GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 February 1877

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. The following appeared in the last summary of The Argus: — The conclusion of each year affords an opportunity of ascertaining the total yield of gold in the colony during the year, and as there is no certain mode of arriving at an idea of tbe progress of mining, po far as the yields are concerned, at any other period, a careful calculation is made by The Argus immediately after the cloBe of every year. Tbe estimate is arrived at by taking the amount of Victorian gold exported in the year, tbe amount; minted, and the difference in tbe amount held by tbe various banks — who are the gold-buyers here — at the commencement and at the close of the year. The Customs returns phow that in 1875 Victorian gold was expound to the amount of 709,934oz. ISdwr., of the value of £2,841,037, and that, in 1S76 tbere was 506,22loz. 6dwfc exported, valued at £2.025,957.

SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 February 1877

SPORTING The Geelong Racing Club Annual Meeting, held on January 26 and 27, is the principal event we have to report. On the first day the attendance ? was moderate, the great maiority of those present being visitors from Melbourne. His Excellency the Governor and Lady Bowen were present. The racing commenced with the Maiden-Plate, for which seven horses started. Glenormiston was the favourite at 6 to 4. Talk of the Vale was the only other horse mentioned in the betting. Glenormiston went to the front at the start, and held his place all the way. Talk of the Vale came well at the finish, but could nob get up to the favourite, who won easily. Five horses started for the Hurdle Race, for which Jack's the Lad was scratched at the last moment, because the owner could not get any money on his horse. 'Welshman and Villisrs were the favourites. Mark Twain made the running till opposite the stand in the second round, . where Gorong went to the front, and was never, afterwards passed. Villie...

THE ROCKS AND WATERFALLS OF LOUTIT BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 February 1877

THE ROOKS AND WATERFALLS OF LOUTIT BAY By way of illustrating our views of tbe scenery of Loutit Bav we cannot do better than quote from The Argus an intereati description of the place which appeared some months ago --f Loutit Bay is a small inlet on the Bouthern coast, Bituated abo~f midway between ine ueaas ana -Jape Ufcway, being distant from the latter place about 45 miles. That is to say, you would have to cover some 45 miles in walking by the track from Lome to the Ob way. Protected in all directions bat the east by hich mountain ranges 12 or 13 miles wide, the bay is smooth in almost all weathers, but the swell rolling in from the open sea breaks continuously on the beach, forming a white belt of surf which contrasra remarkably with the monotonous aspect of the water at St. Kilda, Brighton, and other parts of Port Phillip Bay. The beach is of clean bright sand, and slopes so gradually that bathing can be safely indulged in at almost anytime. As the shores of the bay approach ...

MR. ERNEST GILES'S AUSTRALIAN EXPLORATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 February 1877

MR. ERNEST GILES'S AUSTRALIAN EXPLORA TIONS.* The triumphs lately won in other fields of geographical research have none what dazzled and diverted public attention from those explorers who have been doing their devoir iu our own inland continent. Cameron's African BucceeseB have been followed by tbe noble efforts of the Arctic men, aud no one grudges the full honours awarded to both. But it should not be forgotten thac though trade and philanthropy may follow in' the footsteps of tbe one, and many interesting problems iu physical science be resolved by the other, every new track run across the Australian bush laud is of. vast importance to the future of these colonies. The African traveller can trade his way through native tribes with a yard of bright calico, and traffic for tbe provisions be requires with strings of beads, should tbe large game which abounds not fall to his gun. Not so tbe explorer in Australia. To drag a sledge over tbe ice-floes and carry the British colours to t...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1877. LAST YEAR'S MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 February 1877

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1S77. LAST YEAR'S MINING. The returns prepared at the beginning of each year, of the yield of our gold mineB during the year then ended, all concur in putting one fact in a very clear light before us. This is, that our mining industry is a steadily declining one. Year by year the number of miners and the yield of gold are represented in smaller figures than the year before. However unpleasant the fact may be, it is useless closing our eyes to it. We are compelled by its evidence to regard gold-mining in Victoria as a form of labour that has been, in its time, a very profitable one — not so much, perhaps, to the miner himself, as to the community which it stimulated into a growth of such wondrous Tapidity. But it is one that has had its beat days, and that is now in a state of rapid decline — a decline which, if continued at this rate, would soon bring it to total extinction. The amount of gold which, according to The Argus calcu lations, was produced during 18...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 February 1877

.I y^'-in .liiii The pantomimes ran at the three theatres for several weeks. At the Theatre Royal arrangements were made for withdrawing the pantomime, so as to make way for the appearance of the new Italian Opera Company who have beon recently playing in Sydney and Brisbane. They are announced to open on the 14th inst., with Marchetti's ' Ruy Bias. ' The lessee of the Academy of Music, on withdrawing the pantomime, produced the 'Two Roses, in which two hew members of the company made their first appearance. These were Mrs. Fitzwilliams and Mr. Walton, both of whom lately arrived from England. At the Opera-houBe, the pantomime has been succeeded, after a few days of opera bouff'e, by ' Lea Danicheff,' which has had so great a run in Paria and London. As we have illustrated a scene in this play, we may state that the plot is as follows: — 'The scene is laid in Russia, and much of the interest is derived from the peculiar habits and customs of that country.

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 February 1877

Parliament has been further prorogued from February 1 to March 6. It is expected that the dissolution will take place about the end of March, and the general election during April. The election already occupies a good deal of public attention, and every day new announcements are made of intended candidates coming forward. Owing to the alterations made in the electoral distribution by the act of last session, it has become necessary for the old repre sentatives to review their position, and- in some cases to determine on which of the new districts formed out of their old one they will prefer to rely. There are various rumours about attempts to form a new Irish Catholic party, and of making a great effort, in the interests of the priesthood, to return men favourable to the revision and amendment of the Education Act. It is, however, in the highest degree unlikely that any result will come from such endeavours.. There are various symptoms of a split in the Opposition, and one section a...

THE HANGING ROCK, NEAR WOODEND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 February 1877

THE HANGING ROCK, NEAR WOODEND. Of all the places of holiday resort for pic-nic purposes open to the choice of the pleasure-seeker, there is none at once more interesting, picturesque, popular, and readily accessible than the Hanging Rock, which lies some four or five miles from Woodend.   Its situation and surroundings are interesting and picturesque. All around its stretch farm clearings cutting the forest into alternate squares, like the white and black squares of a chequer board. Away to the north and east lie bold hills scattered in groups, or linking themselves into regular chains of ranges, some covered with farm holdings, others dark with the almost unbroken forest. To the south rise high and dark the sombre masses of the Mount Macedon range, and in the middle of the crowning ridge stands up bare and rugged, the rocky, roughly fisured cone of Mount Diogenes. The Hanging Rock itself is a hill of rudely conical form, from 300ft. to 400 ft. in height, and crowded i...

MOUNT BUNINYONG ON FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 February 1877

MOUNT BUNINYONG ON FIRE. A column of smoke was seen from Ballarat, arising from behind   Mount Buninyong, between 9 and 10 o'clock on the morning of January 20, looking, says the Star, as though the old volcano had once more awaked its died-out fires. It could easily be seen,   however, that the cause was a bush fire, and as the day grew the fire extended around the base and over tbe top of the mount, till at night the hill seemed covered with fire at almost every point seen from Ballarat. This prominent landmark in a blaze would, have proved an interesting sight to onlookers had it not been for the thought that the farmers clustered around its base might lose by the fire the result of a year's labour. The fire was gazed at by wondering groups of people at every point in the streets of the town whence a good view could be obtained, and the wooded sides of the mount continued to keep up their bright appearance for four or five hours after dark, when they beg...
