CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. The principal political event which has transpired since tho opening of Parliament has been the production of the Government scheme for remodelling the constitution of Parliament. This Reform Bill, so long promised, was laid before the Assembly by the Chief Secretary on Tuesday, the 27th May, and was favourably received by the House and the country generally. In his speech Mr. Francis pointed out that if the reforms he wished to make in connexion with the Upper House wero included in the same bill with those which applied to the Assembly, the rejection by the members of the Council of the provisions applying to themselves would involve the loss of those ap plicable to the popular Chamber. It had, therefore, been decided to proceed by two bills, and to consolidate them Afterwards, in the event of both becoming law. The Ministerial plan in relation to the Legislative Council is certainly of a most sweeping nature, and it is uncertain at present how it will be r...

Sketches Pencil with A MELBOURNE BUILDING SOCIETY: PAY NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 July 1873

A MELBOURNE BUILDING SOCIETY : PAY NIGHT. Although it has not been generally believed hitherto, we think there is reason to conclude that the people of 'Victoria are no less provident in their habits than other commu nities. If we may judge from the Savings Banks returns, our working men are extremely prone to make provision for the future, so numerous are the accounts kept open by this class, aiid so handsome are the balances to depositors' credit. And there is another direction in which the national thrift operates still more conspicuously, and quite as usefully. The number of our working men who own the houses in which thej7 liye is very large, and their pro prietorship has an excellent effect upon their lives, morally as well as economically. When a man has acquired one cottage, he is already in the -way to the acquisition of a second and a third, and as the lowest stratum of the popu lation comes to be by such means enriched, the foundations of society become more and more secu...

CURIOSITIES FROM NEW GUINEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 August 1873

CURIOSITIES FROM NEW' GUINEA. Thk' following interesting notes are from the Sydney Morning Herald, July 7 : — Captain Moresby and the officers of Her Majesty's ship Basilisk have brought to this port a large and varied collection of curiosi ties, 'collected during the recent cruise off the coast of Papua or New Guinea, calculated to throw, no inconsiderable amount of light on the manners and customs of the natives of those parts, and valuable as illustrating the character of the productions of that terra incnynita now demanding so much attention. One of the first objects which attracts the notice of the visitor when he 'gains the deck is' a specimen of ..the Moruk, from Cornwallis Island, obtained from one of the resident black missionaries. 'This fine bird is a species of the. cassowary (not unlike a some what diminutive emu), and it roams about the decks at will, apparently quite at home. Among the other curious specimens of the natural history of New Guinea are two very curiouslo...

THE LABOUR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 August 1873

THE LABOUR MARKET. . A condition of activity has for some time subsisted in the labour market, and competent men have,no difficulty in finding employment. In the iron trade the moulders in two of the largest establishments demanded an increase of wages to 12s. per day, and as there was a large amount of work on hand the employers were obliged to concede the terms. The building trades are m full employ. The boot factories are in full work. Female servants' are much required. Labouring men are plenti ful in town, but the supply is still .short in the country. The clothing factories are in full work, and are likely to continue so for some months. ?' - ? The following are some of the rates of wages paid : — Domestic Servants. — For Town — Housemaids, £26 to £30 per annum ; female cooks receive from £35 to £52 per annum, male do. 20s. to 70s. per week ; nursemaids, £25 to £30 per annum ; laundresses, £30 to £40 per annum. For Hotels —Cooks, male and female, £50 to £100 per annum ; housem...

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 August 1873

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. ATiL the accounts wo recoive of the territory which South Australia is engaged in settling in the northern part of the' continent increase the interest in the great capabilities which that immense tract of country evidently possesses. The recent return of the Gothenburg with passengers from Port Darwin has enabled us tp obtain a few particulars respecting the auriferous resources of the country so far as they have yet been discovered, and also respecting the general condition and prospects of the newly-estabhshed colony in the 'Northern Territory. » Our informant is a gentleman interested in several mining claims at Yarn Creek, and having had 12 months' practical experience of the country, lie can speak with some degree of confidence about it. His impressions of the place are certainly favourable, and he lms a strong belief that a prosperous future lies before it, but at the same time he does not advise persons without an amount of capital sufficient, at leas...

SHOCKING MURDER AND ATTEMPTED SUICIDE AT HOTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 August 1873

SHOCKING MURDER AND ATTEMPTED SUICIDE AT HOTHAM. A shocking tragedy took place in Hotham on the morning of July 21. A woman who kept a small Grocery shop at the corner of Howard and Little Howard streets gave poison to her four children' and then cut her own throat. At about half-past 7 on that day a, woman named Waldock, having occasion to buy some article, knocked at the door of the shop kept by the woman in question— a Mrs. Elizabeth Shannon. The latter's eldest child, a lad of 10 or 11, who had gone to bed with his mother and the other.children; all sleeping in the same bed, was awakened by the knocking, and went to open the door. As sopn as he had done so, and light was admitted into the room, a horrible sight met his eyes.- His mother was lying on the bed, apparently dead, in a pool of blood, with her throat cut right across, and with a large ch'eese-knife in her hand, and the youngest child, an infant of 10 months, was lying near her, quite dead. He and Mrs. Waldock informed ...

THE POSITION IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 August 1873

THE POSITION IN NEW ZEALAND. 'Writing on the position of the native question in New Zealand, on July 10, the Wellington correspondent of The Argus says: — 'It is now verv evident that Ministers wiil have to meet Parliament with the statement that Sullivan's murderers are still at large, and likely to re main so. It ?will he impossible to avoid refer ence to the subject in the Governor's speech, and no doubt the Opposition will seize on the fact as a point of attack, and demand at least a full statement of all that has been done towards the capture of the murderers. All that the Government will be able to answer is, that they have made such arrangements as will prevent the recurrence of outrage and as may ultimately lead to the punishment of Purukutu and his companions. They will also be able to point out that the events following Sullivan's murder have tended greatly in the direction of breaking up the King party. # Between Rewi and the King there is now a considerable amount of dis...

Sketches pen with SIR JAMES FERGUSSON, GOVERNOR OF NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 August 1873

SIR JAMES FERGUSSON, GOVERNOR OF NEW ZEALAND. The Eight Hon. Sib James Fergusson, Baronet, who recently assumed the reins of Government as Her Majesty's representa tive in New Zealand, is in the 41st year of his age, having been liorn in Edinburgh in 1832. He succeeded to the title on the death, of his father, the fifth baronet, in the year 1849 ; and was educated at Rugby, which, under the admirable rule of Dr. Arnold, had then become the most popular of all the great public schools in the mother country. Following the fashion of the jeunesse dorie, the youthful baronet entered one of the crack egiments, the Grenadier Guards, and obtained his captaincy in 1854 ; but he seems to have very soon wearied of the splendid inactivity of a military life, and he retired from the army in the following year. 'With considerable ability, a natural aptitude for business, and a fair share of political ambition, Sir James . Fergusson resolved upon embracing public life, and accordingly he sought a...

SOCIALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 August 1873

SOCIALITIES. Some years ago Bishop Perry gavo it publicly as .his opinion that tho greatest, evil of modern society was1 the absence of filial veneration in the mind of the risinggenera tion. This will be so increased and confirmed by the alarming spread of 'juvenile knowledge under the present compiilsory Education Act that something ?will have to be done for the relief of distressed parents. A little girl, from . a state school, learning her lessons the other evening, paused to ask her horrified father the following mysterious question : 'Papa,' said she, ' where would I be if I had 'the north star in my nadir V Of course, the miserable little culprit was ordered off to bed without an answer ; but what consolation was that for the wounded feelings of the offended sire 1 - ?? ' It has been contended with considerable eloquence, by a philosopher who was the oracle of his own social set, that no ugly woman can be' good, or no handsome woman bad. This proposition is as unjust to our u...

FREEMASONRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 August 1873

FEEEMASONBY. Masonic labour goes bravely on for ever, but not with out discussion as to tho best means whereby the work should be carried out, and the truth of this will be recognised by every member of the craft who thinks seriously about his responsibilities. The column- which is openp-d in this paper under the abovenamed heading shows that there are loyal brethren who pay homage tp an in violate principle, and still differ upon the minor xnatter of the best way to uphold it. One need not go far1 outside Freemasonry to find that theso apparent conflicts -are well known to men of good faith who have a common object in view, and yet take different means to -attain it. On the subject of aiv independent grand ; lodge . for Victoria there has sprung up a lively .controversy, which, to our selves, is gratifying evidence of the usoful purpose this journal serves in the general interests of the craft. In our last issue we represented fairly (by means of extracts from his letter) the opini...

THE HEW LAW COURTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 August 1873

THE NEW LAW COURTS. Is presenting coonr readers an engraving [of the design selected ior the new Saw courts, it is not necessary that we should narrate the circumstances connected with them that hare since been the subject of inquiry. The issue of the inquiry has been to confirm the original preference for the design of Mr. A. L. Smith, and the conduct of Mr. Johnson in aiding Mr. Smith in the preparation of the design was found to be improper, but not to be corrupt, i-r to have any interested motive. Coming to the designs themselves, we find that, according to Mr. Smith's design, the new court-houses will cover a large area of ground in an elevated part of West Melbourne. The front will be over lCOyards long, viz., on the east aide of William-street, from Little Bourke-street to Lonsdale-street. As the buildings form a square, they will have a depth of over 100 yards. There will be entrances from the three streets which the buildings abut upon, and from a narrow street which will b...

A SPIRIT MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 August 1873

A SPIRIT MESSAGE. According to announcement, the spirit of an individual known to fame when in the flesh as John Pagan was supposed to have delivered himself of a sermon on a sacred subject at Weber's Assembly-room, Elizabeth-street, on the evening of July 13. When in the body, this Pagan, it is stated, was a resi dent of Rochdale, England, but probably from motives of deli cacy, his latest address was not disclosed. Acting on the prin ciple for which his earthly residence is noted, he co-operated on this occasion with a 'Christian medium,' a young married woman of about 30 years of age, whose cataleptic deliverances have excited great enthusiasm in spiritualistic circles. A large crowd assembled, encouraged by the advertised intimation that admission was free, and that no collection would be made. The room was soon filled, and numbers had to turn disappointed away. The proceedings were commenced by a chapter of tho Bible being read, and a hymn sung to the orthodox tune of tho Old H...

VOYAGE OF A NATURALIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 August 1873

VOYAGE OF A NATURALIST. The Brisbane Courier, of July 7, reports :— 'Mr. J. T. Cocke rell, of Fortitude Valley, who started some 20 months 'ago in tho little schooner Naturalist, on a collecting expedition to the coast of New Guinea and the islands in and near Torres Straits, returned to Brisbane yesterday as light as a trivet — so he assures us — although he has had to ' rough it ' considerably at times during the expedition. Collecting specimens of natural history was the principal object of the voyage, and in this Mr. Cockerell hr,s been tolerably successful, as we shall be able to show on some future occasion. With respect to the reported discovery of- gold at Redscar Bay, New Guinea, Mr. Cockerell says he is confident that it is all a delusion, and whatever speci mens of gold were brought down bythe officers of H.M.S. Basilisk were not obtained at New Guinea. In proof of this he cited the case of a man named Thorngreen and some companions, whohave had a little vessel up there f...
