THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 27 May 1854

THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY. Wednesday, being the Queen's thirty-fifth birthday, was observed in th« usual loyal manner by the citizens of Sydney. The bank j and government offices were all closed, as were also the shops throughout the city with hardly an exception. The entire popu- lation seemed bent on pleasure and festivity, and to these genial intentions the lovely weather was most propitious. At 12 o'clock, the usual military review took place in the domain, in the presence of a largo concourse of spectators. The troops went through their evolutions with great precision, and showed by their efFeetire state of discipline, that they are well able to maintain on £ sterner field the honour of that sovereign whose birthday they were celebrating. At one o'clock, his Excellency the Govemor-Gener.il held the customary Levee at Government House, which was most nume- rously attended. The North Shore Regatta came off with great ccUit, the utmost interest beinir excited by some bf the contests. T...

THE NAVAL FORCES OF THE COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 27 May 1854

THE NAVAL FORCES OF THE COUNTRY. IN the present state of affairs abroad, it becomes a matter of general interest to the people of this country to ascer- tain, as far as possible, the condition of the effective naval forces at our disposal ; and, from the increased activity which has been visible for some time past in the dockyards, we have no doubt that the Admiralty will be prepared to meet with the utmost promptitude all the demands which may he made upon the service. We understand that it is the intention of the Government to raise the number of seamen and marines for the current year to 53,500 men, which is an increase of about 8000 on the number voted for last year, and a further addition to the 5000 men raised under the orders of Lord Derby's administration. The total increase in the navy since 1852 may therefore be stated at about 13,000 men. Of the force now to be raised for the service of the fleet, 38,000 will be seamen and boys, and 15,500 marines. The unabated demand for...

HOW MR. VANSITTART IMPALED HIMSELF ON THE HORNS OF A MATRIMONIAL DILEMMA, AND HOW I RELIEVED HIM FROM HIS FIX. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 27 May 1854

HOW MR. VANSITTART IMPALED HIMSELF ON THE HORNS OF A MATRIMONIAL DILEMMA, AND HOW I RELIEVED HIM FROM HIS FIX. It was about eight o'clock in the evening, and I reclined in an easy chair before a blazing fire in my sitting-room in Macquarie street. It was the close of the month of May; and the even- ings were chilly. I was alone, for I have neither wife nor children. I am a bachelor,-though, thank heaven ! not yet an old one. Why-ah ! why does not some nice young woman with a thousand a year take me under her protection ? I promise her that I will .spend.it with the greatest possible ease. I had arrived at my fifth or sixth glass of Harvie's best claret I held the wine between my eye and the candlelight, and, admiring its rosy hue, sipped again and again, with an occasional smack of the lips not to be sup- pressed. " What a capital fellow this Harvie is," thought I, to have such excellent wine ! " I drank a couple of glasses more, and I declared emphatically and aloud, although I was...

THE NEWCOMES.--No. 3, CHAPTER IX.-MISS HONEYMAN'S' In Steyne Gardens, Brighton, the lodging-houses are among the most frequented in that city of lodging-houses. These mansions have bow-windows in front, bulging out with gentle prominences,, and ornamented with neat verandahs, from which you can behold the tide of human kind as it flows up and' down the Steyne, and that blue ocean over which Britannia is said' to rule, stretching brightly away eastward and westward^ The chain-pier, as^every body knowsr runs intrepidly into the sea, which sometimes, in fine weather, bathes its feet with laughing wavelets, and anon, on stormy days, dashes over its sides with roaring, foam. Here, for the sum of two pence, you can go out to sea and pace this vast" deck without need of a steward with a basin. You can watch the-sun setting in splendour over Worthing, or illuminating with its rising glories the ups and downs of Rottingdean. You see the citizen with his fa- mily inveigled into the shallops o...

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. SATURDAY, MAY 27, 1854. THE MONDAY MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 27 May 1854

SATURDAY, MAY 27, 1854. THE MONDAY MEETING. THE public meeting held in York-street on Monday last was a spectacle on the whole most creditable to our city and gratifying to «very true Englishman whom it contains. The large assemblage, manifold in party but one in sentiment, showed that Englishmen, when they leave their native for a foreign land, bring with them the noblest characteristics of their race. We have seen how, in England, the present juncture has united all parties-Whigs, Tories, Conservatives, and Radicals-and brought them to bear upon a consistent and harmonious policy. And it has been re- j marked before now that one great element of the strength of Eng- land consists in this power of union and sympathetic combination --in this unanimous forgetfulness and repression of différences in the face of a common danger.. The citizens of Sydney, then, showed on Monday that they were true to the instincts and tradi- tions of their countrymen; and, they also proved, what their br...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 27 May 1854

i MISCELLANEA. NEW GREAT SHIP.-The Marlborough, 131, screw, is rapidly being built at Portsmouth. This immense structure may truly be called the " Great Marlborough." Every day tells upon her, as she becomes planked, in discovering1 at once her beautiful mould. Her run and counter are particularly handsome; her bow suffi- ciently sharp, with the least hollow ; and, although so handsome, she is of enormous strength. The science of the day has been brought into requisition. Her sides-taking the outer and innet planking with the timbers-are nearly two feet seven inches in thickness. She is also tied together with diagonal iron braces* besides the iron stringing. Altogether she will be the largest, the handsomest, and the most; powerful man-of-war that this or any other country has ever built, being at least 400 tons larger than the Duke of Wellington. A NEW ''SHOT.-In Sweden a new religious sect has sprung up, called Contemplators, because they believe that in meditating in- cessantly ...

THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 27 May 1854

THE WAR. I WE, of the present generation, have been accustomed to look on an European war of nations as a-thing wholly of the past'-a thing which had gone out along with pigtails and powder and the slow locomotion of stage coaches-, and which no more than they could be expected to arise and assume form and substance again for our dis- comfort and. annoyance. We had consigned it to the re- gion of romance, and regarded it n*erely as a subject to furnish forth sortie of our most popular novels. Our latest .triumphs of Trafalgar and Waterloo, while the reflection that they were won by our countrymen made our hearts throb with pride, were ranked historically almost with the battles of Salamis' and Plataea. They were no more to be re-enacted-no more to exercise any direct influence over us of the present day-than those renowned victories of the old Greeks. It is, accordingly, with wonder and amazement that we find ourselves, by a cause utterly insig- nificant and yet wholly irresistible,...
