PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 14 January 1854
PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. ROYAL VICTORIA THEATRE.- MR. ROGERS' BENEFIT. "We beg to call the attention of our readers to an advertisement which appears in another part of our paper, announcinur the benefit of Mr. Rogers in this place of public amusement, for Monday evening. We need not urge this gentleman's claims on the con- sideration of the theatre-going public, nor point out the manyg-ood points in his professional character which entitle him to rank as a leading actor in the Australian Colonies. We may, however, mention that Mr. Rogers has been the mainstay of the Theatre for some months, and we only trust the public will make a practi- cal acknowledgment by giving him a bumper house. MA LOOM'S CIRCUS.-We understand that the proprietor has encaged a leading hand from the Hobarton and Melbourne thea- tres, who is to make his debut in a new piece next week. The company at present engaged deserve credit for the spirited manner in which the performances have lately been sustained. Miss Gra...
THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS ADVANCE AUSTRALIA. SATURDAY, JANUARY 14, 1854. TURKEY TAKING UP THE RUSSIAN GAUNTLET. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 14 January 1854
SATURDAY, JANUARY 14, 1854. TURKEY TAKING UP THE RUSSIAN GAUNTLET. OUR anticipations that the Sultan would speedily issue the decla- ration of war which' his Council had recommended have been con- tinued ;. and if, within fifteen days of the date of notification, the Russian army of occupation had not been withdrawn from the invaded provinces, hostilities were to commence, and prepara- tions were to bc made for enforcing by the sword an evacuation ~ which had been denied to the appeals of law and justice. In vain have many und vigorous efforts been made, to divert the Sultan from his firm resolve : in vain have the probable consequences of his temerity, as his conduet is designated, been represented to him. He seems filled with the spirit of the immortal line of Plomer- , Hois oíanos aristos, amunesthai peri patres or, as Pope rather feebly translates it, His sword the brave man draws, And knows no omen but his country's cause. No evil foreboding is suffered to rebuke and quench the...

THE GRAND ANNUAL FETE AT THE ZOOLOGICAL GARDENS, BOTANY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 14 January 1854
I THE GRAND ANNUAL FETE AT THE ZOOLOGICAL GARDENS, BOTANY. The deservedly high esteem in which this popular and fashion- able establishment is held, induced us on a former occasion to present our readers with a.sketch of the appearance the place usually presents ; under ordinary circumstances, we would not have recurred so soon to the subject, but that the brilliancy of the scene on the occasion of the recent,/eie (Boxing clay) struck us as peculiarly suitable for representation in the Illustrated Sydney News. The festivity is one of annual occurrence, and has invariably been conducted in the spirit of order and propriety which is cha- racteristic of the establishment. It has been estimated that more than six thousand persons visited the grounds in the course of thc day, among whom the general feeling appeared to be 'one of entire satisfaction with the day's amusement, and with the exertions of the spirited proprietor, Mr. Beaumont. SHIPS AN» SLIPS.-Wc perceive that our old friend t...

LATE ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 14 January 1854
LATE ENGLISH NEWS. I The steamer Australian which arrived in Sydney on Monday last, brings news from England to the 15th October. "We give the following brief summary from our files of English and Mel- bourne papers. Turkey had declared war against Russia, on the 1st October, but a delay of 15 days was granted to the Russian Armies to eva- cuate the Danubian Principalities. The English and French fleets were still lying at Beiska Bay. Lord Stratford de Rad- cliffe, the English ambassador at Constantinople had received full instructions to order up or retrograde the British fleet, as he might deem it necessary. A levy of 150,000 men had been decreed, and all the Russian functionaries ordered to leave the country. , The navigation of the Danube and of the Black Sea will remain open to neutral flags. The Turkish fleet is to be stationed'at Battshik. It is positively stated that Dembinski will have the command of 20,000 men in the Turkish army, and that the clergy have offered the Ottom...
THE HANGING ROCK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 14 January 1854
THU HANGING ROCK DIGGINGS. THE HANGING ROCK. I . Tn the mountain range that divides the heard of the Barnard River from the head of the Peel (and which is part of the great dividing range which runs from Cape Howe to the north of the colony, separating the eastern waters from the western), one peak rises' perpendicularly from Oakenville Creek, a tributary of the Peel. To the perpendicular craggy side of the peak the name of "the Hanging Rock" is given. It jis'a conspicuous object for many miles to the westward. y' For some years there has been a dray track up one of the ridges adjoining the Hanging Rock, leading from the valley of the Peel to the noble land of New England : but being exceedingly steep it was little frequented, and the Hanging Rock was almost un- known, till about the beginning of 1852, when gold was discovered there. The honour of the first discovery is contested, as usual ; but it is generally believed that that honour is due to a stockman named Parsons. ¡; The dig...

Heroic soldiers !-rather than dare To risk one single child's jor woman's life By crowding-in the boats where fear is rife, Ye dare to faoe the iix'd, remorseless stare Of present and inevitable Death, "Who even now strangles your gallant breath Such was the spirit that, in battle-strife, Hook-like withstood, and broke, and dash'd afar The surging billows of the Gallic war !

VICTORIA. . .. ? ff During the latter end of December, we learn that a .'regular train of,highway robberies was carried on,between Buninyong.and Meredith, and in one instance the robbers had fired at their victim.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 14 January 1854
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. A very severe thunder storm took place at Adelaide on the 22ud ult. The lightning struck a lavsre chimney, having three separate flues, at Barnard's Exchange, by which it was split from top to bottom.

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 14 January 1854
TASMANIA. Bush fires are, still very prevalent near . Launceston, and throughout the district. We learn from the Cornwall Chronicle, that a labouring man named John McKenzie had been robbed of the sum of £345 12s., while in a state of intoxication. McKenzie, it appears, contem- plated going to England. A private letter from Longford states that the scarlet fever is still raging there, and the measles have been introduced by a newly arrived emigrant vessel from Port Phillip. The Lieutenant-Governor has directed that an increase of 50 per cent, on the return of stock and crop for each district, shall in future be allowed the Chief Disirict Constable stationed there. His Excellency has also ordered that, on account of the difficulty, and in some instances the impossibility, which exists in procuring the services of free men for the police, such men as are at present in the force are to be retained for a month or two. The crops in the neighbourhood of Clarence and Muddy Plains are in a ...

IMPORTANT DISCOVERY OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 14 January 1854
.IMPORTANT DISCOVERY OF- GOLD. Ordinary travellers, working gold diggers and scientific men who have visited the Tambaroora country, all agree in the opinion that so far as external appearances indicate the auriferous character ?of,.the.earth, no more promising field offers itself to the industry and enterprise of the gold-seeker. Scores of square miles of virgin soil, .whose surface has never yet been broken by the pick ov spade, and in all probability strongly impregnated with gold, stretch out in every direction, affording space, when water is procurable, for thousands upon thousands of dig ers. The extraordinary richness of this district has been amply verified within the. last few days by a discovery of auriferous quartz upon Hawkin's Ridge near Tam- baroora, which offers to eclipse anything yet discovered in the ."Wtstsm districts. The particulars, as communicated to us by one who has benefited largely from the event, are as follow :-? Some eil?lr or nine days ago a digger cam...
