UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 18 March 1854

- . UNITED STATES. A New York paper (the Enquirer) of the 12th December, sup- plies the following : The Mayor of New Orleans has issued a declaration that the health of the City was never better, and that it is perfectly safe for visitors. A vessel arrived in New York on the 26th of November, direct from Australia, with 400,000 dollars in gold dust. The escaped exile from Van Diemen's Land, John Mitchell, had¡ announced that, in conjunction with Mr. T. F. Meagher, he would issue the first number of a new weekly newspaper on th e 31 st December. A dreadful calamity occurred at mid-day on Saturday, December 10. The extensive printing office bf Messrs. Harper, occupying twelve buildings, were ubserved to be on fire just after the workmen had returned from dinner, and in less than three hours were a mass of ruins, together with, the Walborn-house boarding establishment, the Franklin-square hotel, and two oilier buildings. The lowest estimate of the loss is one million two hundred thousa...

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 18 March 1854

.TASMANIA. ..; Heavy rains, with very high winds, had caused considerable da- mages and loss of life in Hobart Town, and injury to the shipping" lying in the harbour. Terrific Storm Floods and Loss of Life. - For the last two days our city has been visited with one of the most terrific storms at- tended with loss of life, that has been known for a quarter of a cen- tury. The rain commenced about three o'clock on Sunday morn- ing, and continued incessantly up to the time of our going to press last evening ; the Town Creek rose some eight feet above its usual height, and swept all before it. Mills, houses, barns, stables, bridges, and piggeries might be seen floating down to the sea, piece by piece, and in fact everything that came within reach of this de- vastating element. Scandrick's, Phillip's, and Coleman's store, at the back of Liverpool-street, together with the bridge at Patter- son's brewery, Mr. Nicholas's stables, and many other premises, were washed away. The greater part ...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 18 March 1854

i VICTORIA. . In the Legislative Council, on the 8th instant, a message was received from the Lieutenant-Governor, recommending that a sum of £3,000 be placed on the Estimates, for the benefitof the widow of the late Collector of Customs (Mr. Cassells.) The charge of arson against William Jay Smith, John Patter- son, and Florence Harrington, was gone into hythe Williams Town bench on the 5th March. The prisoners were charged with setting fire to the steamer West Wind, on the 27th February, as she was lying in Hobson's Bay, laid up. Smith was;formerly the owner of the vessel, but had mortgaged her for a heavy amount, and it appeared that he had ceased to hold any interest in her as owner, but he still slept on board, and had accompanied the vessel in her latest passages to South Australia and back. Patterson and Harrington were discharged at the close of the evidence so far taken, and .were then examined as witnesses for the prosecution against Smith. The evidence against him was ent...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 18 March 1854

MINING INTELLIGENCE. THE TURON.-The Uncle Tom diggings, are now the point of attraction : nearly all our miners are there, while, as a necessary consequence, much ground is being well turned over, and fresh auriferous spots are daily discovered within a few miles of that locality. On Wednesday last, near Gaffney's public-house, on the Bathurst road, a nugget was laid bare, weighing 15 odd ounces, accompanied by several more weighing from one to seven ounces: while many who have bottomed were obtaining excellent prospects, in fact, "doing a good stroke," as it is termed in digging phraseology. I have no doubt that, as soon as this becomes known on the surrounding gold fields, another rush will take place in our favour : for while the Tambaroora is so much blazoned forth, hundreds are daily leaving unable to obtain water with which to carry on operations, or from a series of bad luck in sinking. From what I can learn, the last mentioned place approaches more near in its characteristic...

THE SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENTS IN MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 18 March 1854

THE. SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENTS IN" MELBOURNE., i THE mortality in Melbourne has recently been very great -but on whom has it chiefly fallen ? A casual visitor . must be amazed at the number of funerals that throng the streets-but of what size are most of the coffins ? The coffins are not those of full-grown men and women, nor from the adult class has the great majority of victims been selected. It is the children, the little children that are being borne so thickly to the grave, and a strong man might carry under each arm half-a-dozen of the coffins. witli their contents. In what city could such havoc of the very young and the wholly helpless take place without exciting an universal cry of agony like that which burst from the Egyptians at the loss of their first born-with- out exciting general horror and alarm, and compelling anxious enquiry into the causes of the fatality, together with the most earnest and persevering endeavours to re- move them ? In no one city, we are willing f...

FATE, ON A THREE-LEGGED STOOL. (Continued from our last.) CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 18 March 1854

' FATE, ON A THREE-LEGGED STOOL. ; I (Continued from our last.) I CHAPTER III. ; . MONTHS crept on, and slowly enough to the saddened,ghi, who sat at work in a room ¡¡on the third story of a mansion in Dover street. The Wilmots were only in town for a short period, prioi . to returning to their seat in Yorkshire. The season was over, and the heat of a genial September had driven all who could leave town to the sea-side or country. * Mary Dalton sat at the window, her head bent over her work, and the busy thoughts working harder than the quick fingers. She is no longer the handsome country girl who used to milk " Black Madge" ; some might admire her more, but the paleness of her cheek and the thinness of her figure, could never equal the rosy brightness and rounded beauty she once possessed. There she sat, dreaming of home and Hodge, and conjuring around her those fond memories, so dear when we hope to see them realities once more ! Mary had not failed to attract the notice of more t...

We are h?ppy at last to have it in our power to say, that we have found amongst us, an enterprising individual, in the person of Mr. J.F. Teasdell, of the White Horse Cellar, who is determined that the , gentlemen of Sydney and other districts, who visit Parramatta, ?hall hot be deprived of a favourite recreation-which will be more 'appreciated here than in the great metropolis, by having lately erected a spacious and comfortable billiard room, 36 feet by 18 feet, in* which he has placed a superior billiard table, lately importe...
