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

THE AUSTRALIAN PROPELLER. The Peninsular and Oriental Company have given this inven- tion a trial in their new vessel, the Manilla, which propelled by the Bomerang is the first vessel to convey troops to Constantinople for the defence of the Ottoman Empire, as appears by the Times of the 17th and 23rd February last.   " The Peninsular and Oriental Company's new screw steamer Manilla (under orders for Government service), went out on a trial trip yesterday. This vessel is of 638 tons burden, was built by Mare and Co., of Blackwall, and has been fitted with engines of 60 horse power by Messrs. Somers, Day, and Baldock, of Nor- tham Works, near Southampton. Same interest was attached to this trial, from the fact that the Manilla is supplied with a Bome- rang Propeller, and, although there was no opportunity of com- paring its merits with those of the common screw, yet the result obtained was a most favourable one. From the fact of the opening in the stern of the vessel bei...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 June 1854

NEWS OF THE WEEK. ATTEMPTED HOUSE ROBBERY.-Between th« hours of seven? and nine on Sunday evening an unsuccessful attempt was felo : niously made to enter the dwelling ,of Mrs. Harris^ situated in I William-street, Woolloomooloo. On the1 return of the family about nine o'clock, they found in the door a'key, which after con ¡ siderable difficulty they extracted. It was a skeleton key made of j such soft material that, instead of turning'the lock it yielded to the strength of the bolt; The rascals, no doubt, finding themselves deceived' in their implement, thought it safer to-leave it in the lock than to run the risfc of detection by waiting, to- take it out. BODY' FOUND DROWNED.-Yesterday morning; as Mr. Sub Inspector Ferris and' his- Boat's crew .were passing; Billy Blue's Point', they observed somethhigvunusual floating in the water, and, upon closer examination', they observed it was a human body. Un- der the orders of Mr. Ferris, the body was immediately secured by ropes and towe...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. THE TURON. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 June 1854

I". . . MINING INTELLIGENCE. I . THE TURON. I (From ottr own CorreápoiideM.) So little has appeared of late in the columns of the metropolitan journals relative to the gold fields, that some of the incredulous inhabitants of Sydney may be almost inclined to doubt their exist- ence. It must riot, however, be supposed that because so little hw appeared concerning them; ergo they are sinking into insig- nificance, or that our auriferous resources are becoming exhausted. The want of population is, and hitherto has "been, the great draw- back to the' prosperity of the gold fields, and judging from present -appearances, we are not likely to have an accession to our num- bers, at least for some months to come. But notwithstanding this difficulty, we are upon the whole decidedly progressing. Our diggers, are satisfied with their average earnings, and what may be considered an indubitable sign of success, few are grumbling. On various points of .the river, sluicing parties, composed principa...

IMPORTANT TO ADVERTISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 June 1854

IMPORTANT TO ADVERTISERS. THE attention of advertisers is respectfully called to the following 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 3000 copies weekly, in Town and Country, and in the adjacent colonies of Victoria, South Australia, Van Diemen's Land, and New Zealand, it manifestly offers a very desirable medium of communi- cation to advertisers. Eight lines .end under-per line .- - - 6d. . Every additional line ------ 2d. jggp" All advertisements tohave the nnmber of insertions marked on them, or they will be continued till countermanded. '

FINE ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 June 1854

FINE ARTS. : We have derived much pleasure from a visit to the studio of Mr. Woolner in Hunter-street, whose very striking medallion of Mr. Wentworth has been already noticed in the Illus- trated Sydney News. Amongst the medallions which we inspected were likenesses of some of the first men in the country, execitted all of them with the utmost fidelity of outline and feature, and manifesting an insight into individual character and expression which only genius can possess and give effect to. A portrait of Sir Charles Nicholson, Speaker of the Legislative Council, is won- derfully like : the sagacious look of the bright and piercing eye is given to the life. The massive head of Edward Hamilton, Esq., will be easily recognised by his friends, and will suggest, no donbt, the ponderous sledgehammer of his logic. We noticed also the delicate features of Mr. Fanning, which seem animated with the very spirit of taste and refinement. We may add a medallion of James Martin, Esq., M. L, C., w...

REVIEW. NOTES' AND EMENDATIONS TO THE TEXT OF SHAKESPEARE'S PLAYS, from early manuscript corrections in a copy of the Folio, 1632, in the possession of J. PAYNE COL- LIER, ESQ., F. S. A. Second Edition. 1 vol. 8vo. London : 1853. ' THIS is a very remarkable book, and, if we mistake not, those of our readers who are Shakespearian students, and have not seen the volume, will feel themselves highly indebted to us for bringing it under their notice, lt is not saying too much, to'affirm, that, after the lapse of upwards of two centimes, the genuine text of the " prince of poets " is, in numerous instances, placed before us for the first time by these "emendations." The alterations in many cases flash upon the mind with the conviction of truth, and in the judgment of plain common sense leave rio room to doubt that we have here restored to us the Veritable language used by Shake- speare. The circumstances attendant upon the discovery of this literary gold mine, are curious and deserving of...
