Literature. ARRESTED FOR DEBT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872
literature* ARRESTED FOR DEBT. IT came al'out in this way. I was sitting in my office on the evening cf the 23rd December, 1863. I was indulg- ing in some clay dreaming of a very pleasant kind. Clara Follinsbee and I were engaged. But I forgot-you never saw Clara. Shall I describe her to you-but no. In the first place, it is out of my power ; and in the sccoud, it's no business of yours. Let it suffice that she was, and is, in my estima- tion, the daintiest, most bewitching young woman ever created. Was it wonderful that I, who was to spend Christmas-eve and Christmas-day, and a Avhole week of holi- day at her father's country house, was con- juring up a picture of the pleasant time before me, a time made up of laughter and senti- ment, light hearts and deep feeling, of friend- ship, and joy, and kindliness-a Christmas intensified and strengthened in its delights by the blesscd'boon of love which had become mine. 1 sat with a emile on my face, and some- thing like tears of gratitude...
Types of Colonial Life. THE SLY GROG-SELLER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 18 January 1873
Cppes of Colonial £tfo THE SLY GROG-SELLER. BY GEOKGE E. LOYAU. . THE terni Sly Grog-Seller is, as may be sur .mised, strictly a colonial one, and will be .vainly sought for in other parts pf the world save the Antipodes. lb is, therefore, in- herent to Australia-a business which, like Bathurst burr, has taken root in this fair land; to be plain, sly grog-selling is the cause of half the misery existing in the bush. Men following this nefarious calling are mostly found in the country, and the far in- terior is their best sphere of action. There the subject of this sketch is in his glory ; sets the laws at defiance, and does weil with his adulterated liquor. * To illustrate a case. Jack and Tom are splitters in the cedar scrubs of the Richmond River ; they are old hands at the business, and earn good wages, and yet they are poor men. Grog has always been a stumbling block to their advancement, the rock on which all their hopes split. Somehow, they cannot let a single week pass withou...
Literature. CHRISTMAS-EVE IN A COAL-PIT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 18 January 1873
Kite raturf « CHRISTMAS-EVE IN A COAL-PIT. AT that time I waa the resident viewer or engineer of a colliery in the north of Eng- land, and as I had not been long appointed to the post 1 felt anxious, I might almost say nervous, about the management entrusted to my care. Moreover, this recently-acquired position led to the realization of hopes which had long been entertained in secret, and 1 had married my early and only love. This event caused me to put more than, ordinary zeal in the execution of my duties, as it was my ambition to rise in my profession, in order some day to see my wife placed on' that social pedestal I deemed her so worthy of occupying. Indeed, 1 may say . that my attention to business was as constant as it ?was earnest. We lived at the colliery, close, to the pits, in the last of a dreary row of houses built for the accommodation of the officials of the works. Our establishment waB not a luxurious one, and its situation was somewhat lonely, as the pits were place...
Poetry. "TELL IT AGAIN." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 18 January 1873
"TELL IT AGAIN." A little golden bead close to my knee, Sweet eyes of tender gentianella blue Fixed upon mine, a little coaxing voice, Only we two. " Tell it again "-insatiate demand ! And, like a toiling spider, where I sat I wove and spun the many-coloured webs Of this and that Of Dotty Pringle sweeping out her hall Of Greedy Bear-of Santa Claus the good, And how the-little children met the months Within the wood. "Tell it again"-and though the sand-man came, Dropping his drowsy grains in each blue eye, "Tell it again, oh just once more ! " was still The sleepy cry. My Springtime violet early snatched away To fairer gardens, all unknown to me, Gardens of whose invisible, guarded gates I have no key. I weave my fancies now for other ears Th}7 sister blossom who beside me sits, Eosy, imperative, and quick to mark My lagging wits ; But still the stories bear thy name, are thine, Part of the sunshine of thy brief sweet day, Though in her little warm and living hands The book I lay.
RECEPTION OF SIR HERCULES ROBINSON AT GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 18 January 1873
RECEPTION OF HIS EXCELLENCY SIR HERCULES ROBINSON AT GOULBURN. RECEPTION OF SIR HERCULES ROBINSON AT GOULBURN. On Monday, 25th November, the long ex* | pected visit to Goulburn' of his Excellency Sir Hercules Robinson, the Governor of New South Wales, took place, and it forms one of the illustrated. subjects In this issue. Great preparations had been made in order to ensure him a right royal reception, and throughout the various festivities incident to the ooaBion success attended the efforts of the reception committee. His Excellency THE OVERLAND TELEGRAPH DEMONSTRATION, ADELAIDE, S.A., 15TH N O V.

HEALTH AND CLEANLINESS. (Concluded). [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 18 January 1873
HEALTH AND CLEANLINESS. (Concluded). To be clean once is a good thing-to be clean once a week is better-to be clean every day is best. A habit of being clean ia what is wanted. Acquire the habit, and get yourself only once, by way of experiment, into a dirty state, and you will feel then, by contrast, what a wretched thing it is. Captain Mar ryatt, in one of his amusing novels, represents a young gentleman undergoing a week's wrongful imprisonment, and having been de- prived during that time of the means of being clean ; his first impulse, on his libera- tion, notwithstanding all the mental troubles which afflicted him, was to rush to an inn to get himself washed, and attired in clean gar* 1 ments. This was true to life. Now, » i habitually dirty person does not feel uncom- fortable when he is once made clean-quite ¡ the reverse ; and here, too, we have a prac- tical proof of the propriety of cleanliness. A habit cannot be commenced too early. The habit of cleanliness should be begu...
PIONEER KEROSENE WORKS, AMERICAN CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 18 January 1873
PIONEER KEROSENE WORKS, &nbsp; AMERICAN CREEK. &nbsp; &nbsp; IN Illawarra the production and manufacture of kerosene oil is limited to one firm—that of the Messrs. Graham, on American Creek, where their property and works are situated ; and these are well worth a visit. The road to them branches off to the right, within a few yards of the "big fig- tree." At first, the way lies through a comparatively open, grassy country ; but when "Rixon's farm" (one of great beauty) is passed, it enters upon a narrow valley that winds towards, and around, the western base of Mount Kembla —a valley whose sides are steep, stony, and rough, but fertile withal, clad with rich grass and other natural vegetation ; dotted with patches of corn, luxuriant brush, and trailing vines, in many a hook and gully ; shaded by the sassafras and the myrtle ; graced by the cedar, the bangalow, and the cabbage-tree ; and watered by the American Creek, that crosses the park in six or seven plac...
BATAVIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 18 January 1873
BATAVIA. THIS ia a city and seaport of Java, and is situated on the north, coast of the islaud, near the western end, aud is the capital of all the Dutch East Indies. It was founded hy the Dutch in 1619, taken by the British in 1811, and restored to the Dutch in 1816. It is situated on a wide, deep bay, in which are interspersed many low green islets, within which ships find safe anchorage. It is rather a roadstead than a harbour, but from its westerly situation and easy access is the best and most convenient port in the island. The greatest inconvenience is the bar at the mouth, which at low water is almost dry, and seldom has six feet of water. Tl e town is situated in a low marshy plain, at the union of small rivers, which are navigable for boats ; and in many of the streets are canals, tilled with water almost stagnant. The miasmata, generated in the putrid mud b.inks and canals, renders the town exceed- ingly unhealthy, and subject to an inter- mittent fever, very mortal to str...
A CORROBOREE OF THE AUSTRALIAN NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 18 January 1873
A CORROBOREE OE THE AUSTRA- I LIAN NATIVES. I WITH this number we issue a large illustra- tion of that peculiar custom of the Austra- lian aborigines-the Corroboree. To see this in its perfection, it is necessary to get away from the semi-civilized representatives of the Australian black, and see the " lordly savage " in tbe fastnesses of his native wilds. A vivid description of the dance is given in Haygarth's " Recollections of Bush Life in Australia," from which we extract the fol- lowing : " On the evening subsequent to their arri- val, the aborigines, who had been joined by many others during the course of the day, began to prepare for the celebration of their * corroboree,' or general, dance. A pic- turesque flat in the vicinity of the station had been fixed on as the scene of action, whither we repaired at about ten o'clock, anxious for the commencement of our Aus- tralian night's entertainments. Round an enormous log-fire, the flames of which, con- tinually fed by green boug...
Notices of New Books. Sketches of Life in the Bush.—Gibbs, Shallard, and Co., Sydney, 80 pp. cloth, 2s. 6d. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 18 January 1873
Sketches of Life in the Bush. - Gibbs, Shallard, and Co., Sydney, 80 pp. cloth, 2s. 6d. &nbsp; THIS pleasant little volume is the work of a lady long resident in the colony, and who has evidently had a considerable amount of &nbsp; experience of life in the interior. It consists of eighty pages of interesting matter concerning the every-day incidents that came under the writer's notice while sojourning in the &nbsp; vicinity of the Darling. It describes the long journey overland, of nearly eleven hundred miles ; pourtrays the "bush" home ; and &nbsp; &nbsp; narrates the vicissitudes which the far away settler has to endure. A deep religious tone pervades the whole volume, showing how a cheerful, contented mind makes "the &nbsp; best" of all things ; and in laying down the &nbsp; book, we have but one regret, that is, that with such abundant material at command, and such a pleasant way of using it up, the authoress did not give ...
VIEW IN DARLING HARBOUR EIGHTY YEARS AGO. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 18 January 1873
VIEW IN DARLING HARBOUR EIGHTY YEARS AGO. IN accordance with our usual custom at this the Anniversary month of the foundation of the colony, we present on our front page a sketch of scenery near Sydney, in the olden' time. It is only by comparing its present &nbsp; appearance with these old sketches that we can form any adequate idea of the marvellous change which eighty years have effected. The foreground of the picture in this issue is what is now known as Miller's Point, and is one of the most densely-populated portions of our city. The wooded shores and points be- yond are those of Balmain and North Shore, two of the most thriving suburbs of Sydney, while the entrance of the Parramatta River, seen in the centre, is now marked by nume- rous picturesque villas, and a perfect fleet of steamers and fruit boats. Any person stand- ing on Flagstaff Hill, with our view in hand, will mark the alteration time and civilization has made.
THE VICTORIAN VOLUNTEER ENGINEERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 18 January 1873
THE VICTORIAN VOLUNTEER ENGINEERS. On Saturday afternoon, 14th. December, there was a quarterly inspection parade of the Victorian Volunteer Engineer Corps held on the drill ground above Prince's Bridge. Major Parnell was in command, the other officers on the ground being Captain Dall, Lieutenants Phelan and Roberts, and Assist- ant-surgeon James. There were 100 rank and file at the muster. Colonel Anderson, commandant, attended by Adjutant Bull, having inspected the corps, the men, being in two companies, formed quarter column, piled arms, and proceeded to throw the bar- rel-pier bridge across the river. This was accomplished in just half an hour. This is considered to be very good, approaching, as it does, to within a few minutes of the time taken by the Royal Engineers to perform &nbsp; similar work. "When completed, the military authorities present crossed the bridge, and soon after the public were allowed to test its strength. The taking to pieces and packing away were ...
GOURLAY'S WAX-WORK AND VARIETY EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 18 January 1873
GOURLAY'S WAX-WORK AND VARIETY EXHIBITION. . A PLEASANT evening may be spent in the suite of rooms fitted up and furnished for an exhibition of a miscellaneous character by Mr. and Mrs. Gourlay. To enumerate all the attractions provided by these experienced caterers for the amusement of the public would take more space than we have at command, but we may mention that they comprise-an excellent Diorama, painted by the well-known scenic artist Mr. W. J. Wil- son-a collection of life-sized wax-works-a number of Automaton figures, including the slack-rope vaulter-also a select concert of music and dancing by Mr. Gourlay's talented family. To all who desire to find two hours' amusement of a rational and agreeable character, we recommend a visit to thi3 entertainment.
The Month. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 18 January 1873
SINCE our last issue, Christmas has come and gone, the holidays have held regal sway, and we have fairly entered on the Kew Year. The . orthodox pudding, has been eaten, we presume, in every family, and the time-honoured Christmas goose, or some equally tasty and substantial substitute, has been consumed, and now people have returned to the dis- cussion of more common-place edibles. The kindly guest, who " comes but once a year," has paid his visit, and we seem to hear the faint echo of his chariot-wheels dying away in the distance ; but who does not entertain the hope that the sweet influences, which cheery Christ- mas scatters in his train, will linger with us till he visits tis again ! Of all the Australian colonies, perhaps none enter so freely, or largely into the festivities of the Christmas season, as do the good people of New South Wales. Doubtless, they bear iii their composition more of the spirit of their British forefathers, with whom, for many long, centuries, Christmas...
