The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 October 1876

Since the termination of the engagement of Mrs. Scott Sid dons at the Theatre Royal she. has given two public readings, which were received with considerable approbation. She was followed at the Theatre Royal by Mr. Edwin Adams, an American actor of repute. He opened as Rover, in ' Wild Oats,' and created a favourable impression, which was greatly strengthened by his appearance in his next cha racter, Hamlet. The performance was one which deservedly obtained high commendation. His conception of the character was very accurate, and his acting was intelligent, scholarly, and refined. He afterwards appeared with great success in a melodrama adapted from Mr. Tennyson's poem ' Enoch Arden.' A benefit performance was given at the Theatre Royal on October 13 for Mr. Adams, when the 'School for Scandal' was produced, with Mr. Adams as Charles Surface, Mr. Coppin as Sir Peter Teazle, and Mrs. Scott Siddons as Lady Teazle. At the Opera-house, Mr. Emmet was succeeded on September 30 by Messrs....

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 October 1876

The great musical event of the. month has been the production by the Brighton Harmonic Society of Sir Michael Oosta's great oratorio of 'Eli,' which took place at the Town-hall on October 5. The Arqus in its notice of the performance said : — The general reading given by the members of the Brighton Harmonic Society displayed the beauties of ' Eli' in a manner that was most honourable to them, and which fully warranted all that we Baid concerning it on a former occasion. The production of the work last night was on a different scale ; it was suited to the magnitude of the subject ; it was fit for the Town-hall, and was altogether in accordance with the best metropolitan style. The whole musical picture was shown with higher lights and deeper shades ; details unnoticed before stood out bo as to show the comprehensive scope of the master's mind, which neglected no point nor forgot to give it finish ; while the chief incidents assumed that significant prominence ?which told of the thoro...

OPENING OF THE BEECH WORTH RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 October 1876

OPENING OF THE BEECB WORTH RAILWAY. The opening of the Beechworth Railway was celebrated on September 29 by a demonstration organised by the residents of the town and adjacent districts, who desired to express their appreciation of the boon of direct communication with the metropolis. The arrangements to celebrate the completion of the line were on a scale commensurate with the importance of the occasion to the district. His Excellency the Governor accepted the invitation to be present, and a large number of visitors from Melbourne and elsewhere were invited, including the Ministry and many members of the Legislature. The special train, which conveyed over 300 ladies and gentlemen, left the Spencer-street station at 10 minutes past 9 o'clock, in charge of Mr. Meikle, the locomotive superintendent. The train was a heavy one, consisting of 15 carriages, and was drawn by two powerful goods engines. Short stoppages were made at Seymour and Benalla and at Wangaratta, at the latter place ...

THE WRECK OF THE ELMGROVE. THE RESCUE OP CAPTAIN LEDDRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 October 1876

THE WRECK OF THE ELMGROVE. THE RESCUE OF CAPTAIN LEDDRA. The following interesting account of the rescue of Captain Leddra, of the wrecked schooner Elmgrove, which was lost near Rabbit Island on September . 8, we condense from The Argus of September 26 :— The Government steamer Pharos returned to Hobson's Bay yesterday morning, having on board Captain J. Leddra, of the ill-fated barque Elmgrove, which was wrecked near Rabbit Island on tbe 8th September. It was a fortunate thing for Captain Leddra that the chief harbourmaster took such prompt measures in despatching the Pharos to search for him on the report of the only other survivor of tbe wreck — the second officer, Mr. Hoyle — being received, as although several parties from Wilson's Promontory and Poit Albert were sent in search of the missing captain along the coast, they all returned without having succeeded in their object. The Pharos left Hobson's Bay about 3 o'clock on Saturday morning, and on proceeding to the Promontory C...

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 October 1876

THE NORTHERN TERBITORY. Thf, correspondent of The Argvs at Port. Darwin, writing under date Sept.' IS, said : — There is u (ailing off in the quantity; of gold shipped by tbis steamer, tbe total not exceeding l,700oz . which is accounted for by the stoppage of Scott.'s, th« Telegraph, Standard. and Hawley batteries for want of water. The claim R and plant of the Virginia Company bave been purchased by Mr. i W. E. Adcock, and have been let upon tribure to a party of .miners from Wood's Point. But though from the cause referred to the ? reefs have not turned out tbeir ut»ual average of late, there lias been considerable activity at Yam and Sandy Creeks, and tbe alluvial miners are profitably employed. Every mouth some new gully is opened to take the place of those worked out, and though there »re no notable finds to chronicle, it, is not unusual for a party of two or three to obtain as much as 20oz in a week when upon 'patch.'

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 October 1876

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. The Argus in its last monthly summary reported : — The past month has been rather uneventful in regard to the mining industry. Work has been prosecuted steadily on all tbe established gold-field?, bub no new discoveries of importance have been announced, and in tbeir absence intercut in mining affairs, has become somewhat inactive. The yields from the alluvial mines at Kingston are improving, and pood hopes aTe entertained of a new gutter found in the claim of tbe Bunyan's Freehold Company. Although called by some a new gutter, it is generally considered to be a continuation of what was known as Lewer'n lead, which appears to have been lost or missed by some of the companies who worked it, nearer its sonrce, and as so much depends on it — so far as the future success of the mining claims taken up along its supposed course is concerned — a good deal of anxiety will naturally be felt until its actual coutsb and value are decided.

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1876. OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 October 1876

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2S, 1876. OUIi EDUCATION SYSTEM. There is no branch of our public administration in which the colony takes greater interest than in our education system, and none with the results of which the public is, as a whole, better satisfied. The feeling of the pre- eminent importance of public education pervades tho entire com munity. It is felt on all sides that as in the present day the individual finds education indispensable to keep him from being left behind in the great race of life, and to enable him to hold place with his competitors, so also is a community necessitated to attend to the education of its people, if it desires to retain a worthy pos'tion among civilised nations. And, moreover, although unfortunately we are not wholly without difference of opinion on the subject of the best system of public education, the great majority of the people of this colony concur heartily and warmly in the system in force, not, perhaps, as being the best imaginable, but as th...

THE COLLEGE OF ST. FRANCIS XAVIER, KEW. The fine building now in course of erection is the property of the Society of Jesus, tbe well-known religious order, devoted to education of the higher and middle classes in the Roman Catholic Church. The Jesuit colleges are generally situated near great centres of population, and the present building is an example of the care always shown by the fathers of the order in the selection of salubrious sites. It stands on a fine commanding eminence and in the midst of large grounds of over 70 acres in   extent, in the suburb of Kew, one of the pleasantest and most healthy in the neighbourhood of Melbourne. The land was purchased from Mr. Patrick Mornane for £10,000.

THE BELUBULA CAVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 October 1876

THE BELUBULA CAVES. The government geologist of New South Wales, Mr. C. S. Wilkinson, F.G.S , has presented a very interesting account of his examination of the recently discovered caves at Belubula:--   These caves are on the purchased land of the old Belubula Copper mining Company, and are situated two miles north of the main road from Carcoar to Canowindra, 18 miles from Carcoar, and about the same distance in a north-easterly direction from Cowra. The locality is one of much interest. High hills with declivitous rocky spurs descend on either side of a picturesque valley to a clear running creek, which flows with a tortuous course for about two miles, and then joins the Liscompool Creek. Some of the hills are composed of a dark porphyritic igneous rock — an igneous rock which, in the Devonian period, upheaved and tilted those thick strata of limestone whose grey lugged masses, outcrop ing at the surface, form such an attractive feature in the land- scape. The effect ...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 October 1876

The tone of the Parliamentary session has hitherto maintained its quiet and unexciting character. The nature of the work done also has been of a very unsensational kind, and has not tended to rivet the attention of the community on the proceedings of Parliament. The chief business has been the consideration in committee of the Electoral Bill. But this has been a measure of mere detail, and the discussions on the items of its schedule, giving the boundaries of the various divisions, have not been of a very broad or philosophical kind. They have, in fact, been little more than a pretended wrangle on the part of a number of members as their turn came round to get a larger share of representation allotted to their district. They did not expect to get it, and knew well they had no right to ask for it, but went through the form of doing so merely to show their constituents how watchful they were for the interests of their districts. A few hon. members distinctly declined to take any parti...
