NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 June 1854
~r~~' NEWS OF THE WEEK. THE FITZROY DOCK.-On Monday last His Excellency the Governor-General performed the ceremony of laying the first stone of the Sill of the FitzRoy Dock at Cockatoo Island. The dimen- sions of the dock are 316 feet in length, 76 feet in breadth, with a clear opening of 60 feêt,between the piers. Over the Sill, the first stone of which'was laid oh Monday, at an average. tide, will be 20 clear feet; so that a Vessel drawing twenty feet will be enabled to float into the dock. From the dock, a tunnel has been constructed, which runs to the well of the engine house, where the water will be pumped up by two engines, each of 20 horse power. From the position of the dock there is every facility to extend its length 200 feet. The excavations may be said to be on the eve of com- pletion ; and the massive blocks of stone intended for the linings of the rock work of the dock are all ready. They present admirable specimens of masonry-the first stone of the Sill weighing 3i t...
THE LATE HOMEBUSH RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 June 1854
THE LATE HOMEBUSH RACES. Without our authority, and without our knowledge, a paragraph .was inserted at a late hour in our paper of last week which would seem to cast'some imputation on the fairness of the race for the Albert Stakes, which were won by Volunteer. For such an in- sinuation there was no ground whatsoever, the sole dispute having reference to the time at which the start should have beeu made, and concerning' only the stewards of thc race, and not the owners of the horses nor their riflers. STREET ROBBERY-About 8 o'clock on Monday evening a ge - tleman named Gardiner was accosted in George-street, by a female asking the time of night ; to whom, however, not fancying either her manner or appearance, he made no reply. He passed one way, and she another. In about a quarter of an hour Mr. Gardiner missed his watch, and has no doubt whatever that the lady who ad. dressed him is the person who stole ir,-thc guard being a very ' slight silk it could hp easily cut or broken.
SUNDAY SCENE AT THE OAKENVILLE CREEK DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 June 1854
SUNDAY SCENE AT THE OAKENVILLE CREEK DIGGINGS. The illustration represents a scene of very frequent occurrence at these diggings. A stray clergyman is performing divine service in the open air to an attentive audience, among which may be per- ceived a sprinkling of native blacks. While the parson is perhaps settling dialectically some knotty point of controversy, two men in tile back ground are settling pugilistically some old -quarrel or disputed claim. For such affairs, indeed, Sunday is set apartas the regular settling day-especially during the absence of the efficient Commissioner, Mr. King. ,'-?.«
ORIGINAL POETRY. "BELIEF IN DEATH IS THE FELL SUPERSTITION." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 June 1854
ORIGINAL POETRY. ? "«'BELIEF IN DEATH IS THE FELL SUPERSTITION.", There is high jubilee in vaulted Heaven. 'Each angel has put on his whitest robe, -And deck'd his bright face in its sunniest smile. Hark ! the loud joy has shaken Paradise : 'Welcoming from the realms of mortal woe A virgin innocence, a stainless maiden. 'Oh, wherefore do we most perversely weep, And wear a sable sorrow'as our garb, And peer and grope amongst the dusky graves, 'When we should look to Heaven, our darling's home, -And tune our spirits and exulting tongues In unison with the celestial joy ? - There was no sorrow in her parting smile. It was a radiant reflexion caught From the bright face of Immortality, Who even then was stooping down to kiss her. 0 dear, dear love ! mine own unwedded bride i Now art thou mine; for ever art thou mine, As fair as when I won thy girlish troth. 1 shall not see the iron-handed Time Write his slow characters upon thy face, , And blot its shining beauties one by one. Kind Dea...
WINDSOR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 June 1854
WINDSOR. I THE BUTCHERING TRADE.-On Friday week last, the price of mut on in town.suddenly fell from, sixpence per lb. to threepence (a hundred per cent, decline.) , This.was occasioned by one of our townsmen having a flock of sheep, which the butchers refused purchasing at a price commensurate willi their prolits in retailin/; and thereupon the spirited proprietor, took measures for their im- mediate slaughter. and sale, at the moderate race we have named. It may well be imagined that by this act the ire of the butchers in town was raised to uncontrollable bounds , and on Saturday, we were amused-and no doubt the humble clas:es were well pleased -at. the old butchers, in a spirit of opposition, bringing down . their mutton to 2d. per.lb! Quite, a ferment was created in town in consequence,.and nearly every-one, rich, and poor, availed them- selves pf .the clash, in interestof the mutton -trade, by each carry-' ing home one or. more whole sheep. We only- trustthe chance may I ist, t...
REVIEW. COLLIER'S ANCIENT MANUSCRIPT CORRECTIONS TO THE TEXT OF SHAKESPEARE'S PLAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 June 1854
REVIEW. COLLIER'S ANCIENT MANUSCRIPT CORRECTIONS TO THE TEXT OF SHAKESPEARE'S PLAYS. (Continued from page 89.,) A very happy emendation, and one that carries conviction of its propriety, on the face of it, occurs in a passage from the Taming of the Shrew, where Tranio, is deprecating too close an application to study on the part of Lucentio. It is in the second speech in the Play. " Only, good master, while we do admire This virtue, and this moral discipline, Lets' be no stoics, nor no stocks, I pray ; Or so devote to Aristotle's checks, As Ovid be an outcast quite abjur'd." " Aristotle's checks," says Stevens, " are I suppose the harsh rules of Aristotle];" whilst Malone explains " Aristotle's checks" tobe "suchas tend to check and restrain the indulgence of the pas- sions." Mr. Justice Blackstone suspected a misprint, and hap- pily hit upon the l'ight emendation, but his authority was insuffi- cient to displace the old reading. In the emended folio we read " Lets' be no stoics, no...

AUSTRALIAN HONEY-EATER. (Melithereptus) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 June 1854
AUSTRALIAN HONEY-EATER. CMi-nthreptas J -J In passing through-the flowery scrubs in the nci¡.'hbourhnod"of Sydney, our attention is often attracted by the active and busv movements of!-the MeUphivin or honey-eater, and an. amusing aiu^ interesting illustration of the irresistible farce of instinct has re- cently come under, ow notice, by which birds are sometimos im- pelled, even st the risk of their lives, to fulfil the objects of their peculiar mode ol' life. During the summer months, a reverend gentleman, who has contributed largely to our knowledge of the natural history of this colony, was journeying from Hunter's Hill to Lane Cove, and on approaching a steep declivity, wh'ch it is necessary to descend in order to cross a creek, he was surprised to observe that a pair o!' these little honey-esters wore hoverin«-; round tlie horse on which he rode, and every now and then apparently endeavouring to settle cither upon himself or thc horse. He dis- mounted, as was his custom, to wa...

MISCELLANEA. THE POLICE WITH COOK AND THE HOUSEMAID.-In the Marylebone County Court, London, Ann Page, formerly house- maid in the service of Miss Spence, sued for 19s. 6d. as wages owing, and £1 15s. for wages in lieu of warning. " I suppose, my lord," said the plaintiff, "I must tell you why I left. On Christ- mas-eve, a friend called to see me, and as we had a party up-stairs I thought there was no harm in keeping my friend down stairs. "Well, about half-past twelve o'clock at night, Miss Spence ac- tually came down stairs into the kitchen, and found my frjend in the dark-(laughter), and made a great piece of work. (Laughter.) In the morning' the cook and me were discharged without warning^ I was offered the wages due." Miss Spence: Now, tell the judge how many policemen you had in our house to supper? Ann Page : I had only one, the other policeman was the cook's, not mine. (Laughter.) Miss Spence : Were not two policemen supping off our mutton in the middle of the night ? (Laugh...
