TO THE ELECTORS OF THE DISTRICT OF MANEROO. " I f^i ÈNTLEMEN,-Encouraged by assurances of support from xjf% several influential electors in your district, I am induced to announce myself a candidate to fill the vacancy caused by the re- signation of Mr. Jeffreys, your late highly esteemed representative , and as there appears little, if any, probability, that a resident elector will offer himself, I beg respectfully to solicit your suffrages. Having parted with, my interest in the ¡Sydney Morning Herald, and being consequently entirely released from every occupation which might interfere with the engagements of a member of tba Legislative Council, should you do me the honour to elect me, I am prepared to devote the leisure which is thus at my disposal to the faithful performance of the duties of yovir representative. Upon an occasion like the present, it will, probably, be expected of me that I should state my views, though briefly, upon the most prominent matters of public interest...

THE ORNITHORHYNCHUS PARADOXUS, OR WATER MOLE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 1 April 1854
THE ORNITHORH YNCHUS PARADOXUS/OR WATER MOLE. Ihis animal, so remarkable m its iorm and general, appearance, is about 20 inches in length. The body tapers at both extremities, and is moreover ol'a somewhat depressed form-the head is small, but the facial portion is greatly developed, and from its peculiar form has often been compared to the bill of a duck. This bill is about one-third longer than broad, nat, and broader in front than behind: it is covered by a thick snin, which in dried specimens, resembles leather-with this bill these animals are, like ducks, constantly grubbing in the mud in search of food. The only teeth it possesses are four molars, two on each side of either jaw ; they consist of a horn-like substance, and are situated far back in the head. The eyes are 'very small, and the whole body is covered with a soft, velvety, and very dense fur-the toes are webbed, and are furnished with sharp claws. The general color of the water mole is a deep brown ; the under parts ...

IMPORTANT TO ADVERTISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 1 April 1854
IMPORTANT TO ADVERTISERS.

Every advertisement is well displayed ; and as the Illustrated Sydney News has now a circulation approaching to 3000 copies weekly, in Town and Country, and in the adjacent colonies of Vic- toria, South Australia, Van Diemen's Land and New Zealand, it manifestly offers a very desirable medium of communication to ad- vertisers. Eight lines and under--per line - - - 6d. Every additional line - - - - - - 2d. NOTICE.-The Publishing Office of thc Illustrated Sydney News has been removed from 58, York-street, to 490i, George-street, where all communications are henceforth requested to be addressed.

VEGETABLE CURIOSITIES: LORD HOWE'S ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 1 April 1854
VEGETABLE CURIOSITIES : LORD HOWE'S ISLAND. We tilia week present our readers with illustrations of the Pan- danus and the Banyan Trees of Loid Howe's Island, from original sketches kindly placed at our disposal hy Lieutenant J. Glen Wilson, II. M. S. Herald. We append the following accurate de- scription of these singular growths:- rT ,, ? --Tue 'ranuanus XTOQ ot Lord Howe's Island has a very^ pecu- liar appearance. The stem, instead of tapering' upward as in other trees, tapers downwards, and frequently comes to a point without reaching the ground, as it is entirely supported by its long roots, ,which descend from the trunk like inverted hranches ; at a dis- tance those root9 look like so many artificial props placed round the tree for its support. The branches spring awkwardly from the trunk, and each branch terminâtes in a bundle or tuft of leaves, in the centre of which the seed is produced. The fruit or seed might be taken at first sight for a huge pine apple, but it is a mass...
ORIGINAL POETRY. THE MORNING WALK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 1 April 1854
ORIGINAL POETRY. . THE MORNING WALK. In the morning early, Ere the dew-drops pearly; Whose pride each flower reveals; Are ravish'd by the clutching O'that fiery thief whose touching Doth ruin what he steals : When the earth seems younger,. . And no vain' world-monger The sacred hour profanes, But worn by cares all weary, . And pleasures full as dreary, Lies in lethargic chains : Then with my fair lover Through the flowers, thro' clover . Meadows,-where bees song-bright The sweet thoughts of the blossoms - . ? ; Are plucking from their bosoms, Dream-hoarded during night, . . ' . Pond I am of straying, ", ' Kissing now, now playing '.With the fine tressed gold - That falls adown her neck, and , More dear, by me- is reckon'd ' ; Than aught that's bought and soldi - Or around her slender Waist I slip the tender . , Glose circle of my arm ; .Then, haply, she dissembles, r v. And slaps my cheek which trembles; .' V And thrills to-such'sweet harm. Sure,'tis pa3t denying For such airy toyin...
HORSE MARKET.—MARCH 31, 1854. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 1 April 1854
i HORSE MARKET.-MARCH 31, 1854.' Mr. George Smith reports that the prices F,f all description of Horse Stock have materially diminished, except very heavy draught horses, which if really staunch to the colar, realize great prices, the supply not filling one third the demand. First-rate carriage and gig horses bring rcmuneratiag prices. Handsome town cobs much sought for. Light and unbroken stock not wanted, owing no doubt to the high- price of forage. Mares for New Zealand will sell readily for another week till the vessels now laid on are full. KANOKíG ROCK..-A number of men have set in at the lower part of Oakanville, which has not as yet been worked, on account of the large body of water persons mining here have to contend with. 'We fear the wet weather will be a drawback to this locality i being successfully worked. Parties mining on Madgwick's Ridge are still doing remarkably well. Gore's party took out thirty ounces of gold during the week; the party next to them took ..put tw...
