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

- ; ,. ! , VICTORIA, ; On the 14th instant, the Lieutenant Governor sent down, a message to the Legislative Council, with a despatch on the Squat- ting question from the.Duke of Newcastle. The New Constitution Bill waa recommitted, and the Postage Bill read a second time. The Argus says :-" A letter to a Melbourne Merchant contains the following amusing reference to our new Governor : ' My old commodore goes out to, your country as Governor. I sailed with him for nearly three years, but of course can pass no opiniou as to his fitness for his new position. He is a very clever man, highly accomplished, and a sort of man that ignores the words " cannot" or "impossible," But I take it that he goes to one of the most unpleasant governorships under the Crown. If he rides the colo- nists with the same kind of chifney bit he did us, there will be a shindy. He is a capital business man." In the Council, on the 10th instant, a petition from the Jews of Geelong against the religious grant clau...

ENGLAND'S TRUE POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 25 March 1854

ENGLAND'S TRUE POLICY. THAT a general European war is now inevitable seems to be the opinion of every one both here and at home. It ran no longer be staved off by the whimpering deprecation of a cowardly diplomacy, nor will the people of England iufler it to be bought off at the cost of the national honor and influence. The conduct of Lord Aberdeen is almost universally condemned; and that minister has forfeited his character, and in all probability his place, in order to avert a war which, in the opinion of many, his own feeble- ness and irresolution mainly contributed to induce. We, certainly, think that, by a decisive policy in the first in- stance, the war might have been postponed ; but that it < ould, by any agency short of a miracle, have been per- manently prevented, we do not believe. We are convinced «hat England and Russia must sooner or later have come into hostile collision, and have fought it fairly out. Our mode, therefore, of viewing the present state of a...

KATE, ON A THREE—LEGGED STOOL. CHAPTER V. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 25 March 1854

KATE, ON A THREE-LEGGED STOOL. j ( Continued from our lott.) ! CHAPTER V. A few diiy* passed, and Mary was once more in London, work- ing cheerfully, and looking forward to the happy time-not far distant she hoped-when she should be re-united to all she loved. The first step towards making things more comfortable for her jm rcnts, was the receipt of her quarter's wages. The dav arrived when she held them in her hands : how pleased and happy she felt in asking for an hour or two, to obtain a money order, and send home a portion. With a light step she walked on, stopping oc- casionally to look at many things she would purchase for her poor detr mother's comfort, could she but afford it. She reached the Post Office at last, and entered the Money Order Department. " An order for a pound, if you please sir 1" she meekly said ; and saying so, put her hand in her pocket. Her cheek gTew suddenly | pale, then flushed, as the clerk asked, " to whom .' and from j whom?" Her movement became mor...

BRITISH SCORN OF OPPRESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 25 March 1854

BRITISH SCORN OF OPPRESSION. The impatience which is beginning to manifest itself in some quarters, against the temperate language and attitude of the Government is, in reality, the natural outbreak of that force and spirit which it is the duty of the Government to guide to victory. If the county were not ea-er, were not impa'.ient, where would be the energy which has carried it triumphantly through a thousand fights, and may now have to sustain another protracted trial ? It must pervade all ranks, it must command all parties it must erive !o the votes of Parliament the force of a unanimon* determination. In the month of July or the month of September the public feeling and conviction of thc country had by no means reached that point. The demonstration was not complete : the case of imperious necessity was not yet made out. But, if the signal of war meets the coming year, no doubt can be entertained that the British scorn of oppression and injustice, the long smothered hatred of Rus...

After the conclu- sion of the music, Mr. O'Donohoe was escorted (or rather led) to tile rostrum by James J. Lawn, Esq., president of the Irish Immigrant and Benevolent Society, another friend holding Mr. O'D. up by the other arm. The exile is a stout man, about five feet eight inches in height, i f uncouth visage, with a shock of fiery hair. i " Mr. Lawn introduced him to the audience as 'P.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 25 March 1854

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The Register of the 2nd instant, says :-" "We understand that the Executive Government have resolved to recommend to the Legislature to enact that a minimum divisible profit shall be guaranteed to railway companies establishing lines between Ade- laide and the Burra ; the Burra and Port Wakefield ; Adelaide and Wellington on the Murray ; Adelaide, Wellington, and Port Elliott ; Adelaide aud Glenelg ; Adelaide and Glen Osmond ; and by advertisement in the local papers seek for the services of a Chief Surveyor and Engineer, to ascertain the best levels between the above points.

SUPREME COURT. Thursday. (Before Mr. Justice Dickinson, and a Jury of four.) WILKIE v. MACARTHUR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 25 March 1854

SUPREME COURT. ": Thursday. (Before Mr. Justice Dickinson, and a Jury of four.) WILKIE ». MACARTHUR. This was an action for libel. The declaration was founded OB a letter from the defendant toa Mrs. Keck, insinuating, as .waa contended, that the wife of her son had, by the aid and contrivance of the plaintiff, quitted her husband's home, and gone to live at the plaintiffs house-that is, that some improper intimacy existed between Mrs. Keck, junior, and the plaintiff. The defendant pleaded the general issue. Messrs. Darvall and Lutwyche appeared for the plaintiff, and . Messrs. Broadhurst and Meymott for the defendant. From the evidence it appeared that the younger Mrs. Keck had - been removed by her husband, since dead, from the plaintiffs sta- tion of Duandine, in the Moreton Bay district, and had gone to 'reside with her husband in a wool shed, at Warra Warra, the de- fendant's station.

THE ILLUSRATED SYDNEY NEWS. SATURDAY, MARCH 25, 1854. THE COMMISSIONERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 25 March 1854

SATURDAY, MARCH 25, 1854. THE COMMISSIONERS. As the city Commissioners have now been in office for nearly three months, our readers may he interested by a brief exposition of what they have done and what they are doing. First in order and in importance comes the subject of sewerage. Thank Heaven ! we are not, like the metropolis of a sister colony, altogether without any attempt at drainage-altogether destitute of what is so indispensable to health, comfort, and decency. Thank Heaven 1 we repeat, we are in this respect, as in most others, infi- nitely superior to the groveling gold-grubbers of Melbourne. The existing system of sewerage, however, although much better than nothing, has been long felt and admitted to he imperfect and de- fective j and for the purpose of remodelling and improving, or, if desirable, superseding that system, the present Board was perhaps more than for any other object appointed. Of the great importance of this matter we are happy to'say that the Commissio...

CHAPTER VI. Long «md severe was Mary's struggle between love and duty. She felt, in marrying Hodge, she must sacrifice her parents marry, and know them paupers : that, she never could do ; as his wife, she could not support them. She fretted and wept, and for days went like a spirit from another world, about that large house. Hodge had disappointed her-she felt, with all his love, he could not enter into her feelings for her parents : 'twas selfishness all. A week the letters remained unanswered.

TASMANIA. Sergeant James Allan, of the 99th regiment, who commanded the guard on board the prison ship Lady Franklin, was tried by court-martial at Hobart Town. The result of the trial would not be known before its confirmation by the Commander-in-Chief. The press is engaired in discussing the subject of intemperance. There is a general feeling against the Mi ine Liquor Law. The Argus has the following paragraph :-" The newspapers from this colony, which reach to the 11th instant, contain nothing of sufficient interest to induce us, in the present crowded state, of our columns, to give lengthened extracts. "We, however, record the pleasing fact that at the late Sitting of the Supreme Court, Mr. Justice Horne announced there was nothing for him to do, and that he was entitled to a pair of white gloves from the Sheriff. This was the first Maiden Session in Van Diemen's Land."

ORIGINAL POETRY. SONG.-THE WINDS. "What are the «oft winda narin? As they breathe through the balmy grove With the maid's long ringlets playing ? Do they whisper a tale of love ? Do they tell her in tones of gladness That he will be true alway ? Or is it a tale of sadness ; > What do the sweet winds say ! j What are the loud winds saying ; As they shake all the tree-tops hiffh, '? Gray clouds through the cold air straying ; Half hiding the bright blue »ky ? Is it a voice of pleasure That maketh those boughs to sway, i Ilitch dancing in mystic measure What do the loud winds say ?

CORRESPONDENCE. HORSE RAILWAYS. (To the Editor of "The Illustrated Sydney News.") [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 25 March 1854

; CORRESPONDENCE. . HORSE RAILWAYS. (To the Editor of "Thc Illustrated Sydney News.") SIR, - Public attention having been drawn to a horse railway, said to be the patented invention of a mercantile firm in England,   and about to be carried out in Van Dieman's Land, it is but fair to let the public know what has been done in this direction long ago by myself and others, to enable them to judge whether any   patent right or exclusive property can possibly exist in this kind of invention. My patent is dated in 1838, and is now expired, as I found it futile to bring it forward single handed, without any support from the railway interest in England. The infatuation connected with the exclusive employment of the steam locomotive rendered all my efforts hopeless. I clearly foresaw, however, that a time would come, when this infatuation would cease, and that the enormous cost of steam locomotion would at last touch the pockets of railway proprietors and directors....
