In these sketches our artist has presented the results of a visit made to this newly-opened gold-field,' which has of late attracted a good deal of notice, and has revived, as our illustrations show, some of the aspects familiar in the diggings of old times. The view, indeed, is almost exactly similar, save in one respect, and that is that paling and shingle shanties take the place of the universal tents of early days. The main street, forming' the subject of our first illustration, is like all other main streets at a new rush— a few shanties and stores irregularly strewn along the sides of a random-looking road, on the sides of which and sometimes in the middle of which shafts are b...

Sketches Pen with VOLUNTEER REVIEW. —QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 June 1876

VOLUNTEER REVIEW.— QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY. Two years having elapsed since the members of the volunteer force bad an opportunity of manoeuvring in the field, there was a general expression of satisfaction among the nieu when it was notified tuat a review and field evolutions would take place on the, Queen's Birthday, and that the men are willing to turn out when possible was plainly ; evinced by tbe large attendance, when more than 2,700 men gave up their holiday in order to have a day's steady drill. The days are so Phort at this season tbat of course as much manoeuvring as possible bad to be done in tbe limited time available'. In is, however, satisfactory to say that tbe field-day was one of the; best that has been seen for many years. The movements were good, and tbe men were steady, whereas, on some former occasions, it has been noticed tbat tbe men became excited and unsteady, and broke tbeir formation, which would bave caused their anuihilationhad they been iu actual warfare.

The Theatres. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 June 1876

Under this head we have not much to report this month. This is not due to dulness and depression of theatrical matters, but rather to an opposite cause — that the pieces produced have enjoyed so much success and kept so long possession of the stage, that there is nothing to be said about them which has not been already said. At the Theatre Royal the comedy of ' Our Boys ' was, after a most successful run, temporarily withdrawn for the pro duction of Byron's latest comedy, 'Married in Haste,' which was also highly appreciated. Mrs. Lingard's acting as Ethel Grainger was deservedly commended, and Mr. Lingard, Mr. Darn pier, and Mr. Appleton gave very effective representations of their different characters. The comedy of ' Our Boys' has again been revived in compliance with. a general request. On May 20th the burlesque of ' Pluto, or the Magic Lyre,' founded on Byron's ' Orphexis and Eurydice,' was produced. This piece, we are told, was performed for a long time with great success in A...

MUST RMLHSIMN KCTCHER SATURDAY, JUNE 10. 1876. "EXAMPLES FROM EUROPE". [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 June 1876

^i^^MPLE^-mQ^BOT'QPE/' the cleverlecture delivered byoir Charles G. Duffy, on May 9, at the Athenreum-hall. There is a shallow self sufficiency often visible in colonial life which needs frequent reminding, that as our civilisation was brought with us from Europe, so is it needful often to observe the advances that are being made there, to save us from being left hopelessly in the rear. 'We received a good start. The inherited civilisation wrought out by the labours of mankind in thousands of years was our fortune to begin life with. All the discoveries and inventions in the ?world of thought and science., and in the more material ?world of every- day life and practical mechanism, -were given to us, not as the reward of long labours and struggles, but as a present at the outset. The gift was a rich and invaluable one, but it by no means follows that it is all- sufficient. 'We are not to consider that we can now safely depend on our own exertions and inventions to keep us in an even ...

THE LAST TASMANIAN NATIVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 June 1876

THE LAST TASMANIA]* NATIVE. Whiting on the subject of the death of the last member of (his race, the Hobart Town Mercury of MayjO says : — Trucaninni, or Lull a llookh, as she was Bometimes jcalled, the last of the aborigines of Tasmania, passed away to her eternal rest yesterday afternoon, at the residence, in Macquatie-street, of her pro uct.resf, Mrs. D uid ridge. The death of this last scion of a once numerous race is au event in the history of Tasmania of no common interest; and io may well serve to ' point a moral and adorn a tale' on the quention of the gradual but certain extinc tion of the aboriginal races of these southern lands. . Of Trucanini we shall no doubt hear many interesting narratives now that she bus departed this world ; but at present we must content ourselves with a few brief facts concerning her life and death, leaving it to others who' have leisure and opportunity to favour the public with more extended notices respecting her. That she was a Queen is an adm...

SPORTINC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 June 1876

Since the autumn race meeting of the Australian Jockey Club, at JRandwick, there was for some time nothing of interest in connexion with the turf. However, on the 24th of May, the Queen's Birthday, several events occurred, of which the more noticeable were the Kensington-park Meeting, the Ballarat Miners' Races, and the Bendigo Jockey Club Autumn Meeting. At Kensington there was an attendance of not less than 4,000. For the Handicap Hurdle Race there were eight starters, Asmodeus having the call in the betting. The winner, however, was found in Larrikin, with Welshman second, and Asmodeus third. The Trotting Race was not an ' interesting match. The favourite, Wanderer, secured first honours, beating Bessie by several lengths. In the Selling Stakes, the fast little animal, Benham, won the prize, beating a field of six others. The Steeplechase was the event of the meeting, exciting most interest. The race was won by the favourite, Athol, after a good struggle with Firetail. The Nurser...

GEELONG IN 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 June 1876

GEELONG IN 1840. Mb. Samuel Mossjian, who sent us the sketch of Melbourne in 1S40, published in our issue of July, 1875, has forwarded one of Geelong, sketched by himself in tbe same year, an engraving of which we present to our readers in this number. In the descriptive memorandum accompanying it, he lays no claim to artistic merit in its execution, but states that the outline of the embryo town as it then appeared is faithfully given. The view was taken from tbe rising ground on the easb eide, overlooking part of Corio Bay, where two small coasterB are seen at anchor. ' In one of these, the cutter Devonshire,' Mr. Mossman says, ' I made the voyage from Melbourne, which took upwards of two days and ziiyhts to accomplish what is now performed by steamers in five or six hours. Although this vessel did not measure more than 20 tonB burthen, it was one of the largest that could navigate the channel at the entrance to Corio Bay when deeply laden, in consequence of a bar there with shoal...
