LOST Iff THE BUSET. The perilona adventure that befel a number of passengers by the steamer Queensland on. her voyage from Newcastle to Sydney on the 29th ult. is thuR described by the Sydney Echo : — ' The vessel put into Broken Bay for shelter early in the morning, and. the discovery war then made that there was but a very small quantity of provisions on board, certainly not sufficient to last for any length of time should the gale continue, as it seemed likely to do. There were about 40 paunengers on board, 11 of whom resolved to walk nn to Sydney, being assured that the distance was only about 15 miles. Unfortunately, instead of landing at Barenjoey, where there is a road to Sydney, they, were put ashore five miles' up the bay, where they .could not find even a track, but had to make the best of their way through the buab. Tbe party Boon scattered, and Mr. Ray nnd a Mr. Lewis, of Lamb ton, soon fouud themselves alone. The weather was very unpleasant, there being a cold biting, w...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1876. FEDERATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 23 December 1876

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1876. FEDERATION. Several matters, among -which the late speech of Sir Hekcuxes Robinson at Albury holds a prominent place, have recently produced discussion on the subject of the federation of the Australian colonies, and it is natural that widely different views have been taken of the subject. Some have been able only to see the advantages which federation would confer. Others, again, can only see its difficulties. But it may readily be admitted that each of these is a partial view, and that it will be necessary to combine both points of view before the subject can be fully and .exhaustively considered. All would agree that the policy of total independence and isolation, when fully carried out, does produce some very awkward and highly absurd consequences. It is awkward and absurd for each of these colonies to act as though all the others were foreign communities, against which it has to guard itself. It is ridiculous to see them proposing the imposition of ...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 23 December 1876

One of the chief theatrical events of the month, is the appearance of Signor Majeroni in English drama. Signor Majeroni; was leading gentleman in the Ristori Italian dramatic company, and when performing in that capacity won great admiration for the power and artistic perfection of his representations. When the company left he remained 12 months in the colonies for the purpose of studying English,, so as to appear on the colonial stage. He played his first English part at the Theatre Royal as Simon in the 'Old Corporal,' a romantic drama translated from the Ttaliah. The character afforded' scope .for powerful emotional acting, and Signor Ma jeroni's representation was extremely impressive. His English was remarkably good, considering the short period he has studied the language. Since then Signora Majeroni han been performing in the emotional drama of ' Camille,' and showed much ability for parts of that kind. She is graceful and elegant, and her English only exhibits a pleasant acc...

On the first day, the first item on the card was the Hurdle Race, for which four faced' the starter, and Welshman was made the favourite, but he had hot the ghost of a show with Alice Hawthorn, who took up the running before they had gone a mile, and coming on at her own pace, she won in a canter. The Telegraph Stakes attracted a field of eight. The start was a very straggling affair, but the finish was a very interesting one, the favourite juBt pulling through from Mark and Croesus. The five on the card put in an appearance for the Cup. Old Huntsman cantered home a very easy, winner.

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 23 December 1876

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. The Argus in its last monthly summary reported : — Scarcely any matters of great importance have occurred during- the past month in connexion with mining. The industry is carried on steadily on the various goldfields, and a great deal of prospecting for quartzf reefs is being done in the Sandhurst, Ballarar, Stawell, and other districts. It was hoped that before this time some of tbe prospectors would have met with good rewards, and that one or more new discoveries of auriferous reefs would have been announced, but such has not been the case, and we have now been more months without hearing of valuable discoveries than we were for several years previously. In the Ballarat district mining is said to progress slowly so far as new developments of auriferous. wealth go, but a great deal . of what is known aB ' dead' — unremunerative — work is being done in many of the mines, which may in a short time tell its valuable tale by adding materially to the yields.
