THE LATE REV. DR. CAMERON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 January 1878

THE LATE REV. DR. CAMERON. The death of the Rev. Dr. Cameron took place at his residence on the Esplanade, St. Kilda, on the 17th December. For the last 18 months the rev. gentleman had been suffering from heart disease and dropsy. A holiday was. forced upon him in 1876, and from a Christmas trip to New Zealand he returned considerably improved, but fell to work too soon. Early in the present year he had to give up preaching. . He delivered his last sermon about six months ago, since then having been more or less confined to bed. Dr. Andrew Cameron was chiefly known to the public of Victoria as a minister of the Presbyterian Church. In Scotland, Ihowever, whence he came in 1870, he had followedthe career of a literary man much longer than that of a public 'preapher. He was born at Edinburgh in 1822. From the university of his native city Mr. Cameron went to the office of the Witness newspaper, then under the editorship of a man now much better remembered for his works as a geologist...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, JANUARY 19, 1878. OUR DEFENCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 January 1878

SATURDAY, JANUARY 19, 1878. OUR DEFENCES. At the iiresent time, in view of the disquieting news we have lately received relative to tho possibility of England becoming embroiled in the war in the East, it is worth while asking how the various colonies stand in regard to their external defences. At the request of the colonies two eminent engineer officers, Sir W. Jebvois and Colonel ScBATcniJSY, were permitted to come here to report-on the defences of such of the colonies as chose to avail themselves of their services. They first visited New. South Wales, and the report presented by Sir W. Jervois, containing a complete scheme of defence, was warmly taken up by Sir H. Parkes, Avho ' was in oflico at the time. , He,' however, owing mainly to political conditions, failed to get the support of Parliament to one essential part of the scheme— the purchase and maintenance of an ironclad — but prompt orders were telegraphed to, England for large supplies of torpedo material. This, when work...

New Books THE FUTURE AUSTRALIAN RACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 January 1878

^kA^^^^^M; THE FUTURE AUSTRALIAN RACE.* In tin's;, curious little brochure Mr.. Marcus Clarke Ima sought .to show that the future of a race, at any given epoch, can be read in the physiognomy of its present. Ho reviews a! large number of English historical and typical portraits, ranging from the time of the Tudors down to tho present' day, with the view of shoAving that the various periods shared in a common charactor whicli materially changed in passing from one period to another. He also speculates on the manner and extent in whicli the race 2-hysiocnoniy is , affected by external conditions, food, climate, and habits of life:», Freely applying the principles thus collected to tho future of Australia, Mr. Clarke foresees ji' luxurious and stupendous civilisation ' in Queensland and the northern islands. 'All beneath this line will be a Republic, having the mean climate and, in consequonco, tho development of Greece The intellectual capital of this Republic will bo in Victoria. The...

THE BERRY FALLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 January 1878

THE BERRY FALLS. In the hitherto) 'almost 'unknown country of Crbnjingalong, lying to the north-east of Gipps Land, and dividing it from the western boundary of New South Wales, lie hidden treasures of scenery and fertility which the march of settlement will ere long unfold to the general view. At present, its sparse inhabitants— clustered, most of them, near the New South Wales border — labour under serious inconvenience through the lack of commu nication for dray traffic between their far-off location and the nearest points in North Gipps Land, being thus compelled either, as is often done, to smuggle their goods, or to pay upon them the oppressive border duties. imposed by the tariff— the one course vitiating their morals, the other aggravating their burdens beyond what they are able- to bear. Even the more easterly regions of Croajingalong had been comparatively unexplored until the probability of gold-finding induced the Government, at the commencement of this year, to send out...

EXTRAORDINARY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 January 1878

EXTRAORDINARY ACCIDENT. The sinking of the floating baths in the Murray, at Echuca, on December 30, is thus described by the Riverine Herald :— 'About htilf-past 6 o clock on Sunday morning several gentlemen, regular attendants at the baths, were enjoying their morning ablutionary exercises, m the course of which they.swam out as far as the pontoon bridge. Returning, one of them (Mr. Crabb, of Hare street) had succeeded in reaching the inside of the framework, when he suddenly felt something hard touch his neck. Thinking the circumstance rather strange, he looked up, and,' to his astonishment,, found the whole structure sinking, and pressing him down. With a desperate effort he flung himself clear, and swimming out of the bath, raised the alarm. It was known that JUrs. Godegast (the owner of the baths) and her children resided on the baths, and were in their private rooms. The first duty was, of course, to save them, but the difficulty was how to do it, as the gentlemen, being inpur...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 January 1878

The holiday time of Christmas and the New T^ear found us in the midst of serious political difficulties. The condition of crisis and deadlock which was looming ahead of us throughout the session had now become a realised fact, and when , Parliament adjourned for the holidays the deadlock was ^already in 'existence. The Appropriation Bill for the year i had been sent up from the Assembly to the Council, containing included in it one item that appropriated £18,000 for payment of members. The Council had taken. the objection expected, and had thrown out the bill on' the ground that it contained a matter of public legislation on which the Council claimed a right to pronounce an opinion. The bill being rejected, the Assembly adjourned for six weeks, and a state of apprehension and alarm, excited mainly by violent language used by the Chief Secretary (Mr. Berry), weighed heavily on the community, and exerted a very depressing effect .on the holidays. , -;It is necessary that we give the a...

THE ZOOLOGICAL-GARDENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 January 1878

THE ZOOLOGICAL-GARDENS. Thjuik i is no place of public resort in or near Melbourne in , which a few holiday hours can bo spent more pleasantly- than iu the Zoological and Acclimatisation Society's grounds, in.- tho ltoyal-park, and none to which' the same space of time can bo devoted -with equal profit. The grounds, oven if regarded merely as a public garden and park, are scarcely excelled by any other of our city reserves, and certainly by none on which so littlo is expended. They contain fine avenues of well-grown natiA'e and foroign trees, pleasant shady walks, and pWty of turfed area on which, to sit and read, or talk, or eat basket lunch, while amply protected against the too ardent gaze of the mid summer sun. The shrubberies all about areMn thriving con dition, and the floAver-beds and borders are a mass of brilliant colour. It is not. only that they are. in good case, considering, the character of the season — they can be truly said to be in capital condition, without any qua...

The Theatres. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 January 1878

The account of the theatres for the month must be a description of the' various pantomimes. At one, indeed, the Princess's — which haB been beautifully decorated and re- opened by Mr. L.M.Bayless after a long period of disuse — no pantomime has been produced, the lessee relying on the amusing efforts of Messi-3. Baker and Farron in their character pieces for public support, an expectation which has. been fully realised. The three other theatres, however, have brought forward pantomimes during the Christmas season. That at the Theatre Royal has for its title ' The Forty Thieves,' and is another adaptation of that often- dramatised story. In respect of point of dialogue it has not much to boast of, oven in its original form, and the local matter which has been interpolated has but ? small claim to be considered wit. There is the army, as usual, ? this time an army of robbers. The dresses, indeed, are very pretty, and the marching is well managed, but, with the exception of about half ...
