EXTENSIVE FRAUDS ON BANKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

EXTENSIVE FRAUDS ON' BANKS. An extensive series of' frauds iipon the Colonial Bank was recently discovered to have been committed by the senior ledger keeper. David Goodwin. Altogether the sum of £10,700 has been obtained by Goodwin, but from the nature of .the processes employed in accomplishing the fraud the bank has expectations of recovering a large portion of the amount. Goodwin having been arrested and brought up at the City Police Court, evidence was given to show that he had falsified tho accounts of certain customers having accounts at the bank — viz., John Mitchell, grocer, Prahran ; Joseph Johnson,' a Government officer: Wm. Kenny, of the St. Kilda bathing ship ; and Edwin Geach, wholesale draper, Melbourne. Goodwin's modus operandi was to borrow money from a customer, say he had repaid tho loan to the customers account, enter the supposed repayment in the customer's pass-book or give him fictitious vouchers, balance the accouilts by making false entries, and borrow more ...

STRANGE RECORD OF DANGER AND AD ,' ' . .VENTURE. The following remarkable story of castaways is ' from the Southern Gross, Auckland, New Zealand:— The schooner Prima Donna arrived in Auckland harbour on the 27th May, from Tahiti, vid Earotonga, and to Captain, Norris we have to acknow ledge our indebtedness for the the following particulars, received by him from one of the survivors, of the casting away of two men on an uninhabited island for over two years, their only sub sistence during that time being cocoanuts : — On December 10, 1870; Mr. Chafe, overseer at the guano works, Starbuck. Island, finding that the schooner expected from the colonies with pro visions (and then long overdue) had not arrived, determined to proceed to Maiden Island for supplies for himself and men: On the day named he therefore left Starbuck Island in a whale'ooat manned by six Kanakas.

OUR AMERICAN BUTTERFLY VISITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

OUR AMEMCAN BUTTERFLY VISITOR. OtiB illustration represents two views, of ke natural size, of a .strikingly handsome butterfly, which suddenly appeared for the first time in Victoria a few months ago. It -was first noticed near Melbourne on the 1st of March of this year, by Professor M'Coy, who identified it as the Danais Arehippus, one of the most abundant of American butterflies from Canada to Brazil. He had received it also the year before from North Australia, Queensland, and the northern part of New South Wales, as some novel kind. It had not only never been recorded in Aus tralia before, but was unknown in those immense intervening regions. It is of a very rich and beautiful brown, bordered and veined with black, spotted with white' above, as in our lower figure, which is from a specimen caught in the streets of Melbourne. The upper figure is from a specimen caught at Portland, showing the under surface, which of the lower wings is more ashy or eafd au lait colour. The mode of...

SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

Eighty-nine entries for the Melbourne Cup, the great betting race of the year as it is termed, are the best proof that can be offered that the great and- national sport of horse-racing flourishes. Of these entries there are 28 from New South Wales, 11 from ? South Australia, four from New Zealand, one from Western Australia, and one from Tasmania — the veteran Strop. The handicap appeared on the 20th June, and it is not received with any great amount of satisfaction by owners of horses. It commences at 9st. 91b. , with Mr. Ryan's fine horse The Ace, and finishes at 5st. 71b. Mr. Joseph Thompson, the well-known bookmaker, was so dissatisfied with the weight put on his game little horse, King of the Ring, viz., 8.^: lib. for a four year old, that he scratched him at once. This is to.be regretted, as 'Hhe King' is a- favourite with Victorians, and his owner a popular man on the turf, for although a bookmaker,' his horses have always run as true as possible ; however, we suppose Mr. Bar...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

Mbs. Phelps's engagement at the Theatre Royal was originally for a fortnight, and it was extended to a- month. It terminated on the 21st ult., and she may be congratulated upon having quito re-established herself in the good opinion of the majority of theatre-goers after her long absence in America. And. by majority it is to be understood that she thoroughly pleased the ; pit and gallery, the frequenters of which jjarts of the house / constitute by far the largest portion of theatrical people, in this part of the world at least. At oncoj however, it is to be confessed that Mrs. Phelps is not' a dresa:circlo favourite. Her style is bustling, vigorous, lively, and not:, refined. So. that, although she gets very well through rattling Irish, and Scotch'. genre parts, she is put of her element when she approaches what may- generally be described as the senti mental. As a saucy, irrepressible Irishwoman, ready equally with her tongue and her hands, andnot overburthened. with, the stricter...

STRANGE LOSS OF A VESSEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

STRANGE LOSS OF- A VESSEL. A remarkable story of the foundering of a ship and the death of her captain is contained in the following statement of Captain. Hull, master of the barque Lindsay, which has arrived at, Melbourne from Christiahia, Norway: — 'On tho 3rd '.February,' 1873, in, lot. 48° 45' north, Ion. 7° 63' west, we fell in 'with the Satellite, of Liverpopl, bound from Cardiff. to Rio de Janeiro with a cargo of coals'. . Found the vessel in a sinking state, arid Bent a boat with four men. and the mate to her. The. mate found the captain of the Satellite in his cabin, and he refused to leavo the ship.

The coolc, who was the only other person on board, left the sinking ship and came on board of our vessel. We stayed with, tho Satellite until she sank, at about half-past 1 o'clock p.m., and also waited about for some considerable time afterwards, in' the hope of pick...

FREEMASONRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

? FREEMASONRY. The project for the formation of a Victorian Grand Lodge does not meet at the present time with the unani mous support of tho craft. Wo have received a coiiunmri oation on thosubject, signed -'A Muster Mason,' whichistoo lengthy for insertion m this column, but a quotation or. t.avo will serve to indicate tho writer's opinions upon the matter. He felt at first disposed to sympathise in the movement, but now, after due deliberation, ' believes it is a mistake, and, if carried out, will be instrumental in bringing about disunion, disorder, and general disorganisation.' He also objects that ' if Victoria succeeds in establishing a Grand Lodge, New South Wales, South Australia, Western Aus tralia, Queensland, Tasmania, and New Zealand will bo immediately aiming at the same thing ; and, if successful, each will be introducing and adopting peculiarities in their -workings, until there be such a divergence from the ancient landmarks that members will be unable to recogniso e...

SOCIALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

SOCIALITIES. A party of aborigines oh the inarch do not hamper themselves with much luggage. When dinner-time comes round the men throw themselves on the ground, and watch with the stolidity of the savage the efforts of their wives and daughters to provido for their wants. One woman lights the lire, while another runs \ip a tree, pulls the blinking 'possum from his hole, and throws it to a third, who quickly roasts it upon the burning embers. The frugal repast ready, the men gather Around the fire, pull, -in the absence of knives and forks, the smoking marsupial to jjieces, and chuck over their shoulders to the squatting squaws in i he rear such portions as they do not feel inclined to eat themselves. It is unlike the dinner party of the white man, both from its absence of ceremony and the rude simplicity with which tho claims of the women to attention are ignored. Wo, with the vamish of civilisation on us, pay publicly the most j-olito attention, if not to our own ?wives and sister...

BOTANICAL EXCURSIONS IN TASMANIA. No. III. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

BOTANICAL EXCURSIONS IN TASMANIA. No. III. Sitting by one's fireside on these frosty days— and in Tasmania they are often very keen — when the mountains are capped with snow, and the bush is too wet to admit of rambling — it is very pleasant to live past happy outings over again, either in the examination of plants, or insects, or shells, each of which has its own peculiar interest, or by the perusal of some cheery, chatty book, whoso author has feelings identical with your own. Such was my good luck ere'l sat down to continue my rambling notes anent our wild flowers^ As I read I seemed to hear.jjgain the golden beetle's hum, the soft sweet songs of the robin and the little Avhite-eye, the ripple of the limpid rills which, to use the words of Akenside — ' Gushed through the trickling herbngo, to tho thirst Of summer shielding tho delicious draught ? Of cool refreshment ;' the joyous twitter of the swallows as they skimmed madly over head, the many rural songs and odours which are se...

This is liuniau -naturo, is it?'— Sami'sqn Brass. I 'meet sometimes peoplo who say 'What is this Fan tokini of yours ?' and I reply, ' If you moan to say Fan toehceny, why don't you say it ?'

Great hea vens, Professor, can you be so ignorant ? The chief features of it were developed in the time of the Pharaohs, for in the tomb of P.

Sketches Pen with WAR IN FIJI. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

WAR IN FIJI. Some interesting and graphic letters have appeared- in The Argus, from the special correspondent of that journal, giving accounts of the war now carried on by the King's Government to suppress the insurgent savage tribes. There are, , it appears, two armies in the field contending with the rebellious moun taineers of Viti Levu — one on the Ba coast under Major Fitz gerald, whose object is to punish the murderers of the Burns family, and the other on the Upper Rewa under the King in person, whose object is to reduce to subjection- the mountain tribes and their numerous allies who were concerned in a recent treacherous massacre of a number of Cakobau's native subjects. The muster of the King's army is thus described :— A NATIVE 'TANG A.' . ? In the course of my rambles through the cotton plantations of this country I last week came upon the head-quarters of King Cakobau's army on the waters of the Upper Rewa, .about 30 miles by river from the coast of Viti Levu.

YACHTING IN SYDNEY HARBOUR. FROM A LADY'S POINT OF VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

YACHTING IN SYDNEY HARBOUR. From a Lady's Point op View. ' 'Twns in tho prime of summer time.' A week or two ago I saw an article with the above heading in one of our Melbourne newspapers; and settled myself down to the comfortable reading thereof. 'Here,' thought I, 'is what will waft to me the savour of delight, will give me an after-taste of joy.' But what the notes to Allison's Jlistorj/ of Europe are compared to Uarri/ Lorrequer that very useful article was to my recollections. It waa a good article, to be sure ; but it was statistical, and therein fitted not my. frame. So I rashly ex claimed, 'If they would only listen to what/ call yachting in Sydney Harbour, it would be a different story from this. But I suppose they would scorn it.' Being overheard, I was, in a manner, 'pounced upon,' and desired to 'try them.' To this I'incaxitiously agreed, and now-offer The Australasian Sketchcr my experiences. ' There are a great many yachts in Sydney Harbour, but they may bo all divide...

LAKE COLONGULAC. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

LAKE COLONGULAC. Lake Colongulac, in the immediate vicinity of Camperdown, belongs to a cluster of lakes, of which Lake Korangamite, depicted in the second number of The Australasian Sketcher, may be regarded as the centre. There can be little doubt that at some remote geological epoch the whole of the immense plain between Winchelsea and Framlingham, a distance of about 70   miles, constituted an extensive inland sea, out of which emerged,   as islands, the various hills; volcanic and otherwise, which now emboss this fertile and beautiful tract of country. But with the gradual upheaval of the continent, and the modifications which its climate underwent in the lapse of ages, the waters of this inland sea slowly contracted until they merely occupied the chief depressions of the plain ; and thus, instead of one immense   sheet of water, there came to be visible only a chain of lakes,   varying in magnitude and outline, and varying al...
