NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 14 January 1854

NEWS OF THE WEEK. TUE CATHOLIC ALMANAC AND DIRECTORY FOR 1854.--We have received a copy of the above Almanac, the first of the kind, we believe, which has been published in this colony. It is brought .out in a very creditable style, and contains a considerable mass of matter which is not found in Almanacs in general. It is appro- priately embellished with engravings of Archbishop Polding and Bishop Davis, and will, no doubt, supply a want which has been felt by one sect of religionists. The typography, by Mr. Cuning ham, of King-street, is very creditable. WOOLCOTT AND CLARK'S ALMANAC FOR 1854.-We have received a copy of this Sheet Almanac, which, we are confident, from the neat way in which it is got up, will commanda ready sale. Besides having the usual information to be found in similar publications, it contains a well executed wood engraving, by our .artist, Mr. W. G. Mason, from a drawing by Mr. P. Terry, of part of George-street, which includes several public buildings. BAZAAR...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of, the Illustrated Sydney News. Royal Bazaar, Sydney, 11th Jan., 1854. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 14 January 1854

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of, the Illustrated Sydney News. Royal Bazaar, Sydney, 11th Jan., 1854. Gentlemen-I have to thank you for the notice taken in your last issue, under the head of" lloyal Bazaar," of my undertaking at the Royal Hotel-at the same time to call your attention to another article in the next column about the promenade gallery, of,which it is evident the writer of that article did not properly un- derstand the appropriation and use. I shall, therefore, have much pleasure in explaining to you my intention regarding it, and hope to remove your impression that its arrangements are illiberal, &c, and that the principal difference from its London prototypes is the addition of a Picture Gallery and Lounging place, to which alone any subscription is charged. This gallery has been erected at great cost,, and is not intended for the sale of any kind of goods, except such as will be ornamental to the room, and contribute to the comfort and amusement.of visitors;...

SPORTING EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 14 January 1854

SPORTING EVENTS. TROTTING MATCH.-A trotting match for £25 a-side, distance five miles, came off on the Parramatta Road, on Saturday after- noon last, between Mr. T. Hayes's bay cob, General Tom T.iumb, and Mr. S. C. Beal's chesnut mare, Flirt. The number who int 1 assembled to witness the contest was considerable. Although the mare took the lead at starting, and kept it for some distance, she unfortunately broke ; the cob then took her place, which he m«in tained to the last, and came in the winner. The horse ! w.-re ridden by the owners. SYDNEY RIFLE CLUB.-The Annual Shooting Match of this club took place on the ground near the New Cemetery,- S irvey Hills, on Monday last; The attendance of members and visitors was rather numerous. The shooting was excellent, and exhibited a marked improvement-no doubt the result of careful« practice on anything we had seen at; a previous annual or quarterly meet-. j ing. The following is the order in which the prizes were a worded . First prize, t...

JENKINS IN SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 14 January 1854

JENKINS IN SYDNEY. YES, ladies and gentlemen, Jenkins-the great, the im- mortal Jenkins-is in Sydney,-is actually among you. Some of you, who are mere ladies and gentlemen, may not feel much interest at this announcement ; but among the Botany Bay aristocracy great will he the sensation which the intelligence will create. We can see that refined and dominant class quivering with agitation : we can perceive its exclusive circles thrilling-thrilling to their very centres -with emotion. The much-loved Mayfair and Belgravia are deserted : their lordly pavements no longer reverbe- rate the footsteps of Jenkins. No longer may that im- perishable, individual be seen rushing in frantic haste to .. St. George's,' Hanover Square, after an aristocratic wed- ding : no longer does he mount outside upon a lamppost, in order from that unpretending elevation to obtain an accurate view of the bride as she steps into her carriage. Indiscreet and mercenary footmen are no more bribed with halfcrowns to...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. CASTLEMAINE. (From our own Correspondent.) January 2nd, 1854. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 14 January 1854

I MINING INTELLIGENCE. : ;' '." - CASTLEMAINE. (From our own Correspondent.) y< January 2nd, 1854. in ii _J . Christmas day'hï this quarter was very dull, cold, and stormy, greatcoats being everywhere in requisition. On Boxing day the sports at the public'houses were very general. Wrestling, boxing, fencing, quoiting, and racing took the lead, all of which went off very well, although we think'there was too little regard paid to the principles inculcated by Father Mathew. Christmas* however, comes but once a year, and the 'Castlemaine Free Hospital' would, we daresay,- benefit by the excess. The- diggings generally have not turned out so favourably as my last communication would lead you to anticipate. I may, mention,. however, as a stroke of good fortune, that a Mr: Phillips brought down here a fine nugget weighing 100 ozs. \ dwt, which had been found near Mount Molige, where thousands are engaged in mining operations. Mount Molige and Mount Mcivor appear to be fa- vouri...

THE CUTENESS OF A LAWYER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 14 January 1854

THE CUTENESS OF A LAWYER. About ninety years ago, the celebrated Counsellor Costello was in his zenith at the Irish Bar, where he was unrivalled for wit, j acuteness, and propensity to brogue. His practice lay consider- ably in the Criminal Courts, where by his ingenuity, he enabled I most deserving culprits to evade the well earned punishment of the law. He was one day summoned to Newgate in a hurry, and in a case of ureat emergency. The safe or strong box of Glendour and i Co. had been plundered to an immense amount. Suspicion had fallen on the deputy cashier, who was in consequence arrested and sent to prison, inside the walls of which he was advised by his fel- low prisoners, (whom, on his entrance, he had conciliated by ' com- ing down ' handsomely) to send for Mr. Costello, who would, if any man could, save his life. It was in obedience to this sum- mons that the Counsellor repaired to Newgate-a practice not very genteel in London, perhaps, but not at all unusual in Dublin. " ...

ST. PHILIP'S CHURCH, CHURCH-HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 21 January 1854

ST. PHILIP'S CHURCH, CHURCH-HILL. The building of this church, of which the Venerable Arch- deacon Cowper is the officiating clergyman, was commenced in 1800, but was not completed till about ten years afterwards, although it had been occupied for a period of twelve months pre- viously. The tower, which was originally of brick, was- the first part erected, and was finished in 1797. This tower, however fell in 1800, and was rebuilt of stone. A temporary church had been erected at the expense of the Chaplain, the Rev.Mr. Johnson, in 1793, and has the honour of being the first church built in this colony. It was, however, destroyed by fire in 1798, after which a ' brick building, which stood at the rear of the Bank of Australasia, was fitted up and used as a church for upwards of two years. The Orphan School, which was* founded on 1st October, 1S00, was afterwards set apart as a place of jmblic worship, and continued to " be used for that purpose till the removal of Governor Bligh, in ...

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 21 January 1854

? PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. MR. .PAXTON'S SCOTTISH -ENTERTAINMENT.-Mr. Paxton muiit .liaye felt highly gratified at the very warm reception he met in the. School of Arts on Tuesday:,evening. The house was crowded, and we could see that his own countrymen formed a large .proportion of.the audience. The entertainment is the first of a series which Mr. Paxton proposes to give .weekly. The style is after Wilson and Templeton,: the, .interest being sustained by anecdotes and explanatory remarks illustrative of tho songs an- nounced in the programme. We thought "Tak yer auld cloak aboot ye" .the best song .of the,.evening.' On being, called for a second time, Mr. Paxton introduced, with the approval of the audience, a very delightful variety in the shape of " Widow Machree,".. which was sung with- good taste and considerable navktte. 'We think he might, with .great effect, adopt this.as a general principle, his style of Irish song being highly creditable to him. The enthusiasm displayed by thc a...

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AND AUSTRALIAN SATURDAY, JANUARY 21, 1854. NEATEST EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 21 January 1854

SATURDAY, JANUARY 21, 1854. j NEATEST EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. ¡ BY the P. and O. Company's screw steamer, Madras, Captain Parfitt (formerly of the Shanghai) commander, we have news from England to the 8th of November, and from Malta to the 12th of that month. It will be seen that war has commenced along the Danube, and that, so far as it had gone, our opinions, expressed last week, as to the spirit of the Turks and their competency to make an unaided stand against Russia, are more than confirmed, i On the 28th October the Egyptian General, Selim Pasha, crossed the Danube at the head of 25,000 men. The Russians, resisting, were driven back in great disorder, with a loss of many killed and wounded, and six pieces of cannon. The town of" Kalafat was occupied by the Turks, and remained in their pos- session. Omar Pasha followed with 30,000 men, and effected a successful passage of the river. At Batoum two actions had taken place, both to the advantage of the Turks. In -the second of thes...

THE MYSTERIOUS WEDDING. The Island of Zealand on the northwest is united hy a narro desolate, sandy neck of land to a peninsula, which is beautiful] fertile, and covered with villages, forming within themselves on parish. Beyond the only little city of the peninsula, however, th country extends on to the stormy Categat. It is a region of a feai fully desolate and wild character. Quicksands-have prevente every trace'of vegetation, and moving sand heaps, the sport c storms, which unrestrainedly blow over tlie land fnnn the rude sea perpetually change their position, are heaped up, blown away, am then again collected in another place. I spent an hour, not withou danger, in travelling through this region, which left behind in nv mind an image "of the wildest desolation. Whilst I was ridinj solitary through this dreary, sandy district, there arose from thï sea, northward, a tempest with lightning. The waves heaved them, selves with a troubled motion ; the wild stormy clouds careerec alon...

ORIGINAL POETRY. L'ENVOI. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 21 January 1854

ORIGINAL POETRY. L'ENVOI. Go forth, go forth, my happy song ! Go forth amongst the gay and fair ; And wander 'mid the glitt'ring throng Tho' he, who sends thee, he not there Tho' he, whose breath thou art, may not Be sharer of thine envied lot. Alight on beauty's parted lips, And, soaring thenee, sing sweet and high ; Then, as the lark that sudden dips Into his nest from tuneful sky, Sink back upon those lips again, And there be still, thou happy strain ! ' There take thy fresh and rosy rest : Or, if thou still a rover art, Then slide into her gentle breast, And wake the echoes of her heart And well I know, too happy strain ! Th rm VIP'PV wilt wander forth swain. IGNOTUS.

OUR PORTRAIT GALLERY. I. NATHAN, ESQ.. WRECK OF TUE DALHOUSIE BOUND FOR SYDNEY.-The Times of 22nd October hast, contains a long'account of this melancholy and unfortunate catastrophe, from which we give the following : - The Dalhousie was a line teak built ship of 800 tons; she was launched at Maulmein in 1843, and was. considered a first-class vessel, in good and sound condition. She was the property of Mr. Allen, the shipowner, of Leadenhall-street, and we believe was chartered to Messrs. Fry and Davison, of Fenchurch-street, as one of the White Horse Line of Australian Passenger Ships ; but pre- viously to her being put on the birth, she underwent a thorough overhaul at Mr. Young's Dock, at Limehouse. Her cargo com ! prised every description of merchandise, estimated at upwards of j £100,000. Her master, Captain Butterworth, is said to have been j á most experienced navigator, and to have passed many years in ' the owner's service. She sailed from London on the 13th of Octo- ber ...
