LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. TUESDAY, JUNE 20, 1854. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 June 1854
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.. TUESDAY,.JUNE 20, 1854. The Speaker took the chair at half-past three o'clock. A message from the Governor-General was read. In answer to a question by Mr. Campbell, relative'to&lt; an. expe- dition in search of Leichardt, the Colonial Secretary stated that lie deemed it quite impossible that the Government should fit ont any such expedition. Mr. Holroyd asked a question relative to the case of Patrick Malbny, who was convicted at last Bathurst Assizes, but on the recommendation- of the Judges had been pardoned. The pardon, he understood, had not yet been sent in. , The Colonial Secretary explained that the delay which had oc- curred arose from circumstances of a merely formal character. The Colonial Secretary laid on the table several returns and reports, which were ordered to be printed. Dr. Douglass, in introducing his motion for the repealof the present Immigration Act, expatiated at considerable length on the importance of the subject, inveighing l...
THE BEARD AND MOUSTACHE MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 June 1854
I THE BEARD AND MOUSTACHE MOVEMENT. ENGLAND is a conservative country in more respects than one. It loves-that which is old. An old church, an old ruin,, an old tree, an old custom, all receivé popular homage. An old law, even although it be very bad and oppressive, attracts to itself a certain kind of reverence, and is never.repealed .until after long and wearisome in- vestigations. The English preserve their fashions in the same obstinate manner. They will not suffer themselves to be blown about by every breàth of caprice, even although the matter be no more serious than one of taste. Yet, as a people, we are by no means deficient in a love of novelty ; but it is only a certain kind of novelty which is successful, one which blows lightly and pleasantly, as a breeze upon the surface of society, but which is seldom able to pene- trate into the bones and marrow of the inner life. A Mrs. Hayden may set our tables turning, and turn weak heads at the same time by the mysteries of spirit...
THE LITTLE ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 June 1854
THE LITTLE ISLAND. À fine man is the Russian Tsar His fine legs finely booted are, And with them he was boldly mar- ching into Turkey : Then fancy how he fum'd and frown'd, And threw terrific scowls around, When right across his path he found The little Island Í He.smoath'd his face as best he could, And tried at first the wheedling mood, Vowing 'twas only Turkey's good That he intended : " You won't obstruct me now you know My fair designs, but let me go On to Constantinople-" "No!" Said the little Island, His grey moustache he fiercely curl'd, Swore lie was lord of all the world, And frightful imprecations hurl'd ' Gainst such presumption : " I'll bring down straight my Cossack crew, And they shall sack and pillage you, And murder all before them-" "Pooh !" Said the little Island» The Tsar rais'd one enormous foot, Cas'd in its more enormous boot, With a kick threat'ning to salute The pigmy jester But, fix'd with sudden lear, he stood In that ridiculous attitude, Such wrath he saw...
LATER EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 June 1854
LATER EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. By the Golden Era and the Admiral Boxer, which arrived in. Melbourne on the 13th* instant; we have news from Europe to th». 17th of March. The first division of the Baltic Fleet had sailed; under Sir Charles Napier. The remainder . of the ships were to join it in Wingoe Souud. The preparations of Russia, military and naval; were most active. Mr. Justice Talfourd, the author of Ton, died suddenly of appo plexy on. the 18th of March. At the time of the seizure, he was charging the Grand Jury at the opening of the assizes at Stafford, and died almost before he was removed from the Bench. A monster meeting in reference to the wages movement had been held at Hoghton,- in Lancashire. In the House of Commons,.oh the 13th of March, a debate took place relative to the appointment of Mr. Hunry Stonore tobe puisne judge at Melbourne, who, it seems, had been reported' against for bribery by a Committee of the House. The matter - dropped withoutany definite result.
ORIGINAL POETRY. GARIBALDI'S WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 June 1854
ORIGINAL POETRY. ' - ... I GARIBALDI'S WIFE. j In a lonely skiff a warrior sat, upon the open sea, And o'er his folded arms his head was bow'd dejectedly, And in his eye-which, when in fight of brave men he was chief, Flash'd terror on the foe-was fix'd a stern, indignant grief. , High hopes had had that warrior, and aspirations grand : . With manly mind he had brooded o'er the thraldom of his land, _ And his heart was wrung with sorrow, and his soul 'fill'd with disdain, ' And lie vow'd to Heaven and Heaven's God to break her slavish chain. . ? . ' No wonder he w?.s tristful then, that chief of heart so high ! His hopes had melted all as melt mists in the morning sky ; For might had triumph'd over right, and 'those that would be free Had their manacles re-riveted by the serfs of tyranny ; And home-bred knaves and foreign slaves had struck hi^country down, : . ' When rising in the majesty of all her old renown. * His bosom heav'd, and his despairing grief began to swell In billowy f...
YARRA-STREET GEELONG. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 June 1854
YARllA-STÍtEET GEELONG. ine illustration in the trout page is from a sketch taken in 1853 by a lady who lias had the kindness to forward it to>us. Looking down the street, the market square is seen on the left hand ; iii the distance rise the You Yang Mountains, underneath which lie'the waters of Corio Bay alive with shipping. Geelong-has lately, we \ believe, undergone considerable changes, so that, although ive' . know this sketch was faithfully drawn, we are not aware whether t is at present a truthful representation.
THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. ADVANCE AUSTRALIA. SATURDAY, JUNE 24, 1854. A MATTER WHICH CONCERNS THE AUSTRALIAN PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 June 1854
SATURDAY, JUNE 24, 1854. A MATTER WHICH CONCERNS THE AUSTRALIAN PRESS. AN editorial squabble has recently taken place which is not very creditable to either ot' the two parties concerned. Regarded in itself, as a mere quarrel, this matter is wholly insignificant : amu- sing enough, indeed, to the disinterested spectator, but not worthy of a moment's serious notice. Accordingly, wejiave no objection to its being continued for our further entertainment. Mrs. Waller is about to leave Sydney" for a-.-, sh ort time, and the town will be dull during lier absence. Has the reader ever' witnessed a melo- drama in which two ferocious antagonist's ' encounter, look at each other in a sneering manner from head to foot, exchange a cut and thrust, and then, being interrupted, part¿ delivering to each otherthe scowling intimation-" We shall meet again ?. " And would not the reader have been disappointed if those savage foemen failed to " meet again ? " The dark frowns, the scowls that aré designed...

THE BRUSH TURKEY. (Talegalla' Lathami.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 June 1854
THE BRUSH TURKEY. &nbsp; &nbsp; (Talegalla Lathami.) The Brush Turkey is as its name imports, an inhabitant of the dense brushes. Its general size is about equal to that of the domestic Guinea fowl. Its colour is black, its head and neck bare of fea- thers, and those of the male are provided with orange and red fleshy wattles. This bird is easily shot ; it. keepsr close in the thickets until started by the aid of a dog ; when aroused, however, it usually flies to some tree near at hand, and gazes stupidly about until it is knocked over by a shot. The. flesh is very delicate, and owing to the ease with which it may be procured, the brush turkey speedily disappears before the advance of population; they are, however, &nbsp; still numerous in some parts of the colony of New South Wales. THE BRUSH TURKEY. (Talegalla Lathami.) &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The most remarkable feature con- nected witto the bird, is thc pecu- liar process to which it ...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 June 1854
-. MISCELLANEA. THE TuRKTSii- SULTAN.-According, to the special'correspond- ent of the Illustrated London News, there are rumours at Constan- tinople that "the Sultan is more than half a Christian-at least, more Christian than Mahomedan. This, however," it is added, " can only be a matter of surmise or- scandal, for the proof of the fact would be fatal to his Highness's crown-perhaps to his head. A story, however, I heard from a trustworthy person, and-which I believe to be true, may be worth mentioning. Some time ago, when the mosque of St. Sophia was being repaired, under the su- perintendance of an American artist, a lai-ge quantity of the old plastering fell'from'the walls, and discovered the pictures of saints and Christian emblems which had been concealed for ages. The sultan, who happened to be present, having come to see the pro- gress of the works, remarked to the artist in French,-'You must cover oyer the whole of that ; the time is not yet arrived !'"

BAPPOGEE AND HIS FRIEND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 June 1854
BAPPOGEË AND HIS FRIEND. Our friend Worthington', after a residence of two years at Poona, and art indulgence in' all the" pleasures of the place, finding him- self considerably out at the elbows, and very considerably " pes- tered by duns:,"-took counsel with Sir Lionel Smith, the Divi- sional General. By Sir Lionel he was recommended to " concen- trate " his debts''-a procéss which, we may parenthetically ob- serve, seems by many men to be periodically had recourte to, with no higher object thaii that of enabling them' to start fresh scores, with the tradesmen' whom it enables them to pay off. "Concen- trate my debts"--thought Worthington-" Ä capital idea !-but how to find: the lender of the concentrative funds?-Aye, there's the rub!" After much meditating on this subject, he applied to Bappojee the Commissariat Gomashta with whom he had the honor of an acquaintance. Bappojee recommended him to Bal crustna, a clerk in the Poona Pay Office, who was known to be a money lender. And t...
