The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 5 August 1876

At the Theatre Koyal the most noticeable event has been the essay of the part of Hamlet by Mr. Dampier, and his distinguished success. Writingof the performance, 'Tahite ' the dramatic critic of The Australasian, said: — That Mr Dainpier had long been a notable favourite with the public there could be no sort of doubt. He had played all sorts of characters — some admirably, some moderately well, anil some perhaps a little less than moderately, but in none could he be said to have failed. Nevertheless^ to be candid, I think there were doubts as to his entire fitness for giving Hamlet with a true Shakspearian relish ; and this notwithstanding the well-understood belief that no intelligent actor can quite fail in the part, seeing how the momentum of its own inseparable interest is able to carry it on even under circum stances which would seem to militate against its entire success on the stage. Probably Mr. Dampier himself had a presentiment of this feeling, and though confident — as t...

THE CENTENNIAL EXHIBITION AT PHILA­DELPHIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 5 August 1876

THE CENTENNIAL EXHIBITION AT PHILA DELPHIA. In illustration of our views of tbe main building and the Memorial-hall for the exhibition of paintings and sculptures at the great world's show at Philadelphia, we quote the following descriptions from the letter of the special correspondent of The Aryus: — The situation of tbe Exhibition buildings is most pic turesque. Fairrnouut-park — the pleasure-ground of Philadelphia — is about half an horn's journey in a street car from tbe centie of traffic— that is at ordinary times, but on such an occasion as tbe present tbe time may be lengthened out to two hours or more. At tbe time the plans were laid the park was in the country. Houses have since grown up thickly, and the vicinity is populous. Tbe city has extended itself to tbe park-gates, and filled up all the spaces that formerly intervened between tbo almost busy street and the fashionable drive. Tbere baa been provision from tbe first for an extent-ion imcb as this, for it may be rememb...

SHOCKING MASSACRES IN THE SOUTH SEAS. Intelligence has, within the last few weeks, been received of two terrible massacres committed by natives of the South Sea Islands upon the crews of vessels engaged in the labour trade. One of these was first announced to us by a telegram from Sydney on July 5, in the following terms :— The schooner Dancing Wave arrived here last night from the Solomon Group, under the charge of the mate of the barque Sydney, Captain Harrison and all hands excepting one on board the Dancing Wave having been murdered. The following are the particulars of the massacre :— On the 22nd of April last the Dancing Wave called at Florida Island to obtain native labour for Somerset. A number of natives were engaged and brought on board, and there were also a number of others who had received tomahawks and other articles from the captain in barter. Without warning, the natives rose upon the crew, attacking them with tomahawks. Captain Harrison was almost instantly killed, ...

STRANGE SCENE IN THE NEW SOUTH WALES ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 5 August 1876

STRANGE SCENE IN THE NEW SOUTH WALES ASSEMBLY. The following description is taken from tbe Sydney Morning Herald of July 15 : — The debate on the want of confidence motion brought forward by Mr. Fitzpatrick was brought to a close at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, by a scene unparalleled   in the Parliamentary history of this if not of any other country. The proceedings or the House were not concluded when we went to press yesterday morning. Two or three attempts to adjourn the debate were successfully resisted by large majorities on each occasion, the last division on a motion for adjournment being taken about 5 o'clock, when 19 members voted for the motion and 29 against it. At daybreak tbe Chamber was a scene of haggard faces, unkempt beads, littered floor, and general disorder. Tbe long sitting from half-past 4 o'clock on the previous afternoon had demoralised the House. Members grew   careless about tbe debate on the main question, and under motions for...

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 5 August 1876

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. The Argus in its last monthly summary reported : — There is very little news of importance to record this month with regard to gold mining in Victoria. The industry is being carried on steadily by the 40,000 miners employed in it, and so far as is recorded with the ordinary payable results from the claims which are auriferous, but there have been no specially heavy returns reported either in alluvial or quartz mining — the two branches into which the industry is divided. It is evident, however, that quartz-mining, which of late years has made such rapid strides that it has surpassed alluvial mining, is still extending, and is likely to do so. The fact is very important to the future interests of Victoria, because a quartz-mine, as a rule, furnishes employment for many years, whilst an alluvial mine is often worked out in a few weeks. A quartz mine also often gives constant employment to from 100 to 200 men, but alluvial claims, with the exception of those o...

Sketches with Pencil THE STEAMER BARRABOOL IN DUKE'S DOCK AFTER THE COLLISION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 2 September 1876

THE STEAMER BAKBABOOL IN DTJKE's DOCK AFTER THE COLLISION. It is difficult to believe, were not the fact well known, that a steamer which has had its bows so terribly shattered as were those of the Barrabool in the collision that sank the Queensland, could safely make its way to port. The extent of the damage the steamer sustained may be judged from our illustration, which presents a faithful picture of the condition of the steamer as she was taken into dock, and before anything was done to her in the way of repair. An account at the time she was lying, at the 'WiUiamstown break water, before going into dock, said that the steamer 'was an object of great interest to the large number of persons who visited her, and she certainly presented a most .extra ordinary appearance. Before the collision she had a straight stem without any bowsprit, but now she appears as if about Cft. of her bow had been cut clean off, for everything is gone as far aft as the capstan, the spindle of which now ...

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 2 September 1876

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDSi Tan Argus in its last monthly summary reported : — The past montti has been rather barren of news in connexion with alluvial mining, but several incidents have occurred in quartz-mining which are of importance, inasmuch as they are confirmation!) of the opinions now held here almost universally that quartz* mining will continue profitable at great depths, and that the resources of the colony in the matter of quartz reefs are so exteusive that they will furnish employment fur many thousands of men for ut least a century from tbe present time. About three weeks aeo considerable excitement was cauned on Stawell, which in now the second quartz-reefing town ia Victoria, through the Oriental Company there obtaining Bome of the richest quartz ewr found in tbe district.. The stone was got at the great depth ofl.OGO't., and as no payable quartz- in quantity bad previously been obtained from such a depth in Victoria, the discovery of it was most encouraging, not only...

THE LATE REV. A. M. HENDERSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 2 September 1876

THE LATE REV. A. M. HENDERSON. News by cable lately brought intelligence of the death at Toronto of the Rev. A. M. Henderson, late minister of the ? Collins-street Congregational Church. Mr. Henderson was a native of the North of Ireland, and was formerly attached to the Wesleyan body, but for some time before coming to this colony he had been connected with the' Congregational section of the religious world. He came to Victoria about 11 years ago, on the invitation of the Richmond church, but within the same year be was requested to take charge of the Collins-street church, which, at that time, from various causes, had been greatly reduced in numbers, and stood much in need of a revival of its formerly, possessed importance. Mr. Henderson at once entered into the work of accomplishing this desired result, and it was mainly through his efforts that the old and incommodious structure at the corner of Russell-street was removed, and the present stately edifice erected. During the prog...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1876. REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 2 September 1876

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1876. REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT IN AUS TRALIA. There certainly is not very much in the working of representative government in these colonies to create or justify any enthusiastic admiration for this system in an impartial observer. It is now many years since the Prince Consort drew down on himself a good deal of solemn rebuke for venturing to declare that ' representative '?' institutions are Btill on their trial.' Few persons who watch with any attention the Parliamentary and political proceedings in the various colonies of Australia will be disposed to dissent very widely from the assertion of that enlightened prince. They are on their trial, and the trial often strains them in a way that leaves it doubtful whether the system can endure the rough test to which it is subjected. It is, of course, easy to make out a case on behalf of the way in which these institutions are worked in these communities. It may be said that under their auspices equitable laws are...
