PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 December 1853

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. AMPHITHÉÂTRE.-This little theatre continues attractive. On Monday, the manager, Mr. Buyers, put forth a first-rate bill-of fare,-Douglas Jerrold's Rent-Day possessing well-known metal, having been tried in the crucible of public opinion, as, indeed, all his Dramas have long since been, in almost every theatre at home and abroad. We would, however, suggest to Mr. B. a Second Night, when the weather has settled fine, and when a ship-full of '. new chums" may assist in making him up a bumper. THE SERENADERS' Concerts have been much better attended since the benefits commenced. The last Concert for the season is announced for Monday evening next, under the patronage of His Excellency the Governor-General. When it is generally known that, " though last not least" among our colored favorites, Nash takes his farewell benefit on this occasion, the public will doubtless \ readily accept the musical invitation.

TESTIMONIAL TO THE COLONIAL SECRETARY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 December 1853

TESTIMONIAL TO THE COLONIAL SECRETARY. "WE observe no-moderation here in our estimate of men o: note : modest worth and venial delinquency seem alike unknown amongst us. All our opinions are extreme. A public man of any standing, according to the parties thal describe him, has two distinct characters, opposed wholly each to the other, and both of them to the truth. The .one party overwhelms him with panegyric : the other pelts him with abuse-and it is hard to say which, in the eye of sense, is the more grievous infliction. If we believe one side, this man is a spotless angel, with a gigantic genius stretching fat away into the heavens : while, if we take the other's word, he is ari incarnate fiend in his mo- rality, and in regard to his intellect there is little hesita- tion in stigmatising him as an imbecile, an idiot. This practice of antagonist exaggeration is hoth mischievous and absurd. It is absurd to make a pother at all without an adequate cause. Very few men in this world m...

VICTORIA.   > The Geelong'Auxiliary of the British and Foreign Bible Societj held a meeting, on Monday, 21st. ultimo, in the spacious buildinj» belonging to the Railway Company, to celebrate the 50th anni- versary or jubilee of the Institution.

OUR PORTRAIT GALLERY. THE LATE COLONEL KENNETH SNODGRASS, C.B. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 December 1853

i OUR PORTRAIT GALLERY. TILE LATE COLONEL KENNETH SNODGRASS, C.B. The late Colonel Snodgrass was born in the west of Scotland about the year 1784. The Colonel was the eldest son of a Doctor of Divinity of the Church of Scotland, and his mother was the sister of Sir K. Douglass, Baronet. At an early age he entered the army, and distinguished himself as an officer of the 52nd Regiment. His excellent military qualities soon attracted the General in command, and he was on various occasions selected as leader of extraordinary attacks on the French during the war in Spain, and for many years was entrusted with the sole command of Portuguese battalions. In the " Exploits of Wellington," " Maxwell's Life of Wellington," and the " Subaltern," this distinguished officer's courage as victoriously leading the " forlorn hope" at St. Sebastian, is particularly narrated. On that occasion the Colonel, then only a Major, lost 200 men, before he reached the bastions of the fortress. The citadel was t...

Adelaide Times remarked : "Why should hot the Council either increase the proposed vote, pr move the Governor to request, if he cannot order, as he ought to have the power to order, the Emigra- tion Commissioners to devote £20,000 or more of the £95,000 they have in hand of South Austral...

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 December 1853

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. MALCOMAS AMPHITHEATRE.-The dramatic part of the per- formances in this place of amusement has, we believe, for the present, terminated. We are informed that it is the intention of the proprietor to engage an efficient company as soon as practica- ble. This is the only thing that is really wanting to make the Circus a highly attractive and popular place of public resort ; and we trust the proprietor will be able to secure talent really worthy of the public patronage. The scenes in the arena still maintain j their usual interest. The extravaganza of Bombastes Furioso was performed on Thursday evening, and elicited, of course, many a hearty laugh. PUBLIC CONCERTS.-We had the pleasure of attending the concert given by Madame Gautrot on Wednesday evening. The attendance, we regret to say, was not very large. It is evident that this lady understands music thoroughly, and has the remains of a g^ood voice. Miss Piora Harris sung very tastefully, and Monsieur Strebinger ex...

This valley, which is one of the most picturesque and fertile spots in the Co- lony, stretches inland along the base of precipitous mountains which ave clothed with forest, and form a barrier against tne dry and withering north and westerly winds during the summer. The vegetation of this district is quite tropical in its aspect, and the abundance of water causes everything to appear beautifully green ; the lofty cabbage-palm and the graceful Seaforthia are amongst the most striking trees in the landscape, and the tree fern is abun- dant in the forest ravines. The whole district is studded with dairy-farms, and the progress of cultivation is really astonishing, o wini/ not only to the richness of the soil, but also to the unrelent- ing industry and diligence of its inhabitants.
