The long contimianco of tho pantomime season at three of the theatres makes our notice of the places of anmse ment very short.

^^'fjfesfmX SPORT INC ^ kTSJ^sk1 There is very little indeed to report in the way of sports of any kind. In most kinds of outdoor amusements there has been a lull, and events. have been few. The usual Kensington-park races passed ,off very pleasantly on January 26. Trumpeter won the Hurdle Race, with Little Snowden second, and Red Gauntlet third. -, Camel won the Flemingt on Handicap, after a fine finish with Peter, Anvil, and Firebell, who finished in that order behind him, and all close together.

Sketches with Pen THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 February 1878

THE MONTH. Our illustrations of ' The Month' contain a portrait of ' Mrs. G. B. Lewis,' the popular and attractive actress who made so marked a hit in the pantomime of '?'Robinson- Crusoe,' at the Academy of Music, and who is one of the best burlesque actresses ?we have had in Melbourne. Mrs. Lewis's ? connexion .with the theatre in Melbourne is of old date, and she won her earliest laurels as Miss Hose Etlouin. She has great versatility of talent, although it is in light, sparkling burlesque that her vivacity, brilliancy, and dash attain their best, effects. Another cut gives the ' lie appearance of Mr. G. K. Ireland,' at the Princess's Theatre. This event took place' on Saturday, January. 526, when Mr.. Ireland, after an absence of about four years, again came before the Melbourne public, in the drama of the,' Mati.iii the' Iron Mask.' We note the acting of Mr. Ireland under the head , of ' The Theatres,' and here need only mention that Mr. . Ireland met with the hearty reception ...

THE VICTORIAN REVOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 February 1878

THE VICTORIAN REVOLUTION. Ik the fable what was death to the frogs was capital sport to the boys, and so the miserable proceedings which have caused so much distress in this colony are thus pleasantly and cleverly treated as matters of jest and laughter by the humorous author of ' Specialities m the Qucemlander : — Revolution ! The word has been spoken, and the very pronouncing of it is of itself a pronunciamento. Thank heaven we are safe (as yet), and are peacefully absorbed in swimming matches, filth-fevers, and musical disunion. Our withers and our tocsin are alike unwrung. We cannot even get up a crisis, much less a coup d'ttat. Tea- table gossip and club scandal are our nearest approaches to history. But victoria has leaped at a bound into history dignity (?), and the cry of revolution has gone forth. It is 1793 down there. No ; we are wrong. It is the year 1 of the Republic, and this is the month of Vend&niaire. A baa lea Bullocratea I Can anyone tell us what is the Vi...

MURDERS BY BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 February 1878

MURDERS BY BLACKS. The following account of a murder by blacks in the north is given by the Carpentaria correspondent of the Brisbane Courier, writing on December 20: — 'A horrible murder by the blacks has just been reported. The unfortunate victim, Mr. William Batten;was travelling with horses from the Calvart River, where, with his partner, Mr. de Lautour, he had been mustering horses. The party, consisting of the above-named gentleman, a stockman, and a black boy, separated at Settlement Creek, about 50 miles west of the Nicholson liiver; Mr. Batten and the stockman Aitken pushing on for Normanton with about 60 head of horses, while Mr. de Lautour and the black boy remained behind. The two former reached the Nicholson liiver at daylight on the 2nd hist., having travelled all night. On their arrival, they found a large number of blacks, amongst whom Mr. Batten distributed rations and several other small articles. The blacks then crossed the river, down which Aitken went about thre...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 February 1878

In a portion of our last issue we announced the measures taken by the Government consequent on the rejection of the Appropriation Bill, but for the sake of the completeness of the narrative it will be convenient now to go back to the commencement of this imbroglio. It will be remembered. that the Appropriation Bill for the year was laid aside by the Legislative Council on December 20, and immediately the Legislative Assembly, on the motion of the Chief Secretary, adjourned until February 5 without making, any provision whatever for the bills before tlie Upper House. The consequence was that only such measures as the Council could see its way to adopt without amendment could possibly become law. Among the bills which1 were amended was that continuing tolls, and as this measure was hung up during the holiday-making of the Lower House, it became illegal on the 1st January, 1878, to collect tolls anywhere, and tho . gates had to bo abandoned, to tho great financial embarrassment of the ...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1878. THE YEAR'S GOLD YIELD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 February 1878

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1878. THE YEAR'S GOLD YIELD. Our contemporary Tlie Argus has procured information on the subject of the gold yield for 1877, which shows that the annual falling off in the yearly outcome of our gold fields was last year much larger than usual. This indeed was to be expected from the dulness of the mining industry throughout the year. From all of -our -principal gold-fields came accounts of great depression and decline, and it was inevitable that .when the figures indicating the yield for the year could be 'got together, a very largo diminution must be shown. And the result was as anticipated. Tho decrease in the year's yield, which was in 1876 121,563oz. as compared with the former year, was in the case .of 1877 144,421bz. as compared with 1870. The yield for the year amounted to 792,839oz. , worth £3,171,356. The number of miners, which 'was at the beginning of the year 41,143, was at its end 218,096, . showing a decrease for tho year of no less than 3,(S7. ,...

THE LATE MR. EDWARD WILSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 February 1878

THE LATE MR. EDWARD WILSON. The death of Mr. Edward Wilson, the senior proprietor oi TheAryus, The Australasian, arid Thb Sketcher, which we bricily noticed in part of our last issue, occurred on January 10, at his re sidence, Hayes, Kent. For some time past the state of Mr. Wilson s health had been such as to occasion considerable uneasniLoo to his friends in England and in this colony. In October, 1876, he suffered something closely . resembling a paralytic stroke, 'and a second- visitation1 of a like character about eight months afterwards he accepted as a monition that his, life was drawing to a 'close ; a monition which had a saddening and depressing effect upon his active and benevolent mind, which was incessantly occupied, with plans for promoting the comfort ami happiness,- not only of those who were more immediately con nected with him by the ties of relationship and friendship, but also of 'the community to which ho belonged. For in his case the advance of years mellowed h...

A STAbRTLING BALLOON ADVENTURE. ,,7-The singular bailbbn; adventure which forms the subject of one of our illustrations is thus described by the Sydney Morning Herald of, January 14 :— After Professor Wells had failed; to make a proper balloon'ascent from the Albert ground, he directed his. efforts towards the manipulation of a Montgolfier, or what is better known as a fire ballopn, in the pavilion of the Domain. The professor, either from a want of skill or of proper appliances, and notwithstanding a favourable reputation as an aeronaut, has been remarkably unsuccessful with his balloons. On the Albert ground he was much injured and narrowly escaped being killed for want of proper attention while attempting a balloon ascent, and on Saturday night last, in' consequence of one of his balloon experiments, . ;bne young man has been badly hurt [he has since died], and another had . an involuntary trip lampngst' the clouds that created a. vast amount of consternation to those who saw him...

EXPLORATION IN NEW GUINEA. The following is a summary of the official report of Mr. H. M Chester, police magistrate at Somerset, North Queensland on his recent explorations in New Guinea:— We left Thursday Island on the 1st of December, and proceeded to Jervis Island to embark the rest of the party at Marbiak, and found two of the crew of the Neva just returned from the Fly River, where they had been with D'Albertis. One was in a pitiable condition from fever and ague. They stated that they had been told to find their own way to Somerset from the mouth of the Fly River* and that after a narrow escape from death at the hands of the Bamton islanders, the Katon natives brought .them to their village, and sent them to Cornwallis. They found the New . Guinea -natives numerous and hostile, where a year before they saw no sign of inhabitants. The Neva was frequently attacked,1 and one of the Chinese crew was wounded by an arrow.

THE HON. SIR SAMUEL WILSON, M.L.C. In presenting a portrait of Sir Samuel Wilson to our readers,   we do so as that of a man who, by his splendid donation to the cause of high-class education, and his liberal and laborious   exertions on behalf of the acclimatisation of the salmon in this colony, possesses a claim on public notice.       The subject of our engraving is the sixth son of the late Samuel Wilson, farmer and landowner, Antrim, Ireland. He was born in 1832, and was educated to be a civil engineer, but on leaving school he became engaged with a relative in the linen manufacture, and soon commenced business on his own account, renting the   Knowhead estate, with machinery, &c, for finishing linen, a   corn-mill and a farm. In May 1852, he came to Melbourne to join his brothers, who had been in the colonies for some years, and on arrival joined the rush to the gold-fields, and worked for some months at ...
