SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 14 April 1877

The last few weeks have been an active time in racing matters. For the sake of completeness we may give a notice of the proceedings of the 'Victoria Racing Club Meeting, which was begun on March 6. and was not ended in time to be noticed in our last issue. Oh the first day the attendance was very poor, owing to the threatening look of the weather. Gorong won the Hurdle Race, Alice Hawthorn being a good second, and Larrikin third. First King (by King; of the ^ing), carrying a penalty of 51b., won ; the Ascot-vale stakes; Salisbury was secondhand Pluto third. The. Brunswick Plate .was won by Peerless (by The Marquis), barmaid was a good second, and Vibration third. Six horses started for the St. Loger Stakes. Adelaide (by ranic), who was very little mentioned in the betting, proved the winner. Sibyl was second, and Aconite, who came with a fine rush, but too late to be useful, was third. Ane time, 3m. 36£s., is extremely good, considering the jeavy state of the ground. Sheriff easily ...

PAWA RIKA LITHOGRAPHIC STONE QUARRIES, WESTLAND, NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 14 April 1877

PAWA RIKA LITHOGRAPHIC STONE QUARRIES, ' WESTLAND, NEW ZEALAND. What promises to prove an important discovery was made some time ago by Mr. Docbert.y, while engaged on an expedition* to the southern part of the province of Westlaod, New Zealand. Mr. Docberty observed in the bed of a creek, near Abbey Rocks, some buge boulders of stone that had evidently; been dislodged from tbe strata on the range -above. Having some slight acquaintance with tbe appearance as well as the value of this peculiar stone, he recognised in those; boulders snch conditions ' of structure and fracture as determined him in procuring scientific opinion on their chemical, composition. He and his partner (Mr. Arthur) accordingly sent samples toWeUirjgton for analysis. The Geological department, to whom these were submitted, soon after sent them a report detailing the results of their examina tion. Acting on this, Messrs. Arthur and Dosherty made application at the Waste Lands Office, and eventually succeeded in ...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 14 April 1877

There is very little to note in connexion with our theatres. At the Royal the retirement of the Italian Opera Company was succeeded by the appearance of Miss Ada Ward on Easter Monday, as Rosalind in ' As You Like It.' At the Opera-house, .' Danicheffs ' was followed by 'Our American Cousin,' in which Mr. Lytton Sothern played in his father's great part of Lord Dundreary.

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 14 April 1877

Under the heading ' An Australian Mozart.' the musical critic of The Argus, writing in that paper of date March 23, of the appearance of a juvenile musician, said : — ' At the Melbourne Athenaeum yesterday afternoon occurred a . performance which was altogether unique— one which should be noted by the historian of musical art in Melbourne as belonging to the class of rare and phenomenal events which even in a century of time may be numbered by a single unit. Ernest Hutcheson is a little fair-haired boy, about five years and a half old, with a sunny manner and a good face to look into, which carries with! it the stamp of a fine intelligence for one so young. He is really infused by a perfect sympathy with music, and does that by intuition which even men who have become great in the art have failed to .do after .years of practice. Ernest Hutcheson plays the pianoforte as a child must play who cannot stretch his fingers to the extent of an octave, and he is such a little fellow that he...

THE VOLUNTEER CAMP AT SUNBURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 14 April 1877

THE VOLUNTEER CAMP AT SUNBURY. At the time when this portion of our issue goes to press the encampment of Sunbury formed by our volunteer forces on the estate of Mr. W. J. Clarke is still a thing of the present, and we are compelled to speak rather of its promise than of its history. A writer visiting the camp before the arrival of the forces thus described the arrangements made for their reception and accom- modation :— The ground on the banks of Jackson's Creek now presents the appearance of one of the canvas townships which were so common in the early gold-digging days of the colony, but, there is one small difference, and that is that the town of canvas is laid out on some system of regularity. Approaching it from Sunbury a fine street— three chains wide— is seen, on either side of which the tents are pitched in regular symmetry. The base of the camp rests upon Jackson's Creek, with the various brigade commands facing the front. The camp faces to the south-went, divisional head-...

AN ABORIGINAL CRIMINAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 14 April 1877

AN ABORIGINAL CRIMINAL The Brisbane Courier gives the following account of aboriginal criminal :— It will be remembered that Peter, the   aboriginal charged with the murder of Mr. Wilkinson at Wanga- wallen Creek, Upper Coomera, died in Brisbane Gaol on the 22nd.   of February. After the commission of his crime, he betook   himself to a mountainous and almost inaccessible region at the head of Nerang, the head-quarters of his tribe. A gentleman who recently visited the locality gives us some particulars in connexion with this notorious criminal. It seems that since his departure from Nerang no news had been received by his kinsfolk of Peter's fate; it was natural, therefore, that the bereaved darkies should come flocking around our informant eagerly asking for news concerning him, who says :— "When told of his   death in prison, the intelligence was received with anything but dissatisfaction. There is no denying the fact that the a...

A NATIVE MISSION SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 14 April 1877

A NATIVE MISSION SCHOOL. The Mission School at Maloga, established by Mr. Matthews upon     his Maloga property — the Riverine Herald informs us— is from all accounts doing a good work among the aboriginals of the Murray. The ' school' is designed for ameliorating the condition of the blacks by educating and civilising them as far as the limited re   sources of the institution will extend. Mr. Matthews has been agitating the demoralised condition of the native races, and espe cially those of New South Wales, for some years, with a view to arouse the exercise of philanthropy on their behalf, and the Maloga Mission School, which has been assisted by public subscriptions. is the first practical result of these efforts. There are now 16 aboriginals, including half-castes, at the school, of which 10 are males and 6 females. The aboriginals, male and female, range from 20 years down to children of both sexes of tender years, with the exception of a h...

THE DOUGLAS TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 14 April 1877

THE DOUGLAS TRAGEDY. The Cooktown correopondent of the Brisbane Telegraph, writing on February 26. gives the following account of the extraordinary massacre of white men by blacks on board the schooner Douglas :—The Blackbird, schooner, which arrived here on Saturday from Cairns, landed three wounded men who were sent to the hospital, and who appeared to hacked and cut in a most terrible manner. The story they tell is one which can hardly be equalled by tbe most imaginative writer of fiction. It appears that the Douglas, schooner, belonging to Messrs. F. B. Beaver and Co., of Melbourne, landed a general cargo in Cairns, and then proceeded on the 8th January to Chilcot Island, lying about 200 miles due east, and worked for guano by that firm. In order to obtain a favourable wind, the Douglas went south as far as Flinders Passage, anchoring on the way under Drink Island, near Cardwell. While there a canoe with three blacks came off, and were invited on board. They were supplied with t...
