FROZEN MEAT FOR EXPORTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 29 September 1877

FROZEN MEAT FOR EXPORTATION. The Sydney correspondent of The Argus, writing on September 8, Baid :— ' Mr. Mort gave a luncheon yesterday at his freezing works in Dixon-etreet. Tbe special object of this entertainment was to give the gentlemen present an opportunity of tasting some of tbe meat tbat was to have been sent borne by the Nortbam, and to enable them to form their own opinion as to whether frozen meat is in any way deteriorated by the process. This meat bas now been killed and frozen for five months — a longer period than would be required for any voyage to England, and, therefore, presuming tbat tbe cold could be kept up in tbe prepared room of the ship as effectively as in tbe room at the iceworke, the me it is in tbe same condition as it would have been in had it made the voyage to tbe otber side of the world. Mr. Mort contends tbat tbe only unsolved part of the problem is as to the maintenance of cold in the ship, and this will be solved by tbe voyage of the Northam. Tb...

OLD MELBOURNE RECORDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 29 September 1877

OLD MELBOURNE RECORDS. The ancient rivalries of Batman and Fawkner as to the discovery of the River. Yarra and tbe country adjacent — a dispnte which at one time divided into two bitter factions the inhabitants of tbe little village then called' tbe'?Douttgalla Settlement, and now known r-s the city of Melbourne— have been decisively set at rest by tbe finding in tbe colonial records in Sidney of a very curious and valuable manuscript journal of an exploration sent forth in 1802 by Governor King under the charge of Mr, Charles Grimes, the then surveyor-general of New South Wales, In gathering local materials for a memoir of Captain Flinders, tbs illustrious Australian navigator, upon which he htm been engaged for tome years, Mr. J.

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 29 September 1877

The legislative business of the session is being rapidly passed through tbe Legislative Assembly and awaiting the decision of the Council. The Land Tax Bill, the Railway Construction Bill, and the Mining on Private Property Bill are the more important of the measures that have thus passed the Lower House and reached the Upper. The Kail way Bill was the first of these with which the Council was called upon to deal, and as no information was before it on the subject of the railways proposed, it decided to take evidence at the bar of the House respecting the direct line to Oakleigh, the Goulburn Valley, the Dunolly and St. Arnaud, and the Ojueenscliff lines. Evidence was accordingly taken at great length, and all the available information having been secured, the House proceeded to consider the several lines. All were passed without dis cussion, save the direct line, the Goulburn line, and that from Dunolly to St. Arnaud. The latter was passed without alteration, but the direct line wa...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1877. A YEAR'S PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 29 September 1877

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1877. A YEAR'S PRODUCTION. The part of the statistical register of the colony of Victoria for 1876, issued from the office of the Government statist, which relates to 'Production,' conveys much valuable information regarding the manner in which the work of the community is employed and the results it is made to yield. We purpose taking a glance through this return, and abstracting its more important and striking information. Giving attention first to the agricultural statistics of the colony, we note the number of holdings was 43,057, the area in occupation 13,855,003 acres, the area enclosed 12,702,051 acres, the area cultivated 1,231,105 acres. The principal crops were — wheat, 401,417 acres ; oats, 115,209 acres ; barley, 25,034 acres ; potatoes, 40,450 acres; peas, beans, «&c, 21,235 acres ; hay, 147,408 acres ; green forage, 362,554 acres ; tobacco, 1,479 .acres ; vines, 4,765 acres.

A TRIP TO SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 29 September 1877

A TRIP TO SYDNEY. Thb popular contributor to The Argus. 'The Vagabond, 'gives the following graphic picture of tbe incidents of a voyage to Sydney :—,The City of Adelaide was crowded with passengers and visitors. We are off at last and steam quickly down the bay, tbe shores of Williamstown, Sandridge, and St. Kilda rapidly melting. away in; the distance, Government-house remaining for a long time a landmark, looking, however, like a factory, and an ugly factory to boot. I stand on tbe deck and watch the distant ranges, and recognise that all I care for in tbe world I have left behind in the colony of Victoria. We soon near the Heads, and go below for onr first meal^ At this there is 'a good attend ance ; manyr turn up gaily who to-day lie wilted in tbeir berths. We have a' pretty mixed crowd on board — four or five ladies, a Catholic priest, a dissenting clergj man, an American cousin, one or two other gentlemen.^a 'variety troupe,' tbe rest all Ring men going to Sydney for the race...

THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 29 September 1877

THE MONTH. THE MONTH. THE MONTH. Under tbis head oar artist baa drawn a large number of little sketches in some way connected with the events of the month. Taus, we have the portrait of ' Mr. H. Varley,' the evangelist;, who has b9en holding; religious meetings of the revivalist character at the Town- hall and other places. These have been attended by crowded audiences. One of these forms the subject of an engraving at another part of the page. Then we have our iroa-clad turret-ship, the Cerberus, as. she was engaged under Captain Mandeville, with her steam up, exercising her crew and practising her guns down the bay. The face ot ' Tom Wray,' is well known to every old-time frequenter of the cricket.field in Victoria, bat it will be seen there no more. It is a long time ago now since Mr. Wray,, was one of the most trustworthy represen tatives of the colony in intercolonial. cricket matches, and he also took part in the match with the first All- England Eleven which visited Melbourne...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 29 September 1877

The colonial drama, written by Mr. Darrell, 'Transported for Life,' had a long and successful run at the Theatre Royal. 'Tahite,' noting the play in The Australasian, said of it :— 'The story is the very old 6be of villanV for a while triumphant, virtue being eventually in the ascendant. Some of the framework has probably been suggested by 'The Ticket of 'Leave Man.' In each, case we have a man convicted of a crime he never committed, imprisoned for a term, and then liberated conditionally.' In each case a womaniv is constant to him during his undeserved punishment. In each case the woman clings to him. when he is released, and eventually becomes his wife. In each case the real perpetrators of the crime follow their victim, do their best to degrade him by revealing his disgrace, and make attempts upon his life. The incidents, however, are so varied, and the characters bo changed, that the resem blance 'does not probably strike every one who sees the play. In Mr. Baylor's drama, the ...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 29 September 1877

The grand success of the production of Wagner's ' Lohengrin,' at the Opera-house, was fully recorded in. Jast month's issue. It was succeeded on; September 6 by Verdi's opera, 'Aida.' 27ie' Argus critic said of the opera : — ' Verdi was commanded to write for a special eyent, and he has, therefore, made his work to reflect a purely local colour. The music of people, as represented in the choral work, although not founded precisely on the pentatonic scale, has a character about it which is true to the time. The story being one in which human love leads to sorrow and to death, the mournful turn of Verdi's mind had free outlet for its peculiar bent, and* he has given us passionate strains of exquisitely beautiful tune, but not in the old form. The work was received with enthusiastic applause, the singers in the finale to the third act being ?Honoured with a double recall after the fall of the curtain. Signbra Guadagnini was an admirable Aida, though very much disguised under her tawny ...

LIFE IN FIJI. ; Some interesting glimpses of life in Fiji are afforded by a erapbic latter from a correspondent of The Argus, dated Levuka, , AUKUst 9, from which we make the following extracts : — Fiji » getting horsey — decidedly horsey. A few short montba mJo tbe only nag to be seen was one upon which the marine officer in charge of police used to disport - faia martial figure, to the delight of the little boy a and girls of this rising young colony. The question now ia not Quid rides? but rather, Who doesn't tide 1 Tbe Governor's stall;' has a perfect atud of horses. Most of them are rather three-cornered animals, but are easily ' recognieable as bore ea from their manes and tails. One of the Treasury clerks rides to and fro from office, rejoicing in breeches of the rongb-rider cut, and, but it may be a libel, ia said to Bleep with his spurs on. Our old and eBteemed friend the American consul pads about upon a mule, and with his high peaked Spanish saddle, enormous stirrups, and...
