CHRISTMAS MORNING.—HOPES REALISED. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

CHRISTMAS MORNING.-HOPES REALISED. WHERE does that beneficent Divinity of our childhood's years dwell?-that dear old Santa Claus, who descends so many chim- neys in every land in the world on Christ- mas Eve-and tills so many little stockings with gifts, and so many little hearts with delight. That ubiquitous old saint, who is here, there, and everywhere-while the heavy snow is lying deep on English roofs, and long before the ripe red sun is lifting his glowing forehead from the blue Pacific. O, those happy times ! when our Christ mas Eve dreams were big with expectationa and-when Christmas morning brought u . more than the realization of all our hopes !

CHRISTMAS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

CHRISTMAS. OLD CHRISTMAS-despite his powdered head and wrinkled brow, is with us once again. Amid our gains and losses-our cares and sorrows-the old man calls our attention to his presence-and demands-that, for a time at least, we shall forego our allegiance to the anxieties, the pushing and struggling of every-day existence, and own him as our holly-crowned king ! And with what powerful, yet withal what kindly influ- ence he comes !-what tender chords vibrate in the human heart at the sound of his voice-what light and hope come stealing into poor men's homes ! For even, in sunny bright Australia there are poor homes which will be all the brighter for many days to come. For all that the times have been so prosperous, and many who have had empty pockets now jingle money in their purses, there are numbers to whom a little wisely-bestowed j charity would come as gratefully as summer rain on the sun-parched soil. And it is our prerogative as Christians, to have the blessed influence of ...

"A CHRISTMAS EVE REVERIE." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

"A CHRISTMAS EVE REVERIE." AMID all the hilarity and cheeriness of our I golden, glowing, Australian Christmas-tide, there are times when a delicious dreaminess I comes-steals the spirit, and the mind wan ' ders off from the blissful Present to the no less happy Past. In such a state of feeling is the bright haired maiden pourtrayed in our Supple- ment. Deep in reverie, who can read her thoughts ? They may be of Christmas Eves long ago-of those who have come and gone since then - perhaps, of those who shall come no more. And are these unfitting thoughts for happy Christmas Days ? - thoughts that should make us sad ?-Oh, no, -there is no holier time to think of by- gone days, even if they bring us memories of the loved and lost, than this glad time of peace and good-will. 'Tis sweet to think upon the past, For, days now long gone by Impart a halo to the breast Like star-lamps in the sky ; And though, perchance, bur early yearn 'Wore mingled with regret, The emerald beauty of tho Past...

The Month. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

Cfce áíftontft. ; XJp to within a short time ago, everything in Parliament worked as smoothly as a skilf ufiy fitted and well lnhricated engine j and we had begun to flatter ourselves tb at the "nagging" propensities of our politicians, and their once common habit of calling each other "naughty names," were to be classed among things departed. But, to our horror, we find the old leaven still in existence, and ready to show its presence should sufficient inducement offer. That nasty word 44 liar " -so provocative of an intense desire to punch the speaker's head-has been hurled into the teeth of an honorable member- and his mode of receiving the attack reflected great credit on his coolness of temper and gentlemanly deportment. Instead of the usual "you're another " style of argument, he held up his detractor to the scorn of the Assembly, and certainly got the best of the affair. A little persistence in this mode of meeting an attack would do much towards bringing such un- pleasant ep...

Selections tërabe anti tëap* THE NEWSPAPER APPRECIATED. -With- < out my newspaper, life would narrow itself i to the small limits of my personal experi- ; enees, and humanity be compressed into the ten or fifteen people I mix with. Now, I refuse to accept this. 1 have not a sixpence in consols, but I want to know how they stand. I was never-I never, in all likeli- hood shall be-in Japan ; but I have an in- tense curiosity to know what our troops did at Yokohama. I deplore the people who suffered by that railway smash ; and I sym- pathise with that newly-married couple so beautifully depicted in the "Illustrated," as they drove off in a chaise and four, the bald old gent at the hall door waving them a last adieu. I like the letters of the cor- respondents, with their little grievances about unpunctual trains, or some unwarrant- able omissions in the Liturgy. I even like the people who chronicle the rainfall and record the little facts about the mildness of the season. As f...

THE ARAB. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

THE AHAB. IN our lash number we presented our readers with a portrait of the style of borse we con- sider tbe best to breed from for general purposes. "We now submit some curious particulars respecting this breed of horses furnished by the.celebrated Abd-el-Kader to General Daumas. They will be found instruc- tive and are well worth the studying : November 8, 1851 (the 23rd of Moharrem, the first month of 1268.) Glory to the One God. His reign alone is eternal. Health to him who equals in good qualities all the men of his time, who seeks only after good, whose heart is pure and his discourse accomplished, the wise, the intelligent Lord, General "Danmas, on the part of your friend, fciid-el-Hadi Abd-el-Kader, son of Mahi Eddin. Behold the answer to your questions. I. You ask how many days an Arabian horse can travel without resting, and with- out being made to suffer too much. Know that a horse who is sound in all his members, who eats barley which his stomach requires, can do whatev...

GOVETT'S LEAP, BLACKHEATH, N.S.W. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

GOVETTS LEAP. BLACKHEATH. N.S.W. IN the matter accompanying the large view of Govett's Leap, published in last issue, an error occurs with regard to the origin of its name. In this respect the matter supplied to us was eutirely at fault. The name, in fact, was conferred on the "Leap" or cata j ract of water, by Sir Thomas Mitchell, in honour of the late Mr. Surveyor Govett, who discovered the waterfall wheu assisting Sir Thomas in the survey of the old Bathurst line of road. Mr. Govett returned to Eng- land in 1838, and died a few years afterwards, j leaving a widow, who still survives. We j very much regret that any member of Mr. Govett's family should be pained by the reprint of any current erroneous statement, and hasten to make , this correction, as we are informed, on reliable authority, that Mr. Govett was a gentleman of most estimable character, and one who ranked very high in the opinion of those who knew him best.

STARTING FOR THE PICNIC. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

STARTING "FOR THE PICNIC. I OF all the pleasures connected with Christ I mas in Australia, nothing is more enjoyable than the time-honoured picnic. The orthodox Christmas dinner must be eaten, and neces- sarily indoors ; but then follow the holidays -the pleasrnt retreats of wood and water, where the sunshine, if it come at all, comes with its golden arrows broken by the leafage. Our illustration is rather of former days before our multitude of steamboats made harbour excursions the holiday of thousands, and before cheap railway trips drew off so many from the city and suburbs. Then the picnic was effected as we have represented it-chiefly in tilted vehicles to beautiful spots some few miles from the metropolis. Even at the present time, scores of families thus honour the season, and every Christmas holiday we note at the outlets of the city vehicles of all kinds, full of, happy pas- sengers.

Ladies' Column. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

faînes;* Column* WOMAN'S WORK.-The Queen's Institute, Dublin, was established in 1861. Its object is to educate young women to usefui occu- pations-such as the use of the sewing ma- chine, and the art of cutting out and super- intending work ; educating them as commer- cial accountants and correspondents, for enabling them to conduct foreign business correspondence (in French and German); for training them in law writing, in lithography, in engraving, in telegraphy, in painting photographs, and in drawing and designing. I PARENTAL "DAMPER" FOR JUVENILE LOVERS.-A young man in New York was the victim of misplaced confidence a short time ago. He was particularly sweet on a very young lady, and called one evening, having previously paid her several visits. The girl's parents thinking both too young to begin to keep company with each other, gave a gentle hint to that effect-first by calling the girl out of the room and sending her to bed ; and secondly, by the lady of the house bringing ...

POISONOUS PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

POISONOUS PLANTS. ALMOST everyone (remarks the Queenslander) has some occasion to handle plants. This is. sometimes connected with unpleasant results by the want of knowledge to discriminate harmless from poisonous species. The fol- lowing general rules may prove useful, espe- ' dally the two last, under which many of the poisonous prickly plants of the Aiistralian scrub may be classed. The list is collected from different authors : PLANTS NOT POISONOUS. . 1. Plants with a glume calyx (bracts or outer chaff), as wheat, corn, foxtail, grasB, &c. 2. Plants whose stamens stand on the calyx-apple, peach, strawberry, &c. 3. Plants with cruciform flowers (with four petals, arranged in form of a cross)-mus-, tard, cabbage, turnips, &c. 4. Plants with papilonaceous (butterfly shaped)-pea, bean, clover, &c. 5. Plants with labiate corols (a corol divided at the top in two general parts), bearing seeds without pericarp, seed-bag, or pod, somewhat resembling lips...

F. L. MONTAGUE'S ART UNION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

F. L. MONTAGUE'S ART UNION. THE distribution of prizes to the members of Mr. Fearuleigh L. Montague's Art Union took place at the Mechanics' School of Arts, on Saturday morning last, and was eminently successful. Mr. John Frazer presided, and was assisted by Mr. Septimus A. Stephen, Mr. A. C. Garrick, and Mr. Thomas Rowe. The tickets were drawn from a reticule by a little girl, and as each was handed to Mr. Stephen that gentleman announced the num- ber to the assembled subscribers. Mr. Gar- rick checked the numbers, and Mr. Rowe entered on a separate schedule for the sub- scribers the particulars of the drawing. The names, &c, of the successful mem- bers were subsequently published in the Evening News of the same day, and the Herald of the following Monday. Every- thing passed off with unanimous approval, and it remains for us to congratulate Mr. Montague on the very pleasing and satisfactory manner in which bis arrange- ments are invariably carried ont, and to wish him succ...
