TO THE ELECTORS Ol' TH.li DISXKIUX ui< MANEROO. GENTLEMEN,-Encouraged by assurances of support from 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 » andas 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 the Legislative Council, should you do me tb.e 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 your 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...

CENTRAL GRIMINAL COURT. Thursday. (Before Sir Alfred Stephen, Chief Justice). MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 April 1854

CENTRAL GRIMINAL COURT. Thursday. (Before Sir Alfred Stephen, Chief Justice^ MURDEH. ¡ JosephRoberts was indicted for having, at Waverly, on the 14th January last, wilfully murdered one John Davis, i The prisoner, an intelligent and mild-looking youth, about 17 I years of age, in a firm voice, and with a cairn and composed man- ner, pleaded not guilty. The prosecution was conducted by the Attorney-General, and the defence by Mr. Darvall. Most of the evidence ¿»iven is identical with that previously given at the inquest, and has already appeared in our columns. The only new evidenee elicited was thilt furnished by John Hat- ton, shopkeeper, on the South Head Road, James Hubbard, grocer. South Head Road, and Mr. ."William Thurlow, attorney for tlic prisoner. The point which the testimony of the two first wit- nesses went to establish was, that the deceased had stated his inten- tion of sending the prisoner, with the black mare, to the diggings, at nine o'clock, on the evening of tlie ...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. THE TURON. (From our own Correspondent) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 April 1854

MINING INTELLIGENCE. THE TURON. (From our own Correspondent) The rush from these diggings to Tambaroora having completfely subsided, those of our diggers who were contented to remain, are becoming more settled, and, as a natural consequence, more gold is being procured, business is gradually increasing, so that we ma; again entertain hopes of the "Western Gold Fields rising into im. portance, notwithstanding our rather jealous-friends of the Mel- bourne Argus, who look upon i,uch an idea as bordering on the ri- diculous. The statement which appeared in the Bathurst Free Press, relative to the discovery at Green Wattle Flat of a nugget weigh- ing 14 lbs., is incorrect ; no such nugget has ever been found. The report was put in circulation, in faet, and communicated to your contemporary by a Boniface of the locality, and the motives which actuated him can be easily understood from the nature of his occupation. I am sorry to say this despicable practice is fre- quently resorted to by s...

PRESENTATION PLATE TO R. A. HUNT, ESQ., OF THE GENERAL POST OFFICE DEPARTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 April 1854

PRE S EN TAT ION PLATE TO ll, A. HUNT, ESQ., OF THE GENERAL POST OFFICE DEPARTMENT. The gentleman whose name heads this article having been for the lengthened period of twenty-one years in the General Post Office, and purposing to proceed to Europe for a short time, the clerks in the same department, anxious to testily their great esteem for Mr. Hunt on his departure, presented him with a costly ser Tice of plate, an illustration of which we this day present to our leaders. Mr. Hunt's name has been long allied with the postal affairs of this colony. He was the originator of the uniform two-penny postage rate which was eventually adopted hy the Government, although the Executive were disposed at first to adopt a three- penny or fourpenny rate. And when the means of communica- tion ¿rom kence to England some years ago were so unfrequent, the Mercantile Community had often to thank Mr. Hunt, who uniformly on the departure of a mail, kept the Post Office window open till 8 o'clock, and ...

YACHT RACE, BETWEEN THE FROLIC AND PRESTO. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 April 1854

" YACHT RACE, BETWEEN THE FROLIC'AND PRESTO. The race between the Frolic and Presto for fifty pounds a side came oft'on Saturday last, and created considerable interest. The sailing qualities of thc Frolic are well known to the public, but the Presto being1 a new beat, having only very recently arrived from England, the betting seemed to be in favour of the Frolic. The course Was from the buoy ofF Fort Macquarie, round the Sow and Pigs, back round Pinchgut, then round the Sow and Pigs, and back to the starting pince. At ten minutes past twelve o'clock the yachts got away with a very light wind from the westward, and an fbb tide, which took them below Pinchgut ; here they were very close together. A nice breeze now sprung up from the S. E., in- creasing considerably, which enabled both boats to get well away. The Presto, however, took the lead and rounded the Sow and Pigs for the first time at 5h minutes past one o'clock. The Frolic rounded at 8 minutes past one. The Presto retained ...

DONE BROWN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 April 1854

SCENE IN THE BLUE MOUNTAINS. DONE BROWN. I BY CAPTAIN RAFTER. Soon after peace had begun to shed lier benign influence over the European world, and the British lion reposed in glorious ease | after the, toils pf a thousand battles, the principal cities of the em- pire-especially Loudon, Dublin, and" Edinburgh-swarmed with military men of all ranks, either retired from the service, or taking their piacere on leave ol' absence. G reat numbers of these exhibited incomestible proofs of hard service, in thc loss of legs, arms, or ' eyes, left on the different battle fields which have crowned our annals with such imperishable glory ;; for it must be confessed that here and there these honourable souvenirs were counterfeited by persons unconnected with the army, to gratify some childish vanity, or to serve some base and dishonest purpose. Dublin was at that time, comparatively speaking, a flourishing city ; for the Union was only fifteen years old, and its peculiar j advantages had not yet...

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 8 April 1854

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. ROYAL VICTORIA THEATRE.-It is too much thc custom of the Australian press to lavish mdiecrimiuate praise on all public per- formers who demand it with sufficient boldness. To judge from the laudations showered upon Mr. and Mrs. Stark, the one should be a second Kenible, and the other a second Siddons ; but we will frankly say that if, under such influences, we had formed any such judgment, we should have found, in the performance of Monday night, some reasons for modifying our opinion. It is true that Mr. and Mrs. Stark have here, from circumstances beyond their con- trol, a certain disadvantage to contend with, for the very first word which either of them utters prepossesses unfavourably an English audience. They have the.peculiar Yankee nasal twang, to which it requires some-time for an English ear to become reconciled. This we suppose they .have in common with all Americans, but they possess also a curious mode of pronunciation which, as we cannot think it to b...

Teetotalism is, no doubt, a very good thing. for those who require it--and so is a strait-waistcoat.
