Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 January 1877

THREE PRIZE MEDALS RECEIVED At the GREAT EXHIBITION, PHILADELPHIA. AMERICAN WALTHAM WATCHES For AUSTRALIA. Waltham watches are strongly recommended for use in Australia, as they are made with special reference to durability, and will stand all ordinary or even hard usage without injury, at the same time never fail as reliable time keepers. In case ol accidental injury, they can be repaired more economically than any others, as any wheel, screw, spring:, in fact, any part of the watch, can be supplied at once from the general office or by watchmakers who keep the watches for sale. This is owing: to the fact that all Waltham watches are made on the interchangeable system, in which similar parts in every watch of each grade are made to an exact, size without any variation whatever, nnd will always fit in their proper place without the least adjustment. This is an inestimable advantage to those livinar in remote plsce*. and is one reason for the great popularity of waltham watches among...

The Sudneu Morning Herald of December 30 reports:— Mr. Goldie, who has recently been exploring in New Guinea around Port Moresby, has returned to Sydney on account of ill- health, bringing with him a large botanical aud zoological collection of a very interesting character.

THE ALL-ENGLAND CRICKET MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 January 1877

THE ALL-ENGLAND CRICKET MATCH. The event of the holiday time which attracted the greatest amount of public attention was the match between tbe AllEng land Eleven and the Fifteen of Victoria. This took place on tbe Melbourne Cricket-ground, which, with the addition of its large and commodious grand stand, is, perhaps, as excellent a ground for a display of cricket to a large, crowd of spectators as is to be fouDd in the world. The match was unlucky in its opening day, which waB Boxing Day. This was very wet and stormy, but after some doubt and hesitation, it was resolved to make a beginning in the afternoon. The toss for choice was won by the captain of the Erjgliah team, and he elected to let his oppo nents go first to the wickets. Play did not commence until nearly 3 o'clock, when Cooper and Alexander went in to bat against the bowling of Shaw and Lillywbite. Alexander, by steady play, placed 12 to his credit before he was caugbt by Shaw off his own bowling. Gibson took the vacant ...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, JANUARY 20. 1877. COMPETITION VERSUS PATRONAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 January 1877

SATURDAY, JANUARY 20, 1877. COMPETITION VEBSUS PATRONAGE. On the occasion of the speech-day of the Church of England Grammar School Sir George Bowen took the opportunity to broach the important subject of the desirableness of substituting a regularly organised system of competitive examination, instead of Ministerial patronage, as the inlet to the public service. His Excellency was perfectly justified in maintaining that the question he referred to was not one of party politics. Its introduction on such an occasion was distinctly within the limits of that ' dignified neutrality ' which appertains to the position of representative of the Queen. To call attention to the subject at such a time and in such a manner was at the same time fully compatible with impartiality towards party politics, and evidence of His Excellency's interest in whatever concerns the colony in which he occupies so elevated a position. Moreover, the subject itself is one of great public concern, and the method r...
