WINDHU-GOO; OR. "ALIKI JAMIE," KING OF THE ISLE OF PINES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 1 April 1854

WINBHU-GOO ; OR. "ALIICI JAMIE," KING OF THE ISLE OF PINES. a rm_* ._. _ Í» . i . . i " The natives of this island," according to our correspondent's account, " are a hold and warlike tribe, whose manners, and . customs are (or rather were, for they have slightly changed within the last few. years) as barbarous as any.tn die met with in all the wide Pacific. They never move out of doors without being armed cither with a spear (which they throw with wonderful accuracy and force), or a murderous looking club, one blow of which would shiver a man's skull to atoms. But, wild and savage as they are in their nature, they are not altogether proof against the civilizing .' influence of European intercourse. Many of them speak, English,,! and all are anxious to obtain clothing, though they do not lo-jk' upon it as a thing necessary to their comfort, but only as a bit of finery which they are very fond of displaying on Sundays, &c. They keep the Sabbath as a day of rest, not because t...

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AUSTRALIA. SATURDAY, APRIL 1, 1854. DUELLING EXTRAORDINARY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 1 April 1854

: " "SATURDAY," APRIL Ï, 1S5*. DUELLING EXTRAORDINARY. THE absurd and barbarous practice of duelling has, in England, happily- come to an end : it has died, not of laughing, but of being laughed at. At the. present day it is as unpleasant for a man to accept a'challenge, as it was a century ago to refuse one. If the latter conduct then exposed him to contempt, the former conduct now consigns him to ridicule. This is quite proper and natural. In old times a duel was really what it assumed to be-was really a fight. The principals were ? perfectly in earnest, meant business, aud went out with the.positive desire and intention of shooting or pinking each other through tile body. Accordingly, there was then some romance about the thing,-for real danger is always romantic ; and there was no ridicule,-for real danger is never ridiculous. A young lady, even not entirely destitute of common sense, might have felt flattered by the devotion of a lover who, for her dear sake, exposed himself to...

SYDNEY POLICE COURT. Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 1 April 1854

;- 1 ~-~r SYDNEY POLICE COURT: -r I Saturday. There were twelve persons on the Drunkards* List. Of these one man (who, besides money, had about him, when apprehended, a cheque for £200) paid £2 for his liberation ai the watch-house ; the rest were ordered to pay the usual penalty of £1. John Artingstall, whose case had heen remanded for a week in order to afford, him an opportunity of amendment, was again charged by his wife with continued neglect of her'and her four children. Mrs. Arlingstall said that no alteration had taken place in her husband's conduct; that he sat moping at home, without making the least attempt to earn anything, and allowing the entire support of the family to devolve on her unaided exertions. The defendant said, as before,, that he was continually troubled with anticipations of coming evil, which incapacitated him from fol- j lowing his business. The magistrate ordered the defendant to pay ! the sum of £1 weekly for the support of his family, or in default J...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 1 April 1854

MINING INTELLIGENCE. THE TURON.--The insignificant quantity of gold forwarded from the Turon to Sydney per last escort is proof positive that its star is anything hut in the ascendant. On all parts the sad and melancholy tale assails the ear that it will never"revive, and that the long talked of, or rather long looked for reaction, so devoutly wished for, will never take place ; and that if it ever does, it will be at a period remote and distant. However this may be, one thing is certain, that so long as the diggings on the southern side continue lucrative, and new ones continue to be discovered, the population will never fiowhere_-to snppose so would be chimerical in the extreme. Without popiilation, however, our advancement in the developmrnt of the resources of New South Wales will be but slow compared with the unparalleled advancement of Victoria. But we must bide pur time. As yet everything has been in favor of Victoria; hermines have been the richest in the world,-she can boas...

OUR DEFENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 1 April 1854

OUR DEFENCES- ... V . THE recent intelligence from 3£urope:has.caused usrto re- member that close connection with greatness is not with- out its. inconvenience, arid that the lightning, which is at- tracted hy the .vast and towering trunk of the oak, may strike one of the lower branches. We are not considered to be adequately prepared against contingent dangers, and amongst the citizens no small anxiety on that account pre- vails. Apprehensions are entertained that ere long a Russian squadron may be off the Heads .; in which event it is'feared that ere long the heads may be off us. The anassacre at Sinopè is not a comfortable subject of reflec- tion for those whose weakness may invite Russian aggres- sion. In order that the people of Sydney may cease to place themselves in this category, we will consider what rthe danger really is to which we are exposed, and what ¡measures are expedient to be taken for its obviation and defeat. There are two ways in which a seaport may be attacked ...

FACETI[?]. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 1 April 1854

FACE TI/E. When you endeavour to make others laugh, take care that it is with you, not at you. If a proud man makes me keep my distance, the comfort is, he keeps his. at the same time. " When we are told, " says Mr. Doran, in the current number rtf the Gentleman's Magazi?ie, " that Ariádne, abandoned by Theseus, was consoled by Bacchus, nothing more, I think, is meant, than that the lady dried her tears and took to drinking. WA well-known Leicester alderman, now dead, on being urgently pressed to accept the civic office, replied, "Well, if I mun, I mun, there's no eternity,"-which, being interpreted into radical English, means," Well, if I must, I must, there's no alternative." Kai:THE ENGLISHMAN'S CASTLE.-"Tie Englishman's House (says the Proverb) is his Castle ;" and so it is, but then it is a cas- tle which is subject to many attacks (such as the House Tax, Poor Tax, &c, &c.,) and which requires for its defence no end of shot.

CHATTER VIII. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 1 April 1854

CHATTER VIII. ; ONE morning, about a fortnight after the conversation related in the last chapter, Mr. Woods stood behind his counter, looking happy and contented. He felt that Mary was becoming daily more . kind "in. ber manner. His affection and attention to all her wishe* had not quite fallen on barren ground. On this morning he had returned to his shop from their cottage unusually happy. . It was just twelve o'clock. A cab' stopped at the door, and out of it stepped Mary, paler than he had' ever seen her before. There was a wildness in her look andjn anner most unusual! With a hurried step she traversed the shop, and ent'ered: the back parlour. . "John !" she whispered. She could say no more but held towards him an open letter: "Woods sat beside lier, and, casting his eye over thc content's, hischeekj too, grew paler. "You must go, Kary, dear!"' he said, placing his arm about her. " I cannot reproach myself! I did all for" the best. Poor fellow ! But you. know he was ill and una...

FATE, ON A THREE-LEGGED STOOL. CHAPTER VII. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 1 April 1854

? PATE, ON A THREE-LEGGED STOOL. (Continued from our last.) CHAPTER VII. MONTHS passed on, and the spring, was gladdening again-but not all hearts. Mary's self-sacrifice had not been in. vain-her pa- rents once more had a roof of their own to shelter them ; all was done that could be to prevent old Dalton continuing his drunken habits ; but still ïie obtained spirits in various ways. Mary had written to him, pointing out all she had done to make him com- fortable, and imploring Rim to abstain from that drink which had been the cause of so much misery. He promised ; but a drunk- ard's promise is seldom kept. As yet she had not courage-to visit Devonshire ; she knew Hodge, after a long illness, had gone as keeper to Chudleigh, on some of Squire Selby's property there more she knew not. She had indeed kept her word to Woods, -she was a good and faithful wife; but who might know in Mary Woods, placid, but smiling, the rosy Mary Dalton who milked Black Madge ? None. lt was a fine April m...

Her Majesty's ship Calliope arrived in the Bay on Monday after- noon last, and having anchored at Moreton Island for the night, crossed to the mouth of the river next day. His Excellency the Governor-General, accompanied by his Private Secretary, Mr. George Fitz Roy, and Captain Gennys, of the Calliope, arrived at Newstead, the residence of Captain Wickham, Government Resi- dent at Moreton Bay, on Wednesday afternoon. It having been announced that his Excellency would make his public entry into the town of Brisbane on the following day, preparations were made to receive him in a manner consistent with the respect due to his high office, and in such a way as to dispel at once any mistaken notions respecting this district and its inhabitants. On all hands the utmost eagerness and activity were displayed, and the desire to do honour to the occasi...

I SATURDAY, APRIL 8, 1854. ~~ I " YANKEE HUMOUR AND UNCLE SAM'S FUN." THERE is a book published under the above title which we nave I never read, and which, if its contents are practically illustrated by a late occurrence, we have no wish ever to read. We allude to thc extremely pleasant, witty, and gentlemanly hoax recently perpe- trated on the Sydney Morning Herald by the Master of the Golden Agc, who is also, we believe, a Captain in the United States' Navy, Our readers are aware that the deception consisted in a paragraph, handed by the Purser of the Golden. Age to the shipping reporter of the Herald, stating that the Croesus had arrived at Melbourne, and that France and England had declared war against Russia and destroyed the Russian fleet,-with various other particulars, more in detail, almost as interesting, and quite as false. The publication of such a statement on the'morning of Saturday last created considerable excitement, and several persons, we are told, believing in i...

THE ANGLER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 April 1854

THE ANGLER. This very remarkable looking fish was taken a few days since in Port Jackson, ami presented to the Australian Museum by I.D. Nichols, Esq. It belongs to a small and singular group of fishes which Cuvier has designated Pectorales Pèdiculèes, from the pecu- liar conformation of the pectoral fins, by winch the creature is en- abled to creep about on the rocks, and along the sandy bottom of the sea, like a small quadruped. The Angler is a voracious glut- ton, and has recourse to art to, satisfy its appetite. Nature has provided this fish willi a slender elongated appendage immediately above the mouth, which it moves in various directions by way of attraction as a bait : the little fishes approaching either to examine it through curiosity or to seize it as food, immediately become the prey of the cunning and remorseless "Angler." Numerous are tue writers who have borne their testimony to this singular habit of this group of fishes, and extolled it by raising the intellectual ...
