THE DAVENPORT BROTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 September 1876
THE DAVENPORT BROTHERS. The Davenport Brothers made their first public appearance in Melbourne at the Town-hall on Saturday, September 2, in their entertainment of the mysterious cabinet and the dark seance. The hall was well filled soon after the doors were opened, and the performance was evidently waited for with a good deal of interest. Other equally successful exhibitions of the skill of the brothers were given within the subsequent week. The following account of one of these was supplied to The Argus by "A Vagabond": — Nearly all the reserved seats were taken, and the body of the hall was crowded. The galleries, however, were nearly empty. Ministers and priests of many creeds were present, anxious to see the powers of darkness ; and several noted politicians were also on hand, attracted by the celebrated cabinet trick. They would have no objection to be in one, and would not care how long they kept their seats therein. The first trick which I saw was performed by selling some "...
THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1876. VIVISECTIONISTS AND EXTERMINATORS OF ABORIGINALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 September 1876
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1876. VIVISECTIONISTS AND EXTERMINATORS OF ABORIGINALS. In a discussion that has lately been proceeding in England this journal has been called as a witness, and attempts were made to make it give evidence not quite consistent with the facts. We allude to the controversy between Professor Stanley Jevons and the anti-vivisectionists. In this dis- cussion the professor, who strongly objects to the legislative restrictions which it was proposed to impose on the practice of vivisection, suggested that those who were moving in the matter would do better, and more usefully, if they would turn their attention to the cruelties practised on human beings. He quoted the case of the Queensland natives, who were shot like kangaroos, and poisoned wholesale by &nbsp; "strychnine." This statement being challenged, and Pro- &nbsp; fessor Jevons being invited to produce his evidence, he adduced some loose and random assertions about the wholesale "shooting of n...

DESTRUCTIVE FIRES. FIRE AT THE LITHOFRACTEUR WORKS, MAIDSTONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 September 1876
DESTRUCTIVE FIRES. FIRE AT THE LITHOFRACTEUR WORKS, MAIDSTONE. Some little consternation was caused in Melbourne and the suburbs about 10 o'clock on the evening oT September 10 by two heavy explosions, which perceptibly shook the ground, and as a red glare was immediately seen in the direction of Footscray, it was surmised that either tbe new powder magazine had exploded, or that some of the buildings used for the manufac- ture of explosive materials which are located on the plains in that direction had caught fire. The Melbourne fire brigade promptly started for tbe scene, but upon reaching Footscray they ascertained that the scene of the fire was still some miles distant, and knowing there was no water available in that locality they reluctantly returned to town. The scene of the fire was the works of the Australian Lithofracteur Company, whose offices are at 8½ Little Collins-street. The works are situated between Braybrook and Maidstone, where tbe com- &nbsp; pany, have ...

TERRIFIC STORM ON THE EAST COAST. DEPLORABLE SHIPWRECKS AND LOSS OF LIFE. On Sunday, September 10, a storm began to rage at Sydney, which, before it ceased, was the cause of great destruction of &nbsp; property on land, and far greater and more deplorable losses of property and life at sea. The storm came on as a southerly wind, which in the night increased to a terrific gale, with heavy rain, and continued with little diminution throughout tbe following day. The ships Greta and Tweed, which were lying in the stream, dragged their anchors, and went on the rocks at North Shore. The steam-ferry Guinea, and several steam launches, and two lighters went asbore in the same place. The Government punt was bilged at Manly, and a yacht drifted on the rocks at Chowder Bay. Another launch was sunk off Circular Quay. The barque Dorothea was capsized off Graf ton wharf. The barque Australian Packet went ashore at LavenderBay. A boat capsized in the harbour, and one man was drowned, and a...

There iB little to state under this head except what is of a merely anticipatory character. Training for the coming Spring Meeting of the Victoria Racing Club is now . in active progress, and the iournals give daily accounts of the doings of the competitors. A meeting of the members of the Victoria Racing Club was held on October 2, when a motion was proposed for rescinding the following rules : — ' No two year old shall be allowed to run in any race wherein the course is longer than one mile.' 'No two year old shall be allowed to run in any handicap race open to horses of three years old and upwards.' The motion was carried by a large majority.
