FACETIAE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 26 November 1853

FACE Tm. A CROW'S COURT MARTIAL.-Well, I have heard the crows talk to each other, and seen them plant sentries out when they seed me a watchin' of them, and once I actily saw them hold a court martial. The old veterans came from all the parts about here, and from all the islands, and bluffs, and shores, up and down ; and the culprit hung his head down, and looked foolish enough you may depend. What he had done, I don't know. Whether he had run ¿if with ánothér crow's wife, or stole a piece of meat, or went to sleep when he was on guard, or what, I don't know, but arter consultin' together, they turned to and fell on him, and killed him, and then adjourned the court, and dispersed ; that'Sí» natural fact. -Sam Slick's Wise Saws. ASTOUNDING STATEMENT.-During a discussion between Drs. Draper and Watson, at Boston, United States, Dr. Watson stated that, in the course of four years and a half, he had taken from the citizens of Boston, and vicinity, one hundred barrels of blood, and had a...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 26 November 1853

NEW ZEALAND. Tlie Lyttleton Times says-" The first vessel bona fide built of New Zealand timber, and entirely by Canterbury industry, in this port of Victoria, was launched amid the cheers and vivas of a large group of spectators, the animating strains of our improving and admirable amateur band, and the fervent good wishes for the suc- cess of the little craft, and her worthy and industrious owners." The same journal states that a private theatrical club was about to be formed in Lyttleton. Intelligence has been received from Auckland and Wellington to the latter end of October, from which we learn that Mr. Busby had carried a motion for an address to the Queen, praying for a separation of the northern from the southern provinces of New Zealand. Mr. Superintendant Fitzgerald had opened the session of the Provincial Council at Canterbury. The Council had adopted all the standing rules and orders of the House of Commons, even to the privilege of wearing hats in the House, except in p...

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 26 November 1853

TASMANIA. The funeral of Captain Pegus, late Governor of the gaol at Oatlands, took place on Wednesday, 30th ultimo, and was we be- lieve, numerously and respectably attended. The Launceston Chronicle says that a curious circumstance is o connected with the wrecks of the Helena, and Posthumous.; Cap- tain Brown, of the Helena, and Captain Brace, of the Posthumous, had been wrecked a short time previously almost on the same day. They afterwards got command of these vessels-sailed for New Zealand within twenty-four hours of each other, and were again sufferers, by a similar casualty, almost on the same date. Scarlet fever has made its appearance in Launceston. Two armed ruffians deliberately knocked off the irons of a prisoner named Stephenson, while at work, in the presence of the overseer and his whole yang. It appears that they had previously asked the overseer to be allowed to see him, which, being contrary to the rules of the convict department, was of course refused. The oc- cur...

ORIGINAL POETRY. LOVE'S LAST PRAYER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 26 November 1853

ORIGINAL POETRY. \ LOVE'S LAST PRAYER. . r ; ; '"Remember!"-'twas her latest word-- ' As if I could forget ' J} The perish'd bliss, the woe incurr'd, ? ' . .. ¡ ? The frowning future's threat. f "Remember!"-and to heaven above ; She pointed her white hand, , "While an eternity of love, With beauteous sorrow grand, Was gazing at me from her eye, Was pale upon her cheek, And from her lips, in agony, All vainly strove to speak. - "Remember!"-oh, that word of woe, Love's saddest, last command, That farewell, and the lifted snow Of that wan wasted hand. More thrill'd my breast, more touch'd my heart, And led my spirit hisrher, Than ever preacher's solemn art, Or tall cathedral spire. And still, if e'er my faithless soul Forgets the buried worth ; Or, sway'd by matter's gross control, Stoops grov'lling to the earth : Those low pathetic tones I hear, Remurmur'd from the grave ; I see, through many a new-bom tear, That white hand's upward wave. IONOTUS.

NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 26 November 1853

NEWCASTLE. NEWCASTLE, formerly known as King's Town, is a free port in the County of Northumberland. It is situated about eighty miles from Sydney, at the mouth of the Hunter, which, rising in the Liverpool Range, passes through a fertile and extensive tract of country, and receiving below the thriving inland town of Mait- land, two other navigable rivers — the Williams, and the Patterson — here, at length, disembogues into the Pacific. Newcastle is the seat of a bishopric, and is thus entitled to the appellation of " a city," although us yet one of the smallest in the British Dominions, — its population being probably not more than sixteen or seventeen hundred souls. Its chief importance is un- doubtedly derived from large adjacent coal fields, which form the   chief supply of that species of fuel to the colony, and which will doubtless materially contribute to its advance in wealth and con- sideration, from the large consumption of coal — consequent upon recent additi...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 26 November 1853

NEWS OF THE WEEK.. WYATT V. LEES.-DISMISSAL FOR AN ALLEGED ASSAULT. A considerable concourse of friends, acquaintances, and the usual"' { curious crowd,' assembled yesterday afternoon at the Police Office, to hear the above paltry case. The condensed evidence that we give will show the ' casus belli,' and that the ' onus probandi'' reflected anything but credit upon the bringer of the charge.: Mr. Holroyd, for Mr. Gr. R. Nichols, conducted the plaintiffs case, and Mr. Martin defended Mr. Lees. Mr. Wyatt stated, that on Thursday evening, between 9 and 10 o'clock, he met Mr. Lees in the entry to the Theatre, and that Mr. L. commenced, a badinage against him for his refusal to allow him a free admittance. Pie, Mr. Wyatt, said, ' don't bother me,' and attempted'to pass; but: Mr. L. would not allow him. Whilst thus detained against his will, Mr. L. gave utterance to such strong remarks, as shewed he was thoroughly acquainted-with Mr. W.'s biography, and unwill- ing to be thus convicted w...

THE NATIVE ARTS. NO. I. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 26 November 1853

THE NATIVE AllTS. I NO. I. IN wandering over this vast continent, we cannot fail to be struck with its utter absence of ancient remains. No sign of antiquity exists-not a structure of former art. A piece of common pottery would be an object of interest, and set us questioning: "Who made it, and how long is it since it was constructed ?" The native graves-the only artificial elevations we can trace, are of recent date. But, if the field of speculation is limited, it is likely to become lessened ; as the aborigines have almost relinquished the little attempts at art we find. We have mentioned the graves as the only durable constructions existing, and will' devote the pre- sent paper to the subject, reserving the articles of dress, and domestic and war implements, for a future number. Sir T. L. Mitchell describes the Tombs on the Bogan as ' covered like our own, and surrounded by curved walks and or- namented grounds. On the Lachlan, under lofty mounds of earth, seats being made around...

THE LAW OF RETRIBUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 26 November 1853

THE LAW OF RETRIBUTION. AN unreasoning and maudlin sympathy with crime seems to be spreading with the diffusion of crime.itself. If we had only one murder in a couple of years, we could be content to denounce the murderer as an execrable wretch, and to regard his execution as the most proper and natural thing-in the world; but when within a year half-a-dozen murders or so occur, the perpetrators are merely the "in- heritors of criminal propensities," they become objects of interest rather than anything else, and are very cruelly treated indeed in being delivered over to the hangman. Quite a new light seems to have dawned upon some per- sons. They have made the very remarkable discovery that education is a good thing and a great preventive of crime ; and--as not unfrequently happens in such cases they are so charmed with this very original idea that they have wholly surrendered themselves to it--that they see it alone, and nothing but it-until they have at last come to consider it as...

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AUSTRALIA. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1853. AUSTRALIAN ENTERPRISE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 26 November 1853

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1853. AUSTRALIAN ENTERPRISE. IT has been frequently said of late, in différent journals, that Yankee notions are coming upon the colony-that it is in danger of being inundated with a flood of Yankee ideas. We have no ap- prehension of this. A great spot-a tremendous spot-on the sun of America obscures it in the eyes of Englishmen ; and whenever they look towards it, shine as it may for Yankee vision, these English eyes can see nothing but that gigantic, that black-very black-spot of slavery. Until that spot is removed, Englishmen cannot acknowledge that the American sun has any just preten- sion to be considered a sun at all. This, at least, is our opinion on the subject, and in this opinion we think that most of our readers will concur. But, however else we may be supposed to resemble the Yankees, in one point the most skilful detector of hidden analogies will fail to discover between the two countries the slightest similitude. There is not among us the least...

SINGULAR ACT OF BRAVERY.—ENCOUNTER WITH A SHARK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 26 November 1853

SINGULAR ACT OF BRAVERY.-ENCOUNTER WITH A SHARK. The following adventure in the Mediterranean we transcribe al- most literally from an account forwarded by a comrade of the young man, whose bravery it records, who is stationed with his regiment at Corfu, and who is a son of Mrs. Flowers, chimney sweeper, Theatre-street, in this town. It being a very fine day, with a fair wind, five young soldiers, by name Privates Edmund Flowers of the 31st Regiment, a native of Warwick, Thomas M'Dermont, Rowland Hanson, and Charles Woodcroft of 48th Regiment, and natives of Ludlow in Shropshire, and William Cliber, a native of Leamington, not having met with one another since their enlistment, assembled together foran evening's amuse- ment, and started in a boat. The sea being very calm, the boat ' light, and a fair wind, they proceeded at a rapid rate for some distance, when all at once the boat received a sudden shock, as if it had run upon a rock, which nearly capsized her. M'Dermont i having lo...

BALMAIN REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 December 1853

BALMAIN REGATTA. Much against our wish and will we are necessarily compelled to give but a very brief account of these races. Want of space is in this instance our master. Suffice it then to say, that this regatta has been one of the best conducted that has ever yet taken place in this or any oilier colony. The programme was first rate, the dis- tances and ground of the various races well and carefully selected and determined on, and the day's sport probably unequalled. The joyous faces, the expressions of contentment heard on every side from the highest to the more humble class of spectators gave every evidence that all were more than pleased with the exertion of the stewards and the general promoters of this noble sport. Well and bravely done, Balmain ! A noble example has been shewn by a few spirited individuals, let others take a lesson. We should be wanting in courtesy, did we not mention the worthy Captain of the Hamlet (flag ship) ; he was here, there, and everywhere, trying ...

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. Mu. COLEMAN JACOBS.-We have reason to believe that this celebrated pianist is about to arrange another series of concerts in Sydney. He had been for some time in a delicate state of health, and contemplated leaving- for India for change of climate, but the arrival of a near relative from New Zealand, has induced him to prolong his stay in Sydney. . He is at present engaged giviiu les- sons on* the pianoforte, at his private address in William-street. We need not say that the elite of Sydney will readily patronise Mr. Jacobs whenever he announces his first public concert. NEW YORK SERENADERS.-The farewell benefit of Mr. J. E. Kitts took place on Monday evening, as announced in our last, when we were glad to sae such a good house, although, from his recognised popularity, this was no more than we anticipated. On Thursday evening, Mr. J. W. Heading, (we believe the oldest de- lineator of negro character in the colony,) took his farewell benefit, and, as we expected, ...
