THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. SATURDAY, MAY 13, 1854. THE ELECTION FOR THE COUNTY OF STANLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 13 May 1854
SATURDAY, MAY 13, 1854. t THE ELECTION FOR THE COUNTY OF STANLEY. WE wish to say a few words in reference to this election, as some of the circumstances connected with it are curious, and, so far as we know, altogether unprecedented. There were, as our readers * are aware, two candidates, Mr. Arthur Hodgson and Dr. Lang, and of the votes actually taken the reverend gentleman obtained a majority ; but, in consequence of a singular delinquency on the part of one of the deputy returning officers, the validity of Dr. Lang's return, and of the whole proceedings, is questioned. It appears that of the three polling places for the district-Brisbane,. Ipswich, and Drayton-a poll was taken only at the first two, Drayton being entirely neglected, and no return whatever being made therefrom. On account of this irregularity the returning officer, Major Prior, refused to declare the successful candidate duly elected, preferring to await instructions for his guidance from tile Colonial Secretary. ...

PARK HALL [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 13 May 1854
PARK HALL Park Hall, neat Appin, the country residence of Sir Thomas Livingstone Mitchell, has been erected by himself, being named j-.nd modelled after Park Hall in Stirlingshire, Scotland, the seat of the ancient and honourable family of Livingstone. At this latter place Sir Thomas was brought up, under the care of his uncle, Thomas Livingstone, Esq., and, on finally settling in a far distant country, he gratified a natural sentiment in endeavouring to re-produce in New South Wales his old home in the " land of mountain and of flood." À princely demesne surrounds the mo- dern Park Hall, presenting, in its diversified beauty of tree and . lawn and underwood, all the appearance of an English park, while in extent it is rivalled but in few instances, the visitor having from the entrance-gate to the mansion a good ride of five miles. "We trust that Sir Thomas Mitchell may bug live to en j >y his property in a country which he has so eminently served.
THE BOMERANG PROPELLER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 13 May 1854
THE BOMERANG PROPELLER. It is a singular fact, that at this moment there are several screw steam vessels in Port Jackson or its vicinity, much damaged in their sterns, and shaken into leakiness, by having had to drag a propeller weighing five tons or more, when that propeller may be reduced.to about three tons in order to make it propel the vessel faster, and render it more safe and portable, and less resistive when the vessel is under canvas. It was of such a form exactly, a form to which any common two-bladed screw may be reduced, that the Earl of Dundonald wrote the following description (hitherto unpublished), explaining the action of its blades in water, an element so well known to the veteran Vice-Admiral of the Blue. THE RIGHT HON. THE EARL OF DUNDONALD, VICE-ADMIRAL OF THE BLUE, ON. THE BOME- RANG PROPELLER. BRIEF OBSERVATIONS ON THE BOMERANG PROPELLER. To comprehend the extraordinary properties of this Propeller, it is necessary to consider the effect produced on water by t...

s ? ? LATEST INTELLIGENCE. By the arrival of the P. and O. Company's steamship' Madras, "vhieh arrived here at a few minutes after midnight on friday luorninj, we have intelligence from London to the Sth of March, and from Malta to March 14. The Court was at Buckingham Palace, and her Majesty and the Royal children were well, i The severe weather in the east of Europe had temporarily inter- rupted the hostile movements of Russia and Turkey ; but in the meantime, the most anxious and vigorous preparations for war were being made by England and Franee, which Powers had severally, by special envoys to St. Petersburg, insisted that the Russian forces should retire beyond the Pruth, or abide the consequences. A correspondent of a Singapore paper, writing from London Feb- ruary 24 says :-" All doubt as to the policy of England and France is now set at rëst. Both nations are making the most vigo- rous preparations for war, it being now evident to the world that nothing but force or fear wi...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. THE PARIS EXHIBITION MEDAL.-Our readers are aware that tlie New South Wales Commissioners appointed to superintend thee matters connected with the approaching Paris Exhibition, decided on granting a prize medal to successful competitors in the colony, and invited by advertisement designs for th3 same, offering.two prizes, of fifteen guineas, and five guineas respectively. We are now happy to state that, out of thirteen candidates, Mr. C. W. Andrewsand Mr. F. Terry are the successful ones, both gentlemen being artists who contribute to the Illustrated Sydney News. The design of Mr. Andrews, which gained the first prize, combine beauty with simplicity. It represents Britannia introducing Aus- tralia to France. France is seated, with the eagle by her side, and holding in her hand a wreath. Britannia, in her wonted Ama- zonian costume, with the British lion for a lap dog at her foot, leads up and introduces to her ally a beautiful young woman. The shepherd's crook in h...
MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 20 May 1854
.MINING INTELLIGENCE. THE TURON.-From what t can gather from private, but reti- ñid?, sources respecting the new diggings, I learn that many of the | diggers have obtained, and are still obtaining, prospects of a very promising nature. A quarter of an ounce, and even 10 and 12 dwts. to the pan-full of washing stuff, has been frequently obtained. The number of diggers is daily increasing, and are scattering themselves in various directions, and new localities are in conse- quence daily being opened. There has not been much gold sent down this week, owing to its receiving a sudden fall from £3 16s 6d to £3 14s., in consequence of the banks refusing to purchase, and the diggers are now holding on in expectation of a higher price. Correspondent to Bathurst- Free Press. OMEO DIGGINGS.-We have just had an interview with one of a party of California diggers, who is now in Goulburn on business. He-informs us that himself and party arrived some time ago in Melbourne from San Francisco, and t...

THE GOVERNOR GENERAL'S MANUAL, AND VADEMECUM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 20 May 1854
THE GOYEEiSlÖE: GENERAL'S MANUAL, AND . Y ADE MÉCÜM. A GOVERNOR' GENERAL should be constituted differently from ©tiler men,' and the motives of all his actions should be different from "theirs. He should have the welfare pf the state always before his. eyes, and to it his attention should ever be turned as the needle to 'the pole. He has no right'either to eat, or drink, or travel for his own plea- sure : all these things should be dorie solely for the good of the country, and if they can be made disagreeable to the Governor, so much the better. In dining on roast beef or mutton, he should have no other object than that of en- couraging the pastoral interest ; and should he drink a bottle of claret without having regard to the principles of political economy, his conduct would be censurable. He j should not possess high animal spirits : any tendency towards jollity in'a Governor General being extremely re- prehensible. He should not be particular about his tailor ; and, indeed, if h...

THE LUDLOW TESTIMONIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 20 May 1854
í THE LUDLOW TESTIMONIAL. Pursuant to notice by advertisement, a meeting of the committee for getting up a testimonial to Captain Ludlow, of the American ship Monmouth, his officers, and crew, for the courage and hu- manity displayed by them in the rescue of the passengers of the ship Meridian, wrecked on thc island of Amsterdam, took place on Wednesday afternoon, at the Exchange rooms. Captain Towns took the chair, and it wa3 stated that the gross amount collected was £520 10s., and the expenses of advertising, commission, &c, left a net balance of £'í94¡ 'kl. to be appropriated. It was moved by Mr. Illidge, and seconded by Mr. J. V. Lavers, "That a gold medal, with a suitable inscription thereon, andlhe sum of £25, be presented to Charier, Snow, late a seaman of the oarque Meridian, for his gallant conduct when that vessel was wrecked on the island of Amsterdam."

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. SATURDAY, MAY 20, 1854. THE MODEL REPUBLIC. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 20 May 1854
SATURDAY, MAY 20, 1854. THE MODEL REPUBLIC. AFTER having once arraigned America as the great slave-land of the world, it would seem to be a work of supererogation to bring against it any further charge. The highest pitch of human atro- city has been reached, and in comparison with it occurrences, which among us would be considered acts of monstrous tyranny and injustice, may be regarded as faint blemishes and slight imper- " fections. However, it may not be out of place to remind our readers that negroes are not, in point of fact, the only slaves in the United States, and that, in that happy country, white men and American citizens are every hour of their lives liable to treatment which to the most poor-spirited Englishman would, even for a single mo- ment, appear intolerable. For instance, it is forbidden by law, under severe penalties, to impart instruction to a slave. For a breach of this vile and shameful enactment (if by the side of sla- very itself anything else can be deemed ...
IMPORTANT TO ADVERTISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 20 May 1854
. IMPORTANT TO ADVERTISERS. THE attention of advertisers is respectfully called to the fbllowin > scale of charges for advertisements, which, it is presumed, will be found lower than that adopted by any of our contemporaries. Every advertisement is well displayed, and as the Illustrated Sydney News has now a circulation approaching to 30UÜ copies weekly, in Town and Country, and in the adjacent colonies of Victoria, South.Australia, Van Dicmen's.Land. and New Zealand, it manifestly offers a very desirable medium of communi- cation to advertisers.

TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS. We have lately had many complaints of irregularity, in the deli- very of the Illustrated Sydney News. A careful investigation of the matter enables us to state, in positive terms, that when any number does not reach the subscriber, it is to be feared that it is dishonestly purloined. Measures are now in operation by which it is hoped that some of the guilty parties may be detected ; and, if they are, it may be depended upon that no expense will be a bar to a legal prosecution.
