BANQUET AT THE INAUGURATION OF THE NEW MASONIC HALL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 5 October 1868

BANQUET AT THE INAUGURATION OF THE NEW MASONIC HALL.   The Masonic Hall Company having recently purchased the premises situated in Lonsdale Stree t, formerly occupied as the Insolvent   Court have entirelv renovated and fitted them up into offices for the use of the order. The principal feature in the building is the grand hall, which formerly served for the public business of the court. The aspect of this room has been entirely changed, and the old -frequenters would hardly recognise it. From an ungainly smoke-dried chamber it is trans- formed into an elegant hall, second to none in the city for beauty of decoration. Its dimen- sions are, in length 50 feet, in breadth 26 feet, and in height 24 feet. At one end a handsome gallery has been erected, and at the other there is a slightly elevated stage, surmounted by a canopy of blue festooned cloth. The decorations have been executed under the superintendence of Mr E. L. Bateman, who has judiciously tinted the...

ON THE WALLABY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 5 October 1868

ON THE WALLABY. This expression designates a peouliar phase of Australian life. It is applied to a class of men who contrive to exist in the bush without a home, and, in a great measure, without work. They are to be found in the pastoral districts wandering from station to station, professedly in search of employment, and occasionally getting it no doubt, for sheep-washing, shear- ing, wool-pressing, and other kinds of work peculiar to those districts have to be accom- plished almost simultaneously on all the sta- tions, and the demand for men at certain seasons creates the supply. But many of them are regular loafers, who never mean to do a stroke of work if they can help it. Our engraving on page — repre- sents a couple of these loafers at the interesting turning point of their diurnal routine. Having approached a station, they have discussed the probabilities of a favorable reception, and are waiting for the darkness to set in before they put their expectations to the test. Their...

WESLEYAN CHURCH, EMERALD - HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 5 October 1868

WESLEYAN CHURCH, EMERALD-HILL. The foundation stone of the first portion of this church was laid by Sir Henry Baridy, on the 11th. August, 1863; and the building, notwitstanding some untoward circumstanoes, opened for divine service on Sunday, the 6th April, 1864. It was not long before the fact was apparent that, notwithstanding the very large increase in the accommodation thus afforded, the new building was too small for the requirements of the congregation ; it was consequently but scarcely opened before the consideration of its enlargement was forced upon the church committee. After much con sideration -the architects, Messrs Crouch and Wilson, were, instructed to prepare drawings, &c, for a transept and tower, and the result was the very beautiful design exhibited in oar engraving; but, considering that accommoda tion for the congregation was the first require ment, tho committee postponed the erection of the tower, building the walls however in suoh a manner that this ...

COMEDY OF ERRORS. The Inglewood Advertiser gives a narrative of a ' desperate straggle with Chinese thieveB,' ? to which 'The Comedy of Errors' would. be a fitting title : — ' In our last issue we . save an account of an attempted robbery of cop perplates by Chinese, at ' Harvey's mill, about three o'clock on the morning . of 13th ult.i and of the desperate struggle in whioh constable Gordon . was engaged while trying, to capture one of the , robbers.

INTERIOR OF THAKOMBAU'S HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 12 October 1868

INTERIOR OF THAKOMBAU'S HGUSE. . Ferhaps the place of greatest interest in Fiji is the residence of the lung; certainly one of the finest pieces of native orohitecture and workmanship in the group. It is ofonormons proportions, and supported by massive pillars. Although so large as to hold 2000 people, yet it looks comfortable. There are several hand gojne pieoea otlarjutnre in it, but tho luxury of reclining on the clean and raised mats is pre ferred to chairs. It is impossible bat to be struck with the ease and deportment of his majesty. He is evidently a shrewd, clever man, and is considered, without exception, the best diplomatist in native business in Fiji. The queen lives in a smaller house adjoining, and iB a lady of high rank, and certainly of weight, for she cannot be less than sixteen, perhaps eighteen stone. She is a cheerful and happy woman, and possesses a face of great intelli gence. The natives are devotedly attached to ler. INTERIOR OF THAKAMBAU'S . HOUSE. * INTERIOR...

THE FERN GATHERER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 12 October 1868

THE FERN GATHERER. This painting, by R. Herdman, R.S.A., was purchased in England for our National Gallery, where it now oocnpioB a prominent position. It represents a girl coming homo with a bundle of fern which eho has gathered on a moor. She ap pears to be tired ; the flash upon hor face, and her attitude as she leana against the rook upon whioh she has deposited her ferns, indicate the feeling of weariness which tho painter wishes to convey. This impression is still f arthor con veyed by the long etrotoh of moorland whioh she has had to traverse, and on which the shades of evening aro beginning to gather. It is a slight subject, but handled in a masterly manner. Every line and every bit of coloring contributes to the one effeot of making the pioture at once tell its own story.
