POLITICAL QUAKERISM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 7 January 1854

POLITICAL QÜAKERiSMi ..>;' ; -, A TRULY, we are a patient an^;fprljeafing pfeoplèf "\ye colo-,: nists of New South Wales. Our. conduct, when contrasted ' with that of our brethren at home, shows in a . very favorable light ; and the hot and hasty temper and petu- lant pride which characterise, and haye so long charac- terised, them, are nobly rebuked by our uncomplaining meekness and imperturbable long-suffering. ^ s a proof of what we say, we need only adduce, and place side by side, the present state of England and the present state of this colony. Russia, it seems, has perpetrated a very unprincipled aggression upon Turkey. Violating the law of nations, and setting at nought all right - and' justice, she h as'flung down those sacred principles under the feet of her bar- barous legions, who trample upon themas they march into the territories of a peaceful and unoffending kingdom. Well, no Sooner are these things known in England than the whole country is in a ferment. The meddl...

THE NEW FANCY BAZAAR, ROYAL HOTEL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 7 January 1854

THE NEW FANCY BAZAAR, ROYAL HOTEL. THIS bazaar, which was recently opened under the superintend- ence of Mr. Arthur Morlan, was visited by His Excellency the Governoi-General on Monday last, who expressed himself highly pleased with the spirited manner in which the undertaking had been carried out, and the good taste exhibited in the arrangements generally. General Sir G. Nickle, and several other public officers also patronised the bazaar, and intimated their intention to become frequent visitors. The attendance during the day was numerous, there being a sprinkling of all classes, and lar;>e pur- chases were made of ' jewellery, stationery, &c, which were no doubt intended as New Year's presents. The Band of the 11th Regiment was in attendance, and contributed greatly to the grati- fication of visitors. There is no doubt, too, that their enjoyment was considerably enhanced by the performances of several amateur pianists. We think a great acquisition might be added to tli...

TO THE RIVER MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 7 January 1854

! TO THE RIVER MURRAY, Awake ! thou mighty river, Australia's noblest stream ! The voices of the Saxon race arouse thee from thy dream. In silence, since creation, through wild, lone deserts ever, Thy snow-fed waters have roll'd on, an unsung, nameless river! But a change is o'er thee now, their rushing feet we hear, The restless footsteps of a host to thy green banks draw near. They come from England's homesteads, from Erin's isle they come, And Scotland's heath-clad hills they leave to seek a southern home. Brave Sturt, in his lone boat, first broke the silent dream ; Cadell awoke thee to the world by earth;s proud conqueror, steam ! And soon a mighty nation shall look on thee with pride ; Triumphant o'er thy glossy waves shall many a steamboat glide, Where but the wild dog's howling by desolate lagoon, And the plover's voice was heard greeting the mournful moon ! Shall other sounds and voices startle thy deep green woods ; The clanging axe, the merry laugh ring through thy solitu...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 7 January 1854

! ' SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The Weekly Dispatch of 17th ultimo has the following :-" Pre- vious to the business at the Local Court on Wednesday, the clerk on the civil side read over the new act which has been passed, en- abling the judges of the Supreme Court, or either pf them, to hold a court for the recovery of small debts and minor offences, in every part of tile colony." We experienced some difficulty, at first, in comprehending this very peculiar prhaseology of our contempo- rary. Three natives have been sentenced to three years' imprisonment with hard labour, for manslaughter, at Mosquito Plains, in July last. The late Criminal Sittings of the Supreme Court were the longest, it is believed, but one, since the foundation of the colony, having lasted seventeen days. , The Auburn races are advertised to,take place on the 18th inst., and the Salisbury, on 1st and 2nd February next. Orders, says the Weekly Dispatch, have been issued for the dis- continuance of the South Australian Gold ...

BRITISH GLEANINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 7 January 1854

. BRITISH GLEANINGS. THE DONCASTER ST. LEGER.-In 1853, a triple feat has been accomplished by a race horse in England, which is quite un- paralleled in the history of the turf. West Australian has won the 2000 guinea stakes, the Derby, and the Doncaster St. Leger. This has never been accomplished before. An association of merchant adventurers is forming in Denmark, with the view of shipping largely to Australia. At Hamburg, also, peonle are goin^ extensively into the trade. Some more of the younger scions of the nobility are preparing ' - to visit Australia, and as steam gives increased facilities you will doubtless have the colonies in- cluded in the " grand tour." The .manifest advantage of personal intercourse it is needless to point . out, hut it is to be ¡hoped that something more than a flying visit will be paid, otherwise crude opinions and hasty prejudices may be formed. What we see by the letters sent home by parties who have been a year or so in Austra- lia, will illustrat...

NOTES OF THE MONTHS. JANUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 7 January 1854

TUR OPOSSUM. NOTES OF THE MONTHS. JANUARY. Tin; frolicksome little subjects of the accompanying illustration, ara the liveliest, and perhaps the loveliest of the animals with which our forests in time past abounded. Of the most playful ' disposition, and capable of much animal education, they essentially belong to the spring and summer times. In the warm nights in these seasons, they skip from branch to branch with a truly tropi- cal celerity, now whisking their long and busily tails, fan like, through the air, and now depending' from an o'erhanging bough, musically swinging themselves in the atmosphere, and bathing in the falling dew-drops from the leaves. The opossum feeds princi- pally upon herbage and foliage, and soon attains a most unfashion- able obesity. The flesh forms a favourite article of food to the aborigines, and the invaluable qualities af the cloak made from the rich grey and buff fur of the animal, and, which is vulgarly called a " possum skin," has been attested b...

TASMANIA. J The Gardeners' and Amateurs' Horticultural Society's Exhibi- tion was to take place in the Í£,ew Market Place on Wednesday, 28th ultimo. The Public Banquet in honour of the opening of the New Market is fixed for the 12fh inst. ; the Right ' Worshipful the Mayor of Hobart Town is to be requested to preside on the occa- sion. Mr. Yíeend, of sporting celebrity, has had damages awarded to him to the extent of £500 in an action before the Supreme Court, Hobart Town, at his instance against Mr. De la Hunt, Druggist, for the loss of a racing horse of the value of £600 whose death was caused by a deleterious compound in the shape of a horse-ball, which had been purchased of the defendant and administered to the animal. The plaintiff also alleged that he had lost £200 by a race for which the horse was entered. The damages were laid at £1000. A great amount of sickness has lately existed in Launceston, and mortality has been general. Adults have chiefly suffered from dysentery, an...

OUR PORTRAIT GALLERY. WILLIAM CHARLES WENTWORTH, ESQ. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 7 January 1854

OUR PORTRAIT GALLERY. WILLIAM CHARLES WENTWORTH, ESQ.   This gentleman was born at Norfolk Island, in the latter end of the year 1790, and is consequently now in his 64th year. His father, the late Darcy Wentworth, Esq., was principal surgeon of the medical staff, treasurer of the Sydney Police Es- tablishment, and a magistrate of the territory. Mr. Wentworth acquired the first rudiments of his education in this city, and afterwards went to England, where he prosecuted his studies under Dr. Crombie, of Greenwich. He subsequently studied at Trinity College, Cambridge, where we believe he in some manner distinguished himself. . Mr. Wentworth returned to Sydney in 1824, having been called to the bar some years previously. While in England he had be- come personally known to the late Dr. Wardell, who was then the editor and proprietor of a London evening paper, called the Statesman. This gentleman accompanied Mr. Wentworth to Sydney. After their arrival, they originated a p...

A HAPPY NEW YEAR. A PRIZE POEM WRITTEN IN DEAN'S FURNITURE WAREHOUSE, City Theatre, Market-street. BOOK I. The Argument-The Poet apostrophizes Australia Australia, hail 1 thou spotless, pure, and free Who would not speak in warmest strains of thee Í Who would not praise thy broad savannahs green ¡ Thy glorious climate and thy skies serene. If such there be, some serpent creeping slow, Avoid his slime, and hold him deadliest foe ; He only waits to make thee venom feel, Then crush the reptile with an iron heel. Nor he nor any of such worthless band Is flt to live within thy noble land. " The good who want relief can here find means,', Thus Wentworth spoke, audecho him the DEANS. When first the pilgrim fathers here did roam, (Those pioneers of progress, leaving home And all held dear, another world to found,) The black barbarian's footsteps pressed the ground, In boundless wastes leapt high the kangaroo, And through the deserts stalked the tall emu, The parrots screaming harshly throug...

FLORENCE DE ROHAN. A FRAGMENT FROM THE HISTORY OF NAPOLEON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 7 January 1854

FLORENCE DE ROHAN. A FRAGMENT FROM THE HISTORY OF NAPOLEON. . ( Concluded.) In bitterness of heart he started up, and paced the room with hurried steps. As he did this, the very atmosphere seemed to teem with unnatural life. A mist came gradually up, and a thou- sand living shapes were in it. He saw forms and faces that he knew were amidst the dead, and heard the moans of the dying", and the supplications of the lost. His eyes wandered round with a vague gaze, as if following some imaginary form. Amidst those dreadful gazers was the noble Victim to his late revenge, the Duke D'Enghien, in the pangs of dissolution. In vain he willed the apparition to be gone ; there it was, and would abide-its sad, re- proachful look, growing" more reproachful still. Napoleon now resorted to the excitement of stimulants to sup- port his spirits. Approaching a side-table, he filled a goblet with the sparkling fluid, and swallowed its contents. When in the act of replacing the glass, a distant clock to...

SUMMARY FOR ENGLAND PER THE G. S. S. S. HARBINGER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 7 January 1854

SUMMARY FOR ENGLAND PER THE G. S. S. S. HARBINGER. . OUR last summary of news was despatched to England by the Great Britain, and we proceed briefly to notice, as our space renders necessary, the principal events that have occurred since the depar- ture of that vessel. The 6th of December was marked by the meeting of the Legis- lative Council, which reassembled expressly for the final discussion of the Constitution Bill. The Bill was submitted to some modifi- cations, the hereditary clauses in particular, as every one had foreseen, been thrown out ; but the principle of the Bill, also ac- cording to universal anticipation, was untouched, and the measure itself in its amended state was passed, after some brief and languid debating, by an overwhelming majority. A long series of resolu- tions was brought forward by an honorable member, having for their object to confer definitely and explicitly on the new Legisla- ture privileges analogous to those which the Imperial Parliament enjoys ...

LOUIS NAPOLEON IN NEW YORK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 7 January 1854

LOUIS NAPOLEON IN NEW-YORK. It seems that this little great man was for some time a resident in the city of N. York, living at the house of a countrym m of his miserably poor, profligate and worthless. The editor ot the Brook- lyn Daily Advertiser remembers lum-well, and publishes the fol- lowing recollection of hint : "We knew him while he was residing iii New York, at a lodj ing-housé in Reade-street, then kept by a gentleman who now oc- cupies a hig'h official position under the French Government, At that tim,e he was very poor,' and very dissipated. Notoriously pro- fligate in his habits, and without the pecuniary ability to indulge to the full bent of his inclination the culpable propensities which characterised him,-he was frequently expelled from certain places in which he obtruded himself, and more than a dozen times was i the occupant of a cell at the old jail in the Park, long since torn ' down.

THE SULTAN OF TURKEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 7 January 1854

THE SULTAN OF TURKEY. Bayard Taylor gives the following interesting description of the Sultan of Turkey :-"Sultan Abdul Medjid is a man of about thirty, though he looks older. He has a mild, amiable, weak face, dark eyes, a prominent nose, and short, darkbrown moustache and beard. His face is thin, and wrinkles are already making their ap- pearance about the corners of his mouth and eyes. But for a cer- tain vacancy of expression, he would be called a handsome man. He sits on his horse with much ease and grace, though there is a slight stoop in his shoulders. His legs are crooked, owing to which cause he appears awkward when on his feet, though he wears a long cloak to conceal the deformity. Indulgence has weakened a constitution naturally not strong, and increased that mildness j which has now become a defect in his character. He was dressed ; in a style of the utmost richness and elegance. He wore a red I Turkish fez, with an immense rosette of brilliants, and a floating plume of ...

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

VICTORIA. . On the 29th ult, a grand farewell entertainment was given to his Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor, previous to his departure     for England, which was attended by a numerous body of officials, merchants, wealthy citizens, settlers and others. The decorations of the dancing hall were entirely new, and well conceived. It was illuminated with nearly two thousand lights, skilfully arranged, which well illumined the arabesque designs in hangings of every pleasing hue, relieved by folds of tarlatan, gracefully, draped in circumambient beauty. His Excellency arrived at the ball-room at half-past-nine o'clock, and was conducted to the raised dais at the southern end of the room. The dancing was conducted with great spirit by the numerous company, who exceeded two thou- sand. Shortly before twelve o'clock, the Speaker of the Legisla- tive Council presented his Excellency with an address, accompa- nied by a cup of gold, to which he replied in feeling t...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 7 January 1854

NEWS OF THE WEEK. BAZAAR.-A Bazaar, to aid in the erection of a suitable resi- dence for the Sisters of Charity, was opened on Weduesnay last,, in the north-eastern division of the Market, which was tastefully decorated with flags and boughs. Some beautiful specimens of needlework, Chinese ornaments in ivory, jewellery, &c, decorated the different stalls. A hand of music contributed much to the enlivening" of the scene. The building .has been well attended, and we have no doubt that the amount realised from such a praise- worthy effort will he large. MURDER.-A verdict of wilful murder has been returned against Elizabeth Wall, by a Coroner's jury, and of aiding and abetting against William Kenny and Jessie Anderson. The victim is a Mrs. Sarah Dempsey, and the scene of the outrage was a court or yard off Castlereagh-street. MELANCHOLY OCCURRENCE.-On Saturday last, an elderly, female, whose name we have not ascertained, met her death under very distressing circumstances. She ha...

BEECHWORTH. (From our own Correspondent.) January 3, 1854. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 14 January 1854

BEECHWORTH. (From our own Correspondent.) January 3, 1S54-. The new rush to the " Buckland River" Gold Field, like its antecedent the " Buffalo rush," has denuded us of our population ; but, as the new diggings will not furnish, a tenth, part of necessary workable ground for the general, miners; numbers must return or ' push on elsewhere. There are neither flat nor table lands in the vicinity, and I am told that disappointment is very great, and cases of individual suffering of frequent occurrence. I believe those working the river (mostly Americans) are doing well. A party while exploring further into the- bush towards Gipps' Land, fell in with a party of blacks, and a fight ensued, but with what result is not correctly known, though it was stated that some were killed on both sides. The people or miners of New South Wales must not be deceived into a belief of the richness of these dig- gings. Individual instances of great success would inore fre- quently occur, if the thousands wh...
