PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 11 February 1854
¡ PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. ST MARY'S! CHORAL SOCIETY.-This Society gave an enter- tainment to its friends on Monday evening, and the numerous .company assembled, appeared to be highly delighted. Miss Harris lent her powerful aid on the occasion, and was of great ser- vice in leading the sopranos, which are frequently the weakest and most unsteady portion of a chorus. We were glad to perceive that the selection was nearly all part music. The practice of singing in parts should be extensively encouraged. It is a most delightful adjunct of a family party, and we are convinced that it might be made an important agent indirectly, in stemming the tide of in- temperance which all so mitch deplore. If the joining people would form means and practice together, Sydney might become eminent as a musical city. The favourite song of the Indian Drum, by Bishop, met with great applause, as it deserved, and the laughable ditty of High Diddle, Diddle, met with a unanimous encore. Mr. Nathan, the conductor,...
THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AUSTRALIA. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 1854. LATEST EUROPEAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 11 February 1854
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY ll, 1S54. ' LATEST EUROPEAN NEWS. English papers Have reached Melbourne to the 14th -November. We are therefore indebted to our Melbourne contemporaries for the following brief summary. . ? The Emperor of Russia had issued a manifesto setting- forth that no other alternative but war had been left, to compel the Ottoman. Government to respect treaties, and to obtain from it the reparation of the offences by which it responded to our most-moderate de- mands, and to our legitimate solicitude for the defence of' the orthodox faith in the East, which is also the'religion of the Russian people. '« ? . . ! . : The Times ol'November 14, in a leading article of some length, speaks of this manifestó and the conduct of the Emperor in very severe terms. Thc following is ah extract :-We have thus a war- like manifesto, grounded upon the necessity of securing "a faith- ful observance of treaties," without a single allegation in proof of such treaties having been infringed. We h...
THE LILY OF THE VALLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 11 February 1854
THE LILY OF THE VALLEY. «What an angel !"-" Say rather a lily of the valley !» The speakers were two young sportsmen in the highlands Scotland, who, wearied by a long days' shooting, were approac ing a hill-side spring, famous in that wild district for the coom and pureness of its waters. They had just reached the brow the elevation overlooking the rural fountain, when the sight oi young girl, in the first blush of womanly beauty, sitting by t spring, drew these ejaculations from them in succession. As th spoke they stopped, by a common impulse, to gaze on the f vision a moment before it should be dissipated, which they knew would on their appearance. The young girl was sitting on a low. rock that rose by the si of the fountain, her dimpled elbow resting on the cliff, and li head leaning on her hand. Her attitude was one of nature's oi choosing, and graceful in the extreme, as all such careless pc tures are. The figure of the maiden was slight and sylph-lil yet exquisitely proportio...

THE STEAM-SHIP GOLDEN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 11 February 1854
THE STEAM-SHIP GOLDEN AGE. This splendid steam-ship (of which we this week give an en- graving), is now hourly expected in our port, and in anticipation of lier arrival, we present our readers with the following account of her.-She was built in New York by Mr. "Wm. H. Brown, of live oak, locust, and cedar; she is double diagonally braced with iron bars oin. wide, by gin. thick, placed 4ft. apart j'.she is ceiled with Sin. plank, and has la kelsons running the whole length of the ship. She has accommodation for ü'00 steerage passengers the berths furnished with neat mattrasses and pillows, the latter rendered life preserving, by means of an impervious cotton felting. She is admirably ventilated, thus tending materially to lessen the chances of fever, plagues, and other nuisances. The cabins and saloons ave gorgeous-rose, satin, and zebra work, crimson and gold plush hangings, mirrovs'and sofas, all contribute to the com- fort of passengers, and serve to show to what perfection uphols...
NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 11 February 1854
NEWS OF THE WEEK. ANOTHER CASE OF POISONING.-A melancholy event, brought on by excessive drinking/ occurred on Saturday last. It appears from the evidence given at the inquest held on the body of a man named William Stewart, that he had lately been much addicted to drink, and that, on his return home on the evening of Friday 3rd instant, he told his wife he would soon " put an end to- it," and afterwards swallowed the whole contents of a cup, con- taining, there is no doubt, a large quantity of arsenic-at the same" time saying to her, " Margaret, give her (his child) what is in the cup, and she will not be long after me." No medical aid was sought till seven o'clock next morning, and oh. the wife's returning; with Dr. McVitie, the unfortunate man had ceased to live. On a post mortem examination of the body being made by Dr. McVitie, death was found to have been caused by the introduction' of arsenic into the stomach. The Jury returned a verdict to that effect, and desired the corone...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 11 February 1854
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. 1 THE GOVERNOR.-We believe we may confidently state that His Excellency Sir Henry Young has received private letters from England, advising him to hold himself in readiness for speedy removal to some other seat of Government.-Register. Nothing decisive has yet transpired relative to the reported gold discovery at the Black Springs ; but little hope appears to be en- tertained of a remunerative gold field existing there. The destructive fire at Mr. Charles Giles's appears .to have been occasioned through the blasting of a log by a neighbour. The loss is far greater than was previously estimated. Upwards of ¿£200 wortli of apples were roasted on the trees ; 3600 apple, 258 pear trees, 50S Jordon almond trees, more than 20,000 vines, 186 cy- press trees, 1000 poplars, and an immense collection of plants and shrubs, many of them very valuable, were completely destroyed. About 14 acres of fruit trees are all that have escaped out of 82 acres under cultivation.
VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 11 February 1854
VICTORIA. - i Lieutenant-Governor La Trobe paid a visit to Geelong on the ,28th ult. His chief object was to inspect the various public works now in progress. Before leaving, he gave a cheque for £25 towards the funds of the lïospital. The foundation-stone of St. John's Episcopal Church was laid . by the Rev. the Dean of Melbourne on the 30th ult., in presence of a very numerous and influential assemblage. Addresses were delivered by different ministers, and in the evening the auspicious event was commemorated by a tea-meeting. The passengers of the Harbinger entertained her respected com- mander, Captain Lane, at dinner, within the Criterion Hotel, on the 27th ult, when they presented him with a handsome anchor, manufactured of Australian gold, and a choice Victorian nugget, in testimony of his excellent conduct during the voyage. A new paper is about to be started at Ballarat under the title of the Ballarat Times. An elegant gold cup, manufactured by Mr. Drew, of Collins street, w...
T. S. MORT, ESQ. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 11 February 1854
T. S. MORT, ESQ. We trust our readers will recognise"in our portrait on another page, the features of the well known Coryplueus of Sydney Auc- tioneers, Mr. T. S. Mort. To the inhabitants of Sydney it would be quite superfluous, as it would be distasteful to him, to dwell upon the many claims he possesses to their esteem. The opinion that is universally entertained of his high and honorable character is sufficiently proved by the vast pecuniary interests that are con- stantly committed unreservedly to his disposal. There are very few positions in trade where judgment, sagacity, and inflexible in- tegrity, are so absolutely necessary, as when acting as agent for others in their own concerns. The eminence that Mr. Mort has obtained in this capacity, is a testimony far higher than any we can oller in his praise ; and could only have been founded upon the experience of a numerous and well satisfied body of clients. It is, however, not only as a clever man of business that Mr. Mort is de...
