THE KANGAROO PLAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 May 1876
THE KANGAROO PLAGUE. The Capricornian, a North Queensland, paper, says :— The disquieting accounts which continually reach us from tbe Mackenzie, Comet, Nogo», arid Peak Downs districts, of the rapid increase of native game, suggest the necessity of com bined action among grazieis in order to eilectuaiiy grappie wim the evil. For years past marsupials aud rodents have been multiplying, but of late tbe augmentation of numbers has been Krodigious. When the runs were first occupied the, aboriginal lacks and native dogs waged a relentless warfare _againBt the grasseating animals indigenous to the country. Its natural aridity, moreover, was often destructive to animal.: lite, and every severe drought well-nigh cleared large stretches of country of its native game. But now the blacks have disappeared, great numbers of native dogs have been poisoned, and water has been artifically conserved for the eustenance of live stock— all of which has proved as conducive to tbe increase of wild anima...

AX OCTOPUS, SEEN IX POKIXAXD BAT. FEOM.A SKETCH BY MR. H. BUTI.ER, PORTLAND. A resident of Portland, Mr. Henry Butler, has sent us a sketch, from which our engraving is taken, and also a description of an adventure which happened to him on March 25, when he was climbing the rocks near Portland lighthouse with his wife. The following are the words in which he narrated the circumstance in an account he sent to a local paper : — ' I saw approaching from the sea what at first appeared to be a gigantic starfish, but upon its coming into shallow water I recognised it as an octopus, or 'devil-fish.' It came close to my feet, evidently making towards me ; I struck it with a gun-cleaner which. I held in my hand, and instead of retreating, as I expected, it seized the rod with one of its legs or suckers, extending its leg along the whole length of the rod. I endeavoured to pull it away, but the beast still followed me, and climbed on to a rock where I stood. It then released its hold; and wen...
NEW CALEDONIA AND ITS NICKEL MINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 May 1876
NEW CALEDONIA AND ITS NICKEL MINES. An experienced Victorian miner and mine manager, who has lately returned after a lengthened visit to New Caledonia (whither he was aeut on a tour of inspection by certain Melbourne capi talists), has supplied The Argus with a few of tbe facts collected by him iu the couree of mis travels. The principal nickel mines rtow being worked are, he states, on tbe east coast of the island. . The Ballard mine, at Onilaw, and M. Haukai'4 mine at Kaunula, are the moBt important of these, and are being energetically worked, their output of ore being of the value of about £1,000 a mouth. Most of it is sent to France. Contracts have been entered into, under which all the ore that can be produced will be taken by continental European countries, and the demand is much greater than can be met until more mines are opened up. Most of the capital invested in tbe mines now at work is Melbourne capital. The Bank of Noumea advances freely upon ore at tbe rate of from £20...
The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 May 1876
At the Theatre Royal Mr. and Mrs. Lingard have con tinued to advance in public favour. Their acting in Byron's comedy, ' Our Boys,' has received high commendation. Mr. Dampier, Mr. Appleton, Miss Carey, and Miss Jenny Bryce have like wise contributed to the great success which has attended the performance of the play. Mr. Lingard also appeared as David Garrick in the comedy of that name. Gilbert's charming production, *' Sweethearts,' has been reproduced, and, with 'Our Boys-' kept triumphant possession of the stage for Bome weeks. At the Opera-house Mr. Emmet played for some weeks,' with a slight intermission, in 'rritzj,', and the. pieces is still performed. The fact that these pieces have^ kept -the stage so long, and that they have already been ^fully noticed in our columns, dispenses with the necessity of any extended notice this 'month. '
THE LATE SIR R. D. HANSON, CHIEF JUSTICE OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 May 1876
THE LATE SIR R. D. HANSON, CHIEF JUSTICE OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Of the deceased gentleman, who died rather unexpectedly on March 4, the following biography is given by the Adelaide corre spondent of The Argus : — Sir Richard Hanson's colonial career commenced with the year 1846, and for three years after his arrival here his chief employment was in connexion with the press. This was no new work to him, for while in London, although he bad been trained to the law, he acted for some time as reporter for the Morning Clironicle and as sub-editor of the Globe. Coming here be resumed his literary habits until he saw a fitting opening to practise his profession as a barrister. His leaders in the Register, which are spoken of as models— for he rarely altered a word — convinced the public that. a writer of singular power was amongst them, and his utterances at the bar soon established his reputation as a skilful pleader and sound lawyer. Such a man could not, in a young community, long keep in ...
SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 May 1876
The first meeting of the Victoria Amateur Turf Club was held on the Dowling ForeBt course, Ballarat, on the 24th March. His Excellency the Governor attended the meeting, which was well patronised. The race for the Victoria Gold Cup, which, was won by Mr. Chirnside's Sailor, was a well contested and exciting one, but most of the others finished in a disappointing manner. Gaffer Grey won the Open Handicap Hurdle Race, Don Silva the Corinthian Flat Race, Postboy the Open Handicap Steeplechase, Hebrides the Maiden Steeple, and Maurice the Amateur Hurdle Race. In the evening Sir George Bowen was entertained at dinner by the members of the Ballarat Club, at the club-house. A good deal of dissatisfaction was expressed at the way in which the horses Postboy and Adonis were run in the Open Steeplechase. Postboy was entered in the name of Mr. Orr, and Adonis in that of Mr. N. Wilson, but both horses belonged to Mr. N. Wilson. No declaration was posted. The autumn meeting of the Australian Joc...
ALBURY, NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 May 1876
ALBURY, NEW SOUTH WAXES. The important and flourishing town of Albnry is situated on , the right bank of tbe Murray River, which is navigable as high: 8a this by steamers, and is spanned at this point by a strong girder bridge. The importance of the town is due in some measure to its advantageous position, atonce on this great river highway and oh the' overland road between Melbourne and Sydney, and in some measure to the fact that it is the centre of a flourishing agricultural and vine-growing district. The railway, which has run up from Melbourne to Wodonga on tbe opposite side of the river, has improved the previously very favourable position of the town. The population of the town is. over 3,000. In the surrounding district tbe famous Albury wines are produced, and tobacco is also largely and successfully grown. The most striking characteristics of Albury are due to, the. fact that it is a border town of New South Wales, and that it is the centre of one of the most important vin...
