CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 9 June 1877

The 58th anniversary of Her Majesty's birth waB observed in Melbourne as a public holiday, but, owing to various circumstances, there was no special demonstration, and the day was far more quietly' kept than is usually the case. Other places were more fortunate. Geelong had the fire brigade competition, and ab Sydney the presence of Sir 'William Jervois and Colonel Scratchley gave unusual 6clat to the annual volunteer display, which was postponed here till these officers arrive. The Birthday lev&e held by His Excellency the Governor possessed the special feature of being the first held at the new viceregal residence. Govern ment-house, however, is too far from the centre of the city fur formal ceremonies to attract to it a very large attend ance, and hence the number of presentations made did not occupy much of His1 Excellency's time. After the levee of His Excellency the, Governor, the members of the consular body stationed in Melbourne met for the :purp6se of cele brating ...

THE SOUTH7 SEA ISLANDERS' ARROWS: ' The following important latter, 'ou the subject of the poison Raid to he used by the South Sea Islanders for Che tips of their arrows, has been addressed by Professor Halford to the editor of The Argus: — 'Sir, — A. few years ago — the date I cannot now recollect— I wrote to you on the subject of poisoned arrows, Btating that I could not get any evidence of the poiBonone nature of the matter with which the South Sea Islanders smeared their arrows.

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 7 July 1877

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. The Argus in its lust summary reported :— The news published daring tbe paBt month respecting the gold. mining industry has been of a rather uninteresting nature. - On some of the gold-fields mining is said to be very dull, but on others better prompters are reported. At Stawell, the district which is second in importance in the colony as regards quartz- roinihir, the Grown Cross Reef Company recently crushed a kiln of 1056 tons of quartz, from wnidi they obtained 2,558oz. 13dwc . being the excellent average of 2oz. 9dwt. and a fraction per ton. The crushing was considered bo good that a firmer tone was given to the Stawell mining share market generally. About a week ago the North Cross Reef Company of Stawell, who own one of the richest mines in the world, were enabled, through their splendid yields from quartz, to pay a dividend of 16.4 per share on tbe 10,000 shares of which the company is composed.

Pharos waa in readiness at the Sundridge town pier at an early hour. The weather was not at all promising at the outset of the vojage, and it was surmised by many tbat tbe trip would have been postponed, but? as tbe barometer was rising in the morning tbe Bteamer was goc ready, and Major Smith,* tbe Minister of Nines and Education, was ^ in waiting at the pier to receive Sir W.

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 7 July 1877

The production at the Theatre Royal of a drama by a colonial author, entitled 'All for Gold, or Fifty Millions, : of Money,' has been the chief dramatic event of the season. The drama is by Mr. Francis R. 0. Hopkins, a gentleman engaged in pastoral pursuits near the Murray, and is founded on the story of the Wandering Jew, as told by Eugene Sue. The story, as told by the novelist, has to be very freely treated to adapt it to the stage, but the effective ness of the treatment it has received from Mr. Hopkins is shown by the great and prolonged success the piece achieved. Much of this is due to the remarkably fine acting of the two little girls of Mr. Dam pier, who have parts in the play, and who succeeded in a wonderful manner in hitting the liking, and even stirring the enthusiasm, of the public. ' Tahite,' the dramatic critic of The Australasian, said of these clever children and their father, 'I must speak first of Mr. Dampier's little daughter Lily, who played one of the daughter...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, JULY 7, 1877. OUR DEFENCES [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 7 July 1877

SATURDAY, JULY 7, 1877. OUR DEFENCES While Europe has been witnessing the struggle in progress in the East, and has been anxiously estimating the chances of the war extending beyond .the two original combatants, we in these colonies, although so remote from the points of danger, have not been free from anxieties, or exempt from the responsibility of providing against possible peril. Some months ago two or three of the colonies, by a common impulse, applied to the Home Government for the assistance of a competent engineer officer to visit our ports and report on the best method of defence. Sir W. F. D. Jervois, ^R.E.,.' Governor of the Straits Settlements, was the officer selected for the task, and arrangements were made to afford him leave of absence for the time required. At the same time, at the request of the Victorian Government, Colonel Scratchley, E.E., was permitted to enter into an engagement with this Government to come out and reside here as permanent adviser on the subjec...

SIR W. F. D. JERVOIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 7 July 1877

SIR W. F. D. JERVOIS. There was ah»ppy appropriateness in the appointment of Sir W. Jervois to the v&caut Govsrnorahip of South Australia, which secured for the nomination the warm approval of allof tbe colonies. Sir W. Jervois was at the time visiting the Australian colonies by the permission of tbe War Office and the Colonial Office, to advise as a distinguished military engineer on their defences. It was while so engaged tbat he was made Governor of South Australia, a position which will make him a permanent resident of tbat colony for a space of time as long as the execution of tbe works he may recommend in the various colonies will occupy. He will thus be continually at hand as an authority to whom any doubtful point may at any moment be referred, and it is gratifying tbat he has taken an early opportunity of announcing bis readi ness to afford any help of this kind that may He within his power. Of the oast career of Sir W. Jervbie, we take the following notice from Men...

Parliament was opened for business with the usual ceremonies on Tuesday^ June 26. The sketch of the Ministerial policy given in the vice-royal speech was dim and vague. .It mentioned in a general way that a revised tariff, ' imposing 'some new duties and repealing others,' would be submitted,' and that a Land Tax Bill had been prepared^, '..which, /whilst fair and equitable in principle as/ a measure1 of. taxation,' 'has been framed in accordance with! the policy' approved by the country at(tne late general election.' It was mentioned that a Railway' Construction Bill^wbuld be submitted, which would appropriate the' available portion of the late loan, and that the amount would' be insufficient to meet the wants of the country. F,resh landr legislation is needed, and an Amending Land Bill would.be laid before the Legislature, increasing the area of selection,' and extending the probationary period of occupation. The subjects of civil and constitutional reform are left over to another...
