A PAGE FROM A WOMAN'S HEART; OR, FEMALE HEROISM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1854
Ä PAGE FROM A ' WOMAN'S HE ART ; OR, FEMALE HEROISM. PON what occasion did you come ia possession of this?" said a young man, directing the pawnbroker's at- tention to a small ruby brooch in the show case. &lt;',That? Oh, that was brought here last night by a prettyish young ¡ woman, who seemed to be in a great fluster about the money ; and so I bought it of her." "How did she _Jî look ? Had she ^ blue eyes ? Was she tall and slen- der?" "Why, bless your soul," said the pawn- broker, " I has hun- dreds of 'em in here every day, andi never looks twice at 'em. She was a broken - down lady, I think. Some- body said she lived up that court yonder. Like to redeem the brooch, sir ?" " Yes, certainly, " > said Ernest; and-pay ' ing the extortioner five times what he ? had given for it, he depo- sited it in his pocket. "Good Heavens'! that Agnes Kearn should come to this . was his first exclamation on reaching the street. " That brooch, that 1 have seen sparkle on her snowy neck ...
A REVERIE ON OSTENTATIOUS DISPLAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 15 April 1854
A REVERIE ON OSTENTATIOUS DISPLAY Ten pounds for a pocket-handkerchief ! My dear woman, you need a strait-jacket, even though you may be the fortunate owner of a dropsical purse. I won't allude to the legitimate use of a pocket-handkerchief ;. I won't speak of the sad hearts that " ten pounds," in the hands of some philanthropist, might lighten; I won't speak of the. " crows' feet " that will be pencilled on your fair fáce, when your laundress carelessly slicks the point of her remorseless smoothing iron through the flimsy fabric, or the constant espionage you must keep over your treasure in omnibiisses, or when promenading;;but I uiill ask you.how many of the lords of creation for whose espe- cial benefit you array yourself, will know whether that cobweb rag now fluttering in your hand cost ten pounds or ten pence. ' Pout if you like, and toss your head, and say you " don't dress ; to please the gentlemen; " I dont hesitate to tell you (at.this dis- tance from your fing-er nails) t...

MAGNIFICENT TESTIMONIAL TO DANIEL COOPER, JUN., ESQ. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 April 1854
! MAGNIFICENT TESTIMONIAL TO DANIEL COO ! PER, JUN., ESQ. On Thursday we had the pleasureof inspecting at the establish- ment of Messrs. Brush and Mac Donnell, in George-street, the I most beautiful, specimen of silversmith's work that we have ever ! seen in the colony. It consists of. a very large and elegant flower vase, manufactured of pure silver. It is of a rustic pattern, com j posed of vine stems, leaves, and fruit, and the vase itself has open interstices and contains a beautiful ruby glass vase of great rich j ness of colour. The plinth upon which the vase stands is of solid I silver, and of the most massive and highly wrought workmanship. ! The whole is decorated with a bouquet of the beautiful feather I flowers, which the nuns of Valparaiso are so celebrated for manu ! facturing, and which almost mock the beauty of nature. Some I idea of the size and, value of this splendid work of art may be had I when we say that its weight is upwards of 300 ounces, and that the silver ...
MINING INTELLIGENCE. BENDIGO. Sandhurst, April 9th, 1854. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 April 1854
I .. - MINING INTELLIGENCE. BENDIGO. Sandhurst, April 9th, 1S54. The last week has heen characterised by a recurrence of rainy weather, which has flooded the Bendigo Creek to a degree un- known since the diggers first located themselves on its banks. On Wednesday last we had a sharp, short storm in the evening, of thunder, lightning, wind, and rain. The storm blew over, and in about an hour after a torrent of water washed down the creek, flooding the adjacent fiats, fillingi up holes, and extending to-tile stores fronting the Camp..¿The w'atei did not rise high enough to do any damage beyond carrying- away tubs and cradles left by the diggers close to the creek. . On Friday afternoon, a succession of thunderstorms with ^torrents of rain swept over thc township, and at night the creek became, flooded to an alarming extent. The water extended over all the adjacent level ground, and half of the township of Sandhurst was covered with water-in some places three or four feet deep'. In nea...
THE TURON. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 April 1854
THE TURON. (From mr own Correspondent.) Since tlte date of my last communicaaion, this district has been visited by a heavy fall of rain, which had risen the river and its numerous tributaries, and, of course, put a stop to all bed claim ; operations. On former occasions a flood wà-s"îooked upon as a very ; unwelcome visitor, but, on this occasion, the reverse i» the case, inasmuch as the diggers have been driven to prospecting, and this has led to the discovery of new digging localities. At Green ? Wattle Flat, several new places have been opened, where the dig- gers are obtaining gold in paying quantités. The majority of the * Turon people are flocking thère, and stores and puplic houses ane increasing fast. i Sofala, April 18th, 185*.
THE VALLEY OF THE WATERFALL, BATHURST ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 April 1854
THE VALLEY OF THE WATERFALL, BATHURST ROAD. Tlie scene, of which the above is a sketch, is situated on the southern side of the road to Bathurst, about a mile and a half from the Weather Board Inn. From theßuuimitof the. overhang- ing cliffs, the spectator gazes on a vast tract of thickly wooded ' forest, shunted some 2,000 feet beneath bini, into whose depths, it . is said, no human; foot has ever penetrated. Xegends exist of a party of adventurous men who, after being lowered by ropes for some distance, intending to ex : plore the unknown region, sud- denly gave the signal to be hauled up, and on reaching their compa .nions at the top, stated that on, looking below during their de v' scent, they saw some unearthly looking being, whether man or beast they could not determine, moving through the forest, which so appalled them, that they would venture no farther. Seen by the picturesque light of a morning or afternoon sun, the scene is one of the most savage grandeur that can be witn...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 April 1854
VICTORIA. Yes'erday afternoon the usual forras within the House being gone through, the Legislature of Victoria was prorogued, after a very protracted session. The vicinity of St. Patrick's Hall was the centre of attraction to the few people who have leisure to look at any afternoon.pageant, procession, or spectacle that may present itself to the business absorbed inhabitants of Melbourne. . Accord- ingly, some'three hundred spectators gathered round-the fane of senatorial eloquence, and law-giving prescience. The honourable ?members, for the most part, looked cold, damp, and uncomfortable as they arrived, and it cannot be" expected but that the majority were very glad to take (for a time) their " last fond look " at the chamber-where so much of their time had been employed. A po- lice force, composed of picked men from all the divisions, and under the .superintendence of Inspectors Freeman and Page, kept the approaches to the Hall. A guard of honour accompanied his .Excellency, who...
NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 April 1854
NEW ZEALAND. It is just six years last Thurs- day since there appeared from our shores, as it were, a speck on the horizon. It approaches nearer and nearer : the discovery is made - a ship is in sight! -a ship hearing to our harbour a little band: of kindred spirits in search of a home, and prepared to en- counter all the realities of an. emigrant's life. They land, and being joined from time to lime by other adventurous spirits like unto themselves, have formed the present society we see around ns. Difficulties as usual have crossed our path, and. been manfully over- come ; and now that we are ad- vancing from infancy to maturity , a new era is opening before tis. In a commercial point of view, we are progressing satisfactorily. Year after year shows a steady in creasé in the value of our exports. The result of industry and perse- verance is manifest wherever we go, arid our people are contented under their improved condition. We say improved condition ; for we are confident that f...
MR. THACKERAY'S NEW SERIAL—THE NEWCOMES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 April 1854
MR. THACKERAY'S NEW SERIAL-THE NEW COMES. ALTHOUGH Mr. Thackeray's reputation as a clever and popular author is now fully established, and though, in all probability, his name is known wherever the English language is spoken, yet we have no doubt but that there are many persons in this colony who, having had no oppor- tunity of judging of his merits for themselves, are obliged to take them on hearsay. But few copies, comparatively, of a new book are imported into Australia, and these being soon bought up with eagerness, a considerable period must necessarily elapse before a fresh supply can be obtained, and, hy that time, the work has begun to be regarded as an old one, and, probably, has been superseded iii the public attention by some other. For the benefit, there- fore, of such of our readers as may come within the cate- gory which we have mentioned, we propose, from time to -time,'-tb give an analysis of the separate parts of Mr. Thackeray's new periodical, now in course of publ...
THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AUSTRALIA. SATURDAY, APRIL 22, 1854. "PENNY WISE, AND POUND FOOLISH." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 April 1854
SATURDAY, APRIL 22, 1854. ' " PENNY WISE, AND POUND FOOLISH." THE Victorian Legislature has just been guilty of a piece of sordid barbarism so incredible that, when hereafter the annals of thc tiolony arc written, it will certainly become a subject of jrrave "historic doubts." It appears that our brethren of Port Phillip are not acquainted with, or at least do not practise, the principles of a sound economy ; that, enormous as their wealth is, it is ex- ceeded by their expenditure ; and that, in short, they have, in a very fine style and at a very fine pace, been outrunning the con- stable. The deficiency in the revenue, however, which is the con- sequence, of this prodigality, must be supplied, and the Solons oí the Council, therefore, put their heads together, and meditate pro I foundly on the ways and means. After much deep thought' and laborious cogitation, the senatorial countenances brighten all at once, and a loud and general cry of " Eureka !" is heard. If wc are asked the c...
