THE CLIPPER SHIP "WALTER HOOD." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 October 1853

THE CLIPPER SHIP "WALTER HOOD, ENTERING THE HEADS OF PORT JACKSON, THE CLIPPER SHIP "WALTER HOOD." ONE of the most important features connected with this colony and its interests, is its mercantile marine. The waters of Port Jackson   have carried from all countries some of the finest specimens of   naval architecture, bringing with them every article of trade and   luxury that can be, found in any portion of the globe. Among the   vessels which have visited our shores, none perhaps deserve a higher enconium than the subject of the present illustration. The Walter Hood well merits the high opinion expressed of her. She possesses   those remarkable qualifications so essential to ships of her class, viz., speed, carriage of large freight and passenger accommodation. The Phonecian was held in high estimation for these several qualities; but her "sister ship," the Walter Hood, we think, eclipses her, and Captain Sproat, fo...

NEW SOUTH WALES HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY.— SPRING EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 October 1853

NEW SOUTH WALES HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY.― SPRING EXHIBITION.   WE beg to present our readers with an illustration of the Sydney Botanic Gardens, taken during the Spring Exhibition of Fruits and Flowers, held on Tuesday, the 28th ultimo. We shall by some perhaps be thought extravagant in opening so early   such a mine of wealth to the artist as the Botanic Gardens are sure to be. As seen on the periodical occasion of the flower shows, they certainly present an almost matchless scene of loveliness. And here we anxious that those of our readers who reside at a dis- tance should not imagine that we use the language of hyperbole. Could our English readers (if we are destined to have any), be suddenly conveyed from the trim precision of Kew or Hampton Court, with their long straight alleys and magnificent gravel walks, or from the smoky verdure of St. James's Park or Kensington Gardens, to the grassy slopes of ours; could they view the wide   expanse o...

MR. DARVALL, M. C. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 October 1853

MR. DARVALL, M. C. THE recent agitation consequent on Mr. "Wentworth's scheme of a Constitution for the colony, has brought out several gentlemen, both in and out of the Legislative Council, in more defined political prominence., and more distinctive personal character, than ."any- thing hy which their public career was previously marked. Among these, the most remarkable person, having regard especially to the late movement, is. the subject of the portrait at the head of this article, Mr. John Bayley Darvall, barrister-at-law, and M.C., for the County of Cumberland. Though Mr. Darvall had been a member of the Legislative Council for the long period of nine years, he was never distinguished for sympathy witli the public during that time, on any occasion that gave rise to a general ex- pression of popular sentiment. On the contrary, in the greatest popular movement of the colonists previous to the Constitution question, and which resulted in the final extinction of convictism, Mr. Dar...

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15TH, 1853. TO OUR CRITICAL FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1853

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15TH, 1853. TO OUR CRITICAL FRIENDS. THOSE who make a bold attempt to introduce a novelty to the public, must expect to excite criticism ; and the severity of the cri- ticism will gensrally be proportioned to the novelty, or what will be termed the audacity, of the undertaking. But when an enter- prise is deliberately considered, when its promoters feel conscious that the work in which they are engaged, is calculated to promote 0 public interests, that it is called for by the public taste, and that its success has been tested by long experience in other communi- ties, they would be craven-hearted indeed, did they allow a few ex ' pressions of disappointment to damp their expectations, or relax their energies. Far from it; they should derive a stimulus from these too highly raised expectations, and feel assured that the generosity of imagination that had given them credit for greater powers than they may possess, will be succeeded by a candid ap- preciation of whate...

THE UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1853

THE UNIVERSITY OE SYDNEY. ON ¡Monday last, at 12 o'clock, the Senate met for the purpose oJ presenting the prizes to the students of 'the first and past year ol this Institution, and also to admit those who had passed their ex- aminations. Not being in the colony when the University was opened last year, we are unable to make any comparison between the present meeting and that of the preceding year, as to the number's present, nor the amount of beauty and fashion with which it was graced on the present occasion, compared with the past. The business was commenced by the Vice-Provost stating the objects for which they were convened, which were three : to hear the Report (we would have rather supposed reports) from the Pro- fessors, relative to what had been done during the past academical year-to present prizes awarded to the most distinguished of .the students who have been engaged in study during that period ; and to hear those students, who had successfully passed their matricu- la...

FACETIM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1853

FACETIM. I MEDICAL PROFUNDITY.-An Exeter paper, under the head of " Bideford" has the following:-A self-sufficient dignitary, who took up the business of a physician, and pretended to a deep know- ledge of the healing art, was called to visit a young man afflicted with apoplexy. Bolus gazed long and hard, felt his pulse and pocket, looked at his tongue and his wife, and finally gave vent to j the following sublime opinion :-" I think he's a gone feller." "No, no!" exclaimed the sorrowing wife, "do not say that." " Yes," returned Bolus, " I do say so ; there ain't no hope, not the least mite; he's got an attack of nihil fit in his lost frontis.', "Where?" cried the startled wife. "In his lost frontis, and he can't be cured without some trouble and a great deal of pains. You see his whole planetary system is deranged ; fustly, his vox populi is pressing on his advalorem ; secondly, his cutacorpial cutaneous has swelled considerable, if not more ; thirdly, and lastly, his solar ribs ar...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1853

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7.~ Mr. HOLROYD moved that an address be presented to the Governor General, praying that a copy of a Report of a Board recently appointed to investigate the accounts of the Clerk of Petty Ses- sions at Bathurst, together with the evidence thereon taken, includ- ing all the co-relative documents be laid before the Council. On this subject he had applied to the Auditor-General for the docu- mentary evidence, but lind been refused, although he (Mr Holroyd) was the alone party, who set the enquiry in motion. Mr. COWPER seconded the motion. The COLONIAL SECRETARY, after admitting that a Board of Investigation had been appointed and had reported on the subject, objected to the production of any papers relating to the subject until the matter was referred to the Governor-General for his decision. Mr. HOLROYD would not press the motion, although the Board sat in April and had reported in July, but would take an opportu- nity of moving that the return be ...

NEW GOLD FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1853

NEW GOLD FIELD. Our readers will be gratified on perusing the following intelligence, which unfolds the precise kind of information a large number of our subscribers and readers are anxious to possess. The informa tiou may be relied on. It has not, as yet, been before the public mind; and is taken from the last Geological Report drawn up for   t'ne information of the Government by the Rev. W. B. Clarke, and addressed to the Colonial Secretary:- " The Rocky River,' on being prospected produced fine gun-   powder gold, precisely like that of the western Rocky or uralla, from every pan that was washed along several miles of its course ; and in a flat or swamp, called locally Butt irlip, between Bergouilla and Dunbar ra, there is also a deposit of gold, as well as in other places in the neighbourhood. The only fear is, that the abundance of water may render whatever deposits there may be difficult of access, in the Cataract Uiver there is also a little gold. Ma...

MEETING AT CIRCULAR QUAY IN REFERENCE TO THE NEW CONSTITUTION BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1853

MEETING AT CIRCULAR QUAY IN REFERENCE TO THE NEW CONSTITUTION BILL. IT is not to be wondered at that the people should have felt so deeply interested in a measure so intimately connected with their rights as the New Constitution Bill. On the motion having been brought before the House, a number of gentlemen formed them- selves into a Committee, and called a Public Meeting, to be held in the Victoria Theatre, for the purpose of agreeing to petition the Legislative Council to withold their assent to the Bill. This peti- tion was numerously signed by the householders of Sydney; but   as it did not have the desired effect, a meeting was called to take place at the Circular Quay on Monday, 29th August last. The weather, however, proved unfavourable, and the meeting was postponed until the following Monday. On that day hustings were erected, on the open space in front of the Circular Qay, and at the appointed hour of one o'clock, a crowd of people came pouring in from all qua...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE MALLET USED IN LAYING THE FIRST STONE OF THE NEW EXCHANGE. To the Editor of the Illustrated Sydney News. SIR,-Will you allow mc to correct a statement which appeared in your coluuis of last week relative to' the design, and workman- ship of the mallet used in laying the first stone of the New Sydney Exchan. e; the para raph reads as follows :-" Taking it as a work of art, it reflects much credit on Messrs. P. and W. Dean of Mar- ket-street, from whose 'Atelier' it emanated, and to whose kindness and the kindness of Mr. Dawes of the Exchange Rooms we are in- debted for the above particulars.' The desi n instead of emanating from Messrs. P. and W. Dean, of Market-street, emanated from the Architect Mr. Hilly, and by that . entleman's instructions was handed by me to Mr. Moreland to execute. Messrs. P. and W. Dean had nothing whatever to do witii the mallet, neither were they in any way concerned in the pro ceôumgs oí tue day. 1 am, oír, your o béaient servant, F.W....

CHEAP DIET. PART II. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1853

CHEAP DIET.   PART II. BY my father Geoffrey was congratulated on his improved prospects. "I am very glad,   my dear sir," said he, "to hear, what you   tell me. From my knowledge of Mr. Wynn I feel assured that your position in his fa- mily cannot fail of being in every way agree- able." "In that confidence I fully par- ticipate," said Geof- frey. Poor short- sighted mortal! So   feels the fish, when it jumps at the bait ― the bird, when it is entering the trap. Poor Geof- frey Fennel! Great misery was in store for you from     this change that seemed so advan- tageous―misery with your life only to he ended. But the life of man lies before him like an avenue lined with trees bearing sweet and bitter fruit: which is the sweet, and which     the bitter―which the poisonous, and which the wholesome―he can seldom know until he has plucked and eaten it―until the knowledge is useless. *...

OUR PORTRAIT GALLERY. JOHN M'LERIE, ESQ., J.P. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1853

OUR PORTRAIT GALLERY.   JOHN MᶜLERIE, ESQ., J.P. THE subject of our present illustration, John MᶜLerie, Esq., J.P., one of the Police Magistrates of the City of Sydney, and Metropo-   litan Superintendent of Police for the Colony of New South Wales, is a native of the West of Scotland. In 1826, at the age of sixteen,   he commenced his military career in the Scots Fusileer Guards, in which distinguished corps he rose to the highest rank attaina-   ble; the Foot Guards being the only regiment in which officers   are not promoted from the ranks. In 1838, Mr. MᶜLerie was appointed Adjutant of the 58th Regiment, then returning from Ceylon, and arrived in this colony with that corps in the latter end of 1844. In March, 1845, after the destruction of Kororarika, at the Bay of Islands, by the native rebels, he embarked with his regiment for New Zealand, and served there during all the operations against the enemy till the cap...

REVIEW. THE ALCESTIS OF EURIPIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1853

REVIEW. THE ALCESTIS OF EURIPIDES.* THERE are two considerations which, before we opened Mr. Milner's book, predisposed us in its favour : first, the originality of the editor's experiment; secondly, the corresponding originality of our own. " A fellow feeling makes us wondrous kind." Even if, then, on looking over this edition of the Alcestis, Ave had found it much inferior to what it is, we could hardly have found it in our hearts to censure ; as the case stands, we have no alternative but to praise. Mechanically regarded, this play is well brought out ; the misprints, under the circumstances, are wonderfully few. With .respect to the Editor's part, the notes are generally judicious, and show a refreshing absence of pedantry; but we must object to the frequent and verbose quotations from the grammar which is not Dr. Jelf s. If we notice a few errors into which we think Mr. Milner has fallen, it is not from a love of fault-finding, but in order that he may have an opportunity of co...

THE DRAPER'S HOMEBUSH MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1853

THE DRAPER'S HOMEBUSH MEETING.   THESE Races came off on Thursday, the 6th instant, and attracted a larger number of spectators than we ever remember to have seen at Homebush on a similar occasion. From an early hour, the streets of Sydney gave manifest signs that something had fright- ened our business-like city from its wonted propriety, Vehicles of all kinds might be seen rushing, frantically about to take up their living freights, whilst in those which had "cleared outwards," might be descried the corner of a mysterious hamper, peeping from under the driving seat, and causing somewhat envious visions of champagne luncheons to float across the brains of those who had been less regardful of the necessities of the "inward man." "The   million" crowded eagerly in, and upon, the various "well-appointed   four-horse drags." as their proprietors love to term them, but which are best described in the vernacular saxon as busses and four. To judge fr...
