CHEAP DIET. PART III. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 October 1853

CHEAP DIET. ; ^ I'..'. . ? PART III. , UL L'Y six months had elapsed since our visit to Loveley. Matters there continued much in the same state ; and Miss Wynn and Geof- frey still occupied the same relative positions. The former, however, was beginning to tire of an amusement which had now lost its novelty. " It is necessary," *thoiwht she, "to ter- minate this absurd af- fair ; it is growing stupid. But for the in . conceiveable dulness of this place, Ï should have wearied of it long since. At first it was all well enough ¡ but the same thing day after -day-it is really too bad'; Job's patience couldn't stand it. So far . I have carried my point. I have inspired this poor Fennel with a wild passion. I have seen into his thoughts, and I believe there is hardly a feeling of his that has not afforded me diversion. I hold his heart in my hands as a ball to play with. I have studied liini in every character but one. He has talked witli me, he has ^walked with me, he has read with me.: ...

FACETIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 October 1853

FACE TIM. A Doo OUT OF PLACE.-On the evening of a recent Sunday, j as the inhabitants of Ystradganlais, South Wales were crowding to j chapel, tc- hear a somewhat famous itinerant preacher, a huge dog made his way into the building, bolted up the pulpit stairs, and i took possession of the place assigned to the pastor. The unsus ! pecting itinerant walked np to the pulpit in a short time, but as ; sailed with fierce growls, and a row of teeth like an alligator's, he ; was glad to get to the bottom ol' the steps. A secend ventured, j but only elicited some additional growls. A third sage, thinking ; discretion the better part of valour, next ascended to make an ami j cable settlement with Tyke. He did not dispute the dog's right ; of possession, but endeavoured to charm bini from his elevated po , sition with a piece of candle. At this Tyke waxed more furious than ever, deeming the candle an insult ; and at length the pastor took his place in the small reading-desk, in which he preac...

TOO NATURAL BY HALF. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 October 1853

TOO NATURAL BY HALF. Such was the vivid truthfulness of Kean's acting-so fraught with meaning was every look and gesture, that it often occasioned many curious scenes among the different ladies with whom he acted. We will give one example : During the time when Kean, in the full tide of his success, was starring it in the country, it so happened that a young and newly wedded actress joined the company in which the great actor was performing. She was engaged expressly for juvenile tragedy. The part selected for her debut was Lady Anne, in Richard III. The Richard, Kean, of course-the only Richard since the days of the redoubtable George Frederick Cooke. Mrs. K. (for such was the fair heroine's name) had never appeared with Kean, nor, in fact, had she ever seen him on the stage, and was perfectly electrified with his style of acting-so fervid, so impassioned, so glowing, so truthful. Mrs. K. was young and graceful, and gifted with no ordinary charms-an advantage of which she was by no...

. THE BURNING FOREST. A SKKTCII OK AUSTRALIAN BUSH LIFE. ÏÎA t. F of the weary day's journey was over when the wanderers fhrev down their packs, reclined beneath the shade of a bold jutting rock and'commenced preparations for the afternoon meal. They weri a. fine ¡zroup of men, chiefly new coiners, with a few older inhabi- tants of the bush, who acted as guides throu:h the wild broken tract of country lying between the sea-coast and their destination the public road to one of the gold diggings. " Tom, don't make a lire-it's hot enough now to blister a Sala- mander," exclaimed a younc man, and as he spoke, he ran his linaers through Iiis rich dark locks and yawned. " We must have a pot of tea, lad," replied his companion, and he threw a large lo£ on thc flickering flame. Tlie bivouac in the wild glen was enlivened with many a light- hearted joke and snatch of song. " Put out the fire, Tom," said thc first speaker, an hour later, as he strapped a bundle over his shoulder. " Ha, ha ! y...

OUR PORTRAIT GALLERY. DANIEL EGAN, ESQ. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 October 1853

OUR PORTRAIT GALLERY.     DANIEL EGAN, ESQ. THE third subject n the series in our Portrait Gallery is Daniel Egan, Esq., who, as the present Mayor of the City of Sydney, is also its Chief Magistrate. He is a native of the colony, and held the office of Master Builder of her Majesty's Dockyard, under the successive administrations of Sir Thomas Brisbane, Sir Ralph Dar- ling, and Sir Richard Bourke, during a period of eleven years. Mr. Egan entered on the duties of that important and responsible situation in 1824, and continued the performance of its onerous duties until thc office was abolished. The then Government, as an acknowledgment of the manner in which its various duties had been performed, presented Mr. Egan with a sum equal in amount to two years' salary. The importance and onerosity of the Master- ship of the Dockyard will be at once perceptible, when we state that during the time he filled that office he had seldom fewer than 1,000 individuals eng...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 October 1853

NEWS OF THE WEEK. MURDER AND CANNIBALISM.- On Tuesday last information reached this city, announcing the commission of a murder, we are inclined to think, altogether unparalleled in the annals of any civi- lized people, and attended with circumstances on the part of the murderer, such as have, never before obtained in the commission of the most brutal murders on record. The information possessed is little-for all that is, as yet, known in reference to this deed of un- equalled brutality, we are indebted to the correspondents of the Goulburn Herald and the Empire. The information afforded by the first runs thus :-"Yass, Oct. 12.-An inquest was held this day,   at Kangalera, near Yass, touching the death of a man named Barry, a carpenter by trade. It appeared from evidence that de- ceased and a man, named James Talbot, a shoemaker, resided to- gether at Mr. Bernard's; on Monday last, Talbot took his cutting knife, and stabbed deceased twice in the heart, from the effects ...

THE IVANHOE AND THE MIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

SAILING MATCH BETWEEN THE IVANHOE AND MIDGE. THE IVANHOE AND THE MIDGE. | À race between these two crack yachts was made about a month since for £25 aside, the Ivanhoe beina; backed by her owner, Mr. Hector Martin (who steered her in the struggle), and the Midge by Mr. George Wright. This little event caused no small anxiety and speculation amongst parties to whom each vessel was a favourite. The course was a start from the Market Wharf, round- ing the Floating Light and Sow and Pigs, to the N., returning, and then round Pinchgut, on the north side, and again proceeding to tlie Floating Light and Sow and Pigs, same course, and finish- ing at the Asa Packer, barque, moored off the Market Wharf. The computed distance of the race was about 30 miles. Great anxiety was felt amongst the bettina- community as to the weather. Many thinking that in light weather the little Midge would run away from her more sturdy antagonist. Monday last, the day appointed 'for the race, set in with a stiff ...

SYDNEY HORSE MARKET.—OCTOBER 29. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

SYDNEY HORSE MARKET.-OCTOBER 29. - The week's sales have shewn a demand considerably in excess of the supply. First class horses, of every description, meet a ready sale at good prices. The market has been unusually bare of hacks, for which there is a steady demand. -Well-broken gig and car- riage horses, suitable for immediate tise, are also much wanted. Heavy draught, as usual, realise the outside figures. The prices have been as follows :-For first class draught, £45 to £61 ; ordi- nary ditto, £25 to £36 ; gig and carriage ditto, £27 to £40 ; hackneys, £12 to £35.-S. C. BURT, Auctioneer, Pitt-street. The rain during the past few days prevented any business being transacted in the horse-market ; but the weather having cleared, business has been more brisk, and good horses have obtaiued high, prices, considering the price of fodder. Really good horses are much enquired for, especially hackneys up to weight. Good heavy draught mares are in demand. Unbroken not enquired for unless st...

MELBOURNE. (From our own Correspondent.) Melbourne, 22nd October, 1853. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

MELBOURNE. (From our own Correspondent.) Melbourne, 22nd October, 1853. The great event of the week has been the Grand Masonic'Ball, which was held in the Protestant Hall, Melbourne, on Tuesday last, the 18th instant. It is acknowledged by all who took part in the gaieties of the evening, to have been oiie of the most agreeable entertainments ever given in thc capital of Victoria. Although the building in its daily garb cannot boast either of architectural beauty or sculptured ornament, yet on this occasion it wore a hrillancy and splendour we have seldom seen surpassed, even in the mother country. Great taste was displayed in the decorations, and evi- dently no expense was spared, to render the scene as gay and mag- nificent as possible. The doors were thrown open at 9 p.m., and the rooms were soon filled ; the company having begun to pour in at an early hour. There were above four hundred present. Among the assembled visitors (who included all the élite of Melbourne) we noticed Hi...

It has been purchased by Mr. Francis Cohen, for the sum of £857 9s. 7d. The nuggetweighs 218 oz. 14 dwts., and measures eleven inches in length by six and a half in breadth. This specimen, both from its unequalled magnitude and its rare beauty, will well repay inspection. Mr. Cohen declares that he would not part with it for £ 1,000.

GENERAL POST OFFICE, SYDNEY. DELIVERY OF THE ENGLISH MAIL PER "GREAT BRITAIN," [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

GENERAL POST OFFICE, S YDNEY. DKMVERY OK TUB EN'OMSII MAH- PER " GREAT BRITAIN." WK present our readers this week with a view of the General Post Office, during the delivery of the English mail by the Great Bri- tain, on Tuesday last. The arrival of this Leviathan had been oxinusly looked for ; and the comparatively short run she has made from Liverpool to Melbourne, 6ó days, including 4 days de- tention at St. Vincent, appears to have given universal satisfaction, ! although her comparatively small mail, and the non-arrival of the Vhucira, which left Plymouth on the 5th August, and the steamer Si/dm'}/ on the Sth of that month, carrying the regular mails, have caused thc greatest disappointment to our Melbourne friends and to ourselves. This could easily be seen by the blank locks de- picted in the faces of hundreds who made application for letters and newspapers at the General Post OlHce on Tuesday last We hope thc circumstance referred to will not escape the notice of the British...

LATEST FROM ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

'* LATEST FROM ENGLAND. BY the arrival of the Great Britain, we have English news to the 11th August. The rupture between Russia and Turkey still continues to en- gross the public attention. Various.rumours have been afloat with regard to the peaceful solution of the difficulty, the most sanguine going so far as to assert that the whole matter has been actually settled. These, however, are destitute of any good foundation, and are the mere suggestions of an eager desire that it should be so. The real state of the matter, when the Great Britain left England, can be related in a very few words. The Russian aggression is no longer confined to the mere occupation of the Principalities ; she has gone farther, and assumed with regard to them all the func- tions of an usurped sovereignty. She has coerced the Hospodars into paying to lier the tribute due to the Porte ; and she has pressed ¿the inhabitants of the country into the ranks of her invading anny. The only act of hostility that rem...

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. Mit. COLEMAN JACOB'S CONCERT.-This talented Pianist gave I his farewell Concert, previous to his departure- for India, on Tues- day evening, in the largo room of the Royal Hotel. Owing to the unsettled state of the weather, the attendance was not so large as we anticipated-it being the last time the people of Sydney would have an opportunity of hearing this clever performer. The au- dience, however, was highly fashionable, and embraced the cognos- centi of thc city. Considerable disapprobation was evinced when I the non-arrival of Madame Ferari, and the indisposition of Signor Spagnoletti were announced. As disappointments of this nature have occurred rather frequently of late, we think it would be pre I ferable were om future concert givers to abstain from amiounciivr j tile engagement of artistes when their appearance is in the slightest j ? degree doubtful ; and we are certain that the appearance of a i " star," unheralded in the programme, would detract nothin...

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE BALL-ROOM BELLE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE BALL-ROOM BELLE. Essenc'd foppery is round her, ' Softly flatt'ring while slie sings ; And she scatters smiles around her, . ' . .' , Though she hears unmeaning things.. She has ceas'd ; and her cheek flushes "With the triumph of the night ; - For her song the ball-room hushes, And her beauty lends it light. , Yet, methinks, that face presages A far deeper under-stream Than a coxcomb's science guages, Than herself doth even dream. There is thought upon that forehead, There is soul within that eye ; And I know that she has sorrowed, From that soft, unconscious sigh. Essenc'd foppery is round her, Yet, if only she could meet With the spirit that would sound her Spirit's depths in their retreat, She would answer to his calling, Though from far his voice had roamed, Though she dwelt a palace-hall in, ' ? ' # . . And in cottage he was homed. . To the finder of that fountain . She would yield its purest prime, Though from valley up a mountain , TTïs ns-mrïncr natli mu...

GLEANINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

GLEANINGS. WHEN two friends part, they should lock upi one another's se- crets, and interchange their keys. FACTS are to the mind the same thing as food to the body. On-, the digestion of facts depends the strength and wisdom of the one,, just as vigour and health depend upon the other. The wisest in council, the ablest in debate, and the most agreeable companion in. the commerce of human life, is. that man who has assimilated ia his understanding the greatest number of facts.'*-Burke. It is a hard and nice subject for a man to write of himself, it grates his own heart to say anything of disparagement, and the reader's ears to hear anything of praise from him.-Cowley.. I love to gaze on a breaking: wave-it is the only thing in nar ture which, is beautiful in the moment of its dissolution. The law of God is the telescope through, which conscience looks upon the world of duty. Affliction teacheth a wicked person some time-to* pray ; pros- perity never.-Ben Johnson.
