GEORGE-STREET MARKET, SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 December 1853

GEORGE-STREET MARKET, SYDNEY. "We think one of the most appropriate illustrations which we can this week present to our readers, is a view of the city market, George-street, which we have accompanied with a scene in the interior. The buildings composing it were erected in 1831-2, under the superintendence of Captain.Wilson, of the Public Works department of the Government, from drawings by the late Mr. Ambrose Allen, then architect for the city. In point of situation, and in other respects, the buildings (of which there are four) are well adapted for a public market. ^ Each of these buildings measures two hundred feet in length, and thirty, in width, and is divided into stalls for the sale of all kinds of colonial produce. The .buildiugs, which form part of George-street, are exclusively appropriated to wholesale dealers. The markets are the great resort, not only of strangers but of the townspeople, especially on a Saturday evening. Indeed few, if any, who visit Sydney, think of le...

KING GEORGE TUBOU, OF THE FRIENDLY ISLANDS. From a Daguerrotype by Gow and Acley. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 December 1853

KING GEORGE TUBOU, OF THE FRIENDLY ISLANDS. From a Daguerreotype by Gow and Acley.       The subject of this memoir was born early in the present cen- tury. The exact date is unknown, for his heathen parents kept but very imperfect accounts of dates. The name by which he was formerly known was Taufaahau. When quite a lad, he gave promise of future greatness by his brave disposition. As he grew to man's estate, he appeared as a Chief among a fine and noble race ; the size and dignity of his person exceeding that of many of the Chiefs by whom he was surrounded. He is now a tall, fine looking, well-made man, six feet four inches in height, with a re- markably penetrating eye, dignified carriage, and his countenance sweetly tempered with Christian benignity. The name of his grandfather was Tuku-aho, one of the former Kings of Tonga. He was a brave, but cruel man ; and the matua, or " old men," of Tonga, predicted that King George would be like him,...

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AUSTRALIA. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1853. MR. WENTWORTH'S LAST APPEARANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 December 1853

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1853. ? MR. WENTWORTH'S LAST APPEARANCE. ON Wednesday Mr. Wentworth spoke for the last time in tile pri sent Legislative Council. The scene was solemn and affecting but there is no reason wh}' even those who were most moved by i and by the contemplation of the. honourable gentleman's approach ing departure, should spurn every attempt at consolation,- kn abandon themselves to the'luxury of unrestrained aud uuqualifie emotion. There is..at least one point in this dreary prospect o which, the eye can rest*with unall:>yed satisfaction ; there, is on great compensation for this loss ; one weighty counterpoise to th burden of this calamity. Mi*. Wentworth leaves our shores, bi he leaves them for a glorious purpose; he is about to sail fror Australia, in fact, oh a most high and important mission. Th English Government and the English people are in a state of th thickest darkness with regard to the principles of legislation in ge neral and of their own Constitutio...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 December 1853

MINING INTELLIGENCE. THE HANGING ROCK.-Hanging Rock, Saturday, December 10, 1853. The weather has been exceedingly fine during the week, and parties are busily at work at their various avocations. Al- though the weather is so propitious, several persons at the lower and of Oakenville Creek are unable to work their claims on ac- count of the great soakage of water from the hills. There are springs on several of the principal ranges, consequently there is an under current of water continually flowing on the bed rock ; this renders claims incapable of being worked, which are situated on flats, or on a level of any kind, whether at the bottom or top of the main creek. A strong party of men, possessing all the qualifica- tions necessary to successful mining, have been working labori- ously for four months in a claim nearly at the head of the main creek, without meeting with ordinary good fortuné. They were again and again beat out with water, and they as often returned to their work, but...

FLORENCE DE ROHAN. A FRAGMENT FROM THE HISTORY OF NAPOLEON. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 December 1853

FLORENCE DE ROHAN. A FRAGMENT FROM THE.HISTORY OF NAPOLEON. CHAPTER I. Of the many dark events in connexion with ^Napoleon's wondei ful career, there is hone on which the historian has so often bee called to ponder, as that of the death of the Duke D'Enghien.. . The death of the Duke D'Enghien was as undeserved as it wa sudden and violent; the most subtle ingenuity has been continual! baffled in the endeavour to'provide for this act a solution that ma; not conflict with' the most boundless admiration for the hero. Tin common judgment of mankind, which seldom for any length o time can err, has finally referred the most efficient cause of this deed to Napoleon's fear that the Duke might ultimately thwar his imperial projects. The connexion that the life of the Dulci had with Napoleon's fortunes, Napoleon himself best could tell. . We will trace in outline the historical position of the event before bringing into view, and into as orderly arrangement as possible, its concurrent inciden...

A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU! [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 December 1853

A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ! IT must be difficult for recent arrivals from the motlier country to recognise Christmas as he appears at the anti- podes. He is an old friend indeed, but certainly with a very new face. At home, that Christmas may come in his best and happiest style, the air should be clear and frosty ; and the colder it is, the less grumbling will there be, and the more attractive will be the fireside, and the yule-log will be burned with the greater veneration. If the snow weigh down the leafless branches of the old trees and lie a foot deep on the ground, the jovial face of Christmas" looks all the merrier ; and if the poffds be frozen over, then, after returning from church, one may acquire an appetite for one's plumpudding by an hour of the most exhilarating exercise, and the youngsters, who are at homeWor the vacation, may exhibit at once their skill with the^skates and their practical geometry by in- scribing a circleVin a triangle on the ice. Then, when the night ...

Mr. Wentworth presented two petitions in favour of the New Constitution Bill-one from Parramatta, the other from the Upper Hunter. The signatures in both were very meagre, the former numbering thirty-one, and the latter only numbering thirty-seven names. Mr. Wentworth said, that each petition con- tained the names of all the magistrates and respectable people residing-in the districts from which the petitions had been sent. Mr. Murray put a qu...
