ESCAPE OF FENIAN PRISONERS FROM WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 8 July 1876

ESCAPE OF FENIAN PRISONERS FROM V WESTERN AUSTRALIA. ; ? _Thb rescue of six Fenian prisoners from Fremantle on Easter Monday, April 17, created the greatest excitement in Western Australia. The plau of escape appears to' have been well matured, and to have been carried out with much skill and oaring. The following account is taken from the Perth Inquirer i May 17 :_A Mr. Collins, described as an affable, gentlemanly n»an, of fair complexion, and with an English accent, arrived at «uDany m November loafc, per Btoamer from Melbourne, andcamo to Fremantle per Georgette as a first-class passenger. By the same mail a man named Johnson, who possesses the charac teristics of a thorough-going Yankee, arrived as a second-class passenger. Neither of these persons appeared to know each other. Collins stayed at the Emerald Isle Hotel, Fremantle, where a stranger, rejoicing in. the patronymic of Jones, was also stopping, but seemed in no manner to be connected with Collins. A man named Taylor al...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, JULY 8, 1876. OUR CHARITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 8 July 1876

SATURDAY, JULY 8, 1876. OUR CHAKITIES. The number and extent of the charitable institutions of Melbourne often very much impress -visitors and strangers, and conclusions are sometimes drawn in our favour, and sometimes of an opposite nature. The view is sometimes taken that it is to the credit of the humanity and benevolence of the community to have established so many and so richly supported institutions for the relief of distress ; and, on the other hand, it is often held that there must exist a far larger amount of distress than should be found in so small a community to require so many institutions to relieve it. To arrive, however, at the truth of the case, it is requisite to combine both of these views. Doubtless, it is creditable to the charity of the public that such institutions are supported, but to fully estimate their usefulness it is necessary to ask whether this abundance of charitable help is not disproportionate to the real necessities of the com munity, and whether ...

ROBERTS, THE BILLIARD CHAMPION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 8 July 1876

ROBERTS, THE BILLIARD CHAMPION. Roberts, junior, the English champion of billiards, having reached this colony and given some extraordinary exhibitions of his skill during the month, we give, to accompany our illustra tion, the following account of Roberts's career, quoting it from T/ie Argus : — Roberts has not only surpassed hia own father, the billiard champion of England for 21 years, but thrown into the background the great Cook, and for two years no one has been able to cope with his claim upon the 150 guinea cup which constitutes the championship trophy, and which he must hold for five years before he can call it his own. Although Roberts has risen to such eminence in his vocation, he is still a very young man — not yet 30 years old. He was born in 1847, at Ard wick, Manchester, his father being that Roberts who visited Melbourne 12 years ago, when he was in the prime of the won derful powers which had enabled him to completely revolutionise billiards— much in the same way as...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH . [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 8 July 1876

Parliament is to assemble on the 11th inst. It would, in the ordinary course of events, have been called together six weeks earlier, but the last session was protracted to so extraordinary a length that the Government could not, in that case, have found time to prepare their measures for the next session. As far as any intimations of the nature of the business have become public, it is understood that an Electoral Reform Bill, to deal in a practical way with the anomalies in the distribution of representation, will be one of the chief measures to be brought forward. The Treasurer has been busily engaged in examining the financial condition of the colony, with the view of pre paring the financial proposals he has to submit to Parlia ment. Mr. Jones, in a speech delivered recently to some of his constituents at Penshurst, stated that the Govern ment was determined again to bring forward a scheme for the introduction of .direct taxation, so as to distribute the pressure of taxation mor...

The perform ance on June 16 had a Bpeoial interest on account of its being the occasion of the farewell benefit of Miss Eleanor Carey, the young and talented Australian actress, who was leaving this colony for California. The theatre was crowded to excess inva Pai-t8- and even standing room waB scarcely obtainable.

Sketches With Pen. ST. PATRICK'S CATHEDRAL, MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 8 July 1876

Th ' ' iir* ST. PATRICK'S CATHEDRAL, MELBOURNE. St. Patrick's Cathedral, which forms the subject of our sketch, is the moat remarkable of the many religious edifices which adorn the city of Melbourne, and will, when completed, form a monument of the steady faith and patient energy of the Roman Catholic denomination. The cathedral is situated on the Eastern-hill, in the immediate vicinity of tbe Treasury, the Parliament Houses, St. Petex's Church, and other buildings of a public character. The structure was commenced in tbe early days of the colony, and the work has been continued in the face of great difficulties with steady, if at times appa rently intermittent, energy, from that period up to tbe present. Twice had considerable progress been made with tbe building, wben it became apparent that tbe work was not on a sufficiently extensive scale, and a new beginning had to be made. The original designs, prepared at a time when tbe population was scanty and when tbe brilliant future o...

MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 8 July 1876

MUSIC The chief musical event of the month has been the pro duction of Mendelssohn's ' St. Paul ' by the Melbourne Philharmonic Society, on June 13, at the Town-hall. Owing to unfavourable weather the attendance was unfortunately very small. Before the performance of the oratorio, a 'Funeral March,' composed by Mr. J. Summers, the con- ductor of the society, and written in memory of the late Charles Edward Horsley, a former conductor, was played by the orchestra in a way that should have been as satis factory to the composer as to the audience. The solo vocalists in this oratorio were — Miss Pitts, soprano ; Mrs. Ramsden, contralto ; Mr. Armes Beaumont and Mr. Exon, tenors ; and Mr. S. Lamble, basso. These ladies and gen tlemen did their parts very creditably, and had the choral work been given in equal style the performance, as a whole, would have been more successful than it actually was. Of other musical events of the month we may note that the Melbourne Temperance Musical Union ...
