VIEW IN WOLLONGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866
VIEW IN WOLLONGONG. THE Beaport of the Illawarra district is still, ' ;and probably ai- rways will be, known by its original native name. It is sit- uated about 40 mile's south of Sydney, on the eastern slope of mount Keira, which rises up from the shore of the Pacific, and forms a promi- nent landmark to the passing mariner. In the vicinity of the town are several extensive coal mines,nowbeing worked advan- tageously, and also a factory for manufacturing kerosine ' oil from rock petro- . leum, a deposit of which exists : near American creek.

RELIGIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866
RELIGIOUS. A tea and public meeting was held in the Bathurst-street Baptist Church, on Thursday evening, 15th ult., to commemo- rate the twelfth anniversary of the pastorate of the Rev. James Voller. Mr. Illidge occupied the chair on the occasion. On the platform were the Revs. Messrs. Sunderland (of Melbourne), Dr. Lang, J. Graham, Slatyer, Dougall, Hinton, and Pidgeon.

S. Cozens and family to this city. After tea, the Rev. J. B.

THE POND HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866
THE POND HOUSE. FoKTY years ago I was placed as junior clerk in the house of Aycrigg and Co., who will be well remembered as leading mer . chants of the time. The first year of my service with the house was marked by an incident, so strongly fastened on my memory, productive of such great consequences to all concerned, and so powerfully recurring to night, that I shall use my sleepless hours in putting upon paper what comes up in my brain with the vividness of yesterday. My fellow clerks were Jared Palmer and Wilson Elliott. Two men more entirely dissimilar in style and habit it would be impossible tó fiad, and yet these two were the firmest friends -more, I may say, like brothers than otherwise. Palmer was the eldest. He was of a quiet undemonstrative manner ; more given to musing absent-mindedness than any other peculiarity -laughing seldom, and apparently enjoyed a silent sociality with more relish than scenes of merriment and pleasure. We spoke of Palmer as of one who was destin...
CORRESPONDENCE. POLITICAL CONSISTENCY. To the Editor of the "Illustrated Sydney News." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866
CORRESPONDENCE. POLITICAL CONSISTENCY. To the Editor of the " Illustrated Sydney JVeivs." j SIR,-It is with some satisfaction that I observe amongst ' our politicians of all creeds, within and without parliamentary walls, a growing disposition to be more respectful of opposing opinions. If this effect is fairly attributable to the financial difficulties from which we are recovering, we shall have n0 cause, when the waters are smooth again, to repent having been temporarily drawn -within the eddies of a fiuancial maelstrom ; for I cannot but consider the chasm which exists between the opinions of such clasifications of men as 'Freetraders' and 'Pro. tectionists ' as prejudicial to the country's Avelfare. It is no wonder that so little political business should be transacted, and important measures postponed, from session to session, whilst men are so ultra in their pet opinions on the one side or the other : it is even a matter of regret that the poisonous designa- tions should have ...

LITERATURE. THE DUEL. BY EDWARD HUANTHWAYT, AUTHOR OP "THE WAYWARD HEART," &C. O we shall not lose you so soon as we expected, Amy. You cannot go by the Flinders, after all.'' The postman's knock had disturbed the breakfast party at Greatelms ; the impor- tant ceremony of unlocking the bag, and the first glance at their correspondence had passed in solemn silence, till the master of the house, a bluff, hearty-looking coun- try gentleman spoke as above. " I am sorry for that, uncle. Why is it ? I thought it was all arranged," said the younger of the two ladies who sat at table with him, while a look of almost child-like nOt-nlm-lPO VinrrlW i-lnt-mof-nrl frr>,Y> tTlonllnrm of her bright young face, framed as it were with rippling bands of golden hair.

Of course, ...

VIEW ON THE LOWER MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866
VIEW ON THE LOWER MUR . RAY. OUR artist hag selected for his illustration one of the niost pic turesque spots on the River Murray. This noble stream stretches for 1600 miles to the northern boun- dary of Victoria ; it then enters South Australia, and its total 1_LU i.1_ lengtn to tue sea is 3400 miles. Its chief tributaries are the Murrumbidgee and thé Darling, which join it from the north. Pish and wüd fowl abound in those portions of the river far removed from the set- tlements, and the blacks practise very ingenious methods for catching both. They appear, to be remarkably skilful in the management of the tiniest and most fragile of canoes, in which, they sally forth on the river in quest of game. Some of the scenery is very beautiful. The surrounding country is chiefly composed of one continued succession of hill and dale, abun- dantly fertile, and covered plentifully with grass. The country is more or less open, and, as is characteristic of Australian scenery, never crowded with...
SCENE FROM ARRAH-NA-POGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 March 1866
I- - I SCENE FROM ARRAH-NA-POGUE. WE present our readers with one of the most striking scenes m the sensationally-constructed drama which has enriched the. lawyers; attracted the public, and proved satisfactory to the managers of both theatres for nearly three weeks. Our engrav ing represents the closing scene of the first act, where Arrali is accused by Feeney of having possession of stolen money, a charge at which all present stand aghast, and which pro- vokes in the breast of Shaun the Post mingled feelings of trust and suspicion.-: The former triumphs, and Shaun surrenders himself as a victim to save the life aiid honor of his bride. Mr.- (^Neil's portraiture of Shaun the Post is one of the best things ever done at the Victoria, and the scenery and mount iogs have never been surpassed in the colony.

NEW PUBLICATIONS. THE New South Wales Gazetteer, 748pp., 8vc, F. F. Balliere: Melbourne and Sydney.. We have been favoured by the pub- lisher-with an early copy of No. 2of the ColonialGazetteers. Itisnot too much to say that Mr. Whitworth, the compiler, has, in the volume before us, eclipsed his previous effort ; and the experienoe acquired in the compilation of the Victorian Gazetteer has been used to such good advantage that it would bs almost impossible to suggest any improvement upon the present volume. It is es- sentially a gazetteer-not one of the tiny pocket volumes we have heardj dubbed with that title, but a standard work of re- ference, as useful in the education of the young as it ia valuable to the more mature knowledge-seeker. One of the best maps of New South Wales ever published accompanies i each volume.
