The Dargo flows through a tract of dense scrub, intersected by lofty ranges, and ' the country is thickly wooded to the brink of the stream. The method of washing the auriferous earth, to ob- tain the concealed gold, as represented in the sketch, is a very common one. A shoot formed of hollowed trunks of trees or bark, when this material can be found of sufficient durability, is placed in immediate communication with the river, slightly below t...

On the first day, Captain Robinson, late of the brig Curlew, was convicted of the wilful murder of Thomas Griffiths, chief mate of the same vessel.

BURNING OF THE ANCHOR MILLS, BATHURST ST. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1866
BURNING- OF THE ANCHOR MILLS, BATHURST ST. I SHORTLY after 10 o'clock on the night of the 16thult., the alarm bells gave warning that a fire had broken out, and almost instantaneously the western sky reflected such a glare of light as to indicate the direction of the conflagration, and awakened apprehensions as to its extent. Unfortunately, from some cause or other, which those sapient individuals the city councillors can best explain, the water was turned off from the city, and although the engines were on the spot with remarkable celerity nothing could Le done until the flames liad complete mastery over the building. . The Mills, which were leased to Mr. Wearne, had a frontage of 30 feet by about 150 in depth and about 35 feet in height, and contained all the appliances for carrying on a large business. The three upper stories were filled with bread stuffs, and at the time the fire broke out grinding was goingon, and about a dozen men were at work there. The fire began in | a heap...

ST. VALENTINE'S EVE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1866
ST. VALENTINE'S EVE. BY F. S. WILSON. ST. VALENTINE'S EVE !: liow my liearfc-pulses quiver Eor happy clays, gone like a wave from the beach, When the whisper of winds, and the rush of the river, Awakens sweet memory's dreams into speech ! They bring back a tale of affection requited They linger, like sim-streaks reluctant to leave And tell of the time when, with feelings united, We rambled the shore on St. Valentine's Eve ! Honey-birds loitered to suck at the wattle, And parrots flashed forth with their feathers of fire ! Where the leaf-broken light Avas beginning to mottle A magical network on brushwood and briar. Down in the cedar glen creepers Avere clinging, Tossing their shining bells, tender and SAveet ; While the rustle of reeds, and the hidden creek's singing, Mingled their sounds Avith the fall of our feet ! And I thought that the star-blossoms shaking above me With crimson and green might a garland enweave ; .But, Avith light on my path and a loved one to love me, A bright...
ORIGINAL POETRY. TWO VISIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1866
ORIGINAL POETRY. TWO VISIONS. As I sat one evening gazing at the dying embers' flame, My fancy saw two pictures, distinct, and yet the same The one, a vision of the past-of what has gone away, Foreshadowed, but the second-was the prophet of to-day. I graved them each upon my brain, in lines both deep and true, And a copy of the pictures twain I'm etching noAV for you. I saw myself kneel weeping beside a curtained bed, Whereon was laid a dying girl, her spirit all but fled ; Her gentle eyes were on my face, her hand was clasped in mine, As a holy priest read sacred words of grace and love divine ; And her father and her mother knelt and cried to Heaven in vain To give their darling treasure back,-to see her smile again. . I tried to join them in their prayer, but when I saw her eyes Look longingly towards Heaven-to the blue etherial skies ; When I thought of all the trouble that is in this world of care, And the all-transcendent happiness the angels taste of there ; Tho' my heart was...

LORD PALMERSTON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1866
LORD PALMERSTON. THIS statesman, the news of whose death caused such a pro- found sensation throughout the world, was the elder son of the late Viscount Palmerston, and was born on the 20th October, 1784. His education was commenced at Harrow, continued at the University of Edinburgh, and was completed at the Univer- sity of Cambridge. So far back as the year 1806, when the formation of the Grenville administration obliged Lord Henry Petty, on his accession to the office of Chancellor of the Ex- chequer, to appeal to his constituents, Lord Palmerston, then little more than of age, contested with him the representation of that University ; and, being unsuccessful, was fain for a time to hold a seat for the pocket borough of Bletchingly. In the succeeding Parliament he was returned for Newport, Isle of Wight, which he continued to represent until elected member for the University of Cambridge. On the formation of the Duke of Portland's administration, Lord Palmerston, who had displaye...
POLITICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1866
POLITICAL. WHEN we closed our last month's summary, Parliament had adj nirned, ostensibly to enable the Ministry to decide on their future course of action, but really to enable the Governor to consider Mr. Cowper's suggestion of a dissolution. His Excel- lency having declined to adopt this course, the Ministry tendered their resignation on the 15th, without advising him to send for any member of the Assembly. This does not appear to have been of much consequence, as the Governor at once sent for Mr. Martin, and requested him to undertake the formation of a cabinet. When the House met on the 16th ult., Mr. Cowper announced his resignation, and the steps taken by His Excel- lency, but which for a few days woidd be resultless, in conse- quence of bereavement in Mr. Martin's family. He therefore moved that the House adjourn for one week. The opportunity was too good for David Buchanan to omit disgusting the House by a lavish expenditure of Billingsgate expletives, in which he is always...

RETROSPECT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 February 1866
RETROSPECT. His Excellency Sir John Young, accompanied by Lady Young, Miss Taylour, and Mr. Tur- ville, left by train on the 1st instant for Goul- burn. It is understood that His Excellency and suite will remain six weeks or two months in the Soxithern districts. The Crown law officers have decided that the new ad valorem duties are to be charged on the market value in Sydney of the goods imported. This decision has caused a consider- able amount of dissatisfaction, as hitherto the duties were collected on the invoice prices. |g The office of Under Colonial Secretary, recently resigned by Mr. Owen, has been filled by the appointment of Mr. Henry Halloran, late Secretary at the Surveyor-General's Office. The duties of the Under-Secretary ship have latterly been discharged by Mr. Vallack, the chief clerk, who retires on full salary, after thirty-nine years Government service. It is not intended to make any appointment in Mr. Vallack's place, nor in the room of Mr. M. Lennon, recently ...
