RUSSIA, TURKEY, FRANCE, AND ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1853
RUSSIA, TURKEY, FRANCE, AND ENGLAND. FRANCE has not only acted differently as regards pub- licity, but has conducted her portions of the negociations with marked decision as to the claims of Russia to be the sole protector of the Holy places which she has so adroitly made a ground of quarrel. For example, the French &nbsp; Minister of 1853 disposes of the main question in dispute by a quotation from a Memorandum by Count de St. Priest, the Ambassador of France at Constantinople, from 1768 to 1785, which is so pertinent to the matter in dispute that we shall transcribe the passage. "The seal of our &nbsp; kings," said M. de St. Priest, "has been adorned with &nbsp; the title of protector of the Catholic faith in the Levant; &nbsp; but that term is illusory, and serves to mislead those who have not examined the thing. The Sultans have never had so much as an idea that the kings of France thought themselves authorized to meddle with the religion of the P...
NOTES ON THE MONTHS. OCTOBER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1853
NOTES ON THE MONTHS. OCTOBER. IN these busy times, and in the universal pursuit of wealth which &nbsp; characterises the state of things among us, the beauties of nature are in danger of being overlooked. We believe that there are many old inhabitants―nay, even native Australians―who know little of the natural history of this great continent. Confined to the town, and engrossed by its pursuits, as they are, the thousand wonders of the creation vainly invite their attention. Perhaps a few remarks on our natural history, in a simple and popular style, may be ac- ceptable. So numerous are the writers who have illustrated the beauties of England, that ignorance of them, oh the part of any one who can read, must be voluntary. Australia, a land of many won- ders, claims a similar attention. Beginning, therefore, with the present month, October, we will notice some of her indigenous productions. In the high branches of the sombre Eucalyptus, we hear the caw caw of the clamorous you...
GREAT FIRE IN GE0RGE-STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 October 1853
GREAT FIRE IN GEORGE-STREET. On Tuesday evening, about 10 o'clock, an alarming fire broke out in the premises situated between the Commercial Bank and the &nbsp; Golden Fleece Hotel. The building has been for some time past in the occupation of Mr. MᶜDonald, brush maker and fancy ware merchant. We give the following abridged account from a lengthened report which appeared in the Herald of Thursday last: &nbsp; ―So soon as the fire was discovered, the usual alarm was given, and the inhabitants in the neighbourhood were of course quickly aroused to a sense of their danger. Every effort was made, both by the people in the streets and the occupants of the adjacent houses, to intercept the progress of the fire, and it is thought that if it had not been for the exertions of these people, combined with the fact that there was not a breath of wind at the time, both the Commercial Bank and the Golden Fleece Hotel would have shared the same fate. Although the Insurance Company...

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 October 1853
PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. THE THEATRE.-We visited the Theatre on Monday evening, to witness the drama of " Uncle Tom's Cabin," adapted from the well-known tale of that name by Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe. The piece is necessarily very much curtailed, find wants inany of the vivid pictures of slave life so well ponrtrayed by this talented authoress; although our dramatic author has not left it without in- terest. Mr. Rogers as ' Uncle Tom' was most characteristic. He is really a most valuable actor. Miss Hart s highland fling was most inappropriate ; the other steps were quite in place. We ob- served a marked difference in the reading on Tuesday evening. Madame Strebinger's Spanish Pas Seul ' Ee Ole' was executed, with much ease and grace. We think her the most finished danseuse we have seen in Sydney. " Box and Cox Married and. Settled," though very laughable in some respects, does not please us so well as the old farce of the same name, in which our London friends, Keeley and Buckstone app...
SYDNEY HORSE MARKET.—OCTOBER 22. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 October 1853
SYDNEY HORSE MARKET.-OCTOBER 22. Mr. Chas. Martyn reports that the Horse Market during the past week has been on the decline, and buyers are only to be found at reduced prices, in consequence of the continued rise in the price of hay, which has been reported to have gone as hhh as £37 per ton. Many parties have sold their horses on that account, thereby caus- ing a reduction in prices. The heavy draughts offered for sale durinsr the week havabeen town dray horses ; parted with by new owners, on account of the jjreat expense of keeping them. Fdr some weeks to come there does not appear much prospect of a reaction. , Mr. S. C. Burt of Stewart's Horse Bazaar, reports ths week's demands to have exceeded the supply, and notwithstanding the continued hióh price.of fodder, harness horses still maintain good prices. Light well-bred hacks are not so saleable ; strone journey horses are wanted, as are also strong colts suited for coaching and carriage purposes. Strong mares broken to harness ...

THE TURON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 October 1853
THE TURON. "WHILST acting as your Turon Correspondent, I shall scrupulously avoid the practice, too frequently pursued hy interested parties of giving unfair or exaggerated accounts of the Gold Fields. This practice hus been very properly denounced by one of the represen- tatives of the daily press. Considering that tidings of our auriferous yields are circulated by the press throughout the civi- lized world, it is indispensibly necessary,' that articles from the Gold Fields should be authentic and tr"1- information they contain reliable. My present communication is sadly devoid of interest to the general reader. Throughout these districts things have been j.jniserubly dull, for the past eight months, but there are now strong indications of a reaction. It is hardly necessary to mention the cause of this dullness. 'The'alien clause, the exhorbitant license foe, and the heavy penalties to which-'the diggers and others w»re liable, for n.m-coiupliance,with the provisions of the Gold Bi...
HOUSE RENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 October 1853
HOUSE RENTS. THE following passage is taken from a recent number of-a Melbourne paper, and is a pretty accurate representation of the state of matters in the Australasian capital :-" A young man has just quitted Melbourne for the diggings;; ? and before his departure, he made the. following ofter for. the tenancy of his house. The messuage contains four; rooms, is surrounded by a fence, and has a convenient compound attached to the rear premises. The owner wanted ¿£4-0 for the furniture; ¿61 per week* for two months, and £2 per week for ten months, or the remain- ing term of lease, should the occupant riot wish to take the furniture, then the rent was go at ¿£3 a-week. The "house is situated at the top of Great Bourke-street East, and was taken possession of the other evening. -We are ?under the impression that our brother!...:iT^iirnalist' .while penning the above passage was labouring ' under the;con- ception that matters, as regarded house-rent, had arrived , at a'ppuit of extort...
ANIMAL MAGNETISM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 October 1853
ANIMAL MAGNETISM. l'A very interesting and easily arranged experiment, analogous to I the recent trials of Table Moving, exemplifying the mysterious ! science of Animal Magnetism can be performed by the simple aid of a key, a book, and a piece of string. These should be arranged j as shewn in our illustration, the key being partially inserted \ between the lejives of the book, and securely confined in its posi- ' 1 tion by the string". Two persons should then each place a ibre-i finger under the oval top of the key, so'that it hanis easily and un- confined upon them-,'mentally wishing the suspended book, &c, to revolve, they will almost immediately turn in the direction desired. The hands of the operators should be kept perfectly steady, to avoid any appearance of intentional muscular action.
THE CLIPPER SHIP "STAR OF THE EAST." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 October 1853
I THE CLIPPER SHIP " STAR OF THE EAST." : ; WE present our readers this week with a spirited sketch OJ 'this ? clipper, and we trust that the style in which-the portrait is executed j will indicate that we are making every endeavour to produce pie ! tures at once accurate and pleasing. °ur comparatively limited ! space necessarily prevents our saying much in reference to this j vessel. We could have wished to have g;ven an extract from a very appropriate article which appeared in the columns of our contemporary the Empire, of the 12th institut, and would reter our readers to that journal for full particulars of her hull and fittings,' sailing qualities, &c. She was built in the early part of this year at St. John's, New Brunswick, by the celebrated firm of W. and R. Wright, and is at present owned by Messrs. Miller and Thomp- son, of Liverpool. She is now at the Circular Quay discharging, and may be viewed at any time, through the courtesy of her Cap- tain, J. B. Robertson, ...
TROWEL AND MALLET. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 October 1853
TROWEL AND MALLET. WE have received a lengthened communication from Mr. J. H. Morland, of Pitt-street, in reference to the letter of Mr. F. W. Holland, Dixon's Wharf, which appeared in our last.number, the purport of which is to the effect that, although Mr. Morland re- ceived an order from Mr. Holland to carve the _mallet, he was in the employment of the Messrs. Dean. Mr. Morland concludes his letter in the following terms :-" As to the design, I believe it to be my own. If I had any assistance from others," Ii owe as much to the Messrs. Dean's friendly hints as to Mr. Holland's profes- sional orders." We do think that Mr. Morland has no proper ground of complaint to make against Mr. Holland, as it has evi- dently been the latter gentleman's wish to do every justice to him as the manufacturer. Mr. Morland's letter leads us to understand that the Messrs. Dean had no wish whatever to take any credit to themselves in the matter. ?

TABLE MOVING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 October 1853
" '_ . _ _ " TABLE MOVING-. The following letter has been addressed by an American gentle- man resident in Paris to GaUgnxnii's Messenger :-"I have seen in your journal, as well as others, various accounts of moving tables hy animal magnetism. As all these accounts are either inaccurate or inadequate, I take the liberty to make a few statements on the subject. The phenomena of moving tables by a power supposed to be animal magneti m has been familiar to the people of the United States for the last two years. These phenomena consist not merely in moving tables, hats, and chairs, by placing hands upon them, but in the far more interesting and wonderful fact, ' that when charged by the hands they will move in obedience to the will.' It is this latter circumstance which seems to be over- looked in the partial and imperfect experiments$which have been made and reported in Europe. This moving of tables has been connected in America with what are called ' spirit rappings,' and was, in fact...
GOVERNMENT HOUSE, SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 October 1853
, ' ' * ' . , GOVERNMENT HOUSE, SYDNEY. A GOVERNMENT HOUSE, SYDNEY. I WE propose giving in our columns, at short intervals, views and descriptions of Colonial public buildings, and cannot, we-think,. open the series with a better subject than the official residence of his Excellency Sir Charles Augustus Fitz Roy, the Governor General. The building was erected under the superintendence of Mr. Lewis, the present Colonial Architect, from a design by-E. Blore, Esquire, of London, at a cost of upwards of £50,000, the original estimate being £25,000. Its length is 170 feet, height upwards of 40 feet, with apartments at the northern encl for do- mestics. /The Ball-room is 150 feet in length,' and 28 in breadth, exclusive of the Orchestra, and the Halls and State-rooms are cor- respondingly spacious and handsome. The chimney-pieces are manufactured of Australian marble, and the stair-case is con- structed of highly finished native cedar. Government House is erected on an elevated position, ...

GLEANINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 October 1853
GLEANINGS. ? V AN EMIGRATION SCENE.-With that utter unconsciousness and disregard of being the observed of all observers, which charac I terises authentic sorrow, these warm-hearted and simple-minded ' ! people demeaned themselves entirely as if they had been .'shrouded j in all the privacy of home,-clinging to and embracing each other with the utmost ardour, calling out aloud, in broken tones, the endeared names of brother, sister, mother, sobbing and crying, as if the very heart would burst, while the unheard tears ran down from the red and swollen eyes literally in streams. It was a sight that no human being could see unmoved ; and when the final orders were given to clear the ship, and withdraw, the' gangway, the howl of agony that ran at once from the parting deck and,the abandoned pier, was perfectly overpowering. ' O Mary! O Kitty ! O mother dear! O brother; O sister!, God bless you ! God pre- serve you ! tlie Lord in heaven protect you !' and a thousand other, wild and pious...
FINE ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 October 1853
FINE ARTS. AyoNo all the varicms occurrences which constitute the history of human affairs, there are, perhaps none calculated to excite such universal interest as the discovery of unknown countries, and the progress of Art upon the soil and people, which nature, on such occasions, resigns from lier own creative hand to the care and cul- ture of their civilized discoveries. In the noble and beneficent enterprises of discovery and civiliza- tion, no modern nation has surpassed Great Britain ; and, when we look at the present state of Australia, it seems probable that the most recent of her glories of this description will prove the brightest and most valuable. It is, iiideed, impossible to contemplate the scenes of natural grandeur, beauty, richness, and variety,'with which the Colonies of New South Wales and Van Die.men's Land abound, without impressions of-.'mingled delight aij¡$ wonder at such magnificent specimens of the stupendous power of Nature, as they burst upon our view in ...
