RECEPTION OF SIR JULIUS VOGEL AT WELLINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 March 1876

RECEPTION OF SIR JULIUS VOGEL AT WELLINGTON. The public reception accorded to Sir Julius Vogel upon his arrival at Wellington was far and away the greatest and most enthusiastic that had ever been seen there before, not even excepting the grand reception given to His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh. The Arawata had been detained purposely so that she might not arrive before dark, in order that the ' pyrotechnic effect might be enhanced. From the moment when the steamer rounded into tbe harbour until she steamed up to the wharf the booming of guns- and the roaring of rockets were deafening, while the whole scene was illuminated by myriads of lights of infinite variety. Throughout the whole day the shipping displayed every rag of bunting, and at night they were brilliant with lights. A goodly number of the buildings facing the bay were illuminated, in every window. The prees of people — of men and women, and frequently children with them — was so great upon the wharf when the ste...

A KANGAROO HUNT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 March 1876

A KANGAROO HUNT.: ^ - A correspondent of the Singleton Argua (N.S.W.) gives' the following description :— On Friday laBt a number of residents of Tdmlnr Springs and Merrigula assembled to enjoy the sport of limiting the kangaroo bo numerously represented in this locality. Early in the day upwards of twenty equestrians, met at Mr.. James Gallagher s residence, near which the kangaroo yards had been erected. These 'are constructed of pine logs to the height of about 9ft., and from them extend two wing fences of the same timber, each having, a length of several hundred yards. All being in readiness, a start was made for the usual resort of the kangaroo in the scrub at the foot of the ranges adjacent. Having started the animals from this place, the whole bush seemed alive with their graceful forme, an they hopped swiftly from their pursuers towards a myall scrub not far1 from the yards. In this Bcrub they were allowed to' remain until the whole number bad been collected, when a muster o...

PEARL-SHELL FISHING IN TORRES STRAITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 March 1876

PEAKL-SHELL FISHING IN TORRES STRAITS. The following description of the pearl-Bhell fishery in' the north is by a contributor, 'J. R. H.,' .'-of The Australasian : — The pearl-shell fisheries on the enorth' west coast of Australia and Torres Straits have assumed such an important position that the produce maybe now fairly classed as one of the regular exports of the colonies to the mother country. The fisheries on the north-western coast employ something like 60 vessels of all sizes, chiefly owned in Western Australia, and principally manned by Malays, who, from all accouut?, appear to be superior divers' to those employed- in Torres Straitp, to which, latter place I shall confine my attention. ..'.... The trip up to Cape York, or properly speaking, Somerset, after getting within the 'Great Barrier' Reefs, is very ' pleasant, notwithstanding its very difficult navigation through reefs, Baud-banks, and other obstnictions. The time passes rapidly wbilBt enjoying a dolce far niente sor...

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

The appearance of the Lingards at the Theatre Royal, on . the night of February 19, in the society piece of 'Saratoga,' drew a very large audience. Of the ladies who then' made their first bow to the Melbourne public, and of the other performers, ' Tahite' wrote in The Australasian :— Miss Alice Dunning Lingard is about the middle height, she has a graceful, elegant figure, an easy carriage, and a certain lissom movement which suggests undulation, and imparts to the eye a sense of agreeable repose. She has a beautiful face, with a soft, kind expression, and a tremulous mouth which, probably, in denoting emotional passages, could be made to declare itself with a strongly-marked emphasis. But she spoils the otherwise good effect of her facial beauty by the employment of too much art, in endeavour ing to improve her complexion. This gives to the face, at a distance, the appearance of extreme pallor, almost amounting to ghastliness. And this is a pity, for where Nature has been so bount...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 March 1876

The last number of TJie SJxtclier reported the step to which the Government was compelled to resort by the obstructive policy pursued by the Opposition, and its success. A new standing order, giving the power to close debate and come to a division, was proposed and adopted.. This made speeches against time and repeated motions for adjournment alike impossible, and enabled the Govern ment to put its business before the House with some probability of progress being made. The discussion on ?the Budget was accordingly resumed, and Bteady way was made, the Opposition seeing that further attempts at obstruction were wholly useless. The land and property tax was carried on ? a division by 32 votes to 28, and the tax on bank notes was passed without a division. After some debate the proposal for the imposition of an income tax was also carried by a majority of 37 votes to 28. The Government promised to recommit the land tax and income tax resolutions, with a view to amendment, and afterward...
