EXPLORATION IN NEW GUINEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 February 1876

EXPLORATION IX XEW GUINEA. As interesting letter written by Me. S. M'Farlane, the New Guinea missionary, appeared recently in the Sydney Morning Herald, giving a description of a recent exploring expedition up the Fly River, New Guinea. It is dated on board the misaionarv steamer EUangowan, Fly River. We give the following abridge ment of the letter : — In my la*t I informed you that we were about to start for the Fly .River, by which we hoped to reach healthy aud populous villages, where we might establish a branch of our Papuan mission. We are now on our return voyage, and you will be pleased to learn that we have been on» hundred and sixty miles up that hitherto unexplored river, and mighr, apparently, have gone as much further without reaching mountainous conn try. We returned very reluctantly. I can assure you ; but we bad already exceeded our time. We started from Somerset on tbe 29th November, accompanied bv Lieutenant Chester and L M. D'Albertia.

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 February 1876

!f^^^^feMl!iltllHHiHHHlllHIIHHIIHHlHil(l§i^^^^ The chief musical event of the month has been the appearance of Mdlle. de Murska in a series of farewell performances. The first of these was given at the Town-hall on Saturday, January 22. On this occasion there was not much that was new, but most of it was very good. The one novelty introduced by Mdlle. de Murska was a waltz-song, composed expressly for and dedicated to her by Signor Giorza. It is a beautiful com position, and of course it is adapted to display those refinements and , graces of vocalisation of which Mdlle. de Murska is so prominently the easy . mistress. ' Per sempre,' for that is the title of it, is a song which may be sung by any fairly-accomplished soprano vocalist ; but it is not to be expected that every singer shall give it the effect imparted to it by the lady for whom it is written ; for it is her unique faculty to be able to produce everything that she essays in the most favourable light, showing new beauties...

SCRUB SHOOTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 March 1876

SCRUB SHOOTING. The following interesting sporting sketch is by a contributor to the Brisbane Courier: — Australia and America are the only parts of tbe world that afford scrub shooting on an extensive pcale, as in all other countries tbe sport is met with in tbe open field principally, if we except tbe jungles of India, which ?however, chiefly provide animal hunting, such as tigeis, Jeopards, cheetahs, &c In a warm day. when tbe thermometer is 112? in she shade, the brush is decidedly better tb&n tbe open swamp for tbe brush is alwajs cool, no matter wbat the heat of tbe suu may happen to be. Nothing can be more delicious on a scorching hot day than to enter tbe cool, dense brush, wb^re tbesnn never penetrates, and tbe thousand varied voices of birds among the magnificent vegetation, and tbe grand old trees, draped in their mantles of vines, and canopied with tbe nmbraeeoua foliage tbat overshadows tbat sombre solitude, -where tbe winds can never enter, and tbe spor...

SKETCHER. SATURDAY, MARCH 18, 1876. TOO MUCH PALAVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 March 1876

1 SATURDAY, MARCH IS, 1876. TOO MUCH PAT/AVER The. impression Las for a long time been very generally entertained that the proportion of talk to work is in our JZ/cnslature a most inordinate one. That thi3 belief is grounded in fact has been conclusively shown by a very enrions comparison recently made in the columns of The Argiis between the number of speeches delivered in a ses sion in the House of Commons and those delivered in our Assembly, together with comparative statements of the average number delivered by each member, and by mem bers of various degrees of prominence. The result is very instructive. It shows us that, while moralists like Cablyxe have been for years denouncing the English Legislature for its endless flux of words and paucity of practical outcome, our Victorian Legislature — which has, practically, to ad minister affairs of a petty and merely parochial nature — enormously surpasses the House of Commons in the quantity of words, and still more in the smallness...

Within the last few months tbe quartz mines of Sandhurst have again come prominently into notice through the increasing yields of the valuable mines there, aud prices of shares in many of the mines have greatly increased since the commencement of thin year. The number of quartz . mines profitably worked on Sandhurst, together with the extensive size aud depth of the reefs which traverse them, have now led to the undoubted assurance that mining will be carried on there for many years to come in at least quite as extensive and profitable a manner as at present...

THE VOLUNTEERS. The report of the Volunteer Commission will shortly be pre sented to His Excellency the Governor.
