She has played 'Lucia' three times, ' Sonnambula' twice, ' Trovatore' thrice, and ' Faust' twice, and in addition to these she has giyeh^ ah, kl operatic scena of singular beauty from the 'Hamlet' of 'Ambroise 'Thomas. In all that concerned the prim a donna no praise can be too high. In 'Son- nambula' Bhe, was admirably supported by Mr. Armes Beaumont, who delighted everyone with a most spirited and artistic representation of the difficult part of Elvino. In ' II Trovatore' Miss.

THE VALLEY OF THE GROSE, NEW SOUTH WALES. Some months ago the New South Wales Academy of Art .arranged for the formation of some sketching camps, with the view of enabling its members to form acquaintance with some, of the picturesque scenery of the colony. The moBt'importaat of these camps was organised by Mr. E. Du Faur, the honorary, secretary of the academy, for the purpose of illustrating the romantic valley of the Grose, and the party succeeded in making its way to the foot of the celebrated precipice of /Govett's Leap. A photographer accompanied the expedition, .and took 50 or 60 photographs of the most Btriking scenes, and'itjia from one of these, representing the general view of the.yaliey of, the Grose, that our engraving is prepared. ? \'S\r-l- ?-?

OLD MELBOURNE : THE SALLE DE VALENTINO. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 15 April 1876

OLD MELBOURNE : THE SALLE DE YALENTINO. The engraving shows it in its period of decadence, when ifc was fronted with a hoarding covered with placards, and when the glories of its brighter epoch had departed ; but it bad a notable history for all that its demolition was then impending. It began as a circua — Noble's circus — in 1852, when, if ever a community suffered from epidemic madness, this community of Melbourne suffered. At the corner of Bourke and Spring streets, where now stands the Imperial Hotel, opposite the White Hart., there was put up a structure, which at first was little else than a tent, being canvas-roofed and slightly boarded round. The prices of admission then charged now appear almost fabulous, but it was nightly thronged, notwithstanding. To the equestrian succeeded the musical aud terpsichorean, aud for three years the 'Salle' was the resort of all the fast men, and of women whom we may best describe by a term the op posite of fast, in Melbourne. There was an ...

It was stated in 'Tlte Argus of Saturday that the firm had refused to produce certain private memoranda received from their London firm, and that, in consequence of this and the unsatisfactory nature of some of the evidence given, the Customs authorities had attached all the dutiable goods in the warehouse, and placed five Custom-house officers iu charge, pending investigation as to whether the fall duty was paid on those goods. * A letter was published in the same paper from Messrs.

Tuck's shop is a two-storeyed brick building, situated almost immediately at the back of the Theatre Royal, aud at the corner of one of those dark and' filthy lanes of which our police court records furnish accounts. A solitary wiudow in the base ment is protected by a number of iron bars, behind which a couple of sickly-looking geraniums in' pots are imprisoned, against a background of cracked panes so thick with dirt;tliat I wonder how tbe light gets inside. Passing through a'&blenibly wide doorway, I find myself, at half- past 7 in the evening,' in a din...

SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 15 April 1876

^Sipife^SJ SPORT INC ^^ w^^§' The Autumn Meeting of the Victoria Racing Club was hold on the 4th, 9th, and 11th of March, and afforded some capital racing, but the public patronage, as regards attend ance, was very meagre. On the first day the. Ascot- vale Stakes wore easily carried off by Newminster, Chrysolite colt being second, and Sybil third. The St. Leger Stakes, which was the chief event of the day, were secured by Richmond , who has proved himself one of the most brilliant performers ever seen on the Australian turf. Maid of All Work made a good second, with Bullion third. The principal event of the second day — and of the meeting — was the Australian Cup (two miles and a quarter), which .was also won by. Richmond with great ease, in the shortest time on' record— 4m. 2s. Imperial and Feu D' Artifice ran a dead heat for second place. The chief events of the third day's racing were the Newmarket Handicap, which was won by! Sultan ; and the Town Plate, in which Richmond again p...

The Theatres Sii -•••',•?[ [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 15 April 1876

The principal theatrical incidents of the month have been the appearance of Mr. J. K. Emmet at the Opera-house, and the production of Mr. Byron's comedy of '/Our Boys ' at the Theatre Royal. We take the following notices on the subject from the criticisms of -Tahite in The Austral asian : — On Saturday, March 18, at the Opera-house, Mr. J. K. Emmet appeared for the first time before an audience in Australia, in a piece already made familiar to us by Mr. and Mrs. Williamson, entitled 'Fritz, Our Cousin-German.' Mr. Emmet's exceptional talent consists in what is known as the Dutch business. For just as we have stage Irishmen, stage Yorkshiremen, stage Frenchmen, stage exquisites, and stage niggers, so has there been added, of late years, to this list the stage Dutchman. As contrived by the dramatist this Dutchman seems to be a compound of simplicity and shrewdness, with a marked bias in favour of the musical. He is, therefore, alternately the victim and the victor in the rough battle ...
