THE DREAM OF A LIFE. (Found among the Papers of a Student of Medicine.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 4 March 1854

OUR PORTRAIT GALLERY. PORTRAIT OF MR. S. H. MARSH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 4 March 1854

OVÉ PORTRAIT GALLERY: : PORTRAIT OF MR, S, H. MARSH. ' ' Oïie of the most pressing duties of the Colonial press at the present moment is to urge forward by every means direct or indi- rect the formation of railways. : To;pay honor .to those who have in any way forwarded this great object to encourage them to renewed exertions, and to stimulate others to follow their example, is an indirect assistance which-it is. tlíe-d-ity of the press of this colony to render.

SYDNEY POLICE COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 4 March 1854

SYDNEY POLICE COURT. On Monday, the drunkard's list contained no less than twenty six offenders, six of whom paid fines of 40s. each, rather than suffer the exposé of a court of justice. Three paid the fine of 20s, which was inflicted, aud the remaining 17 were imprisoned for twenty four hours in default. [The system of fining for drunkenness is, in our opinion, manifestly defective, and the imprisonment for twenty-four tours too short a period. The unfortunate victims have scarcely time to get sober before they are turned out again, and rush to the nearest grog shop to get " a hair of the dog that bit them," as they call it. In cases where an individual is evi- dently under the influence of liquor, and his nerves shattered and unstrung by indulgence, we should recommend a week's imprison- ment to enforce abstinence, and induce a sober state of mind and body.-ED. I. S. N.] ILLEGALLY ON PREMISES.-Matthew Donovan, a wild-look- ing Irishman, whose amusement when drunk consists in thras...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. ¿LIBEL ON CAPTAIN FITZ ROY.-Messrs. Hawkesley and "Williamson, publishers of the People's Advocate, appeared on sum- mons to answer an information filed by Captain Fitz Roy, in which they were charged with having, in the paper of Saturday last, published concerning him a false, scandalous, and malicious libel, in the following form :-" Assault and Cheating at Cards. The talk of the day has every hour a supply of new developments of the increasing blackguardism of people standing higher in rank, than the much abused community. One of the most recent cases is, that at a merchant's house at Parramatta, a party holding a distinguished appointment in the viceregal household, who was a guest at an evening party, was detected cheating at cards ! The host challenged the offence, distinguishing the offender with the appellation of-scoundrel ! The latter squared at the party who had so properly designated him, and the affair, in, this pretty state of effervescence, came to b...

ORIGINAL POETRY. AN ANGLO-AUSTRALIAN SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 11 March 1854

ORIGINAL POETRY. AN ANGLO-AUSTRALIAN SONG. We Englishmen have restless souls, And feet that wander far : ' Each wave upon the sea that rolls Sustains our ocean-car. Where snows are white, arid frosts are hard. Our conquering banner waves ; And burning India's glory-starr'd With English soldiers' graves. In skies the southern globe that bound We've wat^h'd new planets stir, And p'ac'd 'twixt us and English ground The earth's diameter. Yet still, across each land that parts, Across the ocean-foam, ? ? . The love magnetic of our hearts Points to our island-home. To us its very soil is blest, For 'tis the dusf/we know, Of hearts the bravest and the best That ever beat below. The bard, the hero, and the sage, The statesman and the priest, Whose names are stars on history's page,, Have lent the quick'ning yeast Of words and deeds, that are not dead, And thoughts, a noble band, And blood for freedom freely shed, To leaven all the land. The English Cross shines bright by day, The Southern C...

ENGLAND. Tlie Court went into mourning for the late Queen of Portugal ; were to change mourning on the 11 th of December ; ,and go out of mourning December 18. ' ¡ The force of the British Navy at the present time is 217 ships ! in [actual commission. If fully manned according to the esta- blished, scale of complements, each for the service of which she is employed, the aggregate complements of these 217 ships would be ahpve 44,000, of wjjiqh number 30,000 may be called seamen, 72130 marines, and,6^.0 boys. But from the great scarcity of seamen, and the, numerous desertions(that have taken place, pro- bably the effective,force of the navy does not amount to above 41,000 of all classes.

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. SATURDAY, MARCH ll, 1854. THE POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 11 March 1854

SATURDAY, MARCH ll, 1854. THE POLICE. AT thc eleventh hour, when our police force was at the point of utter dissolution - when the " few and faint, but fearless still," that continued to patrol the streets in corulean garb, were be- coming objects of interest in our eyes, as the sole surviving and curious relics of a once flourishing, but now nearly extinct, order -when we were expecting daily to be reduced to one of these, and to see our last constable left, like " the last rose of summer," alone,, but alas, unlike it, not "blooming "-at this critical moment, we say, a dens ex machina, in the shape of an augmentation of pay, has stepped in, and averted a catastrophe that seemed inevitable. Tliis is, certainly, a step in the right direction, but only a step. The utmost end proposed by Government is to repair the breaches occasioned by their parsimony, and to replace our police force upon its former footing. This is not enough. We have a right to require something more. The force for...

The correspondent of the Argus from Geelong, under date 1st March, states :-" The Bal- larat Escort which arrived yesterday, has again brought down a large quantity of gold-nearly 16,000 ounces. The accounts from this goldfield continue very flattering indeed. Splendid fortunes are being made within a week by some of the most lucky parties.

They not oniy dsfenied successfully Fort St. Nicholas, but captured the fortress of Usurgheti and Souchoun Kaleb. It is added that- the Georgia people are favorable to the Turks. The Russians, in attempting to land 1500 men at Batoum, met with a severe repulse.

i -: ! THE TETRAPTURUS AUSTRALIS (MACLEAY; ! OR, AUSTRALIAN SWORD FISH. ON the 21st ultimo, Mr. William Newton, a fisherman of Port Jackson, presented to the Australian Museum an enormous fish of an entirely new species, belonging to the genus IWrapturus, ¿and the first of the family taken in the Australian waters. It was cap- tured by Mr. Newton, whilst fishing with a hook baited with mackerel, in Broken Bay. It measures-9 feet 2 inches, and its weight, when caught, somewhat exceeded 2 cwt. The colour on the back and fins is of a blueish black, exhibiting iridescent blues and purples in various lights ; while the belly and lower .'portions of the body are silvery white. The snout or sword pro jecting from the upper jaw is 21 feet in length, and of enormous power and hardness. Of course, so formidable a fish is a dangerous enemy to a boat, and instances are known of individuals receiving their death wound by being transfixed with its sword. Much credit is due to Mi*.

From the Argus of the 2nd March we extract the following sum- mary of the proceedings in the Council on the 1st instant, relating to the Elective Franchise Extension Bill, and to the Education Bill : " Mr. Fawkner proposed that the franchise should be conferred on di'gers taking out semi-annual licenses, on the ground that none did take annual licenses, and that those who obtained the franchise by semi-annual licenses would keep their privilege by taking out those licenses consecutively. The proposition, however, was opposed by the Colonial Secretary, who considered that the taking out of an annual license would only entail an expense of 3s. 6d. upon the digger, as interest for the advance of the sum re- quired. Mr. O'shannassy observed that while the Bill proposed to extend the franchise, it did not pronose to increase the number of members. The Attorney-Gen...

He was ours during the best part of his life, and death has now made him ours for ever. We are sure, therefore, that the Concert on Monday would be well attended, even though the^sole induce- ment offered were the opportunity of performing an act, not of charity, but of grateful acknowledgment of benefits received. We rejoice to say, however, that there are other enticements, and that, without any reference to its object, the programme of the enter- tainment is sufficiently attractive to ensure the attendance of x crowded asse...
