STRANGE PROCEEDINGS AT SAMOA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 22 December 1877

STRANGE PROCEEDINGS AT SAMOA. (FBOM THE SAMOA TIMES.) On the eight of tbe 26 eh of September our town was thrown into a great state of excitement by the landing of a considerable number of armed men from the French war ship Seighelay, who matched down tbe road towards tbe western end of the town. Various speculations were entered into regarding tbe object of the lauding, when the American consul w«s met, and after a conversation between him and the officer in charge they wended their way still further westward, and came to a halt in front of the house lately occupied by Mr. Colmesni). Mr. Hunt, who was in charge of this house, was inside tbe fence, and intimated that that was Biitish property, and they could not enter. He was then asked if a pereoo. of tbe name of Captain Wright was io there, for if so, they wanted to arrest him on behalf of the United States consul, as a rebel against that gentleman's authority. Upon being informed that the person they sought for was not there, tbe...

Sketches with Pencil OUR COLOURED SUPPLEMENT : A BUSH TOILETTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 22 December 1877

OUR COLOUBED SUPPLEMENT : A BUSH TOILETXEi, Our artist has in this plate depicted a young girl, «rhd is performing, her simple toilette at a mountain stream^ in which a little glassy pool serves her with the purposes 'jot a mirror. The girl's attire is suggestive of rustic simplicity. and the nook which forms her sylvan dressingroonv ? is redolent of all the stillness and freshness of a mountain gully, and offers us a pleasant glimpse of a quiet,, moist, cool, natural recess, away from the glare and heat of this rather self-assertive sun of midsummer. ? .

RELICS OF OLD MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 22 December 1877

RELICS OF OLD MELBOURNE. Some ghastly remains of old Melbourne were unearthed about three weeks aito. As our readers are aware, a new maraei is being built in Victoria-streer, on a site which partly euoroacnes upon tbe old Melbourne Cemetery, and when it. was first proposea to put this land to secular use* some objections were raised on the Kround that it was consecrated and s»cted ground. However, a little further inqniry showed tbat it had no ecclesiastical cna racter whatever. The particular corner ot the cemetery tnae wa« wanted for market purposes— the southeast corner, bounded Djr Victoria and Queen streets— though within the cemetery fence, had never been consecrated, but had, indeed, been used tor wo interment of such deceased persons as were deemed unut ro «? in holy ground.

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1877. POLITICAL RESTLESSNESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 22 December 1877

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1877. POLITICAL RESTLESSNESS. If we were asked what is the marked characteristic of these colonies in their political life, we should say it' was restlessness. We are too accustomed to deal with our constitutions as children with a new doll — to try them, to teat them, to bend them into all kinds of shapes, to pull their joints/ and to find out every possible quality they possess.- Besides the practical matters of legislation and administration-;- every colony has always one or two consti tutional questions- on hand, which are regarded [as of far. more importance. ? The rights and privileges of the different Houses of Legislature.^ are . defined with laborious precision on every possible subject^ and additional minuteness is constantly- being given to the definition by the messages and conferences between the chambers to discuss questions of ' privilege. - Then we are overrun^ with constitutional reforms, with electoral bills, and similar- matters, which keep ...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 22 December 1877

The anticipated difficulty between the two Houses of Legislature, with respect to payment of members, haB been visible as a rock ahead through the whole course of the Besaion. Our voyage has now brought us up to the spot, and the ship of the state is now in the mid at of the breakers. To explain the course of events, it is necessary to look back to the- previous conditions which have brought about- the present state of affairs . The system of payment of members was originally established; and subsequently continued, by act of Parliament. Prior to 1870 the Council rejected several bills which proposed to authorise the payment, and its decision was accepted as lawful, both by the Assembly and- the country. Since then it has twice consented to temporary bills, legalising payment during the term of a Parliament, but expiring with the first session of the next ensuing Parliament; so that, while allowing the experiment to be tried, it has retained the power of vetoing the system should it...

MURDER IN TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 22 December 1877

MURDER IN TASMANIA. The Cornwall Chronicle of November 21 reports :—Francis   Shearan, the man who is suspected of tbe brutal murder of Lawrence Fallon, whose body was found in a hole upon Shearan's ground at N.W. Bay gave himself up to tbe police at Kingston on Saturday last. On the same morning the inquest, upon the body of deceased was resumed before Mr. Robert Williamson, coroner, at the police-office, Kingston. Sbearan was not present at the inquiry, but his wife, who is suspected of having been an accessory before the fact, was in the court in custody. Several witness were examined, from whose evidence it appears that an ill feeling had existed for some time past between Shearan and his supposed victim. A rumour had obtained some credence in the neighbourhood that Shearan had on a previous occasion attempted to poison Fallon. Elizabeth Young, the wife of a settler, had had occasion to pass Shearan's hut at about 4 o'clock one morning, and was surprised to see a to...

THE TELEPHONE IN MELBOURNE. The telephone, an instrument by which sounds may be trans mitted an indefinite distance by means of a copper wife and an electro-magnet, has become a common object of exhibition in America, where, according to the,report8iiithepapers;;wonderful effects have been produced. For example, an audience assembled in a public room at, Washington has enjoyed music, both-vocal and instrumental, performed in a town 20 miles away, and words spoken at one end. of the wire have been heard at the other almost as distinctly as if they had been pronounced in the same room. These accounts have been received out of America with considerable incredulity,' but believers have not' been wanting. The fame of the invention, has spread far and wideband experimenters in all quarters of the globe have endeavoured to reproduce the Washington marvels, but with only newspaper descriptions to go upon, however.the copyists, as a rule, have met with; but moderate success. ., They have; be...

It is a long time since the Christmas *' holidays were ushered m. with more satisfactory mining prospects than at present brighten, the future of Ballarat, the dulness of the past year being taken into consideration. It has been asserted that local speculators are running wild again, and instead of developing the resources of Ballarat, they are lavishing their money on Maryborough speculations': — in allusion to the recent splendid purchases of the Duke and Timor mine and a half-interest in the Try Again Company, but these moneyed men are are riot bad judges of the value of mines that have already been proved, and as alluvial mining is all but done at Ballarat, unless the City of Ballarat- Company can open up a new era, these purchases, open as they are to Ballara...
