AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, AUGUST 4, 1877. LAND SETTLEMENT IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 August 1877

SATURDAY, AUGUST 4,1877. . LAND SETTLEMENT IN VICTORIA. In a new country the administration of the public land is a matter of great interest. It is the estate of the com . munity, useless while it is unoccupied, but which, by its wise alienation, yields a large sum of revenue, and when passed into private handB and suitably worked becomes the basis of the general prosperity. In a colony like this, where the area of land is limited, and where a large portion is already alienated, the disposal of the residue is, of course, a matter of great concern to the public. By seeing how much year by year is sold or leased from the state, we see -what has been done in the work of settling the people on the land, and we also learn how much remains available for settlement. TMb object is secured by the annual publication of a report, in which the proceedings taken during the year under the Land Act are detailed. This report we have now before us, and purpose devoting a little attention to it, and ...

??'?'-. - - ? - * There has not been much of interest in the way of racing to report this month. The fourth meeting of the Victoria Amateur Turf Club was held on the Caulfield course on the 2nd July, which is now being made one of the best appointed racing- grounds in the colony. Ten horses started for the Open Hurdle Race, which was won by Nardoo, with Sepia second, and Devlin third.

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 August 1877

At the termination of the long run of Mr. Hopkins's successful play 'All for Gold' at the Theatre Royal, a presentation of jewellery was made to the two clever little girls of Mr. Dampier, Lily and Hose. The presents were given by Mr. Coppin on behalf of the management, and by Mr. Hopkins, the author of the piece. -After a short interval, the management, on July 14, brought out Mr. Gilbert's play 'Dan'l Druce,' with Mr. Dampier in the leading part. Of the performance, The Argus said : — The character of the blacksmith — the man who has forsaken his 'kind to brood over his. desolate hearth, who acquires a passion for gold, which, by a miracle, as it seems to him, is transmuted into a foundling who wins him back to his better self, who suffers the agony of contemplating the loss of the child he loves better than all else, and then happily learns that it is his' 'own— -is well drawn, and with many touches of homely -pathos. . Mr. Dampier has made the part a study, and it is one of his ...

Fine ARTS MR. MARSHALL WOOD'S SCULPTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 August 1877

MB. MARSHALL WOOD'S SOTJLPTTJBE. Mb. Marshall Wood, the well known sculptor, has been on a visit to Melbourne, and two or three weeks ago four . of his works were placed in the Public Gallery, where they have not failed to attract the attention and admiration they deserve. Two are portrait busts, those of the Prince and Princess of Wales; one a full-length statue of Her Majesty, on the heroic scale ; and the fourth an ideal figure, repre senting Daphne, daughter of Lad on, and beloved by Apollo, flying from whose ineffectual suit she prayed the gods to aid her, acd was transformed into a laurel tree, which became from thenceforth sacred from the lightning flash, as Byron has reminded ua, for after describing how the metal wreath which encircled the bust of Ariosto was melted by ' the electric fluid, he adds— 'Thotruo laurel wroM.h which glory weaves Is ol ilia treo no bolt of thunder cleave?.' Mr. Wood has selected 'as the period of action that in whioh Daphne is surprised by sleep,...

The drawings are in pencil, chalk, and sepia, while theru are some ambitious people who have ventured into oil and water colours.

THE LATE HON. JOHN FAIRFAX. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 August 1877

THE LATE HON. JOHN FAIRFAX. In our last issue we mentioned the death of this gentleman at Sydney on June 16. In now giving his portrait we subjoin some details about his life :—The deceased gentleman was well known   throughout the Australian colonies as the founder of the Sydney Morning Herald as a morning journal, and was for many years past, in conjunction with his sons, the proprietor of that journal. The event of his death was not entirely unexpected. Mr. Fairfax was full of years ; he had led a hard-working life, and the wonder   was that he should preserve so well. The death of his wife some two years ago affected Mr. Fairfax visibly, and when he paid his last visit to Melbourne, six months back, his friends noticed a change. He was one of the most respected of Australian pioneers, and his career can be pointed to as an example to others of how position and respect are to be secured by honest industry and enterprise. No man, probably, has occupied so...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 August 1877

' ? .-???- ? '__.^^ sesa Parliament has now entered actively on the work of the session, and several measures have been brought under its notice. The subject of the numerous petitions which have been presented a&rainst election returns has also come up for discussion, with the result we have noted below. The Government has an overwhelming majority, and, as the Opposition has announced its intention to offer no factious obstruction, but to co-operate in the work of the session, if it is able to give its support to the measures the Government introduce, there is not likely to be anything to ruffle the progress of business, unless it arises out of the nature of the proposals submitted by the Ministry. The number of Ministers has now been completed by the appointment of the Hon.: R Cuthbert, who is one of the representatives of the Sonth- Western Province, to the office of Postmaster General. Mr. Outhbert now represents the Government in the Upper Chamber. He was, on offering hi...
