THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AUSTRALIA. SATURDAY, JUNE 10, 1854. THE ELECTIONEERING PUZZLE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 June 1854

SATURDAY, .TUNE 10, 1S54. THE ELECTIONEERING PUZZLE. THE eccentric election for the County of Stanley is hy this time decided, and decided we have no doubt in favor of Air. Hodgson. Our readers will remember that, through some oversight or de- linquency, no poll was taken in the iivst instance at Drayton, where accordingly a separate poll was appointed to take place on the 23rd of last month. The result of that poll shows a return of twelve votes for Mr. Hodgson and three for Dr. Lang-, and, as at the two other polling places the reverend gentleman had gained a ma- jority of nine, it follows that on the gross poll the candidates have each an equal number of votes. The casting vote of the Return- ing Officer has ere thfcbeen thrown into one of the evenly balanced scales, and it is generally believed that Mr. Hodgson is now a member of the Legislative Council. Upon this result, even thougn it be not final, we congratulate the country. We have not the pleasure of knowing Mr. Hodgson or...

ARREST OF A RUNAWAY GIRL IN MALE ATTIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 June 1854

ARREST OF A RUNAWAY GIRL IN MALE ATTIRE. About three weeks ago a girl 14 years of age, nam erl Eliza Ann Peacock, or Smithers, as she occasionally called herself, suddenly disappeared from the horne of a family who had adopted her, living in Philadelphia, and for some time their efforts to ascertain whither slie had gone were fruitless. Recently, however, she was traced to this city, and advertisements were inserted in several of the papers, announcing her sudden disappearance, and offering' a reward of 25 dollars for her apprehension. From information recently received at the Chief's Office, Officer Worley on Wednesday succeeded in discovering and arresting the truant. She was found in the hosiery store of Richard Venables, No. 132, Canal-street, dressed in male attire, and doing a clerk's duty behind the counter at a salary of 2k dollars per week. Her dress was neat, and she looked like a smart active boy, and Mr. V. felt well satisfied with the manner in which she waited upon his...

AN INTERVIEW WITH SIR CHARLES HOTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 June 1854

AN INTERVIEW WITH SIR CHARLES HOTHAM... Having ascertained- last' November that Sir Charles Hotham, was appointed Lieutenant-Governor of the colony of Victoria, I went up to London for the purpose of asking a particular favour from.him.. On my arrival in London I" was told, that it was almost impossible to see him, for that he was' overwhelmed with business consequent upon his ? appointment ;- and'that moreover,, he was'not'often in town, -being a frequent" visitor in Oxfordshire, where the lady who now shares his title resided. However, I went to his hotel in St. James's-street, where he made his head' quarters, and ¡there learnt that he had'just arrived in town, and was to be found at his brother's, Lord Hill, Hill street, Berkeley-square. I hurried-there, and in .answer to-my demand to see Sir Charles, an old grey-headed ser- vitor informed me that he was afraid I-should not-be able to see him-;- that he was-besieged with people calling, 'and that it was impossible to say. what h...

Anxious to relieve, as far as possible, the uneasiness which , the contemplation of an approaching ?

GATHERING. AND PRESERVING APPLES FOR CIDER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 10 June 1854

GATHERING. AND PRESERVING APPLES FOR CIDER. The fruit should, if possible,, be gathered in finé weather,, in order that it may be dry, when brought in. The time of gathering varies from the end of August to the end of November, Recording to the varieties and the locality.. Before gathering, the fruit should have arrived at a proper degree of maturity. This may be known, especially in j early varieties, by the smell, by the colouring of the seeds,, and also when the weather is calm by finding fallen fruit which is neither wormy nor in any way imperfect. The fruit is detachedly shaking the branches, either by getting up in the tree or by means of a hook. Poles should be employed as little as possible, and with, gr.eat care, because they break and destroy the fruit spurs.. It is advantage- ous to keep each sort of apple separate,, in order to be able to mix them, so as to produce the best quality of cider. It is of the greatest importance to shelter the apples for if left out of doors,...

THE NEWCOMES.-No. 4.' CHAPTER X.-ETHEL AND HER RELATIONS. For four-and-twenty successive hours Lady Ann Newcome was perfectly in raptures with her new lodgings, and every person and thing which they contained. The drawing-rooms were fitted with the greatest taste : the dinner was exquisite. Were there ever such delicious veal cutlets, such verdant French beans ? " Why do we have those odious French cooks, my dear, with their shocking principles-the principles of all Frenchmen are shocking-and the dreadful bills they bring us in ; and their consequential airs' and graces ? I am determined to part with Brignol. I have written to your father this evening to ¿jive Brignol warning. When did he ever give us veal cutlets ? What can be nicer ?

LATER ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 June 1854

LATER ENGLISH NEWS.. j By the arrival of the Walter Hood, on the 12th instant, we have three days later intelligence from Europe. Prussia had refused to join the alliance of the Western Powers, proclaiming her resolu- tion to preserve an attitude of strict neutrality. This course on the part of Prussia is to Austria, if she is sincere, a cause of con- siderable embarassment, and, if she be not, a source of secret congratulation Further proposals had reached Vienna from St. Petersburg, in no wise more favourable than the antecedents. Reports were current at Vienna that the Russians were retiring from Kalafat. Lord John Russell was seriously indisposed, and unable to take his place in the House of Commons. On the 12th of March, Her Majesty's yacht, with the Queen and the Royal Family on board passed through the Fleet at Spit head on its way to Osborne. It was expected that on the follow- ing day the Fleet would be regularly reviewed by the Queen. SPAIN. M. Isturitz has been summoned b...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 June 1854

VICTORIA. Our intelligence from Victoria is to the I2th.instant. The Melbourne people seem to be wholly engrossed by thc pre- parations for the reception of Sir Charles Hotham. A triumphal arch has been erected, bearing the inscription " Victoria welcomes Victoria's choice," the interpretation of which ambiguous words i has given rise to some discussion and some pleasantry. The first turf of the Williamstown and Melbourne Railway was , to have been turned on the 12tli instant. The following extracts are from the Argus :- i The proposition for founding a " Victorian Institnte for the ad- vancement of Science" has been so far favorably received, that more than forty gentlemen have communicated to the promoters their desire to take paît in the undertaking. Circulars have been addressed to them and to some others, inviting them to a prelimi- nary meeting on Thursday next, for the purpose of framing the outline of* a Constitution, and of appointing a committee to make minor rules, and ot...

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. AEDVANCE AUSTRALIA. SATURDAY, JUNE 17, 1854. ONE OF OUR WANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 June 1854

SATURDAY, JUNE 17, 1854. ONE OF OUR WANTS. WE want a good many things in Sydney ; hut what we want per- haps most of ail are homes. By a man's home may be taken to mean in the first place, if not an entire house, at least apartments to himself; and, in the second place and mainly, a wife to put in those apartments and to preside over them. The first may be re- garded as the gross .external shell or material body of a home : the second, as the line inner life and animating soul. A home, indeed, without a wi ia would be a greater anomaly than a garden without a rose, or a sony- without ah accompaniment, or a gallery of pic- tures without, a Venus, or a park without a stream, or a crown without a jewel, or anything else you please without its chief or- nament and essential appendage. About children we say nothing here, because they follow of themselves. From what we have said it will be clear that numbers of men in Sydney, if they were to set about establishing homes for themselves, wo...
