LATEST FROM EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 April 1854

LATEST FROM EUROPE. ; The following appeared in our Country Edition of Satur- day last : (From a Second Edition of the Empire.) , . THE Australasian Steam Navigation Company's fine new Etcamship, City of Sydney, arrived in port at daylight this morning, after an excellent passage, having left Greenock . ©n the 22nd of January. /We.are indebted to her officers for English and Scotch papers to the latest date. ! The Court remained at Windsor, but her Majesty and the Royal Household would leave for Osborne in the second week of March. ... .'. Négociations were still going on by the mediating Pow- ! ers of the west of Europe, with a view to the prevention of a . general war. In the meantime the combined fleets had entered the Black Sea ; and between Russia and Turkey, another important battle had been fought, at- tended by much slaughter, the Turks gaining the victory.

The train is attached . to the body at the waist, and is composed of various materials, according to the taste and.wealth of the wearer. Plain terry vel- vet, moire antique, reps, satin, gros de Tours, lampas, &c, are all employed ; as are also blonde, point d'Alençon, or English lace, over coloured satin, or taffetas. The trimmings are wreaths or bouquets of artificial flowers, tied with ribbons to match the silk; barbes of gold or silver lace ; in short the richer the material the .more expensive the ornaments. The dresses accompanying these trains are also made of different tissues, andaré often made to . match the train. The choice of coiffure is a...

PROGRESS OF EUROPEAN EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 April 1854

PROGRESS OF EUROPEAN EVENTS. THE recent intelligence from Europe has placed us in pos^. session of two new facts with regard to the eastern war» The first is, that another hattie has been fought on the Danube, and another victory has .crowned the Turkish! arms; the second, and much more important, fact is, that the two. great western powers have at length , assumed a determined and definite-position,, and have proclaimed it to Bussia and to the world by the most unequivocal; demon- strations. ; .;,'",..;'"-.'..,!. Throughout every nation with the slightest pretensions to' civilisation the continuedjdefeat of the- northern barba- rians 'must be a source x>f exultation and delight ; and not the. less so, that such an event had been, in general, rather hoped for than expected, lt.would be difficult to find at present « living man who occupies a position of greater ridicule and contempt than Nicholas, Emperor of all the ilussias.

SYDNEY POLICE COURT. Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 April 1854

./ SYDNEY POLICE COURT. Saturday. There were nineteen persons on the drunkards' List. Furious Driving.-George Wilson was found guilty of this offence in York-street, and sentenced to pay the full penalty with costs. Assault.-John Hawkins was charged with assaulting Edward Hayley. It appeared that, between ten and eleven o'clock on ¿he 8th inst.,'the prosecutor was seated smoking by his own fireside when a woman, pursued by the prisoner, rushed into his-house ; the prisoner, seizing her by the hair of her head, began-to beat her with violence, and, upon the prosecutor remonstrating, turned upon him and.kiiock.ed him down, saying, " Take that for your- self," and, while down, beat him on the head and body with some heavy instrument until he became insensible ; a medical man was called in, and has ever since been in attendance on him. The prisoner was committed for trial at the Quarter sessions. Horse-stealing.-Michael Dunn was committed to take his trial for horse-stealing, but admitt...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 22 April 1854

NEWS. OF THE WEEK. EASTER.-Easter Monday Avas celebrated by the citizens in the usual festive manner. The Custom House, the Banks, and nearly all the shops were closed. There was some heavy rain in the fore- noon,1 and the day wore, at this period, a rather unpromising aspect for pleasure-seekers. The weather,-however, clearedsubsequently, and, from twelve o'clock, the day combined all the warmth of a genial-English'.autumn with the splendour of an Australian sky and sun. Pleasure-tripV were made in every direction} 'but Wat , son's Bay was preeminently the favoured locality ; nine persons . out of every ten had their faces steadfastly set towards/Watson's I Bay. Between this last-named soot and Sydney, the steamers i Victoria, Goveruor-General, and Hellespont, were vibrating all day almost as regularly as so many pendulums. No accident of a seri- ous nature occurred, although it was the fate of the Governor General, on one bf her return trips, to break the monotonous uni- formity o...

ORIGINAL POETRY. OUR UNRECORDED DEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 April 1854

ORIGINAL POETRY. : OUR UNRECORDED DEAD. I. From crowded town and city pale, From village-preen, from factory-den, IP rom wrinkled Europe and thc stale .Old beaten haunts pf men : ' Across the wild Atlantic main, Across the smooth Pacific wave, They came to »eek a golden gain, But came to find a nameless grave. ii As snowflake« melt into-the stream, As bubbles biirat upon the spring, Or as the phantoms of a dream, In darkness vanishing ; Tliey sunk within the tide of Time, They faded from the fount of life, They flitted from this worldly dream Of joy and sorrow, sin and strife, ni. 'Or as tall ships in taunting pride Thrust forth their sharp bows from the shore; Then, sweeping o'er the waters wide, Arc never heard of more. They may have founder'd in mid «ea, , Or fire, or iceberg was their doom Who knows ?-All efforts vain will be To pierce their fate's dense midnight gloom, iv. The mother's prayer will still arise For him no prayers may now avail ; And'still will glad the mother'* e...

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 April 1854

' TASMANIA. Ecclesiastical affairs are in a most unsatisfactory, condition. The Church of England herc is .divided into two hostile . parlies, . neither of which is disposed to give way to the other.- The Bishop is accused of strong Puseyite leanings, and it is alleged as a grievance that he obstinately refuses to appoint ah evangelical i clergyman to any vacant chaplaincy ; and in one notable instance, j he has declined to rant his license to an evangelical clergyman, the Rev. Mi". Medland, although appointed by the Lieutenant Governor to the ministry of an important parish, at the express wish of a larue majority of the parishioners. This matter has been referred to the Secretary of State, and meanwhile the minis- terial duties are being jointly performed by Archdeacon Davies, (thc Chaplain of the Cathedral Church of St. David.) and his cu- rate, the RuV. Mr. Wilson. This is regarded ,b'v the evangelical party in the parish as a very unsatisfactory state of matters, and accordingl...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 April 1854

; ,. ' NEWS OF THE WEEK. ASSASSINATION.-We have tn relate a very shocking occurrence; which it is to he apprehended has ere this proved fatal to. a most estimable gentleman. About nine o'clock on Thursday morning, as Dr. Cuthill was return ina1 in his gi«' from Cook's River, where he had been attending a patient, he was fired at from behind, and received.a pistol bullet in his hack. He immediately descended from Iiis gig, and walked into Mr. Gannon's public house. In the meantime the man, whose name is James Gray, was secured and 'given into custody. On his way to the watchhouse the prisoner admitted that he had fired thc shot, and that he did so in order to avenge himself on Doctor Cuthill. It appears that Dr. Cuthill, about two 'years ago, visited the prisoner's wife in her confinement ; that soon. after the delivery both the woman aud the child died ; and that the prisoner thence concluded that there had been gross maltreatment on the part of the doctor, and frequently threatened...

DR. DAVIS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 April 1854

:-_ j DR. DAVIS. The Right Reverend Charles Henry Davis was horn at Usk, in Monmouthshire, on the ISth May, 1815. On the 15th of Au- gust, 182o", he entered the College of Gregory, Downside, a vil- la, >;e near Bath, where, on the 1st March, 1833, he oceanic a iiienibev of the Benedictine Order, in whose hands was the Go- vernment of the College.- On the 8th of November, IS4Ç, he was admitted to the Priesthood." After having; for nine years held the important office of Prefeet-of thc College, he was, in the year 1S47, nominated to the . episcopacy, and, having been appointed Coad- jutor to the Roman Catholic Archbishop, he arrived in Sydney in the month of December, 1S4S.

While he, also junnages to find time to be an active member of the Senate of the Sydney University, and t...

BE RD AN'S GOLD ORE CRUSHING MACHINE. j Thc exhibition-of this newly invented machine has for'some time excited much' interest at' home amongst men of science, and ge- nerally amongst men interested in mining pursuits. " By the in- ventor of the contrivance the following exposition 'of its nature and merits is afforded : Tlie features of the machiue are both mechanically and chemi- cally novel. It consists of a cast-iron basin, seven feet in diameter, revolving upon an inclined axis. In this basin arc two cast-iron balls thirty-four and twenty-four inches in diameter and weighing respectively 5,000. and 2,.0001bs.

THE EARLY CLOSING MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 April 1854

THE EARLY CLOSING MOVEMENT. . AK article on the above subject appeared in the Illus- trated Sydney News of the 15th instant. The useless folly and perverse mischief of the long business hours .wlíich píeváii'at present are.'so obvious, that;,tiie,same^ar^ guments, in almost, the same words, will occur to any two writers who candidly discuss the matter-as our readers may see, if they compare the following article with ours of the 15th ; A movement of-very hopeful kind has now assumed consider- able prominence in most of our cities, and naturally excites deep interest on the part of thore more immediately concerned. We refer to the t ffort to secure the shutting of shrps and places of business at.an earlier hour on five days of the week, and to secure a half-holiday on the Saturdays. The fact,.has come out. in the course of this discussion, that in »former times-generally, and in some respects justly supposed to be less enlightened-these ob-v jects were effectually secured ; and it is...

MOTHER AND DAUGHTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 April 1854

MOTHER AND DAUGHTER. RESPECTABLY dressed, middle-aged woman sat in the windowseat in the fine old hall of Ched- i bury Castle. There was nothing remarkable in her appearance, except a look of settled, yet patient anxiety, which deepened, as the short October's day drew near to its close, and broad, slanting sunset gleams and shadows stole across the quiet little shrub- bery and grass plot upon which she looked out fixedly. The servants, after having made to her the offer of 'some ¡ of refreshment-which she declined-came and went upon their j various errands without any apparent consciousness of har presence. ¡ And this was AH occasion upon which a personage of higher note might very easily have been overlooked-one of those times'of general bustle, preparation, and delightful confusion, when every- body seems to be busy helping somebody else, and the bonds of discipline undergo a" not unpleasing relaxation. The family were going abroad. . Two or three men servants, under the directio...

Charles Honeymanto that of the Grey Friars' school (a pseudonym for the 'Charter-House), where the Aiipposititious historiographer of his family, Mr. Arthur Pendennis, was at the time a senior boy. To Iiis protec- tion the youngster is recommended by Mr. Honey man .in' au eloquent speech, of the stilted, common-placej forcible feeble style, not altogether unknown to the readers of the Sydney daily Press. > I promised Mr. Honeymau to do what 1 could for the boy ; and, he proceeded to take leave.of his little nephew in my presence in Verras equâlly -eloquent, pulling out a long and very slen- der green purse from which he extracted the sum of two and six- pence, which he presented to the child, who received the money .with rather a queer twinkle in his blue eyes. After that day's school, I met my little protégé in the neigh- bourhood . of the pastrycook's, regaling hims...
