THE OYSTER.—(Ostren.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 April 1854

I , THE OYSTER.-(Östren.) '. . We this week furnish our readers with a i'ac-simile sketch of a remarkable group of oysters, attached to an old gingerbeer bottle, evidently of many years duration^ with a. short clay pipe, so |>ro : tesquely held within the folds of one of the oyster shells as to ap- I pear as though the oyster itself were enjoying- a puff of the soothing j weed. This quaint, but accidental combination of objects was fished up in Sydney harbour some years since, when it came into the possession of the late Benjamin Boyd, Esq., who valued it so highly, that on his leaving for California, he deposited it for safety in the Australian Museum, lest it might become injured or de- stroyed by carriage. Another curious example of oysters attached to a bottle occurs in the Museum collection, which proves that these shell-iisli are not migratory, as many have supposed. There are several species of oysters abundant in our harbour, of which the mud or common oyster, and the roc...

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AISTRALIA. SATURDAY, APRIL 29, 1854. A POSTPRANDIAL CERTIFICATE OF CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 April 1854

SATIIIIJDA'Y, Á'PllTL" 2D, ' 1854. : A POSTPRANDIAL CERTIFICATE OF CHARACTER. AN article in extravagant laudation of America, which appeared in a daily contemporary of Thursday, seems to require a Utile notice at our hands. Panegyric has been flung in handfuls; under the impression, apparently, that "some of it will stick." With the opening paragraph of the article we have nothing to do : happily, as it is rather obscure. The writer may be able to " discern right from wrong," but his meaning is not easily discerned by the reader. Thus far we are able to make it out-that some " young man" is represented as being of the neuter-gender, and is con- temptuously alluded to as "it." The ostensible object of our contemporary is to discredit certain j authorities, quoted by Mr. Wentworth in the Legislative Council, | which give an unfavotirable account of the actual working of j American institutions. That we disapprove ofthat gentleman's New 1 Constitution Bill, bur readers very well know; ...

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

VICTORIA. Ái'Rir, 18.-Easter-time has brought to the Melbournites only a very small modicum of that recreation with which the time-ho- noured festival stands associated in the English mind. People shut up their shops on Good Friday, and the city looked as Sun- day-like as it possibly could; and lhere seemed lo be a very ge- neral disposition to devote Monday to amusement; but unhappily, the rain came down as dull and as thickly as in the worst English November day, rendering out-door recreation a thing out of the question. So the citizens w^ere fain to open their shops, in default of anything else to turn their minds to ; albeit there were not many customers willing to trudge through the rain and mud for the pur- pose of patronising the diligent shopkeepers. With that all trace of Easter passed away, and at this present writing the appearance of the streets is very like that of London in the dark and busy days before Christmas. The " leading features," (as M. L. Cs phrase is, when t...

PUBLIC DINNER TO HIS EXCELLENCY THE GO- j VERNOR-GENERAL. (Abridged from the Moreton Bay Courier, April 15.) Os Friday evening, the 7th instant, the Public Dinner to his Excellency the Governor-General came off, in one of the long rooms nt the Immigrant depot, North Brisbane, which had been duly ¡prepared for the occasion. His Evcellency's suite, the Go- vernment Resident, Captain Fitzgerald and his officers, and the Government Geologist, were inviied guests. The room was de- corated with boughs, and being well illuminated, presented a very lively appearance. The company began to arrive at a little after sereu o'clock, and at about eight sat down to dinner. About a hundred gentlemen were present, and received his Excellency Sir Charles Fitz Roy with the most cordial demonstrations of wel- come. The chair was taken by Henry Stuart Russell, Esq., M.L.C., having on his right the Governor-General, the Govern- ment Resident, ard Major Prior, and on his left Captain Fitz- gerald, R.1S., s...

WOMAN'S SPHERE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 April 1854

. WOMAN'S SPHERE. : _ MANKIND, in general, have been compared to a nnraber of. wooden pegs cut, some round, some square, so as to fit an equal number of corresponding holes, but which have been disposed therein with so unfortunate an incongruousness that the square pegs, for the most part, find themselves in «he round holes, and vice versa. Especially does this comparison hold good of those hapless beings who, with the physical conformation of the gentle, have the mental tendencies of the rough sex ; who, having been thrown by Nature into the position of smooth and circular symmetry which a woman occupies in society, were designed by their genius-an evil one, np doubt-for the harsh angularity of man. These, for the sake of convenience, may be de- scribed generically by the term, in common use, of "strongs minded women," and-as,, indeed, all late superstitions, and extravagancies, and impostures do-flourish chiefly on American soil. You may, if you choose, distribute the genus into s...

DESTRUCTIVE FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 6 May 1854

DESTRUCTIVE FIRE. "WE have to report a very destructive fire that broke out last night at a few minutes past ten o'clock precisely, in the rear of the Illus- trated Sydney Neius printing office, and at a distance of about forty yards. The fire originated, in some manner at present unknown, in the stores of Messrs. Stewart and Co., which afforded a highly inflamable material, consisting, as they did, of a quantity of dra- pery, groceries, aud spirits. There was, as usual, great delay in procuring water, and, after the first appearance of the fire, fully three-quarters of an hour elapsed before the arrival of an engine. While we write, the combustion is still in progress; but the fire seems to be gradually burning itself out, the building occupied by the Messrs. Stewart being completely autted. The efforts of thc firemen are being principally direcred to affecting the security of an adjacent store. A large amountof property must already have been consumed, and we understand that the s...

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 6 May 1854

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. M. WINTERBOTTOM'S GRAND CONCERT.-On tue evening of Monday last, M. Winterbottom's Musical Festival collected in the Bazaar-Saloon of the Royal Hotel a more crowded and brilliant assemblage than is often brought' together for any purpose in Sydney. Indeed, the sitting-accommodation was quite inadequate, and not a few were compelled to stand during the entire perform- ance. Mrs. Hancock and Miss Flora Harris delighted the audience with their "most sweet voices"-butwemust say that the pleasure would have been still greater if the selection had been more judi- cious: M. Winterbottom's bassoon-playing, however, constituted the chief attraction ; and, certainly, that gentleman's complete mastery of this very difficult instrument was something marvellous. M. Wintei-bottom, in fact,' seems to have in his chest a sort of " Inexhaustible Bottle," from which issue in bewildering profusion the very eccentricities of an intricate and yet most harmonious melody. We trust that w...

THE AUSTRALIAN GLOBE FISH.—(TETRODON.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 6 May 1854

THE AUSTRALIAN GLOBE FISH.-(TETRODON.) THIS very peculiar fish, which is a new species of Tetrodon, has, within the past two or three months, first shown itself in the waters of Fort Jackson. In common with the genus Diodon, these fish possess the singular property of inflating the belly into a rounded ball, by swallowing air: when thus inflated, the under portions become lighter than the upper, and they turn upside down, swim- ming in this position, and apparently possessing the power of di > recting their course. The lower portion, from the chin to the vent, is armed with triangular spines, which are no doubt intended to ward off the attacks of its enemies: the back is likewise pro- tected by numerous but much smaller spines of a similar form. In colour this fish is remarkable, being of a leaden hue spotted . with black on the back, whilst along its entire length there ex- tends a broad band of lustrous silver perfectly metallic in appear- ance. The length of the specimens alre...

WITHDRAWAL OF THE RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR FROM LONDON AND PARIS. Baron Brunow left London on "Wednesday afternoon, 8th- Feb., by the 4\80 p.m. express train on the South Eastern Railway, for Dover. His Excellency was received at the station by Captain Barlow, superintendent of the railway, and Mr. Herbert, thc secre- tary.

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. SATURDAY, MAY 6, 1854. THE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 6 May 1854

tte? ' SATURDAY, MAY 6, 1854. THE ELECTION. IF we compare the election for the City of Sydney, which has just terminated in the return of Mr. Henry Parkes to the Legislative Council, with an ejection in England, we are struck at once with the contrast that is presented in two particulars. In the first, place, we missed here that high and universal excitement among all classes which, in the mother country, is invariably the result of an appeal to the free and independent electors. In the second place, and as a natural consequence," we looked in vain for the out- ward and visible signs and symbols of that exaltation. No flaunt- ing banners from staff, from window, and from balcony, waved upon the morning breeze-no energetic and itinerant bands of music inspired with ardour the hearts of the candidates, and crashed at each other a " high and-haughty defiance"-not even a cabbage-stalk was flung at the unpopular candidate when. he made his appearance on the. hustings,-though, tobe stire,...
