SKIFF RACE FOR £50. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1864
SKIFF RACE FOR £50. A MATCH between Donnelly and McLeer "in two equal boats " came off on the Parramatta River (over the usual course, from Kissing Point to the Brothers), on Saturday, the 4th instant. The race Avas a very hollow affair and may be easily de- scribed. A splendid start was effected, and McLeer at once drew away from his opponent, increasing his lead every stroke. Before they had gone 100 yards he was a length ahead, was never caught, and won easily by three boats' lengths-time twenty-five minutes. M'Leer has greatly im- proved in style during the last couple of months, and when in condition will prove an awkward cusomer for any amateur to . beat. The boats used were the Zoe and Hebe, lent for the , occasion by Mr. Buckley, of Darling Harbour. The monthly practice of the Small-bore Rifle Club took place on Saturday afternoon, the 2Sth of May, at the Volunteer Rifle Range. The weather was very unfavourable for shooting. The distances fired at were 300, 700, 800, and 900...

MICAWBERISM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1864
. MIGAWBERISM. . Wilkins Micawber, Esq., was the founder of a system of philosophy. It is true he did not invent all the , dogmas of his school, but he combined and united them in such a harmonious manner, that "waiting for something to turn up " is, and must ever be, hnmortal in its connection with his name. Mr. Micawber was a great man in his way, and has thousands of humble .imitators on both sides of the ocean-men who wait patiently for the, expected El Dorado till their, heads are as bald as a pumpkin. That vanity in a man which induces hun to think he has not found his appropriate sphere until he is a man pf large income,: and, noted amongst his fellow beings, is a stupid and danger-! pus fallacy. '"He -cannot see .himself, as others see,.him, and behind the counter of a shop he pines for a larger. sphere at'the1 head of an army, in parliament,, or as a merchant prince revelling in the possession pf minions. ' Such men are to be met with al- most everywhere, and even those who...

FLOOD IN THE HUNTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1864
FLOOD IN THE HUNTER. Another extensive flood has visited the Hunter, and desolated a large area of cultivated land, driving industrious settlers and their families from their homesteads, destroying young and growing crops, and making the land so sodden as to render it &nbsp; unfit for the plough until the season will be so far advanced that sowing would be only waste of seed On the 2nd inst., the sky presented a cloudy appearance, and on the next morning heavy masses of clouds were observed on the southern horizon. During the day some slight showers fell, but as evening &nbsp; &nbsp; closed in the rain poured down like , sheets of water ; it continued to &nbsp; rain in the same manner through- &nbsp; out the night. Early on Friday &nbsp; morning the river had risen about six feet. The rain fell throughout the day with almost unabated vio- lence, and the river at Maitland rose &nbsp; about one foot an hour.

LANDING PLACE OF CAPTAIN COOK AT BOTANY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1864
LANDING PLACE OP CAPTAIN COOK AT BOTANY. SOME generations heneo-..tho spot where the discoverer of Australia first set foot on its soil may become an object of as much historic interest to our descendants as the lancling place of the " Pilgrim Fathers " has become to Americans. Strange to say,-at present it. is, comparatively speaking, terra incognito evento the .inhabitants of Sydney, the great majority of whom iiave never ¿visited the spot j. and the dreary .desolation around Botany Bay contrasts strongly with the busy hum of human industry which, surrounds Port Jackson. How little could Gook have. foreseen, when landing on that barren rock, the mighty results which were destined to follow ; that the naked savages, who then for the first time looked on the face of a white man,, were soon to .become a thing of the past ; that towns and cities would spring up as if by magic, and thousands, of his fellow-countrymen seek these shores to found a new empire. Some twelve months ago we su...

CAPTURE OF GARDINER, THE BUSHRANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 June 1864
CAPTURE OE. GARDINER, THE BUSHRANGER. In the earlier clays of this Colony bushranghig was a pursuit but too often adopted by convicts to whom the re- straints imposed by the Crown became irksome. The career of . these desperadoes was generally cut short by the efforts of the colonists, and for a number of years crimes, of this nature were of comparatively rare occurrence, and it was not until the opening of the Lachlan gold-fields that highway rob- beries with violence again become rife amongst us. Of the desperadoes who have for the past two or three years rendered life and property in. the Western districts unsafe, "Frank Gardiner," alias Clarke, alias Christy, is the most notable ; his connexion with the escort robbery, the reckless daring of his exploit's, and his success in avoiding capture have given him a greater notoriety than any of his lawless predecessors. Un- fortunately, .his vicious example: lias "üe^ imitated by se^^wl-^fortiinate young men,' some of whom have lost th...
