THE NEWCOMES.—No. 4. CHAPTER XI.—AT MRS RIDLEY'S [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 June 1854

THE NEWCOMES.-No. 4. CHAPTER XI.-AT MRS RIDLEY'S Saint Peter of Alcantara, as I have read in a life of Saint The- resa, informed that devout lady that he had passed forty years of his life sleeping only an hour and a half each day ; his cell was but four .feet and a half long, so that he never lay down -f his pillow was a wooden log in the stone wall ; he ate but once in three days ; he was for'three years in a convent of his order without knowing any one of his brethren except by the sound of their voices, for he i never during this period took his eyes oft' the ground ; he always j walked barefoot, and was but skin and bone when he died. The eating only once in three days, so he told his sister Saint, was by no means impossible, if you began the regimen in your youth. To conquer sleep was the hardest of all austerities which he practised : -I fancy the pious individual so employed, day after day, night after night, on his knees,, or standing up in devout meditation in the cupboard...

MAJOR JACOB. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 June 1854

MAJOR JACOB. Thé Commander-in-Chief has given an official wigging to Major Jacob of the Scinde Horse, relative to-bis pamphlet recently published. We cannot doubt Lord FitzClarence was sincere when he wrote that he was " grieved" to censure Major Jacob-"one who has received (most justly) honours from, his Sovereign, and the appro- bation of the Government he has the honour to serve. ' It must be painful for a Chief who in no small; degree has striven to stimu- late emulation and pay honour to merit, to have publicly to select one of the most distinguished of officers for rebuke. From an mimilitary view, we would feel inclined to think a less public channel would have been effective, for expressing his disap- probation, and a brave officer might, have esaaped with a miti- gated rebuke for his mistake in publishing. Iiis " opinion in his ollicial capacity." Resenting On behalf of the Regimental Officers Major Jacob's thoughtless words applied to them, and at the same time giving a wel...

THE DUEL IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 June 1854

THE DUEL IN THE BUSH. In the story of " Emily Oxford, or Life in Australia," we find the following incident of George Flower, a famous mounted policeman, who was sent out to hunt Up a noto- rious bushranger, named Millighan : He met Millighan as a fellow ranger-and who supposed Flower to be dead. After some conversation, Flower said: "Now, suppose a mounted policeman, or thief taker-a fellow of real pluck-was to come upon you when you were alone, and was to challenge you to surren- der, what would you do ? Would you draw your trigger at once, and not give him a chance ?" " No," cried Millighan, " I'd tell him to stand off and have a fight for it." " Millighan," said Flower^ still keeping'his eagle eye fixed on him, " are you speaking the truth ?" "Yes, so help'me Heaven!" " Now, let us suppose," continued Flower, " that such a man as that fellow George Flower-the fellow that was ' drowned the other day-was to be in the same position with you as I am now?" " I'd tell him," said Milli...

.WEDNESDAY, JUNE 21'. The Speaker took the chair at lialf-past-three o'clock. '- The Stanley Election Committee .having been sworn, Mr. Cowper moved that the.Commutée be directed to inquire into all matters connected with .the.issue aiid return of the writ contending that, although not mentioned in* Dr, Lang's petition, the alteration by the Government of the returning officer was the great point to be inquired into. The Solicitor-General , explained" the meaning of the wordâ of ' the Act, as referring to matters only subsequent-to elections, and thought that tlie House should not decide upon the course pro- posed by the Committee without*due consideration. Mr. Campbell then, in a very personal and" offensive speech, accused the Government of " jockeyism " in-the election proceed- ings, and'supported Mr. Cowper's motion. Mr. Martin inveighed against the ignorance displayed by the last speaker, as well as against his language, and characterised his conduct as "undignified, improper, ...

THURSDAY. JUNE 22. . Tile Speaker took: the chair at half-past three o'clock. The Speaker announced that he had received a supplementary petition from Dr. Lang, stating other matters of objection totthe return of Mr. Hodgson. Mr. Cowper moved that the Supplementary Petition be referred' to the Election; Committee. The Attorney-General'objected to the Petition being received in-so hasty a manner, but would offer no .obstacle to the reception, of it, except on the ground that it was pressed too hastily on the consideration of the House. The motion was carried. Several Bills were read for the first time; The House then went into Committee upon the second reading of the Military Tolls Bill, which elicited some discussion, in which: the Attorney-General and Colonial Secretary took part in sup portini the Bilf, and; Mr. Cowper,.

DEPARTURE OF THE BALTIC FLEET. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 June 1854

DEPARTURE OE THE BALTIC" ELEET. (From the TÜMß.) ' "During: the entire morning the ships of war had lain quietly at their anchorage-as usual, with nothing apparently to disturb' their grand repose. About half-past nine o'clock they had been; joined by the Neptune, Admiral Cory's flag-ship, which, having. been fitted for sea with incredible speed, was tugged out of harbour by two steamers, in presence of an immense concourse of people. Shortly afterwards the Black Eagle went to Spithead, with a dis- tinguished party on board, and as noon approached, the number of . small craft, pilot-boats, yachts, and excursion steamers in tlie roadstead increased;' Still there was little-to indicate that a fleet was about to set forth on an- expédition* of such importance; no steam up; no sails even partly unfurled ; aud'though there was in- cessant cheering"on the waters,.and the Madrid hung about as if expecting some great event to come ofF,' the crews ot' the different ships-showed no unusual ac...

"KILLING NO MURDER." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 June 1854

"KILLING NO MURDER." I THE Sydney Morning Herald has-taken up the cause of the man Gray, the~murderer of .the late Dr, Cuthill, and .deprecates, the execution of the sentence which was passed upon him. As the question-is one of muehpuhlic import- ance, we will state as briefly as possible the reasons which induce us to dissent from die opinion of our contemporary, who we think has siillered his impartial judgment to be swayed by a misplaced tenderness. The admitted facts of the case-and those on the as- sumption of which the verdict was delivered-are, that Gray was under the influence of a delusion-of onp only -i-when he mimiced Dr. Cuthill, and that in all other respects, and on every other point, he was perfectly sane. That delusion was a-belief that he had- been injured, by the man whom, therefore, in revenge he deliberately made lus victim. He had one false-one mistaken idea : his halber .cination terminated in that, and did not interfere with . th.e .exercise ol' his reasoning ...

?PUBLIC AMUSEMENTS.. ' Hov AL VICTORIA ïiiEATRE.-We confess that wehadnoexpec- | talion of any great entertainment from our'visit to the Victoria this ¡ week, lt is true that Mr. and Mrs. AValler had;been highly praised by our Sydney contemporaries, but as theymave gota habit of-la-, vishing indiscriminate pane« yric expressed in certain stock phrases, which suit every occasion, of course their praise in any particular case goes ipr nothing. This habit, however, is not without some advantages, one of which was that it reserved for us' a very agree- able surprise. If, indeed, we were to assert- that Mr. Waller is entitled to rank in the first class, of his profession, we should be saying simply what we clo not believe ; and we are convinced that that gentleman has too much good sense to believe any such state- ment about himself. We recognise in Mr. Waller an. actor of taste, possessed of the skill which study and practice confer, who, if he fails to carry his audience irresistibly w...

SYDNEY POLIGE COURT. Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 24 June 1854

SYDNEY POLIGE COURT. Saturday. I There were fourteen persons on the Drunkards' List. Larceny.-Frederick Redman, who had been apprehended as a prisoner illeerally at large, was charged with stealing £27 from Henry Luddle. This was a case of gross ingratitude, for it ap- peared that the parties hud been living together at a boarding house in Erskine-street, the prisoner, who was destitute, dieing main- tained at the sole expense of the prosecutor. The evidence was conclusive, the prisoner having been'observed by a man named Thompson in the act of rifling Luddle's pockets while asleep. Committed for trial at the Criminal Court. Monday. Violent Assault.-Samuel Abbott, publican, was charged with violently assaulting one John Connor. It appeared that the pro- secutor, a labourer, had gone into Abbott's house, at the corner of Market-street and York-street, in order to get a glass of ale, when, some dispute arising, Abbott took up a thick stick, and striking Connor on the forehead, felled ...

A VISIT TO THE CEMETERY AT TE PAPA. (From the New Zealander, June 1). [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1864

A VISIT TO THE CEMETERY AT TE PAPA. (From the New Zpalander. June*!). THE place of interment of the heroes who fell nobly leading on their men in the memorable engagement on the 29th of April is well worthy of a visit. Te Papa, the mission station of the Venerable Archdeacon Brown, is situated on the southern peninsula of Tauranga harbour, and presents the appearance of a fertile pastoral district. The cemetery is on a point overhanging the entrance to the harbour, and is a really picturesque spot for the sacred purpose to which it has been allotted, and has evidently been used as a place of interment by the natives for some considerable period, for it is dotted here and there with time-honoured mementos of Maori graves. Here is a decayed vault of plain wood, at the head of which we perceive, through a crevice wrought in it by time, the remains of a blanket and spear. At another place may be seen the skull of a human being, lying loosely on the soddened mound of earth which denotes ...
