FACETIA [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 December 1853
FACE TIM. " Be ware,*' said the potter to the clay, and it became ware. Why are sheep like great gamesters ? Because the young ones are seen to gambol (gamble), and many of the old ones are black- legs. * QUERY FOR TABLE-TURNERS.-Have you ever turned a square table round 1 "John, has the doctor arrived?" "Yes, Sir." "Then go immediately for the undertaker, for coming events cast their shadows before them." PLEASANT TO THINK OF.-"What a dear good man that ! General Pierce must be," observed Mrs. Partington ; " the papers ! say his cabinet is to be confirmed on Monday. It's pleasant to I think that he will have Christian associates around him. Still I I don't know that it is best to have them all belong to one Church." I And the old lady went' to sleep while musing on so important a j topic. i A trout and an editor have many joints of resemblance.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 December 1853
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The Adelaide Times has changed hands. It has, we believe, &nbsp; &nbsp; been purchased by a company, who were to enter into possession on Wednesday, 16th ult. It was rumoured that Major O'Halloran was to be appointed Commissioner of Police, and that Mr. Tolmer was to be created Inspector-General. &nbsp; Mr. Poulden, barrister, expired at the Hospital, on Wednesday, 9th ultimo. A shocking case of suicide had taken place at Bowden. The victim was a Samuel Maclaine, who kept a cattle station, called &nbsp; Kampunga, on the River Murray, about five miles above Moo- &nbsp; rundee. The deceased had destroyed himself, according to the verdict of the jury, while labouring under insanity, brought on, and increased, by excessive drinking. &nbsp; Peter Fagan and his wife were committed for trial at Adelaide, for the wilful murder of the child of a Mrs. Taylor, who had en- trusted it to their care during her absence in Melbourne. ...
WHAT IS TO BE DONE WITH THE NEW CONSTITUTION BILL? [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 December 1853
WHAT IS TO BE DONE WITH THE NEW CONSTI- TUTION BILL? &nbsp; ON Tuesday next, the Legislative Council will reassemble for the despatch of business. The chief subject that will come before it for discussion is, of course, the New Con- stitution Bill; and when we consider the difference of opinion that exists in reference to that important matter, and also the state of the atmosphere, we may expect some warm work. Although we fear that all remonstrance will be unavail- ing, and that the fate of the Bill is already determined, still, for the satisfaction of our conscience, we must de- precate the passing of the present measure. When we say this, we do not mean to imply that the Bill itself is a bad one. We have no inclination to discuss its merits, and we are under no necessity to do so, the subject having been pretty well exhausted. But it is our most decided opinion that the very general dissatisfaction with which this Bill has been received, both as a whole and in various par...

¿NEWS OF THE WEEK. BURGLARY.-On Saturday night last, between the hours of 8 and ll o'clock, the residence of Mr. Cattlin Kent-street, was bur- glariously entered, while he and his wife were engaged in the George-street market, where Mr.. Catt is a stall-holder. A suit of black: clothes, two pieces of quartz containinr ti ol ci, and some articles of jewellery, to the value in all of £12 or £15, were taken away. The thieves have not yet been discovered. This is not the first time that this gentleman has been thus victimized. JUVENILE DELINQUENTS.-Hosanna Williams, Mary Ann Pearson, and Catherine Phillips-all of whom have been before the police authorities as juvenile vagrants-the oldest being under 15, and the youngest a little more than 13 years of age, were ap- prehended by Inspector Singleton, on Saturday afternoon last, for , having assaulted and robbed Mar j aret Wymes, a girl about 15 years of age, at their usual haunt-the old Burying Ground, in George-street, and were sentenced...

RAYMOND TERRACE, HUNTER'S RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 December 1853
RAYMOND TERRACE, HUNTER'S RIVER. Raymond Terrace is situated about 12 miles from Maitland. There is no doubt that it will ultimately become a very important and thriving part of the colony. It will be on the new road to . New England, by way of Port Stephens, which route will be a saving in distance of sixty miles. The value of land and houses in the neighbourhood has increased to a very great extent. The scenery on the banks of the Hunter is really beautiful, and is only marred by the large number of dead trees, which .have been killed for the convenience of clearing thc ground. We shall, from time, to time, give illustrations of views on this truly picturesque river. f RAYMOND TEÎ11\" ' HUNTER'S RIVER.
SELECT POETRY. LISTENING ANGELS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 December 1853
-'S>,n SELECT POETRY. LISTENING ANGELS. Blue, against the bluer heavens, Stood the mountain, calm and still ; Two white angels bending earthward, Leant upon the hill. Listening leant those silent angels. And I also longed to hear - . ? What sweet strain of earthly music Thus could diann their ear. ' I heard the sound of many trumpets, ' . And a warlike march draw nigh j Solemnly a mighty army Passed in order by. But the clang had ceased ; the echoes Soon had faded from the hill ; While the angels, calm and earnest, Leant and listened still. Then I '.oard a fainter clamour : ? ; Forge and wheel were clashing near, - And the reapers in the meadow Singinii loud and clear. When the sunset came in glory, ! And the toil of day was o'er, Still the angels leant in silence, ? ' Listening as before. ¡ Then, as daylight slowly vanished, And the evening mists grew dim, Solemnly from distant voices Rose a vesper hymn. . But the chant was done, and, lingering, Died upon the evening air; ' Yet ...
THE SOLDIER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 December 1853
THE SOLDIER. ( Continued.) The week expired. Henry Harling again tried to gain his mother's consent to Iiis wishes, or .even to give up her plans for his interest ; but all he could say was useless," and they parted with , high words on both sides. This conversation took place in the evening, when Laura Thompson had gone foran hour to the castle. On tlie following morning, when Mrs. Harling came down to breakfast, she found a note on the table from her son, saying that he had left for London, and it was quite uncertain when he should return. On the man-servant being questioned, he said that he had carried Mr. Harling's portmanteau to the town, through which the London coach passed, and had stayed till his master had taken his seat in it. , . . Nothing could have been so highly displeasing to a haughty'* mother as this firm opposition to all her anxious wishes and well laid plans. She thought it probable he would repent and return ; that he had only gone for a week, perhaps, to his u...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.—TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 December 1853
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.-TUESDAY. Only eight Members were absent. Mr. J. R. Holden was introduced by the Colonial Secretary and the Auditor General, and took the oaths and his seat. The Speaker then reported His Excellency's assent to several Bills, and various returns were laid upon the table by the Colonial Secretary. In reply to a question from Mr. Holroyd, the Colonial Secretary , stated that a communication had been recently received from M. Lentis, the French Consul, announcing that Rear-Admiral Des pointcs had taken possession of New Caledonia in the name of the French empire. A copy of the communication had been for- warded to lier Majesty's Government. In reply to a question from Mr. Campbell, the Colonial Secre- tary replied that Mr. Prout's conduct, relative to the bridge at Can- terbury, was not under the consideration of the Government. The subject of dispute, being purely a private or local one, could be settled by the ordinary tribunals of the country. Two petitions again...
BALMAIN REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 December 1853
BALMAIN REGATTA. This Regatta, of which we give an illustration, came off on the 30th ult. The sketch was taken from the flag-ship Hamlet, and represents the match with the Ivanhoe, Frolic, and Eclipse. These three yachts started at twelve minutes past one o'clock precisely, and returned in the following order :-The Eclipse at 23 minutes _ - _ . - t . rs . 1 il. _ Tl _1? _ " L IO to 6 ; Ivanhoe, 22 minutes 20 seconds to 6 ; and the Frolic at 18 minutes to ii. The tonnage of the Ivanhoe and Frolic was com- puted by the Committee, and the difference found to be five.eighths of a ton. The Ivanhoe thus heathy two minutes 55 seconds, car- rying oft'thc first prize of ,£50 ; and the Frolic the second bf £10. I The Frolic had her gunter-halyards carried away off Bradley's Head, by which she was detained five minutes. THE BALMAIN KEGATTA (SEE NEXT PAGE).

SATURDAY, DECEMBER"10, 1853/ LEADING-STRINGS FOR 'THE LEADING JOURNAL.» TIIK Empire, has, ' as everybody knows, announced its resolution to become the " leading journal of the southern hemisphere." : The ambition is an honourable one, and docs great credit to the Empire -especially when we consider the unfavorable circumstances under which it is cherished. If a great and good man bravely struggling with adversity was considered by the ancients a specta- cle for gods to look upon, we do not see why, in our own days, a. sturdy journalist contending hopefully with overwhelming diffi- culties may not afford a pleasing, even an elevating, subject for contemplation. For, not to mention our contemporary's general and consistent crassness-which is, of course, only a trifling ob- stacle in his way-he has certain peculiarities of style, diction, and expression, which may, if not corrected, seriously interfere with the realisation of his very laudable project. To that project, regarding it as ...
MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 December 1853
. MINING INTELLIGENCE. At Mount Alexander, Campbell's Flat, has been worked with very moderate success. One or two instances are recorded of heavy "finds," but the rushes in this locality are over. At Bar- ker's Creék some few are doing well. At Adelaide and Penny- weight Flats working is impeded by superabundance of water. Great numbers are sloping off for the Pyrenees. From Fryer's Creek there are no news of the diggings ; the public excitement respecting the leasing of certain portions to companies, is not al- layed, the same uncertainty prevailing as per last advices. The Avoca diggings are reported to be favourably progressing, and have drawn many from the Mount j no reliable accounts of yields have reached us from this quarter. Several handsome qualities of gold have been brought down to G.eelong thence, and other samples from the Wardy Yallock, which field is highly spoken of by the " ancient diggers." Ballarat is steadily improving and increasing in attraction, just as the y...
