TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 31 December 1853

TASMANIA. It is reported tliat gold has been found within two miles of Ho- , hart Town, and the reward of £1500 claimed. A request has been ? sent to Mr. Hargraves, the original discoverer of gold in Austra- I lia, by, we believe, the Committee of Gold Discovery Scheme, to j come over here and head an exploring party in search of gold, ! guaranteeing bini his expenses, and other advantages,'''independent j of the reward oilered.

FACETI[?]. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 31 December 1853

FACE TIM. DON'T BELIEVE IT.-That there is a man in Jersey so lazy that he has an artist hired hy the month, to draw his breath witli a lead pencil. Mr. Plunkett, pleading one day, observing the hour to be late, said it was his wish to proceed with the trial, if the jury would set.. '?Sit, Sir," said the judge, correcting him, "not set; hens sei." "I thank you, my lord," was the reply. Shortly after, the judge had occasion to observe,' that if such were the case, he feared the action would not lay." " Lie, my lord," said the barrister, " not lay ; hens lay." , Why is a hermit's residence like a betting office ? Because it's a cell (sell) ! What makes a lawyer's position so perilous ? Because he has other men's deeds to answer for as well as his own. " I'll pay your bill on sight," as the blind man said to a doctor who-had in vain attempted to cure him of his blindness. A bachelor has left a boarding-house, in which were a number of very plain-featured women, on account of the miserab...

LATE ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 31 December 1853

LATE ENGLISH. NEWS. THE Harbinger, steamer, arrived in Melbourne on the 23rd instant. She brings news to thc 6th of October ; we select the following as being the most important : War is reported to have been declared against Russia by Turkey ; hut the report was not considered sufficiently authenticated at the time of the Harbinger's sailing. Her Majesty was still in Scotland, in good health, en- joying the picturesque beauties of Balmoral. We are also informed of the death of Judge Anderson, the eminent Scottish judge. The funeral of M. Arago took place. on the 5th Oct., aud though it rained incessantly, at least 3,000 persons followed the funeral procession to the Cemetery of Pere la Chais.». , There had been very severe weather on the English coast, .causing loss of life, and much injury to the shipping. By intelligence from Athens, we learn that eleven per- sons had lost their lives by an earthquake, and that eighteen others were taken from the ruins of fallen houses, badly wou...

THE FLOWER SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 31 December 1853

THE FLOWER SHOW. The :Summer. Exhibition of the Australasian Botanical and Horticultural Society, took place in the Government Gardens last Tuesday. The day was exceedingly, favourable ; the clouds which, in the morning, .hid from our view the beautiful Australian sky, also delayed the sensible presence of Phoebus until the afternoon, when he put the clouds to .flight, and, as a mighty conqueror, shone forth in all his splendour, having lost a part of .his meridian warmth in the struggle with his cloudy adversaries. The gardens wore a pleasing aspect, the beautiful green grass-border contras; - ing charmingly with the party-coloured flowers of the beds which they surrounded. How sweet a, thing it is to wander musingly amongst sweet flowers ! In looking at them a child may learn a lesson, after having being scared from his less captivating books ! by the rough rebukes of a half-educated schoolmaster. In these little volumes Nature speaks A parent's language ; and, in tones as mild As...

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 31, 1853. GLAD RUMOURS OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 31 December 1853

'ON Ey' SATURDAY, DECEMBER 31, 18»3. GLAD RUMOURS OF WAR. FÜOM the récent English news we learn that the probability of war between Russia arid Turkey, before sufficiently great, has, on a sudden, been vastly increased, and that, while the hostile armies of those powers are marshalled in close opposition, and only sun- dered by the broad bosom of the Danube, which may, at this, moment, be red with their mingled blood, the Supreme Council of the Porte has recommended the Sultan at length to meet the Russian aggression as it ought at first to have been mdt,-by an open declaration of war. It was not positively known, when the Harbinger sailed, whether the Sultan had yet given effect to that advice; but that he'has done so before, this, we entertain no, doubt. The pressure, to which his. Council yielded, was too strong for him to resist ; and he could not in such a matter oppose, without danger to his throne, his own isolated will to : the united wishes and common impulse of his Turkish...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 31 December 1853

MINING INTELLIGENCE. THE OVENS.-The greatest excitement prevails among the diggers and storekeepers at the Nine Mile Creek.' Within a fort- night a regular digging township has been formed by the tents at this place, which commences near the Assistant Commissioner's Camp, aDd continues for the best part of a mile up the creek. The New Orleans Serenaders were erecting a building in which to hold their performances; besides which many other stores, re- freshment-tents, circulating libraries, booksellers, butchers, bakers, &c, are on the ground. THE HANGING ROCK.-One party here have taken out of their claim 16 ozs. of gold in one day. By the last Escort returns, more than double the usual amount of gold was brought down from the Rocky River. Tambaroora, Golden Gully, and the Ball Hill are favourable. A party of three, at the last named place, cleared upwards of £100 in a week. New Diggings have been opened at the head of the Golden Gully. The Coombring Mine is about to be opene...

FLORENCE DE ROHAN. A FRAGMENT FROM THE HISTORY OF NAPOLEON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 31 December 1853

FLORENCE DE ROHÄN. A FRAGMENT FROM THE HISTORY OF NAPOLEON. " (Continued.) As the last footstep of tlie officer became inaudible, the lady I threw aside her cloak and hood, which had effectually concealed , her features. Her companion started in amazement : he could scarcely credit the evidence of his senses, when he saw before him / the lady with whom'the Duke D'Enghien was known to have ex- changed vows of affection, the consummation of which had been suspeuded by. the Duke's untimely arrest. Napoleon's ultimate design had plainly ?been anticipated. To conceal a momentary surprise, the perturbed warrior crossed the room, and closed the door, which was still ajar. -Returning to his seat, he said coolly " I know not whether to censure or admire the energy that has led the daughter of a Bourbon to enter my camp at this unseason- able time, although not.unaware of the motives by which you mav seek to justify this act." The intruder instantly rose from her chair, dismayed at" these sar...

MY FIRST CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 31 December 1853

MY FIRST CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA. VBRY particular business required my presence at the inland town. ' pf 'Wellington, and J. was compelled to leave horne just as the Christmas festivities were about to commence. The case, how- ever, admitted of no delay. I therefore quitted Sydney in the mail,for Bathurst on the evening of December 22nd. 'After the usual quantum of jolts, and jars, and hair-breadth 'scapes, we reached Bathurst. I was only a new chum, and struggled hard to conceal my discomfort from my fellow-passen gèrs, lest I should meet'with ridicule, for they were evidently Well used to the shocks of the mountain roads. I had still a hundred nine's to travel over. On the morning of the 24th I took my, seat iii the Wellington mail, a solitary passenger, having the promise of a,good night's rest at a town called Molong. . Thc weather.was delightful, our horses rattled., along merrily, and at noon, though very hot, I was in excellent spirits, when we reached the pretty town of Orang...

WORK FOR THE NEW YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 31 December 1853

"We sincerely hope that our new civic functionaries will at once address themselves with vigour to the most important Avork set before them, and that they will measure their duties solely by the con- sideration of what is to be dpne : we hope that they'will not cast one backward glance at the defunct institution, but that they will discard its proceedings, ignore its pre- cedents, and erase even the memory of it from their minds.

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 31 December 1853

NEWS OF THE WEEK. BOXING DAY.-This day was a general holiday. Sydney, in fact, was completely out of town, and the city presented the ap- pearance of a deserted.village. Vast crowds might be seen elbow- ing each other onward to'amusements of some kind,-chacum fi- son goût. Thousands, at . an early hour, were on the road to Botany ; while the Sir John Harvey landed its living cargo where first the foot of Englishmen pressed the land of New South Wales. Those who did not like the water, for fear of being compelled to heave out signals of distress in sea-sickness, gave preference to the road-the appearance of which, for mixed life, gaiety, fun, and humour, reminded us of a return from Derby. Cabs were hirecl for as much as £7 for the day's sport, bu| there was a mixed dis ' play of every Jknown vehicle-at times " in" most admired disorder"' -all over-eager " to be the first in the throng." Our artist has happily caught the manners as they rose-" shot folly as it flew," and. pourtrayed,...

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 7 January 1854

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. M. STREBINGE ii's CONCERT.-On Thursday night, this gen- tleman gave a concert in the Saloon of the Royal Hotel, which was attended hy his Excellency the Governor-Genera), and a highly respectable audience. The great attraction ot the evening" was M. Strebinger's performance on the violin. He is, without except:o 1, in our opinion, the most finished violinist in this colony. We particularly admired his rendering of De Beriot's Rondeau. Rime, the spirited execution of which (mite electriiiei the audience. His variations of Le Canieval de Venise were brilliant and effective, and elicited a hearty encore. We were glad to give a smile of welcome to our old favourite, Frank Howson, who has just returned from a most successful tour in Victoria and Van Diemen's Land. He sang with his usual good taste, and maintained the character whicfu_ 1 he has long since acquired, of being an accomplished musician.

POE TS" CORNER. THE THREE COMFORTERS. It was the moony'midnight hour, The hour when the world is sleeping, And lonely, in her sleepless bower, A lady fair was weeping". Came one by with bags of gold, Many and heavy, laden : " Weep not !" he cried in accents bold ; "Take these and me,-we'll cheer thee, maiden.' " Away !. vain man," she said ; " from those, Or thee, no joy I'll borrow : Deeply the wo ful river flows Ye cannot cure my sorrow." Came one by with beardless chin ; Health on his face was flushing ; A woman's heart he well might win, And, as he knelt, his cheek was blushing. " Oh, weep not, lady dear !" he said; " The tears, that from thine eyelash part, Seem all to me pale blood-drops shed With anguish from my heart of heart. Tears will dim those starry eyes, Tears that lovely cheek will fade ; Oh, for his sake for thee who sighs, Lend him one bright smile, dear maid !" " Leave me, poor youth-nor sadly go ; Thou'lt find some mirthful maid to-morrow : Too deep the woeful str...

?MINING INTELLIGENCE. (From our own Correspondent.) Beechworth, 26th Dec, 1853. There is not much doing at Reid's Creek Diggings, or on Spring Creek. A ureat rush lias taken place to Buckland River, and parties, I believe, are doing exceedingly well. I know one party who realised on tire average G ozs. a day. Numbers are coming in from Bendigo, and already about 3000 diggers are scattered along the Ovens River to the Buffalo. Storekeepers and others are opening places of public resort. The Serenaders have even been amongst us. I am certain there will be a good harvest for the diggers during the summer, having found during my late visit, that operations are progressing very favourably. The In- spector of Police is to start to-morrow to inspect the Police stationed there.

CHRISTMAS PARTY IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 7 January 1854

CHRISTMAS PARTY IN AUSTRALIA. TYE have given our readers a representation or one ot those picnic parties which, in our genial climate, may take place almost at any- time, and which are so frequent durinjf the present festive season. The company consists chiefly of successful diggers, with their sweethearts and Avives. Those baskets may be considered as " pockets" filled with eatable nuggets of the most delicious kind ; . and those bottles contain no vulgar Bass' Ale or Guiness' Stout, but explode in a sparkling liquor which we know not how to de- scribe, but which the party are under the happy delusion is champagne. Whatever it may be, they will presently get very merry upon it-and they will be right ; for if we always insist in life upon getting "real champagne," we shall lose many an oppor- tunity of enjoyment. If we are wise, we will cherish the illusion, aud " eat trifle." CH ii IS i MAS PAKT V IN AUSTRALIA (SK Ii NliXT PAOli).
