MINING INTELLIGENCE. THE TURON. (From our Own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 6 May 1854

I MINING INTELLIGENCE. THE TURON". (From our Own Correspondent.) The new diggings alluded to in my last communication, are progressing favourably; From calculations which I made at'the various localities, I should suppose the number of people there to be about 500 or 600, and large numbers are daily arriving from Tambaroora and the adjacent diggings. The prospects obtained by many of the diggers are of a highly satisfactory character, and' incontrovertibly prove the richness of our gold fields. Six ounces of gold were to-dày taken out of a pan full of washing stuff, whilst ten and twelve pennyweights to the .pan were obtained by many parties. It is observed,. however, by the correspondent of the Bathurst paper, that the gold lies in patches. Many parties some- times Obtain several ounces in a day, and afterwards work for a whole week in the same claim without getting anything. > Sofala is very dull, and is in truth becoming a "deserted village-' Every one who can conveniently rem...

RECOLLECTIONS OF THE LATE SIR CHARLES NAPIER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 6 May 1854

RECOLLECTIONS OF THE LATE SIR CHARLES NAPIER. The nationally lamented Duke has been speedily followed to his rest hy another gallant and renowned soldier. The conqueror of Scinde is de;id, ard we have just returned from witnessing the a nomalous funeral bestowed on him. As he was not on full pay, a military interment with its solemn pomp of mournful music, and sullen musquetry, was refused to the war-worn soldier-a circum- stance painful on some accounts, and flattering to the nation on another, since the reason assigned was that England had so many worthy sons, that to give such a distinction to all is impossible, and an invidious exception to liv: rule cou.'d not be permitted. Still some unusual bunour was shown to the great chief. The High street of Portsmouth, in thc military chapel of which he was buried, was lined with unarmed sal Liers, chiefly Highlanders, whose beautiful costume, especially their sable and scarlet plumes, gave an imposing e'lect to the scene. The Corporatio...

TEE APPROACH OF THE END. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 6 May 1854

TEE APPROACH OF THE END. THE progress of the great drama has been slow, which has ? for its stage a''great portion of the globe, and all the; civilised world for spectators. The prologue was tedious, the action small and insignificant, the striking incidents few and far between, and'the protracted preparation of the catastrophe was rapidly becoming fatal to its interest. The parts were feeble, arid the actors, foi the most, part, desti- tute of energy and dignity. It must be admitted, indeed, that the Emperor Nicholas played to perfection the rWe of the brutal, . bullying, and unscrupulous villain: nothing ¡ could have been' more true to nature than his acting, all his gestures,' looks,', and tones showing him to be " every inch" a ruffian. The Sultan, too, was riot without mani».' festing several flashes of vigour and passion, but was miserably supported by a stupid old fellow, one Aberdeen, who in his best days was never fitted for the high part of ! Fnglish premier, but whose app...

RUSSIA AND TURKEY. HOUSE OF LORDS, FEBRUARY 6. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 6 May 1854

RUSSIA AND TURKEY. \ HOUSE OF LORDS, FEBRUARY 6: The Marquis of Clanriearde said he had given notice- of a question which was on the paper that evening. He had thought from aeneral rumours, and the language held by, the noble earl on Tuesday night last,, that the proposition made to the Emperor of Russia had"been declined by him, and that a forn»al refusai- to ^-: accede.to that proposition would have arrived in chis country befóte BOW. - It appeared,'however, from some of the newspapers, and from statements which had been made to him, that no formal reply to that proposition had been received from the Emperor of Russia, and that something of the semblance of a négociation was still going on at Vienna. Under those circumstances, while there was even so faint a prospect, and he feared it was but faint, of peace, he for one should be very sorry to bring on any discussion which «light lesson that slender hope. He did not Wish, therefore, to go into such questions that night as were con...

THE LUSIAD 0F LUIS DE CAMOENS, CLOSELY TRANSLATED. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 6 May 1854

THE LUSIAD ,0F LUIS DE CAMOENS, CLOSELY . TRANSLATED; > BY LIEUTENANT-COLONEL SIR T. L. MITCHELL, KT.; D.C.L.* IT is no small gratification tons tobe the first to introduce-to the Australian public this the latest and most elegant production of the prolific pen of Sir Thomas Mitchell. Before we proceed, however, to notice the work of .the translator, it-would seem desirable to say a few words, in the first instance, about the great Portuguese poet him self, and, in the second, about the nature of the Epic which has conferred upon him and his country .imperishable renown. Notwithstanding the reputation and wide-spread fame of Camoens -^notwithstanding the fact that his Lusiad has been translated not only into Italian, Spanish, French, English and Latin, but even into Hebrew, by a " learned and ingenious " Jew, named Luzzetto still, it is true that the vast majority'of Englishmen know nothing more about him and his Poem than the mime of each, while many, no doubt, have never heard ...

The following extracts are from the Mel- bourne Morning Herald and Argus : THE LAST DEMANDS OF RUSSIA. The demands of Russia, communicateu by Orloif to the Court of Vienna, merit for their extravagant insolence a distinct enume- ration. Tliey are four in number: 1st.

A SCENE AT ASHTON'S CIRCUS, HANGING ROCK DIGGINGS. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 6 May 1854

A SCENE AT ASHTON'S CIRCUS, HANGING ROCK DIGGINGS. (From a Correspondent.) THE enclosed sketch (see page 41) represents Mr. Ashton, of the Royal Olympic Circus, who has favoured us with a visit, perform- ing a most extraordinary feat of strength and horsemanship, which is entirely his own. He is shown in the character of the Roman and his Pupils. As the horses gallop round the Circus, he stands on their backs, sup- porting an expert little rider, Miss Irvine, and Mungo Mungo, one of his troop of aborigines, on his shoulders. As Mr, Ashton is about to leave for the Rocky River Diggings, it is to be hoped that on his return he may give the Hanging   Rock another call, as it helps to dispel the monotonous feeling that prevails at this season of the year in this outlandish part of her Majesty's dominions.

ENGLAND AND HER COLONIES. (From the London Shipping Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 13 May 1854

ENGLAND AND HER COLONIES. (From the London Shipping Gazette. ) It is when this country is engaged in foreign wars that the value and importance of the British Colonies to the nation will he hest appreciated. It is on such occasions' that the readiest answer can he given to those who tell us that Colonies are an incumbrancè, and that the country would be much better without the expense of them. A very little reflection will show the folly of such a remark. England is essentially a commercial nation, and the" trade of her colonies alone would render her, in a great degree, independent of all foreign trade, The Australian Colonie» afford a recent instance of the truth of what we state and when war is impending over, the country appears to be a fit occasion to call attention to the subject. There is scarcely a branch of our trade that is not at this moment getting full employment in supplying these' new and rising colonies, with every prospect that the de- mand will not only continue, b...
