A PERILOUS VOYAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 May 1877

A PERILOUS VOYAGE. The Sydney Echo of April 10 said :— It is very rarely that we have to uhrouicle an inBtance of so plucky a sea voyage as that which terminated yesterday by the arrival of a email ship's open boat from Howe's Island, from which place to this port she has 'a i * y.- oarried three able-bodied seamen, named respectively Alfred Brown, Charles Smith, and Michael Fitzpatrick. For Be*en- d*ya these men have been cooped up in this little craft, which seems to have Buffered little if anything from its rough H9a,Se* These men belonged to the crew of the American barque a. M. Stetson, Captain Curtif, which left Newcastle on the 16th narch last, with a cargo of 1,500 tone of coal, for San Francisco, when about 700 or 800 miles to the north-east of Newcastle the Vessel sprang a leak, and notwithstanding that eveiy endeavour was made to keep the water down by means of the pumps, the water was found upon sounding the well to be faBt gaining upon inem, and the captain after a time...

ERUPTION OF MAUNA LOA. 'On the 14fch February, between 9 and 10 o'clock in tbe evening, without any warning, a very energetic eruption, burst out from near' the sumrnit of Manna Loa, a volcano id tbe Sandwich Islands. The mountain top,' Bays tbe Hmoauan Gazette, 'had been enveloped iu heavy masses of black clouo* .and smoke during the preceding afternoon, and at half ?pas* ?- o'clock it cleared away, revealing a brilliant fiery red light on tne at.rata of smoke overhanging the volcano.

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 May 1877

The long-deferred statement of the Government policy was made public on April 26, by the publication of the address of the Premier (Sir J. M'Culloch) to the electors of Warrnambool. We extract from the address the paragraphs relating to the crucial questions of revision of the tariff and the imposition of a land. tax. ' I regret that the proposals of the Government for the readjustment of taxation failed to pass. That question demands an early settlement, and financial proposals will be submitted to the Assembly imme diately after its meeting. By all parties it is admitted that a revision of the tariff is necessary. I have always been opposed to the 20 per cent, ad valorem, duties, and I am of opinion they ought; to be considerably reduced, and that articles used in the more important manufactures which have been established should be free from duty. Obstruc tions will thus be removed from commerce, greater facilities will be given to the manufacturing and mining interests of the co...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 May 1877

A successful engagement has been played by Miss Ada Ward at the Theatre RoyaL This began on Easter Monday, when she appeared as Rosalind in ,' As You Like It.' Miss Ward subsequently played as Juliet in ' Romeo and Juliet,' as Lady Isabel in ' East Lynne,' and as Lady Teazle in ?? The School for Scandal.' As we devote an article elsewhere to the professional career of this accom plished lady, we need here only quote the opinion of The Argus critic on her personation of the part last-named. He says :— ' She showsXLady Teazle exactly as the circum stances suggest she should be shown, namely, as the high bred woman of fashion grafted upon the inexperienced country girl. There is no hoydenism, and yet there is no stiffness in her manner. There is a becoming dignity, but it is without constraint. There is all the ease of the fashionable aristocrat, but it is the ease of aplomb, not of abandon. And yet nothing could be better than the gaiety and. vivacity with which she went through the t...

THE. VOLUNTEER ENCAMPMENT. THE SHAM FIQHT ON EA8TEB MONDAY. Tm Argus reporter thus describes the sham, fight on Easter Monday :— Contrary to general expectation, the morning came in fine and clear, and the sun shone with great biilliancy all day. The heat was, however, somewhat tempered by a lifcht bretza from the south- west. The early tiain from Melbourne brought a considerable number of visitors into camp, a large proportion of them being ladies. The later trains were crowded, and early in the af leruoon there were many thousand spectators on the ground. The day's work was commenced by the various corps parading at 7 a.m., when ammunition was served out to them, aud they were then dismissed for breakfast, and to prepare ior a hard day's work before them. As the Governor was not to anive in camp before noon, orders were issued that the men should have dinnerat 11 a. m , and at a quarter to 12 o'clock parade in marching order with haversacks, and move on to the general parade groun...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, MAY 12, 1877. AUSTRALIAN ART. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 May 1877

SATURDAY, MAY 12, 1S77. AUSTKALIAN' ART. Our well-conducted English contemporary, the Builder, lately had a kindly- writ ten article on 'Art at the ' Antipodes,' in which the rudimentary efforts made in some of the Australian colonies to encourage art met with liberal appreciation. The establishment in Sydney and Melbourne of academies of fine arts and national galleries are alluded to as showing that the colonists, while compelled by their position and the work before them to give foremost attention to the practical, are by no means neglectful of the ornamental. In Victoria, the Legislature, which has done so much for the intellectual education of the people, has also been careful to make provision for their aesthetic culture. We have a well-lodged and copious gallery of pictures, which, if it does not include, as it was prevented by the circumstances of the case from including, any specimens of the works of the great old masters, at any rate has many valuable pictures by English p...
