the action of. sulphuric acid on amylic alcohol, or that derived from potatoes ; and it is liquefied by, transmission, at a pressure of from five to seven atmospheres, into a reservoir, placed linder the cylinder. Af ter having returned te the state of - gas, and formed ice, when a cock is opened, it passes from this reservoir into the spiral ducts which surround the quadrangular reservoirs, which are filled with the water that is to be congealed, and are immersed in a solutiou of salt that will not freeze. After the ether has been vapourised in the spirals...

ANNIVERSARY R[?]GATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1866

ANNIVERSARY Ri'GATT A. THIS aquatic festival, the most popular feature of the anniver- sary celebration, took place as usual on the 26th ultimo. The morning was dark and threatening, but fortunately the rain kept off until night. The wind was rather light to test the capabdi ties of the sailing craft, but on the whole the sport was excellent, and the harbour, as seen from the flagship Nourmahal, presented a most animated appearance. The Governor and suite honoured the flagship by a visit, and lunched on board. The following are the various races of the day : FIRST JR A CE.-All youths under 16 years of age, pulling a pair of sculls in dingies not exceeding twelve feet on keel.

RIGHT REV. DR. PATTESON, BISHOP OF MELANESIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1866

RIGHT REV. DR, PATTES ON, BISHOP OF MELANESIA. IT lias been mainly through the instrumentality of Dr. Patteson, the Bishop of Melanesia, that the people of Australia have become in any way familiarised with the mission work which has been, and is still being carried on in the islands of the Western Pacific, known as Melanesia. It is now some sixteen years since Dr. Selwyn, the metropolitan Bishop of New Zealand, first endeavoured to do something towards introducing Chris- tianity amongst the inhabitants of these far away islands. That most excellent prelate left New Zealand in a small schooner of twenty-two tons, in which he sailed 1400 miles, navigating the vessel himself with all the skill of an accomplished mariner. With that faith and courage which characterises him, Dr. Sel- wyn entered heart and soul into the expedition, and was the first Englishman who undertook a journey amongst these islands. He went down and brought away some of the islanders with him, as it was impossible...
