THE FRUITS OF WAR AND PEACE. (From "Flowers Freshly Gathered," by James Stonehouse.) OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 4 February 1854

- THE FRUITS OF WAR AND PEACE. (From " Flowers-Freshly Gathered," by James Stonehouse.) OF WAU. The warrior Avaves his standard high, His falchion flashes in the fray : He madly shouts his battle cry, And glories in a deathful day ; But Famine's at the city gate, And Rapine prowls without the walls, The country round lies1 desolate, While Havoc's bli hting- footstep falls. By ruined hearths, by homes defiled, By scenes that Nature's village mar, We tell the storm of passions wild, j And pluck the bitter fruits of war. INVOCATION. With lightsome feet, come, lovely Peace, And quench the beacon on the hill ; O ! bid the sword its mission cease, And hush the clarion wild and shrill. Thy balmy breath shall plenty bring, Thy presence prosp'rous days restore, While Love shall spread his golden wing, And hope fill every heart once more. OF PEACE. The cobweb hangs on sword and belt, The charger draws the gliding plough, The cannons in the furnace melt, And turn to gentle purpose now ; The th...

LONG-TAILED, OR GREAT FLYING SQUIRREL. Petauvista Tagiunoides. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 4 February 1854

THE FLYING SQUIRREL, AND THE RING-TAILED OPOSSUM. LONG-TAILED, OR GREAT FLYING SQUIRREL. Petauvista Tagiumoides. This beautiful animal (one of our Australian Marsupials) is the largest of the genus at present known to us. It measures about 3 feet 6 inches in length, of which the tail is more than one half. The body is covered all over with a soft dense fur ; the colour on the upper portion of the body is of a glossy black, while the under parts are pure white. The female has usually two or three young ones at a birth. They feed chiefly on the largest of the Eucalypti, or Gum Trees, preferring the leaves and young shoots of those trees, though occasionally they eat insects. The Great Flying Squirrel is found nearly all over New South Wales ; in fact, where ever the large gum trees aboxind, this animal is sure to be met with. Like most of the Marsupials it moves about at night. The most remarkable feature in this genus is the broad membrane con- necting the fore and hind legs, which e...

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AUSTRALIA. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1854. A WORD ABOUT EXPLORATION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 4 February 1854

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 185*. A WORD ABOUT EXPLORATION. AT length the weary problem is solved, and the obstinate instinct j of science confirmed. The suspected communication between the Atlantic and the North Pacific Oceans has been established, and the discovery of the north-Avest passage will immortalise the name of McClure. By this memorable event one field of romantic but barren enterprise is closed, and tile fascination of mystery AVÍII no more tempt the lloAver of England's navy to brave the stormy ruin and icy death of the pule. The fate of Franklin and his crew is still Avrapt in impenetrable horror. The stern Genius of those regions, forced to relinquish the geographical secret so long and so stubbornly preserved, indemnifies himself by obliterating every trace that may indicate thc doom of mortality. Nor Avere our brave countrymen the only persons Avho Avasted their lives upon thc northern speculation. A hirge and distinguished meeting, re- cently held at Willis' Rooms, Kin ...

NATIVE ARTS. No. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 4 February 1854

j . NATIVE ARTS. No. 2. In their native state, when independent of the Government blanket and the worn clothes of the charitable, the skin of the opossum was a valuable article to the aborigines of Australia, and preserved with some care. When the skin is not required, the animal, before cooking, is merely plucked of its fur, which is, if - requisite, employed in the formation of yarn, a description of which will follow.' But when the native intends to make a cloak, the skin is carefully removed and pegged by means of numerous wooden skewers to a small sheet of bark cut for the purpose. In some cases the raw surface is rubbed with fine wood ashes, and the fur always put next the'bark. When dry, the skin is squared, and the process of carving commences ; this is done by the females, and is a very tedious task. The operator seats herself on the ground, and folding the skin, still with the fur inside, places it within her knees, and with a sharp stone removes portions of the inner skin...

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

TASMANIA., Tlie local papers are filled with accounts of a series of disasters caused hy extensive bush fires which had occurred in the Huon districts. Property to a large amount had been destroyed ; and, up to the 19th ultimo, it is supposed that twenty lives have been lost. The Guardian of the 17th has the following:-"Last Wednesday has witnessed another of those terrific visitations of the fiery element, disporting itself with desolating fury at Port Cygnet, Leamington, and the Huon. One general sheet of fire overspread the whole district for miles, whilst dense columns of pitchy smoke, wave after wave, overhung the appalling" scene. The establishment of the Rev. Mr. Andrewartha, at Flight's Bay, and the house of Mr. Murphy, at Leamington, are in ashes. Dead bodies have been discovered, and great apprehensions are now en- tertained that many lives have been lost." , A. G. Stoner, Esq., Solicitor-General of Tasmania, was expected. His health, we believe, was completely restored. T...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 4 February 1854

1 WvEWS OF THE WEEK, THE WAVERLY MURDER.-The adjourned inquest was re .sunied on Wednesday. A large concourse of people had assem- bled before the appointed hour, and on the opening of the doors, ;the Courtroom was immediately filled, while many were obliged to remain outside, for want of room. The lad Templeman, as our readers ai'e aware, is the party who stands accused of the murder. His conduct during the enquiry was firm and collected, but he ap- pears thinner and paler than he did on his first appearance. In reply to the Coroner, he stated that lie entrusted his defence en- tirely to his solicitor (Mr. Thurlow.) The witnesses, whose de- positions were taken at Goulburn and Berrima, not being in at- tendance, the case was further postponed till Thursday, the 2nd of March, so as to give time to have them all brought together. The jury was then bound over in their own recognizances of £100 each, to appear at the Police Office, George-street, at ll o'clock, ¡ a.m., on the day above...

OUR PORTRAIT GALLERY. THE HON. EDWARD DEAS THOMSON, ESQ. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 4 February 1854

OUR PORTRAIT GALLERY. I THE HON. EDWARD DEAS THOMSON, ESQ. j EDWARD DEAS THOMSON, ESQ., has, as our readers are aware, only recently taken his departure in the Vinte Ira for England. This circumstance, coupled with the fact that he has held a high official situation for the last seventeen years, and that previous to his leaving the colony, a most distinguished mark of respect was paid to him hy a large and influential body of his fellow colonists, has induced us to present a portrait of him this week to our readers. The following particulars of his early history, for which,we are mainly indebted to Duncan's Weekly Register, a journal edited with considerable ability during the years 1S43-184.5, may not be uninteresting. Mr. Thomson was born at Edinburgh on the 1st of June, 1800, and is, therefore, now in his 5-Kh year. He is the youngest son of the late Sir John Deas Thomson, K.C.H., Ac- countant-General of Her Majesty's Navy, who was married to a daughter of the late John .Freer, E...

GRIEVANCE MONGERING UNDER DIFFICULTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 4 February 1854

GRIEVANCEMONG-ERING- UNDER DIFFICULTIES. IF a serious proposition were made to tunnel through the globe-to construct a railway to the moon-or to econo- mise in the matter of lucifer matches by lighting our pipes at a comet's tail-we might perhaps require no excuse for exposing the impracticability of any of these schemes ; but the project of a separation between Australia and the mother country is so wanton, so preposterous, so ridicu- lous in the eyes of men of. sense and so hateful in the eyes of the good, that we may seem bound to apologise for any notice of it whatever, as a piece of tiresome and offensive superfluity. When the country is at thë height of a prosperity never before attained-when children have to refer to a dictionary to ascertain the meaning of that obsolete word "poverty"-when England has, as far as in her lies, redressed every real grievance-this is the time selected to inaugurate an agitation for the removal of an imaginary one : Dr. Lang la cry wat quia nil l...
