Sketches with Pencil. FANCY BALL CHARACTERS BEING " TAKEN." [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 1 September 1877
FANCY BAM. CHARACTERS BEING ' TAKEN.' ; A characteristic incident of attendance at a fancy ball vis' the inevitable visit to the photographer's to be taken. It is not given every day to the ordinary citizen in these humdrum times to figure in attire of classical, or mediaeval, or renaissance periods, and it is very properly felt that when the opportunity comes it is to be made the most of. Above all, the aid of pictorial art is to be called in to fix and perpetuate the otherwise fleeting glories of the transient hour, to remain as a reminiscence of beauty and a joy for ever. This involves a visit to the photographer's, and in view of the diffidence naturally accompanying the feeling of strangeness in an unaccustomed costume these visits are usually made in company. Our engraving exhibits such a group at the studio awaiting their turn before the magio lens. One of the number is, indeed, actually in foous. He is a gallant of the roystering days of the 'Merrie Monarch,' whose memory is...

Sir Charles Gavan Daffy ia among the moat prominent of Victorian statesmen. A man of culture, of literary ability, aud possessed ot, no. mean powers of eloquence, it would be. strange, indeed, -had he not taken a leading position among, the politicians of a new country. He came to this colony with, a reputation whigh, though attended with Borne disadvantages, marked nV?li\ ou* 'rona tbe crowd of ordinary men, and drew to him, the sympathy and admiration of a large section of tbe 'community. It is, however, with his career as an Australian statesman that we have principally to do, and a brief reference to tbe stirring incidents of . his -iaTlp years,.' for which we are indebted to that useful publication Men of (lie, Time, will suffice. Sir ChaTles Gavau Daffy was born at Monaghan iu 1816. He ia...
MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 1 September 1877
The great musical event of the last few weeks has been the opening of a season of Italian opera at the Opera-house on July 28. To the band arid chorus of the Melbourne Opera-house were added the band arid chorus of the Italian opera company whose 'season in Sydney had just closed ; and, in addition to the principals of that company, there came express from Milan a new prima donna, Signora Aritonietta Link, who made her appearance on the first night of the season as Alice in 'Roberto il Diavolo.' The new prima donna has a powerful soprano voice of not very extensive range. It has about it the freshness of youth, and is infused with the tone of true sympathy.

We quote the following notice, written by ' Andante,' the musical critic of TJie Australasian, of the performance of 'FauBt,' given at the Opera-house on Saturday,...

It represents Lake Wakatip, in the province of Otago, the point of view selected being a bold eminence, forming a sort of natural terrace at the south end of .the lake, and constituting one of the finest foregrounds which an artist could desire, while the Bcene itself is simply magnificent, and has inspired' ;Mr; 'Gully to give us a work of art which may be pronounced to be a true poem. The mountain spur upon which the spectator is supposed to be standing, and , which is illuminated by glints of golden light from the rising' sun, is tapestried by the rich vegetation of the country, the i graceful ferns, the cabbage-palm/ the toi-toi, and other1 shrubs ; the beautiful foliage of the white and black birch being conspicuous to V t...

' -' ' L _ ' -,..».. mmj, ...y] At the Theatre Royal, on July 28, Miss Ada Ward and Mr. G. D. Chaplin began an engagement, which nw continued successfully. We extract from the critique oi 'Tahite,' in The Aitstralasian, the notice of their firsc appearance:— 'Miss Ward played Rosalind. When she played it first, some months ago, I spoke of it, as 1 thouguj it deserved, very approvingly ; and as it is now ever e much better than it waa then— good as it was— I speaic cw it accordingly. Indeed, I do not think I should like it to be played differently from the manner in which now saio Ward plays it. I do not quarrel with those who have tneir own views of how it should be played. If you, for example* Bhould like it to be more hoydenish, more kitteny. ram crepitating — very well ; have your hoyden Rosalind, yo kitten Rosalind, your Rosalind -of cdrruscations. I Pre^ J and I think the majority of people prefer, a g®ntJym°S and graceful Rosalind, a Rosalind who glides, who spea*» softly who ...
