HOISTING THE BRITISH FLAG AT FIJI. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 14 November 1874
IHOISTING THE BRITISH FLAG AT FIJI. I THE very delicate yet firm I manuer in which SirHercu I les Robinson carried out his I Fijian mission entitles him I to some reward at the hands I of the imperial Government, I whose power has now heen I made manifest amongst the I islands of the Pacific Ocean I in a way that must for I ever prevent a wide prac I tice of that system of I slavery and wholesale mur I der which has distinguished j the inhabitants of the Fijian I and Tongan groups above I the aboriginal natives of I most other countries sur I rounding them. To the un ! initiated Fiji was supposed I to he only a sort of City I of refuge for levanting I debtors whose quarters had I grown inconveniently warm; I to the dishonest trader if I was a paradise, wherein the I most unscrupulous might I reap the greatest profit; I while the colonies them ! selves scarcely considered I that there was very much to I be made out of annexation I beyond securing a coaling I station and meeting-place...
A ROMAN CATHOLIC CONVENT—TAKING THE VEIL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 14 November 1874
A ROMAN CATHOLIC CONVENT-TAKING THE VEIL. OUR engraving represents a rather uncommon occurrence in Australia, but one with which Roman Catholics on the Continent of Europe are very familiar-the ceremony of taking the veil, by young ladies, who by that act agree to renounce the world and its pleasures, and henceforth devote themselves to a life of useful charity, religious observances, and semi-seclusion. The scene depicted is one which took place lately in the Convent of the Good Shepherd, at Mel- bourne, when two postulants were received into the sister- hood there. The arrangements were upon a grander scale than those of previous similar ceremonies, and many per- sons, relatives and friends of the novices, attended to wit- ness their reception by the Church. Pontifical high mass was celebrated, the musical arrangements being under the direction of Signor Giorza. At the conclusion of the Mass, Archdeacon Slattery addressed the young ladies who were about taking the veil. During the...
THE REGATTA AT BALMAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 14 November 1874
THE "REGATTA AT BALMAIN. THE main event for the Prince of Wales' Birthday is, as a matter of course, the Balmain Regatta, and no matter what the attractions in other quarters may be, or how great the efforts of caterers to draw people away, the 9th of Novem- ber never returns without seeing at Balmain a crowd of enthusiastic citizens, with whom the Regatta is a settled affair. This year the programme of races was particularly lengthy, and additional eckU was given to the whole affair by the attendance of His Excellency Sir Hercules Robinson and several members of the Ministry. The day could not have been finer, nor the arrangements more perfect than they were ; and the scene itself was one of the most enliven- ing that has been observed in our harbour for years. With a desire to afford every convenience possible to visitors, the committee chartered for the day the large mail steamer Mikado, which was fully crowded with gaily dressed groups of ladies and their partners. Amongst the v...
CHALLENGE ROWING CUPS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 14 November 1874
CHALLENGE ROWING CUPS. THE two cups illustrated in these pages are the challenge row- ing cups of the Melbourne Banks and the Public Service clubs ; they were designed and manufactured by Brush and Drummond, Collins-street. The Public Service Challenge Rowing Cup is an especially handsome trophy, unique in design, stands nearly twenty-two inches high exclusive of pedestal, and contains over sixty ouuces of silver. The entries for this challenge cup numbered seven crews from the various departments of the Public service ; the race took place on the 24th October, and was won by the Treasury crew, the crew of the Education department beiug second. The other cup, with the four oarsmen and racing gig on top, is the challenge cup of the Banks Rowing Club. It has already been twice contended for, the present holders being the'Com- mercial Bank crew, the' Bank of New South Wales having been the successful crew on the first occasion.
POST AND TELEGRAPH OFFICES, MARYBOROUGH, QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 14 November 1874
POST AND TELEGRAPH OFFICES, MARY- BOROUGH, QUEENSLAND. MARYBOROUGH, though a very, old town, possesses many tine buildings, hot the least important of which is the post and telegraph offices, erected by Government a couple of years back, for the convenience of the residents in that rapidly-improving district. The offices are most centrally situated, at the corner of Bazaar and Wharf-streets, close to the wharves, Custom House and other Government buildings. To secure stability and comfort, and also for the purpose of more successfully resisting climatic influences, the material used was that calculated in the greatest degree to resist sudden changes of temperature, and the contractor has consequently dealt largely in brick and stucco work. The lower portion of the building in Bazaar-street (on the left of our illustration), is used for telegraphic purposes, while the upper storey is reserved as dwelling apartments for the station master. The Post Office, shewn by the clock in front,...

The Cricket season has now fairly set in, and whether pleasure seekers visit the Albert Ground, the University Oval, the Alliance or any other of the private grounds around Sydney on a Saturday afternoon, they are certain to find, the " elevens " up to their work, and getting through it in a manner quite cheering. Moore Park has become a grand in- stitution, and will eventually become the trysting place for all except the most aristocratic of our clubs, who prefer to take their gentle exercise shielded from the public gaze. This splendid common, about the formation of which so much "bother was made, when Mr. Moore undertook to turn the barren sand hills which occupied its site to some account, is a real ornament to Sydney, besides supplying its citizens with an arena for healthy recreation not to he found else- where in any of the colonies. Since the occupation of Northern Queensland by whites the murders perpetrated by aboriginals have been neither few nor far between. Recently at ...
THE YOUNG MOTHER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 14 November 1874
THE YOUNG MOTHER. (FROM A PICTURE BY M. A. W. BARGE.) THIS work of art was recently exhibited in London, where it met with a favourable reception, both from the public and the critics. The subject of the picture appeals to the hearts of all. Nothing is more attractive than to see a young woman, surrounded with all that can make life pleasant and delightful, showing that she thinks the duties of maternity are not only the most sacred, but also the most pleasant, that she can be called upon to fulfil ; and sacrificing the pleasures of her age and rank in order to devote as much time as possible to the society of her babe. The moral which the artist seeks to teach seems to be, that all ranks, the highest as well as the lowest, have their duties, and that those duties are full of grace and sweetness. The picture of M. Barge was always surrounded in London by a group of ladies, who understood the lesson which the artist desired to teach, and admired the manner in which he had carried out...

A dividend of 15 per cent, per annum, and a bonus of 2^ per cent., was paid to the shareholders. Mrs. Maurice Alexander, in perpetuation of the memory of her late husband, has determined to found a Bursary in connection with the Sydney University. £1090 is to be invested for the purpose, and the interest on that sum will be paid to the Bursar, to enable him to pursue his studies as an undergraduate at one of the affiliated colleges, or such other places as the University selects. The Bursary is to.be held for three years, the nomination being in the hands of the Chancellor and the Senior Professor of Mathematics or Classics. It is intended purposely to benefit young scholars residing at a distance from the metropolis. The friends of Mr. John Sutherland, ...
FEEDING CATTLE ON STRAW. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 14 November 1874
FEEDING CATTLE ON STRAW. I MAXY persons imagine that the manure from straw-fed cat . tie enriches the soil to a far greater extent than it.really 1 does, while, as a fact, it is impossible to get from the straw of white crops enough nourishment to maintain cattle io health and vigour, much less iu a state of profitable growth. We give our cattle food, in order that we may increase their value, and whatever food we give without producing some return, either in increased size or fatness, or in milk, is entirely wasted. There is thus a necessity for mixing with the straw some food of a more nutritious kind, if we would \\: reap a pro lit from the stock that consume it. This it is the practice of all good farmers to do. " .Its value as an article of food is absolutely nothing of itself, for cattle living on it will not yield auy return. The question is, whether we can extract from it a profitable diet, by mixing it with other substances, and whether it does not lose more in value cs man...
THE GROSE RIVER, BLUE MOUNTAINS, N.S.W. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 19 December 1874
THE GROSE RIVER, BLUE MOUNTAINS, N. S. W. THIS scene is another of Mr. Montague's artistic reproduc- tions, and has been taken in a locality celebrated for its pic- turesque and solemnly grand character. The river at this spot is added to by a creek that has wound its way round, the westward base of Mount Hay, and here joined issue with the lonely Grose. Here creek and river have mingled, and scooped out for themselves a sort of bay in the turn of the Mo;mt Hay range, giving the Grose a surface import- ance it does not constantly retain. The spot is attainable from the old Richmond road, about nine miles from the latter, through the mountains, goiug in the direction of Hartley. Such is a specimen of the scenery to be found in . the Blue Mountain ranges, and no one who has frequented . the heights or depths of them under cloudy or hazy aspects, will feel himself at liberty to say the artist has exaggerated even by a little the beauty or grandeur of the scene. It is a poetical picture...
THE "JOLLY" GALOP. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 19 December 1874
THE "JOLLY" GALOP. &nbsp; &nbsp; THIS spirited composition, which is to be found on page 13, is from the pen of Mr. "William Dudgeon, Stethin, Germany, and was dedicated to Miss Ellen H. Mitchell, of Kiama. Although a gallop far above the average merit of those emanating from celebrated composers, it has not hitherto been published. We predict that it will become a favourite in the ballroom ; for the measure, though comparatively sim ple, is brilliant, and such as to provoke dancing. &nbsp;
HARICOT, THE WINNER OF THE MELBOURNE CUP. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 19 December 1874
HARICOT, THE WINNER OF THE' MELBOURNE CUP. HARICOT, the winner of the Melbourne Cup, is by Ladykirk, from Saucepan, by Costerdale, from sister to Gridiron, who again is by Daniel O'Rourke, out of Mouse's dam, by Bay Middleton. - Haricot started once as a three-year-old, and won the Warrnambool All-aged Stakes in a canter, beating King Tom, Planter, and six others. At the V.R.C. meet- ing ran second to Dagworth for the Melbourne Stakes, beat- ing King of the Ring, Lapidist, Speculation, and others. His last most important victory was achieved at Melbourne, when he took the Cup away from a field of the best Austra- lian horses.
A TOUR IN CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 19 December 1874
A TOUR IN CALIFORNIA. FJROM SAN- FRANCISCO TO SAN JOSE, BY DU. M. LINDEMAN. WE liad passed a delightful week in that wonderful city of the Golden.Gate, San Francisco, and its neighbourhood, but an ocean voyage was still reserved for us. For this we were indebted to the kind intervention of our Cousul-Gencral, and to the friendship of Captain Scammon, commander of a cutter in tho service of the Custom House officers of thc United States. On a glorious Thorning, a boat belonging to the Wyandah lay alongside the pier, to take us on board for a voyage to the Farallón Islands, and'to the southern coast. The terraced city, grouped around two mountains, and rising out of the mist, presented a magnificent spectacle. Soon we reached the Wyandah, a handsome steamer of four hundred tons. We were welcomed and received most heartily by Captain Scammon and his officers. The anchor was raised, and we steamed through the midst of the fleet in the road- stead. For three-quarters of au hour we glide ...
THE LATE ANDREW HUME. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 19 December 1874
... THE LATE ANDREW HUME. WHETHER' the story of Classan's existence through the past twenty-five years, away there in the north-western corner of this vast Contineut, was true ; whether the Leichhardt relics, reported as having been discovered and afterwards stolen, ever had an existence except in the imagination of Andrew Hume, must remain for ever a mystery, as the only person to whom the secret was known-viz., Hume himself-died in the midst of work undertaken to prove the truth of his assertions, and the secret has died with him. Whatever faith existed amongst the few people who believed a portion of Hume's narrative still remains ; and though there is no longer any chance of the truth concerning Classan or Leich- hardts papers being discovered, a proportion of those doubters who, from the commencement, looked upon the returned bushman's story as one of great improbability, are willing to admit that Hume believed in at least a portion of the tale he told to others. Only a few day...
