__1_. HOUSEHOLD ECONOMY. THE item of Fuel alone is a sufficient induce- ment to Housekeepers to use the above im- proved and serviceable Cooking Apparatus, which may be had in great variety at the manufactory. CHARLES YOUNGER, 320, Pitt-street, Near King-street, Sydney. "~~ THE WIDE-AWAKE. Of all the hats I ever did see, The wide-awake is the hat for me ; It's only truth when I declare How it's the fashion everywhere !

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

¡ MINING INTELLIGENCE. -> ! TUENA DIGGINGS.-A week or two since, a storekeeper, who is one of the chief buyers of Tuena gold, took about a quarter of a hundred-weight of the precious metal to Sydney, which he sold at a first-rate price. The gold was procured in a very few weeks, by a very few hands. We learn that there are several parties making rapid fortunes at these diu Rings, which are evidently in their in I fancy. It has been stated to us that the blanks are fewer than at I any other gold field in the colony.-Goulburn Herald, October 22. ! ANOTHER GOLD FIELD.-An Aboriginal native at the Moruya, i reported that Mr. Foster, a resident at Bremaqui, and another per- son had obtained three panakins of uold ; and a man in the employ of Wm. Campbell, Esq., stated on Saturday last, that lie had been to the place, and had obtained an ounce, that the gold was very coarse, and the locality about five miles from Bremaqui, and that a bottle full was at his master's from it.-Herald.

GOOD OUT OF EVIL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

GOOD OUT OF EVIL. IT is by no means improbable that, while we write, an Europes war is rag ing : that while, in this hemisphere, we have been engagí in the. peaceful avocations of commerce, or the mo exciting adventures of a gold-dk'ger's life, in the other the fir cannon has sounded, and a new-born struggle between liberty ar despotism been baptised in blood. By the latest English news v learn that the relative positions of the great powers concerned we: much the same on the 11 th of August last as they had. been month previously. Indeed, the true aspect of affairs was, if sn; thin'/, more warlike. The Russian a uression was not only pera vercd in, but a gravated. Not only were the principalities of Mo davia and Wallachia still occupied by the troops of Russia, bi that power had compelled the Hospodars of those provinces to ri nounce their allegiance to the Porte, and to intimate that renunci; tion in the most practical manner-by the refusal to pay the ord nary tribute. The explana...

VICE IN SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

VICE IN SYDNEY. FEW things can be more melancholy than the spectacle of a nation increasing in every element of national prosperity, while in virtue and in morals it is deteriorating. We are aware, indeed, that, in the eyes of the thoughtless and superficial, the energy of commercial enterprise, the glare and glitter of dissipation, and the magnificence of a pro- fuse expenditure, lend a splendid illusion to vice, and deck it out so finely, that it escapes uncensured, or is even mistaken for virtue.- But, with men of reflection ? and penetration, this false light, hy making vice more con- spicuous, makes it more hateful, and serves to place more strongly before them the frightful contrast between physi- cal progress and moral degeneracy. So far as regards mere external circumstances, there is no people on the earth more flourishing than we. The days so long pro- jected by philosophers, so long prayed for by philanthro- pists, seem to have dawned for us, and poverty has dis- appeared...

LOSS OF THE BRIG EXCHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

LOSS OF THE BRIG EXCHANGE. Yesterday, this fine brig unfortunately went ashore on the inner j South Reef, in attempting to get out to sea. À light baffling wind j and an eddy set the brig on the reef nearly in the same spot where j the brig Two Friends was lost some time ago, and under nearly similar circumstances. The passengers all got ashore in safety, j but lost their all. The vessel is a total wreck. She was insured, I but a large portion of her valuable cargo was on risk. The brig was the property of Messrs. Coffey, Hill, and Co., of Melbourne. The Acheron man-of-war steamer was promptly down to the wreck, where her ollicers and men, as usual, distinuuished themselves by their praiseworthy efforts in rendering every assistance in their power.

FACETIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

FACE TIM. YOUTH AND AGE.-A good story is told of Berkeley Craven and Lord Alvanly, when an accident happened to their carriage. The fonfter, getting out to thrash the footman, saw he was an old fellow, and said, " Your age protects yoti ; while Alvanly, who had advanced towards the postilion with the same intention, seeing he was an athletic young fellow, turned from him, saying, in his wag- gish way, " Your youth protects you." DIFFERENCE OF TASTE.-One young lady, with ten thousand dollars, advertises in .the New York Tribune for a Presbyterian or Dutch Reformed husband. Another stipulates that her lord shall be six feet, high ! CANDOUR.-A blacksmith was lately summoned to a county court as a witness in a dispute between two of his workmen. The judge, after hearing the testimony, asked him why he did not ad- vise them to settle, as the costs had already amounted to three times the disputed sum. He replied, ' I told the fools to settle ;. . for I said the clerk would take their coat...

CHEAP DIET. PART IV.

He had re- solved to postpone his declaration to Miss "Wynn until he should have his property completely in his hands.

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AUSTRALIAN. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29TH, 1853. THE DEFENCES OF SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29TH, 1853. THE DEFENCES OF SYDNEY. ALTHOUGH the tenor of the recent advices from England is generally assumed to be of a more pacific tendency than the last, we must say that we cannot take such a view of them. But we do not wish here to discuss European politics, we would use this pro- bability of a war to enforce upon the inhabitants of this beautiful and unprotected city the absolute and immediate necessity of pro- viding for its defence. Our readers are aware that the subject has been fully discussed in the Legislative Council. A Committee, the Chairman of which was the versatile Dr.'Douglass, and the members composed of all the "bellicore authorities" of the House, brought up a report, in which they recommended a heavily armed block-ship, to be fitted with a screw, and permanently manned with 400 sailors. The Council, alarmed at the great expense involved in the plan, rejected it, and agreed to leave the matter in the hands of the Government. The Government, ...

THE LATE ATROCIOUS MURDER NEAR YASS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

THE LATE ATROCIOUS MURDER NEAR YASS. . LAST week we furnished our readers with, a brief narrative of a murder of more than common atrocity, committed at the station of N. R. Besnard, Esq., near Yass. The report was sent to us by our resident correspondent at that village, and had it not been so fur- nished, we should have been inclined to discredit the statement it contained, as it involved facts of barbarity unexampled in tlie an- nals of this or any other country. During the time of penal dis- cipline in New South "Wales, many heartless and cold-blooded murders were committed, but the cruel state of coercion under which a considerable portion of the population lived, was in a measure a palliative for facts which under other circumstances could have found no excuse. Since the era of personal freedom in the colony-since that day when the triangles and the lash, the pillory and the stocks, were swept away from the face of this coun- try-the legitimate capabilities of the land, aided ...

OUR PORTRAIT GALLERY. WILLIAM FOSTER, ESQ., BARRISTER-AT-LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

~~ OUR PORTRAIT GALLERY. / WILLIAM FOSTER, ESQ., BARRISTER-AT-LAW. The gentleman, whose portrait accompanies this short biograpi cal notice, was born on 2Sth February, 1794, at Armidstead, near Settle, in the West Riding Yorkshire, and is consequently in Ilia' 60th year. His father, John Foster, who died about the termina- tion of the Frenchwar, was a Country Squire, and was well known, and may still be remembered, for his generous if not extravagant hospitality, which tended alike to reduce his own means, and injure tlie prospects of his family. To this latter circumstance, we doubt not, may be attributed in a great measure Mr. Foster's leaving England for this colony. Mr. Foster was a member of Trinity College, Cambridge, about 1811-12, and remained there for nearly four years ; after which he left, and got entered at Lincoln's Inn, and practised as a special pleader in London till 1827, when, with the view of practising at the bar, he accompanied Mr. Baxter to this colony, on tha...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

NE WS OF THE WEEK. AN ILLUSTRATION OF VICE IN SYDNEY.-In the afternoon of Thursday last, a cab, No. 86, drove at full speed through Lower George-street, with its roof thrown back â la barouche. Within were seated four drunken young women of abandoned character, without bonnets, their hair flowing loose about their necks, and their dresses in disarray. During the drive they shouted ont the verses of ribald song. The driver, a youtli of eighteen, was almost as intoxicated as his fare ; and a boy, who was on the box beside him, seemed the only sober one of the company. Having driven into Cumberland-street, at a furious pace, the cab was stopped op- posite the watch-house, at the request of the women, in order that they might enjoy tho spectacle of a boxing match which was going on at the time between two drunken men. They next repaired to a public-house, to feed with additional fuel the flame of. their in- toxication ; here a number of boys amused themselves with teazing the drunken wr...

SOFALA, TURON RIVER, (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 29 October 1853

SOFALA, TURON RIVER, (From our own Correspondent.) Rain has fairly set in here. It had been pouring down copiously for some time, accompanied with thunder and lightning. Judging from atmospheric appearances, a flood is by no means improbable. By some mysterious means or other, a cask of blasting powder exploded in one of our stores on Sunday morning last, which com- pletely destroyed one portion of it, and damaged a good deal of property. A person who was sleepiug in the store at the time for- tunately escaped unhurt. The report was heard at a considerable distance, and the ground and stores in the immediate neighbour- hood trembled as if with the shock of an earthquake. The store is the property of Mr. George Neale, of Penrith. October 24, 1853.

SYDNEY HORSE MARKET.—NOVEMBER 5. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

SYDNEY HORSE MARKET.-NOVEMBER 5. j Mr. C. Martyn, of the Horse Bazaar, 240, Pitt-street, reports I there has been an increased demand for almost every description of ' horse stock-during the past week, but very few sales have been ef ' fected, owing to the small supply. At no time during the last j eighteen montlis has the Sydney market been so bare of horses ; but the fall in the price of fodder and the increase of grass, will tend, no doubt, to reduce prices, and bring more horses into tho market. Good horse stock of all descriptions has been much: en- quired for, and a few first class draught horses would sell, readily at a high figure. No prices, however, can be correctly quoted for the past week, as a-safe guide to sellers. . . ' Mr. S. Wooller, of the Bull's Head Horse Repository, Geor e- ? street, reports that during the past week the sales have bean well attended, and the market for good horses has risen, with the pros- pect of being still hi :her.

MINING INTELLIGENCE. THE TURON. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

MINING INTELLIGENCE. I THE TURONI j x (From our own Correspondent.) In my first communication I mentioned that there were strong indications of a reaction in the Turon districts, which are daily be ; coming more promising. Business is rapidly improving, and we are consatntly receiving lame accessions to our population. The ! dry weather, which seems now set in, is reducing the water in the j river so considerably that the bed claims wity be rendered workable : in a short time. The quantity of gold obtained by our diggers in I the dry diggings and back creeks and tributaries- of the Turon, has i of late been more than usual, and is confirmatory of my previous j statements, that there is a large and profitable gold field in the ! ' Turon district, which will afford remunerative emyloyment to hun- dreds of our rapidly increasing population. The very favourable accounts from the sister colony has attracted Vast numbers of our diggers there, and consequently our own i>old ' fields hav...

A RARE FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 5 November 1853

A RARE FISH. i Tim engraving below is from the drawing of a fish which was exhibited in the stall of Mr. Thos. "Wilson on Saturday last. We quote from the EMPIRE of Monday \-?' We believe it is called the Talma, but why it should be named after the famous French tragedian we are at a loss to conceive. , It is precisely the shape of a truncated flat cone, or as if a well shaped bream had been cut in halves. From the square end projects a small tail, It is elegantly barred something like the perch. Besides this, there were Groper, Gurnet, so called, but which appeared to us from the peculiar dor- sal fin to belong to the family of the Salmónidas, "Rock Cod, Trumpeters, Herring Kale, lied Carp, Sea Pike very much re- sembling the fresh water Pike in shape of jaw, Ground Cod, .and the usual supply of Mullet and Snapper. If the^ harbour can supply such a variety as this, we cannot but think it would prove a very profitable speculation to fit out a boat or two with proper nets and applian...
