From the evi- dence of the child's father, and a man in his employ, it appeared that Hamilton, (the father.) in clearing a space round his dwelling,' had set the timber on fire in several places, and that the child, un- observed, had approached one oí them too closely, when her clothesv(took fire, burning lier lower limbs and back in a shocking manner ; from the effects of which she lingered from that time (Tuesday) .until the Thursday evening following, when death' relieved the little sufferer from her torments.

SIR GEORGE GREY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1854

"SIR GEORGE GREY. I The LylllctonTimcs of the 11th March gives the following cha- racter of Sir George Grey, as a Governor : " The character of Sir George Grey's Government was necessarily the reflection of his own mind ; for he was the Government in himself. The only quality approaching to statesmanship capable of being discerned in it, is Secretness. This quality Sir George Grey possessed in a remarkable degree. His powers of dissimu- lation have been rarely equalled ; his practice of it became habitual ; all his wisdom lay in concealment, and his Government was a plot. Distrusting and distrusted, he would have been a- tyrant but for want of power. Shaping his whole policy as nearly as . possible to that end, he roused against him the spirit of English ; men, and made the colony his enemy. Then began a miserable state of things. Popular animosity, unable to find legitimate veut, grew into faction ; and so, as isjalways the case, wrong begat wrong. His political assailants attacked...

A PICTURE FROM THE SCENE OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1854

A PICTURE FROM THE SCENE OF WAR. Routchuck is a large town in Bulgaria, of some 30,000 inhabitants, situated on a promontory advancing into the Danube.. From the roofs of its houses a splendid view may be obtained over the vast winding river, which is sufficiently deep to carry merchantmen of large size. An immense number of vessels are constantly anchored along the quays; From the distance, the town has a magnifi- cent appearance ; but, as usual, the streets are narrow, dirty, and dismal. The lower part of the houses, as is the case everywhere in Turkey, are without windows. The shops are, generally, well supplied with merchandise. Travellers bound for Constantinople hire horses at this place, and put themselves, as we have said, under the guidance of a Tartar. The distance to Schumlais reckoned generally twenty-two hours. The road is picturesque, and for some time after starting, the Danube remains in sight. Between Siniouscha and Tomlak it is descried, however, for the last time,...

ARCHBISHOP POLDING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1854

ARCHBISHOP. FOLDING. -- ^ JOHN BEDE FOLDING was born:.at Liverpool, in the year! 1794, being!descended from a respectable German family whose name was originally Polten. Having become ah orphan in early youth, his education was undertaken by¡' his maternal , uncle and?? guardian, the Very Reverend Dr.1 . Brewer, President of .the -English Benedictines. Th ó . future Archbishop having evinced an early inclination for ecclesiastical pursuits, it was considered desirable that he should be placed under the tuition of that order, : and he . was, accordingly, in 1807, removed to Acton' Burnal, the seat of Sir'Edward Smyth, where the scattered members of the English Benedictine College of Douay had found an asylum. In this retreat, he successfully continued his studies ; and, in the year 1811, at the early age of seven- teen, was admitted into the order. In 181'9, Mr.,Pökling was ordained Priest by Bishop Poynter, and was employed in superintending the studies of the younger members of. . ...

MUSICAL PUBLICATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1854

MUSICAL PUBLICATIONS. We;have received a copy of the Australian Presentation Alburn,^ published by Messrs. Wookot and Clarke, 'of-" George-street. This work, at first sight, arrests-:the at- tention by the very elegant manner, in which it is got up. and bound, and, upon further examination, one finds that its contents are not unworthy of-its -handsome exterior. The first composition is a deservedly -popular song - " Shells of Ocean "-which is frontispieced by a coloured lithograph of very tasteful execution. "We have then the "Australian Bird Waltz," composed by Mr. Frederick Elland, and based upon the peculiar notes of a little grey '.bird which the aborigines; of South Australia call; the " Mingo." We come next to a pretty polka, contributed by Mr. Packer, and the remainder of the Album consists of a happy selection from the compositions of Jullien and d'Albert. The citizens of Sydney may really be proud of this publication, which would not disgrace Bond-street itself, and is equa...

THE KOALA; OR, NATIVE BEAR. (Phascolaretos fuscus.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1854

THE KOALA; OR, NATIVE BEAR. '. ., . /Phascoiaretosfusons.) The Koala commonly called the Native Bear, or "Monkey" by the ^Colonists,1 is one of tlie most singular of our Marsupiaíanimals 'and'bears a considerable resemblance to the Sloth. It climbs trees and feeding on the buds and leaves, and is generally . met with in the large forests in the interior ; in its mode of climbing, it rer minds us of a small bear. The female carries her young one on her back, until it has attained a considerable size, after. it has left the pouch. , The length of the Koala is about two feet, sometimes more;, the'head is short and large, and the muzzle black and de ¡ stitüté' of hair. The body is covered with an extremely compact wolly fur, of an ash-grey colour. The ears are peculiarly tufted, and when they are erect, the animal assumes a very wise and judge- like aspect. . The Koala is perfectly harmless, but is difficult to keep in confinement. A humourous old man fell in with an ignorant and rather...

MATCH-MAKING IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1854

MATCH-MAKING- IN AUSTRALIA.'' " Many a young digger, ;as he sat in- his noisy or cheer- less tent, and surveyed alternately" the àtirple provision of gold by his side, and the-. comfortless life he endured withal, bethought himself of - that which is described as a prospective crown of joy to a bachelor-namely, a wife. Paçking.up his knàpsaek, he would start for town, having previously, for precaution, sent his treasures before him by the armed escort.. As.he threads dis way through the busy street; his eyes are ever on the outlook. If there is no late arrivals of ' needlewomen' from Mr. Herbert's Society, if Mrs. Chisholm's last advised ship is not yet in,'' or if the cargo of Britannia's fair daughters landed only a wreek before by a- government free emigration ship has already disappeared bodily, then must he take his chance, where he can get it, and he is vigilant in proportion as he finds he has arrived on the ground a long day too late for the fair. Here, then, is a trim petti...

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AUSTRALIA. SATURDAY, APRIL 15, 1854. MODEL LODGING-HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1854

SATURDAY, APRIL 15,'1854. MODEL LODGING-HOUSES. OUR readers have no need tobe informed that the house-accom- modation in Sydney is very costly in price, very insufficient in amount, and very inferior in quality. The fact is the demand is greatly in excess of the supply, a circumstance which, of course, has raised the rents of dwellings, and necessitates a very, inconve- nient crowding of their inmates. We think that the cry raised against the landlords is very unreasonable. In the first place, houses are like any other property, and are subject to the saine contingencies of enhancement and depreciation. We do not see .why a landlord has not as much right to obtain the highest possi- ble rent for his house, as a shoemaker has io obtain the highest posssible price for his boots, or a mason, or a carpenter, to obtain the highest possible wages for his labour. Are landlords ever pitied when rents fall ? If house-property were so much to exceed the demand for it as to become nearly value...

THE EARLY CLOSING MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1854

THE EARLY CLOSING MOVEMENT. AN example has been set by some large commercial houses in Sydney which might well be followed and improved by others. The establishments to which we allude are regu- larly closed at one o'clock on the Saturday ; after that hour no business is transacted, and the clerks and assist- ants have the remainder of the day absolutely at their own disposal. This, we say, is -an example to be adopted and to be extended ; to be applied not only to the Saturday, but also, in its principle, to the other days of the week. We should like to see all places'of business-counting houses, warehouses, and shops-closed at one o'clock on the Saturday, and on the other week days not later than ?seven o'clock. We are aware, indeed, that mercantile of- fices are closed generally, if not universally, at six in the evening, but there are numbers of shops which remain open till ten and eleven, and, on the Saturday, even to a later hour. We have no wish that the interests of em- ploy...
