BRITISH GLEANINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 December 1853

BRITISH GLEANINGS. We have compiled the following summary from late English papers : The Militia Ballot, Suspension and Militia Law Amendment Bill had passed its third reading in the House of Commons. We learn from the Kentish Gazette of the 23rd August, that the hops continued to improve, and that the crop would far exceed that which was anticipated. The late warm weather had greatly added to the bur, which was then fast coming out in hop. The accounts varied from different parishes in West .Kent. In most instances, the hops continued to progress favourably. The grand cricket match between the county of Kent and the Eleven of England, came off' about the middle of August last. The match occupied three days, when the "Eleven" were declared the winners by one innings and 197 runs. A very serious and fatal accident had occurred at the erecting of the Crystal Palace, Sydenham, on Monday, 15th August, by which twelve lives had been lost. "The accident occured," says the Kentish Gazette,...

VICTORIA BRIDGE BETWEEN EAST AND WEST MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 December 1853

VICTORIA BRIDGE, BETWEEN EAST AND WEST MAITLAND > (SEE NEXT PAGE). VICTORIA BRIDGE BETWEEN EAST AND WEST MAITLAND. THIS Bridge is from an English design materially improved hy the Colonial Architect, E. T. Blackett, Esquire The budding was commenced about the middle of 1851, and finished at a cost of leas than £2,000. A similar bridge is in process of erection at Yass, which it is estimated will cost £8,000. This great difference in the cost is caused, in consequence of the immense rise in the value of labour and price of materials. The bridge which is built in an oblique direction, over Wallis' Creek, is very durable, and well adapted for the purpose for which it was originally intended. The length of it is 170 feet. Besides the carriage-way, there are footpaths on both sides. A grand procession of Odd Fellows, &c.r took place at the completion of it on 21st June, 1852. It was christened by the daughter, of Major Crummer. Part of the cere- mony consisted in breaking a bo...

SHEEP-WASHING AT KIPPILAW. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 December 1853

SHEEP-WASHING AT KIPPILAW. This enjravin r, from a sketch hy T. F. Balcombe, Esq., re- presents sheep-washing on the estate of James Chisholm, Esq., M.L.C. The following descriptive account, which was forwarded with the sketch, may not be uninteresting to our readers : The sheep are parsed from the large yard to the receiving pen, from which they are thrown into an enclosed space in the water, en the side of which men are stationed with long poles, shod with a blunt iron prong, with which they keep the sheep in motion, and prevent them" from resting their heads against the frame-work. They are then passed under the sapplin J or frame-work by means of the pronged pole, to the second enclosure, in which they undergo tlie same treatment, and are, in the same manner, passed to a third, where they are taken by the men, and held under a spout. The last operation cleanses the wool effectually. The sheep are then placed on an inclined plane made of rouiih planking, where they rest until a o...

THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD ON "CRIME AND PUNISHMENT." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 December 1853

THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD ON "CRIME AND PUNISHMENT." OUR contemporary, the Sydney Morning Herald, after pondering ? and revolving" the matter in its editorial mind for nearly a week, has at length attempted a reply to our article of Saturday last, headed "Tan LAW OP RETRIBUTION." But as the force of the earth's attraction varies inversely as the square of the distance, so the force of our contemporary's arguments is in an inverse ratio to the time of prepAration. His article of yesterday may be reduced to the three, following heads. First, he denies that, in the previous article to which, we liad referred, he had treated of the subject of punishment at all, Secondly, lie asserts that human punishments have been frequently harsh and excessive. And thirdly, he has been enabled to " dis- cover the tremendous fallacy that is included in the idea of retri- bution" and he expresses his preference for "theideaof/vew/iiiow." With regard to the first we may observe that our charge against th...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 December 1853

NEW ZEALAND. The New Zeahnider, in speaking of the opening address of the Superintendent of the Auckland Provincial Council, remarks :-' " We believe we only express a very general feeling when we say that it reflected high credit on its author, and was. excellently adapted,, not .merely for its'.immediate purpose, but also, to take rank as a document of permanent importance, the circulation of which in the adjacent colonies, and in other countries, must ma- terially tend to the diffusion of valuable information respecting this Province-both as it is, and as it is likely to be in the future years of rapid advancement, which many evidences warrant us to . anticipate for it." The same journal congratulates the Council " on the favourable position' iii'which'.they are placed-a position which it should not be forgotten; however, they owe in, a large measure to the confi- dence reposed by the Governor in the fitness of the people to exercise the functions of local self-government, and th...

THE CRICKET IN THE WALL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 December 1853

THE CRICKET IN THE WALL. 'Tis tile small voice of the cricket in the crevices of the wall. ( How cheerful is his little song. What is the subject of his lay ? isis he chanting melody in the ear of his lady love, or. is lie pouring out his soul in an evening hymn ? Is he singing the praise of some inighly insect warrior, or lauding the name bf oiie who has gathered wiädom beyond that of his fellows ? Have insects their heroes, their tyrants, their poets, and their orators ! Who can tell ? But : why is it that all living things have glad voices given them ? Why is it, that when the sun has gone down, and the hum of business is still-when mau has withdrawn from the cares and bustle of the day, and the whids have retired to their caves, that the voice of the insect tribes, low and solemn, comes abroad upon the air? Why does not silence come down with the curtain of night, and brood with the darkness over us ? It is that we may not forget the great teachings of nature. The heavens may be...

Traced through thy once dark hair. . : ?.. .. Thy step was lightsome once and gay, ? And timu appeared to fly ; But sorrows must their course betray, >;i And dim the brightest eye. . But still thy faded brow to me W,!f! Looks lovely as before ; !J still recal the past, and see , The smiles that once it wore. Though pain and pleasure, weal and woe, Our heart's allêctions try, We ne'er forget the sunny glow Siled by a mother's eye. 'Twas thy loved form that watched at night Beside my cradle bed, 'Twas thy soft hand that rested light Upon my infant-head ; 'Twas thy sweet voice that taught my prayers, And hushed my every sigh ; And smiles have oft succeeded tears Beneath thy gentle eye. But soon, alas ! an hour may come, O, may it distant be ! " , When thy blest spirit, beckoned home, May leave the world and me. But, mother, fr...

WEEKLY SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 December 1853

WEEKLY SUMMARY. A man named Dennis Finn died suddenly at Bathurst, on the   16th ultimo, from a serious attack of apoplexy, brought on while in a state of intoxication. A fatal accident took place on Sunday afternoon, 20th ultimo. The mail coach, on its upward route to Bathurst," was precipitated into a deep abyss, whilst descending" Mount Victoria, together with driver, horses, and passenyers, by which Mr. Thomas Fitzpatrick lost his life. Of the other passengers, says the Bathurst Free Press, several were more or less injured, but none so seriously as to re- quire medical assistance. Three of the horses were killed on the spot, and the .vehicle, a two-wheeled affair, was dashed" to- pieces. A terrific hail-storm visited Bathurst on Saturday, 19th ultimo, by which, an almost incalculable amount of damage has been done to the crops and vineyards. A man named Joseph Hipkiss was lately bitten by a centipede in the bush, near Bathurst. Dr. Machattie removed the forefinger ...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. WESTERN GOLD FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 December 1853

MINING INTELLIGENCE. WESTERN GOLD FIELDS. Sofala is picturesquely situated on the banks of the River Turon which although a tributary of the Macquarie, is a stream of con- siderable importance. It takes its rise among a huge range of mountains of granite formation, which are more or less auriferous. The township is situated in the centre of the principal Western Gold Fields, and is composed chiefly of stores and public-houses. The latter are fifteen in number, and are generally speaking strong and substantial buildings. There are a number of tents and pri- vate dwellings, inhabited mostly by diggers and their families. The post office, the management of which has recently been en- trusted to Dr. Bell, stands in a central part of the town, which can also boast of two churches and a chapel. Many people may suppose that the minds of the people at the diggings are too much engrossed with the awi sacra favies, to attend to their religiotis duties, but this is not the case ; on the Sabbat...

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AUSTRALI SATURDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1853. THE LOGTC OF ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 December 1853

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1853. THE LOGTC OF ACCIDENT. In the Sydney Morning Herald ai Thursday, we find a report oi one of those fatal occurrences hy which we are now and ag/ain startled ; and which seem permitted, both to demonstrate that the effects of vice are not the less frightful because they may be un- foreseen and inadvertent, and also tc- show the frail tenure of the life of man, and its liability to utter destruction from a thousand circumstances which seem too trivial in themselves to exert over it the slightest influence. The report to which we allude is that of the trial at thc Brisbane assizes, Nov. 21, of one Kenneth McKenzie for the manslaughter of Francis Gerald Webber, at In derraway, on the 19th of October last. The main facts of the case, as given in evidence, are the following. The prisoner, who was Clerk of the Bench at Gayndah, had by his habits of intoxication induced an attack of delirium tremens ; and, in order to remove him from the immediate scene of tempta-...

SCIENTIFIC.

The authoress of vhe following story-extracted from the " Man- ; ners and Customs of Society in India "-assures us she has every ' reason to believe the circumstances perfectly true, as some of them ' came under her own observation. 1 . Henry Hurling was the younger branch of a noble family; his father died when he was about fourteen months old, and his mother, the Hon. Mrs. Harlinu, was a woman of haughty imperious disposition, who ha A but a small jointure lo support her hereditary pride, while her mind had dwelt long and ardently on obtaining a suitable match for her son, who had no fortune to step into when he came of age, nor were his expectations of future title and ' estates more cheering ; as there were four between him and the I possession of such distinctions, for his uncle, Lord Molestock, had j three sons, youths of nearly the same age as himself, all of good i constitutions, and likely to live and marry, thereby rendering the ; removes from the title still ...

SELFISHNESS AND INHUMANITY REBUKED. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 December 1853

SELFISHNESS AND INHUMANITY REBUKED. A correspondent of a Pennsylvanian journal furnishes the par- ticulars of an interesting incident, of which he was an eye-witness. It occurred a few years a^o, on the line of the great internal im- provements of that state. At the point ofthat side of the moun- tain, where occurred the transhipment of passengers from the west, was moored a canal boat, waiting the arrival of the train ere start- ing on its way through the east. The captain of the boat, a tall, rough; sea-embrowned man stood by his craft, superintending .the labours of his men, when the ears rolled up, and a few minutes after, a party of about half-a-dozen gentlemen came out, and, deliberately walking up to the captain, addressed him somewhat after this wise :-" Sir, we wish to go on to the east, but our fur- ther progress to-day depends on you. In the car we havè just left a sick man, whose presence is very disagreeable. We have been appointed a committee by the passengers to ask t...
