H. R. H. PRINCE ALERED. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1866

H. H.H. PRINCE ALERED. PRINCE ALFRED ERNEST ALBERT was born on the 6th of August, 1844. On finish- ing his education, he entered the Royal Navy as midship- man, and has gone through the various grades of the service to that of captain, the rank which he now holds. It is said that he will take his seat in the House of Lords as a peer of the realm, during the present sitting of Parliament ; and hopes are entertained that at no very dis- tant day, he may be induced to visit Atistralia, and have an op- portunity of judging whether the Anglo-Saxon race has been deteriorated by the sunny cli- mate of this far-off land. HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS PRINCE ALFRED.

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

AQUATICS. ' A RACE for £100, between Donnelly and Connor v. Booker and M'Leer, came off over the lisual course on the Parramatta River, on Saturday afternoon, ! the 14th . ultimo, which resulted in a splendid race and a victory to M'Cleer and Booker. The steamer Black Swan conveyed some sixty persons to see the event. Shortly after the steamer's arrival, the boats pulled out from the shore, and-, after a false start, got off, M'Cleer and Booker .slightly leading ; passing the wharf, they were over, half a boat's length ahead, and their lead increased to the next point, where they drew clear. On passing Glades- ville Connor and Donnelley put on a spurt, and drew up along- side, but were again left behind, and M'Cleer and Booker' arrived at the winning point about twenty-five yards ahead. Time, 26 minutes, against a strong flood tide. Another match has since been made between the same crews. 'fy.

MOUNT WINGEN, NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1866

MOUNT WINGEN; NEW SOUTH \VALES. THE only volcano yet known,to exist in Australia is that bear- ing tlie above title. It is situated about 12 miles from Murrurundi, near the head of the Page, an affluent of the Hunter, in lat. 31° 54' S., lon. 15° 56' E. It was discovered in ISIS, and from that time to the present has been in a state of combustion. There exists at present what is supposed to have been the ancient crater, but the subterraneous tires appear to, have long since worn out their fury in that direction) and are at present raging nearly a thousand feet further south, higher up the mountain. Through the great fissures in the ground can be heard the fire roaring beneath like an immense furnace, and to such tremendous depth has it penetrated in some places that if a large stone is thrown down it cannot be heard to touch the bottom, but the sound gradually dies away in the depths below. In others, a stone thrown down immediately explodes with a noise like a muffled gun. The grou...

QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1866

QUEENSLAND. PARLIAMENT was opened by His Excellency Sir George Bowen, on the 12th ult., with the following speech : HONORABLE GENTLEMEN OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL, AND GENTLEMEN OF THE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY, It is with much satisfaction that, after another year of con- tinued progress, I again meet you in Parliament. Papers having reference to our colonial defences will be laid before you. I recommend you to appoint a joint committee of both Houses to inquire and report in what manner the general protection of Queensland can be best secured. A similar course was recently adopted in the neighbouring colonies. The stream of immigration still continues to flow fast into this colony. Queensland presents a wide field for a portion of the industrial population of the mother country ; but it has become a matter of grave doubt whether the practical working of the system under which our immigration has been carried on for some time, past will realise all the beneficial effects antici- pated from...

'PLENTY PATTER.' [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 May 1866

r 'PLENTY PATTER' (FROM A DRAWING BY MR. GEORGE LACEY.) 'PLENTY PATTER.' I AMBUSH scene, sketched irom life, represents an aborigmal family returning from the chase, accompanied by the inevitable mob of mongrel-bred curs, always to be found in and about a black fellow's gunyah. « Plenty patter,' Analice, plenty of food, is not a matter of every-day occurrence with the natives, who are too lazy to hunt for food until they really feel the .cravings of hunger; and when they are fortunate enough to j obtain a good supply, such as tbat depicted in our illustration, they surfeit themselves, and then again go without food for several days. The Riverine Association has determined to prosecute the agi- tation for separation from New South Wales with renewed vigour. In the year 1845, Captain Sturt, on his return to the Darling from the desert interior, launched his sea boat on the waters of the Depot Glen, in the Grey Ranges, for the purpose of lighten- ing his equipment. After the lapse of m...
