CAPTAIN MUMM. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

CAPTAIN MUMM. B\* MaHCUS CliAIlKE. When my friend Compass, C.E., landed with mo some ten years ayo upon these hospitable shores, he called a street-car, ami, in his charmingly trustful Manner,, committed his body to the deep by saying to the driver, 'Have the kindness, if you please, cabman, to take me to .some chain but respectable hotel.' The cabman took us both to the Ttoyul Bruzilan Hotel and Restaurant, and there I met Captain Mumin, The Kpyal Brazilian Hotel -was neither particularly clean nor particularly select, but none but honest men frequented it, and its proprietor, an ex-digger, was one of the best-hearted fellows in the world. There was a sort of .fiction at the Royal Brazilian that poor Benbow — Admiral Be'nbow as we used to call him — was making his fortune, but I think that most of the lodgers knew full well that the report was purely an efl'ort of sympathetic imagination. Benbow was so genial, so good humoured, and so deliciously ignorant of the art and mystery of ...

SAD CASES OF DROWNING IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

SAD OASES OP DROWNING IN NEW ZEALAND. A correspondent of the Soutlierii Crgss (Auckland) thus writes . to that journal : — ''I regret to have to reporc cases of drowning on a scale happily unparalleled in this district, that of three Europeans in a boat, on Sunday last, 25th May. and two Maoris. during the recent flood's. ? The following are the particulars : — On the evening above-mentioned four men, named Charles Smith, Thomas Wilkes, Major Doyle, and Peter Larie, who were employed asbushmen at one of the. Te Kopu-ru bushes, left Kaihu in a boat, and proceeded up the river, intending to go to their work on Monday. 'When a short distance above Mr. Henry Harrison's, about five miles from Kaihu, Doyle got lip inthe boat to relieve Wilkes at the oar, when his foot caught in one of the timbers at the bottom, and he fell forward on the gunwale,' instantly capsizing the boat and precipitating its occupants into the'water. ' .From the meagre account which has come to hand, it seems that W...

STAWELL AND THE PLEASANT CREEK REEFS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

STAWELL AND THE PLEASANT. CREEK REEFS, Stawell, as the centre of the Pleasant Creek gold-field, has become well known latterly to the, people of Victoria in conse quence of the litigation arising out of the jumped claims. But; the very fact of such a powerful combination being formed to obtain possession of mining property from the owners who have held it for 16 or 17 years has attracted an amount of public attention to the locality that it was never before favoured with, and has published the value and richness of its quartz reefs to an extent not known before., In another page we give a view of the town and the principal rjeefs, and here we purpose to give some particulars of the history, progress, and present position , of the place. It will tend to the convenience of the reader if we give an account of the stages by which the gold-field has attained its present development before giving a description of the town which has grown from its success. Pleasant Creek is by no means a n...

NEW GUINEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

NEW GUINEA. Captain Moresby, of H.M.S. Basilisk, while cruising in Torres Straits and neighbourhood for the suppression of tho Polynesian labour- traffic, has added a valuable .fact to the knowledge wo ? possessed of the geography of New Guinea, by the discovery of a new port and harbour in.ltit. 9° 30' S., Ion. 147° 10' E., about 38 miles east of Redscar Bay on the south-eastern coast. ? The dis covery was made in February, when Captain Moresby, while' searchingfor a river supposed toflow into the sea east of Redscar Bay, entered an inlet which proved to be the entrance to a mag nificent harbour, with an outer and inner anchorage; .to which the names of Port Moresby and Fairfax Harbour have been given. A complete survey made by the boats of the, Basilisk con firmed the favourable impression which the aspect of the port had given at firgt sight, arid on soundings being taken, 'the' depth of water wasiascertained to be from seven to ten fathoms in Port Moresby, and about five fathoms...

THE CALIFORNIAN ROUTE.—A TRAIN SNOWED UP. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

THE CALIFORNIAN ROUTE— A TRAIN SNOWED UP. The Pacific Railway is one of the high roads of travel for Australians on their way to or from England; and the incident so graphically pourtrayed. in the spirited wood-cut in this issue constitutes one of the risks and drawbacks of the journey, if it should happen to be undertaken in the middle of our summer, which *is, of course, the depth of the American winter. Tra versing, as this wonderful monument of industrial .enterprise does, plains of enormous area, and scaling one of the grandest mountain ranges of the New World, until the railroad reaches a point of elevation 7,000ft. above the level of the sea, the through .traffic is always liable to be interrupted by a heavy snowfall ; and it is only in these regions that you begin to' comprehend what this phrase means, as well as the magnitude of the snowdrift. The scene represented was an actual occurrences of which the locale was the .Cheyenne Prairie ; and our informant describes in anima...

Mr. Degraves became the purchaser of this station from the bank, ai-d he subsequently bought another station, known as Dots wood,, from another bank. In both these stations Mr. M 'Mullen -became a partner with Mr. Degraves, and remained so (according, to the plaintiff's story)...

THE SUNBURY COURSING MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

THE SUNBURY COURSING MEETING. Public interest in the sport of coursing has lately been increased by the first meeting of the Victoria Coursing Club, which came off over Mr. W. J. Clarke's estate at Sunbury. There were two stakes run off tne Sunbury Stakes, for all-aged greyhounds, and the West Bourke Stakes lor puppies. The former was won by the subject of our illustration (Nicodemus), who has thereby attained the proud position of champion of Victoria, as he defeated Cumloden, Meg Merrilies, and Pell Mell three of the best dogs in the colony. At the same time Nicodemus had some luck in his victory, as Pell Mell, who ' ran up ' with him, had run a very hard course with Cumloden previously, whilst Nicodemus was comparatively fresh when put in slips for the deciding course. But Nicodemus is a very fine young dog, and although not a handsome animal to look at, has some sterling good points in his conformation, whilst he ran very gamely in all his courses. He is a colonial-bred dog, whe...

STRANGE APPEARANCE AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

STRANGE APPEARANCE AT SEA. Captain Lehman, of the ship Adelheid, noticed during a . voyage from Labmui to Singapore, in 3° 5' N. and 108° 14' R, on March. 23, a peculiar white light, such as he had not previously seen during his 26 years of maritime life. He described the occurrence to the reporter of the South Australian Register as follows : — 'The weather was rough, and raining, and about half past 10 p.m. the helmsman hastily called me on deck. On my arrival there I was almost blinded by a milky-white light which shone around. The air was close, and theship was goingabout four or five knots an hour. At a distance of about twice tho ship's length ahead, and coming from the south-east, there appeared as it were milky-white waves of light. They advanced with great rapidity every moment, and seemed as though they would devour tho ship. These waves rolled over the vessel at intervals of two seconds, losing themselves at about twice the ship's length away in the north-west. After a sh...

H.M.S. BASILISK AT NEW GUINEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

H.M.S. BASILISK AT NEW GUINEA. The statement was recently received in Melbourne from . Sydney that Captain Moresby, of H.M.S. Basilisk, had taken possession of New Guinea in the. name of Her Majesty. Com modore Stirling has been communicated with, and. asked if he knows anything on the subject. His reply to the Government of New South Wales is, that he knows nothing of the transaction referred to, and that if Captain Moresby has taken possession, he has done jsb on his own responsibility. This is equivalent to stating that it has not been done. The following sketch of the very interesting cruise of the Basilisk is from the Itockhamplon Bulletin. We may- probably assume from it that the taking possession merely describes some formal assertion of the right of first discovery :—' Cardwell, Monday, 11.30 a.m. — H.M.S. Basilisk has just returned from a very interesting cruise, having made important surveys on the extreme south-east coast of New Guinea— a locality never before visited by ...

TERRIBLE COACH ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

TERRIBLE ' COAOH ACCIDENT. The Bathurst Times oi June 11 reports :— An accident ot a very terrible nature, by which one man lost his life and three other persons, were severely injured, occurred on the Sofala-road, within a mile or so of the village of Peel, late on Monday after noon last. It appears that the mail-coach on that day left Sofala at the usual time, driven by a man named George Bris towe, and when the deplorable affair happened there were in the vehicle three passengers— namely, a man named George Du Crano (a Frenchman) and two women, named respectively Mrs. Baker and Mrs. Dickson. The road was in an exceedingly boggy state, but all went on well until a hill had been reached leading down to a place known as Folley's Gully — a locality which, it appears, is dangerous, to travel in any weather, but especially so after rain — and upon arriving here the horses set off at a gallop, the driver apparently losing all command over them. How this arose is not very clear. The Fren...
