SHEEP SHEARING AT MR. J. W. CHISHOLM'S, NEAR GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 28 January 1854

SHEEP SHEARING _ AT MR. J. W. CHISHOLM'S, NEAR GOULBURN. The flock's having undergone the washing process, a few days are allowed for drying; and the yolk of the fleece to rise; hut the time miich depends upon the state of the weather, which, if fine, a shorter period will suffice. i The'shéep are then driven to the-shearing pens, from whence a certain number are placed upon the hattened or grated portion of the shed, on the floored centre of which the clipping commences, as shown above. In the distance are to be observed the. men choosing their sheep, ere bringing them to their respective stations on the shearing floor, as shown with the shearers at work. The figure in the foreground represents the fleece gatherer, Whose business it is to collect the fleeces, from the 'different shearers when taken from the animals backs. On the right.will be seen the sorting room, where the fleeces are arranged or assorted, previous to packing, after having been cai'e fully rolled up and tied by t...

TUR LADY FREEMASON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 28 January 1854

TUR LADY FREEMASON. I [Jon. Elizabeth St. Leger was the only female who was ever initiated into the ancient and honourable nfystery of Freemasonary. How she obtained the honour, we shall lay before our readers, pro- mising that our information is derived from the best sources. Lord Doneraile, Miss St. Leaguer's father a very zealous Mason, held a warrant, and occasionally opened a lodge at Doneraile House, his sons and some intimate friends assisting ; and it is:said that never were masonic duties more rigidly performeu than by the brethern of No. 15Ö, the number of their warrant. It appears that previous lo the initiation of a gentleman to the first steps of masonry, Miss St. Leger, who was a young girl, happened to he in an apartment, adjoining the room generally used as a lodge room ; but whether the young- lady was there by design or accident, we cannot confi- dently state. The room at the time was undergoing.some alteration ; amongst other things, the wall was considerably redu...

We are informed that Mr. George Coppin has returned to Adelaide, previous to his final departure for England, for the purpose of honourably discharging the liabilities incurred during the pressure of 1851.

THINK FOR ONE MOMENT. HOW often do we find the' above words used, and in how many different ways applied, and how momentous may they be construed. For instance, "Think for one moment," into what miserv Europe would be plunged by a war with RUSSIA AND TURKEY. Or "Think for one moment" what' will be the effect of the CHINESE REBELLION. Or, "Think for one moment" what becomes of the vast quantity of cane-seated chairs sold at DEAN'S Furniture Warehouse! viz., One Thousand Weekly! Al- most incredulous, you may remark, but neverthe- less true. But this; is*easily accounted for, for three important reasons. First, their great strength and durability. Second, their superior finish. And, thirdly, their extreme cheapness, which has gained for the Messrs. PETER AND WILLIAM DEAN a name hitherto unequalled for notoriety in the Australian colonies. This is no extravagant puff, but a reasonable conclusion adduced from the vast quantity of orders pouring in from country and town. It should he born...

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AUSTRALIA. SATURDAY, JANUARY 28, 1834. THE ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 28 January 1854

JO* . asm . «. SATURDAY, JANUARY 28, 1S-31-. THE ANNIVERSARY. ON Thursday the colony of New South Wales completed the Go'th anniversary of its foundation ; and, when we look around us at that colony, we cannot help being lost in wonder at the incongruity between its youth and thc vigorous growth which it has attained. We shall not, however, dwell upon reflections which are trite and cum m on, and upon contrasts which the nature of the case imme- diately suggests to every one.- -Which of us has not considered with amazement that but little more than half a century has elapsed since thc first settlers arrived to dispute the exclusive domain of the kangaroo and the savage-since the first white foot touched thc barbarous shore, and the first stroke of the civilising axe rang through the forest primeval ? It requires, indeed, some effort to believe that, within the space of an ordinary lifetime, a nation has sprung into existence, has passed irs adolescence, and is already swelling out i...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 28 January 1854

MINING INTELLIGENCE. THE ROCKY RIVER.-HANGING ROCK, January 14.-The whole of the main creek is being* well sluiced by a number of parties. Every available piece of sluicing ground in this creek is taken up, and those situations which were formerly considered in- capable of being worked, on account of the rocks and gibbers pre- senting so formidable an appearance, are now being successfully worked by sluicing parties. Gold digging is one of the greatest lotteries in existence, for when men, however well acquainted with the art of mining, strike into unbroken ground, they cannot tell whoilier or not gold will be found there in payable quantities. The most unlikely spots haye frequently turned out the richest, and so ?Jilsu ground which has been imperfectly worked will often pay for re-working. There is a little gully at the head of the main creek which has yielded upwards of £30,000 worth of gold; as much as 37 ounces have been taken out in one day, and it is not yet worked out. Child...

THE VENERABLE ARCHDEACON COWPER, D.D. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 28 January 1854

THE VENERABLE ARCHDEACON COWPER, D.D. WE this day present our readers with a likeness of the Venerable Archdeacon Cowper, D.D. It is taken from a portrait which has been executed by Mr. Claxton, and which appears to have been done with great fidelity. This venerable gentleman is now in the 76th year of his age, having been born at Whittington, Lancashire, on the 28th De- cember, 1778. He was ordained Deacon by the Bishop of Win- chester, in the Chapel Royal, St. James's (by letters dimissory from the Archbishop of Canterbury), early in the year 1808, and Priest, by the Bishop of Bristol, in the same year. He was for a short time Curate of Rawdon, near Leeds.* But having been solicited, by the Rev. Samuel Marsden, during his visit to England at that period, to undertake the office-of Colonial Assistant Chaplain, and having entered into this engagement, he proceeded hither with his family, notwithstanding urgent-en- treaties ?nd strong inducements to the contrary, and arrived in the c...

ANNIVERSARY REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 28 January 1854

ANNIVERSARY REGATTA.     The Sixty-sixth Anniversary of the colony was celebrated on Thursday by a Regatta, which eclipsed in all the essentials of that national pastime, its predecessors. The day was glorious and sunny, a fresh breeze from the N. E. made the competing crafts "walk the waters like things, of life," and all things conspired to   make the day a real holiday. We may truly say that all Sydney was out in its holiday garments, and therefore we shall be excused from giving a detailed account of the different races, cramped as we also are for want of space ; we shall briefly notice, however, the 5th and 13th matches, which were, so to speak, the races of the day. The 5th was the Champion race for all boats pulling a pair of sculls-first prize £21 second £5 5s, and after a spirited contest, was won by Thos. McGrath, Green being a very good second, and George Mulhall rather astern. The result proves Mulhall too heavy for a light skiff, a...

THE SOLDIER'S SON; OR, THE TRIUMPH OF VIRTUE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 4 February 1854

THE SOLDIER'S SON; OR, THE TRIUMPH OF VIRTUE. (Concluded from our last.) Who shall describe the mingling ot kindred spiritsWho shall trace the intricate and delicate sources of that mysterious passion which sweeps like a torrent' over the human soul ? Scarcely a word had passed between the youthful strangers ; they knew nothing of each other beyond the limits of a few short days ; yet tlie years that preceded had become to them as a tedious dream ; their present was their all of existence, and resembled the reno vated life of the chrysalis, when it " sails on new wings through ? summer air." As yet, however, unconscious of the dangerous source of this new sense of enjoyment, they met without embarrassment. The bl ush that dyed the cheek of Isabel in the presence of the stranger was that of abstract pleasure ; and the light which flashed upon his eye' at her approach was as brilliant as the rays of heaven. The failing health of the old blind man, whom he daily attended to the spring,...

FACETIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 4 February 1854

FACE TI JE. " In one of the American regiments in Mexico there was a cor- poral, who, when the roll was being called, refused to answer to the name of " Ebenezer Mead." The officer repeated the call. No answer. " Is Ebenezer Mead on the ground ?"-" Eben Mead is here," quoth the corporal. The '' Ebenezer" was repeated again, in a tone like a northwester. "Captain," quoth the ram- pant corporal, " your name is Peter Read ; would you respond if you were called Peter-sneezer Read?" He was taken to the guard-house, tried for contempt, and reduced to the ranks. DRY WIT.-Dr. Jaspar Main, who lived in the reign of James I. of England, was celebrated as a scholar and a wit. He displayed through life a strong propensity for innocent raillery and practical jokes. Just before he expired, he told his servant, who was sadly addicted to intemperance, that he had bequeathed' him something that would make him drink. The servant,- as soon as his master was dead, impatiently opened the legacy, expecti...
