No title THE SCHOOLMASTER'S WIFE. A ROMANCE OF BULLOCK TOWN. Part I.-THE SCHOOLMASTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 April 1873

THE SCHOOLMASTER'S WIFE. A Romance of Bullock Town. By Marcus Clarke. Part L— THE SCHOOLMASTER. Mr. John Hardy, the. schoolmaster, was regarded with some degree of awe by the Bullock Town folks. As a general rule, Bullock Town stood in awe of nothing under or over heaven, believing utterly .in the perfect fitness of things, and the pro priety of its own existence. But Mr. John Hardy was a human being of a type so unfamiliar to Bullock Town that for once in its life the township unwillingly did reverence. _ - The new schoolmaster was a tall, gaunt, angular man'with a mop of black hair,- large white bony hands, and black melancholy eyes. Ho arrived by the night coach with no more property than a small bag sufficed to carry, and asked Flash Harry if the schoolmaster's house was anywhere near. Harry pointed with his whip to the little hut which, embowered in creepers, stood on the hill, and the new comer at once tramped away to it, ignoring, with provoking complacency, the great busines...

FREEMASONRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 April 1873

FREEMASONRY. In devoting space in The Australasian Sketcher to tho interests of the Ancient and Honourable Order of Free masons, we are prompted by an earnest desiro to conserve and cultivate the best interests of a craft which ' knows no country, and is confined to no race. The wide extension of the order throughout this colony and continent has gathered under its banners numbers of good men who hail from the distant lodges of the .mother country, and many more who claim- their masonic privileges from lodges established here since the introduction of Freemasonry into, this. ? Numerically strong, yet there is in some sense an amount of isolation between members of different lodges, for want of a common literary medium, wherein tho general progress of masonic business may be made known in such guise that it shall reach the members of the craft with the common-place regularity of journalistic commu nication, at the same time, and in company with, matter in which the uninitiated would ...

THEATRES, &C. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 April 1873

THEATRES, &o. During the. first three months of this present year thore have been threo principal successes in the way of amuse ments in this city — to wit, the pantomime at the Royal, Mr. Gilbert's ' Pygmalion and Galatea,' and Ohiarini's Circus. As to the pantomime, nobody seems quite to have determined why it was a success. It was no better than other pantomimes of an average sort ; it was not new, and it was not put on the stage so well, as some pantomimes which might be referred to in the history generally of Molboiirne pantomimes. But it became the fashion to go and seo it, and probably the attraction of the new theatre itself had something to do in persuading j-eoj-le they would be moro pleasantly entertained than usual. ' And, in deed, thero is more than is at first sight apparent in this reason of comfortableness of the theatre itself. For at last we have a theatre which is really ventilated, so that it is possible to sit through a whole evening's performance, even ...

SOCIALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 April 1873

SOCIALITIES, A social or any other sort of review of the last month in these columns, appears .to me '-rather out of place. Is a journalist supposed to be in existence before Ms journal sees tho light? And if so, is it only for the davi week; or month immediately preceding the interesting event, so that | he may have nothing but the freshest news to -feed the young thing with T As a man He lives, no doubt, but a man who may by the natural selection of editors develope into a newspaper writer is very different indeed to the fully developed being, all eye and ear, and ever on the watch for something striking. The writer of copy for an unborn paper is like the young wife getting the baby clothes ready for the little stranger she expects the angels to bring her home some day. They work- blushingly, diffidently, and with a sort of nervous fear the things won't fit. This article may . be found rather long, or that too light, or. the bit of fancy, work,- admired so much' in the execution, ...

MEAT-PRESERVING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 April 1873

MEAT-PRESERVING. Except gold-finding and wool-growing, Australia has no more valuable industry than meat-preserving. By means of it the price of live stock is maintained at a rate remunerative to the grower, .while the price of fresh meat is scarcely affected, since the local consumer never reaped much benefit from the .extreme depressions in the ? live stock market which were of frequent occurrence before meat-preserving began. It lias also led to tho, profitable utilisation of much animal material that was formerly allowed-to go to waste. The different meat-preserving establishments so much re semble each other, and the processes employed in all are so much alike, that the following brief description is generally applicable. The manufactories are so sittiated as to combine as fully, as may be found possible proximity to a well-supplied cattle market -with facilities for the shipment of the finished product. When ever practicable, grazing paddocks are provided adjacent to the works...

BOAT RACES ON THE YARRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 April 1873

BOAT RACES ON THE YARRA. During the last fortnight the River Yarra has been the scene of two contests, one of. which excited the same interest among all lovers of aquatic fjports— and the passion for them is riot less ardent iri Australia. than in England — as the University Boat Race on the Thames. The first and more important of these was ' a trial of skill among the picked oarsmen of Sydney, Hobart Town, Melbourne; Geelong, and Ballarat, for the championship of the whole of this group- of colonies. Hitherto the men of New South Wales have won and kept the primacy, but on the .29th ult. the coveted pre-eminence passed over into the hands of the Victorians. It was the .first Intercolonial Gig Race that had ever taken place on our waters, and the banks of the Yarra, from below the Falls, were ? lined with spectators, while the weather — the bright, bland, balmy weather which we experience during the Indian summer — was . all that could, be desired. Betting, generally, was in favour ...

FINE ARTS. THE VICTORIAN ACADEMY OF ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 April 1873

FINE ARTS. THE VICTORIAN ACADEMY OF ARTS. The third exhibition of tho Victorian Academy of Arts, which opened on the 22nd of March, may be pronounced a success. We do not only mean a pecuniary success as an exhibition, but a success as regards the number and nature of the pictures and works of art exhibited. In all colonies, especially in a very young colony like this, the arts find it most difficult to flourish. The existence of Art depends upon judiciona patronage, and art patronage of any kind is the result of a combination of money and leisure. We have plenty of money in this colony, but wo .have very little leisure. Our rich men are, for the most part, the architects of their own fortunes, and are, in many instances, too 'exhausted with tho mero manual labour of hod-carrying, to care to expend more time and trouble in ornamenting ? the structure it has already cost so much to raise. ? We have said that we consider the progress of the Academy .satisfactory, but we regret that th...

A LADY'S LETTER FROM LONDON". [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 April 1873

A LADY'S LETTER FROM LONDON'. [In the interests of our fair readers we have enlisted the pen of a lady well known in the world of belles-lettres to supply a monthly contribution,.; summarising the -London, fashionable intelligence, the doings of Tsociety, and news generally likely to be acceptable to. lady readers in Australia. We here present the first letter.] . '??' - . ?' \^. ?'' ' LONDON, . Feb. 20. Isr. spite of dark days and higV.priccs, tho London season opens brilliantly. Something that is not' rain, and not fog of the ordinary kind, but vapour poised between the sky and the earth, fills the .air, and in every house the gas is alight nearly all day, wliile the atmosphere feels as though the sun had gone over to your side of the world for good.

FANTOCCINI. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 April 1873

FANTOCCINI. ' And this is tho world that turns upon its own axis, and Las Lunar in fluences, and revolutions round Heavenly Bodies, nnd various games of that sort ! This is human nature, is it?' — Sampson Brass. That somewhat intelligent poetaster -whom tho immortal Alexander Dumas calls the ' Divine Williams,' is reported to have been in his youth a puppet-show man. Yes, the editor of Lord Bacon's plays was once a peripa tetic pauper travelling from village to village to answer Othello's undomesticated inquiry for ' goats and monkeys.' It may be cheering to youthful and Australian aspirants for dramatic fame to. know this fact relating to the D.W., and I therefore quote it. There is not a snub nosed, cabbage-leaf smoking, ring-fingered, Leviathan clothed, five-o'clock-in-the-niorning coffee-stall haunter, who may not become stage manager for a future Bacon, and go down to applauding posterity as a Divine Williams. Think of that, ye noble aristocracy of young soft-goods men, and rej...

SPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 April 1873

SPORTING. The great and national sporb of racing has never been in higher favour. than during the past season, which has been a very busy and a very successful one. Going back to New Year's Day, the Victoria Racing Club had its usual day's racing, and nearly 20,000 persons visited the course at Flemington. There were seven events — a hurdle race, won by Bismarck ; a three-year-old handicap, in which Blue Peter defeated the South. Australian Leo and five others ; the Two-year-old Stakes, won by an extreme outsider, Dr. Bathe's Maid of Avenel by Stockham, nine other youngsters competing ; the Midsummer Handicap, won by Mr. Filgate's Dolphin, defeating, amongst others, The Quack and Warrior ; a steeplechase, won by old Reindeer ; the Canterbury Stakes, in which Blue Peter again came to the front, King of the Ring and Hercules being behind him; and the £100 Plate, won by Topper, Mr. Hurtle Fisher getting second place with The Friar. The annual sale of the Maribyrnong .yearlings came off...

THUMB-NAIL SKETCHES AT STREET CORNERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 April 1873

THUMB-NAIL SKETCHES AT STREET CORNERS. An observant man standing for a short, time at any of the principal street corners of Melbourne may gain both instruction and entertainment by noting the amount and variety of cha- racter, in many cases purely and distinctly Australian, exhibited by the halting members of the living stream of humanity which flows past him. Our artist, sketching the momentarily tarrying occupants of one corner, has succeeded in depicting a specimen of a really colonial institution — the Melbourne larrikin. With his hat cocked over his eye, and his hands in his pockets, he is ready to join in any wanton mischief. There are street Arabs in other countries, there are Hoodlums in San Franciso, but there is no other variety which can be compared with the Mel- bourne larrikin for violence, reckless defiance of the law, and capacity for malting the lives of respectable people miserable. The Melbourne larrikin — who is to be found in every street, and gets in the way of...
