MONUMENT TO THE LATE ALLAN CUNNINGHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 December 1853

MONUMENT TO THE'LATE ALLAN CUNNINGHAM. This public testimony of the estimate in which the character ot the late Allen Cunningham was held by the residents of this co- lony, as a private individual, and as assiduously devoted to the science of botany, stands in the Botanical Gardens, and was erected in 1844. It bears the following simple inscription : " Erected to ? the memory of Allan Cunningham, Botanist, 1844." We shall m all probability give a portrait of this deservedly esteemed indivi- dual in a future' number, when we shall accompany it with a short biography of his life. MONUMENT TO THE LATE ALLAN CUNNINGHAM (SEE PAGE 82).

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AUSTRALIA. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1853. MRS. NORTON'S CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 December 1853

: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1853. MRS. NORTON'S CASE..? WEALTH, beauty, genius, and rank, together wini an anecuoiuite heart and an amiable disposition-must not these necessarily se- cure happiness to a woman ? what reasonable woman could wish for more? And yet melancholy proof is not wanting that all these advantages may be utterly ineffectual, not only to render their possessor happy, but even to save her from wretchedness. There is still some vulnerable point, unprotected by this glittering armour ; and at that a keen and cruel destiny aiming may strike home, and the gorgeous panoply, instead of a defence, becomes to its wounded bearer an encumbrance. The wings of the press . have borne to us an instance of this from the other side of the globe ; and Mrs. Norton may now say-quce regio in terris nostri non plena laboris-" in what quarter of the world is the story of my ' wrongs unknown ?" As a general rule, no doubt, it is unallow- able to make a lady the subject of a newspaper artic...

THE SOLDIER. (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 December 1853

THE SOLDIER. ( Concluded.) The next day Field came again to the sergeant's house, and asked him if the ring was done, and if he would oblige him by allowing him to take it back to Mrs. Davenport-he would pledge himself, he said, for its safe delivery. The sergeant consented, and Field bent his steps to the collec- tor's residence. On his arrival there he begged one of the persons in waiting to tell Mrs. Davenport that he liad brought home the ring, which had been sent to be mended, and if she were not engaged, he would wish to see herself, and deliver it into her own hands. Field stood in the centre of the room, pale and motionless, with his eyes fixed on the opposite door, through which the peon had disappeared. At length the door opened, and Mrs. Daven- port eutered. The statue-like appearance of Field startled her for a moment. " Did you wish to see me ?" she gently said. " Are you Mrs. Davenport?" said he, almost breathless, without answering her question, and with his hands ext...

POETS' CORNER. THE LONELINESS OF THE DESERT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 December 1853

POE TS' CORNER. THE LONELINESS OF THE DESERT. Broad glared the sun upon Tehama's waste, When o'er its scorching sands, on foaming steed, À lonely Wanderer bounded, wild with haste, As though the hope of life were in its speed : . And yet-like that false phantom-lake, which gleams Beneath the Desert's unrelenting beams, Luring the Pilgrim, but to leave his tongue To curse the baffled hope to which he clung The far horison, as he onward sped, Enticed him still ;-still mocked his gaze, and fled. Awhile he paused, in wearinss, to view The changeless course which he must yet-pursue. Drear as the past appears the wild to come ; And still he seems, beneath the burning dome Of heaven, to stand the centre of that plain Where throneless Desolation holds his reign. Far as the eye can reach-and all around Is one vast, sandy, solitude profound : Wrapt in its deep and sultry stillness, sleeps The weary void j-no dewy vapour steeps The soil in freshness ; not an herb is there, Nor shadowing tree ;...

CENTRAL CRIMINAL COURT. FRIDAY. (Before his Honor the Chief Justice.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 December 1853

CENTRAL CRIMINAL COURT. (Before his Honor the Chief Justice.) VIOLENT ASSAULT.-Evan Evans was placed at the bar, charged with having committed a brutal assault upon his wife. The prisoner pleaded not guilty. The prosecutrix haying been called, did not appear.-The Chief Justice said that this was a case of such disgusting brutality, that he was determined not to allow the prisoner to escape. He had spoken with the medica] gentle- man who had attended the poor woman ; and from him he had learned that the prisoner had beaten his wife so brutally with a rope, that the whole of her body was covered with bleeding wounds, and immediately after this, the prisoner was seen, in a state of drunkenness, -with the rope, smeared with blood, twisted around his body ! If, therefore, this woman did not attend to prosecute, the proper course would be to issue a subpoena for her ; and if she still absented, he would compel her attendance by issuing an at- tachment.-The Attorney General concurred entir...

VICTORIA. VICTORIA PAPER COMPANY.-"We are very glad to hear fha , this company is progressing, and is likely to obtain public support . a demand for shares having already arisen. We cannot do better for the information of the public, than copy the prospectus, whicl has already been advertised:-" Victoria Paper Company.-It i: proposed to form a company, for the purpose of introducing inte the colony tlie manufacture of paper. From calculations whicl have been made by competent and intelligent persons (and whicl: are open for inspection at the office of the company), it is quite evident that it will prove a highly remunerative investment, and another step towards developing the resources, and increasing the progress and prosperity of the colony.

THE PEOPLE'S FINAL COURSE ON "THE BILL." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 December 1853

THE PEOPLE'S FINAL COURSE ON " THE BILL." THE Constitution Bill is, as we anticipated, passing, with- out much difficulty through the Council. It has received, indeed, certain modifications, and has suffered amputatior. of some of its most grotesque and palpable absurdities, bul the principle of the Bill remains intact. To that principle we still object ; and we still disbelieve in the permanence of the measure. If the new Legislature be suffered to exist for any-: length of time, which we much doubt, we venture to predict for it a fate closely resembling that of the Sydney Corporation : like that body, it will incur universal odium and contempt, and, , like it, will be at last "put down" as a public nuisance. While, however,, we thus strongly condemn the Bill itself, we are very far from joining in the noisy clamour of some of its most virulent antagonists, who seem to be utterly incapable of the slightest self-restraint or modera- tion, and to think that,'if a thing be bad, it is ...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.—TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 December 1853

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.-TUESDAY. Several petitions were presented against the Constitution and Marriage Bills. The Colonial Secretary laid upon the table a despatch from the Duke of Newcastle, in reference to the claim of Sir II. Murchison as having at an early period pointed out the indications of gold in Austvalia. The Colonial Secretary moved that an address be presented to ' his Excellëncy the Governor-General, relative to the Paris Exhi- bition in 1855, transmitting a copy of the report from the Select Committee, and requesting that his Excellency would be pleased tp adopt the proper measm'es for giving effect to the recom- mendation therein contained. Mr. Cowper, in moving the resumption of the adjourned debate on the Marriage Bill, appealed to the Attorney-General for a further postponement of the measure, in order to allow the House to devote itself exclusively to the consideration of the New Con- stitution Bill. . 1 Mr. Wentworth concurred in the views expressed by Mr. Cow- pe...
