LIEUTENANT-COL. SIR T. L. MITCHELL, D. C. L., SURVEYOR GENERAL OF NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 13 May 1854

LIEUTENANT-COL. Sill T. L. MITCHELL, D. C. L., ? SURVJÎYOR GENERAL OF NEW SOUTH WALES. SIR THOMAS LIVINGSTONE MITCHELL is descended from an an- cient and noble family of Stirlingshire.*; Having been left almost an orphan at an carly age, he joined Lord Wellington's army in Portugal in 1810, and served with the old 95th Rifles at the sieges of Ciudad Rodrigo, and Badajoz. From that epoch until the termination of the Peninsular war, Lieutenant Mitchell was at- tached to the head-quarters of Lord Wellington, and was chiefly employed in sketching and reconnoitring positions-even before the battles were föuglit upon them-pariicularly that of Salamanca, (hoke before Burgos, and the heights of Larlume, in the Pyrenees. When the army embarked at Bordeaux, he was sent back into Spain, and specially instructed to survey the various fields of battle and positions of the allied army, after having obtained pass- ports from the'Spanish and Portuguese governments. Having concluded by surveying the...

PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 13 May 1854

~~ PUBLIC AMÜSEMENTS. ROYAL OLYMPIC ARENA.-We were both surprised and pleased by;-a visit to this place of -amusement, -which- was. thrown open to- the public on Tuesday evening. The entertainments were of avery varied and attractive character, and there was a total, absence-of that pretension which may be seen elsewhere, but which.; the performances-elsewhere do not sustain. "Mr. R» J. Osborn e¿. the lessee of this little theatre, has much cleverness, and possesses a most decided talent for comedy. For any of our readers who may be suffering from an attack of the blues, We prescribe Mr. Osborne's songof" The Unfortunate Man" as an infallible remedy; Some very clever and difficult feats of skill and strength were ex- *?* ecuted by. Professor Wieland, and by Professor Seigrist and his; son. . Mr. Osborne, in his part of caterer for the public amuse- ment, has laid even the canine tribe under contribution ; and, under his instruction, the "Dog Jonathan" has reached a pitch, of docile ...

RUSSIA AND TURKEY. (From the Times, Feb. ll.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 13 May 1854

RUSSIA ' AND TURKEY. I (From the Times, Feb. ll.) The short statement made last night by Lord Clarendon in the House of Peers confirmed the accounts we had already received of it-he result of the last négociations with the Court of St. Peters burgh, with some slight variations in point of form. Thus it seems that it was through Baron Lebzeltérn, the Austrian Minis- ter at that Court, and not by the hands of Count Orloff, that the Russian Cabinet returned its answer to the proposals of the Four Powers. What that answer was is already well known, for it con- sisted of counter-proposals, not only more inadmissible than the c .original Merischikoff Note, but the most inadmissible which could be devised for the occasion. It is useless further to allude to them, -except as a proof of what the Turkish Government would have to expect if Russia were in a condition to dictate the terms of peace. She "still disclaims or at least does not put forward, any scheme of territorial aggrandisement; b...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 13 May 1854

VICTORIA. The Golden Age- has brought Melbourne papers to the 5th in- stant. Their contents are not very interesting.

But the grim announcement in the official Gazette has positively declared that he will sail in the Golden Age, without even the re- servation of ' until' further notice.' The presentation of addresses has already been, commenced, and the grand demonstration is to be made to-day. At eleven o'clock the vice-regal apartments of the Government House will be thrown open to receive the visitors at the farewell levee. The levee will be an undre...

THE DEODORA PINE TREE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 13 May 1854

THE DEODORA PINE TREE. An interesting report has recently been published, ad dressed to the Eight Hon. T. F. Kennedy, Comini isioner of Woods and Forests, by Dr. J. F. Royle, late s p:'rin tendent of the East India Company's botanical gardsn, Sahurunpore, on the introduction and cultivation of the deodar (the most valuable of the pine trees of the Hima- layan mountains) in Great Britain. This tree is indige- nous to the Himalayas from elevations of 5,500 up to 12,000 feet above the sea, and is of a very hardy nature, growing on the tops of ridges and at the head of gorges, where it is exposed to great vicissitudes of temperature and violent gusts of wiud, and flourishing also in the poorest soils. The deodar is represented in this report to be most valuable as a timber tröe. A group in the . neighbourhood of Simla measured on an average 10 feet in girth, and another group nearly 11 feet, taken at 5 feet from the ground ; while on the northern declivity of the Himalayas they have bee...

EPISODE OF INEZ DE CASTRO; FROM SIR THOMAS MITCHELL'S TRANSLATION OF THE LUSIAD OF CAMOENS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 13 May 1854

EPISODE* OF INEZ DE CASTRO; FROM SIR THOMAS MITCHELL'S TRANSLATION OF THE LUSIAD OF CAMOENS. . , In order that our readers may fully understand the lollowin« verses, we prefix to them the history of the ill-fated lady who form their subject, as it is given in the notes appended by Sir Thoma Mitchell to his translation. 44 This unfortunate lady, Donna Inez de Castro, was the daughte of a Castilian gentleman, who had taken refuge in the Court o Portugal. Her beauty and accomplishments attracted the regan of Don Pedro, the King's eldest son, a prince of a brave and nobli disposition. La Neufville, La dede, and other historians, asser that she was privately married to the prince ere she had any shan in his bed. Nor was his conjugal fidelity less remarkable thai the ardour of his passion. Afraid, however, of his lather's resent- ment, the severity of whose temper he knew, his intercourse wit! Donna Inez passed at the Court as an intrigue, of gallantry. Or the accession of Don Pedro the C...

Provisions thereabouts are said to be very scarce; and it is stated that the storekcepsrs do not send çoods because of the difficulties attendant on their transit. Pack horses were in great requisition, and thc miner's ircnerally carry a supply of pro- visions with them hv that mode of conveyance. The miners at »Spring Creek, and in that neighbourhood, it appears they have no cause of complaint, because there is no falling off' in the yield. The demand for labour to work the mines increases greatly. At the date of the letter. £\ per day was the general rate of payment, hut as much as £ 1 10s. had been given ...

AMERICA AS SHE IS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 13 May 1854

AMERICA.AS SHE IS. I WE have long been disgusted with the adulation lavished on the United States of America by men who ever have the word of "liberty" on their lips, and pretend to have Liberty herself ever near to their hearts. This.laudation has become a thing of regular and ordinary usage, so that its absurdity is now overlooked, and even those, who if they reflected for a moment would renounce the wild .phantasy, from the brazen effrontery with which it is ?urged, acquiesce unresistingly in its reception. We will ¡ now speak out, and place the matter in its true light îbefore our readers. We utter our thoughts freely about Austria, and Russia, and France, and we do not see why howards America alone our speech should be that of dis- simulation. It is desirable, for many reasons, that the moral position of this last country should be strictly de- fined, and that its real character,. misrepresented alike by the interested and the simple, should be elucidated. To us it is perfectly...

RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 13 May 1854

RAILWAYS. As the construction of railroads in this country will in- dubitably form an immediate and important subject for the consideration of our Legislature, we need not apologise to our readers for laying before them the two following documents having reference thereto. The first is a letter addressed in 1847 by Mr. Stephen Marsh to Earl Grey, then Secretary of State for the Colonies, in which the plan for the formation of railroads in Australia, now so generally approved of is for the first time we believe, un foldëd and recommended. The second paper eonsists of a pamphlet published in London, in the year 1848, in which a " cheap system for the construction of railways is expounded." To this pamphlet we would draw the serious attention of every one in the colony who takes an interest in the prompt establishment among us of railway commu- nication. The theory propounded therein is clear, simple, and apparently irrefragable ; when reduced to practice, it has been eminently success...
