The Sydney Morning Herald of February 18 reports:— A charge or attempted murder, arising out of v^ry painful, but, unfor tunately, not uncommon circumstances, was investigated by Messrs. Hunt and Greville at the Water Police Court on oaturdaylast. A young man named George Baldwin, aged 28 years,, and a groom by occupation, was charged with having attempted to kill a mannamed William Stratford, by shooting at nun with a revolver. The attempt was a most determined one, as appeared from the , prisoner's acts, as well as from his BUDsequent reported avowals of '? his intention. The evidence snowed that until November last the prisoner lived, with his Q+.i111? child, in Brisbane. About that time the prosecutor, . n5FatV?rd« who is a carpenter, went to lodge with them, but - ai««r living in the house three weeks he and the wife suddenly eioped, taking with them the prisoner's child.and furniture.

Sketches with Pen. THE AUSTRALIAN JUVENILE EXHIBITION, BALLARAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 March 1878

, ^ _ ^ ^ ^ ^^ ? _j% THE AUSTRALIAN JUVENILE EXHIBITION, BALLABAT. The Australian Juvenile 'Industrial Exhibition of Ballarat,. for the display of works of airt'and industry by the youths of this and adjoining colonies, was opened on February 18 by His Excellency the Governor. It was held in the Alfred-hall, and was the result of some months of preparation. It claims to be the first of the.sort held in the world. We have had intercolonial and international exhibitions in plenty, but never a display exclu sively made up of the work of the young. The project originated' with Mr. Bannister, now the secretary of the Executive Committee.' He mooted the -.idea in a published letter, and the proposals submitted by -him at once commended themselves to the good people of Ballarat, who are known all the continent over for public spirits and {enterprise. The youth of the seven colonies of Australasia wefe^inyited to come and compete, andthe call seems to have been responded to with a fair amou...

DESPERATE ENCOUNTER WITH A BURGLAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 March 1878

DESPERATE ENCOUNTER WITH A BURGLAR. The Sydney Morning Herald, /February 25, reported : — About 3. o'clock yesterday morning an exciting encounter took place between Mr. Archibald Thompson, J.P., of Wylde-street, Potts Point, and a man, name unknown, . who has not yet been apprehended. It appears that Mr. Thompson's daughter was disturbed by hearing a noise upstairs, one got up, and opened her bedroom door a little, .and saw a man with a revolver in his hand on the stairs. He came into her bedroom, when she got out through the balcony-window, and into her father's bedroom, and alarmed him. Her father got up, and went in search of the burglar, whom he found in the bathroom on the landing, concealed by a curtain. The man fired at Mr. Thompson, which the latter returned from a revolver, but without the shot taking effect. The man then came out from his, hidingplace:and rushed. down stairs; on his way down he again fired at Mr. Thompson, who returned the fire a second tune, and. again f...

THE MEETING OF KING TAWHIAO AND SIR GEORGE GREY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 March 1878

THE MEETING OF KING TAWHIAO AND SIR GEORGE GREY. . Tnt New Zealand Herald publishes 'the following particulars, from its special correspondent, of the meeting between Tawhiao, the Maori King, arid Sir George Grey, the New Zealand Premier. The occasion was a great one. Probably such a gathering could not have been got together but ; for the fact that the natives came to mourn over Takerei te Itau, a great chief of Waikato, who died a few weeks ago; but otherwise the natives attach much importance to the event. Now comes to see them the man who has been most prominent in the history of New Zealand during their lives— the man who was the close friend of Potatau Te Wheoro Wheoro, to whom they all look back with reverence, whose son is now their king; the man who was known to so many who have now passed away. On our side the motives and wishes for the meeting are clear enough — the desire that there shall be established a good feeling between the races ; that an asylum for murderers and ...

THE RECLAMATION OF THE WEST MELBOURNE SWAMP. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 March 1878

THE RECLAMATION OF THE WEST MELBOURNE SWAMP. The works have reached such a stage of advancement that they are expected to be completed in three months from the present date. 'The area formerly covered by brackish water is now quite dry. and the ancient haunt of the black swan and the wild ducks has been permanently destroyed. An embankment four miles long shuts out the overflow of the Yarra and the Saltwater, and the drainage of the Moonee Ponds is now confined to a canal, which follows the irregular course of the embankment. Two outlets have been provided for the canal — one on the Saltwater River, a short distance below the bridge ; the other on the Yarra, below the wool-cleansers' boxes. A line drawn down the middle of Dudley-street to the Yarra very nearly strikes the mouth of the canal. Not less than 700 acres of swamp have been reclaimed. The new land is of very irregular shape. Its boundaries may be said to be the railway line, the Saltwater River, and the Yarra, but in sever...

PRESENTATION TO THE DISCHARGED CITY POLICE MAGISTRATES. At the City Police Court offices, on February 28, testimonials in the form of illuminated addresses were presented by the justices of the peace of the central bailiwick to Messrs? Sturt and Call, the metropolitan police magistrates; dismissed by the Government during the present crisis. There was a numerous attendance, and Councillor Pigdon, the mayor, presided. The addresses expressed appreciation of the zeal, ability, and impar tiality Messrs. Sturt and Call had at all times displayed in the discharge of their onerous duties during their long service as stipendiary magistrates for the city, and of their uniform courtesy and urbanity towards'the honorary magistrates. The addresses also contained an utterance of deep regret by the justices at their being now deprived of the valuable assistance of Messrs. Sturt and Call, and concluded with best wishes for their, future ? welfare. In Mr. Call's address an additional line or two e...

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

We are unable to report any improvement in our political situation. The condition of crisis still exists, legislation is at a standstill, the public service is demoralised, and, owing to the shock given by the action of the Government, trade is paralysed, works of construction are suspended, property is depreciated, employment is scarce, and both capital and labour are being driven from the colony. As always happens in these cases, the greatest pressure and distress nave fallen on the working classes, many of whom are left destitute, owing to the lessened employment. Up to the present time, however, no effort is made to terminate the crisis — which, as it answers the personal ends of those accountable for its production, is likely to be maintained until the people assert themselves, and declare that they will no longer allow their best interests to be made jthe sport of designing and unscrupulous politicians. In contimiing our chronicle of recent events, we may: resume the record at...

A NATIVE ATTACK AT NEW GUINEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 March 1878

A NATIVE ATTACK AT NEW GUINEA. A letter from Mr. Goldie to a resident in Sydney gives the following full particulars of the attack on Captain Daufield, of the schooner Mayri, at South Cape, New Guinea. He was lying in his cabin, when he happened to cast his eyes up and caught sight of a spear coming right down on his heart. He gave a sudden spring, but not sufficient to escape, as the spear went through his side and nailed him to the deck. He seized the spear, broke it, and released himself. Three other spears in a like manner were thrown, all of which wounded him, one through the thigh, another through his right hand, and a fourth through the shoulder, but, fortunately, none dangerously. He received his worst wound from a large trade knife, which cut the sinews right across the foot. The cabin was swimming with blood, but Captain Dadfield fought for his life bravely. The arms were all loaded. He tried several times to get on deck, but the attempt showed him that to dp so would be t...

The Theatres. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 March 1878

At the Theatre , Royal the engagement of Messrs. Cheevers and Kennedy, tAvo American delineators of Dutch and negro character, Avas folloAved by the production of Boucicault's ' After Dark.'' The management of the Princess's lately brought out Bret Harte's Californian play of 'Two Men of Sandy Bar.' The chief part, that of Sandy Morton, Avas made the opportunity of introducing a neAV American actor, Mr. Ogden, to the Melbourne public. Of the manner in Avhich the principal parts were ? played, ' Tahite,' in The Australasian, said :— ' Sandy Morton, the a agabond, is a difficult part to play, but Mr. Ogden, who played it, is a very good actor ; therefore it Avas Avell played. He made the picturesque roughness conspicuous without introducing any coarseness. He let the manliness shine through the drunkenness. His degradation, although it had loAvered him, had not deprived him of. his self respect, and thus he came ivell out in the end. When ever feeling had to be.shoAvn it was fittingly...
