DISCOVERY OF EXTRAORDINARY CAVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 2 September 1876

DISCOVERY OF EXTRAORDINARY CAVES. INTELLIGENCE has reached us, says the Bathurst Free Press of the 29th July, of an extraordinary discovery, in the shape of several large caves containing fossil remains, supposed to be those of some extinct animals, having been made in the limestone country between Cowra and Canowindra. We have at present before us a letter written by one of the party of four by whom the discovery was made. From that letter we take the following information : — The entrance to cave No. 1. was accidentally discovered by the party when engaged in work in the bush, and is in country of limestone formation. The mouth of the cave is very large, but the roof gradually falls, and progress can only be made upon the hands and knees for the space of about 20ft., when there is another abrupt rise, and a very large cavern is entered. The astonishment of the exploring party on discovering this was great, but more astonishing discoveries were before them. Entering the roomy space...

PORT ESPERANCE, TASMANIA, WITH THE THREE ISLANDS, FAITH, HOPE, AND CHARITY. Our engraving gives a good idea of the charms of Tasmanian coast scenery on the south of the island, where it is penetrated by deep indents of the sea, broken into capes and bays and channels, and studded with picturesque islands. The view is that of Port Esperance, which lies on the west side of D'Entrecaateaux Channel, and opposite Bruny Island, which is seen lying low on the horizon beyond the pretty little forest-clad islets which dot the entrance to the port. , ?

Sketches Pen with THE BIRTHDAY BALL AT GOVERNMENT-HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 September 1876

THE BIRTHDAY BALL AT GOVERNMENT-HOUSE. The ball given by His Excellency the Governor and Lady Bowen, at Government-house, on the evening of September 8, was a marked succeed and was thoroughly enjoyed by the numerous assemblage ot guests. Though given in honour of Her Majesty's birthday, . the celebration was really of a twofold character, as this was the first public ceremonial of a general nature held in the new vice-regal residence. Regarded in either sense, the ball was an unequivocal success. The wisdom of postponing the ball until ib could be held in the new building was manifestly apparent. The gatherings held, in former years in the Town-ball and Exhibition-buildings have been highly enjoyable, bat the ballrooms had, bo to speak, to be improvised, for the occasion ; whereas at Government-bouse particular attention has been paid to providing every accommodation for holding ceremonials of this kind, which form a not unimportant part of vice-regal duties. The ballroom is a hand...

DEAD IN THE QUEENSLAND BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 September 1876

DEAD IN THE QUEENSLAND BUSH. Where the trailing boughs of the tea treeB droop, Where the vines hang feBtooned in curve and loop, Where lilies float, and the tall reeds stoop 'Neath the tread of the lonely crane, There's a human form oh the bare, hot sand, That the sun in its iury has scorched and tanned, That a pitying zephyr at times has fanned — It feels neither pleasure nor pain. Poor, lost, and forgotten ! No mourner's wail Was heard when you parted, no face grew pale With weeping and watching. To tell the tale But a festering body lies there. Those rotting lips, did they ever press A mother's lip ? Did a kind careBS From a woman's hand ever smooth a tress Of that bleached and tangled hair? To floe from Death had he vainly tried ; Across the. broad plains, ever side by side, They had walked together, and, stride for stride, Death kept up with him still. He drank of the water he so had craved, He dipped his bonds in the stream, and laved His heated face ; and he Bhouted, 'Saved!'...

THE CORANDERRK ABORIGINAL STATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 September 1876

THE OORANDERRK ABORIGINAL STATION. Abkoial correspondent of The Argus lately paid a visit to this station, and from his interesting letters describing what he saw we extract the following : — I rode over to the station, about four miles fromBealesville, the bridle track fains through muddy swamps and over scrubby ranges. Arrived there, I proceeded at once to inspect the dwellings of the aborigines domiciled on the station. Mr. Halliday, the superintendent, accompanied me, hut it was quite plain to be seen tbat no preparation had been made for my inspection. The occupants of the cottages were perfectly confident and independent, and at the same time perfectly agreeable. They did not act as if they looked upon our call as an intrusion, and neither did they ostensibly accept it as a compli ment. They smiled and chattered in a perfectly natural and self-contained manner, and held up their babies for admiration just as young matrons in any other sphere of life might be expected to do, ex...

MURDER AT EMERALD-HILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 September 1876

MURDER AT EMERALD-HILL. A shocking case of homicide, which appears to have been premeditated murder, occurred on September 5 at Emerald-hill. About half-past 3 o'clock Constables M'Cormack and Ryan were attracted to the north end of Cecil-street by the noise of voices in loud dispute, and repeated cries for the police. Tbey found that tbe scene of the disturbance was a small weatherboard house, tenanted by Robert Davip, a wbarf labourer, and a woman named Mary Heeearty, who lived together as man and wife. A ?woman named Ellen Francis, about 30 years of age, was standing outside the door, and Davis was standing inside, clothed only in his shirt, and bleeding from a wound on the right side of bis chest. The woman Heggarty was also inside the door, and with ' her Ellen Francis was still carrying on an angry altercation. Davis was able to say, with reference to Francis, 'She has stabbed me,' and then becoming unable to Bupport himself from the rapid loss of blood he was suffering, he sa...

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 September 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 respecting the gold-fields of Victoria. Tbe miners are steadily employed in the various districts, and besides the work carried on in payable mines, a large amount of prospecting is being done in numerous quartz-claims on Sandhurst, Stawell, Ballarat., and other places. The principal point of interest respecting Stawell mines just now is whether or not a new reef recently discovered, at about a depth of 1,700ft., in the claim of the Magdala Company, will pay. A reef was discovered about 12 months ago at about the same level in the same claim, but it was a long time before a trial crushing of the stone, sufficient to enable a positive opinion of the value of the reef, was made, and then it was found the stone was not payable ; but the second new reef was just then discovered, and tbe question since then has been about whether it is payable or not...

A USEFUL INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 September 1876

A USEFUL INDUSTRY. Ix the picturesque mountain village of Healesville, there is a thriving manufactory of an interesting kind. Its main products are axe, pick, and hammer handles, and wheel Bpokes, of which it turns out about 100 dozen a week. The timber used is a species of eucalyptus, which is Baid to be peculiar to tbe Upper Yarra Ranges, and is called indifferently dogwood and Australian hickory. It is a timber that is admirably suited to the purposes of the manufactory. It is dense, tough, perfectly white, and capable of receiving a high polish. A 12 horse power engine performs the bard work of the manufactory. In the first place, the trees brought in from tbe forent are ' broken up' (as the trade phrase goes) in a pit saw. Then the planks into which ic has been sawn are crosscut by means of a circular saw inro lengths corresponding with those which the finished articles of manufacture are to have. Next these pieces are cut longitu dinally into pieces out of which the intended ...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 September 1876

In musical matters there is nothing to mention of special interest, save the production by the Philharmonic Society of Randegger's 'Fridolin' on September 12. The Argus critic, in noticing the performance, wrote : — The thanks of the large number of people who form the Melbourne musical auience are due to Mr. R. B. Gaunter, who thought about them when he was recently listening to the great musical -performances by means of which England so honourably distinguishes herself in these days. His present of the score and subsidiary parts to the Melbourne Philharmonic Society has led to the enjoyment of one of the most pleasing performances that has been given by that society during recent times, and the whole affair speaks well for the esprit cle corps which animates the actively musical of the leading society in Victoria. We have rarely hdard at the Town-hall a better set of players than those who formed the band, and therefore the lavish and high toned colouring of the orchestral work w...

On the opening day the weather was beautifully fine, with a pleasant southerly breeze : and the attendance numbered fully 10,000 persons, including His Excellency the Governor and family. The new grand stand, which was uBed for the first time on this occasion, was much admired. The programme, was commenced with the Hurdle Race, for which there were 10 starters, and the three placed were all Victorian nominations.

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 September 1876

There has not been much change in the course of theatrical matters. At the Theatre Royal, Mrs. Scott Sid dons has appeared very successfully in several fresh parts, and 'retained her hold on the 'public favour undi minished to the end of her -engagement, which will long be remembered as a purple patch in the history of the drama in Melbourne. We quote from 'Tahite,' the dramatic critic of Tlie Australasian, the following notice of Mrs. Scott-Siddons's performance in 'King Rend's Daughter,' and 'The Honeymoon.' Of these 'Tabite' says :— 'Neither of them had been played for a long time, so that, although they are quite the opposite of strange to those who have any sort of experience of the Melbourne stage, thoy are probably new to a good many other people, especially Hera's most poetic drama. -And in this the part I of Iolanthe may be regarded as among the tenderest and subtlest of dramatic creations. She is a being whom it is nearly, impossible to represent upon the stage with an abs...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 September 1876

The delay occasioned to the business of the country in Parliament by the want of confidence motion proposed by Mr. James has been ended by the rejection of that resolution. The second reading of the Electoral Act Amendment Bill was moved by the Chief Secretary on August 24. The bill proposed to increase the number of members of the Legislative Assembly from 78 to 84, to create nine new electorates, and to alter the boundaries of many of the existing divisions, with a view of curing the anomalities and inequalities which now mar our electoral system. The Government announced that it would accept an affirmative vote on the second reading as a substantial approval of the scheme of distribution in the main, but intimated that amendments on the schedule would be accepted in committee. The Opposition in their criticisms of the measure admitted that a redistribution of the electorates is necessary, but objected to many of the proposed alterations of the boundaries as confusing, and they al...
