PRODUCE OF THE NORTHERN DIGGINGS. (From the Maitland Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 June 1854

PRODUCE OF THE NORTHERN DIGGING'S! (Frnm thc Mailland Mercury.) From information wc Have obtained by letter, from mercantile houses at Tamworth and' Armidale, we are enabled to add to the information already published, as to the gold forwarded to Sydney and Maitland from the Northern Diggings, since the escort ceased on the 26th December last, althouß-h we are still deficient of in- formation as to the gold sent down by smaller buyers, or taken direct to Sydney by individual diggers. As we published in the Mercury of the 11th of March, the- quantity we had then ascer- tained to have been sent down, since the 2ßth December, was 13,000 ounces; we have now to add to that amount 776 ounces, sent by an Armidale house' during that period, above the quantity we gave them credit for in that statement. In the Mercury of the 13th instant, we mentioned that Messrs. D. Cohen and Co., of Maitland', had passed' credit in their books to different parties, from the 9th March to tlie I Ith May. for ...

FASHIONS FOR MARCH. (From the French Correspondent of the Ladies Magazine.) Boulevard des Italiens, February 25th 1854. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 June 1854

FASHIONS. FOR MÁRCH. . - \ (From the French Correspondent of the Ladies Magazine.) Boulevard des Italiens, February 25tli, 1854. CHERE AMIE-^-TIIB Parisian season preceding that of London enables the modistes of the latter who have tact and talent to cull the prettiest and most elegant novelties, for to Paris alone belongs the honour of holding tile pre-eminence in the world of fashion ; and the Court has lately afforded every opportunity, by its recep- tions and balls, for display in the richest requirements of the toilette. Velvets, Moires, brocades, have been ornamented with the most expansive laces in blonds, guipures, often almost covering the skirt with flounces, having berthes to correspond, whilst in the lighter materials for young ladies more simplicity is called for. The- triple skirts of tulle are made wider than ever, the bodies either in drapery with small bouquet of flowers in the contre, or with revets encircling the shoulders and back, but descending in front to the ...

Y o UNG' AUSTRAL IA'. ;. .' . . L THE country has, through, the medium of its press; ratified the opinions which the city pronounced on Monday week in reference to the Russian war, and, in regard to the I ' fatherland, has reechoed every expression pf sympathy and attachment. But one sentiment per y actes- New .South Wales, which is as united on the. subject in question, as England itself. This is only 'what we had anticipated. We had no reason to suppose that the denizens, of the in- terior were not as good Englishmen as the inhabitants of the town,-that their instincts were not as . true, their jealousy of British honour as lively, and their devotion to the British Crown as fervid. Thé Rev; Dr. Lang. there- fore continues in coventry : he lias placed, himself out- side the circle of the sympathies of his country- men.

THE HOMEBUSH RACES. WEDNESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 June 1854

THE HOMEBUSH RACES. . , . WEDNESDAY. Wednesday was the 'first day of this annual meeting. The weather was rather cold, and rain fell at intervals throughout the day, but not in;sufficient quantity to damp tho ardour of Austra- lian sportsmen. The attendance was numerous, and the racing was very good, and seemed to give general satisfaction. His Excellency the Governor-General arrived on the course a few minutes past 12, attended by George Fitz Roy, Esq. ; J. R. Holden Esq, ; J. W. Campbell, the steward ; and S. Samuel, Esq., the clerk of the course. A large number of gentlemen who take an interest in sporting allah's were also present, among whom were several Indian officers. A considerable amount of monev changed hands upon the various events, particularly the first, in which the knowing ones in racing lore were completely deceived, the winner having been regarded quite as an outsider. .. .

"DELVIN" REILLY, THE DUELLIST. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 June 1854

" DELVIN " REILLY, THE DUELLIST. In the year 1761, and for many after years, there existed in Dublin a public garden, the resort of the fashionable world at that period, called Marlborough-green. It occupied the ground on which Lower Gardiner-street, and, I believe, part of Beresford place now stand. In that year there arrived in Dublin, on a visit to his family, a Captain O'Reilly, of a cavalry regiment in tho Austrian service. ., "Walking one day in the garden of Marlborough green, in company with some ladies, a gentleman passed, in uni- . form, I think, fgr he was a cavalry officer,-whose spur caught the dress of one of the ladies, and tore it. The offender apologised, and each party continued their promenade. When they met again, a similar circumstance occurred. O'Reilly, now becoming angry, used some strong expressions, which were haughtily replied to, ac- companied by a challenge to decide the matter on the spot. .They stepped accordingly,into the Green, and drew. O'Reilly had...

THE NEWCOMES.—No. 3. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 June 1854

THE NEWCOMES.-No. 3. If some of the surrounding lodging-house keepers, as I have no doubt tliey did, disliked the little Duchess for the airs which she gave herself, as they averred ; they must have envied her too her superior prosperity, for there was scarcely ever a card in her win- dow, whilst those ensigns in her neighbours' houses would remain exposed to the flies and to the weather, and disregarded by passers by for months together. . She had many regular customers, or what should be rather called constant friends. Deaf old Mr. Cricklade came every winter for fourteen years, and stopped until the hunting was over ; an invaluable man, giving very little trouble, passing all day on horseback, and all night over his rubber at the club. The Misses Barkham, Barkhambury, Tunbridge Wells, whose father had been at college with Mr. Honeyman, came regu- larly in June for sea air, letting Barkhambury for the summer sea- son, Then, for many years, she had her nephew as we have seen ; and ...

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AUSTRALIA. SATURDAY, JUNE 3, 1854. OUR STREETS AND SEWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 June 1854

SATURDAY, JUNE 3, 1854. OUR STREETS AND SEWERS. WINTER has come upon us, hurling his rain at us from the sky, and finds us about as well prepared to sustain his assaults as we were this time last year. Our roads and streets are still unrepaired, and our footways still lie in chaotic ruin. Still the frequent pool before the hall door submerges fair ankles, and invites the interesting' babyhood of Sydney to "launch their paper navies on its breast." With wet above and around, and wet and dirt below,- the way of the pedestrian is indeed dreary. For this state of things, if he pleases, we must say that he lias a perfect right greatly to blame the City Commissioners. These gentlemen have been now five months in office, and what they have actually done in that time, if we leave promises out of the question, we are really puzzled to dis- , - cover. We are ready to make them every allowance-including their pecuniary one-but we consider that they in return should make some allowance for the ...

Sir,-The news from Spring Creek, no doubt, are becoming in- teresting to the readers in Sydney. I- shall briefly recount the great doings that took place iu honour' of the Queen's Birthday. On Tuesday .evening last, Mr. Neuber, of the Beechworth Hotel, entertained the whole of the people at Beechworth, at his own cost, to a dinner, and I must confess the table weuld have done honour to any country; the vanes and Champagne were excellent, and the evening was concluded with a Ball, .which was kept up until morning. " On with the dance, let joy be unconfined. No sleep till morn, when youth and pleasure meet To chase the dying hours with flying feet." Yesterday morning at lia. m., there was a grand Review at the Camp, after which the Races commenced', a programme of which I annex ; and in the evening, the officers of the Beechworth Camp entertained a select few to a s...

TREATMENT OF NEGROES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 June 1854

TREATMENT OF NEGROES. I THE only instance of very severe corporal punishment of a riegrc that I witnessed at the South occurred on this estate. F suppose; however, that equally severe punishment is common ; in fact, it must be necessary, to sustàin adéquate discipline on every large .plantation. The manner Of the overseer who inflicted the punish- ment, and his subsequent conversation with me about it, in'dicated that it was a commonplace occurrence to him. The overseer was shewing me his plantation. In. going from One part to the other we had twice crossed a deep gully, in the bottom of which was à thick covert of brushwood. We were crossing it a third time, and had nearly passed through the bush, when the overseer suddenly stopped his horse, exclaiming,. " "What's that ? Hallo! who are you there? A negro girl was lying at full length on the ground at the bottom of the gully,-evidently intending to hide herself from us in the bushes. "Who areyou there*? " " Sam's Sall, sir." " What...

A flOLOUMD MAN'S REPLY TO JOHN MITCHELL- 1 TO JOHN MITCHEL, ESQ. SIR-The following language used by you in the second num- ber of your paper surprises me ; I cannot comprehend it : " We deny that it is a crime, or a wrong, or even' a peccadillo, to hold slaves, to buy slaves, to keep slaves to their work hy flog- ging, or other needful coercion. For our part we wish,we had s good plantation well stocked with healthy negroes; in Alabama, * * - * * * . Taught as I have been to regard the oppression of man in any form as something more than a mere peccadillo, or a wrong, wheth- er in Ireland or America, black or white, and - that ol the American bondman a crime of deepest dye, I beg for myself and those from whom I have been thus taught, that you will more fully enlighten us upon a matter so long regarded by us as of such vital importance, but which, perchance, we may have misunderstood. You say you saw enough of slavery at home to engage all your sympa'hies and energies when there ; a...

A CONVICT'S HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 3 June 1854

A CONVICT'S HISTORY. In our summary of English news a week or two back, we briefly noticed the examination of a man named Villiers Pearce, charged with being a convict at large before the expiration of his sentence. The following distressing narrative of his history is given in a London paper:—Seven years ago, the unfortunate accused was   convicted of forging the signature of the Marchioness of Queens- berry to a cheque which he presented for payment at Messrs. Coutts' Bank, where he was given in charge, the forgery being at once detected, and he was ordered to be transported for ten years. Five months ago he came to London, and was living in obscurity with his children, when, through some family dispute, his hiding place was made known to Sir Richard Mayne, the Commissioner of Police, and he was apprehended. When brought up, the pri- soner said—"At the period of the offence for which I was con-   victed, I was in the most acute pecuniary distress, with a ...

This laity and gentleman hav3 acted, we believe, successfully in London and Dublin, and have received considerable praise in the American papers.
