THE LATE MR. JUSTICE CHEEKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 May 1876

THE LATE MR. JUSTICE CHEEKE. The Sydney Morning Herald, in, noticing the, death of this gentleman, says :— We regret to have to record the, death of Mr. Justice Cheeke, one of the puisne judges of the Supreme Court. The deceased gentleman only returned from Europe, after a year's leave of absence, at the end of January last. He was then apparently in robust health, but four days afterwards he was attacked by sciatica. Gout supervened, and Mr. Cheeke was from that time confined to his house. Within the past three or four days the disease took a serious turn, and notwithstanding all the skill and attention that could be bestowed upon the patient by Dr. Roberts and Dr. M'Laurin, death occurred on March 14 from suppressed gout. Mr .Justice Cheeke was the son of Mr. John Mosley Gilbert Cheek, J.P. of Worcestershire, and he was born at Evesham in that county in the year 1811. He was educated at Cambridge, and admitted the bar in England in 1S35. He travelled on circuts for some time. Havi...

STRANGE DOINGS IN SAMOA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 May 1876

STRANGE DOINGS IN SAMOA. An extraordinary state of affairs has existed for some time past in Samoa, occasioned by the conduct of a person sty Hug himself Colonel Stein berger, professing to hold a coromiseion from the United States Government to inouir* into the capabilities and resources of tbe Samoan Island*. He framed a Constitution, giving to himself as 'Premier' tbe powers of a dictator— he being by itg provisions Cbief Executive Officer, Judge of tbe Supreme Court (from whom there is no appeal), and President of the Legislative Council. He did not in any way consult the consuls, but persistently ignored their authority, more parti* cularly that of tbe British and American consul*. He had an armed vessel, the Peerless schooner yacht, sailing about the group, supported by a number of native office-holder?, and by tbe : belief of most of tbe natives that be had the power of the ^American Government at his back, whone vengeance they had to fear should they oppose him.

THE HODGKINSON RIVER GOLD-FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 May 1876

THE HODGKINSON. KIVER GOLD-FIELD. ? Recent official telegrams from Queensland show that the rush to the~ new gold-field discovered on the Hodgkinson River is a total failure, and that great hardship is likely to result to many of the diggers who bo hastily started for the seen* of the. new . discovery. From the accouut given by the special correspondent despatched by the Brisbane Courier we extract the following particulars. Writing from Coo k town he says :?— Tbe new gold-field is entirely on tbe watershed of the Hodg kinson. River, the distance from Cooktown being about 135 miles, and the direction about south-west. Tbe couree to be taken from Cooktown is to make Byeratown, 60 miles west by south, in the first place, and then strike off into new country, in a line slightly to the eastward of south, for a distance of 75 miles. The track from Byerstown lies by way of 'The Nobby' mountain, 15rnilea; the St. George River, 30 miles ; range, 47 miles ; the Mitchell River, 56 miles ; the...

Sketches with Pen A NIGHT IN THE MODEL LODGING-HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 May 1876

A NIGHT IN THE MODEL LODGING-HOUSE. The following interesting sketch on this subject, by 'A Vagabond,' has appeared in The Argus: — Fadlis ducensvs Averni— the road to ruin is proverbially ea»y. . - But tbe word ruin has many different significations. . The Duke of Diddleaex a short time back was said to be ruined. After spending his time and substance in riotous living, he thought to retrieve his fortunes by plunging heavily on the turf. He attempted to break the ring, bat, as usual, that institution was too much for the amateur, and the ring broke him. The Duke gracefully retired to the Continent, and lives in elegant ease on the few thousands - which yearly fall to his share after payment of the interest on tbe mortgage on his estates. As for those creditors who are not secured, wby they may go hang, the wants of a Doke cannot bg curtailed to satisfy some miserable tradesmen who donLtlesg charged him 50 per cent, above the value of their goods.. The Hon. Fisk Allan, ex-senator an...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, MAY 13, 1876. CUSTOM-HOUSE DUTIES AND PUBLIC MORALITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 May 1876

SATURDAY, MAT 13, 1876. CUSTOM-HOUSE DUTIES AND PUBLIC MORALITY. Oxe obvious objection to taxation through the Gustom-. house is that it holds out an inducement to break the law by smuggling. This objection, in its general form, does not call for much consideration, inasmuch as it is so plain that any other way that could be devised for raising revenue would certainly be attended by attempts to evade it in some method or other. The reluctance to pay money, except for an immediate equivalent, and to pay taxes in particular, is so strong that even in the minds of many otherwise respectable people there is a belief that it is a very venial offence, at the worst, to cheat the Customs, and one that is almost a virtue in disguise. But as revenue must be raised, this condition must be faced, and all that has to be seen to is that the form in which the taxation is imposed is such as to present as little temptation as possible to average mankind to evade it. It has often been remarked that o...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 May 1876

The chief recent occurrences in our musical world have been as follow : — At the Town-hall on Saturday evening, the 25th March, a concert was given for the purpose of raising a fund to enable a young lady, Miss L. Blackhara, to pursue her musical studies in Europe. Miss Blackham is q\iite a young singer, and as yet untrained. She has a pure soprano voice of high range and good quality. There was a large attendance, and the entertainment was a pecuniary success. Madame Carandini, Mrs. Cutter, Miss Christian, Mrs. Smythe, Mr. E. Farley, Mr. S. Lanable, and others assisted as vocalists ; Mr. John Hill, K.S., R.A.M., was organist and conductor. Pending the arrangements which are being made for Miss Blackham's departure, she has been placed under the tuition of Madame Lucy Chambers, of this city. On the 29th Madame Victorine Pett gave her annual concert at the Prahran Town-hall, which was well attended. On the same date, at the Temper ance-hall, the Melbourne Temperance Musical Union, co...

THE CUSTOM-HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 May 1876

THE CUSTOM-HOUSE. The people of Melbourne have for so many years past become accustomed to the sight of unfinished public. building?, tbat when one is at lasi'completed, it is looked' upon almoBtas a new erection; Such is; the case with the Cub torn- house' in Flinderp. street. ^ For a long time the unfinished front of the old Custom house -looked down upon thpie who came up the river in tbe intercolonial eteamere'. Those who were unaccustomed to the dark* and winding 'labyrinths to be found in the interior of tbe building' frequently-lost an hour in wandering about the cold, miserable, and dreary passages before they found the room which they had been seeking for. That is all chauged now, and where there were formerly cold, damp passages and rooms of uninviting interior, are now to be found bright, warm-looking corridors and cosy rooms, in which business can be transacted with pleasure and comfort. All this change has taken place in about 20 month?, that being the time since which ...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 May 1876

i-'^^^**'' -*^^^*mm™ 'm''m*m'^^**^*^^'^^^ ™~~^ After the weariness and turmoil of the late prolonged an-? barren Parliamentary session, our political life has sunk into a state of absolute quietude. There is not much in the past session that the public mind can dwell upon with any complacency, aud no one cares to anticipate the troubles and possible humiliations of the next. It is pleasant to be able to forget that there are such men as many of the most prominent personages of the last session ia existence. A too frequent repetition of those disgraceful scenes would deprive the proceedings of Parliament of any interest amongst intelligent and patriotic men, and it would almost seem that some members have this before them as a very desirable object to attain, that, under cover of the general apathy and indifference, they might prosecute their nefarious schemes without attracting notice. In the absence of politics of any kind, we have been getting through the silly season with such ma...

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 June 1876

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. The Argus in its last monthly summary reports : — The prin cipal item of news in connexion with gold-mining during the past month has been the discovery of a tich gold ?bearing reef at a depth of 1,060ft. in the claim of the Oriental Company, at Stawell. A crushing of stone from the reef was cleaned up on Mondtty hiet,_when 7-& tons yielded 4Soz. 5dwt. gold, or the excellent average of 6oz. Sdwt. lGgr. per ton. The lode was only struck on the previous Monday, and the Btone was merely taken out for a trial crushing. The great depth from which the quartz was obtained, and the richness of the yield, render tbe crushing exceptionally important, not only for Stawell. where many mines are now being woiked at great depths, but also for the whole colony ; and the theory which has been gaining ground now for some time thac quartz reefs will retain their auriferous' character deep into the earth as well as near the surface, may almost be considered satisfacto...
