Fine ARTS [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 2 September 1876

NEW PICTURES IN THE GALLERY. We do not think there will be two opinions as to the good taste and sound judgment exercised by Sir C.G. Duffy and Mr. Michie in the selection of the picture which has just been added to the Public Gallery, and which has no superior among the landscapes in. that' collection. Its subject! is a Norwegian /Fiord '??;'? the artist being M. T. Duntze; who has bestowed upon the work an amount of conscientious labour -which is somewhat rare nowadays, when the munificent prices paid for good pictures tempt men to aim at the production of striking effects by the free use of the palette-knife rather than by the patient application of the pencil. M. Duntze's charming landscape gives you the impression that he has liugered over every detail of it with a fondness inspired by the marvellous beauty of the scene ; and whether yon look at the lichens, fissures, and weather stains on the boulders in the foreground, at the ripple of the boat in the far distance, or at the ...

The matter of chief interest in regard to the theatres nas been the Shakspearian performances of Mrs. Scott oiddons at the Theatre Royal. The lady \infortunately is not supported in an adequate manner, but her acting has Placed her in a position of great popularity. She made ner first appearance r on Monday, July ? 24, firi the character of Rosalind, in 'As You Like It.' Ttie natural elegance and grace of her manners, and the archness and ; vivaoity displayed in her acting,-: nfcii the iraPBraonation a charming one; The revival:' q ^hakspeare's glorious comedy was well received.

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 2 September 1876

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH       The presentation of the financial statement by Sir James M'Culloch on July 25 afforded matter for a prolonged debate. ' When the discussion was entered upon an animated ' tri angular duel ' was fought between three ex-Treasurers — one of whom is leader of the Opposition, another sits in the corner as a waiter upon Providence, and the third sits upon the Government side of the House. The first of these (Mr. Berry) maintained that the accounts were cooked to bring out the credit balance on the 30th June, and that, supposing the revenue does not improve, and that the expenditure continues at the same rate as at present, there must be a deficiency of £289,000 at the end of the year. Mr. Service solemnly charged the Treasurer with having presented to the House a false balance-sheet. He said that if the Treasurer had shown on the 30th June exactly how much money he had the result must have been a deficit, but the fact was...

THE YARRAVILLE SUGAR REFINERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 2 September 1876

THE YARRAVILLE SUGAR REFINERY. The destructive fire which in June, 1875, burnt down the sugar refinery works at Sandridge of the Victoria Sugar Company will be still fresh in the recollection of our readers. The company were by this disastrous occurrence placed in a very undesirable situation for the time, as the loss which must occur before they could erect new buildings and again get under weigh in regard to refining would have bad necessarily a very serious effect on the connexion and progress of the company. In this emergency, however, the gentlemen directing the company's affairs proved themselves   equal to the occasion, and before the termination of the following month they succeeded in purchasing from Messrs. Joshua Brothers their refining establishment at Yarraville. Since the purchase was effected — now over 12 months ago — these works have been so extended, and their importance thereby so greatly increased, that it will not be out of place to offer our reader...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 2 September 1876

# Amongst the items of musical intelligence we may men tion that a sacred concert was given in the Independent Church, Emerald-hill, on the 1st of August, at which Mr. P. C. Plaiated was organist. His selections were much admired. The chief musical event of the year, took place at Brighton on the 2nd inat., when Costa's grand oratorio 'Eli'T was performed for the first time in this country. The beauty of the composition was at once appreciated by the audience. The Brighton Harmonic Society, conducted by Mr. Herz, has gained great credit by this highly successful effort. A concert of ballad and other popular music, under the title of ' Bose, Shamrock, and Thistle,' was given in the-Town-hall on Saturday, August 5. It will be gathered from the above emblematic title that the programme was made up of songs characteristically English, Irish, and Scotch. The singers were Mrs. Gutter, Mrs. Smythe, MiBS Pitts, Mr. West, and Mr. Lamble. Mr. Du boulay was solo concertina player, and Mr. Davi...

ALBERT BRIDGE, OXLEY, QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 2 September 1876

ALBERT BRIDGE, OXLEY, QUEENSLAND. This structure, of which we present an engraving from a photograph prepared by Mr. W. Rippon, an artist employed by the Queensland Government, was named and opened for traffic by the Governor of the colony on 5th July, and completes tbe railway connexion between Brisbane and Ipswich. It is described by Mr. Watson, of the Victorian Railway department, lately employed in inspecting tbe line, as ' a handsome and substantial structure, an imposing feature of the line, and a credit to the colony.' Tbe river, at the point necessary to be crossed, has a depth of some 60ft, with rapid current-, and in flood-times it ia loaded with heavy dtbria. To meet these difficulties, a wide span has been thrown over the deepest water, giving the bridge a somewhat singular appearance, but increasing its immunity from risk and economising its cost. The river is 450ft in width, but the massive stone abutments on .which, the . ends of . the structure rest being set back fr...

THE LATE MRS. ALFRED PHILLIPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 2 September 1876

THE LATE MRS. ALFRED PHILLIPS. Mrs. Alfred Phillips, who for so many, years has been well and favourably known, to the Australian public as an actress of the fine old comedy school now passing away, died on Saturday, August 12, at Carlton. Mrs. Phillips was born in London in 1822, her father being a Mr. Elsbee, who was in business there. Mrs. Phillips's grandfather had been one of the sheriffs of the City of London. On the death of her father, her mother, married a Mr. Gardiner, who was then well known on the Irish stage. It is probable that it was from her stepfather — her father having died when she was very, young— that Miss Elabee first, imbibed her love for the drama. She was, of course, frequently present at the performances in which her stepfather took part, and before the age of 18, having shown an aptitude for dramatic impersona tion, she determined on embracing the profession of an actress. She had received a good education, and her acquaintance with the mechanism of stage...

TERRIBLE HARDSHIPS AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 2 September 1876

TERRIBLE HARDSHIPS AT SEA. The Sydney Morning Herald of August 8 relates that about three weeks ago the ketch William and Betsy, of about 30 tons burden, sailed from Sydney, in ballast, for Broken Bay, having on board two men, Joseph Bans and his mate, a Frenchman, when off the south head of Broken Bay, the gale which was the beginning of the late tempestuous weather overtook them. Their mainsail was blown to shreds in a few minutes, and the ketch itself was driven far away to sea. For 14 days these unfortunate men were left to battle in their weak craft with the fierce wind and sea. They did all they could to keep to the wind, but sail after sail was torn into shreds until none was left. On the third day our, a heavy sea broke away the rudder, and thus rendered them utterly helpless amid the storm. The little vessel was almost broken to pieces by tbe combined forces of wind and sea. The bulwarks and stanchions were swept away, and a plank below the vessel's deck was stove in. The g...
