S K E T C H E S I N F I J I. FIJI SKETCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 October 1873

S K E T C H E S I N F I J I. PARLIAMENT HOUSE, LEVUKA. A NATIVE HUT. ' FIJI SKETCHES. Anything which tends to throw any light on thc position of thc Fiji group, socially or otherwise, must he acceptable at the present time. We are therefore glad to be able to place before our readers two illustrations of a portion of the town of Levuka, and also two plantation views and a native hut. It may be well to premise that the Fijian group of islands number about 200, three-fourths of which are inhabited; the remainder are small rocky islets, unfit for occupation. It may also be well to correct the prevailing opinion that this group represents tho whole of the South Pacific, and whatever occurs in any portion thereof must necessarily be credited to Fiji. The extent of the group is about 200 miles square, and there are no other islands nearer than 500 miles, the Solomon, Hebrides, and other groups from which the imported laborers are usually ob- tained, being from 1000 to 1200 miles dis- tant...

OYSTER BAY, EAST COAST OF TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

OYSTER BAY, EAST COAST, TASMANIA^ OYSTER BAY, EAST COAST OF TAS- i MANIA. This view represents Oyster Bay, with the Schouten Island, fourteen miles distant, in front ; Freycinet's Peninsula, a lofty range on the mainland extending northerly to the Douglas River, to the left of the island; and in the distance to the right, a glimpse of the northern end of Maria Island, with Waterloo Point, showing part of the little township of Swansea in front. It will be seen that the bay is beautifully protected from tempest, the only wind having any force being from the south. There is a fine sandy beach, ex- tending nine miles in a semicircular bend from the peninsular on the left side to the township, and the bay has generally the ap- pearance of a quiet lake. . The coast scenery from Swansea southward is not visible in this view, but it is remarkably fine from its boldness and variety. The Schouten Island is a lofty mountain range, composed of granite on the' eastern side, and greenstone on th...

piWtratícms. Poems : Sawed and Secular. By the Rev. Dr. Lang. We are forced, by want of space, to hold over our review of this volume until next issue. The Critic. This well-conducted little journal goes on its - way with increasing popularity. Its articles on the subject of public abuses are likely to be of general service, and there is always abundance of lighter reading for those who prefer trifles to more substantial literary food. An article on " Gaol Disci- pline," which appeared recently, has attracted considerable public attention.

ANSWER TO CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

ANSWER TO CORRESPONDENT. [ A WOULD-BE POET.-In answer to your I query, we would remind you of Cicero's I maxim, that "A poet is born, not made." I So far as the mechanical construction of verse is concerned, it is an art, uu I doubtedly ; and practice, with the pos« I session of a musical ear and attention to a few fundamental rules, will, possibly, I enable you to attain to it. The book we would recommend is called " A i Bhyming Dictionary," published by j James Hogg, Edinburgh. It also cou I tains a suggestive "Essay on Versifica ' tion. " We have noticed the book at Andrews' Book Mart, near the School of j Arts, Pitt-street.

WHAT GREAT MEN HAVE BEEN FOND OF. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

WHAT GREAT MEN HAVE BEEN FOND OF. I WHO would have imagined that the grave, ' philosophic Socrates, during his hours oi j leisure, took pleasure in dancing? Yet it was so. Many other wise men besides Soc- rates have taken great delight in music. Epaminondas used to take pleasure in sing- ing at village festivals. The cruel Nero fiddled while Rome was burning ; at least, he played the harp, for there were not, aa yet, fiddles in those days. Luther delighted in playing the flute, and thus used to soothe his excited feelings. Frederick II, of Prus- sia allayed the most violent agonies of mind with the same instrument. An hour's play- ing generally sufficed to reduce him to per- fect tranquillity. Milton delighted in play- ing the organ, and composed several fine psalm tunes, which are to this day sung in our churches. Bentham was passionately fond of music, and played the organ ; there was scarcely a room in his house without a piano. Gainsborough, the painter, was a capital performer ...

Types of Colonial Life. THE LEVANTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

Oppeô oí Colonial Etfe THE LEVANTER. By George E. Loyau. A FEW years back absconders, or, as they are commonly termed, Levanters, were un- known in the colonies, but of late so nume- rous have beén their elopements from our cities that they may be considered as having aright to rank among "Types of Colonial Life." Certain islands in the South Pacific, rich in natural productions, and remote from the fangs of the law, have long presented to the lawless and unprincipled a sort of Para- dise, to which, when fleeing from justice, they can betake themselves. Hundreds of persons once holding high appointments in Melbourne and Sydney having, by indiscreet speculations, reached the verge of bank- ruptcy, in order to avoid the evils which such must entail on them, have gone thither, and with the cash of others endeavoured to establish themselves in a new land. But let us take them in regular order, for levanters occupy various grades of society, and some little distinction in the scale of ro...

THE NORTH-EASTERN LINE OF RAILWAY, VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

THE NORTH-EASTERN LINE OP RAILWAY, VICTORIA. THIS line of railway has been constructed as far as Wangaratta, a distance from Mel- bourne of 159 miles. The iron road runs through a fine agricultural and pastoral country, which, though not as a rule charac- terised by beauty and diversity of scenery, yet presents at points many striking and pic- turesque features. Our first sketch gives a correct and not uninteresting picture of the Wangaratta station on the occasion of the arrival of the first train, which is decorated with flags and evergreens. The township contains about 2000 inhabitants, and is situated near the junction of the Ovens and King rivers, and within twenty-five miles of the boundary of this colony, taking the nearest point to the Murray. Like most country towns, it is not a particularly lively place to reside in, but it is healthy, daily improving in importance, and must ulti- mately become the centre of a very flourish- ing and extensive district. The " old bridge ove...

HOLE AND CORNER LIEE IN SYDNEY. —No. 3. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

HOLE AND CORNER LIEE IN SYDNEY. -No. 3. WE concluded our last rambling, scrambling paper on the "Hole and Corner " scenes and characters of Sydney in the middle of a dis- sertation on the man who puts a smiling face upon our boots. On the curb-stone he places his foot-box, a pair of brushes and a bottle of blacking complete bis equipment, and he is ready for work. A showery morning ending in a sunny afternoon is the glorious time for him, for there is no leisure to run home to dissipate the early mud, and boots must be bright if conquests are to be made during the " after- noon crawl " up and down George-street. Often, too, the boot-black takes up an early position near some lodging-house or hotel, and as these always contain some indolent resi- dents who would rather sleep an hour than work a minute, he is generally blessed with a perfect shower of elastic-sides and bluchers, which he puts into a state of polish at his leisure. It is a remarkable fact that drunken men invariably se...

SERIOUS OMNIBUS ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

SERIOUS OMNIBUS ACCIDENT. YESTERDAY afternoon an accident occurred to one of the Glebe 'buses, which might have been attended with serious conse- quences to the occupants of the vehicle. As it is, the driver and one passenger have both been very badly injured, the latter having sustained a fracture of both thighs and one arm. It appears that the horses got upon the footpath near the connection of the Glebe Point Road with Parramatta-street, and dislodging the fence which prevents passen- gers from falling into a deep precipice, over- j turned the omnibus into the place alluded to. Fortunately, only three persons occupied the vehicle, or the consequences would have been still moré disastrous.

MOUNT COOK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

MOUNT COOK. MOUNT Cook is the highest mountain in New Zealand, towering some 13,200 feet above the level of the sea, forming almost the central peak, of the great back-bone range extending from Cape Farewell to Cape Providence, the two extreme points of the Middle Island. The point of view Mr. Gully has selected from which to take this beautiful picture is near the mouth of the river Para Para, showing a portion of the lagoon. Mount Cook, from this point, pre- sents one of the grandest spectacles that the mind can conceive, covered with perpetual snow, seamed with great glaciers bordered by large moraines, and surrounded by an array of lesser snow-clad giants. The pic- ture is one that, once seen, can never be for- gotten, even by.those to whom the great Swiss Mountains are familiar.

BIRTHDAY OF CAPTAIN COOK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

BIRTHDAY OF CAPTAIN COOK. WHAT a standing disgrace that empty pedestal in Hyde Park is to the public of New South Wales ! and what a shameful oversight it was, that of all the hundred and odd newspapers published in the colony between the 27th October last and the present date, not one of them referred to that occasion, as being the anniversary of the birth of the greatest voyager (Columbus alone excepted) and one of the best of men thé world has ever seen Captain Cook ! The human race generally has never been remarkable for the duration of its gratitude to men who have worked and died for the common good. The soldier, that greedily plucks spoil from the bosom of a bleeding country ; the merchant that in times of national calamity, retails his counterfeit wares at fifty-fold their value, and thus often by a single avaricious act ; secures to himself a heavy fortune ; the sham senator, that brawls and babbles his way to lucrative places in the community-each demands and receives his ...

A TRIP UP THE HAWKESBURY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

A TRIP UP THE HAWKESBURY. YESTERDAY fortnight, : several gentlemen, conspicuous amongst whom were Messrs. Jeanneret and Maddock, of this city, .inaugu- rated a public pléasure trip to view the beauties of the Hawkesbury River. Lying within about forty miles of our city, the sylvan loveliness of this charming river is as little known as if it were situated in Germany, and the time is fast arriving when we dwellers in Sydney should begin to arouse from bur apathy, and take an interest in the beauty which surrounds us. ; We have too long subscribed to the notion that anything which is not obtained by means of time, trouble, distance, and expense is utterly valueless ; and if Anthony Trollope, ' whose opinion ought to be worth something, will have been the instrument of arousing our dead sense of the beautiful, he will have done us New South Welshmen a kindly turn. . As we intend to quote at length from his chapter on the subject, we shall not go into detailed descriptions of the scener...

The Month. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

THE political world this month received as great a shock as if aa earthquake had given a shivering fit to the old Macquarie-street I walls, and honorable members were appre- hensive of the ancient building toppling about their honorable ears. They need scarcely be afraid of a physical disintegra- tion of the legislative bricks and mortar, after the trials they have sustained from serious and oft-repeated explosions of verbal gas. Nor was the alarm occasioned by any enthusiastic admirer of the unparliamentary Fawkes undertaking to commemorate the anniversary of the ill-fated Guy by a similar exploit. The " sensation " was produced by the conferring of the Chief Justiceship on Sir James Martin, when it was all settled in the public mind that the judicial wig was to -grace the brows of the existing Attorney General. Nor was the commotion in the public mind solely, or chiefly, produced by the fact of the worthy knight succeeding to the vacated judgeship. Sir James Martin has too many fr...
