A SOUTH SEA ROVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 January 1877

A SOUTH SEA ROVER. The following interesting account of the 'notorious Captain Hayes' is from the Hawaiian Gazette:— This somewhat celebrated'' ocean rover is reported to- have been last week at KawainK&-iftV- the yacht Lotos, of San Francisco, bound to the Navigator*' Islands. We shall not probably have th* pleasure of entertaining him in Honolulu, but a few facts in regard to his romantic career will intercut our readers. His last escapade at Manilla and Guam surpasses all his former exploits. Tbe lant we beard of him, before be turned up at San Francisco, was that tbe Spaniards bad him in prison, with evidence enough to have guaranteed the garrote of any ordinary man. But Captain Hayes was equal to the occasion, and suddenly and mysteriously appears on tbe other side of the stage, ready for another raid on bis fellow men. His first appearance at these islands was in tbe fall of 1858, wben he and bis first officer were put ashore from tbe ship Orestes. He was at that time ...

THE NEW LION-HOUSE AT THE ROYAL-PARK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 January 1877

THE NEW LION-HOUSE AT THE KOYAL-PABK. Our engraving gives a view of the fine house lately bnilt in the gardens of tbe Victorian Zoological and Acclimatisation Society to accommodate tbe specimens of the great carnivora in the collection. The middle compartment contains the splendid lion and lioness of the society, and one of the side ones has the young tiger presented by the. Hon. Mr. Sumner, and the other the young lion that was born at the gardens. From a recent article in The Argus, in which ' A Vagabond ' describes 'Sunday in the Koyal.patk,' we extract tbe following :— Tbe lions' house is, perhaps, the chief attraction in the gardens. The two specimens brought from the Cape are very fair ones, but the chief interest is centred in the small cage which contains a young lionets, born In Australia, and a little terrier, her foster-mother. I don't know why Madame Leo could not nurse her own offspring ; anyhow, this instance of boarding«out has been most successful, and the affection...

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

The Champion Race Meeting at the Flemington course, on New Year's Day, is the principal racing contest we have to notice this month. The attendance, though not equal to last year, was large. The Hurdle Race was won by Dalesman in an easy manner, with Aaron, who ran well, second, and Gaffer Grey a close third. The Two-year-old Stakes was carried off by the favourite, First King, with Lockleys second. The £100 Plate was taken by Topper. The second horse was Sheriff, and a protest was entered agaimt the winner for crossing, but dismissed. The Midsummer Handicap was won by Barmaid after a fine race, Rapid Bay second and Meteor third. For the great event of the day, the Champion Stakes, only Beven horses started, Briseis being made first favourite. The winner, however, was found in Pride of the Hills, who won by two or three lengths. Elsewhere we give a portrait of the winner. Calamia was second, and Volo third.

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

There is little to notice in reference to the theatres save the production of the Christmas pantomimes ; but we may mention that prior to the pantomime season Signor and Signora Majeroni finished a successful engagement at the Theatre Royal, during which they fully realised the highest expectations that were formed respecting them. Signor Majeroni ably upheld the reputation he gained by his performances as one of the Ristori Italian troupe. As * we have given illustrations of the transformation scenes of the three pantomimes, it is desirable to give some detailed description of those productions. THE THEATRE KOYAL. The pantomime at the Theatre Royal, in accordance with annual custom, was produced on Boxing Night, and a holiday audience was assembled larger than has ever filled the theatre before. Not only was every seat occupied from the pit to the gallery, but not a vacant space was to be found. In the dress circle, the promenade at the back of the seats was thronged. The pantomime...

EXTRAORDINARY CASE AT SORRENTO. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 January 1877

EXTRAORDINARY CASE AT SORRENTO. The pleasures of Christmas Day at Porrsea and Sorrento were not a little disturbed by a case of alleged child murder, which occurred at the latter place. It seems that on Christmas morning the yard man at the Sorrento Company's Continental Hotel, on clearing out the earth-closet connected with one of the upstairs   corridors, found there the body of an infant, apparently recently born dead. Information on the subject was immediately sent   to Senior-constable Fergus, in charge at the Quarantine police Station, and he hastened to the hotel in question. Upon in vestigation he found marks of blood in the bathroom, and also in a bedroom in which a young lady named Ellen Davey had slept the night before. He then asked to see this Miss Davey, and she was sent for. When she came he questioned her, and she made no mystery whatever about the affair. She said she had been ill for some months, and had three times consulted Mr. M'Gillivr...

FATAL STABBING CASE IN ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 January 1877

FATAL STABBING CASE IN ADELAIDE. The South Australian Register of December 30 reports :— An inquiry was commenced at the Adelaide Hospital on the evening of December 29, before the city coroner, into the circumstances attending the death of Gertrude Dudley, a young woman who died the same day, having been stabbed by her husband on Christmas night. He was only 23 years of age, and she two years his junior. Since arriving in the colony a few months ago they have not lived as amicably together as they might, and Mrs. Dudley went to service in the employ of Mr. Edmeades, brewer, Adelaide, whilst her husband was engaged in Kapunda. Suspecting her of becoming too intimate with another man, young Dudley repaired to Edmeades's house on Christmas night, and there committed the desperate deed preferred against him. William Blackwell, a seaman, said, — I knew the deceased.   She was a passenger on tbe ship Erato with me from London and Plymouth. I came out as steward of the ship. ...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 January 1877

Parliament was prorogued on December 22, and was dismissed unregretted by anyone. Its closing days were among its most disorderly ones, and everyone was glad when it was dent about its business, and no longer per mitted to obstruct the work of the country^ The tone of proceedings towards the end became,, very^fdiscreditable, and some members * who had acquired a very undesirable notoriety for disorderly behaviour, became still more reckless and offensive before the close Jof the session. The,, total number of bills initiated in both Houses during the session was 58, of which 11 were introduced in the Council and 47 in the Assembly. There grere 33 Government measures, of which 23 passed into law, including important measures Buch as the Electoral Act, the Amending Education Act, the Harbour TruBt Act, {the Public-houses Act, and others. Ten were either rejected or withdrawn. The Mining- on Private Property Bill was again throw.n out in the Council, and the Government withdrew the Rai...

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

MUSIC The first musical performance we have to notice in the order of time is the production of the oratorio of ' Eli' on the 23rd December, under Mr. Julius Herz, at the Town hall. Mr. Edward King was leader of the band, and Mr. T. H. Gruenett was organist. The principal singers were Mrs. Herz, soprano ; Mrs. Cutter, contralto ; Mr. Armes Beaumont, tenor; Mr. J. Bushelle (from Sydney), bass — his first appearance in Melbourne; and Mr. J. S. Whitworth   (pupil of Signor Cecchi), baritone — his first appearance also. On Christmas night the Town-hall presented a grand appearance, being crowded in all parts with a well-dressed audience to listen to the annual performance of Handel's grand oratorio, 'The Messiah,' by the members of the Philharmonic Society. The society mustered in great force, the choir sittings being filled by the various sections of a well-balanced chorus. The orchestra was strong at all points. Mr. Edward King was leader in the orchestra, and Mr. George ...

NEW GUINEA EXPLORATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 February 1877

NEW GUINEA EXPLORATION. An interesting narrative of the exploration of the Fly River, New Guinea, by SignorL. M. D'Albertis, is given in the Sydney Mail, from which we abridge the following account. Dr. Bennett, of Sydney, who translated the most interesting portions of the explorer s journal, remarks : — 'Tbe perilous nature of the expedition to those engaged in it may be understood when ic is known that the steam-launch Neva was an open boat of about 12 tons, and was deeply laden with stores and fuel. On leaving Somerset her complement was 10 men, three of whom were white men, one Chinese, and six men of colour. The collection of living plants obtained during the expedition was very large, and those that survived were presented to tbe Sydney Botanic-gardena. Tne collection of dried plants, together with fiuits and flowers of thoBe which only could be preserved in spirits, were forwarded to Baron von Mueller, at Melbourne, who Bpeaks very highly* of the collection, and is -now enga...
