IRELAND IN 1853. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 11 February 1854

IRELAND-IN 1853. A Belfast journal draws the following1 sketch of the present con- dition of Ireland as contrasted with that epoch in her history when professional agitation ruled paramount in three, at least, out of the four provinces :-" Ireland has at length aroused herself. The turning point seems to have been passed, and a new era in her his- ; tory is already commenced. Sectarian animosity gradually dies ! away before the workings of social advancement ; and political agitation is not only less attractive, but far less profitable than it was in those palmy days when the prophets of conciliation hall were went to foretell the future glories of College Green. The land of saints has also been famed as the theatre of miracles; and certainly in no other portion of Queen Victoria's dominions have such miracles been wrought, or such wonders performed, as those which, during the past ten years, followed in the wake of Ireland's current history. In 18-13, that extraordinary man, Daniel...

OUR DEAF AND DUMB. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 11 February 1854

OUR DEAF AND -DUMB. .] '? ?, FOR a long time the unhappy .condition of the deaf mute;, had been disregarded and neglected by his fellow-men. Incapable of communicating his ideas 'by speech-with ears on which every .human accent fell in vain-he seemed,, by a natural barrier not. to be removed pr surmounted, to; be separated from his race,- and condemned to a drear and eternal isolation. That he had no soul - no mind - no < moral nature - was perhaps, if- they ever thought oil the subject, taken for granted by most people. The great poet of Greece comprehended all men in the epithet "arti- culately-speaking " as. universally applicable. : Jhere was a creature to whom it did not apply-could he, then, be re- garded as a mari? Where was the visible difference be- tween him and a brute ? if any existed, it did not clearly appear. By the expression of his face, indeed, and by his, gestures he might show a faint gleam of intelligence--but could not a dog do the same? Those, again...

THE CAFE RESTAURANT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 11 February 1854

THE CAFE RESTAURANT. WE this week,present our readers with an illustration of this at-, tractive témpíe dcdicated to the genius of French Cookery. Our English readers will doubtless imagine, when they hear of a restaurant being established in New South Wales, that the most recherché plats will consist 01 Kangaroo sieaxs or- parrot pie ; in- deed, in the illustrations furnished by our facetious friend, Punch, there is a bill of fare depicted in which these toothsome dishes figure very prominently. Until the opening' of this very excel- lent restaurant, we are quite of opinion that Sydney was immersed in the thickest darkness in culinary matters. We can sympathise with our contemporary, the Empire, as to the " tough beef and tasteless mutton" to which he had been unhap- pily condemned. We have a very strong idea that good cookery would contribute quite as much to the individual happiness of this community asi a,good constitution, and dreadful as the admission may seem, we would indivi...

TESTIMONIAL TO CAPTAIN LUDLOW. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 18 February 1854

TESTIMONIAL TO CAPTAIN LUDLOW. Wc have had some testimonials lately, in the getting up and subscribing to which fliinkeyism wás.enabled to enjoy its full fling. We are very far from asserting or insinuating that any consider- able number of contributions was elicited by another feeling than a real sense of the merits which it was proposed to recognise. What we mean to say is, that, if a spirit of adulation, servility, and self-interest existed, it had, from the very nature of the case, a most favorable opportunity for its indulgence. It is, therefore, witli no ordinary pleasure that we now draw the attention of our readers to another testimonial which can neither excite nor gratify any sordid or ignoble sentiment, having for its sole object the public acknowledgement of a deed of high-heaited courage and self-denying humanity. The individual, now to be honored, is Captain Ludlow, of the American ship Monmouth, whose philanthropy was successfully exerted for the salvation of the pass...

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1854, A WORD OF WARNING TO GOLD-DIGGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 18 February 1854

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1854, A WORD OF WARNING TO GOLD-DIGGERS. CERTAIN exciting rumours in reference to gold-discoveries in South America have created a considerable sensation among our dimming population, which in Melbourne seems to have resulted in a wîld and unreasoning impulse. Some idea of the prevailing mania may be caught from the fact that in one day, at the latter port, thirteen ships had been laid on for Callao. Now, as we are convinced that this enterprise is rash and illjudged in the extreme, and that it will bc the cause of great misery and ruin to numbers, we would request any of our readers, who may feel tempted by its promises, to weigh well, before finally committing themselves, the following considerations. In the first place, tho prospects held out should be very brilliant indeed to induce a man to quit Australia for another gold-pro- ducing country, to be reached only In a louy- sea-voyage. We should expect to hear stories of nuggets outweighing Dr. Kerr's celeb...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. . BRAIDWOOD.-The accounts received by us during the week from the new diggings, on the Woolshed Creek, are of such a cha- racter as to create a reasonable expectation that they will prove highly remunerative. One party that bottomed a hole on Satur- day last procured 14 ozs., and another 1.1 £ ozs. ; a third party did far better, finding within 3 \ feet of the surface a nest of nuggets, the size of beaus, weighing in all ö ozs. 3 dwts.-Goulburn Herald. , Since I last wrote to you, several parties have hit on good wash- ing stufF.

At another part of the diggings Mr. Hickey's party are doing well ; and many are rocking out ef the dry diggings (sa) parties of three and four) from 1 to 3 ozs. per day ; and, as usual, many are doing nothing.
