CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 June 1876

There is 'still very little to report of a political nature; It is understood that Parliament will not be called together before the first week in July, the financial provision made last session being sufficient to meet requirements till that time. xhe Government has held Cabinet meetings with the view of shaping the measures that are to be brought forward next session. Amongst these an Electoral Reform Bill will/ it is expected, hold an important place, the object of the measure being to redress the anomalies existing * in our representation owing to the movements of population. The subject of making some arrangement for intercolonial free trade has been brought under the notice of the Ministry by the Governments of the neighbouring colonies, but although it is conceded oh all sides that Buch an arrangement, if practicable, would be very desirable, as soon as any attempt is made to pass from vague generalities into specific details the matter is seen to be fraught with difficulties...

THE FIRE BRIGADE DEMONSTRATION AT BALLARAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 June 1876

THE FIRE BRIGADE DEMONSTRATION AT BALLARAT. The fourth annual demonstration of the fire brigades com* menced at Ballarat on May 23. The firBt two occasions on which the festival was held took place at Melbourne, and last year at Sandhurst, so that it was only fitting that the second city of the colony should have the honour assigned to it this year. The idea of varying the locality of the pageant is a good one, as it is not only convenient to the neighbouring brigades, but affords a very much larger number of people an opportunity of viewing a mosc pleasing spectacle than could possibly, be the case if one particular spot were always selected for it. That there is no diminution in. the interest taken in the demonstration is evinced by the fact that there was a considerably greater muster of firemen this year than in 1875, besides the gratifying circumstance that New Zealand sent several representatives of two of its crack companies, and Sydney one. Last year 35 brigades, comprising ...

THE ACADEMY OF MUSIC: LAYING THE FOUNDATION-STONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 June 1876

THE ACADEMY OF MUSIC : LAYING THE ? FOUNDATION-STONE. The ceremony of laying the foundation-stone of the Academy of Music by His Excellency Sir George Bowen, in Bourke-street, took place on the afternoon of May 23. The affair excited, the most lively interest in the minds of those citizens who bad an afternoon- to while away, and long before the ceremony com menced every post of vantage giving a view- of the scene was densely crowded. The walls and scaffolds were all occupied by the workmen employed on the building and their acquaintances; every window in tbe neighbourhood blossomed with heads — mostly female ; and the Btreeb was closely packed, with people who could merely get a passing view of the guesto as they entered, and afterwards had to content themselves with gazing at tbe ? hoarding and envyiDg the favoured few who were fortunate in finding an opening in the boards to look through.

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

MUSIC     'We have very little to notice in the way of musical performances, the last few weeks having been singularly barren of incidents of this nature. The Metropolitan Liedertafel gave their twenty-sixth concert at the Melbourne Athenteum on the evening of the 8th May. The hall was den Bel y crowded. Mrs. .Cutter was the principal vocalist, and as usual made the charm of her fine contralto voice to bo greatly admired. Mr. T. H. Guenett, , the' honorary pianist to the society, played the Mendelssohn capriccio in B minor (with orchestral accompaniment) in admirable Btyle. The overture to Mendelssohn's '?'. Son and Stranger, ' and Weber's 'Jubilee,' were given by a small orchestra.. The part singing by the members of the Metropolitan Liedertafel, conducted by Mr. J. Herz, was praiseworthy. On the same evening the Melbourne German Liedertafel gave a hcrren abend, or entertainment for gentlemen only, at their meeting-place, Hockin's assembly-rooms. A varied ...

ON THE ROAD TO THE HODGKINSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 8 July 1876

ON THE ROAD TO THE HODGKINSOK The correspondent of the Brisbane Courier writes as follower There is nothing sensationally interesting in the natural features of the country crossed by the track. With tbe Normanby on our left, and the old Palmer diggings, extending for many scores of miles, on our right and iu front, we had been in the midst of auriferous territory long before reaching Byerstown ; and now, facing southward, we were making for that new El Dorado on the success of which, perhapc, more sanguine expectation had been based than was ever before exhibited in tbe case of any North Queensland go\d- field. For many miles on the road the ravine8und gullies were occupied by groups of Chinese foasickere, and, as ' the colour' goeB, the entire route traversed auriferous country; while localities were not wanting on some of the tribu taries of the St. George, and the Mitchell and HodgkinRoniivere, well worthy tbe attention of the prospector. The prevailing rocks are everywhere sand...

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 8 July 1876

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. Tse Argus in its last monthly summary reported :— There have been no new discoveries of importance chronicled with respect to gold-mining during the past month, but the progress made in the mines regularly worked has been good, and very assuring as regard 8 the future permanency of the mining interest in this colony. The most encouraging matter in the latter respect is the certainty now established that quartz will yield payable gold at great depths from the surface, a fact once generally doubted, more especially by some scientific geological theorists. In last month's summary of The Argus it was mentioned that 6oz. 8d wt. of gold per ton bad been obtained, at a depth of 1, 060ft., from a parcel of about 20 tons of stone taken from the claim of the Oriental Company at Stawell, and that other companies had found payable gold at about 1,000ft. The depth at which the Oriental atone was got was the greatest from which payable quartz had heretofore been taken in...

The incident in the recent disturbances in Fiji depicted in our sketch is described in the following extract from the Fiji Argus, of May 5, which says: — 'We have been furnished with authentic news as to the late disturbance raised by the Na Qaqa and other petty marauding tribes of the interior of Viti Levu.

MYSTERY AT HAWTHORN. Gbkat interest was excited a few weeks ago by a tragic and mysterious affair which has taken place at Hawthorn. A widow named Ann Thompson, 45 years of age, who had carried on the business of a drapery store for the laBt 15 Tears in Burwood road, disappeared in a very unaccountable way on Easter Monday.

During Easter a niece of Mrs. Thompson paid a visit to their house, and states that when the three were out dr...
