OUR POLITICAL SCHISMATICS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 18 February 1854

OUR POLITICAL SCHISMATICS. WE exposed, in a!recent article, the flimsiness and absur- dity of the arguments used' by'Dr. Lang to prove the ex- pediency of lopping the' Australian shoot frorii ¿he great , parent British stem. : As, however,, our readers may; have , been thereby induced to- form a very mean estimate of Dr. Lang's facilities,-a meaner " estimate,' in fact, than they deserve,-Aye consider./ourselves bound, in justice to the reverend gentleman, to :admit? that the conclusion, sought to.be, established, is, in its nature, so entirely false and , vicious that a far, higher intellect than his would be puz- zled to discover in its favor one plausible argument. Schism is represented as a thing most desirable ; is, for its own sake, praised and preached; is held up as the summum bonum ' before- the eyes of wondering mortals. We need not deem it a matter for astonishment th'at failure . in such a cause, should be ridiculous and complete. We', know, and all the world knows, that...

RICKETY DICK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 18 February 1854

RICKETY DICK." ... Poor old Dick ! the last of his tribe, will be recognised by the accompanying sketch. For many years past Dick has been a denizen of Sydney, and of late he has had his "Gunyah" at Rose Bay, where the old man may be daily seen by the visitors to South Head. He is quite a cripple from paralysis, and many a " nixpence falls to his lot from the pleasure seekers and wayfarers on the road.

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS ADVANCE AUSTRALIAN. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1854. THE MONSTER NUISANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 25 February 1854

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1854. THE MONSTER NUISANCE. WHAT are our Commissioners about? With the exception of an abortive raid against the cabmen, they have as yet given no out * ward sign of existence. Their discomfiture in that matter they seem to" bear with great resignation : having been, to all appear- ance, asleep previously, they seem to have relapsed into slumber. Meantime, the victorious heniochocracy exults ; and the aristo- cratic blazonry on the coach-panel is not brought into too close contact with the vulgar number of a hackney-car. It is true that the Board may be engaged in planning the improvement of the city on a great scale, and that a comprehensive project requires time for its excogitation and development. Now, we would be the last persons inthe world to hurry and precipitate the delibera- tions of the Commissioners. We would let their magnificent schemes be duly'revolved, and allow their wisdom to mature what their ingenuity has originated. Still, we cannot shut o...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 25 February 1854

SLAVE AUCTION (From Panorama of Uncle lom's C«i>in.j b VICTORIA. At the meeting of the Free Church Presbytery of Melbourne, ron the, 10th inst., it was agreed to petition the Legislative Council against the clause in the New Constitution making a grant for =£50,000 towards religious purposes, on the ground that it is un scriptural and inexpedient for the State to endow truth and error. The new Education Bill was also petitioned against, as there was ? jio provision made for Scriptural Teaching in the schools, or for , personal piety in the teacher. The friends of the Bank of Victoria boast greatly of its colonial '] .character, and consequently of its greater claim to colonial sup- | port than those banks whose proprietors are only partially, or alto- ¡ pether extra-colonial. It is surely at variance with this boast for the bank to put into the hands of its customers cheque books, printed and manufactured sixteen thousand mi'es away, rather than pay current colonial prices to col...

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 25 February 1854

TASMANIA. . The half-yearly meeting of* the Tasmanian Steam Naviga- tion Company, was held at Ho- bart Town, on the 6th inst., when a dividend at the rate of eight per cent, was declared. Statues of Justice and Com- merce adorn the two ends of the new market building, and form a very complete and hand- some finish to the structure. Justice, which is placed at the end nearest Government House, has the scales poised equally in her left hand, while the right holds the sword, extended by her side ; Commerce, placed at the end nearest the Domain, holds . the olive branch in her right hand, while the several em- blems of her wide domain are placed in appropriate positions around her. Both are extremely well chiselled ; the attitudes are graceful, . even imposing. The - Committee' appointed to raisa subscriptions, and investigate tlie calamities occasioned by the recent bush fires, met a few days since, when it was- found that, they had a sum of £268 15s 6d. from which sums were voted to m...

MEDALLION OF MR. W. C. WENTWORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 25 February 1854

MEDALLION OF Mil. W. C. WENTWORTH. "We liave had great pleasure in inspecting this thoroughly satis- factory work of art, which has been executed in this colony. The artist is a Mr. T. Woolner, a young sculptor of considerable repute among the cognoscenti at home, although his name is not yet wed- ded to any great public work which has brought him both fame and profit. We have, however, seen criticisms upon works of his exhibited at the Royal Academy in London, which testify that, even there, his powers are both understood and appreciated. After, looking at the medallion before us, we must confess to a feeling,of surprise that such an artist was ever permitted to leave j England. It represents Mr. Wentworth's head and,neck in very j high relief, and invests;that head, which we were wont t.o regard as a very ordinary v piece of human furniture, with a force and beauty which it could not have been imagined to be possessed of. : Every muscle of the face is in action, the character of f...

FIRST IMPRESSIONS, OF THE GOLDEN AGE. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 25 February 1854

FIRST IMPRESSIONS, OF THE GOLDEN AGE. I (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) A residence of many mont^ in Sydney has innoculated me with a passion for steam-ships. I was very bad before I left England, and had all the names, tonnage, and horse-power of the Cuhárds, . the Collins line,'the P. and 'O'., and the "West India mail steamer, at'my tongue's end. Tam half ashamed to think how I used to rattle on about the Rattler, and how I'used to insinuate the Screw question into every conversation. I am afraid many of my friends . thought my screw a great bore, and augured that my head was turned by it. But, in my heart, I always cling to the paddle wheel. How triumphantly I would point to the performances of . the Cunards boats-" Where is your salt water gimblett that can come up to that," I would say. Well, Sir, before I left England, T went io Southampton, to have a look at the immense new paddle boats belonging to the West India Mail Company, the Maddalena, the Parana, &c. My belief in the...

AUSTRALASIAN BOTANIC SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 25 February 1854

AUSTRALASIAN BOTANIC SOCIETY. 'j The Autumn Exhibition of this Society took place on-Thursday j last, and though held under many disadvantages, arising from the latejiot and dry weather, was exceedingly good, and, as a whole, full of interest to the botanist. The attendance was numerous, and comprised the élite of Sydney. A collection of twelve miscellane- ous plants, sent by Mr. Thomas Woolley, was unanimously , awarded the first prize, the Society's Gold' Medal. Mr. T. S. j Molt was, as usual, a successful exhibitor, and carried off the j second prize. This gentleman's collection of Ferns, exotic and j indigenous, attracted much attention. We may. also mention a j rich assortment of dahlias from the gardens of Mr. Guilfoyle and \ Mr. McGill, as deserving of commendation. The show of fruits was good, but much yet remains to be done in regard to grapes, which in a grape-growing colony ought far to exceed anything that has hitherto been exhibited. The band of the 11th Regiment attend...

MAUDLINISM ON DRUNKENNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 25 February 1854

MAUDLIÑISM ON DRUNKENNESS. ? SOME people, of a peculiar idiosyncrasy, seem to think that, if a thing be evil, they are privileged, in denouncing it, to utter any. amount of inanity and nonsense. A great nuisance is to them a great blessing ; for it gives them an opportunity of talking. An evil exists, is widely spread, and its prevalence is universally admitted. Hereupon a writer starts up and envelops the matter in a cloud of vaporous words, whose crassness permits nothing, to be seen through it but his own stupid vanity and complacency. The consequence to the reader is, that his disgust at the abuse is almost lost in his oontempt of its denouncer. In these remarks we allude specially to an article in the SYDNEY MORNING HERALD of-Monday, on the nap- less and threadbare subject of drunkenness.' This vice, without doubt, may be said, at the present time, to bear' unbridled sway throughout the colony. That is a. very fearful admission and fact. But is it a reason why . the. public thr...

NOTES OF THE MONTH. FEBRUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 25 February 1854

NOTES OF THE MONTH. FEBRUARY. Tlie orchard fruits are ripe, and several species of birds are com- mitting sad havoe.k. Among" these we recognise the Soldier Bird ( Mxjxantha garrida J, a noisy active little creature, and the Gill Bird {Anthockccra carunculata). The gill or wattle bird is pleasing in its plumage, chiefly striped dark grey and white, with yellow beneath ; under each eye dcsoends a bright red wattle, from which the bird takes its name. The magpies and crows have assembled in flocks ; the latter are seen at sunset making gyrations in the air, and croaking 'mourn fully. From two to three hundred assemble together, roosting iii a high dead tree. When this month pvones, next we have the Wood Duck Be miela Jabata (Steph.) in the collected water in the hollows. Teal and Black Ducks (Anas) are not uncommon. The large black (Ci/pselus Australis) is skimming through the air, and the swift House Martin is the only bird still occupied with ".its broods. The young ducks hatched th...

LIEUTENANT UPTON'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 25 February 1854

LIEUTENANT UPTON'S STORY. i ( Concluded from our last.) \ It was a bright and glorious morning,' when, the blue-peter flying at the furn, a signal ¡ tm was fired, our anchor hove up, and : in stately trim our noble ship stood out of the harbour of Valetta, ; followed by the little Seahorse, who, with her slight spars spread ; witn a crown oí canvass, was uouig uer uesi io Keep way wun us. Slie might have been likened to the young fawn following the ma- jestic doe of the rein-deer over its native wilds. , Lady Emily, who since her first visit to the ship, had ex- : hibited some slight symptoms of illness, seemed to revive with the pure sea breeze, and was able to walk the deck for some time together, either with Sir Roland or her father, without being fatigued. I observed her, as she did so, constantly turn her head towards the brig, with a look which would have given the fullest assurance to Leslie, had he required it, of her devoted affection. The sun went down, and again arose, an...
