MISS CLEVELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 24 March 1864

MISS CLEVELAND. Ever on the alort to augment and strengthen his already most offioient dramatic company at the Theatre Eoyal, Mr Barry Sullivan has made a most valuable addition, in the person of Miss Cleveland, whoso portrait accompanies this notice. Hiss Clovolond made her first ap pearance on the 27th nit., and accomplished a most brilliant suc «ess, -which she has since maintained, by her acting, amid the nightly ver dicts of crowded houses. The open ing piece was the German drama of ♦? Leah the Forsaken,' which re cently produced so great a sensa tional Buccess in London. Here, however, her triumph — for it amounted to that— was quite legiti mate as an effort of intellectual, pnB sionate and refined art. Her por onation of the proscribed forsaken Jewish maiden was beautiful, touch ing and delicate. Of a graceful and ?commanding person', Miss Cleveland is accomplished in all that belongs to that most telling part of her art — the craft ,of appropriate attitude. She : has a most ...

X ATE R TRQM N E W ZEALAND. FURTHER ADVANCE OF THE TROOPS. Via Sydney we have oar files from Auckland to the 2nd instant. ' The special correspondent of the & M. Herald, writing on that date, says:— Since my last no great events have taken place at the seat of war ; indeed, people begin to assert that the General, like Hannibal at Capua, is going into winter quarters in the fertile plains of Bangiawhia. In some sense the latter statement is true. The, army which General Cameron directed against Piko Piko and Pa te Rangi will, not move again as an army this enrnmer. The head-quarters of the 50th Regiment are, for instance, fixed at Rangiawhia village ; those of the 70th are likely to he. placed at Kihi-Kihi, a few miles farther on; and the others in different parts of the splendid country which they have gained by the recent movements. The only signs which the natives have made in the last week have been showing in some force near Kihi-Kihi, as our men advanced thither ; and ...

A VERY SAD CASE came before the police court,       yesterday. About a fortnight ago a servant girl   named Ann Bates arrived in Geelong from Camper- down by the coach, which stopped at the Union Ho- tel. While there she was taken suddenly ill, and could not proceed down town to her friend's house. Mr Rowley went for Dr. Day, and he at once at- tended ; and found that the girl was in labor. As she could not leave the hotel under such circum-   stances, she was provided with accommodation, and a nurse sent for, and after the lapse of a day or two she was delivered of a still-born child, which was buried, and the death of which was duly registered. Two or three days ago she left the Union Hotel to go and reside with a friend, and on the day follow- ing her departure an inquest was held on the   body of a child found dead on the Western   Beach, and a verdict of wilful murder was re- turned again...
